* ''Literature/TheUnknownSoldier'': Sergeant Hietanen isn't just the local SergeantRock and BoisterousBruiser.... he's also TheHeart and the AllLovingHero, in whose warmly beating heart is empathy for enemy soldiers and suffering war orphans alike, and in a world of AllMenArePerverts, he has genuine beautiful romantic love for women.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', [[NaughtyNuns Leliana]] often comments that [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sten]] is a 'softy' as she finds him picking flowers (which he excuses as 'medicinal') and playing with a kitten (he claims he was training it), although this is never seen by the player. He also comments about how great cookies are.
** Creator/BioWare has a long and lovely tradition of these guys. Just check out [[Franchise/BaldursGate Minsc]]. BIG guy, scary in a battle situation...turns into absolute mush when it comes to his beloved hamster. There's also [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Zaalbar]]. Two meters and change of walking fur and empty stomach that's a surprisingly sweet guy, and right behind his little Twi'lek buddy when it comes to [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sticking up for you]] after TheReveal. [[spoiler: Shame on you Dark Side players!]]

* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' contains the novel Shatterpoint most of which is dedicated to showing just why [[GeniusBruiser Mace]] [[MasterSwordsman Windu]] is a MemeticBadass. He's also a FriendToAllChildren, and a genuinely good man.
-->'''Mace Windu''': If it were up to him, no one would hurt anyone. Anywhere. Ever.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': Strong Mad is one of the biggest examples of the DumbMuscle trope you'll ever see in fiction. But he really, really likes The Cheat.

* Great, lumbering Rubeus Hagrid from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is more soft spot than bruiser unless you make him mad, in which case the ratio switches over. Unfortunately he's enough of a bruiser and can effortlessly NoSell so much that he has a hard time keeping track of the difference between "harmless to Hagrid" and "harmless to children", which causes certain hiccups in his teaching career.

* By all accounts, Creator/ErnestHemingway. According to ''Papa Hemingway'', when he was still a struggling writer in Paris, he would sit alone for hours and ''cry'' over rejection letters. Considering the fragile ego of some writers (at the best of times) and the fact the man was seriously depressed, eventually killed himself and could only shut up his inner editor with lots and lots of booze... well that actually isn't that surprising.

-->'''Creator/AnnSheridan:''' ''(about Cagney)'' It was always "Hiya, baby!" or "How are ya, sweetheart?" He's a great guy. He didn't smoke or drink. [[CantHoldHisLiquor He could get drunk on two drinks of liquor]]. And he never made the party scene.
