* 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.

* Lobo as he is presented in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. He drinks, but the drink is only implied to be alcoholic (it ''is'' highly explosive though), he uses only family-friendly swears (the exact same ones he uses in the comic, point of fact), only alludes to serious violence and never kills anyone on-screen, has a family friendly laser gun, only uses his [[WeaponOfChoice signature meathook]] to grab things in a non-harmful fashion, and doesn't go much further than [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a few sleazy comments]] towards ComicBook/LoisLane and Franchise/WonderWoman on the 'sex' front. He's also shown to have, if not a HiddenHeartOfGold, at least a Hidden Heart of Pyrite or some other almost-precious-looking metal.

[[TropesAreNotBad This is one case where it actually sort of works,]] since rather than try to sell Lobo's violence or debauchery the creative team played up the absurdity and asshole-ishness of the character instead.

* SpyroTheDragon and his sidekick, Hunter, both fall into this in the original trilogy. They get away with as much attitude as the game ratings will allow. Unfortunately, lines like "You kicked their darn butts!" tend to send their lines into {{narm}} territory.

* Seto Kaiba in the 4Kids dub of ''Anime/YuGiOh!'' suffered this, or at least to the degree that someone who plays [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries children's card games]] can be badass. The heavy censorship in the show prevented him from beating people with his apparent martial arts skill or jamming guns with a card tossed in the air (among other non-gaming related [=badass=] deeds).

* Jay and his group in ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' were supposed to be the school's dangerous crowd of at-risk teens, but when the worst thing they did was break into a vending machine in the school, BoycottTheCaf (and [[FanNickname the rest of the fandom]]) dubbed them "The Candy Bandits".

* Most, if not all serious characters of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime. List includes Giovanni, Cyrus, Hunter J, the Iron-Masked Marauder, Lawrence III, as well as Ash's [[TheRival rival]] Paul (to an extent).
* Mister Stuart in ''Anime/SonicX'. He is the [[BadassTeacher teacher of Chris who can give a group of agents a beating]]. This was cut out by 4kids, but the Mister Stuart in the Japanese Version is an all-around badass.

** Bart was conceived as a non-[=badbutt=] version of ComicStrip/{{Dennis the Menace|US}}, but edgier animated shows make him look [=Badbutt=] by comparison. This was pointed out in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' when a Bart Expy told Cartman he once [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E8TheTelltaleHead cut the head off a statue]], to which Cartman replied that he once [[Recap/SouthParkS5E4ScottTenormanMustDie tricked a boy into eating his parents]].

* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', this is [[InvertedTrope inverted]] for MickeyMouse, DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} when they appear in the series. Although they were no stranger to violence in their early cartoons, they started being known for being harmless characters that mostly appeared in LighterAndSofter kiddie fare (the preschool show ''MickeyMouseClubhouse'' being the prime example). With ''Kingdom Hearts'' geared towards an older audience (but still family-friendly), the trio was effectively allowed to not only return to violence, but to act as warriors/mages and genuinely kick some ass alongside Sora. The same goes for Mickey's appearance in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' poor Spidey took quite a beating due to the heavy censorship not letting him punch anyone.
