[[spoiler: Both characters are motivated to better themselves after their teammates are killed by a more powerful being that dismissed them as a weakling. And while Infinite wants to increase his power for his own sake, the Avatar wants to become stronger to protect his friends and save the world.]]

In the [[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones final part of the trilogy]], both characters return, with the [[spoiler:resurrected]] Vizier having taken over his Maharajah's kingdom as well as the Prince's home city just to become immortal. The Old Man demonstrates loyalty the Vizier hasn't by [[spoiler:rallying Babylon's remaining citizens to attack the Vizier's army]] in order to help the Prince in bringing his EvilCounterpart down.

* In the ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' expansion ''Enemy Within'', an evil organization called EXALT is revealed to be secretly in league with the aliens, although they have their own mysterious goals. Their operatives use the same tactics as your own XCOM soldiers, and their weapons are identical in stats (but less boxy) to your own firearms and laser weapons (EXALT never develops plasma). Like your soldiers, EXALT uses [[GreyGoo Meld]] to enhance their operatives, although they never build [[PoweredArmor MEC Troopers]]. Even their HQ's location is opposite to yours. The XCOM base is deep underground, while the EXALT HQ is on top of a skyscraper. When storming it, your soldiers find a hologlobe identical to yours but red in color, although their HQ is more aesthetic than functional in stark contrast to the XCOM base.

*** The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]] are one to both the [[AncientOrderOfProtectors Blades]] ([[StateSec militant]] [[TheOrder orders]] with [[SecretPolice espionage responsibilities]]) and to the [[MagicalSociety Psijic Order]] (Aldmeri orders who [[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic seek immense magical knowledge]]). Naturally, they are major enemies to both groups, with the Thalmor having hunted the Blades to near-elimination and the Psijic Order withdrawing almost entirely from Tamriellic affairs (in addition to making their entire home island disappear).

** Nina Cortex was recreated into one for Coco Bandicoot in the Radical Entertainment developed games. Both act as right hand girls and {{Kid Sidekick}}s to Cortex and Crash respectively, however while Coco is bubbly, altruistic and looks up to her older brother, Nina is snide and conniving, and considers herself superior to her uncle.

** From ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', there's the Thieves Guild, which is definitely shady, but has elements of GentlemanThief and JustLikeRobinHood, and the Cammona Tong, a xenophobic Dunmer nationalist crime syndicate that despises the Empire and has absolutely no code of honor.
** Also from ''Morrowind'', there's the Morag Tong, an underhanded, though {{noble|Demon}} assassinís guild, and the Dark Brotherhood, an organization of murderous scumbags who will kill anyone if the price is right, or just to appease their "god".
** Necromancers in Tamriel have always been portrayed in a "dark grey" light. The Order of the Black Worm from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', however, show just how evil and depraved they can be if they want to. It doesn't help that the Order's leader is an OmnicidalManiac.
** The [[BlandNameProduct Blackwood mercenaries]] in ''Oblivion'' become evil counterpart to the Fighter's Guild.
** The ''Dragonborn'' expansion to ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' reveals that the Dragonborn has one in the ''First'' Dragonborn, an undead [[ReligionOfEvil Dragon-Priest]] who once ruled over Solstheim and now seeks to return to life.
** Also in ''Skyrim'', the Thieves Guild have somewhat become this to the Dark Brotherhood, maintaining their traditional mutually beneficial working relationship and sharing information on prospective jobs with each other, with the understanding that they'll not try to kill people during robberies, if the Dark Brotherhood don't rob people during assassinations.
