* ''WesterAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'' - The Elmo St. Peter's parts appliances are broken, tinkered and messed up from whatever bad happened in their life and even have a dark sense of humor (which is misery, which comedians use in [[RealLife]] for their routines). They're also they-who-help-the-appliances-scare-Elmo-to-save-Radio.

In ''WesternAnimation/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue'', Prudence wears black/gray clothing but in spite of the snubby aspect of her personality, at least her heart's in the right place.
The [[CleverCrows]] from ''Anime/TheCatReturns.''
''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle''- Zigzagged with Howl's transformations, [[DarkIsEvil even though his other self's very dangerous]].
Rain, eMMM, -- [[spoiler: the Pasteur and The Cult of the Strange]] -- from ''WesternAnimation/WeAreTheStrange.''
''WesternAnimation/HortonHearsAWho'' - JoJo has a monochrome color scheme and he's the [[Tritagonist]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'': Toothless the dragon is completely black, uses the cover of night to his advantage, his breed is considered the scariest and most dangerous dragon of all, and is on two different occasions referred to as something unholy. The dragon hand-guide describes his breed as an "unholy offspring of lightning and death itself" and Hiccup's father calls him "Devil" in one scene. However, he's also one of the main characters, a "good guy," and [[UglyCute freakin' adorable]].

** ''WesternAnimation/Ratatoullie'' - Anton Ego looks like he could be a potential villain, but as it turns out, he's just a very harsh critic trying to find a restaurant worth remembering for.
** In ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'', [[TheAllegedCar Lemons]] are evil, but Otis, the beaten-up car seen in the BookEnds, is friendly.

* The Bog King from ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' is a complicated example. He certainly looks evil by being a scowling insect humanoid. While he does kidnap and threaten an innocent Fairy princess, he's doing it to recover a LovePotion which he wants to destroy both because he hates love and that he knows it's incredible dangerous. [[spoiler: Once he and [[TheHero Marianne]] fall in love upon realizing that they are NotSoDifferent, he's able to show a more tender side. By the time he performs a HeroicSacrifice, its obvious that despite his monstrous appearance he'a good man. ]]

* The 1996 live-action/stop-motion adaptation of ''Creator/Roald Dahl''s ''WesternAnimation/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'' has Miss Spider. Sure, she's solitary and mysterious unlike the other bugs (some of them live in fear of her), but she's good-hearted and hospitable to James -- spoiler alert -- because he saved her life.

* ''WesternAnimation/BartokTheMagnificent'' (an ''WesternAnimation/Antastasia'' spin-off) - Baba Yaga is a [[Gonk gruesome-looking]] witch who lives in a dingy old house with chicken legs, but she isn't evil; just an [[HeroWithBadPublicity HeroineWithBadPublicity}} who's antisocial.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AGoofy Movie AnExtremelyGoofyMovie'', Beret Girl wears all black but cares for PJ and Max Goof. [[JerkJock Bradley]] [[FauxAffablyEvil Uppercrust]].....not so much.
* ''WesternAnimation/Shrek'', a ogre who lives in a [[BubbleglompSwamp swamp]] and [[ThePigPen seems to have little regard for hygene]], but he is also a [[GentleGiant]] who cares for friends and family. Same goes for the supposed Big Bad Wolf and Puss In Boots, post-[[HeelFaceTurn]], whose cape and boots are as black as pitch, but he is [[TheSmartGuy]] of Shrek's pals.

* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' - Gru, post-[[HeelFaceTurn]], wears dark as night clothing, but while he used to be a supervillain, he's become a good father and a Anti-Villain League agent; Edith, [[BlondeBrunetteRedhead the blonde of the girls]] sports a black catsuit in the sequel. The Minions also count.
* ''WesternAnimation/Megamind'', post-[[HeelFaceTurn]], as he STILL has his black mamba and [[YouGottaHaveBlueSkin blue skin]]. Also, Minion's a angler-in-a-fish-bowl-attached-to-a-mechanical-gorilla's-body. Suffice to say, he's a [[NiceGuy]].

* Frank the rabbit from ''Film/DonnieDarko'' certainly looks scary, and some of the things he gets Donnie to do seem downright sinister at first. However, [[spoiler: he turns out to have been well-intentioned, and everything he told Donnie to do was for the greater good]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/HotelTranslyvania'', the two main characters wear black and are vampires (at least Dracula is), but they're the good guys. Same goes for the monsters.

* ''WesternAnimation/Fire&Ice" - Just because Darkwolf has a [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast terrifying name]] and a darkness motif does not mean he's not good guy material.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' V: TheMysteriousIsland, Chomper's parents are carnivores (albeit sentient, reasonable ones).

** In the short film Legend of the BoneKnapper Dragon, the titular dragon has a body made of bones, but is trying to get the key to its roar ([[spoiler: Gobbler's belt buckle]]) back.
** Also, [[spoiler: the Whispering Death species, [[HeelFaceTurn eventually]].]]
