* [[MultipleEndings Flay's ending]] in ''VideoGame/{{Mana Khemia|AlchemistsOfAlRevis}}'' gives this a bit of a twist. He wants to become a "Hero of Justice" and drags Vayne along as his sidekick ([[ExtremeDoormat not that it was hard]]), but quickly finds that no one seems to ''need'' one. Vayne points out the [[TheVillainMakesThePlot lack of a viable threat]], which gives Flay the idea to become one. This, in turn, forces Vayne to become TheHero. It's hard to say who created who.

*** Tony's father Howard Stark is GenreSavvy enough to see this trope coming in ''Film/AntMan'' and defy it on the spot. When a furious Hank Pym resigns from SHIELD for ethical reasons, Mitchell Carson wants him detained. Howard nixes it.
---> '''Howard:''' He just kicked your ass, full-size. You really wanna find out what it's like when you can't see him coming? I've known Hank Pym for a long time, he's no security risk. Not unless we make him one.

*** ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' has Tony create the government agency Damage Control to clean up public areas wrecked by superheroes and villains as a way to atone for creating Ultron. [[spoiler:This drives Adrian Toomes out of business and he becomes an arms-dealer in order to turn a profit. He steals most of the parts from Damage Control, which his crew turns into usable weapons.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'':
** ''[[PlayerCharacter You]]'' can be this to the Empire if you choose to size against them in the Civil War. Early on in the game, you are almost executed by Imperial soldiers due to a clerical error. Thanks to [[VillainousRescue Alduin]], you manage to escape. Later, you can join [[LaResistance the Stormcloaks]], and be the driving force behind kicking the Empire out of Skyrim. [[spoiler:You can take this even further if you join the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] as well, because then you can ''murder their Emperor'' as part of their quest line.]] What's scary is the fact that [[spoiler:this double whammy may effectively lead to the collapse of the Empire]]. Moral of the story: '''never''' fuck with the Dragonborn.
** The Stormcloaks can potentially become this to [[spoiler:the Thalmor]] in a blatant case of GoneHorriblyRight. Inciting rebellion in a rival empire to weaken them? Classic geopolitical strategy. But what if these rebels go on to ''win'' the civil war and form a powerful independent state with ([[HornyVikings literally]]) an axe to grind against you? [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Uh oh]].
** Even a victorious Empire is bad news for the Thalmor. Their attempts to eradicate Talos worship directly caused a revival in Talos worship all across Tamriel.
** The Falmer are this, with a bit of LaserGuidedKarma, to the Nords. Thousands of years in the [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls series]] backstory, the ancestors to the Nords once nearly drove the Falmer to extinction, and in their desperation, the surviving Falmer fled to their [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] cousins, who twisted and mutated them into goblin-esque monsters. The Falmer of the 4th era are now growing more bold, venturing above ground to kidnap surface dwellers while their numbers swell beneath ground. They also seem to be regaining some of their lost sentience, forging better weapons and armor from farmed Chaurus chitin and practicing crude alchemy to create poisons from the plentiful mushrooms that grow in their underground lairs. The writer of one in-game book even believes that the Falmer may be planning a war with their surface dwelling adversaries, which would be bad news for the already war-torn Skyrim.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': ''Film/TheLastJedi'' reveals that [[spoiler:Kylo Ren/Ben Solo]] is this for Luke Skywalker. [[spoiler:Luke sensed Snoke and the Dark Side tempting Ben and tried to discern his future while he was sleeping. When he foresaw Ben causing death and destruction, he reflexively grabbed his lightsaber and, for the briefest of moments, seriously considered [[ShootTheDog killing Ben to prevent numerous deaths]]. He almost immediately decided against it, but Ben woke up and [[PoorCommunicationKills only saw his mentor holding a lightsaber, seemingly poised to strike]]. A terrified Ben proceeded to embrace the Dark Side, grab his followers (the Knights of Ren), and destroy Luke's new Jedi Order.]] Luke is rightfully guilt-ridden and miserable over the fact that [[spoiler:a single moment of fear ended up destroying not only his chance at saving Ben/Kylo, but also the first Jedi temple built in decades if not centuries.]]

* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'': Season 3 reveals that Sarah killed the wife of Daniel Shaw years ago as her final exam. After finding this out, Shaw betrays the CIA and joins The Ring to avenge his wife's death leading him to try to drown Sarah (though she was rescued by Chuck) and [[YouKilledMyFather killing Chuck's father]]. Had the CIA not assigned Sarah to kill Shaw's wife for her training, Shaw would have probably remained a member of Team Bartowski making Sarah responsible for his {{Face Heel Turn}}.

** And Shadow ends up doing this again to [[spoiler: Infinite]] in ''VideoGame/SonicForces''. [[spoiler: After being on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle from Shadow, he became determined to surpass his power and prove he's not weak, not helped by the fact his band of mercenaries was also destroyed in the conflict.

** In "The Secret Origine of Denzel Crocker", it is revealed that Timmy himself is responsible for the cause of Mr. Crocker's obsession with fairies [[SetRightWhatWentWrong when he traveled back to the 70s to stop it from happening]]. Back then, Crocker, like Timmy, used to be a happy child who has bullied by his own evil babysitter, Vic (the male counterpart of Vicky), and had fairy godparents (who ironically happened to be Cosmo and Wanda, though neither of them seem to remember this). [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Timmy accidentally reveals the existence of Crocker's fairies]] at a town meeting whilst trying to stop Crocker from doing so. This results in Cosmo and Wanda being taken away and [[LaserGuidedAmnesia everyone having their memories erased]] including Crocker himself (and accidentally, Cosmo and Wanda), leading to Crocker's disfigured appearance and the townspeople mistakenly believing they are an angry mob hunting down Crocker. It gets even worse that Timmy accidentally left behind Mr. Crocker's own [=DNA=] Tracker which he was using to track him down in the past, thus returing it to the past Crocker.
