** Not to mention [[spoiler:Sirius tried to feed him to a werewolf when he was sixteen and routinely bullied him]], so while it's a bit irrational it's understandable.

* Courtney Milan's 'Cyclone' series has Adam [[SirSwearsALot Fucking]] Reynolds - a billionaire tech entrepreneur who's foul-mouthed, foul-tempered, blunt, and hypercritical of everyone around him, a well-meaning but seriously imperfect father who kept his son in the spotlight from infancy, and [[spoiler: a cocaine addict]]. WordOfGod is that his real-life models included Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, and Mark Zuckerberg. But, while his company has some ethical issues, he can usually be counted on to do the right thing in a real crunch, he's very receptive to criticism, and he has [[EveryoneHasStandards standards]]. (He's also a fan favorite verging on MemeticBadass.)

** Mr. Rafiel in ''[[Literature/MissMarple A Caribbean Mystery]]'' initially comes across as an impossibly rude old rich bastard, but turns out to be a surprisingly kind man under all his bluster. He and Miss Marple become fast friends over the course of the story.

** Mr. Rafiel in ''[[Literature/MissMarple A Caribbean Mystery]]'' initially comes across as an impossibly rude old rich bastard, but turns out to be a surprisingly kind man under all his bluster. He and Miss Marple become fast friends over the course of the story. It also becomes clear that at least some of his rudeness and ill temper stems from poor health and chronic pain rather than his innate personality. He's well aware of his faults, and has a deep and genuine gratitude to those close to him for putting up with him.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'' has at least three.
** Gremma, Dee's roommate, is HotBlooded and sarcastic, and tends to lean towards a "punch first, ask questions later" mentality. However, she's Dee's closest friend in the world, and steps up to the plate when Dee needs her help.
** Cora is an IceQueen [[spoiler:who once had someone killed for unknown reasons]], but she's the TeamMom, and [[spoiler:throws herself up against the Daemon, who she knows is dangerous when he's angry, to try and stop Riley from making a DealWithTheDevil, a choice that Cora thinks will ruin her life. (Riley's desperate enough that she doesn't care, but it was nice of Cora to try.)]]
** The Daemon himself. He's cold, aloof, cynical, and prone to flashes of frightening anger, but [[spoiler:he's trying to prevent the world from being destroyed]], and he has rare PetTheDog moments that hint that ''does'' see the heartless troops as more than just a means to an end. In his case, it's more like a heart of bronze buried beneath several layers of ice, but still.

* ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'': Pinocchio himself is not the friendliest person ever, but he is still a selfless "boy" who would help unknown people and even antagonists provided they haven't done a grave fault. It is also clear that he loves his parental figures. The Fairy states that Pinocchio is this, because he had wept over her supposed grave, noting that despite his faults he does have a heart and therefore he has a chance of redemption.
