* DeltaGreen features a few amongst the more human antagonists. One was once just a guy learning how to play guitar from some random drunkard. A pretty teenager from Ohio. A health food magnate. Dirt encrusted war orphans, one of them missing an arm. All of them viciously insane, completely amoral and enslaved to the will of powerful and dangerous alien entities.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has a sidestory centered on Twenty Gyarados Bill, who is cited as the reason for the six active Pokémon limit. It depicts how he started as a simple crewman in a fishing boat who was always mocked by everyone for being useless, even given a Magikarp as a mock gift, being called as "the Magikarp of humans". Needless to say, [[AnalogyBackfire he took this comparison to heart]] [[MagikarpPower and decided that he would become]] [[TheDreaded the Gyarados of humans]] to get revenge on everyone who laughed at him, becoming the terror of coastal Johto.

* [[Anime/YuGiOh Joey Wheeler]] is shaping into a heroic example of this, at least from Kaiba's perspective. Thanks to his duel with [[VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}} Celeste]], Joey has his hands on one of the most powerful cards in the game [[spoiler:The Wicked Dreadroot]] as well as several other powerful cards from his other duels in Battle City. It makes his spoils of war from canon look positively cute by comparison.

* Tsali the Ultimate Weapon from ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. When he was a child, he was an farm boy of modest origins. Thirty years later - thanks to the [[UpToEleven mother of all]] BreakTheCutie narratives and a tragic DealWithTheDevil - he's a dreaded AxCrazy Chaos Energy-powered battle android who has butchered entire worlds, murdered billions of people (including the vast majority of Cosmo's race), and single-handedly started the Metarex War. And he's still technically ''ten years old''.

* Cute swamp monster Theodora, from roleplaying podcast ''Podcast/DiceFunk'', goes from a bit character in the previous season to a main character in the next one...[[DealWithTheDevil a main character in Faustian service to a God of Abominations.]] By the time the other characters realize that she's NotSoHarmless and sweet, Dora has become the living avatar of a dark god and sacrificed everything she's cared about on that god's altar. [[spoiler:Worse yet, she accomplishes exactly what she'd set out to do, killing dozens and trapping thousands of innocent people in a FateWorseThanDeath inside of [[IronicHell ironic hells]] that they can no longer escape. Ever.]]

* In Fanfic/TheSagesDisciple, Crow is this to the rest of the 4th Holy Grail War participants as he literally appeared out of nowhere, leaving them with nothing to work with aside from what he lets them see. [[spoiler: He and his Servant Caster have really lived up to the nightmare part by disarming Gilgamesh of all of his weapons, a feat that left the King of Heroes catatonic for several hours.]]

* Heather Duke from ''Theatre/{{Heathers}}'' starts out as a BetaBitch consistently silenced by AlphaBitch Heather Chandler, and appeared rather meek compared to the person protagonist Veronica refers to as a "mythic bitch." When describing Heather Duke, Veronica even comments about how she seems to have no discernible personality in comparison to the other Heathers. [[spoiler: However, after Heather Chandler's death, Heather Duke takes over as the new BigBad of the school and is arguably even worse despite lacking the charisma to strike other students with the same feeling of fear that Heather Chandler did. She goes so far as to spread false rumors in order to completely smear Veronica's virtuous reputation, where as Heather Chandler had merely threatened her with social isolation.]]
