* [[spoiler:[[TragicVillain Prince Hans]]]] in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. [[spoiler:Being the proverbial BlackSheep of his family and the youngest of thirteen sons meant that he was an easy target for [[BigBrotherBully his older brothers (especially Rudi and Runo, who bully Hans the most) to pick on]], and [[TheBabyOfTheBunch growing up the smallest and most forgettable of his clan]] wound up being [[FreudianExcuse the source of his issues]]. He's been been the victim of countless pranks (especially where [[BigBrotherBully three of his brothers pretended he was "invisible" for]] ''[[BigBrotherBully two straight years]]''), not to mention being pummeled, thrown off moving carts or being shoved in the mud numerous times despite repeatedly asking his brothers to stop it. And in one case, they even threw ''glass'' at him just for daydreaming. Plus, his father is an extremely stone-cold and unfeeling man who regards his youngest son with nothing but utter contempt and disgust for being a "weakling" against his older sons. By the time he's a young adult, [[DespairEventHorizon Hans has already given up fighting back as it just makes their physical abuse worse]], and is forced to use violence against his father's subjects despite his objections. But by doing this, this only accelerated his father's emotional abuse even more by saying Hans should "learn a thing or two" from his brothers.]]

* Emiya Shirou, main character of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/stay night]]. Inspired by the man who saved his life, he dreams of being a superhero who can create a world where nobody ever has to suffer. ...But before the plot kicks in, he's basically just a high schooler whose war on suffering takes the form of doing various chores and repairs for his classmates, all of whom routinely dump work on him. Some of them are polite and grateful about it... and some of them, such as [[CompleteMonster Matou Shinji]], don't even bother to pretend that they're not taking advantage of him. That said, if you actually [[BerserkButton hurt anyone in front of him]], [[BewareTheNiceOnes his more heroic side will emerge]].

** King Tommen Baratheon isn't a bad king because he makes bad decisions. He's a bad king because he can't make any decisions. Virtually everyone pushes him around. This comes about due to the decision to [[AgeLift age]] him up from being a nine year old, where his lack of independent decision-making was understandable.

He's a bad king because he can't make any decisions. decisions on his own terms as a ruler, having grown up sheltered all his life. Virtually everyone pushes him around.around, his mother undermines him at every turn and because he does not want to spill any blood, the Faith Militant runs roughshod over King's Landing. This comes about due to the decision to [[AgeLift age]] him up from being a nine year old, where his lack of independent decision-making was understandable. He's such a doormat, that the first decision he makes on his own in the series is killing himself.

*** One episode lampshades this behavior of hers. The family is kicked out of town because of Homer's drunken antics, Bart's destructive pranks, and Lisa's expensive environmental initiatives. At the townhall meeting when Marge tries to defend the family she's told she's the worst of them all for always turning the other way and acting as an enabler to their behavior.

* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' it's revealed that Jean-Luc Picard has an artificial heart because back when he was at Starfleet academy he got in a fight with a group of Nausicaans and got stabbed in the heart, almost killing him. Because he regrets this part of his past life, and especially this event which more or less crippled him for life (at least in the sense that he needs regular checkups on his artificial heart), Q offers him the chance to go back in time and allow him to not fight the Nausicaans. The {{aesop}} was, of course, that this was actually a crucial point in his life that shaped his entire career. Without the stabbing that almost cost his life, Picard never realized how fragile life is and how important each moment must be, he never got the motivation, drive and ambition to live life to the fullest and become a great man, and he instead became basically an extreme doormat who never achieved anything of any importance, never taking any risks, always playing it safe and never seizing any opportunities to advance in his career.
