** Speaking of the Wonderbolts, Dashie gets her time in the Woobie spotlight once more in the episode ''Newbie Dash'' by being hazed and given an EmbarrassingNickname by the Wonderbolts who unknowingly call her Rainbow Crash the exact same name her flight school bullies called her and is probably the reason why she dropped out. We even get to see everypony but Fluttershy (even the supposedly responsible adult, although that could be Dash remembering things wrong) laughing at Rainbow crashing into a cloud then landing in a trash can, in the exact same pose in the present day. This was apparently meant to humble Rainbow and make her realize being a Wonderbolt isn't always sugar and rainbows, though some think the Wonderbolts went [[KickTheDog too]] [[WhatTheHellHero far]] and utterly broke her. We even get to see Dashie tear up several times and make cringe-worthy impressions of her friends to try and change her nickname. Although this could all be due to Rainbow's own pride not allowing her to tell the Wonderbolts just how much that nickname hurt her. Also as predicted by many fans, Rainbow Dash does indeed have PTSD from her days at Flight School/Flight Camp.

* Rarity is kinda a woobie as well when you think about it. She puts so much effort on her work in the boutique and gets little appreciation most of the time. Suited For Success, and Sweet Elite definitely proved it. While she may seem prissy and a bit prim, she has the element of generosity for a reason. Not only that but despite her [[LargeHam overdramatic]] breakdowns and difficult to understand at times, it's fairly easy to relate to many people whom work hard.
** Rarity's woobie status is cranked up in the Nightmare arc of the [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comics]]. [[spoiler: She has bad self-esteem issues, and is afraid that her friends will abandon and forget about her once they find somepony kinder or more talented than her. The Nightmare Forces end up taking advantage of these fears in order to [[DemonicPossession take over Rarity's body]] and make her the new Nightmare Moon. Needless to say, the real Rarity doesn't enjoy being the arc's main villain.]]
---> '''Rarity''': [[spoiler:[[BreakTheCutie Please, no! I don't want to go back! It was so cold and lonely - and I wasn't helping anypony! I was hurting them. Help!]]]]
** Rarity gets woobiefied again in ''Rarity Takes Manehatten'' being [[InnocentlyInsensitive insensitive]] of her friends feelings, and yet being extremely generous to everypony. Her generosity ends up almost being her downfall in Manehatten when resident AlphaBitch, Suri Polomare copies her design and tells her she didn't win. After realizing what she put her friends through, causing them to miss the play they all wanted to see (yes even Rainbow Dash) it becomes too much for her to bear and she runs to the street in tears only to be confronted by her friends who say that it doesn't matter that she didn't win. Then it's revealed by Coco Pomell that she ''did'' win. Feeling better, Rarity takes her friends to a private showing of the play they wanted to see.
** For whom the Sweetie Belle toils doesn't just Woobify Sweetie Belle but Rarity as well. If Sweetie hadn't have fixed her dress, Rarity would have gone into seclusion bawling her eyes out at the loss of her job. What's worse is that she worked hard to keep the kids at her sister's party receiving no thanks from anypony and unwittingly caused her sister to feel inadequate.
* [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero "Lesson Zero"]] implies that Twilight Sparkle was regularly teased in school as a filly, invoking this interpretation for some fans.
** Even outside fan interpretation, she has a high order case of SuperOCD, and (at least once [[SanitySlippage literally]]) drives herself crazy trying to make everything perfect and appease her self dictated high standards, terrified of losing the approval of her peers and friends, especially Princess Celestia.
** From her reputation as a bookworm and model student, her asocial behavior early in the series, her casual comments to Spike in the first episode that show she doesn't see any value in making friends, and her intense fear of failure in "Lesson Zero", it isn't hard to infer that before she came to Ponyville, Twilight didn't have ''any'' friends outside of Celestia, and her dedication to being a good student could be either the cause or effect of that. Either way, in "Lesson Zero" she's clearly freaking out at losing the friends she's come to value and being forced to give up her new and improved lifestyle to go back to being that asocial bookworm, this time knowing exactly how lonely and isolated she'll be now that she's had friends and has lost them because of her "slip-ups". She also has a fear of failure if Lesson Zero and The Crystal Empire are any indication.
** Her InferioritySuperiorityComplex, combined with her NoSocialSkills, also makes her even more of this. She begs her friends not to hate her, puts herself through hell and back just to fit in and secretly fears that she isn't worth the attention of her loved ones, especially Princess Celestia. That her SuperOCD isn't just funny finnickyness but portrayed as a legitimate mental illness does ''not'' help things, as it seems to be in part responsible for this line of thinking. Watching episodes like Winter Wrap Up with her low sense of self-worth makes them HarsherInHindsight, and a lot of her {{Determinator}} status [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation can be seen as]] a desperate desire to [[IJustWantToBeLoved prove she's worth the affection she doesn't think she deserves that she gets from those she loves.]]
** The season 2 finale also turns her into this. Although she was acting grouchy about Princess Cadance's unusually bad attitude, her friends, brother, and Princess Celestia all abandon her in anger when she speaks up and calls Cadance evil. She feels ''horrible'' about what she'd done, knowing that she probably wouldn't be able to redeem herself in their eyes...[[spoiler: and even worse, it turns out that she was ''right'' to be suspicious, since "Cadance" reveals herself to be an evil impostor and imprisons Twilight in the Canterlot Caves.]]
** Season 4 plays with this a little, her worrying about her princess duties keeping her away from her friends, as well as worrying about Celestia dying (there's that scene in Princess Twilight Sparkle to consider), even though she didn't die, she still was injured before Twilight's eyes. Twilight is most certainly an AllLovingHero after CharacterDevelopment in Seasons 1 and 2, but still retains woobieish qualities in later seasons.

Even if you dislike her, it's hard to avoid becoming sad over Starlight running away crying when she realizes Twilight's been following her and seemingly judging her choices.

** And again, when she returns in ''No Second Prances'' Trixie has genuinely reformed and makes a friend in Starlight Glimmer which is revealed to be her first friend. That's right, the reason Trixie was so arrogant and conceited in her first two appearances wasn't just because of Boast Busters, but because nobody would be her friend. It's pretty sad when Trixie loses her assistant and chooses to do a dangerous stunt to get some adoration. [[FridgeHorror Imagine]] what would happen if Starlight didn't step in to help with the manticore stunt and Trixie ended up being devoured by a [[MixAndMatchCritters manticore]]...

** Unsurprisingly, it is also suggested that she feels lonely.

** Various scenes seen from Fluttershy's point of view show that her stress distorts innocent or even positive reactions towards her into a huge crowd cruelly mocking her. She even seems to feel this way about her friends. The musical number in "Bats!" portrays a disagreement between her and the remane-ing five+Spike. It's the only disagreement we see from Fluttershy's point of view and we perceive Spike and the remane-ing five act intimidating towards her, circling around her menacingly and angrily looking down their noses at her at the end as she recoils in fear. When it's not her point of view, they normally speak to her as though she was on the verge of jumping off a building (disregarding Rainbow Dash's impatience and Pinkie's InnocentlyInsensitive moments).
