* Saria from ''Ocarina of Time'' tends to get the woobie treatment quite handily from the fandom, what with being an UnluckyChildhoodFriend who "really liked" Link but [[NeverGrewUp couldn't grow up along with him]] due to being a Kokiri, as well as having to spend the seven years that Link spent in the Sacred Realm having to deal with a {{Jerkass}} who hated his guts and blamed him for what happened to the Great Deku Tree. And that's not even mentioning the fan speculation that [[spoiler:she, along with the other five Sages, died in the process of trying to deal with the evil that had taken hold of the temples]].

* ''PhantasyStar Universe'' has a class of enemies in the free mission Bladed Legacy. They are young beast women who sort of act like Magical Girls. They are known as 'Wikko' and they sound very cute. It's too bad that you have to fight them and kill them.

* Nina from ''BreathOfFire Dragon Quarter''. Whereas Nina is usually a princess in the Breath of Fire games, in this one she is a genetically altered orphan, designed to act as an air filtration unit (The poisoned air, of course, remains in her body), who had her tongue cut out. [[CrapsackWorld Dragon Quarter is not a happy game.]]

* If you look at the quantrilogy of games in the ''SaintsRow'' series Shaundi turns out to be this. Her story is that she had a bad spring break where it's implied she was made a ho for a pimp, who later turns up. She got into drugs with someone she met in college who later kidnaps and tries to kill her, which she has nightmares about. She's too stoned and shagged out to take in much, and when she gets her act together because of Boss' protectiveness and looking up to Gat he seemingly dies, making her so angry at herself for he and Boss feeling they needed to protect her when she should have been there for him and self loathing at her old self because she was weak from the sex and drugs.

** Of course, if we were to list all the Woobies in the game, we'd have about [[WallOfText half the cast]], but probably the single most unfortunate soul in the game is Arvo. Holy ''crap'' this guy. He's robbed by Jane and Clementine, he and his group shows up looking for revenge (which Arvo never even wanted to do) and are all killed, including his sister, and he's captured by the protagonists. He then spends the rest of his time on-screen tied up like a hostage, being left out in the cold, and being constantly abused and savagely beaten by the enraged Kenny until he is ultimately freed by Mike and vanishes while Clementine is unconscious, leaving his fate unknown. All this happens to a young kid no older than 20 who was just scared and trying to stay alive, and is clearly a good person at heart if his interactions with his sister and Mike are an indication.

** Just Clementine? If we were to list all the Woobies in the game, we'd have about [[WallOfText half the cast]]...

to:

** Just Clementine? If Kenny. The universe seems to love to give this guy a HopeSpot just to make the preceding boot to the balls that much more painful. His wife kills herself so she doesn't have to face their [[ZombieInfectee child turning]], his new girlfriend Sarita is bitten forcing him to either watch Clementine kill her, or kill her himself, and he's ultimately either killed by Clementine, the one person he has always been able to count on, or crippled in a car crash and [[HeroicSacrifice acts as a distraction]] so she can escape. Numerous optional dialogues also make it clear he's a [[BrokenBird mentally broken]] DeathSeeker who's forced to keep going because there's always something, Duck and Katjaa, Sarita, Clem, and A.J., that he feels he [[PapaWolf needs to protect]].

** Vivian from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' is abused constantly by Beldam. The pain stops when [[spoiler:she joins Mario.]]

* The {{Pikmin}}. Cute, adorable little plant creatures that gladly put themselves in the line of fire (and water, poison and electricity) and freely face the open maws of carnivorous insects, mollusks, bird-snakes and everything in-between, in order to help you rebuild your ship and profit your capitalist society. [[TearJerker But they won't ask you to love them]].

* Alyx Vance of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' has had it rough. When she was about three, aliens invaded Earth and killed her mother. She's spent all her life in the Resistance, fighting an Orwellian regime. In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', she has had her father captured, almost freed him only for a traitor to grab him, then get captured again when she tries to free him again. She is forced to reenter the Citadel to delay its impending explosion, had a train derail on her and dump her into a zombie-infested underground complex, then had to fight through a war-torn city to reach a train station. Then she is mortally wounded, revived and used to deliver a cryptic message to her father, then forced to watch him die horribly. Depending on events in Episode Three, that last one might have been a case of BreakTheCutie. And of course, she is clearly smitten with Gordon Freeman, who won't talk to her. [[HeroicMime Not that it's his fault, though]]. The fact that she can still function after all this is a wonder.
