** Sadly, the process was reversed with Sekai Saionji. While she's portrayed in games and anime as being impulsive and idiotic yet having a good heart and showing remorse for her actions, Sekai in the manga is shown as quite the self-centered and manipulative bitch... and two of the PlayStation endings definitely go this route as well, ''without'' giving her the madness excuse that Kotonoha tends to have when she goes {{Yandere}}.

** Lisanna for those who were sick of her [[AdaptationExpansion anime scenes]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad taking up screen-time]] that she never originally had in the manga.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, Erina who was previously seen as Soma's JerkSue rival. To many fans she was cruel, condescending, and simply unpleasant. Her haters started to find her more sympathetic thanks to CharacterizationMarchesOn to DefrostingIceQueen, her friendship with Hisako, the anime showing more of her {{Adorkable}} moments and [[spoiler: her UpToEleven {{Jerkass}} father returning to Tootsuki, who was responsible for her bitchy behavior to begin with]], and showing that she and Alice truly love each other, despite their differences.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': Bandou came across as a Scrappy because, despite being a {{badass}}, he was also an unlikeable, obnoxious one-note character who merely enjoyed killing and was intent on getting Lucy. Even when he became a HandicappedBadass, his rather stale portrayal left people wanting more. Then Bandou began to interact more with Mayu and proved to be intelligent, as well as being a {{badass}}, by daily cleaning garbage from the beach to prevent Lucy's extensive arms to throw them as projectiles and showed a JerkWithAHeartOfGold side to himself. It also helped that Bandou proved to be one of the more realistic, gray-scaled characters in a series that was more inclined to show everyone to be jerks.

** Sakura went through this at the start of ''Shippuden'' due to CharacterDevelopment and [[TookALevelInBadass becoming a lot stronger]]. Sadly, she quickly became TheScrappy again in the ''Kage Summit'' arc, after her fake love confession to Naruto, her inability to kill the [[spoiler:defected Sasuke]] and generally not doing anything besides crying and relying on Naruto again like in Part 1. However, her CoolBigSis role around both Naruto and Hinata during [[Naruto7TheLast The Last]] and overall supporting them does genuinely managed to regains some of her former glory that she once had at the start of ''Shippuden''. Unfortunately it also didn't last for too long, and she ultimately becomes a major BaseBreaker as of ''Naruto Gaiden''.

** Though she remains a BaseBreaker by and large, [[spoiler:Minerva]], of all people, has surprisingly ascended to this trope to a fair degree. Before she was one of the most reviled characters of the story, but after it was revealed [[spoiler:she is the way she is due to her AbusiveDad (who, among other acts, beat her for crying and left her naked in a forest one night) and that she actually ''regrets'' what she had become]], the fanbase eased up on her a little bit. Obviously she still has a lot of things to make up for, but as far as most readers are concerned, this is still tremendous progress in her development.

And then there's the aforementioned Sabertooth side-story.

* Speaking of Gundam, there's Saji Crossroad from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. He spends most of Season One [[TrappedByMountainLions trapped by extremely boring mountain lions]], with his only glimmer of relevance being that Setsuna is his neighbor. Most of the reaction that early-episode Saji gets is "why does this guy get so much screentime?". Towards the end of Season One, though, ''[[FromBadToWorse everything that could go wrong for him]] [[TheWoobie goes wrong]]'', and after the TimeSkip [[spoiler:he is MistakenForTerrorist and sent to an A-LAWS prison colony, where he is found by Setsuna. He then joins Celestial Being simply because they are the only ones who would take him in, and TakesALevelInBadass as the pilot of the 0-Raiser.]] Somewhere along there the hate vanished.

* Crow Hogan, from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', may be on his way to this. His [[spoiler: being a signer is slowly being justified, starting with the acquisition of his Dragon,]] and in later episodes, he actually has been sidelined in favor of other major characters.

** His ''[[Anime/YuGiOhARCV ARC-V]]'' incarnation is widely praised by most fans for his role and lack of [[SpotlightStealingSquad focus]], especially in the first half of the Synchro arc.
