->''"He would seduce a duchess, but he would never spoil a virgin."''
-->-- '''Creator/RaymondChandler''', on Literature/PhilipMarlowe

He can't stop ogling the ladies. But unlike some who ogle the ladies, he actually ''cares'' about them as people. Woe betide anyone who wrongs women, for he's watching you like a hawk--when he's not watching them, that is. Undoubtedly the best type of pervert. Always a good guy, and just to reaffirm that he's a good guy, they'll occasionally give him a rival in the form of [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty an actually dangerous pervert]] who would cross the boundaries the Chivalrous one never could.
Such a serious Chivalrous Pervert is very likely to also be an EthicalSlut with a benevolent ForHappiness morality. However, it could also be that some part of him might also believe that SexIsEvil and make him feel guilty about his "immoral" [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny horniness]] and [[AvertedTrope overcompensate for it]] by being extra nice. Or his hypersexuality could be an outlet for more complex personal issues, often making him TheWoobie.

Compare HandsomeLech, whose morals are a bit more loose but not as much as the villainous perv; CovertPervert, who is also sympathetic but in no way vocal about their… tastes; and LovableSexManiac, who fulfills the latter half of this page's title but most certainly not the former ''and'' tends to go for the RuleOfFunny. A ChivalrousPervert who prefers to spy on those of his preferred gender may be ThePeepingTom. The DirtyOldMan will often be this, or at least act the part, if for no other reason than his being too physically weak to commit sexual atrocities. Also compare his DistaffCounterpart, the GoodBadGirl. May end up setting a girl to PervertRevengeMode or even an UnprovokedPervertPayback. Contrast the ChasteHero and SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Eita Touga of ''Manga/TwelveBeast''. However polite and professional he is, the universe will ''always'' [[IronButtMonkey put him in an awkward situation,]] [[PervertRevengeMode within range of violent retribution.]]
* Akatsuki Oosawa from ''LightNovel/AestheticaOfARogueHero'' is one HELL of an HormoneAddledTeenager and uses his powers to this purpose, much to the embarrassment and anger of the girls in the cast... but he ''cannot'' resist to see a girl in tears, and [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl will go to great lengths]] to fix it.
* Hachibe Maeda of ''Manga/AiKora'' is a strange case. While admittedly an individual who values women for the aesthetic appeal of their various body parts, he is willing to go to extreme lengths to protect the owners of those parts.
* [[MoeAnthropomorphism Greece]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', especially when compared to resident LovableSexManiac France. He's known as #1 in the frequency of sex among nations and [[NakedPeopleAreFunny has even less problems with nudity]] than France does, but his overall personality is ''[[NiceGuy very]]'' [[KindheartedCatLover different]] from France's. This becomes most obvious when he's shown with Japan: he's made one or two sexual advances towards him (which may or may not include actual sex), but most signs of his genuine affection for him are less centered on sex and actually pretty sweet (seriously, trying to speak Japanese? Taking all of Japan's snacks after the other nations ignore them? Being worried about his hair looking unkempt to Japan?).
** Not to mention, the nations generally panic at the prospect of France being around because they fear he'll jump on them (And let's be honest, [[AnythingThatMoves he probably WILL]]). Greece, despite being known as [[ReallyGetsAround *very* sexually active]], does ''not'' incite that same reaction.
** A subtler version is Prussia, who [[SmallNameBigEgo might talk big about]] how fearless and awesome he is, but freaks out at the sight of [[InnocentFanserviceGirl a teen Hungary's]] [[ClothingDamage half-naked body]] and, once he realizes [[UnsettlingGenderReveal she's a female]], [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn he quickly hands her his cape for cover.]]
** There's also Seborga, who is a LatinLover but doesn't hit on female nation-tans who are too young for him, like Wy. (He does promise to do it when SheIsAllGrownUp.)
** France sees himself is this. "Love should never be forced on anyone," indeed. However in practice he himself pushes boundaries without fully crossing them. He will not outright rape anyone, true, but he has flipped skirts, undressed people of both genders against their wills, etc. Not to mention [[BrutalHonesty openly admitting he's a pervert]] [[AtLeastIAdmitIt and takes some degree of pride on it]], which is something an average example would most likely think twice before doing.
%%* Jenos from ''Manga/BlackCat''.
* Shunsui Kyoraku from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' loves flirting with his lieutenant, HotLibrarian Nanao, and was known for chasing girls when he was in the shinigami academy. He promptly rescues Nanao when she collapses after Yamamoto sends out his ''enormous'' reiatsu and it overwhelms her. He's also a very badass captain who first tries to convince his rivals to give up on their purposes ''and'' [[MartialPacifist only accepts to fight so he won't disgrace his opponents]].
* The character Ral from the manga ''Blue Dragon'' (note: has nothing to do with the game) is this. Finding out the difference between men and women is a big part of his CharacterDevelopment. (The fact that women have boobs and that he loves said boobies helps a lot.)
* Kurozuma Wataru from ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' is a super rare type of guy who can make a sincere comment about a girl's figure (and he does so to [[ACupAngst two people who are likely to fly off the handle at that]]) and give no offence. As Misaka and Kuroko said, he commented on their breasts in a strangely unperverted manner [[note]](He was reminiscing about when Konori-senpai's breasts were like that)[[/note]].
* Hideki from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''. Make no mistake, he is a underwear-ogling porn addict, but would never take advantage of Chi in that way. [[BerserkButton And heaven help you if you do]].
* ''Manga/CityHunter'':
** Ryo Saeba is sometimes this and sometimes just an HandsomeLech. The "chivalrous" part is mainly when he's getting serious.
** Mick Angel also sways between this and Handsome Lech.
* The deceased Prince Clovis la Britannia from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', who despite being a tyrannical bastard, isn't a misogynist in the least. You'd never guess it if not for the 6th PictureDrama, though: it has his half-sisters, Cornelia and Euphemia, checking on some stuff he left… and [[BigBrotherInstinct Cornelia]] frets over the sweet and naive Euphemia being willing to wear one ''very'' revealing swimsuit that Clovis designed in his free time. Milly also has shades of this.
* Cross Marian ''Manga/DGrayMan''. His character info in the fanbook, lists one of his likes is "good women." He has no problem hitting on pretty girls, even younger ones like Lenalee. But when he found out about [[spoiler: the death of one of his lovers, a young woman named Anita]], he was genuinely saddened and despite him not wanting [[spoiler: Anita]] to follow him, he says she was a good woman. It's also stated, by Allen, that under his bed at [[ReligiousBruiser his church,]] is filled with keepsakes from his lovers-pictures and accessories. Seems to show a sentimental side to Cross.
** With the aforementioned Lenalee, he holds her close, and protects her on the crumbling ark, while simultaneously trying to halt download of the Akuma Egg, but he never lets go of her, until after danger has passed. He also only stayed at the Order, which he hates, because Lenalee asked him to. It ended being a FatalFlaw.
* Shoei Jinnai of ''Manga/DesireClimax'' evolves into one of these throughout the StoryArc, albeit most certainly starting off as a bit of an IHaveYouNowMyPretty with Mio Omori.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': Goku's late Grandpa Gohan is hinted to be quite a ladies' man; when he briefly comes back to life in the Fortuneteller Baba Saga, he mentions having a lot of friends in Other World, "and most of them are brunettes." Nonetheless, Goku mentions to Bulma that Gohan always taught him to be respectful and polite towards girls, and in any case, he's nowhere near as much of a DirtyOldMan as Master Roshi.
%%* Masaomi Kida and Chikage Rokujo from ''Manga/{{Durarara}}''.
* No doubt, Loke/Leo from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is a player, but he's always there for Lucy when she needs him (unless he's out with his girlfriend).
* Saito in ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' (more on the chivalrous side in the LightNovel and more on the perverted side in the anime). He's attracted to pretty much his entire UnwantedHarem, including [[{{Tsundere}} his master Louise]], his maid Siesta, the flirty Kirche, [[EmotionlessGirl the quiet]] [[SugarAndIcePersonality Tabitha]], [[InnocentFanserviceGirl the naive Tiffania]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses and even Princess Henrietta]]. Despite his perverted side, he never takes advantage of them even when given an opportunity. Not even when Louise becomes a lovey-dovey ClingyJealousGirl under effect of a LovePotion.
* Shigure from the anime version of ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. He is berated by many of the other Sohmas for it, but it becomes an almost endearing RunningGag nonetheless. In the manga [[spoiler: he uses sex as a tool to have revenge against Akito, his cousin and ex-lover, for running in the arms of their cousin Kureno... by sleeping with Akito's ''mother'' Ren.]] And let's not forget the deal with [[spoiler: Rin]], either, [[spoiler: though to his credit he doesn't take her offer.]]
* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': Kurz Weber. Best summed up in his fight at the end of the first season, in which he rejects a WeCanRuleTogether speech by suggesting a counterstrategy: "I'll kill you, ask Tessa for a picture of her in her swimsuit as a reward, and sell copies to everyone on the ship for $20 apiece." Shortly afterward, when Melissa Mao turns up in nothing but her underwear to save him and then passes out, his only reaction is to sit dolefully next to her and lament that he doesn't have a camera. He also tends to use his reputation as a pervert to distract others and avoid conversations he doesn't care for. Probably better demonstrated just before that when he gets [[WhatTheHellHero genuinely mad]] at [[NotSoStoic Sousuke]] for making Kaname cry, despite missing no opportunities to generally be a lech over the series.
* Worick Arcangelo of ''Manga/{{Gangsta}}''. Though thoroughly a JerkWithAHeartOfGold even when nursing wounds the man can't pass up a chance to grope a cute girl's butt.
* Emishi Haruki from ''Manga/GetBackers''. He considers harming a woman to be just about the most terrible sin imaginable, and opponents admitting to it is nearly a BerserkButton; meanwhile, he happily flirts with every woman he meets. The closest he's come to 'pervert' was abruptly burying his face in a female friend's breasts, while desperately trying to cheer himself up [[spoiler:after Amon's HeroicSacrifice]].
* Kintarou Oe from ''Manga/GoldenBoy'' is this combined with BrilliantButLazy. He is a genius who completed all of his university courses in record time, but decided to quit before graduating. In the first episode, after he accidentally deletes the software company he's working at's major software program the day before it's set to ship, he manages to write only in a week not only a program that took the rest of the staff three months to complete, but makes it far more user-friendly than it originally was.
* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'': Onizuka, when he's not being an [[TheAce inspiration to everyone around him]]. Always thinking of sex, looks up girl's skirts, has [[PornStash sex toys and porn galore]], sizes up ''every'' attractive woman and became a teacher specifically for the schoolgirls. Yet when given the opportunity to act on these impulses with the young girls he's responsible for, his conscience doesn't allow it. (To wit, when [[spoiler: Urumi]] semi-seriously offered herself to him he ''knocked himself unconscious'' rather than kiss her.) A lot of that also has to do with the fact that Onizuka is a man-child who is ''terrified'' of actual sexuality, and just plays up his lothario qualities for show. In fact, the comic establishes pretty early on [[spoiler:that he's still a virgin]].
%%* Teppa Aizen in ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}''. Additionally, a badass and a lady-killer.
* Roybea Roy from ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX''. One episode has him buying swimsuits for the crew girls after checking their measurements ''by mere sight'', another has him visiting each one of his old girlfriends to see how are they holding up (including a IllGirl whom he buys medicines for [[spoiler: and the tombstone of the woman who actually gave him his Gundam]]). He also [[spoiler: is very upset when one of his lovers, FemmeFatale Yurina, is shot to death, and very gracefully accepts Sala Tyrrell's apologies and definitive rejection of his affections.]]
%%* Felten from ''Manga/HanaToAkuma'' plays this trope very, very straight, despite having been engaged from ''birth''.
* [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]] from the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' franchise, even though he rarely has actually needed to avenge the dishonor of a beautiful lady -- but push the [[BigBrotherInstinct right]] [[BerserkButton buttons]] and he'll defend.
%%* Pochi from ''Manga/HeIsMyMaster'', particularly when compared to Yoshitaka.
* Tomoki of ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'' leans very heavily on the pervert side of the scale, but damn does he hate it when people don't treat the Angeloids, his UnwantedHarem, with respect as people and not just the slaves they are programmed to be.
* Meisuke "Nube" Nueno from ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'' is a CovertPervert for his busty workmate Ritsuko and more or less often ogles pretty women, but never ever tried to ogle his students no matter [[HugeSchoolgirl how well-endowed]] [[ArtisticAge some of them are]] (* cough* Miki * cough* Ai), and lectured highschool-aged Izuna harshly when he believed she was into EnjoKosai (Iwhich is the Japanese equivalent of teen prostitution, to say it simply). And when a very pretty 15-years-old girl [[AnIcePerson with ice powers]] claims to be in love with him, he repeatedly refuses her affections by saying that she's too young for him - which is technically true, [[MayDecemberRomance as he's 26 already]]. [[spoiler: She has to die and then be revived before he comes to love her back]]
* In ''Literature/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'', Gieve will flirt with every pretty girl within the vicinity but when Silvermask kills one of the Queen's handmaidens, Gieve was visibly saddened and angry and respectfully covered the girl's body afterwards.
* Issei Hyoudou, protagonist of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', is this trope par excellence, constantly ranting out loud about the wonders of boobs and not sparing even his love interests of his antics. For all of it, though, he has great respect for women and is loath to see them treated badly. When Riser molests his [[ChessMotifs Queen]] in front of him just to make Issei jealous, then makes a comment that his arranged fiancee [[spoiler:Rias]] will make a nice notch on his belt, he didn't know he pushed Issei's {{Big Red|Button}} BerserkButton. [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge You can only imagine what happened next.]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Inukami}}'': Keita, and those four Citizens of Darkness guys who he often share a jail cell with. They're peeping toms and panty thieves but that's as far as they go. They're the 'good' perverts that contrast the evil perversion of the BigBad, who likes undressing people and putting them in embarrassing cosplay.
* Miroku from ''Manga/InuYasha''. Somewhat subverted by the fact that he eventually becomes a one-woman man ''without'' losing this quality in the slightest, much to his fiancée [[ActionGirl Sango's]] exasperation. In a rather early arc, there is a young woman named Koharu, [[IOweYouMyLife whose life he saved years ago]]; she's very enamoured with him but Miroku actually ''turns her affections down'', believing it was a case of LovingAShadow.
