** 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 was still incredibly cocky, insulted the audience, and complained 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, 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 business calls these folks "Tweeners" (as in, be''tween'' {{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.)

* Maxie Dasai from ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' version three who, whilst not stabbing anybody in the back or outright betraying them, was prone to walking out on groups or partners that she felt wouldn't benefit her. She wasn't exactly cowardly or villainous per se, but Maxie was definitely not somebody to be relied on.
* She-Beast, daughter of the supervillain Dr. Diabolik in the ''WhateleyUniverse'', looks to be in it for whatever she can get out of the deal. Usually hangs with the other Bad Seeds (children of supervillains), but seems to have a thing for Phase.

* Nico Robin from ''OnePiece'' used to be one, jumping from crew to crew to find the Poneglyphs until she got in with the Straw Hats.

** The Straw Hats are seen as a whole crew of Wild Cards by the world at large. There are certain unspoken rules that pirates are expected to follow. The Straw Hats do not follow them. When Zoro almost attacks a World Noble (the penalty for which is being hunted down by a Marine Admiral), a bystander notes, "I heard the Straw Hats were crazy, but..."
*** 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 three of the [[CarnivalOfKillers Seven Warlords of the Sea]], declaring war on the [[OneWorldOrder World Government]], and picking a fight with one of [[TheDreaded the Four Emperors]].

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has Mr. Gold, a.k.a. Rumplestilstkin, the type of Wild Card [[The Chessmaster in control of virtually everything that goes on]] in the series, even other villains and Wild Cards. He has made deals left and right, from the miller's daughter Cora her two daughters [[spoiler:Zelena the Wicked Witch]] and Evil Queen Regina, all the way down to Jekyll and Hyde. Gold/Rumple does many things that help the heroes and defeated his own villainous father [[spoiler:Peter Pan]], telling him that villains don't get happy endings... only to turn around later and try to help three other villains (Cruella, Maleficent, and Ursula) get their happy endings! He really seems to know how to make others owe him! Other than his loyalty solely to himself, it can be [[InMysteriousWays hard to decode his rhyme or reason]] a lot of times for whose he picks-and-chooses as temporary ally.

* Gary Karkofsky a.k.a Merciless: The Supervillain without MercyTM in ''Literature/TheSupervillainySaga'' certainly qualifies. Not only is a CardCarryingVillain despite being a {{Antivillain}}, he's also got many friends on both sides of the superhero/supervillain divide. As a result, he may side with one group or the other depending on his feelings at the time.

* From ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', all three members of [[AntiHeroTeam Team Dark]]. In spite of ending up doing the right thing, they have shaky allegiances. Shadow fights whoever gets in the way of his goals; Rouge is only interested in jewels; and Omega attacks whatever the former two point him at.

** Knuckles the Echidna is always ready to fight without hesitation anyone who seeks to steal the Master Emerald or threatens his mission to protect it. This gets exploited by Dr. Eggman, who has a tendency of tricking him into believing that Sonic is his enemy. In fact, before {{Flanderization}} kicked in, the Rad Red was more of a neutral character than a hero.
