* [[MeaningfulName Ash Firin]] from ''{{WesternAnimation/Superjail}}'' may be a horribly burned pyromaniac with a creepy voice, but when he met a little girl who was brought into Superjail by mistake, he instantly gets attached to her, throws the inmate who wanted to burn her into the incinerator and starts being his parental figure. He also inadvertedly named her Cancer (pronounced San-sehr) mistaking the medical bracelet in her arm for her name.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has Erza as a fine example. When the titular Fairy Tail forms an alliance with some other guilds to take down a powerful enemy, one of the guilds only send a young girl, Wendy, to help. Most of the alliance members are protesting to have a child help them, however Erza is the only one to say to Wendy that she is glad to have her on their team and excuse for the other's reactions. Later, when Wendy breaks down crying when realizing that her guild companions are nothing but an illusion, it's Erza who comforts Wendy and invites her to Fairy Tail. And yeah, Erza is the resident harsh, [[TheStoic stoic]] {{Badass}} of ''Fairy Tail''.