* Arima's best friend Hideaki Asaba from ''Manga/KareKano'' might also apply; he loves being surrounded by his "kittens."
** In the manga's epilogue, he becomes an artist famous for portraits of women. Part of his success is that he always paints them (except for Yukino...) as ten times prettier than they actually are. When they point this out to him, he just shrugs and says that's how he sees them.
** While Asaba may have entertained the notion that Arima and Yukino's future daughter would be his soul mate, he gave up on that idea pretty quickly when she was born and became another father figure to her. When she turned fifteen and confessed her love for him, Asaba was really disturbed.
* Dr. Akari from ''Manga/{{Karneval}}'' ''knows'' that he's a handsome bastard that women want (yet whom the nurses hilariously deny), but seemingly hasn't exercised the "pervert" portion as far as the viewer is concerned.
* Dr. Shamal from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' once claimed that he "treats every cutie equally"... that, and he was also dating over 2,000 women at a time.
* Ma Kensei from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is a Martial Arts grandmaster firmly on the side of Good. Between spending his free time trying to take panty shot of women and evading evisceration from these women he was able to steal the underwear of a psycho samourai chick FROM UNDER HER ARMOR! Turns out he just wanted to strip her from her soul-corrupting armor and rescue her from the path of evil.
-->''"Why can't the world be just more ero and peaceful?"''
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' has the males of the Mankanshoku family (including the ''dog''), who both treat protagonist Ryuko like a sister/daughter, and peep on her more or less any time she's less than clothed, but at one point when the family gets AcquiredSituationalNarcissism thanks to increasing their status she's actually ''disappointed'' to realize that none of them are peeping on her.
** Even [[AmbiguouslyBi Mako]] [[LesYay Mankanshoku]] can count as this, as she rather frequently gropes Ryuko and makes remarks about her sexiness. At one point, she can be seen peeping through her fingers and getting a nosebleed while Ryuko is scantily-clad. The perversions don't stop her from being Ryuko's most loyal friend and saving her life multiple times.
* Sakanami from ''Manga/KoeDeOshigoto'' considers sexual harassment to be the ultimate compliment to a girl, but himself will never touch a woman unless she wants him to.
* The female genderbent version of Zhao Yun/Chou Un from ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou'' is a female example, in that she never gives in to outright harassment - so far.
* Manabe from ''Manga/KotouraSan'' repeatedly teases Haruka by having pervy fantasies about her with the express purpose of winding her up (she ''is'' a {{telepath|y}}, mind you), but when he finds out Haruka's being bullied he confronts the bully about it-- even the bully in question is his ChildhoodFriend.
* The eponymous Franchise/LupinIII, in the anime. The manga incarnation goes way further in matters of perversion, to the point that he's a CasanovaWannabe.
* Michel ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS Michael? Mikhail?]]) Blanc of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' is a textbook example. He eyes up and down all the pretty girls with his devilish charms, but he makes a clear effort to remember the names of those he only met for five seconds months ago, and ''will'' headlock suspected two-timing {{Jerk Ass}}es who are setting up girls for a heartbreak. Gives decent relationship advice, too. [[spoiler: And ultimately sacrifices his life for Klan, the girl he loves.]]
* ''Anime/MagicUsersClub'': While Takeo may burst into perverted fantasies at the drop of a hat, he's very protective of his fellow club members, especially Sae, and tries his best to perform his duties as president without acting on his desires.
* Usui Takumi in ''Manga/MaidSama'' delights in teasing Misaki, enough so that she habitually calls him a "perverted space alien." Aside from stealing a couple of kisses, however, he scrupulously refrains from actually taking advantage of her in any way. Most notable during the incident in which Misaki is hypnotized to behave as though drunk, and begins trying to take off her clothes - Usui rolls her up in a blanket so that she can't do anything she'd really regret later.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** Alberio Imma generally acts like this.
** Flashbacks reveal that Negi's father was like this as well, although he limited it to [[OfficialCouple a single person]] and only when they had the luxury of privacy.
** Jack Rakan certainly likes "collecting" panties, much to the consternation and mortification of Fate Averruncus' [[QuirkyMinibossSquad minions]]; and his comments to Nagi about the latter's aforementioned beau leaves little doubt that his mind has already hurled itself through the proverbial gutter. He never quite crosses beyond those boundaries, however, and developed his infamous technique to defeat female opponents by [[PantyThief stealing their panties]] and [[DefeatByModesty flipping their skirts until they concede]] to gain the upper hand without directly hurting them.
*** Also, after defeating [[spoiler:Homura]] (the only girl who kept attacking him ''after'' that), when [[spoiler: her leader Fate]] stepped in to fight - Jack immediately asked her to step aside not because she had lost, but because he didn't want her to get caught in the crossfire.
** [[BadassDriver Johnny Raidein]], who often comments on how pretty and grown [[spoiler: Yuna Akashi]] looks despite her extreme youth but never goes beyond that. [[spoiler: And he even pulls an HeroicSacrifice later.]]
* This is one of the reasons that Shizuru Viola from ''Anime/MaiOtome'' carries the CodeName of "Bewitching Smile". This being [[SchoolgirlLesbians Shizuru]], she only charms the ladies... even if by accident.
** Chie Hallard also behaves like this a little bit, especially early on. Chances are good that she probably picked it up (as well as the [[SchoolgirlLesbians "flirts with other girls" thing]]) from Shizuru.
* Nanashi from ''Manga/{{MAR}}''. He's a perv and ladies man, since you see him constantly making remarks about ladies and hanging around them. (Interestingly enough, he's also quite the chick magnet.) But at the same time, he will allow women to go first when he battles them, even going so far as to let Loco move first when she herself is a child. [[spoiler: though once was a woman. He also was shown to have let Aqua in their battle win and when Girom killed her, he picked up her corpse, quite distraught, and dropped it in the water.]]
* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'': Chibodee Crocket is a bit of a flirt and loves teasing Rain, but when needed he's extremely protective of her and the FourGirlEnsemble that forms his crew.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has Jiraiya, who openly writes pornographic novels and compliments women on their bodies but like his mythological namesake "Jiraiya the Gallant" is the epitome of this trope. He is always protective and respectful of any women under his supervision, as shown in all his dealings with Konan.
* Ryoji Kaji from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fulfills this trope very faithfully. He hits on women left and right and comes off as an aloof playboy, but is secretly very caring, driven and responsible. He is the closest to a BigBrotherMentor that Shinji has, refuses to take advantage of the much younger Asuka's affections even after she literally throws herself at him, and clearly cares very deeply about his old girlfriend Misato - it's a shame she doesn't come to terms with her own feelings for him [[spoiler: until it's too late]].
* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}''
** Comes in the form of Shu Maiko, who is the foil to the serious but AccidentalPervert prone protagonist Raku. Shu is a happy-go-lucky boy whose main hobbies include taking voyeur photographs of his female classmates and lustfully chasing after {{Joshikousei}}s. But in truth, he's actually quite popular among the girls of his class due to his kind and sincere personality, confusing both Raku and his UnwantedHarem.
** In Chapter 141, a beautiful underclassman tried to confess her feelings to him. Woah to Shu's friends when, even though he's known for ogling cute girls, respectively rejects her due to the fact that his heart was still healing from loosing his love. Even the {{tsundere}} Ruri Miyamoto, who's been kicking his perverted butt since the series' beginnings, was both confused and impressed.
* Shouta Oone of ''Manga/OmujoOmutsuJoshi'' is prone to suggestive fantasies, has presumably peeked under girls' skirts enough to grow bored of it, and inwardly cheers when a crowded train pushes him and Ichigo close together. On the other hand, he frequently covers for Ichigo if something threatens to publicly expose her need for diapers or otherwise embarrass her and is generally protective of her. He's also accepting, if confused, when he thinks his childhood friend Morei has confessed her long held secret fetish to him and firm in not giving in to aggressive senpai Muni's advances.
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Sanji, of course, so much so that he refuses to harm a woman even if it would cost him his life. Do ''not'' mistreat women in his vicinity unless you want him to [[UnstoppableRage literally explode with rage]]. He gained one of those "actually bad" rivals in the form of Absalom, a QuirkyMinibossSquad member who can turn invisible (destroyng Sanji's dream of gain this power) and who licked both the female protagonists and attacked Nami when she was bathing. That ended ''very badly'' for Absalom. [[spoiler: And considering that he gave his HoneyTrap Pudding a compliment [[SpannerInTheWorks right when she was about to kill him]], his chivalrous pervert nature ''saved his life''.]]
** It later makes clear that [[spoiler: his whole family is like this, and not just the men. His ''three'' brothers react to Nami the way he usually does to women (with two of them [[AmazonChaser clearly admiring]] her PluckyGirl nature), and his [[MsFanservice VERY hot]] big sister flirts shamelessly towards Luffy right after giving him a KissOfLife to SuckOutThePoison.]]
%%* Kairi from ''Manga/PeachGirl'', but he gets more Chivalrous, and less Perverted over the course of the story.
%%** Also "Kyuu-chan" from Miwa Ueda's other series, ''PapillonHanaToChou''.
* Near the end of episode 3 of ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'', [[OnlySaneMan Sorata]] tells [[TheCasanova Jin]] to head back to Sakura Dormitory to comfort a heartbroken Misaki, who had seen Jin and Mashiro in front of a LoveHotel. Jin declines, stating that if he saw Misaki in that state, he'd only want to do perverted things ''to her'', and [[CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest doesn't want that to happen]].
* PG-rated version: Brock from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. He actually hurts friends sometimes when going after woman, or gets hurt himself. One time he actually stood on Ash for a full minute before Ash stood up knocking him over. Another time he was ogling a lady on the beach (a lady who [[spoiler:was at best not alive anymore, or at the absolute craziness was never a female or even human to begin with]]) only to get trampled by the people behind him.
* This is Yuushi Oshitari's basic characterization in ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' {{Dating Sim}}s. He's very sweet and chivalrous to the lead girls of the games, but isn't above draping himself over them without going too far, and WordOfGod says that his ideal female is [[ShesGotLegs a girl with long, shapely legs.]] We don't see that so much in the anime or the manga, except when he tries to comfort [[spoiler: Kotoha]] after [[spoiler: Atobe sees through her BitchInSheepsClothing act and refuses the bento she brings him.]]
* Prince Wilfred from ''Manga/PrivatePrince'' loves to tease [[{{Meganekko}} Miyako]] [[GagBoobs over her big breasts]] and [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace often hugs and steals touches from her]], but he has also rescued her several times from other people and comes to genuinely care for her. [[spoiler:And they end up getting married.]]
* Warrant Officer Oreldo in ''Anime/PumpkinScissors'' embraces the trope completely. He loves the ladies, and unlike many similar characters, he enjoys quite a bit of success with them. He's also always willing to get the crap beaten out of him for the sake of some cute girl he's just met, and frequently sets himself up as the bad guy in order to make sure things are made right for the girl of the moment -- such as when, angered by how a poor girl's drug-addicted father was wasting her money and opportunities, he made a show of offering to buy her from him and then pretended to assault her in order to finally goad her father into taking action on her behalf.
* Tatewaki Kuno from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is this PlayedForLaughs. How far he falls onto the chivalrous or pervert side, usually depends on whats [[RuleOfFunny funnier]]. Usually when he thinks a girl is [[NoGuyWantsToBeChased coming onto him sexually]], he'll back off, say they're too young for such things, and should start things slow.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'':
** Ginei Morioka is incredibly perverted, and after his introduction, he's very blatant about it. However, he's very protective of his friends, and at one point he [[TakingTheBullet shields them from a massive fireball]] when he's [[LightningBruiser perfectly capable of dodging]]. Yet even in tense situations, he's quite lecherous. At one point, he [[ThanksForTheMammary grabs Kurumu's breast]] as his "reward" for rescuing them.
** Kurumu Kurono is a rare female example. She openly flirts with Tsukune and inflicts MarshmallowHell on him on a regular basis, but [[AboveTheInfluence adamantly refuses]] to use [[HypnoticEyes her powers]] to take advantage of him, preferring to win him over fairly.
** Tsukune himself has his moments of this: for example, his initial reason for wanting to join the Swimming Club (before finding out about a vampire's KryptoniteFactor) was so he could see Moka in a bikini. Nonetheless, he's ''much'' more respectful of girls than [[AllMenArePerverts the other boys at Yokai Academy]], who openly lust after women and publicly comment on their [[BuxomIsBetter breasts]].
* In ''Manga/SchoolRumble'', Yakumo is often treated with the utmost chivalry by the men around her, but her [[TheEmpath mind reading power]] tends to see much more lewd ideas in their heads. Haruki Hanai, who's most forward with her, is the most chivalrous of all the men, though he actually subverts the idea by being perfectly honest with what he says and thinks.
* Sugisaki in ''LightNovel/SeitokaiNoIchizon''. Very strong on the pervert end of the scale as his declared goal is to turn the student council into his harem and compares them to a dating sim, where after finishing Chizuru's route he would get the Best Harem End. That way (insert noble pose) everyone can be happy!
* In the series ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' Meliodas usually won't pass up a chance at being a pervert but he is still chivalrous when protecting Elizabeth and others.
* In ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'', Ryousuke is a total pervert who takes every opportunity to peep at girls or see them in revealing outfits. He also considers women to be the greatest treasures in the universe and cannot tolerate anyone harming or disrespecting them.
* Carrot Glace from ''Manga/SorcererHunters''. He's the main character and obsessively tries to date every woman he sees despite the constant rejection and the fact he already has [[PervertRevengeMode two very]] ClingyJealousGirl teammates, one of whom constantly [[RunningGag throws herself at him naked]]. The reason he never takes advantage of their affections? They're [[LikeBrotherAndSister like sisters]] to him. Carrot does have a good reason to run from [[MsFanservice Chocolat]] and [[BeautifulAllAlong Tira]]. Both have a transformation sequence that turns them into dominatrixes, and they've hurt him more than any of the bad guys. Though to be fair, Carrot suffers from PowerIncontinence: any spell that hits him turns him into a beast and the sisters have to beat him up to keep him under control. [[spoiler: At the end of the manga, Carrot does marry Tira. Chocolat isn't resentful about it at all, as she plans to take the honeymoon night]].
* Yasunobu Hattori of ''Manga/{{Suzuka}}''. While he is a pervert and generally thinking lewd thoughts, his advice to [[WhatAnIdiot protagonist Yamato Akitsuki]] would have saved everyone in the show a lot of trouble.
