** [[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfileCovenantofthePlume Spin-off]]: Aside from the main character (who lost his father and his sister, while his mother went insane. Later he kills his best friend by accident), there are some, but probably the woobiest is Darius: Given up for adoption, came back to his 'real' family and was not accepted, and later either kills [[spoiler: himself and/or his only best friend]].

**Xion in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2''. She is at risk of elimination from the Organization if she fails to do her job, endures frequent personal insults from Saïx and is called a sham by Riku. To top it all off, she eventually learns she must disappear from existence to revive Sora. When she does eventually disappear, everyone loses their memories of her.
**Roxas in both ''358/2 Days'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. Much like Xion, he has no choice but to sacrifice himself to rejoin Sora. In ''358/2 Days'', he is forced to kill one of his best friends and abandon the other. In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', he lives in a simulated Twilight Town with false memories and friends who are actually just images made of data. Immediately after learning the truth, he is forced to give himself up to Sora.

** Arianna from [[ProfessorLaytonAndTheLastSpecter Last Specter]]. Let's see... her parents are dead, everyone hates her family, she's [[spoiler: dying]], everyone thinks she's a witch because of [[spoiler: her brother's attempts to protect her]], and she doesn't even get her inheritance because [[spoiler: Jakes changed her father's will]]. ItGetsBetter over the course of the game, but she still has to deal with [[spoiler: Loosha's death and Luke, her only real friend, leaving town forever]].

** Tiny Tina is more generally a StoicWoobie. Although she was tragically orphaned, she is perpetually cheerful/manic and even gets brutal revenge on her parents' killer. She does, however, get a genuine Woobie moment near the end of the ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dungeon Keep'' DLC. It's revealed that she's not really in denial of [[spoiler: Roland]]'s death. Rather, she was deeply affected, and the game is her way of giving him a story with a better ending.

* Saavedro, from ''VideoGam/MystIIIExile''. Seriously - two evil guys who are your friend's sons nearly destroy your home world and you follow them only to get knocked out, tied up, and tortured by said evil sons and stranded on a world you know nothing about for twenty years while thinking your family - no, your entire ''world'' - is dead? Serious Woobie fuel. At least this editor thinks so.

* It has been recently revealed that the [[spoiler:overmind]] from ''{{Starcraft}}'' [[spoiler:was created specifically so that it would have an uncontrollable urge to defeat and absorb the protoss so that the next generation xel'naga would come into existence. When it looked into the future and saw that the new xel'naga would absorb all of creation it realized it had been created so that it could not avoid this fate so it rebelled the only way it could, by creating kerrigan. Unfortunately it didn't last long enough to explain this to]] kerrigan so now SHE wants to kill everything as well. Mental slavery followed by dying believing your one chance at redemption had failed? Thats just not fair.

* The [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' is by several lengths the most tragic of the ''Fallout'' protagonists so far. They begin as a young parent in the pre-Great War United States and actually witness the end of the world and the destruction of everything and everyone they've ever known just in time to get into a Vault. [[spoiler:After they get cryogenically frozen, they're trapped in the pod and ForcedToWatch as a group of strange men murder their spouse and kidnap their son Shaun. They emerge from the Vault 200 years later and set out into a nightmarish post-apocalyptic Boston filled with murderous psychos, horribly mutated wildlife and the robotic minions of a cabal of evil scientists who have everyone terrified. When they finally catch up to their son, they find that sixty years passed and their son is now an extremely amoral old man who is the ''head of said cabal of evil scientists'', who casually writes off the death of their one parent as "collateral damage" and barely knows or cares about the surviving parent, and who is quickly dying of cancer. The Sole Survivor is left to either destroy their son's life work by siding with one of the factions aligned against him, or side ''with'' their son's faction and leave post-apocalyptic Massachusetts in the hands of some very shady characters.]]

* ''{{Warcraft}}'''s [[BlackMagicianGirl Jaina Proudmoore]] deserves a mention here. From her first appearance in ''{{Warcraft}} 3'' her life has been a litany of tragic events, starting with the corruption of her former lover Arthas into evil, then the destruction of her home, and then finally, after learning that the Horde had reformed from its former monstrous incarnation, being forced to fight against her own warmongering father to preserve peace. And her other old friend, Prince Kael'thas, then turns up as leader of the Blood Elves. Despite her heroism at the Battle of Mount Hyjal, helping to save the world, the Alliance continues to treat her as a junior partner and increasingly ignores her pleas for peace and diplomacy with the Horde. As a result, the detente she had fought for is in shambles, and she can only watch as hotheads on both sides reignite a pointless, genocidal war.

*** Watch out though, cause come ''WorldOfWarcraft Cataclysm'', she's [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jumped down the slippery slope]] through the MoralEventHorizon for little to no reason other than [[HeWhoFightsMonsters the fact that she's Undead]]. It doesn't take much to see that, as even the well hated warmonger Garrosh Hellscream states the obvious that she is [[NotSoDifferent No Different]] from [[BigBad the Lich King]].
