* A few of Niles's supports in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' imply he was subject to this before becoming Leo's retainer. It's downplayed, though, as it's shown his abandonment issues, bitterness at growing up in poverty and hatred of the rich that make up the bulk of his issues.

** Gamora (seen in ''Warlock and the Infinity Watch'', among others, but now best known for ''ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'') was raised and trained by death-worshipper ComicBook/{{Thanos}} of Titan after she was orphaned. When she runs away while they're on a trip, she's beaten and raped by a group of thugs, which provides the impetus for Thanos to rebuild her stronger and more powerful than she was before.
*** Jim Starlin is a very good writer, but he has applied this trope to virtually all of the female characters he's written, including Gamora. Even decades after they have been established. One theory is he was going through his own CerebusSyndrome.
