[[caption-width-right:330: [-The [[TropeNamer original]] love freak. We'd say "Accept no substitutes", but she'd disapprove of us not accepting people.-] ]]

->''"Everybody! Love! And! Peace!"''
-->-- '''Selphie Tilmitt''', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''

Often spouting dialogue about [[LoveYouAndEverybody love]] and [[ForGreatJustice justice]], this character is [[WideEyedIdealist naive]] and [[TheDitz lacks common sense]]; her [[{{Determinator}} determination]] is usually the only thing keeping her from being completely incompetent (even if she is potentially very powerful). She can also act a little hypocritical, being as sneaky or outright violent as the wickedness she supposedly fights.

How satirically this character is portrayed depends on the mood and personality of the lead, although writers design her to be somewhat sympathetic. Nonetheless, it is difficult for the other characters to really dislike her, because she is honestly nice and a loyal friend.

Somewhat like the AllLovingHero, but not as charismatic or as effective, placing this character in a supporting role 99 percent of the time. May admire the KnightTemplar at first and continue to do so if the Templar is not portrayed negatively.

See also ThePollyanna, NaiveEverygirl, {{Stupid Good}}. Occasionally has problems if they're forced to be a ReluctantWarrior.

Not to be confused with the [[LoveMakesYouCrazy other]] type of Love Freak.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''{{Magikano}}'''s dirt-poor, oblivious witch hunter, Marin.
* Princess Amelia in ''TheSlayers'' is probably the best example from that series.
** With her father, Prince Phil, being an ''even more'' over-the-top gender-flipped version.
* Might Guy of ''{{Naruto}}'' is perpetually ranting about love and springtime and [[HotBlood passionate, flaming youth]] (In a completely non-sexual way, believe it or not), and is eagerly imitated by his [[BadassNormal star pupil, Rock Lee]] -- this bizarre behavior leads some to believe that a sort of [[HoYay Zeus-Ganymede dynamic]] exists between the two, but this is merely conjecture. He even persuades said student to undergo a risky operation by promising to 'follow' him if he doesn't survive. Then they tearfully embrace.
* Strike Man from ''[[YoureUnderArrest You're Under Arrest]]'' really ''is'' incompetent, and is played for laughs.
* Winner Sinclair from ''{{Karin}}'' is a spoof, often rattling off words that make no sense in Japanese (he's Romanian) but have something to do with love or determination or whatnot. Nobody takes him seriously. The kicker is, the KnightTemplar's his grandfather.
* Usagi Tsukino, of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' fame, has the exact personality traits described above, although most people tend to see her in a simple MagicalGirlWarrior role, or from a [[MessianicArchetype Messiah]] mold, as the series flat-out names her the Messiah.
** Aino Minako, or Sailor Venus, would be another obvious choice - going on about love as much as Sailor Moon, because she's aware she's an incarnation of the goddess Venus/Aphrodite or at least connected to her. She tries to play this up but fails at it as her being unlucky in love despite this is a recuring theme throughout her manga, ''Manga/CodenameSailorV.''
* Hotaru from ''Manga/DotHackLegendOfTheTwilight''.
* Ai Tanabe from ''{{Planetes}}'' always preaches about love and kindness to others. Appropriately enough, [[MeaningfulName her first name]] means "love" in Japanese.
* [[ThePollyanna Fuura Kafuka]] from ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''; also extremely [[TheDitz ditzy]] and played for every drop of satire the series can wring out of her.
** Do note that on a few rare occasions, hints are dropped that this behavior is [[StepfordSmiler nothing but an act]], and we should actually be [[BewareTheNiceOnes VERY afraid of Kafuka.]]
* An itinerant P.E. teacher in a filler episode in the ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' anime.
* Anzu/Tea Mazaki of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' seems hardly able to speak about anything but ThePowerOfFriendship. She wasn't as bad in the original Japanese; Anzu allowed herself to be a bit more cynical.
** Parodied in the Abridged Series with her trying to fix a lightning bolt to the head with friendship.
** [[MoralityPet Mokuba]] is also portrayed this way in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', desperately trying to make friends in what amounts to a cast of JerkAss actors. In the original, Mokuba only obsessed over his [[PromotionToParent Promoted To Parent]] big brother.
