** ComicBook/TheFalcon and Doc Samson appear as part of Code Red, a team of government-sponsored superheroes who act in opposition to the Avengers. In the comics, the Falcon is ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's sidekick and a longtime member of the Avengers himself, while Doc Samson is an ally of the Hulk. Partially justified though, since it turns out they were [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] by the ComicBook/RedSkull. (And both of them ''have'' had notable BrainwashedAndCrazy stories in the comics; in Falcon's case at the hands of the Skull.)

* While Sea Rogue from ''WesternAnimation/{{TUGS}}'' was a friend of the Star Tugs who was [[ForcedIntoEvil forced against his will to steal cargo for pirates or they'd sink his uncle]], in the CutAndPasteTranslation, ''Salty's Lighthouse'', he became a villain who liked to steal cargo.

* Anyone familiar with Link, the hero of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', knows he's consistently a brave, humble, all around heroic person who saves the land of Hyrule and its princess without expecting anything in return. People familiar with Link now will probably be surprised that in the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'' cartoon that came after the NES games, he's the complete opposite. This Link was lazy, self-centered, whiny and is only motivated by getting Zelda to kiss him.

** Donkey Kong is also more dangerous and antagonistic than he is in the games, where he's mostly a good guy with some impulse control issues - even in [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong the original game]], he was an AntiVillain who did what he did because his owner abused him.

** [[spoiler:Sapphire Stagg, the good-natured love interest of Metamorpho in the comics, who is here depicted as very much similar in nature to her corrupt father, Simon Stagg.]]
** [[spoiler:Harvey Dent, who is usually a man of justice and a big supporter of Batman (at least before [[FaceHeelTurn his transformation into Two-Face]]), now a hater of Batman who teams up with Anarky to kill him and hires Deathstroke to take down Batman, to the list.]]

*** This trope is the reason why Aresia, Tsukuri, Hro Talak, Galatea, and the Ultimen are {{Exp|y}}ies as DC wouldn't allow either woman who's been codenamed [[ComicBook/InfinityInc Fury]] to attempt to commit {{Gendercide}} (Aresia), ComicBook/{{Katana}} to be party to said Gendercide (Tsukuri), ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} to be willing to blow up the Earth to help Thanagar win a war (Hro Talak), ComicBook/PowerGirl to be a hitwoman for ComicBook/AmandaWaller (Galatea), or the {{Canon Foreigner}}s and {{Canon Immigrant}}s of the WesternAnimation/SuperFriends (namely Samurai, Black Vulcan, and the ComicBook/WonderTwins) to attempt to kill members of the League (the Ultimen, barring Apache Chief expy Long Shadow, who still retained his sanity and tried to stop it).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'':



** One example is the BigBad Anarky. In the comics, Anarky was depicted as twelve year old Lonnie Machin, a political anti-government activist and altruist who saw humanity as naturally good, but with consumerism and big government getting in the way. He wasn't a villain more than he was an anti-hero who even Batman acknowledged was well intentioned but misguided. Beware's Anarky is a self-diagnosed sociopath and aimless terrorist whose only difference between him and The Joker is name and chess theme.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueAction'': Toyman is usually a villain, but what's surprising is which one is the villain; it's Hiro Okumara, aka the HEROIC Toyman, who now instead of a teen hero is an adult villain like Winslow Shotts.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', Ren wasn't exactly the nicest guy around, but he did have [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a softer side]]. In ''Adult Party Cartoon'', however, his worst qualities became more prominent, his HiddenHeartOfGold was seriously played down, and he sunk to depths never explored by his older counterpart.
* ''{{Saban's Adventures of the Little Mermaid}},'' an adaptation of ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' fairy tale that [[FollowTheLeader draws heavily]] from [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid the Disney version]], also makes the Sea-Witch, [[NamedByTheAdaptation Hedwig]], a villain out for power. The prince's betrothed, [[NamedByTheAdaptation Cecily]], is also [[RichBitch an antagonist]], but unlike in the Disney version, they're not [[CompositeCharacter the same person]].
