* PlayedWith and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' when [[spoiler: Queen Elsa uses her powers to [[PayEvilUntoEvil attempt to murder two men]] after taking great precautions not to harm people with her powers, and ultimately failing. The subversion comes in because not only was it self defense, but because Prince Hans helps Elsa choose to spare the two men.]]

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 2nd Edition, a Blackguard is Prestige Class that is an EvilCounterpart of a Paladin; many were originally actual Paladins before they committed some unforgivable crime, even getting class bonuses if that was their previous class.

See also HeWhoFightsMonsters, AscendedDemon, FallenAngel, FallenHero, StartOfDarkness, TheHorseshoeEffect and TheParagonAlwaysRebels. Compare and contrast HourglassPlot, though it can sometimes overlap, when two opposite characters are becoming this trope.

[[folder:Music]]
* During the course of Creator/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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', Cree Lincoln went from hero of the KND to kid-hating-teenager, becoming ''the embodiment'' of what she had despised and fought against while still on the team. And it would seem she isn't the only one; the whole reason operatives are subjected to LaserGuidedAmnesia and mandatory retirement upon turning fourteen is because so many of them have turned traitor.

* Throughout the third series of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Nico, who had previously fought to avoid turning out like her dark-magician parents, increasingly embraces her heritage as a dark-magic user to make her life easier. After she employs MindRape on Klara in the final arc, Molly, whose own parents were enthusiastic mind-rapists, accuses Nico of acting like one of the Pride.

** The First Order to the Galactic Empire that preceded it in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': while believing they carry on the legacy of Emperor Palpatine, in reality they are being terrorists that struggle against the established government to restore the regime that preceded it, which is what the Empire had called the Rebel Alliance.

* The Eastern Brotherhood of Steel as of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. Owyn Lyons lived in self-imposed exile in the Capital Wasteland for refusing to follow the Western Brotherhood's self-destructive policies. After his death, his daughter Sarah tried to continue his teachings until ''she'' died in battle a few years later. Once [[AChildShallLeadThem Maxson]] took over, the Lyons' teachings were lost and the Brotherhood became much like [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas the Mojave chapter]] but without the NCR to {{curbstomp|battle}} them. It seems the inevitable fate of any Brotherhood chapter is to either turn tyrannical or be destroyed by their beliefs. [[DramaticIrony Ironically enough]], if you were to pinpoint a [[PoweredArmor power armour]] and Vertibird-using dictatorial military institution that flew around with the stated goal to wipe out all non-humans, who would you be describing? The Brotherhood, or the ''Enclave''?

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul: Ken Kaneki starts out as a kind, gentle young man and an ExtremeDoormat who doesn't like to hurt others. The hardships he suffers as a result of becoming half-Ghoul, along with his [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil ordeal]] at [[TortureTechnician Yamori's]] hands, cause him to become a brutal, ruthless AntiHero with a PayEvilUntoEvil mentality.

* There's a general observation to be made that when people afflicted with BlackAndWhiteInsanity in religion or politics realize that their position has something substantially wrong with it, instead of revising their views to something more sane and moderate, they often conclude "Everything I've ever believed is a lie!", and assume by extension that the "other guys" they've been rabidly opposing must by extension be Absolutely Right, and proceed to overzealously campaign in favor of whatever they see as the opposite of what they'd previously thought.
