* Neville Longbottom from ''HarryPotter'' is a subtle example. He's usually down on himself for his lack of skill or talent with magic, and shy and quiet, but otherwise quite friendly and sympathetic to the pain of others. Harry is ''horrified'' to learn that while his own parents died, Neville's suffered a FateWorseThanDeath for the exact same reason. Reading between the lines, Neville has basically suffered unintentional emotional abuse at the hands of his grandmother all his life, constantly being compared to his father, on top of being one of the biggest victims of bullying in the school, and it is established in the series that emotions affect magic, and a lack of confidence can be crippling. At no point during the series does ''anyone'' learn this from Neville himself.

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be understood]] as a {{JustForFun/Tropemanteau}} of "{{Manga}} and {{Angst}}"; the end result of that would be something like "Mangangst".

** To begin with, our hero, Edward Elric carries on his shoulders the guilt of [[GoneHorriblyWrong resurrecting his mother as a horrific THING and believing he killed her again]], and [[MyGreatestFailure damning his brother to life as a animate suit of armor in the process]]. He bottles this up for years and never once asks his brother if he blames him for this, all the while blaming himself. He even carved the date they burned down their home on the inside of his pocket watch so he'll be reminded whenever he checks the time. Note that this started when he was 11.

After years of bottling it up, Ed finally cries when his father not only offers his last bit of energy to bring back Al, but also apologize for not being there when his sons needed him.

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Gendo apparently has a bit of a penchant for, as he himself puts it, sequestering himself in his office for brooding and manly angst purposes. He also attempts to use this as an excuse to sequester himself in his office out of embarrassment after [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy getting drunk and making a fool of himself in public]], not that Fuyutsuki is remotely fooled.

* ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'', much like Batman, is defined by this, although the deaths of his wife and kids sometimes are overshadowed by the sheer brutality he brings upon mobsters, villains and lowlifes in general. Some characters show concern that he will become an example of HeWhoFightsMonsters, because he's that far gone into his campaign of revenge.
