* In Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation, [[FanNickname Secret]] is, on paper, an EvilCounterpart to the [[KnightInShiningArmor Knights In Shining Armor]] of the setting, the Solars, since she is a Death Knight, has the requisite RedEyesTakeWarning, and got her Exaltation from a DealWithTheDevil. But in practice, she's more like this: she tries to avoid hurting people when possible, she doesn't follow her lord's orders, and [[spoiler: she only made her Deal because she [[IDontWantToDie was afraid of the fact that she was dying]] [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0300.html of the plague that ravaged her island]]]]. She's [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0096.html still a minor]] WalkingWasteland, however, and she infrequently has bursts of Resonance, which she gains from the aforementioned disobeying of her lord, and they are [[NightmareFuel not pretty]]. Corollary to this, she is [[{{Understatement}} not a fan]] of these outbursts, and is currently looking for ways to get out of her plight, [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0283.html such as sorcery]].

* Another ghost who is barely aware of it, [[CuteGhostGirl Aisaka Sayo]] from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. The manga version is a {{Dojikko}} who manages to trip over her own feet despite not actually ''having'' feet. The anime version gets an entire [[TearJerker episode.]]

* ''[[http://schwarzkreuz.xepher.net/sk/sk.php Schwarz Kreuz]]''[='=]s main character, Nikolas Von Helsing. He's a descendant of ''that'' [[{{Dracula}} Von Helsing]]. He used a ritual to turn himself into a vampire when his group of [[TheHunter Paladins/Clergymen]] was under attack by Nazis, and thus manages to survive to continue his order. Doesn't drink blood, but does drink alcohol. Lots of it.

True heroes look past appearances and befriend them, even [[ZombieAdvocate advocating better treatment]]. Usually, TheChick notices [[WhyIsntItAttacking they aren't attacking]] and discovers their true nature. They may be TheExile if their own species don't like having them around.

* The entire population of monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' are one, despite being monsters, they are far from being evil. [[spoiler: Even for a seemly sinister being like [[JerkassWoobie Flowey]] is sympathetic once we get to know his [[IJustWantToHaveFriends true nature]]. The only malicious beings are none other than the [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans]].]]

In fact, it is unknown whether ''any'' of them can really, truly hate when faced with [[TurnTheOtherCheek enough kindness]].

* ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'' has a village full of people who rose as various kinds of TheUndead after a massacre. Some of them hate it enough to go picking fights with people who might put them back in their graves for good; others just go about their business as usual and helped the survivors restore the town. The latter group includes a snarky skeleton archer and Jeremy the vampire cobbler.

** The reboot pilot portrays Grandpa Munster as... [[AxCrazy definitely not reluctant]]. Although he seems to (grudgingly) hold back on outright homicide.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' has the Nativity, children whose [[TrulySingleParent mothers]] were infected by the Abyss outside reality and whose souls are basically seeping wounds in the structure of the universe. For the unsuspecting kid, this means a miserable childhood wondering why AnimalsHateThem, [[DoomMagnet bad luck and misfortune follow them everywhere]], and [[MyBelovedSmother their mother is slowly going insane]]. Fortunately their souls can be fixed, assuming they're not killed by illness, accident, or a mage who pinpointed the Abyssal intrusion that was throwing off all the magic in the city.
