Top 10 evil characters who are the most likely to turn good


As requested by anon. :) And also anon. ;)


Yesterday I considered which good characters were the most likely turn turn to the dark side. Now it’s time to consider the reverse - which bad characters are the most likely to have a change of heart and (re)join the protagonists?

Note: I’ve included dead characters, on the assumption that they might have turned if they had lived. I have not, however, included characters who already “turned” (so no Grimmjow or Ginjo).


1. HASCHWALD (Juha Bach’s second-in-command)

Why we should be hopeful:

Because he stopped Juha Bach from doing more damage, and then stopped Ichigo from attacking Juha Bach (and maybe from getting killed). Also he’s the big bad’s second-in-command. And we know what that means.

What could trigger the change:

Um…probably something in his back story. Maybe a lady.

What would happen next:

He tries to kill Juha Bach. Juha Bach kills him. Haschwald and Gin become BFFs in the afterlife.


2. GIN

Why we should be hopeful:

Well…he was secretly good after all. He just died before he could officially resign from Aizen (although I guess maybe stabbing your boss counts as a resignation).

What could trigger the change:

The sudden realization that all Matsumoto really wanted from him was for him NOT to leave all the time.

What would happen next:

Gin goes into hiding. But Matsumoto knows where.


3. TOSEN

Why we should be hopeful:

Because he seemed to be coming around right before he died, so if he hadn’t died…

What could trigger the change:

Realizing that Komamura and Hisagi are way better friends than Aizen and Gin ever were.

What would happen next:

Tosen decides he wants to be a soul reaper again. This involves a little jail time, followed by probation in Komamura’s custody.


4. ULQUIORRA

Why we should be hopeful:

He was starting to understand Orihime at the end…and understanding that humans aren’t trash after all is the first step toward joining them, right?

What could trigger the change:

Being healed by Orihime after losing to Ichigo. You know, instead of turning to dust.

What would happen next:

Realizing that Aizen isn’t the best boss ever, Ulquiorra decides to help in the fight. Ichigo’s entrance into Fake Karakura Town becomes much weirder (“It’s Ichigo!! And also a…hollow?”)


5. HALIBEL

Why we should be hopeful:

Because Halibel’s kingdom is currently being overrun by Quincy. She has every reason to want to team up with the shinigami.

What could trigger the change:

Getting freed from jail by Urahara & co.

What would happen next:

Halibel and Urahara make a hollow/shinigami alliance. And it’s awesome.


6. STARRK

Why we should be hopeful:

Because Starrk never seemed to have any real animosity toward the shinigami. He didn’t want to fight. He just wanted, um, friends I guess.

What could trigger the change:

Being spared by Kyoraku - followed by Aizen getting put into prison, thus freeing Starrk from any motivation to be fighting shinigami.

What would happen next:

Starrk and Lilinette lead peaceful Hueco Mundo lives for a while. When Halibel tells them to join her anti-Quincy army, Starrk sighs and says okay.


7. RIRUKA

Why we should be hopeful:

She saved Rukia and Ichigo. She’s basically turned already. She just left instead of officially joining Team Good.

What could trigger the change:

Riruka realizes that the Quincy are a threat to the whole universe and comes back to the plot to help in the fight.

What would happen next:

Some versy confused Quincy find themselves assaulted by hearts and locked into boxes.


8. NNOITRA

Why we should be hopeful:

All Nnoitra wanted was to fight a lot and get strong. So basically he could have joined Squad 11 and done pretty well.

What could trigger the change:

Realizing that with Aizen gone, there aren’t that many good fights available in Hueco Mundo any more. So he joins the shinigami to get more and better opportunities for fighting (you may recognize this as Kenpachi’s motivation for becoming captain).

What would happen next:

He tries to attack Yachiru one time. Then he learns why nobody fucking attacks Yachiru (hint: she has secret power).


9. SHISHIGAWARA

Why we should be hopeful:

Because he’s adorable and floppy. And really just seemed like a good dude at heart.

What could trigger the change:

He needs a new mentor after Tsukishima’s death. And, well, Ikkaku seems cool…

What would happen next:

Ikkaku sends Shishigawara on a LOT of long-distance, long-term training missions.

 
10. AIZEN

Why we should be hopeful:

Because Aizen turned down the Quincy. And there’s that whole “enemy of my enemy is my friend” thing. And surely Tite Kubo kept Aizen alive for a reason.

What could trigger the change:

Soul Society realizes that they need something that only Aizen knows - or something only he can do. They ask him for help. He looks smug and mutters “just as planned” under his breath.

What would happen next:

Aizen helps Ichigo defeat the Quincy. Then he convinces Ichigo to take on the Soul King next. Because it turns out Aizen was right all along.
