* In chapter 5 of ''BaldursGate 2'', a drow priestess summons a powerful demon lord to aid them with their planned assault on the surface elves. The protagonist has the option of tricking the priestess into offering the wrong sacrifice, upon which the demon promptly obliterates her. Her daughter then attempts the same, and again the protagonist can tamper with the sacrifice and have the demon kill her as well.

* As big as the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' is, you ''know'' this trope had to come up somewhere. [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] went and fetched the insane [[spoiler: clone; but [[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.

* In ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', Ken does his HeelFaceTurn after getting a demonstration of what true evil is like. Though his HeelRealization played a big part in that.

* In ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', when creating [[MixAndMatchCritters Kimeramon]], Ken/the Digimon Emperor comes across the remains of Devimon, who warns him that "the powers of darkness cannot be controlled." Ken does dismisses the warning and harvests Devimon's data to use in Kimeramon's creation; sure enough, Devimon's influence soon leads Kimeramon to turn against his HeelFaceTurn after getting a demonstration of what true evil is like. Though his HeelRealization played a big part in that.

** Veran actually pulls this off ''twice''. During the final battle, she genuinely believes she can take control of Fierce Deity Link, only to be proven wrong when Link breaks free of her control and defeats her. Doubly do, since Veran had actually fought the Fierce Deity previously and knew that it could potentially defeat her.

The Sealed Evil in a Can will inevitably turn on the one who freed it -- sometimes sooner, sometimes later. In many cases, it turns out to have no [[EvilCannotComprehendGood understanding of loyalty or gratitude at all]]. Bob may end up being killed on the spot, or he may be [[DemonicPossession enslaved]] by the sealed evil. The sealed evil may make a bargain that it has no intention of honoring (or it may [[FalseReassurance promise Bob he will be rewarded "as he deserves"]]... [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves guess what he deserves?]]). Or it may simply refuse to obey him. If he's ''very'' lucky, Bob may merely be [[DemotedToDragon forced to become the newly-unsealed evil's minion]] on pain of death. In any case, if Bob was the BigBad before, he was really just a LittleBad; the formerly-sealed evil is the true BigBad. In the event that Bob survives, this is a leading cause of EnemyMine twists, since Bob now must seek any allies he can find to deal with the evil that he unleashed. In any case, in order for this trope to work, the one who releases said evil can't be GenreSavvy in any way and must always have GenreBlindness.

* In "Northwest Mansion Mystery", [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Dipper]] averts this. While he ''is'' angry at the Northwests for taking advantage of his willingness to get rid of the ghost and sympathizes with the ghost's desire for revenge, he recognizes that the ghost is unstable and doesn't want to risk letting him out of the mirror he sealed him in while his sister is at the party. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the ghost averts EvilCannotComprehendGood and appeals to Dipper's better nature by asking him to hold the mirror up so he can see the trees one last time before he is exorcised. When Dipper agrees, the ghost heats the mirror up, causing Dipper to drop and break it.]]

* If you play the Dark Side path in ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight]]'', Jerec succeeds in his attempt to turn Kyle to the Dark Side...only to have Kyle immediately try to kill him. Now that he's evil, Kyle doesn't have to hold back or worry about innocent bystanders getting in the way. Though Jerec survives that particular attack with no trouble, and ultimately Kyle kills Jerec no matter which path you choose.
** It's standart trope in ''Franchise/StarWars'' games. You get a "WeCanRuleTogether" proposal and either decline it or reply "ICanRuleAlone".
** In ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Academy]]'', one mission starts with the bad guys releasing an [[TheJuggernaut unstoppable]] mutated rancor into a spaceport with the intention of looting the city after its passing. It immediately starts killing and eating them (while they for some reason try to fight back instead of stepping aside and letting it do its thing).

** In ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Academy]]'', Tavion has it bad. In the Dark Side route it goes the same way Kyle's Dark Side did - you slaughter both Jedi and Sith on your way to Tavion, kill her, claim her artefact and take over the Empire remnant after evading Katarn. In the Light Side, the ghost of Marka Ragnos whom she was trying to resurrect carelessly possesses her and puppets her body as a last ditch effort to fight you off.

one mission starts with the bad guys releasing an [[TheJuggernaut unstoppable]] mutated rancor into a spaceport with the intention of looting the city after its passing. It immediately starts killing and eating them (while they for some reason try to fight back instead of stepping aside and letting it do its thing).

* Sebastian Shaw, foe of the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', helped to develop and secure funding the [[CapeBusters mutant-hunting]] [[GiantMecha Sentinels]], figuring if he builds them instead of someone else, he can instill a RestrainingBolt to keep them from recognizing him as a mutant. This led to the Days of Future Past, a BadFuture where the Sentinels TurnedAgainstTheirMasters and waged a genocidal war on mutants everywhere.
