* Imoen, from the ''BaldursGate'' games, especially the second one. Though at times very much vulnerable to BreakTheCutie, a few minutes later she would be right back to her old cheerful self. "It's just like old times... well, except for the torture and all."

Added DiffLines:

* Sunny from ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. She cheerfully interacts with every other hunter, regardless of how much they return the sentiment. She actually manages a degree of success, getting several of the more anti-social individuals to start trusting the team or at least come out of their shell. Even while in the middle of a hunt, she takes the time to talk about how cute some of the wildlife is.

* {{Averted|Trope}} to tragic effect in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. On a KillEmAll playthrough, when you meet [[WakeUpCallBoss Papyrus]], [[spoiler:he'll approach you with friendship and mercy and try to redeem you in the hope that you can still be a good person if you only tried. Even when mortally wounded and about to die, with his last breath he will ''still'' encourage you to try and do the right thing.]] Popular consensus is that this is far more of a TearJerker than any amount of [[BreakTheCutie breaking him]], and many players report resetting the game at this point.

* The Little Sisters in ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' are surprisingly cheerful and carefree for being slaves that are forced to extract a magical substance from corpses lying around in a destroyed city, using huge syringes. In the last level of ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock 2}}'', you gain temporary control of a Little Sister and see Rapture through her eyes, which looks like [[CrapsaccharineWorld a bright and happy fairy tale castle]]. And then reality breaks in reminding you that you are in fact still in a submerged dystopia where almost everyone is [[EverythingTryingToKillYou completely insane]] and security systems [[EverythingTryingToKillYou specifically hate you]].

* One of the major songs from the ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'' series is called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBbRJoHTJAM ''Pollyanna'']], and the lyrics are about, well, a Pollyanna. This isn't obvious in the games (Especially the first two, which have minimal character dialogue), but there is a small theme about keeping happy no matter what happens to you.

* Claudia from ''VideoGame/{{CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow}}'': She's an orphan, [[LastOfHisKind the last Agarthian alive]], a mere child despite being Really700YearsOld and a lonely, [[CuteMute mute young girl]] scraping her life along with [[ABoyAndHisDog her Guardian Golem]]. Also, [[spoiler: she's [[DoomedByCanon fated to die at your hands]] to save humanity from evil]]. Despite this barrage of sadness she's cheery, lively and literally prances towards her fate with a sunny disposition, well knowing her hardships were worth the prize.

* Tidus from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is perhaps the best-known male example. Despite everything he's gone through with an abusive father, then loosing everything he has ever known, he remains positive and upbeat. A refreshing change from the [[{{wangst}} usual]] ''FinalFantasy'' hero.
