* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Alduin is the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse and "firstborn" of Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time and TopGod of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] pantheon. It is Alduin's divine mandate to, at the end of every "kalpa" (cycle of time), "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" so that it can be [[EternalRecurrence remade anew]]. However, during the early part of the current kalpa, Alduin grew proud and forsook his role as World-Eater in favor of [[TakeOverTheWorld conquering the world]] and being [[AGodAmI worshiped as a god]] by mortals. This caused several other [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], most notably his chief lieutenant Paarthurnax, to [[HeelFaceTurn rebel against him]] and ally with mankind. Paarthurnax taught mankind to use the Thu'um, the [[RealityWarper reality warping]] draconic LanguageOfMagic, but this alone was not enough. Three heroes faced Alduin at the top of the Throat of the World, and when all else had failed, used the power of an [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scroll]] to banish Alduin by [[SealedEvilInACan casting him out of the stream of time]]. This defeat was only temporary, and those involved knew that Alduin would one day return. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', Alduin returns and serves as the BigBad for the main quest.

* This trope turns out to be correct, as papers [[https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/07/power-causes-brain-damage/528711/ have revealed]] that power can cause LackOfEmpathy, people to become less risk aware, and can cause more impulsive behaviour. [[CaptainObvious Which we knew from fiction]].

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Fenton Crackshell is obliged to [[EmergencyImpersonation impersonate Scrooge, who has gone missing]], and soon starts acting like a caricature of Scrooge, with all his negative personality traits at full blast and none of the mitigating positive ones, even when he's alone with people who know about the impersonation.

* Enrico Maxwell of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' plunges headlong into this trope upon becoming an Archbishop and receiving full command of a collection of holy knights for the purpose of stopping Millennium's attack on London. With so much military power at his command, Maxwell goes off the deep end and orders his men to kill the Protestants of England as well as the vampires, resulting in a mass slaughter of innocent people that thoroughly disgusts Maxwell's top agent and former mentor, Alexander Anderson.
