* In ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', this is the general consensus for Natalie V. "Envy" Adams, Scott's ex back when he was in university. She was a rather nice girl with otaku tastes and happily dating Scott. However, her success with Scott and Steven Stills' band ''Kid Chameleon'' led to her changing her image to that of a bad girl while steering the bad toward a direction no one wanted to go and possibly even cheating on Scott. It's telling that everyone calls her by her stage-name Envy while Scott remains the only person to call her by Natalie.
** Even taking into account [[spoiler:Scott's unreliable memory, it's clear that her current image isn't well-liked by his friends, especially Wallace, who gets angry when she hears back in town. Ultimately, she stays as Envy though she does get closure with Scott and appreciates he still remembers her as Natalie.]]

However, her success with Scott and Steven Stills' band ''Kid Chameleon'' led to began influencing her. She sold her changing her image to that of a bad girl otaku possessions for more expensive clothing while becoming less invested in her relationship with Scott. It gets worse as the band gets more people and she takes main control over it, steering the bad toward to a direction no one wanted to go where the others (namely the band's founders, Scott and possibly Stephen Stills) were not happy with and there was even suspicion that Envy may have cheating on Scott. This all led to the disasterous breakup, [[spoiler: admittingly started by Scott where he ended in a big fight with her after getting drunk at a party, having no memory of the fight or even getting drunk]] and causing a good deal of heartbreak and emotional damage to Scott. It's telling that everyone calls her by her stage-name Envy while Scott remains the only person to call her by Natalie.
** Even taking into account [[spoiler:Scott's unreliable memory, it's clear that memory]], the general concensus among Scott's friends is they view her current image isn't well-liked by his friends, especially Wallace, as more-or-less a bitch (except for Julie, who gets is attempting to use her newfound popularity and Knives, who was starstruck for a while.) Wallace is the largest example, having met her while in the later developments of her into a bad girl and recommended Scott dumped her immeditately. He was very angry when she hears back in town. to hear her returning.

* In ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers: Bulleteer'', Sally Sonic is a former Golden Age heroine who became evil under the influence of an emotionally-manipulative boyfriend who drugged her up, forced her into doing porn, and later auctioned her off to supervillains. By the time she meets Bulleteer, the only thing that gives her any enjoyment is ruining other people's lives.



* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' has Cersei Lannister, enemy of the Starks and queen of Westeros. Back in her childhood memories (which we get from her [[VillainProtagonist POV chapters]] in the fourth book), Cersei behaved as a nice little lady as she was promised she'd be married to [[TheOneThatGotAway Prince Rhaegar]]. A visit to a fortune teller later told her that she wasn't going to marry the prince, but also that she [[spoiler: was going to have three children, and they would all die before she did, and her eventual death would come at the hands of her own younger brother.]] Also, after leaving the psychic, it's implied that she may have drowned her friend in a well in a desperate attempt to prevent the prophecy from coming true. Cersei's paranoia for the prophecy (combined with not being able to get over Rhaegar) is what turns her into the ManipulativeBitch we know today. Well, that and being raised by [[AbusiveParents Tywin]].
** Notably, Cersei was not much of a 'good' girl even before the visit to the seer. From Jaime and Tyrion's recollections, she was bossy, selfish and cruel from an early age.
** Arya Stark can be seen as this. She went from a young noble girl who didn't want to be a lady to a [[LittleMissBadass little girl]] who has [[BloodKnight killed a lot of men]], despite her very young age. Not to mention [[spoiler: she's now on her way to become a magical assassin of sorts.]]
** Her mother Catelyn completely [[SanitySlippage loses it]] after the death of [[spoiler: Robb (plus, she assumed [[FakingTheDead Arya, Bran and Rickon]] were all dead as well), and after her ''own'' death and resurrection, going on a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge killing spree]] against every Lannister and Frey on her way.]] So far, Sansa seems like the only Stark good girl left.
*** That may not be so, as the fourth book implies that she might have to [[spoiler: kill her cousin [[CreepyChild Robert]], or at least allow him to be killed by Littlefinger.]]

* ''Film/BatmanReturns'': Selina Kyle is usually portrayed as a criminal who grew up on the streets. Here she has a regular job and a home but hates her life and eventually snaps.
** Being pushed out of a window by your boss also helps.
* Both female protagonists in ''BrideWars'' become bad girls after their weddings get booked on the same date. And since, to them, weddings are SeriousBusiness, they each become obsessed with ruining the other one's great day.
* ''Film/CharliesAngels'': The villain in the second movie is [[spoiler: the former agent [[FallenHero Madison Lee]], who was an angel previous to the three protagonists and lost her path after leaving said position.]]
* Averted in ''Film/{{The Bad Seed}}''. Rhoda Penmark was never good; she's been evil literally from birth, and the mystery of why she's evil is part of the creepiness.
