* The french cartoon ''Les Contes de la Rue Broca'' has an episode called "Le Bon Petit Diable" or "The Good Little Devil". The titular character is a young demon who preffers doing good deeds, much to the displeasure of his parents. He ends up heading to heaven where, after confirming he is indeed a good kid, he is transformed into an angel (though he retains his horns and tail, just gold-colored instead of red).

** In ''Legion'', a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Dread Lord]] named Lothraxion can be found in the Paladin class hall. He was initially a part of the Burning Legion, but hated his comrades' violence and betrayed his master. He's still a [[HorrifyingHero massive, winged, vampire-monster with hooves]], but his horns are gone and he glows brightly. He's even classified as a humanoid instead of a demon.

Though, due to how demonhood works in WoW, he most likely reverted to a non-corrupted nathrezim.

* The PowerMetal band RhapsodyOfFire uses this trope too in their epic saga that covers a total of nine studio albums and some extended plays. [[HalfHumanHybrid Half Demon]] Dargor is at first loyal to the DarkLord Akron, but upon realizing how much of a dark lord Akron really is, Dargor opposes him and saves the day in the first story arc. Then, in the second story arc, he is part of the RagtagBunchOfMisfits and in the end [[spoiler:he truly ascends, his body merging with an Angel's soul so that "a god of cosmic light" would "breathe upon the Earth... again".]]

* From Buddhist traditions [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hariti Hariti]] or Kishimojin was a demon turned godesss. She was originally a demon with [[MotherOfAThousandYoung one hundred children]] who would [[ChildEater prey upon the children]]. The specifics vary by telling but in the Buddha managed to make her realize the suffering she caused and got her to change her ways. Afterwards she ate only pomegranates and became a goddess who protected children and helped mothers give birth safely.

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' allows low-level demons who aren't on board with Evil to switch to the side of the Angels and become Redeemed. (Angels can do something similar and become [[FallenAngel Fallen]]). The Redeemed are extra-powerful fighters against demons, but many of their powers are paid for directly out of their KarmaMeter and thus put their Redemption at risk.

* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' has [[spoiler:Michael]] attempting to become one in Season Two, in much the same way that Eleanor aimed to grow as a person throughout Season One. [[spoiler:By the end of "Rhonda, Diana, Jake and Trent," he's certainly succeeded from a moral standpoint, though he hasn't yet been allowed to formally defect to The Good Place.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}} & {{Dracula}}: [[ComicBook/BatmanVampire Red Rain]]'' had this happen to vampires, although Joker's OhCrap reaction was a bit {{narm}}y.

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}} & {{Dracula}}: [[ComicBook/BatmanVampire Red Rain]]'' had this happen to vampires, vampires- Batman is completely unharmed by crucifixes and holy water so long as he never drinks human blood- although Joker's OhCrap reaction was a bit {{narm}}y.



* Used in the ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Series-1183 Coven of Reformed Supernaturals]]'' series, specifically in the second story ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-17637/MarcusSLazarus+The+Gathering+of+Supernatural+Psychopaths.htm The Gathering of Supernatural Psychopaths]]''; Cole Turner of ''Series/Charmed'', who was [[FutureMeScaresMe both the main villain and founding member of the Coven]] in the first story, is brought back to life in ''Gathering'' as a 'Goldlighter', essentially a warrior version of Whitelighters who are intended to actively fight evil rather than just advise others.



* Not a good idea if you're a demon in ''Series/{{Charmed}}''. Cole tried this, and he died. Kyra also tried this, and she also died. Finally, Drake also tried this, and he was successful, for a year. Then he died.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', [[spoiler: because [[HalfHumanHybrid Ashi is part Aku]], he was able to activate her SuperPoweredEvilSide and take her over. Eventually, Jack is able to pull a IKnowYoureInThereFight by invoking ThePowerOfLove, and she cast away her father's influence while retaining his entire power set... including his ability to time travel.]]

** A ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' web article famously had a [[HornyDevils succubus]] [[KnightInShiningArmor paladin]]. [[http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/fc/20050824a Here are the stats]], and [[http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/oa/20061017a here is the adventure]]. Notably, not only does she [[RedemptionDemotion refuse to use her "evil" powers]], but as a being who is LawfulGood but [[MadeOfEvil Made Of]] ChaoticEvil she counts as every alignment at the same time, and thus suffers from both GoodHurtsEvil ''and'' AllergicToEvil (and [[OrderVersusChaos Chaos Hurts Law and Law Hurts Chaos]]). BeingGoodSucks indeed.

** Another succubus example, Eludecia the Succubus Paladin, who is featured prominently in the 3rd Edition Module ''The Legend of the Silver Skeleton''. A succubus who reformed after falling in love with a celestial lord, she took up armor and sword and fought other demons as a paladin. But she made too many enemies, eventually falling victim to the marilith Aishpara, general of a powerful balor. Eludecia was beaten, but not killed; Aishpara used a powerful spell that [[StrippedToTheBone stripped her to the bone]] and then turned said bones to silver, placing the skeleton inside a gelatinous cube. Due to her Ring of Regeneration, poor Eludecia couldn't die, her body [[AndIMustScream continually regenerating and dissolving]] and [[BadassInDistress trapped in a sealed catacombs until]], hopefully, she is rescued by the {{Player Character}}s in the storyline.

* The 17th century Lemegeton and 19th century Dictionnaire Infernal (both demonology books) depict Marchosias, a literal NobleDemon looking to achieve this trope. Amy, another demon featured in the Lesser Key of Solomon, the Dictionnaire Infernal, the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, and the Munich Manual of Demonic Magic, has the identical goal. However, in both cases, the books describes their hopes to be impossible.