* In ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'' Yurika's overriding and outspoken faith in True Love and Justice ([[ClingyJealousGirl especially True Love]]) accounts for about 50% of the "Ditz" in her GeniusDitz personality. The other half is just being generally {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
* Every single character in ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' who's on the good side is a LoveFreak, including the one who got a ([[ThePowerOfLove magically forced]]) HeelFaceTurn.
* Akari from ''{{Manga/ARIA}}'' fits this trope like a single glove, though ''the entire show itself'' could also be argued to qualify.
* El in ''ShugoChara'' is a prime example, making speeches about love whenever she possibly can.
* Albert from ''{{Gankutsuou}}'' becomes this somewhat, after getting convinced that what matters most for people to marry for is love. Initially, it was Maximilien who thought this way more, but he later became more understanding after hearing Franz tell him that marrying the one you love isn't always the way to bring them happiness. So instead, [[WideEyedIdealist Albert]] becomes the one more obsessed with it than Maximilien. Because of his fixation on the idea of [[ThePowerOfLove true love]], he starts questioning his own ArrangedMarriage with Eugenie, and frequently talks about how he wishes to truly experience love...
* Duck/Ahiru from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' -- even more so (if such a thing is possible) when she's in Tutu form. More importantly, she's much more eloquent and persuasive about it.
* Haiji from ''Manga/AiKora''.
* Vash in ''{{Trigun}}''. ''"My name is Vash the Stampede. I am a hunter of peace, chasing the elusive mayfly known as love..."'' Cue BishieSparkle.
** [[{{Catchphrase}} PEACE AND LOVE!]]
--->'''Vash''': Repeat after me! This world is made of...
--->'''Mayor''': ...
--->'''Vash''': THIS WORLD IS MADE!!
--->'''Mayor''': Th-This world is made...
--->'''Vash''': Of Love...and PEACE!!
* Sherry from ''Manga/FairyTail''. While not the standard (she was initially a villain), her first appearance consists of her simply talking about love.
-->'''Sherry''': We'll throw them into eternal darkness. In other words... ''love''.
-->'''Sherry''': Reitei sama will never love me now!
** Her cousin Chelia, in the timeskip, shares the same sentiment.
* Fran Madaraki of ''FrankenFran'' is a self-described "lover of love" and frequently performs procedures that she believes will bring couples together. Although she's far from incompetent-- she may be the second best surgeon in the world, after her creator-- she's extremely naive and her medical ethics are questionable at the very best.
* Elmer C. Albatross of LightNovel/{{Baccano}} is a hardcore example, to the point where his behavior often stops being annoying and becomes seriously disturbing (such as when he cheerfully encouraged a young girl to smile after her fiancee was murdered right in front of her). This is probably because he [[TheAntiNihilist doesn't see any inherent meaning or morality in the world]], so instead he just wants everyone to be happy.
* From the same creator comes [[spoiler:Saika]] of ''{{Durarara}}'', a [[spoiler:sword]] who just wants to love anyone and everyone. Of course, since she's [[spoiler:an EmpathicWeapon that "breeds" by cutting people]], [[TheVirus this dream can only end in disaster.]]
* In ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'', Keima Katsuragi always blabbers about love... in games. He's rather detached from reality (to say the least), but he's anything but incompetent.
* In "[[MacademiWasshoi Magician's Academy]]" specifically episode 5 introduces [[spoiler:Hapshiel]] who loves everyone and wants to share this. Seeing as [[spoiler:he's invincible as well as dense as a plank and a bisexual masochist he doesn't really know how to stop loving people.]]
* Yuuri from KyouKaraMaou, who becomes king of the Demons and sets out to end thousands of years of racism by reaching out the Humans with compassion and never distrusting anyone, ever. Because he has such [[UndyingLoyalty good]] [[TrueCompanions support]], it works. Mostly.
* ''America'' from ''{{Axis Powers Hetalia}}'' is a good candidate for this - though he's mostly got a [[AmericaSavesTheDay hero complex]]. He does mention [[spoiler:getting back ''Lithuania'' and ''Poland'' together for justice]] in a pretty famous comic strip in which [[spoiler:America and Lithuania are lying in bed and talking about the men in their lives]], and anyway - a 'hero' complex has everything to do with love and justice. Though does preaching that they'll save love and justice count?
