# Is happy and even proud of their DarkAndTroubledPast, believing that their trial by fire [[SocialDarwinist makes them superior]]. This may make them cocky, but they usually have the savvy and muscle to back up their arrogance.

* Doc Worth from ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' partly fits: he has the less-than-legal job and is proud of it and his dingy place. It is unknown what his chidhood or relationship with his family were like, but they were well-off enough to pay off hi med school expenses.

Added DiffLines:

* Hikage from ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'', who went from being an orphan from as far as she can remember, to being a gang member, to being an elite shinobi in Hebijo Academy. Though she is more indifferent about her past [[EmotionlessGirl as she is about everything else]] and she doesn't bring up her past that much.

Added DiffLines:

* Annah in ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' wavers between this and TheArtfulDodger, as a street-smart guttersnipe, but her FieryRedhead personality and tendency to shove a dagger in the guts of anyone who annoys her pushes her more to this trope.

* Revy from ''Manga/BlackLagoon''.
** Fabiola is a subversion. Fabiola grew up under similar circumstances to Revy but still clings to ''some'' degree of morality. Granted in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', that's not saying much...

* Mimeo of the WhateleyUniverse. His childhood consisted of being a numbers runner on the streets of New York City, right up until he was told to kill some people or be killed. He gained superpowers and managed to avoid the problem, by putting his father and two assassins in the hospital. He's a super villain who will do pretty much anything except kill people, and he has selfish reasons for holding back on that account.

* In WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender, Zuko (before his WorldOfCardboardSpeech) believes that his psychotic father somehow made him stronger, despite the fact that said father burned Zuko's face and banished him for speaking out of turn. Zuko says this in the first season: "I don't want luck, I don't need it. I've always had to fight and struggle. It's made me strong, it's made me who I am." It's made clear, though, that a lot of his pride at his past is him lying to himself, as he doesn't want to acknowledge that Ozai is evil.

* Many gladiators came to embrace the lifestyle and adoration of the crowd. If such a thing existed today, (or if they allowed such to compete in the NFL) it would be similar to a prison football team wanting life in prison because of all the fans they get by actually being the prison's football team.
