--> RACHEL: (narrating) "I know it's wrong," he said. "But it doesn't matter. We have to do it. It's a war. We have to win." I had to laugh. People sometimes think that I'm a bad person, a violent person. But even I know that the words "we have to win" are the first four steps down the road to hell.
* In Literature/SherlockHolmes story "The Man with the Twisted Lip", the resolution is that a respectable journalist first poses as a beggar for the sake of research, then discovers this pays way more than his job (if done artistically enough), then uses begging to get out of a medical debt, and finally abandons journalism altogether, becoming a professional beggar.

---> 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.

** Then, after realising Oracle is an invaluable source of information, he launches an attack on her tower to bring her in alive, but tries to kill Nightwing when he intervenes, prompting Huntress (who had been swayed by his arguments and actually joined him willingly,) to intervene, but Petit and Huntress agree to keep working together.

* This is a common feature through the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', but it's most applicable to ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' and ''TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent''.

to:

* This is The ''TabletopGame/ChroniclesOfDarkness'' game lines all have a common feature KarmaMeter and take place in a CrapsackWorld rife with challenges that can threaten Morality degradation. Moreover, while {{Muggles}} can regain Morality for free through major acts of heroism, any supernatural PlayerCharacter has to spend precious ExperiencePoints from the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', but it's most PointBuildSystem to climb back up the slippery slope -- and they have more ways to lose morality as well. This struggle is especially applicable to ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' and ''TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent''.''TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent'', which emphasize the characters' conflict with their inner, amoral, inhuman natures.

* ''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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
