* In '' VideoGame/GodoOfWarAscension'', [[Myth/GreekMythology Orkos]]. He looks like a LivingShadow and in fact [[CastingAShadow has powers related to that]], but he is probably among the most decent and kind characters in the whole franchise.

* The [[HotWitch Umbra Witches]] from the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series are a clan of female-only dark magic users who get their powers by literally [[DealWithTheDevil making contracts with demons]] and make it a habit of hunting down and killing angels, the titular character in particular being quite sexually provocative and snarky. However, they are protectors of humanity, and [[OurAngelsAreDifferent the angels]] are actually [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] who want to wipe out humanity. Infernal Demons, on the other hand, come in both the relatively decent and DarkIsEvil varieties, especially come ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}''.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' gives us Leliana, who had become so DarkerAndEdgier that she is feared throughout Thedas. Indeed The Inquisitor themselves can suggest that disagreeing with her methods would see them dead. As cold as she can be, she's far from evil: just utterly devoted to stopping the threat and protecting her friends which cause her brutal methods to be scary.

* Demons in ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''Videogame/MakaiKingdom''. Though most would [[NobleDemon likely insist that they are, in fact, totally evil]], the only affect demonhood would appear to really have on one's conscience (as [[spoiler: Flonne]] and others turned into demons would probably tell you) is a natural predisposition to be a smartass. And slightly dimwitted: [[spoiler:Adell, who never actually figures out he's really a full-blooded demon himself]] doesn't even manage that much 'evil', other than a love of battle.
** King Krichevskoy particularly exemplifies this. Far from being a CardCarryingVillain, all evidence points to him being a very nice if rather eccentric demon who would even treat complete strangers with kindness. He was even shamelessly married to a complete LoveFreak. All this from the man who just happened to be ''the king of The Netherworld.''
** Of course, there are a few demons who are genuinely evil even though the majority of their kind lean more towards chaos, so much so that [[EvenEvilHasStandards most of the other demons find them repulsive]]. [[spoiler:Demon Overlord Seedle was a "hero" who tried to ''rape'' the woman who would become protagonist Zetta's LoveInterest and became Overlord of the Netherworld just to get revenge for her fighting back. Fake Zenon was a general asshole who ruled Veldime with an iron fist, perpetuated a curse to drain away the residents' memories and conscience in exchange for his own power, and captured the amnesiac reincarnation of the real Overlord Zenon as a trophy before ''burning the people raising her into the ashes of history''.]]
** Driving the point of this home is a sequence in the first game. The angel Vulcanus sneaked down to the netherworld out of rage that Flonne had be sent to deal with the situation there instead of himself. He steals a pendant that Flonne (or any trainee angel) needs in order to survive down there. As he's escaping the Netherworld, the pendant starts to blaze into heat in his hand, causing him to drop it, for the NobleDemon [[strike:Veyers]] Mid-Boss ([[spoiler:who turns out to be a reincarnation of Laharl's dad, mentioned above]]), to find and pick up. Before the last battle of the chapter, the main characters find Mid-Boss in possession of the pendant, and Flonne warns him that it will burn the hands of anyone with an evil soul. Not only does its failing to do so in Mid-Boss' hands display this trope, [[LightIsNotGood But what does it say about Vulcanus back up there?]]
** And then there's Valvatorez, a vampire Tyrant with a very VillainousFashionSense (HighCollarOfDoom, RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver, CreepyCoolCrosses, OminousOperaCape, etc.) and titles such as Blood-soaked Valvatorez of Absolute Evil and the Bloodthirsty King of Fear... who prides himself in [[IGaveMyWord keeping even the most inconsequential promise]], [[RousingSpeech gives dramatic speeches]] on the [[PowerOfFriendship power of camaraderie]] (and/or [[TrademarkFavoriteFood sardines]]), and generally comes off as a [[LargeHam hammy]], [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} slightly spacey]] NiceGuy. This is even more so with his original Tyrant form which, in addition to all of the above (Minus the sardines), has an incredibly [[EvilSoundsDeep deep and intimidating voice]], especially in Japanese.
** Marona, the protagonist of ''PhantomBrave'', is technically a mercenary necromancer who binds and commands the spirits of the dead. She is a thirteen-year old girl who just wants to be happy and get along with people, is kind to even her enemies, and arguably the nicest person in ''any'' Nippon Ichi game. The Phantoms themselves are ghostly spirits, but they're overall pretty decent people. You also cross paths with Fox, Puppeteer of the Dead, a true necromancer... who is just a regular merc and not a particularly bad person either. [[spoiler:He aids Marona during the final struggle, along with all the other Ravens.]]

* Demons in ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''Videogame/MakaiKingdom''. Though most would [[NobleDemon likely ''Videogame/MakaiKingdom'' frequently insist that they are, in fact, totally evil]], the only affect demonhood would appear are definitely evil, but are more often lazy than malicious and tend to be smartasses rather than cruel. The 'evil' thing is really have on one's conscience (as [[spoiler: Flonne]] and others turned into demons would probably tell you) is just a natural predisposition to be a smartass. And slightly dimwitted: [[spoiler:Adell, who never actually figures out he's really a full-blooded demon himself]] doesn't even manage cultural affectation that much 'evil', other than a love of battle.
** King Krichevskoy particularly exemplifies this. Far
they've picked up over the ages because, as ''Videogame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten'' explains, while it ''is'' their job to spread fear among humans, this is largely A. for the humans own benefit to keep them from being a CardCarryingVillain, all evidence points too self destructive and B. because both they and angels need humans to him being a very nice if rather eccentric demon who would even treat complete strangers with kindness. He was even shamelessly married fear or worship them respectively. Everyone needs to a complete LoveFreak. All this from play their part in the man who just happened to be ''the king of The Netherworld.''
** Of course, there are a few
system or the whole system falls apart. More than evil, if demons who are genuinely evil even though the majority of their kind lean more towards chaos, so much so that [[EvenEvilHasStandards most of had a character alignment it would be chaos with angels on the other side representing order, though they often believe themselves to be just as holy and good as demons find them repulsive]].

** Pure-hearted Mickey himself, while strongly associated with the Light, uses the Keyblade from the Realm of Darkness, largely because they needed a Keyblade of Darkness as well as one of Light to lock the Door to Kingdom Hearts.

* Yuri from ''ShadowHearts'' is a "Dark"-elemental character, and the main character- a heroic main character, even. He can transform into various demons, but he uses that power to fight against the really nasty bastards, and himself suffers absolutely no evil attitudes other than being a bit of a dumbass and a slight pervert. There's also Shania, in the third game, who is not only the main heroine and a ProudWarriorRaceGuy... er, ''girl'', but very much a Darkness element character.
