%% * Alec Lightwood and Jace Wayland from ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments''.''Literature/TheMortalInstruments''. Alec only acts like a {{Jerkass}} because he's [[ManlyGay scared of Clary stealing Jace from him.]] [[LoveRedeems He lightens up when he meets Magnus, though.]] Jace is introduced as a [[FightingNarcissist narcissistic, sarcastic young Shadowhunter]], but he lightens up when he meets Clary, making it another case of LoveRedeems. [[spoiler:It's heavily implied that Jace's {{Jerkass}} tendencies come from [[AbusiveParents being raised by Valentine]]]]

** And [[TheAlcoholic Haymitch Abernathy]] has a prickly exterior that would put a cactus to shame, and is an unrepentant DeadpanSnarker, but under that, cares about all the Tributes he's mentored, and [[spoiler: is part of the underground resistance to the Capitol.]]

* Rose Hathaway from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' is definitely not the most outwardly kind person, though in ''Blood Promise'' Sydney comments on how Rose seems so friendly and sociable towards her. She has no trouble insulting people, being [[BrutalHonesty Brutally Honest]] with Lissa, and exposing weaknesses in other people (like revealing the dirt poor background of Mia Rialdi). Yet she also goes our of her way to protect the people she cares about.

-->''The Amyrlin gave an exasperated sigh. “You remind me of my uncle Huan. No one could ever pin him down. He liked to gamble, too, and he’d much rather have fun than work. He died pulling children out of a burning house. He wouldn’t stop going back as long as there was one left inside. Are you like him, Mat? Will you be there when the flames are high?”''

* The title character of ''{{Literature/Eloise}}''. While certain parents take offence at her being the ScrewySquirrel, in reality Eloise is shown especially in the adaptations as a caring, generous person, giving gifts to Plaza Hotel employees and the less fortunate.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Katniss admits herself that she's not very friendly. There are quite a few times throughout the series where she has angry/rude outbursts. But they are often caused by the various stressful situations she's thrown into and the CrapsackWorld she lives in. Regardless, she still has a kind heart and would sacrifice anything in order to protect the people that she loves.

** Mr. Rafiel in ''[[MissMarple A Caribbean Mystery]]'' initially comes across as an impossibly rude old rich bastard, but turns out to be a surprisingly kind man under all his bluster. He and Miss Marple become fast friends over the course of the story.

** Taken much further in the movies. In ''Great Fairy Rescue'', Vidia gets Tink captured by humans but feels regret almost immediately. She goes for help and leads the expedition to rescue Tinker Bell, admitting her mistake when they were almost at the house. Later, she pushes Tink out the way and is trapped in a jar, and when rescued by the same fairy that she saved earlier, she becomes [[SixthRanger a permanent member of Tink's gang.]]
