What's the difference between this trope and Heel-Face turn? I think it's redundant.

A villain who Took a Level in Kindness can still be villainous (going from, say, Axe Crazy to Affably Evil or Noble Demon), and a Good Is Not Nice good guy character who Took a Level in Kindness and stop being a jackass while already being a good guy.

The position as villain/hero can remain the same.

Can this trope be in play and avert Badass Decay? I think it can but probably can't think of any amazing examples apart from Spike in Angel (not Buffy, that's where he was once the former Trope Namer for Badass Decay).

The two tropes are not related. E.g. you can gain a level in kindness and badass by kicking evil butt to save a puppy when you used to be evil.
