The result is that he almost becomes a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.

* Sugilite of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is a fusion of Garnet and Amethyst, so the end result is incredibly powerful... and completely out of control, as she has Garnet's pride and Amethyst's wild nature. Nevertheless, she is still a fusion of two Gems who deeply care about Steven himself, so she's surprisingly rather chill with him.

* Tatara Tostuka in ''Anime/{{K}}'' is this for the Red King, Mikoto Suoh. He is killed just before the start of season 1, sending Mikoto and the rest of his Clansmen on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge. The problem? If Mikoto overextends his power, his SwordOfDamocles will fall and devastate a large area around him, as the previous Red King's did. ''He doesn't care.'' [[spoiler: He also doesn't care that the only alternative is for his FoeYay love interest, the Blue King, Reisi Munakata, to ''slay him personally'', which is what happens. And that his clan will be without a leader after he dies]].

* In the ''Literature/LogansRun'' books, Logan is a hardened killer with ''barely'' a conscience to speak of. He actually goes on the run on his Lastday in order [[LastDance to achieve the glory of finding Sanctuary and destroying it]], dying as the greatest Sandman ever. He (at first) dupes Jessica so that she'll be his UnwittingPawn. But Jess impresses him by having more bravery and will to live than anyone he's seen, and [[InLoveWithTheMark falls for]] [[LoveRedeems her instead]], eventually converting to her cause and defecting. When Jess isn't around to rein him in, he does revert back to an unpleasant AntiHero.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5725656/1/Fates_Favourite]]'' Harry serves as this for teenage Tom Riddle. Because he considers Harry to be his equal and his best friend (despite having that pesky moral code) and does not want to make him too upset.

* Nunnally in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is Lelouch's Morality Chain. Lelouch's main motivation comes from terrorists assassinating his mother and crippling his sister, which led his father (the emperor) to abandon Lelouch and Nunnally. Because of this, he's motivated to avenge his mother, destroy his father's empire, and build a gentler world where his sister can be happy. Even with Nunnally alive, Lelouch already skirts the edges of ByronicHero...
** [[spoiler: When Lelouch's own actions indirectly caused the loss of his MoralityChain, Lelouch vowed to personally drag his father to Hell with him. When he found her again, she had learned his motives. [[WhatTheHellHero And she did NOT like being the]] Morality Chain]].
*** Nunnally didn't even realise that she was the Morality Chain. [[spoiler:She just thought he was downright evil for killing Euphemia, and who knows who else, thanks to Schneizel's interpretation of events... and Lelouch's own preventions against his (correct) interpretation of [[KillEmAll Schneizel's character.]]]]
*** [[spoiler: Lelouch wasn't completely out of it until the Black Knights' sudden betrayal pushed him entirely past the DespairEventHorizon. And the "drag his father to Hell" bit was just a bit of a fancy TakingYouWithMe proclamation.]]

* It's implied in ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Phantom Blood]]'' that Dio Brando's mother was this to him, as his flashbacks to his abusive childhood particularly emphasize his father Dario's mistreatment of her, to the point of her death. Given this, one can assume that Dio's intense ambition and twisted nature came from his mother's death at the hands of Dario's abuse.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}},'' Casca is this to Guts. Being Guts's lover [[GoMadFromTheRevelation driven insane]] by the actions of Griffith and the Godhand during the Eclipse, she is the only reason why he refuses to completely give into his SuperPoweredEvilSide. Said evil side, a {{Hellhound}} like beast, is fully aware of this and constantly importunes Guts to kill her so it can take over his mind and turn him into a being of pure hatred. The Beast is literally chained thanks to Gut's devotion to Casca, though it promises Guts that it will be free one day.
