* [[{{Protagonist}} Yusuke Urameshi]] and [[{{Deuteragonist}} Kuwabara Kazuma]] from ''YuYuHakusho''. Both characters start out as [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority angry teens who rebel against authority]]. By the end of the series both characters end up happy with their lives. Kuwabara changes his ways and gets serious about school. He gets into a prestigious high school through hard work. Yusuke didn't have it as easy, but he ended up happy in the end (despite not getting passed a Junior High Education).

This Trope is OlderThanDirt. In Myth/ClassicalMythology after killing his music teacher [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally]], Hercules is sent to a farm to become a more peaceful person. Another old example, is Moses from Literature/TheBible. [[ItWasHisSled After finding out that he was a Hebrew]], Moses kills an Egyptian Slavemaster who's beating his slave and flees to Ethiopia. While there, he gets married and becomes a wiser and more peaceful person.

** The Super Saiyan transformation is fueled by anger and once achieved the user is nearly overcome with rage. Goku and the others have to learn to control the anger or go berserk. It's hinted that one reason Goku's fight with Freeza last so long was that he was also struggling with the anger.

Contrast TeachHimAnger, where a NiceGuy or an ExtremeDoormat, is given a backbone.

** ArrogantKungFuGuy Ranma Saotome is a milder example. In one episode, he get's LaserGuidedAmnesia after Akane makes him hit his head on a rock and starts to believe that he's a girl. Because he's a girl, he becomes nicer and more peaceful.
* Another example from one Creator/RumikoTakahashi's works. In ''Manga/InuYasha'' several demons went around with a chip on their shoulder. They were cruel, vicious, and only wanted power. Prime examples being [[{{Protagonist}} Inuyasha]], [[TheRival Koga]], and [[AloofBigBrother Sesshoumaru]]. By the end of the series, Inuyasha [[spoiler: settles down and is married to Kagome.]] He is a much happier and more peaceful person. Sesshoumaru is still aloof and still [[WalkingTheEarth wanders the Earth]] with [[ButtMonkey Jaken]] at his side. However, [[MoralityPet Rin]] has clearly changed him for the better, helping him [[CharacterDevelopment move from]] being a cold-blooded killer to a [[TheStoic stoic]] but caring individual. And [[TheRival Koga]], at least in the anime, [[spoiler: settles down and marries his betrothed.]]

* In ''{{Hamlet}}'', the titular character spends much of the play angry over [[ItWasHisSled Claudius murdering King Hamlet]]. In his anger he [[spoiler: kills Polonius which sets off a chain of events including [[TheOphelia Ophelia going insane]] and [[YouKilledMyFather Laertes]] wanting revenge.]] By the end of the play, Hamlet has more or less come to accept the mistakes and enemies that he's made.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth Doctor]] is constantly struggling to control the anger that has built up in him over 2,000+ years of confronting villains, [[WhoWantsToLiveForever eventually losing everyone he loves]], etc. He has a noticeably pricklier personality than most incarnations as a result, with NoSocialSkills, and at least two {{Berserk Button}}s -- war and his companion Clara (his MoralityChain) coming to harm. He also comes down ''hard'' on villains who can't be reasoned with, as his BadassBoast to the Boneless in the climax of "Flatline" makes clear. He does soften with time, but in the final stretch of Series 9 (his second season) [[spoiler: she is Killed Off For Real]] '''and then''' his enemies [[spoiler: torture him for ''four-and-a-half billion years'', as escaping his chamber in a way that will further his plan to save her means he must constantly die and relive the torture. Billions of times]]. He emerges from this as TheUnfettered WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, so damaged that the only thing that can tame and restore him to his best self is [[spoiler: forgetting her altogether, though he manages to recall the experiences he had with her]].
