* Jaina Proudmoore in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' is a blondie with a heart of gold, as she continued to be one of the promoters of peace between The Alliance and The Horde. Until she broke due to the destruction of Theramore, in which [[WhiteHairBlackHeart her hair got bleached into 90% white and then she lost her peaceful attitude and becomes a warmonger out of grief.]]

** Pre-Crisis Kara was an absolutely sweet, innocent child. She stopped being gullible when she grew up, and her adult self had quite the temper, but she always was a nice, selfless person.

** Kenny (who was shown to be blond in TheMovie) is a subvversion. He's more heroic than the three other main members of his gang, but isn't above [[TheHedonist excessive sex and drugs for his own amusement]]--and he's only ''ten''. He also parodies this trope as "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Princess Kenny]]" by using a long blonde female wig ([[StylisticSuck badly]]) to dress up as a typical example of this trope (especially [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]]), but [[spoiler: turns out to be a ''villain'' in this persona]] in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''.

** Kenny (who was shown to be blond in TheMovie) is a subvversion. He's more ambivalent example. Despite his perverted sense of humor, heavily swearing, drug use and being a sexually precocious 10 year old, he is also depicted as heroic than the three other main members (especially in [[spoiler:his Mysterion persona]]),very empathetic when it comes to his friends and sister and smart. Many of his gang, but isn't above [[TheHedonist excessive sex and drugs deaths have been acts of heroic self-sacrifice (like in TheMovie when he wishes for his own amusement]]--and he's only ''ten''. everything to be back to normal despite knowing he'll go to hell in the process). He also parodies this trope as "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Princess Kenny]]" by using a long blonde female wig ([[StylisticSuck badly]]) to dress up as a typical example of this trope (especially [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]]), but [[spoiler: turns out to be a ''villain'' in this persona]] in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''.in''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''.

* Early on in ''Series/{{The 100}}'', Clarke is the only blonde character on the show, and (except maybe for Wells) she's by far the most moral and compassionate member of the 100. However, while she never gets any less blonde, the "heart of gold" aspect is [[HadToBeSharp quickly eroded by the harsh conditions on the Ground]]; by the time Episode 7 rolls around, and she's aiding in the [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique torture/interrogation]] of a prisoner, it's fair to say the trope no longer applies.

* [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Cassiopeia]] in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'', who decides to abandon her life as a Socialator to become a Med Tech. Other than her past life, she is sweet and kind, often looks after Boxey and even takes care of an ill-ridden Adama in "The Young Lords".
* Lucrezia in ''Series/TheBorgias'' starts out this way, although between her [[BreakTheCutie abusive first marriage]] and [[CorruptTheCutie scheming family]] it doesn't last.



* Despite working for years in the worst slums of London's East End, ''Series/CallTheMidwife'''s young, lovely, devoted, soft-spoken Sister Bernadette remains as kind and hopeful as ever, her spirit shining as brightly as her seldom-seen golden hair. After enduring a crisis of faith over her calling when she falls in love with local physician Dr Turner, she comes out of it [[spoiler:radiantly in love and determined to continue serving God as a wife, mother, and midwife]].



* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' has had three female characters that fit this mold.
** The first was Emma Nelson, who was a trusting SoapboxSadie nature lover until reality happened and she fell off the path. She fit up until Season 3 or 4, when she suddenly went to all sorts of impure, corrupt places and it went downhill from there.
** Then came Maya Matlin, a cute innocent band geek. She still mostly fits the mold but she's shown to have some bite to her when pushed, but her intentions stay mostly good. And it didn't take much to put her back on track.
** The writers played with this when Becky Baker was introduced, the faithful Christian. She's a "{{playing with|ATrope}}" example because several of her actions qualify as bigoted and evil, but at the same time her intentions were pure, just her reasoning and understanding was misguided. Once she learned better, she's just as optimistic and innocent as ever.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E6TheKingsDemons The King's Demons]]'', Hugh has this--a young knight valiant in his defense of his father.
* [[Comicbook/PatsyWalker Trish Walker]] from ''Series/{{Jessica Jones|2015}}'' is a more combative version of this (even taking krav maga lessons!). Specially in regards to AloofDarkHairedGirl Jessica, who Trish wished that could be heroic instead of a [[KnightInSourArmor cynical anti-heroine]].
* Subverted in ''Series/DeadOfSummer'': Amy Hughes was initially presented as a sweet, wholesome blonde girl who just wanted to be friends with everyone. Then [[WhamEpisode "Home Sweet Home"]] revealed that [[spoiler: she was actually an AxCrazy sociopath who had been secretly responsible for every terrible thing that had happened thus far]].
* Elyse Keaton from ''Series/FamilyTies'' fits the trope being a loving mother, a former flower child thus an ActualPacifist alongside her husband, and in general is a very kind-hearted and warm person.



* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'':
** Anna Fulford is a very young and very beautiful blonde with curly hair. She intuitively recognized that Detective Murdoch (suffering from IdentityAmnesia) is a good man, even though he was pursued by men who claimed he's a killer, and she decided to help him. She's a bit livelier that this archetype tends to be but she fits the trope very well.
** Mrs Enid Jones is very young, beautiful, and generally sweet and kind. She looks very timid and feminine, but she can take a good care of herself and her son. She has curly blond hair.
* ''Series/TheNewNormal'' has Goldie, a straight ally to gay couple David and Bryan. She stands up to her bigoted grandmother for them, and carries their baby.
