* The thing that kicks off [[spoiler:Eas/Setsuna's]] HeelFaceTurn in ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' is when she realizes this. Her life was cold, gray, impersonal, and she's been repeatedly asked to put herself in great pain and shorten her lifespan for fights she loses anyways. And all her infiltration of the heroines has accomplished is give her a taste of their happy lives.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic ''Fanfic/LePapillonRising'', Adrien Agreste is a supervillain known as Papillon. Adrien's akumas tend to get out of control and mess up his life. It's been implied that he'd actually rather die than hurt Marinette, but his ignorance causes him to terrorize her on a daily basis instead. He often goes without sleep, and can't sort out his love life at all, thanks to competition from himself.

** Ironically, for a series that often puts BeingGoodSucks at the forefront, this is more or less how their universe works. All good people get to go to Heaven when they die, and spend eternity reliving the best moments of their lives. Likewise the standards of what is classed good is quite lenient. Despite not caring for man, the Angels refuse to sell or barrater the souls of heaven, as it's their Creator's will that this be their fate. While all the evil people go to hell, and are tortured till they become demons. Monsters who rip people apart in life, go to Purgatory and spend eternity ripping each other apart and all the other species just vanish upon death.
* On ''Series/TeenWolf'' Chris Argent the Hunter is really feeling the bite of this. His sister abandoned the Hunter's Code and committed the mass-murder of a non-hostile family of werewolves and humans, which led to her death in the end. His father ordered the abandonment of the Code and this led to increasingly psychopathic behavior all around. When his wife was [[LaserGuidedKarma bitten by an alpha]] while trying to murder her daughter's teenage werewolf boyfriend she is obligated by hunter rules, and Gerard's insistence, to commit suicide before she turned into a werewolf. Her mother's death pushes Allison over the edge, and she goes on a psychotic rampage. Then, the real kicker, Gerard, who has been encouraging all this crazy, reveals that he is dying of cancer and that his plan along along has been to use the Hunters to help him capture the alpha so that can receive the bite and become a werewolf to survive the disease, making it fully-clear that he knows he will have to kill his son to do it. Needless to say, Chris finds himself stuck on-side with the werewolves because of how the evil in his family has led to loss and suffering for him and his daughter.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': [[spoiler: Towards the end of Volume 5. Sylar realizes his evil life will leave him alone and unloved, so he went forth to do good and hoped to be forgiven. The judicious application of a MindRape taking the form of a FateWorseThanDeath by Matt Parkman helped, as well.]]

* In ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', Fauna says of the antagonist Maleficent: "Maleficent doesn't know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don't think she's really very happy."

* Played for laughs with the ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' strip [[http://dilbert.com/strip/2009-04-18 seen here]] where [[CardCarryingVillain Catbert]] is depressed because being evil doesn't mean anything anymore. "These days I can cut salaries by ten percent, and people will thank me for not firing them!" (The strip was posted in 2009, during America's last economic slump, so it makes sense.)

While the character may enjoy themselves for a little while, the consequences will eventually [[LaserGuidedKarma come back to haunt them]] in unpleasant ways. [[KickTheMoralityPet Kicking the morality pet]] has the unfortunate side effect of making the character [[BadDreams lose sleep at night]] or [[OutDamnedSpot consuming them with guilt]] over the horrible things they've done, or [[RegretfulTraitor deeply regretting having betrayed their friends]]. Characters letting their [[TheDarkSide anger rule them]] will find it fun and easy until they [[KickTheMoralityPet kick the wrong dog]] in their bloodlust. There's also the likely chance that the character will [[ComesGreatInsanity go mad]], which really isn't as cool as it sounds when [[SanityHasAdvantages they're in a straitjacket.]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', the move Frustration invokes this (though it's more "Being Evil is Impractical"). It grows stronger the more the user hates its Trainer, but it's considerably easier to make them happier (simply walking around will do it) while methods of making them dislike you are rather limited. What's more, many Pokémon start off with a neutral affection towards the player, and the move's inverted counterpart, Return (which grows in power the more the user likes its Trainer), is far easier to use, [[UselessUsefulSpell making Frustration not worth the effort]].
