* The Star Sapphire Corps in ''GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' started out as a group of beautiful women dressed in pink who use the PowerOfLove. Except their conception of "Love" is to [[{{Yandere}} imprison their true loves in giant crystals so they won't get hurt by the outside]], and put a MercyKill on people whose true loves are already dead. Fortunately, they get better.

* Cytherea, at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse. As the avatar (or reincarnation or something) of Aphrodite, she has the powers of the goddess of love. Which she uses to manipulate men, get herself out of trouble when she gets caught doing bad things, avoid work, cheat in her classes, etc....which is, of course, entirely true to [[Myth/ClassicalMythology most portrayals of the original Aphrodite as well]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Rose Quartz may have had healing powers, but from Homeworld's perspective, she was one of the greatest criminals in gemkind's history, starting a massive rebellion and as far as everyone knows, killed a Diamond (who are revered as mother/queen/goddess figures by the majority of the population).

* Fran madaraki from ''Manga/FrankenFran'' is an ObliviouslyEvil version of this. She has implausible skills as a surgeon and considers saving lives her first priority. Unfortunately for her patients, she has no idea on what [[FateWorseThanDeath acceptable quality of life means]]. Her sister Veronica [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out on this]] in chapter 14.

* Literature/{{Worm}} uses this along with all the various related tropes to drive home its divorce between powers and the person's moral nature. Probably best seen in [[EnfantTerrible Bonesaw]] of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Slaughterhouse Nine]] who is young, cute and has implausible science powers in seemingly any biological field. She can perform impossible surgeries and even bring the dead back to life if their body is intact, unfortunately she has no apparent sense of morality and her idea of fun and interesting is...[[AndIMustScream ba]][[BodyHorror d]]. Very bad.
** Panacea is terrified that she is doomed to become this despite -or perhaps because of the psychological strain of- her massive healing powers.

** In the Expanded Universe book ''Literature/DarthPlagueis'', it's stated that who those he kept alive were mostly [[spoiler:his test subjects]].

** Perverted talent is rather a big thing among the Forsaken. Mesaana started out as an excellent teacher until she went bad (after being refused some kind of prestigious research appointment), at which point she used her talents to instruct children in acts that make the most fanatic of the Hitler Youth look like amateurs. Ishamael had an unrivalled knowledge of philosophy as it applied to the battle between Light and Dark, and used it extensively after joining the latter. While the ability to access the World of Dreams is used extensively by the Aiel Wise Ones for positive ends, the Forsaken Lanfear and Moghedien prefer to stalk people, give them nightmares, and possibly enslave people's minds... and Ishamael may or may not have used it to destroy some poor sap's soul.

* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'': Van Kleiss has the ability to control the Nanites in all of his home country and most commonly uses them to manipulate the foliage. His debut had him walking across the land with flowers springing up from his FertileFeet. When the charade was dropped he shows all the grotesque killer plants he can unleash when he tries to kill the heroes and eventually displays the ability to mutate people with the control of life and the Nanites that he has.
