Excuse me while I go find a container for my joy.
~ Debbie Thornberry
Pessimistic Heroes, or just simply Pessimists are individuals who anticipate undesirable outcomes, or "the worse". These individuals often express doubt on anything positive and present a gloomy or wrathful attitude much of the time. Unlike their opposites, Optimists, Pessimists are relenting in defeat.

Prime examples include Squidward Tentacles, Mandy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Raven, Zak from Dragon Tales, and Sadness from Inside Out.

They should not be confused with Heroic Misanthropes, since pessimists do not have a true animosity with humans.
