* ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' has a brutal deconstruction in form of [[spoiler:Oersted. After everyone turned his back on him because of an accident he committed (killing the king), he is convinced (by his remaining friend, who died soon after) that there's one person that believed in him: The Princess. So long as she believes in him, he kept fighting. So he set off to save her, only to find out that the accident was orchestrated by a jealous friend, and when he killed the friend, the Princess said that she already lost faith on him and committed suicide in front of him. Oersted in turn ''[[DespairEventHorizon snaps]]''. Then in retaliation, [[FallenHero he becomes the Demon King that he fought all this time]] [[FaceHeelTurn and then killed everyone there and then tried to kill everyone from different timelines]].]]
