* [[PlayerCharacter Chell]] and [[IdiotBall Wheatley]] had more of a hero/sidekick relationship at the start of ''Videogame/Portal2'', but they were still very close (or at least as close as a [[MotorMouth talkative]] [[RobotBuddy robotic eyeball]] and a [[RunningGag potentially braindamaged]] [[HeroicMime mute]] can be). This changes when [[spoiler: Wheatley [[FaceHeelTurn turns on]] Chell half-way through the game, taking the title of BigBad from [=GLaDOS=] and serving as the FinalBoss]]. Later dialogue confirms that Wheatley did see Chell as a friend before [[spoiler: his FaceHeelTurn]].
-->'''Wheatley:''' Aw. Just thinking back to the old days, when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?

* In ''{{Transformers}}: WarForCybertron'' it's taken it UpToEleven, with Optimus being swayed to help start Megatron's rebellion, and even successfully lobbying for the Council to grant the rebels an audience... where Optimus argued his understanding of ''Megatron's'' cause so well, the Council agreed and named Optimus the next Prime. Megatron saw this as a betrayal, and started the civil war, anyway. NiceJobBreakingItHero, indeed.

* On Tatooine, Luke Skywalker only had two friends who shared his desire to go offworld, and both, being older than him, joined the Imperial military before ANewHope. Biggs Darklighter became a pilot, [[DefectorFromDecadence defected]] to the Rebellion, and [[MauveShirt died at Yavin]]. Luke's other friend, Janek "Tank" Sunber, was shown [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse in the comics]]; he washed out of pilot training and became an infantry officer. Of course, he came into conflict with Luke.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'''s backstory has strong shades of this. Nearly everyone in the know about the Dark Hour (outside of about half your party) used to work together for the Kirijo Group's "Ergo Division" that researched Personas and Shadows, or were involved in their initial researches. Not all of them may have been ''friends'', as such (Strega has a very understandable grudge against Kirijo), but there are a lot of old professional relationships gone sour due to [[spoiler:Mitsuru's grandfather]]'s megalomania and the disasters it caused (and continues to cause).

* Anyone who has played ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' will know of the rivalry between Hanzo Hasashi (Scorpion) and Bi-Han (Sub-Zero), stemming from [[spoiler:EvilSorcerer Quan Chi disguising himself as Bi-Han and murdering Hanzo's entire clan and family]]. However, in the second season of ''WebVideo/MortalKombatLegacy'', we find out that they were childhood friends, despite their parents forbidding them from playing together due to the rivalry between their ninja clans. In fact, after they become the leaders of their respective clans, they declare peace, and Bi-Han is even willing to keep the peace after [[spoiler:Hanzo is forced to kill Bi-Han's brother while protecting his family]]. Shortly after that, [[spoiler:Hanzo and the the entire Shirai Ryu clan are slaughtered, apparently by Bi-Han and his Lin Kuei ninja. When Bi-Han finds out, he is ready to execute his lieutenants on the spot for this until he finds out that they weren't responsible]]. After Hanzo becomes the undead Scorpion and joins the Mortal Kombat tournament on the side of the [[TheEmpire Netherrealm]], he faces Bi-Han in combat. [[spoiler:Bi-Han's attempts to reach his childhood friend fall on deaf ears, and Hanzo ends up killing him in a gruesome way]].
