Sargeras in World of Warcraft (or more generally, the Warcraft universe) is another prime example. His existence as a Titan and the endless conflict between them and the Old Gods eventually made him lose faith and turn him corrupt.

Cut this for Conversation in the Main Page, being "arguable", and provoking an Edit War. When re-adding, please write the example in a way that asserts it is an example and does not contain self-contradictions. If it isn't an example, then don't add it.

  • Frozen: Played with in "Let It Go", wherein Arendelle Queen Elsa runs away from her kingdom soon after her ice powers are discovered by the public. At which point after hiding in the northern mountain, she decides to live her life alone by building herself an ice palace. It's unclear whether if it's this trope or a case of her transition into a Byronic Heroine.
    • Word of God says it was the former as Elsa was planned to be a villain, but Idina Menzel's performance of Let it Go was considered so good that they changed the plot and it became the latter.

For the record, the editor pushing the "Elsa is evil" line in all their edits has been suspended because they seemed to be on an agenda.

Wouldn't Harvey dent's line from The Dark Knight (You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain) be a better page quote?
