Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })This is where a Wide-Eyed Idealist is psychologically beaten and broken down until they become more cynical in their views. May involve More Than Mind Control, the piling on of various misfortunes and traumas, or simply the fact that Growing Up Sucks, but the end result is that they end up wearing Jade-Colored Glasses.
May be a way to avoid the pain. If so, expect Hope Is Scary if they start to recover.
The trope name is a pun on Rose Colored Glasses and being "jaded". In an interesting coincidence, with "rose" being a shade of pink, and "jade" being a shade of green, two colors which exist on the opposite ends of a color wheel, jade literally is the opposite of rose.
Supertrope of Grumpy Bear, Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!, Silly Rabbit, Romance Is for Kids!, and Took a Level in Cynic.
Compare and contrast the Knight In Sour Armor, a character who manages to still be an idealist despite his or her Jade Colored Glasses. Possibly related to Break the Cutie.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Contrast The Pollyanna who is endlessly optimistic despite hardship or tragedy, and likely to tell this trope to take off the glasses because Silly Rabbit, Cynicism Is for Losers!, and Took a Level in Idealism for when a cynical character becomes more idealistic over time.

Akemi Homura in Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Living as a Magical Girl will do that to you.
Sayaka comes to a point that she sports a pair after learning some grave facts about becoming a magical girl the hard way before becoming a witch.
Kyouko used to be a Wide-Eyed Idealist, but had her optimistic worldview shattered when her father killed her whole family and then himself after finding out people only listened to his preachings because of the wish she'd made.
Then it was invoked and then defied with this sentence: "If someone says it's wrong to hope, I will tell them that they're wrong every time. I could tell them that countless times."

Bleach: Flashbacks reveal that Ryuuken Ishida used to be a Wide-Eyed Idealist who was under a lot of pressure to protect the future of the Quincies. A series of disasters occurred that culminated in him suffering an Heroic BSoD His Heroic BSoD slid over the Despair Event Horizon when his wife was murdered by the Quincy King and he's now very attached to the jade-coloured glasses he wears for all things Quincy. His son, who doesn't know the truth, is extremely frustrated with it. Yhwach's method of murdering Quincies creates a blood clot made of Stil Silver. Ryuuken autopsied his own wife to collect the silver in order to forge the only weapon capable of de-powering Yhwach long enough to kill him. Ryuuken's act ensures Yhwach's defeat, but leaves him forever despising his Quincy heritage. Uryuu accidentally witnesses the autopsy, vows to never become something that's forced to cut up his loved ones, and so changes his mind about becoming a doctor. After learning the truth, Uryuu becomes a doctor at his father's hospital, implying that he now understands that his father performed the autopsy because he was a Quincy, not because he was a doctor, and further implying that Uryuu may also have lost his desire to be a Quincy.

The main character in Invisible Man is an absolutely perfect example of this—he begins as a Love Freak and a Wide-Eyed Idealist, and ends up nearly knifing a guy for insulting him. It doesn't help that he was an Unwitting Pawn twice over and a victim of Yank the Dog's Chain at least three times.

In Monster, when Johan isn't breaking cuties he's handing out jade coloured glasses. The protagonist of the series, Doctor Tenma, is his special project in this regard. Johan can never find a pair that fits Tenma, even when he attempts a Thanatos Gambit. What's more, at the conclusion, everyone who manages to survive ends up taking them off and starts rebuilding his or her life with optimistic outlook on life.

Obito Uchiha in Naruto started out as a good kid until he got back from being crushed in a jutsu induced landslide just in time to see his best friend murder the girl he liked. After that, he starts an evil organization and plans to become a physical god.
Nagato could count as well. He started off as a sweet kid with hopes of changing the world for the better. But after being made into the universe's Chew Toy, and witnessing his best friend's death, he becomes determined that only pain can change the world.

In Baldur's Gate II, provided you don't give her a Happily Ever After ending as the Player Character's love interest, Aerie starts on the road towards getting one of these. In her ending, provided you didn't romance her or left her to ascend to godhood, she slips into the abyss during the course of a one-woman crusade towards slavery in the Sword Coast.

In Real Genius, Dr. Hathaway tricks Chris and Mitch into solving his problem with his "Death Star"-like laser, so he can keep the funding from the DoD. Mitch was a wide-eyed 15 year old, but Chris realizes what the ultimate use would be, since he was "a cynic." He let Hathaway distract him with the promise of a job after graduation. It took Lazlo, the guy who lived in the steam vents, to point out the only use for a high-powered, portable laser unit - assassinations.

