* In ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld,'' reclusive property mogul Nathaniel Winter is revealed to be secretly motivated by this: having grown up neurotic and frightened of almost everything, he resolved to never be afraid again - namely by seizing power by any means available to him. For a while, being rich and connected was enough - but [[BrokenMasquerade then he discovered the Secret World]], and realized that magic could make him even more powerful than before. Unfortunately, with no innate magical talent, he'd need to study for years to harness the power he desired; impatient to [[IJustWantToBeSpecial become the greatest magus who ever lived]], Winter decided to take a dangerous shortcut and infuse himself with magic via mechanical means. [[spoiler: The means of harvesting and infusion was Atlantic Island Park, and the process transformed him into the Bogeyman]].

* Sebille a (sort-of) former slave in ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'' is trying to remove the last vestige of her slavery, the living scar on her cheek, with which her master can continue to control her. By doing this she knows that she can never be used to hunt her own kind again.

* This trope leads to the tragic ending of ''Anime/Danganronpa3: Despair''. Chiaki's [[LoveInterest friend]] Hajime disappears off the face of the earth, much to her sorrow. Months later, the same thing is about to happen to [[TeamMom Chisa]], so Chiaki panics and makes some [[LeeroyJenkins really crappy decisions]] in an attempt to save her.

** Strangely, the Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, a glacis of subjugated satellite states, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack.

** Strangely, UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} doesn't have much in the way of natural borders to prevent or slow an invasion, as seen when the Golden Horde rolled in from the east back in the Middle Ages, so after that trauma and centuries spent under the Mongol Yoke, its leaders' best defensive strategy was to push Russia's borders as far from Moscow as possible, which naturally led to conflict with Russia's neighbors. Then after the communist revolution, the Nazi invasion during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was so horrific that the now Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, built up a glacis of subjugated satellite states, a devastating nuclear arsenal, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, so large that it contributed to the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack. USSR's collapse, all so it wouldn't have to go through something like that again.

On the other end of the spectrum they may go the nonviolent route and instead [[DrivenToSuicide take their own lives to keep it from continuing.]]

* The central conflict of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is essentially this, with every major character having some aspect of this as their motivation. Pretty much all of the characters' {{Angst}} is caused by characters being unable to connect with other people for fear of being hurt. Shinji and Asuka being in love with but too frightened of each other to try and have a relationship leads to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, that Shinji unleashes because he ''believes'' that no one loves him and everybody would hurt him. [[BiggerBad SEELE's]] end goal is essentially an attempt at this taken to its LogicalExtreme.

** It's also the reason why Imperium hates aliens so much: during the Age of Strife, aliens, who were allies of us, turned on humanity, caused great destruction, enslaved humanity, etc. The Emperor decided that all aliens should be destroyed to make humanity's future safe, and frighteningly, his extremist views aren't very wrong.

* At the beginning of ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'', Kaladin is terrified that if he lets anyone know about his new Surgebinding powers, the lighteyes will take them away from him somehow. He knows perfectly well that that's impossible, but it doesn't really help.



* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Kaladin is paralyzingly afraid that if he lets any lighteyes know about his new Surgebinding powers, they will somehow take them away. [[spoiler:This leads to him breaking his vows [[{{Irony}} and losing his powers]]. He recovers them after he realizes what he did wrong and swears a new Ideal]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', this trope is the origin of [[FutureBadass Dark Danny]]. After losing his parents, sister, best friend, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and teacher]], Danny (with former nemesis and new guardian Vlad's help) sought to remove his human half to get rid of the pain and grief that plagued him. Unfortunately, the process turned his ghost half into a remorseless sociopath, who killed his human half, tore out Vlad's ghost side and absorbed it, and went on a ten-year-long rampage.
