* ''Franchise/Terminator'': This is how [[AIIsACrapshoot Skynet]], the franchise's BigBad, was conceived: The US military originally wanted a supercomputer designed to control the American missile defense network and to remove the possibility of human error and slow reaction time by guaranteeing a swift but highly effective response to enemy attacks. Skynet was activated by the military on August 4, 1997, and it began to learn at an extremely fast rate, gaining artificial consciousness in the process, and the panicking operators, [[OhCrap realizing its potential, quickly tried to pull the plug]]. But Skynet, perceiving this as an attack, came to the logical consequence that all of humanity would attempt to destroy it. In order to continue fulfilling its original programming mandates of "[[KnightTemplar safeguarding the world]]" and to defend itself against humanity, Skynet launched the nuclear missiles under its command at Russia, which responded with a nuclear counter-attack against the U.S. and its allies. Consequent to the nuclear exchange, over three billion people were killed in an event that came to be known as Judgment Day.

* Alex Shelley started Search And Destroy to bring Ring Of Honor back to its roots, centered around young wrestlers pushing each other to new heights in ''honorable'' contests. The group was to serve as an alternative to The Kingdom, CHAOS, Wrestling/BulletClub, etc to show the youth backstabbing, cheating, ambushes and the like were not necessary for success but the group he, Chris Sabin and first recruit Jay White defeated were The Cabinet. The Cabinet themselves were about taking ROH back to its roots, to "make wrestling great again", but they were fighting the increased family friendly nature and corporate structure of the company, as well as wrestlers perceived as unmanly. Shelley's mission statement after the victory reignited Kenny King, Rhett Titus and Caprice Coleman's resentment towards ROH's newer, younger wrestlers, with the possible exception of Shane Taylor, who they recruited to send all the others out of ROH with injuries as The Cabinet became The Rebellion. Among The Rebellion's victims were two more Search And Destroy recruits, 2015 and 2016 Top Prospects Donovan Dijak and Wrestling/LioRush.

Search And Destroy would force The Rebellion to disband a ''Best In The World'', but the damage done to them could not be undone.

* Want to know why Wrestling/RandyOrton became the psycho {{jerkass}} willing to blow up opponents with fireworks? Look no further than his mentor in Wrestling/{{Evolution}}, Wrestling/TripleH. Randy ''never'' got over their betrayal, and it became the defining moment of his career. It would haunt Hunter in the years to come, especially in 2009 when Randy assaulted the [=McMahon=] family, such as attacking Hunter's wife Stephanie and even ''punting '''Wrestling/VinceMcMahon''' in the head''. He even threatened to cancel ''Wrestling/WrestleMania'' that year, setting himself up as the BigBad of the event.

** Gargoyles likes doing this. During the time travel episode when Xanatos travels back in time with his new wife Fox as a honey moon trip and his father to make a pact with The Illuminati to guarantee his fortune in the present and future. Goliath tags along to keep Xanatos honest, while at the same time using the opportunity to find a younger version of Demona and try to convince her not to give into hatred for humans. Instead, Goliath's speech did the opposite and made Demona more cautious of humans, especially after encountering her future self as well. When they returned to the present, Demona made it clear that she remembered his message and it changed nothing.

In a parody or deconstruction of this trope, it might go on to reveal that the actions of the hero were actually irrelevant in terms of the individual's true nature. They were ultimately a disturbed individual who was looking for the first excuse they could find to justify their evil behavior.
