* Bakura in ''Anime/YuGiOh''. Oh look, a SixthRanger. Wait, he's actually a bad guy? Well, in fact, that was his SuperpoweredEvilSide, similar to Yugi's! Oh crap, Yami Bakura has returned! Wait, [[TokenEvilTeammate he's helping them?]] [[spoiler:Oops. It was all his plan to defeat Pharaoh Atem in an RPG.]]

* If you're a female character in any of the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' series and you're becoming close to one or more of the heroines, be prepared to spend some time on the Revolving Door. Just ask [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Kaoru, Michiru]], [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Setsuna]], [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Ellen]] and now [[Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure Regina]].

* For being an anime about wrestlers, happens VERY rarely in ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' and ''Anime/UltimateMuscle''. The only three examples out there are Neptuneman, Sunshine, and Ashuraman. The latter two started out as Akuma Choujin in the Golden Mask arc and were villains during the Dream Tournament arc, but Sunshine [[AffablyEvil always had a soft spot for displays of friendship]] and Ashuraman had [[NobleDemon strong morals for a prince of the underworld.]] After Sunshine is killed by THAT arc's BigBad, Ashuraman does everything he can to help out the heroes. Later, in UltimateMuscle, Sunshine makes a return as the instructor for two new Akuma Choujin, [[LoveMakesYouEvil and his motivation was because his time as an Akuma Choujin was the only time he had genuine friends.]] Much later, during the Demon Seed arc, Ashuraman goes crazy again [[SelfFulfillingProphecy after his son finds out he's a murderous demon and kills his mother as a result, causing Ashuraman to kill him.]] Ashuraman then returns to his old ways as well.
** Neptuneman's the king of this, however. Initially a Seiji (Justice) Choujin, he decides nobody's enough of a challenge for him. So he makes a DealWithTheDevil, well, King Neptune, to help him return wrestling to its bloody and archaic roots. During the Dream Tournament arc, he is ''the'' BigBad, merciless and cruel, although he eventually admits defeat. Afterwards, during the Throne arc, he helps Kinnikuman's team during the final match, culminating in a HeroicSacrifice. Sounds great right? WRONG!!! In UltimateMuscle's latest arc, he's back to his old ways and ripping the faces off his opponents, along with [[BewareTheCuteOnes causing a sweet and honest character to become completely insane and willing to kill his ''best friends'' without any hesitation.]] Whether or not Neptuneman is again the BigBad is unknown, considering there's an equally evil team out there [[EvilVersusEvil they might end up fighting.]]

* [[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Beato]]. Gets rather {{Moe}} at points, has a [[MindGameShip very weird]] {{Tsundere}}-ish relationship with Battler, and has a lot of PetTheDog moments, some going so far as to resemble a HeroicSacrifice when she's faced with [[spoiler:Eva-Beatrice]]. She appears to be aware of this trope, and will joyfully trip back and forth across it just for the lulz.

* Ryo Mashiba from ''HajimeNoIppo'' is introduced as a straight up heel. He gets somewhat better after his loss against Ippo, even getting his own fandom. Then, he fights Ryuuhei Sawamura, who's not only ''even worse'' than him but also tried to hurt Mashibas sister. In the fight, he completely loses the veneer of humanity he had, gloats over said fact and that he silenced ''his own fandom'' with his terrible actions, and goes against the rules so bad that he's ''disqualified''. The next time we see him in a fight, he refuses to cheat despite being angrier than a thousand devils (since his opponent ''is'' cheating) and even grudgingly throws his boxing gloves to the crowd.

* Evangeline A.K. [=McDowell=] from ''MahouSenseiNegima'' is more or less trapped in the revolving door, appearing first as the villain, then as the EleventhHourSuperpower, then mostly remaining the "evil" good. Being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold does not help defining her either. No matter which side she's on, she'll [[NobleDemon stridently insist she's as evil as ever]].

* Vegeta from ''DragonBallZ''. First he was a villain, then he [[HeelFaceTurn joined Goku]] and the other Z Fighters in the fight against Freeza... then he turned ''back'' into a villain in a NotBrainwashed moment during the Majin Buu saga... and then became a good guy once again. Then he ''was'' brainwashed and fused with the new BigBad, Baby. Then he was good again. The series ended before he could rotate any more.

* Depending on the timeline and her current mental state, Homura of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' can be just about anywhere on the spectrum. She starts as more or less heroic, but eventually grows into a TragicHero suffering from LoveMakesYouEvil. At times, her ruthless apathy towards the others veers into VillainProtagonist levels. [[spoiler: Once Madoka makes her wish and sets Homura free of her GroundhogDayLoop, Homura became heroic again... until TheMovie revealed just [[GodOfEvil what depths she was willing to sink to.]]]]

** Kyoko is a more straightforward example of this trope. Starting out as an idealistic MagicalGirl, her father [[GoMadFromTheRevelation going mad from the revelation]] {{broke|n bird}} her and turned her into a selfish loner who picks fights with other and has a SocialDarwinist philosophy. Her interactions with Sayaka help her grow into a more heroic, if not [[KnightInSourArmor cynical]], attitude, and [[spoiler:she ends the series on good terms with her former mentor, Mami]].

** Gets even worse when near the end [[spoiler: s/he manages to absorb Ashura, and becomes the BigBad]], however this is reverted in a few chapters later [[spoiler: when his/her will starts to falter, allowing Ashura to take control again and Chrona ultimately helps the good guys in the finale, by sealing herself/himself and Ashura inside the moon for good]].

Added DiffLines:

* Soko from ''Manga/AoNoFuuin'', though not to the extreme as most other examples. Due to her [[ChildOfTwoWorlds status]], she keeps feeling torn between the humans and the Oni. She often, almost instinctively, saves her fellow Oni from the humans when they are attacked, but is overall opposed to creating more Oni and returns to the humans' side to continue to reach [[IJustWantToBeNormal her goal]].

* Sora from ''HackSign'' starts off as a wandering player killer, but from there begins to help out whoever he thinks will offer the most interesting results. By the end of the series he's joined up with every faction at least once. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that's he's [[spoiler:a fourth grader]] playing for fun, and since it's just a game there's no real consequences to anything he does. [[spoiler:At least until he angers one powerful person too many...]]
