* The ''Comicbook/SinCity'' short story, ''Silent Night'', definitely showcases [[BadAss Marv's]] soft spot for kids. This soft spot also seems to override his chivalry toward women as shown when he [[spoiler: executes a female slave trader in order to save a little girl from sexual slavery]].

* ''Series/{{Between}}:''
** This is pretty much true of all the residents of Pretty Lake as there are mostly only children left, but special mention goes to GentleGiant, Gord, and KnightTemplar ,Melissa, for taking care of the youngest children in town.



** Seeley Booth of is very fond of children and doesn't take lightly to cases invading child death or child abuse (this makes sense as he was physically abused by his dad.)

* 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, he replied, "No," and left. We do not know what happened to that policeman, but the family survived and remembered his action that day.

* ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'': Deus is a mildly creepy version. He's not a pedophile or anything, it's just the violent ''glee'' with which he is happy to help children.
-->'''Galatean Girl:''' My mom says you killed the evil tyrant and now we have food and houses and television, so I made this for you! ''[offers him a clay bowl]''\\
'''Deus:''' Angel, I would kill a thousand tyrants for you.

** 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.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', a number of characters could be said to be this, but none so much as [[spoiler: the Winter Soldier]], of all people. {{Badass}} SuperSoldier and master assassin he might be, but he holds onto the fact that he WouldntHurtAChild like his life depends on it, [[spoiler: performs a HeelFaceTurn to save the life of a teenage girl]] and ruffles the hair of a little girl who hugged him after he saved her friend.

* [[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''.

** Clara, who's introduced as a Nanny and later becomes a Teacher. The version of her from Victorian England likewise was a Governess.
** The Twelfth Doctor takes a different approach than his predecessor. Eleven was OneOfTheKids, Twelve behaves more like a big brother. This leads to a gigantic, tragic situation in "The Magician's Apprentice". [[spoiler: He helped save the life of young '''Davros, creator of the Daleks'''. He fled in shame and horror upon realizing what he'd done, not even finishing the rescue effort, and in the present he's faced with the chance to go back and kill the boy after the adult drives him to the Despair Event Horizon]]...
*** In "Face The Raven", Clara is quick to remind him during his FreakOut swearing revenge against [[spoiler:Ashildr, the trap street, and everyone in it]] that his rampage would be stopped the moment a child started to cry.

** The Twelfth Doctor takes a different approach than his predecessor. Eleven was OneOfTheKids, Twelve behaves more like a big brother.
*** In Series 8, one of the first signs that he isn't just a GrumpyOldMan with NoSocialSkills is his genuine concern for and liking of children, as seen in "Listen" and "In the Forest of the Night", although this is tempered by his BrutalHonesty. He befriends fifteen-year-old troublemaker Courtney Woods in "The Caretaker", but his decision that's she's not companion material leads into the crisis of "Kill the Moon" when Clara demands he make that up to the girl...
