* The ''VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries'' has "John Doe", aka SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, who manages to be this to Bruce. He's a violent and unsettlingly creepy lunatic who derives cruel pleasure from fighting, mayhem, and destruction, but at the same time he's a truly loyal friend to Bruce who genuinely cares about him, even ''saving his life'' at a couple key points in both Seasons. He manages to be simultaneously an innocent victim of mental illness as well as ''scary as hell''.

--> ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' gives us Arcane Olga, a sadistic witch's ghost who cackles as she drains the life out of innocent civilians. She is later recruited by the BigBad, who is a SophisticatedAsHell AntiVillain. She is working for him because she admires him and will reign in her sadism based on his orders, however if he doesn't specifically order her otherwise she goes right back to hurting people for the fun of it.

* Rick from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', despite all the abuse, treating his family as a means to an end, and all his ''many '''many''''' flaws, will look out for his friends and family when the chips are down and isn't even sure why he bothers. Of course, since it's ''Rick'', he'll do it in some pretty ruthless, messed up, and heartless ways. Best example is when he passively protects Jerry of all people from a jealous alien out to kill him:
--> '''Message One:''' This is Garmos! I have intercepted sexual communications between you and my new girlfriend Keara! I am coming to kill you NOW!!!
--> '''Message Two:''' Yo Jerry it's the Big R. I killed that alien that was coming after ya. Looking out for you, buddy.
--> '''Message Three:''' Yo Jerry it's Rick. Don't be mad I fucked your ex-girlfriend Keara.

* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'': Pella commits a crime to further the main character's cause.

* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'': Richard. Just... Richard. Cale has conceded that Richard is both a blight upon the world and the best chance they have at saving it, IF he gets enough material to troll Cale with when the party isn't looking. And by material we mean knights, peasants, orphans, endangered animals, funny dogmatic armies, doggy funmatic MixAndMatchCritter, etc.

Though sometimes introduced as anti-heroes or turncoats from the other side, they cease to be those things because they place their fundamental loyalty upon the shoulders of their "master". Basically they become a good guy's secretly-evil minion, or a bad guy's [[TheDragon much-badder sidekick]].

The Poisonous Friend is usually attached to a [[ActualPacifist pacifist]]/[[AllLovingHero all-loving]] IdealHero or a [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned]]/[[NobleDemon noble]] AntiVillain. They tend to consider their "master" a person to be worshipped or protected at all costs -- even ones that the master [[WhatTheHellHero would not knowingly permit]].

For example, if the master is a [[TheFettered Fettered]] pacifist [[ThouShaltNotKill completely against killing his enemies]], the Poisonous Friend might pay lip-service to this trait while the master is nearby... and then turn around and butcher the enemy behind the master's back. If caught, they'll claim they just [[IDidWhatIHadToDo "did what had to be done"]]. [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Few masters catch on.]]
