*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the four's stance as the sole pacifists on the now war-torn, adventure-riddled C'hou makes everyone else think they're nuts, or worse. Luckily for them, being the most powerful people around means they can maintain their philosophy despite everything.

* In ''Film/AngelAndTheBadman'' (1947) Quirt Evans (JohnWayne) falls in love with Quaker Prudence Worth (Gail Russel) and foreswears his violent ways and quest to avenge the murder of his adoptive father. He almost backslides, but in the final confrontation with the man responsible, Laredo Stevens, Prudence convinces Quirt to lay down his gun. [[spoiler: Stevens then attempts to shoot Evans, who would have been killed if not for the timely intervention of the sheriff (Harry Carey, Sr.).]] Some critics say that here Prudence Worth succeeded where her coreligionist Amy Kane (Creator/GraceKelly) would fail in ''Film/HighNoon''. The pacifist theme this Western is a bit unexpected given John Wayne's popular image, but he not only played the lead, but also produced it.

* The White Queen from ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. The fact that her arms are always uptight don't let her injure things, too.

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' detests violence, consistently shows empathy for the enemies he faces with the Crystal Gems face no matter how mindless or violent, and will always seek a peaceful resolution. He does understand that sometimes the Crystal Gems ''need'' to fight, but will himself offer defensive support for his teammates rather than fight directly. The tail end of season three has Steven experience three different instances of this approach failing, twice requiring him to fight back in self-defense, which haunt him for some time after.

* Mario from ''MeleesEnd'' decides that he's tired of spending all his time fighting (this despite being a character in a fighting game) and refuses to use violence, even when Ganondorf is in the middle of kicking his and his team's ass.

* Arguably, Penelope Garcia from ''Series/CriminalMinds''. When the officer guarding her house is shot, Morgan puts her in a corner and gives her a gun. Her first reaction (when there's a killer breaking into her HOUSE) is, "I don't believe in guns." (Morgan replies, "Trust me, they are very real.")
** She could be more of a Technical Pacifist; she's not opposed to the team kicking bad guy butt, but she doesn't like to do it herself.
*** She doen't really condone them hurting the bad guys, just catching them.
*** Yet when Reed was in danger, she didn't hesitate to shoot the man who was about to kill him.
