* Salim in ''SlumdogMillionaire''. A good majority of the movie is him either helping out or screwing over Jamal and/or Latika depending on the situation.

* A few examples in ''TheQuestportChronicles'', but most noticeably the Lord of Angels and Demons, who switches sides at the drop of a hat. He's [[AffablyEvil never truly]] ''evil'', but he oscillates between being mildly useful and incredibly annoying.

** In 2nd Edition this was instead used for the petitioners of the [[{{Planescape}} Outlands]]. It seems to have been subsequently dropped.

* Indy's partner in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''. Fairly early in the movie, he's with Indy. Then, we discover he's working for the bad guys, then about halfway through the movie, he is still concerned about Indy's health, but is still working for the villains. A little more than halfway through the movie, he says he's a double agent, then at the end, he reveals he was lying about being a double agent, but he seems repentant of his actions when he choses to stay in the collapsing temple while Indy's friend and family escape. In all likelihood, he was just continually picking the paths that would lead to his one true goal: knowledge and treasure. His "repentance" was just the realization that the alien ship contained all he ever sought, and he no longer had any need or desire to battle that stubborn old adventurer.

* ''{{lonelygirl15}}'': How many times did [[spoiler:Gemma]] either change sides or turn out not to have changed sides after all? In a relatively small amount of appearances, at that? Granted, this doesn't seem to have been a result of lazy or inconsistent writing - the woman just couldn't commit.
** There's also [[spoiler:Sarah]]. In her first appearance, she appeared to be a villain when she held the heroes at gunpoint; but then she sided with the heroes; but then she got brainwashed by the villains; but then the heroes rescued her from the brainwashing; but then it turned out she'd actually been working for the villains all along; but no, wait, she was ''actually'' being blackmailed that time, she's really on the heroes' side; and now, the sequel series ''lg15: the Resistance'' has her once more turning out to really, actually, honest to God, this time we mean it, have been on the villains' side all along.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle is also notorious for turning about once a year. The problem with him is that he is most effective playing a heel, but his immense wrestling talent, the gold medal, and all around [=Badass=] qualities sometimes result in Face reactions even when playing a heel, thus resulting in the bookers [[HeelFaceTurn turning him face]]. Then he does his [[AllAmericanFace bland face routine]] until his crowd reactions wane, and [[FaceHeelTurn then he turns heel again]]. This effect was {{lampshaded}} during an interview [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ydZDLLtp8Y where he denounced "the black people and Jesus" to prove that he would still get cheered]] (he was right).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Characteristic of human/[[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] relations. The Eldar will often jump in and aid humans if they have a mutual enemy, especially seeing as they usually lack the firepower and numbers (though not necessarily the technology and skill) to adequately deal with things like [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]], [[RobotWar Necrons]] and [[BugWar Tyranids]], but being the [[MagnificentBastard sneaky bastards]] they are, they view their human "allies" as little more than [[UnwittingPawn pawns to be used]], and see nothing wrong with betraying them the moment it becomes convenient. After all, [[MoralMyopia they would rather allow thousands of humans to die than one of their own kind]].
