* ''Dracula Ruler of the Night'': Lucy takes to being a vampire surprisingly well that Dracula comments it feels as if she had been one of his usual brides all along despite being a turned one in the modern time. Likewise, Lucy's mother, Minerva, gives into vampirism pretty fast after being bitten by her daughter, though does gripe a bit on being bitten at an older age.
-->'''Minerva''': (To the hunter during a confrontation) I am envious, to become a walking corpse at this age. Still stuck with every wrinkle of my twilight years. -Sigh- Oh well, to feel younger is a most excellent prestige.

* {{Invoked|Trope}} and {{Subverted|Trope}} with the undead in ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''. [[BigBad Dark Pegasus]] created the undead virus in order to raise an [[NightOfTheLivingMooks evil army]] at his beck and call, and expected this to happen; unfortunately for him, the undead raised with their memories and personalities intact, and most tried to return to their normal lives.

* In ''VideoGame/CivilizationBeyondEarth'', [[HumanityIsSuperior Purity]]-aligned factions see [[{{BioPunk}} Harmony]] and [[{{Cyberpunk}} Supremacy]] factions as a bunch of transhumanist nutbars who are tossing away their humanity - as well as the needy humans back on Earth - to run off and turn themselves into freaky half-alien mutants and cyborgs, respectively. [[GreyAndGrayMorality However]], Purity factions may or may not be simply ANaziByAnyOtherName if some of their flavour quotes are any indication, so there is room for this trope to be {{Inverted|Trope}}.

That said, even pure Harmony and pure Supremacy think the followers of the Harmony-Supremacy hybrid affinity are going too far.

If this FaceHeelTurn is too quick, it gives the impression that one of the other things is going, like TheDarkSide, or WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity. However; this trope may be justified a couple of ways. If TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody it doesn't matter that vampire Dan doesn't want to drink human blood, [[SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness he has to]], and trying to be [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire friendly]] won't last. Alternately, someone seeking the CurseThatCures may make the painful choice to switch sides to save their life. If the setting has an ongoing "[[FantasticRacism race war]]" against what the character has become, if they don't join their new race they'll quickly face death. However most of the time the switch in alliances comes about with alarming speed and lack of concern. At best you'll see these {{Big Bad Friend}}s offer the transformation to a friend or loved one... and kill them if they refuse. TheDarkSide, [[EvilTastesGood they have cookies.]]
