Woobie Destroyer Of Worlds: Web Original
- Ilivais X's protagonist, Iriana Estchell, is this all the way. Her life essentially boiled down to being converted into a Wetware CPU 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 with Seyne's help and has in her possession an advanced Super Prototype Humongous Mecha powered by a Perpetual Motion Machine. "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.

What the Foundation is doing to her is apparently 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.
