* VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic gives us Darth Revan, a Jedi Knight who turned to TheDarkSide and became an EvilOverlord. Then it is revealed [[spoiler: that they are actually PlayerCharacter and therefore have undergone HeelFaceTurn. At least temporarly, because you may come back to the TheDarkSide. And canonicly, Revan saves the Republic, then later in VideoGame/TheOldRepublic goes evil ''again'', and then splits up into two personas - good one and evil one - just for them to merge into one, Light-Sided spirit]] As one FanFic put it:

* The Mad Doctor does this in ''[[VideoGame/EpicMickey2ThePowerOfTwo Epic Mickey 2]]''. After the events of [[EpicMickey the first game]], he claims to have reformed and offers to help the heroes take down the incoming threat, even though the heroes [[HeelFaceDoorSlam don't really trust him]]. And then, surprisingly, the BigBad is Gremlin Prescott. But THEN, it turns out he's not: Prescott was a pawn in [[EvilAllAlong the Mad Doctor's plan to escape from Wasteland]]. But then you can have the Mad Doctor do a real HeelFaceTurn in the end, if you pick the good ending.

--> What's the difference between the Jedi Revan and a tennis ball? A tennis ball doesn't change sides as often.

* In later chapters of ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', it becomes ''confusing'' to tell what side Ōtengu is on, to say the least. used to be Hiromasa's best bud and fight evil with him, but then betrays him and turns to evil himself. Later, he seems to reconcile with Hiromasa cue DuetBonding but ''then'' is still seen on the bad guys' team. Also, he might be super nice to Shoyō depending on whether you believe the winged monster leading him out of the mountains really is Ōtengu.

* ''Videogame/GargoylesQuest'': This seems to be the case with Firebrand as he is part of the Red Arremers who appeared as enemies but in the games he starred in, he was portrayed as a hero in his realm.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Eydis Fire-Eye, Steward of the Balmora Fighters Guild hall, proves to be one if you intend to complete both the Thieves Guild and Fighters Guild quest lines. The Fighters Guild and Thieves Guild have a clandestine war going on, as [[spoiler:the Fighters Guild faction leader and a few of his top lieutenants, including Eydis, are in the pocket of the [[TheSyndicate Camonna Tong]], Morrowind's native {{Mafia}}]]. One Thieves Guild quest has you bribing Eydis with a certain artifact to get her to [[HeelFaceTurn switch sides]]. However, if you then complete the Fighters Guild quest line, she'll view you as a threat once you reach a high enough rank [[spoiler: and attack, forcing you to kill her]].

** Meridia, a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] whose sphere is obscured to mortals, but is associated with LifeEnergy, [[LightIsNotgood Light]], and [[ProudBeauty Beauty]], is typically considered to be one of the few "good" Daedra throughout Tamriel. However, her actions in the series to date plant her squarely in this trope. In [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline one instance]], she'll be acting as the BigGood in defending mortal lives from hostile takeover by supernatural forces. Then in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion another]], she'll be [[GreaterScopevillain giving aid]] to [[BigBad a being]] who seeks to overthrow the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] and [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil enslave]] the races of Men. Ultimately, whatever actions Meridia takes are going to be [[ItsAllAboutMe for her benefit, not anyone else's]]. It just so happens that, especially with her extreme ''hatred'' of anything undead, her actions come off as benevolent toward mortals more often than not.

*** Strangely enough it's a bit of a subversion in Z3. [[spoiler: As it was more of a case of {{Superdickery}} on Char's part to get the heroes against Neo Zeron and to prevent them from dropping Axis]]. After that he joins the heroes again, presumably for good this time.

** Raiden starts off as the BigGood of the Forces of Light, but after he CameBackWrong in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception'', he became [[FaceHeelTurn Dark Raiden]], only to turn good at [[spoiler:the end of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'', when he sends a message to his past self in a last-ditch attempt to stop [{VideoGame/MortalKombat9 Shao Kahn from destroying all of reality]], creating an alternate timeline. By the end of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', he's back again in his Dark Raiden persona after absorbing Shinnok's powers and purifying the Jinsei (Earthrealm's life-force), with an intent to go on a warpath to attack and destroy other realms (and possibly conquer them) if they dare to invade Earthrealm.]]
