I've been wandering if it's possible. (Forgive my wording I don't really know how to word this today. x_x') But is it possible to like create an event to battle other actors like in a scene where an actor turns into an enemy or in a scene where the actor starts as an enemy? And also, does it require a custom battler sprite if it's possible or are their alternative methods?

As in... an enemy that turns into an actor or vice-versa? Or they simply just leave or join the battle?
If you want the enemy to turn into an actor, in the event section of the troops tab, force the escape action upon the enemy, and then use the change party members command to add an actor. If you want an actor to turn into an enemy, again, use the change party members command and then use the enemy appear command.

There are a couple of animated battler plugins as well as sideview enemies plug-ins, just take a look at the master script list.

With something like this, you could have an SV actor, like one of your main characters in your battle system, and use it an enemy.

If you wanted to have the actor change sides in the middle of the battle or at the start of the battle, you will need to do some eventing.

From what I've learned, almost anything is possible if you put your mind too it.

I'm trying to make a fight where your enemy is one of the listed actors in the database as an event of sorts like you have to confront one of the NPCs to make he/she your ally and all. Like an example would be like:
Party runs into a scene but is ambushed by an NPC that seems friendly at first but turns into an enemy to test the party by fighting them. I've been trying this numerous times but I ended up confused even with this new master script list.

The old way I did it in old RPG Makers was to convert their actor battlers into enemies but in MV, it seems it isn't that simple since there is no "battler" to convert from unless you make some sort of art. So I was wondering if there are alternatives since I'm still a novice in terms of learning to use MV even though I had MV for a long time.

Yeah, so, there would have to be both an actor and an enemy with the same name. If you want a normal sprite battler, you'll have to get an animated enemies plugin, but otherwise, if you want just a regular sideview battler, you can either look in a workshop, request one, or just use the default that looks the most like your character. As far as an event that looks friendly but battles against you, you want them to turn into an enemy before the battle starts? If so, just make them join your party and then afterwards, initiate the battle sequence with the enemy version of that character, which you'll set up before hand, in whichever way you so choose.

I really wanna find this method. Turn a party as an enemy to fight in a battle is.....difficult to me except I have to create a main character in enemy list. Create an enemy of the certain character, add skills, parameter and buffs. Creating event is a best idea where we can see what happen between friends or rivals against each other.

I made battles where Big brother vs lil sis', then lil sis vs big brother.

big bro vs lil sis : 3:40
lil sis vs big bro : 8:00
