* In ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'', leader of the eponymous organization Jalal Stormbringer owns an incredibly powerful [[{{BFG}} magical M16A2 assault rifle]], which he claimed he used [[NoodleIncident against the lord of the Nightmare Court]], killing said villain, but has only used it once "on camera". When asked by Shichiro why he even bothers with his sword, he replies that whenever someone possesses a powerful weapon and becomes too dependent on it, they eventually start thinking they're invincible. He even admits that every time he's had no choice but to use it, he feels a huge rush of power inside him, even thinking that he might as well put a huge "J" in front of his armor. As a result, he always makes sure [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique to lock it away in order to avoid its temptation]], only using it as a last resort.

* Rei Ryghts in ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaV'' fits like a glove. At the start of the game, she's just an IneffectualSympatheticVillain. Once she gets some powers from a floating being named Croire and sent [[TheHero Neptune]] to Ultradimension Gamindustri, she was ''ecstatic'' to say the least. [[spoiler: This is actually a CallBack to what happened with Ultradimension Rei who had a similar situation when she first found her CPU Memory and by luck, she became a goddess. Croire then comes by and with just a little push, Rei becomes the tyrannical ruler of [[UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} the Tari]] nation. [[TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 At least until she destroyed said nation.]]]]

** A similar case also happens to [[spoiler:Kurome Ankokuboshi]] in its sequel, ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII''. [[spoiler:After she receives the aforementioned Rei's CPU Memory from Croire, she proceeds to speed up the fusion between Zerodimension and Hyperdimension. Then, before the FinalBattle ensues, she fuses all of the Dark [=CPUs=] which contain all the powers of the [=CPUs=] she stole into one ultimate Dark [=CPU=], along with her negative energy. As a result, she becomes more powerful, although she loses her calm demeanor and becomes unhinged.]]

** When it turns out Patrick is a descendant pf royalty, he begins taking anything he wants and acting like a tyrannical king. When [=SpongeBob=] lampshades how much of a jerk he's become, Patrick doesn't realize he's right until he sees himself in the mirror and notices that he's literally turning into a monster.



* ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' had that episode where they and the greaser dogs got presumably stuck at sea. They made Cat captain but he becomes increasingly tyrannical. When they find out [[spoiler:[[KarmicTwistEnding they had been in a fountain all that time but couldn't see because of dense fog]]]], Cat had already gone mad.

* A calling card in Wrestling/{{AAA}}. From co founder Wrestling/{{Konnan}}, to company owner Joaquin's son Dorian Roldan down to referee Hijo del Tirantes, there seems to be no one in any authoritative position that isn't susceptible to the trap of unwarranted self importance.

** When Pearl Forrester places him in charge of the Satellite of Love as part of a variation of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_prison_experiment Philip Zimbardo's Stanford prison study]], Tom Servo is gussied up as a Fascist dictator and demanding that Crow and Mike (now done up like downtrodden masses in chains) that they turn over their cookies before he has them torn in half by Sumo wrestlers, before she's even done explaining the nature of the experiment. Given that her version involves having fire ants dumped down his clothes, he should have waited another minute.