A lot of people in Attack on Titan, but particularly Annie and Ymir, when it comes to selfishness versus selflessness and Heroic Sacrifice, respectively. As the series progresses, Armin becomes more and more accepting of doing whatever it takes to achieve his goals. Renier, Bertolt and Annie also suffer from a total loss of hope.

She's shown to be much more innocent as a child, but after the death of Lady Ginnem, she spends time in Bevelle where she sees the hypocritical treatment of Yuna before and after Braska's success, becomes prone to resentment, and learns that any "successful" pilgrimage ends in the summoner's death anyway.

Over the course of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gendo Ikari shows shades of cynicism in all directions following the "death" of his wife, Yui Ikari, when Unit 01 sucks her soul inside it and turns her to LCL then failing miserably to resurrect her, and finally, discovering that the first Rei clone he ever made from his attempts to rescue Yui, the one remnant of his wife's image, had been mercilessly strangled by Naoko Akagi in a fit of distraught anger (hearing that Gendo called her useless from Rei's mouth made her think it was her old enemy Yui taunting her), who killed herself violently after seeing what she did. At some point in his life, Gendo became afraid of bonding with anyone, even his son, and, having lost the one person in his life who truly understood and loved him, turns intensely cold, impassive, and morally oblivious to whatever he tries to do- only Instrumentality matters, for it will let him see Yui once more. In the midst of all this, Gendo literally ends up wearing tinted glasses after his old ones break while rescuing Rei from a superheated Entry Plug. While Gendo might seem to be heartless, he's really a Jerk with a Heart of Gold- down deep, there is regret for what he's done.

Jyu Viole Grace, aka 25th Baam, from Tower of God. Formerly a Wide-Eyed Idealist, a Naïve Newcomer who couldn't even grasp why people would fight each other when they didn't do anything bad to each other before turned cynical survivalist that is content with making everybody drop-out of the test he participates in since it's fairer that way. He doesn't believe that there is a way for everybody to be happy and tries to create a certain kind of equality this way, all while trying to find the person who betrayed him.

Discworld: When we first meet Sam Vimes, he's the ultimate cynic, and so beaten down by life that he has a serious drinking problem and doesn't even try to do his job. When we meet the 17-year-old Vimes in Night Watch, we discover he was idealistic and perky, and it took "30 years of being hammered on the anvil of life" to turn him into the man we know.
The Patrician, however (possibly the only character who's more cynical than Vimes) seems to have been born like that.

To an extent Rose from Homestuck. Ironically, not the character actually named Jade. She's a Wide-Eyed Idealist.
...so Jade wears Rose-Coloured Glasses while Rose wears Jade-Coloured Glasses?
John also gets hit by this in Act 6 as he grows up. In particular, he comes to realise that his beloved Con Air is actually a pretty terrible movie. Jade assures him that it's still a great Guilty Pleasure, but that doesn't help John, who sincerely used to believe it was good.
This subverted a year (in-story) later when John watches Con Air on a montage where he passes the time by himself as he waits to reunite with many of his friends after three years, and he loves the movie once again.

Michael Corleone from The Godfather started off as an idealist. He volunteered to fight in World War II and had no intention of becoming involved in the family business. Eventually, events suck him in, but he thinks he can make the family give up the life and go into legitimate business. By the end of Part II, Michael has become a cold, cynical Mob boss.

In Allegiance, Mara Jade, as the Emperor's Hand, tended to be sharp-tongued but was overall quite idealistic. She consciously felt that the Emperor was "a good and wise man", she believed that the Empire was fundamentally good with some foul elements that could be removed from within, and just in general she had a pretty stable existence. We see in Choices of One that she couldn't even really imagine being anything else, and found the sensation of missing someone to be alien. The Emperor's death changed everything—his last command to her was "YOU WILL KILL LUKE SKYWALKER," and it echoed in her head at dangerous intervals, her Force-sensitivity fluctuated on and off, and she saw the Empire for what it was—fundamentally foul with some good elements, and not ruled by anyone she felt was worthy. In the years after that she bounced between various non-Imperial non-Rebel groups, mostly smugglers, always leaving after her Force-sensitivity flared up and made her employer uneasy, and although her last employer, Talon Karrde, was by far the best, by The Thrawn Trilogy she was highly cynical. Mara means "bitter", and "Jade" fits that (and one of creator Timothy Zahn's dictionaries also listed, as another meaning for Jade, "discarded woman").

Alistair in Dragon Age: Origins loses his mentor, his place in the Grey Wardens and pretty much everything to his name during the course of his backstory and the first hour of the game. If you complete his personal quest in a way that shows to him that not even his own remaining family really cares about him unless it benefits them, he completes this transition.

