* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'': ''Xrd: -Revelator-'' reveals that [[spoiler:That Man doesn't actually want world domination; he just wants people to be free from [[GodIsEvil the Universal Will]]. And that he did have well-intentioned reasons for turning Sol into a Gear: Aria would have rather died of her terminal illness while being with Frederick than going into cryogenic slumber while a cure was found over an untold number of years, so he made them both Gears so they could enjoy immortality together. He fully admits that he caused Aria/Justice's death and he deserves Sol's hatred, and even though the two have finally made peace, he still accepts Sol's request for a final showdown.]]

* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' episode "Something About Harry", a teenager suspects that his mom's new tenant is an alien infiltrator when people start disappearing around ttown, whom the tenant is melting into green goo with a futuristic gun. The tenant was actually a U.S. government agent, and everyone he killed was one of the real aliens. The teenager's mother is the one who had really been replaced by the alien parasites.
* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "A Hen in the Wolfhouse", Simmons's cover at HYDRA is under threat from their security team, led by Bobbi Morse. When her cover is completely blown, Morse takes out the rest of the security team and tells Simmons that Coulson has arranged their extraction.
** After getting close -- very close -- to Rosalind Price, the head of the newly formed Advanced Threat Containment Unit, which has been capturing Inhumans and keeping them in storage until a "cure" can be found, Coulson reveals to her that he already knows that her organization is overseen by HYDRA. He is correct -- but Rosalind herself was completely unaware and, once she convinces Coulson of her innocence, is willing to work with him to bring it down.
* ''Series/{{Marchlands}}'' spends four episodes playing on classic expectations of a poltergeist, but the final episode reveals that the ghost never actually tries to harm anyone--she is only trying to expose the mysterious circumstances of her death, and on one occasion she even saves an epileptic boy from drowning in a bathtub. This is made even clearer at the end, when even the resident AgentScully, Amy's mother, admits, "I think Alice was really a good girl all along."
* ''Series/WetHotAmericanSummerFirstDayOfCamp'': The Falcon, President Reagan's personal assassin, was apparently this. As soon as it's revealed, however, [[LampshadeHanging Beth points out that it makes no sense at all]], since The Falcon had repeatedly tried to kill her and had successfully killed two of her friends along with several others. The Falcon says that he'd like to explain but there's somewhere he really has to be.
* A character on ''[[Series/{{Supergirl2015}} Supergirl]]'' is traditionally a villain in the comics, but is revealed to be this on the television show. [[spoiler:This is because the character, Hank Henshaw, [[DeadPersonImpersonation is actually]] a disguised J'onn J'onzz, the ComicBook/MartianManhunter, who ''is'' a hero in the comics]].

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl's'' Subspace Emissary mode, [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} King Dedede]] spends most of the story trying to take fighters that have been turned into trophies. [[spoiler: Then after everybody except the three that he did manage to get face down Tabuu and get trophified, the badges he placed on those three turn them back to normal.]]
** Of course, the fact that a major cutscene revealing why he did this (in which he's present while Meta Knight's ship gets stolen) got removed in the final cut does complicate this. With that said, Dedede acting like a dick for no reason would still be quite in character for him.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series of video games, King Dedede's almost always portrayed as the BigBad in the beginning of a given game, but usually turns out to be either this or just an innocent jerk. The most blatant case is probably [[spoiler:''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure''/''Nightmare in Dream Land'', where he destroys the Star Rod and prevents everyone in Dream Land from dreaming. It turns out he was just trying to stop [[BigBad Night]][[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere mare]] from taking over the Fountain of Dreams]].
** [[spoiler: Landia]] in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland''. [[spoiler: Though Magolor claims that it's threatening Halcandra, in reality, it's the planet's guardian and lives to prevent its treasures from falling into the wrong hands; the Lor Starcutter and Master Crown being two of them. After Kirby and friends beat it up as a result of the misinformation, it immediately aids them in stopping Magolor once his true intentions come to light.]]
* [[spoiler: Angela Cross]], the true identity of the Masked Thief in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando''. [[spoiler: Angela]] has been working against Megacorp to prevent the release of the Protopet, [[spoiler: as it is a violent carnivorous creature that also repeatedly reproduces offspring at the drop of a hat, and if it got out could very well threaten everything in the galaxy.]]
