* Latios from ''Fanfic/ANewChanceSeries'' is extremely loyal to Ash and ready to fight against evil. He is also cold and withdrawn, especially around other humans, his need to [[BigBrotherInstinct protect his younger sister]] Latias can grate on her, and in battle he can be ''vicious'' toward the antagonists, to the point of scaring Ash. Highlights include putting the bunch of poachers in a permanent coma, nearly killing a defeated band of Team Magma agents and [[spoiler: and crushing to death the poacher Rico for selling Larvitar's mother.]]

** Bianca herself is far less nice. She smashed Brock into the ground for trying to flirt with her. Her concern for Latios and Latias means she can give Ash a lot of crap for using them in battle, [[spoiler: and she had zero sympathy for Team Rocket [[EntitledBastard when they begged Ash]] to save their Pokemon from Rico]].

* Meta Knight in the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars anime]] acts as a TricksterMentor to Kirby, training him and helping him, but being rather distant. Also notable: in his first appearance he speed-trained Kirby to wield a sword... by beating the crap out of him and pointing out all his mistakes. Other times he's cool and distant and generally only directly helps Kirby when his life is in danger.

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Inner Moka generally fights to protect [[LoveInterest Tsukune]], but is often annoyed when she's called forth to deal with such problems as the other members of Tsukune's UnwantedHarem fighting over him in the human world and nearly breaking TheMasquerade in the process. What really sealed her as this trope is her defeat of Kurumu early on in the manga: to make sure she never tried to attack them again, Inner Moka fully intended to rip off Kurumu's wings and tail, and would have done so if Tsukune didn't talk her out of it.

The nicest of the main characters are the various members of the Stark family, who are kind enough to ''personally'' execute criminals rather than keep an executioner on staff.

** This has been one of Wesley's defining characteristics since his early days on ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]],'' although it becomes even more noticeable after he [[TookALevelInBadass takes a few levels in badass]]. When things are quiet, he can be perfectly amiable, but when there's something bigger at stake, he's more interested in getting results than being nice. Long-term solutions are much more important to Wesley than short-term politeness.

* ''{{Fable 2}}'' invokes this by having a Pure/Corrupt alignment scale in addition to the regular Good/Evil scale for player characters. Your character can become corrupt by doing morally reprehensible, but not per se "evil" actions (like drinking too much, having multiple spouses or charging too much rent), while remaining fundamentally good. The title for being both Good and Corrupt at once is "The Decadent". Conversely, a character can also be Pure Evil and obtain the title "The Fanatic" (Pure Evil is not what it sounds like, that would be the Corrupt Evil alignment, which awards the title "The Ghoul").

* Temperance Brennan in ''Series/{{Bones}}'' is brilliant but arrogant and insensitive. She has dedicated her her to catching murderers, and spends her days dissecting and analyzing corpses. She has developed a matter of fact attitude towards death and decay, and often forgets that not everyone shares her calm, professional view. As a result, she thinks nothing of thoughtlessly spewing the graphic details of a murder to grieving loved ones, or showing gory images to a class of young children.
