*** The Donquisote’s backstory was very dark and tragic but with an unique twist. [[spoiler: Doflamingo and his brother Rocinante both experience the same tragic past but only one turn into a monster.]] Perhaps the only time in the series that Oda took Nature side in the NatureVsNurture debate. [[Note: This is before Doflamingo met Trebol, Pica and Vergo who would then nurture his evil side even more.]]

* ''Series/Lucifer2016'': Ella Lopez used to steal cars, says she has "lots of darkness" inside her, and has mentioned "voices" that she could only silence by counting cards while playing Black Jack.

** And the less said about what [[CreepyTwins Hansel and Gretel]] went through to become the completely fucked-up kids they are, the better.

* In Creator/AndreNorton's ''Storm Over Literature/{{Warlock}}'', Shann Lantee was a StreetUrchin. The only affection he got during that time was from a pet bird, that died in pain. He was at least once tortured with an AgonyBeam by a bully. And he saw people under mind-control -- a fact which he blurts out to Thorvald; that deeply embarrasses him, because it underscores how unlike the standard Survey team member's life his has been.

* In Creator/DevonMonk's ''[[Literature/AgeOfSteam Dead Iron]]'', Cedar's brother Wil dragged him west after the loss of his wife and children. Then they went on the wrong land and were {{curse}}d into {{werewolf}} form. Cedar came to find himself at the end of a bloody trail, and backtracked to find his brother's wolf corpse, its throat torn out by himself.

* Starfire from ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'' has spent most of her life as a slave to the Citadel, after being sold into it by her own sister.[[spoiler: She mentions some experiments done on her too, which were all likely horrific.]]

gets. He eventually settles down with a wife and daughter, only for ''them'' to die as well. It's no surprise Erik isn't exactly a ray of sunshine these days.
** Wolverine's past history of fighting in the American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and his past work with Team X. How much of it still happened after the CosmicRetcon is unclear, but we do get to see him escape from the Weapon X project in a flurry of adamantium and rage, so it's clear that the BroadStrokes of most versions of his origin still stand, and it ain't pretty.



* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Eggsy's father died in action, and his mother remarried a {{jerkass}} {{domestic abuser}} who would physically abuse Eggsy and his mom. At some point, Eggsy resorted to drugs and petty crimes. By extension his half-sister Daisy has this too, despite not even being old enough to speak yet: her own father is the domestic abuser and [[spoiler: her own mother nearly killed her during the Valentine's Day Massacre.]]

*** Lola, but more importantly her twin sister Chiffon DarkAndTroubledPast was revealed during the Straw Hats meeting with [[spoiler: Bege]]. Basically, Lola ran away from the wedding with the Giant Prince, Chiffon was forced to take her place but couldn’t fool them. This lead to Elbaf and the Giant army virtually out of Big Mom’s reach and Chiffon was severely mistreated by her as a result. Lola seemed fairly oblivious to her mother nature and the trouble she caused her sister. To the point she asked Nami to told Big Mom that she’s still OK.
