** Yin - Started out being nearly killed by [[BigBad Eradicus]]' Woo Foo Aura Drain at the beginning of the story, [[DiabolusExMachina she falls into a coma alongside with Yang after getting blown away by the explosive shockwave]] [[PyrrhicVictory that destroys their hometown completely, following the Night Master's defeat]]. She starts coming to terms with the fact that their [[DisappearedDad biological father]], [[OldMaster Master]] [[GrumpyBear Yo]], [[FakingTheDead committed pseudocide]] [[MoralEventHorizon so he can go on vacation]] [[ParentalAbandonment to escape from his responsibilities as a father]] [[DisproportionateRetribution out of frustration for his children's week-long losing streak against]] Eradicus' [[QuirkyMinibossSquad minions]] [[ContinuityNod early in the last episodes of Season Two]]. Yin gets kidnapped by a criminal gang at a hotel reception at the near end of chapter six along with foster sister Suzie, kicking off the initial plot arc [[spoiler:only to turn out alive and well and then rescued by BigBrother Yang in chapter fourteen, thanks to a BigDamnHeroes moment]].

* Veronika of ''FanFic/SolitaryPinion'' is an interesting case in that while she does arguably count as this trope, the doctors [[EntertaininglyWrong incorrectly yet justifiably]] consider her the biggest Woobie they have ever met.
** Everything the doctors know about her points to her [[AbuseMistake having suffered severe abuse]] throughout her childhood. Her bones and flesh appear fresh, which would indicate her having been repeatedly tortured and much of her body tissue thus been replaced via healing magic - for the sole sake of going through the same torture again. Not only that, but her apparent limited talking skills, lack of a cutie mark, and her [[TheJoyOfFirstFlight downright marvel]] at her own supposedly natural [[HowDoIShotWeb ability to fly]] would imply developmental abnormalities. This inspires major worry and outright disgust in the doctors about who could've possibly done such things to a little filly.
** The truth of the matter, of course, is that she was born a [[WasOnceAMan different kind of creature]] from her [[BalefulPolymorph current]] [[{{Animorphism}} form]]. Her limited capabilities of walking and talking are the result of possessing a completely different physiology [[DamnYouMuscleMemory than what she has taken 14 years to get used to]]. As for the flying thing, her original species can't fly and based [[FlyingTropes much of their culture]] on [[CallOfTheWildBlueYonder their obsession and envy towards all flying creatures]].

*While all three of Kiryuuin sisters from ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'' are woobies in their own right, the youngest sister, [[spoiler: Ryuuko]], is an even bigger woobie than either of the former two due to being treated like a dirty secret, locked away in a cellar, made to live in a cage, and had suffered ''very'' severe neglect and abuse at the hands of their mother. What makes her situation worse is that some people have treated their children like that with said children not recovering very well from that, either.

* If you thought [[ShrinkingViolet Shifty]] [[PreciousPuppy Dingo]] was a sympathetic character in [[WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill The Adventures Of Blinky Bill]] the fanfic [[http://m.fanfiction.net/s/7782580/1/ Scars Are Forever]] takes this trope and cranks it UpToEleven. In the first chapter, he is verbally abused by Blinky to the point where he breaks down in tears and all he wanted to do is give Blinky a cookie to cheer him up. In the 3rd chapter, [[spoiler: he is kidnapped and tortured by Jeromy, a villain who [[ColdBloodedTorture burns him with matches, cuts his tail off and uses his severed tail to strangle him.]] He spends the entire 4th chapter in a coma because of this]] and in the 5th chapter [[spoiler: He finally wakes up and Nutsy and Danny Dingo tell him they killed the villain. Shifty then [[WhatTheHellHero chews them out for fear they will be arrested and locked up]], cries himself to sleep and [[HeroicBSOD becomes mute for TWO WHOLE WEEKS only communicating with heartwrenching whimpers.]]]] Oh yeah and in the final chapter, [[spoiler: Danny Dingo commits suicide and [[TearJerker Shifty cries hysterically at his grave]]]] At least Nutsy is there to comfort the poor little dingo, and Blinky eventually apologises.
** Splodge also gets the BreakTheCutie treatment, considering the fact he has to be babysat FOR A MONTH by his psychopath cousin who plays Russian roulette with him. Jeromy is so terrifying to poor Splodge that he manages to reduce Splodge to tears and vomiting.
** Danny Dingo easily qualifies as a JerkassWoobie in the fic after he [[spoiler: gets infected with AIDS/HIV]] In the final chapter, his tragic past is revealed, he [[spoiler: had an abusive father who locked him in a closet and once threw him off a cliff just cause Danny was born with black fur. Furtermore, Ma dingo bartered him off in exchange for sex only to buy him back after his father was institutionalized.]] No wonder Danny because such a scheming jerk.

* This is a common AlternativeCharacterInterpretation of Britney from ''MyImmortal''. She's cast as a DesignatedVillain for simply [[FanHater not sharing the protagonists' tastes in fashion and music]]. Until the very end of the story, she does absolutely nothing else to warrant the abuse and bullying which she constantly receives from the "heroes". Instead, the mere fact that she exists is considered an offense all by itself. And her behavior at the end can easily be interpreted as a response to the abuse leveled at her for the whole story.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' fans seem to love putting young Obi-Wan Kenobi in this position. A whole page could be made out of all the fics where he's beaten,kidnapped, becomes a slave, abused by hurtful masters prior to becoming Qui-Gon's padawan, made sick, ect. Much of the material is inspired by the ''Jedi Apprentice'' book series.

* Heather is portrayed as one in many ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' fics, either what made her into such a cruel girl or after she got back from the show and is ridiculed by many.
* Another ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' example: In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, you can't help but feel sorry for Carl. The man got [[spoiler: kidnapped by the BigBad Radcliffe himself, put under constant mind control, is used as target practice for Courtney's training and apparently because of this, [[CaptainObvious his health is declining rapidly.]]]]

* Jack in ''Cave Story Versus I.M. Meen''. Have you ever tried being trapped inside a completely insane poor man's version of a yuri fanfic involving both your girlfriend and her best friend, being forced to work at a restaurant called Diarrhea Bell, having to watch the two girls scissor and 2-Girls-1-Cup each other right in front of your eyes, being mercilessly [[TickleTorture tickle-tortured right on your bare soles]] ''[[AndIMustScream for ten straight minutes]]'' and thrown in jail for something you didn't do, and then ''still'' being terribly abused even after your escape? It's not much fun.
