Added DiffLines:

** It also does this to many [=SHIELD=] agents who had appeared throughout the [=MCU=]'s existence who were revealed to be [[spoiler:Hydra moles]], including Jasper Sitwell and Senator Stern.
* Although neither side was ever shown to be completely in the right or wrong (being a Captain America movie, we can assume that Team Cap were the "heroes" and Team Iron Man the "villains"), the two sides of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' rapidly approach lethal measures in the airport fight, culminating in a shot meant for Falcon from Vision's soul gem instead hitting War Machine's Arc Reactor, cutting off the suit's power and paralyzing him from the waist down in the resulting crash. Despite this, Iron Man still relents upon finding Cap and Bucky in Siberia, until Zemo reveals that the Winter Soldier killed Stark's parents, launching Iron Man into a rage-fueled, NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on the pair.
* Most of the Hulk's first scene in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' is spent beating the ever-loving snot out of Thor. Even when Thor survives the fight, Hulk is more antagonistic towards Thor than previous films might have suggested. It takes Black Widow's message from the end of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' to snap Hulk out of it and return him to Bruce Banner.
** Also inverted in the same film. Loki, who was the villain of ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', becomes an unwitting ally in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' and is fully redeemed by the end of ''Ragnarok''.

** Throughout the series, Hermaeus Mora, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Knowledge]], was always a neutral entity, even if he could be a bit ruthless in achieving his goals.

** The Illusive Man is the founder of the NGOSuperpower Cerberus that performs all manner of mad science experiments to ensure humanity's survival. While Cerberus was presented as villains in the first game through their unethical experiments, in the second they bring Shepard BackFromTheDead and prove themselves to be [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremists]] by explaining their previous actions and doing everything they can to help him/her stop the Reapers. However by the third game, [[spoiler: they turn into full-blown villains due to the Illusive Man's indoctrination by the Reapers and perform actions such as attempting to provoke a war between the Turians and Krogan, hunting down Shepard's former teammates, and turning people into Husks]].

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'', while Donnel Udina is never a ''[[CorruptPolitician likable]]'' character, he is at least consistently presented as an advocate for humanity, and receives several PetTheDog moments in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' after the invasion of Earth, which makes it all the more surprising when [[spoiler: he turns out to be TheMole for Ceberus and helps with the attempted coup on the Citadel]], although it's implied he did so out of desperation following the invasion.
