* ''Film/CrimsonTide'' is often noted as quite admirably morally complex for a Jerry Bruckheimer film, with Gene Hackman's character given quite a bit of sympathy in wanting to launch the missiles. At least until the ending, when he makes a thinly veiled racist comment to DenzelWashington, which Washington promptly reverses on him.

* Dealt with in a two-issue arc of ''New Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' involving Prodigy, a student at the Xavier Institute with the ability to absorb the knowledge of anyone in the immediate vicinity, but ''only'' as long as they're in the immediate vicinity. When Emma Frost discovers that he's subconsciously put a block in his mind that prevents him from retaining the knowledge permanently, David asks Emma to remove the block, figuring he'll be able to do so much good for the world that way. The story then fast-forwards a few months, and David is already head of his own MegaCorp that has developed cures for cancer and AIDS. How did he achieve this breakthrough? [[spoiler:He killed his friend, the healer Elixir, and harvested his organs]]. Okay, that's certainly bad, but we're still at the point where it can be argued to be worth it. The next issue fast-forwards again, to twenty years later, and David is now the President, and has united most of the world's countries into a utopian OneWorldGovernment. And he's also [[spoiler:planning the genocide of the Chinese because they refused to join]]. Okay, ''now'' he has to die. Fortunately [[spoiler:the whole thing turns out to be an illusion, courtesy of Dani Moonstar, in an effort to convince him to leave the block in]].

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic:'' Retired Wonderbolt Wind Rider cared more about the preservation of his speed record than about the implications of the FrameUp he set up against Rainbow Dash, thus leading to a BrokenPedestal and, even worse, being stripped of everything that came with being a Wonderbolt.

* ''Fanfic/BeAllMySins'' has Natalie, a sweet innocent girl thrust into the grim darkness of the [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 41st Millenium.]] She immediately offers her devotion to Slaanesh in order to live, then has to undertake a human sacrifice to prove her commitment , and from there it's pretty much a head-first dive into drugs, cannibalism, dark rituals and murder.
* ''Fanfic/HarrysMadness'': Harry Potter goes insane in Fifth Year and begins murdering all his real and perceived enemies, turning the DA into his dark legions of global conquest.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheGodfather'': At first Michael Corleone got involved in the MobWar simply because he wanted to protect his father from a rival faction. He tried to get out of it but it was too late, after he actively participated there was no way out. That's why it could still be argued that [[spoiler: ordering all the executions of those rival mobsters was in a way self-defense since they showed clear intent to kill him and it was a matter of who would get whom first. However, sending his assassins to also kill casino owner Moe Greene went clearly beyond that, as he posed no threat to him and only did it because he refused to sell him his casino. This is the part where it becomes obvious that Michael has fully embraced the life of a crime boss and has nothing else to live for.]]

When Johnny cheats on a high school math test, Mike and the bots take it as proof that Johnny is Pure Evil, and attribute all manner of other crimes to him: mob connections, fixing football games, and political rivals leaving town "under mysterious circumstances..."

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'': the first truly evil thing we see Reyes do is get in a fight with Jack Morrison that destroys Overwatch's Swiss [=HQ=] and "kills" them both, all because [[DisproportionateRetribution Reyes was passed over for leadership of Overwatch]]. ''This'' is what leads him to become the terrorist and master assassin Reaper. It's especially jarring given that, from what we see of Reyes in the "Uprising" event and corresponding comic, he's downright amicable if a little unhelpful, but certainly a far cry from the soul-stealing, death-obsessed maniac that is Reaper.

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'': [[spoiler:In ''A Frozen Heart'', a tie-in novel to the movie, once Hans gets his first taste of real power from controlling Arendelle in Elsa's absence, it goes right to his head and clouds his judgment, driving him to start dehumanizing everyone else, manipulate others and be desperate to cling onto power at all costs in order to escape his father's wrath and become king.]]
