If an EldritchAbomination, GodOfEvil or otherwise supernatural evil entity gets [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Punched Out]] by the same powers it gave, you have a FaustianRebellion in action. If it's an AncientConspiracy, GovernmentConspiracy or other organisation whose AppliedPhlebotinum is empowering the one who will bring them down, you have a PhlebotinumRebel. If it's done by making him hit himself, it's StopHittingYourself. If it's a {{Mook}}, long abused, who finally snaps and turns against him at the last moment, it's TheDogBitesBack. If it's a VideoGame boss whose attacks can be redirected back at them ([[PlayingTennisWithTheBoss tennis-style]] or otherwise), it's TacticalSuicideBoss. GoneHorriblyRight is a sub-trope where a SuperPrototype works too well, destroying the person or persons who created it and/or threatening the world/galaxy/universe. If it's a vehicle that you just stole, it's VehicularTurnabout.