* In ''Manga/TonaGura'', Yuuji will not touch or dream of touching underaged LonelyRichKid Nina, her GagBoobs aside. Despite Marie's early explanation of her role in 'punishing' brother Yuuji and it being for her safety as well, there are places he will never go. Unless the target is Kazuki.
* Vash the Stampede from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' is an obvious example, though the sincerity of his perversion is up for debate as many of his apparent emotions act as covers for his overwhelming inner pain. This aspect of his personality is also mostly absent in the manga as he never really demonstrates significant attraction to any characters.
** The movie ''Trigun: Badlands Rumble'' continues this trope with Vash and cranks the comedy element UpToEleven when it comes to Amelia. Anyone who's seen the anime series in full knows that being the way he is towards women is about the best he can do to enjoy a woman's company without letting them find out just who he truly is. He acts like a pervert, but he would never ''actually'' take advantage of a woman.
* ''Manga/TrinitySeven'' main character Arata Kasuga is ''incredibly'' up front about how much he likes women with large breasts (but still likes women with no breasts, too), will openly comment on the attractiveness of his classmates, thanks women "for the meal" whenever he sees them nude or in revealing clothing, and generally makes it clear that he would enjoy having all kinds of perverted fun with anyone he finds attractive. Despite all that he is ''very'' respectful of their feelings: he doesn't try to sneak peeks at women when they expect privacy and doesn't force himself on women physically ''or'' verbally. Probably the most clear-cut example is when he turns down [[spoiler:Lilith Azami in the OVA]] when she offers herself to him for sex [[spoiler:so that he might learn about her thema, Lust]]. Arata surprises her by turning her down flat, reasoning that [[spoiler:since everyone's thema is the opposite of their core personality,]] having sex so casually is the ''last'' thing she would ever want to do; as much as he wants to do perverted things with her, he only wants to do them ''if she will enjoy them, too''.
* Ataru Moroboshi from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' normally shows more the pervert than the Chivalrous, there are incidents like when he's been inflicted by a contagious toothache that he can ease the pain of by biting (and infecting) other people, initially the entire class tries barricading themselves away from him, but then the girls realize that he would never do anything like that to a girl and apologize to him for mistrusting him. And in a later story, when he finds himself stuck with a pair of gloves that make him hug then punch anyone who comes close to him, when Lum gets close, he blocks the gloves punch by pushing his own face in it's way. Then does this again and again till he knocks himself out.
* Toshiki from [[Manga/VideoGirlAi Video Girl Len]] is an unrepentant, irresponsible, flirty TheCasanova who dates and dumps girls and constantly tries to peek on Len Momono to see her naked. He's also a loyal friend who hugs Hiromu and cries with him when he's heartbroken, [[spoiler: takes beatings from delinquents to save Hiromu and Ayumi, and when Len offers to have sex with him to see if her mission would be easier, he does '''not'' take her offer]]. Yeah, the guy may be a major pervert, but when his friends truly need him he's very much there for them, so it's no wonder that with all of his high libido he ''still'' was pure-hearted enough to see the Neo Gokuraku store.
* {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in ''Anime/WeissKreuz'' with Kudou Yoji. He's both shamelessly flirtatious toward and protective of women - at one point proclaiming that "woman's enemy is my enemy" - but he's also an assassin and male HoneyTrap, and any woman he makes any kind of emotional connection with is inevitably either a target he is using for information, a target who's trying to use ''him'' for information, or just plain [[CartwrightCurse doomed to become a statistic]]. By sequel series ''Anime/WeissKreuz Gluhen,'' the emotional toll on Yoji has become so bad that he's developed habits like talking to his dead girlfriend on the phone and unconsciously throttling his partners during sex, and he nearly pulls a FaceHeelTurn in his desperation to forget about all of it. [[spoiler: He only recovers after a complete case of VictoryGuidedAmnesia allows him to leave it all behind and marry the HospitalHottie [[FlorenceNightingaleEffect who takes care of him]].]]
* Yuuto Kigai from ''Manga/{{X 1999}}''. He sleeps with his FemmeFatale boss and is very aware of the local EmotionlessGirl's crush on him, but doesn't take advantage of the latter's feelings for him. Might be because he seems to partially see her as a ReplacementGoldfish for his sister...
* Jae-ha from ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'' who loves to generously share his beauty and charm with women (including Yona) and is the sole reason for scenes in red light districts. Often, however, he ends up helping those women without ever taking advantage of their situation.
* Yugi. You know, from ''Anime/YuGiOh''. In the [[Manga/YuGiOh manga]] he has lots of fantasies involving pretty girls, and specially about Anzu, but he doesn't act on them and is otherwise a really sweet NiceGuy. ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Our protagonist, ladies and gentlemen!]]''
* Yusuke Urameshi in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. In spades. Somewhat different in that he only acts this way towards one girl: [[JustFriends his best and oldest friend]] [[{{Tsundere}} Keiko Yukimura]], who has, apparently, been putting up with it since they were in kindergarten.
* Parco Folgore from ''Manga/ZatchBell'' is a shining example of this. Being a handsome Italian popstar, he is a hit with the ladies. He basks in their attention and it is made straight-out obvious that he is a huge womanizer in his first appearance (he even has a hit song solely about breasts. In the original Japanese version, that is). However, he would never lay a hand on a woman who showed no interest in him, and is very concerned about their will-being (for example, he took Suzume to the hospital after [[CuteClumsyGirl she hit her head against a pole and fell on her bottom]], and in that same episode he performed for and handed out gifts to a group of sick children). He always puts his friends (and especially his mamodo/partner, Kanchome) first and would never abandon them, even if he is a bit of a coward.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* Beast Boy/Changeling of Franchise/TeenTitans, far more so than his animated counterpart. He hits on anything in a skirt, although this is part of the fact that [[SadClown he acts goofy as a way to deal with his own problems]]. In one instance, the Titans are swimming and Dick and Starfire are skinny dipping in the hot tub. Something Gar says causes Starfire to [[InnocentFanserviceGirl stand up]], and even though Dick manages to cover her with a towel, Gar freaks out and starts apologizing profusely.
* ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules'': Hercules. He hooks up with the GirlOfTheWeek every other issue, partly because he wants to get laid and partly because he finds them interesting people. Taken to its logical extreme in ''Fall of an Avenger''. [[spoiler:after his death, it was revealed that Hercules had long-term relationships with different women all over the world. He would even support them with his investments until he could see them again. All of them were saddened when they learned that he was dead.]]
* Depending on the writer, [[ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] can fall under this trope.
* Tony Stark, better known as Franchise/IronMan. Famously the biggest womanizer in the Marvel Universe, yet he's incredibly polite to the women he's chatting up, cares deeply about most of his exes (the Marvel Now relaunch's opening story arc essentially boils down to him wanting to protect the legacy of one of his exes after her life's work is stolen and abused), is VERY protective of his on-again/off-again love interest Pepper, honestly loved (and still loves) Madame Masque, and is always completely supportive of his female teammates, no matter how they dress and pose.
* Conner Kent alias ComicBook/{{Superboy}}. Just some examples in ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman''. Once he and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} are caught in a "walls closing in" DeathTrap and Conner complains that would have preferred if there was ComicBook/PowerGirl with him. Another occasion, he finds some sexbots of the female Teen Titans, belonging to the teenage Toyman (''not'' the original villainous version); Conner clearly enjoys... until Tim Drake (Robin) destroy them.
--> '''Superboy''': I hate you. I hate you more than anyone I've ever known.

[[folder: Fan Fiction]]
* ''FanFic/{{Destiny is a Hazy Thing}}'': Kiba's to Karin (who is attracted to his charka like an addict and thus is generally kept in his presence) when Ino jokes that he should make a move as she would be willing to do anything he wants. Kiba immediately puts down the idea saying that while Karin is cute, he's not comfortable taking advantage of her because A) he'd prefer it if she liked him for him and not due to his charka and B) it would count as rape and he respects women too much to do that.
* ''FanFic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria'' interprets Commander Hurricane as this. An excerpt from Clover the Clever's diary informs us that the only thing he was more renowned for than his sexual prowess was his sense of honor.
* The Blog/ReadingRainbowverse interprets Thunderlane as one of these. He ends up dating Princess Luna.
* "Fanfic/FluttershysNightOut": The first stallion teenaged Fluttershy meets at the bar, who kindly tells her that she's a nice kid and really should just go home and think about whether she actually wants to be doing something like this. [[spoiler:She should have listened to him - the next one she meets, Nosey, isn't as nice]].
* The hero of ''FanFic/ALongNightAtTheHippodrome'', Piercing Gaze, is definitely lecherous, but he is only interested in mares who are "willing and experienced enough to know what they want." [[spoiler:He broke this rule once in the past, with Trixie Lulamoon, because TrueLoveIsExceptional, and destroyed their developing friendship, something he greatly regrets]]. He also refuses to use his position as a theatrical impresario to exploit aspiring female performers.
* In ''Fanfic/FriendshipIsMagicalGirls'', Spike's particular vice-based ninja magic is powered by lust, which he fuels with perverted acts. However, despite this he's still a decent person, and has the utmost respect for the girls.
* ''FanFic/MyLesbianLifeWithMonsterGirlsMonsterYurisume'': A rare female example. Yuisu is often prone to spacing out and drooling when it comes to beautiful women, but is able to control herself.
* BJ completely subverts this in ''Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}}'', if only because he CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest. But in the sequels, with the RelationshipUpgrade confirmed, he's a one-woman man version of this - mostly to tease her.
* Mack from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' fanfic, ''Fanfic/IllMeetYouOnRoute62'', is portrayed as one. Though he's not as perverted as [[AllMenArePerverts some of the other guys in the story]], he can still be flirty when he wants to. Regardless, Mack still respects women and the thought of women selling themselves out for men disgusts him.

[[folder:Film -- Animation]]
%%* Phil, Disney/{{Hercules}}' mentor.
* Prince Naveen from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. Despite his well-known reputation as a womanizer, he seems to respect women for the most part.

[[folder:Film -- Live Action]]
* Captaun Phoebus in the 1923 version of ''Film/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' is still presented as a womanizer, but cares about Esmeralds's safety in contrast to his un-chivalrous book counterpart.
* Lester Burnham from ''Film/AmericanBeauty''. He spends the movie obsessing over a FilleFatale girl who is the same age as his daughter. When he actually gets a chance with her, he stops once he finds out [[spoiler:she's actually a virgin, and her suggestions of sexual prowess were made up]].
* Luigi in ''Film/AnotherTimeAnotherPlace'' is a bit of a graceless sleazebag, but at least he does take Janie's [[spoiler:initial]] rejections gracefully and he doesn't browbeat her about it.
* Film/AustinPowers, despite some implied deviant sexual behavior, is still for the most part courteous toward the ladies he's trying to woo. He makes outrageous passes at Vanessa, but when she tries to kiss him, he refuses because she's drunk. Back in the sixties, he was clearly attracted to Vanessa's mother, but never made a move on her because he was married. Considering [[Film/JamesBond who he's a parody of]], this is to be expected.
%%* ''Film/BackToTheFuture'': George [=McFly=].
* Creator/PeterSellers in ''The Bobo'' plays a wandering musician who agrees to a wager where he can get a theater engagement if he beds the local gold digger (Britt Ekland) within three days - but resists taking advantage of her when she gets drunk. Possibly averted as the deal specified his being in her apartment one hour with the lights out, and they were far off in another location.
* Howard Stark in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. He may be a playboy inventor (much like [[Film/IronMan his son]]) but he is respectful to coworker Peggy and he later explains to Steve what he meant by having "fondue" with her (he was essentially asking Peggy that after a mission if she wanted to go out and eat with him. Steve had never heard of fondue before, and assumed it was a sexual euphemism.)
* Theater impresario Henri Danglard in ''Film/FrenchCancan''. He goes through starlets/creative muses/lovers like Kleenex, but whatever woman he's with at the time he treats like gold.
* Peter Venkman from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}''. Despite relentlessly pursuing Dana (often to her annoyance), he refuses to take advantage of her even when presented with the opportunity.
* ''Film/JamesBond'': Creator/PierceBrosnan's Bond is just as prone to bawdy innuendos and sleeping around as the other incarnations. The big difference is that he genuinely cares about the women in his life, and does everything he can to keep them safe. He is affectionate towards Natalya, Paris got "too close for comfort," he is unusually protective of Wai Lin even before they officially become allies, he falls in love with Elektra, and his [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x390eac sheer panic (and later relief)]] when he attempts to resuscitate Jinx proves that she's not just a notch on his bedpost.
* Harry Lockhart in ''Film/KissKissBangBang'': although he appears to spend a lot of time thinking about Harmony in a sexual way, he is quick to become upset when she ''isn't'' upset over the idea of being groped in her sleep.
* James Lennox in ''Film/MenWithBrooms'', the kind of classy guy who brings a "[[TheOldestProfession Rent-A-Girlfriend]]" to a funeral of a beloved friend, [[AboveTheInfluence refuses to take advantage of Amy]] when she makes a drunken rebound attempt at him. He even goes on to [[WhatTheHellHero berate Chris]] for unintentionally causing Amy to fall OffTheWagon.
* Jim Kirk in the reboot ''Film/StarTrek'' [[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness franchise]] may flirt with any women he sees but he is never overly pushy with them. He also treats Uhura, Spock's girlfriend, respectfully and even apologizes to her when there was a moment he was frustrated with Spock.
* ''Film/StrokerAce'': Stroker starts off as a womanizer who doesn't even believe in the word 'virgin'. He spends the entire movie finding a way to bed [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Pembrook]] and settles on getting her drunk. However, he ultimately turns into a chivalrous pervert when Pembrook passes out in his hotel room. He undresses her, and he can be seen resisting his urges until he decides to just leave her alone. He confesses the next morning that nothing happened after she passed out.
* In ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', Mikey has April on his mind in pretty much every non-action scene where they interact. He even apologizes for how creepy his "We will find you" line sounded when she first meets them.
* Van in ''Film/VanWilder''. He flirts mercilessly with love-interest Gwen but he never actually makes a pass at her since he knows she has a boyfriend, even though the guy is a complete Jerkass. He does the same thing with Kaitlin in ''Freshman Year''.
* Monty in ''Film/{{Waiting}}'' actively pursues the hostess. He backs out at the last minute because she's roughly a week shy of being eighteen. However, he instructs her to tell everyone that he totally nailed her. You know, for his image. Of course, this is part of his CharacterDevelopment, as he had ''zero'' hangups with violating the JailBaitWait.
