* In ''FanFic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'' [[spoiler:Shinji]] (A.K.A Agent "Balcony") is both TheMole and a ReverseMole. On one hand he is feeding information to the enemy about what the organization he works for is up to. On the other hand, given WHAT that organization is up to, and what he is trying to avert (including the deaths of those ones he cares for), you would be hard-pressed to call him a bad guy (and if they knew about his motives, it is highly doubtful nobody bar [[spoiler:Gendo and SEELE]] would call him a traitor). He is essentially a good guy pretends to be a bad guy pretending to be a good guy.

Scimitar's [[UndercoverCopReveal identity is finally revealed]] when [[spoiler: she arrives at Harm's room and [[spoiler: turns on the shower so they can talk in private.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' [[PlayingWithATrope played with this trope]] in the first season finale. [[MagnificentBastard Slade]] [[TheReveal reveals]] his season-long EvilPlan to [[TheHero Robin]]: Slade had [[spoiler:lured Robin away from the rest of the Titans, leaving them to deactivate his "Chronoton Detonator" which was actually a device that injected them with deadly nanites, allowing Slade to kill them with the push of a button]]. After this reveal, Slade [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn made Robin his new apprentice]]]], thus making Robin [[PlayingWithATrope somewhat]] of a FakeDefector, albeit [[spoiler:with the [[ManipulativeBastard villain]] commandeering the [[ThePlan operation]] specifically designed to make the unwilling defector comply and [[WeWouldHaveToldYouBut prevent him from informing his comrades]] because [[SadisticChoice then, they would most assuredly die]], thereby making the goodies, ''not the bad guys'', the ones to be deceived by the hero's false defection.]] Following the establishment of his apprenticeship under Slade via a little crime spree and [[ShootYourMate a show-down with his ex-teammates]] Robin's friends fully believe that he has been lost to TheDarkSide, for good. This makes the discovery that Robin was really [[spoiler: [[ReverseMole on their side the entire time]]]] all the more surprising, from their P.O.V.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Lisa enters a singing contest hosted by Krusty, with Homer as her manager. After she fires Homer for being a JerkAss, he begins managing her competitor... who then loses all his fans and popularity in the final. Homer shows himself to be a ReverseMole to Lisa at the end.

* A very interesting and "this movie has an insane number of twists" version in ''Film/HouseOfFlyingDaggers''. [[spoiler:Jin pretends to go to the good side before going for an actual HeelFaceTurn, but everybody thinks that he's still working for the government. Then we find that Leo, who set up Jin's finding out where the Flying Daggars were, is actually one of the Flying Daggars and was [[TheMole a mole]].]]

Compare HeelFaceTurn and MookFaceTurn. If the villain ''forces'' the goodie to join him, it may be a SadisticChoice or IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure. Contrast HeelFaceMole, where a villain with a known history of being evil fakes being good to infiltrate the hero's side. An UndercoverCopReveal is frequently this.

Also contrast GoodAllAlong, which involves characters that seem evil but doesn't have relation to the BigBad.

* [[spoiler:Sullivan, Jenner's henchman]] in ''TheSecretOfNIMH'' is probably only working for evil under threat of coercion, so it's not surprising that he pulls a HeelFaceTurn at the last moment. Unfortunately, RedemptionEqualsDeath.

* In ''Film/TheDeparted'', Costigan is a cop hired to infiltrate the Boston mob. Since we know this right from the start, it doesn't trigger an UndercoverCopReveal.

* While [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]] is a bad guy, she only joined Strength In Numbers when they approached her in the Pro Wrestling Syndicate so she could set them up to catch a beat down from the Backseat Girlz, the biggest good guy group in the Bombshell's division who S.I.N. was planning to ambush. She did this because she believed Missy Sampson and Annie Social to be {{worthy opponent}}s.[[/folder]]

* After spending the better part of 2013 getting screwed over by Wrestling/TheAuthority, [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] publicly gave up fighting a machine he could not beat on his own and joined Wrestling/TheWyattFamily for supposed help on the last show of that year. He actually did this to get closer to Wrestling/BrayWyatt, who had been giving him almost as much trouble as the Authority, taking revenge "early" in January on 2014 after the Wyatts tried to pull a YouHaveFailedMe on him.
