* Ume from ''Fanfic/SugarBites'' is [[TaughtbyExperience rightly]] incredibly mistrustful and cynical about the shinobi system, the [[CorruptPolitician people who run it]] and the entire bullshit [[HardWorkHardlyWorks power scaling of the world]]. This doesn't stop her from spending a LOT of time and effort accruing resources, allies and making very detailed plans to make things better.

* Canach from ''VideoGame/GuildWars2''. He made some bad choices in the past, but [[TheAtoner he's trying to make up for that]] by helping [[PlayerCharacter the Commander]] fight the elder dragons and save the world. That said, he is still holding onto his salty attitude, making him fit solidly into this trope.

* In ''Literature/AlteredCarbon'', Takeshi Kovacs seems to be an inversion of this; a life-long cynic, Kovacs has slowly but steadily gained an idealistic side, strongly influenced by the philosophy of his homeworld's revered revolutionary leader and Knight in Sour Armour Quellcrist Falconer. However, his particular status has left the cynicism ''deeply'' ingrained, with the result that he seems to strongly resent his idealistic side and reacts with a SnarkKnight schtick that ranges from convincing to desperate.

* Sparhawk of Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheElenium'' is a [[ShellShockedVeteran world-weary]], cynical knight, old before his time who will readily cooperate with and ally with career criminals against far more terrible evils and [[CombatPragmatist readily establish a reputation for savagery in combat]] to convince enemies not to fight. Nonetheless, he has an ironclad sense of personal honor and dignity, and his bark is generally far worse than his bite.
** Which is to say that, while he threatens to do a ''lot'' of horrible things, he only actually does ''some'' of them. In the last book of the Tamuli trilogy, he does nothing to prevent one of his allies from setting a man on fire and imprisoning him forever in a frozen moment, where nothing moves. So not only will that man burn forever in the space between every second, he'll be forever alone as well even if he did find some way to douse himself. Of course, the first thing that man did was try to jump in the nearby lake... which was as solid as the ground at the shore due to time not moving. It's demonstrated elsewhere in the series that that kind of frozen moment means it's impossible to move anything not provided exemption like the man in question.
