* The eponymous NonIronicClown in ''VideoGame/{{Dropsy}}'' seems to be almost entirely unaware of the very possibility of violence. To the point where when, in the finale, [[spoiler:the S-Corp CEO is pointing a gun at Dropsy after mutating his animal friends and killing his dog in cold blood]], Dropsy still just wants to hug him and befriend him.

* ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'': Pathians tend to be extremely non-violent. It's not actually a part of their religion, but falls into the general heading of "do more good than harm." The main character, Waxillium Ladrian, is a Pathian gunman, but he's very much the exception. In ''Literature/ShadowsOfSelf'', this is how the constables immediately realize that a Pathian priest was an imposter sent to stir up trouble.

-->'''Marasi:''' A Pathian? Murdering? Sir, their priests are some of least aggressive people on the planet. I've seen toddlers more dangerous.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa_in_Jainism Jains]]. Jainism includes the precept of "Ahiṃsā"; the absence of the desire to harm ''any'' life. How strictly this precept is adhered to varies, but all Jains observe it to some degree.

The more fastidious Jains would only leave their house with a facemask (to make sure they do not breathe in any bugs) and a small broom (to gently sweep insects out of they way so they do not tread on them).

** The Argolins from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E1TheLeisureHive The Leisure Hive]]" and the Dulcians from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E1TheDominators The Dominators]]" [[PlanetOfHats wore this hat]]. The Thals from the first Dalek story, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks The Daleks]]", as well, though they later dropped this stance rather than having the Daleks exterminate them all. All three races had previously survived a NuclearWar, making them all three, in effect, a species-level example of TheAtoner.

* In the'' Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, Huragok - better known to humanity as the Engineers - a Covenant member species that views killing of even pests as wrong. Ironically enough [[spoiler: one of them, called "Lighter Than Some" was the first Covenant species to kill a human; Said human was trying to kill its best friend Dadab, a grunt, after the party had assaulted his ship in search of Forerunner artifacts. It was of course horrified of what it done.]] Huragok are a member species of the Covenant only by circumstances as they enjoy repairing and inspecting Forerunner technology, but are indifferent to nearly everything else and in fact have helped humans on numerous occasions by repairing their technology, including Master Chief's MJOLNIR -armors' shield system.

* UsefulNotes/MohandasGandhi has this reputation, [[SubvertedTrope but the reality is much more complicated.]] While he stopped the first Indo-Pakistan war by going on hunger-strike and successfully helped to end British imperialism in India non-violently, his non-violence was more of a tactic than an ethos. In the case of Britain, it was more that he was never capable of acquiring the weapons necessary for the revolution through force that he initially wanted, so a peaceful one was the next-best thing for him. Philosophically, he leaned towards the MartialPacifist, and considered violence preferable to passive acceptance.[[note]]Gandhi's philosophy of non-violent civil disobedience is frequently mistranslated as "passive resistance," but is more accurately rendered "militant non-violence."[[/note]]. His ''ahimsa'' demanded that its followers actively work to counteract violence, and espoused the use of force in the immediate defense of others.
