** Daffy Duck once briefly obtained a treasure that included the services of a genie who really wanted to help him... but Daffy, [[{{Jerkass}} being who he is]], attacks the genie as a rival for his treasure. The consequences are not good.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1481 SCP-1481]] used to be this kind of genie, by his own admission... until some jerk wished he was stoned out of his head, entirely out of spite. Now, SCP-1481 is rendered completely incompetent because of his drugged-out state, and the really sick thing about it is, the jerk who made him that way also wished that it couldn't be wished-away, ever.

[[ForTheEvulz just to be a dick]]. Now, SCP-1481 is rendered completely incompetent because of his drugged-out state, and the really ''really'' sick thing about it is, is that the jerk who made him that way also wished that it couldn't for him to be wished-away, ever. in this state used his second wish to make his first wish irreversible... and then ''[[WastefulWishing walked away without even bothering to make a third wish]]''.

** In ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'', he's not even obligated to help Aladdin or Jasmine at all anymore. He just does so because he likes them. (And there are hints that they're better friends than any other humans he's known.)

* The 'Angel of the Wishes' from ''Only One Last Wish'' by Mia Ikumi varies between this and JackassGenie depending on what you ask: as she hates people asking to be given something they could get on their own, such a wish will be interpreted in the worst possible way, but if the wish is something they couldn't possibly achieve (such as raise the dead) she'll go out of her way to help them

This is the Benevolent Genie, the generally lesser-used character type of the three. This is because the very existence of such a genie is a DeusExMachina for most problems if the genie is so powerful they can just magic them away, becoming a SidekickExMachina. One common way of adding conflict is to make the genie so ditzy that their usefulness can end up screwing things up in a StopHelpingMe kind of way, by limiting the number of wishes that can be made, or at least giving the genie some sort of exploitable weakness.