* Depending on [[MultipleEndings what ending]] the player gets, [[spoiler:Anne]] of ''VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour'' was in the right all along. [[spoiler:In all but the best ending, Murphy killed her father as part of a prison deal, and in the worst ending, he also killed his own son, making his reasons for revenge entirely moot.]]
* Cynder, the BigBad of the first game in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' trilogy turned out to be BrainwashedAndCrazy. After Spyro defeated her, [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim she returned to her normal self]] and eventually [[spoiler:fell in love with Spyro]].
* [[spoiler:The Boss]] from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. [[spoiler:Even before TheReveal that she's a FakeDefector, it's made quite clear that she's a good woman.]]
** And in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', [[spoiler:Revolver Ocelot]] is revealed to have been noble in his goals from the very start, working to [[spoiler:destroy the Patriots for good and also working save Big Boss, who he admired deeply. All while being seen as a terrorist the whole time.]]
* [[spoiler: Grovyle]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' is initially presented as a villain who's trying to throw off the world's balance by swiping the Time Gears. [[spoiler: However, it turns out that he's actually trying to save the world, as any ill effects caused by the removal of the gears are temporary, and they're needed to stop what's really going to doom the world. [[PoorCommunicationKills If only he had bothered trying to explain this before you get captured by the real villain along with him...]]]]
** ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' has [[spoiler: Hydreigon]], who looks pure evil, is seen attacking [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Munna]] in the opening, and is later stated to be the cause of the world's impending destruction. [[spoiler: However, everything but his appearance turns out to be a lie, and he's actually the one who called the player into the Pokemon world to act as its savior. He proves to be one of the kindest and most heroic characters in the series and a shining example of DarkIsNotEvil.]]
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' Arnie and Saya get to have a conversation with Jin and Ayul where Arnie fully realizes that Jin truly has no ill intent. Jin just really, really wants to stop the apocalypse from coming about and will do anything to defeat you to make that happen.
* Applies to an entire species: [[spoiler:the Geth]], as of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. [[spoiler:Turns out the ones you've been fighting are a sort of rebel faction who worship the Reapers. Normal Geth refer to these as "Heretic" Geth, you learn this after meeting one]]. More a case of TrueNeutral All Along: Most of their species have no beef with anyone else in the galaxy and just want to be left alone.
* ''VideoGame/TearsToTiara2'' has the RecurringBoss [[spoiler:Izebel]]. Played up as traitor and DeceptiveDisciple [[spoiler:she has in fact the entire time been subtly helping LaResistance behind the scenes. Her fight with Hamil were to both train him and test his abilities to make sure he's good enough to take on TheEmpire. [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning And the entire thing, including her "betrayal" was ordered by the superior whom she supposedly betrayed before he took his own life.]]]]
* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'': As it turns out, [[spoiler: the animatronics]] fall into this trope. During the mini games, you can see that [[spoiler: Freddy]] attempts to rescue some kids from the real murderer, but fails. As for [[spoiler:the other animatronics]], they just seem like they want to entertain the children.
** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' reveals that [[spoiler: the classic animatronics--Freddy, Chica, Bonnie, and Foxy--as well as the Puppet were Good. They were trying to find and stop the homicidal Purple Man. Because their spirits were that of children, they couldn't identify him properly or tell him apart from other adults. They were using the only context clue they had: a security guard's uniform. Turns out that the Puppet is the BigGood! He's the one who revived the five murdered children as the suits so they could find their killer, even though he is heavily implied to be a dead child himself.]]
* ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'': Despite apparently working for the BigBad [[spoiler: Ghaleon]] eventually reveals himself to be this. This is especially surprising because [[spoiler: Ghaleon was the BigBad of the ''first'' game; everything that he does in the second game is a secret effort to atone for his previous actions.]]
* The primary antagonist of ''VideoGame/MegaManIV'' is Dr. Cossack, a Russian scientist who sent eight of his robots to attack Mega Man to prove his genius. [[HijackedByGanon Except that he was being blackmailed by Dr. Wily]] into doing his work for him, and never had evil ambitions of his own. In the following game, where Dr. Light is kidnapped, Cossack serves as an ally in his place.
