* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' has you control Naja during the ActionPrologue; after you get control of TheHero Kyrie, though, Naja becomes an antagonist dead-set on preventing Kyrie's LoveInterest Morte from using his powers to end the world (Kyrie himself [[AntiAntiChrist isn't big on wanting to end the world]], either, but [[LoveMakesYouDumb definitely does want to help Morte]] and that's what ''she'' wants). Of course, given the game's playing with BlackAndGreyMorality and VillainProtagonist, it's hard to say controlling Naja actually counts as "villain" shoes. There's also a segment later in the game where you lose Kyrie and take control of Morte in his place, [[spoiler: but by that point she's reconsidered destroying the world and decided she'd rather try to fix it instead.]]

* The Nintendo DS version of ''CrashOfTheTitans'' features short sections after each boss where you play as Cortex's niece, Nina.
* In ''TonicTrouble'', you get a chance to disguise yourself as the game's villain at one point, which is used to fool a guard into opening a door for you.

* ''{{Halo 2}}'' has you play as the Arbiter for quite some time. The Arbiter is an Elite, with a very specific grudge against the Master Chief for destroying one of the halo rings, and for being the whole reason he was in that mess. The two never directly fight, but the thought was definitely there.

* The game based on the first ''Film/SpiderMan'' movie did this trope with a twist: after beating the game once, a NewGamePlus was unlocked where you played as the Green Goblin...which, in this case, was ''Harry'' Osborn trying to find out what happened to his father. You still played through exactly the same stages, with the Norman version of the Goblin having a [[EvilSoundsDeep distorted, deepened voice]].

* ''CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' has one level where you play as BigBad Raul Menendez. He is ''noticeably'' more powerful than a normal ''Call of Duty'' protagonist, and the entire level is pretty much a complete one-man rampage.

* In ''Ultimate {{Spider-Man}}'' for Nintendo DS, the first level is playable with Green Goblin.
** In the home console versions (and maybe the DS, I don't know), you control Venom, the main villain, for about half of the missions. Despite this shared screentime, he is still clearly the villain, as the player always controls Spider-Man during their fights.
