* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': Two examples.
** Just like in canon, [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]]. However, the presence of the Kira story changes things. Since Light got the second half, he knows how far he fell and resolves to ''never'' become like the original Kira. While he isn't strong enough to stop using the Death Note (especially not with Ryuk threatening his life), he sticks to criminals that have been convicted and sentenced to death or have committed crimes worthy of the death penalty. He also hates manipulating people and refuses to use innocents to achieve his goals, even if they stand in his way. While still a SerialKiller and one at risk of JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, he is far more sympathetic than he was in canon.
** L, who, once he gets his hands on the Death Note, barely lasts longer than canon!Light before he starts going off the deep end and killing criminals from his own personal files. His half of the Kira story did not help at all -- if anything, it made things ''worse''. His half ends in his death, and L is so desperate to subvert his fate that he is willing to become Kira himself to do so. Of course, since L believes he is justice, he refuses to acknowledge the truth of what he is doing.

* Anakin Skywalker being The Corruptible drives the overarching plot of the ''StarWars'' series.
* ''AManForAllSeasons'' has Richard Rich, a young acquaintance of Sir Thomas More, who asks Thomas to use his influence to secure him a powerful position at the Royal Court. More, however, knows full well that Rich is corruptible, and instead recommends that Rich accept a job as a schoolteacher, where he won't be tempted. In the end, [[spoiler: Rich ''does'' get an important position- that of the attorney-general for Wales- given to him by More's rival and the {{villain}} of the piece, Thomas Cromwell. In exchange for the job, he [[MiscarriageOfJustice commits flagrant perjury]] that sends Sir Thomas More to the executioner. More's response? "Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Wales?"]]

* All male confessors from ''SwordOfTruth'' are this, since they do not need the recovery time necessary to restore their powers as female confessors do, and in such develop this unquenchable blood lust even ''before'' they hit adolescence. Because of this, [[spoiler: male infanticide is practiced, making the confessors a OneGenderRace.]]

Contrast BigBadFriend, where the character is evil all along, and TheMole, where the character is evil all along and works to undermine the rest of the team. See also TokenEvilTeammate. The opposite of IncorruptiblePurePureness. A character with poor resistance to ''supernatural'' influence is WeakWilled, not the corruptible. See also CorruptTheCutie, when a sweet and lovable character gradually turns to the DarkSide.

* Scott Tyler of [[ChosenFew The Five]] from ''ThePowerOfFive''. Coupled with a stock crummy past like most of The Five [[spoiler: except [[TheChick Scarlet]]]], Scott was pushed to the edge in the 3rd book when he was [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil tortured]] and brainwashed by [[EvilInc Night Rise]] to assassinate a presidential candidate. In the 5th book, Scott is identified as being the weakest link by the villains, invoking a FaceHeelTurn upon him. [[NeverBeHurtAgain He just wanted the pain to stop]]
