* ''Series/Highlander'' has a few examples:
** Darius had once been a powerful general whose armies were ready to march over all of Europe. On the steps of Paris, Darius took the head of an Immortal who had been a holy man and seemed to absorb the man's goodness. This caused him to disband his armies and spend the next thousand years as a priest.
** Duncan is convinced his old adversary Kirin is up to something as leader of a cult as the man has spent centuries only out for himself. They last clashed in 1970s Cambodia where Kirin refused to help Duncan save some children because he was running a drug deal. However, Kirin confesses to Duncan that when he discovered those children brutally massacred by the Khmer Rogue, he was so overcome with guilt that he's dedicated his life since to making up for his past.

* Post-Parallax ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' Hal Jordan. Then it seemed that that Hal Jordan wasn't ''really'' Parallax, that he was merely ''possessed'' by an evil creature named Parallax that did all of those bad things and therefore absolves him of all responsibly and exempts him from CharacterDevelopment. And ''then'' we see that he ''still'' feels responsible for his actions '''when being possessed''', just like [[spoiler:Kyle]] when ''he'' was possessed during the ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar''. Part of his interaction with the Corps is trying to rebuild [[PowerOfTrust the trust]] he lost when he killed his fellow Corps members and essentially destroyed the original GreenLanternCorps.

** Sandor "The Hound" Clegane has been known to kill anyone for the slightest reason, and even murdered a devout father and his daughter because he wanted their money, and claimed that if he didn't kill them, they would've died in wintertime. But after being beaten by lady Brienne and left for dead by Arya, he gained a new, if somewhat less cynical view on life, after being nursed by a band who worships the Seven Gods. [[spoiler: After they are murdered, and avenges their deaths, he promises to only kill when he needs to, and when he and his companions stumble into the house he robbed, he buries the murdered father and daughter. While he does his best to hide it, Thoros sees right through his facade when he's burying them.]]

* Commissioner Gordon becomes this in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' when he realizes [[JerkassHasAPoint Harvey Dent]] and [[VillainHasAPoint The Joker]] were right about the extent of the corruption in his unit and, had he listened, it wouldn't have resulted in [[spoiler:corrupt cops kidnapping Dent and Rachael, disfiguring the former and killing the latter. It only lasts until Two-Face kidnaps his family, but until then the sheer desperation in his voice shows how responsible he feels and how obsessed he is with rescuing Harvey:]]

* William Munny in ''Film/{{Unforgiven}}'' really ''tries'' to be one of these; in his youth, he was a vicious, cold-blooded killer of an outlaw who only mended his ways when he married a saintly woman; after she dies, he struggles making a living as a hog farmer and trying to raise their two children until an old friend comes along to offer him a bounty on two cowboys who mutilated a young prostitute and went unpunished; when the trope is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] and Munny's finally forced to come out of retirement, it's not pretty.
