* Not all the monsters ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' came face-to-face with are AlwaysChaoticEvil. Just ask his friend Charlie the big, scary-looking but very friendly giant rat, Carmen the sea monster, who just wants everyone to hear her break out in song (as in "Carmen," of course), Bigfoot, the shadow who used to be a actor, William the Dragon and the enormous, vulture-like monster Mama Bird, who's just protecting her hatchlings for good reason.

Possibly the most tragic example is the Magic Tree from Nowhere; it's a benevolent entity (despite being pretty creepy) with Eustace being the true antagonist of the story, [[GreenEyedMonster chopping the poor tree down out of jealousy.]]

** Speaking of ''Scooby Doo'', how about ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool''? The girls of the eponymous school are all quite nice and friendly, and even their father (including the likes of The {{Mummy}}, Dracula, and The WolfMan) are nice, if frighteningly protective of their daughters. The only really evil monsters to appear in the entire thing are Revolta and her minions.

* The Witch from the 1978 Halloween Special "Witch's Night Out" is a textbook case of this trope. She's not Malicious and uses her magic to transform anyone into anything they wanted for Halloween and will change them back once the day is over... Oh and she throws a party at her mansion to boot!

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'', Castle Grayskull is just about the creepiest looking piece of architecture any villain could ever hope to design. Yet the place is always presented unambiguously as a source of power for ''good.'' Presumably, its appearance isn't really supposed to look evil... Just BadAss.

* The ''{{Chaotic}}'' tv series features the Underworlders tribe of Creatures, who seriously play up the "Dark Beasts of the Netherworld" type for all it's worth, is host to some of the show's nastier monster badguys, like Lord Van Bloot, and it's leader, Chaor, is constantly organizing attacks against the Overworlder tribe. Yet, Chaor has been displayed honorable tendancies, and the Underworlder, H'earring, is practically TeamPet to Tom, Kaz, Peyton and Sarah. Furthermore, the Underworlders claim that the Overworlders were responsible for starting the war over the Cothica.

*** Asami Sato from the same series is more of a visual example, wearing a good deal of [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver black and red]] - the same color scheme as BiggerBad [[SatanicArchetype Vaatu]], no less - but she's firmly on the heroes' side. (Interestingly, Asami ''was'' concieved as a SixthRangerTraitor. The writers, however, decided they liked her character too much to waste it.)

** Played with with the Dark spirits from the second season of Korra. On the one hand, they're on a rampage and being antagonistic, but as Unalaq explains, they are not inherently malevolent - no spirit is, according to him -, and are in fact reacting to people's disregard of nature, like Hei Bai in the previous series. [[spoiler: Though the fact that they're being manipulated by [[BiggerBad Vaatu]], [[EldritchABomination THE dark spirit]], muffles this quite a bit. Though he himself honours his deal with Unalaq with no fuss, so who knows.]]

* Several aliens in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' and its sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', some of which Ben himself transforms into thanks to the Omnitrix. Most notable examples include Ghostfreak and Big Chill, who are both ghost-like aliens (though Ghostfreak ''did'' [[EnemyWithout turned evil after escaping from the Omnitrix]]) and the forms Ben got from Ghostfreak's minions ([[{{Mummy}} Benmummy/Snare-oh]], Benwolf/Blitzwolfer and [[FrankensteinSMonster Benvicktor/Frankenstrike]]), who are all horror-themed alien.

* The creepy-looking, green-skinned ghoul ''WesternAnimation/Doug'' and his BFF Skeeter once encountered......[[spoiler: turns out to be not so scary after all, even helping them scare Roger Klotz for messing with Doug himself. Roger Klotz.]]
* Z from ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' (an ''WesternAnimation/Rugrats'') looks like the kind of badbutt punk you'd better steer clear of and run away from. He's also into raising money for inner city schools as much as everyone else and pretty much proof that appearances can be deceiving......even in Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, Phil, Lil and Kimi's world.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' - The aliens Jenny Wakeman (a.k.a. XJ9) encounters in the episode "Stage Fright." Sure, they look like atypical 1950s alien invaders, which is why Jenny Wakeman, while in drama class, mistakes them for bad guys BECAUSE they yelled out "Alien invasion!", but as it turns out, they're actually good guys, warning everyone about the real invaders...........a bunch of beautiful-looking aliens.
* ''WesternAnimation/[[Recess]]'' had Butch, who tells the main characters scary stories and looks like a [[RebelliousSpirit rebel]], but is as nice as almost any other kid in the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/[[Toonami]]'' has TOM who is a dark blue robot, but is kind to his viewers.

* ''WesternAnimation/MinaAndTheCount'' - Count Vlad is a vampire, wears black and has blue skin. He is also turned into [[OneOfTheKids]] now, courtesy of [[NiceGirl Mina]].
* ''WesternAnimation/[[Filmore]]'''s sidekick Ingrid Third wears black and is a Safety Patroler.
* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' - Eduardo is a imaginary friend who looks like a scary-looking [[ALoadOfBull minotaur]] with purple fur and grey pants with a belt with a skull on it. He's really a [[Gentle Giant]] who's [[Adorkable]] in his own way.

* ''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/W.I.T.C.H'' - Napoleon is a black cat who's one of Earth's protectors.

* ''WesternAnimation/BackAtTheBarnyard'' once had a {{Halloween Episode}} with a guy who looks like the kind of {{Maleviolent Masked Men masked villain}} who'd hurt people for a living......[[spoiler: until the barnyard residents discover that he's actually a nice individual and despises horror movies.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Island'' (and the following seasons) has Gwen. She's a snarky, cynical girl who dresses entirely in black and green, and is not afraid to point out when the other contestants are acting stupid. But as the episodes go on, it becomes apparent that she's one of the nicest characters on the show- she just takes a while to [[SugarAndIcePersonality warm up, that's all.]]
