* ''Manga/ElfenLied''. Sure, [[KidsAreCruel brats]]. Go ahead and beat to death the puppy of the [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], [[TheWoobie emotionally-repressed pink-haired girl]] [[ApocalypseMaiden with horns]] and force her to watch -- [[SarcasmMode she can't hurt you]].

* ''Manga/ElfenLied''. ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Zamasu. While he never trusted or liked mortals, he wasn't actively against them or wanted to kill them. He just wanted to take a more direct approach when dealing with mortals who abused the gods' knowledge, instead of just watching and guiding. Things, however, went downhill the moment [[spoiler:Present]] Zamasu meets Goku. Not only is Goku a mortal who is friendly with gods, but he is also more powerful than most gods outside of the Gods of Destruction. Once Zamasu gets into his mind that mortals are stupid and dangerous, everything else was confirmed bias.

* The ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' web-serial ''Mutran Chronicles'' and a scene from the book ''Swamp of Secrets'' reveal just why the formerly benevolent [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Makuta]] turned against the Matoran Universe--it was because the peoples of the universe all attributed their efforts to preserve the balance of things to Mata Nui, and shunned them for being affiliated with the element of shadow. They got fed up with this. The comic ''Rise and Fall of the Skrall'' also details why the titular race wanted to overrun the desert region of Bara Magna along with its locals--they were driven out of their home-realm by robot assassins, and needed the space to fight back. Although it's to be assumed that being mean has always been their way.

* ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}''--[[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119656 The villains]] in this comic had miserable lives before they became villains.
* The TropeNamer--admittedly more recent than most of the other examples here, but it's still a pretty cool title--is ''Start of Darkness'', prequel to ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' detailing EvilOverlord Xykon and his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Redcloak's past. Xykon, unlike most, is astonishingly evil from the get-go. We get to see him become ''more'' evil... but more importantly, a lot more ''competent''. [[AntiVillain Redcloak is a whole other story]].\\\

* In ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', we learn that the Injustice-verse Superman started his takeover of the world after the Joker tricked him into killing Lois and his unborn child by taking them up to space without a suit because he was under the effect of a Kryptonite-induced fear toxin that made Superman hallucinate that she was Doomsday. Lois's death triggered the hidden DeadManSwitch in her to ''set off a nuke and blow up Metropolis''.

The Joker then successfully goaded Superman into murdering him, something that he was never able to do with Batman.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Mojo Jojo's origin was intinally revealed in the episode "Mr. Mojo's Rising". Mojo's telling of the origin paints him as someone who might come off as sympathetic but Utonium reveals that Mojo was just as unsympathetic when he was Jojo. In fact, Mojo may actually be ''more'' likable and sympathetic as a supervillain than he ever was when he was just a normal monkey.

* ''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...

* Prince Luca Blight from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' had his after his family was ambushed by bandits in one of their official travels. He and his father managed to escape, but his mother wasn't so lucky. Luca wanted to go back for her but his father said that he couldn't risk his life as the King. His mother was rescued shortly after, but she didn't return to the castle. Several months later, Luca managed to find out where she was and quickly escaped from the castle in order to meet her. He had a arduous journey, and a man took his horse in exchange for a pear and some water (Luca didn't want to eat the wild berries or drink the muddy water he found in the way). Upon finally meeting his mother, she started to scream and rip her hair out when Luca came close. One of their aids explained that she was brutally raped by the bandits and got pregnant, as well as going completely insane and unable to stand near men. Luca then snapped. He went back to the castle, but not before meeting the man who took his horse, who he murdered with joy. He was also lucky enough to find a small village along the way, and found that the bandits, as well as his mother's rapist, were sheltered in a house there. He stormed inside the hut and caught everyone off-guard, murdering everyone. When he found the rapist, he tortured and killed him gruesomely. When he returned to the castle, two things were permanently scarred on his mind: the disgust for people and the pleasure he got when killing. Thus, Luca Blight, who causes a war for the sole reason of having an excuse to kill people by the thousands.
