* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'': Depending on how you see the morality of the situation, [[spoiler: Ava agreeing to let Sara sever her from TOM's control rather than obeying TOM's instructions to restrain Sara]] can be seen as this. In fairness, [[spoiler: she never made any secret of how she felt about her mission - it seems that TOM was just hoping that when the time came, she ''wouldn't'' perform this trope after all.]]

** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' [[UpdatedRerelease Golden]], ''the protagonist himself'' can go through one if he makes friends with [[spoiler: Tohru Adachi]] before realizing he's the killer, [[spoiler: confronts him (instead of keeping his thoughts to himself]] and ''then'' [[spoiler: aids Adachi via destroying crucial evidence.]] [[spoiler: This unlocks the "Accomplice ending": it has Adachi becoming a KarmaHoudini for the murders and even ''taunting the protagonist'' before he (the MC) leaves Inaba.]] Doing so actually gives a decent reward for a NewGamePlus. At the very least, it's much more cost effetive than what you get in the true ending.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'':
** Hardin and his cronies from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem]]''. In ''[[UpdatedRerelease New Mystery of the Emblem]]'', his cronies can be [[HeelFaceTurn re-recruited]]. [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Hardin]] himself, however, cannot.
** Alvis from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' though he was more of an AloofAlly to your party.

** While it's very common for enemy units to defect to your side in battle, it's far rarer for player units to turn against you... but it does happen.
*** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'', if you try to have Jill fight her father Shihiram without an A support with Mist or a B support with Lethe, she will be unable to fight her father and defect back to Daein. Fortunately, you can get her to return to you if she has a B support with Mist.
*** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn'', during the Dawn Brigade's first chapter in part 3, if Lethe or Mordecai talk to Zihark, they will convince him to defect to the Laguz Alliance. Fortunately, this means you can use him in the Greil Mercenaries chapters, and he returns for the endgame. Unfortunately, the Dawn Brigade probably needs him more.
*** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem]]'', if you start killing Gra soldiers after recruiting Sheena and Samson, they will turn on you. Unlike Jill and Zihark, you're not getting them back.

** 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!]]"''
