The titular character from has some qualities of this, fitting his role as savior of Morning Land.
Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg In , Tidus ( Dissidia: Final Fantasy Final Fantasy X) feels like this. But it's a different play on this trope — he is not overly upbeat, but when you put him with the rest of the game's cast, he is a damn good machine of mood-lightening...unless you bring up his Father, in which case he becomes a Ball of Angry Angst. Zidane ( Final Fantasy IX) counts as well, though he can occasionally get serious, and Bartz ( Final Fantasy V) rounds out the trifecta of cheerful FF heroes in the 13th Cycle. And let's not forget Vaan ( Final Fantasy XII), who would have been a fourth.
In the sequel (which does include Vaan), he ends up being pretty laid back about things, along with Laguna. When he's in battle, however, he's extremely loud, self-confident, and boisterous.
Parry Gotha in , mostly as the effect of the party talk system. He even think of his uber legendary sword as a Dragon Quest V toy.
Yes-Man of .
Fallout: New Vegas Zack Fair, the thoroughly Adorkable protagonist in the prequel Final Fantasy VII , is enthusiastic, bouncy, and friendly to the point that people start sticking him with the nickname "puppy".
Crisis Core Snow Villiers from is not a little boy at all — in fact, he's a positively huge rough-and-tumble looking guy — but he's got the personality pretty much down pat.
Final Fantasy XIII Kieran and Tormod of qualify.
Fire Emblem , Inazuma Eleven Endou Mamoru is probably the happiest of the major heroes in the Raimon Academy and Inazuma Japan National. His happy trait and Heroic Spirit are what drive the team to victory. Moreover, he almost never angst after the first game.
: Surprisingly, Pit, to the point that even when the game gets dark and serious, he's incredibly difficult to take seriously.
Kid Icarus Sora, of the series can be relentlessly cheerful. He pretty much has to be to be able to keep up with a pair of classic Kingdom Hearts Toons as his sidekicks.
Ventus is just as adorable and cheerful as Sora, but in less of a "hyperactive puppy" kind of way and more of a down-to-earth, gently smiling fashion.
Cloud Cuckoo Lander Ellis from is a Keet, though a toned-down, Southern version.
Left 4 Dead 2 Arguably Louis from the original is another, perpetually optimistic flavor of keet, always hopeful, trying to keep the team's spirits up and looking at the bright side of things in the middle of a Left 4 Dead Zombie Apocalypse.
Conrad Verner from , a hyperactive, hyperenthusiastic Mass Effect Fanboy who keeps trying to impress Shepard. If you're not careful in dealing with him, his enthusiasm can get him killed.
Claus from . Mother 3 For the single chapter he's alive, that is.
Teddie from . Tiny, loud, hyper, cheerful and the instigator of most of the homosexual things in the game.
Persona 4 More so then his anime counterpart, Barry/Pearl/Damion from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.
Pokémon Griff Simmons from the SSX Series fits well into this.
: Charmy Bee fits perfectly into this trope, as he is often energetic, playful, and very scatterbrained. Of course, his constant buzzing can be annoying sometimes.
Sonic the Hedgehog : Mario definitely fits as one of these, with his cheerful YAHOOs and WAHAHAHAs.
Super Mario Bros. Mao from is an Tales of Rebirth Adorably Precocious Child who seems to be always ready to lighten up the mood.
Fast talkin', skull bashin', cola swillin' Scout, from . Short, shrill, and hyper to the point of infuriating? You betta believe it pal! Obviously, he is also Team Fortress 2 far more violent than most Keets — a trait that gets lost when he's subjected to Wimpification, as he frequently is.
In most of his incarnations, Link is a rather serious young person. By contrast, Link is cheerful, upbeat, and downright silly at times. He can still go toe to toe with the baddest of the bad, but he was also once turned into a human pancake.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker's Cadet Ellis (no relation to the Ellis above) from . Vindictus Makes it all the more of a
Player Punch when he eagerly runs off to prove himself and gets brutally killed by a giant goblin.
