* ''WesternAnimation/TheNutJob'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheNutJob2NuttyByNature''. first Surly ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone inadvertently destroying the tree]]), then nearly every other hero at the Park (sans Andie and Buddy) ([[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness not realizing that Raccoon should be the one to get what he deserves]]), then Mr. Feng throughout the sequel.
** Don't forget Precious and Frankie.
* ''WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas''. First Proteus, Then Titular Arabian Knight himself, then Eris at the climax of the film.
** However, Eris' HeelFaceTurn counts as a HeelFaceDoorSlam for her actions against Syracuse.
* Metaphorial in ''WesternAnimation/TheMissingLynx'' has Gus, Betty, Astarte, and Rupert, plus the Wolf Leader. Gus for his paranoia and envy on Betty. The latter for always putting a fight with Gus. Astarte for having a retributive nature on Nimrod. Rupert for nearly turncoating Felix's gang. Wolf Leader for his misanthropic nature.
** Also, there's Noah for [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone striking a deal with a]] [[EvilPoacher sinister hunter]].
* [[spoiler:Rufus & Thaddeous]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheStar''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark[[TheMovie : Bigger, Longer, and Uncut]]'', {{Satan}} turns when he kills Saddam Hussein and returns his legions of demons back to Hell in favor of Kenny for giving self-confidence of standing up against Saddam.
** Shiela does one after [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone inadvertently triggering hell on Earth]]..
* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'': Diego the sabre-toothed tiger spends most of the film trying to steal a baby so his boss can eat him; at the end [[spoiler:he sacrifices himself to protect the babysitters]].
** [[spoiler: Shira, his LoveInterest and DistaffCounterpart in fourth movie]].
* Sour Kangaroo and, to an extent, Vlad from ''WesternAnimation/HortonHearsAWho'' WordOfGod says that Sour Kangaroo was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally meant to have a satisfactory comeuppance]], but due to it being against Dr. Seuss' wishes about peace and friendship, she ultimately makes this instead.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' General Rogard went through this moment when Hogarth, Dean and the Giant (Technically the Giant and Hogarth the ones) convinced them that Rockfeller will be in danger if the missile is activated. It finally seems the culprit Kent Mansley has already gone too far this time when he took one shot ordering the launching of the missile.
* [[spoiler:Mutant Toys]] of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''.
* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. First Stitch himself, and then Jumba.
** In ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', almost each episode focuses on Lilo and Stitch's attempts to rehabilitate one of the other 625 escaped experiments. [[spoiler:Captain Gantu]] has one in the GrandFinale [[WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch film]].
* [[spoiler:Molt]] in ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''.
* Mirage in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' stops supporting Syndrome because he WouldHurtAChild and he doesn't care for her. She instead aids the heroes in their escape from Nomanisan Island.
* In ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', Kovu, and later on [[spoiler: the rest of the Outlanders]] realize that what Zira is doing is wrong.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'', [[spoiler:Anton Ego rediscovers his love of food after tasting Remy's cooking, and goes from vindictive food critic to Alfredo and Remy's financial backer.]]
* [[spoiler:Dr. Tenma]] in the 2009 ''WesternAnimation/AstroBoy'' film. [[spoiler:Tenma spends the first two-thirds of the movie acting like a king ass, blatantly telling Astro he doesn't want him and kicking him out, and later helping the crazy politician that wants to kill him. Tenma then has a change of heart, risking his own life and freedom to save his "son".]]
* This is the {{reconstructed}} plot culmination of ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''. [[spoiler: With [[TheCape Metroman]] gone, supervillainy is too easy, so Megamind creates a new Cape to oppose... who promptly becomes DrunkWithPower. Between the city being destroyed and [[LoveRedeems the growing affections]] of the local [[CaptainErsatz Lois Lane character]] Megamind finds himself drawn to the side of good, especially after Hal, her former cameraman, turns out to be a ''much'' bigger threat than he was.]]
* Iago from Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' spent the entirety of the first film on Jafar's side. The beginning of the second film, ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', sees Iago escape from Jafar's lamp and slowly turn face over the course of the movie, even [[spoiler:offing Jafar for good by kicking his lamp into magma]]. Not that Iago's [[AntiHero all that heroic]], but his conscience does get the better of him on a number of occasions. He grumbles over it a lot.
** ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' also gives us StalkerWithACrush Sadira, who gets over her crush on Aladdin and becomes a friend of the main characters even though she had once swapped places with Jasmine, ''taking over Agrabah'' (but no-one but Iago, Abu, and Rajah remember this.) And Queen Hippsodeth, who kidnaps Jasmine for her [[AmazonBrigade all-female warrior nation]] and then becomes Agrabah's ally because she admires the sultan for being the first person who could defeat her. [[HighHeelFaceTurn None of the male villains change sides though.]]
*** There are ''some'' male turns in the series. There was the Muchtar, and Aladdin's old friend-turned-monster Amal.
* Like Iago, ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' has a character who starts off rotten to the core in the original movie, and then turns in the sequel, this being Anastasia. The first sequel, ''Disney/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue'', has her as one of the protagonists in "An Uncommon Romance", where Cinderella [[LoveRedeems helps her win the heart of a baker she falls in love with]]. But the third movie, ''Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime'', has her start things off by stealing the Fairy Godmother's magic wand and handing it to her mother. From that point on, she poses as the one who the prince fell in love with...and her conscience slowly gets the better of her as she realizes what love really means until, at the end of the film, she can no longer go along with Lady Tremaine's plan, and openly defies her. As such, she's the only one of the three Tremaines [[RedemptionEqualsLife whose story ends with a happily ever after]].
