* When ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' aired, Juzo Sakakura didn't make the best impression. He's a violent {{Jerkass}} who resorted to beating the crap out of people he did not like or who went against his more low-key antagonist best friend Kyosuke Munakata, and has a severe IrrationalHatred towards [[TheHero Makoto Naegi]]. In the past, he looked down on the Reserve Course student and thought they should be happy being nobodies instead of being talented like him. That was his excuse to severely beat up Hajime Hinata--even though it was really to protect him from getting killed by the school committee, he went extremely, jerkishly over the top and ended up [[spoiler:inadvertently convincing him to become Izuru]]. All in all, he was on his way to become the most hated character in the franchise and there was even a [[{{Reddit}} Subreddit]] dedicated to hating him. As time passed and even worse characters like Ruruka started getting spotlight, fans started to appreciate his loyalty and the fact that he's shown to be at least trying to do good deeds, even if they always end up backfiring. Then it was revealed that [[spoiler:he's gay for Kyosuke, and the BigBad used it to her advantage to blackmail him]], something we learned right after he was [[spoiler:stabbed by a paranoid Kyosuke in the Future Arc]], which earned him major sympathy points. The show finally sealed the deal when [[spoiler:Juzo, after surviving that, saved Makoto from a brainwashing process and admitted to him that deep down he always knew he was just insecure and jealous, recognizing Makoto as the stronger man. He then proceeded to finally put an end to the Killing Game by restoring the power supply [[HeroicSacrifice at cost of his life]], saving Aoi, Makoto, Mitarai, and his beloved Kyosuke, who found him too late and never knew his real feelings.]] Suddenly, the fandom who used to curse and wish death upon Juzo started praising him like a savior and true hero, with the hate Subreddit turning into a love one. At the end of the series, he was considered alongside Seiko and Kouichi to be one of the best new characters.

* The original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meanwhile had Kai Shiden, a self-professed coward with the face of a thug and a brash personality. While he does get some CharacterDevelopment over the course of the show, it's not until ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', wherein he reemerges as the UC equivalent of James Bond, and a number of sidestories that he becomes a veritable badass in his own right.

* As of the last few years the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' series has actually gone a long way to making Precia Testarossa a much more sympathetic TragicVillain. When she was introduced in the shows first season she was [[HateSink hated]] pretty much instantly thanks to her first scene wherein she was shown [[AbusiveParents horrifically whipping]] [[TheWoobie Fate]] while the latter was tied up [[KickTheDog for not collecting enough Jewel Seeds]]. This hatred only increased when she revealed to Fate at the end of the season [[spoiler: that she was just a clone of Precia's daughter Alicia and that [[KickTheDog she had always hated Fate]]]]. The fact that [[spoiler: she ended up ([[DisneyVillainDeath presumably]]) falling to her death instead of having a fight with any of the main protagonists also left a bad taste in a lot of viewers mouths]] with many fans hoping she would return just so she could get the ass kicking she deserved. However with the release of the first movie fans actually got to see a more sympathetic side to Precia [[spoiler: seeing her hold Alicia's lifeless corpse in her hands and realizing as she fell to her death that she could have treated Fate like an actual daughter instead of a tool]]. This continued in ''VideoGame/GearsOfDestiny'' wherein she reconciles with her familiar Linith at the end of their arc [[TogetherInDeath as the two die peacefully in each others arms]]. Finally we have ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaINNOCENT INNOCENT]]'' wherein Precia becomes a Doting mother to both Alicia ''and'' Fate (as well as being funny to boot). Suffice it to say these portrayals have gone a lone way to making Preica much more sympathetic in the fandoms eyes (it properly helps that audiences were introduced to the much more universally reviled [[InvincibleVillain Hücke]][[CreatorsPet bein]] about the same time, and in addition, there are worse mothers in anime introduced after this time frame, [[Anime/KillLaKill Ragyo Kiryuin]] is a good example of that, that Precia's old stigma of being anime's "Worst Mother Ever" has been passed down to someone else).

Added DiffLines:

** Munakuta was also RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap as well knowing that [[spoiler: his BrainwashedAndCrazy girlfriend has been corrupting into becoming a KnightTemplar. His two actions that made him seem like he crossed the MoralEventHorizon became averted after some reveals. Come to Side: Hope, a lot of fans became upset over his DownerEnding making it one of the major criticisms over that ending.]]
** If one still hates Yasuhiro coming into this anime, then they may loosen up on him in this anime as he ended up [[TookALevelInKindness becoming a lot kinder]] and shows [[CharacterDevelopment more interest in his classmates]]. His attempts to get inside the main building to save his classmates was proven to be huge comic relief in an anime that was accused of having a lot of DarknessInducedAudienceApathy thus making a case of TrappedByMountainLions [[TropesAreNotBad not being a bad thing]].

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' had several BaseBreaker who got to fall in the fandom good graces after more about them was revealed:
** Victor himself fell in BaseBreaker territory due to many people believing he rigged the competition between the two Yuris in Katsuki's favor, due to wanting to stay in Japan, and therefore lying and deceiving Yurio. Not only that, but there were implications that he was just using Yuri for his own interests and would leave him at some point, but [[spoiler:he turned out to be in love with Yuri all along, due to their ForgottenFirstMeeting, and chased Yuri out of falling for him. He also promised only to make Yurio a program, not to be his coach, something he indeed did, giving him the "On Love: Agape" routine.]]
** Christophe had as many fans as people who found him creepy and/or disgusting, although Episode 10 showed him in a more positive light as Victor's OnlyFriend and a ShipperOnDeck for Victor/Yuri. Not only that, but his otherwise controversial harassment of Yuri during the China Cup died down when [[spoiler:it was revealed they pole-danced (almost completely) naked together in the previous year, but only Christophe remembered that, as Yuri was really drunk at the time]].

** J.J.'s girlfriend, Isabella, was hated for coming off as a one-dimensional {{Jerkass}}, but Episode 11 showed how loving and supporting she is to her boyfriend/fiancee, and her jerkiness was actually just her sharing J.J.'s TheGadfly status.
** Yurio, despite having a large fanbase, also has a sizable hatedom due to his condescending and undeniably cruel attitude towards Yuri. While he seemed to be rescued from his status as a BaseBreakingCharacter in Episode 9 due to possibly undergoing CharacterDevelopment and [[TookALevelInKindness finally becoming nicer to Yuri]], Episodes 10 and 11 threatened to throw him back in the heap after [[TookALevelInJerkass he does nothing but insult Yuri and Victor]] [[spoiler: after their engagement]]. Episode 12 finally redeemed him once and for all once it's revealed what exactly his deal with Yuri is, which may still not justify his actions or behavior, but still helps him come across as more understandable and sympathetic overall as a character.
