** The sequel really ups Tali's woobie factor. [[spoiler: She finds her father dead at the same time she finds out he was doing illegal experiments on Geth, making him a war criminal against the quarians. And unless you do some fast talking during her trial, she potentially could be exiled forever from the one home she's ever known. Not to mention that, if you pursue her romance path, several conversation options imply that she's had feelings for Shepard since the events of ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' two years ago.]] With all this, is it any surprise that one of the Paragon interrupts is to give her a comforting hug and let her cry in your arms? (Very nice of BioWare to put this in, considering that is exactly what a person would want to do when confronted with a Woobie. Now you finally have the option to do it in-game.)

* AliceMadnessReturns makes the title character out to be one a lot more than the original AmericanMcgeesAlice did. To wit - when she was 8 years old, her house was burnt down, killing her entire family,[[spoiler:after witnessing her older sister being raped. She then spent a decade nearly comatose in an [[BedlamHouse insane asylum]] undergoing [[MedicalHorror 'treatments']] that would be considered both illegal and inhumane by today's standards. By the time the game starts she has been out of the asylum for a year and seems to have a pretty decent life, although she is still haunted by flashbacks and hallucinations, but then her quest for the truth reveals that her 'therapist' was the one responsible for the fire (and everything else that happened that night), and that he's been trying to erase her memories so she can't call the cops on his ass, and then sell her as a prostitute, as does with his other 'patients']]. And that's not even going into what happens to her in [[BattleInTheCentreOfTheMind Wonderland]]... And in the end, [[spoiler: she just goes fully insane and can no longer tell reality from her delusions]], in what is the biggest BittersweetEnding of forever.

** Robin in Sanctum of the Archmage is something of an IronWoobie, who has had to watch his/her entire family destroyed and his/her country taken over and oppressed, and who states more than once that if he/she lets go of his/her anger he/she won't have the strength to carry on. Also the player character, whose entire town [[DoomedHometown was destroyed by demons in the prologue]] and whose [[TheObiWan surrogate father figure]] was [[MentorOccupationalHazard killed by demons]] at the start of the opening chapter.

** And then there's The Boss, Big Boss' mentor. She is arguably the biggest {{Badass}} of the series but the lengths she goes through to protect the country that she loves is what makes her such a tragic figure. [[spoiler:While it at first appears that she betrayed the United States, she was actually set-up to by her superiors and would go down in history in America as the greatest traitor since Benedict Arnold and one of the worst war criminals in Russian history and she would have to be killed by her student And she did it with that knowledge.]]

** [[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]].

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]].
