* Whole bunch of them in ''RuleOfRose'', though all have their own FreudianExcuse, and you will end up feeling more pity than loathing for them by the end. [[spoiler:Wendy tops all the others by making the others kill Jennifer's dog, and then setting a serial killer loose on the orphanage. [[LoveMakesYouEvil All because Jennifer didn't love her alone.]]]]
* [[spoiler:Clive]] in ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture'', who lost his parents in [[spoiler:a time machine explosion]] 10 years ago, and schemed to take vengeance on the people responsible with the money he inherited from his adoptive mother.
* In ''MissionCritical'', you find TheMole's secret diary, where he explains his reasons for betraying TheAlliance to the [[UnitedNationsIsASuperPower UN]]. His parents were scientists. He and his brother were visiting them at work one day, and a [[GreyGoo batch of nanites]] programmed to clean up oil spills was accidentally let loose, and his parents (or rather, all oils in their bodies) were eaten from inside out right in front of them. From that moment, he decided that the UN was right in limiting technological development.

* The antagonist of ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/TheAvengers'', Loki, had this trope forced on him, seeing as he was lied to his entire life about his parentage. He didn't become evil until he found out he was adopted.

* Alexander on ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' is an infant clone of LexLuthor. Tess Mercer hoped that by raising him to be good, she could save him from the Luthor legacy. Unfortunately, Alexander has all of Lex's memories, and is aging very rapidly to boot. As of "Luthor" he's gone AWOL, and is out there, somewhere, plotting revenge on her and Clark. [[spoiler:Eventually inverted, since he ended up losing these memories and becoming ComicBook/{{Superboy}}.]]

* ''{{CSI}}'' has the very [[CreepyChild Creepy]] and InsufferableGenius Hannah, whose parents have died ([[FridgeHorror the details are never explained]]) by her second appearance. [[spoiler: In her first appearance she gets her brother off a murder charge (albeit an accidental one). In her second she frames him and [[DrivenToSuicide Drives Him To Suicide]] to keep him dependent on her]]. She also {{Breaking Speech}}es Sara, possibly contributing to her decision to [[PutOnABus go on a vacation to the rainforest]].
