* In the Hades saga of ''SaintSeiya'', all of the Gold Saints who died during the events of the 12 Temples arc are ressurected after swearing loyalty to Hades, God of the Underworld. Thus, they lead an invasion to the Sanctuary with the intent of assassinating Athena, [[spoiler:eventually succeeding it]]. We then learn that the reason behind their betrayal was to [[spoiler: a)kill Athena so she can awaken her Eighth Sense and descend into Hades's Underworld without being bound by its rules, and b)shed the Goddess's blood in order to ressurect Athena's Cloth so she can use it to fight the Lord of the Underworld.]]

* During season 2 in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX, almost every student from the Obelisk Dorm or Ra Dorm gets brainwashed after being defeated and joins the Society of Light. However, it is strongly implied that Daichi Misawa fakes being brainwashed as his goal was only to join the Society of Light, so he will be acknowledged as a good duelist and not being ignored. Unlike others, he lost on purpose to join the Society and he never shows any arrogance like the other members, shows expression of wanting to challenge the leader Saiou, and notably, he does not lose a duel to "snap out". While he's clearly on the side of the villains at that time, he is not antagonizing the heroes either.

* [[spoiler: Saruhiko Fushimi]] does this ''brilliantly'' in ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Return of Kings]]''. Since he is one of the few Clansman known to have left one Clan to join another, he and his King use that reputation, stage a fight in front of the whole Clan, and have him storm off and [[spoiler: reactivate his JUNGLE account]], making it look like a regular case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder. When his true plan and choices are revealed, it turns ''everything'' that has been shown of that character so far on its head. His King even goes to the Clansman of his old Clan who still holds a grudge over his original "betrayal", and tells him that there is one way for the Fake Defector to survive - that is, to actually betray his King and join the Clan he's infiltrating. "You are his friend, and know him well. Do you think that's something he would do?" And even that character knows it isn't.

* During the [[UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu Three Kingdoms of China]], this sort of trick was sometimes pulled. In 228, for example, Zhou Fang, the commander of Wu's Poyang commandery, offered to surrender the city of Huan to the Wei general Cao Xiu. The whole thing was a plot to draw Cao Xiu out and kill him, as he'd been a major thorn to the Wu empire for years. Some of Cao Xiu's colleagues realised it was most likely a trap and tried to warn the Wei Emperor, but Cao himself realised he'd been had and tried to withdraw before falling into the trap. Wu's forces still demolished his forces and he later died of his wounds, so it was a partial success.
** One of the most famous examples happened before the Battle of Chibi, where the general Huang Gai sent letters to Cao Cao offering to defect. As Cao Cao had been receiving many such letters from various officials over the past few weeks, he had no reason to be particularly suspicious of Huang Gai. However, Huang Gai's ships pulled barges full of flammable material behind them and rammed Cao Cao's fleet, which combined with unseasonal winds sent fire raging through Cao Cao's fleet. Huang Gai himself nearly died during the course of the action, but was rescued by his old friend Han Dang.

It helps that, as a deconstruction of many fairy tale tropes, Happy Ever After was not guaranteed by any means, and the ending [[BittersweetEnding still remains rather dark]]...