** Unfortunately, this wasn't the case in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' whereas Anastasia lets her hatred of Cinderella after fitting the glass slippers turn into an Unversed and [[DeathByAdaptation get killed]] [[KillItWithFire messily]], this time [[NeverLiveItDown being remembered]] as [[MoralEventHorizon an irredeemable monster]] through and through. This is unlike Iago above, who kept his HeelFaceTurn in the game eventually. Then again, the events of the game happened during the first movie's events and she was not given the chance to feel what love really means, meaning the idea of HeelFaceTurn hasn't really crossed her mind (rather than rejecting the chance).
* Subverted with [[spoiler:Tai Lung]] in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', who [[WellDoneSonGuy after finally hearing his father-figure tell him he's proud of him, and he's sorry]], very clearly wavers before rejecting the overture and remaining unrepentant. This probably also counts as his WhatAnIdiot moment, since it proves he has still learned nothing, though it may just be all the more tragic and painful because of it.
* King Harold has one in ''WesternAnimation/Shrek2''. After seeing how much Fiona hates Prince Charming and only has eyes for Shrek, he feels guilty for not taking his daughter's feelings into consideration and decides to go back on his promise to the Fairy Godmother.
* Ken starts out as one of the toys trying to keep the gang imprisoned, but he changes sides after [[LoveRedeems he falls in love with Barbie]].
** Subverted definitely with [[spoiler: Lotso]]. Played straight with the rest of the Sunnyside toys.
* This is the plot of the animated film ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''.
* ''Franchise/CareBears''
** In ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsMovie'', Nicholas is talked out of being TheDragon for the evil book by ThePowerOfFriendship.
** Dark Heart turns good at the end of ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsMovieIIANewGeneration'', when he admits he cares about Christy in order to save her.
* In ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', [[spoiler:Audrey, Sweet, Mole, Vinny, Cookie and Ms. Packard]] join Milo after [[spoiler:it is revealed that they were EvilAllAlong]].
* [[AnIcePerson Winter Warlock]] from the Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}}'s WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown changes from bad to good after Kris gives him a present. The entire song "Put One Foot In Front of the Other" is about how changing from bad to good is as easy as taking your first step.
* Percy in Disney/{{Pocahontas}}.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', first [[spoiler:Good/Bad Cop]] then [[spoiler:Lord Business]].
** [[spoiler:The Joker and Gotham Criminals]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie''
** [[spoiler:Lord Garmadon, later Ninjago Students]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGONinjagoMovie''
* Maximus from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Starts off as a horse that is too persistent and smart to capture Flynn Rider and bring him to justice. After being forced to stick together by Rapunzel, he started to grudgingly befriend Flynn, and when Flynn was in trouble by his superior and Rapunzel might be in danger, Maximus betrays his human superiors by calling forth the ruffians he helped arrest before to save Flynn and eventually take him to Rapunzel for the climax.
* Done by [[spoiler:Mr. Pickles and Mr. Trout]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoxtrolls''. Averted with [[spoiler:Snatcher and Mr. Gristle.]]
* Xibalba in ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', [[spoiler:after Manolo bests him in his final test.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'', [[spoiler:Bubbles goes from trying to kill Spongebob and Plankton to helping them stop Burger-Beard]].
* In Franchise/DisneyFairies ''Great Fairy Rescue'', Vidia turns good after leading Silvermist, Rosetta, Fawn, Iridessa, Clank and Bobble to rescue Tinker Bell from humans, and even ''risks her life'' to save Tinker Bell from being taken to a a museum to be pinned to a display case. Tink returns the favour and now Vidia is not only a SixthRanger, but also TheLancer of the group.
* Speaking of Fairies, There's one in ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic''. Bog King once believed Love is a disease until Marianne saw good in him and they fell in Love. Also there's the Fairy King after he [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone chose an unworthy and pompous suitor, Roland for Marianne]]
* [[spoiler:Gideon]] from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', though not onscreen. [[spoiler:He was a pretty vicious bully as a kid, and was the reason why Judy developed some prejudice against foxes. However when Judy meets him again as an adult, he had grown into a much kinder person, and he apologizes to her for how he used to be]].
** Nick Wilde is considered another example. Revealed because he has been tortured by Anti-Predator "Nazis" moments before his escape, forcing him to become an Anti-Hero in the process.
* Interestingly, despite Creator/{{Disney}}'s kid-friendly reputation, there are only two {{Big Bad}}s in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon to turn face (so far):
** ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'': Amos Slade and Chief are both shown to be capable of being caring, nice characters, being either {{Anti Hero}}es or {{Anti Villain}}s [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation depending on the viewer]]. However, they both become officially good at the end, where Amos tries to shoot the weak Tod, but because he had just saved them both from a [[BearsAreBadNews very giant grizzly bear]], Copper steps in between Amos' gun & Tod refuses to move away, and [[HeelRealization Amos lowers his gun, realizing his mistake and accepting the fox as a hero]].
** ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' has John Silver, whose paternal bond with Jim eventually drives him to [[FriendOrIdolDecision sacrifice a boatload of gold to save Jim's life]].
* ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' has a version of this with shades of GoodAllAlong when Moana and Maui realize that [[spoiler: the monster they have to defeat to save Te Fiti ''is'' Te Fiti, and once she receives the stone back, she immediately becomes a gentle goddess again.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'': [[spoiler: Tempest Shadow, after [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness being betrayed by the Storm King]] and [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe rescued by Twilight Sparkle]], ends up siding with the Mane Six, even saving them from the Storm King's final attack.]]
