* Depending on a whole lot of things ''Loki'' might have been one of these after getting over the abusive blood relatives and before the adoptive ones and fate itself turned out to be jerks too and he stepped on his path of darkness. We can't really tell for certain because all stories of his childhood are plagued by {{unreliable narrator}}s. Generally if Thor or Loki himself tell about those times then he was a sweet kid, if anybody else then he was always evil apparently. But the theory got more believable when he was reborn as a child and turned out to be... a nice kid albeit also very rebellious and mischievous [[AllTheOtherReindeer with serious problems fitting in]].

** This is also invoked in regards to [[spoiler: Boa "Pirate Queen" Hancock. A flashback shows her as a cute, even rather sweet cabin girl from a Kuja ship.... Then she and her sisters were kidnapped, branded, force-fed Devil Fruits, and totally traumatized - which is the big reason she's such an aloof, bitchy, cold LadyOfWar in the present.]]

** While hiding out in Zuko's summer home, the group find [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110329213952/avatar/images/4/45/Baby_Ozai.png a picture of a smiling and sweet-looking boy]] and tease Zuko about it. Much to Team Gaang's dismay, Zuko reveals that it's not of him - it's a picture of his [[AbusiveParents abusive father]], [[BigBad Firelord Ozai]]. They're left [[GoodCannotComprehendEvil baffled and horrified at this]], wondering how such an innocent toddler would one day become the genocidal, sociopathic, and warmongering tyrant they're now up against. Even [[InvokedTrope invoked]]:

* The Norfolk Dolls of the FWA/WWA Academies started wrestling in their early teens and were [[KidAppealCharacter instant hits]] with the little girls in attendance. Melody would increasingly pattern herself after her manager, Sam Knee, going by such names as "Melody Knee" and "Sammi Baynze", also becoming quite TheBully in to wrestlers she was once like.

* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' gives this backstory to the Beast. Belle learns from Mrs. Potts that the Prince was a sweet, innocent little boy until his mother died, leaving him in the hands of his cruel father, who shaped him into the selfish, arrogant {{Prince Charmless}} whom the Enchantress eventually cursed.

** And of course, there are [[spoiler:the Witches]]. Although we don't get backstories for all of them, the few who are explained universally fit this trope. [[spoiler:Charlotte, the Witch who decapitates Mami, used to be a bubbly child named Nagisa who was obsessed with cheese. Octavia von Seckendorf used to be Sayaka, easily the most idealistic of the protagonists. And in the timelines where she becomes a Witch, Madoka becomes Kriemhild Gretchen, a monster that Cthulhu would check for under his crypt before going to sleep]].

* Red vs Blue: When we are first introduced to Agent Washington, he is portrayed as being strict, cold, and somewhat ruthless towards those around him while keeping up a professional and stoic demeanor. It is revealed that his behavior was the result of an incident he had with his A.I., Epsilon, who went insane and committed suicide while ''in his head''. The Freelancer Trilogy furthers how much the Epsilon Incident changed Washington by showing how he was practically the youngest, most naive of the freelancers before being implanted with Epsilon.
