The [=McCoy=] is another part of the FreudianTrio, along with TheKirk and TheSpock. Where the former is rational and [[TakeAThirdOption intuitive]], and the latter is [[TheStoic cold]] and logical, the [=McCoy=] is [[HotBlooded emotional]] and [[TheHeart humanistic]]. He cares about others deeply; for him doing the right thing is not a question of convenience or moral relativity, but about the concrete reality ''right now''. Which is to say, someone like TheKirk cares about saving people; the [=McCoy=] cares about making things ''right''. This often leads the heroes into hot water as this concern for others blinds him to complications in the MoralDilemma of the week and leads him to advocate (or take it upon himself to do) "the right thing", regardless of how disastrous it would be in the short or long run.

* Fittingly, several doctors fill this role in Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG. Dr. Alan Pierce is arguably the most notable, with Wade, Carver, and Shaw behind him. Crusher, Copper, and Hale are more practical, and Medic is... well... [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Medic]].

* Fittingly, several doctors fill In ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'', Rex fills this role role, in Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG. Dr. Alan Pierce is arguably contrast to the most notable, with Wade, Carver, and Shaw behind him. Crusher, Copper, and Hale are [[TheSpock more practical, logical]] Frozeen and Medic is... well... [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Medic]].the [[TheKirk more practical]] Greybeard. He is guided largely by emotion for better or worse, and is prone to making passionate yet irrational decisions based upon what he believes is right in the moment. This includes his preferences for saving Mutant Dinos (in a war intended to exterminate them) and the way he'll respond if someone threatens a friend (such as attacking Pharisee and Bogart when they tried to place Amanda under custody, even though they were doing it for her own safety).

Added DiffLines:

* Vandham of ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' is this to Nagi's [[TheKirk Kirk]] and Chausson's [[TheSpock Spock]]. He takes it ''hard'' when he accidentally [[spoiler:leads Team Elma into a trap that almost gets them killed]].
** The Wrothians and Prone fill this role for the various races, contrasting with the Ma-non's and Orphe's [[TheSpock Spock]] and Humanity's [[TheKirk Kirk]].

* Sergeant John Lugo from ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' is the most emotional and snarky of the Delta Force Trio. He's also the first to get upset at Walker.
