* Another WWII example: A fairly anti-semitic Polish policeman, known in his town for arresting lots of Jews, was sweeping an abandoned ghetto with other policemen and the Nazis, looking for any hiding Jews. Seeing a ladder leading up into an attic, he climbed the ladder to find several hiding Jewish children and their mother, picking them out with the light of his lantern. He could have gotten massive rewards and a promotion. But when the SS officer in charge called to him from below to ask if he had found anything, [[PetTheDog he replied, "No," and left.]] We do not know what happened to that policeman, but the family survived and remembered his action that day.

* Creator/JimCummings will call children in hospitals and brighten their day by talking to them as WinnieThePooh.

* Creator/JimCummings will call children in hospitals and brighten their day by talking to them as WinnieThePooh. And part of the reason he wanted to be involved with Disney's ''The Princess and the Frog'' was because he claimed that Tiana (the movie's lead character) looks exactly like his adoptive daughter.



* Yet another WWII example: in the last year of the war, Soviet planes bombed facilities in the German countryside in support of military operations. During one such run it happened that two Wehrmacht soldiers went to their home village and on the way found several children playing in the woods. When they noticed the planes approching, rather than leave them alone they gathered them and attempted to flee, which then turned out futile. So they simply shielded the children with their own bodies. The two soldiers died but the children survived. The grave marking this action still exists near the ruins of Castle Falkenstein.

** It especially applied to his relationship with the child actors for ''Willy Wonka''. He became close friends with Peter Ostrum (Charlie). When it came time to shoot his infamous outburst at the end of the film, Wilder desperately wanted to tell Peter just how mad he was going to be, because he didn't want to ruin their friendship. Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca) and Denise Nickerson (Violet) absolutely adored working with him as well.
* Creator/GordonRamsay on Series/MasterChef Junior. He's very encouraging and kind, and lets them stick his head on guacamole if they win a challenge.

* Creator/GordonRamsay on Series/MasterChef Junior. He's Despite how he acts on Hell's Kitchen, in real life, he's actually a very encouraging nice and kind, friendly, and he's generally much more kind and friendly with child-contestants, and even lets them stick his head on in guacamole if they win a challenge.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', your character undergoes a lot of quests than involve, rescuing and protecting children, and in some extreme cases, providing food for impoverished ones. The children's Week event is the biggest example, where you have to act as a mentor to an orphaned child. (Although success in doing so means doing things few sane guardians would, like taking them on the battlefield and into dungeons with you. Also, the Bad Example achievement - which requires scarfing down candy in front of them - and Home alone achievement - which is ''abandoning'' them - are oddly enough necessary for the overall achievement For the Children.)

God help you if you're dumb enough to harm a child in the presence of someone with this character trait. [[BerserkButton They do not]] [[PapaWolf like that]] [[MamaBear at all]]. (Then again this trope is a trait of Jesus [see right], and by extension God Himself, so you may not get that help.)

* In the WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck fanfiction series, ''FanFic/NegaverseChronicles'', the Negaverse version of Quackerjack definitely qualifies. Even after he goes crazy, harming kids is a BerserkButton for him and he likes to make kids happy when he encounters them.

** Aside from getting even with the antagonists, Buster Bunny also helps out kids who have been or may have been victimized by them. Such examples include the short, "Ruffled Ruffee" (part of "Music Day"), wherein he saves a bunch of kids from being bored to death by the titular arrogant children's entertainer, and the short, "Buster's New Bike" (part of "Son of the Wacko World of Sports"), wherein he exposed Bicycle Bob as a con-artist bicycle salesman who sells shoddy bikes to kids. Also, in the short, "Turtle Hurdle" (part of "The Wide World of Elmyra"), he interrupts the segment [[DontTryThisAtHome to warn the kids watching the show NOT to attempt what Elmyra had just done]] (telling her dad to suddenly stop the car in the middle of the busy road so she can run out in traffic to save her pet turtle).
-->'''Buster:''' Hi kids! I just have one thing to say. Please, please PLEASE don't ever ever EVER get out of a car and cross a busy highway or street!

* The titular protagonist of ''Film/TheToxicAvenger'' film series is shown helping out children at one point in just about every movie. It's especially notable in the third film, where Satan tries to get to Toxie by forcing him to give up lest he kill a busload of children.

Added DiffLines:

* Zack and Stella of ''VideoGame/AsdivineHearts'' grew up in an orphanage and, as such, are both really good with handling and taking care of kids. Harming or threatening kids is also a shared BerserkButton between them.

* Linkara of ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' always welcomes the idea of children and families being portrayed positively in comic books, and one of his BIGGEST [[BerserkButton Berserk Buttons]] is a child character being killed or otherwise endangered solely for the sake of shock value or plot contrivance.

* Dean Winchester from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' seems to like children. When they have to work with a kid, [[TheFace Dean seems to do a lot of the talking]], but Sam seems to like them, too. Ironically, in the third episode, Dean uses the "I think kids are great" as a cheesy chat-up line to a [[StacysMom MILF]], and Sam calls him out on it, pointing out [[NameOne "name three kids you even know."]] However, for the rest of the series, including that episode, Dean does indeed get on well with children.

Naturally, harming or refusing to protect children is a pretty good way to [[BerserkButton piss him off]].

* Creator/GeneWilder recognized just how iconic his role as [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] was and adored how children always lit up when they recognized him. For the last three years of his life, he suffered from Alzheimer's but this was not made public until after he died. Why? Because he didn't want them to feel sorry for "poor old Mr. Wonka." He didn't want to be responsible for one less smile in the world.
