* This trope is the reason Killia from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 5}}'' occasionally monologues with a frozen Lieze flower every so often; it's a keepsake from his days with his adoptive sister, Liezerota, who was accidentally murdered by Void Dark ([[TakingTheBullet she got between them in an attempt to end the fight]]), and Killia deeply holds himself responsible for the event.

* SoulSeries: Siegfried Schtauffen back in the day when he [[spoiler: killed his father]], he snapped, and tried to blame somebody else, then, when he comes in contact with [[EvilWeapon Soul Edge]], [[DealWithTheDevil he accepts to gather souls so he can revive his father]], however, this doesn't work, so he ends up atoning for his past deeds as [[BigBad Nightmare]]. You can see in his quotes that he has a [[TheAtoner lot of regret]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone and is very uncomfortable with what he did]]. On the other hand, he's [[BadAss man]] enough to keep on [[TheHero fighting for the best of the world and to atone for his sins.]] [[TimeSkip Soulcalibur V]] shows that he's [[EarnYourHappyEnding forgiven.]]

Compare ManlyTears, which a Mangster occasionally engages in, but only in private. Often accompanied by BadDreams or DrowningMySorrows. Very often the fuel which powers a RoaringRampageOfRevenge. Mangst is generally the cause of a MookHorrorShow. Often combined with BestServedCold -- though just as often its combined with [[UnstoppableRage Best Served Steaming Hot With Lots Of Screaming]].

* Harold Finch (of PersonOfInterest) had to [[FakingTheDead fake his own death]] because the government is after him to kill him and anyone connected to him because of the wildly powerful computer system he built for them, [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies letting his fiancee believe him dead so she will be safe]] and can occasionally be seen gazing at a photo of her or very occasionally watching her from a distance.

* 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.

** Other heroes tend to either roll their eyes at this or take it way too seriously. The former think his coping mechanism is whacked and he must be dangerously close to insanity because of it, while the latter have gone through ''much'' worse (like the MartianManhunter, whose planet was decimated and family killed, and unlike Franchise/{{Superman}}, actually ''remembers'' them) yet still think that Batman's experience was so horrible that it excuses JerkAss behavior that wouldn't be tolerated from anyone else.
