* 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.

* Michael Corleone from ''Film/TheGodfather'' started off as an idealist. He volunteered to fight in WorldWarII and had no intention of becoming involved in the [[TheMafia family business.]] Eventually, events suck him in, but he thinks he can make the family give up the life and go into legitimate business. By the end of Part II, Michael has become a cold, cynical Mob boss.

* Archie Bunker of ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' had a pair of them throughout the whole series (and also in ''Series/ArchieBunkersPlace'') but these got less thick over time. Justified by having lived through TheGreatDepression, having fought in WorldWarTwo and having his thoughts discredited by [[TheSixties the counterculture]].

* A ''lot'' of people in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', but particularly Annie and Ymir, when it comes to selfishness versus selflessness and HeroicSacrifice, respectively. As the series progresses, Armin becomes more and more accepting of [[ShootTheDog doing whatever it takes]] to achieve his goals.

* ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'': Brutaka lost any semblance of optimism after the Great Cataclysm, believing that Mata Nui had abandoned them. This led to him briefly undergoing a FaceHeelTurn during the Voya Nui / Mahri Nui arc. He stopped wearing the glasses when The Order of Mata Nui gave him a chance to redeem himself.

* In ''BaldursGate II'', provided you don't give her a HappilyEverAfter ending as the PlayerCharacter's love interest, Aerie starts on the road towards getting one of these. [[spoiler:In her ending, provided you didn't romance her or left her to ascend to godhood, she slips into [[HeWhoFightsMonsters the abyss]] during the course of a one-woman crusade towards slavery in the Sword Coast.]]

** In ''Literature/{{Allegiance}}'', Mara Jade, as the Emperor's Hand, tended to be sharp-tongued but was overall quite idealistic. She consciously felt that the Emperor was [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter "a good and wise man"]], she believed that the Empire was fundamentally good with some foul elements that could be removed from within, and just in general she had a pretty stable existence. We see in ''Literature/ChoicesOfOne'' that she can't even really imagine being anything else, and finds the sensation of missing someone to be alien. The Emperor's death changed everything - his last command to her was "YOU WILL KILL LUKE SKYWALKER", and it echoed in her head at dangerous intervals, her Force-Sensitivity fluctuated on and off, and she saw the Empire for what it was - fundamentally foul with some good elements, and not ruled by anyone she felt was worthy. In the years after that she bounced between various non-Imperial non-Rebel groups, mostly smugglers, always leaving after her Force-Sensitivity flared up and made her employer uneasy, and although her last employer, [[KnowledgeBroker Talon Karrde]], was by far the best, by TheThrawnTrilogy she was highly cynical. Mara [[MeaningfulName means "bitter"]], and "Jade" fits that (and one of creator Timothy Zahn's dictionaries also listed, as another meaning for Jade, "discarded woman").
