* The ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series has a few:
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' we have Kaidan Alenko, the resident NiceGuy and male love interest.
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has Jacob Taylor, who is the OnlySaneMan in a DysfunctionJunction and a friendly, level-headed man. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he's also the only romance option that cheats on Shepard by the sequel.]]
** Liara (minus JerkassFacade in ''2'') and a paragon Shepard are seriously nice as well.
** Believe it or not, ''[[TookALevelInKindness Miranda]]'' has become this by ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', having absolutely zero KickTheDog moments, practically begging Shepard for forgiveness for desiring to put a control chip into them at the beginning of ''2'', and going further than ever to protect her sister from her father and in the process, warning innocent civilians about Sanctuary.
** Unless it's dealing with ArtificialIntelligence, Tali is one of the most selfless and kindest characters in the series. By ''3'', if Legion is still alive, [[CharacterDevelopment her hatred of AI also just about completely disappears]].
** [[TheLancer Garrus]] [[FriendlySniper Vakarian]] is a really friendly guy as well, as well as [[UndyingLoyalty incredibly loyal]] to Shepard. [=ME3=] pretty much makes him one of [[ShellShockedVeteran Shepard's]] biggest pillars of support, the others being the aforementioned Liara and Tali.
** A lot of the squad count, [[CharacterDevelopment especially as the series goes on]]. James Vega is quick to befriend the whole crew while [[ClassyCatBurglar Kasumi]], despite being the best thief in the galaxy, is a very sweet and endearing GenkiGirl.
** Leon Kennedy, Revan, Zack Fair, move over. A Paragon Shepard is portrayed as the [[IdealHero Ultimate Hero]] by the loading screen hints, if not the best example in gaming then in the top three, and shows even [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] how GoodIsNotSoft is done.
* Once Carth Onasi from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' gets over his trust issues, he turns out to be a pretty swell guy. His EstablishingCharacterMoment ''was'' holding on and waiting for you to get to the last EscapePod, then nursing your intermittently conscious butt back to health. He is also a romance option for the female PC.
** In the sequel there is the Disciple, who is also a possible love interest for the female PC.
** In both series the main PC can be played as such, specifically in the second game where the Jedi become the HeroAntagonist in comparison to a moral, just, and kind Exile.
* The Main Character in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' almost never speaks, but he seems like a really nice person, both in his few dialogue choices (always polite, considerate, and caring) and in action (helps almost everyone whom he meets overcome their psychological issues, works at a daycare center, hospital, ''and'' a tutor).
** Also the Male and Female Protagonists from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''.
** Rise Kujikawa from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Notable, because you'd pretty much expect her to be very {{Tsundere}} when you first see her. Twin tails, ZettaiRyouiki, one of the female leads and a love interest, voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya in the Japanese version... you get the picture. But not only is she ''not'' a {{Tsundere}}, she's even been described as the ''anti-Tsundere''. She's bubbly, outgoing, a gigantic flirt and acts quite down-to-earth despite being a famous (former) IdolSinger.
* A non-romantic example: Scott Shelby in ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' is an overweight, asthmatic private detective, but he's also a really nice fellow who can [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath single-handedly stop a general store robbery through the sheer power of his charisma.]] In another subversion of most Nice Guys on this page, he quickly became an EnsembleDarkHorse. In fact, his only real flaw is that [[spoiler: he's a vicious, twisted serial killer. Karma's a bitch, ain't she?]]
** It's saying a lot when [[spoiler:the nicest character in such a bleak story turns out to be the most evil character.]]
* Alistair, from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins,'' is about as nice as is possible to be, unless you hit his BerserkButton. Leliana is very sweet, and even Zevran, despite being an assassin hired to kill you, is good-natured and easygoing. Not coincidentally, they are three of the four potential love interests in the game.
** The nicest characters in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' are [[TheChick Merrill]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Varric]], mostly because Merrill doesn't really get how or why to be mean to people and Varric limits himself to poking fun.
*** Varric never goes anywhere without [[ICallItVera Bianca]], and we all know that ''she'' is as vicious as he is snarky
** There's also the PC's sister Bethany, who very much lives up to Varric's nickname for her: Sunshine. Sebastian also counts, [[spoiler:unless Anders is spared in the endgame, wherein he declares war on Kirkwall.]]
** Cassandra from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', [[GoodIsNotSoft while not apparent]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' or at the beginning of the ''Inquisition'', is loyal, fair and kind with all the companions and even an mage-friendly, atheist inquisitor (if the inquisitor doesn't attack her belief in offensive ways she still declares her friendship and swore loyalty to him/her), almost all her banters with other companions include at least one moment when she tries to understand their point of view, and even apologies in name of the Chantry and the templars for their actions, she also fast in try to undo any offense to other companions (for example, when she ask about Bianca to Varric, she reveals her own situation about Galyan). Even though the Inquisition is her work she has no interest in gaining any power herself as she only wants to help people something that Solas find admirable and unbelievable.
