** With the partial subversion that his ''real'' addiction is to the mental stimulation of solving mysteries, and the cocaine is just the poor substitute he settles for when no mystery is available. (Or at least, that's how he rationalizes it. (The newer the portrayal, the less likely this rationale is to be taken at face value.))

* The President of Hocotate Freight from ''{{Pikmin}} 2'' is quite greedy and his treatment of his employees is questionable. But when one of his employees gets left behind on an alien world, he's more than willing to help find and rescue him.

** Vastra [[SerialKillerKiller murders and]] ''[[SerialKillerKiller eats]]'' [[SerialKillerKiller other murderers]] and overtly sexist and racist (referring to men as 'monkeys' and humans in general as 'apes') but because she is played with such charm and poise and her relationship with her human wife is so adorable she's never treated as anything other than a heroic individual. It helps that she is non-human, making her gruesome eating habits technically not cannibalistic and that they are kept safely offscreen.

* [[ChivalrousPervert Cross Marian]] of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' may fit. He has a habit of gambling to make money, and/or spending money he may not have. He's greatly in debt. He makes very extravagant bets, but if he loses, he doesn't pay, and will run off-leaving someone else to do so, usually his 15-year-old apprentice will have to do so. At one point, he has even shown leaving bills for his enemies to pay, which reached up into millions of dollars-money for housing, alcohol, and women. He's a complete achololic, but implied hie's DrowningHisSorrows. He also will always have cigarettes handy. He's known as a womanizer by other characters in the series, and one of his hobbies is visiting red-light districts, but his actions show him as the ChivalrousPervert, rather than TheCasanova. We have yet to seem him mistreat or abuse a woman. One of his lovers, [[MissKitty Anita]] hates mean people, but she was crazy about Cross, and so was her mother. Cross had relations with both women, who only supported the Dark order due to association with Cross. He's also said to have many keepsakes from his lovers under his bed at Mother's house-an old friend of his. So, while Cross appears to be a big hedonist-with his gambling, smoking, drinking, and philandering, he is not without his goodness. His character profile by the author even states he hates "dirty bastards."

* Alexandra Harris, the protagonist of the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/OriginStory'' sometimes seems to have a flexible set of morals. While she's heroic in that she saves people and fights crime, she's also not above committing the occasional crime herself if she thinks the crime needs committing (including the murder of a government official who was endangering her loves ones, and the theft of over a ten billion dollars from a corrupt corporation). If you asked her, she'd probably describe herself as "pragmatic" rather than "criminal," though, aand she does seem to regret what she sees as the necessity of the crimes in question.

* The Dude from ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', the vice being Sloth. His laziness is his defining characteristic, but when dragged by events into dealing with a mystery, he reluctantly tries to do the right thing-- although would be even happier if he could uninvolve himself.

All Doctors tend to be unbelivably vain, though the precise mechanism of this changes with the Doctor. Some take pleasure in fussy, expensive outfits; others take pleasure in fussy, expensive outfits that they then wear in a deliberately scruffy way so they don't look too fussy and expensive; others take pleasure in dressing in outrageous clothes in the misguided belief that they are so gorgeous they can pull off anything; some love [[AttentionWhore being the centre of attention]]; others feel ''entitled'' to being the centre of attention and whine if they aren't; some make a habit of lying about their age to flatter themselves.

* ''Series/DadsArmy'': Captain Mainwaring may be amazingly egostistical and very jealous in some ways of Sergeant Wilson but he's also an amazingly brave man who would do anything for the Walmington on Sea platoon and his country. Wilson occasionally shows similar vices, as well as an angry streak if someone pushes him too far or does something to Mrs. Pike.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ducktales2017'' has even more of a cast of these. Scrooge has his miserly traits and his 'kind' traits evened outa little. Donald has his Wrath...the nephews EACH have a trait. Launchpad is kinda a dunce, Webby goes overboard trying to fit in. Even Gearloose has a vice of well deserved arrogance.

* TheFlash from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' despite being a hero isn't ashamed to turn his own image into a merchandise brand and is definitely lecherous (constantly hitting on every woman he finds). This is in ''marked'' contrast to the usual depiction of the character in the comics, where he's generally made of IncorruptiblePurePureness.
