* Jim Raynor from ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' is a borderline case in that he only leaves LaResistance when it has already defeated TheEmpire through dubious means, and [[MeetTheNewBoss begins its transition into the '''new''' Empire]]. He becomes the new Resistance, and throughout ''StarCraft 2'' his major worry is that he'll turn out just as corrupt as his former allies.

* Loki in their newer incarnations. Past Loki successfully noticed that he became {{reliable|Traitor}} in his villainy so he made arrangements to change that by dying and other very extreme measures (like not being one of anything). The kicker is? Most people don't want them to! Why? Because Loki's other setting is a chaotic trickster which is really not something the powers that be can use. [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard Their predictable evil was actually good for making the Asgardians look good in comparison and create an "easily" defeatable threat to stabilize their society]]. So they're currently rebelling against rebelling, because that counter-intuitively causes things to stay the same. Got that?

** This worked because the Black Knights were TooDumbToLive to realize that if Zero had really done what they thought he had, they'd literally be incapable of even thinking about turning on him.
*** And finding out about the Special Zone?
*** The point still stands, [[QuoteMine given the only "evidence" they have is a voice recording from Lelouch basically saying "I did it" in a dull, emotionless tone]]. The technology to doctor something like that almost certainly exists in the Code Geass Universe, and ''none of the Black Knights but Kallen have ever heard Lelouch's real voice.'' And she wasn't even asked to comment before they made a decision! And worse yet, it was a small extract of a much longer conversation that involved [[spoiler:Suzaku realising that Lelouch was lying to him,]] and they didn't bother asking to speak with Suzaku, who was the one the evidence was taken from.
*** Of course, the Black Knights [[spoiler: were a legal organisation by this point, so they were just mutineers.]]
*** The whole IdiotBall was used to HandWave the debate errors and just anchor the point that [[spoiler:Schnizel is such a MagnificentBastard that he can turn an army of rebels into TheEmpire's military without them realizing they've just switched sides]].
** Also Suzaku. He rebels against just about any rebellion possible until, well... [[spoiler:he doesn't anymore and he gets with the program]]. Ironically, this makes him '''TheParagon''' [[spoiler:As he becomes the new ''General of Britannia'', [[ItMakesSenseInContext while the Knights of the Round Table end up becoming ''rebels'']]]].
** In the early stages of its existence, The Order of the Black Knights could already be considered this, since, like Lelouch pointed out to the first members of the Black Knights, traditional terrorism doesn't accomplish anything. This resulted in saving a number of Britannian hostages from a fellow terrorist organization as their first public appearance, so that they could declare themselves as "champions of justice" and gain public support.
*** The aforementioned hostage-taking by the Japan Liberation Front was itself this trope, as it was undertaken by a small clique led by Kusakabe and not approved by the JLF leadership, who preferred the idea of a guerilla war against Britannia.

** When California threatened to succeed from the Union after the election of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the Northern Most Counties threatened to succeed back as the State of Jefferson (not that this was the first time they made such threats, just the first time they made the threat after full State Succession was discussed.).

* Michio Pa in ''Literature/TheExpanse''. She starts out a belter and joins the [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized OPA]] to rebel against the oppression against the inner planets. Then, the leader of the OPA gets her girlfriend killed thanks to sending her [[GeneralRipper on a mission with a bad commanding officer]], so Michio jumps ship and joins the Free Belter Navy, an OPA splinter faction. She then realizes the boss of the Free Belter Navy is TheSociopath who doesn't give a hoot about the Belt at all so she [[StartMyOwn starts her own splinter faction]] inside a splinter faction from a revolutionary organization. [[spoiler:She ends up [[StrangeBedfellows being forced to work with Earth and Mars, the factions she started rebelling against in the first place]], and is voted the head of the Spacing Guild.]]

* Pretty much the morning after the votes were tallied on the UsefulNotes/{{Brexit}}, parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland who had overwhelmingly voted to remain within the EU started wondering whether the United Kingdom should really remain so. What comes of this remains to be seen and will likely depend on the conditions Britain can negotiate.
