* This is the defining moment for Gabriel the protagonist of ''Manga/GabrielDropOut'', who at the very beginning of the first episode, was a sweet, hardworking, respectable and idealistic angel who wanted nothing less, then to spread as much happiness as she could... until she discovers VideoGames a few minutes into the first episode. Next time we see her, she has turned into the rude, lazy, cynical, and apathetic slob she will be for the rest of the show, even going so far as to refer to herself as a ''FallenAngel''.

* Guts from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. After the horrible events of the Eclipse that all but broke him, he spends two years as a ByronicHero who keeps everyone distant from him and is focused solely on killing as many Apostles as he can as he seeks vengeance against the God Hand and Griffith in particular. It is only after reconnecting with Casca, the only other survivor of the Eclipse, that he begins to grow out of this, but this comes at the cost of harboring a pretty horrific EnemyWithin.

*** Tobi, the Masked Man, who is revealed to be [[spoiler:Uchiha Obito]].
*** [[NiceGuy Iruka]] of all people takes one in The Sixth movie. Set after a battle with Akatsuki, some of the Konona 11's parents are offering to recommend to Tsunade that they get promoted to Jonins for their efforts. Naruto seeing this goes to him as he's the closest thing Naruto has to a family and asks if he could do the same. Iruka coldly shoots him down and tells him he won't get special treatment just cause he saved the Village from Pein not even offering to let him get promoted to Chunin or give him a reason why he can't do that.

** This happens to [[{{Badass}} Vegeta]] [[spoiler: after his FaceHeelTurn]].
** Whenever Goten and Trunks [[FusionDance fuse into Gotenks]], their worst traits combine to make a SmugSuper child whose immature showboating is in stark contrast to the individual children, who at least realize when it's time to get serious.
** Chichi's MamaBear tendencies make her do this at the end of the Saiyan Saga, where she declares the world can be destroyed for all she cares and refuses to show Goku any sympathy after he's outright crippled as she blames him for getting Gohan involved. She tones down by the Android and Buu Sagas.
** ''Every time'' Majin Buu transforms. He goes from the child-like and misguided Fat Buu, to the cruel and cunning Super Buu, to the bat shit crazy Kid Buu. He also becomes stronger the more of a jerk he becomes.

** This happens big-time to [[{{Badass}} [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Vegeta]] [[spoiler: after during his FaceHeelTurn]].
FaceHeelTurn in the Buu Saga, where he gives into Babidi's magic for the sole purpose of forcing Goku to fight him. While they are in the middle of a crisis. It's worth noting that in doing this he very nearly causes the world to end, as it leads to the unleashing of the below mentioned [[TheDreaded Buu]].
** Whenever Goten and Trunks [[FusionDance fuse into Gotenks]], their worst traits combine to make a SmugSuper child whose immature showboating is in stark contrast to the individual children, who both of whom at least realize when it's time to get serious.
** Chichi's Chi-Chi's MamaBear tendencies make her do this at the end of the Saiyan Saga, where she declares the world can be destroyed for all she cares and refuses to show Goku any sympathy after he's outright crippled injured, as she blames him for getting their son Gohan involved. She tones down by the Android Thankfully this is temporary and Buu Sagas.
she chills out before long, going back to being a devoted wife and mother.
** ''Every time'' Majin Buu transforms. He goes from the child-like and ultimately misguided Fat Buu, to the cruel and cunning Super Buu, to the bat shit [[OmnicidalManiac batshit crazy Kid Buu.Buu]]. He also becomes stronger the more of a jerk he becomes.

* Arguably, Medaka of ''Manga/MedakaBox''. Since [[BiggerBad Ajimu]] has introduced five "''normal''" people to her, Medaka no longer views Zenkichi as someone special to her since he couldn't pass the first trial of a test she gave the normals. Then she actively tries to turn him into her enemy by acting cold and offensive just so she can see value in him again. Kind of sad considering it's a combination of her abnormality and her personality that causes her change like this since she can't understand failure or things from a "weak" perspective. She even goes as far as [[spoiler:using an abnormality that makes her weaker than Zenkichi and goes all out in a fight against him. Since Zenkichi isn't really willing to fight her at this point she mops the floor with him. However the abnormality she used is a "perfected version" of Kumagawa's Bookmaker and isn't meant for fighting, but for allowing the person affected to feel the world from the opponents perspective.]]

* It's stated evolution changes a ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'''s personality in the anime and this is most noticeable with Charizard. As a Charmander he was overall a nice Pokemon, maybe even one of the [[NiceGuy nicest]] Ash owned in the Original Series, but when he evolved into a Charmeleon he TookALevelInJerkass. He stopped listening to Ash and was more violent, and it didn't get any better when he evolved again. After Ash thawed him out when he was frozen by Poliwrath, he regained his loyalty to Ash, and with gradual character development by his reappearance in Unova he was as kind as he was as a Charmander.

* Most of the former NERV officers after the TimeSkip in the third ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', especially Ritsuko. Somewhat justified though since the reason everyone is now so hostile towards Shinji is because [[spoiler: he almost destroyed the world.]]
