* 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.

* Toward the end of ''Film/TheWailing'', Il-gwang calls Jong-goo to tell him that he made a terrible mistake when identifying the source of the evil in Goksung: the japanese stranger is not an evil spirit but a shaman like Il-gwang who desperately tried to stop the WomanInWhite Moo-Myeong who was the evil one. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Il-gwang is lying]]; the Japanese man really is bad and [[EvilAllAlong so is he]].]]

* ''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."

* Early chapters of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' and to a lesser extent ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistBrotherhood'' suggest the Elrics' father, Van Hohenheim, may turn out to be an ArchnemesisDad, only for his apparent evil actions to be the result of an EvilTwin.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has an interesting example of this. [[spoiler: Itachi]] is by no means fooled into thinking he's working for the greater good or threatened into fighting for the [[BigBad big bads]]. He just wants to [[spoiler: keep his baby brother safe and the best place to do that would be by [[ReverseMole infiltrating the Akatsuki and watching Konoha]]]]. He also prevented [[WarIsHell another ninja war]] by [[spoiler: putting down the Uchiha rebellion,]] but by the time of the series he's almost certainly realized how much of that was Danzo manipulating him. [[spoiler: It's very likely, though not explicit, that he was informed that if he preserved secrecy by following the script, he'd be allowed to leave Sasuke alive, but if he forced them to assign it to some other Anbu, they'd kill him, too.]]

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', antagonists Eto ''and'' Kishou Arima both turn out to be good, if a bit [[WellIntentionedExtremist extreme]] in their methods. While seemingly legendary rivals, they were actually working together to bring down the GovernmentConspiracy and end the conflict between humans and ghouls through grooming Kaneki to become a HopeBringer. Both end up sacrificing themselves to save Kaneki, and set him on the path to bring about their revolution.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has an exceptionally sad example with [[spoiler: Homura Akemi. It turns out she's a time traveler who knows all about Kyubey's ulterior motives for empowering teenage girls, and her sole reason for living is to try to keep Madoka safe. Unfortunately, circumstances conspire to make this a seemingly impossible task, no matter how many times Homura goes back to try to fix things. Her stoic (and at times, callous) demeanor hides the fact that she's rapidly approaching her DespairEventHorizon after watching her best friend die ([[FateWorseThanDeath or worse]]) dozens of times.]]

* Unlike the blob monster that terrorized [[Creator/{{Toonami}} TOM and SARA]] in the [[WesternAnimation/TheIntruder first]] [[WesternAnimation/TheIntruderII two]] ''Intruder''s, the Sand Worm creatures in ''WesternAnimation/TheIntruderIII'' were really trying to help TOM and SARA [[spoiler: get off the planet they landed on and have operated out of since the second ''Intruder'', as the planet was dying.]]

* [[spoiler: The Book of Darkness]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' was not only good all along but was actually the biggest victim in the entire season, possibly the entire franchise. All the problems they end up causing were because of bad programming rather than malice.
