God, you just reminded me of my own cringetastic Medabots OC. What is with Medabots and cringe?
(We were all watching as kids and made the OCs as kids. That's probably it.)
I don't remember the original context for my OC, but I'm pretty sure they were a Rokusho rip-off. If, you know, Rokusho was a dragon/dragonfly. And quadruped. And totally did not fit with the style of the show (@younger me, WHY were they a natural quadruped, no fucking Medabot was a proper quadruped). I kinda remember my revision where they were rusting and trying to hunt down someone, fuck if I can remember. And they die and it's upsetting and it's plotted as well as a kid writing fanfic can do. Sadly, or maybe fortunately, I never got around to writing it.
(Some warning for casual discussion about rape)
As for someone else's character, I need to emphasize this was on a chat-based site several years ago. The user may have changed personally, the user may have been projecting, I don't know. All YOU need to know is I was a mod for a pokemon rp chat, and this user came in with a character: female trainer with a Sneasel starter. Ok, I don't have a problem with that. Trainer's backstory involves her being raped by her dad. That's concerning but, if I'm frank, I see a lot of characters with rape in their backstory. I mentally check 'rape' on my 'Is This Character Too Edgy' list, move on. There's a Sneasel egg. The Sneasel egg hatches. The Sneasel joins in on the rape.
I read that shit like three times, and am still not convinced to this day I didn't misinterpret this. Because there's just no way someone meets their starting pokemon because it RAPED them.
It takes a while but I do persuade the user to tone it down significantly to 'trainer is being assaulted when the egg hatches and the Sneasel chases off her assaulter'. So, maybe not the most cringy/confusing OC given the fact that the player was willing to change. I probably do have cringier and more convoluted characters in my archive, from people unwilling to change.
But dear lord, I'm still confused why that happened in the first place.
