* The Ruby-Spears cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Fangface}}'' had a friendly (and very goofy) werewolf, whose transformations seemed more or less psychosomatic (often triggered by ''pictures'' of the full moon or sun). This is a Ruby-Spears example of RuleOfFunny, as the supporting cast all seemed [[GenreSavvy to have supplies of durable picture-postcards of the full moon or sun in their back pockets]], and relevant images often cropped up in the story whenever the script started to lag.

* The Nordic Coven in ''Film/UnderworldBloodWars''. While most vampires in the series can be described as cold, distant and detached including the main heroine [[AntiHero Selene]], the Nordic vampires are characterized as peaceful and friendly, living distantly from from the civilization (and therefore not being a threat to mankind), and yet grant sanctuary to outsiders without problem. Their leader [[CoolOldGuy Vidar]] and his daughter [[NiceGirl Lena]] are also very nice in person.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' centers around a group of Ghouls with this attitude taking in the protagonist after he's turned into a HalfHumanHybrid. These Ghouls attempt to live peacefully, avoiding direct conflict with humans and satisfying their HorrorHunger through scavenging victims of suicide or other violence. Their base of operations is a coffee shop that doubles as a Ghoul soup kitchen, providing meat to Ghouls unwilling or unable to hunt. Unfortunately, [[TheHunter CCG]] doesn't acknowledge or particularly care that such peaceful Ghouls exist, as evidenced by Touka's backstory. Her father was [[RedBaron nicknamed]] the "Corpse Collector" because he exclusively scavenged rather than hurt anyone, but was [[VanHelsingHateCrimes hunted down]] anyway. [[{{Deconstruction}} Afterwards]], news about his true nature caused the neighbors that had adored him for his kindness to label him a monster and gossip that he was only pretending to be kind while plotting to kill them all. [[HumansAreBastards They]] immediately turned on his two young children, and handed them over to authorities to be killed.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', Velvet Velour is either one of these or very, very good at pretending to. She gives you a couple of quests to preserve the {{Masquerade}}, and makes it very clear she doesn't want innocents killed on her account. She also appears to feel guilt about the people who do have to die to uphold it (one being [[TheHunter a vampire hunter]] who wanted to kill her and the other a traitorous clanless who was trying to leak info on vampiric society to a human).

* [[spoiler: Regis]] Regis from ''TheWitcher''. ''Franchise/TheWitcher''. He's a [[spoiler: former blood addict (OurVampiresAreDifferent)]] higher vampire, and generally in his younger days he was a nice guy.hellion among vampires, becoming thoroughly addicted to the intoxicating taste of blood. But after one exceedingly drunken night of blood-imbibing debauchery that ended with him getting a little bit dismembered and staked (turns out it takes way more than that to kill a true higher vampire), he sobered up once he finished regenerating, swore off blood, and because an herbalist and healer. He eventually joins Geralt's eclectic group on their quest to save Ciri, where his various vampiric powers, such as flight, invisibility, and immunity to fire made him an invaluable ally.

* Requiem in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' stands out from the rest of other vampires and other denizens of Résurrection, who are [[AlwaysChaoticEvil all psychotic degenerates of varying degrees]] for being the only one who retains a conscience and being capable of genuine love. He is actually something of a freak among them for displaying qualities such as honor and chivalry. With that said, he is, at really best an AntiHero, who did a lot of reprehensible things in life, which admittedly he genuinely regrets, but its ultimately what damned him to Hell in the first place.
