** James Potter had elements of this and of JerkJock (however, beyond his complex and mutual hatred with Severus Snape, his only jerk qualities were being a show-off and hot-headed.) After he 'deflates his head,' he is much more readily seen as one. Subverted in that we only hear about him from his friends and archenermy Snape.

* Sakura Kinomoto from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' is both a cheerleader and the sweetest girl around. By extension, so are her cheerleader friends Chiharu and Naoko.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' Flash Thompson starts out as a JerkJock but [[CharacterDevelopment evolves into this]]. Some of the other jocks, like Rand Robertson, are nicer to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the hockey bros in ''Webcomic/CheckPlease,'' overlapping with AcademicAthlete in Shitty and Ransom's cases, although the two main characters don't play it quite straight. Bitty, the protagonist, is much more InTouchWithHisFeminineSide that the stereotypical male student athlete, and Jack is an emotionally inept perfectionist with anxiety issues, but they're both very sympathetic characters.

The JerkJock answer to the LovableAlphaBitch. It is typical in most high school settings to have the jock as the bad guy but this trope is a method of portraying jocks in a positive light. After all, people don't automatically turn into a sociopath the moment they join a sports team.

The Lovable Jock differs from the LovableAlphaBitch in that while the AlphaBitch can still be a bully to everyone except the main character to count, the Lovable Jock will be a nice guy by default. He is rarely the main man of the high school and will usually be in contrast to an actual JerkJock. Expect the JerkJock to be blond while the Lovable Jock is brunet or redheaded though blond Lovable Jocks are common too.

too. But that still isn't a license to try anything funny on him; he ''will'' mop the floor with anyone who dares.



Female cheerleaders who are not the AlphaBitch can go here instead of LovableAlphaBitch since that trope is reserved for the actual {{Alpha Bitch}}es. The Jock need not only be on the football team, but on any other sports team in the school.

* ''Film/TheDuff'':
** Wes. Despite being introduced as a stereotypical football jock in his first scenes, he is actually one of the few people who try to help Bianca in the movie.
** Casey may count as a female example, being a soccer player. She may be tough, but she's not mean.