* Subverted by Sam Lombardo in ''Film/WildThings''. [[spoiler:Although it seems like he's upset at Ray killing Kelly on moral grounds, it's clear that he's really only concerned about a potential SpannerInTheWorks wrecking the plan. He has no compunctions about exploiting Kelly's love for him for sex and money, and intends to frame her for what will probably be a life sentence for Suzie's murder.]]
* Randy "The Ram" Robinson from ''Film/TheWrestler'' is a regular patron at a sleazy strip club. But he treats his favorite stripper, Cassidy, like a real person rather than a piece of meat, even going as far as to defend her when some other patrons make insulting remarks to her.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** ''Film/X2XMenUnited'': Iceman adores Rogue, and although he's supposed to be looking the other way, he can't resist taking a peek at her while she's changing into his mother's old clothes.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
*** Charles Xavier boldly hits on co-eds, but when his latest target for conquest sincerely needs help, he's all business.
*** Sean Cassidy is introduced flirting with a girl, who seems to find him comical more than anything else. He also wolf-whistles at Angel.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'':
*** [[http://www.allocine.fr/article/fichearticle_gen_carticle=18650173.html In this French interview]], Creator/JamesMcAvoy discloses Xavier's lust and adoration for Moira.
---->"Definitely he has... the hots for her! ''(laughs)'' She gives new meaning to his life, undoubtedly. [...] Charles is madly in love with Moira and he will do everything to protect her."
*** Professor X may even have a bit of competition because Quicksilver blows a couple of kisses at Moira and holds her in a traditional dance pose before rescuing her from an explosion. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFMyEOuTfxY In this commercial,]] Peter Maximoff ''sniffs the hair'' of the young woman he's (very much) interested in, and he performs elaborate gestures just so that she can better enjoy the romantic movie she's watching.
* Downplayed with Eggsy from ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', as should be expected from a Bond-in-training: He's not an inappropriate flirt, but he had no problem having RescueSex with a woman he hardly knows — although, to be fair, he only asked for a kiss; the rest was her initiative.


* The literary Literature/JamesBond is one of these in spades. Movie Bond, however, is more of a cad.
* Nicholas van Rijn of Creator/PoulAnderson's ''Literature/PolesotechnicLeague'' stories. If you are an attractive woman, expect to have him make constant references to your looks as well as many passes. But should danger appear, you couldn't have anyone better at your side.
* In the same mould, Heslet Quillan from Creator/JamesHSchmitz's ''Literature/FederationOfTheHub'' series takes instant advantage of the situation when the {{naked|PeopleAreFunny}} ActionGirl falls into his arms--but never hesitates when a lady needs his help.
* Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian. Perhaps most notably in "Literature/TheSlitheringShadow" where Conan is actually embarrassed at the way TheVamp [[TheGlomp glomped]] onto him, because his slave girl Natala is watching, even though "He was no more monogamous in his nature than the average soldier of fortune"
* Count Giacomo [[TheCasanova Casanunda]], ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'''s his business card reads in full as "World's 2nd Greatest Lover. Finest Swordsman. Outrageous Liar. Soldier of Fortune. Stepladders Repaired." (as for the "second greatest lover bit" as he says "I try harder"). A charming romantic scoundrel like his real-world namesake, he never mistreats a lady he has taken an interest in, even during his try at being a highwayman, and he's decidedly a lover rather than a fighter. He was even willing to stand up against TheFairFolk to defend Nanny Ogg (who didn't really need defending, but that's besides the point).
** Cohen the Barbarian may count also. At one point there's a discussion between several other characters where one of them says that barbarians like Cohen pillage and rape and another one says something like "Well, pillaging, certainly; raping ... no. ''Ravishing,'' possibly." The first character asks what's the difference, and the second says "For one thing, I don't believe that there were any actual ''complaints''."
* Quite a few DeadpanSnarker detectives. Most notably Creator/RaymondChandler's Literature/PhilipMarlowe and Creator/DashiellHammett's [[Literature/TheMalteseFalcon Sam Spade]]. Both of whom have been played by Creator/HumphreyBogart.
* Possibly, Travis [=McGee=], in John Macdonald's novels. Bitter, but utterly a believer in the healing power of good sex, occasionally waxing highly poetic about it. He admits he sleeps with women to make them feel better; he's quieter about the healing effect it has on him as well, being not inclined to discuss his dark past.
** Averted in ''Pale Gray for Guilt''; it's his truly chivalrous and chaste behavior towards Janine Bannon [[spoiler:the widow of an old and dear friend]] that finally reveals to her the KnightInSourArmor her husband liked so well.
* Dr. Tachyon of ''Literature/WildCards''. Consider: [[spoiler:Roulette tries to kill him; he heals her and sends her off to rebuild her life.]]
* In Creator/SandyMitchell's ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novels, Cain alludes his numerous amorous adventures (at least, prior to meeting Amberley Vail), but never to getting into trouble as a consequence, and the one occasion where he meets up again with an old flame she is perfectly happy to see him.
* Creator/JohnRingo's ''Literature/{{Ghost}}'' gives us a chivalrous ''rapist'' as the protagonist. Say it with me... [[http://hradzka.livejournal.com/194753.html OH JOHN RINGO NO]].
* Lucien de Barenton, Count de Chretien, in Creator/VondaNMcIntyre's ''The Moon and the Sun''. A sharp-witted, cosmopolitan seventeenth-century aristocrat with a colorful love life, who respects all of his girlfriends as people [[spoiler: and eventually [[LadykillerInLove settles down with the heroine.]] ]]
* Fitz Kreiner from the ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' novels. He at one point has three girlfriends at the same time, but other than that is nothing but sweet and lovely to all of them. He once justified deflowering a naive [[TheIngenue ingenue]] with the fact that his mum always told him that if someone is sad, you should try to cheer them up. He starts off as more of a [[HandsomeLech Fairly Attractive Lech]], though. One novel features this scene, which gives one the impression he's an intentional example of this trope:
-->Without hesitation Fitz stepped forward and cracked Robin on the jaw with a straight punch which [[NonActionGuy probably hurt him more than its victim.]]\\
Robin staggered backwards, looking shocked.\\
Fitz rubbed his aching knuckles. ‘If there’s one thing I can't stand it’s bullies. Especially people who bully women.’
* Literature/JudgeDee's faithful lieutenant Ma Joong is always ready to take his pleasure, but when he rescues a mistreated prostitute - who turns out to be from his own village - he is the soul of chivalry. Eventually he buys her out so she can marry the young man she's in love with.
* A favourite of Creator/ChristopherPike's in his novels: the ''Final Friends'' series (Bubba); ''Monster'' (Kevin); ''Literature/{{Witch}}'' (Randy); ''The Eternal Enemy'' (Ed).
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** Carlos Ramirez is the resident TheCasanova, but is unfailingly polite to all women. [[spoiler:He's also a virgin,]] to the amusement of everyone present.
** Harry Dresden has a self proclaimed chivalrous streak that gets him into trouble often enough, but it doesn't extend to [[FanService looking away]]... When Harry encounters a beautiful woman, he often spends an inordinate amount of time describing them. The short stories in the series told from other characters' viewpoints, as well as other books written by Creator/JimButcher, lack these overly detailed descriptions, giving a subtle but clever indicator as to what Harry's thinking of a lot. Some fans have even noted that said descriptions become much less vivid during the periods in Harry's life when he's getting laid regularly.
* ''Literature/AThreadOfGrace'': Renzo Leoni has elements of this. His ability to play this role allows him to get close to the Nazis who are in charge of his area of Italy.
* Captain Bel Thorne of the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga''. Thorne was a Betan hermaphrodite, but tended to act more male than female, most of the time, although the balance generally depended on the known preferences of who it[[note]]its preferred pronoun[[/note]] was trying to seduce. However when asked to smuggle an attractive young refugee away from a hostile force it refused most of the money, just keeping one token note to make it a legal contract. Thorne also once passed up a chance to seduce its commanding officer's clone brother by blackmailing young Mark into submitting lest Mark blow his cover. It already knew it wasn't really Miles it was seducing, knew Mark was a scared teenager trying to impersonate a man in his twenties, and refrained from either exposing Mark or... exposing Mark.
* Eon in the ''Literature/BelisariusSeries'' is rather like this. As a teenager he played around with the palace staff as well as his two concubines whom he was quite fond of, before he married. Interestingly when asked by the title character to play a role as a spectacularly abusive pervert for his cover in a covert op he is rather repulsed. Before Eon's coronation the elders of his kingdom question all the palace staff on his treatment of them on the assumption that [[NiceToTheWaiter this would indicate how he might treat his people]].
* In ''A Whiff of Death'' (a.k.a. ''The Death Dealers''), the minor character Dr. Foster seems to be constantly flirting with any female, but has never been seen or heard doing anything inappropriate; he's simply very gregarious.
* Genderswapped with the Princess Lylia in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''; though it's heavier on the "Chivalrous" side, she's intensely interested in sex and rather mischievous about it. Her female cousins want her one male cousin, Cullen, to be a [[ProperLady Proper Young Man]], holding still, keeping his legs together, being pure and safe and brainless, but she "corrupts" him by sneaking him wine, cigars, [[AllGirlsLikePonies visits to horses]], and pornographic tintypes. As a result he's something of a LovableSexManiac. They have [[PracticeKiss kissed for practice]] but are LikeBrotherAndSister and have vowed that whoever has sex first, tell the other ''everything''. She is ''very'' interested in the beautiful [[NonActionGuy Jerin]].
* DoubleSubversion in ''Literature/OfFearAndFaith'' with Aiden. He plays the part of the charming and likeable ladies' man and is very nice to the women he flirts with, but his narration makes it clear that it's an act and he doesn't really care about them at all. And then [[LadykillerInLove he meets Lilac]] and he's pretty much the reverse of the above, trying to act aloof and disaffected despite caring about her a great deal (much to his chagrin).
* [[Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt Simona Ahrnstedt's]] male protagonists have a tendency to be this. They might have had affairs with many different women, and alas, they can be jerks too. But they mostly try to show women proper respect. And when it really matters, they will show a strong chivalrous streak.
* ''Literature/PleaseDontTellMyParentsImASupervillain'': Ray, after he gains superpowers. Penny admits to liking his "leering charm".
* ''Literature/TheYearOfTheRat'': Alk Haskil is an example. As his {{Love Interest|s}} states, "ANY talk of his ends with some horrid perversion", and she is positive she can sense his immoral thoughts about her. But he never fights a woman, never rapes one, and always rushes to help any DamselInDistress he meets.
* In ''[[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars The Chessmen of Mars]]'', the creepy old taxidermist I-Gos tries to rape Tara, but fails. Later, after learning that Gahan loves Tara, and after seeing how brave and honorable Gahan is, I-Gos helps him to rescue her from the tyrant O-Tar.
* Razza from ''Literature/DontCallMeIshmael'' joins the debate team to meet girls at debates, flirts with nearly every girl he meets and fancies himself a casanova, but he is devoted to his girlfriend Sally and perfectly willing to wait until she wants to have sex.
* Sam Aylward of ''Literature/TheWhiteCompany'' is a shameless rake, with three girlfriends in various places on the go at once, and will chase anything in a skirt in between - but the maid has to be willing and Sam knows the difference between 'coy' and 'no'. In the latter case he tips his steel cap and moves on. Insult or threaten a woman in his presence, and you die.
* The Wyrm of Erch from ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'' doesn't hide his interest in any pretty woman who happens to pass by. He never forces himself on them and is extremely nice and caring for his (many, many) lovers.

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Tyrion Lannister's reputation across Westeros for his drinking and whoring is such that the brothel in Winterfell awaits his arrival with great enthusiasm. However he almost always treats women with great respect (his sister excluded, though that is quite another matter), and loathes to see them harmed or abused in any way. [[spoiler:When he and Sansa Stark are forced into a political marriage by his father, Tyrion can plainly see her reluctance to go through with consummating the relationship. Even though he's extremely drunk, he still stops her from undressing and tells her that he won't bed her until she actually wants him to, even if that means never.]]
** Grey Worm is entranced by nude Missandei, but since he's a eunuch it is much more about intimacy than sex.
** Daario forgoes prostitutes and rape because he prefers making women ''want'' to fuck him. Salladhor Saan also refuses to rape anyone, but has no issues cavorting with prostitutes.
* ''Series/BostonLegal'': Alan Shore and [[Creator/WilliamShatner Denny Crane]]. "If you ever need anything, an ear, a shoulder ''[pause]'', an erection, I'm here."
%%* One could argue the case that Gene Hunt has taken a turn for this direction in ''Series/AshesToAshes''.
* G'Kar from ''Series/BabylonFive'' after some CharacterDevelopment. The ending of the series [[FridgeLogic implies]] that his patience paid off. His last appearance in the series in broadcast order implies he got to get jiggy with Lyta Alexander, who five years earlier had replied to his proposition with something along the lines of "not even if you were the last male in the Universe, and the salvation of the Universe dependent on it." Of course, in between he'd become much less of a JerkAss and she'd done some BoldlyComing with Kosh, at least in heavy subtext.
* ''Series/{{Skins}}'': One of Cook's [[PetTheDog better moments]] comes when [[spoiler:Naomi suddenly changes her mind about having sex with him and he immediately accepts it.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Naomi''']]: You're not even going to try and convince me? Most guys would.
-->'''Cook''': Most guys aren't me, babe.
%%* 'Dolly' from ''{{Bonekickers}}''.
* Xander from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The one time he had any success with Buffy, his {{Love Interest|s}} in the early seasons, he turned her down because [[AboveTheInfluence he realized that she was under the influence of magic]].
** Sid the Dummy in the first season and other appearances, keeps flirting and throwing lewd remarks to Buffy, but he always lends a hand to help the gang, even risking himself.
* Joey from ''Series/{{Friends}}'', at least when it comes to the members of his group of friends. He hits on them on numerous occasions and tries several ploys to either see them naked or see them kiss each other, but when everyone believes Phoebe's been in a porno movie, Joey is the only member of the gang who refuses to watch it. He also freaks out quite a bit when Rachel calls his bluff and actually offers to sleep with him.
** Joey is so good to his female friends, that upon hearing Phoebe was pregnant, he goes out to beat up the supposed father... then comes back and proposes to Phoebe so she won't be alone. Later when he finds Rachel is the one who is actually pregnant, he promptly proposes to her too.
