* Poked a little fun at by the [[UsefulNotes/RollerDerby Minnesota RollerGirls]] B-team (the Minnesota Nice) and traveling mascot (Minnie Sorta-Nice). MNRG's travel-team fan club, the AQUAMAN ARMY?, has a reputation of being the friendliest (but loudest!) fans in roller derby, and have been featured in advertisements for the Women's Flat Track Derby Association.

* Marshall from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is a GentleGiant from Minnesota, although his hometown isn't portrayed as any more polite than anywhere else. On the other hand, the fairly tough and aggressive Robin comes from the ridiculously polite land of [[CanadaEh Canada]].

* Marshall from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is a GentleGiant from Minnesota, although his hometown isn't portrayed as any more polite than anywhere else. This is the focus of one episode in particular showing how much his personality clashes with the signifigantly more cynical and street-smart New York, to the point that Marshall accidently helps two guys ''rob an apartment'' because he thought they were just moving. On the other hand, the fairly tough and aggressive Robin comes from the ridiculously polite land of [[CanadaEh Canada]].



** In a aversion of the trope, Marshall and his brothers as teenagers are shown to regularly fight with such ferocity that they make ''Film/FightClub'' look tame.

* The Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation itself was based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and focused on a no-nonsense mat-based style of wrestling, in comparison to the rather cartoonish style of wrestling out of New York City, the violent brawling style of wrestling out of Atlanta, or the odd mix of brawling and comedy out of Memphis.

* When [[{{Comicbook/Static}} Static]] (who is from the fictional city of [[MilestoneComics Dakota)]] joined the TeenTitans, one of his teammates observed that he had an archetypically nice, upstanding, Midwestern personality (which is also a nice aversion of stereotypes, since Static is black, and people tend to think of the Midwest as being mostly white).
* Barry Allen, [[TheFlash the Flash,]] is from this part of the country and is often described this way.

* Silver Age Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} grew up in Midvale -a fictional town located between somewhere between Smallville (Kansas) and Metropolis (Illinois)- and she is a nice, kind and compassionate -albeit short-tempered and fierce- woman.

* Averted by the fact that some of the best {{Heel}}s of [[TheEighties the 1980s]] and early [[TheNineties 1990s]], such as [[Wrestling/RickRude "Ravishing" Rick Rude]] and [[Wrestling/CurtHennig Mr. Perfect]], as well as the greatest TagTeam of all time, who were so successful as both heels ''and'' as {{Face}}s that they [[DracoInLeatherPants wrestled the same way regardless]], Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors (Hawk and Animal), all called the Land of 10,000 Lakes home.
** The Road Warriors were always billed as being from Chicago because, in their words, "Minnesota nice doesn't cut it in professional wrestling".
*** Even today in wrestling, heels like CurtisAxel (son of Mr. Perfect) and the essential BigBad BrockLesnar avert the trope.

* ''Literature/AmericanGods'' features a Wisconsin town called Lakeside that is sort of like the best representation of small town life including kind and friendly inhabitants. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a TownWithADarkSecret. Hinzelmann is a small god who kills one young teenager per year, sacrificing them to himself in order to maintain the town's prosperity.]] Gaiman has actually owned a house in Wisconsin since the early 1990s, and he makes frequent trips to Minnesota. The foreword to the novel implies that Lakeside was inspired by a real town (possibly Menomonie, WI, a town near where he lives, which is on the shores of Lake Menomon).
* In ''The Lost Continent'', Creator/BillBryson says that the Midwest is the friendliest region in the USA, especially compared to the West and the South. Mr Bryson is originally from Iowa.
