* Much like the Superman example below, Goku is viewed as this trope by his fellow Saiyans, especially his brother Raditz, who is horrified to find that his baby brother is living happily among the very beings he was suppose to murder. Vegeta also shows some shades of this with Goku early on, constantly disgusted whenever Goku display human values such as mercy and honor. Both tried to make Goku recover his true nature with Raditz outright failing and Vegeta installing the pride of being a Saiyan although he could never make Goku act as brutal or as cold-hearted as a real Saiyan.

The child isn't so much [[RaisedByWolves raised by a pack of wolves]] or even [[RaisedByNatives natives]] (who while foreign or wild, genuinely love the child), but by their AlwaysChaoticEvil equivalents. Usually the orphan is from an orc raid, and his or her adopted parent(s) took them in out of either a rare display of paternal/maternal instinct, or to spite their human foes by twisting their children into cruel mockeries of themselves. Their life will probably consist of TrainingFromHell coupled with nihilistic life lessons, and [[SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining focus on combat over social interaction]]. They will be taught MightMakesRight, that AsskickingEqualsAuthority, and to worship their GodOfEvil if they have one.

* Princess Aldrif Odinsdottir of Asgard was raised by the Angels of the Tenth Realm, who aren't always chaotic evil per see ''just'' think "Lawful", "Neutral" and "Evil" in any possible combination (their culture is very materialistic and deeply trenched in deals and bartering, so they don't tend to see worth in anything that cannot be assigned a price tag) -- oh yeah, you might know her better as Comicbooks/{{Angela|MarvelComics}}.

* Played with in many ways with the character Tahiri Veila, a Jedi Apprentice (and later Jedi Knight) from the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, particularly the NewJediOrder. She actually ''was'' raised by Tusken Raiders, but this was closer to Raised by Natives since the Tuskens, their outings in the movies notwithstanding, aren't all bad. ''Then'' the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] show up, kidnap Tahiri, and attempt to brainwash her into believing she's one of them (in order to create a Force-using Vong warrior)- so she ends up with two sets of memories, in one of which she was raised by, essentially, space orcs crossed with space dark elves, as one of their own. Further complicating matters, the Vong [[MadScientist Shapers]] tell her that she was one of them captured and raised ''by humans'' before beginning said brainwashing, which considering the Vong see themselves as the good guys and their enemies as AlwaysChaoticEvil, is basically this trope from the opposite perspective.

* In ''Tomorrow The World'', a 1943 problem play by James Gow and Arnaud d'Usseau, a liberal college professor in the midwestern U.S. adopts his twelve-year-old nephew who has been orphaned in NaziGermany. The boy is given to clicking his heels, repeating Nazi propaganda lines such as "To be an American is to be a member of a mongrel race" and declaring that his father was a traitor and a coward. Typical EnfanteTerrible-style mischief ensues.

* [[spoiler:River Song]] from ''Series/DoctorWho'' was raised by the Church of Silence and trained to kill the Doctor. * Helena from ''Series/OrphanBlack'' was raised by the abusive Prolethean cult and trained to hate and kill clones (and misinformed that she wasn't a clone herself). [[spoiler: The Castor clones]] were raised by the military and trained as agents of TheBaroness.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' features a few examples, but one of the standouts is Harmonious Jade, the signature Night Caste. She was raised in a cult devoted to the demon Sondok, and spent her days as an assassin who struck at enemies of the cult. And then she was chosen by the Unconquered Sun to be one of the Solar Exalted. As demons have... ''issues'' with the Unconquered Sun, Jade quickly became a target of the cult.
