* According to voice actor Peter Cullen, this is how he originally played Optimus Prime in ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers''. After telling his older brother and Marine veteran Larry about the role, Larry told him:
--> Well, if you're going to be a hero, be a real hero. Don't be a Hollywood stereotypical thing with the yelling and screaming. Be strong enough to be gentle.

* Film/{{Tron}} is a very sweet guy, despite being the biggest {{Badass}} in {{Cyberspace}}. He is visibly shaken and upset when he [[spoiler: thinks that Flynn and Ram were killed]], and hangs his head sadly when informed HeDidntMakeIt. With an urgent call from Alan at stake, what does he do? He goes to find and free [[HappilyMarried Yori]] (and if you factor in that DeletedScene, have a "private" moment back at her home). In the sequel? [[spoiler: ''Twenty years of brainwashing'']] is overridden with ThePowerOfFriendship. And his ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' version celebrated the team's victory with hugs all around.

* ''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. She probably inherited this trait from her father Taiyang, who is a hulking muscle-man with broad arms covered in burn scars, who nevertheless tenderly brings his daughters breakfast in bed [[spoiler:while they're recovering from their injuries]].

** Wrex in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series is mostly angry and bitingly sarcastic, but he does have the occasional emotional moment (the end of his personal quest in the first game and his reunion with Shepard in the second, especially). The latter moment is rather like TheEeyore going Squee. By ''3'', if you've done everything you can to work with him, he is incredibly happy to tell you that even if everything goes to hell and the genophage cure doesn't work, he considers you [[BloodBrothers a blood-sibling]] and will make sure that every krogan for the rest of time knows your name.

* ''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.