* The villains of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'', Saturos and Menardi, turn out to not only be fighting to ''save'' the world, but have only resorted to brute force because not only did the elders of Vale refuse to listen to their warnings about the imminent apocalypse, but their [[DoomedHometown hometown]] is the ''first place on the apocalypse's chopping block''. They're still grade-A [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] who get their fair share of KickTheDog moments, but at least their hearts are in the right place. [[spoiler: Alex, [[DragonWithAnAgenda not so much]] by a ''long'' shot]].
* In ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'', the Flamethrower Guy is initially assumed to be the SerialKiller hunting the teens, but is eventually revealed to be separate entity that only wanted to [[spoiler: protect the kids from the {{wendigo}}s]]. In addition, [[spoiler: the SerialKiller is just one of the kids trying to teach the others a lesson and was completely unaware anyone was in any danger, and Dr. Hill is said kid's conscience.]]
* In ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', the two major powers are YHVH, an insane TautologicalTemplar, and Lucifer, a WellIntentionedExtremist with {{Jerkass}} tendencies. Lucifer is usually seen as the lesser of the two evils, while YHVH, or the Great Will as he's been called since ''Nocturne'', is just too evil to side with. Then ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' happened. [[spoiler:No, YHVH is still evil. However, the Great Will turns out to be a separate entity from YHVH who has actively been trying to stop YHVH by creating Messiahs, effectively redeeming the Great Will]].
* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'': ''Burial at Sea'' reveals that [[spoiler:Daisy Fitzroy was all along an agent of the Lucete Twins, and her MoralEventHorizon crossing and subsequent death at Elizabeth's hands were [[ThanatosGambit all part of the plan]] to harden Elizabeth and turn her into the woman who would in the future bring down Comstock and the Founders.]]
* [[spoiler: Kratos Aurion]] of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' appears to betray the group. [[spoiler: It turns out he has been helping them all along.]]
* The supposed BigBad of ''VideoGame/OneWayHeroics'' is played up to be a [[GenericDoomsdayVillain generic world-destroying Demon Lord]] who needs to be killed to stop the [[WorldWreckingWave encroaching wall of darkness]]. [[spoiler:If you use a Buddy Tablet on her, she'll reveal that she didn't cause the darkness and that her death is part of a ritual to temporarily stop the apocalypse.]]

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Grace's brothers are of the "coerced/threatened" variety, since they are ruled by the iron fist of their powerful and abusive guardian, Damien. When Hedge kidnaps Elliot, he reveals that he's only doing it because he can't find Grace, and because Damien said he would kill him if he didn't bring someone back. He also gets hit by Damien for lying to him and disobeying orders. When Elliot's friends arrive to save him, Hedge tries to make them to leave before Damien finds out they're there. The worst thing Guineas does is guard Elliot, and his way of participating in the fight with Elliot's friends is by ''having a thumb war'' with one of them. Vlad initially appears to be at least somewhat sympathetic to Damien's mindset: He is confrontational towards Hedge, he willingly goes after Grace when he sees her arrive, and when Damien subdues her, he says, "I never like to see her hurt, but she brought it upon herself." He also is the one who alert's Damien to the presence of Elliot's friends, and ends up being the most vicious fighter against them. However, this all turns out to be a combination of lip-service to Damien and resentment for being unable to transform into a human.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', it is discovered that the [[SuperTeam Protectorate]], and the [[PowerTrio Triumvirate]], are being backed by [[spoiler: the NebulousEvilOrganization Cauldron]] and its [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness mysterious leaders]]. However, it turns out that [[spoiler: Cauldron, and its [[[[IDidWhatIHadToDo nefarious deeds]], like creating the [[TransformationHorror mutated Case 53s]] and [[LaserGuidedAmnesia wiping their memories]] ]] is actually the ones working to stop [[spoiler: Scion]] from causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, and are just {{WellIntentioned Extremist}}s who want to avoid a public panic, and possible the collapse of civiliation

* Hack & Slash of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' only followed Megabyte's orders because they knew Bob would always stop them. [[PutOnABus When Bob is gone]] Slash can't bring himself to kill a Bi-Nome on Megabyte's orders, and says that he misses Bob. Then the two switch sides.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' showed that Jon had a {{pirate}} ancestor who seemed to be evil, but was in reality [[BeenThereShapedHistory a spy for George Washington]].
