* The character Ogre in ''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds'' shows up in the sequel in a different chapter of the Alpha Beta fraternity. The brothers he had in the original film are all gone, apparently defeated. Although later, [[spoiler: they ditch Ogre after he's served his purpose as dumb muscle, leaving him to join the all-accepting nerds as ''their'' dumb muscle]].

* In ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'', after [[spoiler: [[EvilOverlord the Lord Ruler]]'s]] death, many of his most powerful minions, notably [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Koloss]] and [[ImplacableMan Inquisitors]], start working for new BigBad [[spoiler: Ruin]]. Justified in this case because the Lord Ruler created these beings and built a psychic "back door" into them so that he could always control them; with him out of the way, the far more powerful [[spoiler: Ruin]] was equally capable of exploiting said "door". His human minions are a much more mixed bag, with some joining the heroes and others various BigBadWannabe kings.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'' you're invoking this trope by taking control of the previous Overlord's tower and minions. [[spoiler: The final level sees him turn up to reclaim them, forcing you to regain their loyalty the old fashioned way.]] In fact there have been a whole chain of Overlords over the years, but they all use the same sort of Minions and even a couple of the same individuals. In the second game they actively recruit a new Overlord as a child and raise him to be their new boss.

* In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'', Bowser encounters a few Monty moles who used to work for him. Turns out they've gone over to Fawful's side.
** This is actually a pretty common trope in the Mario series. Oftentimes you'll notice SuperMarioBros mainstay mooks working for {{Big Bad}}s that have deposed Bowser as the game's antagonist. In a variation, they may just be [[UndergroundMonkey different versions]] of these same enemies themed for the new antagonist in question.
* VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword does this retroactively, wherein Ganon's usual Moblins and Bokoblins serve as Ghirahim and [[spoiler:Demise]]'s minions instead. [[spoiler:Given that Ganon the living incarnation of Demise's hatred, this makes sense]].
