* The protagonists of ''VideoGame/Persona5'' lose sight of their original goals as they try to win support from the public. Going after more high profile targets to win public support. Unintentionally turning themselves into a fad rather then true social reformists in the public's eyes.

[[spoiler:It turns out this was all part of a BatmanGambit by Masayoshi Shido and TheConspiracy to discredit the Phantom Thieves by framing them for murder after their target dies on TV. Though the Phantom Thieves were set up and didn't actually kill anyone, the public thinks they did, and support for the Phantom Thieves plummets.]]

* Played with in the second season of ''{{Series/Extras}}''. The main character, Andy, gets his own sitcom which makes him ridiculously famous...but the show has been [[ExecutiveMeddling meddled]] with so much that it's no longer any good in Andy's opinion (and in the opinion of LOTS of other people.) Andy struggles with continuing to do the show and being a rich laughingstock or quitting the show (and permanently damaging his career) to do better work.

* The TropeNamer is ''Film/RockyIII'''s anthem "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Eye Of The Tiger]]" by {{Music/Survivor}}. The song is basically a summary of Rocky's meteoritic rise and subsequent BadassDecay during the film. Of course it also details Rocky's triumphant comeback as he regains his killer instinct, the titular "eye of the tiger."

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Yoda tells Luke that part of the reason the Jedi fell was that the Order had lost touch with their spiritual and peaceful ways, allowing themselves to become mired in political and material matters while acting as peacekeepers for the Republic.

* Many stories in the WWF/WWE highlight this trope as the frequent downfall of heels (and occasionally faces) who have been champions for long periods of time. Eventually a combination of arrogance and complacency lands them a defeat at the hands of their title hungry rival.
** Stone Cold's infamous FaceHeelTurn had him ally with ArchEnemy VinceMcMahon to claim the title at Wrestlemania 17. However Austin's main drive was largely to torment and harass Vince and his allies. His BadassDecay got to the point where Vince himself was actively trying to provoke him into attacking him so he'd snap out of it. Fittingly Austin did eventually return to his [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor old self]] by [[ChronicBackStabbingDisorder screwing]] Vince and the ''entire'' WWF - by handing a win to WCW, no less.
** CM Punk accused John Cena, in his hometown of Boston no less, of having sold-out his ideals and no longer being the plucky underdog he portrayed himself as. Punk pointed out he was now a multi-time champion and merchandise machine. His greatest insult came when he claimed that as much as Cena wanted to pretend he was like his beloved Red Sox, he was more like the ''New York Yankees''.
