* Team Q of ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''. Teams C and D, while also introducing a character each with Carlos and Diana, they also have veteran from the past ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' games, Junpei and Akane for Team C and Sigma and Phi for Team D. Team Q are made up of three people introduced in their game with their leader, Q, being an amnesiac who got thrown in with the others for the Decision Game (everyone else was a coworker in the DCOM facility).

The Wild Card is so used to swinging between teams that they have no default "good" or "evil" CharacterAlignment or even a "home team". This trope, on the other hand, truly isn't interested in consistently remaining with either side, and will very often simply want both to leave him alone. He can be the sort of person who will stay out of things entirely, until someone else (usually the hero or other sympathetic character) asks him for help.

* The page quote comes from Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord, a French diplomat who embodied this trope a couple of hundred years ago. He started out under the Gallic Church and King Louis XVI, switched sides to the anti-Church, anti-Royalist Republic, ditched them to help Napoleon seize power, converted ''back'' just as Napoleon had allied with Russia, convened the Senate that legally dismissed Napoleon, and finally threw his support to the Citizen King Louis-Philippe. All this time he remained powerful and influential, and even managed to stay out of prison. TheOtherWiki says he was known as "The Prince of Diplomats" but Napoleon himself came up with the perhaps equally fitting (if less flattering) label "shit in a silk stocking".

More recent scholarship suggests that he saw himself not as betraying any particular regime, but [[LoyalToThePosition always serving the interests of France as a state and nation]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Colorless King from ''Anime/{{K}}'' is called this InUniverse by the other Kings, due to the fact that his power "to affect other Kings" is unknown until it manifests in a particular generation. [[spoiler: The character himself counts as this as well, once he is finally revealed]].
** Mercenary [[GratuitousNinja ninja]] Douhan Hirasaka might also count, seeing as she ends up [[spoiler: helping Scepter 4 defeat the Green Clan, JUNGLE,]] even while remaining a U-rank member of JUNGLE. The Green King anticipated that not all members would be loyal, but I doubt he anticipated the extent of damage one or two members could cause.

* Wrestling/ChrisJericho makes a career out of doing this, knowing well how to manipulate the crowd. Once, he returned from a year-and-a-half hiatus, trolled the audience with a video that had nothing to do with him, did nothing but walk around saying "Come on, baby!" for ''ten minutes'', and left. And he was still cheered.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle will often be cheered regardless of his status as a face or heel due to his incredible in-ring ability. In fact, he once cut a promo proving exactly this: After saying that he is not a fan of "the black people" and wanting to make Jesus Christ tap out, he said people ''still'' wouldn't boo him because they knew he was the best in the world.

*** The Straw Hats are one of the best examples out there. Most pirate crews are motivated by money or power. The Straw Hats do whatever amuses Luffy and legitimately don't care what the consequences are. This has led to them taking down two of the [[CarnivalOfKillers Seven Warlords of the Sea]] (going on three as of the Dressrosa arc), declaring war on the [[OneWorldOrder World Government]], and picking a fight with one of the [[TheDreaded Four Emperors]].
