* A coiple of fan-made scenarios for ''VideoGame/PlagueInc: Evolved'', refered as "Antiplague", consist in fighting the pandemic by enforcing measures which either slow down the plague or speed up the research of the cure; the victory condition is to complete the cure.[[note]]Because of technical limitations, the victory screen still says that you wiped out the humanity.[[/note]]

* Creator/GordonRDickson's much earlier ''[[Literature/TheDragonKnight The Dragon and the George]]'' and its sequels had used a variant on this riff.

** Similarly, ''JesusChristSuperstar'' portrays Judas as a "true believer" who has become concerned about the cult of personality surrounding Jesus. He believes the messenger is becoming bigger than the message.

* FinalFantasyTactics does this in-universe. The game explains what really happened and how the villainous heretic Ramza is actually the hero.
* Front Mission exhibits a perspective flip in the purest sense of the trope: The protagonist unit, Carrion Crow, is on five missions of "war against terror" only to learn the truth afterward and defect to the rebels (some sooner than others).

* The musical ''{{Elisabeth}}'' does this to a degree: the title character isn't entirely villianified but she (as well as some other traditional nice guys) are far more flawed than the usual "warm-hearted innocent young beauty" image which looks like she stepped straight out of a Disney movie. (Best example: the incredibly sugary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1IhKzG1NWM&feature=related Sissi movies]].)

* Creator/PiersAnthony's ''For Love of Evil'' is a perspective flip on the other books of the ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series. Satan is the series' antagonist, and this book presents that SatanIsGood, his previous conflicts with the other incarnation all stem from his desire to have God replaced by someone who's less complacent, so that good people don't accidentally wind up in hell when they die. The current god is too self-absorbed by his own magnificence to bother renegotiating the covenant with the devil. The book goes on to show certain good deeds the devil has done during his tenure - saving the Jews from the Holocaust by tricking the Incarnation of time into {{retcon}}ning that part of history (which cost him his friendship with all future Incarnations of Time, who were the only ones to like him to begin with), saving a country from the Black Plague (though he did trick Gaia into engineering it in the first place). In the end, Satan ends up giving up his job (and in doing so being sent to hell) for the love of a new Gaia. [[spoiler:He got better, and came back in time to succeed in having God replaced by his stepdaughter, who would be competent at the job. Only then did the other Incarnations realize Satan was on their side.]]

* The mini-series ''ComicBook/LexLuthorManOfSteel'' shows Franchise/the Franchise/DCUniverse from ComicBook/LexLuthor's perspective as he sees it (or at least would like ''us'' to see it); an ordinary (if, of course, you discount little things like the billions of dollars and scientific genius) human standing up against [[Franchise/{{Superman}} a cold, distant and otherworldly superpowered alien]], whose very existence belittles and demeans human accomplishment.

* ''Film/NoobLaQueteLegendaire'' has short feature that is basically the movie from the point of view of the villain of the in-game plot. The plot of the movie is that the villain, who's controlled by a human player, has basically turned the [[FictionalVideoGame fictional]] {{MMORPG}} in which the story is set into a RaceAgainstTheClock in which a group of players need to obtain a special set of weapons and fight him to stop TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. However, the players who actually do the questline end up being ''very'' secretive about it to avoid it being taken away by the game's elite when most people would be boasting about it. In the bonus short feature, not getting any news about anyone doing the quest gives the guy that started it all the impression that the entire player community is having a WhileRomeBurnsAttitude and is bored out of his mind while waiting for someone to come fight him. The only things that interrupt his boredom are other players passing by his location by cance.
