* Claudia Donovan in the third season finale of ''{{Warehouse 13}}'' is suffering an acute version of this, being so angry and hurt over [[spoiler: the death of her friend Steve Jinks]] that she lashes out at the Regents and everyone around her, while simultaneously [[spoiler: saving an artifact to try and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong]] against the laws of the organization. Fortunately, things actually start to look up and, if anything, Claudia actually gets a lot more mature for all the effort. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Artie is warned of an unspeakable evil created by his use of the [[ResetButton astrolabe]] to restore the destroyed Warehouse, and acutely fears that this evil may manifest through Claudia]].

* In ''Series/{{TheLibrarians|2014}} and the Curse of Cindy'', the titular Cindy was a sweet girl who was cruelly turned into the resident ButtMonkey on a reality TV show, and was completely unaware that her castmates were using her until after they voted her off the show. Naturally, she didn't take it well, and then a seemingly sympathetic member of the production crew offered her the chance to be adored forever, and all she had to do was help create a missle...

* [[Franchise/{{Rambo}} John Rambo]] is practically the poster boy of this trope, In the first film he is a cynical Vietnam Vet. By the [[Film/RamboIV fourth movie]] he has abandoned civilization and humanity almost entirely.

* Ash in ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series is a sensitive, fairly average man in the [[Film/TheEvilDead1981 first movie]]. Then over the course of a weekend which consists of all of his friends and loved ones [[EvilHand (even his own hand!)]] possessed by ancient demons and MindRape, he's turned into a callous BadAss fountain of one-liners. Though during the adjustment period between the two he's reduced to a gibbering lunatic...

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'', EdgarAllanPoe is shown as a {{Manchild}}, StepfordSmiler and TastesLikeDiabetes Incarnate whose writings were all about {{Sugar Bowl}}s and other cute, fluffy things. However at the end, the main characters openly criticize a pink cake he baked for them, which eventually drove him into becoming... Well, Edgar Allan Poe.

* Jack from ''[[VideoGame/MassEffect2]'' certainly qualifies; when she was just an infant, she was kidnapped from her parents by Cerberus due to her biotic potential. She subsequently spent her entire childhood being tortured and experimented upon in an attempt to make her some sort of Biotic super-weapon until she and the other captives finally rebelled. But even then she didn't catch a break, and basically spent the next few years being used and sold from one person to the next, from pirates to gangs and so on, and causing all sorts of havoc along the way until she was finally captured and locked in cryo on a prison ship. By the time Shepard actually meets her, she is so jaded that the mere concept of someone genuinely wanting to help her for reasons other than their own personal gain is practically foreign to her.

* Seerdomin from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is a gruff loner, not even trying to hide his legacy as a former follower of a cannibalistic holy war and still wearing his old uniform, so that everyone who sees him will immediately understand what he has done.
