* ''Comicbook/LaffALympics'': Dread Baron was already a villain in the cartoon but he never tried to double-cross any of his own teammates there. In "The Meet at Mount Ono", when he finds out the Laff-a-Lympic officials placed a chest full of money at the top of the titular mount to be shared among the members of the team that wins the climbing contest, he tries to take the money for himself and isn't above endangering the life of the Rotten athlete originally chosen to represent his team during the contest.

** ''ComicBook/TheTransformersPunishment'' gave this treatment to Sandstorm. In the cartoon Sandstorm was a pacifist who's planet was dragged into the conflict. He was quick to befriend people and even palled around with the Decepticon traitor Octane for a time. Most comics place him as a member of the Wreckers, a crack team of Autobot elite soldiers; not a pacifist anymore but not a full on villain. In Punishment he's the BigBad of the story; having finally snapped in the post war peace he becomes a serial killer hunting down Autobots and Decepticons accused of war crimes, including the Dinobots, and burning them to death.

** The residents of Themyscira has always had its share of misogynists and {{Straw Feminist}}s, but their attitude had gradually descended over the years from an isolationist community who just wanted to keep men away, to man-hates with a few bad apples, to having a legit excuse for hating men (being the spirits of women who were murdered by abusive spouses), to the New 52, where they have truly become evil, [[ConceiveAndKill seducing and murdering men in order to reproduce]] and engaging in child slave trading.

* In the ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' comics, Loki is generally depicted as an evil god (though some individual writers have made him more of an AntiVillain), but in the original Norse mythology he's a much more ambiguous figure, usually taking the role of TheTrickster.

** IDW's version of Rattrap, particularly in ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersWindblade Windblade]]'', but also present in [[ComicBook/TheTransformersRobotsinDisguise Robots in Disguise]]. His ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' counterpart was a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who could be counted on to do the right thing, albeit complaining all the time. IDW's version? A selfish, backstabbing, amoral creep who plays TheStarscream to Starscream himself.
