* Happened during Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ''Payback'' PPV in 2013. Wrestling/DolphZiggler was facing Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio, heel and face respectively, for the World Heavyweight Championship.[[note]]Del Rio was invoking his rematch clause. Dolph had just returned to action after his concussion.[[/note]] In the lead up to the match, long-time EnsembleDarkhorse Ziggler became increasingly popular with fans, while Del Rio was bombing in the face role he had gone on for the last six months, During the match Del Rio repeatedly targeted Dolph's head. The fans started booing Del Rio and cheering for Dolph. In the end Del Rio won the World Heavyweight Championship. The next night on Raw the double turned was further implemented with Del Rio blaming the fans for not standing by his side, and after a match with Wrestling/CMPunk (who was undergoing his own HeelFaceTurn at the time), in which he intentionally got counted out, was attacked by Ziggler, who would subsequently part ways with his stablemates Wrestling/BigELangston and Wrestling/AJLee, who would stay together for a couple of more months as the latter returned to being a full-time wrestler in the women's Division, while Del Rio would shortly afterwards cut ties with his long-time personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez. By Friday, Del Rio was back to wrestling faces like Chris Jericho, John Cena, and his now-infamous rival Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}. Ziggler's very next match was against [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Antonio Cesaro]], solidifying ''his'' turn. Del Rio never returned to the good side for the remainder of his WWE career, while Ziggler has to date also stayed solidly face since (even though he still keeps the "#HEEL" shtick).

* In 2005 Christie Ricci wrestled a match for PGWA in her hometown, on her birthday, so she almost had to be the face but even more since it was against Lollipop of [[GirlPosse Team Blondage]] infamy. Two years later Lollipop had retired from pro wrestling but returned to PGWA again when told Ricci wanted another birthday match. So the fans were nice to Lollipop for the nice gesture, and then turned on Ricci as it became clear she had only made the request for a chance to injure Lollipop.

* The most well known instance of this happening is the famous Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin vs. Wrestling/BretHart match at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 13'' where Bret went in as the face and ended up turning heel after the match and vice versa with Stone Cold, due to [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown the brutality of the former]] and the HeroicWillpower of the latter.

We're all familiar with the FaceHeelTurn and the HeelFaceTurn as well as all the sub tropes that go with them. However, there is the rare occasion when one character undergoes a HeelFaceTurn while another does a FaceHeelTurn almost simultaneously: that is the FaceHeelDoubleTurn. This comes in many forms, particularly in a whodunnit mystery. For example, the RedHerring is revealed to be good all along while the real suspect is exposed. Or perhaps in a war the hardass DrillSergeantNasty isn't so nasty after all while a seemingly nice and innocent soldier turns out to be TheMole or TheBigBad. Of course, this trope isn't just restricted to finding out one character was good all along while the other was bad; it can refer to characters changing roles in a storyline.

** Likewise, Kazuya and Heihachi [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor zig zag through this all the time]]. In the first game Kazuya was the face as Heihachi had thrown him off the cliff as a child. At the end of the game he threw Heihachi off a cliff and took control of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Except he was a far worse leader than Heihachi was and the organisation became more corrupt, thus making Heihachi a face by default when he returned in ''Tekken 2''. Though then he threw Kazuya into a volcano at the end of the game and became a heel again. In ''Tekken 3'', Jin took over Kazuya's role as the main face, with the latter coming back as a tweener in ''4''. At the end of ''5'', Jin had taken over the Zaibatsu and became a corrupt military dictator and Heihachi, presumed to be dead, was part of the resistance trying to stop him.
