** In the first two films, Professor X seemed to be a paragon of virtue, but here, a dark side is introduced when Wolverine discovers that Charles Xavier himself is this had tampered with Jean's mind without her knowledge or consent in similar situations in order to contain the comics, particularly the story arcs "Deadly Genesis" and "Dangerous", both most dangerous part of her powers. This was very unpopular among non-comic book fans because it was wholly incongruous to Xavier's previous characterization, so ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' recontextualized his unethical behaviour as a manifestation of his acute control issues, a FatalFlaw which seem to paint Charles as being both occurs whenever he lets fear (instead of trust) guide his decisions. In retrospect, his mistreatment of Jean is not so much because he's a WellIntentionedExtremist and NotSoDifferent from Magneto.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Zamasu, the Apprentice Supreme Kai of U10, is, for the most part, portrayed as a young, inexperience Kai who truly wants to make the universe a better place, and see [[HumansAreFlawed mortals]] as not worth the god's protection since they keep repeating the same mistakes. It is not until he meets and fights Goku, and visits Babari that he begins to believe that mortals are inherently evil and dangerous, and should be destroyed for the good of the universe. He also come to believe that the Kais just watching is a sin since they're allowing evil to flourish.

* [[spoiler:Everyone]] in season 1 of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' approaches the corner very subtly, and they [[HeelRealization realize]] it very abruptly.
* Quite a lot of ''CodeGeass'' is about Lelouch trying not to paint himself into the Villain Corner... and failing miserably. [[spoiler:In the end, he just gives up and acts like an EvilOverlord so the world can be at peace when he's killed.]]
* ''{{Naruto}}'': Sasuke. Originally he was just a slightly dark [[RedOniBlueOni blue oni]] [[TheWoobie woobie]], but the [[SmugSnake actual]] [[ManBehindTheMan villains]] gave him a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown gentle push]] toward the corner, [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and,]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds well...]]

* While it's no secret that Cassidy from ''{{Preacher}}'' was [[AntiHero never a saint]], beginning with "Dixie Fried" he started to act more bastardly than was common up to the point, and then came "All Hell's A-Coming" where we find out just how bad he really is, and for how long.

* In ''SluggyFreelance'', while Dr. Schlock was always more concerned with saving his own hide than anything else, still seemed like a pretty sympathetic guy until he took over [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Hereti-Corp]]. After that, a storyline focusing on him was actually titled "A Year in the Life of a Villain."
* In ''TheWotch'', Miranda West has always been a {{Jerkass}}, but when she [[spoiler:transforms Natasha Dahlet of DOLLY into a [[AndIMustScream living, sentient dolly]]]] it's a pretty sinister act, even if it was delivered to a villain. Miranda's catapulting leap into the Villain Corner continued even further when [[spoiler:she ruined the life of a young man by permanently swapping his gender and then did the same to two innocent friends of his, just to point out how serious she really is about upholding the Masquerade.]]
