* ''Afraid of the Dark'' by ''Music/TheMegas'' is about [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 Shadow Man's]] terror as slowly loses his old personality as his reprogramming takes over. Midway through the song, the darkness actually starts singing to him.

* Light from ''Manga/DeathNote'' goes from dark AntiHero to full VillainProtagonist during the course of the series (going from killing criminals to considering killing lazy people). It's implied that the eponymous ArtifactOfDoom is the [[TheDarkSide cause of this]], not through any supernatural means, but just because [[DrunkWithPower power corrupts]]. This becomes even more apparent during his [[spoiler:MemoryGambit, wherein he temporarily reverts into a much nicer and morally upright individual, as he's no longer carrying the memories of all the people he's killed.]]

* ''Series/HemlockGrove'': Roman slowly becomes more immoral as time goes on. Early episodes where he shows his depravity such as him raping a girl from his school are initially offset by his horrible domestic situation and his perpetual self-loathing. By the end of the series he's become so unhinged that he's simply murdering people left and right, forcing Peter to finally turn against him.

* This trope got a nice lampshading in Kingsley Amis' ''Take A Girl Like You'':
-> This business of why shouldn’t we do this, and we do it, and so then why shouldn’t we do this, and we do that, because it’s only a tiny bit more than the one before, and it would be so nice – it’s leading on and it’s not leading on, it’s like with a bag of sweets, just one more and we’ll put them away, except one more’s only just the one more, isn’t it? And they are nice, so there’s never anything against… Oh, all I mean is people forget things and lose their heads. You know how they do.

** [[spoiler:Can also apply to Subject 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.]]

* ''Series/BreakingBad'': The whole point. Walter White starts as a chemistry teacher who gets cancer, so he begins to make meth as a way to leave money for his family. Then, his actions become not only much less justified, but also he goes on to kill and begins some big schemes.

** 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.
