** {{Jesus}} makes this trope OlderThanFeudalism. One of the possible titles for JesusWasWayCool was Jesus Was A Nice Jewish Boy, and it's mentioned several times throughout the article. This is sometimes taken to extremes: there's a hymn titled "Gentle Jesus Meek And Mild"... [[SubvertedTrope which is an ironic hymn]]. Jesus had differing ideas about the definition of "meekness" then the modern connotation and, even in the Bible, has his moments of KungFuJesus. He was not a [[ChroniclesOfNarnia tame carpenter]].

Jewish boys are generally {{Nice Guy}}s, or at least can be relied on being so when they're the centre piece or critical element of a given work of fiction. So are AmbiguouslyJewish ones. They also tend to be [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating]], studious, and brainy. Although he may still [[JewsLoveToArgue love to argue]], even when he's arguing, you can still tell he's nice. It's reasonably likely he's a [[AllJewsAreCheapskates cheapskate]], but he's probably not actually [[GreedyJew greedy]]. They're usually {{Adorkable}}, because this is a quality favored in Jewish culture as an ideal husband: smart, reliable, and gentle, with a boyish charm.

* Ted Kord, the ComicBook/BlueBeetle, who employs a distinctly Yiddish turn of phrase for the whole time he's being written by Len Wein and displays elements of this trope.

* Peter Parker aka Spider-Man was sometimes thought to be this due to his very pronounced feelings of guilt and domination by his surrogate mother Aunt May, especially as his creator Creator/StanLee is Jewish. However, particular details about his family added since the late 1980s have established his background as at least partly Irish and Catholic.
