* When ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' aired, Juzo Sakakura didn't make the best impression. He's a violent {{Jerkass}} who resorts to beating the crap out of people he did not like or goes against his more low-key antagonist best friend Kyosuke Munakata, and has a severe IrrationalHatred towards [[TheHero Makoto Naegi]], while in the past, he looks down on the Reserve Course student and they should be happy of being nobodies instead of being talented like him, and severely beat up Hajime Hinata for that, though it was to protect him from getting killed by the school committee, he went really over the top about his jerk ways. All in all, combined with a lot of fuck-ups he did in the past, he was really on the way to become the most hated character in the franchise, there was even a subreddit dedicated to hate him. As time passed, fans started to appreciate his loyalty, and then he's shown to be at least trying in doing good deeds, only for things to not go their way, and then it was revealed that [[spoiler:he's gay for Kyosuke, and the BigBad used it to her advantage to blackmail him]], giving him sympathy, and then [[spoiler:horribly stabbed by an unhinged Kyosuke]], and eventually sealed the deal by [[spoiler:surviving that, saving Makoto from a brainwashing process and admitting to Makoto that he screwed up big time and Makoto succeeding just made his self-loathing of those mistakes worse and finally putting an end to the Killing Game by putting the power supply back up [[HeroicSacrifice at cost of his life]].]] And suddenly, the ones who used to be cursing and wanting Juzo to die started praising him like a savior and true hero. Also, the aforementioned subreddit started losing subscribers.

* ''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.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'' had Asem Asuno, the second generation protagonist. His angsting about not being [[PsychicPowers an X-Rounder]] and his need to prove himself to his father did not do much to endear him to the fanbase. Then comes a DyingSpeech from [[spoiler:his mentor Woolf]] about walking his own path and becoming his own pilot, and Asem proceeds to [[spoiler:kill Desil Galette]], despite a total lack of PsychicPowers, a rarity for ''Gundam'' protagonists. To rephrase, he beat the series' Newtype-equivalent with NO special powers at all, just pure skill. Suddenly the fans are singing the praises of Asem Asuno, the [[MemeticMutation SUPER PILOT]]! [[spoiler:His becoming a SpacePirate with appropriately themed Gundam in the next season has only increased his BadAss, as far as the fans are concerned.]]

* ''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.

* This happened to Bart in ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'' as a result of his ADayInTheLimelight episode. The SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome made him {{Badass}}, and the ImportantHaircut (or rather, the reason for it) made him [[CharacterDevelopment sympathetic]]. Though his [[LetsGetDangerous newfound competence]] helped, it was still primarily the CharacterDevelopment that did it in earlier episodes, culminating in a blurb before the new season where the older version boggles at the younger version and wonders if he used to be that silly.
