* ''Franchise/StarWars'': In ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', Anakin Skywalker slowly becomes more and more deluded that all opponents of [[BigBad Chancellor Palpatine]] are enemies of the Republic, culminating in him [[InvokedTrope declaring a]] WithUsOrAgainstUs to his former mentor.

Obi-wan retorts by saying "Only Sith deal in absolutes", which might also function as this trope.

** Wrong. He first assures, that in current codex commited crime can be punished by death, otherwise it would be law breaking commited by himself. He just always picks the most severe option.

* [[TheCynic Shijima]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Gou]] from ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' has all Roidmudes classified as pure evil and most of time he is pretty close. Enter Chase, their NobleDemon top hitman. As if that was not bad enough, Gou soon learns that [[MySisterIsOffLimits his sister]] maybe in love with him. He loses a few marbles afterwards.

** [[spoiler:Turns out demons "cursed" him a millennia ago]]. It's not confirmed if that is the main cause of his insanity, but it probably prevented him from getting psychological help.

** To complicate things further, one of the scientists at the organization has a theory about her black and white insanity: she had to develop such a twisted view of the world or she would have awoken much sooner; [[spoiler:the secret to cultivating a strong Awakening involves a contradiction of self hate. Claymores hate Yoma, which are fueled by stress (and human entrails), but Claymores ARE part Yoma. Thus, the more they hate the Yoma and themselves, the more stress they develop, and the more inner power they can possess when they awaken. Priscilla in particular had the perceptive skill to realize that when she killed the Yoma that looked like her father, it actually ''was'' her father, then resorted to cannibalism on her father's corpse to survive (she was quarantined and everyone assumed she was a Yoma who killed her family). From there, she deluded herself into thinking that she was raped by an evil Yoma instead because the truth can basically be summed up as "your father was driven insane and wanted to kill eat you, and then ''you'' killed him and ate him and went insane'' and that is basically stress city]]. Yeesh.

** [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse, the ''true'' BigBad of [[BadFuture Dark World]]]] has this problem. [[spoiler:She has a ''very'' good reason for hating Discord (namely she's the original Dark World Twilight Sparkle who spent a thousand years his brainwashed, murderous {{Dragon}} and he took everything from her), the problem is she's developed the mentality of 'me and everyone associated with me is good, Discord and everything associated with him is irredeemably evil.' This includes ''Dark World itself'', meaning she has absolutely no compulsions about erasing the whole thousand year period and condemning everyone in it to Oblivion as part of her GroundhogDayLoop revenge scheme. She's this to such a degree that by the end, her and Discord's sides on the 'black and white' scale of ''flipped'' without her noticing: Discord has long since realized what a monster he was and would gladly ''stop'' being one, but Eclipse is ''forcing'' him to remain an EvilOverlord so she can keep punishing him over and over again.]]
