[[DontExplainTheJoke The trope name is a pun on Rose Colored Glasses and being "jaded".]] In a interesting coincidence, with "rose" being a shade of pink, and "jade" being a shade of green, two colors which exist on the opposite ends of a color wheel, jade very literally is the opposite of rose.

* ''Webcomic/{{Guardian}}'' examines how Lulu of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' got her pair. She's shown to be much more innocent as a child, but after the death of Lady Ginnem, she spends time in Bevelle where she sees the hypocritical treatment of Yuna before and after Braska's success, becomes prone to resentment, and learns that any "successful" pilgrimage ends in the summoner's death anyway.

* [[CoolShades Morpheus]] from ''Film/TheMatrix'' wears these while teaching Neo that the world he once thought to be real was just a computer simulation. If you add in the greenish tint of the Matrix scenes, it becomes literal as well as metaphorical.

* In ''TwistedToyfareTheater'', main character Spider-Man befell this fate by virtue of simply living in Megoville. Being the OnlySaneMan in a world full of atomic supercrazies, several of whom routinely come over to his house uninvited, does that to a guy, to the point that he's completely unwilling to do anything even remotely heroic if he can avoid it.

* ''Literature/TheBusinessOfDying''
** Protagonist Dennis Milne originally became a police officer, because he was very idealistic and had a strong sense of justice, always trying to get bullies and criminals their just desserts and trying to make the world a safer place. But things didn't go well. Eventually, his idealism was lost, his shooting a dangerous man during a hostage situation didn't bother him a whole lot and it led to him getting into contact with Raymond Keen, starting his double-life as a hitman.
** There's also Carla Graham, a social worker at Coleman house, who also began rather idealistic and quickly learned that most of the kids sent to the home don't want help from authority, despise it and just go about doing whatever they want, because they know they can. [[spoiler: Her previously failed marriage has also left her more cynical about things like love and money, which was part of the reason why she became a call girl on the side.]]

* ''Literature/TheHeatherWellsMysteries'' has protagonist Heather wear them by the time the story starts. She was pretty wide-eyed and idealistic when she was a teenaged pop-singer, but as she got older, she lost some of this. She ultimately became jaded when she was dropped by her label for insisting on singing her own songs, her mother consequently stole her life-savings and left the country and finally, Heather also walking in on her fiancé cheating on her with another singer.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Katniss isn't exactly all smiles. Most people who grow up in the Seam wear them in fact. Most victors, too, for that matter.

* In ''KatawaShoujo'', Akira Satou is, contrary to her appearance, somewhat cynical as a result of her parents having abandoned her and Lilly in Japan to pursue a business opportunity in Scotland. Late in Lilly's route, when [[spoiler:their parents decide to have both of them come back to Scotland permanently, thus forcing Akira to break up with her boyfriend, and potentially doing the same to Lilly, despite Akira approving of her relationship with Hisao,]], Akira says "life isn't a fairytale," and that some people will have no choice but to do things that hurt themselves or others in response to life's harsher events. [[spoiler: In a subversion, if Hisao manages to play his cards right, Akira will regain her faith in love - she will go to Scotland, yes, but her boyfriend will go with her and Lilly will stay in Japan with Hisao.]]
