* In the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' mass team-up fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8365767/1/Crimson-Rising Crimson Rising]]'', when Ivan Ooze returns to Earth, a new organisation known as Section Nine is revealed to have been monitoring the Power Rangers for years, and the general in charge declares that all Rangers are vigilantes and must either work with him or be arrested. Most Rangers choose to remain independent even after the general arrests Mr Collins and freezes Anton Mercer's assets, but Will, the [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Operation Overdrive]] Black Ranger, freely turns on the rest of the Rangers, denouncing them all as failures where he prefers to remain well-paid. While Dax, the Overdrive Blue Ranger, remains with Will, Mack immediately rejects the 'offer' and Ronny and Rose join the other Rangers as soon as they witness the lengths the government will go to trying to control the other Rangers. Will remains with Section Nine for some time, using their own zords while trying to outdo the 'renegade' Rangers, [[spoiler:but he officially defects to join the other Rangers when he witnesses his employers attempting to torture Tori Hanson's little sister to get her father to cooperate]].

Added DiffLines:

** Chapter 46 sees [[spoiler:Bill Weasley go so far as to attack Fleur when he learns that she's trying to help Harry, claiming that Harry is "going to get what's coming to him" and casting a spell that is verging on dark magic]].
* The ''Series/{{Friends}}'' fic "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1242073/1/TO-On-the-Streets TO On the Streets]]" takes Judy Geller's poor relationship with Monica to the extreme, as she not only orders Monica to leave the house on her eighteenth birthday, but claims that Jack and Ross are aware of this plan and went on holiday to Paris just to avoid dealing with it, when in reality they had no idea and return to find Judy claiming that Monica stole some things and ran away on her own. When Ross learns the truth when he is invited to Chandler's wedding to Monica (Chandler and Ross having fallen out of touch after college before Chandler ran into him by chance), Jack is devastated to learn what his daughter has been through, to the point that he all but explicitly leaves Judy and expresses disgust at himself for not recognising her for what she was earlier.


* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciTiwXemSGo : Two Villains]] (TheAbridgedSeries version of ''Anime/MyHeroAcademiaTheTwoHeroes'') does this with the antagonists. In the actual movie, [[spoiler: David Shield]] hired the terrorists to [[spoiler: stage an attack he can steal back his confiscated invention, only for them to double-cross him and take it for themselves]]. In this version, the terrorists are completely acting on their own, [[EvilIsPetty upset that KFC cancelled their order because they were busy helping cater the convention]]. However, [[spoiler: [[AdaptationNameChange David Wayne]]]] still takes advantage of this to [[spoiler: pull a BatmanGambit where he knew they would make off with his invention, because it's also a mind control device that lets him serve as the FinalBoss by controlling Wolfram]]. The reason? [[spoiler: He understandably wants revenge on All Might [[WithFriendsLikeThese for being a terrible friend to him and practically ruining his life]], [[GreenEyedMonster but he's also]] ''[[ParentalIncest sexually attracted to his own daughter]]'' ([[EvenEvilHasStandards though a joke implies that]] [[DoWrongRight he at least waited until she was legal]]).]] [[{{Squick}} Aside from the latter]], Deku's reason for taking them on is that [[VillainHasAPoint while he agrees about All Might]], [[WartsAndAll he still admires his confidence for giving people like him hope]].

** Adrien/Chat Noir also crosses over into villainous territory. It's bad enough when he deliberately [[BetrayalByInaction sits on the sidelines]] while Ladybug fights alone, hoping that [[CavalryRefusal refusing to help]] will force her to admit how much she needs him and agree to [[RelationshipUpgrade start dating him]]. But his behavior only degrades further when he [[NeverMyFault blames Vexxin]] for joining the team and 'throwing off their balance', reaching the point where he sees her outnumbered three-to-one by akuma and decides to perch in a tree and watch, hissing that she ''deserves'' to be brutalized and killed. He also blames Marinette and Cole for standing up to Lila, insisting that they've only got themselves to blame for how she's turned most of their classmates against them.

* Interestingly, in ''Fanfic/PurpleDays'', Joff, through brutal CharacterDevelopment and a relentless GroundhogDayLoop, shapes up into a decent person, and later, into a wonderful king. ''However'', this has the side effect of dooming another person - Daenerys Targaryen. [[ForWantOfANail Since Joff now respects Ser Barristan]], he sees no problem in keeping the faithful knight by his side; without Ser Barristan to journey to Essos and save Daenerys from the manticore's attack, the poison rots her arm and twists her mind, and by the time she makes it to Westeros, she's turned into the second coming of her father, with the added threat of her dragons. While Joff would have liked to save her along with everyone else, the sad truth is that not only he can't politically afford to, he simply hasn't interacted with her enough across the loops to get a decent enough feel of what makes her tick to convince her to go along with his carefuly-constructed plans. Feeling all the while like a hypocrite, and lamenting the circumstances that have turned her into a villain in his tale, Joff reluctantly signs on an assassination mission against her.
