** In his childhood, Law saw things no one, let alone kids, should ever see: [[spoiler:his hometown being wiped out by soldiers, his parents killed by gunfire, the nun who was taking care of him, and all of his friends, likewise dead, ''and his home being burned to a crisp with his little sister still inside''. And last but not least, he had to ''hide in a pile of corpses to leave the city without getting killed himself''. At least Robin saw most of the destruction from a distance, while Law saw it up close and personal]]. No wonder [[CreepyChild he was so fucked up as a kid]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' reveals this to be the cause of [[PsychopathicManchild Juuzou Suzuya]]'s disturbing behavior. [[RaisedByOrcs Raised]] by a sadistic Ghoul as a HumanPet, he was forced to alternately murder people for the amusement of upper-class Ghouls and crossdress for his Mama's sick pleasure. Besides being subjected to torture as "reward", it's implied he was being molested when dressed as a girl. Then Mama decided it would be better if he never grew up, and [[GroinAttack castrated]] him with a hammer to prevent puberty. When [[TheHunter CCG]] rescued him, he was automatically labeled a monster and a problem child, never given any sort of therapy or support, [[spoiler: made a ScapeGoat to cover up a scandal involving an Instructor killing animals]], and then sent into the field to kill Ghouls. Little surprise he was so messed up.

** When Naoto was a child, she and her parents were attacked by someone with a sword. Her parents put her behind them to protect her from the killer, who in two strokes, quartered them and left Naoto with amnesia and a huge X-shaped scar on her chest.

[[spoiler:Later, she finds out that the people she remembered as being her parents in fact weren't at all, but simply two scientists that betrayed a facility that performed ruthless, and often deadly experiments on children.]]


Added DiffLines:

* Most of [[spoiler:L's successors]] from ''Manga/DeathNote'' would probably fit this trope, as they are all orphans who may have witnessed the deaths of their families, and are ruthlessly groomed from a young age to [[spoiler:succeed L]], with seemingly little regard to their mental health.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', 11-year-old Klara joined the Runaways in order to escape from a life where she was repeatedly physically and sexually abused. Unfortunately, a fledgling superhero team turns out to be a ''terrible'' environment for a traumatized girl, as she has to deal with two consecutive alien invasions, her best friend hulking out and nearly attacking her, a zombie infestation, and ''a house falling on her.'' And on top of that, she inadvertently learns more about her older teammates' sex lives than she ever wanted to after walking in on a game of Truth Or Dare.

** Dave had some of this too, as his brother made sex-toy puppets for a living, left hundreds of them lying around all over their apartment, set up traps which dropped heaps of puppets on Dave, and may have misled him into being involved offscreen in the production of at least one "puppet snuff film" involving a blender. Violence-wise, Bro also put Dave through TrainingFromHell with daily swordfights on the roof, and inexplicably kept the swords in question in the fridge, requiring Dave to hide food in his closet. The fanfic ''{{FanFic/Brainbent}}'' takes this to it's logical conclusion and has CPS intervene and remove Dave from Bro's custody, and many other fics have the same premise.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Mercenary Tao was very up-front about his willingness to kill children to complete a job, and it didn't matter to him if children witnessed him killing people. He, in fact, murders Upa's father Bora right in front of him, and Upa can only stand by helplessly as Tao beats Goku and leaves him for dead as well.
