* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', after the disastrous marriage to [[HotGuysAreBastards Keifer Porter]], the Queens have decreed that their daughters can only get married if ''all'' of the surviving ones of age agree to it. Thanks to Keifer, Trini is extremely standoffish towards the man her sisters favor, agreeing only because otherwise the Porters will buy him and she hates that family, but she warms to him gradually.

* The female Dr. Light, during [[Franchise/TheDCU DC's]] ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. It's particularly interesting -- and personally amusing -- to note that, of the 562 characters featured in this all-encompassing CrisisCrossover, which include the renowned Superman and Batman, she is the only one who received any CharacterDevelopment. Her obnoxious behavior was later {{retconned}} into being the result of chemicals in the soda she was drinking. This [[CanonDiscontinuity itself was ignored by later writers, of course]]. It's even lampshaded in the ''JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' title, where ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} recognizes that Kimiyo has been taken down and replaced by an impostor after seeing how politely she is acting.

* In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' was a temperamental jerkass who trusted no one, let alone other crimefighters. However ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' manages to befriend her as they work together, and for the end of the story Barbara looks happier and less cold.



* In the early years, Maggie Sawyer seemed to have a personal vendetta against ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'', often tried to arrest him as a vigilante. After Superman saved her from a terrorist plot, she began to warm up to him and eventually became a trusted ally.

* The novelization of the original AlienVsPredator comic arc does a more thorough defrosting of IceQueen Machiko Noguchi. She was so unintentionally aloof from the colonists under her authority that she was dubbed the "Nitrogen Queen" behind her back. Only three months into her stay does she realize that they all hate her, and immediately sets about changing her status among them. She makes decent but slow headway until the Predators begin hunting colonists and the subsequent outbreak of Aliens, at which point she becomes a {{Badass}} ActionGirl and repeatedly risks her life for all of them.

* Lexa from ''Series/{{The 100}}'' tries to be [[TheStoic stoic]] and ruthless, with no attachment to people as individuals, but only to her duty as the Grounders' Commander. However, as she works alongside Clarke, Lexa begins to develop feelings for her, enough to make her reconsider her belief that LoveIsAWeakness, and to trust Clarke even when her pragmatic logic says she shouldn't. [[spoiler:Subverted at first when, despite her feelings for Clarke, Lexa still abandons her in the middle of a crucial battle, seeing an easy victory for her side as more important than her personal attachment to an ally. Later on after reuniting with Clarke, Lexa makes it clear she greatly regrets abandoning her and then slowly but surely warms up to Clarke, even offering to implement more merciful and forgiving policies as Commander of the Grounders. Unfortunately Lexa ends up being shot in the very same episode where she fully melts.]]

** And, in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', when [[spoiler:Cortana sacrifices herself in the last level]], not even the Chief is immune from [[spoiler:yelling her name as he realises what she's about to do. Then again, between Johnson, Keyes and the countless Marines, Cortana was the last remaining entity willing to stick with him through thick and thin (albeit not having much choice in the matter).]]
