* In ''WesternAnimation/MuneTheGuardianOfTheMoon,'' the People of Night are as respected as the People of the Day, and being Guardian of the Moon is as important a job as being the Guardian of the Sun.

** While not necessarily "good", Xibalba [[EverybodyHatesHades isn't really all that bad either]]. His body is made of black tar, his physiology resembling that of a cross between a skeleton and a [[FallenAngel fallen angel]], his colors primarily [[EvilWearsBlack black]] and [[SicklyGreenGlow green]] with [[RedEyesTakeWarning little red skulls for pupils]]. He rules over the [[CrapsackWorld Land of the Forgotten]], an ash-filled wasteland where the forgotten dead stand around doing nothing but be miserable before crumbling to dust. He cheats in a bet with La Muerte (who, by the way, is also his estranged wife) so that he could rule the Land of the Remembered instead. He cheats, he lies, has little faith in humanity... but again, he's not ''all'' bad. When Manolo wins his challenge, Xibalba begrudgingly admits his respect for him and gives him back his life like he waggered, and even cheers him on in the battle of San Angel against Chakal. The whole time, Xibalba is shown to still love his wife La Muerte, even when she was still angry will him, literally melting by her touch, and by the end [[LoveRedeems he apologizes to her for his transgressions'']], earning back her trust [[TheBigDamnKiss as they kiss, letting loose fireworks]].

** His version of ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' has [[CheshireCatGrin Chessur]], an unbelievably unsettling version of the Cheshire Cat, although he is among the good guys. To a lesser extent, the Mad Hatter and the UglyCute bear/hyena/reptile like Bandersnatch (originally a bad guy, then changing sides); [[spoiler:in the end, the Red Queen's minions also stop being in her side. Yes, that includes the creepy card soldiers]].

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' has {{Badass}} Mace Windu. His fighting style, Vaapad, focuses on channeling his inner rage and bloodlust into strength and speed. He is able to go berserk on bad guys without losing control and falling to TheDarkSide.

** This is a case of AdaptationalHeroism since in the original comics J was anything but a good guy and the Men in Black were [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]] with K being forced into service.

* The citizens of Halloween Town from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', are textbook examples. They even say as much in the opening song (see the quotes page). Even though they're all skeletons, Frankenstein-esque monsters, ghosts, vampires, a MadScientist, etc., for the most part they're just fun guys who love a good Halloween. The only one who's really evil is Oogie Boogie - and he isn't exactly popular with the others.
** However, they did kidnap SantaClaus, and [[TerribleTrio Lock, Shock and Barrel]] memorably sang a song about different ways to kill him. Of course, said children work for Oogie Boogie, and Jack hadn't meant for Santa to come to any harm...
** The children also live in a land of zombies, vampires, living skeletons, and a reanimating MadScientist, so ''[[FridgeBrilliance being dead doesn't mean ceasing to exist for them]]'', obviously.
** Oogie Boogie is actually from a completely different (and very dead) holiday, so he's not really from Halloween Town anyway, as one of the video games reveals.
** This is pointed out in ''KingdomHearts'', when Sora, Donald, and Goofy wonder why Jack would help them stop the Heartless. Jack explains that while the people of Halloween Town love scaring people, they don't want anyone to actually be hurt, like the Heartless do.
** Jack actually ''did'' tell Lock, Shock, and Barrel not to send Santa to Oogie. [[{{TooDumbToLive}} To actually]] ''[[{{TooDumbToLive}} trust]]'' [[{{TooDumbToLive}} them to keep their word, however]] . . . . .
----> '''Jack''': And one more thing... ''leave'' that no account Oogie Boogie OUT OF THIS!
* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'' also plays on this trope. The undead are jovial and friendly both to each other and to mortals, while a lot of the mortals themselves are jerks.
** They are also more colorful whereas the mortals appear in what can only be called 'the Tim Burton palette'.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'': The Great Owl, who is neutral. Also, Nicodemus; not only is he scary and ugly (the "ugly" being mostly because of how [[UncannyValley disturbingly anthropomorphic he is]]), but also actually quite dark in himself (largely thanks to the fact that the colours in the movie are [[RealIsBrown quite dull and brown]], as was the style in fantastic films of the time).

** As if the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movie hadn't already the eponymous demonic protagonist, the sequel also introduces several magical creatures that, for most part, just want to be left alone. A notable example is [[OurAngelsAreDifferent the Angel of Death]], which is pretty weird and macabre looking, but helps nonetheless.

* The made-for-TV-movie ''WhenGoodGhoulsGoBad'' features this. The eponymous [[OurZombiesAreDifferent ghoul]] may ''look'' scary, but he's what's left of a harmless ([[http://content9.flixster.com/photo/11/39/28/11392851_gal.jpg and actually kind of cute]]) goth kid who just wanted to show off the statue he made of his mentor.
