* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Originally, Zamasu just wanted the gods to be more involved with mortal affairs so they would stop misusing the knowledge giving to them by the gods. At worst, he wanted the gods to stop protecting mortals since [[HumansAreBastards they're not worth it]]. After he meets and fights Goku, however, he goes off the deep end and decides that mortals are foolish ''and'' dangerous and need to be destroyed for the peace of the universe. [[spoiler:To that end, he kills his own master, takes his Time Ring, uses the Super Dragon Balls to take Goku's body, and murders him and his family [[EvilIsPetty out of spite]]. By the time Zamasu (now Goku Black) reaches Earth, he's wiped out all the gods in the future timeline, is clearly insane, and sees himself as the one true god of TheMultiverse along with Future Zamasu.]] Whatever nobility he may have had in his goals are long gone.

* Riku goes through this in the first ''VideoGame/{{Kingdom Hearts|I}}'' game. He starts out using the darkness because he wants to retrieve Kairi's heart. This eventually takes second place to his jealousy of Sora -- after taking the Keyblade, losing the Keyblade and getting his ass kicked, he's willing to open himself completely to the darkness if it means he can be stronger than Sora. [[GrandTheftMe Big mistake.]]
* 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.

Of course, he's long since become DrunkOnTheDarkSide, and now just wants to cause an apocalypse ForScience.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'''s Light Yagami originally had good intentions, but as he got more and more drunk on power he lost sight of them in favor of taking over the world. Alternately, he had superego-compatible justifications, which fell by the wayside as he became more and more used to the safety of anonymity and the fact that people who liked Kira liked him for his power more than anything, and that sparring with L was actually a lot more interesting than taking out the trash. Either way his access to dark side powers seduced him to casual evil without his noticing.

* Possibly [[spoiler:Gin Ichimaru]] from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. It seems he originally started [[spoiler:plotting to kill Aizen as revenge for his underlings attacking Rangiku in her youth.]] Now over a century later [[spoiler: he still tried to kill Aizen, but was he willing to wound Rangiku to accomplish that..]] He seems to have lost track of himself a ''long'' time ago. This may be a fusion of TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget and BecomingTheMask, though. Hundred years of undercover that's actually pretty fun will do that to you.

* ''ComicBook/BatmanVampire'': Batman goes through this in the final part of the trilogy, ''Crimson Mist'', after succumbing to SanitySlippage and his vampire nature. As he falls deeper and deeper into corruption, he reflects that he can no longer understand the {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s of his female allies from ''Red Rain'' and ''Bloodstorm'', Tanya and Selina Kyle, respectively, now regarding them as foolish actions rather than selfless and noble.



* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': Shortly after being freed of his original demon side, Cole's was involuntarily possessed by the power of the Source of All Evil, and though he tried to resist for a time, it quickly turned him into the new Source, specially after Phoebe vanquishes the demon that would've taken the Source's essence for himself. After being vanquished, he came back from the dead and tried to use his powers to fight demons, [[GenreBlind though by this time he really should've known better]]. The sisters seem to give him the full measure of blame for his actions, even though Phoebe was partially to blame.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'': Shredder's love for Tang Shen, and her choosing Splinter over him, is [[LoveMakesYouEvil his primary reason for turning evil]]. By the time of "Requiem," he's fallen so far that he no longer seems to care about Tang Shen at all, having absolutely zero qualms against [[SpeakIllOfTheDead mocking Shen's death to Karai's face]] by declaring that it's fitting that Karai will die in a burning building just as her mother did.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', BigBad PhysicalGod Dagoth Ur may have this trope going on depending on [[TheRashomon which version]] of {{backstory}} events you choose to believe. According to one account of his history, he only started using the power of the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]] in order to protect it from being abused by the Tribunal; but it corrupted him and he became worse than they ever were.
