** The most extreme example yet is in "The Cutie Map": An entire TownWithADarkSecret spends most of the time smiling in a way that Pinkie Pie, being a smile expert, doesn't trust for a minute. They actually are genuinely friendly and even happy, in a way, but it's in no way worth it for what they've had to give up, nor is their happiness actually natural.

* Amethyst of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' definitely seems to be one of these with [[TheReveal the reveal]] that [[spoiler: she was the product of a horrible plan by the homeworld gems to make an army of bad gems]]. She makes it very clear in ''On The Run'' that she hates herself and believes she's nothing but a mistake because of her origins--something she's been hiding for ''thousands'' of years.

The Ice King from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is shown to be extremely depressed in several episodes, yet is also a giggling ManChild quite a bit of the time.time. This gets more focus as his genuinely tragic backstory is revealed, as is the fact that his crown is basically an ArtifactOfDoom that has driven him insane and partially wiped his mind... and yet some piece of the good man he once was is still trapped inside the Ice King and has not quite been destroyed by the crown's influence.
** Main character Finn is another one. He openly acknowledges that he represses many of his negative feelings and traumas, (he calls this process "putting it in the vault") and tries to keep from showing his various disappointments and inner sadness to others.
