* ''{{Nightside}}'': Razor Eddie, "Punk God of the Straight Razor", is described as "an extremely disturbing agent of good. The forces of good didn't get a say in the matter". Fair enough, since he's a reformed -- but not ''retired'' -- SerialKiller who targets those who threaten children and the homeless and has been known to leave buildings soaked in blood but conspicuously absent of corpses.

*** The Twelfth Doctor is pretty much a reconstruction of this trope. Clara goes from being doted on by an appeasing old man with a handsome face to being pestered by a glowering, ruthless pragmatist with a paranoid streak. It takes her until the ending of episode 8 for her to understand he genuinely means to help as many people as possible with limited resources and isn't being a jerk for the sake of it.

* Linder from TheBridgeUS is definitely on the side of the angels (working in a homeless shelter and moonlighting by smuggling abused women over the Mexican border into the US), but is undeniably creepy (speaking in a low CreepyMonotone, acting fidgety when asked too many questions about what he does, and showing a willingness to hurt people that get in his way). His associate Bob (who runs a safehouse for the women rescued) is a bit more charismatic, but apparently has a ''very'' DarkAndTroubledPast (he used to be a drug addict, and he apparently assaulted someone [[NoodleImplements using a dirtbike]] in Tulsa).

* Zigzagged with the ''Series/AddamsFamily'' franchise. In the original comic strips they're just plain creepy while the series could be the codifier for this trope. The films lean more towards the creepy than the good, especially regarding Wednesday but still qualify.

* Arclo from ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' calls himself "a friend of Radiants" and gives Lift some help, but he's also a [[spoiler:hive mind made of dozens of scuttling insects, and introduces himself to Lift in the middle of the night, in a dark alley, having killed two of Nale's acolytes with astonishing ease.]]

** Other Fanfic/TheShadowWars example: [[CuteGhostGirl Ruby Gift]] is clearly a [[HorrifyingHero heroine]] from start to finish of her undeath, but she's a Wraith. She's repeatedly shown as being a [[FriendlyGhost friend]] to heroice protagonists, and in the end [[spoiler:redeems her kin]] and leads them in an action that helps save the whole world at the [[HeroicSacrifice cost of their own undead existences]] But she'still a Wraith, with an unnnerving tendency to switch into her horrifing Death Aspect when something upsets her. The same goes for her mother Mitta Gift and her co-mother Three Leaf.

* There's a serious reason why angels in Literature/TheBible always say "Be not afraid!" to mortals before trying to say anything else. While a few of them do embody the ThemeParkVersion of angels that so many of us imagine when hearing the term, a majority of angels were [[CosmicHorror downright]] [[CthulhuMythos eldritch]] in their appearance. Some biblical descriptions of angels are almost identical to what today would be perceived by the public as a UFO sighting.
