* ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. In Chapter 3, the Sith Empire has managed to convince the entire Corellian Council, including the Prime Minister, to join them with the promise of making their elected offices [[PresidentForLife lifetime appointments]] with absolute power. However, the Corellian people are not the kind that would willingly role over for foreign invaders (it's Han Solo and Wedge Antilles' homeworld after all). They rise up against the traitorous council and the Sith occupiers, with Republic and Jedi eventually arriving to retake the world, leading to a very DecisiveBattle that [[spoiler: the Republic wins]]. Several quests on the Republic side (both class and faction based) involve chasing down and capturing the traitors so that they can face justice.

* ''VideoGame/SystemShock'': Edward Diego, the CorruptCorporateExecutive who gave the order to remove SHODAN's ethical limiters, thought he could control SHODAN. When cornered and at SHODAN's mercy, he winds up betraying what remains of the human resistance on Citadel Station to her, and is basically worshipping SHODAN as he does so. SHODAN rewards him by turning him into a uniquely powerful cyborg, and seems to have left him at least some measure of free will, though his loyalty to her appears to be absolute. He then becomes her [[TheDragon dragon]], acting as the top enforcer of SHODAN's will on Citadel Station.

** Varan in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E4TheMutants The Mutants]]'' works with the imperialists against his own people, killing the Earth Administrator before he can grant Solos their independence and scornfully hunting his mutated countrymen who he refers to as "mutts" adopting the slurs of the imperial Overlords.

** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Sacred Stones]] has [[spoiler: Orson]], a knight of Renais who joins the invading [[TheEmpire Empire of Grado]] and was granted all of Renais to rule in their name. * [[FarCry3 Vaas]]. He used to be Rakyat, but then there was an "incident" and he joined up as Hoyt's second-in-command. Vaas is usually an unstable crackhead, but whenever he's within ten yards of his boss, he suddenly develops some kind of respect for authority and an indoor voice. Yeah, Hoyt is THAT terrifying.
