* TheDarkSide (yes, the original from ''Franchise/StarWars'') tends toward the physical aspects of this, slowly twisting, corrupting, and generally uglifying its adherents. In the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]], it's explained that Emperor Palpatine had to leapfrog from clone body to clone body as he grew more powerful, [[CloneDegeneration with each one disintegrating faster]].

* ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'': In the Season 7 episode "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Duke", Luke drinks tainted water (a personality-altering drug) and becomes abusive to his family and conspires -- with a band of bank robbers -- to rob Hazzard Bank. This leaves Bo, Daisy and Uncle Jesse racing against time to press for answers and stop Luke from the biggest mistake of his life.

* Sylar from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Especially in Season 4. It looks like he wants it to stick this time. (Last time, he gave up because Ma Petrelli's urging of his reform was based on a lie.)

* The boy who would become Wrath in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' was a sweet, shy, and innocent young child who was suffering from a nasty case of amnesia when he was first introduced to the audience. [[AxCrazy Then he starts to eat unfinished Philosopher's Stones....]]

* During the Alien Costume StoryArc, Franchise/SpiderMan becomes addicted to the power and freedom the ComicBook/{{Venom}} symbiote gave him... until he learned that it exacerbated his aggressive tendencies and would've absorbed him into itself in the long run. Peter Parker managed to "quit" the symbiote, but his successor, Eddie Brock, wasn't so lucky. Note that this wasn't actually a part of the original comic-book version, [[LostInImitation but has appeared in all the adaptations]]. Brock '''seems''' to be better, now. At the moment. Sort of. Meanwhile, under the Symbiote's influence, Mac Gargan has crawled up the food chain of evil, in more ways than one.

** Similarly, in a (now non-{{canon}}) future, Knuckles gets juiced up on Chaos power and goes mad, [[AGodAmI attempting to reshape his world as he sees fit]]. He was stopped by Sonic and an alien device, but it robbed him of an eye and all but irreversibly annihilated his relationship with the hedgehog. Note that canonically, he's already been pumped up with Chaos energy once, and while he didn't go insane or anything, he still died (he got better, though). This actually sort of happened in one arc with Knuckles being taken over by the Enerjak power- however it ended better with Sonic forgiving him, though Knuckles still feels bad about it.

* ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' established that [[DealWithTheDevil selling one's soul]] is not only addictive, but exponentially detrimental to it, lessening its "value" with each trade. [[spoiler:This is why a strung-out and desperate Faust tried (unsuccessfully) to barter [[ComicBook/ElongatedMan Ralph Dibny]]'s soul instead.]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'''s Goa'uld tend to suffer from an actual physical addiction with evil as the primary side effect: the sarcophagus, particularly demonstrated in Daniel's experience with it in ''Need''. The Tok'ra, an offshoot of the Goa'uld, refuse to make use of the sarcophagus no matter what. They believe it's a major reason why the Goa'uld are AlwaysChaoticEvil, and consider their own reduced lifespans to be a perfectly acceptable trade-off.

** Fable 2 introduces corruption and purity in addition to good and evil. As a result, it's possible to be pure evil, which results in a pale-skinned, GlowingEyesOfDoom appearance, or corrupt evil, which results in a demonic form, complete with horns and fissures of evil. However, ''despite'' your appearance, it's possible to be a VillainWithGoodPublicity if you play your cards right, and people will just LOVE that random ''demon'' walking through town.

* Pleasure Island in the [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney version]] of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', where bad boys are invited to do what bad boys love to do... [[NightmareFuel/{{Pinocchio}} until they learn too late it's a trap]], and the island is [[{{Animorphism}} magically imbued to turn them all into donkeys]] after a while; after they have thus literally made jackasses of themselves, they are sold into slavery. Fortunately for the title puppet, he and a few other boys manage to escape before the transformation fully sets in.

**It turns out that the Laws of Magic ("Black magic" being any spell that violates these laws, and warlocks being anyone who uses them) exist because certain spells really do have this corrupting influence on the user, hard enough to resist that no matter the warlock's initial intentions, letting the warlock live typically ended in a high body count.

Added DiffLines:

* The BigBad in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' suffers from this. [[spoiler:Ardyn Lucis Caelum was a wise and noble healer king of Lucis, who absorbed countless daemons into himself to protect his people.]] This had the [[SarcasmMode small side-effect]] of driving him insane. [[FromBadToWorse Not helping the matter whatsoever]], the very gods who gave him that power ''and'' the very people he healed betrayed and ostracized him, rather than help him. This resulted in him going ''completely'' off the deep-end, embracing both his own insanity and evil nature of the daemons, all so he can eventually exact the perfect revenge.
