** While he already was Naruto's ally, [[spoiler: Kurama]] takes a '''big''' level [[spoiler:after Neji's death]] by going out of his way to remind a distressed Naruto of the sacrifices others made for him, [[spoiler:even those that were caused ''by Kurama himself''. It wasn't too long ago that a similar incident was used to the Kyuubi's advantage to persuade Naruto to release the seal...]]

* Piccolo from ''DragonballZ'' went from a raving, sadistic psychopath and a literal ''Demon prince'', to one of the most levelheaded characters, all thanks to the kindness of a single child!
** Granted, this is probably because he only turned after he [[YouKilledMyFather fulfilled his revenge against Goku]].
** Another example from Dragonball Z is Vegeta, the last remaining pure-blood Saiyan who retains their nature and pride. Once he finally turns against the one responsible for their genocide, he relocates to earth (with little choice) and grows soft in the presence of the other Z Fighters...and, after a decade or so, his wife and son. But even though his HeelFaceTurn is made official near the end of the series (because it took that long), he doesn't make it past JerkWithAHeartOfGold. He comes about as close as is possible, but he never sheds his Saiyan nature.

* Nami from ''OnePiece''. Gradually as the series has gone on, but especially after the timeskip. From forgiving Hachi, to immediately hugging Usopp and Chopper when they reunite, to even immediately forgiving Jinbei for letting Arlong loose on East Blue, she's come a pretty long way from the JerkassFacade she started out with.

* This is the driving force behind the plot of ''OnaniMasterKurosawa'': A cynical jerk who sequesters himself from the rest of the world softens over time, beginning with [[spoiler: his falling in love for the first time]] and ultimately culminating in [[spoiler: him becoming TheAtoner after he [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realizes that he's badly hurt one of his few friends.]]]]

* Gary Oak/Shigeru in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' becomes much nicer to Ash around the Johto arc after his BreakTheHaughty phase in the Kanto arc. By the end of the Johto arc, he and Ash finally become friends again after so many years to being rivals (which sticks when they meet again in Sinnoh).

** According to "Training Daze" Jessie and James were considerably more somber than they are in the current time.

* ''Manga/InitialD'' fans know Shingo as an asshole driver who deliberately bumps into his opponents' cars to provoke them and [[spoiler:tried to ''run Takumi off the mountain pass'' in a last-ditch move.]] After [[spoiler:said last-ditch move fails and leads to Shingo getting into an accident instead,]] he becomes a ''lot'' more polite when Iketani and Itsuki see him again, and in ''Initial D Extra Stage'' he's very buddy-buddy with his fellow drivers.

* Perrine H. Clostermann starts out as a ClingyJealousGirl madly in love with Mio and openly resenting Yoshika because of how friendly the two are with each other to not only a really kind person who grows to view Yoshika as a friend and a comrade but also a really generous person more than willing to give all her funds to rebuilding her homeland of Gallia.

** Perhaps the most ridiculous example is Majin Buu. He was fully prepared to just destroy the Earth and kill everyone on it... but then Hercule told him that killing is wrong. And that was all it took! Apparently, between his two previous masters telling him nothing but "kill" and "destroy", he just hadn't considered that it was immoral.
