* The [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Makuta]] from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' were a group of militaristic biologists who created all animals in the Matoran Universe to preserve natural balance, and were later assigned to govern over various regions of the Universe along with the local leaders. Due to their secretive nature and ElementalPowers of shadow, the society began worshiping [[PhysicalGod Mata Nui]] and the Toa heroes over them, even after their armies had just saved the Universe. Thus, they grew envious, and a glitch in their A.I. caused them to turn evil, with Teridax overthrowing the old Makuta leader and becoming the story's BigBad.

It's a surprisingly detailed story told not only in the flavor text of his own cards, but in illustrations for other cards that otherwise have nothing to do with him. It's only natural that his story gets played out in one of the video games. Said video game had him realising the error of his ways. This almost certainly qualifies him for FaceHeelRevolvingDoor.

* While there are many in ''MagicTheGathering'', the one that stands out the most is Crovax. When the love of his life (an angel) died, he ended up going over to [[BigBad Yawgmoth's]] side to get her back. [[TheCaptain Gerrard Capashen]] [[NotSoDifferent followed for a similar motive]], but realised that it was a con and ended up [[HeroicSacrifice giving his life to take down Yawgmoth]].

** Sephiroth in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Especially evident during ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' and its glimpses of Sephiroth's pre-fall personality -- although cool and aloof, he was actually [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feQQ_OUqbXE a pretty nice guy]] and hero-grade material before the Nibelheim Incident. His ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|FinalFantasy}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqW58sxUyGk opponents]] ''will not stop talking'' about this in their pre-fight quotes, especially in Duodecim. The crazy thing is that Sephiroth will alternate between calling himself one or declaring himself a general destroyer of life. "Taste the blade of a hero.", indeed.

* Jon Irenicus from ''BaldursGate II'' counts. Prior to his exile from [[spoiler:Sulldanesselar]], he was an upstanding citizen and powerful mage. Pride was his downfall; he was exiled and [[spoiler:stripped of his soul]] for using his power to try and achieve godhood.

* Aga Mbadi from ''BattleAngelAlita: Last Order''. He was once a renowned hero around the solar system for hunting down a dangerous terrorist. After [[spoiler: being forced to watch the only woman he ever loved slowly die in his arms and acquiring his insane nemesis's brain chip]], he has turned into a ManipulativeBastard and NietzscheWannabe who considers everyone but himself lower than dirt.

** [[TricksterArchetype Loki]] [[DeadpanSnarker Laufeyson]] (you know, the bad guy in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''), the blood brother of Odin and best friend and GuileHero sidekick of Thor, started off as a light hearted comic relief of sorts, with something of a running gag in the stories of him being threatened with death by the other Gods (sometimes in retaliation for a prank, sometimes because they're just jerks like that), then his attempts to fix everything resulting in him suffering some form of mutilation or humiliation (from having his mouth stitched closed to being raped and impregnated by a giant horse), but he remained loyal to Asgard, but eventually, his humiliations and repeated sufferings, combined with the fact that the Gods didn't particularly care for him that much, made him bitter and resentful, until coming to a head when they imprisoned him on a boulder (chained up by [[KickTheDog his own son's]] [[{{Squick}} entrails]]) with a giant serpent dripping venom into his eyes. Once free of this FateWorseThanDeath, Loki lead the enemies of Asgard against the Aesir, dying in battle against Heimdall, but in doing so, brought about the EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, the [[{{Gottdamerung}} Ragnarok]].

** What about Fulgrim, the Primarch who reached for perfection for his Legion,leading to changing his Legion through [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans altering/mutating of their Genes]] and thus straving off the path of the Emperor, which led to [[DemonicPossession possession]] by an Chaotic Weapon while trying to commit suicide after [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone murdering his brother for the Chaos Gods]]

** What about Then there's Fulgrim, the Primarch who reached for perfection for turned his Legion,leading dying homeworld into a thriving paradise and strove to changing make his Legion through [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans altering/mutating the perfect embodiment of Imperial glory and culture. His corruption came from the Laer, xenos exterminated by his Legion that worshipped Slaanesh and heavily modified their Genes]] bodies for various purposes, from whom Fulgrim obtained a Daemon-possessed sword. Corrupted by the Daemon-sword, the Laer’s practices, and thus straving off the path his fallen brother Horus, Fulgrim chemically and genetically altered his legion towards a more and more twisted ideal of the Emperor, which led to [[DemonicPossession possession]] by an Chaotic Weapon “perfection”, while trying to commit suicide taking up Slaanesh worship, straying from the Emperor’s path. In the end, after killing his brother Ferrus Manus, Fulgrim came to his senses and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone murdering his brother for fell into despair]], which allowed the Chaos Gods]]Daemon-sword to fully possess him, completing the former hero’s fall to Chaos.



** In general, the theme of Chaos is that many think they can control it or they will not fall to it's addiction. Sadly many are horribly wrong. Freedom fighters pray to them to grant their boon, not knowing that they invite mutation and possession into their bodies. Psykers are tempted with control and normality, but instead are commandeered by daemons. Even entire chapters of space marines (most notably the traitor legions and, more recently, the Astral Claws) thought they were doing what was right in defying the Imperium and protecting innocents, only to be branded as heretics and hunted down, ironically forcing them to turn to chaos to survive.
