** And again in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'': [[spoiler:Elizabeth was raised to lead Columbia and eventually wage war on the surface world below. Luckily, Booker rescues her ''very'' early in her indoctrination, and so it's only when she's recaptured and tortured for years that she breaks and becomes the ruler Comstock wants her to be. And then she undoes it by sending Booker back in time to save her before it happens.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack2017'', the cadre of assassins known as the [[AmazonBrigade Daughters of Aku]] were born and raised for exactly one purpose -- hunt down and kill Jack. It's {{Deconstructed|Trope}}, however, as this means that they have no social skills or understanding of the world outside their training whatsoever. Since they were also always told to kill Jack and trained relentlessly for agility and physical strength, they also have no teamwork--when together, they all fight like as if they're alone, allowing Jack to use their attacks against each other and even use one Daughter to conceal an attack meant for another.

* In Robert Silverberg's ''Literature/TheAlienYears'', a man is given the responsibility of raising a child to be able to kill the mind-reading aliens who have enslaved the planet. He trains the child to be able to kill anything without a second thought so that the aliens would not be forewarned of his intentions by reading his mind. It doesn't work. That's why the man also raised his own son to ''love'' the aliens, so he could kill them without betraying his intentions.



** Don't forget John's other love interest from the future.

They were raised to compete with each other constantly and serve as L's successor, but [[GenghisGambit ultimately forced to work together to bring down Light]], all according to L's contingency plan.
