** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has this in the form of [[spoiler:Poppy Pipopapo, a mascot character of a rhythm game who is also a Bugster. Emu and Hiiro already had it figured out long before she revealed herself though, as her human name, Asuna Karino, is an anagram of ''kari no naasu'', meaning "provisional nurse", and a human with a name that fits their profession is tad suspicious.]]

* ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' Adalind is the most obvious example, as a former Hexenbeist (one of the most agressive of the Wesen). Also Renard who is a Zauberbiest (male version of the Hexenbiest) although is unknown if they are normally as mean as the female.

* An example of DefectorFromDecadence is Tyger in DonBluth’s ''AnAmericanTail'', a cat that can’t stand the evil ways of his people and choose not to hunt mice again, helping the protagonists against other cats.
* Friendly baby TyrannosaurusRex Chopper in the ''LandBeforeTime'' sequels seems to be there to show that the Sharptooth are not just mindless flesh-eating beasts.

** In general the relationship of Nick with several Wesens (Monroe, Rosalee and Renard) is something that his mother, a more traditional Grimm, can't understand.

** In general the relationship of Nick with several Wesens (Monroe, Rosalee and Renard) is something that his mother, a more traditional Grimm, can't understand. Since Grimms are TheDreaded among Wesen for the VanHelsingHateCrimes some of them committed in the past, ''Nick'' is this to the ''entire'' Wesen community.



** And Nog, a Ferengi who joins Starfleet and serves on the Defiant. To a lesser extent, his father Rom who becomes a non Starfleet station engineer, and Quark who is a JerkassWithAHeartOfGold but is on the side of the heroes when it really counts.

Most Ferengi encountered in ''other'' series are SpacePirates even ''after'' the attempt to make them the new Klingons was abandoned.



* In ''Franchise/KamenRider'', there's often a 'monsters are people too' subplot when the villain race is an entire species. ''Faiz'' has three Orphenochs living together ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}''-style (before ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}!'') and then reveals that [[spoiler:the main Rider is also one]]. ''Kiva'' from the same series has a trio of monsters from ''other'' monster races that were all but wiped out by the series' villains, the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Fangire]], with Jiro/Garulu being the one who really holds the role in the cast. There are several non-evil Fangire, but mostly one-shot civilians - the one that's a main character is [[spoiler: again, our hero. Or at least he's ''half'' Fangire.]] ''Kabuto'' has the Native Worms, though they're [[spoiler: not on the level, in the end. This time, more than one character turns out to be one and is genuinely good.]] No, it isn't [[spoiler: Kabuto himself]] this time. There's the -taros quartet of Imagin in ''Den-O'' (as well as Sieg, Deneb, Teddy, and a few more), Ankh in ''OOO,'' Chase in ''Drive,'' and more. Also, several series have Rider tech being refined versions of the tech that created the monsters, making heroes and Orcs the ''same thing.'' (See ''Fourze, Double,'' and several of the older ones.)

**In ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon,'' the Mole Beastman failed to take out the hero, and was saved from YouHaveFailedMe by him. He went on to become a main character and ally. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he does not survive to the end.]]
**''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'' has a MonsterOfTheWeek become a comic relief sidekick type character. By the end, he works in the restaurant the Rangers worked in. And in that series the villains are not a species or altered humans - he was ''created for evil'' but [[MinionWithAnFInEvil has an F in it]].

* Tara in ''WesternAnimation/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'' is a tomato working with the good guys, albeit only Chad knows she's a tomato. Same can be said about F.T. the tomato-dog. Of course, other tomatoes are shown to be not evil including a parody of the ''Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon'' and an ElvisImpersonator tomatoe.

* Literature/TheBFG, or Big Friendly Giant, is the only friendly member of his species, the rest of whom are AlwaysChaoticEvil brutes who [[ToServeMan prey on humans]].
* [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in any of Tolkien's work. He believed Orcs should be AlwaysChaoticEvil, thus robbing us of the chance to make an IncrediblyLamePun.
