* The vampires in ''Series/YoungDracula'' seem to experience shades of this:
** Ryan goes from telling his sister to [[MercyKill kill him]], to scratching out her photos and expressing disgust at her "breather" status
** After [[spoiler: Vlad bites Erin]], she goes from being the face of the Vampire-Slayer alliance to biting people and actively breaking the ceasefire.



** All the Psychic Children we meet who aren't killed before they can [[spoiler:except Sam, who never intentionally betrays humanity]] turn their demon-blood-born power toward [[BigBad Azazel]]'s murderous expectations. Jake even kills Sam and unleashes hell on earth, intending to lead an army of demons against humanity.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'' all the vampire courts appear to have this to a greater or lesser degree. When the Red Court fully transform the human part of them dies entirely, though the physical form is still used as a "flesh mask" by the creature within. However they don't cross over until they kill a human and drink their blood, and several members of the organization dedicated to fighting the Red Court are [[VampireRefugee Vampire Refugees]]. The Black Court are Dracula style vampires, but little is mentioned about how they reproduce except that they do it fast, which does imply a pretty complete transformation. The White Court are the least hit by it. They end up sharing their body with a demonic Hunger that heavily influences them, but it is possible to fight against it. They're also a family, so it's more a matter of accepting the family business than a 180 degree allegiance switch.
* In ''KnownSpace'' if an ape or hominid at a certain age eats from the Tree of Life it becomes a Protector (too young, and it doesn't do anything; too old and they don't survive the metamorphosis) where they enter true adulthood and have a massive amount of changes, making it stronger, faster, more resistant to damage, and granting it super-human intelligence. A Protector is compelled to protect his genetic lineage, and his species from any possible harm. As a matter of course, Protectors exterminate any nearby alien species on the grounds that they ''might'' become a threat.

* Inverted in ''TheVampireFiles'' with [[spoiler: Whitey Kroun]], who'd actually been prone to rape and murder women while drugged out of his mind prior to becoming a vampire. His transformation rendered him unable to do drugs anymore, and brain trauma suffered when he died stripped away his memories of his past misdeeds and their motives, allowing him to achieve a HeelFaceTurn ''because'' he'd ceased being human.

* Arguably the root of everything that goes wrong in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}''. The Byrgenwerth scholars that cracked open the Pthumerian tombs, their Healing Church {{Spiritual Successor}}s, and most of all the School of Mensis, all wanted to transcend mortality and humanity, and went to demented extremes in their mad search for the secrets of godhood.

* ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'': This is the reason why Byakuren was sealed in another dimension. In her pursuit of immortality via black magic, she began to sympathize with youkai and instead of outright sealing them, she began trying to find ways to ensure peaceful cooperation between humans and youkai. While Byakuren was brimming with good intentions and her youkai followers adored her, the big problem lied in that said followers were a bit unclear on some Buddhist tenets - particularly on why eating sentients is bad, and the humans depended on her for exterminations. In the end, [[BeingGoodSucks she was sealed in the demon world for "consorting with youkai" for her attempts at fostering friendship between the races]].
