* Flora Reinhold, of the ''ProfessorLayton'' games, is like this -- particularly in the third game, ''UnwoundFuture''. She has some pretty good reasons to be TheWoobie; both her parents have died, leaving her as a LonelyRichKid, and while she has a home with the Professor and he very evidently loves her dearly, he has an unfortunate habit (from her point of view) of trying to leave her at home for her own safety. Still, she comes across as SpoiledSweet; she doesn't have a cruel bone in her body, she likes most everyone, and even Layton's archnemesis has an obvious soft spot for her.
* Smiley in ''RiddleSchool''. Despite being kidnapped twice, she still lives up to her name.

* Of all people, Excellen Browning from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2'' and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration OG series]]. You think that the resident [[TheTease teasing]] [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie]] HardDrinkingPartyGirl CoolBigSis can't even be serious during the most downer of moments ([[spoiler:losing [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]] was, in effect, a massive "PlayerPunch" to her]])). That's not the case for Excellen; in fact, it's her sunny disposition that's what really cheers her teammates up, no matter how bad the situation is.

* Leon from ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'' (he made his debut in ''X''). He is a certified IronWoobie (see that trope for the full scoop). Considering that his [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstory]] [[WarIsHell is the]] [[ParentalAbandonment most tragically]] [[EyeScream horrific one]] by '''light-years''', his ability to remain so [[{{Keet}} infectiously happy-go-lucky]] (perhaps only rivaled/outdone by [[GenkiGirl Princia]] in this regard) is simply ''astonishing''.

** Speaking of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', Brailee Ewers in Arefu is what happens when this trope [[XMeetsY meets]] CloudCuckooLander.

* There's reason to regard Link in the various ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games as a male Pollyanna. In each game, he's more or less pushed out of his peaceful lifestyle and into massive amounts of fighting, with little to show for it at the end in the way of reward. He gets turned into different animals, stranded in foreign countries, and never even gets the girl (except when he does). He's basically a plaything of the Hyrulean gods. But he's still friendly, good-natured, and never turns down a request for help.

* Captain Olimar in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' manages to see the majesty in a planet that is essentially a DeathWorld to his species. Of course his ventures have probably made him richer than entire countries.
