** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', we are introced to Jiren, the strongest fighter of Universe 11. Jiren's personality (in the Manga at least) is closer to that of a classic superhero. He's more concerned with saving civilians than learning about Goku, and initially refused to the enter the tournament of power because it would mean the death of 7 other universes.

Added DiffLines:

* Atem from ''Manga/YuGiOh'' zigzags this trope. While far more of an anti-hero than other examples, he nevertheless has a strict honour code and is initially very black and white in his views about justice and punishment. He plays the rest of the trope straight as he is incredibly selfless and [[ThinkNothingOfIt downplays his own heroism]] to the extent of [[RetGone writing himself out of history]] to save his people. He plays the example straight the most in his life as Pharaoh Atem (revisited in the last season of the manga) when he literally wears a cape and has to be the upholder of Ma'at i.e. law and justice.

Added DiffLines:

* Luke Skywalker is almost always shown as this, especially in works such as ''Literature/LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor.'' He's a perfect example of BewareTheNiceOnes-yes, he is a LivingLegend and BigGood, but he's also kind, gentle, compassionate, and willing to give a second chance to everyone, unless they're absolutely steeped in the Dark Side-and even then, he'll still defeat them as quickly and painlessly as possible. It's telling that even when there's anti-Jedi sentiment, it's almost never directed at him personally. Even after going through enough to make anyone into a {{Woobie}}, he always remains a good guy.

** To some extent it depends on the writer exactly how different The Big Red Cheese and Billy Batson actually are (they talk about each other in the third person, but there's substantial overlap). Given that Billy, even if he's not ''literally'' a Boy Scout, certainly tries to be Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent, it makes a certain amount of sense that his super-powered alter ego is usually shown to be pretty much pegged at one edge of the sliding scale from idealism to cynicism.

For that matter, one assumes this is exactly why the wizard Shazam picked Billy for the job.

* Many ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' heroes and their human hosts fall under this category, especially during the Showa era. Heisei era Ultras and humans tended to be more fallible, but still remain equally admirable characters.

The superhero as an ideally good person. Generally associated with [[GoodOldWays older protagonists]] and often invokes elements of the MessianicArchetype. Has now become nigh-synonymous with the "classic" SuperHero.

SuperHero. This trope is used to evoke admiration amongst other good guys in certain ways.

** Oddly, in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Goku's heroic traits were exaggerated in the anime, especially in the {{Non Serial Movie}}s, though he was a more ambiguous hero in the manga who fought to get stronger for the sake of winning fights because [[BloodKnight that was his favorite pass time]]. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', which had direct input from Goku's creator Creator/AkiraToriyama, shows a Goku that can be jarringly different from the one people are used to from the ''Z'' dub.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter is arguably also a better cape than the codifier, as (in his 90s ongoing) he is the most well-loved superhero in the entire southern hemisphere of Earth, and he is (DependingOnTheWriter, of course), more powerful than Supes.
