* Each of the killers in ''VideoGame/DeadByDaylight'' has an origin story that is only explained [[AllThereInTheManual on the official website]].
** The Trapper was a loyal worker on his father's estate, but after his father's mental health degraded to the point of ordering him to massacre the rest of the workers, he in turn snapped and murdered his father, which earned him a spot in [[EldritchAbomination The Entity's]] ranks.
** The Wraith was a crusher operator at an auto chop-shop, but after learning that the main purpose of his job was actually to perform hits on people who were trapped inside the cars, he went mad, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard killed his boss in the same way he murdered all his other victims,]] then ripped out his head and spine, which he now uses as his primary weapon.
** The Hillbilly was hated by his parents since birth because of his physical deformity, and they locked him away in a room where the only contact he had with the outside world was being fed through a hole in the wall. Eventually, he escaped, murdering his parents and all of the animals on their farm.
** The Nurse had a good life and promising future, until her lumberjack husband died in a work accident, forcing her to take a job at [[BedlamHouse Crotus Prenn Asylum]] to make ends meet. After spending two decades surrounded by insane people, she finally went insane herself, massacring all of the patients in the middle of the night.
** The Shape is, well...[[Film/{{Halloween}} Micheal Myers.]]

* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
** Magneto.
** The film depicts Mystique as an insecure young woman looking for a purpose... [[WellIntentionedExtremist and she finds it.]] Taken even further in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', where she effectively becomes a DarkActionGirl. Xavier even states that her first deliberate murder [[spoiler: of Bolivar Trask in the original timeline]] "is when Raven became Mystique."

* ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'' starts out with a [[UsedToBeASweetKid innocent but hardy scottish lad]] by the name of Scrooge Mcduck, who sets out into the world for adventure and fortune to show the world what he could do... But as we both know, the Scrooge Mcduck we know are by no means innocent. The comic actually starts out as a [[TheHerosJourney traditional hero's journey]], but just as our titular protagonist is at his strongest and most capable, he [[FallFromGrace slips up,]] unknowingly creating a dark path that [[DownerEnding makes him into a villain, alienates his family and destroys the last parts of the innocent adventurer]]... Before a certain [[DonaldDuck duck and his three nephews]] reminded him of [[RedemptionQuest his old days, of course.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' we see the events that made Anakin Skywalker a hero of the Clone Wars. But sprinkled throughout are moments foreshadowing his fall to the Dark Side. More than once he uses Force Choke on his enemies to save Ahsoka's life. His trust in his master is shaken when Obi-Wan fakes his own death and does not tell Anakin. And his faith in the Jedi Council is shattered when they turn their backs on Ahsoka.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Hell's mind was already unstable and unsound cause his upbringing (he was abused by everybody when he was young, including his parents. Particularly her mother often spouted she never wanted having children and she would be better off without him; and she was not above hitting him for no reason). However, when he found out the woman he loved was in love with another man [[spoiler:Juzo Kabuto, future builder of Mazinger-Z and [[TheHero Kouji]]'s grandfather]], he... [[LoveMakesYouCrazy flipped out]] and [[LoveMakesYouEvil attempted to murder his perceived rival]]. Shortly after he tried helping someone... and he got the crap beaten out of him for it. Later he was crawling back towards his home, bruised and blood-stained, muttering "Mediocre imbeciles! You don't deserve being alive! One day I'll purge the world off all of you! And then everybody will have kneel before me". When you heard his words and saw his utterly mad stare you realized he had snapped out completely and Dr. Hell had been born.

* ''ComicBook/BeastWarsUprising:'' The story "Identity Politics" is one for Scorponok, and Megatron. The former starts off as a senior worker at a refinery, and the later a good-natured, approachable administrator who's even willing to talk with ''Maximals'' (a rarity in the stratified Cybertron). Then Megatron's boss shafts him to further his own political career, Scorponok makes a casual comment about finding a stash of energon of their own, and it all snowballs from there...
