* Robo from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' is one of a very small number of robots that aren't obsessed with killing all humans, and the only one to actively assist the party and be friendly to them. Aside from Johnny and his crew, who are at best neutral irreverent jerks who'd rather just race you for fun, every other machine has [[CrushKillDestroy one thing in mind]]. [[spoiler:As it turns out it's a single rogue AI that turned on humanity and corrupted and reprogrammed all the rest to do the same, and Robo happened to be derelict and out of commission when this happened.]]

** Considering the general moral bankruptcy of TimeLord society, heroic Time Lords like the Doctor, Susan Foreman, K'anpo Rimpoche, Romana, and Jenny could count.

* Mr. Logic from ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'' is the only heroic [[spoiler:[[EvilInc Boxmore]] robot]]. His creator explicitly invoked this trope; [[spoiler:after Logic turned against him, Boxman was so enraged that all his future robots were programmed to be [[TrappedInVillainy physically incapable]] of performing a HeelFaceTurn.]]

* Elma is implied to be this among Harmony Dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. While she has her moments of [[FantasticRacism looking down on humans]] in early appearances, unlike other Harmony Dragons, she actually does value human lives (best shown by the fact that she ''didn't'' demand {{Human Sacrifice}}s when she used her powers to ensure bountiful harvests in the other world).

* In ''VideoGame/Prey2017'', [[spoiler:the rest of the cast is trying to [[InvokedTrope invoke this]] with your character. [[TomatoInTheMirror You're actually]] a Typhon organism that has been implanted with Morgan Yu's memories, then placed in a simulation of the ''Talos I'' outbreak. Alex Yu and his Operators are trying to make you empathize with humans, in order to make you a Token Heroic Typhon who can make peace between humans and aliens. You're given the choice to either accept this or to stay a monster.]]


Added DiffLines:

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' when Flame King claims the people of the Fire kingdom are AlwaysChaoticEvil, including Finn's LoveInterest Flame Princess. He notes that it would be theoretically possible to ''make'' Flame Princess into a Token Heroic Orc by having her hang out with good guys, but warns that [[RPGMechanicsVerse she would take a penalty to her experience for acting out of alignment]]. Ultimately played with; Flame Princess ''does'' become heroic, but it's hinted the fire people were never actually "evil" to begin with, just normal people living in [[ValuesDissonance a culture that prizes deceit and cunning]]. Once [[spoiler:Flame King is overthrown and Flame Princess starts reforms]], they become noticeably more friendly and open.

* Most of the pigs in ''Literature/AnimalFarm'' end up [[FullCircleRevolution just as tyrannical as the human farmers they overthrew]], especially their leader Napoleon. But it's worth remembering that the original revolution arose from the idealism of a prize boar named Old Major, though he didn't live to see the revolution itself. The AmbiguouslyEvil Snowball is another possible example, and pigs are mentioned among the animals who got purged for opposing Napoleon's regime.
