Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'':
** Pottsfield is populated by creepy-looking villagers in pumpkin costumes [[spoiler:who are actually skeletons]]. One of them states that "people don't usually just pass through Pottsfield", and the episode initially sets us up to believe that the village has some kind of totalitarian state or black magic that forcibly prevents people from wanting to leave, but it's really just a genuinely fun place where people don't usually want to leave quickly. Their leader, Enoch, is a little strict, but [[spoiler:ultimately proves to be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who is perfectly willing to let Greg and Wirt go home once they've been fairly punished for destroying other people's property]].
** The Beast has a lot of DarkIsEvil traits, but his [[TheDragon Dragon]] [[spoiler:Adelaide]] is melted by the night sky, and he himself is [[spoiler:ultimately killed by blowing out his lantern, leaving the screen completely black]].
** [[spoiler:Auntie Whispers]] looks like an evil hag, but is actually a very kind woman who was telling the truth about [[spoiler:protecting Lorna from "the evil spirit"]].

** Twilight Sparkle, having mostly dark colors of lavender and purple, in addition to a name that refers to a time period of night. She is unquestionably TheHero of the series.

** Twilight Sparkle herself qualifies, having mostly dark colors of lavender and purple, in addition to a name that refers to a time period of night, yet being undeniably on the side of good... even during her [[SanitySlippage less than stable times]].

** Irwin, too, as is expected for the {{Adorkable}} NonActionGuy [[HybridMonster offspring]] of [[{{Dhampyr}} Dracula's son]] and a {{Mummy}}. More noticeable in ''Underfist'', where he gain superpowers and a costume that could best be described as {{Goth}} meets Ancient Egypt and unlike previous episodes he acts heroically and decently.

** In the 2002 animated series episode "King Randor", Adam and Man-At-Arms travel to the underground land of Subternia to negotiate between two races, one of which is a fearsome-looking tribe of bat people that a freaked Adam nearly pulls his sword on before Duncan stops him. Despite their appearance they're very friendly towards the visitors and Randor is greeted warmly by their king Lord Dactus. There's a funny moment of NotSoDifferent when Adam expresses disbelief that Dactus is really their king and Dactus gently calls him on it.

** See the RealLife page for more, but in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'', Wicca is portrayed as good and its even gone into detail as to the fact they're very different from witches. [[spoiler: Of course the 'Wiccan' they thought they were clearing the name of was actually an evil witch, but Wiccans were the ones who imprisoned her inside her own spell book and only a Wiccan could imprison her again.]] The Hex Girls (introduced in this movie) also play this trope; they dress like vampires for their act, but are actually three really nice girls and love the environment. They even help the Gang everytime they meet, and [[spoiler: their leader is the one to banish Sarah the witch back into her prison]].

* - Grim to an extent, TheGrimReaper. He may be death personified, but he enjoys watching television and is always (although reluctantly) willing to use his supernatural abilities to save others. Played with, since he does show often a sociopathic disregard for other people's lives and wellfare and in a few episodes he does act outright evil. But most of the time he is too passive and affable to completely subvert it.
** It's no wonder if Grim seems like a nice (or at least likable) fellow compared to [[EnfantTerrible the company]] he is forced to keep.

* The Gaoul from ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' fit this trope nicely... creepy, red-and-black batlike aliens that really turn out to be a helpful mix of GiantFlyer and RedShirt.



* The WesternAnimation/MenInBlack all work on the side of good (except for Alpha, but he left a long time ago).

** There's also the owl and Nicodemus from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'', both of which are old looking and very scary characters that are on the good side.
*** The tanner in "The Small One." He's rough and abrupt, but when the boy asks if he'll take good care of his donkey, he looks sad and very gently tells him, "I only want his hide, son. I'm the tanner." Small One and the boy freak out anyway.

* Sid Philip's mutilated toys in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', despite being some of the creepiest things Pixar has ever rendered, are all pretty nice guys and have a knack for fixing things.
** The toy version of Emperor Zurg (Buzz Lightyear's archnemesis) in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' would probably count. The real reason why he appears evil is because he thinks he's evil, believing that he is the ''real'' Zurg, just like how Buzz himself thinks that he is the ''real'' Buzz. The toy Zurg is actually very friendly.
* If not AffablyEvil, [[OurGryphonsAreDifferent the Griffin]] from ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'' could arguably count. He's pretty much just the bad guy's pet, who ends up as being quite sympathetic for his ButtMonkey status, as the movie pretty much only shows him suffer in a way or another. The worst thing he did was his attempt to get revenge on the good guy's falcon ([[spoiler:and getting burned by Devon and Cornwall for that]]), but then again [[SmallAnnoyingCreature he was asking for it]].
* Disney's ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' movie uses this along with LightIsNotGood with symbolism with the lighting. Deep shadows represent being hidden and well protected, while sunny areas resemble being vulnerable and out in the open.



* Disney plays with its portrayal of villains in ''Disney/TheLionKing 2: Simba's Pride''. Kovu and the other Outlands lions are drawn exactly like Scar (lean build, dark coloring, pointed facial features), but only Zira is actually evil. Especially true for Kovu, who looks like a more muscular version of Scar, and even gets a similar scar after a while



* ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' - [[OurVampiresAreDifferent The Talent Suckers]] wear gothic clothing, but they aren't out looking for blood, they were looking for ''talent''.
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' - [[spoiler: Klofange looks intimidating, that with being a giant compared to the Xiaolin Warriors, his WildHair and appearance, but he's only trying to stop a evil mermaid from [[TakeOverTheWorld Taking Over The World]].]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' - Napoleon is a black cat who's one of Earth's protectors.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollz}}'' - [[TheBigGuy Onyx]] wears gothic clothing and has [[NightmareFetishist morbid interests]], but she's one of the main heroines.
