** She is perfectly okay with killing a doomed John.John (though admittedly, she didn't know it would doom him and she couldn't have seen the resulting doomed timeline anyway, so it was easier for her to wave off). Then she [[TheseHandsHaveKilled watches a doomed Dave have his throat cut]], [[HeelRealization and runs out of the room in tears]].

* Holly Hollister of ''{{WebComic/Endtown}}''. She always had her issues, but up until the Unity arc she'd been mostly-functional, even after recovering from a suicide attempt. Her hard swerve into dysfunctional insane-{{Jerkass}} territory came shortly after a mid-arc rewrite (prompted by an illness-induced hiatus) in which the author [[{{DerailingLoveInterests}} upgraded a bit-part character into a main character and new love interest while adding an event, nonexistent in the original plot outline, implied to have driven Holly off the deep end, after which she started lashing out at her companions and lover (something she'd never done before, even when she was disturbed enough to attempt suicide)]]. The creator used to produce large amounts of art of Holly (including concept art of her travelling the wastes with her lover and reaching a green and verdant place), but ceased doing so around the time of the rewrite/hiatus. In more recent times he has instead expressed great affection for Kirbee, holding her up as his favourite type of person (the [[{{PollyAnna}} eternal optimist]]).

* The protagonist of the webcomic ''TheLounge'', Italy Ishida, seems to get a pretty large dose of this, cross pollinated with NoBisexuals.
* Matt in {{Concession}} went from being a shy and polite virgin Christian boy who happened to be bisexual into a sex obsessed, diaper wearing, cross dressing, BDSM junkie who has sex with transvestites behind his boyfriends back and uses dark magic to fight priests who are trying to save the world.

* In ''RedString'', the author suddenly fell in love with a different love interest for the main character, Miharu, and had a problem in that she'd invested a lot of time in the ''original'' male lead, Kazuo, and how they were destined to be (as in the red string of the title). Near the end of the comic, Kazuo suddenly devolved into a creepy, awkward loser that "couldn't let go" - but as he rightfully points out, Makoto is a terrible person and in the very scene where he says this, Makoto has literally yanked Miharu away from him and yelled at her for continuing to associate with him. Naturally, as people still persisted in hating the CreatorsPet that was Makoto and still expected her to give Kazuo a fair shake, Gina portrayed Kazuo as forcing himself on Miharu as a last ditch effort to appeal to her. She wrote in an author's note on the original page that she did so to portray the scene as having "consequences" for him. He had never been portrayed as being this desperate and the act was clearly intended to contrast negatively to Makoto. The backlash from the original page (which showed Miharu actually wiping the kiss off) was so powerful that Gina eventually tried to redraw the page, but most of the fans still saw it as the JumpTheShark moment it was. Note that Makoto, despite constantly forcing himself on Miharu while she was dating Kazuo, is brushed off even by the woman he cheated on for Miharu as him just being a "flirty goofball." And in the final slapped together epilog that the author only wrote to get people to stop bugging her about what happened to Kazuo? Oh, she shows him as ''happy'' that Miharu has completely blown him off...when mere hours earlier, he was declaring that he still loved her.
