* [[spoiler: Gemini Kanon]] from ''SaintSeiya'' tries to pull this [[spoiler: and is completely honest.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Vegeta gets this treatment after the Frieza Saga. Aside from Goku and Bulma, not one of the other Z-Fighters can stand them and have no qualms against informing him as such to his face. Case in point: after Vegeta is [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by Perfect Cell, Krillin tells him point-blank that he's ''only'' helping him for Trunks' sake and wouldn't care one bit if Vegeta ''did'' die. It's justified; even if he was technically on their side, Vegeta was still a [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]] {{Jerkass}}, and their TokenEvilTeammate.

He didn't pull an actual HeelFaceTurn until the end of the Buu Saga.

* This was the case when [[Film/CatchMeIfYouCan Frank Abagnale]] was originally released in that he wasn't trusted by anyone. One of his first jobs after being released from prison was at a supermarket. When he was about to be promoted to assistant manager, the store did a background check and immediately fired him. Fortunately for him, he was able to turn this into a career in that [[RecruitingTheCriminal he began consulting as a fraud investigator for local businesses]]. This ultimately turned into an international business for him.

** In the episode "Harley's Holiday", Harley Quinn tried to reform. The chain of events that got her sent back to Arkham started with her panicking after setting off a detector in a department store. The clerk never got a chance to explain that they just forgot to remove the security tag on the dress she just bought. At the end of the episode, as she is being returned to Arkham, Batman gives her the dress, remarking that he had a bad day too, once. She kisses him on the cheek... then smiles, tosses the dress aside and kisses him full on the lips, a move that has both Robin and Veronica looking on in stunned silence.

* [[NobleDemon Lord Darigan]] from ''Franchise/{{Neopets}}'' is a textbook example of this. Despite being an ObviouslyEvil BatOutOfHell, he was in fact a WellIntentionedExtremist who was trying to take back from [[LightIsNotGood Meridell]] and their JerkAss ruler, King Skarl. However, even though [[YankTheDogsChain his side won]], their land wasn't restored, and [[DiabolusExMachina he underwent a]] FaceHeelTurn out of nowhere. Then, when he returned, he defeated [[DragonAscendant Lord Kass]] and saved Meridell. You'd think he'd be in the Gallery of Heroes now, right? Nope! He's STILL in the Gallery Of Evil and considered a villain! *WHAP WHAP WHAP*