* Riruka Dokugamine from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is something of an example, as she proclaims her Fullbring ability to be ThePowerOfLove. Her power is supposedly compatible with anything she loves (which are mostly stuffed animals and other cute girly things). [[spoiler:She's also the TokenGoodTeammate among the Fullbringers.]] However, she has some {{tsundere}} tendencies that prevent her from being a complete example.
* [[spoiler:Shinka]] in the animated version of ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'' was one when she was in the MsImagination stage. While she grew out of it and saw that as OldShame, she still shows traces of it now.
* Miss Crangela from {{Manhwa/LetDai}} is quite a realistic example.
* Kazehana, from ''{{Sekirei}}'', is somewhat of a more mature example. While she starts out as a BrokenBird nursing a broken heart, and becomes the CoolBigSis of the group.....she's also prone to interrupting serious moments by squealing about how wonderful ~love~ is. Musubi and [[spoiler: Yume]] play it more straight, giving speeches about ThePowerOfLove. Of course, since love is the source of a Sekirei's true power, this makes them somewhat GenreSavvy.
* President Lory Takarada of ''{{Skip Beat}}'' is in love with love. He likes to spread and preach about the wonders of love whenever he can and believes in it more than anything else in the world. He's so infamous for his dedication to love and romance that everybody in his company is well aware of it.
* Stomped into the dirt and ground under [[Creator/JunjiIto Junji Ito's]] heel in the story ''Army Of One''. The titular group preaches that everyone is friends and should join hearts and love each other... by killing people and sewing them together in increasingly and creatively brutal fashions. Turns out it's [[spoiler: Natsuko somehow doing it all by herself.]]
--> '''Radio:''' Gather round, people! All together now! Nobody likes a lonely only! Everyone's your friend, everyone's your friend, when you join hearts and sing - Army of One, we're an Army of One! Everybody join hands now, everybody join hearts now, Army of Oooooone!!
* Bojiggler from ''{{Manga/Bobobo-boBo-bobo}}'' takes this trope to its logical extreme--one minute he's preaching about love and peace and how much he hates hurting people; the next he's beating or blasting the everloving shit out of people for ''no reason at all!''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The children of Aphrodite in ''{{Percy Jackson and the Olympians}}''.
* The main character in ''Literature/InvisibleMan'' is a good example of what happens when one of these people actually gets followers (most of whom are absolutely desperate for someone to guide them out of the hell they're living in.) It doesn't go well, but only because he's also a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter and an UnwittingPawn.
* [[Literature/JeevesAndWooster Madeline Bassett]]. "The stars are God's daisy chain." [[http://www.hatsharpening.com/j&w/quotes/Madeline.mp3 That is all.]]
* In the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' [[LightNovel/DisgaeaNovels novels]] we meet [[TropeNamer Flonne]]'s parents, [[Characters/DisgaeaNovels Terre and Elle]], two HappilyMarried angels who may be [[UpToEleven even bigger love freaks]] than their daughter.
* In Creator/AletheaKontis's ''Literature/{{Enchanted}}'', Friday is "loving and giving," spending all her time helping orphans and the old, and [[TextileWorkIsFeminine sewing clothes for them.]]
%% * Jessamine Lovelace from ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices'', wants someone to take her away from the Institute.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In ''{{Scrubs}}'', psychiatrist [[ThePollyanna Molly]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Clock]] believed that love and happiness motivated everybody on some level, and resident bastards Dr. Cox and Kelso couldn't convince her that [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike "People are bastard coated bastards with bastard filling."]] They try to break her spirit by being mean to her, though when she fakes being upset they feel bad about it and prove to her that what she said about people being good on the inside was right.
* Cupids and [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Whitelighters]] in ''Series/{{Charmed}}''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Christian, the lead in ''MoulinRouge''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Hope from ''{{Urinetown}}'', whose insistence on "following your heart" ends up [[spoiler:squandering the water supply and killing most of the city of thirst; it's implied she ends up dead at the survivors' hands.]] Moral of the story: [[SpoofAesop Don't put the Love Freak in charge]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The TropeNamer here is Angel Trainee Flonne from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', who is actually called a "Love Freak" in the game.
