* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has several examples. Zabuza is the earliest, having killed over a hundred potential graduates of his village despite not having any shinobi training himself. He was made a shinobi as a result and still remembers that event fondly.

* [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Sensui's]] StartOfDarkness was like this: he [[GoMadFromTheRevelation flipped out]] upon learning HumansAreTheRealMonsters, and killed everyone in the Black Black Club's villa.
** Coincidentally, the people he murdered were themselves enjoying a demon blood bath.

villa. Coincidentally, the people he murdered were themselves enjoying a demon blood bath.



** Bonus point #1, minus points for having two separate flip-out incidents before it became a habit.
* Alas, poor [[Anime/GaReiZero Yomi]]... (2, and when she's lost it, 3)



** [[spoiler: Chapter 764 reveals that]] Doflamingo [[spoiler: was, according to his brother, born evil]] ,this makes him a 1, he is also a 2 with only his mother dying of natural causes.
* Tongpu, a.k.a. Mad Pierrot from the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' episode "Pierrot Le Fou."






** The [[Film/{{Halloween 2007}} remake]], however, is a subversion, since it tries to give Michael a FreudianExcuse.
*** Except he just keeps killing as an adult, like a nurse when he was still a teenager, usually with little to no provocation. [[spoiler:The nice security guard at the prison while he was escaping, for instance.]]
*** Rob Zombie has gone on record saying that he didn't intend for this origin to be an "excuse"- Michael doesn't kill people because he's had a bad childhood, he simply kills them because they're evil.



* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Sirius Black killing a bunch of innocent bystanders [[spoiler:is a subversion, as it was Peter Pettigrew who did so and for whom this trope does apply.]]

* ''{{Mistborn}}'' has a rare AntiHero example in Kelsier, who Snapped (i.e. became able to use his superpowers) after seeing his wife beaten to death by her overseers when they were slaves. "Many men had died that night."

* In TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy Battles, one of the named chaos villains used to be a shaman's apprentice, the weaker of two twins, constantly bullied and ridiculed for his weakness. When his prayers attracted attention of Chaos god Tzeentch, he was granted powerful magic as well as a powerful body to match (he was magically grafted on top of his brother's shoulders) His first act was to turn his power against the tribe, making the village "run with molten flesh".
** That's Vilitch the Curseling, in case you're wondering. One rendition of Archaon's backstory relates that after having been driven insane by what he read in the Book of Necrodormu, he then slaughtered his family in cold blood before fleeing to Norsca.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Angron Primarch of the World Eaters. He was once a gladiator slave who along his fellow gladiators fought their way out to freedom against their Nucerian slavers. The Emperor sought him to join his crusade, but Angron refused, choosing to stay and die along side his brethren who are about to be cornered by the Nucerian armies. The Emperor then teleported Angron alone into his ship, leaving his fellow warriors to be slaughtered by the Nucerians. Angron never forgave the Emperor for what he did, when he became Primarch of the World Eaters his legion became the most brutal of them all, when Horus turned to Chaos he was one of the first Primarchs to join him, and soon became a Daemon Prince of Khorne.
** Indeed, when Angron was found by the slave traders who eventually sold him to the gladiatorial arena, he was naked, drenched in gore, and surrounded by the corpses of the Eldar assassination squad he'd butchered in self-defense when they attempted to murder him to pre-empt his falling to Chaos. Did we mention he was just a little boy at the time?
* ''Very common'' angst-oriented origin story for both good and evil Werecreatures in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse''.
** A tradition continued in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken'', which, if anything, enforces the "don't forget that you're playing a monster" thing more harshly than its predecessor. The books make it quite clear that, if you're a Rahu (warriors who changed under the full moon), your First Change most likely involved someone dying horribly.

Itachi (1,2,4 apparently 3 at first), and Sasuke have a shared example in the destruction of the Uchiha clan. Despite being a young teen, Itachi single-handedly wiped out his entire clan aside from Sasuke before going on the run. He stated the purpose was to test his own skill [[spoiler:but it was actually to prevent them launching a coup]]. The trauma of this would later lead to Sasuke turning villain.
**
Hidan (3, probably 2), was annoyed that his village converted to a peacetime economy so he slaughtered his neighbors, potentially including his family, and went missing-nin. His partner Kakuzu was originally a loyal shinobi but after he was punished and now Sasuke (1,2).
