* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'': If you do things a certain way, [[DragonRider Jill]] can change sides ''five'' times across the two games she's in (''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''). That's one more than Kain up there!
** That goes double for Naesala, who seems to have this as a basic character trait. Just in the first game he works for Daein, sells a childhood friend to a Begnion noble, if you manage to talk to him in one chapter (almost a must, as he's near impossible to kill) he decides to go neutral, then he somewhat grudgingly starts helping Crimea toward the end. The second game sees him helping the Laguz Alliance, selling them out to Begnion, and then acting as a bodyguard for the Apostle when she goes to support the Laguz Alliance! No one is quite sure what side, if any, he's really on by the time he's a playable character and more than one doesn't really care as long as they get to kill him.
*** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Radiant Dawn'' by Tibarn, of all people.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe:'' Erik, a minor character changes sides throughout both games. First in the backstory of ''Blazing Sword'', Erik was a friend of Eliwood, and Hector, but his jealously led to him joining with his father in turning against Lycia. Then after his father abandons him, Erik feels remorse over his actions, and cleans up his act as his father's successor. By ''Binding Blade'', Erik, despite people's trust, in him joins up with the invading Bern Empire out of the belief Lycia has no chance of opposing Bern.

* Captain Qwark of ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''. Initially, he was a hero, albeit a loud and boisterous one. Then, he became a villainous has-been. Then, he got his shot at being the BigBad. Then, he changed his mind ans went back to being a boisterous hero. While he's treated as the ButtMonkey and TheFriendNobodyLikes among the good guys, he's been a hero consistently since the series made the jump to the PlayStation3 and beyond.

* Bowser in the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise, especially in the [=RPGs=]. He's been an EnemyMine so often--to say nothing of when he [[GoKartingWithBowser Goes Karting With Mario]]--that it's hard to say just ''whose'' side he's on anymore.

Bowser himself often cites EvilVersusOblivion when teaming up with Mario; he wants to ''rule'' the Mushroom Kingdom, whereas the {{Big Bad}}s want to ''destroy'' it. Depending on the game, it's hard to tell how much of that is an act and how much is sincere.
