* Leliana from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is a sweet, fluffy, girly girl who used to be a nun. She wants to show mercy to practically every sentient being you meet that isn't a soulless husk of pure rampaging evil, and the main character loses her approval every time s/he chooses an evil or selfish action. She's also a retired spy/assassin who's killed more people than she can even remember and can be leveled up into one of the single most devastating ranged attackers possible in the game.

* Ah, [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Cole]]. InnocentlyInsensitive , sweet, physical-manifestation-of-mercy Cole. Who happens to wield a pair of daggers and is trained as an ''assassin'' so he can kill people as quickly and painlessly as possible. And don't you ''dare'' hurt innocent people or animals in front of him without a good reason.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': Fon Master Ion is polite and friendly to a fault (and is [[DudeLooksLikeALady rather feminine looking]]), but he wields some of the most powerful fonic artes in existence. Not only that, he's also one of the most powerful people in the world politically, and knows how to use that power effectively when push comes to shove...like the time when he threatened to stop reading the Score (the giant prophecy that everyone relies on to determine what they should do, often on a daily basis) for an entire country if any of his companions are harmed.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'':
*** Eleanor Hume is a sweet and gentle girl with IncorruptiblePurePureness who joined the exorcists to help people and (before she joins the party) is distracted from chasing Velvet several times because she's doing random odd jobs for civilians. Once she joins the party, she spends most of her time patching up everyone's clothes and trying to get them to help bystanders. However, when she meets the demon who killed her mother, she goes absolutely ''berserk'', flying into a blind rage and nearly turning into a demon herself.
---->'''Eleanor:''' I hate you I hate you ''I HATE YOU!''
*** Velvet herself, though we only see her "nice" state a few times, such as at the beginning of the game. [[UsedToBeASweetKid She was a friendly girl]] living with her brother-in-law and working to provide for her sick little brother until she witnessed her brother-in-law murder her brother, and the rage turned her into a demon. In fact, she's [[NotSoDifferent nearly identical to Eleanor]], except she's been stuck in a berserk rage for ''years''.
---->'''Velvet:''' Why did you kill him?! His blood... on your hands... Answer me! Answer me! WHY?! He was my brother! My Laphi! What did he ever do?! GET OUT OF MY WAY!

* Selphie of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. She's a cute, perky, friendly sixteen-year-old GenkiGirl. She's also a trained mercenary with a highly-developed sense of [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill overkill]], and if you make her mad, she'll see to it that you become a smear of red gel on the pavement. Or, if you make her ''really'' mad, she'll ''[[TheTwilightZone wish you into the cornfield]]'' with her [[LimitBreak Limit]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "The End"]].

* ''SuperMarioBros'': Luigi is generally a pretty nice guy. If you threaten to harm Mario, he becomes [[TheDeterminator an unstoppable force]]. To whit, in ''MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'', when Mario looks to be in extreme danger in the Dream World, Dreamy Luigi [[MakeMyMonsterGrow grows giant]] and in one case, slams backwards ''a sentient volcano only with his hammer!'' Even more impressive, Dreamy Luigi is [[StrongerThanTheyLook able to hold his own]] against [[spoiler:''Giant'' Giant Bowser. As in, Giant Bowser made even more giant to the point where Giant Luigi barely comes up to his ''knee''.]] The last Giant Battle is activated not by fear but by sheer willpower as well.

* ''WorldOfWarcraft'''s Draenei are often stereotyped as [[LawfulGood goody-two-shoes]]. However, [[http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=9711 this Bloodmyst Isle quest]] requires players to capture the zone boss's chief flunky. In a cut scene after the quest is complete, the flunky repeatedly taunts a Draenei [[KnightInShiningArmor paladin]] NPC [[spoiler:by [[KickTheDog bragging about how he tortured the paladin's mentor]]]]. The paladin snaps [[spoiler:and [[OneHitKill strikes the flunky dead on the spot]]]].

** Piper is a cute IntrepidReporter who's just trying to uncover the truth behind things in the Commonwealth while taking care of her younger sister. Which in a place as dangerous as the Commonwealth means that she's ''really'' good with a gun.

** The Warden. Perhaps he/she is the most nice and friendly person in Thedas, but that doesn't stop her/him to kill everyone stupid enough to annoying him/her. One example is [[spoiler: during DragonAgeAwakening, when a group of Howe's former allies attempt a coup against The Warden. If The Warden took the Dark Wolf's way, such group of traitors suffers a lot of dissapareances and deadly accidents until their leader's suicide]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has many examples, what with its tagline of 'Friendly RPG'. That said, one example stands above the rest: [[spoiler:Sans the Skeleton.]] They may be chill and friendly, if a bit childish, but one glance and you can tell there's more to them than meets the eye. If you want to find out just how deep, go for the [[OmnicidalManiac No Mercy route]], but remember: ''[[SNKBoss You're gonna have a BAD time.]]

* Nanashi, the player character of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' can be this if the player chooses the good aligned dialogue choices. He's a kind, supportive ally who helps his friends in their time of need. He's also an unstoppable undead Godslayer who cuts a huge swath out of at least two armies and kills their respective leaders in less than ''two weeks''. [[spoiler: If the player picks the Massacre route, Nanashi moves into AffablyEvil territory. Beware, for the NiceGuy can also be an OmnicidalManiac...]]
