* ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosOrigins'' reveals that Geldoblame was this prior to becoming the [[BigBad sadistic megalomaniac]] he was by the time ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos'' rolls around, albeit for somewhat shallow reasons. Initially he was a genuinely good man, if a little too unhealthily obsessed with Quaestor Verus (to the point of HoYay), and [[spoiler:learning that Verus was the true BigBad, a genuine CompleteMonster who was only using him, was too much for him. [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope Que a beautiful cackling swan-dive off the slippery slope]].]]

* Many of the demon hordes from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' were mortals who were hunted by KnightTemplar angels for nor being sufficiently Good, who in turn said ThenLetMeBeEvil and made [[DealWithTheDevil bargains]] with the Dark Powers to gain the power to fight back.

* VideoGame/MystIIIExile has Saveedro, who's entire homeworld was apparently destroyed and who now wants to force the man he blames to see what happened, so he steals a book from him. When he finds out the player isn't the person he's looking for, [[spoiler:he kills you if he gets the opportunity]].

* Fou-lu in ''BreathOfFire IV''. [[spoiler: He is a PhysicalGod who is also the KingInTheMountain for the country he founded as a GodEmperor (after being summoned there by a VestigialEmpire--who buggered up the summoning leading to aforementioned PhysicalGod developing a LiteralSplitPersonality that ends up displaced 600 years in the future). Unfortunately, said empire has become TheEmpire over six hundred years of hibernation, TheEmperor doesn't want to give up his seat, one of TheEmperor's main assistants is MadScientist [[KarmaHoudini Yuna]] who convinces him he can kill a ''god'', and this ends up in increasingly more extreme methods by TheEmpire to kill Fou-lu (eventually culminating in the use of a FantasticNuke which runs on nightmares and created the the ColdBloodedTorture and HumanSacrifice of people with very close connections to the target...with Fou-lu's ''girlfriend'' used as the [[HumanResources Thermonuclear Country Girl]] because aforementioned FantasticNuke ''also'' works on the principle of LoveHurts). This cascading Pain Train [[BreakTheCutie Breaks The Cutie]] to the point Fou-lu ends up a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.]]

* Isair and Madae, the {{Big Bad}}s of ''IcewindDale II''. While their origins -- half-demon half-elves shunned and misunderstood or manipulated by everyone, whose mother committed suicide when she first saw them -- are undeniably tragic, it's very clear they've crossed the line into choosing villainy at the point the Legion of the Chimera started burning and looting the Ten Towns.

* {{Spider-Man}} is loaded with these: The Lizard is another example, as long as you don't count that time where they implied that Conners was in control the whole time (neither the [[FanonDisContinuity fandom]] or [[CanonDisContinuity writers]] do, however). Norman Osborn has gone so far as to feign that [[BlatantLies this is the cause for all his crimes]].

** Rumplestiltskin was one of the main villains of the series. He committed many terrible crimes and screwed people over, but the reason he became the Dark One in the first place was to save his son. His son would have been forcefully recruited to fight a losing war against ogres on his fourteenth birthday (the reason kids were fighting is because so many people were killed that they were running low on troops). He was manipulated into becoming the Dark One by the previous one, who was tired of doing the job himself. The power was implied to be corrupting Rumplestiltskin.

Never mind the fact that Baelfire left Rumplestiltskin ''because'' he became the Dark One (or more accurately, because he grew too fond of the power given to him by the Dark One's Dagger).

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', TheDragon Redcloak's race (goblins) was, at least according to his god, created for the sole purpose of being slaughtered for easy XP by the [[FiveRaces PC races]]. In his StartOfDarkness prequel, KnightTemplar good guys destroyed his home, nonchalantly killing noncombatants such as children and old folks, including his entire family except for one of his brothers. So when a vision from his god showed him how he could potentially make the lives of his people better, he took it, despite it having the risk of undoing creation if it fails. As author Rich Burlew says:
-->''Some people choose evil, and some are driven to it by what life has forced them to endure. [[BigBad Xykon]] is not one of these. [[WellIntentionedExtremist Redcloak]], however, might be.''