* Colossus in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' was a member of Magneto's Acolytes. In his second appearance, it was revealed during a confrontation between him and Wolverine that he was a reluctant member of the group and Magneto had blackmailed him into joining. In subsequent appearances, Colossus was consistently portrayed as the most sympathetic member of the Acolytes and was the first to abandon the group after Magneto was seemingly killed by Apocalypse. He later helped the X-Men in their final battle against Apocalypse and was shown in the DistantFinale to become a full-fledged member of the X-Men following Apocalypse's defeat.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', Plucky Duck who's often acts like a {{Jerkass}} is revealed to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. When Acme Looneversity was playing football against Perfecto Prep, Plucky seemed to be giving the opposing team's captain Roderick Rat the Looniversity playbook in exchange for transferring to Perfecto. When his number one fan Little Sneezer the mouse catches him talking [[BrokenPedestal to Roderick he tells Plucky]] [[TearJerker "Say it ain't so, Plucky!"]]. At the end during the last quarter of the game when Sneezer again tells Plucky "Say it ain't so, Plucky!", Plucky smiles and says [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "It ain't so, Sneezer."]]. Plucky and his team captain Buster Bunny immediately use a play together that was never in the Looniveristy team's playbook and when Roderick states so in angry confusion Buster tells him to check the back...Where [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Roderick finds the last page reading "Sucker"]]. Turns out Buster planned to have Plucky pretend to help Roderick so they could beat his team in the end.

However, the Great Will turns out to be a separate entity from YHVH who has actively been trying to stop YHVH by creating Messiahs, effectively redeeming the Great Will]].
* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'': ''Burial at Sea'' reveals that [[spoiler:Daisy Fitzroy was all along an agent of the Lucete Twins, and her MoralEventHorizon crossing and subsequent death at Elizabeth's hands were [[ThanatosGambit all part of the plan]] to harden Elizabeth and turn her into the woman who would in the future bring down Comstock and the Founders.]]
* [[spoiler: Kratos Aurion]] of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' appears to betray the group. [[spoiler: It turns out he has been helping them all along.]]
* The supposed BigBad of ''VideoGame/OneWayHeroics'' is played up to be a [[GenericDoomsdayVillain generic world-destroying Demon Lord]] who needs to be killed to stop the [[WorldWreckingWave encroaching wall of darkness]]. [[spoiler:If you use a Buddy Tablet on her, she'll reveal that she didn't cause the darkness and that her death is part of a ritual to temporarily stop the apocalypse.]]

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Grace's brothers are of the "coerced/threatened" variety, since they are ruled by the iron fist of their powerful and abusive guardian, Damien. When Hedge kidnaps Elliot, he reveals that he's only doing it because he can't find Grace, and because Damien said he would kill him if he didn't bring someone back. He also gets hit by Damien for lying to him and disobeying orders. When Elliot's friends arrive to save him, Hedge tries to make them to leave before Damien finds out they're there. The worst thing Guineas does is guard Elliot, and his way of participating in the fight with Elliot's friends is by ''having a thumb war'' with one of them. Vlad initially appears to be at least somewhat sympathetic to Damien's mindset: He is confrontational towards Hedge, he willingly goes after Grace when he sees her arrive, and when Damien subdues her, he says, "I never like to see her hurt, but she brought it upon herself." He also is the one who alert's Damien to the presence of Elliot's friends, and ends up being the most vicious fighter against them. However, this all turns out to be a combination of lip-service to Damien and resentment for being unable to transform into a human.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', it is discovered that the [[SuperTeam Protectorate]], and the [[PowerTrio Triumvirate]], are being backed by [[spoiler: the NebulousEvilOrganization Cauldron]] and its [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness mysterious leaders]]. However, it turns out that [[spoiler: Cauldron, and its [[[[IDidWhatIHadToDo nefarious deeds]], like creating the [[TransformationHorror mutated Case 53s]] and [[LaserGuidedAmnesia wiping their memories]] ]] is actually the ones working to stop [[spoiler: Scion]] from causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, and are just {{WellIntentioned Extremist}}s who want to avoid a public panic, and possible the collapse of civiliation

* Hack & Slash of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' only followed Megabyte's orders because they knew Bob would always stop them. [[PutOnABus When Bob is gone]] Slash can't bring himself to kill a Bi-Nome on Megabyte's orders, and says that he misses Bob. Then the two switch sides.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' showed that Jon had a {{pirate}} ancestor who seemed to be evil, but was in reality [[BeenThereShapedHistory a spy for George Washington]].
