* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker attempts this on Commissioner Gordon in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'' in true dramatic Joker style, complete with a CircusOfFear and an annoyingly catchy showtune. [[spoiler:It fails.]]

** Then we have Amanuma himself which is played completely straight. After middle school, his parents got him into a top middle school in the country, but he didn't think every much of it because he was already such a great student in his elementary school. But when he finally got into the top middle school with other top students, he realized that he wasn't as special as he really thought he was and that there he was just an average student. He tried very hard to catch up with the top students but he was unable to and he hated that. After turning in a student to a teacher for doing something bad he felt that it was the right thing for him to do. However [[spoiler: the students got back at him by burning the word ''pig'' onto his stomach. That experience lead to him dropping out of the top middle school and becoming a {{Hikikomori}} for a while. As a Hikikomori, he started to believe that everyone had a dark and evil side they were hiding and that they just never show their true feelings. This lead to him having a much different outlook on life and when he transfers to Buchi and Taishou's middle school, (in Taishou class, no less)) he pretends to be his friend again only to end up torturing him just like before and even making him into his SexSlave.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/MekkoRarekko'', we have two examples, although one is much more extreme than the other.
** As an elementary student, Amanuma Shinichi felt that he had everything he ever wanted feeling that he was handsome with rich parents and that he was one of, if not the best student in the school. He was also a {{Jerkass}} towards Yamano Taishou, someone who looked up to him greatly for how cool he thought he was. Amanuma then [[spoiler: proceeded to bully as well as torture Taishou a lot in first grade and it got so bad that Taishou had to transfer to a new school.]] Because of that experience Taishou became a bit of a bully himself, but unlike Amanuma, he never went truly evil. So it's a subverted case with Taishou.

* [[TransformersEnergon One incarnation of Megatron]] attempted this on the Autobot Inferno. Megatron tortured Inferno for information and his own amusement. When Inferno still wouldn't break, Megatron tried forcibly converting him to the Decepticon cause. Although Inferno was eventually rescued by the other Autobots it looked like he might turn on them. In the end [[spoiler: Inferno [[SubvertedTrope fought of the effects of Megatron's influence]] and died.]]

** One version claims Loki, the father of the wolf Fenrir, the Midgard Snake, and of Hel, the goddess of the Underworld, was feared for his prophecied role in the coming Final Winter, which is why the gods wanted to imprison him (despite the fact it was also prophecied that he would free himself in time for the final battle).
** Another tale paints Loki as indirectly responsible for the (prophecied) death-by-mistletoe of Baldur, god of light, and the subsequent unsuccessful attempt to resurrect Baldur from the Underworld, which set in motion the events of ''Ragnarök'', the Norse apocalypse.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', while not "evil" per say, [[spoiler: Jason Todd is tortured for a year by the Joker and this eventually turns him to the Arkham Knight. Subverted slightly as he doesn't become a complete villain and still cares about the rest of the Bat Family, but certainly a different take than how he became Red Hood in the comics.]]

* Hama, an old lady the protagonists encounter late in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', was a waterbender in the Southern Water Tribe who through sixty years of attrition, desperation, a cruel prison, lack of access to her element, and discovering a [[PeoplePuppets technique]] that warped her, went from apparently normal and friendly to someone who ''appeared'' friendly but happily abducted and imprisoned random civilians of her torturers' Nation and quickly turned against the nice Water Tribe kids who objected to her.

** In "Heaven Sent", the Doctor is imprisoned in a castle that is really, in his words, a "bespoke torture chamber" in the ''immediate'' wake of [[spoiler: Clara Oswald's Senseless Sacrifice]] in the previous episode, which means his anguish and anger are extremely fresh. Completely alone save for a monster with a TouchOfDeath he can only evade or temporarily halt, he is tormented physically and psychologically all in an effort by his captors to extract information about the Hybrid warrior of a Gallifreyan prophecy from him. Determined not to reveal everything he knows, he winds up [[spoiler: finding another way out by dying and recreating himself billions of times over billions of years]]. He emerges from this as TheUnfettered and a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds ready to [[BatmanGrabAGun grab a gun and use it]] in "Hell Bent", determined to [[spoiler: bring Clara back from death]] by any means, even if the universe is destroyed in the process. While his anguish would make him dangerous in any case, if not for what he undergoes in "Heaven Sent", he probably would not resort to such extreme measures and violations of his principles. The good news is that he stops short of crossing the MoralEventHorizon and chooses to return to his best self by way of setting up the BittersweetEnding.
