** The BigBad of ''Film/GoldenEye'' turned out to be [[spoiler:[[BigBadFriend Alec Trevelyan/006]], who not only survive the Arkhangelsk explosion early in the movie, but is hell-bent on getting his revenge against the British for the betrayal of his family, who were Lienz Cossacks as they were Nazi collaborators during WWII. By the end of the war, the Cossacks, who switched sides and believed that they were under British protection, were instead sent back to Stalin, who promptly had them all executed. The guilt of surviving Stalin's death squads causes Trevelyan's father to kill himself and his mother, leaving 006 bitter about this. Averted in Bond's opinion though, as he believes Alec is OnlyInItForTheMoney, with his FreudianExcuse just that, an excuse. Which kind of makes sense -- 006 appears to have faithfully served MI6 for years before faking his death.]]

* A relatively mild case where the betrayal actually does leads to the FallenHero's FaceHeelTurn in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''. During the beginning of the film, M asks for James Bond to leave [[spoiler:Tiago Rodriguez]]/Raoul Silva where he was, not only because he had been engaging in unauthorized hacking against the Chinese, but to hand him over to them in exchange for the prisoners held by the Chinese government. No wonder the guy becomes a cyber-terrorist bent on revenge against M.
