* Franchise/DanganRonpa ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'': Given the setting of where the franchise takes place at and the killers tend to be [[SympatheticMurderer sympathetic ones]], more than a few of the characters tend to be this.



** Pretty much a majority of VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 cast has some {{Woobie}}-ish elements to them with Kazuichi, Hiyoko, and Fuyuhiko being JerkassWoobie characters, Peko being a StoicWoobie, and Akane, Sonia, and Nagito being IronWoobie characters. Anime/DanganRonpa3 even went on to turn Mahiru into a Woobie character. However, the biggest Woobie of the game has to go to Mikan for arguably having the lowest self-esteem out of all of the characters, being a FragileFlower, spending a long time being bullied, and [[spoiler: honestly believing that [[BigBad Junko Enoshima]] loved her]].

*** Chiaki became one [[spoiler: after she committed murder just by pure accident and attempts to make a HeroicSacrifice just to save her fellow students and proceeds to be executed despite her never really intended to kill anybody in the first place. And that wasn't even getting into what happened to her humanoid form in Anime/DanganRonpa3 in which she was betrayed by her BrainwashedAndCrazy teacher, went through a ''very brutal death'' that made her execution in VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 look incredibly peaceful in comparison, and dies by cursing out her uselessness in front of her former boyfriend who doesn't even remember who she is]]. And all she wanted to do is have friends to play games with.
*** Hajime dreams about getting into Hope's Peak Academy in which while he make it to Hope's Peak Academy, it was [[spoiler: because he became a reserve course student who has zero talent whatsoever. He didn't enjoy getting into Hope's Peak Academy like that and he [[IJustWantToBeSpecial wanted a talent and escape his second-class status very badly]] that he went through a human experiment that turned him into a mass murderer, bitter and bored with existencey leaving no trace of the cynical but good-hearted Hajime left. That said mass murderer is also one though given how he ended up crying [[YouAreTooLate moments after his former girlfriend died in front of him]]]].
*** After Anime/DanganRonpa3, the entire cast as a whole can be considered to {{Woobie}} characters since [[spoiler: they were brainwashed into becoming members of the Ultimate Despair and they can't return to general society after taking the fall for the final killing game.]]

** From Anime/DanganRonpa3, all that Kimura wanted to do is be friends with Andou [[spoiler: even in her final moments.]]
*** Ryota (aka somebody who has been bullied in the past) just wanted to spread hope across the world [[spoiler: by playing an anime program. Too bad that Junko used that anime program for her to brainwash his classmates into becoming members of the Ultimate Despair in which one of them nearly attempted to rape him after being brainwashed.]] Then, [[spoiler: a man Ryota trusted became the mastermind so that he can break the guy into committing mass brainwashing upon the world causing him to become a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.]] This kid can't catch a break.
*** While some of the members of the Hope's Peak Student Council are more sympathetic than others, people should feel bad for a bunch of scarred kids as they are being brutally killed.
*** Makoto became one after he [[spoiler: watched a video showing his dead classmates including [[LostLenore Sayaka and Kyoko]] taunting him and outright stating he should of died instead of them.]]
*** As noted above with Mahiru, she attempted to be kind to Natsumi who bullied her in middle school and sees her as a somebody to get rid of just so that Natsumi can be in the main course. And once Mahiru attempted to break a fight between Natsumi and Sato, she nearly got hit by Natsumi. And once Nastumi and Sato died, she began sobbing knowing that she was not able to stop the conflict between those two girls.

* AssassinsCreedI has the protagonist Altaïr and his closest friend and Assassin brother Malik. Altaïr's life is a series of tragic events, starting with his fathers execution which he had to witness, the hatred his adopted brother Abbas had for him because he spoke the truth, Adha's death and a series of betrayals which cost him his son, [[SecondLove wife]] and best friend. And that is only to name a few. He's had it very bad and because birds of a feather flock together so did Malik, though to a lesser extend. He had to witness his brother look up to someone he hated, lost said brother ''and'' arm because of Altaïr's arrogance, got accused of killing his best friends son, got imprisoned and, after clearing things up with Altaïr, beheaded by Abbas. Altaïr is, probably, an IronWoobie while one can't be sure about Malik. Then again, the same goes for Altaïr.
