* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', Poison Ivy can be classified as a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds because she is an eco-terrorist essentially because society harms Nature, her "babies", and she wants humans to stop hurting the planet. In addition, in Arkham City she locks herself up and really just wants to be left alone when Catwoman comes in and she sees herself forced to kill her.

* Sarah Kerrigan from ''Franchise/StarCraft'' killed her mom (and a whole mess of other folks) by way of a psychic accident, watched a kitten die of cancer, was forced to choose between killing her mentally ill father or her sadistic headmaster ([[TakeAThirdOption she just broke his gun]]) and decapitate a rebel leader (and steal his head), was experimented on, and was betrayed by her father figure. Then she got [[BodyHorror infested]] by [[HordeOfAlienLocusts the Zerg]]. Is it any wonder that she's a little crazy?

* In ''VideoGame/AnnasQuest'', the BigBad is [[spoiler: The Devil. The villain of the ''story'', however, is a young girl he tricked people into casting out for a murder she didn't commit, while she was still traumatised at losing her best friend.]]

** Original BigBad Kirie, a VirginSacrifice that lived for a decade in isolation prior to her ritual. In the final months of her life, she fell in love with a visitor to the manor......and learned just before the ritual that he had been murdered. Her heartbreak and guilt caused the ritual -- which involved tearing her apart with ropes -- to fail, flooding the manor with Malice and turning her into a vengeful spirit.

Her heartbreak and guilt caused the ritual -- which involved tearing her apart with ropes -- to fail, flooding the manor with Malice and turning her into a vengeful spirit. And even after she is free from the malice, she used her own body as a seal to prevent the gate from opening again for eternity. While the canon ending had Mafuyu staying with her to help ease her pain and burden, unlike the other main antagonists who were allowed to move on or at least find true peace, she would had spend eternity guarding the gate to prevent the malice from flooding the region again.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', this is one possible interpretation of BigBad PhysicalGod Dagoth Ur depending [[TheRashomon on the version of events]] you choose to believe. If you look past the [[CorruptChurch Tribunal Temple]] [[BlatantLies dogma]] regarding [[WhenItAllBegan the events leading up to and immediately following]] the [[PlotTriggeringDeath death of Lord Nerevar]], it is possible that [[DeityOfHumanOrigin the Tribunal]] cast Dagoth away to do exactly what Nerevar explicitly told them ''not'' to do, while convincing Dagoth that Nerevar had betrayed ''him'' in the process. [[spoiler:As with everything else relating to those events, the game [[TheUnreveal never makes it clear]] ''exactly'' what happened, leaving it to the player to draw his or her own conclusions]].

* [[spoiler: Eveline]] from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7''. [[spoiler: She was a young girl who was ruthlessly experimented on and turned into a living bio-weapon. She is so desperate to find the family unity she never had that she's willing to do anything. When Mia tried to find her after she went rogue, she is begging her caretaker to become her mom and has a emotional breakdown when Mia screams at her that she will never become her mother. When Ethan kills most of the Bakers and foils her plans, she laments how everybody seems to hate her and want to kill her, unable to truly understand the inherent evil in her actions. When Mia returns to the ship, she captures Ethan in a second attempt to make Mia reconsider becoming her mother, being so desperate that she even promises to make him love her forever, if Mia in return loves her.]]