** In one episode, when a drunken Rachel responds favorably to his "How you doin'?" line, he tells Ross not to let her drink any more.
* Jack Harkness, from ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''. Forget ''ladies,'' he's after [[AnythingThatMoves the population of every galaxy]]. He is ''introduced'' in ''Doctor Who'' ogling an endangered Rose Tyler's behind through a pair of binoculars. True to the "chivalrous" part, he immediately goes to rescue her. [[RefugeInAudacity And slaps the other soldier coming to ask him what he was doing on the bum]], commenting that his was nice too. In a notable subversion of the trope, he's extremely committed when he's actually dating someone who's monogamous. He also refuses to do anyone with anyone else who's in a monogamous relationship -- although all his friends keep randomly kissing him.
** Also of ''Doctor Who'', Vislor Turlough also applies to a good degree.
* Admiral Albert "Al" Calavicci from ''Series/QuantumLeap''. Lost his virginity at an age where most boys were still putting lizards in girl's lunchboxes. "I have been absolutely in love with every woman I have ever slept with — at ''that'' moment in time." He's easily DistractedByTheSexy and takes advantage of being a VirtualGhost to [[PowerPerversionPotential peep to his heart's content]]. But he never stopped loving his first wife who remarried when it looked like he was killed in Vietnam, and the only thing he won't do for a woman he's involved with is keep it in his pants. And the surest way to press his [[BerserkButton button]] is to harm or belittle a woman. Don Juan needs to go knight this guy RFN.
%%* Napoleon Solo in ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE''.
* ''Series/HappyDays'': The Fonz. His [[RuleOfCool Cool factor]] kept him from being as perverted as many on this list, but as one episode showed, going even one day without ''l'amour'' was a severe trial to him. It also meant he rarely had to actually pursue a woman, unless the plot called for it.
* Jay from ''Series/TheInbetweeners'' is perpetually [[CasanovaWannabe lying, in revoltingly graphic detail, about all the girls he has apparently had sex with even though he's obviously a virgin]], and generally talks as though he thinks of women solely as sex objects. In one episode, though, he actually gets into a relationship, and has utter respect for his girlfriend's sexual boundaries and is a pretty good boyfriend until he gets some bad advice from his father, who seems to believe that StalkingIsLove.
* Dennis from ''Series/JustShootMe'' has moments of this towards Maya. A good example is the episode "Miss Pretty", where he is secretly the magazine's new advice columnist. When Maya asks for an interview, Dennis gets a friend of his (a scuzzbag who specializes in bogus lawsuits) to pose as the columnist. But when Maya starts dating him, Dennis becomes concerned, and eventually confesses to being Miss Pretty rather than have her go out with someone more depraved than he is.
* Francis Bryan in ''Series/TheTudors'' showed signs of this during his first episode. He bluntly asked a woman to be his mistress and offered her an expensive necklace. He then told her that if she refused, he would bother her no more.
* Richard Series/{{Castle}} fits this to a T. [[TheCharmer He loves the ladies]] and will quite happily drop {{Double Entendre}}s like nobody's business, but in one episode he befriends a call girl who is helping them solve a case. [[spoiler:She comes to his house crying, with a black eye, and even when she tries to kiss him he refuses and insists on getting her medical attention.]]
%%* Tony, the Canteen Manager from the sitcom ''Series/{{Dinnerladies}}''.
* The anti-heroic Prince Justin Greystone from ''Series/WizardsAndWarriors''. He occasionally tears himself away from his wine and women to reluctantly do something noble.
* Buck Wilmington from ''Series/TheMagnificentSeven'' TV series. Hits on/sleeps with every woman he meets but treats them all with respect. He attributes this to the fact he was raised in a brothel but his mother taught him to treat every woman like a lady.
* Tristan, from ''Series/AllCreaturesGreatAndSmall'', seemingly has a different nurse on his arm every week, but he also seems to treat them all beautifully.
* Tony [=DiNozzo=] from ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. He started out as a regular TheCasanova, hitting on every skirt he could find, and even after six seasons of character development is still interested, but he would never even think of hurting a woman. And his father is one as well.
* Hank Moody of ''Series/{{Californication}}'' could qualify. While he sleeps with almost every woman he meets (including ones who hate him), he is usually the first to assault (read: knock out) anyone who either inappropriately insults a woman or mistreats them somehow.
* James T. Kirk from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. In fact, for one episode, Spock and [=McCoy=] [[SpottingTheThread were clued in]] that something wasn't right with their captain (Kirk's jilted ex-lover was inhabiting his body), despite having no physical proof, because the fake captain had [[WouldntHitAGirl struck a woman]] (who the real Kirk was inhabiting).
* Jack Tripper from ''Series/ThreesCompany''. He's had ''numerous'' [[GirlOfTheWeek Girls Of The Week]] and never passes an opportunity to get a kiss from either or both of his two female roommates, but he never actually goes any farther than that with his roommates and goes steady with his latest girlfriend in the series finale.
* Captain Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce from ''Series/{{MASH}}'', DependingOnTheWriter. For the most part he sleeps around, but has defined morals; he appreciates the company of women for their own sake and he is contrasted with actual perverts in the form of 50s-style chauvinists, whom he opposes and he doesn't get along with the 50s masculine persona. In one oddly OutOfCharacter episode where they believe the war is about to end he's shown having three girlfriends, each of whom apparently believes she's in a serious, exclusive relationship with him. When they want to make plans for after the war, like a chickenshit he tells them he's been married all along.
* Sam Axe from ''Series/BurnNotice''. He's certainly TheCasanova and (for the first two seasons, at least) had a collection of sugar mamas, so we know he's appreciative of the ladies. But should you actually want to harm one? [[BewareTheNiceOnes Run]]. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Just]] run.
* Dean Winchester from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. He flirts with most of the women he meets, but when we see him with Cassie, we find out that he really loved her, but she didn't believe him when he told her what he did for a living, breaking his heart as she left. And he isn't exactly thrilled when he discovers that his pal Castiel plans to hand a girl named Anna (a FallenAngel whom Dean had slept with) over to the angels.
* Jim Longworth from ''Series/TheGlades'' is constantly flirting with the married Callie but doesn't pressure her into cheating on her convict husband. When he prevented an imminent assault on her by a rapist breaking into her house, he didn't tell her so she wouldn't feel she owed him.
* Don Draper of ''Series/MadMen'' is TheCasanova ''par excellence'', to the point where it [[YourCheatingHeart costs him his marriage]] (combined with his pathological addiction to lying). However, he has serious problems with other men being crude and creepy around women (whatever he might be, he is never crude or creepy), particularly in the office; as he [[LampshadeHanging says to Peggy]], "I have rules" about this sort of thing. When he breaks these rules and drunkenly seduces his secretary Allison in Season 4, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness it's used as an indication of how far he has fallen]].
* Damien Scott of ''Series/StrikeBack'' is a regular TheCasanova but is usually honest with the women he sleeps with or at least as honest as being a secret government operative allows him to. When he is held captive together with a female hostage he quickly seduces her. However, once they are rescued he declines to have sex with her because he realizes that it would be taking advantage of her vulnerable emotional state.
* Mel Frohike of ''Series/TheXFiles'' (and later spinoff ''Series/TheLoneGunmen'') is a short, squat, balding man with a PornStash that rivals Mulder's. His reaction to Scully was to openly oogle her and make comment on how attractive she was. However, he showed up at Scully's hospital room with flowers, he kept vigil on her while Mulder was hunting down her attackers, and he saved her from a hoard of randy men who were shamelessly taking an advantage of her drugged-and-turned-to-a-bimbo state. When it comes to the Gunmen's own cases, he's fiercely protective of women unless he thinks they're pulling a WoundedGazelleGambit.
* ''Series/TheLegendOfWilliamTell'': Will does like his ladies. This dropped off towards the end of the series. Xax also likes the women, but [[BatheHerAndBringHerToMe not quite so chivalrously.]]
* ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati'': When Johnny needs a temporary place to live, Bailey invites him to stay at her place, as a favor to a friend. When he suspects the worst in getting a mandatory vacation, she puts a positive spin on it, and tells him to take advantage of his situation. He takes that cue to set up a romantic evening with her, but when she storms in furious over their coworkers jumping to conclusions about their staying together, he promptly drops the idea - then indignantly calls them out on it the next day.
%% * Barney Stinson from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' towards Robin and Lily.
%%% Zero-context examples are not allowed.
* Aramis in ''Series/TheMusketeers''. He will flirt with any pretty lady he sees but is always polite and respectful towards them, never taking advantage of them and genuinely falls in love with some, including [[spoiler: Queen Anne.]] This facet of his character gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the proto-feminist character, Comtesse De Larroque. "You are a contradiction Monsieur Aramis, a soldier who preaches love and a famous libertine who cherishes women."
* Jack Stiles in ''Series/JackOfAllTrades''. Understandable, considering he's played by Creator/BruceCampbell. He's constantly hitting on his partner Emilia Rothschild, despite her insistence that she's not interested, as well as every other attractive woman who comes across his path (including UsefulNotes/CatherineTheGreat). In fact, his assignment to Pulau-Pulau is partly due to him sleeping with UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson's niece, whom he'd been sent to rescue. However, he will never force himself on any woman nor will he stand idly by while a woman is being abused, usually donning his Daring Dragoon outfit. Additionally, while he's clearly attracted to Emilia, he will not ruin their relationship and partnership by taking advantage of her while she's under influence. A memorable scene involves him tricking an attractive undergarments seller to model for him, claiming that he's picking out an intimate gift for his wife for their anniversary. He does end up buying one of them at the end of the episode... as a wrapper for the real, much more romantic, gift.
* Neal Caffrey from ''Series/WhiteCollar'' flirts with every woman he meets, [[TheCasanova usually successfully]], but he always cares about the women he sleeps with on a surprisingly deep level, as well as having a lot of respect for the women he has no romantic or sexual involvement with or interest in. Kate, Alex, Sara, Elizabeth, June, Ellen, Rebecca, Diana - he'd go to the ends of the earth to ensure their safety. [[spoiler:too bad it didn't work for two of them, and one of them was manipulating him the entire time.]]
* Johnson and Pal in ''Series/SzeUTonight'', although this trope is played up more with Pal.
* Both Autolycus and Joxer from ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''. Both leer at scantily-clad women quite openly, and yet in spite of their {{Jerkass}} tendencies, they both possess [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a heart of gold]], being two of Xena's more loyal friends, and often acting for the greater good (even if Autolycus would never admit it).

* Mr. DNA from Music/{{Devo}}'s ''Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA'' is an "Altruistic Pervert." While not explained further in the song, the connotations seem to indicate a chivalrous pervert.
* A trend in 21st century rnb/rap songs is that a rapper will be rapping about a woman he saw in a club who he thinks is perfect and who he'll always treat right. This is popular enough to be the subject of most mainstream rnb these days.
** David Guetta and Akon's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9hazmsUxrM Sexy Chick/Bitch]] is one of the better examples, where the singer explicitly states "I'm trying to find the words to describe this girl without being disrespectful."

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* WWE commentator Wrestling/{{Jerry| Lawler}} "The King" Lawler is this in spades. He spends much of the Diva matches talking about the female wrestlers' "puppies" and other assets, but when one of them gets hurt, he's always the first one up to help, sometimes getting himself badly beaten when he tries to rescue a Diva in distress from a monster heel.
* When [[Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels Curry Man]] and Shark Boy burst into the knockouts locker room demanding Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople return [=SoCal=] Val's ring, Shark Boy's plan was to simply beat up Wrestling/AngelinaLove and go through her stuff till they found it, but Curry Man insists on being diplomatic, but also insisted on Angelina going on a date with him.

* Norman of ''Theatre/TheNormanConquests'' by Alan Ayckbourn.
* The Theatre/MrsHawking play series: Nathaniel's older brother, Justin Hawking. It's so reliable that the team ends up using that fact to lay a trap for a target.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* Winfield from ''[[VideoGame/AgarestSenki Agarest: Generations of War]]'' is this, across all the Generations. It becomes more apparent in the Second Generation, when his character is given more limelight - notably, [[spoiler: hitting on Sharona, with Ellis giving the aside that he could use some slapping around]]. Jainus from ''Agarest Senki 2'' hits on every attractive woman in sight but at least knows where to draw the line and immediately backs off if he makes the girls uncomfortable.
* Jimmy Hopkins from ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'', while he can be a jerk and a [[KavorkaMan player]], he is always kind when it comes to a ''truly'' distraught woman. Maybe his motives are questionable, but still, he's a good person deep down.
* In ''VideoGame/StarFox'', Panther Caroso may be TheCasanova, but he still cares about who he woos, making him this.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has Crassius Curio, a quest-giver and Councilor of [[TheClan Great House]] [[ProudMerchantRace Hlaalu]]. Insists on calling the PC things like "dumpling" or "pumpkin pie," [[DepravedBisexual no matter the gender]], and his first order is to see you naked. However, it's largely implied nothing ''really'' happens... and in any case, he's one of the few House Hlaalu councilors [[HonestCorporateExecutive above the corruption]] of the [[TheSyndicate Camonna Tong]] and is [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure actively working]] to make Morrowind a better place. Curio also famously wrote a light pornographic play titled "The Lusty Argonian Maid", where the main characters are an AuthorAvatar named [[HerCodeNameWasMarySue Crantius Colto]] and a female Argonian named Lifts-Her-Tail. Argonians are LizardFolk. Curio's tastes apparently [[AnythingThatMoves cross species boundaries]] as well. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' introduces an equally filthy sequel, as well as a GenderFlipped version for the ladies, "The Sultry Argonian Bard".
* Ready? Here comes the list of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' poster boys for this trope:
** Desh in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII''. Gave us the famous quote: "Hey, we have a ship! Now we can pick up girls from all over the world!". Makes an apparent [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]] soon after.
** Edge in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''. A prince who will fight like a wildcat to protect his people, but never misses an opportunity to get close to pretty ladies.
** Edgar from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. A king who tells little girls he'll marry them when they grow up... and spends his days working as a GadgeteerGenius to protect every last one of his subjects. He hits on Terra when Locke first brings her to Castle Figaro, but is also willing to put himself (not to mention his own kingdom) in great risk in order to protect her from TheEmpire.
-->'''Kefka''': A [[BlatantLies girl of no importance]] recently escaped us, and we heard that she found refuge here...
