* Courtney in the fifth season ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is initially in the Heroic Hamsters but is transferred to the Villainous Vultures in the third episode. She protests and question why she is transferred, unaware that throughout the three episodes she is pretty much a villain; her overall bossiness, planning to eliminate Zoey behind her back and using an injured Sam as a human shield. In fact, throughout the series, Courtney is the only antagonists (or antagonistic character like Duncan and Eva) who is oblivious that she is a jerk towards everyone and still thinks everyone loves her.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} character Self/Demonstrating/{{Bizarro}} often has this problem, depending on which version you're dealing with. Often, he'll try to do good but have no concept of how destructive his own strength is and cause more collateral damage than help, or he'll actively blow things up because his "save/destroy" wires are crossed.

* Billy from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has his moments of this. For example, he constantly beats on his "son" Jeff even though the latter tries to be a good "son" to him. But this is only more due to Billy's severe arachnophobia (and the fact that he's [[TheDitz incredibly stupid]]) rather than anything truly malicious towards said spider.

* Jellal from ''Manga/FairyTail'', in the arc where he appears. He seems to genuinely believe that he's doing the right thing, but what he's trying to do is bring the story's BiggerBad back from the dead. That he kills one of his former friends, enslaves hundreds (albeit without them realizing this) and psychologically tortures his love interest before trying to use her as a sacrifice don't clue him in to the fact that he's on the wrong side. It does help that he was [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]] at the time, but later chapters have painted this less as total control and more as giving him the motive and letting him handle the rest.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Majin Buu's first form, [[FanNickname Fat Buu]], doesn't really know that killing millions of people is ''wrong''. He even turns an old man into milk as a gift for a small child because the child complimented him. Mr. Satan actually turns him into a good guy temporarily just by explaining to him that it's bad to kill people. Then, just as it looks like the FakeUltimateHero has actually saved the world, someone shoots Mr. Satan and his pet dog. [[EnemyWithout Buu doesn't take it well]]. Justified because Bibidi (Babidi's father) ''made'' him to destroy, and that's all anyone ever ordered him to do. Mr. Satan was the only one that even took the approach to explain it to him, after Bibidi and Babidi were both dead. But it turns out this was basically a ThanatosGambit made by the previous Guardian of the entire Universe (who looked like a PaletteSwap of Fat Buu). When Buu was first created, the Guardian saw that he was too powerful to defeat with direct confrontation and so allowed Buu to absorb him so that his own purity and innocence would overwhelm the incredible malice and hatred the creature possessed(it also greatly reduced Buu's aggression, making him more like a playful but destructive child rather than actively malicious) This is what made it possible for Mr. Satan to reason with him. When Super Buu "purifies" himself of everyone he's absorbed, he reverts back to Kid Buu, his weakest form, but dangerously more [[AxCrazy insane and malevolent]]. Unlike any of Buu's previous forms, he has no dialogue (no playful songs, no one-liners, no monologuing on his superiority) except for maniacal laughter as he kills people and blows up planets for fun.
