* Most incarnations of {{Franchise/Superman}}'s pal, JimmyOlsen.
** Superman himself. The essence of his character is being a shining example for others to look up to.
* Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan's younger brother, Jim Jordan.
* [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker]]. The fact that he's so nice is part of the reason his [[{{Woobie}} Woobiness]] is so pronounced in light of his [[DeusAngstMachina crappy life]] and the [[HeroWithBadPublicity irrational hatred]] [[UngratefulBastard he gets from those he helps.]]
** Even more so in the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate universe]], where he's one of the few unambiguously good characters and fights crime purely because it's the right thing to do.
* [[{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson.]] Creator/DCComics' official position is that he's the most beloved superhero in the community (yes, even moreso than ''Superman'') and that almost any member of it would instantly drop what they were doing to help if he were in trouble.
** Tim Drake, {{Robin}} III is also a nice guy, especially in his early ComicBook/RobinSeries. He took care of his girlfriend who was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend's child, and is good at babysitting kids. In the new DCU, he was also called a nice guy by Wondergirl.
* Scott Pilgrim from ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' is ultimately one. Scott is by no means perfect, being TheSlacker, a bit slow and does not think things through resulting in him sometimes inadvertably hurting those close him. However, he is pretty amiable, is the least hostile out of his group of friends, and Ramona ''did'' call him the nicest guy she dated (granted, everyone except perhaps Lucas Lee were jerks of varying degrees.) Scott's friends tend to veer more toward JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. Pretty much ''anyone'' can (and do, on many occasions) soliloquize about how much everyone adores the shit out of Cap, and never feel like they're laying it on too thick or being out of character; which is something that can't be done to many other characters without it tasting of a CreatorsPet. In the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, being a Nice Guy is actually the only reason the SuperSerum even ''worked'' - When it was given to a megalomaniac, it created the RedSkull. ColonelBadass [[Creator/TommyLeeJones Chester Phillips]] wanted to give it to a "[[BloodKnight Strong, Fast, Obedient Soldier]], and sixty years later we get to see [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk the results of THAT.]] Only a Good Man could become Captain America.
* The squeaky clean ''{{Franchise/Tintin}}'' is this, [[{{Foil}} in contrast]] to the brash, [[TheAlcoholic drunken]], and loud-mouthed [[BadButt Captain Haddock]].
* Mr. Tawky Tawny in the ''{{ComicBook/Shazam}}'' franchise sometimes causes a scare for being a humanoid tiger, anyone who takes the time to know about him will realize that he is a perfect gentleman and a wonderful person to know.
* Major Mapleleaf from ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'', as befits a super-Mountie.
* Jaime Reyes' BlueBeetle is basically Spider-Man without the world crapping on him as much. Thankfully, he has (or had thanks to Flashpoint) a strong supporting cast he could play off of.
* And of course, the Flash. No matter which one, The Flash will be this. Golden Age Jay Garrick, Silver Age Barry Allen, Bronze Age Wally West (though he bounced between this, JerkWithAHeartOfGold and ChivalrousPervert), DorkAge Bart Allen, all of them are consistently great guys who can and will become the best friend and surrogate brother of anyone they're with.
* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is this in most incarnations, despite a fairly rough childhood. Billy Batson is usually a really sweet guy, often remarked by other characters as being polite, friendly, kind and 'sunny'. And despite being able to turn into a superpowered demi-god, he is just as polite, friendly and kind as Captain Marvel. The Nu-52 version of Billy averts this, being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold , with said heart being buried waaaaay down beneath a whole lot of jerk.
* Klara Prast of the {{Runaways}}. She's perhaps the only member of the team with absolutely no DeadpanSnarker traits, and is usually far less inclined towards violence than her teammates. Of course, as an immigrant from the early 1900s who was brought into the present, she can sometimes be an InnocentBigot. Also, God help anyone who threatens her - her plant friends can get ''very'' protective...
* This is explicitly stated multiple times to be the reason why the Gaulish villagers keep DreadfulMusician Cacofonix around at all, despite him being a pretentious, delusional nuisance otherwise. Once you get past how GiftedlyBad he is and his [[SmallNameBigEgo complete inability to recognise it]], he's shown to be among the most caring, thoughtful and reasonable of the townspeople, although that [[BarbarianTribe isn't really]] [[NominalHero saying much]].
* Hollis Mason, in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', doubles as the OnlySaneMan. He's humble, friendly, and took up his career because he wanted to be a superhero. About the only thing he did in the story that could even count as ''mean'' was calling out a few people in his autobiography, and even then, the only person who really got it was [[PsychoForHire The Comedian]].
* In {{Fables}}, Boy Blue is possibly the nicest character in the series, being eternally friendly, polite, hard-working and caring. However, BewareTheNiceOnes is in full effect; in his past he was a brave soldier, but [[RetiredBadass he deliberately chose to be a boring office clerk]] because he simply didn't like adventure and fighting. When circumstances demand his return to action, however, he reminds everyone just what he can do, and even when he's not in action he's not afraid to call people out if they're behaving stupidly. The problems of the NiceGuy character in a romance arc actually get discussed in-story; Rose Red was definitely attracted to him after his adventures, but the attraction wanes when she realises he doesn't actually want to be an exciting person and was quite content to be an unpretentious nice guy, [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys which didn't mesh well with her own preferences for danger and excitement]].
** The Frog Prince Ambrose is another example, though in a slightly different way; Ambrose at first gave off the DumbIsGood vibe, while Blue's intelligence, courage and skill were known quite early on in the series, making his niceness more of a deliberate choice. However, it's later discovered that Ambrose takes it all the way up to IncorruptiblePurePureness levels, [[spoiler: and the MessianicArchetype powers he later gets are dependent on him maintaining this]]. He is best friends with Boy Blue, who points out that Ambrose was the ''only'' fable who had absolutely no crimes to be absolved of under the amnesty.
* Mighty the Armadillo from [[ArchieSonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic]]. Unlike most beings on Mobius, Mighty is so damn strong that nothing really poses a threat to him. Mighty uses this strength to benefit those that are weaker, including his less-brave friend Mighty the Squirrel and his long-lost sister Matilda. The only time that Mighty loses it is when he perceives harm as having come to his friends.
