* Annie Leonhart of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has shades of this, being a cold and cynical soldier who enlists in the infamously corrupt Military Police Brigade, abandoning her FireForgedFriends without a second thought. [[spoiler: She's also one of the Titan Shifter [[TheMole spies]], and her rampage as the Female Titan leaves scores of veteran soldiers dead]]. She turns out to be a more complicated case, hinted to be a BrokenBird with serious Daddy Issues. [[spoiler: WordOfGod explicitly states she isn't inherently evil, though it's hard to deny that she's a {{Sadist}} that likes to get.....creative with her kills. When Eren and Armin attempt to talk to her, she goes on one final city-smashing rampage before encasing herself in a CrystalPrison, denying the military the chance to learn her secrets.]]

* The series [[LightNovel/YoujoSenki Youjo Senki: The Saga Of Tanya The Evil]] has the titular character [[VillainProtagonist Lt. Tanya Degurechaff]], possibly one of if not the youngest examples of this trope, at only around ''[[ChildSoldiers ten years old]]''. Yet on the battlefields of an alternate version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, she is one of the most powerful and ruthless soldiers you could ever have the misfortune of meeting, even earning herself the nickname ''[[RedBaron The Devil of The Rhine]]''. Tanya is a mage born with an incredibly high amount of power, that makes blasting through entire companies of enemy mages, ground soldiers, planes, and artillery a breeze, not that she won't resort to cutting her enemies open with her bayonet and even ''blowing herself up'' if she has to. She is also an extremely ruthless, brilliant, and [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] leader, willing to get her own men killed simply for annoying her and only pretending to care about her troops or country to further her own personnel gain.

In the film, she's able to keep up and fight on even terms with the rest of the team, despite having no powers, being significantly smaller than most of them, and presumably not having any formal combat training, ''and'' only being armed with a [[RevolversAreJustBetter .357 revolver]], a mallet and a baseball bat.

* Callisto, Xena's EvilCounterpart from ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''. She does pull a HeelFaceTurn later in the show's run, actually. It takes divine intervention, though. It requires Xena -- who, at this point, had died and become an Archangel -- to take on all of Callisto's sins and suffering, thus damning herself to Hell for All Eternity. This removes all of Callisto's memories of being evil, which, not coincidentally, leaves her with more or less no memory of her life after turning twelve.

* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes'': The SecretCharacter known as Shadow Lady is [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]] from an AlternateUniverse where she was [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[UnwillingRoboticisation brainwashed cybernetic minion]] for Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, and in retaliation, Shadaloo kidnapped, experimented and {{cyborg}}ized her for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon top operative]]. Unlike Shadow--a roboticized Charlie Nash, who escaped shortly after being transformed--Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to Shadow Lady's programming and internal systems so the cyborg would [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remain fully obedient and loyal to Bison]], and complete her missions by having her body be remotely controlled, essentially making her a Dark Action RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Chun-Li's formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it]] [[EmotionlessGirl experienced no emotion apart from being a ruthless but highly effective killing machine]] and assassin for Shadaloo - in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind (being more machine than human), and serves as nothing but a weapon against her former allies and Interpol. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chun-Li would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a brainwashed robotic minion wouldn't go away overnight]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this was augmented to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series, thus making her faster and stronger than Shadow, but at the cost of becoming a brainwashed minion for Shadaloo. She shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShields deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. [[spoiler:In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing]], [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]
