* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Most any daemon or Chaos cultist could fulfill this role, as their goal is to turn people to the worship of Chaos and away from the light of the GodEmperor.
** Probably the most infamous Corrupter is Erebus of the Word Bearers legion. Generally seen as the instigator of the Horus Heresy (and all the hell that brought on the Imperium and the rest of the galaxy), Erebus turned his Primarch to Chaos when Lorgar was having his CrisisOfFaith and also was the driving force behind the corruption of Horus himself. From there the corruption spread throughout the Word Bearers and then to other legions.
** Calas Typhon of the Death Guard, who manipulated his legion into having the Destroyer Plague unleashed on them, setting them up to turn to Nurgle and become Plague Marines. Typhon was rewarded by becoming Typhus the Traveler, a Chaos Champion of [[PlagueMaster Nurgle]].
** Ahzek Ahriman of the Thousand Sons (who, in an odd twist, was attempting to ''save'' his legion from corruption when he became their ultimate undoing).

* Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** Any daemon or Chaos cultist could fulfil this role in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' with the minions of Tzeentch, god of fate, and Slaanesh, the god of pleasure, being particularly adept at turning the innocent from the path of righteousness.

* Mephiles in ''Sonic 2006'' fills this role, or tries to. He tries to tempt Shadow into turning evil again to "help Mephiles" in a desire for revenge, when all Mephiles actually wants to do is destroy everything. He also manipulates Silver into getting him to kill Sonic, which sticks for most of the game until Shadow convinces him of better. Luckily, it turns out Shadow is the only character with a clue. [[spoiler:At the end, Mephiles takes matters into his own hands, and kills Sonic.]]

* 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.

** 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.
