* This was the plot of an issue of ''PetShopOfHorrors'': in 'Duty,' a teenage boy belonging to an order of child assassins named 'Scorpio's Children' takes cover at D's pet shop. It is up to Count D to try to defuse him, which he does with the aid of an illusory confrontation with the boy's estranged mother. It succeeds, although D being D, he was more interested in [[FluffyTamer the eponymous scorpion]] than in [[MisanthropeSupreme the child.]]

He seems to have some success with befriending her, and even caused her to behave in a nonviolent fashion towards him. And then [[spoiler:(s)he [[DownerEnding gets shot]].]]



** To be fair, Rock did have some success with befriending Gretel, and even caused her to behave in a nonviolent fashion towards him. Maybe if he'd just had more time...

* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' has Danny telling his OppositeSexClone that Vlad is merely using her as a tool instead of the daughter she thinks she is to him. She obviously doesn't believe this and spends most of the episode in deep denial, attacking him and the like to prove otherwise. Since Vlad is the series' BigBad, Danny is right. Danielle manages to have a change of heart as a result and worked alongside him.

* In the second season of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', [[spoiler: Lelouch tries to do this for his companion Rolo, but hardly with the best intentions, by using their memories from the past year to appeal to his "brotherhood".]] It works, and he gets a loyal pawn, but eventually this goes horrifically wrong [[spoiler: when said pawn becomes a murderously jealous {{Yandere}}...]]
** He didn't try to get rid of the murderous tendencies at all. He just tried to [[spoiler: turn him into [[TheDragon a personal Tykebomb for him instead of V.V]], with full intent of [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness offing him when he no longer needed him]].]] Unfortunately all this did was show that an unstable TykeBomb is not someone you want on your side if you actually have people other than yourself that you care about.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', we learn that ''YggdraUnion'''s HeroAntagonist Gulcasa was technically ''born'' one of these--his mother attempted to defuse him by forcibly sealing his abilities and then [[ParentalAbandonment leaving him]] to go FindTheCure. His father, resenting him for the loss of his wife, started abusing him, and any good the seal did was undone posthaste. [[AllThereInTheManual According to]] WordOfGod, the young Gulcasa was a bitter and violent EmptyShell until Siskier and Jenon befriended him and helped him learn to be a normal little kid again.
* In ''[[FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Shin Monsho no Nazo]]'', the [[HelloInsertNameHere avatar]] does this for [[spoiler:Eine aka Katarina]].

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: Subverted with Post-Crisis Kara Zor-El. An early story stated that her father trained her to be a weapon, and Superman -with aid of Batman and Franchise/WonderWoman- took her in and acted this way toward her. However her abusive father was eventually retconned as a hallucination caused by Kryptonite poisoning when the real Zor-El showed up and turned out to be a pretty nice guy.
