* ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'': When Nazis invade Earth-1, one of their collaborators is none other than [[spoiler:Earth-1's Reverse-Flash]] who has no problem helping Nazis conquer his own dimension. Unlike most examples of this trope, he isn't motivated by [[AmbitionIsEvil power]] or [[DirtyCoward self-preservation]], but is implied to [[ForTheEvulz do it for the kicks]].

* The first against the wall when the revolution ''ends'', as the newly freed heroes are only too eager to convict the heinous traitor in a court of law (or just lynch him in the street). This is what happened to the historical Quisling, as the Norwegians ''re-instituted the death penalty just to apply it to him.''

* In one of the greatest ironies of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini ended up becoming one himself during the Italian Campaign in the later years of the conflict. Early in the war, he had been a fascist dictator and conqueror in his own right, having come to power 11 whole years before Hitler, and with plans to carve out a "new Roman Empire" across the Mediterranean, for which he would inevitably need Quislings of his own. However, the Allies and his own monumental incompetence thwarted those plans and in 1943, the Allies singled him out to be the first Axis leader to fall. After the invasion of Sicily, with the Italian people angry and fed up with him, Mussolini was overthrown by King Victor Emmanuel III and General Badoglio, who signed an armistice that effectively saw Italy change sides and join the Allies. The Nazis didn't like that, and ordered the troops they had in the country to take Italy back. German commandos freed Mussolini from his prison and he was appointed head of the "Italian Social Republic", or RSI. However, the RSI was just a puppet state for the Nazis, with Mussolini and his fellow Italian fascists now fully subservient to Hitler and the ''Wehrmacht''.

He was so hated by his own people that when he was finally recaptured near the end of the war, he was executed by firing squad and his body was unceremoniously strung up in public.

** Gatherer Hade in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E4TheSunMakers The Sun Makers]]" fits the trope to a tee: With humanity enslaved by the Usurian Corporation, Hade delights in lording it over the workers while acting in an obsequious manner towards the Usurian representative the Collector. When a revolution breaks out, they quickly give him a DisneyVillainDeath.
