* Fiona from ''WesternAnimation/Shrek'', though she was at first dismissive of Shrek for being an ogre and not the handsome prince charming she expected, she later warms up to him after eavesdropping on his conversation with Donkey and hearing him legitimately hurt about how the world treats him just because he is an ogre. They later fall in love.

** While Daenerys seems to gravitate towards lovers with a darker edge to them for the majority of the series, she eventually falls in love with the noble, earnest, and honourable Jon Snow over the course of Season 7.

** This is the reason why Tsunade fell in love with Dan Kato and not Jiraiya. He was a good man who wanted to become Hokage to protect the village and supported her ideals to save as many people by training more medics.

** [[LadyofWar Pearl]] was ''deeply'' in love with [[BigGood Rose Quartz]]. The very Gem who treated Pearl like an individual, instead of "just another pearl". [[DeconstructedTrope This is deconstructed in the series though.]] Besides feeling like she was nothing when in comparison to Rose, Pearl put Rose on a pedestal and couldn't accept that Rose would keep stuff even from her. This is something that was explored in "Rose's Scabbard".
*** This is reconstructed with Rose's relationship with Greg. While both of them clicked well, they had to work to understand and communicate with one other. Greg was aware of Rose's faults and he inspired her to learn more about humanity and truly see them as individuals and equal. Greg was also willing to learn whatever he could about the Gems and puts effort into understanding them (such as when he talked to Garnet about fusion.)

Scabbard". In addition, this gave Pearl a very large codependence complex toward Rose and believed her own worth was only tied to Rose, ironically missing the point of what Rose said. As of Season 5, Pearl is very slowing moving on though her attraction toward a rocker girl who happens to resemble Rose indicates she may not still be pursuing this well.

Greg was also willing to learn whatever he could about the Gems and puts effort into understanding them (such as when he talked to Garnet about fusion.)) As such, it's why Rose's relationship with Greg over her other past suitors (including Pearl) lasted and functioned as well as it did.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has a lesbian example. [[spoiler:Homura]] falls in love with Madoka because she's a kind optimist who genuinely wants her to feel appreciated, which she badly needs after a whole life of illness and isolation. In this instance, dramatic conflict is caused [[spoiler:through Madoka's brutal death, which spurs Homura to travel back in time and do a lot of bad things to avert it]].
** The [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion sequel film]] explores the trope further. [[spoiler:Homura]] still admires Madoka's compassion, but she also dislikes it: as long as they live in an imperfect world, Madoka will feel compelled to sacrifice herself for the good of others. [[spoiler:And in their universe, this is likely to end in her death]]. Ultimately, this trope is... [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]. [[spoiler: [[BrokenBird Homura]] loves Madoka deeply, yes, but thanks to her DarkAndTroubledPast is ultimately [[LivingEmotionalCrutch very dependent on Madoka]] and has gone to some extreme ends to try and protect her while also trying to help her. Madoka's [[AllLovingHero selfless love for people]] always contrasts against [[HumansAreFlawed Homura's once-selfless-but-then-increasingly-selfish]] love for her, which leads to Homura [[FaceHeelTurn ultimately swearing]] by LoveMakesYouEvil: she undermines all of Madoka's hard work because she believes it will make Madoka happy and because deep down, it will make Homura happy. (Which Homura even admits at some point.) So the girl who once wanted to be Madoka's savior [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe out of gratitude]]... [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain ultimately becomes the Devil to her Angel]].]]

* This is heavily implied to be a major factor in Harry and Carol's burgeoning romance in ''FanFic/ChildOfTheStorm.'' Carol, being YoungerThanSheLooks and highly attractive, has a lot of boys chasing her, but Harry, in addition to being TheCape, is a truly NiceGuy (not a DoggedNiceGuy) who does his best to keep his eyes on her face and not the rest of her body.
** Mention is also made of Steve and Peggy (see the "Film" section below), and it's made clear that Pepper and Tony didn't get together until the latter went through quite a bit of CharacterDevelopment.

*** Her love interest in season 3 was Julian Albert Desmond, aka the former Doctor Alchemy. He's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold as despite how stand offish he is, his more noble aspects are what attracts her.
*** Iris West is also similar in that respect, at least in regards to serious love interests. Eddie Thawne was a NiceGuy detective, and her main love interest is Barry Allen. Yet, when definitive bad boy Tony Woodward tried to hit on her, she was immediately repulsed.

*** It is a telling point that Clara idolises Marcus Aurelius, the last of Rome's "Five Good Emperors" (and according to Lady Vashtra, "A superlative base guitar player, the Doctor knows how to throw a band together.") The opening scene in [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "Day of the Doctor"]] has her quoting Aurelius: "Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one." In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath "Deep Breath"]], the first adventure of the 12th Doctor(Peter Capaldi), she admitted to Vashtra that Aurelius was the only pin-up she had in her room as a teen. She insists that, while initially thrown by the Doctor's change in appearance, she is more interested in a good man than a pretty boy.
