* ''The Art of War III'': over the course of the direct-to-video film, Neil Shaw (rapper Treach, stepping in for Wesley Snipes), a special operative working for the U.N., commits several massive screw-ups, including killing several North Korean rogue operatives he was supposed to be just watching[[note]](who later turn out to South Korean special agents[[/note]] and helping lead the BigBad right to the U.N. Secretary General, resulting in more high-profile death. After this collection of cock-ups that should've gotten him instantly fired (if his bosses felt like being kind), the Sec. General (who knew the whole story) personally tells Shaw "We need you." That entire clusterf*ck doesn't happen without Shaw's actions and she acts like he saved the day!

* Red easily forgives his former enemies in ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', though admittedly, most situations fall into the EnemyMine category. See that guy who tried to electrocute you to death (twice)? Say "Yo, what's up!" See the lady who stole your Eevee and tortured it? Take a bath with her! See the alien Pokemon that nearly killed you and your Pokemon? Oh, it was all a misunderstanding and I'm technically your ancestor! No prob!
* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, the most egregious example would have to come from the sixteenth film: [[spoiler:the Genesect Army destroy a city and threaten its power supply and inhabitants. By the end, no-one holds a grudge against them. Not even Red, who if anything is ''even guiltier than the other four'' as he routinely took control of them and made them do the bad things they did.]]
* Rampaging legendary Pokémon in general tend to be forgiven and befriended by the end of their respective movies or anime arcs, despite causing widespread destruction. Usually, it's waved away as them being territorial, acting according to their nature or reacting to mistreatment, despite the fact that most of them are literal living gods and shown to be smart enough to understand what they're doing.

* Done in ''ProjectARMS'' with pretty much all of Ryo's allies, since virtually all of them met via being sent by the Egrigori to kill him (or were trying to kill him to rebel against the Egrigori...or just trying to kill him). Hayato even comments on it after a group of Egrigori mutants kidnap them and try to kill them, only to be perfectly friendly after the battle is over. One of the mutants points out that all of them are on the Egrigori's hit-list, so they'd best put aside differences if they want to survive. It helps that most of those easily forgiven were also tricked, or horribly brainwashed since childhood and quite happy to give up their dangerous lives.

* When Jeffery from ''Literature/HollowPlaces'' gets a new job, Monica asks if he wants to get back together. Jeffery forgives Monica and accepts her offer without a second thought despite the way she ended their previous, ten year relationship the moment he began to face hard times. Austin questions this, but Jeffery brushes him off by simply saying she loves him and will always love him.

*** Despite supposedly being easily forgiven at the end of their respective episodes, this is ultimately [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in regards to Trixie and Starlight Glimmer. When Trixie [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E6NoSecondPrances shows up at Ponyville yet again]], Twilight immediately doesn't trust her, and thinks her new friendship with Starlight will ultimately be a [[ToxicFriendInfluence bad influence]] on the latter. Twilight also only trusts Starlight as long as she can [[ControlFreak control almost every aspect of Starlight's life]], and Starlight sees this lack of autonomy as not truly being given a second chance. Twilight eventually promises to do better when she sees how much her mistrust is [[ReformedButRejected hurting them]].

* [[DamselInDistress Pauline]] seems to have forgiven VideoGame/DonkeyKong entirely for kidnapping her and holding her hostage in the original game; she doesn't even mention it in more recent games where both appear.

** Trade Prince Gallywix used the Cataclysm to enslave a majority of the Bilgewater Cartel, losing control of them only due to an unlucky encounter with the Alliance. He then proceeded to steal critical resources from the other survivors, enslaving some of them and allying with pirates to kill those who resisted. When finally defeated by Thrall he was allowed to retain his position as leader of the Cartel when it joined the Horde.
