** Lena Luthor is initially introduced as a possible new villain, and the first half of Season 2 is spent asking "is she or isn't she?". By the second half of Season 2 it's firmly established that she was indeed not only good all along, but is well on the way to becoming Kara's best friend.

Compare ReverseMole and MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold. Contrast EvilAllAlong. This trope should not be confused with NotAlwaysEvil, which used to be called GoodAllAlong. NotAlwaysEvil is when mooks or a race thought to be AlwaysChaoticEvil turn out to have a few good apples or were never truly bad to begin with. The biggest difference between these tropes is that GoodAllAlong applies to characters, while AlwaysChaoticEvil applies to entire races. Not to be confused with a HeelFaceTurn, in which the previously evil character decides to become good - here, the character was pretending to be evil but was, as the name implies, good all along.

** [[spoiler:Severus Snape]] is revealed to be good all along '''twice'''. Turns out everything he did in the books, he did while working for Dumbledore and following his orders, which includes [[spoiler:''killing'' Dumbledore]], and all in the name of [[spoiler: his unrequited love for Harry's mother, Lily, and the [[TheAtoner guilt]] he feels over his role in her death.]]

* Edgar from the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' series. A fairy prince with a distressing tendency to get kidnapped and transmogrified, we first see him as the ugly, green, hunchbacked "son" of wicked fairy Lolotte. Granted, he had a massive crush on Rosella, but Rosella certainly couldn't return it under the circumstances, as she thought he was loyal to Lolotte. But when he [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy gives her the key to escape instead of forcing her to marry him]], Rosella gets her chance to defeat Lolotte, save Genesta's life, and free Edgar. Genesta transforms Edgar back to his ''true'' form as a handsome fairy prince, and the two go their separate ways...until the seventh game, when Edgar's [[EvilUncle nasty aunt]] decides to kidnap, brainwash, and transmogrify him ''again.'' He kidnaps Rosella, ostensibly to pull a AndNowYouMustMarryMe, but the more he sees of her, the more confused he becomes, trying to stall and question his aunt's plan, buying time until Rosella and Valanice put a stop to it.

* The primary antagonist of ''VideoGame/MegaManIV'' is Dr. Cossack, a Russian scientist who sent eight of his robots to attack Mega Man to prove his genius.

*** It turns out that [[spoiler:Springtrap AKA Purple Guy]] is this too. The final cutscene for the "Golden Freddy" mode in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'' reveals that he's really [[spoiler:Michael Afton, son of William Afton (the actual murderer)]]. All he wanted was to [[spoiler:free his sister and the Missing Children from their mechanical tombs]] and ended up paying for it by [[spoiler:being gutted alive causing his skin to rot into a purple color and being trapped for 30 years in a Spring Bonnie suit]]. All the time players thought he was trying to kill them? It was actually him begging for help.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Ichigo's SuperpoweredEvilSide turned out to not be evil at all, merely overprotective. It turns out the "Inner Hollow" was Ichigo's true Zanpakuto spirit all along, one that was formed with the remnants of a Hollow as its base. "Inner Hollow" only ever wanted to make Ichigo stronger and keep him safe.

* In ''[[Film/TheMightyDucks D3: The Mighty Ducks]]'' new coach Ted Orion rejects the Ducks' view of having fun, changes them from the Ducks to the freshman Warriors, strips Charlie Conway of his rank as team captain, and even goes as far as saying "The Ducks are dead!" The truth is he was trying to teach them "two-way hockey," master the art of defense, and mature their hockey playing. Then, he would give back their Duck jerseys. Charlie, combined with adolescence pains and resentment for Bombay "abandoning" them, misunderstood greatly and alienated himself from his friends. Then, Bombay revealed that Orion was on their side all along and that he told Orion how great Charlie really was. Orion proved all this when he accepted Charlie's return, and refused to let the Eden Hall Academy board withdraw their scholarships for poor performance, threatening to resign if they are expelled. Good thing Bombay was there to help. And not only did Orion return the team the Duck jerseys, but he also reinstated Charlie as team captain in the J.V.-Varsity Showdown.

* In ''Film/TheHatefulEight'' former southern marauder Chris Mannix tries to convince his fellow lodgers he's the new sheriff in a local town, but is unable to prove it. As it turns out, he's one of the few characters on the side of the law, and one of the few completely honest about their past.

* ''Series/{{Marchlands}}'' spends four episodes playing on classic expectations of a poltergeist, but the final episode reveals that the ghost never actually tries to harm anyone--she is only trying to expose the mysterious circumstances of her death, and on one occasion she even saves an epileptic boy from drowning in a bathtub. This is made even clearer at the end, when even the resident AgentScully, Amy's mother, admits, "I think Alice was really a good girl all along."
