* In the ''SwordOfTruth'' novel ''Faith of the Fallen'', Richard is this to the city of Altur'Rang. [[spoiler: Nicci kidnaps him and drags him down there, intending to "educate" him about the superiority of the Imperial Order. Instead, Richard arrives, sees how drab and suppressed the population is, and immediately sets about making his corner of the world a better place by helping with repairs to keep up the apartment building, essentially starting a black market trade for goods (particularly ''food'') the citizens are deprived of by the government for "the greater good," and creating artwork that shows man as ''beautiful'' and not a twisted and wicked creature inferior to the Creator. His actions lead to a city-wide revolt against the Order when they force him to demolish his artwork prior to his execution, and triggers Nicci's HeelFaceTurn.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Aang acts as one of these in "The Headband" when he becomes accidentally enrolled in a straight-laced Fire Nation school. And being the friendly, world-traveling free spirit he is, he won't settle for anything less than throwing everyone a dance party. Yes, that's a reference to ''{{Footloose}}''.

* Shiro in ''Anime/{{K}}'', and also Neko, particularly in season 2. Not that [[BunnyEarsLawyer Scepter 4]] and [[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters HOMRA]] were all that strait-laced before he came along, but they did see themselves as perpetual enemies until [[spoiler: Shiro's clan leads them into an alliance]] in season 2.

* Creator/RobinWilliams' characters usually plays blithe spirit characters. ''Film/DeadPoetsSociety'' (1989), ''GoodMorningVietnam'' (1987), ''PatchAdams'' (1998), and even ''WesternAnimation/{{Robots}}'' (2005), ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' (2007) and ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum'' (2007) have heavy doses of this. Apparently, just having Creator/RobinWilliams appear in your movie at all causes Blithe Spirit. Doesn't even have to be Robin's character.
