Goes hand-in-hand with DarkIsNotEvil. [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Friendly Neighborhood Vampires]] also often exhibit this trope. Contrast MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch; that's when it's a matter of a member of a (commonly thought to be) AlwaysChaoticEvil species decides to cowboy up for the good guys. A subtrope is FaustianRebellion, where powers the BigBad granted to a former minion are used this way. Compare to MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds.

* The scarab of the ComicBook/BlueBeetle is revealed to be an agent of the Reach, an ancient enemy of the Comicbook/{{Green Lantern}}s who created the scarab as part of a hive mind that controls the wearer. Fortunately, the Blue Beetle's scarab gets separated from the hive mind, manages to develop a sense of self thanks to the good heart of its wearer Jaime Reyes, and becomes a sentient being of good.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has a case of Bad-'''Looking''' Powers, Good People in the form of Tonio Trussardi from ''Diamond is Unbreakable''. His [[FightingSpirit Stand]] Pearl Jam allows him to make food that heals the physical ailments of those who eat it...however, it does so by replacing the afflicted body parts, often rather [[BodyHorror viscerally]]. When Okuyasu dines at Trussardi, he has puffy eyes from lack of sleep, a stiff shoulder, cavities in two teeth, indigestion, and athlete's foot; Tonio's food fixes him by [[spoiler:almost literally making him cry his eyes out, making him scratch a softball-sized wad of dead skin off his shoulder, launching the rotten teeth out of his jaw like bullets, and making his digestive tract fall out of his stomach (we don't see what happens with the athlete's foot).]] Is it any wonder Josuke initially thought Tonio was a bad guy?

* Ixpellia from ''[[AllThereInTheManual StrikerS Sound Stage X]]'' of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', an immortal king who has the power to turn fields of corpses into armies of Mariages, which are SuperSoldier [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Cyborg Zombies]] filled with battle lust. [[ShroudedInMyth History remembered her as a barbaric Dark King]], though, in reality, she's a jaded MysteriousWaif sick of all the fighting and tried to [[KingInTheMountain seal herself and her army of the dead away from the world as much as possible]].

** ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'' has some Darkened called [[VigilanteMan Deluded Vigilantes]], who received powers from [[TheCorruption the Darkness]] but try to use them for good, fighting crime and other Darkspawns. Since they use powers that are evil by their very nature, they usually end up becoming ruthless with a warped perception of what a crime is, but because they still are motivated by good intentions, this means [[MagicalGirl Princesses]] can actually try to reason with them and solve the situation peacefully, typically by offering them new, safer powers (typically by making them [[SuperEmpowering Sworn]]. It's also mentioned there are very rare cases of such Darkened who ''do'' have [[HeroicWillpower enough willpower to keep control over their abilities]], and [[FaustianRebellion can become valuable allies to Princesses while still keeping them]].
