* The moral corruption of the cutie: They make dabbles and touches towards becoming a {{Badass}}. Only problem is, they are doing it in a manner that is seen as intolerable or [[IDidWhatIHadToDo their method has negative consequences for people around them.]] They will go on about how the other person deserves this type of treatment, and eventually they buy into their moral corruption.

* A particularly odd case of this would be Yamcha of ''Manga/DragonBall'' fame as revisionist history seems to paint him as some kind of womanizer in recent video games and such. Despite being a rather {{Badass}} desert bandit (who rapidly underwent BadassDecay), he was a ShrinkingViolet any time he was near a woman. Early on he got together with Bulma, a ClingyJealousGirl who always accused Yamcha of cheating ''any time another girl even looked at him'' ([[{{Bishonen}} which was admittedly, often]]), despite him not looking back at them. (Eventually, Bulma ended up with Vegeta, with their son Trunks describing the version of events he was told as Yamcha cheating first before she ended up with his father.)

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji, Asuka and Rei were good kids, although they were troubled because of the lack of good parental figures. A servant of ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Tzeentch, Chaos God of Manipulation and Trickery]]'' ran into Shinji when he was four and mentored him and converted to Chaos worship. Shinji turned into a manipulative jerkass and several years later he converted Asuka and Rei to Chaos. Although they are more reasonable and not as bad as other minions of the Chaos Gods, they are assholes at best.

* In a ''slightly'' rarer male version, Will Stronghold has a Corrupt the Cutie sequence in ''Film/SkyHigh''. This being a feel-good family-oriented movie, he gets better.

* In the ''CapcomVsWhatever'' series, [[VideoGame/DarkStalkers Morrigan]] [[HornyDevils Aensland]] has a number of win quotes where she makes comments showing an interest in this trope, paired with DoubleEntendre. However, it's quite expected from her, being a succubus and all.

** The TinaFey movie ''Film/MeanGirls'', starring Creator/LindsayLohan.

Creator/LindsayLohan. Cady arrives in school unsure of how normal teenagers act. She gets sucked into the drama and back-stabbing of 'girl world', and by the time the TitleDrop comes - it's referring to ''her''.
** And especially, ''especially'', ''Film/{{Thirteen}}'' (not that [[Theatre/{{Thirteen}} one]]). The protagonist starts out as a sweet PuritySue and ends as a drug-addicted, sex-crazed pickpocket. Even darker is that this is based on Nikki Reed's own experiences.



* Deconstructed in ''{{Film/Sirens}}''. Tony, an Edwardian minister, believes in preserving a woman's virtue and purity. However this is shown to have a negative effect on his marriage, his wife Estella struggling to live up to such expectations. When she and another girl called Giddy are 'corrupted' by the free-spirited models, it's shown as a sign of positive character growth.

While Dolores actually initiates her first sexual encounter with Humbert, and actually was involved in sexual activities with her (young) friends before, he quickly forces her into a sex-based relationship with him, and by the end, her childhood is ruined.
