** As of Season 4 he's now a extraneously nice cat child (well the nicest [[CatsAreMean cats in media]] get) with a massive ego the size of Neptune who you can count on to help you out whether you want it or not and doesn't hesitate to be happy.



* Gumball Watterson from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' went from a stupid but kind kid to a sardonic snarky jerk to a slightly more likable kid to what he is now. A extraneously nice cat child (well the nicest [[CatsAreMean cats in media]] get) with a massive ego the size of Neptune who you can count on to help you out whether you want it or not. It helps that 2 episodes e.g. ''The Name'' The Downer'' were created to exorcise his bad qualities and negativity.

** In the episode "Hurricane Fluttershy", three episodes after we see Angel Bunny at his nastiest--he's comforting a distraught Fluttershy and helping her improve her flying.
*** While he's back to his jerky self in Just for Sidekicks, this can be attributed to his strong attachment to Fluttershy and the fact that Spike wasn't looking after him.
** Rainbow Dash TookALevelInKindness in "Call of the Cutie" where she eagerly helped Apple Bloom in an attempt to get her cutie mark. Unfortunately, that ended up being the Cutie Mark Crusader's [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Modus Operandi]].
*** Rainbow Dash TookALevelInKindness in the later half of Season 2 as well as Season 3. For example, Rainbow Dash originally had little patience dealing with [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy's]] meekness, considering Dash is generally a [[HotBlooded brash, impulsive speedster]] while Fluttershy is generally shy and withdrawn from pony society. Compared to Dragonshy, where Fluttershy's weaknesses drove Rainbow Dash crazy, in Hurricane Fluttershy, Dash patiently supported Fluttershy up to and including the very end, regardless of how Fluttershy performed. ThePowerofFriendship can greatly influence one's character. Another example is with [[HeroWorshipper Scootaloo]], whom Rainbow Dash initially dismissed as a "pipsqueak" in Owl's Well That Ends Well and treated as a garbage mare. In Sleepless In Ponyville and even in The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well when Dash suffered from AcquiredSituationalNarcissism, Dash developed sort of a CoolBigSis relationship with her as she was seen affectionately calling her a "squirt" and taking her under her wings. Her heart of gold expanded even more when Rainbow Dash, as daring and bold as she is, admonishes [[ShadowArchetype Lightning Dust,]] a pony with all Dash's jerk but none of her [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart of gold,]] for placing momentary accomplishments over the well-being of her friends and her fellow classmates in Wonderbolts Academy. Rainbow Dash showed even though she has done "nutty stuff", she has enough standards so as to never endanger anypony's lives. Rainbow Dash showed more of her heart of gold throughout the series.
*** Her CharacterDevelopment has been such that by Season 4's ''Flight to the Finish'' she's been asked by Ms. Harshwhinny herself to coach the young ponies of Ponyville to carry the flag for the Equestrian Games, making her something of a ReasonableAuthorityFigure.
*** And then in that same episode, as soon as Dash hears that Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom left their friend behind, she gently chews them out and rushes back to Ponyville to cheer up a dejected Scootaloo. Not only that, but despite listening to Harshwhinny's advice on being professional, she can hardly hold back her excitement of the Cutie Mark Crusaders routine.

* Klaus from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''.

to:

* Klaus The Ice King and The Earl of Lemongrab get these in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. The Ice King goes from being a villain to being a mere nuisance who tries to hang out with Finn and Jake because he wants to be their friend. Lemongrab [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming becomes a nicer person]] after Princess Bubblegum makes him a clone of himself so he won't be lonely and misunderstood- which leads to him releasing his prisoners who, apparently, no longer harbor any ill will towards him. In following episodes, Lemongrab is shown to be a little bit calmer and a little bit less resentful of other people.
** Later subverted, however, in the case of Lemongrab. He initially seems to be getting better after his clone is made (though still an asshole), but he takes a hard turn for the MoralEventHorizon in "Too Old".
* Gumball from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' started off as a NiceGuy but took several levels of jerkass in Season 2. Season 3 actually made him a genuinely nicer kid making him not mind helping others when he usually sighed and said fine in a disappointed manner or snarked against the person in a dickish uncaring matter. There was even a episode called "The Name" that basically extracted and ultimately destroyed his JerkWithAHeartOfJerk attitude! Every episode from there on Gumball basically averts CatsAreMean on a daily basis.
* Stan
from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''.



*** Even Roger seems to be getting ''slightly'' tamer. While he still has a few highly malicious moments, he does on occasion show genuine sympathy to the other Smiths (particularly Stan) and even shows capability of learning a Aesop (something he was previously [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk completely incapable of doing]]). At the very least he doesn't seem quite as outspokenly callous as he was in the third and fourth season.

a few highly malicious moments, RichBitch who at one point sent Kwan after Danny because he does on occasion show genuine sympathy accidentally ruined her sweater. Her dad losing her fortune turned her into a ghost hunter with a nasty vendetta against Danny Phantom. She soon moved past her shallow viewpoint, and became friends with Danny, to the other Smiths (particularly Stan) and point of breaking off a romantic relationship to protect ''him''.

** Though DependingOnTheWriter, he occasionally snaps back to being nice, then back to a jerk, and so on. This evolution had begun since the show's beginning. Even Season One Homer is a far more sentimental and devoted father in comparison to his counterpart in ''The Tracey Ullman Show'' shorts.
** And then there's "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily", where Homer promises to treat Ned Flanders less like a SitcomArchNemesis, complete with a SingleTear (this was in response to Ned's [[spoiler:wife dying in a freak accident]], so they had to make him act nicer toward Ned).

* Razer in ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' takes several levels in kindness over the course of the series. [[spoiler: His love for Aya and the hope in his heart call a Blue Power Ring to him at the end of the series.]]
* Count on Zhalia from ''WesternAnimation/HuntikSecretsAndSeekers'' being this when it comes to her [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosting]]. There's more; in episode 17, she goes from [[spoiler:[[TheMole spying]] for the Organization to [[BecomingTheMask joining the Huntik team for real]].]]
* June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' became this in season four. She still had some cynical moments, but she became a lot nicer.

* While more a difference in interpretation than a canonical evolution in personality, Eeyore in Disney's ''[[WesternAnimation/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]]'' {{Animated Adaptation}}s was given a much gentler persona in comparison to his original novel counterpart. This evolved to the point that [[TheEeyore Eeyore]] is distinguished as one of the most recognisable [[TheWoobie Woobies]] in WesternAnimation.
* Buford from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb,'' who was a bully in his first appearance, a PunchClockVillain in his second, and afterward only makes token attempts to pretend he doesn't like everybody else.
* Film historian Leonard Maltin notes that when MickeyMouse first arrived on the screens, he was hardly a model of good behaviour. Mickey soon evolved into TheEveryman, with the JerkAss torch being passed to DonaldDuck.
* June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' became this in season four. She still had some cynical moments, but she became a lot nicer.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', [[FatIdiot Muscle Man]] has undergone this. Formerly a JerkAss, he's become a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who views Mordecai and Rigby as friends.
** [[RunningGag You know who else views Mordecai and Rigby as friends?]]
** Everyone has undergone this development, basically. Benson has been more understanding of the duo after "Benson be Gone" and admits he doesn't hate them in "Busted Cart", and Mordecai only punches Rigby now when he says or does something stupid.
* [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]] goes from mean in the original shorts to nice in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
** Bugs in the latter goes from a KarmicTrickster [[UnscrupulousHero who enjoys his actions too much]] to a NiceGuy with DeadpanSnarker tendencies.

She does take yet another level in kindness in the next comic where she is an extremely patient, kind, and compassionate teacher.
