* When DaffyDuck hears that a $5000 reward is posted for the recovery of the Tazmanian Devil to the zoo ("Ducking The Devil"), he assures us "I may be a coward, but I'm a greeeeeeeedy little coward!"

* Pterano from ''TheLandBeforeTime VII: The Stone of Cold Fire''. He's not above kidnapping, but he does make a point to strike his own henchmen to punish them for [[EvenEvilHasStandards two things he considers intolerable]]: violence and asking redundant questions (though the latter is disproportionate on his part).

and his brother, brother Wrestling/{{Kane}}, when they're in a {{Face}} role. Treated more as a {{Face}}.force of nature than an actual wrestler or superstar, Taker could hit a [[FinishingMove Tombstone Piledriver]] on anyone and have the crowd cheer for him. Once, Taker kidnapped perpetual-face manager Teddy Long, and Taker still got cheered. Kane, meanwhile, is pretty much always AxCrazy; he just targets faces or heels depending on his current alignment.

** Beerus the Destroyer is this, though. Especially in ''Battle of Gods'' movie. He can be quite petty, mean, very short-tempered and blows planets, but it's his job, and he can be nice and polite too, also always keeping his word (and using LoopholeAbuse when he refused to destroy the Earth) Just don't piss him off...

* [[spoiler:Asch the Bloody]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''.
** To the contrary: Asch is not insisting that he's evil while acting good: he's insisting that he's the good [[spoiler:twin]] while acting like the evil one. Asch has a large number of KickTheDog moments, such as probably assisting with the slaughter of the crew of the Tartarus, [[spoiler:possessing Luke's body and forcing it to attack Tear while Luke watches in horror, and, while Luke is trapped in his body, threatening to kill Luke's friends if Luke doesn't stop being concerned about Asch's welfare, in sharp contrast to Asch's behavior.]] Asch even says at one point that his (debatable) HeelFaceTurn is not motivated by disgust with [[spoiler:Van's intention to kill all the people of Auldrant, but the fact that he intends to replace them]] with [[FantasticRacism replicas]]. If it weren't for Asch's backstory and RedemptionEqualsDeath...It's not that Asch is insisting that he's evil, it's that he fails at being a good guy, as shown by [[spoiler:his inability to reconnect with Natalia: even the PowerOfLove can't make him stop being a jerk.]]
** The character who best fits the trope is actually a protagonist, [[ColonelBadass Jade]] [[MadScientist Balfour]]. Despite being described by everyone, including himself, as a monster who [[KickTheDog experimented on]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute harmless monsters]], he's one of only two characters in the game who takes responsibility for his actions. While constantly hinting that he's poisoned the party's food and so on, on several occasions, he reveals real concern for Luke, and the culmination of his character development hinges around [[spoiler:Luke's inevitable death and the multitude of potential causes]], demonstrating real concern for another human being.

* ''Podcast/KakosIndustries" has VillainProtagonist and CardCarryingVillain Corin Deeth III normally fall into this. He's in charge of one of the biggest [[EvilInc Evil cooperations in the world,]] but is still [[BenevolantBoss a fairly lenient boss]] who honestly cares about his closer companions and has some sense of moral compass, making him far less ruthless than his competitors. He does have the occasional violent outburst and some severe cases LackOfEmpathy at his worst, but is all around a pretty decent person.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji is a manipulative asshole, but he has standards and limits. Usually he doesn't mind using, manipulating and backstabbing people, but he doesn't seek to destroy someone who hasn't done anything to him, and he refuses to betray his family and friends.
