** Ash's Pokédex may be [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic]], [[SourSupporter condescending]] [[InsuferableGenius and loves to remind everyone of how smart it is]], but it has Ash's best interests at heart, always willing to help him when it counts.

* Cordelia Chase shows her kinder side in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10204239/ Mirror, Mirror]]'' when she's in a mirror-verse. According to her, she has to act like a RichBitch or her parents give her hell. The same applies to the Cordettes and all of them have to snitch on the others. In the mirror-verse, it's only Xander and whoever he brings with him so she's free to act like a slob, drive like a maniac, and generally be a friendly though rather destructive girl (such as unlocking her own house by kicking down a door then smashing the alarm system).

* Some examples from ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'':
** Ash's Pokédex may be [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic]], [[SourSupporter condescending]] [[InsuferableGenius and loves to remind everyone of how smart it is]], but it has Ash's best interests at heart, always willing to help him when it counts.
** [[TheRival Gary Oak]] is a tad egotistical, abrasive, and likes to tease Ash, but at the end of the day, he's not a bad guy. His teaming up with [[JerkAss Paul]] in the Fuchsia Tag Tournament proves that he has many lines he wouldn't cross, and he's not above giving his Pokemon praise for a job well done.
** Clair, the Blackthorn Gym Leader is a downplayed example. [[GoodIsNotSoft She never goes easy on her challengers]] and can be very nasty with people who piss her off (especially those with SmallNameBigEgo attitudes), but she's very nice to those who earn her respect, and she gladly gives praise and encouragement to those who deserve it.

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', an AlternateUniverseFic about the life of [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]], he starts out as this. Being in his early twenties, the young peacock noble is the prideful and short-tempered perfectionist he's known as in canon, but he doesn't doubt the love his parents and old nanny have toward him. His condescending attitude is born from being scorned by almost everyone as an abomination and a bad omen due to his white coloring, no matter what he did to please people. [[FreudianExcuse Eventually he stopped trying to win people's acceptance and decided give them the monster they were determined to see]]. However, he was the only noble in general to show any shred of kindness toward his family's wolf guard, winning their {{undying loyalty}}. While he initially treats his might-be-fiancée Lady Lianne with disdain, her gentle nature and [[ParentalNeglect vulnerability]] behind her regal lady's facade win his heart. Unfortunately, as his [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]] and attempts to prevent his fate corrupt him like in canon, [[TookALevelInJerkass his heart of gold has eroded]] by the time of the movie's happenings to the point that it's barely visible anymore. Fortunately, [[LoveMartyr Lianne's]] love eventually sets him more or less on the right path to the point that he [[spoiler:[[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy stops his attempt]] to [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe force her into marriage with him]], prompting her to marry him anyway]]. He also [[spoiler:sends [[TheDragon the Wolf Boss]] and the wolf pack away before his final confrontation with Po, [[SparedByTheAdaptation sparing them from their canon fates]]]]. Following [[spoiler:his return to Lianne after avoiding his canon ending, he retains many of his negative qualities, but resigns himself to live the rest of his life in secret imprisonment of his wife's home so that he can stay and protect her and [[PapaWolf their son]]]].

* In ''Fanfic/OldWest'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Rango}} Rattlesnake Jake]] is this with a dose of AdaptationalHeroism. The [[TheDreaded Grim Reaper]] of the Mojave Desert is intimidating, brusque, violent and a remorseless killer. While he's initially indifferent of [[DeterminedHomesteader Grace Glossy]] and her son Teddy, he slowly comes to care for them while having to keep them safe. He helps Teddy in overcoming his sight problem and devotes himself to Grace when she confesses her feelings toward him.

** Carol Danvers is a downplayed variant, a StepfordSnarker and a BrokenAce who is actually very nice once you get past the understandably spiky outer shell, and Harry almost invariably sees the heart of gold. However, the narrative makes mention of a pre-Spidey Peter Parker, who so happened to be unfortunate enough to catch her on a bad day.