Nessiah (A.K.A. the grim angel Aries) from Yggdra Union was at first a Messianic Archetype. However, after getting cursed and thrown out of Asgard by the corrupt magi, he went insane and started the massive plan that destroyed countless people's lives in order to exact vengeance on Asgard. When a Messianic Archetype gets broken, the result is not pretty.

X-Men Film Series
X-Men: Days of Future Past: James McAvoy observes in the "Double Take: Xavier & Magneto" featurette that his character's experience with Erik in X-Men: First Class had crushed Charles' rose-coloured glasses.
Logan: This occurs to Wolverine to a certain extent. He wasn't much of a wide-eyed idealist to begin with, but he was at least on the side of good and hope. By the time of Logan, he's just a man trying to live out the last of his days in peace until he can take himself and Xavier onto a boat and finally kill himself, and flat-out refuses to believe that their are other mutants left in the world, much less that he has any moral obligation to help them if there are.

John also gets hit by this in Act 6 as he grows up. In particular, he comes to realise that his beloved Con Air is actually a pretty terrible movie. Jade assures him that it's still a great Guilty Pleasure, but that doesn't help John, who sincerely used to believe it was good.
This subverted a year (in-story) later when John watches Con Air on a montage where he passes the time by himself as he waits to reunite with many of his friends after three years, and he loves the movie once again.

The Picture of Dorian Gray's eponymous character was given jade-colored glasses by Lord Henry. Rather than being "broken," Lord Henry simply puts thoughts into Dorian's mind that reminds him of how terrible the world can be and the fleeting nature of youth, beauty and the sheer pleasure that can be derived from living a life of debauch and leaving notions of innocence and kindness behind.

At the beginning of A Song of Ice and Fire, the lovely and ladylike Sansa Stark is an idealist who thinks the world works exactly like in heroic songs and fairy tales. By the fourth book her views have changed considerably, and she's being mentored by Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish.
Based on his backstory, Littlefinger went through the same cycle himself during his youth.
One of Sansa's other teachers, Sandor Clegane, went through this in his backstory and also tried to knock sense into Sansa before her idealism got her into even worse trouble. Arya didn't exactly have very rosy specs to start with, but he also helped make her aware of the amount of jading she still needed, too.
Brienne of Tarth manages to combine this with Wide-Eyed Idealist; she half-believes the world is like the songs, and is always shocked when someone breaks an oath or anything like that, but she's also resigned to never being able to sleep while there are strange men around, and occasionally having to beat seven shades of shit out of someone trying to rape her.
Jade-Rose Bifocals: the answer to your problem.

Being the Only Sane Man in a world full of atomic supercrazies, several of whom routinely come over to his house uninvited, does that to a guy, to the point that he's completely unwilling to do anything even remotely heroic if he can avoid it.

Finnish metal band Nightwish can be seen as this. While the earlier albums (from Angels Fall First to Wishmaster) high-fantasy and folk stories were a common occurrence in the lyrics and the music used to be more vivid and powerful, later albums (starting from Century Child) started bringing despair, loneliness and nostalgia for lost times as a common theme, and the introduction of a full orchestra for most of the songs brought an eerie "goth" feeling to the band, all of this culminating with Dark Passion Play, probably their darkest album overall.

Final Fantasy:
Squall from Final Fantasy VIII pretty much had these welded onto his face from a young age, when his "sister" Ellone was taken away from his orphanage, and due to his use of Guardian Force junctions - which erased his memories - he never got over the trauma. As a result, Squall grew up believing that it was better to push everyone else away and refused to make friends or even have any ambitions beyond proving himself strong enough to take care of himself.
Auron in Final Fantasy X was a Wide-Eyed Idealist and true believer in his first pilgrimage with Braska, but after he found out the truth and was killed in Zanarkand, he became a much more sobering influence on the pilgrimage with Yuna.

Archie Bunker of All in the Family had a pair of them throughout the whole series (and also in Archie Bunker's Place) but these got less thick over time. Justified by having lived through The Great Depression, having fought in World War II and having his thoughts discredited by the counterculture.

Ben Skywalker puts on some very tinted glasses immediately after Mara's death. He's mostly an odd mix of idealistic and pragmatic (merging both of his parents' traits, leaning slightly towards the latter), but losing his mother, the one person in the galaxy that he loved and admired the most (and could talk to without fear of anything), clouded his judgment and even caused him to go so far as kill in the name of revenge, causing Luke to forcibly stop that last attempt at killing Jacen (who Ben correctly guessed as Mara's killer), at which point Ben realizes he's gone too far. He recovers from that phase fairly quickly, but the tint's never going to wear off.

We have this occur in the Gensokyo 20XX series with Reimu and Yukari, the latter of which is a Broken Bird and the former playing the role of The Fatalist.

