* In ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'', Braham is friend you make early on in the Living World as part of the new generation of heroes. After [[spoiler:his mother]] is killed, his next appearance has him acting increasingly abrasive toward the player, arguing against plans that will save people because it will come at the cost of his personal revenge, and ultimately storming off when you point out the horrible trade-off that has become his goal.

This tactic ''can'' be handled well, and can add nuance and intrigue to an established character, shaking up potential story arcs and fan expectations. But when executed poorly, a clever audience will have them picked out from the beginning like an oak tree in a beanfield, even if the other characters [[DevilInPlainSight don't see it]].

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 ''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.
