** There's something about the way Goliath carries the weight of the world on his shoulders (even without considering his tragic backstory) that just makes you feel sorry for the poor guy, for all that he is an epic {{Badass}}. The main villain from the same series, Demona, alternates back and forth between Woobie and OmnicidalManiac with disturbing ease, particularly in the episode "City of Stone", which revealed ''her'' tragic backstory.

Added DiffLines:

*Dog from ''WesternAnimation/CatDog''. While most of the time, he's a cheerful and happy go lucky sort of guy, whenever he gets hit with BreakTheCutie, he gets hit. Hard. He's been laughed at by the entire town of Nearberg for being a failure hero (Dog The Mighty), worked to the point of hypothermia in a sled dog race (Mush Dog Mush), almost sold off as a freak show attraction by his own brother after contacting a disease (Dog's Strange Condition), bullied by mailmen while in a depressed state (Fistful Of Mail), driven to the brink of paranoia (Safety Dog), spent an entire episode thinking he was allergic to his own brother (Sneezy Dog) and has been cheated and lied to several times by his own brother. He also came dangerously close to crossing the DespairEventHorizon in the Great Parents Mystery special. Basically, any time Dog looks emotionally hurt or starts shedding tears, it's enough to just want to reach into your screen and cuddle the poor pooch to make him his happy self again. Someone, please give poor Dog a hug!

* Poor, ''poor'' WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit, as we get to see in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey''. Wanna know why? First, he was abandoned by [[Creator/WaltDisney his own father]] over a [[DoingItForTheArt budget dispute]] with [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Charles Mintz]], and when Creator/WalterLantz took over the cartoons, Walt ''openly approved'' of Lantz using Ozzie. And it only got worse when Oswald's half-brother MickeyMouse usurped his original popularity, which, coupled with Lantz's change of the character, as well as the gradual rise of ScrewySquirrel characters over cute funny animals in the early 1940s (including Creator/{{Universal}}'s own new character, WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker) sent Oswald to his grave in 1943, after limping by for the last several years. You would think that in the world for forgotten Disney characters, he would have finally gotten [[EarnYourHappyEnding the happy ending he deserved]]. But nope, [[FromBadToWorse things got even WORSE for him]] -- said half-brother just happened to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidently spill a jug of paint thinner onto Yensid's world]], which would up ruining the whole place by turning it into a [[CrapsackWorld savage wasteland]], as well as unleashing the [[EldritchAbomination Shadow Blot]] upon the place, which would lead the entire world into even more mayhem and ruin, forcing Oswald and any remaining resistance underground--the lowest point of his life would be seeing his own wife, Ortensia the Cat, [[AndIMustScream frozen into stone]], the experience eventually degenerating him into a distrusting, bitter AntiVillain. And on top of that, he's manipulated by the Blot into becoming jealous and hateful of Mickey so he can be used to its advantage. [[spoiler: That said, he DOES finally get his happy ending when Wasteland is restored and he finally bonds with Mickey.]] Things are getting better for him in RealLife as well. In 2004, Japan had a gigantic craving for rabbit and toy companies began churning out [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies Oswald plushies]] which were insanely popular. Not to mention in 2006, Disney literally traded a ''human being'' (sports caster Al Michaels) to NBC in exchange for Oswald, showing that they [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming still truly care for him]] and that they want him to return home. And if you haven't yet cried for Oswald after hearing his story, try watching [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=369ZiUrwQTs this]] and see if you can keep a dry eye.

** A lot of people in Endsville can be this, actually: Grim, Billy, Irwin, Nergal, Junior... The town's always being tormented by some supernatural crap, and at least four of the aforementioned characters have been harmed/screwed over by Mandy (who, surprisingly, ''also'' counts sometimes).

** A lot of people in Endsville can be this, actually: Grim, Billy, Irwin, Nergal, Junior... The town's always being tormented actually:
***Grim, who has been enslaved
by some supernatural crap, a couple of children and is treated like crap
***Billy, a lovable idiot who suffers from CollAndUnusualPunishment
at least four times
***Irwin, who is an {{Adorkable}} [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] whose suffering is relentless and excessive
***Nergal, a creature from the Earth's core who [[IJustWantToHaveFriends can't make friend to save his life]]
***Junior, who is [[LikeFatherLikeSon in the same boat as his father]]
*** For the record, a lot
of the aforementioned characters have been harmed/screwed over by character's suffering comes from [[EnfantTerrible Mandy]], which is even ''worse'' when one realizes that Mandy (who, surprisingly, ''also'' counts sometimes).''always'' gets her way.

* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, from the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, may be THE Disney ChewToy...Yet some fans do feel for him greatly, mostly because in quite a number of the shorts his bad luck is there...because it has to be. In the comics by CarlBarks you even feel more sympathy towards Donald.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''
** Fenton Crackshell was extraordinarilly good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmoduck. But he also had a big case of bad luck and a tendency to screw things up, and he was beaten up by the Beagles ''four times'' in one episode alone. And he lived with his trailer trash mother, who would often care more about watching TV than listening to what her only son had to say. Not to mention that he was stuck with dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him. Of course, we're still talking about a relatively light-hearted cartoon, and plenty of this was played for laughs. But the poor guy deserved all of the breaks, that he could ever catch...

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''
''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'':
** Webby, so very much. Even though the boys allow her around and demonstrate that they really do care about her (sometimes), they often brush her off when she wants to join their project-of-the-week.

Added DiffLines:

** Doofus Drake. While he's typically used as comic relief, what the show reveals about his life isn't very positive. On top of being saddled with a cruel name, he's bullied at school by the Beagle Boys' younger brother and out of it by the Junior Woodchucks. Even Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby aren't above taking cracks at him and [[TheFriendNobodyLikes don't seem to really like him]], despite letting him hang around.

* Moosel from TheWuzzles. There are times where you just want to wrap the poor moose-seal hybrid in a big hug and tell him everything will be okay. The fact that his voice actor passed away thus ending the series somehow only amplified his {{Moe}} factor. In the Hollywuz episode, Hoppo pretty much treats the poor little guy as a doormat and in Moosel's Monster, the other Wuzzles yell at him for his over active imagination causing him to slowly waddle home. With tears in his eyes, Moosel laments that no one would want to be his friend with his overactive imagination not even himself.

* Several of the characters from ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' are considered Woobies. Some fans feel bad for Mr. Grumpy, though he doesn't get it as bad as the latter characters. Mr. Quiet and Miss Calamity due that they get bad luck. Mr. Bump due that he always get hurt, and even Mr. Happy from some of the fans. Whenever he feels sadness, anger, anxiety, etc, he hides it behind a smile so other people will still be happy, making him suffer in silence the most out of anyone in the show, without most of the Mr./Misses knowing.
