** Hoi Kow Loon from Might Gaine is in his home series nothing more than a malevolent crime boss. Amoral and evil enough to be a force to be reckoned with, sure, but that's about it. However, if you go up against him with Ange in Stage 18, it also turns out that he's a racist, claiming all Norma to be scum of the Earth despite presumably not being from any of the First Nations, but from ''China.''

** The [[Anime/CrossAnge Mana users]], save special cases like Momoka are already infamous for their treatment of the Norma. However, they also dislike foreigners outside the Founding Nations and any attempt to enter their territory is met with their army of MechaMooks.

* [[ComicBook/TwoFace Harvey Dent]] is an unusual case in the DS version of ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Batman: The Video Game]]''. While he became the villain Two-Face in all continuities, he was originally an honest district attorney. While playable as both, he is marked as a villain as Two-Face and pre-scarring Harvey.
** Much like in ''Film/IronMan3'' Aldrich Killian in ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Marvel Superheroes]]'' is a much nastier character than he was in the comics.

However, if you go up against him with Ange in Stage 18, it also turns out that he's a racist SOB, basically claiming all Norma to be scum of the Earth despite presumably not being from any of the First Nations, but from ''China.'' He has no good reason to be a bigot, but here he is being one anyway, upgrading him from simply being evil to also being a racist shitstain.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Smithers is a timid, soft-spoken, vanilla sycophant who happens to have a weird fetish for his boss Mr. Burns. He never does anything in the same galaxy as rob a jewelry store and kidnap Maggie (with frequent bouts of manaiacal cackling) like he did in [[VideoGame/TheSimpsons the Konami arcade game]].

* In ''VideoGame/TazWanted'', the BigBad is revealed to be none other than [[spoiler: Tweety Bird]], a well-known ''heroic'' character among the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''. In the game, he's attempting to ''kill'' Taz, take his country Tasmania over, and construct an amusement park over it to gain profit.

** A lesser known example comes in the form of the Mission 4 boss in the NES version of ''Double Dragon III''. He resembles one of the Urquidez brothers from the arcade version of the game (specifically Sunny), who were playable characters in that version of the game, but unlike Chin and Ranzou, he never becomes part of the Lee brothers' party after being defeated.

** Most incarnations of [[spoiler: Thomas Wayne]] were good people in a corrupt city, but here, [[spoiler: while Bruce remembered Thomas fondly, Thomas himself was more ruthless, being in league with [[TheDon Carmine Falcone]] and [[MayorPain Hamilton Hill]], and even driving Esther Cobblepot into insanity and locking her up in Arkham just so he could get a hold of land the Cobblepots own to build a tower.]]

** The original game does an admittedly poor job of showing at the end that ''none'' of the characters are actual villains, and their behavior in the game is a reflection of Wonderland itself being out of whack. The sequel makes this a touch clearer, both because Alice's problems have changed enough we can see the shifting of roles and by explaining enough of the backstory to justify the existence and actions of the original's BigBad.
