* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations 2'' brings us Ryōken Hōinbō[=/=]Sirhan Dogen, who, despite it not being a task to him and having no financial/personal incentive to him, [[spoiler:saved two children who'd been abandoned in a car that was freezing; had Dogen not done this, the children would've almost certainly perished.]] He also [[spoiler:only bullied and threatened the warden after finding out she made his godson suffer greatly]] and has a very loyal/heartfelt relationship with his dog, Anubis.

* Shelly de Killer from ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' is a professional hitman, who kills for clients. Although, he puts his client's safety and trust above everything else. One of the reasons why he leaves a calling card by his victims is for this specific reason, namely so that his client wouldn't be suspected. He also detests backstabbers and those who betray others, which doesn't end well for [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] when De Killer finds out he had gathered evidence to blackmail him. When [[spoiler: De Killer kidnapped Maya]] it's stated by his client that he did this on the client's orders. De Killer ''does'' however use ExactWords more than once [[spoiler: which is ultimately why Maya is merely starved rather than anything else]].

* Axel from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. He usually kills most of his enemies mercilessly, but often also spares the lives of even high priority targets, when he feels like it though usually it is out of curiosity to see how their stories turn out hence forth or even a whim, rather than truly mercy. However, he was [[AssassinOutClassin truly moved]] by Roxas, his last target, to the point he betrayed his organization and [[HeelFaceTurn turned against it]] and even sacrificed his life to destroy it.

A blend of TheAtoner and ProfessionalKiller. Sometimes is a ALighterShadeOfGrey. May result from falling InLoveWithTheMark. If this trope comes in the backstory variety, it's a SympatheticMurderBackstory. If his reluctance to kill the target ''doesn't'' cue a HeelFaceTurn, it might just be a case of [[NobleDemon evil having a lot of standards]].
