* Creator/MarvelMax minisseries ''ComicBook/ThorVikings'' has a textbook example with Harald Jaekelson and his crew being cursed by a wizard for torching his village and slaughtering its people. They are turned into unstoppable zombies, capable of throwing down with not only Thor (one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe), but also the Avengers (comprised of Captain America, Iron Man, Vision and Scarlet Witch) and the US Marines (whose heads are placed on spikes). They unleash such vicious carnage over New York that they reduce the city to a death camp in just three days without anyone being capable of stopping them, making [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the wizard who cursed responsible for this action]].

* In ''ComicBook/ProjectSuperpowers'', Fighting Yank originally derived his power from his cursed ancestor, a Revolutionary War-era soldier who was denied eternal rest after he blew off a mission in order to get drunk, and then got killed in a tavern; in order to make amends for his failure, the old man was forced to council his descendant. Decades later, after learning that his ancestor's council was responsible for creating a CrapsaccharineWorld, a remorseful Fighting Yank became the Punishment himself, taking his ancestor's curse and serving out the rest of eternity as a guide for future heroes.

** Baphomet, the Demon Prince of Beasts was once mortal and was turned into a demon as punishment for transgressions he commetted against the gods. He reveled in the savage power his new form gave him and went on to become one of the greatest powers in the Abyss.

* Zig-zagged with Witches in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. They are terrifying, fantastically powerful [[spoiler: former Magical Girls who succumbed to despair]], and they are described as "spreading their curses throughout the world". However, they're more {{TragicMonster}}s than anything else, as [[spoiler: even the [[AllLovingHero kindest and nicest]] Magical Girl can be corrupted into one over time]]. Instead, they are described by [[spoiler: Kyuubey]] as being [[spoiler: the logical end of ''any'' wish that is made]]. In that light, their "sin" is seen [[spoiler: by the Incubators]] as [[spoiler: having made the wish that turned them into Magical Girls in the first place]]. There is a reason that [[spoiler: Kyuubey]] and [[spoiler: its people]] are almost universally reviled by the fandom.

* Subverted by Karin in ''Manga/UQHolder''. She has immortality and is unable to be injured due to having betrayed a great man that she followed ([[spoiler:implied to be Jesus]]). When it's first revealed, it's assumed that it's a curse, but she says that it was actually meant as a blessing so that she might one day find redemption.

*** In the 5th edition this has been revised back so that the Drider is again a punishment for failing to please Lolth. However, to make it clearer that this is a punishment Drider's are driven insane by the process of changing and shunned by the rest of Drow society, doomed to live alone as scavengers in the Underdark for failing Lolth.

* Penance (different Penance) used to be Speedball, a FunPersonified character you've probably seen elsewhere on TVTropes, until he caused a major accident resulting in multiple deaths, so he inflicts this upon himself. No one really got it. He's been restored to being Speedball, though the survivor's guilt that fueled his Penance persona is still there.

** Although most of Dr. Weil's antics in the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series are "merely" facilitated by the fact that his is immortal - ie, he is still around after 100 years of bitter punishment, and eventually proves [[HealingFactor very difficult to kill]] - at the ''very end'' of the series it goes FromBadToWorse. He figures out a way to use the technology that made him immortal - more commonly known to the players as Biometal - to [[EvilMakeover become superpowered]], [[PowerCopying channel the powers of his deceased minions]], harness the raw energy powering his KillSat, and generally kick ass. Zero manages to [[SuperPowerMeltdown kill him]] in this form, but that only solves the problem temporarily, as, again due to [[CursedWithAwesome the Awesome he was Cursed with]], he eventually resurfaces in the MegaManZX series as something akin to [[TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]].

* Every enemy in ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' seems to be under some forced punishment from the town. Especially the second game. Monsters in straight jackets of their own flesh, monsters built into rusty cages... While these are [[spoiler:mostly various characters' nightmares given physical form,]] the film version decided [[spoiler:they were the actual townspeople twisted into monsters as part of Alessa's revenge]].
