* Britain's policy of appeasement by prime minister UsefulNotes/NevilleChamberlain towards UsefulNotes/NaziGermany in the 1930s only emboldened them to annex more territory, culminating in the invasion of Poland.
** As WorldWar2 got rolling, France quietly ignored Poland's requests for help, apparently assuming that he would be content with ruling only half of Europe. When AdolfHitler invaded the East of France, it promptly surrendered. In theory they thought Hitler would allow them to run Vichy France but at the peak of its strength germany decided almost everything that happened in France. Ever since then France has never quite been able to shake off the stereotype of CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys.
* Certain refugees which were given asylum in Germany and then went on to commit the Cologne attacks
* Talk to someone who's worked in law enforcement or otherwise spent a lot of time around committed criminals. They'll usually have plenty to tell you about this.
* Psychopaths in general.

** In the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, one of the boss you have to defeat, Ildari Sarothril, is a mage apprentice who served as a test subject for her master, who abandoned her after thinking she had died in the experiment. When you track her back, you find out she had since been found and nursed back to health by a group of miners. Having turned insane from the experiment, she repayed their kindness by killing most of them out of paranoia, and turning the others into test subjects.

* Discussed in the novel ''[[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal]]''. Barney, Hannibal Lecter's primary handler during his incarceration at the asylum, defies any notion that he fraternized with Lecter. According to Barney, Lecter is ''nobody's'' friend. Lecter was civil with Barney, genuinely thanked him for treating him decently and sent him a generous tip after his escape. Despite that, Barney had no delusions regarding Lecter's nature--at the end of the book, when he spots Lecter and [[spoiler: Starling]] at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, he hauls ass out of town ''that very same night'', knowing full well that Lecter wouldn't hesitate to kill him in order to ensure his freedom. Jack Crawford gives Clarice Starling a similar warning after Lecter's escape. In the end Clarice decides to rescue Lecter from being tortured to death and in return Lecter [[spoiler:brainwashes her with hypnosis and drugs in an attempt to reprogram her with the personality of his dead sister. Clarice is able to resist total LossOfIdentity but still ends up with memories removed and a radical change in personality.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', [[spoiler:Sten]] was left for dead when the darkspawn massacred his squad. When he came to, he found that he had lost his sword (without which he could never go home again) and slaughtered the villagers who picked him up and nursed him back to health in blind rage. He follows the player as his own RedemptionQuest because of this.
