** Similarly, is Riverdale's resident CanonSue Chuck Clayton. Said character has zero flaws whatsoever, is Riverdale's top athlete who plays on every team, a terrifically talented artist, an A student, has a hot steady girlfriend who he rarely (if ever) has any quarrels with, has his father on staff at school meaning he's guaranteed access to a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, and is basically beloved by the entire town. Really the closest thing to a "flaw" he has is he's not much of a ladies man... and that's only because for the longest time [[ValuesDissonance they didn't dare put him with anyone other than the one Black girl in school]].

* In ''Film/{{Flatliners}}'', medical students putting themselves through {{Near Death Experience}}s to try and glimpse the afterlife are tormented by the vengeful spirits of the people they have wronged in their lives; they can only stop them by CrossingTheBurntBridge. All the men in the group have to deal with some pretty serious sins, while the only woman in the group's only sin is [[spoiler:having a veteran drug addict father who committed suicide out of shame when she as a little girl walked in on him hitting up, through no fault of her own]]. In the original script, her character actually had an affair with her college professor; when she was caught out, she villainised him and claimed he was sexually abusing her.

* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', some of the more well rounded characters are minorities, like Kurt (gay) and Mercedes (black), as well as Santana ([[TwoferTokenMinority a latina lesbian]]) often being the voice of reason in later seasons.
** Tina and Mike being Asian always get good grades. Still, Tina did find her calling as an AlphaBitch when she decided she was the new Rachel.

* Delta, the only black cast member of ''ComicStrip/{{Luann}}'', is the smartest and most level-headed of the entire group. Unless you count "being a workaholic" as an actual flaw, she's about as absurdly perfect as they get.

* Delta, the only main black cast member of ''ComicStrip/{{Luann}}'', is the smartest and most level-headed of the entire group. Unless you count "being a workaholic" as an actual flaw, she's about as absurdly perfect as they get. (She was written out of the strip after the main characters graduated from high school. In an [[http://thecelebritycafe.com/2016/11/interview-greg-evans-creator-of-comic-strip-luann/ interview]], cartoonist Greg Evans explained why, saying, "Delta was always a hard character to write because she’s too good (giving a minority character negative traits is always problematic).")

* Nils Nielsen is the only genuinely black Gunpla Fighter in ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'', and one of the precious few black people in the entire Franchise/{{Gundam}} world in general. He's a 13-year old ChildProdigy with several [=PhD=]s, as well as the son of a [[GreatDetective famous detective]] and a prominent female martial arts champion. On the other hand, he does mix up his Chinese and Japanese cultures when building his "Sengoku" Astray, something {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the show's Japanese cast members.

* Tends to happen when an [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime of a game]] that allows the player to pick between a male and female protagonist does a WhatIf episode showing what would happen if the female protagonist [[SchrodingersPlayerCharacter got to the plot first]]. ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' had one where Fumika was shown to be better at collecting medals than Keita would have and was much more helpful and respectful to Whisper, and the last episode of ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' had Djeeta steamroll the same plots Gran went through and accomplish near all the classes, with just enough time to have a BeachEpisode with her crew and team up with fan-favorite characters.

** It should be noted that the comics version of Montoya underwent a large amount of character development in her time, developing a number of realistically unflattering character traits, including an extremely vengeful attitude and eventually alcoholism and a bad smoking habit.

* [[https://iwastesomuchtime.com/63313 This comic]] shows that the only one sane enough to go for a managerial position is a female employee, since she dressed as her boss. The other employees, likely male, dressed up as [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader,]] [[ComicBook/XMen Wolverine,]] [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf,]] [[SafeSaneAndConsensual a gimp,]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ,]] and a {{Cowboy}}. There's even a guy who wants to be a woman.
** The last one maybe trying indicate that [[ComingOutStory he's brave enough to come out as transgender.]]
