* The title artifact in ''Film/TheMask'' and ''Film/SonOfTheMask'' is a partial subversion. It is an item of Loki, god of mischief. So when it takes over the gentle dreamer Stanley Ipkiss, it boosts his confidence and turns him into a mostly-harmless cartoon maniac, who indulges in one act of implied [[DisproportionateRetribution horrifying violence]]. Dorian, however, is bitter and violent, and the Mask only [[CharacterExaggeration magnifies those bad traits to worse]].

The hero character gets some sort of apparel or accessory that [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman seems to be great and useful]], but it's really unstable, or sentient, evil (or at least mischievous in the way {{Muggles}} would consider evil).

* ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'': The black costume that Spider-Man wore for a while is a sentient and aggressive, if not outright evil, [[BondCreature symbiote creature]]. It used to take his body walking and swinging around while he was unconscious, and its aggression in turn made Peter aggressive and darker. For that matter, this is true of most the spider-suit type symbiotes from the Marvel Universe. Venom is kind of an AntiHero (due to the host's morals), but the majority of symbiotes seem to generally bend toward what readers would consider evil.

However, it's been revealed that the symbiotes are ''usually'' pretty nice originally, but they inherit the personality traits of their previous wielders. In other words, "Maniacs Make the Clothes, and then the Clothes Make More Maniacs" (Venom itself originally bonded with a genocidal alien and then latter on ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}, the combination of which drove it insane by the time Spidey got it).

* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', the cursed sword that Arthas finds in Northrend, Frostmourne, is what destroys the last straw of his sanity, leading him to become a Death Knight.

* Most of the rings in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', The One Ring being the most focused on, but most pronounced in the Nine; they turned their owners, once proud kings, into evil ghostly death knights.

** In "Team Homer", the elementary school institutes a uniform policy, and the drab clothes causes the kids to regress in personality so much that that they blink in uniform. Then it turns out that the uniforms aren't colorfast, and during a rainstorm during recess, the clothes become tie-dye, setting off a riot.

* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', Frostmourne, a magic sword, has an effect on Arthas not unlike the effect that The One Ring has on Frodo, Gollum, etc. In fact, Arthas's whole story can be seen as a reverse of King Arthur's, just as ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' is more generally a reverse of The Golden Fleece or The Holy Grail. Right down to the fact that rather than having to PULL the sword from the stone like Arthur does, Arthas basically asks the sword to come out of the ice.
** Though Arthas had leapt off the slippery slope long before he actually takes up the sword. He goes from leaping to... uh... skiing(?) down the slippery slope once he's got it. Then he ran out of slope and started digging himself in even deeper.

** The 80's version is notable as it originated this quality for the suit and it became RetCanon.
