** A major part of Megatron's HeelFaceTurn in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' comes from him realising this had happened to him and working to grow beyond it.
--->'''[[spoiler:Terminus]]:''' What's happened?\\
'''Megatron:''' Nothing. Everything. I lost my way.

** Malak started out as Revan's right-hand man and one of the Jedi who wanted to get out there and actually save the Republic. After bathing in the Dark Side, he betrayed his closest friend, then started trying to take over the Republic himself.

* Downplayed in ''Fanfic/WithThisRing''. [[spoiler: Paul]] merges with the Ophidian to save his friends and while [[spoiler: Paulphidian]] is still largely benevolent and supports the good guys, they cannot feel any emotion besides Avarice and so they longer understand why they are so attached to them. They have completely forgotten what feeling emotions are like.

* Completely averted with Terra in the prequel. Through most of the game he's ''very'' careful with his use of darkness, and never loses sight of his morals or priorities. Unfortunately, he ends up even worse off than Riku.

* [[spoiler:Severus Snape]] from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a good example. He started out as a [[NoSocialSkills socially awkward]] but well-meaning young boy who desperately craved friendship, but due to his increasing bitterness over being bullied by [[JerkJock James Potter]] and his gang, as well as the influence of his [[FantasticRacism highly prejudiced]] friends, he began to become more accepting of Dark Magic and eventually called [[spoiler:Lily Evans]] (the only person who truly cared for him) a mudblood, alienating her from him, while (according to WordofGod) his desperate desire for friends led him to become a Death Eater.

** All of the surviving Chaos Primarchs. Magnus once wanted to spread knowledge, now his main desire is payback against the Imperium and especially the Space Wolves. Perturabo wanted to be respected; now he lurks on a Daemon World, the prisoner of his own resentment. Angron wanted revenge for the deaths of the only family he ever knew; now the party responsible has been effectively dead for ten millennia, but Angron doesn't care because he lives solely for killing. Mortarion once sought to end the threat of psykers; now he only wants dominion. Fulgrim's quest for perfection - and his Legion's - became a non-stop pursuit of excess. Lorgar is about the only one to remain reasonably clear, since his motivation before and after his fall to Chaos was the spread of faith; all that changed was faith in ''what''. The remaining three are Horus (dead), Konrad Curze (likewise), and Alpharius ([[MindScrew who the hell even knows at this point]]).

*** Played with, however, in that The Illusive man is ''indoctrinated''. Shepard would have turned him around, but he's ''incapable'' of accepting.

* Daisy Fitzroy, the leader of the Vox Populi in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', ends up thinking she has to kill ''children'' of upper class parents ''on the chance'' they become {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s. [[spoiler:Burial At Sea subverts this, it shows that this was a Batman Gambit she was doing to get Elizabeth to kill her on behalf of the Lucene twins. She had no intentions of harming Finks son for real]]

* In the backstory of ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures Jade]] absorbed the power of the Shadowkhan in order to save her family from a villain known as the [[TheChessmaster Magus King]]. But the process was irreversible, and after some time she became corrupted and tried to TakeOverTheWorld herself, leading to her being [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]]. Now, [[TimeAbyss countless centuries later]], she's now lost large chunks of her memory.

*** Sargeras was once TheParagon of Good itself, and is more of a case of HeWhoFightsMonsters when he realized all he was fighting for would be for nothing [[spoiler:if (and in his eyes, ''when'') the [[EldritchAbomination Void Lords]] successfully managed to corrupt a sleeping Titan and corrupt all of creation]] and his fellow Titans refused to help him, so he decided to purge all creation in fire and destruction [[spoiler:in the faint hope [[WellIntentionedExtremist the universe would start again better prepared to fight off the corruption of the Void Lords]]]]. In this case, his motive didn't drive him to evil before decaying, it decayed and then drove him to evil.

*** Sargeras was once TheParagon of Good itself, and is more of a case of HeWhoFightsMonsters when all the pain and suffering and hatred he had seen across the universe got to be too much for him and he decided the better solution was to just burn it all. In this case, his motive didn't drive him to evil before decaying, it decayed and then drove him to evil.

*** Illidan is...[[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor complicated]]. He originally turned to the fel partially to [[TakesOneToKillOne fight the Burning Legion]] during the War of the Ancients, but also because of [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy towards his brother Malfurion]] and [[HeroicWannabe a desire to be the hero]]. He's done both horrible ''and'' good things with that power ever since, and he's been on both sides of the conflict and [[WildCard his own side]]; heck, he even started an order dedicated to using fel magic to kill demons with his demon hunters. These days, he's a questionably-sane WildCard who's more inclined to kill demons than Azeroth's people, but pretty much [[TheFriendNobodyLikes everybody's still wary of him]].
