** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' reveals that [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], creatures of [[DragonsAreDemonic aggression and domination]] for whom it's [[AlwaysChaoticEvil in their blood to be cruel and contemptuous]], are capable of this. Some dragons are known to have been capable of suppressing their desire to dominate and have allied themselves with mortals, such as Nafaalilargus and Paarthurnax. Paarthurnax was, in fact, one of [[BigBad Alduin]] the [[BeastOfTheApocalypse World Eater]]'s chief lieutenants prior to his Face-turn thousands of years prior. He has spent the time since instructing mortals to use the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]], the draconic LanguageOfMagic, while waiting for [[SealedEvilInACan Alduin's inevitable return]].

* Happens in every ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' game, sometimes more frequently than others. Usually you have to talk to the recruitable enemy with a certain character, but sometimes a former villain will automatically join your side. ''Binding Blade'' had Miledy and Douglas, ''Sword of Flame'' had Heath and Vaida, ''The Sacred Stones'' had Duessel and Amelia, and ''Path of Radiance'' had Jill, Muarim, and Ena. ''Radiant Dawn'' would have [[spoiler:Oliver ''forcing'' himself into your team, if he spotted Rafiel, to which Ike responds [[http://lparchive.org/Fire-Emblem-Radiant-Dawn/Update%2058/195-RFEP01-861.jpg snarkily]]]]. Additionally, Awakening gives you the option of recruiting three to four(depending on ones take on the third) former villains, [[spoiler:Gangrel, Walhart ,Yen'Fay and Aversa.]]
