* Between the end of ''VideoGame/GodOfWarIII'' and the beginning of ''VideoGame/GodOfWarPS4'', Kratos has noticeably mellowed out. While he still has his moments of UnstoppableRage, it's no longer his default emotion. Kratos is also trying to be a good parent to [[MoralityPet his son]]; even if he does sometime snap, it's out of ToughLove instead of genuine anger.

* Duncan from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': In a universe as dark and depressing as Dragon Age can be, right from the start of the game Duncan is a beacon of hope before the player becomes one. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he doesn't last very long.]]

** [[{{Yakuza}} Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu]] in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', who starts off distant, aggressive, and regularly threatens to kill his classmates. After [[spoiler: Peko's execution and learning his sister is dead]], he decides to make amends and changes his behavior. While he is still rude and hot-headed, he becomes one of the most loyal and steadfast members of the group.

* Somewhere between ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank Ratchet & Clank]]'' and ''[[RatchetAndClankGoingCommando Going Commando]]'' Ratchet evolved from being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold to a generally nice, if somewhat [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], protagonist. So much that any insult towards Clank sets off his BerserkButton.

** Karen was originally standoffish and mean until you befriended her. In ''Back To Nature (For Girl)'' and ''(More) Friends Of Mineral Town'' she lost virtually all of her attitude, is somewhat less of an alcoholic, and became a laid-back CoolBigSis.

** Gotz was Karen's aggressive father in ''64'' but is substantially nicer in other games.

* In the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series, the Grumpy and Snooty villagers have become nicer with each game. The grumpy villagers have gone from jaded jerks to just being rough on the edges, while snooty villagers have gone from narcissistic and elitist to kind but with refined tastes.

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature'' was originally an outsourced port of ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' however it eventually became its own game. Several characters [[NotAsYouKnowThem changed personalities]], both to this trope and the [[TookALevelInJerkass opposite]]:

** Also from the Zelda series is Groose from ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''. He starts off as a typical arrogant and pompous JerkJock who has it in for Link, but at one point he follows Link to the land below the clouds and witnesses Link fighting and resealing the game's SealedEvilInACan. Though he's at first disillusioned over his own apparent uselessness, he comes to respect Link and begins to grow considerably more noble, even becoming a crucial ally to Link in a number of boss battles.

Added DiffLines:

* Morte takes off a few of her rougher edges over the course of ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction''. While she's quite selfish and interested in nothing but the destruction of the world at the start, by the end she's capable of empathy, stating that if any of her team mates have a problem, it's her problem, too, and she will help solve it with [[GenkiGirl just as much gusto as she puts into solving her own issues]]. She even [[spoiler:recants her path of destruction, vowing to rebuild the world instead, and]] genuinely falls for Kyrie, instead of just seeing him as a PersonOfMassDestruction she could use for her own ends. She ''is'' still very impulsive and prone to acting without thinking, and still has a tough demeanor on the outside, but it's clear a softer heart has grown under there.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', Byakuya Togami is a condescending SmugSnake who participates in the killing game with a perverse sense of glee and makes it very clear he eventually intends to commit the perfect murder and graduate. In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', although he retains his condescending attitude, the first thing he does when everything goes to hell is to declare himself leader and promise that nobody will die under his watch. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out the Byakuya in the sequel is an impostor who gave the real Byakuya more credit than he deserves, but then double subverted when the real Byakuya risks his life in order to save the surviving protagonists.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Dante in ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' initially starts out as an uncaring, dick-ish guy. As the game progresses, however, [[spoiler: he begins to mature and his interactions with Kat, especially the lengths he goes to just to save her, are pretty much the best indications of him invoking this trope. By the end, he has inherited several of the [[Franchis/DevilMayCry old Dante's]] traits, kindness and sense of justice included.]] Dante, however, will still take the time to fling insults at his enemies.
