** Erin becomes this as the story progresses. She's betrayed by [[spoiler:Misa again]], is often talked down to and mocked by Near and his team apart from Stephen, and [[spoiler:her cat Lawliet gets run over by Kimiko after Kimiko falls OffTheWagon]]. To top it off, Erin is stuck with a shinigami [[PoisonousFriend who claims to love her]] and [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace will not]] [[StalkerWithACrush leave her alone]]. This last bit becomes all the more disturbing when you remember that [[spoiler:Umbra is all but outright confirmed to be the reincarnation of L, a man with whom she'd already had a deeply troubled relationship in the past and with whom she'd parted on very bad terms in the prequel]].

** Teru [[spoiler:tries to kill Erin with the notebook because of her speech against Kira's views (and because she's apparently defending a school being investigated for abuse allegations, which is a very sore spot for him)]]. As Umbra notes, the bullied has become the bully.

** Kimiko, Misa's previously estranged sister and a blind recovering alcoholic. Her relationship with her parents was always strained due to her [[spoiler:being an illegitimate child from an affair on their mother's part]], and according to her they always favored Misa over her because of it. After failing to start a relationship with her actual father, she began drinking and became increasingly unstable and rebellious, accumulating in their parents throwing her out of the house after one particularly violent dispute. Mr. and Mrs. Amane would later be murdered before she got the chance to make up with them, making Misa "all she has left." [[spoiler:Cue Misa running away right after Kimiko confesses all of this to Erin. This eventually leads to her falling OffTheWagon, and accidentally killing Erin's cat while she's at it]].

* JerkassWoobie: Misa. Despite her past actions [[spoiler:and current ones, such as abandoning her blind sister without warning]], her selfish personality and serious LackOfEmpathy for others, she is also a self-hating mess, feeling empty and unworthy of love. Her coming to terms with the fact that [[BrokenPedestal Light never cared about her at all]], especially after realizing that Lumen is [[spoiler: Light reincarnated]], makes her more pitiable than hateful.

** Does Misa still care for Erin and Kimiko despite [[spoiler:siding with Mello after regaining her memories]]? Or is she incapable of truly caring for anyone in the first place? Also, is her [[spoiler:alliance with Mello]] out of a desire to punish herself and ultimately fulfill her death wish? Or is it because she still believes on some level in Kira's goals of punishing criminals and Mello is the closest person she could find to latch on to with that many similarities to Light?

** The whole Yagami family counts, but Sochiro is this especially, being left to deal with the fact his son was a mass murderer and struggling to keep this fact a secret from his wife and daughter. After Light's death, he apparently suffered a stroke which left him handicapped and ended his career as a policeman. Just when you think it can't get any worse, Lumen [[spoiler: (suggested to be Light reincarnated)]] decides to start [[KickTheDog stalking and threatening him and his whole family, all the while calling him "Father" and "Daddy"]].
