* ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'': In the episodes "Get a Life, Don't Save One!" and "Bluster the Benevolent," [[RichBitch Bluster Kong]] tries to legitimately help DK and his fellow apes, but his attempts are so are so destructive (not to mention annoying and overblown) that WeWantOurJerkBack ensues. In one episode, Bluster successfully steals the [[MacGuffin Crystal Coconut]] and loses it. He then proceeds to work against DK and Diddy to retrieve it because he wants to be the hero, but just hands it over when asked by Klump out of fear. When it comes down to it, Bluster's selfishness and cowardice overpower any good he's attempting to do.

* The HeroWithAnFInGood has redeeming qualities that make part of him want to be a hero out of a desire to do good or the right thing, in other words a JerkWithAHeartOfGold rather than a {{Jerkass}}. They may also be close to a JerkassWoobie.

* The HeroWithAnFInGood tends to get themselves kicked out of the Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, [[Franchise/StarWars Rebel Alliance]], etc. for 'minor' offenses (theft, destruction of property, etc.).

* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: both are genuinely well-intentioned characters with a negative reputation, but only the HeroWithAnFInGood deserves it.
* DesignatedHero: both want to be seen as the IdealHero, but while the HeroWithAnFInGood honestly tries and fails, the DesignatedHero does not care and still gets away with their laziness. Furthermore, the DesignatedHero's flaws are obvious only to the audience, whereas the HeroWithAnFInGood's flaws are noticed by the other characters. The former character type is subjective, while the latter character type is objective.

* MrViceGuy: both are hard to approach at first because of being flawed, yet have good hearts. Unlike the MrViceGuy, however, the HeroWithAnFInGood is never excused for their flaws as they directly interfere with their status as a hero.
* NobleDemon: while the NobleDemon cultivates their negative reputation, the HeroWithAnFInGood dislikes their negative reputation. However, if the former character type does a HeelFaceTurn and realizes they do not know a thing about being a hero, they can become the latter character type.
* PunchClockVillain: neither character type is inherently malevolent; villainy is just a job. However, the HeroWithAnFInGood usually hates this job, and does it because it is the only one that sufficiently pays the bills.
* VillainBallMagnet: it isn't the universe that paints the HeroWithAnFInGood as a villain, it is their own flaws.

Allowing them entry into a SuperHero organization, etc. may cause serious problems for the group's reputation, cohesiveness, etc., so instead they sometimes become {{Flanderized}} into a recurring IneffectualSympatheticVillain who the heroes can still count on when the BigBad crosses the MoralEventHorizon, because EveryoneHasStandards.

Like the MinionWithAnFInEvil, the Hero With an F in Good most of the time is basically a nice person deep down, but while the Minion with an F in Evil became a PunchClockVillain because EvilIsCool, but his PetTheDog personality [[SpannerInTheWorks foils]] his bosses' plans, this character sometimes daydreams of becoming one of TheHero's TrueCompanions, or being the hero by himself, but serious character flaws make it a poor career goal. He doesn't have a problem with doing heroic things, but he does have trouble when it comes to other aspects of being good.

* TanteiOperaMilkyHolmes: Also known as "Magical Policegirls Who Have An English Detective Motif But Could Not Sleuth Their Way Out Of An Unlocked Room", the ONLY thing competent about these magical girls is their exceptional talent in magic artes. The anime explores their lives during a period when they lose their powers - absolute FAILURES in basic detective work, broke and living in their mom's attic, and constantly making friends with celebrity criminals because they outright paste the paper-thin disguises if the villains don't have one. Powers or not, they are an utter disgrace to the good name of legendary detectives everywhere.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Anakin Skywalker in the prequel trilogy. He's brave and willing to risk himself for others, wants to do what's right, joins the foremost good guy organization... But he's impatient, uncontrolled, unable to accept his place and constantly tempted to just go ahead and (to sum up all the various temptations) do whatever he damn well feels like at the moment. When he does, it ends badly for everyone. After that he becomes an entirely different character who gets an A in Evil easily. Until the end of ''Return of the Jedi'', that is.



* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'': For awhile, Artemis's HeelFaceTurn was impeded by his love of [[ThePlan devious plans]], until he realized that a {{Chessmaster}} doesn't have to be a villain.

* Skitter of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' is a genuinely good and moral person, who wants to be a superhero, but, frankly, [[BadPowersGoodPeople her powers]](bug control) make "heroic" combat extremely counter-intuitive for her, and she finds that she's ''incredibly'' effective as a supervillain. She continues to try to help people, but as she steadily grows more brutal and gets into more frequent altercations with the heroes, she realizes that she's better off trying to do good by [[EvilPaysBetter putting the massive amounts of money she makes as a supervillain]] to work [[AHeroToHisHometown helping fix up her hometown.]]

* ''Literature/TheLostStars'', a spinoff of ''Liiterature/TheLostFleet'' series, gives us "Planetary CEO" turned President Gwen Iceni of the Midway star system. She led a successful coup d'etat against the brutally repressive [[OneNationUnderCopyright corporatist]] oligarchy known as the Syndicate Worlds in the first chapter of Volume 1, and then spent the rest of the book trying very hard to stop herself behaving like a brutally repressive oligarch out of sheer force of habit, and not always succeeding.

* Captain Courage, of the WhateleyUniverse. He tries to be a hero, but he has so many illegitimate children and paternity suits that there are more wanted posters out for him than for most supervillains. In most places, he's now known as Captain Condom instead of his real codename.

* Katsuki Bakugou from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', was gifted with a [[SuperPowerLottery powerful quirk]], and has the ambition to become one of the greatest heroes, however he also has plenty of {{Jerkass}} tendencies that leave many wondering if he is fit to be a hero. [[spoiler: This eventually leads to him being kidnapped by the villain alliance because they think being a villain would fit him better.]]
