* Naofumi of ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' lost the ability to trust anyone after [[CynicismCatalyst Malty betrayed and defamed him]] with the help of the King and other Heroes. He only trusts Raphtalia because she's a slave and so magically cannot betray him. When she's freed and Naofumi is losing all hope, Raphtalia tells him she believes in his innocence and willingly becomes his slave so he'll be able to trust her again. His attitude, while still grim and hateful, is very much improved afterwards.

* The blue Zygarde (a.k.a. Z-2) in ''Anime/{{Pokémon}} XYZ'' already had a jaded view on humanity; it was after getting captured, experimented on and mind-controlled by Team Flare, culminating in the organization setting it loose on Lumiose City that only worsened its perception. Even after being freed from its mind control, Zygarde allowed Team Flare's true superweapon, the Megalith, to wreak more havoc. It was when the heroes try to stop the Megalith, in spite of the futility of the situation, that the red Zygarde (Z-1, who's been travelling with Ash and friends) finally convinced its other half that humans needed to be protected by them in spite of, and maybe even because of, their flaws. With the two Zygarde in {{Synchronisation}}, they [[FusionDance fuse]] and transform into Complete Forme Zygarde to finish off Team Flare's leader and the Megalith once and for all.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': As stated in the King Piccolo Saga, Kami had originally created the [[MacGuffin Dragon Balls]] to serve as a symbol of hope for humanity, but the exact opposite happened as humans only wanted to use the balls for their own selfish purposes; thus, after King Piccolo destroyed Shenron after getting his youth restored, Kami initially chose to just let Shenron stay dead. It was seeing Goku's love for his friends, as well as his valiant efforts against Piccolo, that convinced Kami there were still good people in the world.

* Joseph [=McCarthy's=] witch hunts against communists during the 1950s made his position almost untouchable. Not many people dared to question his tactics and general paranoia, which ruined the careers and reputations of many people who would normally be protected by the United States law to have free expression. Yet Edward Murrow, a journalist, risked his entire career by directly challenging McCarthy's ethics and methods. His bold stance worked and soon the senator and the general anti-communist climate was deemed unconstitutional and caused his downfall.
