** While BigBad Handsome Jack started out ''evil'' ([[spoiler:trapping your daughter in a small room for her entire life is not the action of a decent man]]), in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' and the "Get to Know Jack" sidequest in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', he's shown to have steadily degenerated from a reasonably controlled form of evil to the casually murderous, deeply self-obsessed version that gets pointed at the Vault Hunters in ''2''.

* Salvatore Leon from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' comes off as a friendly, if ruthless man in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto3'', only to [[spoiler:try and have Claude killed because he suddenly becomes convinced Claude's a spy]]. ''Liberty City Stories'' shows that he had fits of extreme paranoia before this, one time nearly blowing [[TheLancer Tony's]] head off while accusing him of scheming behind his back. [[spoiler:''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' reveals that this extreme paranoia was caused by CJ playing him (and pretty much every other faction that was involved) for a fool in the game's bank heist arc.]]

* Over the course of the Batman: Arkham games, the Riddler gets hit with this pretty hard. With every game he tries harder to defeat you, and with every game he fails, cracking his fragile ego further and further until, by Arkham Knight, he's more ranting and aggressive than ever before.

** In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', Scarecrow is insane, but not much moreso than any other of Batman's rogues. After getting mauled and nearly killed by Killer Croc, he completely loses it and in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' becomes arguably the biggest threat that Batman faces in the entire series.

** One of the nice things about this game is that you invert the process for a few characters. By helping them confront deep-buried issues and work through problems they get some of their lives back.

** Tiny Tina, world's deadliest 13 year old. The reason behind her total loss of sanity? [[spoiler:Flesh Stick (I'm not kidding, that's the guy's name), sold her and her parents to Handsome Jack, for his Slag experimentation. Her mother gave her a grenade and taught her how to use. What next? Handsome Jack used them as guinea pigs. Seeing her parents mutate due to slag, Tiny Tina ran away after putting the grenade to a good use.]] Ever since, she went a bit nuts... BURN ALL THE BABIES!!!!

DummiedOut audio files show Tiny Tina's descent into madness, but it was likely cut out for being a bit too disturbing since she's a pre teenager.

* The Harran virus in ''VideoGame/DyingLight'' first causes seizures, then increasingly vivid hallucinations that rapidly take on a terrifying tone if the uninfected are unable to get their supply of Antizin on time. If it's allowed to progress past that, zombification is the inevitable (and irreversible) result.

** After the [[MookMaker Foundry]] is seized by an imperial strike team and Revan pulls a [[VillainExitStageLeft villain exit stage left]]. He returns in Shadow of Revan [[OffscreenVillainDarkMatter (pulling an army out of his ass in the process)]] after deciding "Screw it; lets kill everyone" promptly declares war on both the Empire (reasonable) and the Republic (less so). It's not like he was trying to save the galaxy before... oh wait.

* Double subverted with Zant from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is normally calm and collected, but this is merely a facade, as he's actually completely nuts. During his boss battle, he reveals his true colors, but becomes even ''more'' insane as the battle goes on, until he goes apeshit and is reduced to a screaming, maniacal wreck.
