* ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' was more of a noble girl than princess, but had lived a life of happy luxury before her father remarried and then died, the family wealth was squandered, and she was abused and forced to become a servant by her WickedStepmother.
* Snow White in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' was born a princess but, like Cinderella, was forced to do the chores, dress in rags, and never leave the castle by her WickedStepmother and local Witch, who hoped to ruin her good looks. After nearly being murdered, she's forced to go through the scary forest and hide out in a cottage, where she takes over housework for the Dwarves. After the death of the Witch and being given a TrueLovesKiss, she probably reclaimed her birthright with the help of the Prince ''and'' reinforced it by marrying said Prince.
* A male example, Simba from ''Disney/TheLionKing''. Once a naive, curious cub, now a [[ItsAllMyFault guilt-ridden]] lion who's [[HeroicBSOD lost faith in himself]]. Fortunately he's encouraged by his father's ghost (and getting hit with a stick), and pulls through.

* Minako Aino/Sailor Venus of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' became this from her duties as a hero. She isn't stated to come from an rich family, nor is she an AlphaBitch, but she was the only Senshi besides Usagi to have a completely happy childhood. She was athletic, talented, and well-liked by her peers. Upon becoming Sailor V, peers started shunning her because working as Sailor V left her too busy for a social life. At the end of [[Manga/CodenameSailorV C:SV]], she learned that [[spoiler: her one true love was a Dark Kingdom member, and she had to kill him]], knowing that though she was the soldier of love, she'd never get to fall in love, because her duty would always come before all, even her own personal happiness. Unlike Ami, Rei, or Makoto, who were all loners until they became each others' and Usagi's TrueCompanions right after becoming Senshi, her status as a Senshi actually made her life ''worse'', at least until she found companionship in her fellow Senshi, a year after becoming Sailor V.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' Adagio Dazzle fits this figuratively and literally. She is still snide, scheming, and proud AlphaBitch; but deep down she's a LovableAlphaBitch and all of her behavior is born out of stress from caring for her cousin and baby sister after her aunt Hymnia died when they were outcast of no fault of their own.
