** The Twelfth Doctor would ''seem'' to have less reason to hurt, as by the time he's "born" [[spoiler: Gallifrey has been saved, not destroyed]] so that burden of guilt has been lifted from his shoulders. But his days in the Last Great Time War still hang heavy on his heart, to the point that he has a more pronounced aversion to the military than usual in Series 8 and a ''heartwrenching'' monologue on the topic of war in "The Zygon Inversion". And loss? ''Loss?'' A key theme in Series 9 is his struggle to move on from losing people, especially loved ones, which feeds into his ChronicHeroSyndrome to sometimes bitter ends. As he is a CreepyGood fellow with NoSocialSkills, he has only one companion in his first two series, and when they are separated by [[spoiler: her death, a senseless sacrifice]], the final stretch of the season follows his temporary transformation into a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds because ''he can't take the pain anymore''. It's so bad that the only thing that fully brings him back to his best self is [[spoiler: Mind Rape]].

** Doctor number Ten, especially. "Born from war" is an apt description, and the guy sometimes comes across as just one big moving mass of pain. Hell, he can make grown men and women burst into tears just [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz_1HQY32LA by talking about his home planet]].

** The Doctor always suffers after losing his companions. Some leave, others get left behind, and some die. He always takes it hard, especially the latter, blaming himself for it and preferring to travel alone for awhile. After Amy and Rory [[spoiler:are sent back in time by a Weeping Angel and die of old age]] and River [[spoiler:refuses to travel with him permanently]], he retires and swears off traveling through time and space, settling in Victorian London and refusing to even notice strange things. Then comes Clara [[spoiler:Oswin Oswald]], only to [[spoiler:die before the end of the episode]].

*IDW Transformers series Optimus Prime. During the Stormbringer arc, his internal monologue notes that millions of years of war have started to get to him, and he's worried that the Autobots have [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope become as bad as the Decepticons]]. During All Hail Megatron, Sideswipe gives a speech about this, which inspires Prime to declare the Autobots will no longer follow this darker path and resolves to become the idealised leader he is supposed to be.

* By the end of ''{{VideoGame/Halo4}}'' Master Chief has watched Cortana slowly go crazy and when he had expected to go out in a HeroicSacrifice, she one ups him to send him back home. Despite the helmet, he's obviously in deep pain and grief at the end of the game. * ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' follows that up by reopening all those wounds when he finds out [[spoiler: Cortana CameBackWrong and has become the main villain. He tries to withdraw emotionally but is still crushed when Cortana betrays him.]]

* Ken Kaneki from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' warns the audience in the first chapter that his story will be a tragedy. He has a pathological need to shoulder all the burdens and responsibility himself, hiding his worries behind [[StepfordSmiler a smile]], and pushing away those that attempt to help him. Much of the series is spent on his struggle with his powers and nature as a HalfHumanHybrid, shifting from one extreme to another and pretty much unable to find balance in his life. In the end, [[spoiler: he becomes suicidal and makes a failed attempt at SuicideByCop]]. In the sequel, Haise Sasaki is an AmnesiacHero as a result of repressed memories and suffers from a heaping dose of ChronicHeroSyndrome. He's even ''more'' of a StepfordSmiler than before, and struggles with feelings of self-doubt and constant fear of his past coming back to haunt him.

* ''Fanfic/theOneILoveIs'': Shinji, Asuka and Rei's went through the traumatic experiences they endured in canon, but their traumas got worse because they became a LoveTriangle, and Shinji could not stand that Asuka and Rei got hurt. Still they fought to save the world and made their best.

* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Although Kaoru's lessons helped the three pilots to try to get over their past pains and open up, they still endured plenty trauma throughout the War. In particular, Asuka was so broken after getting mind-raped that she clung to Shinji because she thought he was the only thing that she had left.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': ** After his mother's passing and his father abandoning him, Shinji was raised by people did not care about him for ten years. Then he fought a War against giant space aliens where he and everyone he cared about were hurt, abused and manipulated until he was broken enough to wish for the end of mankind. And now he has to go through it again, burdened with the weight of his massive guit as he tries to not let anyone down this time. ** During an argument with Asuka related to a school trip, Misato ponders how badly Asuka was betrayed and hurt in the past by everyone and even so she still fights giant aliens that threaten mankind. * ''Fanfic/theOneILoveIs'': Shinji, Asuka and Rei's went through the traumatic experiences they endured in canon, but their traumas got worse because they became a LoveTriangle, and Shinji could not stand that Asuka and Rei got hurt.

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Shinji, Asuka and their fellow pilots saved mankind. In order to achieve that goal they risked their lives, their souls and their ''sanity'' every time they got into their giant robots, and gradually stopped being humans. And they had already endured their mothers' loss and their fathers abandonment, but in the process of saving their world they saw many people dying, including their families and most their friends.

* 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. ** She kept this ''in'' Birds of Prey, what with being held hostage by Savant and stuff like that.
