Namespacing The Joker
* The {{DCAU}}'s rendition of [[spoiler: Ace from the Royal Flush Gang]]. [[spoiler: She's a scared pre-teen girl whose massive RealityWarper and MasterOfIllusion powers [[BlessedWithSuck have wrecked her life]]. She's first trained by the government, then joined TheJoker and the Gang, and ''then'' not only do we learn [[PersonOfMassDestruction that Joker wants to use her to kill/mind rape everyone]], but she ends up snapping and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard mind-raping him]]. It ultimately turns out that Ace's powers ''are killing her'' and she could potentially ''kill everyone in the whole city she's in'' as she passes away; and this happens in days when she's so desperately lonely that she has warped a part of a local park into a creepy house and kidnapped people to try making friends. Amanda Waller then tells Franchise/{{Batman}} to give her a MercyKill before she has her fatal meltdown, but when confronted by him Ace asks him to "StayWithMeUntilIDie", he complies and she dies quietly by his side, which keeps her from destroying the city. Batman then carries the kid's lifeless body in his arms, visibly and genuinely saddened by this.]]

** Stewie. Several facts of his life have been severe excuse of why he's a psycho. He claims to have lost his sanity while he was aware in Lois' womb.

Dead link and I can't find a replacement.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has Demona. To be fair, a lot of it is [[HoistByHisOwnPetard her own doing,]] but that poor girl has ''suffered.'' Losing almost her entire family, being abandoned by everyone she loved and trusted, and being hunted for a thousand years by a family who is extremely fond of DisproportionateRetribution? That'll mess anyone up. The only thing that keeps her going is her insistence that it's NeverMyFault; if she ever stopped [[IgnoredEpiphany denying the truth]], she'd implode. The episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-i9O88LSw-4&feature=related 'City of Stone']] (from 4:10 onward) gives us a very good example of how badly Demona is broken.

** Baxter Stockman. His character tends to go through massive changes with each version, but in both versions he starts off as a promising and well-meaning inventor who falls under the evil shadow of [[BadBoss the Shredder.]] After going through an insane amount of abuse from everyone, including the Turtles, he grows more hateful, devious, and cruel. Finally, a freak accident transforms him into an insane monster(Fly-mutant in the 87 series, Cybernetic brain in the 2003 one, and he sets out to destroy all those who wronged him, especially Shredder and the Turtles.

** Another example from the same show is Raven, who [[spoiler: will actually cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt]] and the [[MindRape episodes]] [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday leading up]] [[DespairEventHorizon to it]] make her Woobie status very clear.

** In the final season, [[spoiler:Kuvira]]. Like Amon, she too was a WellIntentionedExtremist, but also driven by [[spoiler:''severe'' abandonment issues, oweing to her own parents kicking her out when she was 8 years old, and seeing her nation being abandoned in the same way when it needed help most.]]

Actually, it's indicated both in the show and in other materials that Ursa did love Azula too, despite being less close to her than she was with Zuko.
** [[MagnificentBastard Princess Azula]]. Zuko may have been neglected by his father, but he still had [[MamaBear Ursa]] and [[BadassGrandpa Iroh]] to love him. Ursa saw Azula as a monster, Iroh was never there for her, and her father saw her as a tool rather than a daughter.

Ursa saw Azula as had a monster, Iroh strained relationship with Ursa (despite the latter's genuine love) and was never there for close to Iroh to begin with, and Ozai, despite favoring her, and her father ultimately saw her as a tool rather than a daughter.

* In the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' [[spoiler:Tarrlok]] and his brother [[spoiler:Noatak, better known as Amon]] turn out to be examples of this flavor of Anti-Villain. Their father was [[spoiler:Yakone, the infamous crime lord that Aang had defeated and [[DePower Depowered]] decades before the start of the series]]. [[spoiler:Yakone]] proved to be a [[AbusiveParents Horrible Father]], perhaps almost as bad as Ozai. [[spoiler:He forced Tarrlok and Noatak to learn bloodbending so that he could use them to exact his promised vengeance against Republic City. Ultimately, Noatak turned on him and ran away from home, with a festering hatred of bending that would one day lead to him starting the Equalist revolution under the guise of Amon.]] Ultimately, [[spoiler:Tarrlok kills himself and Amon by igniting the fuel tank of Amon's escape boat using an Equalist shock gauntlet.]]
