* Scrooge [=McDuck=] of Disney comics (such as ones by CarlBarks and Creator/DonRosa) and adaptations such as ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules will never resort to illegal or underhanded means to make money]] (The [[MyGreatestFailure one time he did]], he ended up [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin haunted by a zombie for several years]] - and [[SinsOfOurFathers Donald got chased as well several decades afterward.]]), but neither [[{{Greed}} will he donate a single penny to charity.]] He'll give you a (''really'' low-paying) job at the drop of a hat, though.
** DonaldDuck too. Especially when he's put in a blatantly heroic role, such as the ''KingdomHearts'' series. He might be selfish and temperamental, but when you get right down to it, he's nothing if not loyal to his friends.

** ''Creator/JamesCameron'' is portrayed as an unbelievably arrogant, egotistical, and gullible "hero" in ''Raising The Bar'', who is so obnoxious he forces his crew to listen to his ''theme music'' while he ignores their insistance that the "bar" is a metaphor. [[spoiler:In true South Park fashion the bar is real, he saves the whole world from degenerate media by raising it, and he denies accepting any credit or thanks for what he's done because "James Cameron does not do what James Cameron does for James Cameron."]]

** In Seraphim's defense they 'are' the angels of Truth, which can be painful at times. Plus the thing that really annoys many of them is the self depreciating lies that people tell themselves. Lying to yourself is one thing but even the most loathsome demons have the good sense to tell themselves 'happy' lies. Malakim don't need to be {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s, in fact the Archangel Laurence (who most Malakim not under Hostile A.A.s point to as their role model) is somewhere between a KnightInShiningArmor and a KnightTemplar depending on how GreyAndGrayMorality you want your game. Actually the most ProudWarriorRaceGuy in the game is Michael and he's a Seraph.

** Also, Giles. Despite how he acted in the first few seasons, he's often one of the most sarcastic and foul-mouthed people on the show (never picked up on by most due to him using mostly [[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch British swears]]). Plus, he'll kill humans if he must, an opinion only shared by him until Season 8, as seen when he [[spoiler: smothers Ben, the human host the of the [[PhysicalGod Hellgoddess]] to death with a handkerchief, as Ben squirms and tries to scream beneath him, in order to permanently kill the immortal goddess.]]

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': Sheldon. He is technically one if the good guys, but is also [[InsufferableGenius near]] [[TheFriendNobodyLikes intolerable,]] [[EntitledBastard demanding,]] [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic,]] [[CondescendingCompassion condescending,]] and [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating hated by almost everyone who knows him.]]

* Merrick in ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' starts out this way. He fights alongside the others, but he won't join them on their downtime,, Hans out in a bar when at least one team member is underage, and actively pushes them away when his personal demon comes back to claim him. He mellows as the season goes on, and by a few episodes before the end he's describing them as his friends.

** Jack T. Chance is Lobo with a Green Power Ring with all that implies. Because of that, he's been ordered to only patrol and protect one planet while every other Lantern gets a whole sector. While he's crude, brutal and all around very 90s. He did genuinely want to clean up the [[WretchedHive Hellhole]] that was his world.

** Twelve is ''so'' much this trope crossed with PragmaticHero that his character arc in Series 8 has him questioning whether he's actually good at all.

** Twelve is ''so'' much this trope crossed with PragmaticHero that his character arc in Series 8 has him questioning whether he's actually good at all. [[spoiler: The answer is that he's an 'idiot' who's always leaning and helps out whenever he can. Ultimately, the moral decisions should be left up to the people he's helping.]]

* Bakugou Katsuki from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''. He's one of the biggest [[JerkAss dicks]] in the series, but he's still technically a [[AntiHero hero]] - and heaven help anyone who tries to convince him otherwise.

* The Brotherhood of Steel in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' are some of the purest good guys in Fallout 1 and 3, and neutral in the other games. With some exceptions, they're also arrogant bastards who are more than willing to let innocents die in the pursuit of their long-term goals for the revival and salvation of humanity.
** ''New Vegas'' however has them gunning down unarmed humanitarians for daring to think about taking in a former member, and attacking anyone with any tech higher than a lightbulb This led to them starting a war with the other Good Is Not Nice faction, [[TheFederation the NCR]], because the NCR actually wanted to use their technology to improve the lives of citizens. By the events of New Vegas, the NCR has killed off most of the Brotherhood.
*** This is a plot point; the Brotherhood had suffered MotiveDecay by the time they declared war on the NCR, becoming too elitist and forgetting who they were supposed to be helping.
** Mind you, you can play your PlayerCharacter like this too, save everyone, but be a dick about it.
** The New California Republic is a post-war federation with a democratic government, a strong military, safe territories, and a very high standard of living by post-apocalypse standards. They're dedicated to the ideas of liberty, justice, and rule of law. However, their military can get heavy handed in their efforts to put down their enemies, their government is corrupt, and they do many morally questionable things over the course of the games, including hiring mercenaries to terrorize Vault City ([[KickTheSonOfABitch a racist, slavery-based city state]]), dealing with the Bishop crime family in order to annex New Reno, hunting down Enclave members who never took an active part in the Enclave-NCR War years after it is over, using 'enhanced interrogation' on prisoners, and occasionally shooting surrendering enemies. They're still by far the nicest faction in the series.

*** The [[Videogame/{{Fallout1}} first game]] gave us Set, leader of the Necropolis ghouls. Set is a massive {{Jerkass}} and openly contemptuous of everyone who is not a ghoul. However, as a leader his rule is quite righteous and just. He doesn't take violent action against those who oppose him, provides his town with clean water, allows outsiders to roam freely during daylight hours and refused to hand over the non-ghouls he claims to hate to the BigBad. All in all, his track record is far better than that of most wasteland leaders.
