* 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. Both the "[[AGodAmI Time Lord Victorious]]" and [[spoiler: the [[{{UnPerson}} War Doctor]]]] are examples of what happens when he broke that promise.

* In the ''VideoGame/BioShock'' series, genetic engineering allows people to gain fancy superpowers. But most of them eventually become [[BodyHorror hideously deformed]] [[SanitySlippage homicidal maniacs]].

** In addition, this world has Subject Zero, a former U.S. Army soldier who became the first test subject of Project Superman, and had his powers augmented to the point of NighInvulnerability. Due to him becoming increasingly unstable, he was locked down in the facility for twenty years and, when he broke out, he went on a rampage to prove himself as a hero. He is only stopped by Subject One - a.k.a. [[spoiler:Kal-El]].

Whoops.
* ''[[Franchise/DragonBall]]'' has brave, selfless martial artists like Goku. It also has Frieza and his evil family, supremely powerful mutants who use their power to run an interstellar crime syndicate and slaughter billions of innocent people, and the gene-optimized murderer Cell that doesn't even bother trying to empathize with those he consumes to become stronger or, later, tortures and kills for no reason other than his amusement.

* A recurring problem in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. [[BigApplesauce New York City]] in particular has been the epicenter for superhuman events from ComicBook/{{Galactus}} trying to devour the planet (on more than one occasion), [[ComicBook/{{Inferno}} demonic invasions]] and seemingly endless battles between superheroes and villains (or sometimes just between superheroes and other superheroes), aliens, the occasional giant monster of undefined origin and one instance where a Herald of the above-mentioned Galactus levitated Manhattan Island into orbit. ComicBook/{{Magneto}} once blasted the entire planet with an EMP, has raised volcanoes on a whim and moved his giant space station around to anywhere he wants it. [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] has left trails of destruction across America countless times. A prominent head of state goes by the name ''SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom''. The U.S. government has scary giant, purple robots flying around to "protect" the public from mutants. That any sane person does not live in a state of abject terror over all of this requires incredible powers of denial, a fact which has been lampshaded on many occasions.

* ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'' kind of invokes this; most superheroes are media-attention-craving {{jerkass}}es and most supervillains seem to be SilverAge in their antics. However, there is a strong [[MugglePower anti-superhuman]] sentiment because of the attitudes of the "Capes", good and evil, and this is a very ''dangerous'' attitude to hold. The heroes won't normally try anything against an anti-Capeist, but if pushed, they ''will'' push back. One oft-talked about background incident is San Antonio, where an anti-Cape conspiracy actually [[BullyingADragon went on a Cape-killing spree]]. Capes from ''both'' sides of the ethical divide promptly retaliated; we don't know all the details, but we do know that even heroes didn't hesitate to kill the conspiracy members, and somehow it ended with the capes destroying the whole city by '''breaking the Earth's crust with an alien superweapon''', an event officially explained away as a mysterious erupting volcano. We know of exactly one surviving anti-Cape from that day: Empowered's boyfriend, [=ThugBoy=].

** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' appears to end in a manner which puts the world into such a setting. Up until the Cuban Missile Crisis, mutantkind was an unnoticed breed, but then the whole thing is blown wide open due to Magneto's actions against the fleets of ships at the climax. However, ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' reveals that the US government had kept the mutants' involvement a secret from the public.
