* [[TroubledButCute Sonny]] from the independent, ComingOfAgeStory ''Film/Trash'' 1999. He starts off the movie as a well-intentioned, if slightly [[HairTriggerTemper gruff]] young man i.e. he fights his peers to a bloody pulp as a hobby but loves looking after small [[FriendToAllLivingThings animals]] and [[FriendToAllChildren children]], which include his [[MoralityPet infant niece]] and the [[ChildrenAreInnocent adorable]] [[DisabledMeansHelpless down syndrome afflicted little brother]] of his best friends LoveInterest (whom he also seems to have a thing for). Over the course of the movie however he goes on to kill three people and a [[AndYourLittleDogToo little dog]], without seemingly any real reason to. Even after he rightly gets arrested for this, you canít help but feel bad for him. To sum his life up; heís the breadwinner for a family that consists of a [[AbusiveParents violently drunk dad who regularly beats the crap out of him and a crack addict mother]] who only stops her husband by stating that their son ''ainít worth it'' (dear old dad follows this up with a straight forward IHaveNoSon tirade)! Itís no wonder that at the end his [[spoiler: SuicideByCop actually feels like a ''blessing'']]!
