* Inverted in ''Film/SpyKids''. The only female villain in the series (Teri Hatcher's character in the first movie) is one of the few to ''not'' be redeemed.

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "The League of Flesh and Blood", the villains are three andoids - two male, one female - who despise what they are and long to be human. Ming eventually offers them humanity, but this requires ''stealing'' the bodies of Rick, Jedda Walker, and Kshin. Eventually, the female android is the only one [[SuddenPrincipledStand who realizes]] they're about to become accessories to murder of what they are doing, and pulls a HeroicSacrifice - killing her two partners - to save the teens.

** The [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Star Wars EU]] also had a minor case in the [[Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia Witches of Dathomir]], it's shown that the form of the dark side used by the witches leaves them disfigured. It overloads their bodies and causes blood vessels near the skin to burst, so any of the witches that are less disfigured, and prettier, would theoretically be easier to return from the dark side. This of course leads to UnfortunateImplications like BeautyEqualsGoodness.

** Of the three female members of the Donquixote Pirates, ''two'' of them perform a HeelFaceTurn (though one was acting more as TheMole, but that's aside the point). Perhaps even more unnerving is that the two women who turn are both beautiful and one switches sides because a man fell in love with her, and the other switches because she fell in love with a man. The only women who ''don't'' switch are a {{Gonk}} and a girl that is physically a child. Make of that as you will.

* In the PSP remake of ''VideoGame/TacticsOgre'', you can go ahead and make [[spoiler:the only female Templar Commando Ozma defect from the Roslolians and join Denim's forces. [[MultipleEndings Not available on all routes]], though. Her [[HalfIdenticalTwins nigh identical]] twin brother, and [[SiblingsInCrime partner]] dies in all routes.]] Oh, and in the same time, she's upgraded into a possible LoveInterest for [[BlindWeaponmaster Haborym/Hobyrim]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' prequel ''CrisisCore'', all of the Turks eventually turn to Zack's side, but Cissnei is the first to do so.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', General Beatrix starts out as a loyal servant of the villainous Queen Brahne, but turns against her ruler once the party force her to realize her queen has gone mad. She briefly joins the party herself, despite having been a difficult boss fight earlier.
** Queen Brahne herself has somewhat of a heel-face turn herself at the moment of her death, though this is more along the lines of [[VillainsDyingGrace Villain's Dying Grace]] due to a [[HeelRealization Heel Realization]].

* In the made-for-tv movie ''Operation: Jet Fusion'' for ''TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron'', Jet Fusion tries to invoke this trope on Beautiful Gorgeous, Prof. Calamitous's daughter. It fails though.

* The eponymous supervillain Leather, of the ''InterviewingLeather'' journalfic by Eric Burns, [[http://banter-latte.annotations.com/2007/08/07/interviewing-leather-part-seven/ vents her spleen about the sexism of this trope]] at length in part 7 of the series. Interestingly, Leather herself is the result of a FaceHeelTurn, as she was originally the superheroine Dynamo Girl. [[spoiler:No, she does not redeem by the end of the story.]]
