* Wrestling/PatPatterson: A face-leaning official and commentator in the United States and most of Canada ... except in the WWF's French-Canadian markets (primarily, Montreal), where he was a full-fledged heel who teamed with the New Dream Team (fellow French-Canadian Dino Bravo and Washington native Greg "the Hammer" Valentine) to feud with Wrestling/BrutusBeefcake and the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers.

* Wrestling/KurtAngle is also notorious for turning about once a year. The problem with him is that he is most effective playing a heel, but his immense wrestling talent, the gold medal, and all around [=Badass=] qualities sometimes result in Face reactions even when playing a heel, thus resulting in the bookers [[HeelFaceTurn turning him face]]. Then he does his [[AllAmericanFace bland face routine]] until his crowd reactions wane, and [[FaceHeelTurn then he turns heel again]]. This effect was {{lampshaded}} during an interview [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ydZDLLtp8Y where he denounced "the black people" and Jesus to prove that he would still get cheered]] (he was right).

* ''Fanfic/ProdigalSon'': Astrid's opinion of her tribe comes across as this point.
--> Gods above… more than anything else, Astrid just craved stability. Protect village during a dragon raid? Reputation up. Help Stoick conduct a raid on the nest? Reputation down. Get shipwrecked and miraculously find one's way home? Reputation up. Get accused of theft? Reputation down. Reason for theft: long lost love? Reputation up, and the chief's favor. Try for another attempt at the nest? Reputation down. ''Actually make it?'' Reputation up. Can't fight the monster? Reputation down. Found someone who could? Reputation up… until everyone realizes that his method is unorthodox… then down again.

* ''Script/C0DA'', written by former ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series writer/designer Creator/MichaelKirkbride, takes place in the far distant future of ''TES'' universe. Several major characters from the series make appearances, including Almalexia. After originally being a "face" for most of the series' backstory, she underwent a FaceHeelTurn in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''[='s=] ''Tribunal'' expansion, where she served as the unstable BigBad. In ''[=C0DA=]'', she is not only BackFromTheDead, but she is once again on the "face" side of things - working for the "Pseudo=6th-House", a super team of god-powered heroes protecting the reality of the work from outside threats.

* Loki seems to have this problem as of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' .

The constant side-switching appears to be due to the fact that the character himself is very confused, in this case.

In Season 3, they both settle down into, respectively, ByronicHero and AntiHero roles.

%%* Salim from ''Film/SlumdogMillionaire''* [[AlphaBitch Sharpay Evans]] in ''Film/HighSchoolMusical''. She seemed to have turned "good" at the end of the first film, but in the second she is even worse than before. In the third, she is "in it to win it". While she was scheming some more in her spinoff, she turned out to have been played herself.
