** Example: Miss Connie Brooks in ''Radio/OurMissBrooks''.



* Medical Professionals - for [[CloserToEarth some odd reason]], nurses are more goodly than doctors, in general. Possibly because doctors get paid so much, whereas nurses are equally famous for being paid so little (although in some places nurses are well-paid, highly in-demand professionals). On the other hand, male doctors are considered ideal boyfriend material by every straight female character ever. The automatic niceness of these figures is obviously averted by EVERY MEDICAL DRAMA EVER, because, of course, a show about nothing but nice people would be boring to watch. ''Series/{{House}}'' gets bonus points.

These days, this trope is one of the most subverted/averted ones. Priest? [[VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII Corrupt power-grubber]] (and that's being KIND). Teacher? [[TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack Questionable methods, up to and including pretending to be a legendary octopus-monster.]] Medical Professionals? Well... as the joke goes, "What is the difference between God and a surgeon?" [[spoiler: God doesn't believe Himself to be a surgeon.]] For more examples, see SinisterMinister, SadistTeacher and DrJerk.
