* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': The once effervescent and idealistic Xavier we saw in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' has crumbled into a heap of melancholia and cynicism after 1963. His telepathy, which he had been at ease with since he was 12 years old, has suddenly become a heavy burden that he avoids using at all costs. Charles' social drinking has deteriorated into alcoholism, and he gives up on other activities that he used to enjoy, such as teaching, scientific research and womanizing, in favour of a self-imposed exile from everything that exists beyond his mansion. Xavier has more or less reduced himself into a ManChild who is completely dependent on Hank, when in the other movies, various mutants rely on the paternal telepath for emotional support. Even the way he dresses has changed dramatically; the impeccable suits that define Professor X's style have been replaced by a gaudy paisley shirt paired with a brown leather jacket, or if he's feeling especially lazy, just an undershirt with jeans. Charles has also neglected his grooming, which makes him look like a confused hippie or a hobo instead of a well-adjusted, upper-class academic.

* In "Fall of the Simpsons", ''WebVideo/SuperEyepatchWolf'' explains his reason for ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' infamous SeasonalRot: in its heydey, [[DeconstructorFleet it was a vicious mockery of kitschy sitcoms]], and it preferred nuanced characters and structured jokes over caricatures and cheap gags. But around the TurnOfTheMillenium, staff changes turned it into the mediocre sitcoms of the 1980s that it satired.

* On the topic of Disney films, ''Disney/SnowWhite'', the queen is extremely vain, with a fair voice and decent looks. In her jealousy of Snow White, though, she ultimately brews a potion that turns her into an old hag with a croaky voice, and she never returns to her original form before dying.

* Some "Indie" producers have actually wound up ''becoming'' the Big Business they fought against in their early years. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment That is all we will say]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[DarkMessiah John Rumford]] and the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Christian Marines]] in military thriller ''Literature/{{Victoria}}''. As former servicemen, they were trained to fight for the United States government; but the phenomenally gifted, but slightly unstable Captain Rumford became convinced that the country was irredeemably morally corrupt after he was cashiered for his right-wing opinions. Following a period of self-education in philosophy and politics, he then began gathering fellow veterans and sympathizers into an armed secret society, preparing for the day when the whole rotten system would fall. A third of the way through the book, they are basically a fundamentalist Christian version of [[Film/FightClub Project Mayhem]], only much more heavily armed.

* It is not unheard of for teenage girls who get in with [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys the wrong boy]] or vice versa [[LoveMakesYouEvil to turn out this way]] in regards to how they behave around parents and friends. On at least one episode of Investigation Discovery's ''Deadly Women'', a sweet-hearted teenage girl started dating a warlock-wannabe who was a few years older. She quickly turned cruel and manipulative, and in the end, became a cold-blooded killer.

* This happens to Jack in the 8th season of ''Series/TwentyFour'' when he snaps and goes on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. While he previously averted RevengeBeforeReason (while he's never been above revenge, he always had standards regarding it, only targeting the person who actually wronged him and never doing so if it would compromise the greater good), now he even ends up killing some of the head antagonist's accomplices [[MisplacedRetribution just for being associated with them]] despite having nothing to do with the actual crime he's seeking revenge for. Just one season prior he chastises [[spoiler: Tony]] for using the death of his loved ones as an excuse for causing mayhem to carry out his own selfish goals, and winds up doing the same thing after his own love interest is killed, being willing to [[spoiler: start World War III]] if it means killing the mastermind behind it. Thankfully, thanks to a much-needed verbal smackdown from Chloe he finally snaps out of it.
