* ''Webcomice/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob:'' While Generictown's location is [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield left deliberately ambiguous,]] it has a Midwestern vibe to it, and Bob definitely fits this personality type, particularly in the aspect of not wanting to make a big deal of anything.

* {{Comicbook/Static}}: When Static (who is from the fictional city of [[MilestoneComics Dakota)]] joined the Franchise/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).

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', at a summit of ponies representing cities across Equestria, the representative from the city of [[PunnyName Whinnyapolis]] is shown to be friendly, polite, and when angered, massively passive-aggressive. Her scenes show her alongside the blunt, gruff representative from [[BigAppleSauce Manehattan]], for maximum contrast.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' with the one-off villain Midwestern Mom, who attacks the heroes' tree-house base. She [[LargeHam loudly proclaims]] how angry "brats" like Sector V make her, before getting [[OneHitKO taken out with one shot]] by said "brats".

* 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.
