* Kit Smith of the ''AuntDimity'' series, though of the [[AntiHero anti-heroic variety]] due to his reserve and his issues with his father. Lori describes him as the most beautiful man she had ever seen, with the eyes of a saint and [[DiseaseBleach hair prematurely grey due to stress and illness]]. At times he is [[TheLancer Lori's foil and helper]]. It takes seven years and several books for Nell Harris to finally get him to the altar.

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': Mizzamir. Though on the surface he is a kindly elven mage, he's also got no problem with brainwashing villains into becoming good.

* Kaworu Nagisa from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' embodies most of shounen's "creepy guy" traits: an existentialist, [[spoiler:angelic]] [[EvilAlbino albino]] who [[WickedCultured likes to whistle classical music, wax philosophical]] and [[AmbiguouslyGay is probably gay]]. Typically, he is a "victim" of DracoInLeatherPants fandom reaction. The fact that he's an exceptionally nice guy and [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxFmbeDzcyU dies to save or at least buy some time for Shinji]]]] makes it not surprising that he gets Leather Pants. Though this only applies to a few versions of said character. Some are more monstrous and twisted, and others are just gay.
** ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' reconstructs Kaworu as ''even'' nicer, starting by stopping an Impact triggered [[spoiler:by Shinji in the end of 2.0. By 3.0, he's defined as purely heroic, if extremely naive, angel-guy who wants to save humanity from extinction, go against his wicked keepers of SEELE and push his beloved Shinji to the path of heroism and happiness as the savior of the lilin. The movies and the seiyuu portray him as being aware of his past "lives" vaguely defined as of what that involves. He dies tragically, because Shinji betrays his trust and stops listening to him in a crucial moment. Interestingly enough, Shinji and Kaworu seem able to do the same: trigger Impacts.]]
