* Happened in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' each time Ataru got a better personality.
** When Ataru ended up getting split into his good and evil halves (the latter being pretty much identical to his usual self), Mrs. Moroboshi refused to keep the good one, saying she preferred her flawed real son.
** At one point Lum ended up accidentally slipping into a series of parallel universes. In the last one, she met an Ataru who was kind and devoted to only her. She immediately left him, making it clear the only 'Darling' she'll accept is the one who's lecherous and treats her like dirt.

* In an episode of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', [[GenderBender Ranma]] gets hit on the [[IdentityAmnesia head]], thinks he's really a [[LossOfIdentity girl]], and disavows fighting. Later Akane says, "Change back. I don't care if you are rude and insensitive and inconsiderate. I know I complain all the time, but sweet and innocent just isn't you."
** And then goes bananas when "Fake Ranma" gently tells her s/he can't just change back, chasing her/him around with a baseball bat, though fortunately [[LaserGuidedAmnesia his real personality is restored after falling into the pond and hitting her/his head again]]. Then again, this ''is'' [[{{Tsundere}} Akane Tendo]] we're talking about.
** There was also an episode where Happosai fell in love with a kindergarten teacher and decided to renounce to his, er... "evil" ways. In spite of all the fear they have of regular Happosai, Soun and Genma spend the episode trying to force him back into being a {{Dirty Old|Man}} {{Jerkass}}, stringing Ranma along for the ride. In the end, they manage to push their master far enough to succeed.
* In the first season of ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'', type A {{Tsundere}} Louise drinks a love potion. HilarityEnsues as the rest of the cast try to undo her ClingyJealousGirl transformation.
** Only [[IdiotHero Saito]]. EVERYONE else tells him that the new lovey-dovey Louise is much better than the almost sadistic other one. [[WhatAnIdiot He tries undoing it anyway.]]
* In ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', during a HotSpringsEpisode, the springs detoxify the mentally unbalanced class into normal, well-adjusted people. Itoshiki demands the class be returned to their disturbed selves...which they do become by the end of the episode.
** Don't forget the end when the students throw Itoshiki in the hot springs... and he DISSOLVES. Apparently he was made of pure toxins. [[StatusQuoIsGod He's back in the next episode with no explanation, of course.]]
*** He stayed at the bottom of the spring because he lost his robe when they threw him in. Last thing you see is him curled into a ball before the credits.
* In volume 7 of ''Manga/TheWallflower'', a strange woman gives Yuki a basket of mushrooms, which, once eaten, turns Sunako into a "lady". However, once they realize that she has absolutely none of the domestic kinds of skills that she had before (being able to clean, do laundry, cook, etc.), they quickly find a method to turn her back.
* This was a part of the plot of ''Anime/NanakaSixSeventeen.'' Nenji wrestled with this dilemma when his nagging anti-social childhood friend Nanaka suffered amnesia. The amnesia regressed her personality to that of a six-year old who, while tiresome and largely dependent on Nenji, was also far more sweet and lovable than her adult self.
* In the ''Manga/LoveHina'' manga, after Motoko is humiliatingly defeated by her older sister in combat, she resolves to be more feminine, and [[{{Meido}} takes over most of the household chores]]. However, she attacks them with the same zeal and discipline that she put into her swordsmanship training, and soon makes everyone miserable. It takes an emotional breakdown and another fight with her sister (with backup from Keitaro and his cursed sword) to set things right.

* Happens to Maeda in ''Manga/AiKora'', where an experimental love potion gone awry causes him to become shy and prudish instead of his usual LoveableSexManiac self.

* ''Manga/HappyLesson'': In one episode, Chitose gets fed up with his "mothers'" shenanigans and kicks them out of his house, but then realizes that he is reverting to his old habits; by the end, he relents and returns the copies of his house keys that he'd confiscated.
* In a ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' side-story, [[LovableSexManiac Issei]] loses his perversion and the Occult Research Club tries to restore him back to his perverted self, partly because [[SupportingHarem the girls]] want Issei [[AllWomenAreLustful to admire them in a sexual manner]] and partly because they're so used to Issei's usual perverted self that this his new personality seems weird.
