* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': At first glance, Italy seems to be a coward. After all, he would rather run from a fight than engage in one. However, it's because he would rather be hurt than hurt others. He ''can'' fight, what with being a swordsman who can rival [[UsefulNotes/{{Samurai}} Japan]] in battle and has [[SuperSpeed superspeed]].

* In ''Fanfic/EquestriaAcrossTheMultiverse'', the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 World of Empathy]] ponies are collectively this. They're all TheEmpath and thus can't bring themselves to harm others, though they ''do'' understand why others sometimes need to use violence. Kimono develops their own PoweredArmor type, the Bard Armor, to be a completely nonviolent SupportPartyMember to the other sets, enabling her and any other Empathy Worlder who uses it to be a BadassPacifist.

* Derek The Cleric from ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'' has taken an oath of non-violence. If absolutely necessary, he will use magic to immobilize potential threats, but that is as far as he goes.

He's okay with turning into a Shardblade and being admired at a work of art. Or with turning into a pole to block somebody else's Shardblade.]]

** In the MadeForTVMovie, the Eighth Doctor is definitely like this. However, he's a KleptomaniacHero, and steals whatever the hell he thinks he needs (and stealing GorgeousPeriodDress from someone's locker probably counts as just stealing whatever he ''wants''). As he needs to get someplace in a hurry, he steals a motorcycle from a cop. It's possibly the most [[AllLovingHero endearing]] armed robbery ever:
--->"''Now, would you stand aside before I shoot myself?''"

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has shades of this. While the titular character does fight and once even goes as far as [[spoiler:using the Cruciatus on Amycus to protect Prof. Mcgonagall]] he never uses spells that would actually physically harm you, to the point where the 'Expelliarmus,' the Disarming Charm, is his signature move. He refuses to even ''stun'' [[spoiler:Stan Shunpike]] who is firing curses at him, because they are currently flying on brooms and [[spoiler:Stan]] might seriously hurt himself if he fell. However, he is very much an ActionHero and generally more of a MartialPacifist and TechnicalPacifist.

** Generally speaking, the Doctor ''tries'' to be an ActualPacifist, but his ChronicHeroSyndrome means that when bad guys attack, he won't just stand by, and often becomes a TechnicalPacifist as a result. However, he remains this trope because his favorite tactic (Daleks and a few other monsters aside) is still to [[SheatheYourSword convince them to stand down]] or BreakThemByTalking.



* The Duchess Satine of Madalore in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. In the episode "Voyage of Temptation" she even hesitates to shoot someone threatening to blow up her ship.
** This is later [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in Season 5, as not only does she have disposition of being a pacifist in a galaxy at war and leading a people who are historically [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy a proud warrior race]], the Death Watch (who've been trying to overthrow her regime and bring Mandalore back to its warrior race roots) [[spoiler: teams up with Darth Maul, stages an invasion of the planet by an army of criminals to reinforce how pacifism has made Mandalore vulnerable to those willing to prey on those who refuse to fight back and then Death Watch comes along to "quell" the criminals.]] In the end, [[spoiler: the people of Mandalore see the Death Watch as heroes, Satine is removed from power, Mandalore goes into another civil war not long after Maul takes the throne and she is coldly murdered by Maul for the sake of emotionally tormenting Obi-Wan.]]
