* The ''[[SerialKiller Slasher]]'' {{Sourcebook}} for ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' features Freaks and Mutants as Slasher archetypes. The Freaks draw from sources like ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' -- individuals who've turned reclusive and atavistic due to their deformities. The Mutants, their natural progression, draw more from sources like ''Film/TheDescent'', as their mutations have caused them to become something other than human.

A character that induces both [[UncannyValley fear]] and [[TheWoobie pity]] in viewers because his deformities belie a perfectly normal, if not noble, personality. The pathos associated with The Grotesque is the implication that he could easily have become a well-adjusted member of society if not for the hideousness that he is powerless to remedy.

* Ephialtes from ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]''. Looks almost exactly like the Hunchback picture (top), showed the Spartan army the 'goats trail' that the Persians could use to flank them at the pass of Thermopylae, and asked to join the fight. King Leonidas's given reason for rejecting his aid is that his deformity makes him unable to form part of the Spartans' highly effective phalanx strategy ([[FridgeLogic which is plausible up until the point]] where [[HollywoodTactics everyone immediately breaks ranks to leap into single combat]]). After being denied the right to fight alongside the Spartans, he went to Xerxes and told him of the goat pass and switched sides - which, one supposes, means [[BeautyEqualsGoodness his outer deformity eventually reflected his inner feelings of rejection and jealousy]]. That certainly fits with the ideology of [[MasterRace the Spartans]], who [[TruthInTelevision did in real life]] kill any children that were born deformed.
* Ben Grimm, the Thing, from the ComicBook/FantasticFour (at least at first-- by now, he's the idol o' millions.).

* Creator/RondoHatton (April 22, 1894 – February 2, 1946) was an American actor who had a brief, but prolific career playing thuggish bit parts in many Hollywood B-movies (i.e. ''Film/TheBruteMan''). He was known for his brutish facial features which were the result of acromegaly, a disorder of the pituitary gland. His primary role was 'The Creeper', a killer who crushed his victim's spines in a bearhug. However, the Creeper was played as a deformed, dim-witted character that acted as a foil to some other villain's ambitions. Some person would befriend this pathetic, angry hulk of a man, and then use him as a weapon. So partial subversion here.

%%* Tyrion Lannister from ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' definitely fits the bill. He's a dwarf with a number of deformities, and his nickname is "the Imp." Tyrion was lucky to be born into a wealthy and influential family; although his father is a cold-hearted bastard, he recognizes his life would have been much harder if he was a peasant (if he even survived beyond childhood, that is). Still, he is hated by the "smallfolk" just for being ugly (even though he tried to be kind to them) and he is mistreated by everyone else except perhaps Jon Snow and his brother Jaime. You can't help feel sorry for him in one scene where he tells his henchman Bronn to find him a prostitute but to make sure to tell her beforehand what he is and how he looks, so she isn't repulsed by his appearance.
%%** I think the smallfolk hate Tyrion for more than just being a dwarf. Remember him ordering their homes burned in preparation for the battle with Stannis? Or the mentions of his mountain clansmen raping and killing people in the city?
%%** Even so, even the more reasonable and good protagonists have mentioned how they have heard he is he is supposedly the worst of the Lannisters, something that is so very untrue, and Tyrion has been told how he is blamed for the shortcomings of Joffrey among others (which he ascribes to this trope), and it is hard to escape the conclusion that his horrific appearance has nothing whatsoever to do with people's perceptions of him even if he has earned some ill will by his actions in serving his family.
%%** Later, it gets worse; he takes a sword slash across his face in the battle of King's Landing, losing a large chunk of his nose, twisting his lips, and very nearly costing him an eye. The combination of the trauma of his further disfigurement and the fact that he can't take anything to help with the pain because Cersei's trying to keep him out of commission leaves him severely depressed, to the point where [[spoiler: he barely even tries to defend himself when charged with Joffrey's murder.]]
