* The T-Birds from both ''Film/{{Grease}}'' and ''Film/Grease2'' come off as this somewhat. They smoke and drink, but in general act more like arrogant bully wannabes than actual tough guys. The most violence committed is the shoving match at the dance in the first movie and the T-Birds [[HarmlessVillain ''throwing pies '']] at the Scorpions at the carnival. The only blood drawn in either movie is Frenchy piercing Sandy's ear.

* Machete in the ''Film/SpyKids'' movies was about as [=badass=] as Creator/DannyTrejo could be allowed to be with the PG rating. This was later [[SubvertedTrope turned around]], though, once Creator/RobertRodriguez gave Machete [[Film/{{Machete}} his own, very R-rated movie]], where he was very much ''not'' this trope.
* Bad Cop and Batman from ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''. Bad Cop is the tough as nails [[TheDragon Dragon]] to Lord Business, and yet he never uses anything worse than "Darn" when voicing his frustrations at not being able to catch the heroes. For Batman it's cranked UpToEleven and PlayedForLaughs, as he desperately wants to be seen as a DarkerAndEdgier angsty, brooding figure but just comes off as trying way too hard. [[spoiler:Justified in that the story is being told by an 8-and-a-half year old boy who is engaging in his play at home, as Batman is probably his idea of what a ''real'' badass is like and his parents would presumably be able to hear if he used actual profanity with Bad Cop.]]

* Most Franchise/PowerRangers are this, though once in a while one will prove to be an ''actual'' (but still family-friendly) badass. Case in point, the entire original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' team - they're described in the opening sequence as "teenagers with attitude", but generally seem to be upstanding, rule-abiding citizens.

enough. Possibly justified, as while he doesn't need a helmet for safety reasons, wearing one means he won't have to deal with the hassle of being ticketed for a safety violation.

** Finn and Jake zigzag around this all the time. The show also uses idiosyncratic slang words and phrases. "Oh my Glob" is probably the most commonly used of these. In the earlier episodes there was some usage of mathematical terms (and the word "mathematical" itself) as all-purpose expletives and/or intensifiers, though this isn't as common in the later episodes.

* Leeroy Brown in ''Film/CrocodileDundee II''. He has a reputation at the community bar for his tough-guy demeanor and for selling what the bartender maintains is illicit substances. Turns out the "heavy shit" he regularly sells is nothing worse than simple office supplies, and his gangsteresque persona is just an act to live up to the pop cultural reputation of his name. However, he ''does'' have connections with genuine tough guys who he enlists to help Mick rescue Sue.

* Whenever MarvelComics does a family friendly book featuring {{Wolverine}} (such as ''Wolverine: First Class'') readers are treated to the sight of a berserker with foot-long, razor sharp, metal claws that never sheds any blood. This is usually accomplished by having him only use his claws on inanimate objects like doors and cars, and punching living creatures instead (how [[MechaMooks robots]] fare depends on how family-friendly the book is supposed to be -- i.e. "all ages" or "for kids only" -- and how [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman human-like]] the robots are). Having Wolverine constantly retract his claws during combat does have the side effect of allowing them to have Wolverine constantly ''extend'' his claws, which is his [[KineticClicking equivalent]] of [[DramaticGunCock dramatically cocking]] a [[ClickHello gun]]. Wolverine also never drinks or smokes in "family friendly" books, though he rarely smokes in regular comics anymore these days either.
* {{Comicbook/Nova}} -- sure, he can get quite violent with his powers (and there was that time he [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath killed Annihilus by reaching down his throat and ripping his internal organs out]]), but it's acknowledged and even lampshaded that he hates swearing and doesn't seem to like smoking or drinking either.

* Nick Wilde from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is presented as a conman and swindler, however no part of the so-called "hustle" we see is actually illegal. He buys an elephant-sized ice pop, melts it down, re-freezes it into lots of much-smaller ice pops, and after selling them, sells the used popsicle sticks as rodent-sized lumber. The only part of the operation that could really qualify as a scam is the bit where [[AdultsDressedAsChildren he dresses up a diminutive colleague as his infant son]], which seems to only be necessary due to [[FantasticRacism speciesist shopkeepers who won't sell to a fox]]. Genuine criminals do appear in the film, but since Nick is a protagonist, it makes sense that his own misdeeds be far tamer. This is acknowledged in the film twice: first when Judy tries to arrest him and he successfully proves that he's acting inside the law, and again when Weaselton takes a subtly mocking tone when speaking of Nick's methods.

* The titular character of ABC Family's ''[[TheMiddleman The Middleman]]'', although it's an interesting, tongue in cheek example of the trope. He's known for colorful euphemisms to replace swears (The saltiest he's been heard saying is "Coming in hotter than the devil's wedding tackle.") and in fact admonishes his sidekick for swearing. (It's censored with the tell-tale bleep and a censor box.) He also beats information out of a mook by repeatedly hitting the guy's head against a car... while reaching for a tall, cool glass of milk. It builds healthy bones.