** So much of a love freak, that she can't so much as jump in battle without saying the word in some of the games.
** She is contrasted with two of the series' Archangels, to show how much more she ''gets'' the whole "[[ThePowerOfLove Power of Love]]" thing than them; Vulcanus pays lip service to the concept but is actually a hateful bigot, and while [[VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2 Virunga]] is kinder, legitimately well intentioned, and even tries to claim his actions in the name of "Love", but he doesn't realize that taking Sicily back to Celestia is CruelMercy and she is actually happier in the Netherworld. Flonne is such a pure example of this trope that she eventually [[spoiler:becomes a Archangel herself]].
* Kim Kaphwan of the ''FatalFury'' series has made it his life's goal to eliminate evil and stand for justice and truth... as well as strong-arming criminals into his "reformatory" program of intensive training[[note]]his reformation of Chang Koehan and Choi Bounge led to the formation of Team Korea in the ''King of Fighters'' series[[/note]]. Later on in the series, he seems to gain the ability to DetectEvil, as his eyes glow yellow whenever he meets up with an evil character. Indeed, fans often use Kim's "evil sense" as a way to determine whether or not a character is truly a villain. His son Jae Hoon also follows suit, and sometimes labels someone overconfident but not completely evil like Gato... EVIL!
** Tizoc/The Griffon is a Justice Freak who is not from the Kim family. Justified, because he is somewhat of an idol to children and has to uphold the "hero of justice" persona for their sake. Like Kim, he also has a special intro against evil people.
* Colette Brunel in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', at her most ditzy, is this trope. [[Quotes/LoveFreak Not only does she have a lot of post battle lines about "justice and love" that annoy Lloyd and Kratos]], but she at one point states her intention of asking someone who wanted to kill her two minutes prior about why the would-be assassin would want to do that "when we become friends". [[spoiler:Incidentally, they do become friends, and Colette does ask her.]]
* Alfina from ''GrandiaIII'', as shown in [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/02/22/ this]] ''PennyArcade'' strip.
* Fenthick in the first chapter of NeverwinterNights is possibly the most naive character ever to have been placed in any position of authority anywhere.
* Before you learn of [[BreakTheCutie her]] [[TraumaCongaLine back]][[TheAtoner story]], [[NaughtyNuns Leliana]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' appears to be one.
* [[MeaningfulName Aino Heart]], the main character from the [[ImprobablyFemaleCast all-girls fighting game]] ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' is a ''literal'' Love Freak, up to the point that her Arcana is a ''[[ThePowerOfLove love]]'' elemental. Hell, her ''[[IdiotHair ahoge]]'' is ''[[HeartSymbol heart-shaped]]''. Her win quotes all espouse the virtues of love over fighting, and since there are no guys around for her to use these on, this can lead to some...''[[LesYay interesting]]'' interpretations.
* There are actually TWO examples of this in ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. First is the traditional LoveFreak Xavi. And second is the [[LoveFreak Justice Freak]] in the same vein of Kim Kaphwan, Azai Nagamasa.
** The third game adds MagicalGirl parody Tsuruhime.
* In ''SamuraiWarriors'', conversely, Azai Nagamasa gets the LoveFreak treatment (since his tragic relationship with Oichi is one of his defining traits in Japanese depictions), but shares the Honor Freak and Justice Freak roles with Naoe Kanetsugu. (Interestingly, [[spoiler:her Story tweaks their tragic parting by having it come before a final, full-fledged battle, so instead of merely having an unwilling Oichi returned to her brother before the castle's fall as is the popular depiction, she starts the battle on Nobunaga's side ''and'' due to gameplay she lands the killing blow. In Mitsuhide's story mode, however, he surrenders and after a verbal barb by Nobunaga he kills himself with Mitsuhide's sword.]])
** And of course, Koei's poster boy for [[LoveFreak Justice Freak]] is actually [[DynastyWarriors Ma Chao]]. He can't go two or three sentences without using the word 'justice'. The people from [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys Wu]] mock him for it.
