** Domon Kasshu eveolves from JerkAssWoobie to this. [[spoiler: Has his master betray him, his own government screws him over, he's forced to fight his brother and was convinced for a long time his own father was a viciously evil bastard, even has his eventual girlfriend eaten by a monster.]] Somehow, he manages to deal with all of it by beating the crap out of the causes of all the above and a lot of HotBlooded screaming.

* ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}''. Where to begin? His mother leaves when he is a baby, his father constantly pushes him to succeed so he can have a better life, he is blinded by chemicals and his father is murdered by the mob. Oh and the super senses? Matt can't turn them off and They make life nearly unbearable. In ''Born Again'', his ex-girlfriend sells his identity to the mob, he loses his legal license, he has all his money taken away and is reduced to living on the streets. Then in ''Shadowland'', he is demonically possessed and forced to do horrible things. Lets just say life sucks for Matt Murdock. And yet he never gives up and becomes a stronger person for it.

* Charlie Brown from ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' stopped being too bothered by things that don't turn out well for him as he's come to expect it. It doesn't stop him from continuing to run his baseball team or participating in competitions of all sorts, however, in hopes that he will one day get his big break.

* VideoGame/MaxPayne talks a lot about how bad his life is, yet he manages to keep his emotions in check through and through. And kill lots of people.
** Gulping pain killers like Pez helps a lot.
* Selvaria Bles from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''. It's hard not to feel sorry at the way she willingly put herself through hell ([[spoiler:and later sacrifices herself]]) for a man who doesn't care about her - and she probably ''knows'' it. The way she faces her fate with pride and keeps leading her soldiers to the bitter end makes her very admirable. Even in her final defeat, all she asks of the FatBastard who came to take her as a prize and steal Squad 7's merits is that he spares her men...

Willing to train the people she's being forced to bring into a trap so that they're strong enough to break out of it. Willing to go ''back'' to her world even though Marona and Ash would have welcomed her in theirs and she refused to take Ash with her when Marona offered.

Abused as a child, turned into a green monster, endured the death of ''three'' wives, chased around the world by the Army, shot into space, enslaved by an alien empire, loses the empire once he conquers it, has his RoaringRampageOfRevenge crushed by a HeelRealization, and fails to save one of his troubled sons. Man it ''SUCKS'' to be a big green badass.

Yet, he still manages to be possibly the best pilot in the series.
*** To add to it, in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny'' he finds himself useless, finds his father's sadistic ways are still cursing the universe, [[spoiler: loses his fiance twice, first due to an arranged marriage and second through differing ideals, sees a girl almost damn herself to help him, and can only watch as another dies to protect Lacus.]]

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': This is the defining trope of the series. Every good character in this manga had their woobie moment, like [[WalkingShirtlessScene Alex]] [[GentleGiant Armstrong]] who goes through a rather messy breakdown when he sees atrocities done by his troops in Ishbal, [[SupportingLeader Roy]] [[PlayingWithFire Mustang]], who starts as idealistic soldier, but is then faced with harsh reality on Ishbal, [[ColdSniper Riza]] [[ChessmasterSidekick Hawkeye]], who joins army for the same reasons as Mustang, and finds, to her horror, that killing people is not as easy as just pulling the trigger, and many more. The good part, though, is that they're all so BadAss that they just decide to live with it and [[CharacterDevelopment continue forward]].

* ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'': You gotta hand it to Ichika. He's thrown into a situation he is woefully unprepared for, his BattleHarem won't take "no" for an answer, a terrorist organization that wants to kill him and take his [=IS=] core and the guy still manages to remain cheerful and optimistic.
* ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'': Lux Arcadia's life can and has broken people far older, wiser, and stronger than he. To wit, as a small child, his mother, his sister and himself were thrown out of the imperial court for basically no reason. On the journey, their carriage crashes, impaling his mother, and when he runs for aid, people ignore him, or throw rocks, and profane curses, at a small child simply because they don't like the way The Emperor does things, leaving him to see his mother die from her injuries because he had neither the knowledge nor the tools to do anything about it, [[StepfordSmiler and does he ever resent it.]] He might well have died himself except that Philuffy of a powerful merchant house took him and his sister in, out of pity. He spends several years learning how to operate a Drag Ride, becoming the youngest Drag Knight ever, purely for the sake of gaining an audience with the Emperor, his own father, to warn him as to the deep hatred his people have for him and his policies, only to be thrown out on his ear, his warning and accomplishment ignored. To add injury to insult, The Emperor, at best, ignores the actions of his cabinet who take Philuffy, the girl to whom Lux owes his life, by force, from her home to experiment on. Experiments known to be highly cruel, and often fatal, and summarily ignores the pleas of a very powerful merchant house to have her freed. Lux, having no other option than launching a coup and taking the Emperor's army down by force, in order to rescue her finds himself betrayed by his own older brother, Fugil, who organized the coup, and then used it to kill the entire imperial court, including their father, purely for shits and giggles, meaning it would be years before Lux ever sees Philuffy again, if the Philuffy he meets and the one he grew up with are the same person, that is. On top of all that, he is left alone, and unconscious in the blood soaked court to be found and arrested, slapped with a debt equal to 1/5 the national budget, and Fugil, for his own pleasure, is supporting the remnants of the very empire that took everything from Lux so they can ''keep on taking everything precious to him away.'' As if all that wasn't bad enough, he then has memories surface, thanks to Hayes, that the coup was AllForNothing anyway as the horrific experiments were already carried out, and ''he found Philuffy's corpse,'' and Philuffy's older sister has him in InnocentCohabitation with her doppleganger to use him as a MoralityChain. And yet... ''[[{{Determinator}} he takes it all in stride]]''. Why? ''[[HeroicSpirit Because he wants to make a difference]]''.
