* Marina, the dark-skinned Octarian idol who makes up one half of the idol duo "Off the Hook" in ''VideoGame/Splatoon2''.

Downplayed by the fact that, according to WordOfGod, no one except maybe her partner Pearl is ''even aware that she's an Octarian''.

** Strong of ''Videogame/Fallout4'' is something of a mixed bag. While he is comparatively heroic for a Super Mutant and approves of acts of benevolence and selflessness, he's also the most brutish and savage of the companions and loves acts of violence and killing. The Far Harbor DLC has Erickson, a friendly Supermutant dog trainer who was altered by the radioactive fog to realize how pointless the lifestyle of a typical Supermutant was and lives a quiet secluded life.

* The GrandFinale of Creator/JossWhedon's ''[[Comicbook/XMen Astonishing X-Men]]'' includes a notable [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstruction]] of this trope, where we learn that the character who's set up as the Token Heroic Orc is actually the arc's true BigBad. It turns out that the prophecy that kick-started the story's events (that one of the X-Men would [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the home planet of that story's "Orcs"]]) was actually planted by said character, who ''wanted'' [[OmnicidalManiac it to come true]] because she thought that living under her [[EvilOverlord Emperor]]'s barbaric rule was a FateWorseThanDeath. The story points out that, even in an alien culture that seems evil to us, a person willing to completely reject every underlying value of their species' culture probably wouldn't be a paragon of mental health.

Ami's [[InsistentTerminology employees]] are predominantly amoral, evil, sadistic, stupid, or some combination thereof. However, Ami herself, as an unquestionably heroic heroine, enforces laws in her domain that generally discourage the aforementioned tendencies in her minions. As such, her goblins begin to show pride in their work -- even in work that includes mopping floors and being clean.

* From ''[[Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt The Thousand Orcs]]'' into ''The Orc King'', King Obould Many-Arrows starts out as a homicidal warlord bent on dominating everything like most other Orc warlords, but after becoming the Avatar of the Orc god Gruumsh One-Eye he calms down considerably, becoming able to see things in a far broader perspective than any orc before him, which has already led to speculation as to a pending change in orcish society under his leadership.
** In the prologue of ''The Orc King'', a hundred years have passed, and the kingdom which Obould created, the Kingdom of Many Arrows, has survived the years, establishing trade agreements and treaties with the surrounding cities of the "goodly races", and with a descendant of Obould, Obould VI, in control but being contested fiercely by shamans of Gruumsh who believe in the old ways of being self dependent and not being peaceful with the good races. The situation being as it is in ''The Orc King'' furthers the growing desire for peace within Obould I; this, of course, is only strengthened by the story of the prologue, which obviously shows Obould's vision of the future as an inevitability.
