* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': The Vampire Michaela light novel series reveals that Crowley was once a member of Knights Templar who fought in the 13th century Crusades, but the gruesome wars that were hypocritically waged in the name of God and his eventual transformation into a vampire destroyed any faith he had in God and led to him committing increasingly atrocious acts.

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series has a justified example-general [[TheHedonist hedonist]] and ManipulativeBitch Graendal was once one of the most faithful and diligent aesthetics in the world before her fall...except she was also a complete ControlFreak and egomaniac, who did her turn when she realized she couldn't force the world to be like her. Her new persona is basically a spiteful commentary on her disgust for the world. Justified, of course, in that she fell from grace primarily because of her pride and inability to admit the world had problems she couldn't fix. Losing her faith was just a manifestation of it.

* OlderThanFeudalism: [[Literature/TheBible The Book of Job]] subverts this trope. {{Satan}} posits that Job is only a good, religious man because he is prosperous, and that if he suffered, would curse God. Satan attempts to test this theory-messengers arrive informing him that all of his livestock were stolen or killed, as well as his servants and children. When that isn't enough, Satan afflicts Job with illness. Job refuses to curse God, despite urging to do so by his wife and his friends-though he does finally break down and ask God "why?" God sharply rebukes Job and his friends, but rewards him for his faith by doubling his family and possessions.

* Kirei Kotomine of ''LightNovel/FateZero'' had known for many years that he was [[TheSociopath inclined by his nature to evil]] but chose to adhere to the tenants of the Church. Due to the influence of Gilgamesh during the Fourth War he began a descent into villainy, [[LateArrivalSpoiler ending with him laughing happily as he witnessed a fire kill five hundred people]].

* Played straight in 2nd Chronicles of the Bible, however, when after Jehoiada the priest's death, King Joash of Judah turned away from following God and had Jehoiada's son killed for prophesying against him, eventually leading to his own death.

Obviously, in RealLife, it takes a hell of a lot more than a loss of faith to just drive people to do evil. Done poorly, this can be an outright StrawmanPolitical character to show that religion is supposed to be the sole moral compass for people.

* Averted (or perhaps inverted) with Father Dougal of ''FatherTed''. While Dougal often makes comments which would perfectly fit this kind of character (e.g. something like "Todd, we're not really supposed to believe in that Jesus stuff, are we?"), he is TheDitz and presented as a [[DumbIsGood better person]] than the more faithful Ted.

* At least one ComicBook/{{Chick Tract|s}} does this, possibly a few more. Act surprised.
** The most perplexing (and [[{{Narm}} unintentionally hilarious]]) example would have to be the one where a child grows up to become evil...because he found out ''there was no Santa Claus''.
** A lot of [[http://fstdt.com/ FSTDT]] quotes feature people who fear having a crisis of faith because they believe this will happen.

* Xenovia from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' once she learns that [[GodIsDead God died]] during the last war between the angels, [[FallenAngel fallen angels]], and demons. She falls into desperation and turns to Rias for help, who turns her into a devil. Once turned, she attempts to redirect her former faith towards worldly desire (which mostly involves attempting to have sex with Issei), but her inherent piety often wins over, with her constantly praying and thanking God for good things happening, which due to her newfound devilhood, results in giving her sharp migraines.
