* Averted in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', were the many colors of mana are neutral, [[DarkIsNotEvil even Black]]. There are spells and groups like the [[AssimilationPlot phy]][[BodyHorror rexians]] that corrupt people's personalities, but magic by itself isn't a corrupter.

* This trope -- well, its subtrope ClothesMakeTheManiac, anyway -- was, oddly enough, not actually present in the original Black Costume ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' story, but [[LostInImitation appears in all adaptations thereof]].

** Naturally appears aplenty in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', with its Jedi themes. The Sith in general appear to like to be as evil as possible, and their view on how it's ''rational'' to do things may even be corrupted by the Dark Side. There are a couple of occasions where you are questioned about the right course of action to take from a Sith perspective, and the right option always seems to be the most evil one available. For example, they rationalise why you need to do the YouHaveFailedMe trope, and make sure to ShootTheDog even if it's not strictly necessary.
** In the alternate ending of ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', you can choose to [[spoiler:kill Darth Vader and take his place as the Emperor's right-hand man. However, you then decide to kill the Emperor to elevate yourself further, but he sees it coming and mangles you to the point that you had to be put into a suit like Vader was, and are forced to serve as his apprentice indefinitely .]]

necessary. There's also the story of Darth Revan, where it's not entirely clear whether the fallen Jedi with fearsome intellect and immensely strong personality was a puppet of the Dark Side or made it his puppet; it has been suggested that his plan of becoming the galaxy's bad guy in order to toughen up the Republic for the inevitable invasion of the True Sith was really a rational move, but then again, that's exactly what he would think if he was corrupted by the Dark Side in the way described above.

** For instance, in the game ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', you are eventually confronted by a fallen Jedi, [[spoiler: Bastila]], who attempts to lure you to the Dark Side and applauds atrocious actions.

* The Dark Dimension in ''Film/DoctorStrange'', ruled by Dormammu. Dormammu is very much TheCorrupter, offering eternal life to his followers who drink on this dimension's power (what they often forget is that it's an eternal life of ''suffering''). [[spoiler:The Ancient One managed to use said dimension's power to stay young and live hundreds of years without succumbing to Dormammu's will, while Kaecilius and his followers became servants of Dormammu, as shown by the cracked skin around their eyes.]]

*** You can break the addiction though through sheer willpower, and end up becoming a GeniusBruiser you become more connected to your humanity by telling the Beast where to stick it, and get bonuses to mental stats (Called the Red Denial) the downside? It feels about has pleasant as hearing nails on a chalkboard, and chewing tinfoil at the same time. Denying the beast feels AWFUL.
