* In ''WesternAnimation/HappilyNEverAfter'', Rumpelstiltskin starts out evil and later turns good. In the sequel he's back to being evil. Though this may be more a case of NegativeContinuity and TheyJustDidntCare, since they don't give an explanation for why he's gone back to being evil.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s Vriska Serket manages to do this without ever technically changing sides, switching back and forth from VillainProtagonist to SociopathicHero. She [[KickTheDog kicks the proverbial dog]] (usually her personal ButtMonkey, Tavros) on a regular basis, but also has some [[PetTheDog nicer]] moments, especially when it comes to [[MoralityPet John]]. She's a SmugSnake most of the time, but occasionally [[BeneathTheMask her mask will start to slip]], revealing crippling self-hatred that she tries to cover up by being a JerkAss. She has a massive body count, but [[AbusiveParents an excuse]] [[HorrorHunger for it]], and while she's the TokenEvilTeammate for most of the trolls' session, [[spoiler:she very well might be ''less'' evil than the other two contenders for that title later, who are respectively AxCrazy and planning to betray the group to the BigBad]]. [[WordOfGod The author says]] he [[TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste intended for her]] to be a BaseBreaker.

Compare ChronicBackstabbingDisorder (which is more about switching between grey groups than white-to-black or visa versa), WildCard (where the character isn't strongly on anybody's side ever), UnscrupulousHero (a character who is unambiguously on the heroic side), and the DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent (he never changes sides, but no one is sure what side he's really on). See HeelFaceMole for when a villain fakes a HeelFaceTurn, only to return to being evil after his goal is achieved.

* ''WebComic/EerieCuties''[=/=]''WebComic/MagickChicks'': [[BlondesAreEvil Melissa]] regularly makes appearances in both comics, so which side of "the door" she's on depends entirely on which comic she's in at the time:

** Gaea Worshipper's guild, made of Coalition players, is convinced that Gaea, an Empire player, is actually a DoubleAgent for the Coalition and want to assisst her. However, any action on their part favoring Gaea also favors the Empire. This makes its members basically switch sides each time they run into Gaea.

* Four the first four years of Ring Warrior's Battling Bombshells division, [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]] was basically TheFace and pretty much always a face on [[GirlsNightEpisode dedicated women's shows]] and other special events. However, she was frequently used as a heel on Ring Warriors' main television show. It was the opposite in the World Wrestling League, where she was mainly used as a heel by their affiliates in the Dominican Republic, Bolivia and the 50 states. Footage of her misdeeds was aired in order to hype a purely WWL show running in Puerto Rico, [[AHeroToHisHometown which did nothing to stop the fans from giving her a warm welcome]].

* Wrestling/TheBigShow is notable for turning about once a year. Being the largest guy on the roster means that he can play the role of TheBrute against guys like Wrestling/{{Kane}} and The Undertaker, and just demolish the plucky babyfaces like Rey Mysterio Jr. and Wrestling/KofiKingston. However, the guy has great comedic timing and plays the role of the GentleGiant so well that bookers will eventually turn him. He will then proceed to be great friends with the Rey Mysterio's of the world.
