* In ''Series/TheLibrarians2014'', Jacob Stone is your typical cowboy from Oklahoma, who enjoys going to a bar with his friends and starting a brawl. He also has a genius-level IQ and a [=PhD=] in art history, having written dozens of academic papers on the subject (all under assumed names). No wonder the Library picked him as a potential Librarian. By the end of Season 3, he's also a master martial artist, having learned from the [[Characters/JourneyToTheWest Monkey King]] himself.

** Worf himself flips the HotBlooded Klingon stereotype by instead being TheStoic.

to:

** Worf himself flips the HotBlooded Klingon stereotype by instead being TheStoic. This is explained by him learning about Klingon culture through books rathern than first-hand knowledge. He's very much surprised to learn that most Klingons are hardly the paragons of honor he perceived them to be.

* On ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', DL Hawkins was initially described as the classic ScaryBlackMan. When he actually showed up, he turned out to be one of the nicest and most sane guys on the show, completely dedicated to his wife and son.

* Lady Sinderby in ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' is also an aversion to the JewishMother stereotype. When her son Atticus wishes to marry a gentile girl, she is the supportive one, while his father is the one who is raving about Atticus throwing away their culture for a girl. When the girl's mother pulls a last-second effort to break off the marriage by announcing her impending divorce, it is Lady Sinderby who once again reacts to it calmly and urges her son to proceed with the wedding, then coldly threatening her husband with a divorce if he utters even one word in protest.

** Prince Igor Kuragin also doesn't fit the typical stereotype of a Russian nobleman, seeming like a kind, gentle old man. His wife Irina, on the other hand, is cold and aristocratic.

* ''Manga/GabrielDropout'' runs on the angels and demons having their stereotypes flipped. Gabriel became a lazy, snarky shut-in, while Raphael takes pleasure in picking on the oblivious Satanichia. Tsukinose is probably one of the friendliest, kindest characters in the entire series. The only character who fits her stereotype is Satanichia, but her acts of villainy are too [[HarmlessVillain laughably ineffective]] to actually cause suffering.

** Kashima is the Prince of the school and loves flirting with girls. She would be right at home in a OneGenderSchool Shoujo manga, but if she were a guy, she would fit the textbook Shoujo "School Prince" easily. She also flips a common tomboy sterotype in Shonen romance; rather than shun her masculine qualities for not being "girly" enough, she revels in them.
** Hori is Kashima's senpai who frequently beats her up for skipping Drama Club and excessively flirting. If he were a girl, he would probably be the Shoujo genre's "the Prince's beleaguered friend" who is always trying to make sure the prince actually does more than be a playboy.

** Wakamatsu is a tall, muscular athlete, but is an innocent, friendly NiceGuy. He's also a bit of a {{Tsundere}} towards Seo. And like Seo, Nozaki modeled a female character after him, who plays as a love interest for Seo's character in the manga. The two's characters in Nozaki's manga are not uncommon to find in romance manga.
