Contrast with JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and/or MoralEventHorizon, which are more permanent. See also CompressedVice for problems other than villainy (though they may be cause for it) that last an episode.

Contrast with JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and/or MoralEventHorizon, which are more permanent. permanent and generally take place in a series with a standard level of continuity (though the MoralEventHorizon can take place in a NegativeContinuity show and overlap with this in some special cases). See also CompressedVice for problems other than villainy (though they may be the cause for it) that last an episode.

Ed", when [[spoiler: he turned out to be the one who got the Eds in trouble, as retaliation for Eddy giving him an atomic wedgie.]]
** Ed himself is this in "Little Ed Blue" (where he was violently ill-tempered all day [[spoiler: because of [[RampageFromANail a pebble stuck in his shoe]]]]) and "The Day the Ed Stood Still".Still" (when he dressed up as a space monster and [[LostInCharacter got a little too into character]]).



** Spike the dragon is normally good, but becomes envious in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E24OwlsWellThatEndsWell Owl's Well That Ends Well]] at the attention Owlowicious is getting. This drives him to do some very morally objectionable things complete with a DastardlyWhiplash, such as planting a fake mouse corpse to try to make it look like Owlowicious killed the mouse. [[note]]When called out on this, he runs away from home, tries to hide in a cave that happens to belong to another dragon... a dragon who seems like he's about to kill or at least severely hurt Spike... but Spike ends up getting saved, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming by Owlowicious. And then Twilight Sparkle reassures Spike he still has an important place in their social circle, prompting Spike to apologize for what he's done]]. By the end of the episode, Spike is pretty much one of the good guys again.[[/note]]

This is for when a character who is normally neutral, good, or at least on the overall side of good, temporarily switches sides and/or has a noticeable temporary drop in morality. May be caused and justified by a character being NotHimself. Otherwise NegativeContinuity will likely play a huge role. The latter is especially true in nonsensical and farcical comedies where consistency is not a strong element. The character will go back to being his or her old self by either the end of the episode or the next episode.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' most main characters have their own episodes as antagonistic threats, usually when they get the motivation to screw the rest of the cast over. A special mention goes to Irwin who in most episodes despite being obviously slimy and self-serving is merely the victim of some magical mishap but whenever he gets any sort of power it always gets to his stupid head and uses to take advantage and subjugate the other characters even his supposed friends.

Added DiffLines:

* Agent Washington from RedVsBlue is temporarily half of a BigBadDuumvirate during the latter part of RedVsBlueTheRecollection, but at the end returns to the heroes' side and stays there for the rest of the show.

** Actually, he was a villain even before the inVasion, forming an alliance with [=Vince McMahon=] and TripleH. He just went along with the rest of WWE against WCW/ECW as part of an EnemyMine scenario, and (because he was WWE Champion), everyone in WWE assumed he'd stand with them.

** Just about almost every main character have their moments of temporary villainy. [[LethallyStupid Patrick Star]], [[EvilisPetty Mr. Krabs]], and [[AntiHero Squidward Tentacles]] in particular.
