** Elliot is also not on the government's (or most immortals') radar, for much the same reason. As Mr. Verres puts it, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1824 the guy was practically born wearing a scout uniform.]]

* ''Series/OurMissBrooks'':
** Harriet Conklin. Her motives are always displayed as unselfish or honest, in spite of her father Mr. Conklin being oft unprincipled and her boyfriend Walter Denton being an inveterate schemer and practical joker.
** Phillip Boynton, Miss Brooks' LoveInterest. He's considered by everybody to be the "soul of honesty". In "Trial by Jury", its revealed that trying to lie makes Mr. Boynton break into the hiccups.

* During Comic/InfiniteCrisis, Earth-Two's Kal-L claims that New Earth is a corruption of his world and that none of its heroes is worth protecting. But when Batman asks if that's true of [[Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]], Kal-L says no. Even the person wanting to merge the worlds together has to admit that Dick Gratson is just as wonderful in the "corrupted world".

* Terra Branford, of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. While she was mentally enslaved by the Empire and forced to do horrible things while being controlled, when she is freed she later becomes a pure-hearted protector. She ends up caring for a group of orphans in Mobliz whose parents were murdered by Kefka after the Apocalypse. Once she finds out who she is, she becomes a protector, who fights not to kill, but to protect and to ensure hope. Completely driven by love, she never has hatred in her heart.
** Co-star Celes Chere is described as having a spirit as pure as snow, but she plays more of TheAtoner as she has done past evil actions under free will due to being a general for the Empire. It can be said that she does fall under this trope later in the game, as the Empire tries to bring her back to their side on the Floating Island, but she refuses.

* Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. His [[AnimalStereotypes true form / inner animal]] is a pink bunny, in a world where humans are usually distorted as monsters or crippled abominations.
** The Links in general are described as having pure hearts. Combined with the Triforce of Courage, it's why only he/they can wield the [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement Master Sword]].
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' he is forcibly transformed into a wolf. Even in this bestial form, various characters note that it hasn't diminished his nobility one bit.
*** Interestingly enough, those characters who DON'T freak out when they see Wolf Link are usually innocent characters themselves (Agitha the wide-eyed bug collector and the innocent simpleton lantern salesman at Faron, among others)
** Princess Zelda herself also qualifies; in the linked games of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', she is specifically sought by the villain to be a human sacrifice for this precise reason.

** In a weird way, Valvatorez himself becomes this, thanks to Artina. He was a bloody tyrant, and so offended when Artina expressed no fear that he swore he would drink no blood until he showed her true terror. His failure to take this promise seriously led to her death (he was supposed to protect her, because he needed her alive to scare her). Remorseful, he keeps his promise and abstains from blood for ''400 years''. In the process he lost all his power, and is now a lowly Prinny instructor. He is now completely determined to keep any promises he makes [[HonorBeforeReason at all costs]]. He also cares for the Prinnies (who are the [[ButtMonkey butt monkeys]] of the universe), and enacts a Netherworld-wide campaign of reform to protect them.
** [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Flonne]] may be a [[TheDitz ditzy]] {{otaku}}, but she was personally selected by the Seraph to "assassinate" the Overlord because he ''knew'' she would be the one angel who utterly refused to believe that demons are incapable of love, befriend her target to prove it, and by doing so forge peace in the endless conflict between Celestia and the Netherworld.
** Somewhat more weirdly, ''[[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Raspberyl]]'' might be this, at least according to her DLC. She's a demon "delinquent", so she always attends class, obeys a self-inflicted curfew, and does volunteer work. This is delinquency because BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad in the Netherworld, and it's initially implied that this is merely a way to show how badass she and her friends are. But Raspberyl Mode reveals that it's more than that; she and Mao have been rivals since childhood, and it's this rivalry that keeps him motivated. When he drops into a funk after the events of the game, she strives to be even ''more'' delinquent by charging into Celestia and demanding to know how she can have the "heart of an angel". When Flonne gets her to admit that the reason she works so hard to be good is because she cares about Mao that much, she reveals that Raspberyl already ''has'' the heart of an angel.

** Mario's own brother Luigi is also this, being perfectly willing to face his fears in order to save his brother though easily scared. In Partners in Time, after the Star Gate gives Mario, Luigi, and the babies a SecretTestOfCharacter, he lets Luigi hit the Aurora Block, which can measure someone's heart. Luigi hits the Aurora Block, and it immediately grows gigantic and squishes him. Of course, this being AmusingInjuries, he survives. However, his paper counterpart is shown to be arrogant and a liar during Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, though it's played for laughs.

* 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 body count 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 refrain 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.

* In the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', this is a defining characteristic of a Cinderella. As explained in the fifth game, ''The Final Cinderella,'' "Cinderella" is not actually a name but a title conferred upon young women of exceptional goodness and purity of heart. There have been multiple Cinderellas over the centuries; this is a nod to the fact that the Cinderella story has been retold in dozens of different ways.
** The [[PlayerCharacter Fairytale Detective]] herself may also be this, judging by something stated in the tenth game. The Detective actually interacts directly with the Sun and Moon Goddesses, and the Moon Goddess tells her she doesn't have anything to fear from following their directives "because your heart is pure and your cause is just."
* ''WorldOfWarcraft'' has Tirion Fordring. He's a paladin, predictably. He's willing to lose his life, family, power, and everything he's ever known to save someone who saved him. Even after another rather pure paladin "strips" his powers and cuts off his connection to the Light (basically God in Warcraft), Tirion is STILL able to use his powers. The Light knows how pure Tirion is and won't stop supporting him just because of human laws. He's also able to purify a sword that was corrupted for years by pure evil just by touching it. And he shatters the demonic sword Frostmourne with a single touch from the sword he purified earlier. He also (barely) survives destroying something that is basically the EvilOverlord's SoulJar. Finally, he is willing to become the next Lich King to keep the Scourge in check (despite the Lich King being considered to be as vile as they come) before his brother persuades him to let him take the title instead.
* The titular heroine of ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'', [[MsFanservice despite the way she dresses]].As such, the [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Oubliette of Suffering]] refuses to take her in, [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth as she smells "sweet and lovely"]].

** Additionally, Carrot's cynical boss Sam Vimes may be about as far from a PuritySue as you can possibly get, but he's renowned the world over for being [[TheFettered completely incorruptible]]. (In ''Discworld/TheTruth'', after a couple of out of town criminals suggest bribing Vimes, the zombie lawyer Mr Slant responds with, "The last person who tried to bribe Commander Vimes is yet to regain full use of his fingers.") This is not out of a higher purity, but rather the development of a construct in his own mind to keep watch over his actions, [[{{Determinator}} created by his own willpower]]. Who watches the watchmen, indeed.

** Sora and Mickey are the "regular" version of this - though their hearts may not be pure light, they have pure and incorruptible spirits [[spoiler:though constant physical and mental battles against Darkness [[HeWhoFightsMonsters eventually eroded the former's enough]] that in ''3D'' Master Xehanort chose ''him'' in place of Riku as his [[GrandTheftMe 13th vessel]], and nearly fell completely to Darkness if not for Ventus's heart interfering]].
