* For ''{{Franchise/Transformers}}'', it's very common for Hasbro and Takara to re-release an existing toy model with a black repaint. This business model is common enough that it has [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Spontaneous_recoloration its own page]] at the [[Wiki/TFWikiDotNet Transformers Wiki]] which explains these changes as "Spontaneous Recoloration". ''{{Webcomic/Shortpacked}}'' frequently [[TakeThat takes shots]] at this. Often, though, the change isn't good/evil, but a powerup that leaves the character's personality alone.

** When Rhinox is reprogrammed as a Predacon, his normally-brownish hide gains a purplish hue, and his gold accents become silver. Once he's restored as a Maximal, he returns to his original colors.

** There's also the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Black_repaint Black Repaint]] page at [=TFWiki=], which covers when toys are specifically recolored black. In a great many cases, the recolors are issued as {{Evil Twin}}s, especially if it's a version of Optimus Prime (although some black Optimus Primes are simply cases of Optimus Prime wearing black). Again, though, if the recolored toy represents the same character as the original version, it generally doesn't affect the character's personality.

* ''Anime/TransformersHeadmasters'' has the first in-story cases in the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' franchise. After Soundwave and Blaster are both blown up, they get rebuilt into new bodies that are virtually identical to their originals, but with new colors: the blue Soundwave becomes the black Soundblaster, while the primarily-red Blaster ([[DubNameChange who was known as Broadcast in Japan]]) becomes the blue Twincast.
