* Big Daddy La Bouff from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. A sugar baron, and one of the richest men in New Orleans, he's nothing short of a gentleman, and treats anybody who works for him [[NiceToTheWaiter with the utmost respect.]]

* Big Daddy "Big Daddy" La Bouff from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. A ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' is something of a {{Reconstruction}} of one. While he may be a sugar baron, baron and one of the richest men in New Orleans, he's nothing short of a gentleman, and treats anybody who works for him [[NiceToTheWaiter with the utmost respect.]]]] He is nothing but courteous and kind to Tiana the whole time.

* Hatfield from ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}'' is a down-on-his-luck example. After the end of the Confederacy he went west and makes a living as a gambler, but recognising Mrs. Malory as the daughter of his late commanding officer, he immediately starts to fuss over her. In a slight deconstruction of the trope, he is very class-conscious and thus his courtesy to women emphatically does not extend to Dallas (implied to be a prostitute). He also has a marked difference of opinion with Doc Boone, a veteran of the Union Army, as to how the, um, late unpleasantness should be referred to.

* Guin Rhineford from ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', a [[FeudalFuture literal]] Southern Aristocrat with a penchant for fine white suits and luxury airships. The trope is somewhat played with in that he's a) AmbiguouslyBrown and b) [[spoiler:one of only five canonically gay characters in all of ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' (the others being Tieria Erde, Alejandro Conner and Ribbons Almark of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'''s Angelo Sauper)]], two things which almost certainly wouldn't fly in the Old South, as opposed to the post-apocalyptic future South.

* Atticus Finch of ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' fame is a SimpleCountryLawyer and a shining example of this trope. Unfortunately, ''Literature/GoSetAWatchman'' reveals that he does have the racist views common to this trope.

trope -- though that book appears to take place in an AlternateContinuity, being an early draft of ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' that Harper Lee considerably changed before it became the finished product.

* During the American Civil War, one general inovked this trope to protect his written orders from spies: he sealed them in a fancy envelope, daubed them with perfume, and had them signed by a female hand. His orders were reportedly never intercepted, because he'd guessed correctly that no southern gentleman would ''dare'' be so uncouth as to read, never mind ''open'', a lady's love-letter.