** If Leliana is faking it then it's damn good act, throughout the first game she is unfailingly polite and civil, however this takes a somewhat dark turn during her side quest in that she is this way to escape her former life as a trickster assassin. In the second game she can actually encounter Hawke and despite her and Cassandra being desperate for them she doesn't press Hawke into helping them. Even as Sister Nightingale investigating the Chantry's destruction she's more after the truth than the angry Cassandra, and her dark persona is now a mask for the nice girl she is underneath with her tactics straight from the GoodIsNotSoft playbook.
** By ''Inquisition'', [[TookALevelInKindness Cullen]] has very much become one, having let go of his [[FantasticRacism past grudge against mages]] and is completely loyal even to a mage Inquisitor and good friends with Dorian. [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan Fittingly enough, the third game also made him a romance option, much to his fanbase's delight]].
** The aforementioned Dorian, despite being a Tevinter mage, as well as [[TheFace Josephine]] also count. Both are unfailingly helpful and again, are romance options.
** And of course, it is possible to play the protagonists of all three of these games as Nice Guys/Girls, depending on your choices.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** Cecil Harvey of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'', at least once he gets over his [[TheAtoner massive guilt issues]] over being a Dark Knight.
** Bartz from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' is one of the few protagonists in the series who is just nice, with no underlying issues or moments of {{Jerkass}}ery. He's caring towards his fellow Light Warriors, very easygoing, and acts as a [[BigBrotherInstinct brother figure]] to Krile [[spoiler:when Galuf dies and she takes his place]].
** Zack Fair, from the ''Final Fantasy VII'' prequel ''VideoGame/CrisisCore''. He's upbeat, sincere, utterly loyal, completely {{adorkable}}, and just wants to be a hero (in the very best sense of the word). Because of this, he manages to make friends with practically everyone he encounters, including ShrinkingViolet Cloud, the Turks and pre-Nibelheim Sephiroth. Contrast to how Cloud, the main character of ''Final Fantasy VII'', starts out ''his'' story as a vain, arrogant, apathetic asshole who deliberately antagonises his employers, and earns either fawning admiration or loathing from everyone around him until he grows up a little.
* GenkiGirl Moira from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' is one of the few people in the game that is not an obnoxious asshole who urges you to kill him, also, most ghouls in their town.
** Of course, during her sidequest, she pretty much encourages you to expose yourself to near fatal amounts of radiation, and severely injure yourself. [[ForScience All in the name of research, of course]] (though she at least has the decency to patch you up afterwards.) And you don't actually HAVE to do it, you can instead just crush her dreams and leave her horribly depressed. Or you can nuke her hometown and leave her as a radioactive ghoul... YouBastard.
** Paladin Hoss is genuinely grateful to a Good Karma Lone Wanderer who helps him out, giving praise and promising protection.
* Atrus from ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' is friendly, helpful, peace-loving, wise and sensible. Contrast his father and his sons, who are megalomaniacs and violent.
* Guy from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is charming, laid-back, patient, and mature. In a world where all major characters have DarkAndTroubledPast, he is the only one who manages to move on and thus grows up to be genuinely cheerful and all around pleasant simply rather than becoming jerkass, angsty, suicidal or omnicidal like the other characters (except Mieu). Other characters and especially [[ChickMagnet girls]] notice, lampshade, and take advantage of his nice guy qualities though, [[AllergicToLove much to his chagrin]].
* A GenderFlip example: Flonne from ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' is the kindest and most caring angel you'll ever meet [[LoveFreak talking about love]].
** And from the same guys who made ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', [[AllLovingHero Marona]] from ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave'' is this trope taken UpToEleven.
* Stefan Bekowsky from ''VideoGame/LANoire'' is this compared to the rest of Cole's partners, who are a (somewhat loveable) sexist, a despicable SmugSnake, and a WW1 vet with an initially abrasive attitude. Bekowsky himself? His worst flaw is occasionally flirting with female victims.
* Link from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' franchise mixes this up with HeroicMime.
* Stocke from ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria''. [[TheStoic He may not be the most demonstrative of Nice Guys]], but one of the required sidequests for OneHundredPercentCompletion and the GoldenEnding? Helping a little girl play dress-up.
* Tails of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is easily one of the nicest characters in the cast, and is even perfectly alright with accepting [[BigBad Eggman]] as a friend if he doesn't have an evil scheme at the moment.
** Cream the Rabbit is also very friendly, befriending the formerly distant Blaze the Cat, which allowed her to start working with Sonic and avert a multi-dimensional calamity.
