* The grumpy, snarky, conspiracy-theorizing John Munch of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' is routinely shown to have a very soft side for children. One episode had him reading ''Goodnight Moon'' to a little girl who was left hospitalized in a near-vegetative state by her mother's abuse. Subverted in "Sick" with toy company owner Billy Tripoli, who hosts lavish parties for sick and poor kids -- and picks "special" ones out to molest. [[spoiler:He winds up a KarmaHoudini thanks to the actions of greedy adults looking for payoffs.]] He's a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Music/MichaelJackson, whose second child molestation scandal was playing out at the time (2004).

** Olivia Benson, natch, has quite the knack with kids despite never having any of her own, for various reasons. She loves kids, and they love her right back. [[spoiler:In season 15, she winds up taking custody of, and later legally adopting, an infant boy caught up in a major sex trafficking bust. Needless to say, she ''loves'' getting to finally be a mom.]]
** Nick Amaro, despite his hotheadedness, is great with kids. As he's the father of a little girl, it's not surprising.
** Ditto Elliot Stabler, who is also a hothead, but is married with children and deals very well with them during cases.
** Sonny Carisi, as the older brother to three younger sisters, is ''fantastic'' with children, including taking to surrogate fatherhood like a duck to water ([[spoiler:His partner, Amanda Rollins, becomes unexpectedly pregnant and has no idea how to raise a kid; as one of her closest friends and very experienced at caring for youngsters, Carisi helps her out considerably with her daughter]]). He's also great with kids in the interview room.

* Stuffy, and slightly aloof [[AutomatedAutomobiles K.I.T.T.]] from ''Series/KnightRider'' is routinely shown to have a surprisingly soft spot for children. This may be in part that most children tend not to FreakOut when first meeting him, as adults often do.

** He rescues dozens of them from mind-controlling music in "Jack and the Rave". As the fifth season shows, the same children - now adults - still remember and revere him as a savior.

* In ''Franchise/HarvestMoon", the main character is usually always instant friends with the children, even the shy ones. This becomes even more apparent in games where a character that lived in the same village as the child ''for years'' frightens them, yet the MC as a total stranger gets instantly accepted as a new friend.

** Wapol was originally a cruel tyrant, but after being ousted and hitting rock bottom, he discovered he could make toys using his powers, and kids started to ''love'' him. He was able to build up his wealth and power back again from the ground up (even gaining respect from the World Government) by building a toy factory.
