* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': This is one of the {{Central Theme}}s for Gotham City villians: Except ComicBook/TheJoker and DiabolicalMastermind Ras al Ghul, every villian has HiddenDepths that let him know a life of crime sucks and would attempt redemption. AllThereInTheManual has a lot of examples or RedemptionFailure, and by the time WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond sets in, all of Batman's RoguesGallery has died, said ScrewThisImOuttaHere (Poison Ivy) or even found Redemption (the ventriloquist). Bane and Mr. Freeze's destinies are AndIMustScream, and all the others had been forgotten.

* In ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'', this becomes one of the main themes to be learned by [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron the Horned King]] who has been [[ResurrectedForAJob brought back to life]] and set on a [[ImpossibleTask seemingly impossible mission]]: [[RedemptionQuest earning a human's love despite all his sins]] before 18 months has passed. Otherwise he's doomed to be [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]] inside [[ArtifactOfDoom the Black Cauldron]] ''[[AndIMustScream permanently]]''. As he slowly [[LimaSyndrome becomes attached]] to his prisoner [[PurityPersonified Avalina]], he realizes how his [[Really700HundredYearsOld over a thousand years of existence]] has been wasted by committing evil in his name and that of [[PredecessorVillain his former master Arawn]].

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': Krika realized that he and his Brotherhood have done terrible things, but carried on doing them because he saw himself as doomed anyway, and also partly because he had hoped he could sabotage the plan of his leader by being part of it. All his brethren that had been also opposed to the Brotherhood's corruption were executed.

The character will have to realize is that [[GoodFeelsGood true happiness]] can only be achieved through ThePowerOfLove or the PowerOfFriendship. ''[[EvilIsEasy Anybody]]'' can cross the MoralEventHorizon, but once the character reaches there it [[LonelyAtTheTop looks pretty bleak]]. Nobody wants to be the character's friend because they're all terrified that they will kill them in their sleep (or they already have), they've done nothing to better their position except cause more suffering and generally made the world a worse place to live in. And through it all they've nourished so many bad feelings that not even EvilFeelsGood anymore -- in fact, they don't even ''remember'' what it's like to feel good for a change.

change. If they only switch because being evil is inefficient toward achieving their goal, then they're a MoralPragmatist.

* TheWho's "Behind Blue Eyes," which was intended to be a song for the villain of ''Lifehouse'', the album that became ''Who's Next''.
* [[GetoBoys The Geto Boys']] "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" tells the story of a Gangster who rules his 'hood, makes money, drives fancy cars, is feared and respected...and has been driven Batshit Insane by paranoia: he can't sleep at night, he sees betrayal everywhere, and he's haunted by visions of people he's already killed.

* Superhero team the {{Thunderbolts}} was founded as a front for a group of supervillains to gain the trust of the world's various peace-keeping forces in preparation for a world domination scheme, by changing their identities and pretending to be heroes. At least half the original team members came to realize that they really liked not being feared and hated and decided to give up on world domination and remain good guys.
