* In season fifteen of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' [[spoiler: Doc]] makes a FaceHeelTurn and joins the Blood Gulch Crew's {{evil counterpart}}s, after years of being treated [[ButtMonkey like crap and ignored]] by the rest of the cast. Though it is implied that [[spoiler: Omega's influence]] is at least partially to blame.

* ''{{VideoGame/Warframe}}'': This seems to be the default end result of ''absolutely everything'' the [[AbusivePrecursors Orokin]] do.[[note]] And given what we've learned, and keep learning, of the Orokin, they ''completely deserved'' what they got.[[/note]]
** Their best and most brilliant minds? If their scientists fail ''once'' they're executed for it. They have a chance to plead for their lives to a panel of their leaders who act as judge, jury, and executioner, but the scientist has to both be very eloquent, and have a backup experimental program to offer as proof they're too valuable to kill. It's implied that even that's usually not enough, and the one successful example we ''do'' know of ''still'' managed to bite the Orokin in the ass.
** Their medics, capable of healing absolutely everything, including potentially old age? Hidden out of sight and regarded as "shameful" if their aid is needed for anything.
** Their cannon fodder non-clone army? "Here's an unarmored spacesuit and a flintlock, you're up against robots with disintegration beams. We don't care or expect you to survive our human-wave tactics."
** Their elite super-soldiers? Turns on them ''and destroys the ruling class'' for their abuse and the torture required to make them into said super-soldiers.
** Their cannon fodder, slightly better-equipped ''clone'' army? Turns on them and wipes out the last remnants of their empire and create a new empire, leading them into conflict with...
** Their mercantile minions? Tired of the threat of executions of whole families if they fail to meet draconian quotas, instead of moving to give aid to the shattered empire, go off on their own to found their own empire by scavenging the tech of their former overlords.
** Their ''[[UpToEleven terraforming drones]]'' sent to a different system? Gain sentience and try to wipe them out (and very nearly succeed), leading to the creation of said super soldiers, armies, and indirectly the Grineer and Corpus empires.
** Their method of immortality? "HarmfulToMinors" is a ''woeful understatement''. Every time the playerbase thinks they've discovered the Orokin's MoralEventHorizon, they somehow manage to ''find a new one to cross''.

* Inverted in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Luke and numerous other demigods turn evil and join the titans because they're sick of their godly parents mistreating and neglecting them all their lives. Leaving their mortal partner to fend for themselves, and outright ''forgetting'' to claim their children after they arrive at camp half-blood. Leaving them wondering who their parent even is. The good guys acknowledge that they've got a point.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', the GenreSavvy BigBad murders one of the minor villains because said minor villain mistreated the people he was intended to rule, and the main villain knows that this could lead to betrayal, which would be inconvenient. The villain himself is more of the AffablyEvil sort.

* [[spoiler: Dawn Bellwether]] in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' ultimately gets fed up with being pushed around, under-appreciated and over-worked by her boss, leading to her [[spoiler:actively working to expose her boss, Mayor Lionheart's covert operation at Cliffside Asylum so he will be arrested and she can take over as Mayor... then continuing to foster a city-wide panic and fear of predators so she will remain in power.]]

* During the infamous InVasion angle, the WWE Wrestlers attacked Wrestling/{{Test}} due to him been seen talking to the Alliance wrestlers, suspecting him to be a traitor. Only to realize he wasn't. However, despite trying to apologize (which he didn't accept), this would lead him to defect to the Alliance.

** Nihilus seems to have [[BadBoss a bad habit of causing this]], because his apprentice, Visas Marr, also turns on him if the Exile treats her nicely (even if s/he [[PetTheDog is otherwise]] [[ALighterShadeOfBlack a rampaging Sith Lord him/herself]]). This is justified because Visas [[MadeASlave didn't join him of her own volition in the first place]], so naturally she would jump at the chance to serve someone else.

Note that in this case 'treats her nicely' mean 'didn't kill her after defeating her.' Serving a Sith Lord lowers your standards.

** In a FaceHeelTurn variation, this is what causes Kreacher to betray Sirius to the Death Eaters: Sirius was justifiably upset at being forced to live in a house he hates with a painting that constantly hurls verbal abuse at him. But Sirius's mistake was that he took out his anger on Kreacher, who was working for the hated Black family but had not actually caused Sirius harm in any way. Well, not caused Sirius harm before the "betrayal" part, anyway.
