Posted on November 30, by Scott Alexander I. If the world was created by the Invisible Hand, who is good, how did it come to contain so much that is evil? Can he expect to get rich? No — if Google stock was underpriced ie you could easily get rich by buying Google stockthen everyone smart enough to notice would buy it.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Subverted in episode Played straight for Kyoko in episode 7. Played straight, however, in Rebellion. Homura's infatuation with Madoka, causes her to trick her into appearing again, so she can steal her powers of godhood and become the devil.
She does this to create a new perfect world where she believes Madoka will be happy even though Madoka didn't want any of it and will always be by her side. The mobile app Magia Record reveals how Nagisa Momoe turned into the witch Charlotte, who famously and memeticially bit Mami's head off.
Her magical girl idol and her mother were both murdered by a serial killer, and the resulting trauma caused her to witch out. Almost every villain gets at least a chapter for this.
Some are a little sad, some will leave you temporarily cheering for the villain until you remember that every single one aims to wipe out all life as we know it.
One episode presents the back-story of Makoto Isshiki, an Evil Albino who is a cold-hearted seducer and major jerk to everyone else. It shows him as a cute and kind boy who Heart of darkness madness vs sanity wanted to find his parents. Then, one day he admitted to himself what he really wasand his flashback ends with him getting an Important Haircut and taking on his nasty personality.
Romeo X Juliet practically drops it line for line with the episode "Darkness: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: The 8th and final Parallel Works video is one of these for Lordgenome.
Midora starts to reminisce over his past during his battle with Ichiryu. The flashback chapters reveal how a nameless baby born to be fed to wild pigs eventually became one of the most powerful and dreaded beings on the planet.
The flashback arc in both incarnations of Trigun seems at first to be the background for the highly mysterious lead, but it's even more about the Start Of Darkness for the Big Badhis Evil Twin.

His manga reason made Vash try to kill himself twice and laugh hysterically when he thought he'd accidentally killed Rem! Some of adult Vash's ideals are stuff Knives said as a kid.
Legato also gets one of these, in the manga. Unusually, it has a very upbeat ending — because psychotically serving an Omnicidal Maniac who doesn't really give a damn about you is so much better than being raped to death by the guy who owns you. Knives didn't just spare him, he even asked his name!
And nameless-boy-who-would-become-Legato goes stumbling after him naked and weeping for joy. Livio has one, too, although his is complicated by the fact that first he got a psychotic alternate personality, and then later he was acquired by the Eye of Michael and turned into a killing machine in his own right.
Anime Wolfwood also gets one. Manga Wolfwood just gets back story snippets. But because the anime is Lighter and FluffierWolfwood's philosophical position has a lot less pull there, so he needs a more clear-cut 'reason' to think the way he does.
Sort of a weird case because the flashback is almost entirely upbeat-ish; most of the tragic stuff is Time Skipped over.
Only the final push where the captain shoots Kyousuke because he was supposedly going to destroy the world, but the assassination attempt fails to kill him and turns him evilis actually shown.
And in both cases enough self-hatred to stage really stupid, selfish Thanatos Gambits.

He serves as a minor antagonist in the first season, a major antagonist in the second season, one of the main antagonists in the third season (specifically in the final episodes of the Mad City arc). He later becomes the main.
Few things are worse (or scarier) than palpitations that come every few seconds and won’t seem to go away. It feels like your heart is about to give up. Madness in Heart of Darkness. Imagine a world where everything you knew to be true suddenly wasn't, a world where black is white and white is black.
A world where up is down and down is up. Worse, a world where good is evil and evil is good. It's enough to drive a person insane.
That is what happens in Joseph Conrad's novella, Heart of Darkness. Illusion Vs Reality – The Causticity of Illusion - Reality is the state of the world of how it really is, whereas an illusion is erroneous interpretation of reality.
