** The Draconis Combine has long history of mistreating and blackmailing mercenaries under their employ, the Eridani Light Horses and the Wolf's Dragoons suffered this when their depends were held hostages and killed by their employers prompting the units turn on them and leave. The Combine were so appalled on what happened to the former, that the reinforcements sent to deal with the Light Horses simply left when they heard what happened.
** The 21st Centauri Lancers were formerly part of the Cappellan Confederations armies, but when their commander hasn't paided them in 9 months, the unit mutinied and when on to work as mercenaries for the other Successor States except for the Confederation.

* In ''ComicBook/TheTechnopriests'', Panepha spent years mistreating her daughter Onyx because the girl's father was Ulritch the Red, a pirate who had raped Panepha. This comes back to bite her in the ass when she offers Onyx to a mercenary in exchange for aid in tracking down Ulritch for revenge; the merc realizes that Ulritch will pay quite handsomely for the return of his daughter and betrays Panepha. Onyx is only too happy to play along.

* Coop from ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'' is more of an example of StalkerWithACrush and LoveMakesYouEvil, but what ultimately cements his FaceHeelTurn is years of being a ButtMonkey at his crush's hand, followed by said crush having the nerve of saying she had been nice to him.

** Snape became a spy for Dumbledore after Voldemort killed the woman Snape loved, even after Snape begged him not to.

to:

** Severus Snape [[spoiler: defected from the Death Eaters and became a spy for Dumbledore after Voldemort killed ended up killing his childhood love, Lily Evens (now Potter, yes as Harry's mother).]] Granted, it was a bit more complicated; [[spoiler: Voldemort did make some effort in sparing Lily, but she refused to move out the woman way and let Harry die and Snape loved, even joining was also for him being TheAtoner. The only reason Voldemort went after Snape begged him not to.the Potters in the first place was because of a prophecy that ''Snape'' overheard and told Voldemort himself.]]



** A mild FaceHeelTurn version: Percy Weasley is constantly pranked, insulted and mocked by his siblings, particularly his twin brothers, while Harry Potter is quickly welcomed into the Burrow as practically an adopted son. Percy never directly witnesses any of Harry's heroics in the first four books, so it's not that surprising that when he is given a promotion at the Ministry of Magic, a promotion which his father Arthur Weasley flat out says he didn't earn and that his boss only wants to use Percy to spy on the Order, etc, he shuns all contact with his family, determined to prove that he is not the sort of man who blindly follows Dumbledore like all the other Weasleys supposedly do. Unfortunately, Dumbledore turned out to be ''right'', and Arthur probably wasn't far off the mark either. ([[JerkassHasAPoint Even if he was less than tactful about it in the heat of the moment.]])

* ''Film/JamesBond'''s Jaws. In ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'', the BigBad has James and his DamselInDistress tied up and is explaining his master plan, which involves [[ApocalypseHow exterminating everyone on earth]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName who isn't "perfect"]] - [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness including his own less than perfect employees once he no longer needs them]]. Jaws overhears this, and is worried since he is a giant with metal teeth (and it's implied he isn't exactly firing on all eight cylinders intellectually), while his [[MinionShipping girlfriend]] is short, weak, and wearing glasses. So, while on the [[KillSat station]], Jaws helps Bond escape a sticky situation.

* ''Series/{{Justified}}'': Boyd Crowder's total inability to treat his cousin Johnny with any respect is what ultimately turns him into TheStarscream. First Boyd got him crippled. Then he repeatedly sidelined Johnny, taking advice from Ava (his girlfriend who has no criminal experience), Arlo (a senile old man), and Colt (a drug addict) over Johnny. In "Raw Deal", we learn that Boyd stole Johnny's girlfriend in high school, suggesting that Boyd's mistreatment of Johnny goes back years. Johnny's betrayal is ultimately not that surprising, and ends up devastating Boyd's entire organisation.
