Basic Trope: An admirable character takes a much darker turn in personality from bad influence.
- Straight: Molly was once a sweet girl until she started hanging out with Antwan. From there, she started becoming increasingly more unpleasant.
- Exaggerated: Sweet little Molly's personality turned complete 180 and she turned into a devious bully in only a few weeks.
- Downplayed: While Molly does retain her innocent personality, she does become a bit mischievous at times.
- Justified: Before Molly came along, Antwan himself used to be a nice person until he met a few gang members. He used that to teach Molly everything bad thing he knows.
- Subverted: Molly hangs out with Antwan, but her innocent personality is unchanged.
- Double Subverted: Outside she's unchanged, but she is unpleasant on the inside.
- Parodied: Molly is a sweet and innocent Purity Sue who can do no wrong at first, but as soon as she meets Antwan she tosses it out the window and becomes a dark and evil Goth in under two seconds.
- Zigzagged: Antwan's influence gives Molly a Split Personality. One side is her old self, while the other is under Antwan's influence.
- Averted: Molly surprisingly does not become a bad person from hanging out with Antwan.
- Enforced: "The audience dislikes Molly's pureness, we must make her more evil!".
- Lampshaded: "Whatever happened to that sweet girl we once knew? I never thought she would go down this bad."
- Invoked: Molly was curious about how Antwan acts the way he does.
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: Molly does not like doing bad or naughty stuff for the sake of being cool or popular.
- Implied: While currently Molly behaves unpleasantly, the audience gets to know that she wasn't always like that.
- Discussed: "Remember, Molly, watch out not to approach wrong guys. In no time you'll find yourself becoming just like them: cursing, smoking, drinking, and engaging in anti-social acts."
- Conversed: "Oh my, they think it's so easy to have someone's personality overhauled? Like, after a few dates with some delinquent, a goody-two-shoes girl will turn into an edgy hoodlum?"
