* The page image is of Zimmy from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''.''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is a HumanoidAbomination of some sort who has what appears to be a mix of schizophrenia/hallucinations and RealityWarper powers. Her eyes are constantly covered by black muck and her teeth are razor sharp, giving her a very discomforting appearance. She also has a rather unpleasant personality. She can't control her powers, though, and even in her lucid, sane moments she has a constant "static buzzing" noise in her head that drives her up the wall. She's also abrasive toward most people in an attempt to keep them away from her for their own safety. Her only relief comes from her best friend Gamma, whose presence dampens Zimmy's powers (while she's awake, anyway), or in natural rain storms, which washes away the muck in her eyes and grants her a totally clear head. Zimmy ''really likes'' rain.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' Thanksgiving episode "Kung Pao Turkey" when Stan is watching football it's shown that Creator/{{FOX}} created a living turducken that's a genetic mashup of a chicken, turkey, and duck with the announcer saying verbatim that its every waking moment is agony.

* The Handymen in ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' were originally injured or terminally ill Columbian citizens who were grafted into huge, primitive cyborg bodies in an attempt to save their lives. However, their new bodies render them in constant, agonising pain and keep them from sleeping, and most of their "taunts" in battle are either loud laments about their situation or begging Booker to simply leave them alone.

At the end he emotes this trope with a mere look since after leaving the building he stops, morphs back from the feral creature of nightmares to the human face he once was, and shows nothing but sadness and remorse for what he has become.

* The zombies from ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' are humans who have been turned into PeoplePuppets and mutated by the parasitoid headcrabs attached to their heads. In the second game they can be heard screaming for help as they attack you (although it's implied this may be a subversion - that the headcrab is mindlessly parroting the last words its host made).
* Many ''Franchise/SilentHill'' monsters can be interpreted this way, particularly the God in SilentHill3. Prematurely born, cast in a grotesque image of the burned girl Alessa, all it does is writhe in agony and attempt to blindly flail at the player as though it desires to be put out of its misery.

* ComicBook/{{Galactus}} is often presented this way. Despite being a PlanetEater, he has no desire to actually eat planets and regrets his actions, as he WasOnceAMan [[TimeAbyss in the universe that existed before the current one]] and only does so to survive.

* ComicBook/{{Galactus}} is often presented this way. Despite being a PlanetEater, he has no desire to actually eat planets and regrets his actions, as he WasOnceAMan [[TimeAbyss in the universe that existed before the current one]] and only does so to survive. And if this still sounds unsympathetic and selfish, it has been shown several times that doing away with Galactus (who is something of a universal constant, almost on par with the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of concepts such as Time and Space) instead of letting him be is by far the worst of the two options.



* Grendel from the 2007 film adaptation of ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'' is driven to his rampage not only by his hunger, but also by an apparent case of extreme misophonia triggered by the noise of revelry at Hrothgar's mead hall.

His numerous deformities also appear to leave him in almost constant pain.



** Later editions changed the unit's look and fluff so that the poor SOB isn't the pilot of the Talos... [[http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Talos_Pain_Engine they ARE the Talos]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has Krieg, once a heroic individual turned into a Psycho through brutal experimentation that destroyed his sanity. Whatever remnants of his former self is left as a simple voice in his head who attempt to steer himself towards "the deserving" and away from the innocent, even swearing to commit suicide if he ever sheds innocent blood. Similarly, his primary motivation for being a Vault Hunter is because he's in love with Maya and sees her as the one who can make him sane one day.
