* BioWare also had this trope runnning in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire''. [[spoiler:The Emperor has ordered Death's Hand and the Lotus Assassins to hire slavers to raid "insignificant" villages. These villagers are brought to the Lotus Assassin base and killed by some kind of alchemical acid, leaving behind a SoulJar that's used to power the terracotta army they're building]].

* The titular cyborgs from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' are made from the cybernetically modified cloned flesh of the very beings they're used to fight and [[spoiler:the souls of the mothers of the various pilots]]. And they're piloted by forsaken children, themselves, including [[spoiler: a girl who is one of many clones of one of the aforementioned mothers (Rei), alongside that mother's son and the clone girl's sort-of half-brother (Shinji) and the daughter of another woman driven mad by an Eva-related experiment (Asuka)]]
** Meta-example: Several of the crude images flashed up in End of Evangelion were drawn by abused children. Evangelion is itself powered by a forsaken child. It's that kind of show.

* This is why the Seven Deities kidnapped Mithra in ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'', as they need her to power their Mantra Reactor and gather enough Mantra to destroy Gohma Vlitra. The main problem with this plan (other than their callous slaughter of innocents for their Mantra, which they call "purification") is that the process makes poor Mithra suffer ''horribly''. And her father, the title character, is [[PapaWolf about as happy about this shit]] [[UnstoppableRage as you can imagine from the title]].

Can have TheDarkSide effect, as in being willing to [[PowerAtAPrice pay the price]] can make you more evil. May be the result of a [[DealWithTheDevil Deal With The]] ([[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Super-Powerful Alien]]) [[DealWithTheDevil Devil]]. See also BlackMagic and UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans. In those cases it is much of the time a justified example of a MoralEventHorizon since the dark arts require leaving empathy behind to go on.

** Also, the Duel Monsters used in the show are actually the souls of at least several citizens and soldiers from Ancient Egypt during Pharaoh Atem's rule, if not from billions of people in the anime's past. For example, Yugi's signature card, Dark Magician, contains the soul of one of the Pharaoh's most trusted priests while Dark Magician Girl is apparently said priest's apprentice.

* You think that's bad? Try the Devil Gundum from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', where it was created to operate at it's strongest if a being that has the power to create life is its core. In other words, a woman. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for Allenby and Rain, the villains tried to seize and place in the core; when a BrainwashedAndCrazy Allenby was saved by Rain, she was left as the only one within range of the BigBad so he'd use her to engage in the final phase of his plan.
