* Quite a few {{Fanon}} portrayals of [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Finland]] peg him as one of these. Considering he's a mix of BadassAdorable and BoisterousBruiser as well as how {{Badass}} ColdSniper [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simo_H%C3%A4yh%C3%A4 Simo Häyhä]] hailed from his land, it's not hard to put two and two together...

* Kurz Weber from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' is a former fashion model, LovableSexManiac, and generally a sociable and talkative guy who, when temporarily assigned to cover bodyguarding Kaname in Sousuke's place, introduced himself directly to her and her friend, playing FunnyForeigner and getting the girls to take him out for karaoke. True to the trope, he's also an expert sniper who once managed to take out a {{Humongous Mecha}}'s machine gun by firing into its barrel... from the bed of a speeding pickup truck. The LightNovels eventually reveal that Kurz made a conscious choice to avoid becoming a ColdSniper following his training with one of them.
-->'''Kurz:''' This is Uruz 6, I'm in firing position. It's time to party!! *snipe, snipe, snipe*



* Nadie in ''Anime/{{El Cazador De La Bruja}}'' is a rather nice and personable girl, who is very very skilled with her pistol and will not hesitate to kill you.
* As a CaptainErsatz of Kurz, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'''s [[Pantheon/{{Weapons}} Lockon Stratos]] also qualifies - [[spoiler:both of them, but especially the original]].
* Jemmy Jay "JJ" Adams in ''{{Manga/FAKE}}'' is a CrazyJealousGuy and the precinct's resident {{Keet}}. He's also the best shot in the precinct and, with Ryo, serves as the department's sniper whenever one is called for. Ryo is a pretty pleasant guy himself, but a bit too reserved and not outgoing enough to meet the trope description.
* Awesomely, [[BattleButler Watari]] from ''Manga/DeathNote'' turns out to be one of these.
* The eponymous lead of ''Anime/{{Madlax}}'' is a formidable sniper and very friendly.

* Yoko from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* Vice of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Cheerful, personable, laid-back, and can snipe the head of a running target from a moving helicopter even though there's an ally obscuring his line of sight.
** His partner, Storm Raider, is a Friendly Sniper ''Gun''.
* Usopp from ''OnePiece'' is a wacky GadgeteerGenius more inclined to cower in terror of a fight than to pick one. He's still fully capable of drilling a man between the eyes at using only a slingshot.
-->'''Usopp:''' [[BadassBoast I'm the sniper; support is glory! Unnoticed by others, I shoot down the enemy to protect my friends!]]
** He's commonly one of the trio of most energetic characters on the ship. One of the quartet once Brook joins up.
* Gain Bijou from ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' is a laid-back TheCasanova who can shoot down any Overman the Siberian Railroad tries to stop the Exodus with. And he does so in an obsolete Silhouette Machine ([[spoiler:at least, until he upgrades to the Emperanza]]), so he also counts as a BadassNormal.
* Lynette Bishop of the ''Anime/StrikeWitches''.
* ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' has Garuru, who very amiable and friendly, especially towards his baby brother Giroro... in the manga, at least. The anime, however, [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] him into more of a ColdSniper and AloofBigBrother. This partly has to do with timing: the manga introduces him while he's helping the platoon escape when a medical exam causes their mission to almost be canceled, while the anime waited until the [[WhamEpisode Wham Arc]] of his platoon being sent to replace them.