-->'''Edgar''': That's a tough one... You see, there're more girls here than grains of sand out there. I can't keep track of them all!
** Cloud in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is not automatically an example, but the game is set up to encourage the player to act like this, with other characters reacting appropriately. You can have him flirt with Jessie, flirt with Aeris, flirt with Tifa, flirt with Yuffie, [[GayBravado flirt with Barret]], flirt with a girl in a bee costume, check out girls on the beach, rub suntan lotion into the back of a FanserviceExtra, strike a pose and then ''run'' into a brothel shouting "Let's go!", peek through keyholes into other rooms at the brothel, and make a party out of himself and two of the girls (Barret: "Thought you'd do that.") You are also given the opportunity to mistreat the girls, but usually it's either jokes at their expense or misjudged negging. Whatever way you play him, he's extremely protective of the girls - even Yuffie, with whom he has a more argumentative relationship, he makes a point of comforting at times.
** Irvine in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. It's mostly an act, at times even bordering on HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday -practically the first thing that he does upon meeting the team is to suggest a party composition of himself and two of the girls, but as the plot unfolds it becomes clear that he's actually still hopelessly infatuated with his childhood crush and his biggest concern is looking out for his friends.
** Zidane in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' is practically the poster boy for the series alongside Edgar. He actually has "Protect Girls" as a support skill which lets him intercept attacks on women, and is constantly flirting with females throughout the game. He also subverts CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest, as he shamelessly makes passes at Garnet the entire game, though he backs off slightly when he realizes he's actually in love with her. There's also an instance when he touches Garnet's butt by accident, and his immediate response is remarking how soft it is.
*** ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' reveals that not even gods and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s are off-limits to him, as his battle quote to the Cloud of Darkness is "You are impressive, [[MsFanservice in more ways than one]]", and when Cosmos appears before him he instantly replies "Today's not a good day for a date".
** If we're putting all the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' examples together, add political mastermind Al-Cid Margrace ([[NamesTheSame NOT Cid]]) in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' and, more obviously, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2''.
*** Similar to Zidane, Al-Cid in A2 has most of his combat abilities become stronger the more female units there are in your party on the battlefield. He also has one or two abilities which only work on females! To drive the point even further, when you fight him and his party of ladies before he joins your party, the law forbids you from harming females!
*** Balthier gets this characterization in the ''Final Fantasy XII'' manga, romancing Ashe before he even knows her name. The original game gave him shades of this, but it was rather subtle about it compared to the manga's interpretation.
* In the ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'' games: "I, Kuhn, cannot allow this atrocity to go any further!"
** He says this when a girl is wandering a dungeon alone - he wants to protect her. And then, he finds out [[HilarityEnsues her true age...]]
** Although he's a nice guy in general, and has a strong (albeit sometimes hidden) sense of justice, he is ''particularly'' nice to women. This backfires on him when he hits on a CrossPlayer in the sequel OVA.
*** Saburou is generally fairly obvious as to "her" real gender, which just made it even more of an EpicFail for Kuhn.
** Surprisingly, one of the characters he doesn't appear to be attracted to is [[BreakTheCutie Atoli]]. Of course, he's more of a ShipperOnDeck with her and Haseo, which might be why...
** Ironically, Kuhn is Tomonari Kasumi, Mai Minase's boyfriend from ''Liminality''. The audience gets the pleasure of seeing "the only serious girlfriend he ever had."
* It's practically a ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' tradition to have at least one of these in each game.
** Perhaps the best example: Sain the Paladin from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'' (the seventh one overall, [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros the first one to be released in the United States]]), who is GenreSavvy. He knows how knights in that particular genre of game pick up women, so he inserts a lot of stereotypically "knightly" phrases into his speech. Which would probably work, if anyone else in the game talked like that. He does a lot of stuff -- like trying a "heroic" pose with a lance in the middle of a fight, but in the process forgetting the TacticalRockPaperScissors and taking an axe to the face for his trouble -- that show how he's trying to be honorable and heroic but is really just perverted and hilarious. Sadly, [[ShooOutTheClowns he shows up less and less]] as the game gets DarkerAndEdgier, and notably has no plot-mandated lines after the DiscOneFinalBoss. Darn shame. So many good opportunities missed.
*** Despite this, he never had any support talks with his lord, stating a more professional relationship between him and Lyn. Also, he is one of the few guys who can distract a girl from her troubles in their supports (Priscilla's conflicted feelings for Raven, Fiora's SurvivorGuilt after losing her squad, Serra demanding vassalage as a part of her StepfordSmiler facade, Isadora's angst over her relationship with Harken).
*** It's worth emphasizing: Aside from [[HeterosexualLifePartners Kent]], Sain ''only'' has women in his support list!
*** Sain has no support talk with Lyn because she's already taken: His best friend Kent has a huge BodyguardCrush on her. So, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he steps aside]] [[MatchmakerCrush for his friend]], and openly tells him so in their supports. (Heck, Sain's dying quote is: "Lady Lyndis, I was... so happy...!") And then FridgeBrilliance kicks in: Sain fears that if he ever ''was'' alone with Lyn, he'd give in and declare his love for her, which in his mind could be [[LoveTriangle a potential betrayal]] [[BashBrothers against his closest buddy.]] He's a perv, but he's not stupid!
** See also Saul, who alternates between preaching and flirting with every women he sees. He even straight out tells Ellen, another priest, that he's loose and may do "undesirable things" to her, but she thinks he's better than that. (His other female supports, like Cecilia, tend to see through his religious charade easily though.) But when he gets serious, well, ''he does get serious'': if you promote him and make him face the SinisterMinister Oro, Saul is clearly PO'd to see a fellow clergy member playing the villain role, and tells him "You disgrace the Gods, and you '''will''' pay for that!".
** To a lesser extent, Forde from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' fitted this bill, but nowhere near the epic awesomeness that is Sain. He does flirt with Vanessa a bit and teases Kyle about his love life, but he's not ''too'' forward and is still dedicated to serving Ephraim.
** Or Bastian, from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn]]''. Add Shakespearian dialogue to the mix as well.
*** And Gatrie?
*** Heather from ''Radiant Dawn''. She flirts with several girls (Nephenee, Mia, Ilyana) and once stripped a guy who fancied her from all his gold, but her main motivation is her IllGirl mother whom she supports and loves very much.
** Also Alec from [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral the fourth]]. Though if he gets married, he sort of quits flirting for the sake of the wife. Doesn't stop him about complimenting women in general, though (as described with his last dialogue with Briggid, if paired).
--->'''Briggid''': What's Chalpy like?
--->'''Alec''': It's a country full of beautiful girls.
--->'''Briggid''': Alec! You better not try to double-time with me!
--->'''Alec''': Okay, okay, I know...
** Virion from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' qualifies, but errs more on the side of 'Chivalrous' rather than 'Pervert'. He's a shameless flirt who spouts reams of flowery compliments upon the ladies, often throwing in a proposal even if he's only just met them, and [[Radar/FireEmblemAwakening it's been repeatedly and strongly implied]] that [[ReallyGetsAround he sleeps around quite a bit]] (whether with maids or noblewomen). He actually has incredibly high standards for how a lady ought to be treated and will react with appropriate vengeance if he feels someone else has violated those terms. Not to mention, when he learns about a girl's boundaries, he will '''not''' step over them; i.e., when he learns that [[ShrinkingViolet Olivia]] is too shy to learn a duet dance from him, he ''goes to the other side of the room and teaches her from there''.
*** Unsurprisingly, he becomes quite offended and/or hurt (depending on who he's talking to) if anyone suggests his intentions are anything but honorable. (Which separates him from the [[HandsomeLech likable and cheery but-more-loose, bed-hopping]] Inigo, [[Film/ThePrincessBride no not that Inigo]]. And it's really HilariousInHindsight when you recall that [[spoiler: Virion '''is''' one of Inigo's potential fathers, should [[ShipperOnDeck you]] make him romance Inigo's future mother -- who ''happens'' to be the aforementioned Olivia]])
*** To a milder degree, there's [[TheAhnold Gregor]]. Quite a few of his supports with females involve him teasing them about having crushes on him, but he tries to serve as a matchmaker for Cordelia [[MatchmakerCrush despite his possible feelings for her]] and ''never'' forces the girls into anything they don't want to do. In his support with the Avatar, Gregor suggests ways for [[HoYay him]]/her to keep up his/her health... such as [[IntimateHealing sharing body heat with him in bed.]]
** Laslow from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is rather loose, flirty, and implied to sleep around [[CasanovaWannabe or at least try to]], but he's also capable of giving rather wise advice to his friends (specially his partner [[CutePsycho Peri]]) and holds UndyingLoyalty to his lord, Prince Xander. [[spoiler: That's because he '''is''' the aforementioned Inigo, only OlderAndWiser after becoming a DimensionalTraveler.]]
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', the mercenary Jesse is always fawning over women, but will go to any lengths to help a DamselInDistress. In fact, Celica recruits him from an infamous pirate's dungeon, since he got captured trying to save a girl named Est. Heck, when he changes class in a Shrine to [[HotGod Mila]], his promotion line sounds a LOT like ''[[DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu he's flirting with a goddess]]''!
*** Jesse also rescues Silque (with ''far'' more success) before the start of the game, as seen in a Memory Prism flashback. Afterwards, she notes he's much friendlier than she assumed at first. It suggests that his rescues are out of genuine concern, despite all his flirting.
* Johnny Sfondi from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' is the head of a crew of air pirates and a guy with LOTS of contacts in-story. He's a master of iaido and [[RuleOfCool a very stylish man]], with CoolShades and BadassLongcoat (as well as an enormous NiceHat [[Creator/NorioWakamoto and an epic voice]]). And he flirts with ''every'' female character that crosses his path. Those pirates, by the way? All girls. ''Young'' girls (and all of them are orphans, like Johnny himself, who gave them a home as he took them into his BadassCrew), with the exception of the cook. And then ''XX'' has him flirting with Bridget, who is [[GenderReveal revealed]] to be male. But alongside these little details, he's extremely badass as a fighter ''and'' much smarter than he looks, being able to keep up with people as powerful and competent as Ky and [[spoiler: Testament]], and while he's definitely not a law-abider, he's usually on the good side of the axis. ''And'' he cares for the safety of all the girls in his crew: should someone harm one of them, [[ActionDad Johnny]] [[PapaWolf will NOT be happy.]]
* Jansen Friedh from ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'' fits this trope to perfection. He joins your party with a woman on each arm and stone drunk and shortly afterwards falls hard for a {{Stripperiffic}} amnesia-ridden immortal queen, acting overprotective at every turn. HilarityEnsues.
** Ironic in that, by comparison, Jansen is the one that needs protecting, as said queen is arguably the best magic user in the game.
*** Jansen is a powerful mage in his own right: the real irony comes from the fact that, even ''before'' she gets her memory back, Ming is arguably more chivalrous and self-sacrificing than him.
* The ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' incarnation of the [[FanNickname Blue Bomber]] is a champion of justice who has a nasty habit of peeping at his adoptive sister in the bath.
* Gilder of ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' seems to be one of these. He certainly doesn't go after Fina or Aika, and has a sense of humour about it - even [[KarmaMeter if Vyse chooses to tell him]] that his motto comparing women and sunsets ("beautiful, but there will be another one tomorrow") is messed up when they first meet.
* [[LargeHam Bang Shishigami]] from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''.
** This also extends to his voice actor, Tsuyoshi Koyama, who straddles the line between this and LovableSexManiac, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWQ-MDBIBM0 as evidenced by his borderline sexual harassment of a staff girl at a convent.]] When Creator/AsamiImai got fed up with his antics and threatened that he'd have to pay a ¥5000 fine each time he touched the girl, [[ThreatBackfire he considered it a fair trade]].
** Kagura Mutsuki, one of the new characters for ''Chrono Phantasma'', takes this to a hilarious degree. Unlike Bang, however, [[ChickMagnet he's quite the stud]]. He usually flirts with many a playable character, carries another woman into the match and tossing her up before showtime (only for her to land on him one way or another after the fight), and makes overt passes at Makoto ([[PervertRevengeMode which gets him no small measure of pain]]). However, he sees the many ladies he interacts with as ''people''; he cares for their well-being and will suffer none who visit harm upon them. [[BlobMonster Arakune]] [[CurbStompBattle learned this the hard way]].
* Hyo Amano from ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'' flirts a lot with Hibiki, but also supports her when needed and shows concern over [[spoiler: her SuperpoweredEvilSide.]] Is it also awkward that both him and the aforementioned Kyoraku are voiced by Creator/AkioOhtsuka in Japanese?
%%* Leon from ''VideoGame/LuminousArc''.
%%* Ragnar from ''WildArmsXF''.
* Gannayev in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Mask of the Betrayer'' starts out as a jaded Casanova but a female player can turn him into a ChivalrousPervert instead, with a little care.
* Zevran Arainai plays around with this in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. While he is a ProfessionalKiller who wears TheCasanova facade, when genuinely pursuing a relationship with someone, he switches into this mode. He makes a point of only having sex on an amateur basis, though. Sleeping with the target only makes things complicated.
** And his DistaffCounterpart, Isabela the Pirate Queen. While a ''pirate'' with some extremely dubious morals and an endless source of innuendo, she believes sex should always be fun for everybody involved. Men, women, men dressed as women, vice versa - even all at once, if the participants are willing! She and Zevran have actually met (as well as ''met'') and they get along very well.
** In ''both'' cases, the option is there for a threesome (or more) with Zevran and/or Isabela, but it's your call (or the call of your other love interest) if it's acceptable. If not, they won't press the point. . . or if ''you'' do, flat-out say it's not going to happen since one person has a problem with it.
* Haken Browning from ''VideoGame/EndlessFrontier''. He has no qualms about giving people [[GagBoobs breast-themed nicknames]] and identifying women based on their rears, but he acts like a perfect gentleman to any woman who hasn't gotten on his bad side. Notably, the only time he brings up sex outright, he's politely offering it as payment for the use of a mermaid's ship. He never even makes any advances on his {{Love Interest|s}}, [[spoiler:and agrees to turn off the lights when she finally makes the first move. "I wouldn't want to embarrass a fine lady like yourself."]]
* Kyle from ''VideoGame/SuikodenV''. Note that he actually ''is'' a Knight.
