* A Paragon Commander Shepard has this effect on [[AxCrazy Jack]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. She has way too many issues for you to deal with all of them in the game's time-frame, but you can at least convince her there are ways of solving problems besides shooting people.

She has way too many issues for you to deal with all of them in the game's time-frame, but you can at least convince her there are ways of solving problems besides shooting people. Which is why you get to keep it up in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', where she has mellowed out and is much more rounded as a person. This is to the extent that she has an effective family in her biotic students, teenagers that [[MamaBear she would do anything to protect]].
** Can be {{Averted}} in the third game if you [[spoiler: ignore the Grissom Academy mission past a certain point: the mission will be considered failed, the station is taken over by Cerberus and Jack is captured, where she is brainwashed and becomes an EliteMook [[TearJerker in the penultimate level of the game]]]].

* The Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' defuses [[spoiler:Melody Pond]] in ''Let's Go Kill Hitler''. Given that ''Doctor Who'' is a show with TimeTravel as its core premise, the Doctor already knows where [[spoiler:Melody's]] life ends up, while [[spoiler:Melody]] [[HaveWeMetYet hasn't yet met the Doctor face-to-face]].

* In ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'', one of the main goals of Shinji is undoing the damaged inflicted upon Rei and Asuka’s psyches by NERV. So he spends a long while showing Rei that she’s an individual unique and proving Asuka that piloting Eva isn’t everything that she has.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': Shinji showed Asuka that she didn’t need to be an Eva pilot to be special, valued or loved. By the time she’s unable to synch with her Eva, she doesn’t care for it anymore because Shinji loves her [[spoiler:and she has super-powers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Asuka was trained by NERV since she was four to be a mecha pilot, ignoring that she was considered an easily replaceable pawn until she was discarded and abandoned. Shinji spent a long time trying to fix the damage done to her mind and convincing her that he cared about her and would not leave her.

* In ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', [[ChildSoldiers Shinji and Asuka]] defused each other [[AfterTheEnd after Third Impact]], helping mutually with their psychological issues. When they went back to the past, defusing Rei was one of their main goals. Thanks to them [[spoiler:-and mainly Aki-]] Rei managed to reclaim her lost humanity.

*** Pain implies that he did not fully trust Jiraiya when he was watching over him and his friends, making this something of a case of the bomb only seemingly being defused.
*** Well, on the one hand, he ''wasn't'' a {{Tykebomb}}, he was a scared little kid with some powerful buried powers. Jiraiya trained him into a {{tykebomb}} in hopes that being a ninja would keep him alive--wasn't particularly worried about who ''Nagato'' might hurt, 'cause he was a good kid who loved his friends. And it was all fine, and Akatsuki was spreading peace and order and possibly even sunshine, though it was Rain country so probably not...and then Danzou and Hanzou got together and offed his leader slash MoralityPet slash best friend slash RestrainingBolt in the most traumatic way possible. Nice job there.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': After losing her parents and becoming a NERV's puppet, Asuka met a decent foster mother who defused her and helped her to become a better person. Several years later she helped Shinji to find a better reason to keep living. At the same time, Rei's friends tried to defuse her, but they weren't quite successful.

* Mary in ''Literature/{{Twig}}'' was grown to be a single-use assassination weapon against the parents of the original Mary. When the Lambs encounter her, however, Sylvester observes that she's incredibly lonely due to a lack of affection from her creator and fellow assassins and offers her a place with them, and as a team effort the other Lambs work to make sure she's comfortable and happy working with them. She still kills people, but since she's no longer treated as a disposable weapon she's largely content and often enjoys the challenge of figuring out how to both get the job done ''and'' not die in the process.

Added DiffLines:

* Two examples in ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Shinji realized early on that Gendo had raised Rei to be his puppet because she played a crucial role in his father's plans, so he worked hard to break her out of that mindset and earn her loyalty.
** After meeting Asuka, he did the same thing to her.

** [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]] attempts this with both Four Murasame and Rosamia Badam, even playing along with the latter's delusion that he's her elder brother in an attempt to help her. [[spoiler:Tragically, both of them get killed in battle before he's successful, one by Kamille himself, no less.]]
** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Judau Ashta]] is more successful: Elpeo Ple settles into a fairly stable brother-sister relationship with him, and even Ple-Two seems headed in this direction by the end. [[spoiler:Both of them still die... both times, in protecting him from danger.]]
** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Banagher Links]] tries to talk [[spoiler:Loni out of levelling Torrington with her mobile armour. He ''nearly'' succeeds, coaxing Loni out of her cockpit, only for her to witness her last family member dying at the hands of the Federation, and driving her back into her rampage in despair.]] There's also an example in the backstory - [[spoiler:Banagher is a defused TykeBomb himself]].

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' had several characters make the attempt, hindered by [[DysfunctionJunction their own state of massive emotional trauma.]] Ironically, the most dangerous of the Tykebombs turns out not to be the HalfHumanHybrid, [[spoiler: Rei]], but one of the humans. [[spoiler: Shinji, the main character, whom Rei herself tries to defuse. The effects are...[[GainaxEnding mixed]].]] In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', however, it looks as if the three lead Tykebombs are gradually beginning to defuse each other, though the latter half of 2.0 sure didn't help.
** In fact, Shinji and Rei appear to have defused each other while Asuka defused herself with help from others, Shinji and Rei in particular.

** When Shinji and Asuka realize that Gendo has raised Rei as his obedient puppet, they decide to befriend her and cut her strings because they really hate Gendo and they really care about Rei.
** Shinji and Asuka to each other. After realizing that they are traumatized orphans and child soldiers during their mutual love confession, they start to lean on each other, improving their mental instability.
