* Happens with [[spoiler: Blossom and Buttercup]] in the [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Powerpuff Girls]] fanfic [[FanFic/ImmortalitySyndrome Immortality Syndrome]]. They go from their usual fun-loving selves to [[StrawNihilist Straw Nihilists]] who believe that life is only suffering and therefore it must end.
* ''FanFic/HerInnerDemons'': When the Shadowbolts ask Sci-Twilight why [[spoiler: she transformed into Midnight Sparkle]] she explains that [[TraumaCongaLine the ridicule and abuse]] she endured over the course of the Friendship Games turned her angry and vengeful, to the point where [[spoiler: she sought power to get back at everyone. As Cinch and the Shadowbolts pressured her into releasing the magic, the vengeful part of her mind was easily able to convince her to give into her rage and her desire for revenge, and become Midnight Sparkle]].
* ''FanFic/AnonymoosesMonsterGirlSaga'' has Annie. She was just another sweet little girl living with her mom and dad. Unfortunately, her mother chose to become a succubus and converted her father into an incubus. The monster couple tried turning their own CHILD into a lewd mockery of herself, which is bad enough. Thankfully, she quickly leaves the scene and tries to find the Grand Council. Sadly, things go straight downhill from here. The Council forces Annie to learn spells that can slay even the mightiest of monsters, but beat up her body so much that her blood veins pop and blood gushes out of her eyes. Despite this abuse, she doesn't try to run away because the whole fiasco with her parents has traumatized her to the point where she's just a mindless tool. Laven's naturally disgusted when he meets such a girl.

* Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera: In the original book by Gaston Leroux, long before even meeting Christine, Erik, the titular phantom, [[BackStory did work for the Shah-in-Shah]]: the little sultana, the favorite of the Shah-in-Shah, was boring herself to death. Erik built a HallOfMirrors for her. When she tired of that, Erik transformed it into a RoboticTortureDevice aptly named “the chamber of horrors”, used to [[DrivenToSuicide execute people sentenced to death]]. He also taught her how to strangle people efficiently. The little sultana [[MoralEventHorizon soon applied that knowledge to simple peasants and her own friends]].
--> "Wretched man!" I cried. "Have you forgotten the rosy hours of Mazenderan?"
--> "Yes," he replied, in a sadder tone, "I prefer to forget them. I used to make the little sultana laugh, though!"

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' gives players the option to "harden" ([[IThoughtItMeant not like that!]]) Alistair or Leliana, two of your most idealistic, pure, good-hearted companions, after their personal quests: Alistair is told that "people are selfish and you need to look out for yourself" and Leliana is told that "despite the whole religious thing deep down you're really a killer at heart". The two of them tend to lose less approval over morally dubious acts after that, and Alistair is an interesting case: he becomes more confident at leading and a better king if he's crowned at the Landsmeet and he'll keep the Warden on in a relationship instead of dumping her if she's not a female Human Noble, but [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery it's at the expense of Anora or a future wife and kids]]. It's also the only way to have him stay married to Anora if the Warden recruits the BigBadWannabe.

** Christiane F.'s autobiography ''We Children of Bahnhof Zoo'' (filmed as ''Film/ChristianeF'') is the true story of a young teenage girl who became a prostitute in order to make money to buy heroin. The book made her famous, but she never managed to kick off the habit completely, even contracting hepatitis B from an infected needle. Nowadays, in 2014, the 52 year old woman is still alive, but has publicly announced that she won't make it much longer.

* In many other {{shojo}} and {{josei}} manga/anime (''especially'' in {{josei}}), the [[TheIngenue virginal]] [[NaiveEverygirl and]] [[TheIngenue sweet]] female lead will be paired up with a handsome yet much more cynical male (who can go from merely JerkWithAHeartOfGold to BastardBoyfriend levels). He will tease/mock/insult/etc. her a lot about her innocence, then try drawing her more sensual or adventurous side afloat (sometimes to the extreme).

Sweet, innocent Hinami has become a BrokenBird and high-ranking member of the organization, seen commanding troops during a combat operation whereas she used to hate violence.

The logic behind Orochimaru's mental transformation is rather reasonable considering he lost his parents. Though besides lusting for power, the core to exactly why he went insane is still quite a mystery.
