* Jak from ''JakAndDaxter'' goes halfway there by going from WideEyedIdealist to cynic AntiHero with a SuperpoweredEvilSide. While he was not tortured for the sake of torture, he ''was'' subject to two years of Dark Eco experimentation, pumping him full of the stuff, in the Baron's attempts to create a SuperSoldier. Dark Eco tends to have some ''really'' nasty effects on people exposed to it, ranging from insanity to outright killing a person.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', there's the classic case of the Winter Soldier, who suffered about seventy years of repeated MindRape, the ante being upped every time he showed signs of straying from his programming. Also, Natasha, though marginally less severely. In both cases, it was by the Red Room, and in the Winter Soldier's case, latterly by HYDRA as well.
** In the sequel, this happens to [[spoiler: Harry]], also at the hands of the Red Room. Brutal psychic torture and [[spoiler: an escape plan that went wrong]] resulted in the Red Son, the second, upgraded iteration of the Winter Soldier, a LivingWeapon who helped subjugate half a continent. [[spoiler: Harry]] getting control of his body back only made it worse, resulting in his snapping and taking revenge as [[spoiler: the Dark Phoenix]]. And even after he's talked down, coming back to himself, his horrific PTSD means that he's much sharper, more bitter person than before, with a terrifying HairTriggerTemper.



* In ''Fanfic/{{Stray}}'', part of the {{Antihero}}'s backstory involves an attempt by the setting's AncientConspiracy to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this. The AncientConspiracy didn't want to risk their TykeBomb spy/assassins developing any [[ConflictingLoyalty inconvenient attachments]], so they attempted to instill [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] tendencies in their future operatives by means of an abusive upbringing. It doesn't entirely work - Adamska can be ruthless, and he has [[FutureMeScaresMe the potential to be a lot worse]] - but he is capable of genuine emotional attachment.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12629672/1/The-Hands-of-Fate-Invasion The Hands of Fate: Invasion]]'': On Earth-2, Metahumans have been officially declared enemies of the state and stripped of their rights. Those captured are locked up without a trial, rendered sterile (the men through chemical treatments, the women have ''their ovaries removed''), and brutally experimented on. Unsurprisingly, once Zoom frees them they quickly rally to his "cause" and start fighting back against a society that has abused them.

Added DiffLines:

* Mostly averted by ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'''s Principal Nedzu (a mouse who was experimented on for his high intelligence Quirk), but the Final Exam arc is a chance to get a little revenge on humans. Cue Mina and Denki getting the most sound defeat of the entire arc.

* The origin of the recent ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy villain Talonar. [[spoiler:He's actually Nova's missing brother Robbie who remained unaware of the final outcome of TheThanosImperative, outside of "we won." He traveled to Xandar alone to try to jumpstart the Nova Force, but is instead captured and tortured for information by members of the Fraternity of Raptors. They later lock him into a helmet which isolates his senses and severely slows his sense of time making minutes seem like years. This coupled with his lack of knowledge of Richard's supposed death made him feel like his brother and allies abandoned him. When he was given the choice to either die with honor as a member of the Nova Corps or extract revenge as a Raptor, Robbie chose the later.]]

** Partly played straight with [[spoiler:Maiev Shadowsong]] after [[spoiler:her]] capture and torture at the hands of [[spoiler:Illidan Stormrage]]. While [[spoiler:she]] does go crazy and start metting out [[spoiler:her]] own brand of justice, the torture is only the last straw that takes [[spoiler:her]] over the edge of sanity.

** It turns out that after Sargeras killed the [[spoiler:rest of the Titans]], he captured their souls and has spent millennia torturing them in an attempt to create his own [[spoiler:Dark Pantheon]].

* As ''AshesOfThePast'' shows, one way [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Shadow Pokémon]] are created is by torturing them until they break. The process is accelerated by capturing them in a [[Anime/Pokemon4Ever Dark Ball]], [[spoiler: and not even Ash's Pikachu is immune]].