** Sonic himself is a very kind person - a bit rude at times, but it's more playful than anything else. He's selfless, very much so; going out of his way to help people and not really desiring anything for himself but to help people, have his friends be happy, and eat chili dogs.
* Similarly, Mario and Luigi from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''. They're very open, compliment people they're competing against, and overall help anybody with a problem they can solve... Which is ''everybody''.
** In ''Mario Party 3'', Star Stamps reflect the character's personality. Luigi can get the Kindness Stamp along with most of the other Stamps.
*** Even though Donkey Kong is a pain in the arse for Mario in ''VideoGame/MarioVsDonkeyKong'', when Donkey Kong starts sobbing because he can't get his hands on any of the toys, Mario just says, "It's OK, don't cry!"
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has played merry hell with this trope.
** Isaac was openly identified as a NiceGuy by the [[AllThereInTheManual extras for the first game]], since he's a HeroicMime in that one. Then in ''The Lost Age'', he got to speak for himself, and [[GoodIsNotNice he was good, but not very nice]]. The shift might be justified by all the crap he went through in the first game and the pressure he's still under in TLA, but it was still pretty jarring to a lot of players.
** Ivan was identified as a sweet kid, but had some issues with MindOverManners even in the first game, which he was even called out on.
** Mia has a little bit of DeadpanSnarker, but is mostly a gentle WhiteMagicianGirl and the first truly nice player character in the series. Her EstablishingCharacterMoment is healing an elderly couple, she quickly puts her trust in Isaac's group despite the doubtful circumstances of their meeting, and her most aggressive moment is even fully merited - revulsion with her cousin, Alex, upon realising the extent of his betraying their Clan's ideals.
** Piers in ''The Lost Age'' is probably the first genuinely nice ''male'' player character. He's initially standoffish due to some trust issues, but once he {{defrost|ingIceQueen}}s, he is quite mellow and gentle. Heck, his EstablishingCharacterMoment scene even has him try to comfort and empathize with an abuser, and mentally kicking himself after he's been driven to lash out with his Psynergy.
** ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'''s Matthew is generally held to be a sweet guy, though being as he is the son of the aforementioned Isaac and [[SymbolSwearing a known pottymouth]], this might need to be taken with a grain of salt.
** Amiti, on the other hand, is completely transparent, and ''[[SpoiledSweet pure sugar]]''. Even to the nation presently at war with his - he's just ''that'' nice. It's a genuinely shocking moment when he first voices [[BlackAndWhiteMorality his opinions on criminal justice]], and even then, he calms down after a gentle reprimand and a reminder of what's at stake.
** Sveta of Morgal is so far the straightest example of this trope (even though she's not human, but a [[CuteMonsterGirl Beastwoman]]. She leads the party despite only just meeting them, helps them even when their goals come into opposition with her country's leader, Volechek [[spoiler:(who is also her brother)]], protects the lives of people to be executed as part of her country's festival, and does her part to save not just her own people but the whole world. She's also an ActionGirl who ''isn't'' passive-aggressive, and recognises that [[spoiler:she can't leave the Grave Eclipse running for a second even though it would ''kill'' her brother, because to do so would only kill more innocent people.]]
* There are bunch of this in ''Franchise/MetalGear'', to contrast the {{Badass}} warriors you meet and play as. [[BreakTheCutie Bad things]] [[KillTheCutie tends to happen]] [[StartOfDarkness to them]], to show us that WarIsHell. For examples:
** Dr. Petrovich Madnar, who is a scientist and family man. He was forced to build TX-55 because his daughter is being held hostage.
** Gustava Heffner, who joined Czechoslovakia Secret Police to atone, after she denied asylum.
** Hal "Otacon" Emmerich. A nerdy otaku, kind, believes in people. He only worked on Metal Gear REX because he thought it was an anti-nuke weapon.
** Dr. Nikolai Sokolov. He only built the Shagohod under Volgin's threat, and he's a loyal family man.
** The Sorrow. He willingly died so that his lover and child could survive. He did mess with Naked Snake, but he also kept giving hints to him during the game.
** Naked Snake [[spoiler:aka. Big Boss]] is arguably one, or at least as nice as Black Ops operatives can be. [[spoiler:Well, until [[StartOfDarkness he learn]] [[AwfulTruth the truth]] [[FakeDefector about The Boss' defection....]]]] Even then, considering his BenevolentBoss and AFatherToHisMen status...
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Rai]][[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance den]] (when he's not [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Jack]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Ripper]] at least) is friendly, laidback and a FriendToAllChildren.
** Otacon's dad, Huey Emmerich is also one. LikeFatherLikeSon, indeed. [[spoiler: Subverted horribly in VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain. [[LikeFatherUnlikeSon Hal couldn't be more different from his dad]] ]]
* Mr. Torgue from the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' DLC ''Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage''.