*** As of Number seven, Shu itself is pretty much "Benevolence Freak, the Kingdom". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G_DB-WhbR4 Seriously.]]
* In ''VideoGame/WorldHeroes'', Rasputin is a flamboyant old man with fruity poses, and sometimes very big hands or feet, but never stops spewing the virtues of love. He is most famous for his SuperMove ''Garden of Love'' where he... drags the enemy to the ground through a garden of flowers, with his face implanted on it, and there are some... suggestive things happening. All we can trust is those heart signs coming out of it. {{Squick}}.
* Sora from ''KingdomHearts'' is more of a "Friendship Freak", but his often cut-scene covering speeches about [[ThePowerOfFriendship how nobody can defeat one, who's got friends, love and a strong heart]] could easily compete with that of your average LoveFreak.
** To be fair, the Keyblade and general metaphysics of the game world seem to agree with him.
** And anyone who disagrees will probably get a skyscraper thrown into their face.
*** Aqua from ''Birth By Sleep'' is almost as bad as Sora when it comes to friendship speeches and philosophies. But, even moreso than Sora, it's [[MemeticBadass best not to disagree with her.]] Ven also qualifies: whenever he's not fighting the Unversed or running after the friends he already has, he sums up his goal as "just trying to make friends".
* Shyna Nera Shyna of ''VideoGame/SilhouetteMirage'' is constantly spouting things about the importance of her mission and calling herself the "Messenger of Justice", when [[spoiler:Her mission pretty much entails TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt]].
* Deconstructed in ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'' in the form of Atoli. Her LoveFreak attributes drive her to be close to an anti-PVP guild (where PVP is SeriousBusiness in the game). She is ''so'' much of a LoveFreak Haseo basically went nuts. What nobody knows is that [[spoiler: this is motivated by her complete lack of self-esteem which pushes her to do "good" stuff to gain acceptance]]. To twist the knife further, her most trusted friend/mentor [[spoiler:Sakaki is actually manipulating her, milking her trust in him and her powers of the Second Epitaph, Innis]]. Oh, and did we mention she met him on [[spoiler: a ''suicide website'']]?
* Selphie from ''FinalFantasyVIII''.
* Polka from ''EternalSonata''.
* Bang Shishigami, '''[[NoIndoorVoice THE NINJA OF LOVE AND JUSTICE]]''', from ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}''.
* Videogame/{{DeathSpank}} is a ''Hero of the Downtrodden, Dispenser of Justice and Vanquisher of evil''. The word Justice is present in some way or form in almost every conversation he has.
* The {{Pokemon}} Luvdisc is [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Luvdisc_(Pokémon) apparently one.]]
** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite's'' N tends to be regarded as such by his detractors.
*** Also, incredibly rare Pokemon Manaphy has the power to connect with ''anyone's'' heart. You'd think he'd be N's perfect companion were he not introduced a generation earlier.
* Furfur and Zepar from ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. It's worth noting that they're named for [[ArsGoetia Goetic demons]] who have the power to impel love between men and women. However, while they're very fond of talking about love [[LargeHam in the most over-the-top manner possible]], they certainly aren't naive about it. Also fittingly they both look like cute girls, but one of them is actually a WholesomeCrossdresser.
* While she does not preach to others, the ever-cheerful Milfie from VideoGame/{{Galaxy Angel}} loves pretty much everyone. This also makes her the easiest to perform well in battle and the Lucky Star is already generally better than the other ships to begin well.
* Cynthia, the [[CloudCuckooLander eccentric]] weapon shop owner from ArTonelico2. She very frequently brings up her loving relationship with the protagonist (hint: only she thinks there is one) and insists that weapons be forged with massive amounts of love.
* Komari from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters''', a [[TheCutie Cutie]] who strongly believes that you should always remain positive, that the world is filled with amazing and happy things, and that by making someone else happy you become happy which makes them even happier, causing a spiral of happiness for everyone. A less traditional example is Kyousuke, who often spouts (and genuinely believes) the sort of morals that would be cheesy even in kids' cartoons and is invariably highly touched by Komari's statements, to an extent that surprises even her.
