The first impression you get when you see these people is that they're [[NiceGuy really, really nice]]... [[TastesLikeDiabetes maybe too nice]]. They're very humble, they [[LoveYouAndEverybody care about everyone and almost never hold a grudge]], they're always TakingTheBullet for their friends, and even if the audience [[BaseBreakingCharacter doesn't always like them]], they're almost invariably loved in-universe.

* Kagome from ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' nearly compromises the quest when she realizes that she is jealous of Kikyo for holding part of Inuyasha's heart. Combined with her own self-worth issues ''and'' The Baby's {{Breaking Lecture}}s, it's no wonder the kid almost crosses the DespairEventHorizon. [[spoiler: But then she brings herself back and tells the ManipulativeBastard "ShutUpHannibal".]]

* This trope is the main difference between ''Manga/FruitsBasket'''s adaptations. In the original manga, Tohru is eventually revealed to have ''severely'' low self-esteem and an unhealthy inability to move on from her mother's death. In the anime, she's a straight up PuritySue who never goes through CharacterDevelopment and has barely any influence on the main plot. In both versions, she obsessively sidelines her own needs and problems- ostensibly because she wants to take care of [[DysfunctionJunction her friends]], but really because she can't face her trauma. (In the manga's finale, she confronts [[JerkassWoobie Akito]], and [[spoiler:forgives her]], realizing that Akito's cruelty is as false as Tohru's happiness.)

* [[BrilliantButLazy Yue]] and [[ShrinkingViolet Nodoka]] from ''MahouSenseiNegima'' both go through this, because they like [[{{Shotacon}} the same boy]]. Nodoka's [[CrowningMomentOfFunny subconscious]] [[MarryThemAll solution]], which she [[BrainBleach tries very hard to forget]], further qualifies her for this trope.

* ''{{Frasier}}'' ventures into this quite often, and it gets PlayedForLaughs most of the time. For example, Niles once had lunch with his ex-wife, and lied about it to his current wife. [[HilarityEnsues One lie led to another]], and he felt so guilty it made him hyperventilate.

* Taki of ''MaidenRose'' CantHaveSexEver thanks to his status as MessianicArchetype, so when he falls in love with Klaus things really go downhill for him as he struggles between his conscience and his desires.

* Invoked word-for-word in the first opening to the ''Manga/DeathNote'' anime. (''Douishite? Boku wa kowarita Messiah?'') Suitable, too, since [[VillainProtagonist Light]] starts out as a KnightTemplarBigBrother, UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans, but sympathetic character, but goes [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope totally insane]] when he discovers that yes, he has actually killed people.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', [[spoiler:[[SpoiledSweet Princess Shirahoshi]]]] goes through this, when she [[spoiler:leaves her family's protection to visit the Sea Forest]]. She gets over it with some encouragement from Luffy, though.

** Well, actually only vampires have a [[KarmaMeter Morality Meter]], and that is because of [[EnemyWithin The Beast]] that keeps pushing them to commit greater depravities. Human characters are probably not at risk of losing morality under that system unless something truly exceptional happens, and other supernaturals have different Karma Meters.