The Heather Wells Mysteries has protagonist Heather wear them by the time the story starts. She was pretty wide-eyed and idealistic when she was a teenaged pop-singer, but as she got older, she lost some of this. She ultimately became jaded when she was dropped by her label for insisting on singing her own songs, her mother consequently stole her life-savings and left the country and finally, Heather also walking in on her fiancé cheating on her with another singer.

Doctor Who has the Doctor himself. For all of his apparent youth and energy, it's hard to forget he's over two, perhaps even three thousand years old and was forced to kill his own peoplenote at least he thought so in the Time War; he still retains a lot of idealism, but he lets the cynicism shine through every now and again. Very apparent with the eleventh and ninth doctors.
In the Expanded Universe, Eight started off as bubbly romantic, but his entire run became darker and darker, until the end where he was more than willing to die off for good. It's only because the alternative was all existence being destroyed that he reluctantly regenerated into an incarnation (War Doctor) where the glasses were so dark that he won't use the name "Doctor" to describe himself at that point.
An extra scene in the New Series reveals this one of the reasons why the Doctor drags Companions around with him. They still have the youthful idealism and wonder that he used to enjoy.

Star Wars Legends:
In Allegiance, Mara Jade, as the Emperor's Hand, tended to be sharp-tongued but was overall quite idealistic. She consciously felt that the Emperor was "a good and wise man", she believed that the Empire was fundamentally good with some foul elements that could be removed from within, and just in general she had a pretty stable existence. We see in Choices of One that she couldn't even really imagine being anything else, and found the sensation of missing someone to be alien. The Emperor's death changed everything—his last command to her was "YOU WILL KILL LUKE SKYWALKER," and it echoed in her head at dangerous intervals, her Force-sensitivity fluctuated on and off, and she saw the Empire for what it was—fundamentally foul with some good elements, and not ruled by anyone she felt was worthy. In the years after that she bounced between various non-Imperial non-Rebel groups, mostly smugglers, always leaving after her Force-sensitivity flared up and made her employer uneasy, and although her last employer, Talon Karrde, was by far the best, by The Thrawn Trilogy she was highly cynical. Mara means "bitter", and "Jade" fits that (and one of creator Timothy Zahn's dictionaries also listed, as another meaning for Jade, "discarded woman").
Ben Skywalker puts on some very tinted glasses immediately after Mara's death. He's mostly an odd mix of idealistic and pragmatic (merging both of his parents' traits, leaning slightly towards the latter), but losing his mother, the one person in the galaxy that he loved and admired the most (and could talk to without fear of anything), clouded his judgment and even caused him to go so far as kill in the name of revenge, causing Luke to forcibly stop that last attempt at killing Jacen (who Ben correctly guessed as Mara's killer), at which point Ben realizes he's gone too far. He recovers from that phase fairly quickly, but the tint's never going to wear off.
Leia Organa in Splinter of the Mind's Eye has elements of this, contrasting dramatically with her brother. And with her portrayal in the Films.

Yeonho of Nameless is The Cutie, so Eri initially pegs him as The Pollyanna. As you'll learn throughout his route, he's really not.

Squall from Final Fantasy VIII pretty much had these welded onto his face from a young age, when his "sister" Ellone was taken away from his orphanage, and due to his use of Guardian Force junctions - which erased his memories - he never got over the trauma. As a result, Squall grew up believing that it was better to push everyone else away and refused to make friends or even have any ambitions beyond proving himself strong enough to take care of himself.

This happened to Nathaniel in The Bartimaeus Trilogy when Lovelace destroyed the house.
Although, to be honest, that didn't completely remove his naivete and beliefs about justice and honor, just diminished them. It was spending several years working in a corrupt, selfish, and paranoid government that resulted in glasses so jade he turned into a Villain Protagonist.

In Katawa Shoujo, Akira Satou is, contrary to her appearance, somewhat cynical as a result of her parents having abandoned her and Lilly in Japan to pursue a business opportunity in Scotland. Late in Lilly's route, when their parents decide to have both of them come back to Scotland permanently, thus forcing Akira to break up with her boyfriend, and potentially doing the same to Lilly, despite Akira approving of her relationship with Hisao,, Akira says "life isn't a fairytale," and that some people will have no choice but to do things that hurt themselves or others in response to life's harsher events. In a subversion, if Hisao manages to play his cards right, Akira will regain her faith in love - she will go to Scotland, yes, but her boyfriend will go with her and Lilly will stay in Japan with Hisao.

Tales of the Undiscovered Swords: Sasanoyuki is already an Emotionless Boy Broken Bird from self-hatred, but being exposed to the same past experience again on his kiwame turns him utterly bitter.
