Added DiffLines:

* Foul mouthed and snarky though they may be, half-elven twins Vax'ildan and Vex'ahlia from ''WebSeries/CriticalRole'' definitely fit the bill, having been born from an encounter between a human peasant and an elven noble. And while sometimes brutal [[GoldFever (and definitely greedy, in the case of Vex'ahlia)]], they are genuinely good people who will go out of their way to protect their friends and help others in need.

Added DiffLines:

* Flynn Rider of ''{{Disney/Tangled}}'' is [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar heavily implied]] to be one. [[spoiler:His real name is Eugene Fitzherbert. [[GeniusBonus Historically]], attaching the prefix "Fitz" to a name designated the bearer as the illegitimate child of the man with the unaltered name. So Flynn is the illegitimate son of a man named Herbert. This adds an extra layer to his backstory of being an unwanted orphan.]]

** The bastards Addam of Hull and Alyn, apparently bastards of the deceased Laenor Velaryon (or, more likely, Laenor's father Lord Corlys Velaryon, who didn't want his wife to be offended), who are legitimized at the request of their "grandfather", becoming heirs to Driftmark. Despite Rhaenyra taking the actions of two other dragonseed, the Two Betrayers, as proof bastards are treacherous, forcing Addam to flee, Addam heroically gathers an army to fight Rhaenyra's enemies, dying in the process. His brother succeeds Corlys as Lord of Driftmark and becomes known as Oakenfist for his naval victories.

** Played with on Brynden Rivers "Bloodraven", one of [[TheCasanova Aegon IV's]] "The Unworthy" many bastards. He assists his legitimate brother Daeron II against their half-brothers ([[TheEvilPrince Daemon Blackfyre]] and [[BastardBastard Aegor Rivers "Bittersteel"]]) but seems to have resorted to rather extreme methods against these relatives, making him quite an AntiHero. However, his methods may have been necessary, considering the very real threat the Blackfyres posed. Eventually Brynden's extreme actions forced Daeron's grandson Aegon V to send him into exile. [[spoiler:Currently it's unclear whether Bloodraven is working with the Others or against them.]]

** Ser Glendon "Flowers" (who insists he is Glendon Ball) plays with this. He claims to be the son of Quentyn Ball "Fireball" (considering his mother was a camp follower slept with a lot of men around the time this is dubious) and at first comes across as a jerk to Dunk for his support of the Blackfyres. However he turns out to be a very good jouster and closer to the knightly ideal then many of the knights at a Tourney, [[spoiler:who were being bribed to lose to Daemon II Blackfyre]].

* George R.R. Martin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has bastards of all sorts in a wide variety of temperaments. The most notable and heroic is Jon Snow, who is raised as the bastard son of Lord Eddard Stark. Jon's estrangement from the Stark family - although most of them treat him well most of the time, he is still very much made aware that he's not really one of them - spurs him to leave the household and join the Night's Watch. It is possible that the half-brother to whom he was closest - the eldest, Robb - may have, in his will, [[spoiler: officially adopted him into the family and named him as heir, as he talked to his mother of doing]], but Jon does not know this yet. [[spoiler:It is a popular fandom theory that Jon is not Eddard's son but the son of Eddard's sister Lyanna Stark, and [[TheAce Prince Rhaegar Targaryen]], both deceased, and that Eddard has passed Jon of as his bastard to keep him safe - a wise move, given [[DeathByAThousandCuts what]] [[YourHeadAsplode happened]] to Rhaegar's other children]].
