* Piccolo and Son Goku's rivalry in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' effectively ends when the arrival of Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta force Piccolo into a HeelFaceTurn. Vegeta himself shortly afterwards teams up with the heroes to take on Frieza and the Ginyu Force.
** Also, Cell, who was introduced shortly after the androids were introduced, ends up becoming the BigBad of the arc. His case is more unique in that he establishes himself by absorbing the androids to get them out of the way and power himself up, rather than the androids making a HeelFaceTurn to fight him with the heroes (although that does happen after they manage to make Cell regurgitate one of the androids).

* This occurred at the end of ''both'' Seasons 2 and 3 in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. In Season 2, WordOfGod states they couldn't come up with a way of resolving the conflict [[GreyAndGreyMorality between Cadmus and the Justice League]], so they [[HijackedByGanon revealed that Braniac was controlling Lex Luthor all along]]. In Season 3, the Conflict Killer is the unexpected revival of Darkseid, forcing an EnemyMine between the League and the (unnamed in series) LegionOfDoom.

* ''ComicBook/DarthMaulSonOfDathomir'': Dooku agrees to put aside his [[EvilVsEvil previous differences]] with Darth Maul when Republic forces arrive to capture both of them, and they jointly engage Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Aayla Secura and Tiplee in lightsaber combat as part of a [[spoiler:short-lived]] alliance of convenience.

** This said, it has to be taken as a growth from being Warhammer INSPACE! to being it's own work. The game is a far cry from being RogueTrader. (The original game, not the RPG)

Compare PlotTumor and TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot. Nearly always present when a DebateAndSwitch is used. If this happens in a video game it may result in a BaitAndSwitchBoss, but only if said boss is driving the plot. Contrast the GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere that appears with no explanation. If the mystery surrounding him and/or the existing players' ignorance of him are plot points, this is OutsideContextVillain instead. This is a '''spoiler heavy''' trope, so read on at your own risk.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} was originally a conflict between the [[ChurchMilitant Imperium]], the [[LegionsOfHell Forces of Chaos]], [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]], [[OurElvesAreDifferent Eldar]] and [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]]. Then in the 3rd edition they added two armies, the [[ForTheEvulz Dark Eldar]] and the [[RobotWar Necron]] and attempted to cram the Necrons in as the new BigBad. Games Workshop also attempted to add the Necrons in as a mysterious, subtle horror, which doesn't always work in a universe about as subtle as being bludgeoned with a {{Gwar}} concert.

** In the fourth season, [[spoiler:KnightTemplar and ManipulativeBastard Maggie Walsh was replaced as the BigBad by Frankenstein's Monster Wannabe Adam in the second half of the season, turning an interesting "do the ends justify the means" conflict into an excuse for the heroes to turn into some spirit magic version of {{Voltron}}.]]
