* ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' pits you against many psychopaths as the game progresses. Most of them are just normal people who snapped and went crazy when the zombies arrived, and the player must kill them to protect other survivors. One of them is a crazed Vietnam veteran carrying a machete, who wanders around in a hardware store. Only after fighting and nearly killing him does he reveal that he has been suffering from flashbacks to Vietnam the entire time. While this was obvious to most players, what he revealed next came as a shock: [[spoiler: He had been out on a shopping trip with his young granddaughter when the zombies arrived, and he watched as she was torn apart and eaten by zombies. He tells you this as he hands you his wallet with a bloodstained photo of his family. After his granddaughter died, his vision "flashed white" and he starting suffering from flashbacks. He tells you this after you, the player, have just ensured his death.]]
** Another odd, sad case is Steven Chapman - while best remembered for either being horrifying, or a [[ActuallyPrettyFunny hilarious]] FountainOfMemes, his end scene opens rather somberly - stumbling to a checkout counter, Steve falls, and cradles the cash register. Far from being the [[ScreamingWarrior screeching]] LargeHam who doesn't want vandals in [[SuddenlyShouting HIS]] [[MemeticMutation STOOOOOOOOOOORRRRREEEE]]- [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he's gone deathly quiet]], [[InelegantBlubbering softly sobbing]], [[TakingUpTheMantle wondering who will run his store now]].
--> My store... My... ''store!'' (softly crying) Who will run my store when I'm gone? My store... My food... My sales... My...... Customers... ([[GoOutWithASmile A little smile curls on his lips]]) [[NonSequiturThud Have a nice day...]] (Falls over...) [[spoiler: [[JumpScare CLEAN-UP!]] [[MoodWhiplash REGISTER 6!]]]]

Added DiffLines:

** Adam the Clown is simultaneously tragic and horrifying, having gone insane after witnessing his audience (which would've included children) getting eaten by zombies, and convinced that running the Space Rider roller coaster at breakneck speed will keep the zombies at bay to the point that he's willing to kill Frank over it.
