* The ''Manga/SaintSeiya''/''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12451409/1/The-Hero-Melromarc-Needs-and-Deserves The Hero Melromarc Needs and Deserves]]'' has [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Cancer Deathmask]] cast in Naofumi's place. Considering [[BloodKnight how]] [[CardCarryingVillain he]] [[BlackAndGrayMorality is]] in ''Saint Seiya'' and he was summoned from well before he received his slice of HumblePie, he becomes this simply by deciding to ''help''-while still considering killing everyone in Melromarc's capital if the king continues with his condiscendent attitude.

** Karel from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'' fits this trope in ''Rekka no Ken'', where he was a massive BloodKnight known as the ''Sword Demon'' who eventually rediscovers a part of his humanity through his supports. In ''Fuuin no Tsurugi'', his OlderAndWiser self is the famed ''Saint of Swords'', and acts much calmer.

* Cancer Deathmask in ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeG'' by virtue of being [[CardCarryingVillain the same evil sadist]] as in [[Manga/SaintSeiya the original series]], only this time he's fully on the heroes' side. Best shown when a Giant-a PhysicalGod bent on exterminating manking for not worshipping him-enters his Temple and [[EvenEvilHasStandards is horrified when he sees it's covered by the unresting souls of Deathmask's victims manifesting as wailing faces]] and [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out on this]], only to get called out on how ''he'' is trying to exterminating mankind and added to the collection.

They are {{antihero}}es who have a fundamental LackOfEmpathy, a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] disregard for their enemies' lives, and possibly a lack of concern for even the people they save. They may be motivated [[ItAmusedMe by boredom]], a [[BloodKnight raw thirst for combat]], or by some sort of carrot-and-stick arrangement - [[RestrainingBolt a chip in the head]], [[MoralityChain an attachment to some person or thing that requires them to do good]], or a [[MoralSociopathy pragmatic code that prevents their truly inhuman nature from landing them in jail]].

They may solve their problems in much the [[NotSoDifferent same way as a villain would]]--ruthlessly manipulating and killing their way to their goal. They may routinely torture, murder, and/or commit evil acts nearly as bad as the BigBad. [[TheUnfettered They'll do whatever it takes to win]]. The people they fight beside are shocked with their behavior, but try to tell themselves, "[[GladHesOnOurSide At least they're on our side]]." Even that may not be true in the end, where it may be suggested that [[HeWhoFightsMonsters this "hero" has become as evil as any of the monsters he vanquished]].

* PeterPan, probably much to the surprise of those only familiar with the LighterAndSofter adaptations. Peter spends an awful lot of his time killing off pirates, and often is willing to put his friends in danger simply because it would be interesting or even funny. This is because of the basic nature of his character; being a child forever, he's inherently selfish and often amoral. This is played up a bit in the 2003 film, but most adaptations soften the edges off the character. It is mentioned that during the fights between the Lost Boys and the pirates, if the pirates seem to be at a disadvantage, Peter will join their side to even things out. That's right, he will happily fight and ''kill'' his friends just because it's more of a challenge. Evidently, Lost Boys come and go, and Peter doesn't have any real interest in keeping track of them.

** The First Doctor started out as this. He held some meaningful ideals, but genuinely did not understand or care about other people's feelings, being happy to openly lie to them and play them against each other to follow his own goals, which were mostly just to be able to do whatever he wanted ForScience. He kidnaps people, gets them into trouble for his own amusement, constantly accuses them of trying to steal from him, and at one point he even tries to murder a person for no reason beyond paranoia, while at the same time using a paper-thin veneer of doddery-old-man in order to make himself look weak and innocent whenever he has to. His granddaughter is something of a MoralityPet but even though she loves him she is obviously terrified of him, often more than the monsters, and weeps openly in fear of repercussions whenever she tries to persuade him to do something for her. He gets some CharacterDevelopment, though - Ian and Barbara manage to drum some basic manners into him, and although he starts out with NoSocialSkills and occasionally slips back into treating his companions like dirt (although apologising for it afterwards), by "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" he's declared himself a defender of the weak and by "The Time Meddler" he chooses to punish someone in a devastating but pointedly non-fatal way.
** The most blatant example of the Doctor as this trope was The Seventh Doctor. Several episodes, particularly in his later two seasons, were devoted to him caring only about winning, above all else (this is particularly true in the episode CurseOfFenric).
** The later regenerations of the Doctor constantly struggle against becoming this. During "The Waters of Mars" the Tenth Doctor ended up going so completely [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope off the deep end]], he briefly styled himself as "The Time Lord Victorious" and was willing to break time itself in half to save people, even if they didn't ''want'' him to.

She still has a strong moral centre, however, and despite never expressing any genuine empathy at any time, still has a few tender moments and a soft spot for [[TeamPet Bear]].

* The heroes of religious stories often get a pass similar to the Fairy Tale folder above. In Literature/TheBible, for example, the prophet Elisha asks God to punish a gang of teenagers for mocking and insulting him...and God complies by [[BearsAreBadNews sending two bears to devour the lot of them]].
* Myth/GreekMythology heroes. ALL of them. While some do have stronger moral compasses than others, Myth/GreekMythology doesn't ponder with such pesky concepts as "right" and "wrong" or "good" and "evil". The only concept of "sin" which the Myth/GreekMythology knows is ''hubris'', delusion of being as good as [[JerkassGod the deities]] - which means, of course, that [[OmniscientMoralityLicense if you are a deity yourself, you are categorically incapable of sinning]].

* Interestingly, while ''{{Ultima}} IV'' is written with the clear expectation that you should be the diametric opposite of this, there is the fact that Virtues can't actually go below zero. So there's nothing stopping you from spending the first part of the game stealing, murdering city guards for money and experience, abusing the trust of blind herbalists by underpaying them for their services, and messing around with incredibly evil skulls... until you have a few levels under your belt, plenty of money, and reagents for your spells, at which point you turn into a living saint. Also, while giving money to beggars is Compassionate, doing so by giving one coin at a time (to maximise the reward) is questionable ethics.
