* [[SonicTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]] gets this a lot. Seriously, a [[TheStoic stoic]] [[PerpetualFrowner perpetually frowning]] [[NinetiesAntiHero anti-hero]] loner in a video game series with cute cartoon animals ([[BadassAdorable despite being one himself]]).
** Knuckles the Echidna falls under this, too. Especially in SonicX.

* ''Videogame/DonkeyKongCountry'''s Cranky Kong is probably video gamehood's very first grumpy bear, being an insufferable old geezer who, in between whacks with a cane, would go on and on about how much things were better in his day ("[[WhenIWasYourAge We only had a joystick and a single button! And we]] ''[[WhenIWasYourAge liked it!]]''"), and how overblown the game is. In the animated series, when he goes on a vacation in one episode, DK suggests that he's having an awful time because there's (As Diddy puts it) 'no one to grouch at'.

* ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'''s Dylas can't believe the townspeople completely accept a "sourpuss" like himself.

* Though the Franchise/FinalFantasy series usually have [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack-y enough settings]] that the team [[TheCynic cynic]] is more than justified. But aside from the Galbadian dictatorship, Squall Leonhart of ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVIII'' lives in a very nice place. For example: the town which he technically calls home is basically a beach resort town.
** Arguably a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], the backstory establishes that the world has been previously engulfed in globe-wide warfare, and one time a whole bunch of monsters just came down from the moon, [[spoiler: which happens again over the course of the game.]]
* ''{{Final Fantasy X-2}}'': Paine, especially when one considers the [[LighterAndSofter noticeably cheerier atmosphere and characters]], contrasted with [[FinalFantasyX the original]].
