* ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'': Michael Caine's character Jasper is an aging Granola Guy, living in the woods ''naturally'' with his wife, growing a [[strike:new]] immensely popular variety of pot that has a strawberry flavor. It is implied that he was left without a choice but to withdraw from society after his wife was tortured by the government (Jasper himself had a career as a famous political cartoonist, which also didn't exactly fly under the new regime).

** They ''hate'' trees being chopped down. If you try to trade to an elven caravan anything made out of wood or anything derived from wood (like soap or clear glass[[note]]the production of both require minerals which are purified from wood ash[[/note]]) it will offend the caravan master so much he'll immediately leave. In previous versions of the game visiting elven diplomats would demand that you'd set a yearly maximum quota for tree cutting.

* Chrissie, Sally's ditzy sister in ''Film/AtlantiCity''. She thinks that Dave is a reincarnated soul who has had lives going back to ancient Egypt, she thinks that Jesus would be a Hare Krishna if he were still around, she feels no awkwardness over sleeping with her sister's husband, and she has no problem with Dave selling "dope" because "dope belongs to the whole world." When she finds out Dave has been murdered she doesn't mind, because that only means Dave will be reincarnated sooner.

** ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'' mitigates this somewhat, however-Magrat's cottage has traditionally housed thoughtful witches who carefully researched things and wanted to know, for example, when a spell calls for eye of newt, does left or right make a difference? Granny is a better witch because she knows it doesn't matter, but she nonetheless goes to Magrat for help when someone is poisoned because she knows that Magrat's beliefs do make her a better doctor.

On further thought, no, this is not critical for defining the character type. Comes off more like a defense of doctors, which is not even close to the point of the article.

They [[AllNaturalSnakeOil love alternative medicine]] and might refer to real doctors as "greedy allopaths." Seldom will she have a health problem worth seeing a doctor about, though, because any problem she might have is probably all in her head.
