** 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 woman who ''doesn't'' switch is a {{Gonk}}. Make of that as you will.

** Miss Teschmacher's betrayal was really Lex's own fault -- he's so horrible to both of his henchpeople throughout the movie that the only reason Otis didn't betray him too was because he was too stupid to realize just how much Lex hated him.

* An interesting case in ''VideoGame/{{Kingdom Hearts Chain Of Memories}}'' where Larxene, member of Organization XIII, aids Marluxia in his plan to defy Organization XIII. She's still evil, but now she's just against both the heroes and the other group of villains.
