** Sunny has feelers - [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] so thin that normal people can't even see them, which he uses to immobilize creatures and then cook them alive. If that hasn't seem evil enough, he later learns to control bodies by inserting his feelers into the nerve centers. And then later he learns how to channel the hunger of the [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination, that lives inside his cells]], turning his feelers into all-devouring tentacles, which without his control could wipe out all life on the planet. And despite all that, he's still a good guy.

* 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.

** From the same series there's also Kaworu, who's the last of the Angels with the potential of destroying all mankind [[HumanoidAbomination who happens to look like a human.]] Fortunately Kaworu is loving and compassionate, and after a token attempt at causing the extinction of all life on Earth, he gives up and asks Shinji to kill him in order to protect humanity.

Added DiffLines:

** Fugo's Purple Haze, a downright rabid-looking Stand that attacks indiscriminately with a flesh-eating virus. While Fugo can be aggressive and even violent on occasion, he's nowhere near as sinister as his Stand would suggest.

Added DiffLines:

** Other members of the academy have this to lesser degrees, such as Mina's Quirk "Acid", which lets her produce liquids of varying degrees of corrosiveness, or Tokoyami's LivingShadow quirk, or Bakugo's ability to generate nitroglycerin-fueled explosions from his hands. All of these characters are more heroic than their Quirk suggests (with the partial exception of Bakugo, who's more of a {{Jerkass}} AntiHero.)

** Legion introduces Demon Hunters who imbue themselves with fel (demonic) energy and powers gained from absorbing the souls of demons. They use this power to hunt down and destroy demons. While some are more evil than others, the majority of them lost everything else that mattered to them (home, family, etc) and have nothing left but a need for revenge, no matter the cost to themselves.

Added DiffLines:

** The 2nd Edition ''Complete Book of Necromancers'' offered new kits (variant classes) for necromancers who wanted to do good - or at least neutral - instead of rampantly evil. These included the Anatomist, who studied the dead to better learn how to heal the living, or the Deathslayer, who uses the powers of necromancy against the undead. The heroic example Deathslayer even uses magic to [[ActuallyADoombot puppeteer corpses]] to keep himself safe while he hunts.

*** In order to fight against some powerful necromancers, necromancy is needed to shield himself from the effects of their ritual, which would otherwise strip his own life from him. So, Harry comes close to breaking the law against raising the dead by [[spoiler:[[RaisingTheSteaks raising an animal instead]]. The law only prevents ''humans'' from being summoned back. Also, zombies are more powerful the older the remains they're raised from... And the animal in question is a ''65 million year old T-rex'']]. One of his allies calls this act both wrong and amazing, and she is the captain of the group meant to hunt down necromancers and dark wizards.

* Roleplay/''Glowfic'' has Corbelan, who has a magic system that eats worlds and can only be used to destroy things. He uses it to destroy Elves' oaths and destroy illness and weeds and such. [[spoiler: Also Melkor and Sauron but this totally counts as being good, those two are basically horribleness maximizers.]]
