** {{God}} himself also qualifies, he never lies and he never tolerates injustice and sins, but he still forgives and loves those who faithfully follow his path. And it never changes.

** Darnath Lysander, Captain of the Imperial Fists 1st Company, was lost in [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace the Warp]] for a millennium. When he finally got spat out again, he was captured by the Chapter's arch-enemies and tortured. He broke out of his prison, ''[[{{Badass}} unarmed]]'', and returned to his Chapter. The Chaplains and Apothecaries tested him for six months for any sign of taint. He passed, and was given command of his old company. He then proceeded to hand the asses of his captors to them on a silver platter.

* Likewise, one of the major themes of ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' is invoking, subverting and playing with this trope. Matt Murdock created the Daredevil persona in order to rectify his Catholic faith with the fact that he saw evil to be fought against, distancing the actions from his "real" self. Every writer of the character since FrankMiller likes to put Murdock through hell just to show that while someone pure of heart may bend when confronted with the evils of the world, ''he won't break''.

* Marth and his love interest Caeda were portrayed like this in ''FireEmblem [[FireEmblemAkaneia Dark Dragon and the Sword of Light]]'', and especially ''Mystery of the Emblem''. He was fair to everybody and was always innocent minded despite the evil things that happened to and around them. Reduced just slightly in Shadow Dragon but brought back in the remake of Mystery of the Emblem.

*The A.D Chronicles series, being a biblical historic fiction series about people affected by Jesus during his time on earth, has more than a few examples.
** Jesus himself, obviously, although the series shows exactly how pure and how remarkable it is even better then the bible at some points. The series is set during one of the most violent periods of Roman occupation, most of the Roman rulers (and quite a few of the Jewish ones) are [[TotalMonsters], most or the religious leaders are corrupt, self-severing, or stubborn, and quite a few of the main point-of-view characters aren't exactly saints.
** The most pure Human character in all the books is definitely Peniel, the blind beggar that Jesus heeled 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 [[Spoilers: 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 that should have died instead.]] Despite all that, and everything that he goes through throughout the series [[spoilers: 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]], He is one of the most sweet,cheerful,and 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 he was given the first flower from a sacred bush, he gave it to a woman he knew who had recently lost two young children during recent riots. He also has an extremely strong faith; at one point, he humbly stated that he has no right to be called knowable about scripture, and honestly asserted that his only ambition was for the messiah to come and relive him of his suffering.Despite not being a priest, who were considered the only ones capable of such a thing, he is often visited in his dreams by the spirits of the 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.
** Actually, the extent of Peniel's kind and innocent nature is a major point of confusion for other character's in the series, and also for characters from the follow up Jerusalem chronicles series. In bible times, being born blind or otherwise crippled or deformed was a sign that either your parents had sinned, or that you were inherently completely sinful and irredeemable. Either way, it was believed that you were destined for hell and that your disability was god's punishment on you in this world. Despite being jerks and not very good people, Peniel's parents were fairly well respected, so most people in the series generally believed that he was responsible for his own condition. However, his kind heart and cheerful nature confused many of the other characters because it completely turned the popular belief on it's head. His healing actually came about because a Jewish teacher told Jesus that he didn't understand; if disabled people were sinners, how could a blind beggar be such a good natured and honest person? [[spoiler: Jesus replied that that Peniel wasn't a sinner; he was born so that Jesus could show his true power, and that Peniel himself would bring people to god with his faith. It is both indirectly implied and more or less stated in the books that he is the living embodiment of 'blessed be the pure in heart, for they shall see god.']]

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11376451/8/Celestia-takes-a-vacation Celestia Takes a Vacation]]'', a casual conversation between Celestia and Siesta has Louise burrowing into her blankets to "get away from the sunbeams of innocence and purity". Afterwards, she cries to Princess Henrietta that the two of them are demons of pure evil compared to Siesta. This is especially noteworthy given that Louise normally sees peasants as being BeneathNotice.

* The list of people that Eclipso can't take over is absurdly small. However Eclipso was genuinely surprised at how little evil there was in Superman.
** In a similar vein, Manchester Black was shocked when Superman refused to kill him even after Manchester [[spoiler:apparently murdered Lois Lane]]. Manchester finally admits that Superman is a true hero, [[HeelRealization and that means Manchester isn't]].
* ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} is main example for this in all of Marvel. He always does the morally upright thing, even if doing so is insanely stupid (for example he constantly saves his attackers from deadly situations, and in the event of a villain vs. villain fight he'll side with the losing party to prevent one from killing the other).

to:

* Franchise/{{Superman}}:
** 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.

After Jo'nn states "Asmodel, [[BadassBoast you shall not pass]]," Superman [[BigDamnHeroes appears]] behind him and says "Stand down old friend. You've done enough. I'll take it from here." Superman and Asmodel clash with Asmodel shouting "Yield!" and Superman Retorting "[[TheDeterminator Never]]!". As a last straw, Asmodel blasts Superman with heavenly light which then has [[NoSell no effect]]. He then remarks "How can you stand the scouring light of heaven!? Only the purest souls can gaze upon this flame and not be driven mad!". So... yeah... Superman fought a renegade angel to a standstill '''''and''''' withstood the light of Heaven.

*** [[spoiler:Double subverted, according to leaked spoilers.]]
* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] is often shown in this light as well. Only the purest of heart are able to wield his hammer. The list of people able to do so is pretty short (so far Beta Ray Bill, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Superman [the latter only sometimes] and a [[TheRealHeroes random paramedic]] who handed it to Thor before vanishing into the crowd. [[WordOfGod Dan Slott]] has claimed that, in the future, Eddie Brock will wind up bearing the mantle as a ''What-If?''-type story).

* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] from Fawcett[=/=]Creator/DCComics. One of the common comparisons that happens since the Fawcett characters were added to the DCU is that even {{Superman}} fantasizes about just killing Lex Luthor and taking over the Earth for its own good from time to time. Captain Marvel is beyond that. It helps that he's still a kid.
** This [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]], however, and sometimes Superman and WonderWoman are shown possessing these traits as well. However if anyone is shown to be more pure than the UrExample of TheCape, it's Captain Marvel.

** The ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Clash" revolves around Captain Marvel as a new member of the League. He's portrayed as so innocent (and naive) that he makes Superman look rather paranoid and reactionary. He ends up leaving after (rather justly given the events of the episode) upbraiding the founding League members for not living up to their own standards.

** Batman is sometimes depicted as being more incorruptible than Superman, such as in ''The Dark Knight Returns''. The difference between them seems to be that Superman doesn't want to cross the line, where Batman ''does'' but simply can't bring himself to do it. Thus, Superman is good out of a desire to be good, while Batman is good because he is unable to be anything else, which makes him the incorruptible one.

** Kara Zor-El, aka the future {{Supergirl}}, is also this trope. When [[spoiler: Darkseid]] attempts to mind-control her early in Season 10, she--like ComicBook/LoisLane in the same episode--has a heart pure enough to resist it.
