* ''Videogame/BaldursGate'' has a few, but Haer'Dalis from ''Baldur's Gate II'' is a shining example of the trope. He's a tiefling (demonkin) from a wholly different plane of existence who joins the party to do some sightseeing, seduction, and provocation.

* [[Characters/KingdomHeartsOrganizationXIII Axel]][=/=]Lea from the ''KingdomHearts'' series is this trope all-over (in ''ChainOfMemories'' especially, where he was quite the aforementioned "Getting The Job Done" type), until ''KingdomHearts3D'' where his character development had him graduate from AntiVillain to [[HeelFaceTurn outright-good-guys territory.]]

* A literal example on ''Series/WheelOfFortune''- a sparkly red "Wild Card" is placed on the Wheel. When you land on the space with it and call out a correct letter, you pick it up. Lucky players who don't hit Bankrupt can then take it to the Bonus Round, where it gives them an additional consonant of their choice. ** And from their semi-sister series ''Series/TheJokersWild'', the titular Joker acted as this- if you landed on on, you could make it double as a second category symbol and play that category for double its' value. You could also use a Joker to call for a category that hadn't been spun (termed "going off the board"). Spinning three Jokers pretty much won the game, though you needed to give a correct answer to win.

** To a lesser extent, Byakuya Togami from the first game, ''VisualNoval/DanganRonpa'' may also qualify. He loudly proclaims his intent to graduate (which means killing someone) and is willing to meddle with crime scenes to "make things more interesting". However, he does [[SubvertedTrope eventually get over it]] and [[HeelFaceTurn join forces with the other students]] to escape.

* Nagito Komaeda in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''. He claims to be on the side of hope, but this also includes the hope of the blackened, meaning he's willing to assist the murderers despite their victory meaning his death. He'll also try to spread despair himself, in the hopes that the hope of the other students can overcome it. This means his actions and allegiances are completely unpredictable from moment to moment.

* ''{{Lobo}}'' the Main Man has fought against and along side with several DC heroes and villains. Most of the time he does it because he's a bounty hunter, and he gets paid for what he does, or he felt like doing it.

* Wrestling/JohnCena, despite turning Face in late 2003, still used Heel tactics to win some of his matches such as the one at Wrestlemania XX when he used the steel chain to defeat Big Show. Since dropping the rapper elements of his gimmick and becoming the face of the franchise he still falls short of being TheCape despite the company's presentations, engaging in the occasional dirty tactic and contradiction of message and changing his promo cut-down tactics from being straightforward disses to relying on BlatantLies and SmugSuper condescension to press the occasional BerserkButton. A closer analysis of the dissonance involved with his character and push might conclude that part of the problem with Cena is he behaves like a tweener yet though the company insists on shilling him as the purest hero in the history of wrestling, which only adds to the clear perception that corporate pull is the main thing that's keeping him on top.

* 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.

* 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.

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.
