* 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.
** Although he usually only stays with Mario until the BigBad is gone.

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.

* Kain of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' is pretty often used as an example, though all his turns were due to mind control by the real villain. (It's still discussed, if his first HeelFaceTurn is an act or real and he gets controlled again later) And it happened only twice. So, mainly it's a case of NeverLiveItDown.

** ''CaptainSNES'' of course uses the trope again, as not only he is touched by the sovereign of sorrow, he is also in love with Rosa (pretty canonically) which the Drab Lord amplified sufficiently as to make him his minion. Kain is referred to here in DungeonsAndDragons terms as "the reason you don't make Charisma your DumpStat", and its implied that he will fall for ''any'' charm person spell. ''Any''.

** Taken on full throttle in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 3'' if you pick [[MsFanservice Selena Recital]] as the protagonist, who in the beginning of her game tends to switch factions. Your hero just pulls multiple HeelFaceRevolvingDoor, so sit back and enjoy as you blast the hell outta those [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam UC Gundam]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundams]], etc... sometimes alongside the likes of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Rau Le Creuset]]... and then, she goes to join the heroes ''again'', later ''switch sides again'', and so on, until she joins the Alpha Numbers for good.
