** YuGiOhVRAINS might be bleaker and more cynical that the series in the franchise before it, but alongside the original and ''ZEXAL'', this series portrays one of the strongest examples of this trope, considering the villains are more WellIntentionedExtremist 's, the rivals are not the usual jerks but rather complex people with understandable motivations, and Yusaku has a legitimately good reason for his cold-hearted Jerkass attitude.

* Nightmarishly played with in ''Series/BlackMirror'''s ''Men Against Fire''. Arquette certainly thinks this is true for humanity...[[spoiler:which he believes is a serious flaw in the species. He specifically mentions statistics pointing out how hard it is for a man to pull the trigger when in combat, needlessly extending conflict when soldiers could just buckle up and be done with it. Which is why he's now part of a project manipulating soldiers' haptics to mask the defenseless people they're slaughtering and make them appear as mutated monsters.]]

* With the exception of [[Monster/{{Disney}} Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear]], this can be said about the villains in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''.

* One of the defining themes of ''TheFugitive'' show. People would help FalselyAccused Richard Kimble escape from the police because they've learned he's a genuinely good man who helped them.

Added DiffLines:

* Zigzagged in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', where some villains ''are'' presented as truly irredeemable, but the overall view of people in general is ultimately rather optimistic. Much emphasis is placed on the fact that the masses are cowed and apathetic only due to mind-numbing propaganda and pressure to conform from the evil authorities, and people flock to the good guys' banners as soon as they present a better alternative to the corrupt status quo. And when the people are given the clearly stated choice between good and evil, the majority eventually choose good.

* This is the entire point of ''Film/TheLivesOfOthers'': The main character is a [[SecretPolice Stasi]] agent named Wiesler in early 1980s EastGermany, spying on a playwright suspected of Western sympathies. Wiesler is portrayed as torn between his loyalty to his job and his fundamental human sympathy with the target of his spying, and when the playwright conspires to write an article for the {{West German|y}} ''Der Spiegel'' about the high rate of suicide in East Germany, Wiesler does all kinds of things to keep his bosses from knowing.
