** When Hawke returns after being on the run for four years, it's clear that all of his/her failures during ''II'' have clearly taken an irreparable toll on his/her self-esteem. Even Snarky!Hawke is considerably more serious and bitter. If s/he had a love interest in ''II'', they are either already dead by his/her own hands, or [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim s/he broke it off with them in order to protect them]], leaving him/her even more alone than s/he already was near the end of ''II'', with only [[UndyingLoyalty Varric]] keeping in constant contact. On top of all of this, s/he feels personally responsible for the entire mess now occurring, having been unable to stop the Mage/Templar War from beginning and having unknowingly failed to kill [[spoiler:Corypheus]] after awakening him.

** Implied? The final ending of the game reveals that [[spoiler:the entire game was all a DyingDream because he was ''DrivenToSuicide''. The reason? He blamed the destruction of his family on himself, and saw himself as a demon.]] ''Yeesh''.

* You know [[{{Gungrave}} Grave]] is gonna have it hard when he's the lead character...and he's also "''dead''". He's lost pretty much everyone he ever knew and loved, as well as almost all of his emotions and memories, and was forced to kill the man who was once his closest friend. The one bright spot left in his "life" is Mika, the daughter of the woman Grave (when he was Brandon) loved but could never be with, and said daughter [[spoiler: risks her own health and uses her own blood in Grave's necessary transfusions to avoid degeneration of his body]]. And the time he spends with Mika is always short--since he's already dead there's next to no chance of him "living" a normal life with her. Sure he's known as "The Killer Without A Soul"... The anime series really makes you just feel ''sorry'' for the dual-wielding zombie killing machine.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' has what may very well be one of the grand champions of this in the main series of games with [[spoiler: AZ.]] [[spoiler: Formerly the King of the Kalos region, He had a Pokemon he loved truly and dear to him in the form of a Floette. Yet it eventually died during a great war and was brought back to him in a coffin, sending him into a pain filled grief, determined to bring back his Pokemon. He built a machine that could, and succeeded. But his grief turned to rage at the world that took his Floette away from him, turning his machine into a weapon that singlehandedly ended the war. Yet in all this, his Floette, appalled and saddened by his actions, left him. The resulting exposure of the machine's energy caused both to become immortal, and AZ walked the Earth for 3000 years to find her. He has a happy ending, in which he finally lets go of his anger and sadness, and meets her once again.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uj2lzEUVto His theme song]] [[TearJerker really drives his woobieness home]].

* In ''VagrantStory'', we have Samantha of the Crimson Blades. [[spoiler: Though technically an antagonist, she appears to be a sympathetic character who [[TragicDream dreams]] of gaining immortality with her lover, [[DarkMessiah Guildernstern]]. However, Guildenstern eventually stabs her as a sacrifice for his own 'cause'. His final words to her are "I love you, Samantha. As God is my witness." to which she responds "[[WasItAllALie "I...too, once thought so..."]] before [[TearJerker falling off the Grand Cathedral's rooftop]].]]

* ''TraumaCenter'' is essentially a medical drama, so characters of this type are to be expected to an extent, but Emilio Juarez is the biggest Woobie of them all - he was orphaned as a child, then kidnapped and used as a lab rat by a bio-terrorist organization developing [[BodyHorror Body Horrors]] until Derek came to said organization's base and surgically wiping out the ones that he was basically being used as a living habitat for when he was fourteen. Three years later, probably in a delicate physical state after all that to begin with, he gets sick from the aftermath of his BodyHorror infection and needs two more surgeries, one of which is an organ transplant. And, wouldn't you know it, while he's convalescing in the hospital for what looks like finally the last time, [[spoiler: cue another mass outbreak of parasites in which he, of course, gets infected, and dies - because he insisted that Derek operate on his [[LikeBrotherAndSister nurse]] before him.]] Oh, and he's really rather adorable, in a waif-y sort of way.
