* According to the New York State Police Department, a DownplayedTrope version of this is TruthInTelevision: 1 in 4 schoolyard bullies will get a criminal record for a felony before he turns 30. Not quite supervillain material, but still notable.

* A unique version on ''Series/ThirtyRock'' as Liz had spoken of her memories of being a picked-on nerd in high school. However, when she attends her reunion, she discovers that everyone considered her the bully whose put-downs (which Liz remembers as defensive humor) were vicious insults and she's the most loathed person in her class. She attempts to make things up to them throughout the entire episode, but by this point [[ReformedButRejected they refuse to accept any apology]] and treat her more coldly with each attempt. Eventually, they decide to get revenge by enacting the "Pig's Blood" scene from ''Film/{{Carrie}}'' on her, and while it fails, it makes Liz give up trying to make up for her actions to them; with her instead going back to mistreating and putting them down, only now it's intentionally rather than obliviously.

** Played very straight with Tombstone, who bullied Joe "Robbie" Robertson when they were at school together, and grew up to be a full-fledged supervillain.

* SammoHung used to beat up Creator/JackieChan while they attended the Peking Opera School, Years later, Jackie met him again, the two reconciled, and they teamed up with schoolmate Yuen Biao to become the driving force in Chinese action cinema.
* Happens often in countries with conscription. The bullies have now become [=NCOs=] with system-justified power and licence to do what they will.

* In ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Sorex Vinius, a resident of Solitude, will note that Roggvir, the man who was publicly executed for enabling Ulfric Stormcloak's clean escape after killing High King Torryg, was a bully to said resident when they were kids. Evidently. Roggvir managed to even put a beehive in Sorex's bed. The fact that he continued tormenting Sorex meant that he was glad to see Roggvir get his head chopped off.

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' villain Mr. Sinister is known for his unethical genetic practices and his [[StalkerWithATestTube somewhat disturbing obsession with the Summers family]]. However, few people know his original intended origin: he was a young rival of Cyclops who couldn't age. By the time Cyclops was an adult, Kid Sinister was still stuck as an 8-year-old (physically and mentally), and he used his mutant powers to change his appearance into that of a gaudy, over-the-top supervillain: an 8-year-old's vision of a cool supervillain. When considering that origin, Mr. Sinister's corny appearance, unimpressive name, and stereotypical supervillain demeanor actually make sense. But, ThePowersThatBe decided not to go with that origin... It also explains his minions: The Nasty Boys (a name an 8-year-old would be ''far'' more likely to pick than a mad geneticist) earn their name by being filthy ultra-slobs, living in conditions akin to the ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' version of the Brotherhood. In other words, they never take baths or clean their space -- part of an 8-year-old's idea of perfect freedom. In the canon version, one hast to presume that the Nasty Boys named themselves rather than being named by Sinister, and that he just uses them as minions because it would be no great loss if they get killed.
