* 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.

* Sheldon, from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', insists that since he's [[TheSpock Spock]] and Leonard is [[TheKirk Kirk]] then Leonard's girlfriend Stephanie must be [=McCoy=].

** Garibaldi fits very well the role of The [=McCoy=] as he's very emotional, bases his actions on his instinct and intuition and rarely sees the bigger picture. Both Ivanova and Franklin have similar Spockesque roles and interact with Garibaldi often enough.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' gives this kind of dynamic, albeit with shades of gray, with the Trinity: Batman is clearly TheSpock and Superman TheKirk, on the other hand the most emotional and hot blooded of them will be, of course, the brave Amazonian warrior Wonder Woman as TheMcCoy.

* Snotlout acts as this to Fishleg's TheKirk in ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'', trying to get him to abandon his pacifistic, intellectual in favor of his more aggressive, impulsive, warrior side. He usually does this by antagonizing him like in "Worst in Show", where he uses his obnoxious boasting to get under Fishleg's skin and provoking his competitive side or helping him like in "Quake, Rattle and Roll!" where he tries teaching him how to fight dirty when Fishlegs tries to help the Gronkles in Dark Deep face the Catastrophic Quaken.
