* Creator/DomhnallGleeson has had a successful career thus far playing a variety of woobies, including jerkass ones (''Film/{{Frank}}'') baddass ones (''Film/{{HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows}}'') and heartrendingly cute ones (''Film/{{Dredd}}''). The pattern makes his casting as General Hux feel like the odd one out.

* Lars of LarsAndTheRealGirl is this trope personified. Mother died giving birth to him, father pretty much blamed him for it and became emotionally distant, older brother (probably the only stable person in his life) skipped town for several years and left him behind. He's so traumatized from his past that he feels ''physical pain'' when touched by others. He cannot have a normal relationship with the opposite sex (despite a co-worker practically throwing herself at him) and is so self conscious that the only one he can bring himself to connect with is a rubber sex toy. Yet, despite all that, he's still the sweetest, most innocuous guy ever.

* RequiemForADream. Seriously, try to watch the final scene without wanting to give every character a big squishy hug.

* It's practically a job requirement in ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''. ** Edward Norton as Dr Bruce Banner in 2008 ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. Continued with Mark Ruffalo in ''Film/TheAvengers''. He's been at the mercy of the government, SHIELD, and Loki. The poor guy never catches a break. ** Steve Rogers at the beginning of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. He's desperate to help in the war effort, but his terrible health blocks him from entering the military. ** Loki from ''Film/Thor''. Sure, he's the villain and we're supposed to be rooting against him, but the fact that he constantly looks like he's about to cry and has spent his whole life trying to get out of the shadow of his big ([[spoiler:adoptive]]) brother and please his father doesn't help things. ** [[spoiler:[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier The Winter Soldier]] AKA Bucky [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainfried]] Barnes. He was [[NeverFoundTheBody thought]] dead after he fell from a Hydra train. He survived and was captured by Hydra, who brainwashed him and programmed him to be an assassin. For the next 70 years he was either [[HumanPopsicle in cold storage]] or defrosted to kill Hydra's enemies. He was so thoroughly brainfried that it takes his old friend saying his name to send him into a BSOD. When he returns to base and begins to breakdown, [[BullyingADragon he is slapped]] and told to undergo a mindwipe: which he doesn't fight despite being able to destroy dozens of SHIELD agents at once. When he fights Steve again, he's completely falling apart.]]

** Sandman from ''Film/SpiderMan3''. He just wants to cure his daughter from some mysterious illness but since he doesn't has the money for medical care, he was in desperation forced to do crime in order to get them. In one of his robberings, he [[spoiler:accidentally killed Uncle Ben]], a mistake that would hunt him with much remorse and guilt. When he got his super powers, he decided to use them in order to get the money, but not before visting his daughter, giving her the post cards he had written for her but wasn't allowed to send. After the final battle with Spider-Man, in which both [[spoiler:Harry and Eddie]] died, he's obviously in deep regret of the situation he played part off that went out of hand and the last scene has him asking Spider-Man for forgiveness for the pain he had caused him.
