** A fairly straight forward example is [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Conner McKnight]], a star soccer player at Reefside High. While he starts off with an edge, he quickly bonds with [[BlackAndNerdy Ethan]] and [[IdolSinger Kira]], and he grows kinder over time. By the halfway point he's firmly this trope.

* From ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' we have Roy Bromwell: star quarterback of Pacific High. In the first game, he was a JerkWithAHeartOfGold bordering on JerkAss and with a ''serious'' hate fore Japanese people [[spoiler: due to his grandfather's bad experiences in WorldWarTwo]]. He loses much of his jerkassery in the sequel, recognizes it was wrong from him to hate on others, and becomes an all around nice guy.

* ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie'': While Jake is certainly the BigManOnCampus, he's really not a bad guy. Spoofed however when he tries to be the "sensitive guy" by protecting his LoveInterest's little brother from being bullied, only to receive an accidental punch to the face in return. Jake kicks the shit out of him in response.

** James Potter had elements of this and of JerkJock (however, beyond his complex and mutual hatred with Severus Snape, his only jerk qualities were being a show-off and hot-headed.) After he 'deflates his head,' he is much more readily seen as one. Subverted in that we only hear about him from his friends and archenemy Snape.

When he does calm down, she goes from his friends seemingly not liking him to dating him and archenemy Snape.marrying him soon out of school. This prompts some to assume Lily's dislike was actually her being a form of Tsundere.]]

* Larry the Lobster is easily the strongest character in ''WesternAnimaton/SpongeBobSquarePants'' but he's also the friendliest after Spongebob himself. However, in a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, the season one episode "Ripped Pants" features a song with lyrics about how "big Larry came around just to put [Spongebob] down. This is especially odd because even in this episode, Larry is portrayed as friendly.

* "Moose" Mason from ''Franchise/ArchieComics''. Originally he was batshit insane and was universally feared by the entire school (even some ''teachers'') since he would savagely beat anyone who even looked in Midge's general direction. He's mellowed considerably as the [[CharacterizationMarchesOn comics moved on]], so long as no one is [[CrazyJealousGuy trying to steal his girl]].
