* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' follows Alexander Hamilton as he goes from an idealistic, eager revolutionary to bitter, pragmatic politician who is forced to play the game and throw others under the bus in order to save his reputation and gets what he wants. He eventually has a HeelRealization [[spoiler:following the death of his son, who was killed trying to defend his father's honor in a duel]], and is a more sympathetic character for the rest of the show.

* This is pretty much the context for ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePresequel''. Here, Handsome Jack, previous BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', is shown as a small-time Hyperion manager trying to save millions of lives from [[WellIntentionedExtremist Zarpedon]]. At one point he even laments that innocent people are suffering because of Hyperion's war with Dahl's Lost Legion, stating that having problems with Hyperion is one thing, but the people on the moon don't deserve to suffer. The player gets to watch Jack slowly descend into the amoral, self-centered, enormously unethical and downright villainous behavior that we get to see by the time of ''Borderlands 2''.
