* For some, Jeannette Miller from ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''. Not only is she never once seen to get angry about anything and is the most calm of the girls, but in the episode when the six kids had to work out which of them was at fault for a broken statue in their school, she wasn't even a suspect.

** [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Ventus]] is a very good male example, though the only reason that he is so pure and innocent is because [[spoiler: [[BadassGrandpa Master]] [[EvilOldFolks Xehanort]] forcibly extracted all the darkness from his heart.]] Still played straight though, as [[spoiler:the Ven in the flashback is shown to be largely [[TheCutie the same as his present self]].]]

She is kind, sweet-natured, polite and optimistic, and on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, she falls very much on the idealistic side. Her innocence will often inspire protective feelings in heroic characters, and she is frequently one of the more beautiful characters because of the convention that BeautyEqualsGoodness. Unfortunately, she is also [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter woefully naive]], making her a prime target for a villain seeking to take advantage of her, often in an IHaveYouNowMyPretty fashion. As a result, the ingenue is one of the most common [[DamselInDistress Damsels in Distress]]. She is also [[EntendreFailure immune to sexual innuendo]]. In a worst-case scenario, the character will be given [[FlatCharacter no personality]] beyond her [[PuritySue purity and innocence.]]

* Chihiro Shindou from ''VisualNovel/EfAFairyTaleOfTheTwo'' tried to isolate herself due to her amnesia, until she met Renji. Though she is actually one year older than him, her mental age will always be 13 years old, which is the time when the amnesia-inducing accident hit her.

* ''KimiNiTodoke'': Sawako Kuronuma of fits this as a modern-day reinterpretation. Academically, she's very bright, but has almost no social skills. She falls for a guy who became incredibly popular at school due to his penchant for being nice to people. While she does get into "distress" from time to time, it's usually high school issues that pose the threat, and her friends encourage her to solve the problems herself.
