* Duke Edmun Dragonsbane from ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'' turns out to be this. He initially comes over as a man who has everything he wanted, in the form of fame, power, riches and a beautiful wife. But he is soon revealed to abuse his wife, nearly killing her and is frequently reliving losing his past beloved. [[spoiler: When the PlayerCharacter confronts the titular Dragon, they are given a SadisticChoice. Either sacrifice their beloved, which will make the Dragon leave, giving the PlayerCharacter the fame and fortune as an alleged Dragonslayer, or face the Dragon in combat, which will almost certainly result in death.]] It turns out the duke experienced the ultimatum and chose the former, resulting in him being mad with guilt. This point is hammered in further, because making the former choice yourself shows you[[spoiler: the PlayerCharacter having replaced Edmun Dragonsbane as duke, but living a lonely and maddening existence.]]

** Though inverted in that he blasts Walton's crew for not having the balls to carry on on Walton's journey. Victor might represent what Walton could become, but unlike other examples he doesn't realize this, or regard it as a bad thing. He blames the Creature for all his ills but doesn't take responsibility for the hell he put the Creature through ForScience.

* In the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' trilogy, Darth Vader represents what would become of Luke if he turned to the Dark Side. This is made most clear when Luke battles an apparition of Vader on Dagobah which turns out to have his face. Later on, Luke nearly kills Vader, but stops himself when he realizes that [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim he is just one step away from becoming the next Vader]]. The Emperor helpfully points this out just to make sure Luke is [[{{Anvilicious}} absolutely clear]] on what choice he would be making.

* The plot of the DCComics' comedy miniseries ''A. Bizarro''. Al Bizarro, duplicated not from ComicBook/{{Superman}}, but from a [=LexCorp=] employee called Albert Beezer, initially thinks he should try to be like Beezer, but at the end of the first issue, Beezer tells Bizarro that his life sucks and in order to be happy Bizarro should "do the exact opposite of everything I did!" (a MythologyGag on the pre-Crisis Bizarro Code).

* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Sabertooth to Wolverine]]. During the arc following Wolverine's full recovery of his memory, he has a flashback to one of his earliest encounters with his evil rival. In an uncharacteristically intellectual moment, Sabertooth tells him (in latin) "I am what you you will become". In this case it's not a warning ''or'' encouragement, it's a prediction; Sabertooth believes Wolverine will eventually give in to his animal side (instead of fighting it) and become just like him: a savage, remorseless killer who delights in indulging his violent instincts. This is basically one of Wolverine's greatest fears and Sabertooth just ''loves'' taunting him with it.

* Done in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', of course. Worth mentioning because A) they give Jacob a brother, Robert, so they can give the role of Marley to both StatlerAndWaldorf, which allows them to B) sing a cool little song about it all. And C) [[StealthPun you get "Bob Marley"]]. (''Groan'')
