** In the same book, Changeling Fix [[spoiler:beats the crap out of the Winter Knight Lloyd Slate with a wrench after he mortally wounds Meryl.]]

*** The Summer Court in general is like this. [[TheHighQueen Titania herself]] appears to be more GoodIsNotNice (it's hard to tell what she's really like, since [[spoiler:Harry kinda killed her daughter]]), and more than a few of her subjects are flat-out TheFairFolk, but the Summer Knight, [[spoiler:the new Summer Lady, Lily]], [[spoiler: [[FriendlyEnemy Eldest Gruff]]]], and [[spoiler: [[PhysicalGod Mother Summer]]]] are lovely people who hold terrifying amounts of power and have no qualms about using it. Summer may have a kinder face than Winter, but it's no less dangerous.



** Not only is he a [[GoodShepherd sincerely faithful]] [[SaintlyChurch man of God]], Michael is an incredibly sweet, even-tempered NiceGuy. That being said, he is also a KnightInShiningArmor who slings a badass [[CoolSword holy sword that that can rip through evil magic like it was tissue paper]]. Do not mess with Michael. ''Ever''. And ''especially'' don't [[PapaWolf threaten his family]]. This applies to all of the Knights, actually...
** On messing with Michael and his family: If they don't get you, Harry will. The line: "Fuego, Pyrofuego! ''Burn!''" comes to mind. As this was the line said by Harry as he blasted a beam of possibly soulfire enhanced flame (the fires of creation), without a focus (which is serious) through a human posessed and wielding the full power of a fallen angel. It counts even more when you realise the last part of the line was an echo of something Superman said, when he completely flipped out at Mongul and used his heat ray vision on him. This makes it even scarier.

** To put this in perspective, remember that the Aiel are a people who live by honor above all else, to the point where some kill themselves over an act of dishonor. And they view beggars as possibly THE least honorable thing to be. Perrin is basically threatening the guy with a FateWorseThanDeath. The Aiel and his companions, who are members of what's known to be the most stubborn tribe out of all the Aiel (which is REALLY saying something), cave almost immediately.

* The nicest character in the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' is Perrin Aybara, a henpecked husband, that's basically his wife's bitch. In one memorable scene after [[spoiler:his wife has been kidnapped]] he chops off an Aiel's hand, orders an Aes Sedai to heal the stump, and then tells the Aiel that unless he talks Perrin will cut off his other hand and his feet, and then dump him into a town, so the Aiel can beg for a living. Then he walks away.

--->'''Molly Weasley''': [[spoiler:NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU ''[[PrecisionFStrike BITCH!]]'' She then proceeds to [[BeamSpam spam]] one spell: [[StunGun Stupefy.]] The kicker here? Stupefy's a spell meant only to stop, but Molly was ''so'' pissed off that when she eventually hit Bellatrix with one, it ''stunned her heart and killed her.'']]

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', there are several examples. Lampshaded with old nobleman Haverness, who has a reputation for being honourable to a fault, very traditional, and the only one at the decadent court who takes oaths really ''seriously''. He is known to be absolutely loyal to the king. [[spoiler: Until king Jakoven makes it clear that no, he will not provide help to defend Haverness' homeland Oranstone against bandit hordes. With which he breaks ''his'' side of the oath, and frees Haverness to start a revolution.]] Haverness is a good fighter and strategist, and so is his daughter.

* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'': Erin is very friendly, and hates killing even when it's necessary to save her life. But when she ''does'' decide to fight, she doesn't hesitate.
-->'''Erin''': I donít enjoy it. I hope I never will. But I can kill things. Other monsters, or even people. Not just dead people either. If it came down to it, I could kill someone trying to kill me.
** {{Inverted}} with Ryota, who, despite being an extremely unfriendly character, discovers she doesn't have any killer instinct when she goes DungeonCrawling.

* In RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/HaveSpaceSuitWillTravel'', the Mother Thing is gentle, soft spoken and eternally pleasant, with a small, frail looking body and enormous lemur like eyes. She also is fully capable of building a pair of bombs to destroy an alien base under her captors' noses and kill all of its personnel to guarantee her, Kip and Peewee's escape.

* In the ''Literature/Cut and Run'' and ''Sidewinder'' series, Kelly Abbott is the smallest and sweetest member of Team Sidewinder and is basically the baby of the team. He is also the one that every other member of Sidewinder says you don't want to piss off.



* [[Leterature/CutAndRun Kelly Abbott]] is a sweetheart. He's a medic, he works with underprivileged kids, and Nick has flat out called him {{The Heart}} of Sidewinder. He's also the member of Sidewinder none of them have beaten in a brawl, despite being the smallest, held his ground against a trained hitman, and once suggested [[ItMakesSenseInContext raiding a dead body for its liver.]]
