However, by the end of the first episode, he's revealed to have many character flaws that make him much less an example than he first seemed.

* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', Puck's (Jewish) mother asks him why he can't find himself "a nice Jewish girl," part of the reason he goes out with Rachel. Rachel doesn't exactly fit the "reliable and gentle" mold, though.
** Puck is Jewish himself, although he doesn't fit the mold either. There is also Jacob Ben Israel, whose SchoolNewspaperNewsHound persona is anything but nice, and AmbiguouslyJewish Tina, who may be the only one in the show who might actually fit the mold.

to:

* Schmendrick from ''Literature/TheLastUnicorn''. More AmbiguouslyJewish than anything, but it fits overall well (that and Peter S. Beagle is Jewish himself, so he may have added a little bit of himself onto his character).

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Kyle Broflovski is probably the best modern version of the stereotype. Even though he can be a bit HotBlooded occasionally, mostly due to [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] behavior, he can still be pretty nice, especially in later seasons. Unless, of course, something causes his [[{{Joisey}} Inner Jersey]] to manifest. Like [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Sno]][[JerseyShore oki]].
