I was looking at the details for a trip I'm making later in the month, and noticed that from Euston, to get to King's Cross you can take either the Victoria Line "Northbound" or the Northern Line "Southbound".

Is there anywhere else on the underground network that is similar to this in that a destination can be reached by travelling in opposite 'directions'?

Looking at direct trains only!

Edgware Road to Mansion House, direct trains clockwise or anticlockwise, both taking around 26 minutes.

Of course one squeezed for time would take the Bakerloo to Embankment and change, and save about 10 minutes.

there's no other situations that are quite like the Euston-Kings Cross example

Highbury & Islington - Clapham Junction and vice versa on the Overground.
Although these are not advertised as x-bound services, but to... and via...

Changed in December that the services to clapham via Canada Water starts at Dalston Junction rather than at Highbury & Islington

Technically isn't it possible to do this anywhere on the Piccadilly line because of the Terminal 4 loop.

Technically Terminal 4 is the terminus.
