** During ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All'', Adrian Andrews is introduced as an aloof, disinterested manager for Matt Engarde who is quick to brush people off and scoff. Come ''Trials & Tribulations'', the sequel, she's shed that and become a cheerful employee of Lordly Tailor who smiles at everyone (at least when she's not panicking as a CuteClumsyGirl).
** Ema Skye managed to slide all the way from one end of the scale to the other and then back again. In the original game's fifth case, she's introduced as a 15 year-old forensic investigator-to-be with all the enthusiasm in the world (this is also the characterization used in the ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations]]'' games). Seven years later, in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', she TookALevelInJerkass and acts like a belligerent grump to newcomer Apollo Justice, frustrated her career got sidetracked and that she's stuck in criminal affairs (though she still pursues forensic science with her younger self's enthusiasm under the radar). Come ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'', she's now completed her forensics qualification exam and is working as a full-time forensic investigator, once more cheerful and enthusiastic about her work.

* The rival Silver from ''Videogame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', as well as ''Crystal'' and the remakes, full stop. He is initially a cruel, harsh young man and an ArrogantKungFuGuy in every sense of the word, but after many crushing defeats courtesy of the player and in one instance Lance, he eventually becomes friendlier towards the player and his own Pokémon - to the point where his Golbat evolves into a Crobat after reaching high happiness. This is upped even more in the remakes, where he takes several levels in it to the point that by the time he battles the player in the Indigo League, any antagonism towards the player in his speech is gone, and he reacts to losing with nothing but almost doting concern for his Pokemon and words of encouragement for the player.

** Blue was a JerkAss in ''Videogame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', but thanks to CharacterDevelopment, maturing, and getting his butt handed to him by [[PlayerCharacter Red]] followed by a ReasonYouSuckSpeech from his grandfather Professor Oak, he becomes less so by ''Gold'', ''Silver'', and ''Crystal'', despite his arrogant streak still being there due to it being a fundamental part of his character. He matures even more by ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'', now a GracefulLoser who wholeheartedly congratulates the player upon being defeated.

* Adelbert Steiner from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' starts out as the most reluctant member of the party, only going along to protect Princess Garnet. He has a big grudge against Zidane for "kidnapping" her (it's complicated) and for being a no-good scoundrel, but he eventually realizes that Zidane is actually a good person.
** Lightning from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. She starts off as rather cold to her comrades, especially Snow, her future brother-in-law, to a [[BigGood full blown hero]] later in the game and in the sequel ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2''. Fang also goes through similar development.

* 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.]]

* 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.
