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 [[EggsMilkSquick he collects 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.

** Note Del's very brief hesitation before saying "My wife likes me;" it's a beautifully subtle touch from actor John Candy as well as some rather tragic foreshadowing to the reveal that [[spoiler:[[HarsherInHindsight his wife actually passed away years ago]]]].

* ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had a rather dark and depressing example in the episode "Sideshow". Killer Croc escapes from a prison transport and ends up stumbling across a small community of circus performers living in the woods. They see him as one of their own, and even defend him from Batman when he tracks him down. Croc seems to enjoy the acceptance and peace the group offers, but is unable to deny who he really is, and ends up trying to steal the performers savings. When the sealboy, who Croc had bonded with, tearfully asks him why just as Croc is lifted away by helicopter back to jail, he can only solemny reply with this.
