* ''Film/StrokerAce'' has Pembrook Feeney, Torkle's advertisement organizer. She is a Sunday school teacher, will not drink, smoke, or swear to save her life, always has a bright and cheerful disposition, and is only shaken when Torkle attempts to jump her. Stroker has to work at getting her drunk, and, even after she passes out, she never faults Stroker for it and instead cries tears of joy that he did not take advantage of her. [[NotWhatItLooksLike Although she never gets the chance to explain this to Lugs before he goes to slug Stroker]].

** In the comics Superman tends to be a lot closer to this trope than his animated counterpart, mainly because he [[GenreSavvy consciously]] ''tries'' to be this due to fear about the amount of damage he could do with just one act of bad judgement.

* The premise of ''Incorruptible'' is that the supervillain Max Damage has decided to become an example of this after seeing the Plutonian become a [[BewareTheSuperman monster]] in ''ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}''. He is GenreSavvy enough to realize that the world will fall apart without a BigGood like the Plutonian (before he went evil), and Max figured he might as well step up and fill the void.

*** [[ContinuitySnarl Maybe.]] In ''[[Literature/CiaphasCain Cain's Last Stand]]'', an ''entire mission'' of Sisters is corrupted by MindControl. Other works have them corrupted too, like the graphic novel ''Daemonifuge'', and some of the epilogues of ''[[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Dawn of War: Soulstorm]]'' ([[FanDiscontinuity if it exists]], or [[MultipleEndings it was what happened]]).

Even so, still ''much'' fewer than any other branch of the Imperium save the Grey Knights.



** The thirteenth company of the Space Wolves have been fighting in [[NegativeSpaceWedgie the Eye of Terror]], uncorrupted, for approximately ''ten thousand years''.
*** Though that has a lot to do with them being already corrupted [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent in a different way.]]

** Minerva [=McGonagall=] may be a straighter example, as she is arguably the most morally upright character in the series - though she isn't above bending or breaking rules [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight when it's the right thing to do]].
** Luna Lovegood, despite seemingly being Hogwarts' resident CloudCuckoolander, is very pleasant, kind, and optimistic.

** Goku's sons Gohan and Goten are also this. Which is what allows them to ride the Nimbus cloud before learning how to fly.

In fantasy stories, this might allow the hero access to [[HolyHandGrenade holy weapons]] or magic for OnlyThePureOfHeart. Might lead to a {{Hundred Percent Adoration|Rating}} or [[HundredPercentHeroismRating Heroism Rating]]. Be wary that they might be TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth. Also very likely to be a CelibateHero -- this is one of the cases where AManIsNotAVirgin does not apply.

* Taken UpToEleven with Sylvette in ''Literature/DieAlchimistin'', who is a sweet, adorable, all-loving five-year-old (with HairOfGoldHeartOfGold to complete the list). Later, over the course of seven years, she is: [[spoiler:kidnapped, put into enchanted sleep for two years, forced to have sex with her own father (against his will as well), forced to live in the sewers and tunnels under the city of Vienna, a mother at the age of eight, separated from her daughter, and finally forced to live with her dying father in a dark castle on a remote island watched over by the Big Bad's minions]]. When [[spoiler:her elder sister]] finds her, Sylvette is just as kind, sweet and gentle as before.

** The most pure human character in all the books is definitely Peniel, the blind beggar that Jesus healed on the Sabbath. He has been abused, horribly mistreated, and called a mistake even since he was born, even by his own family. The only person who ever loved him, his older brother, [[spoiler: drowned when he was a child after jumping into the water to save him. His [[AbusiveParents Mother]]still blames him over ten years later and flat out says that he is a abomination who should have died instead.]] The series continues to KickTheDog in various ways. [[spoiler: He loses his last gift from his brother, a bowl, when his tormentors smash it; his parents kick him out of their home and shun him, even some fellow outcasts hate him.]] Despite it all he is one of the sweetest, most cheerful, and most hopeful people in the series. When he gets a good amount of money begging, he often shares it with his fellow beggars who are worse off (despite many of them being ungrateful) and,when given the first flower from a sacred bush, he gives it to a woman who recently lost two young children during riots. He also has an extremely strong faith; at one point, he humbly states that he has no right to be called knowledgeable about scripture, and honestly asserts that his only ambition is for the Messiah to come and relive him of his suffering. Despite not being a priest, who were believed the only ones capable of such a thing, he is often visited in his dreams by the spirits of important Jewish patriarchs; the visits started as a child, when he prayed to God for someone to talk to about scripture because he was lonely.

* Pit and [[spoiler: Dark Pit]] from ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' have shown themselves to be this. The best example is the Mirror of Truth, which is supposed to reflect the dark side of someone who looks into it. Pandora tricked Pit into breaking it and creating Dark Pit, but Dark Pit ends up being neutral at worst. However the game implies that [[spoiler: Dark Pit is just as pure or more pure hearted than Pit as shown in the Chaos Kin arc. Viridi says that the Chaos Kin only feeds on the purest of souls and the Chaos Kin idol states that Dark Pit was needed to be revived. Hades also says that Pittoo's soul is different from the rest of the souls he could eat.]] In other words, [[spoiler: Pit's darkness is also pure]] which says something about his character.

* A completely Paragon [[{{Franchise/MassEffect}} Commander Shepard]] falls square in this category. Of course, being the greatest soldier in the galaxy, s/he will end up with a bodycount few can rival, but his/her pureness can be high enough to convince [[BrainwashedAndCrazy heavily]] [[MoreThanMindControl indoctrinated]] individuals to [[DyingAsYourself commit suicide]] instead of fighting him/her. ''TWICE''. S/He also has quite the effect on various mob bosses: one of them can go from ruthless to respectable leader of a space station, while another can be convinced to ''turn to charity work instead''. However, to truly fit the trope, the player must restrain from using any Renegade Interrupt. That's right, [[{{Awesome/MassEffect}} even the blade-breaking one]].
* Much like with Shepard, it depends on player choices; but [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins the Warden]], [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Hawke]], and [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition the Inquisitor]] can all be played this way in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' games.

* Somewhat subverted or parodied with Joyce from the {{Walkyverse}}. She was so innocent that she was the only one immune to the Aliens' torture of choice: being forced to watch ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic''. So they showed her pornography instead. Despite being a college student, she had no idea of how human sexuality worked, and this [[HeroicBSOD messed her up]] so badly that she used an alien memory erasure device to delete ''all her memories'', and it takes her years to get them back. Although she has since matured to the point where "pre-marital hanky-panky" no longer bothers her (and she frequently engages in such with her fiancé Walky), she is still the nicest, sweetest, most innocent person you are likely to ever meet.
