* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Asgore is this. He is discribed as a "big fuzzy pushover" who hates violence, [[spoiler: and if it weren't for [[WellIntentionedExtremist the promise he made to his subjects when in a fit of rage,]] he wouldn't have to fight you. When in battle, he can't even bring himself to look at you, instead looking at the ground. He feels a lot of regret for his actions, to the point that he destroys the Mercy button at the beggining of the fight not to stop you from running away, but because he thinks he doesn't deserve your mercy.]]
--> Asgore: Truthfully... I do not want power. I do not want to hurt anyone. I just wanted everyone to have hope...

* DCComics' {{western}} character Bat Lash. He's a fairly cheerful ReluctantWarrior, though, who doesn't anguish much about beating up villains, instead maintaining a steady stream of [[YouFightLikeACow banter]] about how he did ''try'' to avoid a confrontation, and, really, all he wants is to be about his business, but they've forced the issue. And he means it.

* Goku from ''Manga/DragonBall'' is this (especially the horrible judge of character part) seeing as how he loves to fight but never sets out to kill, even when he is forced to. He actually has the lowest body count in the series, on ''important'' characters at least, lest we forget the time he went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and destroyed the entire Red Ribbon Army when he was a kid (though they DID piss him off really badly by killing Upa's dad, among other deeds). And of course, he kills plenty of people in the movies, though those aren't canon.

* In one of the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' prequel [[AllThereInTheManual audio dramas]], when ten-year-old Suzaku asks Tohdoh, his martial arts teacher at the time, why he should befriend the hostage Prince Lelouch instead of just letting him get beat up, Tohdoh gives him this philosophy as a reply.
** This also comes up in his, Suzaku's and Lelouch's behavior in the series - Tohdoh supporting Zero's order to withdraw in Stage 17, Lelouch's way of dealing with the remade [[spoiler: SAZ under Viceroy Nunnally]] in Turn 8, and Suzaku's philosophy in general, though it can be said that he takes it too far. [[spoiler: Then again, it's also his goal to ''get himself killed''...]]

* Nanashi in ''Anime/{{Sword of the Stranger}}'' keeps his sword sheathed with a peace knot preventing him from drawing it because [[spoiler: he complied to his superior's order to execute a mother and her child during a raid and had nightmares about it ever since.]] This doesn't stop him from defending himself [[spoiler: or Kotaro]] through other means, including [[spoiler: flinging a boiling pot of water over an enemy soldier's head and crushing another's throat with the butt of his sheath.]]

** ''Rebuild 2.0'' makes it somewhat better: he comes back because Zeruel made the [[BerserkButton big mistake]] of eating [[BigBrotherInstinct Rei]]. NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ensues.
