* Played with in ''Manga/Chobits''. Robot Persocom Chi has a personality living inside her called Freya. Freya always wears darker clothes, sports far less innocent expressions than Chi and is the one to take action to defend Chi when others threaten her. She's not evil, just less innocent than Chi and the holder of the answers to many mysteries of the series.

* Yugi's powerful alter ego in ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Yami Yugi, is not actually evil, but he is a lot less concerned for the well-being of his enemies. Yami Bakura and Yami Marik, on the other hand, are both [[AxCrazy gleefully, psychotically evil]]. (Regular Marik isn't exactly a nice guy either.) In the manga, however, Yami IS insane, at least initially. WordOfGod stated in a Shonen Jump Q&A that Yami Yugi actually WAS insane at first, due to a few millennia of his soul being imprisoned, but that his experiences with Yugi and his friends gradually helped him regain his sense of righteousness. (Quite likely, the turning point occured during the first encounter with Shadi.) The plot point was revisited in the second anime in the "Waking the Dragons" arc. After Yugi's soul gets imprisoned, leaving Yami in control 24/7, he starts to regress back to his original vengeful nature, without Yugi's kind nature there to temper his drive for vengeance. Which makes him a more vulnerable target to Dartz's machinations. This is all likely a result of ''Manga/YuGiOh'' originally being planned as a horror series, with Yami providing the mystery and scarier aspects. It's notable that when ''Anime/YuGiOh'' [[GrowingTheBeard found its feet]] as a series that Yami began to look more humanised, and less of the penalty games were ambiguous as to the fate of the perpetrators, as the series became a battle manga, so the character needed subtle retooling to be a milder arbiter of justice. In series, the difference between his milder Pharaoh persona and his persona after release is likely also due to a lack of memories, and the need to latch on to someone to protect and someone to punish.

* In the third season of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Caitlin starts manifesting her Earth-2 counterpart's superpowers. Eventually, this starts to result in the Killer Frost persona taking over, complete with white hair, icy blue eyes, and a reverbing voice, not to mention the cold powers. It's made clear that Caitlin and Frost are constantly struggling for control. This is foreshadowed by Frankie Kane, whose body is occasionally taken over by her Flashpoint counterpart Magenta, with glowing magenta eyes, an evil smile, and metal control powers. Barry is able to talk Frankie into reining Magenta in, though.

(As for Caitlin, after a several-episode run in full Killer Frost mode, when Savitar is on the verge of finishing Cisco off, she finds she can't bring herself to allow it, and returns to Team Flash for the final battle - but ''not'' to her original pre-powers personality. Even she isn't sure who she is anymore, and pulls a TenMinuteRetirement while she rediscovers herself between seasons.)

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' spin-off DungeonCrawler game ''Battlespire'', this is a trait of the Dark Seducers. Also known as Mazken, Dark Seducers are an intelligent race of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] typically found in service to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] [[MadGod Sheogorath]]. They are [[DarkIsNotEvil more humble and sympathetic toward mortals]], having less of a PunyEarthlings attitude toward them than most lesser Daedra. However, they are also known to [[IFightForTheStrongestSide Fight For The Strongest Side]], quickly switching allegiances if it becomes beneficial to them. The group of Dark Seducers fought in ''Battlespire'' betrayed their former master (a lieutenant of [[TheSacredDarkness Nocturnal]]) to side with BigBad [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] when he promised them greater power. They were rewarded by being remade in the image of Dagon's own greed and treachery - becoming not only physically stronger, but also gifted with [[SuperMode powerful]] [[GoodWingsEvilWings bat-winged]] [[WingedHumanoid forms]]. In later appearances, they lack this form, but are still powerful and intelligent lesser Daedra akin to [[LegionsOfHell Dremora]] and [[LightIsNotGood Golden Saints]].

It's not exactly the hero any more, though. He's got [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing eyes]], some new FacialMarkings, [[CreepyMonotone different way of talking,]] some [[EvilCostumeSwitch new threads]], and a lot less compunction about ripping someone in half. It's his Super-Powered Evil Side. Think of it as the EnemyWithin when it's not the enemy, or as [[JekyllAndHyde Jekyll and super-Hyde]].

** The central example of this in the show is Princess Luna, whose jealousy and bitterness (and according to WordOfGod, an inkling of dark magic) transformed her into the evil Nightmare Moon, bent on plunging the world into eternal night so that ponies would have to acknowledge her night's beauty whether they wanted to or not. [[spoiler:She snaps out of it after a thousand years of isolation and [[CareBearStare a rainbow to the face]]]].

* ''LightNovel/DateALive'' has Inverse Form, a state which Spirits enter if they pass the DespairEventHorizon. In Inverse Form, a Spirit is far more powerful and also lacks any sense of restraint. Their weapon, previously referred to as an "Angel", is replaced by a darker counterpart called a "Demon King".

* ''VideoGame/TowerOfFortune'': The protagonist automatically transforms into a hulking, angry giant at 100% rage, with an 80% chance to hit (as opposed to the usual 45-65% range) and vicious, bloodthristy attacks from punching to sonic-screaming to pouncing on them and ripping their throats out with each subsequent hit. You can abstain from this mode with some skills or prolong the fury with others. How and why your otherwise generic warrior can become a were-giant is a mystery explained in the prequels.
