* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

This character type appears in child-friendly works. They are supposed to be a supreme {{Badass}}, but are unfortunately hampered by their target audience. They are as much [[Film/DieHard John McClane]] as can be squeezed by the censors, and they are often much tougher than their companions. Still, they are usually not allowed to smoke, drink, bed numerous people, swear, or do too much fighting or killing, and that is quite a list of hurdles to making them a rough-edged [[Film/DieHard Mister Falcon]].

* ''GIJoe'' The Dreadnoks are very much Badbutts. Despite being described in the file cards as a biker gang that is enough of a public menace that GI Joe, a military task force, has to deal with them, instead of local, state or Federal law enforcement, the crimes in their file cards often include offenses like "Passing Stopped School Buses at High Speed", their main criminal enterprise is operating a single bootleg gas station in the Florida Everglades, and their odious personal habits include brushing their teeth with grape soda (their trademark favorite food), eating one bite out of every donut in the box and putting them back, and never changing their socks.

** Wolf O'Donnell with his dramatic "What the [[GoshDangItToHeck HECK]]!?". ''Videogame/StarFoxAssault'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' veer him more into legit {{Badass}} territory, his vocabulary doesn't get any harsher than calling people idiots or weaklings however, and NeverSayDie is in full effect.
