* Apachai Hopachai from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is the embodiment of this trope.

* Apachai Hopachai from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is the embodiment of this trope. A hulking man who is psychologically incapable of ever holding back his incredible strength in a fight... but is also one of the kindest people you'd ever meet, and spends his free time either playing with children in the park or feeding birds. He is very popular with both.

** Toph is often rude, surly, and a frighteningly powerful Earthbender. Her rudeness and surliness is also a FreudianExcuse to cover her pain at being isolated from the outside world for most of her childhood and being seen as weak and helpless by her parents.

* Wreck-It Ralph, from [[Disney/WreckItRalph the movie of the same name]], is nine feet tall, weighs 643 pounds, and demolishes a brick building with his fists for a living. And he pretty much becomes a surrogate father to Vanellope, who just melts his heart.
* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': The customers at the [[BadGuyBar Snuggly Duckling]] look like a tough, brutish crowd, but when Rapunzel talks about having a dream, they break into a musical number about their dreams, like being a concert pianist or a flower arranger. Thor, the biggest, most intimidating of the lot, collects unicorn figurines.

He's also a kind and sensitive guy who just wants some positive attention from his co-workers instead of the usual fear and loathing. And he pretty much becomes a surrogate father to Vanellope, who just melts his heart.

** Future Trunks. He come from a BadFuture and is the most merciless of the main characters who aren't [[AntiHero anti-heroes]]. He also has a soft spot for animals and is often seen playing with squirrels when relaxing.

* Ruby and by extension, Garnet from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. Ruby's emotions are anything but subtle - if she's angry, she's literally [[PlayingWithFire fuming]], if she's upset, she doesn't hesitate to show tears, and if she's anywhere near her girlfriend, [[SickeninglySweethearts it's almost impossible to stop them from flirting]]. Garnet is a bit more stoic due to Sapphire's influence, but she still has a huge sweet side to her that mostly shows around her adopted son, Steven.

** Creator/BioWare has a long and lovely tradition of these guys. Just check out [[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!]]

* 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.

to:

* 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.

* ''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.
