* Justin Law in ''Manga/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]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Azula joins forces with the imprisoned Long Feng and takes control of his [[SecretPolice Dai Li agents]] to capture the Avatar, overthrow the king, and free Long Feng from prison. Once the Earth Kingdom is under their control, Long Feng wants to dump her and rule by himself. However, during the time of her leadership, the Dai Li have come to greatly appreciate the ability and ruthlessness of Azula, so they just ignore his order to capture her, waiting for them to prove who is more worthy of their loyalty.

* Tharja, ''Franchise/FireEmblem''
** Many recruitable characters start out on the enemy side, but can either be persuaded to join by your Lord character persuading them that their cause is wrong, your Lord character giving them a fat sack of cash, or a friend/relative/lover asking them to switch sides. Some examples include Beowulf from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'', who will turn against his employers if someone carrying 10,000 gold talks to him, and Tharja
from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', is a Plegian Dark Mage who finds herself disillusioned with her home nation and can join up with the Shepherds if Chrom talks to her.her.
** Treason in the heroes' home country or allies is also common. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Binding Blade]]'' is particularly rife with this. Several lords in the so-called Lycian League throw in with [[TheEmpire Bern]] when it invades. A huge chunk of Ostia's army also betrays their land after Marquess Hector is killed and plot to kill his daughter Lilina. (They fail.)

* Not that Kallor made the most trustworthy impression beforehand, but his betrayal still comes as a bit of a shock to his superiors in ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. Nobody thought that he would willingly [[spoiler: join the Crippled God just to get a shot at Silverfox]].

* ''XiaolinShowdown'': Raimundo once [[FaceHeelTurn betrayed his friends]] and joined Wuya. He later [[HeelFaceTurn returned to them]].
