* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', part of the Joining Ritual to become a [[BadassArmy Grey Warden]] involves ritually drinking Darkspawn blood, where the Wardens willingly submit themselves to [[TheCorruption the Taint]], becoming immune to it's effects [[spoiler: ([[YourDaysAreNumbered for thirty years]])]], gaining the ability to [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling sense the Darkspawn]] and rendering them the only ones capable of truly slaying an Archdemon, thus ending the latest Blight.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series does this as a tradition. For instance, the original show (also named ''Series/KamenRider'') involves the main character becoming a Shocker cyborg monster, but he didn't lose his humanity and used the same transformation to fight the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Shocker creations]].

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series does this as a tradition. For instance, At the original show (also named ''Series/KamenRider'') involves very basest level, in every series the main character becoming a Shocker cyborg monster, Rider's powers are somehow connected the bad guys (most often in the form of stolen technology), but he didn't lose the hero chooses to use his humanity powers for good rather than evil.
** The Showa-era shows (1971-1989) were about ordinary people being subjected to UnwillingRoboticisation by evil organizations or cults, only to escape with their free will intact
and used the same transformation use their newfound powers to protect humanity. The few exceptions are [[Series/KamenRiderV3 V3]] and [[Series/KamenRiderStronger Stronger]] (who willingly became cyborgs so they could fight the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Shocker creations]].bad guys) and [[Series/KamenRiderAmazon Amazon]] (whose powers come from a {{Mayincatec}} artifact).



** Pretty much all the series more or less follow the same idea of their ability to transform being related to the villain of the show.

** Pretty In ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', [[spoiler:both Kouta and Kaito end up willingly becoming Overlord Invase in their pursuit of the Golden Fruit. When Kouta wins, he TakesAThirdOption and sends [[AlienKudzu the Forest of Helheim]] to a remote planet on the edge of the galaxy, sparing humanity from near extinction. Though Kaito acted as a SocialDarwinist for much all of the show and followed a different path than Kouta, he was still well-intentioned and wanted to help humanity.]]
** In ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', [[spoiler:Kiriya Kujo is killed fairly early in
the series more or less follow the same idea of their ability to transform being related by Kuroto Dan, and much later on he's revived as a Bugster (essentially a living computer virus). While it looks like he's undergone a FaceHeelTurn at first, it turns out he was just faking it, and jumps ship to the villain good guys as soon as he steals something important away from the BigBad. Kuroto is also killed and resurrected, but remains [[{{Jerkass}} a complete prick]] with a major [[AGodAmI God complex]]; technically he's on humanity's side, mainly because he hates the other side more. Together they end up developing an important vaccine that helps bring down the BigBad, and at the end of the show.series they're still Bugsters and still with the heroes.]]

* Even though ''[[MassHypnosis literally all]]'' humans in the ''FanFic/{{Pokeumans}}'' universe are sleeper agents for Pokextinction, the members of the Pokeumans organisation are still determined to protect them from people who have no scruples with using the new powers of their transformation freely and dangerously. It doesn't help that Pokextinction's plans towards their said sleeper agents are callous at best and KillEmAll at worst.

* The Bowman's Robots from ''{{Freefall}}'' arguably fit into this trope as a whole. Despite being designed as expendable labor, and the evident fact that no ammount of hard-coded safeguards can stand up to the full sapience they (accidentally) wound up with, they still want nothing more than to be of use to humanity. One (minority) faction even believes that the best way they can do so is by wiping themselves out wholesale, not just to ensure that they ''never'' become a threat to humanity, but also because the absence of adversity humanity would be stranded in, surrounded by millions upon millions of eager-to-serve robots capable of independent thought and action, would sap mankind of any philosophical impetus to continue pushing the boundaries of the cosmos - essentially rendering humans 'obsolete' amongst the hardier, faster-replicating robots, no matter how benevolent they may be.

** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] with the Emperor himself. An astonishingly powerful psyker verging on PhysicalGod, the Emperor was essentially on the side of humanity...[[FantasticRacism at the expense of all other species]], meaning that the Great Crusade was as much a war of extermination as it was an attempt to protect human worlds. Additionally, his vast power and long lifespan meant that he had great difficulty relating to the people he depended on to run his great empire, which led to a rift developing between himself and the Primarchs that ended in fully half of them betraying him and setting off a civil war that would ultimately burn the Emperor's goals to ash.

** Also, DEATH himself is fond of people, and on more than one occasion actively defends them. His granddaughter, Susan Sto Helit, is a straighter example since she actually IS human, but inherited some of her grandfather's traits and abilities. She's also his most reliable ally in protecting the people of the Disc from the Auditors of Reality.

* The ''[[Franchise/GodEater God Eater]]'' series features this trope more subtly in the form of the titular God Eaters. In order to use their God Arcs and defend humanity, they need to be injected with Oracle Cells that effectively turn them part Aragami. Otherwise, they would not only lack the strength and endurance needed to fight said Aragami, but would also literally be eaten alive by their own weapons. The use of a [[FantasticDrug powerful drug called Bias Factor]] is the only thing keeping them from transforming fully into the same monsters they fight.

** Especially in the d20 fork, there are a lot of transhuman options (of varying degrees of alteration from the base norm) available for good characters (good, of course, being by its nature opposed to a lot of the classic symptoms of a SuperSupremacist).
