* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', the Prince does his best to make Ehiru stray from Hananja's path. Since Ehiru only escaped being killed senselessly as a child because he had already been chosen by Hananja, the prospect of stopping the internal infighting of the royal family has its appeal. However, [[spoiler:his brother's]] methods go against everything Ehiru believes in.

* Wrestling/KevinSullivan took hold of a mild mannered photographer from New York passing through [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance Championship Wrestling From Florida]] and transformed him into [[Wrestling/PaulHeyman Paul E. Dangerously]], who remained a self serving menace wherever he went from then on out. Sullivan also turned the innocent reporter Trudy Herd into the deranged Wrestling/LunaVachon, though that was more like BrainWashing and though the name stuck Luna would eventually go through a much more convincing HeelFaceTurn than Paul ever did away from Sullivan.

* The Masked Miser Angelo Poffo was usually a baby face, both as a wrestler and as manager, in his earlier years but could easily be convinced to turn heel by evil managers Bronco Lubich, particularly during his Chicago run of the 1950s, and [[Wrestling/BobbyHeenan Bobby "The Brain" Heenan]], who paired him together with Chris Markoff to form "The Devil's Duo" TagTeam during the 1960s.
* Wrestling/VinceMcMahon tried to corrupt Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin in 1998, but failed. He was more successful in 2001.

* "Master User" J. D. Thorne in ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' was a User sent into {{Cyberspace}} without the necessary protocols to keep him stable, turning him into a living computer virus that seeks out Programs and twists them into Z-lots.

to:

** A Sith Warrior has the ''option'' of doing this to Jaesa through TraumaCongaLine. She ends up completely insane if you go down this route, but even the kinder path exposes her master as a fraud, sends her parents to a comfortable life in the Empire, and convinces her the Sith are a better deal.
* "Master User" J. D. Thorne in ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' was a User sent into {{Cyberspace}} without the necessary protocols to keep him stable, turning him into a living computer virus that seeks out Programs and twists them into Z-lots. In ''Killer App'' a Program called The Corrupter is turning Programs into drones on the order of his User, masking his presence from the ICP forces and civilians so they can't recognize him as a threat. Tron is sent to cut off the malevolent User's access while Mercury takes down the Corrupter himself.

* The Crippled God from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' specialises in bringing out the worst in people, typically [[DealWithTheDevil offering them exactly what they want]] in exchange for their inclusion in his House of Chains. He has taken up the cause of recruiting 'broken' individuals that can emphasize with him, but if the victim isn't broken already he has no problem breaking them.

* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': After reading his half of the Kira story and becoming addicted to the Death Note, L resolves to become TheMentor to Kira and teach him how to use the Death Note the "right" way. However, once Kira (Light) shows himself nowhere near as corrupted as his story counterpart (sticking only to the worst of criminals and no one else), L, angered that his "villain" isn't acting like the villain he needs to stop, [[spoiler:uses his Death Note to kill criminals undeserving of death, both to frame Light and [[InsaneTrollLogic to kill like that so L can redeem him and teach him to use the Death Note "correctly"]]]]. After ''that'', any illusions that L will be TheMentor to Light are shattered for both the audience and Light himself once he figures out what L has done. The only person L is really fooling is himself.

* In ''Manga/{{Kasane}}'', Habuta largely plays this role to the title character. He's so obsessed with making her an actress of her mother's caliber that he constantly encourages her to let go of her qualms and remorses, and throw morality in the bin to achieve success. This includes [[spoiler:keeping a comatose Nina in a dark room for a full year to "use" her face at will, or tricking Nina's father into thinking his wife (who rightfully suspects that their daughter is an impostor) has gone insane.]] Each time, Kasane expresses some doubts, and each time Habuta gives her a little push.
