* MelanieLynskey is cute as a bug's ear, but tends to play characters that are, to say the least, quirky.

* John Lennon was a drug addict, had a quick and fiery temper, and generally could be a downright JerkAss a lot of the time; but being a Beatle, he had no shortage of screaming fans, and Paul Mc Cartney has been quoted as saying of those who actually KNEW John, "[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Everyone]] was in love with John; [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold John was lovable]], John was a very lovable guy."
* Ian Curtis of JoyDivision fame.
* Peter Steele of TypeONegative fame.
* Based on his Draw My Life video, ShaneDawson is this a big way

%%* Roger Klotz in ''{{Doug}}''. He and Doug even get along once in a while, to show that he's not just a horrible jerk. He's also somewhat of a [[TheWoobie woobie]]. Sometimes, his mom doesn't spend a lot of time with him, and his dad lives in the next town over (his parents are divorced), AND lives in a trailer park (in the Nickelodeon version). Kinda makes you wonder why he started bullying in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* In the 'Cinderella' side story from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Tarvek very nearly quotes this trope when he and Gil are [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081121#.VvVu4OKLTIU arguing over who should play the prince]].
--> '''Gil:''' ''I'm'' the prince! I'm all tortured and driven by love!\\
'''Tarvek:''' ''Feh. I'm'' the misunderstood one with the mysterious agenda. ''Muy sexy''.

%% * Shawn Hunter in ''BoyMeetsWorld''. The rampart trailer park trash jokes started as innocent and one dimensional character traits. Then, for a good while from season two onward, it seemed like every other episode was a Shawn pity-party fest. And he got girls to boot.

%% * Ricky from ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'', who has one of the biggest {{Freudian Excuse}}s ever seen. %%%% TROPERS and READERS will wonder what the excuse is.%%%%
%%* Mark and David from ''{{Roseanne}}''.
%% EXAMPLE INDENTATION!! * Dean from WizardsOfWaverlyPlace is painted with this trope in mind, but Alex Russo pulls it off much better. Alex manages this without being a BrokenBird, as a part of her CoolLoser goal and charm.

* Marceline from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''well not THAT cute, though her regular vampire form is adorable compared to her normal shapeshifting. She has a LOT of issues. It would take us all day to go through them all.

** This also goes to Flame Princess, being destruction incarnate. and was locked up in a cell for the first 14 years of her life.
** Princess Bubblegum also applies somewhat as well. Looking normally pretty and graceful, she had the pain of ruling a entire kingdom for centuries, and eventually lost it to a JerkAss.


Added DiffLines:

* Many ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' characters fit into this. Starting with Amethyst, who looks stocky and adorable. But really she's very insecure, lonely, and worried what others will think of her.
**Steven himself mostly acts adorable, but hides insecurity and the loss of his mother.
** Definently Lapis Lazuli, adorable as a angel, but is a BrokenBird big time.

* Minako Aino from ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is a girl example of Cute, but Troubled: her good looks are immediately apparent, but the results of her DarkAndTroubledPast are [[StepfordSmiler well hidden behind a happy and carefree facade]].
