** Olivier Armstrong seems cold, unforgiving and hard as nails, but while she won't forgive weakness from her underlings, she'll walk over hot coals for them all the same. For example, when some of her troops were going down a deep hole, under instructions from Captain Buccaneer that they should seal the door after twenty-four hours, the Major-General made sure to issue the man tasked with tracking those hours with a ''broken watch''.

** Mr. Satan is a glory-stealing, loudmouthed buffoon with [[SmallNameBigEgo an overly inflated ego]], but he's genuinely well-intentioned and willing to help when push comes to shove, even if it puts him in active danger.

** Shingo Tsukino can be rude and annoying to Usagi just like [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling most younger siblings]] and is pretty snarky, but he genuinely loves his sister and worries about her safety. The two basically have a normal sibling relationship: they may argue and annoy each other, but when things are serious, their family bond trumps all.
** Kou Yaten/Sailor Star Healer is the most harsh, arrogant and antisocial of the Starlights, but she means well and is determined to find Princess Kakyuu.

** Guts is violent, cruel, cold, and obsessed with his personal goals, which are often achieved at great cost or risk to others. But he genuinely cares about the people around him, is a compassionate leader, and his distant, uncaring demeanor [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation seems to]] come from a [[JerkassFacade desire to keep people away]] from the danger he's constantly in. It ... doesn't always work out that way.

* Helen, from ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', was introduced as a total bitch toward the main character, and a bully among the warriors in general (second only to Undine, who is [[JerkassFacade another case altogether]]). But once you get to a level of understanding with her - maybe even save each other's lives in the process - [[PowerOfFriendship you have Helen's back till the end]], [[PowerOfTrust and she'll never let you down.]]

* Cross Marian of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' fits. He has shown he has his JerkAss moments. But, he's not a complete jerkass. The manga has shown many hints and instances to illustrate that Cross isn't heartless, and while many people aren't fond of him, there's many people who apparently think very highly of him. Allen says he lives off lovers and acquaintances. So he's apparently someone you could be fond of, and even want to help, should he care to show his kinder side. He's shown protectiveness, empathy, sadness, concern, and hesitation. Although, most of these things are shown when it comes to Allen and women. He could very well be a victim of JerkAssFacade.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has Lyle Dylandy, who pretends to be a lazy HandsomeLech in the beginning, but that's a JerkAssFacade designed for two effects, one is to protect another character from falling in love with him via LovingAShadow [[spoiler: because she idolized his dead twin brother]], and the other is part of a more complicated DoubleAgent scheme. [[BecomingTheMask in the beginning, at least.]]

** Nami, who is TheScrooge, is also hiding a heart of gold. She was introduced as a thieving jerk. It seemed a JerkassFacade in order to help her village from a ruthless gang lord, but after she was freed from her debt, she made it apparent that she was still as greedy and manipulative as ever…which is justified to an extent, due to the fact that her family was very poor before her village was taken over. She has shown a soft spot for women and children and, thanks to CharacterDevelopment, even was willing to give up part of her wealth to [[BoisterousBruiser Rolling Lola]] out of thanks. She eventually is able to forgave a former member of the gang that had terrorized her village and tried to help him win back a kidnapped mermaid friend with a large part of the wealth collected by the crew.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Asuka Langley Soryu is an angry and temperamental {{Tsundere}}, but despite that, she still tries to be compassionate to Shinji. Unfortunately, he's just too [[ShrinkingViolet secluded]] to open up to her, leading to many angry confrontations between the two over his cowardice and her arrogance.

** Piccolo (Jr.), son of Piccolo (''Dragon Ball'''s most powerful villain) finally [[AvengingTheVillain kills the hero]], then [[TrainingFromHell mentors]] the hero’s son, [[MoralityPet Gohan]], and later [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices his life]] to [[RedemptionEqualsDeath save said Gohan]]. Piccolo [[CharacterDevelopment eventually becomes]] the closest thing the TrueCompanions have to a TeamDad.

* The FallenAngel and main protagonist of ''Manga/GabrielDropOut'', Gabriel is for the most part an apathetic and rude GamerChick, who disregards the very values she used to live by. Even still, she does occasionally have a few redeeming moments:
** While Gab herself won't admit it, Vigne acknowledges that she does have a caring side to her, stopping by Vigne's house during one of her sick days to not only check up on her, but to deliver her homework and refreshments which Gab purchased with what little remaining money she had.
** In episode 11 she helps Satania keep the dog she rescued by begging the owner of Satania's building to allow pets and even agreeing to work an extra day at the coffee house, all without telling anyone.
** While she still loses an awful lot of time, money and effort on her MMORPG, it's fair to say that she is still a healer type in-game, like when she began playing in the first place when she had the best intentions.
** In the second OVA, she breaks the rules to give a critically injured blind girl her sight back.
** There's also Satania, a boisterous and petty demon girl who adopts the stray dog that keeps stealing his melon bread because she cannot abide for it to be put down at a dog pound. She even gives the dog the bigger half of her melon bread when they reach Hokkaido. Even Gabriel is moved by the gesture and even pulls some strings behind Satania's back for her to be able keep the dog.

** Chisame, being the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]] in her class, remains pretty [[DeadpanSnarker snide and sarcastic]] as she gets drawn into Negi's magical adventures. However, she repeatedly demonstrates that she cares deeply for him and her classmates, and wants to be off adventuring with them, despite her [[{{Tsundere}} protests to the contrary]].
** While Evangeline for the most part insists on playing TokenEvilTeammate to Negi and the gang, she is constantly giving them advice and has rescued them from life-threatening situations on more than one occasion.

* Dola from ''Anime/CastleInTheSky''. She's a crusty, tough-talking old lady who is abrasive, bossy, and even controlling of her boys. She even tries to kidnap Sheeta (and steal her crystal) at the beginning of the movie. Later on, she grudgingly agrees to let Pazu help her save Sheeta and agree to take them aboard her ship. (While she's playing chess with her husband, who questions her about her affections for the kids, her response is, "Whaddaya mean by that, ya old fool?! I'm after treasure. That's all." Deep down, however, she's actually a softhearted person who comes to admire Pazu and Sheeta for their loyalty toward each other. (She does a brief double-take, though, when she overhears Pazu telling Sheeta that Dola is "much nicer than she pretends to be.")
* Muta from ''Anime/TheCatReturns'' is literally called a JerkWithAHeartOfGold at one point. He fits the build exactly. He has to be coaxed into helping others for selfish reasons, but for friends he's willing to fight an entire kingdom.
