* The demons of ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' are universally evil, but one was turned from its nature by an unusually successful exorcism.
** Also, the demons recruited a human banker to secure financial records in exchange for a cut of their profits. After fulfilling his end, the banker learned the truth of their aims and rebelled. [[RedemptionEqualsDeath It didn't work out for him.]]

** The Joker of all people tried going straight in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} story ''Joker's Millions'', not out of a desire to do good but simply because he'd been led to believe he'd inherited enough money to never need to commit crime again. This made more sense for the character back then when he was a villain with a gimmick rather than the elemental force of chaos he has become.

** The Riddler also performed a Heel Face Turn, but this too was prompted by amnesia (in Riddler's case, induced by a blow to the head). Additional trauma (from a bomb blast) later returns Riddler to the rogues' gallery.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''ComicBook/{{Madballs}}'' comic book published by Star Comics (a subsidiary of Marvel Comics that is now defunct), the second series Madballs and the Super Madballs were initially created by [[BigBad Dr. Viktor Frankenbeans]] to be {{Evil Counterpart}}s to the original Madballs, but they ended up turning against the doctor and siding with the original Madballs.

** After the events of AHM, Dirge leaves the Decepticons after they abandon him, and he and Swindle aid the neutrals and Autobots during the post-war upraising in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersRobotsInDisguise''. Similarly, Tankor and Squawkbox depart from the Cons as well as they felt the peace achieved with Megatron's defeat was more preferable to the fighting (Tankor himself went on to be a supporting cast member in the ''ComicBook/TheTransformersWindblade'' series).

Added DiffLines:

** The Scavengers start out as a pack of corpse-looting petty thieves with some pretty nasty anti-organic bigotry. They grow out of it, eventually deciding to find traumatised post-war ex-Decepticons and help them recover.
-->'''Crankcase:''' What you're describing sounds suspiciously like ''helping people''.\\
'''Krok:''' I know, because guess what? I think we'd be pretty good at it.

* This is fairly common for {{Alternate Universe}}s in general, but ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse is a great MarvelComics example; many of the mainstream continuity's villains are either slightly less vile villains (Mister Sinister, for example, who [[EvenEvilHasStandards is opposed to Apocalypse's genocidal desires]]), or outright heroes.

** ComicBook/{{Mystique}} pulls so many [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Heel Face Turns and Face Heel Turns]] she might as well just give up and have a pivot installed.

* The Comicbook/DCRebirth ''Comicbook/{{Nightwing}}'' storyline "Blüdhaven" introduces the Run-Offs, a support group for former villains who left Gotham to reinvent themselves. They react poorly to a member of the Bat-family coming to town, but they're sincere.

** The Catwoman of Earth-Two, an alternate universe in ''TheDCU'', also turned over a new leaf when she recovered from amnesia. [[AmnesiacDissonance Horrified]], she was willing to go to jail for the crimes she had committed. When Franchise/{{Batman}} sprung her from jail to help him, she [[{{Retcon}} revealed]] that she had lied; she had actually chosen to be a villain and then chosen to reform because she realized that it was her only chance for a normal life (whereupon they fell in love, got married, and had a daughter, Huntress).
