* Pastor Karen from ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods''. She's a very kind woman, is trying to open a homeless shelter, and gladly strikes up a friendship with Mae, despite Mae's religious beliefs (or lack thereof). She uses her faith as a tool to help people of all backgrounds, creeds, and lifestyles. [[spoiler:She privately admits her own faith in God is wavering, and she hopes that, by convincing other people to believe, she can convince herself, too.]]

* A lot of the priests encountered in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' tend towards this archetype. [[TheAtoner Runil]] is a priest of Arkay first encountered giving last rites over the grave of a child and comfort to her parents. [[NiceGuy Maramal]] is a friendly, community-oriented priest of Mara who will officiate your wedding, and his wife Dinya Balu is also a priestess of Mara who sends you on a quest to spread the love across Skyrim. [[GoodIsNotSoft Erandur]] is another priest of Mara [[spoiler:who used to be a follower of the Daedric prince Vaermina]] who takes it upon himself to rid Dawnstar of its nightmare plague in the name of his goddess [[spoiler:to atone for helping to cause it in the name of his Daedric prince]]. The various priests of [[WarGod Talos]] take this in a [[BadassPreacher different direction]], ministering to the populace as usual in open defiance of the infamous ban on Talos worship (which could result in their deaths by torture if the Thalmor catch them). Even the [[ChurchMilitant Vigilants of Stendarr]], no matter how you feel about them, [[WellIntentionedExtremist do what they do]] in the name of protecting humanity from the Daedra.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', nearly all of the lower-ranking priests of the Tribunal Temple count, despite the Temple itself having numerous CorruptChurch traits. Nearly all of the quests they offer involve healing the sick, delivering supplies to the poor, escorting pilgrims, and/or eliminating legitimate threats to the people of Morrowind. It isn't until you get up into the higher ranks, particularly the leadership of the ChurchMilitant[=/=]KnightTemplar Ordinators, that the corruption becomes evident.

* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** Ion from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is the figurehead of a rather CorruptChurch, so his power is limited. He is, however, very kind, willing to help the heroes at every turn, does not hold grudges and believes that adhering to the score religiously is not the only course of action.
** Ange from ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' has a reputation as a holy woman who will cure any malady or disability. She is able to make cripples walk, restore people's eyesight and rescue people at the brink of death. She is also self-sacrificing, kind to children and offers assistance to anyone in need.
