Added DiffLines:

*Roarke from ''Literature/InDeath'' fits this rather well, Even if he's reformed now his past still occasionally gives his cop wife fits of apoplexy. He's still utterly unrepentant about the pick-pocketing though and tends to take her badge just to prove he still can.

%%* Mission Vao from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.

to:

%%* * Mission Vao from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''.''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is a carefree Twi'lek from the Undercity of the LayeredMetropolis that is Taris. She isn't 'hard' but she seems to have developed a lot of confidence through surviving in such a rough environment (having a Wookiee bodyguard helps too).


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', this characterizes Ekko and to a lesser extent Talon. Ekko grew up in the rough parts of Zaun and thrives as the leader of a little band of street kids. Talon grew up in Noxus, a city-state that refuses to help the 'weak' because only the strong should survive. He made it to adulthood by killing anyone who got in his way.

Frequently {{Anti-Hero}}es, and often {{Byronic Hero}}es. The degree to which the character is well-adjusted versus is harboring a lot of pain inside depends on the writer. See also WrongSideOfTheTracks, NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters. As children they are more likely to have been TheArtfulDodger rather than the StreetUrchin, but the Dodger is more of a trickster where the Street Rat is more of a cutthroat. May have been raised by TheFagin. Those who knew the Street Rat as a more vulnerable child may see them as a case of FromNobodyToNightmare in adulthood.

# Is currently a badass of significant caliber, often in a less-than-legal profession, with a [[WorldHalfEmpty cynical view towards life]] and a [[CombatPragmatist practical view]] [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty towards combat]]. (''Many'' are very fond of making their foe TalkToTheFist, oddly enough.)

* Mickey Milkovich on ''Series/{{Shameless}} (US)''. Still not out of his teens, he comes across as much older, is a pimp and assaults people whenever it suits him. Much of this stems from his harsh upbringing under his violent and erratic father and his family's general involvement in criminal activity, which is nonetheless not very lucrative, as they are fairly poor. That Mickey's father Terry is [[HeteronormativeCrusader brutally homophobic]] (probably due to [[PrisonRape experiences]] during his many stints in prison) and Mickey is a {{Gayngster}} also contributes to his must-kick-ass-to-survive mentality.

* ''Literature/Literature/EndersShadow'': Both Bean and his arch-enemy, Achilles, show elements of this, having spent their early years fighting to survive on the streets. Bean is more well-adjusted and doesn't seem to dwell on it much. Achilles turned out to be a complete sociopath who just ''can not'' let anyone who has ever seen him in a position of weakness live very long. Part of his obsession with Bean seems to stem from just how frequently Bean has ''put'' him in positions of weakness.
