Added DiffLines:

* Mako Mankanshoku from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is amazingly cheerful and upbeat for a lowly Zero-Star student whose life is constantly imperiled by being entangled in Ryuko's adventures.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Isanami comes across as this, but there is a lot of StepfordSmiler in her as the reason she has to stay positive is [[spoiler:so that her SuperPoweredEvilSide [[DestroyerDeity Izanami]] stays under control.]]

** Just about every creature is like this, unless they like being a LoneWolf or they have a much more serious attitude as a late-stage evolution. It has been proven many times that being "adults" isn't enough to exclude them from the attitude and still may act like morons.

Added DiffLines:

* Ash from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', after the Hoenn season was over, or specifically after his feud with Brawly. The guy has hardly lost his sunny disposition despite suffering many times in his adventure, though this is extremely exaggerated whenever he loses the chance of winning a league and he just keeps smiling and never considers having a rematch outside the league (contrasting heavily to how he was an emotional wreck when he lost the Kanto League). That is, unless he constantly butts heads with a {{Jerkass}} rival that riles him up for being a disrespectful prick to the title creatures or him.
** Pikachu himself is another prime example.

** On that note, unless you're not the {{Jerkass}} rival, you are this by default, invoking a SugarBowl.

Added DiffLines:

* Butterfly from ''Manga/MademoiselleButterfly''. Sold as a child to a geisha house, facing the perspective of getting married to a stranger and never seeing again his childhood love, [[spoiler: getting thrown into jail as a way of blackmailing said love, and after getting married having to get separated once he gets drafted into war]] aren't enough to break her spirit.

* Mikan Sakura from ''Manga/GakuenAlice''. She's eternally optimistic, and happy. She's the EXACT DEFINITION of the Pollyanna. Even after [[spoiler: Mikan discovers her alices]] and all the horrible stuff that happens to her, she always cheers everyone up. Even [[spoiler: Natsume and Luka love her, eventually. And Natsume Truly and deeply loves Mikan. But really, who CAN'T love Mikan?]]

* [[Anime/ExcelSaga Excel Excel]], the ultimate oblivious GenkiGirl, who will always believe that she is Il Palazzo's favorite minion no matter how violently he rebuffs he, until [[spoiler: Il Palazzo shoots her at the end of episode 23. Although he has shot her before, including with antimateriel weapons, during this episode the ToonPhysics are turned off]].

* Shu from ''NowAndThenHereAndThere'' is as straight an example of this trope as you could ask for.

* Lacus Clyne, from ''Anime/GundamSEED'' is a borderline example. She manages to maintain her childish idealism in spite of everything that happens, including her father losing his office to a genocidal maniac and then being murdered by him, along with most of his supporters and nearly Lacus herself, the nuking of several colonies and just generally living through a Gundam show. She ''did'' cry when she told Kira about her dad [[spoiler: and was ''very'' upset when her BodyDouble Meer [[TakingTheBullet took a fatal shot]] for her]], but other than that, she rarely breaks down.
