**In several versions of the myth, including a few hyms, Hades also apologizes for having kidnapped her and hopes that Persephone can forgive him for that. Unlike his little brother Zeus, Hades actually feels bad about his more questionable actions.

* Many versions of Hades and Persephone's story. In particular, there's the fact that Hades was probably the only Olympian who has never, ''ever'' cheated on his wife; the one time he came close to it, it was because ''the girl'' was trying to seduce ''him!'' [[ClingyJealousGirl And then Persephone came...]]
** A few versions of the myth, had it that Hades actually went to Zeus and ask him for permission to marry Persephone. So Hades actually went through genuine legal means to marry her, as oppose to the standard "I am a god so I can just rape you" that most Jerkass gods do.

* Psyche, after enduring all manner of trials (while pregnant) to gain back her husband, Eros, not only wins over Aphrodite's tasks, but is taken to Olympus to live with Cupid forever, and their daughter is named Delight. Even more so, Zeus... y'know, ''frickin' Zeus'', actually get involved in doing this by approving the immortality of Psyche and then personally tells Aphrodite to cut this whole crap at once on the request of Eros.

** Also, along the way home from Medusa-hunting, he saw Andromeda being bound to a rock and nearly killed by Poseidon's sea monster. He just saves her not because he wants to bang that hottie, but because it's the right thing to do, even if he has to delay the Medusa head delivery. It's no wonder they become one of the rarest examples of HappilyMarried within the mythology.

* While far from perfect, Perseus was amng the closest to a NiceGuy among the usually {{pride}}ful heroes and semi-gods. He went "Medusa hunting" not for glory or wealth, but to save [[MommasBoy his beloved mother Danae]] from her StalkerWithACrush who ''happened'' to be the king of the island they lived in. And when he punished said stalker via petrifying him as well as his court, instead of taking the throne for himself, he gave it to the fisherman who helped him and his mom -- who happened to be the rightful king, dethroned by his brother aka the evil king.
