* Dr. Fell, a villain from ''[[Literature/{{Nightside}} The Good, The Bad And The Uncanny]]'', started out as one of the Nightside's rogue vicars: preachers who come to the notorious WretchedHive to save its sinners. Lampshaded by John, whose narrative points out that when religious idealists go bad, they tend to go ''really'' bad.

* This is probably OlderThanFeudalism, and at least OlderThanPrint as an apocryphal legend (perhaps inspired from a reference to Nebuchadnezzar in the Book Of Isaiah[[note]]which scholars believe to have been writen between 740 and 648 BC, thus being almost OlderThanDirt, its author perhaps even having been born in the period in which stories were this[[/note]]), says that Lucifer was originally the most beautiful of the angels of God and was called "son of the morning", untill he began to want godlike power / supremacy over humans, fell prey to {{Pride}}, was banished out of Heaven and became Satan.

* During the course of Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall'', Pink sinks further and further into isolation and goes mad, the fragmented parts eventually giving way to the ultimate embodiment of all his negative emotions, which take the form of a fascist dictator -- the same kind of evil that originally killed his father and established the very first brick in his emotional Wall.

* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': L. In his attempts to stop Kira from killing him and ruling the world, he ''becomes'' Kira. His own inability to realize this is one of the main sources of conflict in the story.

* It has been supported by the UsefulNotes/MyersBriggs personality test's theoricians that, whenever an unstable person with a given MBTI type is confronted to extreme stress, she adopts behaviors of the "shadow" type, giving in to her own "shadow", and therefore using their cognitive function in reverse order of importance if not even using the cognitive functions they are not supposed to use naturally.
** Studies led by enlightened amateurs on message boards suppose that this stereotypically tends to involve someone with a type that is supposed to demand a lot of conscious effort to uphold his way of life lapsing into a more instinctive behavior which betrays one's values. The most commonly reported example is a [[IncorruptiblePurePureness stereotypical INFP]] (Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving) personality type (referred to as "an INFP") becoming an [[StrawmanPolitical "evil" ESTJ]] (Extroverted Sensing Thinking Judging). Other common examples include a [[TrueCompanions stereotypical ISFP]] (Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving) becoming an [[EvilOverlord "evil" ENTJ]] (Extroverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging), and a [[SpiritedYoungLady stereotypical INFJ]] (Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging) becoming an [[AlphaBitch "evil" ESTP]] (Extroverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving), which sounds very puzzling, at least to people who haven't been exposed to the MBTI stereotypes. Rather strange discussions on the otherwise perfectly understandable [[http://personalitycafe.com/ PersonalityCafe site]] center on this, enlighting both the irrational reaction provoked by people who identify with a shadow type of the type with which one identifies, and the deep emotional reaction ''this trope'' provokes. This is ''losing oneself'' per excellence, after all.

*** Likewise, Arthas' girlfriend, Jaina Proudmoore, used to be one of the biggest promoters of peace between the Horde and the Alliance due to their teamwork at Mt. Hyjal to drive away Archimonde, enough that she would see her warmongering father dead for peace even if she grieves about it. Then the Horde, now under Garrosh Hellscream, willy-nilly nuked her home Theramore, and after that, every reasonings were lost to Jaina, she became a warmonger that wants the Horde destroyed for her own vengeance, even citing that her father was right, with people saying that she just became a warmonger blinded by hatred, just like her father.

* ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'' has [[spoiler: Theodora]]'s CharacterDevelopment as one of the main points of the movie and its attacks on Oz's selfishness. Due to his actions, poor Theodora ends up going from TheCutie to a disapointed and resentful NaiveEverygirl to (briefly) a bitter WomanScorned who is a bit too focused on her problems to [[spoiler: The Wicked Witch Of The West]].

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'': Gohan falls into this during the Cell Games. Compare Gohan before he unlocks Super Saiyan 2 and after. Before [=SS2=] - a humble, soft-hearted MartialPacifist who makes it clear on more than one occasion that he doesn't like to hurt people, not even truly evil monsters like Cell. After [=SS2=] - an arrogant, borderline {{sadist}}ic, {{revenge}}-driven SmugSuper who eagerly beats Cell within an inch of his life and even deliberately prolongs the CurbStompBattle [[RevengeBeforeReason just because he wanted Cell to]] ''[[RevengeBeforeReason truly]]'' [[RevengeBeforeReason suffer before he died]]. Thankfully, he snaps out of it, but only after his actions backfire horribly.
