* ''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.

* ''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.]]

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000:'' The episode ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E15WildWorldOfBatwoman Wild World of Batwoman]]'' also includes the short educational film, "Cheating". 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.]]

* Arcturus Mengsk of ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' started out as a dashing rebel leader who saved you and Jim Raynor from the Confederacy for killing Zerg. The first time he used a psi emitter to summon the Zerg it was a military target and the rebels helped the majority of civilians flee. Then he dumped several on Tarsonis, a planet with a population of two ''billion'', before attacking the Protoss who came to stop the Zerg, using the orbital defenses to stop anybody from fleeing, and abandoning his second-in-command to the Swarm.

Arcturus Mengsk of ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' of started out as a dashing rebel leader who saved you and Jim Raynor from the Confederacy for killing Zerg. The first time he used a psi emitter to summon the Zerg it was a military target and the rebels helped the majority of civilians flee. Then he dumped several on Tarsonis, a planet with a population of two ''billion'', before attacking the Protoss who came to stop the Zerg, using the orbital defenses to stop anybody from fleeing, and abandoning his second-in-command to the Swarm.Swarm ([[spoiler:admittedly, said second-in-command was the assassin who'd murdered his family, setting him down the path of vengeance even though she didn't remember it]]). And it doesn't stop there: while he didn't count on Kerrigan returning from there as the superpowered leader of the Zerg, it leads to him using ever-more desperate measures to kill her:
*** Setting an imprisoned pal of Raynor's free in exchange for her death (even after seeing her restored to human-ish form);
*** Attacking a ship carrying his own son due to Kerrigan being onboard;
*** Relocating the artifact that has a huge anti-Zerg effect (crippling his own army);
*** Working with mad scientists to create Protoss-Zerg hybrids, inadvertantly furthering the local EldritchAbomination's plan to destroy Terrans and Protoss;
*** Blowing up a prison ship (with the crew still onboard) trying to kill Raynor and Kerrigan;
*** And finally, dropping ''nukes'' on his own home PlanetVille once the Zerg make landfall. Note that after his rebellion (caused by his family's murder), Korhal was nuked by a thousand full-strength missiles by the Confederacy, an event so horrific it rendered the planet uninhabitable for years and used as the justification for the SlapOnTheWristNuke (while one Brood War mission had him use nukes on Korhal, it was still radioactive desert then).
