* Partially subverted in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' with Dimo. He's a [[SuperSoldier Jaeger]], who don't have the best reputation due to their UndyingLoyalty to the [[BigScrewedUpFamily Heterodynes]], and is a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060419#.Vv_66uIrLIU bloodthirsty killer]] when he needs to be. But he ''is'' loyal to Agatha, since she's a Heterodyne, which makes him a protagonist. And although none of the Jaegers are [[BoisterousBruiser particularly intelligent]], he's one of the more cunning of the ones we've met.
