** Kaneki slowly becomes an AntiHero version of this trope. He begins the story as a meek college student, but his life takes a ''very'' different turn when he's transformed into a HalfHumanHybrid. After Yamori tortures him, he decides that he will "[[KillEmAll remove]] [[PayEvilUntoEvil all the weeds]]" and spends six months becoming one of the most feared Ghouls in Tokyo. Between [[spoiler: satisfying his HorrorHunger through cannibalism and slaughtering the members of the Ghoul Restaurant]], he becomes something of a mythological figure feared by Ghouls and [[TheHunter CCG]] alike. Our first glimpse of him after the TimeSkip is an ominous figure in shadows with one glowing eye, as imagined by a group discussing the infamous "One-Eye".

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' has Glemmy Toto.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', before having an encounter with Goku, Zamasu was just a Kai training to become a Supreme Kai under Gowasu's instructions but somewhat has a negative disposition towards mortals. But after his meeting with Goku thanks to a StableTimeLoop, Zamasu eventually began descending into darkness, becoming from a talented but not much stronger than Super Saiyan 2 Goku to an OmnicidalManiac whose incarnations have performed mass genocide of mortals across multiple universes and can easily overwhelm Goku and the Z-Fighters thanks to having Goku's body. Fusion Zamasu is especially strong enough that he is capable of going to-to toe with Vegito despite previously stomping Super Buu from earlier.