* [[spoiler: Nagito Komaeda, AKA Super High School Level Good Luck]] from ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' is a ''very'' dark example, always talking at length about the power of hope over despair, and idolizing the Super High School Level students trapped on the island. He's also [[PsychoSupporter very much insane]] [[spoiler: and attempted to commit the first murder (though he ultimately failed) in order to kickstart the game and witness the cast triumph over adversity. Afterwards, he tries to get other students to collaborate with him on the next murder in order to make the investigation more exciting (he doesn't even care if he dies, as long as he can bring the students to the brink of despair, only for them to pull themselves back out.)]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Subversion: Grace from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' gives a Love Freaky speech, before it is revealed she was reading it from a book.
** The fact that this is on here as Grace's only Love Freaky thing is seriously distressing. Remember, this is our favorite [[TechnicalPacifist technically not "technical pacifist"]] who loves [[ChivalrousPervert pervert]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold with a heart of gold]] Tedd for who he is.
* Piffany from ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}''.
* Julie from ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure''.
* Gamzee from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' counts as one, given his chill attitude and friendly nature. This is notable because his entire species is typically very violent and murderous, while he is the exact opposite. [[spoiler: Until [[SuperpoweredEvilSide he goes sober,]] that is...]]
** Nepeta also counts, in that she's a [[{{Shipping}} shipping]] obsessed troll who even has a large shipping diagrams for the four quadrants of troll romance. [[spoiler: Her dancestor, that is to say, her ancestor's alternate-universe incarnation]] Meulin is Nepeta taken UpToEleven, mimicking her {{flanderization}} from some of the fanbase.
* In ''Webcomic/DragonMango'', while she's willing to fight ''oni'' and dragons, Peaches tries to save the oni queen and is cheerfully accepting of humanoid characters. [[http://www.dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter07/dm07-66.htm When Bleu Berry confesses to her many lies, Peaches's reaction is delight that her tragic backstory is not, after all, true.]]
* Aphrodite being the goddess of lust and passion is this in ''Webcomic/{{MYth}}''. Since she's concious that passion can't be archive withouth love and viseversa, she's getting her nose into other people's love lifes and it's determinated that Hades and Persephone consume their relationship. Ironically, Eros who's in charge of making people to fall in love, is more down to earth than her and often acts as her CloudcuckoolandersMinder.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WebOriginal]]
* Orn "Dutchy" Ayers of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' v4. At one point, he makes a speech to the [[SinisterSurveillance cameras]] that he and his friends will prevail over Danya and the game due to ThePowerOfFriendship, saying that friendship will always win over evil. Worth noting, though, is during this speech he is showing the camera (which is broadcasting to live television) the island's map, in an attempt to help any rescuers find where they are. He's also portrayed a lot more sympathetically than most.
* Seto Kaiba, of all people, is this in season 0 of WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries. It's even more disturbing to both Yugi and the audience considering [[JerkAss What regular Kaiba is]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''TheTick'' and most of his supporting cast are also incompetent and played for laughs.
** Almost everyone around The Tick becomes a DeadpanSnarker in response to him. American Maid is at least competent.
* Optimus Prime started out like this in ''TransformersAnimated'' with his "we're all just cogs in the Autobot machine" speech. He got over it very, very quickly around the time they got attacked by Megatron.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''' Starfire.
* The CareBears are the embodiment of this trope, though Love-A-Lot Bear shows this the most.
* In the [[ShowWithinAShow play within a play]], ''The Boy in the Iceberg'', in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Katara (a young, teenage MamaBear, water-bending, BadAss) is portrayed as something like this - an overly emotional "hope"-freak who can't go five minutes without launching into an inspirational speech about the value and power of hope (with tears in her eyes). The portrayal strikes a little close to home but nobody in the group wants to say anything (the real Katara's temper is not to be messed with).
* Heart Throb from the original ''MyLittlePony'' cartoon.
* Henry Killinger from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' is a [[TheStoic much more soft spoken]] variant.
** In an odd example, King Gorilla originally wasn't going to help The Monarch break out of prison. But when The Monarch mentioned Dr. Girlfriend, he changed his mind because he did not want to stand in the way of love.
