* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has Grace, super cute pacifist who just [[InnocentFanserviceGirl wishes people were less uptight about nudity.]] You can tie her up, torture her, even tell her you are going to use her for a ''breeding'' program. Make her believe you have hurt one of her friends though and there is [[SuperSoldier no power on Earth or beyond that can save you]].
** In the author's own words:
--->'''Dan Shive''': There is nothing more dangerous in any universe being written by me than a nice character who's been [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=530/ pushed over the edge.]] And Grace is really, REALLY nice.
** To not quite as potent an extent, Elliot. He's extremely nice and by default helpful. Of course, mocking Tedd or any of his friends changes things.
** And now, we learn, Noah. Not only do his [[ViewerGenderConfusion girly looks]] hide inhuman strength and speed, but his [[SpockSpeak particular speech patterns]] are a deliberate focusing mechanism to keep control of an otherwise short temper.



* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** Gilgamesh Wulfenbach is a genius who never even bothered to build a death ray, and who will put up with massive annoyance to avoid killing people he neither likes nor respects, but when an enemy army really gets in his way, he smashes it in about five seconds.
*** What happens when he gets angry at someone? He [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060306 kicks serious ass.]]
*** He even stands up against an ex-[[SuperSoldier Jägermonster]] in [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080303 this]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080305 scene]].
*** He [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071126 deals with]] an invasion force against Mechanicsburg while his father is in the hospital in that city. Alone, with a lightning gun.
*** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090323 "If I let everyone I thought was an idiot die, there wouldn't be many people left."]]
** Agatha starts out as a clueless student, then she starts [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]] as she realizes her sparkiness and gets fighting lessons from Zeetha. She is still generally a nice one, but you don't want to make her angry. [[spoiler: Killing her boyfriend]] is especially [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070117 not a good idea]].
** Higgs might seem like a [[TheStoic stoic]] who though MadeOfIron and perfectly capable of fighting does so calmly, is not exempt from this either after [[spoiler: [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20101020 Zeetha gets stabbed through the chest by Zola]]]].
** Tarvek isn't exactly a "[[TheChessmaster nice one]]", given his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, but the one and only time we ever saw him be violent, it was a staged fight that both parties got a little too into. [[spoiler: So ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110117 this]]'' got quite the "Holy shit!" reaction from the fandom.]]

* Played strait in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfGyro'', the Disney comic parody. In the story Gyro Gearloose - the nices person in Duckburg snaps for no reason, start kidnapping children, destroys characters property, burns down Scrooge's Money Bin, kills Magica De Spell by burning her alive and tires to butcher few more characters. Since Gyro is usualy the most plesant character nobody even suspects him of making such terrible things...

* Tony of ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' is one of the nicest and definitely the most laid back of those living in the cabin and its subterranean chambers, opposed to killing humans and sentient monsters without the mental instability Zeno projects. This does not mean it's a good idea to nail him down with ColdIron, steal his [[HatOfPower tarnkappe]] and go after his friends even if the attack should leave Tony powerless. As a matter of fact Tony implies that just being pinned with ColdIron was enough to put him in a murderous state of mind.

* ''WebComic/{{Niels}}'': Agent 300 is a suave, gentlemanly, laid-back AgentPeacock who, while not a paragon of morality, is still one of the nicer characters in the comic, especially compared to the title character. He will rain swift and terrible retribution on anyone who dares to [[spoiler: try and murder [[ClosetKey Agent 250]]]].

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': Tuuri is usually TheCutie, but mentions her weight and she'll make you pay, even if you are a child. She also gets a manipulative younger sibling side identified by Mikkel when she directs it towards him.

** Elan is mostly naive, sweet-natured but [[TheDitz ditzy]] {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Elan in strip [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0594.html #594]], after SmugSnake Kubota poisons his lackey Therkla (who was in the midst of a HeelFaceTurn) and she [[DiedInYourArmsTonight dies in Elan's arms]]; UnstoppableRage-driven BadAss. It's only Kubota's swift-but-slimy opportunism that prevents him from getting a severely lethal ass-kicking at Elan's hands, [[spoiler: and even then he still gets reduced to dust by V]].
