* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' is one in the comics and most adaptations, especially from the 80s onwards. The pain comes from seeing his parents murdered right in front of him when he was merely a boy, because the family decided to cut through an alley at young Bruce's insistence and ran into mugger Joe Chill.

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' is very fond of this trope, especially in regards to TheChosenOne. Both [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Colette, Zelos]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Luke]] get a ''lot'' of pain from their status as Chosen Ones.

* ComicBook/BlackCanary becomes this whenever she pairs with ComicBook/GreenArrow. Every. Single. God. Damn. Time. Their first pairing? Kidnapped by drug lords in a botched sting operation and physically tortured so badly she loses her fertility and her powers (which would eventually be restored). Rejoins Ollie after he gets resurrected? Her adopted daughter is kidnapped and Ollie himself makes her believe she's dead. Despite that, she still marries him - and proceeds to be reduced to a DistressedDamsel who's Canary Cry accidentally causes an innocent bystander's hearing loss. And then Ollie leaving to form a second Justice League team somehow devastates her so much that she breaks up the primary team that she the leader of. Suffice it to say, there are likely a lot of ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey fans who really really don't like seeing Dinah and Ollie together.

* Pretty much every character in the Warhammer40k fanfic ''Fanfic/SecretWar'' is this. But by far the worst off is the main character Attelus Kaltos who is pretty much the epitome of this trope. He suffers from severe PTSD from surviving in the ruins of his home city during a chaos invasion. And [[spoiler: having to resort to [[IamAHumanitarian cannibalism]] to survive, not just that but the death of his mother, too.]] Driving him to becoming an elite mercenary assassin and abandoning his dream of becoming a [[BadassBookworm a scholar of Imperial history.]] But this all eclipsed at the end of Secret War end when he's [[spoiler:[[UnwittingPawn indirectly]] responsible for the Exterminatus of a hive world and the billions of [[SurvivorGuilt people living on it.]]]]

* In Nick Kyme's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Salamanders novel ''Literature/{{Salamander|s}}'', Tsu'gan is deeply grieved by the captain's death and his own failure. [[spoiler:Iagon actually uses it to foment his ambition: fighting at the head of the company would assuage his hurt. And let's just say it all ends up in more hurting for Tsu'gan.]]

** Pre-Crisis Supergirl's parents sent her to Earth because Argo City was dying. She lost her parents, her home and was dumped by her cousin into an orphanage that she hated. Her Supergirl duties interfered with her personal life to the point ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1972}} she couldn't keep a steady boyfriend]]'' and had to quit a job. Often she felt torn because she wanted to live like a normal woman but her vast powers entailed great responsibilities. At one point she met an OldFlame and realized what she still felt something for him two weeks before his demise. And then she fought a dimension-eating EldritchAbomination ''[[Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths to save her beloved cousin and the whole Multiverse]]'', and got killed (although to be fair, ''[[Comicbook/{{Convergence}} her death has been undone]]'').
