** In Cataclysm, there is the Shaman Erunak Stonespeaker within Vashj'ir. Very polite, saves your life a couple times, and doesn't seem very condusive to combat. Indeed, he doesn't get any combat...[[spoiler:until the end quest. Then, he utterly [[OneHitKO OBLITERATES]] each force of Naga, one force with a MASSIVE Chain Lightning, and one commander simply by SLAMMING ITS FACE WITH HIS AXE.]] Believe me. You do NOT want to mess with this guy.
** Cairne Bloodhoof, former chieftan of the Tauren. Very calm and peaceful guy. Kicked the ass of ''Warchief Garrosh Hellscream'' until treachery saw the end of his life. His son, Baine Bloodhoof, is basically the same way.

** Generally speaking, any named character who's notably kind is anywhere from rather powerful to a PhysicalGod. Most notable is Alexstrasza the Life Binder. Nicest dragon you'll ever meet who even forgave the orcs as a whole for enslaving her and her children during the Second War. Also the second most powerful dragon (after Deathwing) who will not hesitate to burn you to ash if she has to.

* Spiritia Rosenberg of ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' counts for this trope as well. Despite being [[IdiotHero naive as well as a terrible swimmer]], she's generally a nice girl with moral convictions that are second to none. Then her colleagues start a war against the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Empire]] to build a world just for Magi, all the while burning down the forest that was home to the fairies and where Tia was training at for six months for that in the process. Her response? Plow her way through dozens of monsters, demons, and TheUndead and battle and defeat her colleagues themselves in a SwiperNoSwiping deal to [[DefeatMeansFriendship get them to listen to her and follow her ideals]], all leading up to Graf Michael Sepperin himself. But, [[RightForTheWrongReasons she doesn't even know that]] [[spoiler:Iris, being the MagnificentBastard she is, started the war [[ForTheEvulz for kicks without any regrets for doing so whatsoever]], all according to her plan to [[AGodAmI become a god herself]]. Once she finally learns the truth about the war from her, she retaliates by chasing after her and, with [[ThePowerOfFriendship everyone's love and support for her]], [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu whup her ass despite her godlike powers]]]].

* ''{{VideoGame/Halo}}'': Cortana is this, with ''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach'' in particular demonstrating that while she may be a nice if somewhat snarky AI, she ''will'' transfer you to the front line and ruin your marriage if you do ''anything'' to mess with her or John.

* The ''{{VideoGame/Halo}}'' novels confirm this for Cortana. She's a nice, somewhat snarky, AI who will get you transferred onto the front line and ruin your marriage if you mess with her or John.

* Humans are this in the {{backstory}} to ''VideoGame/GalacticCivilizations''. Just as the Xendar... Oh wait, you can't. Why? Because they're all dead. Apparently, not long after humanity stupidly gave the hyperdrive secret to the other races, the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Drengin]] decided to get rid of humanity, whom they perceived to be a race of [[HumansAreDiplomats diplomats]]. Instead of attacking humanity directly, they found a warlike pre-spaceflight race called the Xendar. Quickly [[TechnologyUplift upgrading their tech]] to the galactic level, they unleashed them on humanity, expecting humans to try to talk their way out of it in vain. Instead, the Terran Alliance cranked up the military-industrial complex and beat the Xendar so hard, there are none left. After this, the humans put away their weapons and start talking peace again. The Drengin treat this event as evidence that humans are liars, talking peace while secretly planning for war.

* The Liir from ''SwordOfTheStars'' are mainly kind, understanding {{Actual Pacifist}}s. Until you piss them off. We'd call in the survivors of [[AbusivePrecursors the last race to piss off the Liir]] as witnesses to this, but none appear to be alive as the Liir wiped them off the face of the Galaxy ([[spoiler:although they appear to be back come the sequel]]). In-game, the Liir start out extremely positively towards all races except the Zuul and are very easy to placate as long as you keep the peace with them -- but if they first get annoyed enough at you to start a war, you'll never get them to back down again: They'll come at you until you or them are dead.

[[spoiler:Then the sequel rolls around, and we find out that the Suul'ka, the race that conquered the Liir and pushed them to this state of mind were their own crazed elders with powerful PsychicPowers. That's right, the AbusivePrecursors that everyone lives in fear of are the Liir themselves]].

* The partner character from ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' is a CheerfulChild of the highest caliber and while they are content to simply explore the world to fulfill their dream of map making, they are more than willing to stand up for and rescue anyone in danger, including the school bullies. But then come the second half of the game that piles on various traumas onto them, [[spoiler: followed by coming across one of Dark Matter's minions who turned their adoptive father into stone. They immediately beat him up almost to the point of unconsciousness.]]

* ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos'' has Lyude's finisher, Sforzando, which is based on this. The game describes it as Lyude "giving in to his rage, usually kept in check by rationale." What you see is Lyude leaping forward and viciously '''pistol-whipping''' his opponent so hard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tyZO5Kppu4 he actually staggers backwards when he's finished.]]

* The orcs from ''VideoGame/OrcAttackFlatulentRebellion'' were actually kindhearted beasts who lived in peace, until the humans showed up, polluted their land, and got all the orcs sick. They immediately went to arms and fought back against the humans as payback for ruining their ecosystem.