--> "'''''[[NoIndoorVoice NOTHING IS MORE BADASS THAN TREATING A WOMAN WITH RESPECT.]]'''''"
* Similarly, ''GearsOfWar'' has, most notably, Dom Santiago, all three Carmine brothers shown, and Cole, of the main cast, along with Dizzy and Anya of the supporting. Baird is a DeadpanSnarker InsufferableGenius JerkWithAHeartOfGold and Protagonist Marcus is a KnightInSourArmor, stopping them from fulfilling it, along with Sam, who like Baird is too much of a DeadpanSnarker to qualify, but the above mentioned main Nice Guys, likewise, have bad things happen to them. Dom [[spoiler: lost his brother and children before the game series to the Pendulum Wars and E Day respectfully, his wife ran out and went missing, then e later found her and had to MercyKill her due to her torture leaving her catatonic. Anthony and Benjamin Carmine both died in battle, meaning Clayton lost two of his younger brothers, and Cole lost his entire family before the game, and off-camera during the opening levels also lost most of his squad.]]
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is ''rife'' with folks of decent temperament, though some take a bit of work to get through their emotional defenses. Whether it's [[HiddenHeartOfGold Ragna]], [[ChivalrousPervert Kagura]], [[WideEyedIdealist Noel, Bang]], [[GentleGiant Tager]], [[FunPersonified Makoto]] or even {{Antivillain}}s like [[ForcedIntoEvil Litchi]] and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Tsubaki]], one can find someone who can lend them a shoulder if they know how to get to them. It's not just these examples, either - generally, any named character (and even some unnamed ones) are people you won't be blamed for wanting to hang around with unless they go by the names [[AxCrazy Yuuki]] [[{{Troll}} Terumi]], [[ArchnemesisDad Relius]] [[MadScientist Clover]], [[PuppetKing Imperator Librarius]], or [[BloodKnight Azrael]].
** From the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' games, Axl Low is a British [[UnstuckInTime involuntary time traveller]] who nevertheless maintains a very friendly and optimistic attitude despite his circumstances and never holds any grudges against the various weirdos he winds up fighting due to one reason or another, always chalking the encounter up to bad luck. He's even nice enough to maintain friendly speaking terms with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold anti-social wanderer]] Sol Badguy, and offers to lend him his Music/{{Queen}} CD. There's also [[CulturedBadass Slayer]], who is incredibly civil and polite to practically everybody, even his opponents, what with being a quintessential gentleman and [[ILetYouWin them having no realistic chance of actually hurting him]] - he even hands out hints to random people for no reason beyond seemingly just wanting to be helpful (such as the time he informed Ky that there was something seriously wrong with the bounty on Dizzy despite having no reason to care about either of them).
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' has Leon S. Kennedy; rookie cop, first day on the job, and is thrown into a ZombieApocalypse. He devotes his strength in getting Ben (a reporter) out to safety and making sure Ada is out of harm's way (even taking a bullet for her). This gets Leon viewed as naive and gullible by the other characters in the game; Ben thinks Leon is just a cop who doesn't know what's really going on (Ben gets killed later on) and Ada sees Leon as dead weight to her mission (at first). Even Claire tends to ignore Leon at times. Leon becomes a DeadpanSnarker by ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', but never gives up in trying to help and protect others.
** Addressed in the novels: When Ada attempts to flirt with him he admits he's scared and [[IgnoreTheFanservice ignores the fanservice]] before saying he just wants to be a good cop. She's duly impressed.
* Most of the younger female cast members of the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series are pleasant and good people (Sakura, Ibuki, and Elena especially- Elena's ending in SF4 shows that she somehow managed to make friends with ''Akuma''!). This is why Juri's introduction in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Super Street Fighter IV]]'' was such a shocking contrast, because up to then Capcom had never introduced a female fighter who ''wasn't'' a NiceGirl (Juli and Juni in ''Alpha 3'' were antagonistic characters but [[BrainwashedAndCrazy only against their will]]; Chun-Li, Viper, and Cammy are determined, focused, and somewhat militant but also good-aligned characters).
* Giorno proves he is as sweet and kind as his biological father Jonathan in the "what if" DLC scenario for ''Vento Aureo'' in ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle''. [[spoiler: Fugo found out about the deaths of Narancia and Buccerati after his cowardly abandonment of his friends at San Marco Cathedral in Venice. Blaming himself, he comes before Giorno, now the Boss of the Italian Mafia, and begs to be taken back into the family. Giorno summons the Godlike Gold-Experience-Requiem and challenges Fugo to prove his dedication by defeating him in this state. If you somehow win this fight, Girono reveals that he holds no grudges for your betrayal, and embraces you once more as as friend. To this Fugo furiously wept ManlyTears, and this time pledges his "body, heart and soul" to Giorno for life.]] Just like his father Jonathan, Giorno is kindness personified.
* VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends:
** [[PlanetOfHats This trope is the most defining characteristic of many yordles]]:
*** Kennen from the Kinkou Order. Justfied as he's "TheHeart of the Tempest". Heck, he's even willing to forgive Zed as well.
*** Teemo happens to be a very friendly yordle scout. May overlap of BewareOfTheNiceOnes since he can be a cold-blooded assassin when on-duty.
*** Gnar is a playful prehistoric yordle who is a kind and friendly guy at heart and befriends people easily who are friendly and playful towards him. Hence, this is one of the main reasons why he manages to befriend [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Lulu]]. [[BewareOfTheNiceOnes Just don't piss him off or you'll face Mega Gnar]].
*** Lulu as well. According to the developers, Lulu is a relatively friendly and kind-hearted yordle at heart and is willing to make friends who are kind, playful, and friendly. Apparently, this is one of the main reasons why she gets along with Gnar pretty well. She also was quick to acknowledge that she did bad things without realizing it when the Yordles got angry at her turning their kids into animals or plants even if temporarily and without malice, and accepted the banishment without much protest.
** Zac was designed by Zaun's [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]], originally as a super soldier, where is taken care by two-caring husband-and-wife scientists as their own child. Despite all the trauma and the original purpose of Zac, he's happen to a nice guy at heart who serves as a defender of the helpless and the innocent.
** [[GentleGiant Braum]] is so far the [[JustForPun champion]] of NiceGuy in Runeterra. Not only his quotes are all nice, friendly and encouraging even to his enemies, his play style revolve around defending his teammates and helping them out. His lore has zero tragic elements as well, he just happens to be that kind of nice goat herder with immense strength, determination to help people in need. [[MommasBoy And he quotes his mom's words very fondly.]]
*** His introductory video features his intervening to [[FriendToAllLivingThings save a poro]] from a hail of arrows.
* Your partner in each game of the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' series is always one of the brightest, most positive characters in the story, and they make that immediately apparent by how readily they decide to befriend and look out for the hero just moments after they meet.
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity Gates To Infinity]]'' has a rather unexpected example in the form of [[spoiler: Hydreigon]], who's instantly likable from the moment you meet him in person, having a polite and kindly manner that runs entirely contrary to what one might expect from [[AlwaysChaoticEvil a member of his species]].
* Thomas from SuikodenIII
* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series, being a classic SwordsAndSorcery setting, has quite a lot of these:
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'', both the protagonist Marth, and his childhood friend and LoveInterest Shiida/Caeda, fit this to a T. Both are somewhat subdued, yet charismatic leaders who firmly believe in peace; Marth is extremely forgiving by nature despite what he endures, and Caeda recruits many former enemies simply by being kind to them.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', over a couple of generations of heroes:
*** The three Lords of ''Blazing Sword'' are all this to some degree or another. Lyn is a deeply kind person who never stops trying to help people in spite of her own problems, and her empathy generally only fails her with outlaws in general - due to a traumatic event in her past involving bandits, but she's able to learn to see the good in them as well - and villainous people in general. Eliwood, like his son Roy (below), is very astute and willing to see the good in people, doesn't allow himself to truly hate his enemies but pity them, and deeply dislikes the ramifications of war on innocents (it's noted by Nils that his father, Lord Elbert was very much alike, if more forceful and decisive). Finally Hector, while somewhat rude at times and abrasive (which makes him seem like a jerk), is very loyal to his friends and more soft-hearted than he's given credit for, to the point his friends like to tease him for his lack of tact contrasting with his inner kindness.
*** Wil, one of the most easy-going members of the army, is very easy to like and be friends with; he also reaches out to befriend people like Florina (who is timid around men in general) and Raven (who is aloof and cynical) and is good at bringing them out of their shells. And when he's confronted with past mistakes, he owns up to them instead of making excuses.
*** Canas, a scholar who studies Dark Magic but insists it's only as evil as its practitioner, is highly passionate about his studies and curious - a little absent-minded at times, but always well-meaning and polite.
*** Legault, perhaps the most personable agent of the Black Fang - he defects after the Fang's falling moral standards are irrevocably corrupted, joining Eliwood's forces when convinced they are in the right, and is kind to those he interacts with. He's also an HonoraryUncle to Nino, who is at ease with his pleasantness.
*** Nino stands out for being cheery and friendly despite being raised by an abusive mother [[spoiler:who actually adopted her, begrudgingly, after murdering her actual blood parents]], inciting protectiveness in those around her and in general not having a bad bone in her body despite her hardships. She's too empathetic for being in the Fang, and only shows anger at the pain others cause (to her and her friends).
