** A variation in ''The Deconstruction of Falling Stars'': A 1984-style dystopia is using holographic simulations, endowed with the forms and (initially) the personalities of Sheridan, Delenn, Franklin and Garibaldi, to make a propaganda film discrediting the Interstellar Alliance. Rather than allow the film to be released and tarnish the legacy of his long-deceased friends, the Garibaldi hologram hacks into the system and broadcasts the plan, as well as the location of the secret base where the film's being made, to the enemies of the people making it. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:this starts a NuclearWar, although it was implied to about to start anyway, and Garibaldi made sure the good guys got the first shot]].

* Played with during one of the most known examples is ''ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga''. Jean Grey tapped into a source of infinite power, the Phoenix Force, and became Phoenix. But she got DrunkWithPower later, and turned into Dark Phoenix, a being so insanely powerful that she may destroy complete solar system on a whim. The X-Men fought against her, attempting the IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight. Eventually, the good Jean does emerge, but asking her friends for a MercyKill. Neither Wolverine nor Cyclops could bring themselves to do that, they love her. So she eventually commited suicide.
** Another X-Men example: Karima, under the control of her Sentinel programming, attacks Utopia and is disabled during the fight by Hellion. When she briefly reasserts herself over her programming, she ''begs'' Hellion to kill her to prevent her from attacking everyone again, and he complies.
