* Cid in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is abusive to his housemate and personal slave Shera, but in his case he's deeply depressed about having his dreams crushed. He knows Shinra was responsible for doing it and even cites financial reasons, but blames Shera for it anyway.

* Cid in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is not ''exactly'' a bad person but he ''is'' verbally abusive to his housemate and personal slave Shera, but in his case he's deeply depressed about having his dreams crushed. He knows Shinra was responsible for doing it and even cites financial reasons, but blames Shera for it anyway.anyway [[spoiler: since she was in danger and Cid forfeited his dreams so she wouldn't die]]. [[spoiler: When it turns out Shera ''did'' have a very good point that ''wasn't'' related to Shinra, Cid goes "MyGodWhatHaveIDone" mode and apologizes to her for what he put her through.]]



** Rosa was abused by Kinzo, tormented by her brothers and sister (which Rudolf acknowledges at some point), and is a single mother where the father of her daughter Maria [[spoiler:left her without marrying her and while she was pregnant]]. All in all, her life's a train wreck. Is it any wonder that she winds up taking so much of it out on Maria, as much as poor Maria doesn't deserve it?
** As for Kinzo, he's manipulated as the heir to the Ushiromiya family, [[DeathSeeker seeks his own death]], is sent off to WorldWarTwo, and [[spoiler:meets his love, Beatrice Castiglioni, only to have her and later her daughter both die]]. He winds up half-insane, is abusive to most of his children (specially to Eva, by denying her the right to be the heir [[HeirClubForMen purely for her gender]] despite being more talented in business than her eldest brother Krauss) [[spoiler:and has a child with his illegitimate daughter, Beatrice Ushiromiya, through implied rape]].

* Kyouichi Saionji from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', in spades. He's a wannabe BastardBoyfriend who treats Anthy like absolute shit, scoffs at Wakaba's love letter and is pretty much the ButtMonkey of the Student Council -- and also a dude [[UsedToBeASweetKid who wasn't THAT bad as a pre-teen]], but now has intense self-loathing and issues towards his best friend Touga, who exploits it like whoa for his own purposes.

Added DiffLines:

* Done heartbreakingly well in ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath''. Ganth, the main characters' father was '''incredibly''' abusive, throwing out his 7-year-old daughter into the Haunted Lands when he found out she was magical. In the first few books, he seems one-dimensionally evil. Several books in, you learn that Ganth was abused by his own father, and that his hatred and fear of magic stems from the fact that his brother used magic to rape him when they were young. All of the women in his family--including his grandma and sister who he loved--were killed by assassins. He lead his people to war and suffered a shocking defeat. He became a exile and ended up living in the Haunted Lands. The woman who he truly believed was his OneTrueLove--his children's mother--became his consort, but then she left him without any explanation. His daughter turned out to magic, just like the rapist brother. Ganth was beaten and broken again and again by his TraumaCongaLine life, and by the time his children were born--near the end of his life--he taught them "Destruction begins with love." because that's really what he believed. Trishien lampshades this in ''The Sea of Time'':
-->'''Trishien''': You always did hide behind your anger, Ganth. When you couldn't have what you wanted, you tried to tear down everything, at whatever cost to anyone else. You were hurt, by your brother, by your father, by life, so you hurt others.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E4OneBadApple One Bad Apple]]" gives us this trope when the Cutie Mark Crusaders learn that Babs Seed, who had been fiercely bullying them for days now, had only come to Ponyville to get away from the heartache and bullying ''she'' had been experiencing back home. The Crusaders realize that this is what prompted her to join with the local {{Alpha Bitch}}es rather than stand up to them.

-> '''Blackadder:''' Nothing, you are last in [[TheChainOfHarm God's great chain]], Baldrick. Unless, of course, there's an earwig around here that you'd like to victimize.