*** Roy in ''The Sealed Sword'' follows his father's example in being kind and personable with people (if a bit sharper of mind and GenreSavvy).
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'':
*** The twin royals of Renais, Eirika and Ephraim, are kind people who only express it differently - Eirika rarely says a bad thing about anyone and values peace and friendship, Ephraim is refreshingly honest and empathetic (even giving an apparent enemy, who tripped while trying to attack him, pointers on how to better use her weapon). Both are willing to do the difficult things necessary, but neither truly enjoy it despite the former's anger at injustice and the latter's love for combat.
*** Franz, as well as his older brother Forde - both are friendly, easygoing men who treat their comrades well and easily form strong bonds (Franz with Amelia and Natasha, as well as an IntergenerationalFriendship with Gilliam; Forde with his comrade Kyle, and also with Vanessa & Eirika). Both offer their time freely and with a smile, and neither takes kindness in general for granted (especially as Forde raised his brother from a young age).
*** Joshua, a laid-back mercenary of Jehanna who loves to gamble, is unwilling to harm women or other innocents (even rigging coin tosses despite his already-dreadful luck) and appears drawn to befriending people who are cold, aloof or broken. He also [[spoiler:ran from his responsibilities as prince of Jehanna, but only so as to better understand his people and be a better King in the future]], and his serious side shows all measures of his sincerity of character.
*** Tana, the upbeat princess of Frelia, who puts herself at risk to help her friends and is startlingly willing to die for doing the right thing (in one route, offering to let a conflicted Cormag kill her if he spares Duessel in return).
*** Gerik, an uncommonly-kind mercenary leader who treats his fellow soldiers well and is unashamed to be unorthodox in his line of work. Notable because as a young man he was once brash and arrogant, but after losing a duel to someone out of his league (who left him his signature scar), he learned humility and to treasure both his own life and those of his comrades. Both women in his troop, Tethys and Marisa, are drawn to him for his compassionate nature.
** Several of the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius''.
*** Ike is one of the least judgmental and most empathetic people alive. He's considered to be an exceptionally kind beorc by most if not all laguz who know him. Soren, who doesn't like ''anyone'' else, [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe practically worships him for how nice he was in the past]].
*** Oscar is easy-going and polite to everyone even when they annoy him. He's also remarkably self-effacing for [[TheAce all his talents]].
*** Rhys consistently shows great concern even for complete strangers and never bickers with anyone, even when they're pulling dangerous stunts.
*** Zihark is friendly to all the people he meets, and is only willing to criticize others' behavior when it starts hurting other people. He doesn't even have the heart to directly reject [[HopelessSuitor Meg]].
*** Ranulf is an easy-going egalitarian who quickly becomes very chummy with Ike for this reason.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''
*** Chrom, the game's protagonist, is extremely trusting towards his friends, and never lets up an occasion to help them.
*** This is generally the Avatar's personality in the game. [[spoiler:[[DemonicPossession Except when possessed by Grima, of course.]]]]
*** Chrom's daughter from the future, Lucina, helps around camp on her spare time, is very supportive of her friends, and is always trying to improve herself as a leader.
*** Sumia, one of the pegasus riders, is an absolute sweetheart. She seems to care for and love everyone. Except for cows. Cows annoy her.
*** [[CreepyGood Henry]] is a twisted example. While the way he tends to act can freak people out, he genuinely likes helping people. Even if the way he goes about it is completely misguided and a little... unorthodox. Unlike the sour grape that is Tharja, the only time he places hexes on his fellow Shepherds is if they ask him to do so. He just as gladly removes them again if they request him to, with no hard feelings.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has a fairly large amount, reinforcing the NotSoDifferent aspect of Hoshido and Nohr:
*** The Avatar. They grew up surrounded by kind people (With the exception of [[{{Jerkass}} Garon]]), and is naturally kind themselves (in ''Revelations'' and ''Invisible History'' it's revealed that this is largely in part due to their father, [[spoiler:[[GreaterScopeVillain Anankos]]' [[LiteralSplitPersonality good half]]]]). The Avatar is possibly one of the kindest and most forgiving lords in the franchise, rivaling the likes of Eliwood and Marth. In their supports, the Avatar is almost always helping or playing therapist to other characters in the army, and their general attitude--when they don't feel [[TheGadfly mischievous]]--is one of politeness and humility. Xander even tells them they're too nice for their own good--and, to an extent, [[FatalFlaw he's right]]. Caeldori also sums it up well in her S support with a Male Avatar.
*** [[HumbleHero Silas]], one of the Avatar's childhood friends (whom they forgot about) is a paragon of kindness. He assures the Avatar that even if they are Hoshido's prince/princess, they're still their own person, and he constantly tries to help out others. He's TheReliableOne and often serves as a WarriorTherapist to the other characters.
