* Porunga, one of the wish-granting dragons from ''Main/DragonBallZ'', is a demonic, frightening-looking beast, but he's far [[GentleGiant nicer than even most regular dragons.]] When the heroes wished for everyone on Earth to be resurrected after Buu killed them, he went the extra mile [[BenevolentGenie and rebuilt all their cities and buildings free of charge.]] (He has been known to be a little sarcastic at times, however. When faced with someone who can't decide what to wish for, he once said, "wish for nothing three times so I can go". Most dragons would have threatened a mortal in that situation.)

** Rebellion gives us Homura who becomes a demon in the end compelte with an all black outfit, crow wings, and mooks but despite calling herself evil, a demon, and the devil she has only displayed affably evil or even anti-villain traits. She created a world in which all her friends are alive and happy and gave the middle finger to the series' previous big bad Kyubey. The creators themselves list Homura's action as being in the Grey vs.Grey morality zone.

* The demons in ''{{Shuffle}}'' are only demons in name. They're pretty much amiable people with [[UnusualEars long elven ears]]. Nerine and her father Forbessi exemplifies this well enough, these demons seems to be less rambunctious than the Gods' side (which consists a GenkiGirl and a BumblingDad). * ''[[Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi]]'' has "Dou"-type martial arts, which are powered by rage and aggression (in contrast to "Sei"-type, which are more about skill and precision). It is stated that many practitioners of Dou martial arts are most likely to walk the path of destruction. However, Dou-type fighting in itself isn't regarded as evil, and Dou users who are gentle by nature (including two of Kenichi's masters and his love interest) don't usually fall to that path.

* The manga version of ''ChronoCrusade'' toys with this. Chrono is always known as a NobleDemon, and he's actually a very sweet person with good intentions, despite being a demon, [[spoiler:whose kin are actually a race of space aliens]]. The rest of the demons seem very evil at first, but Aion is actually a WellIntentionedExtremist that has simply come to believe the ''only'' way to "fix" the world [[spoiler:is to destroy it]]. He's actually a very nice guy...besides the whole evil plan thing. In fact, all the Sinners have far too complicated motivations to be called "evil". And even the rest of the demons are [[spoiler:simply space aliens left without a home and lead astray because of truths hidden from them by leaders long dead.]] The anime version, however, plays most demons as far less complex.

* Jinbe from ''Manga/OnePiece'', who resembles an oni (traditional Japanese ogre) with a whale shark motif, but is far from a bad guy.

*** In general, it's clear that Virus-attribute Digimon aren't necessarily evil. Many are simply disgusting, predatory, or even just mischievous.

*** In general, it's clear that Virus-attribute Digimon aren't necessarily evil. Many are simply disgusting, predatory, or even just mischievous. This can be seen in Ogremon, who proves to be an ally of the heroes, but decides to part ways on the grounds that hanging out with a bunch of Data and Vaccine types would be bad for his health.

* Hayate Yagami of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. The Queen of the Night Sky and mistress of the Book of Darkness, she has six black wings, a mostly black motif, and her signature spell is a SphereOfDestruction made of pure darkness called Diabolic Emission. She is also the boss of the heroes and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. ** Chrono Harlaown wears black armor (complete with SpikesOfVillainy). He's one of the good guys (and Hayate's commanding officer). (In ''LyricalToyBox'', precursor of the ''Nanoha'' series, he's the antagonist.)
