* During her first appearance in BattleMoonWars, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Matou Sakura]] relies exclusively on her own shadow magic to defend herself and really doesn't do a very good job of it. After she's kidnapped, nearly turned back into [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Dark Sakura]] by Zouken Matou, and subsequently rescued with ThePowerOfLove, Sakura [[TookALevelInBadass Takes a Level in Badass]] and starts using her connection to [[TheDevil Angra Mainyu]] as the power source for her attacks while still remaining a textbook example of a NiceGirl. May also be an aversion of EvilIsNotAToy.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', Sunandi eventually understands that neither Ehiru nor Nijiri are bad people, but their ability to kill people in their dreams and make them enjoy and welcome it just goes against anything Sunandi considers right. The Gatherers simply believe they are doing a service to the community by allowing those unwilling or unable to go on a pleasant way out and they genuinely care for Hananja's faithful.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheInfected'': The second book stars Gabriel, a scary mind-controller, and his efforts to turn his life around and become a good person. Starting with joining a riot squad so he can keep a series of protests from turning violent. It helps a lot that his powers work more easily when helping people, but he's still ''terrified'' and rightly so in future books where he discovers how few his limitations really are.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'':
** [[spoiler:Iseult]] can kill people by infecting them with a MysticalPlague, and it's implied that the mechanism that lets her do that would also allow her to turn other witches into zombie puppets against their will. Nonetheless, she's an altruistic, heroic person, helping others in need and only using her powers to aid people.
** The Marstoki Adders can poison any liquid in their vicinity just by standing next to it, but they're also the inifiniely loyal and dedicated PraetorianGuard of the (non-villainous) Empress.

* In ''{{Roleplay/RubyQuest}}'', Ruby's third eye qualifies. The eye can see things that her normal eyes can't, which did come in useful on a couple of occasions, but it also hurt like a motherfucker and bled rather nastily each time she used it. When it started to feel good, the genre-savvy players wisely decided to avoid using it.

** Kenshiro is the successor to the deadly martial art known as Hokuto Shinken, which relies on hitting [[PressurePoint pressure points]] to kill your enemies in very gruesome ways (usually by [[YourHeadAsplode making their heads explode]]). Ken also happens to be one of the kindest people in the entire CrapsackWorld he inhabits, and uses the pressure point techniques of the art to heal as well as to kill.

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', it's made clear from the start that Ayanami Rei is not a normal human, but somehow directly connected to the creation of the [[EldritchAbomination giant nightmare horror fighting]], [[HumongousMecha giant organic superweapons]]. Her actual purpose is to [[spoiler: more or less extinguish all life on Earth, and her superpowers (which are not really on full display until ''End of Evangelion'') are the same as those wielded by the giant monsters that are hell-bent on doing the same]]. Regardless, she is identified as one of the good guys... until she actually ''does'' use her power. But she did it for love, and mostly because Shinji told her to, so it's all okay.
