** In general, the theme of Chaos is that many think they can control it or they will not fall to its addiction. 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.

Few are the number who can use the powers of Chaos without losing themselves, and fewer still are the ones who don't eventually succumb to the temptation.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' provides several examples:
** Dagoth Ur, [[MadGod deranged]] PhysicalGod BigBad of the main quest, was once Voryn Dagoth, the trusted advisor of ancient Dunmeri hero Lord Indoril Nerevar. After [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent the Dwemer]] disappeared, Nerevar entrusted Dagoth with protecting the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of]] [[GodIsDead Lorkhan]] and the Dwemeri crafted tools needed to tap into its power. Depending on the [[TheRashomon version of events]] that followed, Dagoth was either corrupted by the Heart's power into using the tools, or used them to try to ''[[GodzillaThreshold prevent]]'' Nerevar's other advisors (who were quite likely responsible for Nerevar's death), the Tribunal, from tapping into its power themselves.
** A much more clear example is [[spoiler: Almalexia]] in the ''Tribunal'' expansion. She, like Dagoth, advised Nerevar (her husband), and used the [[PhysicalGod divine powers]] she gained from tapping into the Heart to help the people of Morrowind time and again over the course of several millennia. However, as a result of the player's actions in the main quest of the main game, [[spoiler: she (like the other members of the Tribunal and Dagoth Ur) are permanently cut off from the Heart's power. [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Almalexia does not take the loss of her godhood well]] and becomes the BigBad of the expansion.]]

* The first ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' has King Leoric, who was strong enough to resist being completely possessed by Diablo but was left an insane and murderous wreck by the ordeal. The second game has ''all three of the original game's heroes''; the Warrior was manipulated into becoming Diablo's new host, the Rogue became Blood Raven, and the mage became The Summoner.

*** AlternateCharacterInterpretation states that he would have come to his senses when he died... ''except'' the first person to kill him wasn't his genocidal former friends, or the punky, idealistic ChosenOne, but [[spoiler:Cloud]]. That's right. A pathetic, angsty, cowardly foot soldier, the lowest class of scum in Sephiroth's eyes, was the one to defeat a demigod through sheer force of will. That thought took the last vestiges of humanity in him, his pride as a First Class SOLDIER, and twisted it into something even worse than the EldritchAbomination that he had become.

** Archer, [[spoiler:after his [[MagicallyBindingContract contract with the world]] and [[ArrestedForHeroism later his death]], became a [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Counter Guardian]] whose sole purpose was the [[FinalSolution elimination of all humans within an area deemed a "threat to humanity"]] for all of eternity. Conflicting with his [[ChronicHeroSyndrome ideal]] of wanting to [[SurvivorGuilt save everyone]], this led to him eventually craving [[DeathSeeker his own death]] by [[KillingYourAlternateSelf killing himself in the past]] and being erased from existence due to [[TemporalParadox a paradox]]. ]]

* Ineluki, the Storm King of Creator/TadWilliams' ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'', started out as a hero of the Sitha, but he took his people's racist tendencies to the extreme and, when Asu'a was sacked, he turned from defending his people to killing everyone else. Also an example of MotiveDecay.