*** Kaze is a calm, kind, and polite ninja. He'll join your party regardless of the player's decision. In many of his supports, he goes out of his way to help others.
*** The Avatar's elder brothers, Ryoma and Xander, both of them are surprisingly kind individuals. Ryoma's supports have a tendency to show him trying to help out others and being all-around nice, whereas Xander a calm, kind, and honest man, and raised the Avatar to be a good person at heart (it might have worked a little ''[[AllLovingHero too well]]'').
*** The Avatar's elder sisters, Hinoka and Camilla, as well. Hinoka's described as the most caring person in the army, [[EmotionalBruiser and it shows]]. Camilla, for [[BrokenBird all]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast her]] [[MyBelovedSmother issues]] is also incredibly kind and caring (especially towards the Avatar and Elise) and essentially fills the role of TeamMom on the Nohr side.
*** ''Both'' of the Avatar's [[LittleSisterHeroine youngest sisters]], Sakura (from the Hoshido side) and Elise (from the Nohr side) take this UpToEleven ([[RunningGag notice a pattern here?]]). Both of them are {{All Loving Hero}}ines, with both having unlimited kindness and compassion towards everyone regardless of someone's background. [[spoiler:[[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth It doesn't end well]] for Elise on ''Birthright''. It doesn't [[KillTheCutie end]] [[TakingTheBullet well]] [[HeroicSacrifice at]] [[SenselessSacrifice all]].]]
*** Oboro, despite her hatred towards Nohr, she can actually be a kind and reasonable girl at heart that allows her to be the TeamMom for the Hoshidan army. In addition, she also fits into the "Sweet" category should you make her the chef of your restaurant (which is also shared with Midori and Elise, both are also Nice Girls as well).
*** As befitting their RedOniBlueOni[=/=]BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine, Kaden and Keaton. The former loves helping and cheering people up with his fluffy tail, and must always return the favor whenever someone is nice to him; the latter is, despite his [[NightmareFetishist qui]][[BloodKnight rks]], an otherwise genuinely pleasant, affable guy.
*** Effie is very gentle and devoted to those she cares for, especially her lady-of-liege Elise. Effie will protect anyone who needs it with her own life, especially her friends and allies, and sometimes even sufficiently sympathetic enemies, without any regards to her own safety. In ''Revelations'', Azama pretty much calls her a MartyrWithoutACause for it, whereas Leo straight-up questions if she doesn't cherish her own life.
*** Despite his unlucky moments, Arthur, as befitting a [[LargeHam HERO OF JUSTICE]], is an upbeat and friendly guy at heart. [[spoiler:He was even willing [[TakingTheHeat to get himself punished just to protect Azura]] back [[WiseBeyondTheirYears when he was a child/young teenager]].]]
*** [[AxCrazy Peri]] is ''Fates''' answer to Henry. When she's not in her AxCrazy persona, she comes off as genuinely saccharine and friendly, with incidents such as happily cooking for people like Laslow and Kaze. Generally speaking, if you're her friend, you're safe. It even shows through in her A Support with Felicia after she tries to kill the poor maid [[DisproportionateRetribution for spilling tea on her]]. Peri asks Felicia to train the servants in Peri's household because it's [[BloodKnight no fun killing them if they can't fight back]].
*** [[FaceOfAThug Benny]]. Despite his intimidating appearance, he's a genuinely sweet guy. He's noted to always be thinking of his comrades, whom he easily towers over. Additionally, he's a FriendToAllLivingThings, including ''bears''.
*** The Avatar's child, Kana, of either gender, just like their parent. Female Kana is a bit more immature about it than Male Kana, but nonetheless both are as kindhearted as the Avatar.
*** Shigure, in contrast to his mother Azura's [[NotGoodWithPeople anti-social]] tendencies is very helpful, kind, compassionate and willing to listen to other's issues.
*** Dwyer, again unlike his [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold father Jakob]], is despite his lazy, apathetic attitude, a genuinely nice and caring person as shown in many of his supports, though he apparently doesn't ''like'' being told he's nice.
*** Midori, [[RunningGag like her father Kaze]] is unfailingly nice, kind and sweet to others.
*** Kiragi, in contrast to his father Takumi, is [[{{Keet}} excitable]], incredibly friendly and open.
*** Hisame has many of his supports feature him trying to help out whoever he's talking to, even the odder girls like [[StalkerWithACrush Rhajat]] and [[MsImagination Ophelia]].
