* Kratos from GodOfWar can be considered one since he was meant to destroy Olympus. He was raised in the warrior culture of Sparta. He was spared by the war gods of Olympus for use in the future. Eventually, his "training" was taken over first by Ares. After they had a falling out over the incident with Kratos' family Athena took over his training and targeted him toward Ares. Ironically, other events set him back on course to destroying Olympus which may or may not have also been in [[ContinuitySnarl Athena's plans.]]

* Ultraxion of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' was raised being constantly fed the energy of nether drakes, knowing that his sole purpose in existing was to kill the Aspects and bring about the end of Azeroth with his own death.

* [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Arguably]], the [[Franchise/StarWars Skywalker twins]] were set up as a pair of these to take down TheEmpire and the pair of Sith in charge, with Obi-Wan and Yoda using a combination of JediTruth and {{BatmanGambit}}s to set Luke against his father, even dismissing the notion of trying to redeem Vader / Anakin.
** The novelization of ''RevengeOfTheSith'' defies this trope. Obi-Wan and Yoda ultimately decide not to train the two to fight the Sith (seeing how their training failed against the Sith's conspiracy) and left the twins' fate to the will of the Force.

* The title character of {{Hanna}} fits the trope to a tee.
* In Disney/TheLionKing 2, Zira raised Kovu to be this. It didn't exactly work out for her.

* Hakaider, ''{{Kikaider}}'''s EvilCounterpart. This backfires when Hakaider repeatedly [[NotWorthKilling spares Kikaider]], [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou even attacking other]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the week]], so that he could [[BloodKnight eventually fight -- and defeat -- Kikaider at his strongest]], bringing the most meaning to his (Hakaider's) existence.

* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', they have all but said outright that John isn't being trained to be a great leader or a hero or a soldier, but a weapon aimed at Skynet. Which apparently is exactly how [[spoiler:John's own future self]] planned it.

* [[spoiler:Melody Pond]] in ''Series/DoctorWho'', aimed at the Doctor. The good news is that the Doctor realizes this Tykebomb [[spoiler: will become the good guy ''River Song'', whom he's already met at much later points in her timeline]]. The bad news is that [[spoiler: her younger self choosing not to kill him once she gets to know him threatens to ''destroy the universe'' because it's a fixed point in time...but the Doctor has ways around that]].

* ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' had the hero being followed by a young kid with no head. The hero (and the future) is so off the wall nobody is too surprised by the lack of head. The hero throws the kid out a window, wherein he explodes. Turns out it was literally a laser guided tyke bomb, created by one of his many, many enemies.
