* Paine from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' is to some degree a female version of Squall. She's been reserved ever since [[spoiler:the horrific event in which she was split from her Crimson Squad teammates Nooj, Gippal and Baralai after the investigation of the Den of Woe.]] The [[spoiler:defeat of Sin at the end of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'']] has led Rikku to fully unleash the bubbly side of her personality, and Rikku's influence has largely led Yuna to embrace this as well. Throughout the game, they slowly begin to draw Paine out more and more.

* ''Manga/KagerouDays'': [[GenkiGirl Ene]]'s teasing and pranking of [[Hikkikomori Shintaro]] is an attempt to invoke this trope and help Shintaro get over his apathy towards the world. Shintaro's involvement with the quirky members of the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Mekakushi-dan]] does lead to him becoming a more caring, sociable person while also driving him up the wall.[[/folder]]

* ''Manga/KagerouDays'': Implied to be the reason why Ene forces Shintaro to join the Mekakushi-Dan. Said friends include a {{Bokukko}}, a FriendToAllLivingThings, a ConsummateLiar, a fellow {{Hikikomori}}-turned gang member and [[CuteClumsyGirl his little sister]]. [[MagicalEye Oh, and they've all got super powers.]] Notably, [[InsufferableGenius Shintaro himself was already quite eccentric]]; his only problem being that he's a [[{{Hikikomori}} shut-in]], and it's doing nothing for his mental health.

* Jeff Winger in ''Series/{{Community}}'' grows (slowly and with much backsliding) from {{Jerkass}} to JerkWithAHeartOfGold when forced to interact with his unwanted study group. See especially the episode "Paradigms of Human Memory."
** Deconstructed in "Studies of Advanced Movement", when Annie -- a similarly stuffy and uptight character (while hardly the OnlySaneMan) -- is moving in with Troy and Abed, the show's primary source of wacky hijinks, and is advised to be flexible with them. After an increasingly trying and stressful first day of putting up with their antics, however, she snaps and delivers an angry lecture about how unfair it is that she always has to be the one to adapt to their personality quirks while they seem to show no intention of attempting to accommodate her.

They reach a compromise, and in a later episode Troy mentions that part of the reason they wanted her to move in was so that she would tone them down. Of course, the reason Troy brings this up is because [[ItMakesSenseInContext Annie has accidentally turned Abed into Batman]], so it's kind of a mixed bag.

* Squall in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' is a classic example. He's a very down to earth [=SeeD=] member who likes to focus on the task at hand. Unfortunately for him he's forced into dancing at a graduation ball by a ManicPixieDreamGirl. And things just keep getting stranger from there.
** This is brought up again in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', where he keeps running into [[FunPersonified Bartz]] and [[{{Keet}} Zidane]] and keeps getting caught up in their own quest to find the crystals.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' has a relatively mild version with Ruby; aside from Dillon's clearly conscious attempts to activate the GayBestFriend and ManicPixieDreamGirl tropes, Zii talks her out of some of her repression, Angel expands her horizons a little, and Ramona reassures her that sex needn't be terrifying.

* Explicit in the anime version of ''Manga/HauntedJunction'': Haruto says IJustWantToBeNormal, but is constantly dragged into supernatural mayhem. In the final episode it's shown that the school spirits have been tormenting him specifically to avert a BadFuture in which not only they're gone he lives a "normal life" but never emotionally connects with anyone including his future wife and child. Which seems to lead into a happy ending...except that said PreachersKid was made so miserable by the constant torment that he voluntarily participated in a plan to kill or imprison all the school spirits; and there's no indication that things are going to get better for him.
** The manga, however, more or less averts this. Haruto is still not completely happy in the council, but is quite more resilient and his relationship with the ghosts is more smooth.
