** Graham does, however, subvert the trope in his actual in-game appearance: although he has long since slipped into evil and been reformed, the conflict of his character arc in-game is seeing whether he can ''stay'' on the path of righteousness, or whether his hatred and rage will ultimately drag him right back down the same path again.

** [[Spoiler: Also applies to Delta in Bioshock 2. The "Lamb is watching" refers to Eleanor. And, sure, you do what you need to in order to get to Eleanor... but whatever you do, Eleanor will pick up from there. Harvest little Sisters? Kill NPCs? you watch in first person as Eleanor at the end of the game takes your lessons to heart.]]

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12041991/1/Fade Fade]]'', L gets his hands on a Death Note, containing a part of the story of Kira's rise to power. Trying to stop that from happening leads to L's own StartOfDarkness as he becomes [[NotSoDifferent more and more similar]]—and arguably worse—than the killer he's trying to find.

->''I met her on her first night in costume. She seemed genuinely interested in becoming a hero. I suspected she would go that route on her own, so I didn’t push her towards the Wards. I ran into her two more times after that, and the reports from other events match up. She went further and further with each incident. More violent, more ruthless. Every time I saw it or heard about it, I expected her to get scared off, to change directions, she did the opposite. She only plunged in deeper.''

* Made explicit in CS Lewis's ''Literature/TheScrewtapeLetters'', which is a satirical exploration of Christian theology, detailing a senior demon's advice to his nephew on securing the damnation of a human -- ''the safest road to hell is the gradual one -- the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts''.

* In ''Literature/{{Kenobi}}'', [[spoiler:Orrin Gault]] is eventually revealed to be this. He started by embezzling money from [[spoiler:the Settlers' Call Fund in order to make payments on his debts. When attacks by Tusken Raiders became rarer courtesy of Anakin Skywalker, more and more settlers canceled their subscriptions, so Orrin and his family began staging raids to make them return. They never gave the settlers more than light injuries, but were not above killing actual Sand People in "retaliation". At the climax, he attempts to murder Ben after the latter witnessed them faking a raid and finds out he's a Jedi in the process; even so, Ben lets Orrin go, only for the latter to [[RedemptionRejection refuse to turn around]] and plan to sell Ben's identity to the Galactic Empire. His kids don't fall far from the tree and decide to kill Annileen Calwell, who had been the family's best friend until the day before.]]
