* Ashi from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' and her sisters are born into a cult called the Daughters Of Aku, who preach that [[GoodIsBadAndBadIsGood Aku is good while Jack is evil]]. But after the death of her sisters and seeing Jack's kind personality, Ashi starts going through a HeelRealization, seeing that Jack isn't the evil being her [[AbusiveParents mother]] preached about. Then she finally joins Jack in his adventure back to the past. [[spoiler:Bonus points for her and her sisters being ''literal'' daughters of Aku.]]

* Merlin Satanspawn of Simon Green's ''{{Nightside}}'' series was born of the devil to be TheAntichrist, but he "refused the honor". Which isn't to say he's a nice guy by any definition, just that he's not his ''father's'' guy.
* Sam Linnfer from Catherine Webb's ''{{Waywalkers}}'' is literally {{Satan}}, shunned by gods, angels and humans alike for millennia. His divine power is immensely powerful and destructive but in the end [[spoiler: he uses it to save the universe, almost at the cost of his own existence.]] And people still hate him.

** In the final book, this turns out to be an apparent ''double'' subversion, as it turns out that Harry and Voldemort are [[spoiler: each descended from one of the three Peverell brothers.]] As such, though they are likely several generations removed, Harry and Voldemort are unknowningly ''distant'' '''''COUSINS'''''. Hints at this are laid out at least as far back as ''Half Blood Prince'', which sees Marvolo Gaunt blatantly mention the "Peverell coat of arms", and indicate that it at one point belonged to Slytherin or to someone related to him. Gaunt was very proud of his relation to Slytherin at the very least. The Peverell coat of arms (actually a symbol for [[spoiler: The Deathly Hallows]]) actually indicates that the Peverells did actually own said objects. While nobody knows if the brother who had gotten the Wand from Death had any children, we know that two of them did, and that each passed down their Hallows along the family bloodlines: [[spoiler: The Resurrection Stone and the Invisibility Cloak of Death]] each wound up in the hands of direct descendants of these two brothers at least up until Marvolo's time, as he still possessed it. Presumably after his death the ring ended up in the hands of his son Morfin. At that point, Voldemort got hold of his ancestor's heirloom without ever knowing what he actually had after murdering his uncle. The other wound up in Harry's hands and he ultimately gained mastery of all three. This would have made him 'Master of Death' which sounds like it might be something akin to an anti-christ itself. And Harry rejects this as much as he rejected the idea of being the heir of Slytherin. Unlike Harry, Voldemort fully embraced the idea. However due to their very distant relationship, Harry actually ''could'' be considered to be an heir to Slytherin, though not necessarily the heir that would open the Chamber. Technically, he did do so, but he did it in order to rescue Ginny from Voldemort. Though Harry realizes his connection to the brother who originally owned his cloak, he never seems to put that together with his distant relation to Voldemort, since the Gaunts, and later Voldemort himself, are also descended from the Peverells. Voldemort, who knew nothing of the legend of the Hallows, never even has the issue cross his mind. So on one hand, we have the anti-anti-christ (Harry, Master of Death, who could have been a possible Heir of Slytherin due to his distant relation to the man), and on the other, the anti-christ (Voldemort, who legitimately ''was'' and ''embraced'' being the Heir of Slytherin). The fact that this ends up being revealed as a FamilyFeud, despite neither side knowing it, makes the situation that much stranger.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'': [[spoiler:The protagonist, Yuya Sakaki, is one of four reincarnations of Zarc, the Demon Duelist who fused with his dragons to become a being of invincible power and [[OmnicidalManiac nearly destroyed the Original Dimension]]. However, Yuya truly believes in peace and [[ForHappiness desires to make everyone happy,]] [[AllLovingHero enemies included.]] Two of the other reincarnations also have [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl good]] [[SpiritAdvisor intentions,]] but unfortunately what they want doesn't matter that much as Zarc [[ApocalypseMaiden can possess all his reincarnations and force them to bend to his will.]]]]

* VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}: Protagonist Ragna the Bloodedge is the reincarnation of an EldritchAbomination that nearly destroyed the world almost a century earlier in the setting, with its remains being used as his new replacement right arm. The second game reveals his destiny to be the harbinger of destruction and the catalyst to revive the beast to destroy the world. This makes him the enemy of nearly the entire cast. Naturally, he has a ScrewDestiny attitude and some CharacterDevelopment helps push him on a different path towards becoming the "Protector of the Azure". [[spoiler: By the third game however, fate seems to have forced his hand and put him on the path of destruction against his will.]]

* ''BrutalLegend'': Eddie Riggs is either this or MessianicArchetype, [[ProphecyTwist depending on which translation of the prophecies you believe.]] [[spoiler: Makes sense, as he is the spawn of that world's previous hero and villainess.]]

* Millenia takes up this role in ''GrandiaII''. As one of the pieces of the fallen dark god Valmar (the game's thinly-veiled Satan {{expy}}), she's supposed to be as evil as her master and trying to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Then she [[spoiler:[[LoveRedeems falls in love with the hero]].]] Oops.

* Surprisingly, considering how he was introduced, Lil'E from ''{Webcomic/Sinfest}'' fits this archtype. Though originally introduced as a loony fanboy for the Devil, revealed back story and an encounter with Lethe water have caused his personality to do a complete 180.
