* Maria Theresa often seems to come off as a [=McCoy=]. Like [[WinstonChurchill Churchill]], she had her [[LadyOfWar ruthless side]] though. It comes with [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask the job]].

* Ironically, Jack [=McCoy=] of ''Series/LawAndOrder'' is not the [=McCoy=] for the show. That role is typically filled by the female A.D.A., except when Angie Harmon played that role as a conservative Republican, so they made the new D.A. a female college professor, and made ''her'' the [=McCoy=]. Of course, some can take it too far: Serena Southerlyn was too much the [=McCoy=], which resulted in her being fired. This also led to an example of SuddenlySexuality.

* Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick
** Durkon and Elan sometimes fall into this, in contrast with Versuvius's TheSpock. Elan gets in trouble because of his good heart and poor sense, but gets out of it through his charisma and dumb luck. Durkon is more restrained, and forms an inversion of the usual temperaments with TheSpock, as he is an emotional rock compared to Versuvius's fierce intellectualism.

* Sora from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' . He openly believes any and all life and world has value. While ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts2'' had him not believe that for the Nobodies (heavily implied to be the anger from the others in his heart effecting his emotions) by KH3D he's gotten over it and insists all Nobodies have value. And he repeatedly tries to reform the villains too.

The [=McCoy=] is the HonorBeforeReason {{trope}} personified, and may occasionally be a StrawmanEmotional. Will sometimes use ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder.

* Rembarndt from ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' is clearly The [=McCoy=], as is the moral voice in many episodes, much more emotional and care a lot for others in a humanistic way. He's also much less interested in scientific approaches than his fellow sliders like Quinn, Arturo and to a lesser extend Wade.
