* 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]].

* ''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.
