* Gehrman from ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', once the first Hunter of Yharnam, a selfless person who can withstand a [[CosmicHorrorStory cosmic scale of horror]], reducing to a crippled old man trapped in a dream. He wished to be freed from the nightmare and begged his friends to put him out of his misery, but they couldn't. By the time when you halted the source of nightmare, he insisted to offer you a MercyKill instead of begging you to kill him, [[SelflessWish wishing you to be freed]].

* [[BreakTheBadass After a rather brutal series of events]] (including being badly poisoned poisoned, nearly suffocated and falling from not one, but several cliffs), [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Korra]] is left confined to a wheelchair for an unknown amount at least two years. And as a bonus, that series of time.events was designed to make her feel useless in her role as the [[TheChosenOne Avatar]] (and kill the Avatar spirit forever), with her allies unintentionally adding to that by doing her job while she recovers. She prides herself on her strength and her role so this haunts her. Even when she gets out of the chair, a combination of trace poison in her system and her own doubts and fears leaves her a shadow of her former self for quite a while.

An easy way to mark someone as TheWoobie is to put them in a wheelchair. Crutches or other similarly visible impediments are common, too, but wheelchairs are the most common. Often their Woobie status is tied to how they ended up in the thing in the first place.
