* Aoko Aozaki of ''VisualNovel/Tsukihime'' fame was a complete grouch to ''everyone'' as a teenager in ''VisualNovel/MahouTsukaiNoYoru'', in contrast to her adult self who was more or less whimsical.

* ''Videogame/DonkeyKongCountry'''s SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong 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'.

* In ''VideoGame/MegaMan & Bass'', Proto Man, Mega Man's AloofBigBrother, insists on trying a HeroicSacrifice using a SuperpowerMeltdown to defeat the evil robot King, arguing it's the only way to win (never mind that Mega Man, Bass and he could probably bypass his shield collectively). It's partially successful, since it destroyed King's shield and allowed him to be beaten. It's a good thing he's a robot and [[DisneyDeath could be repaired,]] since Superpower Meltdowns don't have the highest success rate.

* [[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.

* 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]].
