* [[spoiler: Jack Marston]] in VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption. As a kid, He is very kind and polite, and even dreams of becoming a writer. How does he end up? [[spoiler: The goverment betrays his father - Both his father and his father figure die on the assault, and his Dog and Mother are shown to be deceased within 3 years. He becomes a depressed gunslinger, kills the (Now-retired) corrupt Federal agent that ordered the assault, and ends up just wandering around the wild west just when the old west was beginning to die out. There's a possibilty that he eventually did become a succesful writer, but only if an Easter egg in GTA V counts as canon.]]

* [[spoiler:Reinhard von Lohengramm]] invokes and subverts this from LegendofGalacticHeroes. Flashbacks show that as a child he was perfectly-content to live an ordinary life with his elder sister and best friend. [[spoiler:And then said elder sister is forced to become a member of Emperor Frederick IV's harem]] leading [[spoiler:Reinhard]] to grow obsessed with obtaining the power to save his sister and become Emperor himself to gain revenge against the Goldenbaum Dynasty and their supporters. He succeeds and actually institutes proto-constitutional reforms in the empire making it a better place to live for its people compared to the [[TheAlliance Free Planets Alliance]], but in the course of doing so he makes Machiavellian decisions such as but not limited to: turning a blind eye to rebel nobles launching a strategic nuclear attack on a frontier planet and killing four million people, as well as executing rebel nobles and their male relatives aged 10 and above before exiling their remaining relatives to the frontier. However his reforms '''DO''' subvert the trope to an extent, as while he is certainly feared by his enemies, he is respected and even ''devoted'' by the majority of his subjects, and it's implied that his new dynasty would preside over a new golden age for Humanity.

** There was a tiny baby, abandoned by his parents and adopted by another martial arts master. Though trials were difficult, and the regiment strict, never once did the little boy feel that it was a burden, being driven by nothing more than his love for his adoptive father. Then came the time, when he became 15, to inherit his master's style after a final trial and become and adult. The little boy's name was [[spoiler:Souther]], and neither does this story have a happy ending. [[FreudianExcuse Well]], {{al|asPoorVillain}}most [[DeathEqualsRedemption had]].

* Raven/Gilbert Nightray of ''PandoraHearts'' was absolutely adorable as a child. Following his BreakTheCutie event he became a brooding, serious man with major issues. He can still act sweet without meaning to sometimes, though.
