* Souichirou Kuzuki in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' at first just seems to be Rin's stoic, bespectacled homeroom and Ethics teacher. He was actually raised from birth to be a living weapon, even if he was only intended for a single assassination. After that, he sunk into the identity prepared for him, knowing he'd done something evil, but hopelessly perplexed as to how to atone. At the time of the Fifth Holy Grail War, he found an injured woman who begged for his help. He unhesitatingly agreed, becoming the Master of Caster, who he would develop feelings for.

* Mostly averted in ''Film/TheMechanic1972'', in which the sociopathy of the protagonist (played by Creator/CharlesBronson), and his young protege (Jan-Michael Vincent) are highlighted in several ways -- for instance Bronson realises Vincent has what it takes to be his understudy when the latter watches a former girlfriend who's slit her wrists to get his attention bleed over the course of several hours (she lives, but only because they give her the car keys so she can drive herself to the hospital). A more subtle scene is when Bronson is at the hospital, he walks past a young boy with an artificial leg without even a sympathetic glance.

Contrast this with the [[Film/TheMechanic2011 remake]] which plays the trope straight, especially the second movie.

* Train Hartnet of ''Anime/BlackCat'' grows into one of these in his OriginStory. Initially a cold-hearted sociopath who will kill anyone (even his own mission partners), he starts to grow a conscience when he freezes upon realizing one of his targets is holding a child. Meeting [[spoiler:Saya Minatsuki]] and slowly turning his life around as they became closer completes his HeelFaceTurn. He starts sparing his targets, which gets him on [[spoiler:Chronos']] shit list, and when [[spoiler:Creed murders Saya in front of him]], Train finally stops being an assassin altogether, although he'd still kill people in cold blood when given enough of a reason, even as a Sweeper.

* Agent 47 from the ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' series does not kill innocents unless absolutely required (eliminating witnesses or messengers), though this is primarily out of [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatism]]. However, he is at times willing to go out of his way to rescue innocent people such as Mei Ling even when it brings no actual benefit to him and in the second game attempted to be TheAtoner before events forced him to become an assassin once again.

It's all in-story, though, since actual games don't penalize you too much for murdering civilians (aside of lowering the final rating a bit), and ''Silent Assassin'' actually encourages you to kill people instead of merely sedating them, due to the way anaesthetic works (the incapacitated person eventually wakes up and raises alarm).

* Helena from ''Series/OrphanBlack'' was [[LaserGuidedTykebomb raised to assassinate clones]] by the Prolethean {{cult}} (who neglected to inform her that [[YouAreWhatYouHate she herself was a clone]]). Despite her ruthlessness, Helena is [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds at least somewhat sympathetic from the start]] due to her abusive upbringing, and she even [[spoiler:overcomes her indoctrination and joins the heroes]] during the second season.
