Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BillAndBenTheFlowerpotMen'' aren't ''jerks'', per-say, but they love playing pranks and can be somewhat insensitive. That being said, they're willing to apologize when they need to, and are perfectly happy to help anyone who needs it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'':
** Otto has been known to be an [[ItsAllAboutMe egocentric]] CompetitionFreak, but he has stepped in and helped out his friends when they needed it on several occasions, including helping save Reggie's birthday party, helping Sam maintain a false image of being an awesome rollerblader on the news, and getting a street hockey game postponed so Reggie wouldn't have to choose between it and an all-state volleyball tournament.
** As much as [[BigBrotherBully Lars]] loves tormenting the Rockets, he really cares about his little brother Twister deep down, not letting his friends insult him (only he can do that - it's a brother thing) and feeling genuinely sad when the Rockets faked his death.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/LittlePrincess'': Puss can be quite mean to Scruff at times, but still seems to like him on the whole. Perhaps the most notable example is in "I Want a Pen Pal" - when Scruff loses his squeaky bone, Puss somehow manages to type up a letter and order him a new bone through the post.

** Rainbow Dash is hot-headed and can be a bit arrogant sometimes, but her heart's in the right place and she's loyal to her friends no matter the circumstances.

to:

** Rainbow Dash is hot-headed and can be a bit arrogant sometimes, but her heart's in the right place and she's loyal to her friends no matter the circumstances. She's also shown to be a very good motivator in most episodes, especially to Fluttershy and the pegasi in ''Hurricane Fluttershy'' where she coached them all, and got them all back in the air after failing to rise the water up to Cloudsdale the first time. Then there's some episodes where she's neither HotBlooded, nor arrogant and is genuinely wanting to help her friends.


Added DiffLines:

** Soarin and especially Spitfire as of the episodes Wonderbolts Academy and Newbie Dash could qualify too. While they may strive to be the best, and mock their teammates, it's intended to be friendly teasing, and they reveal they're NotSoDifferent from Rainbow Dash giving into peer pressure, while at the same time genuinely caring for their friends and willing to step up to be reasonable authority figures when they are needed. They even reveal they were also hazed as was Fleetfoot and a few other 'Bolts on their first days as Wonderbolts with Spitfire saying "You don't wanna know." when talking about her nickname. Spitfire's even got the excuse of not being good with kids and her drill sergeant nasty persona being the only thing she knows due to being raised by the military. While Soarin has been shown to be nicer and more down to earth like post Season 2 Rainbow Dash at most times, he still qualifies as this in Newbie Dash having given into peer pressure. It is for their similarities that many people ship Soarin with Rainbow Dash or Spitfire.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Pretty much any recurring jerk turns out to be this, but Buford may be the clearest example. He was a genuine bully in his first appearance, but "Raging Bully" gave him his own odd honor code, "Voyage to the Bottom of Buford" showed him to be incredibly lonely, and after that he basically became a cross between PunchClockVillain and [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Occasionally Nasty Teammate]]. Becomes [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments downright heartwarming]] in the ChristmasEpisode (he's Christmas wish is simply [[spoiler:that his friends think of him as a nice person]]) and "Summer Belongs to You" (he [[spoiler:purposely loses his own bet to help the group get home in time]]).

** Amethyst steals, is quick with insults, and is the first one to laugh at misfortune yet pals around with Steven the most.

to:

** Amethyst steals, is quick with insults, and is the first one to laugh at misfortune yet pals around with Steven the most.most and is the most willing to form friendly relations with humans.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Lapis Lazuli]] is the proud owner of a deep, bubbling pit of rage directed against other Gems, at one point stealing the oceans ''across the entire planet'' in order to get what she wanted, but she's willing to choke her anger down for Steven's sake and has begun to learn some measure of forgiveness towards her former enemies.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck. Yes, he is egotiscial and very much [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]], but he cares very much about his friends and family and is first and foremost a hero that will always answer the call to action when the need arises. This becomes even more clear when you realize he is actually [[HeroWithBadPublicity despised by all the population of Saint-Canard]] (to the point that when he seemingly died in ''Dead Duck'', ''[[UngratefulBastard they didn't even bothered with giving him a proprer burial]]''), and he ''still'' tries helping everyone despite it.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'': Scrooge may be greedy and cheap, but it is shown many times that he does care about his family and friends. One good example of this is in "[[Recap/DuckTalesADuckTalesValentine A DuckTales Valentine]]", where it turned out that his family was what he loved most of all and not his wealth.

* On ''WesternAnimation/GoldieAndBar'', TheBigBadWolf, a.k.a. "Big Bad", is this mixed with IneffectualSympatheticVillain. Sure, he's regularly a pest to both the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. However, he schemes are rarely effective and when they do work, he's often regretful. He's also shown several redeeming qualities, including being willing to try niceness and being apologetic and helpful after realizing that he's acted like a jerk.
