** During the Merethic Era, The Dragon Cult was an [[{{Precursors}} Atmoran]] religious sect led by the Dragon Priests, mortals granted some measure of power and authority by the dragons they worshiped. In Atmora, the Dragon Priests kept peace between the dragons and mankind. However, during or soon after the Atmoran migration to Tamriel, the Cult became much more [[ReligionOfEvil malevolent]] for reasons lost to history, but theorized to be related to Alduin's desire to TakeOverTheWorld instead of [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy it]]. The Cult's cruelty soon rose to rival that of the dragons themselves, and the Dragon War was fought to defeat both the Cult and Dragons. After Alduin's defeat, the Dragon Cult was driven underground, eventually eliminated entirely, and many cultists were cursed with undeath for their crimes. Following Alduin's return in the 4th Era, the Dragon Cult's followers are rising again, [[RiseFromYourGrave quite literally]], just like [[NotSoExtinct the dragons themselves]].

* Both Big Boss and Zero certainly qualify with regard to the MetalGear series. One became the leader who of a mercenary nation who start war and is the antagonist for the first two game, while Zero and his Patriots are the antagonist behind the other numbered games. All because the Boss died.

** According to the developer-written obscure text ''[[https://www.imperial-library.info/content/seven-fights-aldudagga The Seven Fights of the Aldudagga]]'', this is the case for Mehrunes Dagon, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]] who serves as either the BigBad or GreaterScopeVillain for several games in the series. According to the ''Seven Fights'', Dagon was once a kindly demon who attempted to protect parts of Mundus (the mortal world) from being eaten by [[BeastOfTheApocalypse Alduin]] at the end of every "kalpa" (cycle of time). Alduin found out and then [[IronicHell cursed Dagon]] into this state:
--> '''Alduin:''' ''"You I curse right here and right now! I take away your ability to jump and jump and jump and doom you to [the void] where you will not be able to leave except for auspicious days long between one and another and even so only through hard, hard work. And it will be this way, my little corner cutter, until you have [[OmnicidalManiac destroyed all that in the world]] which you have stolen from earlier kalpas, [[ImpossibleTask which is to say probably never at all!]]"''

But when you return once again to the manor in ''Key to Ravenhearst'', they have become psychopathic monsters that helped their [[EvilPatriarch evil grandfather]] to gain immortality by murdering dozens of people. Lampshaded by the Master Detective:

** Between the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollSIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] pull one of these if one considers [[TheFederation the Septim Empire]] as the "face" side of things and the [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion]] as the "heel." (Which, while the Empire has its flaws, is still very much the [[BlackAndGrayMorality "gray" to the "black"]] of the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName outright fascist]] Dominion.) After [[ChekhovsVolcano Red Mountain's eruption]], the Dominion influenced the Argonians to attack Morrowind and [[SlaveRace get revenge over millennia of slavery]] and to free the remaining illegal slaves there, as well as to capture Morrowind's valuable [[FantasyMetals Ebony deposits]]. The Dominion profited in further weakening the Empire by tearing away two more provinces (Argonia seceding and then capturing what was left of Morrowind).

*** Likewise, the Dominion convinces the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] of Elsweyr to abandon the Empire and join their side of the conflict as a client state through some clever manipulation (and maybe some outright BlatantLies).

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'':
** In the {{backstory}}, BigBad Dagoth Ur was, as the mortal Voryn Dagoth, a trusted advisor to the ancient Chimeri/Dunmeri hero, [[FounderOfTheKingdom Lord Nerevar]]. [[TheRashomon Though there are many different versions of events]] from WhenItAllBegan, most have Dagoth aiding Nerevar in infiltrating the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] Red Mountain stronghold. There, they found the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]] and the [[ArtifactOfDoom Tools of Kagrenac]], with which the Dwemer attempted to tap into the Heart's power but caused their entire race to disappear mysteriously. Dagoth was tasked with guarding the Tools while Nerevar consulted with his other advisors, the Tribunal, and his [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric patron]], Azura. However, Dagoth was corrupted by the Heart and Tools, using them to become a PhysicalGod. His physical form was destroyed by either Nerevar or the Tribunal depending on the telling, but he coalesced in the millennia that followed before returning. (One telling of the events has him as a FallenHero and WellIntentionedExtremist, refusing to let the Tribunal use the Tools after they murdered Nerevar, and only used them himself out of spite due to their betrayal.)
** In the ''Tribunal'' expansion, this is revealed to be the case for [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]] [[spoiler:Almalexia]], who serves as the expansion's BigBad. In ages past, she heroically defended Morrowind against Daedric, Akaviri, and Imperial threats. However, after she and the other Tribunes were cut off from the Heart of Lorkhan, the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin source of their divine power]], they've been steadily weakening. Finally, as a result of the main game's main quest, [[spoiler:she is cut off from the Heart permanently]]. The ''loss'' of her divine powers causes her to GoMadFromTheRevelation. [[spoiler:She kills fellow Tribune Sotha Sil, tries to kill [[PlayerCharacter the Nerevarine]], and plans to kill her other fellow Tribune Vivec]].

* This isn't a trope that Starscream in TransformersWarForCybertron would go down as he's more related to TheStarScream, but he starts out as an Autobot Scientist at the beginning of the Decepticon campaign. After Megatron bests his defenses, Starscream switches from the Autobots to the Decepticons. He later pulls his own trope off.