* Colossus in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' was a member of Magneto's Acolytes. In his second appearance, it was revealed during a confrontation between him and Wolverine that he was a reluctant member of the group and Magneto had blackmailed him into joining. In subsequent appearances, Colossus was consistently portrayed as the most sympathetic member of the Acolytes and was the first to abandon the group after Magneto was seemingly killed by Apocalypse. He later helped the X-Men in their final battle against Apocalypse and was shown in the DistantFinale to become a full-fledged member of the X-Men following Apocalypse's defeat.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', Plucky Duck who's often acts like a {{Jerkass}} is revealed to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. When Acme Looneversity was playing football against Perfecto Prep, Plucky seemed to be giving the opposing team's captain Roderick Rat the Looniversity playbook in exchange for transferring to Perfecto. When his number one fan Little Sneezer the mouse catches him talking [[BrokenPedestal to Roderick he tells Plucky]] [[TearJerker "Say it ain't so, Plucky!"]]. At the end during the last quarter of the game when Sneezer again tells Plucky "Say it ain't so, Plucky!", Plucky smiles and says [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "It ain't so, Sneezer."]]. Plucky and his team captain Buster Bunny immediately use a play together that was never in the Looniveristy team's playbook and when Roderick states so in angry confusion Buster tells him to check the back...Where [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Roderick finds the last page reading "Sucker"]]. Turns out Buster planned to have Plucky pretend to help Roderick so they could beat his team in the end.

* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' episode "Something About Harry", a teenager suspects that his mom's new tenant is an alien infiltrator when people start disappearing around town, whom the tenant is melting into green goo with a futuristic gun. The tenant was actually a U.S. government agent, and everyone he killed was one of the real aliens. The teenager's mother is the one who had really been replaced by the alien parasites.
* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "A Hen in the Wolfhouse", Simmons's cover at HYDRA is under threat from their security team, led by Bobbi Morse. When her cover is completely blown, Morse takes out the rest of the security team and tells Simmons that Coulson has arranged their extraction.
** After getting close -- very close -- to Rosalind Price, the head of the newly formed Advanced Threat Containment Unit, which has been capturing Inhumans and keeping them in storage until a "cure" can be found, Coulson reveals to her that he already knows that her organization is overseen by HYDRA. He is correct -- but Rosalind herself was completely unaware and, once she convinces Coulson of her innocence, is willing to work with him to bring it down.
* ''Series/{{Marchlands}}'' spends four episodes playing on classic expectations of a poltergeist, but the final episode reveals that the ghost never actually tries to harm anyone--she is only trying to expose the mysterious circumstances of her death, and on one occasion she even saves an epileptic boy from drowning in a bathtub. This is made even clearer at the end, when even the resident AgentScully, Amy's mother, admits, "I think Alice was really a good girl all along."
* ''Series/WetHotAmericanSummerFirstDayOfCamp'': The Falcon, President Reagan's personal assassin, was apparently this. As soon as it's revealed, however, [[LampshadeHanging Beth points out that it makes no sense at all]], since The Falcon had repeatedly tried to kill her and had successfully killed two of her friends along with several others. The Falcon says that he'd like to explain but there's somewhere he really has to be.
