* ''The Scorpion Signal'', an espionage novel by [[Creator/EllestonTrevor Adam Hall]]. The protagonist Literature/{{Quiller}} is sent to track down a RogueAgent who was tortured by the KGB, and nearly gets killed because he fails to consider just how much torture can change a man. Like making him willing to kill a former friend [[spoiler:when he interferes in his plot to assassinate the Soviet Premier.]]

* Played with in ''LightNovel/DateALive''. For a Spirit to [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Inverse]], they must experience absolute despair. Westcott believes in using torture to achieve this. He proposes doing this to Tohka, though it's rendered moot when Shidou is seemingly killed in front of her and she Inverses anyway. When he did this successfully to Nia, she didn't Inverse and simply stopped responding to anything. Westcott therefore decided to apply a block on her memories of being tortured and then released her. As it turns out, Nia had lost faith in humanity prior to being captured and tortured (due to her omniscience letting her see all the ugly parts of humans), but she regains it after being freed. After this happens, Westcott orders the memory block be removed. The sudden return of all of the memories of suffering, combined with her new positive outlook, succeeds in making her Inverse.

*SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong]].
**''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' gives us Aksum, an angaara who was once a brilliant and curious student of Remnant technology, until the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Kett]] kidnapped him, tortured him and held him in a labor camp for over a year. This turned him into an AbsoluteXenophobe who hates even friendly aliens like the Milky Way species. He forms a terrorist group called Roekarr which attempts multiple times to inflict a genocide on all non angaara. He crosses the MoralEventHorizon in the eyes of many angaara, including his former best friend Jaal when he starts ranting about even eliminating angaara who arenít xenophobic - and then tries to kill Jaal.

* In ''Film/Frankenstein1970'', it is strongly implied that is the torture he received at the hands of the Nazis that tipped Victor over the edge into obsession and insanity

* Shockingly enough for a {{Creator/Disney}} [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids cartoon series ostensibly aimed at kids]], ''TronUprising'' goes here in "Scars." While Tron's torture at the hands of Dyson didn't ''completely'' turn him to the dark side, it's coming pretty close [[spoiler: And probably helps Clu [[ReforgedIntoAMinion twist him into "Rinzler" later]] ]] - to the point where he tries to ''kill'' Beck for intervening in his RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