*** Siegbert is a near-carbon-copy of his father Xander, right down to the calm, kind and honest personality.
*** Forrest, in contrast to his father [[SugarAndIcePersonality Leo]], is an all-around sweet guy.
*** Percy, just like his father Arthur, is a very open and a friendly kid at heart.
* Jorji Costava from ''VideoGame/PapersPlease''. During the game, you will have to reject or detain him several times (and he's completely understanding and cordial during these,) and there only are two occasions in which he is actually clear to go. But even if you reject him in those occasions, he will still direct you to a forger that can help you flee Arstotzka, should you need to.
* ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2'' gives us Nepgear, a CPU Candidate that is so kind that she even [[ApologizesALot over apologize the tiniest things]].
* VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs gives us a [[TheParagon very]] [[AFatherToHisMen true]] [[AGodIAmNot to]] [[TheAce form]] {{Superman}} (the good one from the Main Universe anyway). [[KnightTemplar His Regime!Counterpart]] on the [[{{Jerkass}} other]] [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope hand...]]
* Aisha Blanchette from ''VideoGame/Macross30TheVoiceThatConnectsTheGalaxy''. She is [[GenkiGirl pretty much never down]], and is often able to cheer up Mina just by being in the same room.
* ProfessorLayton is a BadassPacifist, a DotingParent, and an all-around NiceGuy.
* Mega Man Volnutt from ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' is probably one of the nicest protagonists of the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' series. A defining trait about Mega Man is how nice and heroic he is. In the first game alone, he can donate to the town reconstruction fund, save a pregnant woman lost in the woods that goes into labor, donate to the hospital to help heal a crippled girl's leg, help the police with their cases, and of course, stop the Bonnes from causing chaos.
* Welkin Gunther of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' is a quiet, sweet-hearted guy who likes nature and just wants to live a quiet life as a teacher. When TheEmpire invades Gallia, he becomes the leader of the Squad 7 militia force and quickly organises the ragtag unit into the single most powerful force in the Gallian military. He follows orders dutifully, doesn't commit war crimes, and is courteous and merciful even to his opponents. [[spoiler:[[BewareTheNiceOnes Just make sure you don't shoot his girlfriend]]]].
* You'd be surprised, but Connor Kenway of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' is, despite [[ProfessionalKiller his profession]], a genuinely lovely young man. He's meek, he's idealistic, he's kind to animals, and he's passionate about making sure anyone he considers a friend is happy and well looked after regardless of their station or societal relationship with him. Now, [[VillainProtagonist compare]] [[{{Jerkass}} and]] [[OnlyInItForTheMoney contrast]] with [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag his grandfather]]...
* Samuels of ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'' is extremely polite and helpfully subservient to, well, just about everybody. [[spoiler:This is [[{{Foreshadowing}} the player's first clue]] to the fact that there's something not quite normal about him.]]
* Papyrus from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. Despite his massive ego and desire to capture the player so he can become a member of the royal guard, he honestly does grow to like the player and cares about them to the point that he insists on taking them alive even though they're going to be executed anyway. Try to insult him in battle and he simply interprets it as a front hiding a much nicer person who just needs to be warmed up to; do it after battle and he thinks you're insulting ''yourself''. After his fight (if the player manages to spare him) he can be befriended into helping them on their journey and trying to stop Undyne from killing them, and will even try to get the two to become friends if Undyne is spared as well. Even if the player is a genocidal monster, he refuses to believe that there isn't some good to be found in them [[spoiler: even if the player kills him.]] Undyne eventually admits that while Papyrus is more than skilled enough to be a member of the Royal Guard, he's ultimately just too nice to handle the responsibilities.
** His older brother, Sans, is a ([[LazyBum really]]) easygoing and funny guy who treats the Human Child like an old buddy. [[spoiler:That is except for one part where he invites the player to lunch to [[MoodWhiplash curtly inform them that if not for a promise to Toriel not to harm you, he would've killed you the minute he met you.]] Given how he knows about the save system, it's quite likely his friendly attitude is an insurance policy to make a potentially murderous player think twice about going through with it.]]
* The [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}} Sole Survivor]]'s personality defaults to this, being possibly one of the nicest Franchise/{{Fallout}} protagonists to appear so far. The [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}} Lone Wanderer]] and [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Courier]] [[VillainProtagonist can be played as absolute monsters]], but the absolute worst the Sole Survivor can be a is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who travels around helping people but keeps hitting them up for money and occasionally being a DeadpanSnarker. Picking the bottom options consistently leads to an almost superhumanly friendly personality.
** All of the Good-aligned companions qualify, naturally. Preston Garvey maintains a professional soldierly demeanour and is a textbook OfficerAndAGentleman, Deacon is laid-back and very cool guy with a breezy atiitude, Curie is unflinchingly polite and approves of noble actions, and Piper is playful, easy to get along with and passionate about helping the people of the Commonwealth.
* Nakoruru from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' is a very gentle girl.
