* Charlotte in ''PennyAndAggie'' is an interesting case. At first, she seems simply angry and bigoted, but we gradually learn more about her, her woobieness becomes quickly apparent. And then there's [[spoiler: the "Missing Person" arc, where she appears to have hit a MoralEventHorizon... only for things to drastically turn around and her woobie status becomes weapons-grade - almost literally, as it led to massive fan outcry for the ''death'' of [[ManipulativeBastard Cyndi]], something almost never before seen in the fandom]].

* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' has Oasis being quite Woobietastic, when she's not being AxCrazy or BadAss. IdiotHero Torg gets a few moments of this during That Which Redeems. Even Aylee gets it during her visit to the parallel world where her species exists.

* The official one is [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean James Norrington]] in ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' (he even has an "[[http://asherhyder.deviantart.com/art/Commodore-Catastrophe-Card-270111446 OH NO! James!]]" club, he is the TokenGoodTeammate and BeingGoodSucks), but sometimes also [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]] has his moments even if he is more of a JerkassWoobie (as he tries to fit in way too hard while being ''blessed'' with [[TheFairFolk nonhuman personality traits]] and a family from hell... his father even stole James' soul once, and he went WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds over it).

** Tavros, in [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003836 this update]] especially. Basically, an IneffectualSympatheticVillain with heavy emphasis on "sympathetic". Andrew just refuses to give the poor guy a break. [[spoiler: Accidentally running over his Lusus, forced to jump off a cliff in mockery of his greatest desire, his one attempt to to be assertive and helpful on his own ending up killing the grandfather of the human he had hoped to befriend...]] He eventually discovers his primary tormentor has actively created the unstoppable monster endangering them all. He finally decides to challenge her, not for his own sake, but for everyone's. As soon as she realizes he means it for once, [[spoiler:she promptly kills him for actually standing up to her.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{BetweenTheLines}}'' has Dani. Where do I begin? He's constantly physically and emotionally abused at school and ridiculed by his own parents because he cross-dresses. In the 3rd chapter, he nearly committed suicide due to all the turmoil and abuse, only to be sent to a mental hospital to get cared for. This puts Dani into a deeper depression, to the point that you want to hug the poor kid to make him/her feel better [[http://mekari.deviantart.com/art/Between-the-Lines-chap3-pg31-131166340]].

* Mecha Maid in ''Webcomic/Spinnerette''. ALS, [[spoiler: having likely been experimented on as a baby, indirectly caused the death of a major superhero in South Korea,]] the likelihood of her dying early with almost no chance of a cure being found, her feelings for [[spoiler: Spinny]] that originally seem unrequited, a trusted teammate leaving, the return of the man who is likely responsible for her ALS. The Colonel Glass arc stabs you in the heart with how things for her are.

* Keith Keiser of ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'': Accused of murdering his parents (He did kill his father - in self-defense, his father murdered his mother), exiled in order to protect his father's reputation (he was a high ranking military leader), manages to fulfill the impossible conditions of his exile (capture the Grand Templar, which happens to be Trace), only to be ordered to betray Trace (who he considers a friend) to the Bastians. And along the way, he develops feelings for the Kedrian assassin, Natani... self-loathing, misogynistic, gender-confused, biologically female Natani (Made worse because Bastians are prudish and xenophobic by nature and culture), and has been ordered to kill her to be accepted back into society.
