-->''The Amyrlin gave an exasperated sigh. “You remind me of my uncle Huan. No one could ever pin him down. He liked to gamble, too, and he’d much rather have fun than work. He died pulling children out of a burning house. He wouldn’t stop going back as long as there was one left inside. Are you like him, Mat? Will you be there when the flames are high?”''

Added fluff about Eloise being the generous mischief maker.
Added DiffLines:
* The title character of ''{{Literature/Eloise}}''. While certain parents take offence at her being the ScrewySquirrel, in reality Eloise is shown especially in the adaptations as a caring, generous person, giving gifts to Plaza Hotel employees and the less fortunate.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Katniss admits herself that she's not very friendly. There are quite a few times throughout the series where she has angry/rude outbursts. But they are often caused by the various stressful situations she's thrown into and the CrapsackWorld she lives in. Regardless, she still has a kind heart and would sacrifice anything in order to protect the people that she loves.

** Mr. Rafiel in ''[[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.

** Ford Prefect veers in and out of this trope - he's something of an asshole, but he ''did'' save Arthur from certain death and is passionately opposed to cruelty to any animal but geese.

* In ''Literature/SpaceMarineBattles'', over-captain Vallax. He's a glory-stealing, egoistic jerkass, but has some (faint) sense of honor and wounds up [[spoiler:comitting HeroicSacrifice to save his men.]]

* Max herself from ''Literature/MaximumRide''. She can be particularly rude and such to other people, but she undeniably cares about the Flock and her mom and biological sister.