* Ezio in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' was heading towards TheCasanova route before [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive the plot intervened]]. He still uses his charm to imply that he would be delighted to work closer with his female co-conspirators, but treats them with respect and can keep his mind on the job when necessary.
* Advocat of ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire'' flirts with students and makes blatant innuendos towards almost everyone, however he takes his role as teacher and protector very seriously and is highly honourable, especially compared to other demons.
* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** Junpei Iori in ''VideoGame/Persona3'' makes some pretty lecherous comments towards the girls on the team, but when push comes to shove, he's always got their back, as best seen in his ''Persona 3 Portable'' Social Link. After all, it's because of his kindness that Chidori Yoshino falls in love with him.
** Yosuke Hanamura from ''VideoGame/Persona4'' is also pretty perverted, given how he fanboys over [[IdolSinger Rise Kujikawa]] and at one point encourages the girls to wear swimsuits that ''he himself picked out''. Somehow, his eventual roommate Teddie is an even bigger perv who's constantly trying to "score" with women. Nonetheless, both of them are good friends and dependable teammates who are wholly invested in the team's goal of foiling the killer, and Yosuke in particular is absolutely disguised when he finds out just how misogynistic the killer is.
** Ryuji Sakamoto from ''VideoGame/Persona5'' is not above peeking on his closest female friend when he has the chance to, but he's a still kindhearted boy who always respects a woman's physical boundaries (and has nothing but hatred for those who don't).
** In general, the player characters from ''3'' onward can be this depending on your chosen actions and dialogue. In particular, ''5''[='s=] protagonist seems to be this no matter what; the whole reason he's on probation to begin with is because he tried to save a woman from being molested, but he's not above peeping on Ann Takamaki during cutscenes.
* Roy Campbell of ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' is shown to be this in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps''. Namely, Roy has attempted to give advice to his fellow soldiers that proves to be completely inappropriate for the soldiers' current situation despite the similar wording (For example, if a soldier attempts to call Campbell asking for advice in regards to distance between themselves and the enemy that is far enough away to not trigger an alert, and he ended up giving advice about personal space in regards to dating a girl.), as well as teased Snake about getting a girl like Elisa into joining his side as he thinks that she's about five years too young to be sexually mature. However, he has shown himself to have quite a bit of a restraint in regards to dating girls: For instance, he passed an opportunity to date a girl he had an attraction to for his brother's sake (they were both attracted to the same girl) and joined the Green Berets. This carries over to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', where he's in a relationship with the [[MayDecemberRomance much-younger]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Rose]]. [[spoiler: This is all a ruse to keep the Patriots from finding out that Rose's child is Raiden's, thus trying to prevent them from using Rose and the baby as leverage against him.]]
* ''VideoGame/DukeNukem'' has made it his life's mission to rescue [[DamselInDistress Distressed Damsels]] from hideous, alien behemoths. But that doesn't mean he won't ogle them once he's saved them.
** It's also worth pointing out that he's otherwise a total {{Jerkass}} ([[HeroicComedicSociopath one that is really funny]]). All of his dialogue is bragging about how awesome he is, he once wrote a book titled "Why I'm So Great", he throws money to strippers when any sane person would be evacuating them out of a war-zone, and he once vowed to a large alien monster to "rip your head off and shit down your neck" and ''followed through with it''. He's never so much as once insulted a woman though.
* Franchise/MortalKombat: [[TheFightingNarcissist Johnny Cage]] starts off story mode of part 9 as a straight-up CasanovaWannabe, hitting on a very exasperated Sonya Blade and not taking no for an answer. But right after he beats her up when she attacks him to shut him up, his expression is one of contrition and he makes it a point to defend her from Kano right after, which does earn him her gratitude. In the flashback of his chapter in Videogame/MortalKombatX, he's much more respectful, deferring to her lead and after defeating Shinnok, gently cradles her as she regains consciousness. The smile on his face when she [[YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious calls him "Johnny"]] says it all.
* Videogame/{{Tekken}}: The silver-haired demon himself, Lee Chaolan, has become a combination of this and LovableSexManiac over the course of the games, at least once he stopped caring about taking over the Mishima Zaibatsu. He was a bit too.... touchy-feely with Alisa in Tekken 6, prompting her to go into [[PervertRevengeMode self defense mode]] to fend him off. Despite this, he's extremely affable to both her and Lars throughout the story mode, very sincerely helpful to them, and repairs Alisa at the end. Anime/TekkenBloodVengeance sees him cheerfully offer shelter and protection to her and Xiaoyu when he discovers them at night; and 7 sees him calmly talk an Amnesiac Alisa down when she attacks him again, and reunite her with Lars, treating her kindly like a real person in the same way Lars does. ''Tag Tournament 2'' also shows him to be a fairly BenevolentBoss to his female employees, his constant hitting on his Fight Lab assistant notwithstanding, and he's surrounded only by several ''very'' willing women in his ending in ''5''.
* ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'':
** Loni from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'' flirts with several women, but won't lead them on and will back off (after trying to persuade them) if they're not interested. Being the ButtMonkey, he's not very successful in his endeavours, especially due to some of his [[StayInTheKitchen preferences]] [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon towards women]]. Once he lets go of this view and stops flirting with others so much, he becomes more successful in attracting [[HeroesWantRedheads Nanaly]].
** Zelos from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. It actually benefits him to talk to every female character he sees, as they'll give your party items if Zelos is in the lead.
** Raven from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' is this, flirting incessantly with the female party members (not that [[TheTease Judith]] does much to discourage him), while having a chivalrous side that becomes especially noticeable halfway through the game. [[spoiler:It also helps that he's actually a knight captain. Hell, even as ''Schwann'' he'll compliment Judith's beauty if she's in the party during the boss fight with him]].
*** Yuri, from the same, manages to be this ''and'' a CelibateHero. He's not afraid to appreciate Judith's figure and can, playfully, flirt with Estelle or Rita at times. Still, he shows no signs of being interested in romance.
** Spada Belforma from ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'', at least when it comes to Ange.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' gives us Emperor Peony, who is a hopeless, incorrigible flirt, going so far as to be just about the only person who actually encourages GoldDigger Anise and flirts back at her. However, he's all talk: rumor around the city has it that he's still pining for a love he was forced to give up on ten years ago (who just happens to be Jade's sister).
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria'' has Zaveid, a wind seraph who never, ''never'' stops flirting with every woman he meets, hitting relentlessly on party members in the post-fight VictoryPose skits. He also respects personal boundaries and backs off when things get serious. The prequel ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' strongly indicates that [[spoiler:it's helping him get over his lover who turns into a dragon and dies during ''Berseria'']], and that he just isn't ready for anything truly serious.
* Ernie Eaglebeak of ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. While he ReallyGetsAround as a rule, he does rescue a drugged Gretchen from a fraternity party. She attempts to jump his bones back at his place, but she passes out and Ernie leaves her be out of chivalry.
* From ''Franchise/MassEffect'', Joker. However the perversion is mostly implied with him, and doesn't come out too much in dialogue.
* Taiga in ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'' is clearly sex crazed and willing to employ some dubious means to obtain it, but when he comes across someone genuinely innocent like the ninja Kaede he is unwilling to exploit the situation too far despite obvious signs that he could.
* Benimaru Nikaido from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' is an excellent and good-looking fighter who's clearly VERY full of himself and willing to hit on almost all the pretty girls in his surroundings -- but he also chides his best friend Kyo on his borderline neglectful LongDistanceRelationship with his girlfriend Yuki, refuses to hit on a girl who's clearly too young for him [[{{Ephebophile}} at age 14]] (though he'll complain about it and [[OhCrap will be horrified]] when [[ComicallyMissingThePoint said girl overhears him]]), whines when Yuri sees through him but doesn't insist, treats Athena with the due respect owed to a fellow fighter when she tells him not to look down on her ("I see that you're a warrior more than a little girl anyway"), and when push comes to shove he's a very loyal friend and companion.
* Magoichi Saika from ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' is portrayed as a ladies' man and a shameless flirt, but is nothing but gracious towards women and flatly refuses to take advantage of Gracia Hosokawa, portrayed in the game as a teenage tagalong who idolizes and follows him around.
* Dekar in the ''VideoGame/{{Lufia}}'' series has a habit of flirting with just about every woman he comes across...and typically making a complete fool of himself in the process. Even in ''[[VideoGame/LufiaCurseOfTheSinistrals Curse of the Sinistrals]]'', when he's in an actual relationship with [[spoiler:fellow party member Tia]], he still entertains the thought of marrying every woman who's interested in him.
* The Adventure Sphere of ''VideoGame/Portal2'' spends about half his screentime hitting on Chell and commenting on how beautiful she is. However, he also sincerely wants to help her, and is obviously harmless, so his advances come off as endearing. It helps that he's one of the only characters that actually seems to sincerely ''like'' Chell.
* The Caster-class version of Cu Chulainn in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' is introduced jumping into a battle on your side to defend Mash's life and her honor... and then compliments her behind.
--->'''Player Character:''' [[LampshadeHanging Yep, he's a pervert.]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Youhei Sunohara from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''.
* The player character of the DatingSim ''VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari''. He shamelessly comments on seeing [[PantyShot girls' panties]] and the size of their breasts, would clearly love to get laid by any beautiful girl he meets, ''and'' one of the first talks to his ChildhoodFriend Mikae involves him potentially asking her for a lay. However, he won't force a girl to do anything she doesn't want to do, and is disgusted by the misogynistic statements made by the school's resident [[TheCasanova womanizer]], Toshio. Heck, there are ''several'' events in which he must either go the RescueRomance way ([[spoiler: saving Remi from a kidnapping, rescuing Mayumi from a rapist]]) or be AboveTheInfluence ([[spoiler: not kissing Ryouko when she's angry at her brother, thinking twice about hugging Yumi-sensei when she's drunk]])
* Battler Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' attempts to grope every girl he sees, expecting it to fail and for the expected slap to lighten the mood. Especially odd as many of those girls are his [[KissingCousins cousins]]. However, when [[ShrinkingViolet Shannon]] actually appears to be about to let him grope her, Battler freaks out and scolds her not to do that since he's actually uncomfortable with taking advantage. Not only that, but in ''Legend of the Golden Witch'' he insists that Shannon has the right to smack him if he gets within 10cm of her breasts — and the '''obligation''' to if he gets within 2cm. The Umineko fighting game takes Battler's love of groping UpToEleven by ''making it one of his attacks''. Seriously, it has to be seen to be believed.
** Rudolf, his [[LikeFatherLikeSon father]], is also somewhat on this territory, although he also has an unfortunate tendency to [[HandsomeLech cheat on his wife]].
** [[FutureBadass Ange's]] bodyguard, Jugo Amakusa, also qualifies. He got fired by [[spoiler:her aunt and guardian Eva]] for disobeying instructions not to talk to Ange while he was on duty. Never mind talk to her, he [[BodyguardCrush hit on her]]!
* Larry Butz in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', who falls in love quickly and is very passionate about the ladies. Unfortunately most of them seem to end up using him, leaving him, being murdered, or being [[WhipItGood Franziska von Karma.]]
** Klavier Gavin will flirt with pretty much ''anyone'', but doesn't take well to the suggestion that he doesn't treat his "lovers" (or guitars) well, and is an all-around NiceGuy.
** From ''VideoGame/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth 2'', Tateyuki Shigaraki's (Raymond Shields from the FanTranslation) first order of business whenever he starts a conversation with a woman is to ask them for a hug. He typically gets rejected on the spot, but this doesn't stop him from being one of the [[NiceGuy genuinely nicest]] people in the game, and being polite to the people he respects.
* Kurt from ''VideoGame/{{Nicole}}'' is a shameless flirt who pretty much never lets up on the one-liners, innuendos, and come-ons -- but he never tries to pressure Nicole into anything, and [[spoiler:if she doesn't resist when he first tries to kiss her, he pulls back and becomes upset because it's clear that she's not into it, and he's not interested in kissing her if she doesn't feel the same way]].
* Keenan Caine from ''[[VisualNovel/BlissStageLoveIsYourWeapon Bliss Stage: First and Final Act]]'' is this in spades:
-->"Yukiko is my anchor, my friend and my one true love. She comes first. The moment she tells me she's uncomfortable with my... [[TriangRelations activities with]] [[MsFanservice Mulan]] is the moment they cease."
* ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'':
** Akane from ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' combines this with SingleTargetSexuality. When she and Junpei search the 2nd class cabins she makes multiple sexual comments, including suggestion to take shower together. Later, during the infamous [[OneDialogueTwoConversations elevator scene]] she manages to describe her [[ItMakesSenseInContext fear of drowning]] in the most sexual way possible, heavily turning Junpei on, before he realised what she's talking about. [[spoiler: Considering their {{Mindlink|Mates}} it's very likely that she knew what's going on through his head and was teasing him on purpose]]. At the same time she's a NiceGirl and it's pretty clear that she really loves him. For better or worse her naughtiness is almost completely gone in ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''.
** Sigma from ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' is basically a complete pervert. He doesn't exactly try to hide it either - he gets explicitly turned on by Clover pulling on a lever due to comparing it to a certain sexual act; in one ending when he's stuck in the facility, he laments that it's not so bad because he's the only fertile man among 4 young women; and asks Clover, Luna and Phi for "swimsuit action" as a reward. Except he does genuinely care about them all, and obviously values them as people. Especially Luna, whom it's made clear that he has a strong bond of trust with. His attraction to Luna also seems to go beyond just perversion, since it's mentioned a number of times that his favorite things about Luna are her warm smile and cheery voice.
** In ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', Sigma's love interest for that game, Diana, [[spoiler:starts dissolving into alcoholism after being stuck in the underground shelter with Sigma for months on end begins to mess with her emotionally. One night she gets very drunk, and asks Sigma to have sex with her. Sigma flat out refuses, even after Diana insults him for not being a real man for it, and instead tries to get her to stop drinking. After Sigma mentions Diana's abusive ex-husband to her, the two begin to overcome their emotional trauma by supporting each other, resulting in them having romantic sex. Diana ends up falling pregnant and giving birth from this to a daughter and son, [[ItMakesSenseInContext the former of which her and Sigma's currently dead best friend, while the latter is the terrorist mastermind who locked everyone in the underground shelter in the first place]].]]

* Lawrence Spectrum from ''Webcomic/{{Monsterful}}''. A playful ghost who even though he tends to nosebleeds a lot from many situations he is a very respectful young fellow, he's just very lucky that he's very cute. He especially respects older woman and tends to be a funny innocent pervert with her two best friends Sapphire and Lily, specially with Lily who he teases a lot.
