* ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' is not only impossibly skilled and talented but also morally upright.

* Snow White in ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'', is considered this by most people. [[spoiler: By the end of Unmarked, she was the only one who did not kill anybody during Cranberry's game. This is later pushed even further after Unmarked in ''Snow White Raising Project'', even after everything Pythie has done, Snow White still chose to spare her]]. Despite what most magical girls would say about her, she is ''[[DeconstructorFleet far]]'' from ideal.



* Jonathan Joestar from ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', he is merciful, polite and benevolent, and will always invoke DefeatEqualsFriendship to his enemies. This is compared to...[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold most]] [[GoodIsNotNice of]] [[AntiHero his]] [[SirSwearsALot descendants]] who do not share his lofty ideals.

* ''Film/MaryPoppins'' is [[LampshadeHanging explicitly stated to be]] "practically perfect in every way".
* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Luke Skywalker [[HeroicArchetype was designed to be one]]. Contrast him to [[AntiHero Han Solo]], and ''especially'' to [[APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil his own father]]. While Luke wanted to save Leia out of sympathy, Han only did so because Luke promised that Leia is a rich princess who would reward Han.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': Played with in [[Characters/XMenFilmSeriesProfessorCharlesXavier Professor X]]'s case. On the one hand, he's an AllLovingHero who wishes to preserve life, he practices ForHappiness as part of his daily routine, he's brimming with [[AllegoricalCharacter compassion, hope and love]], his GoalInLife is for mutants and humans to live together in harmony, he endeavours to induce a HeelFaceTurn in Magneto and Mystique, and he was a WideEyedIdealist when he was younger. However, Xavier periodically slips into moral lapses when his dread over a likely disaster overrides his good nature, such as [[Film/XMenTheLastStand burying the Phoenix deep inside Jean Grey's subconscious without her awareness or permission]]. In between 1963 and 1973, he undergoes a HeroicBSOD which degenerates him into a [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast junkie hermit]] who doesn't give a rat's ass about anything (besides alcohol and the addictive PowerNullifier serum) or anyone (besides his caregiver Hank). Charles breaches his once-sacred ThouShaltNotKill principle in ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' when the eponymous villain leaves him with no other solution to SaveTheWorld.

* Leonhardt Raglen in ''VideoGame/RecordOfAgarestWar'' is the most heroic protagonist out of the entire series as he is selfless, responsible, all-loving, willing to sacrifice his life for a little girl who is hunted by his very own nation, and is {{Badass}} enough to kill the guy who killed him in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* When he finally stops being TheGhost or TheFaceless in the second season of ''Supergirl2015'', {{Superman}} lives up to his reputation of being TheCape and TheParagon. Essentially the only bad things you can say about this version of him is that he's initially suspicious of Lena Luthor because of her family name and has an understandable disagreement with J'onn, which they work out.

Added DiffLines:

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} is usually torn between her desire to become the same kind of selfess, 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.
