** As is Jordis, who is given to you as a house carl if you help Solitude. Honest and sincere, interactions with her paint her as a utter sweetheart and cut dialogue (making her voice a popular choice for follower mods) has her give positive input into your actions, jokes about you whisking her away for adventure and how she just wants to find a nice man [[BiTheWay (or woman)]] to marry.
** ''Dawnguard'' gives us Serana, a vampire Dovahkiin finds sealed away, and snarkiness aside is basically everything that vampires and the people in the CrapsackWorld of Tamiral are not. She's polite, supportive, a little shy, and honestly wants to help put a stop to her family. ''Dragonborn'' has the Skall, a entire race of nice guys who are tough as nails Nords living a nomadic life and habitually fight off anyone attacking wanderers of Morrowind before taking these adventurers in as their own.

* ''Franchise/{{Dishonored|Series}}'':
** The aging boatman Samuel Beechworth and Lady Callista Curnow are the prime contenders for the Nicest Guy and Girl in the original ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'', respectively. Samuel is a down-to-earth working-class man with a simple, but perfectly tuned moral compass, who will praise Corvo for going an extra mile to find non-violent approaches and dispense karmic justice on those who deserved it. Callista, meanwhile, sacrifices her own dreams to become a mother figure to the recently orphaned Emily and will actually physically fight [[spoiler:Havelock when he decides his co-conspirators have outlived their purpose and captures Emily in his own bid for power]].
** In ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'', Aramis Stilton is pretty much the only person who neither turns evil on you, nor hides some dark secret. A poor immigrant who worked his way up from a miner to millionaire, only to continue working tirelessly to improve his workers' lot... too bad he is hopelessly insane by the time you meet him. [[spoiler:If you manage to manipulate the past to prevent his insanity, he becomes one of the {{Big Good}}s of the game's ending.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': The Main Character is a fairly friendly fellow. Like the protagonist of the previous game, he doesn't say much, but he's sociable and kind to those around him. With many of his Confidants, he may even venture into Mementos to track down the Shadows of those who are causing grief to his friends, forcing them to change their hearts and make life a little easier for his loved ones. [[spoiler:This eventually leads to the Confidant finding out about his being a Phantom Thief, but they keep his secret, and in turn, aid him when he fakes his death late in the game.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGame/PapersPlease'' has Jorji Costava, a career criminal who regularly makes attempts to enter Arstotzka. When you deny him entry, he takes it in stride and bears no ill will towards you for doing your job (unless you turn him away when he has all of his papers in order for once, in which case, [[WhatTheHellHero he will be fairly miffed]]). [[spoiler:If you get along with him fairly well, even when you turn him away, he'll offer you information on how to escape from the country, should you need to flee.]]

* Stefan Bekowsky from ''VideoGame/LANoire'' is this compared to the rest of Cole's partners, who are a (somewhat loveable) sexist, a despicable SmugSnake, and a WW1 vet with an initially abrasive attitude. Bekowsky himself? His worst flaw is occasionally flirting with female victims.

* Prince Sidon from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is practically the nicest person Link will ever meet. Sidon treats Link with the utmost respect for him and stands up for him when the elder Zoras don't want him around. Sidon also makes sure Link is doing alright as he makes his way to Zora's Domain and believes in his abilities that would help save the Zora people. Sidon also helps Link directly when combatting the divine beat so Link can get inside. After Link saves Zora's Domain, Sidon is more than happy to express his gratefulness to Link. He does all this without ever asking for anything in return.

* Beck from ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'', who cares for others, tries to avoid fighting (if possible), and tries to use his xel-manipulating abilities in a positive light. He even go as far as trying to purge the infected xels causing his Mighty Number siblings to go haywire in his own game rather than destroy them outright contrast to his [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic spiritual predecessor]], and the spin-off game ''Mighty Gunvolt Burst'', [[spoiler:felt regretful about fighting simulated versions of his siblings in Dr. White's VR program and wants them to be changed out]].

* GenkiGirl Moira from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' is one of the few people in the game that is not an obnoxious asshole who urges you to kill him, also, most ghouls in their town.
** Of course, during her sidequest, she pretty much encourages you to expose yourself to near fatal amounts of radiation, and severely injure yourself. [[ForScience All in the name of research, of course]] (though she at least has the decency to patch you up afterwards.) And you don't actually HAVE to do it, you can instead just crush her dreams and leave her horribly depressed. Or you can nuke her hometown and leave her as a radioactive ghoul... YouBastard.
** Paladin Hoss is genuinely grateful to a Good Karma Lone Wanderer who helps him out, giving praise and promising protection.

** The Sole Survivor's personality from ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' defaults to this, being possibly one of the nicest Fallout protagonists to appear so far. The [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}} Lone Wanderer]] and [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Courier]] [[VillainProtagonist can be played as absolute monster]], but the absolute worst the Sole Survivor can be a is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who travels around helping people but keeps hitting them up for money and occasionally being a DeadpanSnarker. Picking the bottom options consistently leads to an almost superhumanly friendly personality.
*** All of the Good-aligned companions qualify, naturally. Preston Garvey maintains a professional soldierly demeanour and is a textbook OfficerAndAGentleman, Deacon is laid-back and very cool guy with a breezy atiitude, Curie is unflinchingly polite and approves of noble actions, and Piper is playful, easy to get along with and passionate about helping the people of the Commonwealth.
