* In ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 5}}'', [[spoiler:Majorita was singularly raised to fulfill Void Dark's agenda in resurrecting Liezerota, under the false pretenses that she would help create a demon utopia; he only really took her on board because her Overload, which reanimates the fallen as zombies, was key to his design. Suffice it to say she didn't take it well when the truth was laid bare for her.]]

** Bounty Hunter: [[spoiler: If the player back-talks Darth Tormen, he will make a rather unpleasant example of your companion, force-choking them almost to death. At the end of the class story you have the option of making him pay dearly for using and underestimating you.]]

* In ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories'', when a botched summoning causes Etna's levels to sink to 1, her Prinnies waste no time abandoning her. In fact, they fight so hard to avoid her employment that the rest of the party wonders just what kind of BadBoss she was.

** This is essentially the plan for The Empire against the Thalmor; bide their time, pretending to be a Vichy France like state until the time is right to invoke this trope.

** This is essentially the plan for The Empire against the Thalmor; bide their time, pretending to be a Vichy France like state until the time is right to invoke this trope. Sadly part of their "biding for time" includes having to follow the orders passed down from the Thalmor to avoid arousing suspicion, even if said orders are to enforce Thalmor laws, which include denouncing Talos as a god. This in turn causes anger in Skyrim, which is populated mainly by Nords who worship Talos, and leads to the Stormcloak Rebellion taking hold. So basically Skyrim can be summed up as "Dogs biting back at dogs waiting to bite back."

* Foreshadowed in ''[[VideoGame/DefJamSeries Def Jam: Fight for NY]]'' when the player's boss notes that "A beaten dog may fear you, but the moment you turn your back, he's gonna strike." Indeed, at the climax the ManipulativeBastard villain dies because [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere his minions abandon him]].

unfortunate implications need citations
** Played straight with the Warden's husband though; although thinking about it, his dialogue suggests he's pissed off from having to look after the kids all day while his spouse works...and so he'll happily HELP THE HEAVILY-ARMED SOCIOPATHS, WHO JUST BROKE INTO HIS HOUSE, KILL THE SOLE BREAD-WINNER. UnfortunateImplications, indeed. (But then, she is a prison warden, so fuck knows which end of this ass-backwards relationship is more to blame here)

Charon may obey whatever command his boss gives him, but he still has a conscience - and once that contract changes hands, he will make his feelings known.

** Alternatively, you can use some other intel to convince Parker that you've derailed all the scenarios he's made for a new Cold War and he'll decide to save his own hide by selling Halbech down the river. Then, you can use Marburg's dossier and RelationshipValues to convince Marburg that Halbech is going down a certain creek without a paddle and he'll bug out as well. The end result is that the boss battle turns into a battle against a few mooks while Parker is busy copying and uploading the files he'd otherwise be busy deleting.
