** 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.

* Sorbet in ''MagicalStarsign'' fakes one as part of an elaborate plan to trick the Big Bad, and it's so convincing that even your party falls for it...unfortunately, you waltz in just as her plan is about to come to fruition.

* ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'': someone is doing one of these every five minutes. We have Siegfried, who did a Face to Heel (before the series even started) to Face to Heel to Face to WellIntentionedExtremist Heel...and then back to Face again. Then there's Yun-Seong, who isn't all the way there yet, but he's getting there. Raphael, who did a Face Heel turn from 2 to 3, and did a Heel/Worse Heel turn from 3 to 4. Sophitia has done this in 4: arguably she has a good reason, but as she has been infused with the power of Soul Edge, there's nothing saying that she might not like this state of affairs later on. Then you've got Pyrrha, who went from Face to Heel (somewhat against her will) and then back to Face, and then BACK to Heel, before finally settling on Face.
