** Another specific example in the second edition is in the description of the Charm "Lawgiver's Parable Defense," which allows a Solar to pre-emptively find signs of a crime to be committed against their loved ones. "... a growing number of Solars have stopped using this Charm, suspecting some defect in its design—surely Lawgiver’s Parable Defense must be in error when it points to the Solars themselves as the threats that menace the things they love."

* Though the trope's name instantly makes you think of him, Franchise/{{Superman}} thankfully [[AvertedTrope averts this trope]]. Unless it's an ''{{Elseworld}}s'' story which has this trope as its point, Superman is ([[SuperDickery almost]]) always as responsible as he can be with his powers and always lets people know that he's here to serve them, not the other way around. But again, as mentioned, ''Elseworlds'' stories LOVE to play with Superman this way. Most recently, Alternate!Superman in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', who's a totalitarian ruler after the death of Alternate!Lois Lane.

* In Franchise/StarWars, especially the ExpandedUniverse this is the reason why falling to the DarkSide is so terrible. Even a single one of the weakest of Dark Jedi and Sith are powerful enough to kill small armies singlehandedly, while some of the most powerful can [[ApocalypseHow KILL ENTIRE PLANETS,]] as well as raise armies out of similar minded individuals. Just one Force User going DarkSide is enough to cause Galaxy wide chaos.
** Even Jedi who haven't turned to the Darkside can often get this treatment from [[DependingOnTheWriter certain writers.]]

galaxy-wide chaos. And to make things worse, the Dark Side is addictive. Even if a Jedi slips into it by accident, it takes incredible willpower to turn back and avoid becoming a monster.

** ''In Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', the massive destruction wrought by Zod and Clark's fight leads to widespread distrust of Superman from everyone, including Bruce Wayne, who was present in Metropolis as he saw many of his employees die. This is also Lex Luthor's reason for opposing Superman, alongside what seems to be a [[RageAgainstTheHeavens hatred of Godlike figures]].

* On ''Series/{{Supergirl}}'' exposure ot Red Kryptonite makes Kara engage in her base desires, attacking people and acting a terror that has to be subdued. She's overcome with remorse as the people of National City now fear her.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', it's revealed in "The Name of the Doctor" that the title of "The Doctor" is his self-imposed promise ''never'' to succumb to this type of behaviour. His turns as the "[[AGodAmI Time Lord Victorious]]" in "The Waters of Mars", [[spoiler: the [[{{UnPerson}} War Doctor]]]] of "The Name of the Doctor" and the 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor", and [[spoiler: the apocalyptic "Hybrid"]] in "Hell Bent" are examples of what happens when he breaks that promise, though in all cases he is brought back to his best self.

## Raghor, a SuperSoldier of a different breed (created in lab from Evronian DNA hybridized with that of the 'beasts of Ranghar'), who, like Trauma, commits various insubordinations and outright mutiny. But where Trauma was implied doing what he believed best for Evron, Rahor plans the genocide of the baseline Evrons and their replacement with the supposedly superior hybrids. Most of the hybrids are subdued when their imprisoned handlers break out from prison and activate a device that enforce their obedience ([[GenreSavvy they had installed it after the initial mutiny]], and failed to use it before being imprisoned only because caught by surprise), while Raghor escapes execution only because a pissed [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] gets him first;
## ''Another'' super soldier, this time a cyborg, who committed unspecified crimes. Showing that the Evronians were GenreSavvy enough to expect this, they immediately subdued him by ''activating his off switch'' and shipping him to The Well;

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', Gosalyn accidentally traveled to a BadFuture where DW, not realizing she was in the time machine, suffered a breakdown over her disappearance which resulted in him becoming Dark''warrior'' Duck, a dictator who punished people harshly for the smallest of "offenses" such as eating too much junk food. Even though he didn't have super powers, he was still pretty [[BadassNormal scary]], even being more [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy savvy]] than he was before his dark transformation. Also, he had a [[TankGoodness tank]] and an [[MechaMooks army of robots]], which helped.

Superman and Zatanna restore him to normality.
