* Played with in ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' where a trio of the Servbots leave the Bonne Family Pirates team and decide to open a restaurant on Kattelox Island. The irony being that, despite how harsh she can treat them, Tron Bonne thinks of them as family and rather than simply leaving they clearly asked her permission to do it, and she not only gave it but actually ''helped them legally take out a loan to do it''.



** Even before Megabyte gets rid of them they tend to help Bob whenever Megabyte isn't available to give orders, like when he turned into the mindless Megatruck or became Gigabyte.

** Even before Megabyte gets rid of them they tend to help Bob whenever Megabyte isn't available to give orders, like when he turned into the mindless Megatruck or became Gigabyte. They have an odd relationship with Bob where they always secretly counted on him to stop them from [[MoralEventHorizon going too far]], and realizing he's no longer around to stop them from doing something horrific [[spoiler: such as ''murdering'' Cyrus]] is what pushes them into pulling a [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Screw This We're Outta Here]].

* Franchise/StargateVerse: Most of an entire race of mooks did this over the course of the series. The Jaffa started out worshipping the [[BigBad Goa'uld]] as [[PhysicalGod literal gods]] and served them as foot soldiers. In the pilot episode, a Jaffa leader defected from his people to help the main characters. Over the course of the series, it's revealed that he was long skeptical of the Goa'uld's purported godhood. He is a member of the [[NinetiesAdventureShow team]] while contributing to a seditious rebel movement among the Jaffa at the same time. Eventually that movement [[spoiler: grows and, with the help of the Tau'ri and other factions, defeats the Goa'uld. A democratic government of Jaffa is founded.]]

->''"Henchmen. Evil, obedient, bright -- pick any two."''
->"But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, 'Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.'\\
\\
"Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?'”
