* ''[[FanFic/KingdomHearts3FinalStand Kingdom Hearts 4: New Light]]'': Ryo is a MartialPacifist who is firmly convinced that ''everyone'' can be reasoned with and hates having to resort to violence. It takes getting near-fatally stabbed by Jazzy's WolverineClaws, followed by TrainingFromHell from Vanitas, for Ryo to finally accept that some people just ''can't'' be reasoned with and sometimes ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption.

** He falls into it ''again'' in "The Wrath of Tiger Claw," where he instantly believes Karai's claim that she now believes that Splinter is her true father and blows off Raph's objections. It never once occurs to him that Karai might be lying until she, having actually discovered the truth from Splinter, confesses and reveals the tracking device she just activated to lure Tiger Claw to their lair.
-->'''Karai''': I-I can't believe it. You're telling the truth! All these years, the Shredder has been lying to me!\\
'''Leo''': Wait, you can't believe it? I thought you ''did'' believe it. If you didn't believe it, why did you come down here?

* This, combined with HonorBeforeReason, is the key flaw of the Starks on ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Eddard is the worst, assuming the royal court must hold to ideas of honor and good play and is totally unprepared for how ruthless they can be and he pays the price. Robb follows in his footsteps with the mistake of assuming anyone entering into a treaty will naturally hold to it and not, say, get paid off by his enemies to lure him in.

Jon Snow also emulates his father and half-brother, believing that everyone will just set aside their differences and work together against a common threat, but he overestimates even the notion of self-preservation people have in the face of pride or spite like Alliser Thorne or Cersei Lannister.

* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' Iris tends to see everyone in most positive light possible. This is especially visible when it comes to her EvilTwin Dahlia. Iris saw her as misguided girl who turned out the way she did because no one loved her, even though Dahlia makes it clear that she ''never'' cared about anyone but herself. That being said [[spoiler: Iris makes it clear that if she knew about Dahlia's plans to kill her boyfriend she'd do anything to stop her [[BewareTheNiceOnes including]] [[GoodIsNotSoft killing]] [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend her]]. ]]

* In the Vertigo series ''Hard Time'' Ethan is a 15 year old who takes part in a "prank" shooting at his school only to realize his friend is using real bullets. Sentenced to a maximum security prison, Ethan talks to a pair of lawyers about how he was ruthlessly bullied by the jocks and pretty girls at his school. He relates how he point blank asked the quarterback why he was doing this and the man just replied "because I hate you." The female attorney (an attractive black woman) is thrown, unable to understand this but her husband (a more nerdy white man) is quick to answer.
-->'''Lawyer:''' You'll have to forgive my wife. She was a triathlete champion at high school so she never had to endure the reality that teenagers don't need a reason to look down on others.
