* ''The Alchymist's Cat'', a prequel to the ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, reveals the origins of BigBad Jupiter. He started out as an ordinary kitten called Leech in 17th century London, the runt of the litter who was mistreated by the evil alchemist who took them in. His brother Jupiter, on the other hand, was adored and became the alchemist's familiar. Leech grew envious of his brother's growing powers, and wished he could learn magic too, only to find out that just one in every family is allowed to use it. In the end, Leech kills Jupiter and assumes his identity.

* The ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' supervillain Judge Death has his origin given in "Young Death -- Boyhood of a Superfiend". This shows (with some incredibly black humour) how a nasty and psychopathic child develops into a monster that wipes out his whole world. (Although, to be fair, the reoffending rate is to all intents and purposes negligible.) Darkness hardly begins to describe it....

Darkness hardly begins to describe it....it... it's one of those rare origin stories that serves to completely '''de'''humanize a villain as opposed to adding a layer of tragedy. Death was always evil, even before he willingly threw away the last of his humanity.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'': After Light realizes what he posses, he decides that he enjoys having the power to kill those he views as evil. He even jumps the gun and starts his GodComplex after he finally meets Ryuk and tells him about his intentions.



* Just like how the canon ''Manga/DeathNote'' was this for Light Yagami, ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'' is this for L. He goes to terrible lengths [[HeWhoFightsMonsters to prevent Kira's rise to power]] with his own Death Note, not realizing (or rather, refusing to) that all his efforts have already been for naught, as the new Kira has already risen -- L himself.

** The game proved that he didn't suffer a sudden sanity loss, but rather more of a long line of betrayals that started as early as Gast's death and ended with the very facts of his own existence, which overall is both more believable (even allowing for Jenova's clear ability to mess with his brain) and more tragic. Due to CrisisCore we know that he had lost absolutely everything by the time this happened.
