* King Zephiel, of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi]]'', was a WellIntentionedExtremist whose [[FreudianExcuse dealings with his father]] had destroyed his faith in humanity.

This is well-shown in his two ''Fire Emblem Cipher'' cards: [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/3/37/B09-074N.png/revision/latest?cb=20170615022843 the first one]] has a young Zephiel happily playing with his younger sister, [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/7/79/B09-073SR.png/revision/latest?cb=20170615022826 the second one]] has his older and embittered self attacking his enemies.

So, to resolve that, Manfroy gave him [[DemonicPossession the Loptyr tome]]...

** Even more so, [[spoiler: '''Big Mom herself''. 866 and 867 are dedicated to her early years, showing her as a genuinely sweet gigantic child who already was a PersonOfMassDestruction and had no control of either her SuperStrength and [[BigEater voracious appetite]]. Around 60 years later, she's the ''far'' more ruthless, [[TheCaligula batshit]] [[AxCrazy insane]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]].]]

* The ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series spends ''[[VideoGame/BlazeUnion a game]]'' showing us firsthand what a sweet person Gulcasa, the HeroAntagonist of ''YggdraUnion'', used to be before [[TraumaCongaLine his life caved in on him]] [[DiabolusExMachina just when it had started to go right]]. Granted, side materials and ''YggdraUnison'', the GaidenGame where he's one of the main characters, go to show that he's ''still'' an incredibly nice guy off the battlefield, but given that the SympatheticPOV is kept away from him for most of the main game, you'd never know it.

** Several episodes into ''Sun and Moon'', we are treated to an EarlyBirdCameo picture of [[http://www.serebii.net/anime/pictures/sunmoon/951/DP162.jpg Lillie's stoic brother Gladion as a little boy.]] The same picture also has a young Lillie holding a Lillipup with no problem, indicating something happened to make her so afraid to touch Pokemon in the present day ([[TraumaInducedAmnesia which she doesn't remember]]).

** Sasuke used to be a genuinely likable, out-going child. Then his brother Itachi [[BreakTheCutie broke his mind]] repeatedly and [[FreakOut other]] [[RoaringRampageofRevenge shit]] [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope happened]]. He is currently TheDragon of the BigBad, and things won't get any better anytime soon.
*** Sasuke went through this twice. Even after the MindRape and trauma he was an asocial, aloof boy but not too off. It's during the Chunin Exams, especially just after them, where he began going off the handles. [[spoiler: Fortunately, he gets better in Part 2 thanks to Itachi and the Four Hokages.]]

[[spoiler: Fortunately, he gets better in Part 2 thanks to Itachi and the Four Hokages.]]]] In a filler WhatIf arc where Naruto's parents are alive and the Uchiha massacre never happene, Sasuke's personality is exactly the same as in the main continuity. Instead of being spiteful because he wants revenge on his clan, he's spiteful because his [[WellDoneSonGuy father doesn't pay attention to him]]. He ends up with a InferioritySuperiorityComplex and is jealous of Naruto's relationship with his father.

* Surprisingly, ''Guts from {{Manga/Berserk}}'' was actually a sweet and innocent kid. The downfall started when he was three and his foster mother Sys died of the plague, leaving him to be raised by his sadistic and hateful foster father Gambino. Even after being trained for war and serving on the front lines, he was still a pretty innocent kid, until the night after his first battle when Gambino [[spoiler:sold him to another soldier for three silver coins, a soldier who [[{{Shotacon}} liked little boys in the wrong way]], resulting in a traumatic rape despite Guts' best efforts to fight the man off. The following day when Guts coldly murdered the man was the point of no return. When he was finally forced to kill Gambino in self-defense and was driven out of the camp by a mob intent on killing him, he became bitter, hateful and cut off from other people.]]

* Mao from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' was a sweet, innocent little boy until [[spoiler:[[JerkAssWoobie C.C.]] gave him his Geass power]]. After [[spoiler:[[WhatAnIdiot she abandoned him in the hope of making him not rely on her]]]] it ultimately [[BreakTheCutie broke him completely]] and [[UnhappyMedium drove him insane]], so he turned into a PsychopathicManchild with no grip on reality who {{Mind Rape}}s the local AllLovingHero and the KnightInShiningArmor and kidnaps the IllGirl... To say that his opponent, the IllGirl's DarkMessiah, was ''pissed off'' at him, is an understatement.

** On a heroic example, Boruto. In ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' he is a happy, friendly toddler who loves and respects his father [[spoiler:Naruto]]. By the time he is an academy student he has become resentful of his father due to his job [[spoiler:as hokage]] keeping him away from his family. He still loves [[spoiler:Naruto]] but acts like a jerk towards him and calls him out often. Boruto also suffers from being quite a bit overconfident and cocky when it comes to being a ChildProdigy and due to his HeroicHeritage.

** ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' suggests this with [[spoiler:Giovanni: during Red's gym battle with him, Giovanni realizes how Red's attitude and respect for his Pokemon not only reminded him of his own days as a fresh-faced Trainer before becoming the leader of Team Rocket, but also how it reignited his passion for battling Pokemon for reasons other than business.]]
* Most of the [[Manga/ProjectARMS Egrigori]] experimental children were like this, before whatever processes they were put through were completed.

The fact that the kids were treated terribly and given almost no positive human contact could explain a lot ([[spoiler:Keith Green genuinely grew to love Katsumi because she was the first person who was nice to him.]])

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': "Helga on the Couch" shows us in a flashback that Helga Pataki was a normal girl who was so neglected and ignored that she had to walk to preschool by herself, getting splashed with mud and having her lunch stolen by a dog. She then meets Arnold, probably the first person to ever show her genuine affection, and immediately falls for him. After Harold steals her graham crackers and the other kids start laughing at her, she starts bullying the other kids in order to get respect from them.
