* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''Rough Draft'', the main character has just killed a powerful Functional who was trying to kill him. He then meets his friend but quickly realizes that he's one of them. The friend initially tries to help him but then nearly kills him. It gets weirder in the sequel, ''Final Draft'', where the friend returns, explaining he was just scared. At the end, though, he challenges the main character to a duel.

* In the second ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' movie, Turaga Dume starts out as a trusted friend and city leader to both [[SacrificialLion Toa Lhikan]] and [[DudeWheresMyRespect Toa Vakama]], even if he DOES act a little strangely. Turns out he's the one who ordered the rest of Lhikan's team to be killed off years ago and for ex-Toa [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Nidhiki]] and [[DumbMuscle Krekka]] to capture him as well, even managing to capture and imprison half of Vakama's team in the Coliseum and generally causing mass chaos and destruction all around. And then it turns out that Dume is not Dume at all, but rather [[BigBad Makuta]] ''disguised'' as Dume, who has been in stasis for years. Even better, before this, Makuta was a trusted guardian of their home island, meaning there are ''two'' examples of this trope in one movie.

* ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' is a big fan of this. Since every case is composed by a murder committed by one of the people who you had to live for a little while, while most case end up showing the murderer as sympathetic in their motives, some times they do come off as cold blooded killers, such as [[spoiler: Celestia, who killed Hifumi and Ishimaru to get out of the school with the money offered by Monokuma]], [[spoiler: Mikan, who killed Ibuki and Hiyoko after regaining her memories]] and [[spoiler: Nagito, who sets up his own death to be unsolvable, on a try to get everyone besides Chiaki killed.]]
** The [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 sequel]] takes it even further: The last case reveals that [[spoiler: Hinata and everybody else but Chiaki are the Remnants of Despair, a group of Ultimate Despair that served directly under Junko and are trying to destroy the world, though none of them have memories of that]].
** [[spoiler: Chiaki]] is a subversion, as [[spoiler: even though she was the traitor, she was working for the Future Foundation, who was trying to help them]].
