* The initial BigBad of ''WebAnimation/MadnessCombat'' is the Sheriff, though after Hank kills him, his [[TheDragon Dragon]] [[DarkMessiah Jesus]] briefly takes the role. Then [[MonsterClown Tricky]] comes in and kills him, stealing the role from him. It's eventually revealed though, that the overall BigBad was the Auditor, as he was manipulating everything through the Improbability Drive.

* In GuildWars Prophecies, the first campaign, you begin with the Charr being set up as big bads and destroyers of your home kingdom. Then you travel through the Shiverpeak mountains with the Stone Summit Dwarves taking over their role as primary antagonists, especially when they [[spoiler: kill Prince Rurik.]] When you arrive in Kryta however, the undead and the Lich Lord pop up as a new bad until [[spoiler: you find out the truth about and are betrayed by the White Mantle]] who then proceed to hunt you down for a good portion of the game. You then go through a lot of trouble to Ascend and be able to see and fight their "gods" [[spoiler: the Mursaat]], when suddenly you're thrown back against the Stone Summit Dwarves and finally deal with their leader, then back to the [[spoiler: Mursaat. Then out of the blue it turns out that one of your closest allies of the last half of the game was in fact the Lich Lord in disguise and he uses your actions to take control of the Titans, another race of superpowered baddies,]] and you end up facing him as the final big bad.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' winds up doing one in its final act, due to its enormous GambitPileup finally getting resolved. For most of the game, the apparent BigBad is [[HiddenAgendaVillain Lynx]] - who turns out to be an avatar of the rogue supercomputer [[AIIsACrapshoot FATE]]. Defeating [=FATE=], however, allows the [[GaiasVengeance Dragon Gods]] to return to their true form and busily get to work on destroying humanity. And it's only after you defeat the Dragon Gods that you learn the entire plot was orchestrated as a setup to create a weapon capable of defeating the ''real'' BigBad, the [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Time Devourer]].
