* 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.

* ''Literature/TheBible'':
** Jesus, obviously and also Job, who is explicitly stated to be a flawless man.
** Subverted for the most part, however, as most of our Biblical "heroes" are clearly shown to be flawed, imperfect people. David, Moses, Samson, Simon and Paul are all examples of good people who make mistakes.

SubTrope to TheIdealist. SuperTrope to AllLovingHero, TheCape, KnightInShiningArmor, and CaptainPatriotic. While TheHero is often an Ideal Hero, the former is the role a character occupies in a group while the latter is a character personality. See also StandardizedLeader. Contrast AntiHero, a hero with character flaws, and CompleteMonster, a villain who is pure evil. Can overlap to some degree with one of either MartialPacifist, TechnicalPacifist, or ActualPacifist.

Added DiffLines:

* The {{Novelization}} of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' describes Obi-Wan Kenobi thusly. He is powerful and nearly invincible in combat, but he's also wise and humble, preferring to negotiate his way out of trouble.
