* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Flashbacks reveal that Ryuuken Ishida used to be a WideEyedIdealist who was under a lot of pressure to protect the future of the Quincies. A [[TraumaCongaLine series of disasters]] occurred that culminated in him suffering an HeroicBSOD. At [[MysteriousPast some point]] between that event and the main storyline, his HeroicBSOD slid over the DespairEventHorizon and he's now very attached to the jade-coloured glasses he wears for all things Quincy. His son, who doesn't know the truth, is extremely frustrated with it.

His son, who doesn't know the truth, is extremely frustrated with it. [[spoiler:Yhwach's method of murdering Quincies creates a blood clot made of Stil Silver. Ryuuken autopsied his own wife to collect the silver in order to forge the only weapon capable of de-powering Yhwach long enough to kill him. Ryuuken's act ensures Yhwach's defeat, but leaves him forever despising his Quincy heritage. Uryuu accidentally witnesses the autopsy, vows to never become something that's forced to cut up his loved ones, and so changes his mind about becoming a doctor. After learning the truth, Uryuu becomes a doctor at his father's hospital, implying that he now understands that his father performed the autopsy because he was a Quincy, not because he was a doctor, and further implying that Uryuu may also have lost his desire to be a Quincy.]]

** And it happens (to an extent) to Wolverine in ''Film/{{Logan}}''. He wasn't much of a wide-eyed idealist to begin with, but he was at least on the side of good and hope. By the time of ''Logan'', he's just a man trying to live out the last of his days in peace until he can [[spoiler:take himself and Xavier onto a boat and [[DrivenToSuicide finally kill himself]]]], and flat-out refuses to believe that their are other mutants left in the world, much less that he has any moral obligation to help them if there are.

* Nessiah ([[spoiler:A.K.A. the grim angel Aries]]) from ''YggdraUnion'' was at first a MessianicArchetype. However, after getting cursed and thrown out of [[CelestialBureaucracy Asgard]] by the corrupt magi, he went insane and started the massive {{plan}} that destroyed countless people's lives in order to exact vengeance on Asgard. When a MessianicArchetype gets broken, the result is not pretty.

* Back when he was a SelfMadeMan in the court of his country, Sonken aka Chuutatsu from ''TheTwelveKingdoms'' witnessed a terrible level of corruption and cruelty. When chosen as the King of Hou, then, the Jade Colored Glasses were so firmly glued to King Chuutatsu's face to that he became an absolute KnightTemplar and his absolute sense of justice caused him to slaughter a large portion of his own population for minor offenses. His zeal was so terrible that the minor noblemen rebelled, ovethrew and killed him, his ''kirin'' and his wife Queen Kekai, leaving his daughter Shoukei as the last survivor.

This is where a WideEyedIdealist is psychologically beaten and broken down until they become more cynical in their views. May involve MoreThanMindControl, the [[ButtMonkey piling on]] [[TheChewToy of various]] [[CosmicPlaything misfortunes]] [[TheWoobie and]] [[TraumaCongaLine traumas]], or simply the fact that GrowingUpSucks, but they end up wearing [[TitleDrop Jade-Colored Glasses]].

* We have this occur in the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series with Reimu and Yukari, the latter of which is a BrokenBird and the former playing the role of TheFatalist. This isn't surprising considering the events of the series and, incidentally, the authoress herself is like this, seeing the world in much the same way that Yukari and Reimu do.
