* Interestingly, an alternate future shows Triumph's [[VitriolicBestBuds best friend, the Ray]], becoming one of these, with Triumph himself and the Flash (Bart Allen) as the only two heroes left, trying to keep him under control...[[GoKartingWithBowser while still being best friends and hanging out to watch sports and such.]]

to:

* In ''TheDCU'' series ''Justice League Task Force'', the hero, Triumph, was lost for decades in a time warp, and returned to join the Task Force as its leader. His difficulties in adapting to the new times, added to the desertion of Martian Manhunter and Aquaman from the TF's ranks (which caused the government to close it down due to the ''real'' Justice League returning), ended with him broke and being harassed by common thugs. The inadvertant loss of his soul left him NotHimself and he came under the influence of an evil 5th dimensional imp named Lkz, he wreaked havoc and mentally dominated his former allies into fighting the JLA. When he failed, he was frozen [[AndIMustScream screaming]].

** After [[HeelFaceTurn having his alignment changed]] by the effects of Nirvana, it emerged that Hot-Eye of the Oracion-Seis was one of these. He originally just wanted to raise enough money to fund a search for his lost brother, Wally, but seemed to have gotten corrupted by his team mates somewhere along the line. After all is said and done, he calmly accepts incarceration for his deeds while he was a villain, after finding out that the Fairy Tail guild members had met Wally not too long ago, and declares himself happy with the knowledge that he's alive and well.
** Hades was once a noble SociallyAwkwardHero named Precht, who was best friends with [[BigGood Guild master Mavis]] and was so heroic that he was chosen as her successor of the great wizard guild that would become Fairy Tail. Sadly, he would grow into a FauxAffablyEvil SmugSuper determined to find the DarkMessiah [[GreaterScopeVillain Zeref]] after the death of his beloved friend, becoming a monster in the eyes of his old team members for [[HeWhoFightsMonsters becoming everything he fought against.]]

to:

** Jellal, before his [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]], was a legitimately heroic young boy, being the leader of the child slaves inside the Tower of Heaven and willingly risking his life to save Erza from torture and accepting it in turn. After Ultear corrupted him, he became the very antithesis of his original self, manipulative and self-serving so that he could revive the supposedly-dead [[GreaterScopeVillain Zeref]]. Even worse, Zeref wasn't even dead, so his plan wouldn't have succeeded even if he did win. After he finally breaks his brainwashing, he's horrified to realize what he's done and most of the world sees him as a horrible terrorist.

* About a million alternate future stories depict either Franchise/{{Batman}} or Franchise/{{Superman}} as this, frequently with the other one trying to pull them out of it.

* Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin's character was defined by his drive to become the WWF Champion "at all costs". Usually, this just meant that Austin would theoretically work harder than everyone else to get it. His Face Heel Turn came out of taking that to the logical extreme, where he allied with his perpetual nemesis, VinceMcMahon (and his rival, TripleH, the next night...who tried to ''kill'' him in the past), at the now-famous ''Wrestlemania X-7'', to guarantee he would leave the event as WWF Champion.

* Ethan Bennett was a similar character on ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''. He was an honest cop and a close friend of Bruce until after already under stress due to an argument with Chief Rojas, he became the victim of MindRape by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, and was then exposed to the villain's Joker Putty, turning him into a clay-like monster. The whole experience drove him mad, and turned him into this continuity's version of Clayface, who was more than capable of murder.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'': Katsumi Daido and NEVER as whole. They were originally at least [[AntiHero AntiHeroes]], but the events of [[spoiler: Kamen Rider Double Returns: Eternal caused their fall into madness and villainy.]]
* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[DoctorJerk Taiga Hanaya]]/Kamen Rider Snipe used to be a [[NiceGuy gentle soul]] working for Seito University Hospital before being chosen as the first user of Gamer driver. Everything went downhill from there, making Taiga the self-centered jerk other Doctor riders would come to know. He is aware of how far he had fallen and it pains him, but is still determined to continue on his way. Well, [[CharacterDevelopment with]] minor [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold adjustments]].

* In ''Sinjid'', Warlord Izumi, the second warlord you're tasked with killing, was once a noble war hero who led the Imperial Army to victory. After war broke out with the Shogun, however, [[DirtyCoward he turned against his allies out of fear of losing the war]], and they forced him into hiding before sending you in to finish the job. [[spoiler: Kasumi, the strongest Shinobi unit in the Imperial Army also falls into this category, abandoning her allies after being convinced by [[ManipulativeBastard Kazuro]] to switch sides]].
