* [[TheHero Jake]] in James Cameron's ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' is one from the Na'vi's perspective, he was a human in a Na'vi body who was supposed to get the tribe to leave Hometree so that it could be destroyed by the humans to harvest the mineral mine beneath, similar to how TheAntiChrist is supposed to be a SemiDivine demon in human form who will lead humanity astray. Instead he ends the movie by becoming their MessianicArchetype and saving them from the human's AlienInvasion.

* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', [[spoiler:Dalinar]] was originally intended to be the champion of the evil god Odium, who arranged his life so that he would destroy all he loved so that he would fall into a pit of self-loathing, guilt, and hate that would make him easily manipulated. However, [[spoiler:Dalinar]] threw this plan for a loop when he [[spoiler:sought out another god, the Nightwatcher, to gain forgiveness and absolution for his crimes. The Nightwatcher temporarily erased his memories of his trauma so that he could grow and become mentally stronger, and when the memories returned, Dalinar had the willpower and moral fortitude to deny Odium's corrupting influence and become the champion of the forces opposing him.]]

** Speaking of Shadow he [[ZigZaggedTrope manages to be simultaneously be an example of]] a MessianicArchetype, a DarkMessiah, TheAntiChrist, and an AntiAntiChrist in one character, thanks to the people involved in his creation having wildly different intentions for him. [[note]][[ArmiesAreEvil GUN]] wanted an immortal SuperSoldier and took advantage of [[AllLovingHero Professor Gerald]], who was desperately looking for a way to save his [[IllGirl terminally ill granddaughter]] Maria. Unable to crack the code of immortality Gerald made contact with the [[StarfishAliens Black Arms]], whose leader, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Black Doom]], offered some of his genetic material for the project in exchange for a promise that Shadow would help him gather the [[GreenRocks Chaos Emeralds]] so he could [[PlanetLooters plunder Earth]] for HumanResources. Gerald didn't want Shadow to be a weapon and devised [[KillSat a plan]] which would allow him to defeat the Black Arms and let him become close to the [[AllLovingHero peace loving]] Maria. GUN got panicked by Gerald's research and tried to shut it down but Maria was killed in the crossfire. With her dying breath [[DeadLittleSister Maria]] [[LastRequest made Shadow promise]] to bring happiness to Earth. Learning of Maria's death Gerald crossed the DespairEventHorizon and JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope. He tampered with Shadow's memories to make him think he promised Maria revenge and the world would be better off without humans; the plan being to have Shadow initiate a ColonyDrop to take revenge on Earth and spite the Black Arms in one go. Ultimately, Shadow breaks free of the reprogramming, stops the colony drop, carries out the original plan for stopping the Black Arms, and joins GUN (which has since cleaned up its act) to protect Earth from danger and give humanity a chance to be happy.[[/note]]

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has everyone who assumes that the Phoenix is evil assume that [[spoiler: Harry]], if he isn't going to become to become the Dark Phoenix, will be this (while a lot just think he'll become TheAntiChrist). Complicating things is the fact that the Phoenix isn't evil - rather, she has a severe case of BlueAndOrangeMorality and is extremely volatile by definition (which is why She chooses hosts primarily for their stability and good judgement), and often has to ShootTheDog on a cosmic scale, which means that it's an understandable mistake. As it is, [[spoiler: Harry]] and the Phoenix get on just fine - [[spoiler: it helps that her main aspect, the White Phoenix of the Crown, is the late Lily Potter]] - though he would greatly prefer ''not'' to be burdened by the associated powers.


He's TheAntichrist, the spawn of {{Satan}}, a demon destined to bring about the doom of all men and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the end of all things]], but he just does not ''feel'' like it. [[IHateYouVampireDad Maybe the relationship between him and Dad is strained.]] Maybe he was [[RaisedByNatives raised by humans]] and [[UpbringingMakesTheHero shown the ways of love and justice.]] Perhaps there are just more interesting things to do? The sheer ''{{irony}}'' of [[RebelliousRebel the ultimate rebel's offspring rebelling against him]] is delicious. Likely they are only partly demonic and there is some humanity in them, influencing their very nature. Or maybe, they'd simply reply the way Hellboy would when someone tells him YouCantFightFate: "Says who?" Or perhaps they merely read Literature/TheBible and decided that being on the side that's [[ForegoneConclusion doomed to lose horribly]] is just a bad idea.

* Piccolo Junior from ''Manga/DragonBall'' was meant to carry on his father's legacy as Great Demon King, and take over the world. He's more interested in beating Goku in a fight, especially after their first encounter, going from major villain to {{jerkass}} {{antihero}}, and after spending one year raising Gohan, a rather likable nice guy. Interestingly, the French dub (and by extension all other dubs based on it) calls him The Younger Satan (his father was Satan the Heartless).

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' gives us a double subversion in the form of Jacen Solo, son of Han and Leia Solo. Jacen trained as a Jedi under his uncle, and he grew into a pacifist at the end of the Vong war. But he started walking a dark path after a five-year journey to learn more about the Force, and he eventually became a Sith. Jacen initially didn't like the idea of becoming a Sith, but he embraced his identity as the one to remake the galaxy more as time went on, even after all his family started leaving him. He ultimately went back into Anti-Antichrist territory to rescue his girlfriend and their daughter from the Empire, but before he could, his sister, Jaina, killed him. [[spoiler:His family's safe.]]

** Later episodes showed that the demons considered the end of days to simply include the extinction of all human life. Since there's plenty of non-human life and even non-human sapient/sentient life on Earth (indeed, in Ugly Americans it seems about 1/3rd of the Earth's population is supernatural), it actually is a bit grey.
