* Zero Day was this for Taiga Hanaya in ''Series/KamenRiderExAid''. He bet everything on saving his patient, failed and lost his position, license and sense of selfworth. He used to be kind soul devoted to his job, but feeling betrayed (and loathing himself more than anyone else could) made him the selfish jerk he is in the main story.

Compare DeathByOriginStory for something that spurred a hero into action, TookALevelInCynic for a character who becomes more cynical but may remain a good person, and FreudianExcuse for pure villains. Also compare HeroicBSOD and DespairEventHorizon for more seriously disabling breaks. Contrast RestoredMyFaithInHumanity, where someone becomes more idealistic through the influence of other people

* All the Manga/{{Claymore}}s share more or less the same DarkAndTroubledPast : family murdered by Youma, exiled from their village, and then are forced to become HalfHumanHybrid. That means that each Claymore has her complex and Cynicism Catalyst. A significant part of the story is about the various way each of them react with that, such as starting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, feeling guilty of being the only survivor, or going KnightTemplar.

* In ''ComicBook/Supergirl2005'' story arc ''Way of the World'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} runs into Aftermath, a villain who used to be a normal person who believed heroes were real and bad things only happened to bad people until ''[[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman the first battle between Superman and Doomsday]]'' cost him his legs.
-->'''Aftermath:''' Once upon a time the world was simple. There were heroes and there were villains and bad things only happened to bad people. And then Doomsday came. "Luckily", I survived the attack, but by then I'd come to realize-- that sometimes the bad can even afflict the good. And that while we may believe in heroes, there really is no such thing.
