** Harry himself is the hero of the entire series. However, his most glaring vice is Wrath, or at least lack of control over his anger and other emotional outbursts. He's also ''way'' too foolishly stubborn for anyone's good, including his own, and has been accused of occasional arrogance.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ducktales2017'' has even more of a cast of these. Scrooge has his miserly traits and his 'kind' traits evened out a little. Donald is a loving father figure to his triplet nephews, but he still has his Wrath. The nephews EACH have their own flaws; Huey can be a bit of a pushover when it comes to his brothers' antics, is a firm AgentScully, and [[RageBreakingPoint has a vicious temper when pushed to the breaking point]]. Dewey is [[LeroyJenkins impulsive]] to the point where he often endangers himself and others and is a major attention seeker. Louie is a greedy LazyBum who inherited his great-uncle's obsession with money, and isn't above lying to others to get what he wants. Launchpad is kinda a dunce, Webby goes overboard trying to fit in and doesn't have the best social skills, and Beakley can be really overprotective of her granddaughter and can be overly strict. Even Gearloose has a vice of well deserved arrogance.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tyrion Lannister is a notorious whoremonger and party animal. He settles down considerably after hooking up with Shae. Tyrion's penchant for whores later comes to be used to paint Tyrion in a negative light during Tyrion's trial for Joffrey's murder.
--> '''Tyrion:''' Drinking and lust; no man can match me in these things. I am the god of tits and wine.

** In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Scrooge [=McDuck=] is, well, TheScrooge to sometimes absurd levels, but always honors his deals, does not resort to criminal means, and genuinely cares about his nephews.

** Finally, Baloo from ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' was a kind and heroic figure in the most CrapsackWorld of the three, but cripplingly lazy, constantly causing himself and others problems by being short-sighted and looking for quick ways out. Rebecca is arguably even closer to the trope than Baloo. Her more educated, ambitious, and hard-working nature brought new life to his all-but-dead cargo business, but also caused new problems due to being overzealous and stubborn once she's chosen a particular plan of action. Contrast to Shere Kahn, who is ruthless to the point of near-criminality in his business dealings, with the only redeeming quality being he has enough personal power to crush you ''above board''.

** The 1971 version of one of the "Bratty Kids", Augustus Gloop, is actually presented as a very quiet, polite, well dressed and groomed kid. Apart from his (implied) massive gluttony, he doen't seem to be a bad kid at all. The Book and latter adaptations, make him a hoorid bullying slob, however.

* Rayne from ''LeastICouldDo.'' One wouldn't think an arrogant womanizer MarySue could be such a likable character, but some people think he pulls it off through a combination of sheer charisma and being a big softie on the inside.

* Creator/AnthonyBourdain describes himself as this, especially early in his career as detailed in ''Literature/KitchenConfidential'': Serially addicted to cocaine, heroin, and other drugs - and still a heavy drinker in his 60s - Bourdain spent his 20s and early 30s on a steady downward trajectory before stabilizing himself in the early 1990s and starting to pull back from the brink. Unfortunately, a number of [[MisaimedFandom would-be chefs saw his memoir and only saw the rock-star glamour and easy access to sex and drugs Bourdain described, and decided they wanted on]]. Bourdain [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing sees those chefs and would-be chefs as poseurs]].

Mr Vice Guy avoids being an UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist or VillainProtagonist in that while they have obvious [[SevenDeadlySins greed, lust, pride, wrath, etc.]] it never completely outweighs their good qualities or sense of right. In some instances it weighs equally, and they feel justified making minor exploitations of their co-stars.

Beware! If he ever has to [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere get over his addiction]] or make a FaceHeelTurn, then it's "[[IncrediblyLamePun No more Mr. Vice Guy]]..!"

A MrViceGuy with more prominent vices will overlap somewhat with AntiHero in that, while they have obvious flaws, they are still ultimately good.
