* ''{{Concentration}}'' used the Wild Card in all its permutations. It matched whatever the other number selected concealed. On the original, it could be a double-edged sword--if a Wild Card is picked first and the second number revealed a Forfeit, then the player is forced to relinquish a prize from his/her rack (with hope that he/she at least has a gag prize or no prizes at all).

* Even at his most face-ish, the late Wrestling/EddieGuerrero would lie, cheat, and steal to get his way. It was ''on his shirt''. As he once said while teaming with his nephew Chavo, "Hey, we may lie, cheat, and steal -- but at least we're honest about it."

* Wrestling/BethPhoenix slipped into this role when she was moved to Smackdown (she had been a heel on Raw) where she was immediately shown to be out for herself and a bit of a three way feud started between her, Mickie and Michelle [=McCool=] with Beth's allegiance constantly in question. Eventually she made a HeelFaceTurn. Curiously when she turned back Heel she was still getting a large amount of cheers from the crowd, due to her character having a sympathetic point of view -- wanting to make the division about talent instead of looks. So later on they had to make her just care about no one except herself in order to keep her heel, save the part where she still didn't want to hurt Natalya when they competed on opposite sides.

* Wrestling/AJStyles' 2013 FaceHeelTurn has him saying he's sick and tired of doing the right thing and instead he'll do his own thing. During the Wrestling/{{TNA}} roster's war with Aces & Eights, Styles refuses to join either side and instead viciously attacks both sides. Eventually settles into a "dark hero" role, taking the World Title off of Aces & Eights for good and using it to try to make Dixie Carter pay for her managerial mistakes over the years.
** Then in WWE, when the brand split happened and he got put on [[WWESmackDown [=SmackDown=] Live]] while his buddies in [[Wrestling/BulletClub The Club]] went to Raw, Styles's heel run really ended up just being this. He's still incredibly cocky, insults the audience, and complains whenever he got put in a situation he didn't like, but he's still acknowledged, in and out of kayfabe, as a phenomenal wrestler, he never backs down from any fight he gets booked in, and while he does cheat sometimes, he always cheats by himself, as opposed to guys like Wrestling/TheMiz who bring in outside help. The result is that he gets cheers everywhere he goes, even against beloved faces like Wrestling/DeanAmbrose.

* The upcoming ''Going Rogue'' expansion for ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' is giving players this ability: heroes can change into villains, villains can change into heroes, or they can stay somewhere in between as rogues or vigilantes.

* The business calls these folks "Tweeners" (as in, be''neonate'' {{Heel}} and {{Face}}). Essentially, it's when the [[{{Heel}} bad guys]] [[RootingForTheEmpire get heroes' welcomes]]. (Keep in mind, the ''inversions'' of this -- babyfaces who get booed out of the building, or supposed big things who get no reaction at all -- do not qualify as Tweeners; that's called XPacHeat.)

* Polytheus from ''WesternAnimation/MiaAndMe'' can be either on the elves' side or on the villains' side, depending on who currently has something worthwhile to offer him.

*** Funnily enough this tendency of The Joker is precisely why Lex Luthor always tries to include him in large supervillain team-ups whenever possible. If you have a large group of villains getting together and ''don't'' invite the Joker, he's liable to wreck your plans anyway because he feels like he's been snubbed. There's no way for the Joker to ''not'' be a Wild Card, so Luthor has found it safest to just include him in his plans in some capacity and at least trying to get him to cooperate is safer than trying to leave him alone.
