** Also, Klump in "Klump's Lumps"; when allowed to stay with the apes after being fired by King K.Rool, He proves to be just as big a bungler when it comes to doing them good as he was helping K.Rool's schemes.

* 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.]]

Allowing them entry into a SuperHero organization, etc. could 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.

* ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} in general. They are supposed to be a super police force to respond yo super human threats, but they regularly screw up, or make things worse, or were the cause of it from the beginning.

In a very real sense, the entire point of the first trilogy is the psychological redemption of an utterly broken man into someone who can live with himself -- the first book setting him up as someone the audience very likely hates as a reflection of how badly he already hates ''himself''. And since the series very strongly straddles the line between reality and psychological allegory (and occasionally argues that both answers are valid), by definition saving the Land saves his own soul -- ''and vice-versa''.\\\

* Coop of ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR''. He's a good guy, and far from incompetent (but still within view of it), he's just a DestructiveSavior to the nth degree. One episode dealt with some alien superheroes mistaking him for an outright villain, and their [[OmnicidalManiac nemesis]] thinking he was trying to pull an EvilerThanThou.

* Jinx in ''Series/TeenTitans'' to an extent. Part of why she became a villain in the first place was because her power to screw everything up corresponded the most with villainy. By series' end, she pulls a HeelFaceTurn and gets it mostly right this time (only to go back to being evil in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'; though, she did have a fling with Cyborg for a while).

* This is why, in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', Jacob is considered inferior to Edward. Jacob is ostensibly nicer, shares more of Bella's interests, lacks Edward's self-loathing issues, and seems like a lot more fun -- but unlike Edward he isn't particularly ashamed of his monster side (Edward only being ashamed of it inasmuch as it presents a danger to his girlfriend, though), and has extreme mood swings in which he could do Bella serious harm (wheras Edward has much better self-control). At one point, he even decides to take revenge for Bella [[DeathByChildbirth dying in childbirth]] by [[MoralEventHorizon murdering her baby]], because it killed her.

* [[spoiler:Itachi]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' might not be what he appeared to be at the outset, but there's still the fact calling him "one of the good guys" is quite a stretch. [[spoiler: While Itachi killed the Uchiha family to prevent a devastating civil war (although wholesale genocide as a peacekeeping measure is rather fucked up, too) rather than simply as a way to test his own powers, he made some rather ''complicated'' decisions regarding sparing his little brother Sasuke; rather than simply kill him, Itachi decided to spare his life and try and make Sasuke hate him enough that he could commit SuicideByCop later to turn Sasuke into a hero and let him live free of the shadow-conflict that consumed their family. Unfortunately, he did this by inflicting '''horrific''' MindRape upon Sasuke on the night of the massacre and later on, emotionally crippling Sasuke for the rest of his life, and Itachi's eventual suicide at Sasuke's hands was implied to be just as much for Konoha's sake and his own self-loathing as it was out of any affection for Sasuke. Unsurprisingly, a lifetime conditioned into obsessive hatred for his brother to the exclusion of all else means Sasuke goes completely batshit insane once Itachi's gone and Madara gives him a slanted account of Itachi's life, but Itachi turns out to have had a plan for this; using Sasuke's erstwhile best friend Naruto as the delivery system, if Sasuke failed to become the hero Itachi wanted him to be, Itachi left behind a posthumous genjutsu that would ''brainwash'' Sasuke into protecting Konoha with his dead best friend's mind-controlling eye.]] While he is depicted as a man who made many sacrifices and tough choices, [[spoiler: Itachi]] is still dangerously close to just being a ManipulativeBastard with an OmniscientMoralityLicence.

* KnightTemplar: Has a vision of "Good" that is fanatical and not compatible with actual good guys. Unlikely to want to be with the good guys unless it is as a PoisonousFriend.
