* [[DirtyCoward Peter Pettigrew]] in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' was one of these, but his best friends never realized this at all. Some fanfics also subvert this trope by making the reason Sirius distrusted Remus either wrong conclusions due to mix-ups combined with Remus's lycanthropy, or having Remus be framed by Peter without Remus realizing it.

** Surprisingly, ''Deathly Hallows'' reveals that Albus Dumbledore was this in his youth. He was nearly manipulated into making a FaceHeelTurn by his [[ShipTease crush]] [[HoYay Gellert Grindelwald]] (the other major Dark Lord of the twentieth century and PredecessorVillain to Voldemort), and only rejected Grindelwald when those manipulations led to the death of Dumbledore's sister. Afterwards, Dumbledore became painfully aware that he was this, and as a result swore off love and stayed away from positions of power for the rest of his life.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'' has this for many characters, especially Stein and [[spoiler: Crona]].
** It's also said that while everyone has some kind of insanity in them, some are more susceptible to TheCorruption of Asura than others. Then again, Stein also said that those who had strong faith were ''less'' likely to be driven mad. [[spoiler:[[SinisterMinister That one backfired.]]]]

* Scott Tyler 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.]]

** Farnese also had a bout of this during the Conviction Arc due to her only sexual release without breaking her vows to the Holy See being whipping people and whipping herself, which made her easy prey for possession by the demons after Guts when the Black Swordsman kidnapped her.

* ''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.
