* ''Manga/SixHalf'' has Akio Kikukawa. He is just nice and an absolute sweetheart. He always puts his family ahead of himself, is willing and ready to listen to them at any point of the day or night and encourages them to do things they want. Though there are implications that he can be [[BewareTheNiceOnes not nice]] and his overall helpful personality to be part of a StepfordSmiler routine.



* ''Manhwa/IWish'' has Byeong-Hui Park. He is nice to a fault. He can't say no to a person that needs help, including giving them large amounts of money, because he can't get himself to turn someone down. Byeong-Hui also hates hurting people's feelings, so even if rejecting someone would be the better thing to do, he doesn't. Case in point, Lyu-Jin gave him chocolates for Valentine's Day once and Byeong-Hui ate them, despite being allergic to chocolate, just so she wouldn't be hurt. That's also why she's so cared of [[CannotSpitItOut confessing her feelings to him]].

* Both Belldandy and Keiichi of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' are nice people, each being the TropeCodifier for YamatoNadeshiko and NiceGuy respectively. In fact, their relationship exists because Keiichi was a fundamentally good enough person to attactact a goddess's attention. Keiichi isn't a doormat; he's got a snarky personality and a backbone.

** [[DudeLooksLikeALady Hasta]] as well. Cute, sweet, cuddly and good-hearted young boy. So much so that of all the characters in Mahiro's harem that consist of CthulhuMythos, he's the only person who didn't receive the wrong end of the fork from Mahiro.

* Max Sterling/Max Jenius of ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''/''Anime/{{Macross}}'' is an unusual example of a definite NiceGuy who is also TheAce. And he's not the main character, either. (He does, however, get HappilyMarried half-way through the series, which the main character doesn't even accomplish before the series ends.).

*** Of course, early Naruto was more a JerkWithAHeartOfGold - a foolhardly braggart who couldn't really understand how the people around him would feel about some of his behaviour, and sometimes made things worse because of his stupidity or boastfulness. Then again, he was viewed as an outcast for something he couldn't control and the isolation caused him to resent the village. He ended up choosing to become ThePrankster as a means of getting attention, viwing it preferable than being looked at as not human. Once people accept for who he is and gains friends, he shows off that he really is a kind person, attributes that get expanded upon in filler.

** Ash Ketchum. He's pretty much the nicest and sweetest character in that anime. Early on he had a more brash and immature personality but has mellowed out dramatically. Even flashbacks tend to portray him as the Nice Guy he became post-CharacterDevelopment rather than the bratty IdiotHero he was in Kanto.



** There's also Ash's newest companion in ''Best Wishes'': Cilan, who is always trying to settle things between characters that fight. [[BewaretheNiceOnes Just don't piss him off...]] [[CuteAndPsycho you really don't want to piss him off.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The first ending to ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' outright states that Ririka is sweet. She has her rough traits and [[GoodIsNotSoft her enemies]] but she's overall nice. She is the Nurse Angel after all, and is the only one who can save the planet. [[spoiler:She even undergoes a HeroicSacrifice, though she apparently somehow lives.]]
-->''Ririka is a kind girl.''
-->''She's a girl who's loved by everyone.''
-->''And when you're in a pinch, somehow she'll be there to give you a hand.''

* Yokoi Rumi from ''Manga/TonariNoSekiKun'' is a textbook example. Humans, animal, toys and shogi pieces will all get a piece of her giant kindness.

** Usagi (aka Sailor Moon), the main character of the show, is one of the friendliest and most compassionate heroes in anime and manga, once you get past her brattiness. During the R season, even though [=ChibiUsa=] causes the Senshi a lot of trouble and makes it clear that she has no respect for Usagi as a person or as a Senshi, Usagi constantly reaches out to her, and allows herself to be viciously attacked by Rubeus to keep [=ChibiUsa=] safe. She even tries to lift the spirits of an enemy (though she doesn't know it) who is actively going after Mamoru, her boyfriend and future husband!

She even tries to lift the spirits of an enemy (though she doesn't know it) who is actively going after Mamoru, her boyfriend and future husband!husband!
** Minako Aino (aka Sailor Venus), of who Usagi is an {{Expy}} of. While rough around the edges and rather HotBlooded, Minako will help ''everyone'', even to her own detriment (a classic example comes from ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', where she helped a mangaka who was late with her job without expecting to be paid even after finding out how hard it was, and when paid didn't put up much resistance when Artemis told her to give it back). This is balanced by [[BewareTheNiceOnes how ruthless she is with those who threatens her friends or mission]].



** Despite her [[JapaneseDelinquents apparent]] [[HugeSchoolgirl thuggish]] appearance and reputation for getting into brawls, Makoto Kino (Sailor Jupiter) is a sensitive, generous soul who would never harm an innocent person. Like Ami, she is also an example of BewareTheNiceOnes as she'll [[BullyHunter gladly take on somebody who she sees mistreating others.]]
** Setsuna Meioh (Sailor Pluto) also counts, in contrast to the [[SmugSuper Outer]] [[IWorkAlone Senshi]], as she is the only Outer willing to cooperate with and help the Inner Senshi, and is very caring and warm towards Chibiusa.

** Among the lesser characters, Naru Osaka and Hikaru Sorano (who only appears in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'') are almost as nice as Usagi, with Hikaru being so nice that Artemis once wished ''she'' was Sailor V.

* Poor Hojo from ''Manga/InuYasha''. He is so nice that no one has the heart to tell him that is not [[BelligerentSexualTension how things work]] in [[RumikoTakahashi that universe]].
