* Anime/CaptainHarlock. In spite of a government that actively tries to stop him, a world that sees him as little more than a common criminal, he still remains firmly on the side of good. He fights for everyone's freedom, not merely his own, and he will continue to fight until all that remains are his bones. [[spoiler: Even the incident that cost him his eye won't stop him; the man is that dedicated to his ideals and what he stands for, such that even blood is only a minor deterrent in the end.]]

* Touma Kamijou from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. The guy will do anything, say anything, help anyone, fight anyone ([[WouldHitAGirl gender be damned]]), and throw himself in front of any person who is in need simply because he wants to. His IncorruptiblePurePureness is so intense that he's even gotten multiple (and in some cases, [[PhysicalGod all-powerful]]) [[HeelFaceTurn villains]] to join his side.

* While he's definitely more [[PragmaticHero pragmatic]] and [[BloodKnight battle-hungry]] than most on this list, Saitama post CharacterDevelopment from ''Anime/OnePunchMan'' is increasingly like this, finding a point to his otherwise [[ComicallyInvincibleHero completely unsatisfying]] heroic career by being a model to other heroes: humble, just, and kind to people who deserve it. Which, given how he originally wanted to be a hero [[GlorySeeker to get famous]], is a rather large shift.

When executed poorly, an ideal hero can exemplify any of an array of the worst of good guy tropes, like StupidGood, LawfulStupid, and -- in the worst cases -- even a KnightTemplar who refuses to allow any deviation from his strict moral code.

* ''WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph'': Fix-It Felix Jr. is the ideal hero. The film Wreck-It Ralph itself satirizes the cliché, tedious personality of the ideal hero.

* Maka Albarn from ''Manga/SoulEater'' eventually becomes this. She starts out a bit short tempered, but over time, becomes a responsible, courageous, strong, caring, kind, honorable, intelligent and selflfless young girl.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} is usually torn between her desire to become the same kind of selfless, responsible and brave hero than her cousin is, her responsibilities given by her incredible powers and her need to live a normal life like a normal girl/woman. Although she always makes mistakes and missteps, she eventually develops into this.
* Franchise/Nightwing is an example played absolutely straight. Despite being a BadassNormal without the advantages of other characters, he's a compassionate idealist to the degree that ''Superman'' admires him. As ''Screenrant.com'' [[http://screenrant.com/best-nightwing-stories-comics-ranked/ put it]], "while Batman fights in the name of vengeance, Nightwing does it because itís the right thing to do."

* Franchise/SpiderMan is mostly this in his own series and team ups, [[MyGreatestFailure aside from doubting himself]], [[CloudCuckooLander being a goofy motor mouth]] and being [[ButtMonkey generally awkward]], he is Marvel's most lovable and warm hearted hero who always does the selfless and right thing for anyone and anything in his career only second or rivaling the Captain himself and in the future is destined to be the greatest hero of all according to Cable.
