* The Captain from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', sometimes called Hans Günsche ''a la'' his prototype version: Evil because he's a Nazi, but shows occasional "good"ness, or at least helpfulness to the goodies.
** On the other hand, Captain Pip Bernadette/Bernadotte/Vernedead stays on the good side to the end... And even after that.
