Often a character will have an aspect of himself of which he's ashamed (or that society insists he should be). It might have something to do with his heritage, such as being [[HeroicBastard illegitimately born]], {{half|HumanHybrid}}-[[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] or [[InTheBlood some other inheritance considered unfortunate by society]]. It might have something to do with [[AcceptableLifestyleTargets his lifestyle]]--he's gay, or geeky, or [[CollectorOfTheStrange he collects]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick belly button lint]]. Maybe he was forced into an EmergencyTransformation which he can't undo, and he's [[StagesOfMonsterGrief been bemoaning]] "WhatHaveIBecome" Or maybe it's an obstacle he faces, like being handicapped, dyslexic or [[TheMcCoy incapable of thinking rationally]]. Could even be a matter [[LoveTropes of love]]. Whatever the issue is, expect the character at some point to receive an epiphany that leads to him embracing whatever makes him different.

* Music/SamanthaFish's "Wild Heart" is about a woman who is in love with a man, but needs him to stop trying to change her.
-->How many times do you have to see if you can tame\\
The one you can't tie down\\
The one who needs you now\\
Oh baby, why can't I get you out of my wild heart?

** When he is forced to give up the control of his empire, Kane reflects that, in an inversion of ICouldaBeenAContender, all his advantages had stolen his chance as true greatness.
--->'''Kane:''' ''You know, Mr. Bernstein, [[ICouldaBeenAContender if I hadn't been very rich, I might have been a really great man]]''.\\
'''Thatcher:''' ''Don't you think you are?''\\
'''Kane:''' ''I think I did pretty well, under the circumstances.''\\
'''Thatcher:''' ''What would you like to have been?''\\
'''Kane:''' ''Everything you hate''.
** When 'Boss' Jim W. Gettys tries to BlackMail Kane, he admits that even when he is the archetype of the SleazyPolitician, [[EvenEvilHasStandards even he has more standards ]] than Kane.
--->'''Kane:''' In case you don't know, Emily - this - this gentleman - (Kane puts a world of scorn into the Word) is - \\
''' 'Boss' Jim W. Gettys:''' ''I'm not a gentleman, Mrs. Kane, and your husband is just trying to be funny calling me one. I don't even know what a gentleman is.'' (Tensely, with all the hatred and venom in the world) ''You see, my idea of a gentleman, Mrs. Kane - well, if [[IntrepidReporter I owned a newspaper and if I didn't like the way somebody else was doing things - some politician, say - I'd fight them with everything I had]]. Only I wouldn't show him in a convict suit, with stripes Ė [[DontTellMama so his children could see the picture in the paper. Or his mother]]''. (He has to control himself from hurling himself at Kane) ''It's pretty clear - I'm not a gentleman''.

* When Bane reappeared at the Battle for Metropolis and killed the original Judomaster during ''InfiniteCrisis'', this originally seemed out of place, as he had last been seen with a clean slate after the events of "Veritas Liberat". In the collected edition, he is given this dialogue:
