* St. Ioannes Chrysostomos became during his tenure as Patriarch of Constantinople famous for almost continuously chewing out the city's population for their extravagance and reminding them to care for the socially disadvantaged in weekly {{Rousing Speech}}es; so much that he was removed and exiled. Repeatedly.

* [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Durkon and Elan]] sometimes fall into this, in contrast with V's TheSpock.
** Mostly Elan, as Durkon usually takes a more passive role. And has more common sense. Durkon is the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame party Scotsman]], though...

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 [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame party Scotsman]], though...usual temperaments with TheSpock, as he is an emotional rock compared to Versuvius's fierce intellectualism.

* ''Film/TheAvengers'': Iron Man fits TheKirk, and Captain America fits TheMcCoy. Given that Thor is calculative and likes control, and that Banner (when he's not Hulk) is calm and logical, either one could be TheSpock.

The [=McCoy=] is part of a 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.

The [=McCoy=] still functions as an admirable character, however, due to his absolute devotion to his Moral beliefs and his refusal to give in to what others may tell him. For him, there is no such thing as acceptable losses (unless offset by a larger return fitting the loss). And if you start claiming that [[WeHaveReserves numbers can be lost]] or that AMillionIsAStatistic, you can expect a thorough [[WhatTheHellHero chewing out for your coldness]]. In the [=McCoy=]'s mind, every life matters and everyone deserves to be saved. While TheSpock sees people as numbers in the greater picture, The [=McCoy=] sees people with real lives and emotions.
