* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Luke Skywalker sets up a Jedi academy. One of his [[JediAcademyTrilogy first set of pupils]], Brakiss, intended to be this. He was an Imperial plant with a lot of baggage in his background. Luke ''knew about this'' and thought he could change him - and it looked like it was working, Brakiss was BecomingTheMask. Then, Luke put him through a mental test of himself that went too far and traumatized his pupil, who fled. In ''Literature/TheNewRebellion'', Brakiss largely unwillingly works for Kueller, APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil. Luke still thought he could be saved, and writing from Brakiss's POV suggest that he'd like that, but [[DoomedByCanon it's not to be]]. He dies in Literature/YoungJediKnights.

** Even though the Rise of Cobra version implies this, it's unconclusive. However, the ''GIJoeResolute'' version of Storm Shadow definitely follows the trope.