* Sam from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. He is a particularly goofy example, highly incompetent and easily distracted even after becoming a [[strike: vampire]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Sampire]], but he does mean well and has managed to help save Zoe on at least two occasions.
** Sam thinks he's a Casanova, and ends up being a Chivalrous Pervert in spite of himself.
* Tedd from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. I mean seriously, ''Grace'' has used the [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-04-23 X-Ray on his glasses]] more than ''he''!
** Elliot had this as part of his early characterization, before it [[CharacterizationMarchesOn marched on]].
* Rainer from ''Webcomic/MSFHigh'' is either this or the HandsomeLech. Amongst other things, he's used his 360 vision to look up girl's panties, attempted to have one of his friends turned into a cute girl. (By the Friendly Neighborhood HIVE MIND!), and one telepath mentioned his mind 'was like a sewer'. Still, he's a really nice guy who has helped couples get together, at risk, (or LOSS) of his own life!
* Jake Packard in ''Webcomic/{{ISO}}'' is this trope to a T. EvenTheGuysWantHim and there's almost [[AnythingThatMoves no one he won't hump]], but he's actually genuinely sweet and honorable and won't go an inch further than he's been permitted to.
* Joe Rosenthal from ''Webcomic/ItsWalky''. Started out as a LovableSexManiac ("[[http://web.archive.org/web/20130629182614im_/http://www.itswalky.com/comics/20040111a.jpg every 50th girl gets a coupon for half-off any entree at Fazoli's]]", [[http://www.itswalky.com/d/20040111.html note that this adds up to some 40+ coupons]]), but over the years he became quite chivalrous.
* [[http://twokinds.net/?p=477 This]] page of ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'' sums up Eric's motivation for preventing genocide quite nicely.
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'', When the well-being of Daisy or Lucy is in danger, Paulo tends to forget his perversion in favor of helping them or, at least, trying to. He also reacted this way when Sue got hurt in Confrontation.
* Minmax the Unstoppable Fighter of ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' humiliates his adventuring partner by calling out the charisma stats of every woman he walks past on the street, but upon finding out that his idol Dellyn Goblinslayer is [[spoiler:[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raping and torturing a captured yuan-ti girl]], Minmax [[DestinationDefenestration flings Dellyn through a window]] and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beats him almost to death]]. When the yuan-ti comes along with Minmax and Forgath, Minmax goes out of his way to loophole his own principles which say he should just kill her for XP, and respects the fact that she understandably HatesBeingTouched.]] Earlier on, he tells off Drowbabe for not remotely resembling a real woman: "[[{{GIRL}} It's like you're created by some lonely, horny teenage guy who's never kissed a girl and has no idea how women react realistically in any situation]]!"
* Fedya from ''Webcomic/{{Rhapsodies}}'' will hit on just about anything that moves but he will take no for an answer and is more than happy to be "just friends". Of course with his gregarious nature, and [[HuskyRusskie warped idea of a good time,]] [[http://rhapsodies.wpmorse.com/comic/05132011/ many women find themselves missing being treated as a sex object.]]
* Betelgeuse, in ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'', is graduating from a DirtyOldMan into this as the story progresses. (Slowly.)

[[folder: Web Original]]
* In WebVideo/TheWithVoicesProject, the Mogekos of VideoGame/TheGrayGarden act this way towards the heroines. The Mogekos of VideoGame/MogekoCastle, are just thoroughly evil, unchivalrous perverts.
* Paul Smith from ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' is one of these, although arguably he's slightly more pervert than chivalrous. Nevertheless, he still does care about the ladies' feelings... somewhat. It's also notable that he doesn't actually consider himself be a pervert.
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara.]] Apparently, being feminist gives him an "appreciation for the female body".
** Shown even further in ''Linking with Linkara''.
-->'''WebVideo/MarzGurl:''' I think, what it comes down to is, it has to be just you and me. Lesbianism.\\
'''Linkara:''' Can I watch?\\
'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick:''' No, you're a feminist, and that's exploitation.\\
'''Linkara:''' (''breaks down crying'') I KNOW!
** In his joint review of ''Film/AloneInTheDark2005'' with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, when raving at the absurdity of the love interest visiting the protagonist of the film just to sleep with him, and start doing so without asking or even ''talking'', he then admits that he wishes some women ''would'' do that.
** That said, he has repeatedly shown his disgust towards certain people in the comic book industry that focus so much on female sex appeal, they might as just start making porn.
* More subtly, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. He will fall in love with any ActionGirl, he's a subby masochist, he has a BerserkButton of women not having the power they should, and he takes a lot of offense to the FauxActionGirl trope due to the way it treats women, but he'll make it clear if he's having the hots for someone in whatever he's reviewing. (Female ''and'' male.)
* Ayla Goodkind, codename Phase, of the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse''. He looks so much like a girl (because of his mutation) that he can shower in the girls' bathroom... and look at everyone else in there. On the other hand, he's really considerate of his girlfriend and his female friends, even if he's only about fifteen. And the girls in the bathroom haven't asked him to leave (yet).
* Tucker from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' is constantly making smutty comments, but usually treats the female cast members with respect.
* The ''WebVideo/RWBYAbridged'' version of Jaune Arc zigzags this tropes, as he can get pretty saucy with his comments towards women, but he's very polite in how he goes about it. He compliments women on their skills, independence and intelligence as much as their looks, takes being harshly rejected multiple times pretty well and seems to like it when women don't immediately fall for his good looks. That being said, Jaune is also a total dick to women he perceives as hussies and accuses Pyrrha of being obsessed with trying to gain the attention of random men because she dresses like a slut.
* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Andy isn't above making a pervy joke or two, which is usually why Martha slaps him. He doesn't disrespect ladies, he just kind of has a pervy sense of humor.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Quagmire, who frequently engages in {{Ephebophile}}-like behavior, including Meg. Despite his lust for – and later, near sexual relationship with – Meg, he has shown on many occasions that he cares for Meg, comforting her and giving her advice in her time of need.
** This only applies to Meg; to almost everyone else he's somewhere between LovableSexManiac and Blatant Perv. There's one episode in which the gang is playing "I Never," and Quagmire drinks to ''literally everything'' that's said. After the first few (comparatively believable) lines, the scene fades to show dozens of empties in front of Quagmire while the others are still on their first beer and trying (unsuccessfully) to think of something sexual that Glenn won't have to drink to.
---> '''Peter''': Geez, what else ''is'' there? I never gave a reach-around to a spider monkey while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
---> '''Quagmire''': Aw, God!
---> '''Joe''': I never picked up an illegal alien at Home Depot to take home and choke me while I touched myself.
---> '''Quagmire''': Oh, ''come on''!
---> '''Peter''': I never did the same thing, but with someone from [=JoAnn=] Fabrics.
---> '''Quagmire''': Oh God, this is ridiculous!
** Another episode has Quagmire condemning the idea of cheating on one's wife, saying that marriage is a sacred bond between two people, which is why he will never marry.
** Herbert the pedophile MAY be this. Although he frequently preoccupies himself with ensnaring little boys, he harbors an unrequited crush on Chris Griffin that appears to go beyond mere lust, evidenced in his song "Somewhere That's Green" (parodying musical score for the off-Broadway & Broadway stage musical and later, film adaptation of Little Shop of Horrors) where he's dressed as a woman, marrying Chris, and settling down a quiet family life. In another episode he rescues Chris from an evil possessed tree and fights it in another parody of the battle between Gandalf and the Balrog in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. He also faces off against an old enemy from his days as a soldier in World War 2 to save Chris.
* Beast Boy from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'' movie, [[ChickMagnet he gets his own legion of Japanese fangirls]], and enjoys it very much.
** Initially. After a several minutes of their attentions, he begins to grow weary of them, and eventually even ends up running away from them, though it's implied to only be a case of him seeing it as too much of a good thing.
* Female version: MagicalGirlWarrior Castaspella from ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower''. Adora catches her ogling her twin brother openly at least twice.
* Franchise/TheFlash in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. Hits on Franchise/WonderWoman and Hawkgirl ''constantly'', is thrilled at the prospect of visiting [[LadyLand Themyscira]], and is not above using his cred as a superhero to chat up the ladies. He's also, well, ''The Flash'', a genuine hero and as gentlemanly as Franchise/{{Superman}}, when it comes down to it.
** Though, remember, "Because I'm a Stud!"
** This is played for laughs in one episode, where two girls are seriously turned off when he flirts with them; then a car crashes through the diner they're in, and he has to move them to safety before they're crushed, then rush after the driver. Then one of them gets angry at the other for telling her to ignore him!
** When he developed a crush on Fire, he becomes shy and nervous around her.
* WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales is a friend of ''everybody's'' sister Carmella! Many cartoons show that Speedy is actually quite the romantic, in one case serenading a female mouse with a guitar on a gondolla.
%%* Sokka and Iroh from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''.
* Rex from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' has shades of this. He's a ChickMagnet well aware of his charm and in no way modest about it.
-->'''[[HotScientist Dr. Holiday]]''': I'm talking about the 90% negative spike in your bioenergy.
-->'''Rex''': [[DoubleEntendre My bios spike everytime I see you, Doctor Holiday]].
-->'''Bobo''': [[DeadpanSnarker Smooth. Like sandpaper]].
* ComicBook/PlasticMan in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' is portrayed as this. He hits on ''every'' attractive superheroine he meets. He seems to be doing it for fun more than anything, as can be seen in "Night of the Batmen!" where, after Catwoman expresses her interest in him, he replies "Tempting. But I'm really more of a dog person". Eel's married and has a child, but that doesn't affect his... admiration.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Anthony Ainley (intermittently [[Series/DoctorWho the Master]] for a really startling span of time) was apparently quite a bit like this in person; at least once he made a blatant pass at a fan, was politely turned down, and then went on to have a perfectly civilized conversation with her immediately afterward.
* {{Pirate}} Captain George Lowther ran quite literally a very tight ship [[HonorAmongThieves despite his off-putting profession]], including giving much respect to women who weren't willing to consent. He was once quoted saying, "If at any time you meet with a prudent woman, that man that offers to meddle with her, without her consent, shall suffer present death."
* UsefulNotes/CharlesII of England. He is famous for his mistresses and his bastards but he stood by his much wronged queen Catherine when she came under political attack, sat with her faithfully when she was ill and apparently never even considered divorcing her for failing to give him an heir. He publicly acknowledged and doted on his illegitimate children, and he would also take no for an answer - which isn't usual with Kings. And some of his last words on his deathbed were 'Let not poor Nelly starve', meaning Nell Gwyn, his mistress.
* Apparently, Creator/NathanFillion. Nobody can make [[http://twitter.com/NathanFillion/status/19099109706 "take off your shirt" jokes]] to Creator/FeliciaDay [[http://twitter.com/NathanFillion/status/19103992112 but him]].
* Of all people, Casanova. His reputation of having sex with anything that couldn't outrun him was justified, but he avoided overly simple or overly complex conquests, and actually valued intelligence in a woman. His primary target were women who were married for reasons other than love and was simply showing them affection that their more brutish (or often, simply indifferent) husbands didn't.
** According to legend, he always carried a travel case with plates, silverware, a portable stove, a pan and two eggs so that he would be able to make breakfast for his lover on the morning after, no matter where they happened to be.
* Gender-bending scene-pop/{{crunkcore}} singer Jeffree Star is slightly sex-crazed if [[IntercourseWithYou the subject matter of all his songs]] is any indication, but when he caught former tourmate Dahvie Vanity of Blood On The Dance Floor banging underage girls, he clearly demonstrated where he drew the line.
* The band Music/ZZTop, apparently. DoubleEntendre filled Lyrics and {{Fanservice}}-y videos and album covers, but in several of their music videos they provide a DeusExMachina to smite those who act like jerks towards a woman. Taken UpToEleven in the video for "Legs", where they basically just give the girl a confidence-boost so that she can go back and humiliate them.
* UsefulNotes/AbdulAzizIbnSaud lived this trope. He was as spectacular a wife-collector as any "sheik of araby" but he generally treated them very well by the standards of his culture and of his status in life, and does not seem to have ever had sex with any woman not his wife. He was also very scrupulous in never having more than the legal maximum of four at any given time, while it's trivially easy for a man to divorce his wife in Islam (it's not the literal "say 'I divorce you' three times," as often rumored, but it is more or less at-will), he ''did'' pay the religiously required alimony and child support to his numerous ex-wives (which a lot of men in his position would've tried to weasel their ways out of). He also responded to reports of his son having imposed himself on a New York hotel maid with a thorough beating by his own fists.
* [[Music/RoxyMusic Bryan Ferry]] - and how! One memorable story involves him taking an album cover model (Jerry Hall) home, supposedly to help her remove body paint that wouldn't come off. Also, with the advent of Tumblr. he's [[http://bryanferry.tumblr.com/post/10690007120/consider-it-a-birthday-gift-from-me-to-you Mr.]] [[http://bryanferry.tumblr.com/post/10451432268/fuckmorrissey-solo-bryanferry Fanservice]]
* Hugh Hefner, if [[https://twitter.com/hughhefner/status/90567328336580608 this]] tweet in response to someone asking how he "has so many bitches" is any indication.

** One of Hugh Hefner's former Playboy Bunnies, Kendra Wilson, described him as very respectful towards the women, he had never treated them badly and never forced them to have sex with him, he asked them politely and was discreet by saying "do you want to go upstairs?". He treated the women as if he was in a genuine relationship with them and not forced by wealth, profit or luxury. She also said that he paid for her wedding (he spent over a million dollars for her) when she was engaged and that she described him as a best friend rather than a boss.
* We've mentioned Jack Harkness before, but his actor Creator/JohnBarrowman counts as well. He's developed a reputation for being... overly affectionate, both with co-stars (he's apparently flashed every costar he's worked with, with Creator/ElisabethSladen being the sole exception) and with audiences (it's a running joke that a convention hasn't really begun until Barrowman has kissed someone.) However, he's been HappilyMarried for six years to a partner he's been with for over twenty.
* Bob Guccione may have been the publisher of the audaciously racy ''Penthouse Magazine'', but he also developed a reputation of creating one of the best magazine businesses for women to work in in the 1970s, rivaled only by Gloria Steinem's ''Ms. Magazine'', with no issues with sexual harassment and with many women in senior editorship and management positions.