* A character on ''[[Series/{{Supergirl2015}} Supergirl]]'' is traditionally a villain in the comics, but is revealed to be this on the television show. [[spoiler:This is because the character, Hank Henshaw, [[DeadPersonImpersonation is actually]] a disguised J'onn J'onzz, the ComicBook/MartianManhunter, who ''is'' a hero in the comics]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Role-Playing Games]]
* Played with in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG''. It comes as no surprise that Frank Einstein is a good guy. However, the surprise was when [[spoiler:the villainous Wallace Bishop turned out to be Frank Einstein [[ReverseMole in disguise]].]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl's'' Subspace Emissary mode, [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} King Dedede]] spends most of the story trying to take fighters that have been turned into trophies. [[spoiler: Then after everybody except the three that he did manage to get face down Tabuu and get trophified, the badges he placed on those three turn them back to normal.]]
** Of course, the fact that a major cutscene revealing why he did this (in which he's present while Meta Knight's ship gets stolen) got removed in the final cut does complicate this. With that said, Dedede acting like a dick for no reason would still be quite in character for him.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series of video games, King Dedede's almost always portrayed as the BigBad in the beginning of a given game, but usually turns out to be either this or just an innocent jerk. The most blatant case is probably [[spoiler:''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure''/''Nightmare in Dream Land'', where he destroys the Star Rod and prevents everyone in Dream Land from dreaming. It turns out he was just trying to stop [[BigBad Night]][[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere mare]] from taking over the Fountain of Dreams]].
** [[spoiler: Landia]] in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland''. [[spoiler: Though Magolor claims that it's threatening Halcandra, in reality, it's the planet's guardian and lives to prevent its treasures from falling into the wrong hands; the Lor Starcutter and Master Crown being two of them. After Kirby and friends beat it up as a result of the misinformation, it immediately aids them in stopping Magolor once his true intentions come to light.]]
* [[spoiler: Angela Cross]], the true identity of the Masked Thief in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando''. [[spoiler: Angela]] has been working against Megacorp to prevent the release of the Protopet, [[spoiler: as it is a violent carnivorous creature that also repeatedly reproduces offspring at the drop of a hat, and if it got out could very well threaten everything in the galaxy.]]
* Depending on [[MultipleEndings what ending]] the player gets, [[spoiler:Anne]] of ''VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour'' was in the right all along. [[spoiler:In all but the best ending, Murphy killed her father as part of a prison deal, and in the worst ending, he also killed his own son, making his reasons for revenge entirely moot.]]
* Cynder, the BigBad of the first game in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' trilogy turned out to be BrainwashedAndCrazy. After Spyro defeated her, [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim she returned to her normal self]] and eventually [[spoiler:fell in love with Spyro]].
* [[spoiler:The Boss]] from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. [[spoiler:Even before TheReveal that she's a FakeDefector, it's made quite clear that she's a good woman.]]
** And in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', [[spoiler:Revolver Ocelot]] is revealed to have been noble in his goals from the very start, working to [[spoiler:destroy the Patriots for good and also working save Big Boss, who he admired deeply. All while being seen as a terrorist the whole time.]]
* [[spoiler: Grovyle]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' is initially presented as a villain who's trying to throw off the world's balance by swiping the Time Gears. [[spoiler: However, it turns out that he's actually trying to save the world, as any ill effects caused by the removal of the gears are temporary, and they're needed to stop what's really going to doom the world. [[PoorCommunicationKills If only he had bothered trying to explain this before you get captured by the real villain along with him...]]]]
** ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' has [[spoiler: Hydreigon]], who looks pure evil, is seen attacking [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Munna]] in the opening, and is later stated to be the cause of the world's impending destruction. [[spoiler: However, everything but his appearance turns out to be a lie, and he's actually the one who called the player into the Pokemon world to act as its savior. He proves to be one of the kindest and most heroic characters in the series and a shining example of DarkIsNotEvil.]]
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' Arnie and Saya get to have a conversation with Jin and Ayul where Arnie fully realizes that Jin truly has no ill intent. Jin just really, really wants to stop the apocalypse from coming about and will do anything to defeat you to make that happen.
* Applies to an entire species: [[spoiler:the Geth]], as of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. [[spoiler:Turns out the ones you've been fighting are a sort of rebel faction who worship the Reapers. Normal Geth refer to these as "Heretic" Geth, you learn this after meeting one]]. More a case of TrueNeutral All Along: Most of their species have no beef with anyone else in the galaxy and just want to be left alone.