* The Ur-Didact from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' was the military commander of the [[ThePrecursors Forerunners]] and led them in a war against [[AdvancedAncientHumans humanity 110,000 years ago]] that took the lives of all of his children. During the war, the Forerunners had discovered the existence of the Flood and begun devising plans to counter a resurgence. The Ur-Didact proposed shield worlds, huge mobile fortresses that could be dropped in and out of slipspace to combat Flood infestations while also acting as safe havens for species that are threatened by the Flood, while his political rival, the Master Builder Faber, proposed the Halo array, which would be used to cleanse systems of Flood by killing all sentient life within the desired area of effect. The Ur-Didact staunchly opposed the array, viewing it as an affront to the Mantle, the Forerunner's belief system that forms the basis of their civilization, since it involved killing off large numbers of lifeforms. His opposition lead to the halting of the construction of shield worlds, the diminishing of the rate the Ur-Didact belonged to, the Warrior-Servants, and his exile inside a Cryptum. 10,000 years later, he was awakened from his Cryptum during the final years of the war between the Forerunners and a newly resurgent Flood army by a pair of humans and a Forerunner manipular called Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting. When he discovered that a Halo ring had been test-fired by the Master Builder near Charum Hakkor, destroying the Precursor technology there [[AchillesHeel because it is vulnerable to the Halo array due to the technology being based on neural physics]], freeing the Primordial, [[spoiler:a surviving member of the [[RecursivePrecursors Precursor]] species that were responsible for seeding life across the galaxy and were hunted down by the Forerunners when they rejected the Forerunners' claim to the Mantle and control of the galaxy]], with whom the Ur-Didact had conversed regarding the nature of the Flood while the Primordial was held in stasis on Charum Hakkor, he performed a brevet mutation on Bornstellar, imprinting his personality and memories on him in the process, as a precaution in case he was captured or killed. [[ProperlyParanoid As the Ur-Didact feared]], he and his companions were captured by the Master Builder and he was abandoned in a Burn, a Flood-infested system, where he was subjected to MindRape by the Gravemind, which now incorporated the consciousness of the Primordial. The Gravemind intended to cause extra havoc within what remained of the Forerunner ecumene by returning the Ur-Didact to Forerunner space, where he was interrogated about his encounter, forcing him to recount his experience and causing him yet more suffering. He then began turning to more desperate and extreme methods to counter the Flood. This included a failed mutation of his body to try to make him immune to infection by the Flood, leaving him disfigured. He then turned to using the Composer to convert Forerunners into digital form and rendering them immune to the Flood. While the Ur-Didact's Promethean comrades willingly subjected themselves to composition, he believed that the reason that the Forerunners were unable to halt the Flood's advance was due to a lack of numbers in his [[MechaMook new Promethean army]]. [[KickTheDog He then decided to compose the remaining humans that his wife, the Librarian, had collected as part of the conservation measure]], believing that humanity's [[UnwillingRoboticization enslavement]] would redeem them of the crimes of their ancestors during their war with the Forerunners. This enraged the Librarian, causing her, one of the few people he didn't resent, to imprison in him in a Cryptum with the intention of healing his mind to be healed through meditation in the Domain, a vast repository of knowledge that was mysterious to the Forerunners. His actions also indirectly lead to the Librarians death since she was forced to return to Earth to collect new human specimens to save their species, leaving her stranded within the galaxy when the Halo array fired. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:the Domain was protected by Precursor technology and was damaged by the firing of the Halo array]], meaning the Ur-Didact was unable to access the Domain, culminating him in [[GoMadFromTheIsolation being subjected to]] ''[[GoMadFromTheIsolation yet another]]'' [[GoMadFromTheIsolation insanity-inducing event]] [[TimeAbyss for the next 100,000 years]] due to being limited in his ability to interact with anything outside his Cryptum. By the time he had been set free, the rest of his species had exiled themselves from the galaxy, meaning all the people he knew and cared about were either dead, had resettled on distant worlds, or were merely digital essences that made up what remained of his Promethean army. He also discovered the species he now came to loathe, humanity, was rapidly becoming prominent again with some help from the plans the Librarian had put in place for when the Forerunners had reseeded the galaxy. The Ur-Didact would then attempt to finish what he started by trying to compose the rest of humanity as well as try to regain control of the galaxy in the name of the Forerunners. After this failed, [[{{Hypocrite}} he decided to try to fire a Halo ring near Earth to eradicate humanity]]. This lead to his eventual defeat at the hands of the Master Chief, resulting in [[spoiler:him being subjected to the composer and being contained on the Composers Forge, the planet Clinquant. Because his mutation seemingly rendered him immune to the composer's effects, [[AmbiguousSituation he was]] ''[[AmbiguousSituation not]]'' [[AmbiguousSituation composed in the way that normally happens]]]].

*** This has since been revealed that Sargeras found that the [[EldritchAbominations Old Gods]] were corrupting planets growing baby Titans, and if allowed to be born could possibly allow the Void Gods to enter reality. He destroyed the corrupted planet and the child within rather than risk the destruction of reality. Unfortunately Azeroth is incubating a baby Titan.

** The orc warlock Gul'dan was born a cripple. He was shunned, beaten, and eventually exiled by his clan for his weakness. After weeks of starvation in the desert, he turned to the Throne of Elements and begged anyone who was listening to be made into something more, even if it was just a servant. The Elements came, but rejected Gul'dan. In that moment, the [[TheLegionsOfHell Burning Legion]] came to him. Now powered by the fel, Gul'dan killed his former clan and sought out to create a world where all would grovel before him. (Granted, the writers have said that this is Gul'Dan himself telling the story in question, and he may be something of an UnreliableNarrator, but at the least we can't say for certain he's ''not'' telling the truth.)
