* A common theme in {{Vathara}}'s works is that she believes "Beware The Good Ones" is a contradiction; if you're good, you ''can't'' be dangerous, and if you're dangerous, you can't be purely good. "Good" people need "grey" people to protect them, because the idealism that builds thriving societies is incompatible with [[IDidWhatIHadToDo the actions necessary]] to protect those societies from harm. Any {{Paragon}} in her works who attempts to do ''both'' has to either accept that darkness as part of themselves or [[TheParagonAlwaysRebels go stark staring mad]].

* Yes, [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Jumba]] has more-or-less retired from the "evil" part of being an EvilGenius, perfectly happy to live of Earth as Lilo's quirky "uncle" with hundreds of his reformed experiments being appreciated. In ''FanFic/{{Aloha}}'', he's still that same character. But as violent and dangerous as the various experiments were before they were [[HeelFaceTurn turned from bad to good]], which the Grand Councilwoman realized after Lilo was kidnapped, Jumba is the one that purposefully ''made'' them in the first place. And when a member of his ohana goes missing, he's perfectly able to go back to being a dangerous EvilGenius if it means helping save Lilo.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Shinji is pretty quiet and meek. However when [[spoiler:Leliel trapped Asuka into its body]], he forced his Eva into a berserker, roaring rage and ''shattered'' and tore to shreds its body.

* ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars'': While he definitely wasn't nice in the start, [[spoiler: Bill Cipher comes to genuinely care about Steven. So any and all attempts to hurt the boy will make him angry.]]
** Steven Universe is a more played straight example, just like his [[Characters/StevenUniverseStevenQuartzUniverse canon counterpart]].
** Wendy Corduroy, usually laidback, kind and calm, doesn't hesitate to threaten Bill in Chapter Eleven. [[spoiler: It falls flat, since he's still stronger, but they even engage in a "glaring contest" afterwards. It doesn't even stop until Steven comes back and drags Bill away]].
** There's also Sadie, who stands up to Bill and [[spoiler: keeps him from messing up the school as badly as he initially wanted]], [[spoiler: Peridot, whose metal powers activate with feelings of frustration]] and Kryptos, who banged his hands on [[spoiler: the bubble keeping him and the remaining Henchmaniacs trapped upon hearing that Pyronica betrayed Bill.]]

*''7teen: Fanfiction Series'': Jonesy's father, Michael. Quite possibly the nicest guy you could imagine, [[BreakTheCutie especially considering all the hell he and his sons faced from when his first marraige ended to when he married his second wife]]. But if you dare insult his kids ''or'' his integrity in any way, you'll regret it faster than you can say "sorry".

* [[LightNovel/FateStayNight Shirou Emiya]] is favorably compared to Buddha in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7798790/1/Promises-of-a-Wandering-Hero Promises of a Wandering Hero]]'', with even the residents of the [[Manga/LoveHina Hinata Inn]] admitting he's a kind, forgiving, and understanding man. He can also defeat even Motoko's older sister Tsuruko and if he's willing to kill, he can take on her entire clan and win.

* ''{{Team 8}}'': Kurenai certainly thinks Hinata might one day snap under her father's mistreatment and abuse and [[TakingYouWithMe kill him and herself]].

* FanFic/FalloutEuropa'': Austin is a pretty amicable guy and fun to be round and talk to. He's also responsible for nearly a dozen on-screen deaths by chapter 5.

** All over the place really. It seems that the best way to survive in Europe is to automatically assume, no matter their mannerisms and level of kindness, that they are packing heat and that they will end your sorry existence if you give them cause.

* Marinette of ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' is known for this in canon, but she gets especially scary in the story ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7088386 Red For Fortune]]'' when she confronts Adrien about a ''Mode'' issue with a fashion spread supposedly inspired by the Lunar New Year, comprised of stereotypical outfits designed by his father, modeled entirely by white people in {{Yellowface}}, ''including Adrien himself''. The fact that Adrien resorts to trite defenses of everyone involved rather than even try to comprehend why she's so upset ends up [[BrokenPedestal destroying the pedestal]] she put him on by the end of the chapter, and then gets her akumatised.

'''Marinette''': Spoken like a truly privileged white man. Your father must be so proud.
'''Adrien''': Donít act like such a martyr, Marinette. It's not like you're some oppressed minority - heck, your skin is even paler than mine.
