* ''XiaolinShowdown'': Raimundo once [[FaceHeelTurn betrayed his friends]] and joined Wuya. He later [[HeelFaceTurn returned to them]]. Omi would later join Chase Young but that was justified by a Wu's effect. Raimundo also joined forces with Hannibal Roy Bean but in that case, he was just a FakeDefector.
* ''JackieChanAdventures'': Tohru's HeelFaceTurn at the end of Season 1.

* ''{{Beyblade}}'': Kai Hiwatari switches sides ''six times''. First, he's part of the antagonistic Blade Sharks. Then he joins the Bladebreakers (first switch). Then he switches sides and joins the Demolition Boys (a FaceHeelTurn, and switch #2). Then he switches sides ''again'' and rejoins the Bladebreakers (three). He stays with them until he goes over to the Blitzkrieg Boys (the Demolition Boys renamed, and switch number four). His next move is to join the bad guys of season three, BEGA (five). Of course, he realizes the error of his ways and switches back again (six).

* Justin Law in ''SoulEater''. Appears to be working for the antagonists (of which there are a few groups), specifically Noah, with a view to uncovering the Kishin. Now, technically, this was what Shinigami ''asked'' him to do (drive Asura out of hiding by making his presence known). But his methods might not go down too well. If this is a ploy, he's [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming really]] [[MadnessMakeover getting]] into [[SlasherSmile it]].

If they're discovered to have been bad the whole time, they're TheMole. If they're a bad guy who's been secretly ''good'', they're the ReverseMole. If they're faking their switch, they're a FakeDefector or HeelFaceMole. If they switch back and forth, they're going through the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor. The DefectorFromDecadence often falls under this.

HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.

There are several possible motivations. Someone who decides that their side is corrupt or otherwise unworthy may become a DefectorFromDecadence; someone who simply wants to end up on the winning team may decide that IFightForTheStrongestSide.

* Cypher, in ''TheMatrix''.
* ''LittleGiants'': Spike Hammersmith when he leaves the Little Giants and plays for the Cowboys after initially joining the Giants because Danny fibbed and said he was Kevin. Considering how he was tricked into joining the Little Giants in the first place, can anyone really hold it against Spike?
