* This happens in ''{{Kinnikuman}}''. A LOT. To the point where at least 3 {{Big Bad}}s and 2 Dragons have done. Ironically, two have gone to do {{Face Heel Turn}}s in the sequel series, ''KinnikumanNisei'', which features even MORE {{Heel Face Turn}}s.

* ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' [[DefeatMeansFriendship Befriends many of her enemies]]. To put it in perspective, the only returning good member of the regular cast in the third Season who didn't start out as a villain in one way or another is Nanoha herself (it helps that most of them are [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]]):

* In ''RosarioToVampire'', every girl in Tsukune's Harem, other than Moka (and possibly Yukari, who initially behaved more like a ScrewySquirrel than anything), started out trying to kill, control or abuse him. As did their club president, Gin.

** Several villains experience this as well to varying degrees. Buggy, while still evil, became more caring for his crew after his defeat. Hatchan (one of Arlong's subordinates), Bon Clay, and Mister 3 (of Baroque Works) all showed up again much later to become an ally of the Straw Hats; even the arrogant leader of Baroque Works, Crocodile eventually allies himself to Luffy in his escape from Impel Down, and though dismissing it simply as [[EnemyMine something he's doing because his own convenience]], he ends going out of his way to save Luffy from a certain death in the battle of Marineford. Notably, [[PsychoForHire CP9]] defects from the World Government after their defeat…but in all likelihood, they turned from Heels to [[WildCard Wild Cards]].

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' practically built its cast this way. By the end of the series, most of the heroes are former villains; it's easier to list the characters who didn't try to kill or at least beat Goku up when they met him than otherwise. For that matter, Goku himself had a {{backstory}} heel-face turn, when his inherent Saiyan nature was subverted by a blow to the head. It took Vegeta the longest to fully turn, and he actually turned all the way back to [[FaceHeelTurn heel]] right before it happened.
** To highlight it better, of the core cast of Z fighters from throughout DBZ, Goku himself had been sent to Earth initially to depopulate it as a mindless ape, Yamcha was a bandit who tried to rob Goku when they met, Krillin was TheRival for Master Roshi's attention, Tien and Chaozu were students of the Crane Hermit, a wicked rival to Master Roshi, Piccolo was the son/reincarnation of EvilOverlord King Piccolo out to avenge his father/former self's defeat by Goku, Vegeta came to Earth solely to steal the Dragon Balls and kill anyone who got in his way, Androids 17 and 18 were rebellious punks who caused a BadFuture in Future Trunks' timeline, and Majin Buu was a childlike pink blob monster who didn't even realize that causing death and destruction was bad until Mr. Satan set him straight.

* Sasame in ''{{Pretear}}'' after his earlier FaceHeelTurn is seen in the end happily living with Takako. Takako also decides she's had enough and switches sides in the end, it doesn't help much because she's still used by the BigBad Tree of Fenrir but can't hate her for trying.
* Effective in both the SoulEater anime and manga with [[spoiler: Crona]], though the way it plays out is rather... different.
