* ''Anime/KillLaKill'''s [[TheHero hero]], Ryuko, is [[SirSwearsALot foul-mouthed]], [[HotBlooded temperamental]], and has a vengeful streak that would make Sasuke Uchiha proud. Still, it's not a good idea to mess with those she loves. She also hates the SocialDarwinist AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil [[spoiler:until they become her TrueCompanions]], and she's willing to help anyone who doesn't piss her off or [[AllMenArePerverts ogle at her]].

* Taishou from ''Manga/MekkoRarekko is a great example. At first, Taishou was a bit of a bully and a {{Jerkass}} towards Buchi his only friend in the first two volumes. But the reason that the two are friends is because back in second grade when Taishou saw that Buchi was being bullied, he wanted to help him out. And its not just because he felt it was the right thing to do. Taishou was bullied a lot in first grade and when he saw that Buchi was being bullied, it reminded him of his DarkAndTroubledPast and he didn't want to see someone else go through the pain of being bullied.

Because he grew jealous of Buchi working on a project with Fukami, instead of with him he ends up [[spoiler: raping Buchi. After a [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan punch to the face]] from Fukami, he realized what he had just done and he breaks down in tears. He gets much better in the third issue after [[TookALevelInKindness he takes a level in kindness]] and he goes from a {{Jerkass}} to a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.]]

** Vegeta himself becomes one in the TimeSkip following the Cell Games, where he becomes a loving, if not [[WellDoneSonGuy distant]], father to main timeline Trunks, and he's become more attached to Bulma. He also performs a selfless HeroicSacrifice on Majin Buu later onward, and fights with Goku on friendly terms for the first time against Kid Buu, also fighting for the Earth for the first time. At the end, he's a stark contrast to the callous, self-absorbed {{Jerkass}} that came to destroy Earth years ago. This is best shown in ''Battle Of Gods'', where he swallows his pride and tries to please Beerus, and absolutely [[UnstoppableRage loses it]] when he [[BerserkButton slaps Bulma]].

* Gintoki Sakata from ''{{Manga/Gintama}}'' is a very good example of this. He's rude and snarky to almost everyone and often scoffs off other people's problems as none of his business. However, when push comes to shove, his kindness and sense of honor pushes him beyond humanly possible limits and the juxtaposition certainly makes him seem that much more awesome. Even more, he might risk his ''own life'' in order to help the needed ones. ** Then there is Hijikata from the Shinsengumi. He is even harsher than Gintoki, but if the situation is very serious, he might help in any posible ways to help the needed ones.

** ''Anime/MobileSutGundamAGE'': Woolf in the first generation. He enjoys annoying his crewmates and tries to nab the Gundam from Flit, but he looks out for Flit in combat. By Gen 2 he's still a cocky maverick, but much more of a mentor figure.

** Seto Kaiba is an arrogant male RichBitch, who rips up rare cards just so that he can have the only copies in the world. But his asshole attitude is because he’s made himself hard to take care of his younger brother, Mokuba. *** He actually was a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk when first introduced (and even tortures Mokuba in the manga after he loses a game), but Dark Yugi's Mind Crush destroyed the evil in his heart, letting him rebuild himself as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* Parodied in the first episode of ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'', where the brothers [[OutOfGenreExperience turn the show into a typical idol anime]] to increase viewership. Karamatsu establishes himself as a [[TroubledButCute lovable bad boy]] by thoroughly mocking the new show's heroine and then making it up to her by [[HeroicSacrifice diving in front of a car to save an absurdly tiny puppy]].

** Minako Aino/Sailor Venus comes off as this to an extent in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' (less so in the anime). She is brash, fist-happy, and constantly treats Artemis like crap (which genuinely hurts him). But she regularly defends fellow students from bullies, will endure a great amount of hardship in the name of her mission, and would protect Sailor Moon with her life (and expects the other Senshi to do so).

** ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'': Domon Kasshu has to be the Gundam poster boy for this trope. He's got zero manners, major anger issues, and drives his partner ''nuts''; in fact he's basically a straight-up JerkAss at the start and ''matures'' into this trope. But he's also a FriendToAllChildren, [[WorthyOpponents respects his rivals]], and does a good job as a WarriorTherapist when he doesn't need one himself.

* ''Manga/GakuenAlice'' has a great example in Natsume Hyuuga, who is pretty much horrible to Mikan from the get-go and [[{{Tsundere}} remains so even as he gradually falls for her]]. His behavior towards Mikan changes in small steps over the course of the manga, and he has gotten to the point where he would [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther give his own life for her sake]]. But all in all, while he is rather cold towards most others you do sense his innate kindness, especially through his interactions with Ruka or You-chan. You also eventually find out that [[spoiler: his sister was being kept hostage and he was [[DeclarationOfProtection doing everything he could to protect her]]]].
