* ''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}}.]]

* The Water Seven storyline of ''Manga/OnePiece'' seems to set up Franky as that arc's big bad by having him and his goons beat Usopp to a bloody pulp. The Strawhats vow revenge and tear Franky's henchmen a new one, causing HIM to swear vengeance in turn...it all seems to be leading up to a big showdown between Franky and Luffy, until the WhamEpisode which turns the plot on its head leaves our heroes with much, much bigger problems to worry about. Franky does a HeelFaceTurn and proves to be far more interesting as a good guy, anyway. And ultimately joining the crew.
