* ''IlivaisX'''s protagonist, Iriana Estchell, is this all the way. Her life essentially boiled down to being converted into a WetwareCPU by an abusive instructor who loved taking advantage of how pleasure is felt as pain for her, interspersed with more flat-out rape which was meant to promote her love-based Drive Core to consume her. She finally escapes [[spoiler:with Seyne's help]] and has in her possession an advanced SuperPrototype HumongousMecha powered by a PerpetualMotionMachine. "Destroy absolutely everything in the Aztec Empire" is now #1 on her list of priorities. There's only the slight problem of how she's not really THAT good at it, and said Aztec Empire isn't inherently evil at all.
* Zorc from ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged]]''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=Q3uEHstpRwQ Who's that crazy kook destroying the world?]]
** Also from ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged]]'', Marik, driven to "evil" because his own father tortured and neglected him. Even his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide evil alter ego]] Melvin was originally created to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CatVJI_sD0 "give him all the hugs he ever needed"]]
* Aman in the sketches of something, what may became [[http://http://www.youtube.com/user/GanXingba/videos Korra Abridged]].
--> ''"All I ever wanted was to someone laugh on my jokes, just once, but no one ever did. So I decided if I couldn't live my dreams, than I take everyone else dream by ridding the world of bending."''
* This is what Dr. Horrible becomes at the end of ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''.
* Voldemort in ''AVeryPotterMusical'' is only the way he is because no one ever loved him...and maybe with Quirrel, things would be okay?
* How can anyone not want to give [[TheSpoonyExperiment Dr Insano]] a hug after his plans go wrong?
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic seems to have a SplitPersonality problem, so you honestly do feel bad for him when he looks like he might cry after realizing an explosive tantrum of his blew up a city.
** Ma-ti, a semi-regular character of TGWTG until the third anniversary, has become this in the year between the third and fourth anniversaries. [[spoiler:He literally became a cosmic entity hell-bent on wiping out the whole TGWTG universe through a decision he forces upon the Nostalgia Critic.]]
** Alluded to by Creator/DougWalker in his ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' vlogs, admitting that if he had Fire Nation Powers he'd probably use them as revenge.
* [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Monster X]] in ''WebAnimation/TohoKingdomToons''. Sure, he's well-aware that the fangirls call him a "{{Woobie}}", but he also says that he's not giving up without a "fighty-wighty"
* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-231 SCP-231-7]]. What the Foundation is doing to her is apparently [[MoralEventHorizon the most horrible thing they've ever done]], and though they say they're trying to save her, there's a note that says we shouldn't believe this. We don't know what it is, besides "10 times worse than you think it is". However, failure to carry it out would cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
** The Foundation itself has a few other [=SCPs=] like this. To an extent, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-682 SCP-682]] is this too.
* The Storyteller from Blog/OffThePageAndIntoLife. All she wanted was to be able to see her deceased friends again...
* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' has Jaeris (aka the Gunslinger). ArcVillain he may be, but once you know his motives, its hard not to feel sorry for the guy.
** There's also [[spoiler: Margaret, the girl in Linkara's Magic Gun. The gun was created by Margaret's parents torturing and killing her as a sacrifice to their God, and in exchange she drove everyone who took up the weapon who was responsible for her death to madness and death.]]
