* In Franchise/{{Superman}}/Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', alien overlord Mongul appropiated a star-sized weapon-satellite built by a race of warmongers who passed away right after building it. It never occurred to Mongul that both events could be linked and Warworld might bring death to its owner.

* ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'': Dr. Light invokes this trope while calling out Dr. Wily and Dr. Eggman over their plans for the Genesis Wave, reminding them of [[AesopAmnesia all the different times the two villains toyed with forces beyond their control]] and had to be saved by Sonic and Mega Man as a result:
-->'''Dr. Light''': Albert... You thought you had complete control of Ra Moon, Gamma, King, The Stardroids, Roboenza, and Bass? You've toyed with things you cannot handle for years, and Mega Man had to save you from yourself. And from what I've heard, you're no different, Doctor Eggman. Chaos, The Ark, Emerl, The Time Eater? If not for Sonic, you wouldn't have a world to conquer.

* This is advice very necessary to anyone trying to control spirits in ''Literature/TheInheritenceCycle''. While spirits aren't exactly evil, they are very alien, and if you call up spirits and can't control them, then they'll take you over and make you a Shade. This is how Durza, the main villain of the first book, came to be- an apprentice sorcerer summoned powerful spirits to avenge the murder of his master and lost control of them.

** Demon hunters use demonic powers against them, and have to constantly fight back the demons' influence over them. If they fail (as often happens to non-important [=NPCs=]), they either explode or become complete demons themselves.

* In ''Literature/HitherbyDragons'':
-->“This is the work of the Fisher-Price Ultimate line,” says [[http://imago.hitherby.com/2006/02/the-alphabet-game/ the talking learn-the-alphabet game]].
-->The sky swirls and there is an impression of death and sorrow.
-->“In their laboratories they built a child’s toy prototype for ultimate evil—a toddler’s first ultimate evil, as it were. The final product would have had safeties, seals, restrictions.”
-->Susan sees the direction of this speech.
-->“But not,” she says, “the prototype?”

* * In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Jenova was excavated by Shinra and used in genetic experiments to create Super Soldiers. Of course, using a poorly understood CosmicHorror in unethical human experiments turns out really badly. Most of the SOLIDERS (including the top three) go mad and TurnedAgainstTheirMasters. The cumulation of this is Sephiroth whose hatred and will combined with Jenova's destructive instincts and power lead to destruction of [=ShinRa=] and the near destruction of the Planet. [[spoiler:Although Hojo, at least, was so crazy that he probably intended all this to happen from the start; he certainly isn't upset when it happens.]]

The real Dark Genie possesses Flagg and kills him the second his body begins to falter.]]

* As big as the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' is, you ''know'' this trope had to come up somewhere. [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] went and fetched the insane [[spoiler: clone; but [[Literature/OutboundFlight his original]] was just as bad]] Jedi Master Joruus C'baoth off the low-tech world he had been stuck on and ruling in order to get C'baoth to use his Battle Meditation and make Thrawn's forces that much more effective. In return, C'baoth wanted Force-Sensitives, specifically Leia's as-yet-unborn kids. C'baoth had delusions of grandeur, and poor Pellaeon kept telling his boss that having any plans involving someone so unstable was a [[CommanderContrarian very bad idea]]. Thrawn did have plans set up for the inevitable betrayal (up to and including growing a new clone as a replacement), at least, but that point where C'baoth [[spoiler: took control of ''a Star Destroyer'']] was... unnerving.

** Another Hellfire Club member didn't fare much better. Mastermind [[MindRape learned]] TheDogBitesBack when he tried to control [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Dark Phoenix]].
** He actually ''created'' Dark Phoenix. Jean was a bit AntiHero-ish as Phoenix and worried about JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope ''someday,'' but we don't get to ''wiping out solar systems'' until Jason Wyngarde's tampering with her made her dark side fully overcome her control, and suddenly EvilFeelsGood reigns. It's ''all'' his fault.
* The Phoenix Force is the big topic of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''. The Avengers are on this side of the trope thanks to Wolverine while Cyclops believes the Force will bring back mutantkind. When five mutant gain control of the Phoenix Force, the Avengers grab hold of the IdiotBall as they continue to espouse this trope.