* ''VideoGame/TearsToTiara2'' has the RecurringBoss [[spoiler:Izebel]]. Played up as traitor and DeceptiveDisciple [[spoiler:she has in fact the entire time been subtly helping LaResistance behind the scenes. Her fight with Hamil were to both train him and test his abilities to make sure he's good enough to take on TheEmpire. [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning And the entire thing, including her "betrayal" was ordered by the superior whom she supposedly betrayed before he took his own life.]]]]
* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'': As it turns out, [[spoiler: the animatronics]] fall into this trope. During the mini games, you can see that [[spoiler: Freddy]] attempts to rescue some kids from the real murderer, but fails. As for [[spoiler:the other animatronics]], they just seem like they want to entertain the children.
** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' reveals that [[spoiler: the classic animatronics--Freddy, Chica, Bonnie, and Foxy--as well as the Puppet were Good. They were trying to find and stop the homicidal Purple Man. Because their spirits were that of children, they couldn't identify him properly or tell him apart from other adults. They were using the only context clue they had: a security guard's uniform. Turns out that the Puppet is the BigGood! He's the one who revived the five murdered children as the suits so they could find their killer, even though he is heavily implied to be a dead child himself.]]
* ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'': Despite apparently working for the BigBad [[spoiler: Ghaleon]] eventually reveals himself to be this. This is especially surprising because [[spoiler: Ghaleon was the BigBad of the ''first'' game; everything that he does in the second game is a secret effort to atone for his previous actions.]]
* The primary antagonist of ''VideoGame/MegaManIV'' is Dr. Cossack, a Russian scientist who sent eight of his robots to attack Mega Man to prove his genius. [[HijackedByGanon Except that he was being blackmailed by Dr. Wily]] into doing his work for him, and never had evil ambitions of his own. In the following game, where Dr. Light is kidnapped, Cossack serves as an ally in his place.
* The villains of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'', Saturos and Menardi, turn out to not only be fighting to ''save'' the world, but have only resorted to brute force because not only did the elders of Vale refuse to listen to their warnings about the imminent apocalypse, but their [[DoomedHometown hometown]] is the ''first place on the apocalypse's chopping block''. They're still grade-A [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] who get their fair share of KickTheDog moments, but at least their hearts are in the right place. [[spoiler: Alex, [[DragonWithAnAgenda not so much]] by a ''long'' shot]].
* In ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'', the Flamethrower Guy is initially assumed to be the SerialKiller hunting the teens, but is eventually revealed to be separate entity that only wanted to [[spoiler: protect the kids from the {{wendigo}}s]]. In addition, [[spoiler: the SerialKiller is just one of the kids trying to teach the others a lesson and was completely unaware anyone was in any danger, and Dr. Hill is said kid's conscience.]]
* In ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', the two major powers are YHVH, an insane TautologicalTemplar, and Lucifer, a WellIntentionedExtremist with {{Jerkass}} tendencies. Lucifer is usually seen as the lesser of the two evils, while YHVH, or the Great Will as he's been called since ''Nocturne'', is just too evil to side with. Then ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' happened. [[spoiler:No, YHVH is still evil. However, the Great Will turns out to be a separate entity from YHVH who has actively been trying to stop YHVH by creating Messiahs, effectively redeeming the Great Will]].
* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'': ''Burial at Sea'' reveals that [[spoiler:Daisy Fitzroy was all along an agent of the Lucete Twins, and her MoralEventHorizon crossing and subsequent death at Elizabeth's hands were [[ThanatosGambit all part of the plan]] to harden Elizabeth and turn her into the woman who would in the future bring down Comstock and the Founders.]]
* [[spoiler: Kratos Aurion]] of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' appears to betray the group. [[spoiler: It turns out he has been helping them all along.]]
* The supposed BigBad of ''VideoGame/OneWayHeroics'' is played up to be a [[GenericDoomsdayVillain generic world-destroying Demon Lord]] who needs to be killed to stop the [[WorldWreckingWave encroaching wall of darkness]]. [[spoiler:If you use a Buddy Tablet on her, she'll reveal that she didn't cause the darkness and that her death is part of a ritual to temporarily stop the apocalypse.]]
