* Played for humor in ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'': Bertie, in New York City at the time, is essentially blackmailed into looking after Lord Wilmot Pershaw, a young fellow [[MyBelovedSmother chafing under his overbearing mother's thumb]]. Bertie is supposed to keep Wilmot away from all the temptations of the city, things like jazz shows and speakeasies, much to Bertie's annoyance as those are the sorts of things he enjoys going to in New York. So Bertie goes out and leaves Wilmot in his apartment, but of course Wilmot doesn't stay there: he goes and spends all his money at a club and has to be rescued by Jeeves. At the end of it, Mottie is so wasted Jeeves has to carry him over his shoulder out of the cab and up to the apartment. When Wilmot finally comes to hours later, Bertie checks on him, asking what happened. Mottie, who has always been straitjacketed by his mother and never had the opportunity to act out in any way, has this to say:

* This is Sakuya Togane's plan in Anime/PsychoPass: he wants to corrupt the very pure [[TheCutie Akane]] by putting her through horrible situations and trying to make her give up her WideEyedIdealist views. He even [[spoiler:kills her grandmother]] and brags about it in order to get her angry enough to try and kill him. The reason for all of this he wants to make her Crime Coefficient rise to a number that shows she's dangerous enough for him to be allowed to kill her, and he has done this with at least five other people.

* Also, this is part of the premise of the {{Netorare}} and many {{Hentai}}'s doujinshis, and can sometimes be referred to as 'Moral Degeneration' by some avid readers of such material. In fact, it's a recurrent plot in Sanbun Kyoden's doujinshis.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Dragonia}}'', poor naive Feeney gradually sacrifices all of her innocence in order to purify the dragons attacking her homeland, all at the advice of the Dragon Witch, who very clearly does ''not'' have her best interests at heart.

* In the ''Literature/{{Nightrunner}}'' series, Seregil has this as his backstory. [[spoiler: A young man seduced him when he had barely hit puberty, then proceeded to encourage Seregil's boyish wilfullness and mischieveous tendencies, until finally setting him up to be caught while stealing something from a rival clan, thus damaging Seregil's clan's honor and destroying some political ambitions Seregil's father had had. It worked better than planned, because Seregil ended up killing the man who caught him in self defense, which led to Seregil's exile from his home country.]] However, unusually for the trope, this made Seregil only more honorable in his later life [[LovableRogue (at least where it counts)]], and it made him terribly aware of the fine line he has to tread while teaching [[TheIngenue Alec]] thieving and spy-craft. It also keeps him from making any move on Alec when he finds himself attracted to the still-teenage boy.
