* ''Film/XMen'': Wolverine is near-invincible in a fight and he can be very ill-mannered in social situations, but deep down, he's actually quite sweet and caring. Those who are lucky enough to see his softer side include Rogue, Jean Grey and Charles Xavier. Although there's a part of Logan which will always be "wild," the Phoenix points out to him that Professor X has succeeded in "taming" him.

* ''Literature/CodexAlera'': Varg is considered big, tough and dangerous by his people (who are wolf-men and average eight feet tall) and is also a genius-level strategist, skilled ''ludus''-player and student of military history. Varg is old, grizzled, covered in scars and once tore a political rival's throat out with his teeth. However, whenever his grandkids are around, his facade drops completely and he gladly becomes a combination of play-wrestling partner, storyteller and climbing apparatus.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Yang Xiao Long is an immensely strong girl who can beat down tough criminals and bloodthirsty Grimm with just her fists. She also maintains an optimistic and chummy attitude around her friends and dotes on her younger sister Ruby, often crushing poor Ruby with her hugs. [[spoiler:She probably inherited this trait from her father Taiyang, who is a hulking muscle-man covered in burn scars who also brings his injured daughters breakfast in bed.]]

* Grunkle Stan(ley) Pines from "WesternAnimation/GravityFalls". He may be a tough, greedy old trickster with a mean right hook, but when it comes to his family he'd do literally anything for them, even [[spoiler: sacrifice himself for their sake]].

** Carol Danvers is less obvious about it, but despite being a HotBlooded top class athlete with [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower borderline superhuman physical abilities]] whose primary close combat strategy is to use a combo of speed and brute force to beat her opponent into submission [[spoiler: and it turns out that there's nothing borderline about them following chapter 60 - her great-grandparents are Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter and she inherited the super soldier genes.]] She also instantly defaults to playing CoolBigSis to first the lost Mattie Franklin, then later Diana, both of whom are much smaller than she is [[spoiler: though Diana could tear her in half]], proving prone to protectively cuddling the latter. She also gives Harry a hug and a YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre speech in chapter 72 - mixed in with some affectionate snark, mind you.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has a few, notably canon examples Hulk and Thor - the former is the Strongest One There Is, yet is also compulsively protective of children, referring to Harry Potter/Thorson as 'Little God' and notably calming down when he's around. The latter can go toe to toe with the former and can destroy planets in the midst of UnstoppableRage. He also enjoys [[SleepCute snuggling with his brother and son.]]
** Harry himself shoots up height wise, gaining a bit of muscle and by chapter 70, enough raw power to blow up a reasonably sized mountain. He, like his father, is a CuddleBug who likes nothing more than [[SleepCute snuggling up to loved ones]] and is generally a sensitive and emotive person, taking care to be kind to those smaller and less advantaged than he is.

** Shinji -who in this story is Franchise/{{Superman}}- fits this: he can punch a hole through a mountain and has beaten thugs and giant aliens... and he is a nice, kind, caring boy who cares about everyone and is always willing to give a hug and a YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre speech to whoever is cring or upset.

* Sha Gojyo from ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}''. Foul-mouthed, skirt-chasing, iron-pumping bundle of muscle and bravado who is an absolute pushover for lost kittens, frightened kids [[spoiler: having been an abused child himself]], and women with hard-luck stories. [[spoiler: It's stated that women in tears remind him of his stepmother, but beyond that, he's just a kind-hearted guy.]] In a flashback story in ''Reload'', he agrees to be held hostage in exchange for an old friend he knows perfectly well is just going to run out on him, because he has to give the guy a chance. After rescuing him, an amused Hakkai comments: "You make a terrible villain."
