[[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''

You know when someone is said to be InLoveWithLove? These people take it to a ''literal'' level.

The Love Freak is obsessed with the very concept of love. Often spouting dialogue about ThePowerOfLove and [[ForGreatJustice justice]], this character is [[WideEyedIdealist naive]] and [[TheDitz lacks common sense]]; her ([[WomenAreDelicate its usually a her]]) {{determinat|or}}ion is usually the only thing keeping her from being completely incompetent (even if she is potentially very powerful).

How satirically this character is portrayed depends on the mood and personality of the lead, although writers typically 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. Occasionally, she may even ''be'' the KnightTemplar whos determined to spread love around the world [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans at]] [[TheUnfettered any]] [[BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood cost]]. Worst case scenario, shes an outright {{hypocrite}} [[HeWhoFightsMonsters whos just as sneaky and/or outright violent as the wickedness she supposedly fights.]]

See also ThePollyanna, NaiveEverygirl, StupidGood. Occasionally has problems if they're forced to be a ReluctantWarrior.

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



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
%%* Hotaru from ''Manga/DotHackLegendOfTheTwilight''.
%%* Haiji from ''Manga/AiKora''.
* Akari from ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'' fits this trope like a single glove, though ''the entire show itself'' could also be argued to qualify.
* 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!!
* ''America'' from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' 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?
* 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.
* 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.
* Bojiggler from ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' 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!''
* From the same creator comes [[spoiler:Saika]] of ''LightNovel/{{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.]]
* 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 ''Manga/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.
* Albert from ''Anime/{{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...
* Winner Sinclair from ''Manga/{{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.
* Yuuri from ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'', 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.
* Miss Crangela from {{Manhwa/LetDai}} is quite a realistic example.
* [[spoiler:Shinka]] in the animated version of ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'' 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.
* In ''LightNovel/MagiciansAcademy'', 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.]]
* ''Manga/{{Magikano}}'''s dirt-poor, oblivious witch hunter, Marin.
* In ''Anime/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}}.
* Might Guy of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is perpetually ranting about love and springtime and [[HotBlooded passionate, flaming youth]] (In a completely non-sexual way, believe it or not), and is eagerly imitated by his [[BadassNormal star pupil, Rock Lee]]. He even persuades said student to undergo a risky operation by promising to 'follow' him if he doesn't survive. Then they tearfully embrace.
* Ai Tanabe from ''Manga/{{Planetes}}'' always preaches about love and kindness to others. Appropriately enough, [[MeaningfulName her first name]] means "love" in Japanese.
* 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.
* An itinerant P.E. teacher in a filler episode in the ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' anime.
* 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.''
* [[ThePollyanna Fuura Kafuka]] from ''Manga/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.]]
* Kazehana, from ''Manga/{{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.
* El in ''Manga/ShugoChara'' is a prime example, making speeches about love whenever she possibly can.
* President Lory Takarada of ''Manga/SkipBeat'' 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.
* Princess Amelia in ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' is probably the best example from that series. Her love of justice became such a defining trait in the anime and early manga that, for a while, she became reviled by a lot of fans.
** With her father, Prince Phil, being an ''even more'' over-the-top gender-flipped version.
* Vash in ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''. ''"My name is Vash the Stampede. I am a hunter of peace, chasing the elusive mayfly known as love..."'' Cue BishieSparkle. Unfortunately, it's really part of his StepfordSmiler facade.
** [[{{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!!
* 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.
* 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.
* Strike Man from ''Manga/YoureUnderArrest'' really ''is'' incompetent, and is played for laughs.
* 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.

* The children of Aphrodite in ''Literature/{{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.]]
* [[TheOphelia Marianne Engel]] from ''Literature/TheGargoyle'':
-->This Christmas Day had shown me that Marianne Engel's love was not feeble. It was strapping, it was muscular, it was massive. I thought that it could fill the entire hospital. More important, her love was not reserved only for me; it was shared generously with strangers people she didn't think were friends from the fourteenth century.
%% * Jessamine Lovelace from ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices'', wants someone to take her away from the Institute.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{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}}''.

%%* Christian, the lead in ''Film/MoulinRouge''.

* Hope from ''Theatre/{{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: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 an Archangel herself]].
** In one of the alternate endings in Disgaea D2, she has so much love that she unleashes some sort of ultimate love attack and causes Barbara to retreat out of inability to fight the love. Unfortunately, she can't stop causing whatever effect she's making, resulting in unleashing so much angelic power and love that she accidentally turns the entire Netherworld into a second Celestia (think "Heaven"). Not only does this entirely negate every single thing the main characters were working for, but it results in Flonne personally apologizing to every demon in the Netherworld...while still trying to promote love to them.
** It's implied that Laharl and Sicily's mother, the Queen, was a LoveFreak herself before she died. According to Laharl and Etna, she would give her son lectures on love that were similar to Flonne's. The reason Laharl is so obstinate when it comes to love, or even any positive feelings, is because of her HeroicSacrifice.
* Kim Kaphwan of the ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/GrandiaIII'', as shown in [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/02/22/ this]] ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' strip.
* Fenthick in the first chapter of ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/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 [[VideoGame/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 super move ''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.
** This also comes back to bite him HARD in Dream Drop Distance. [[spoiler: The Big Bad uses their potential friendship to utterly corrupt him. Sora gets better. Maybe.]]
*** 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 ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''.
* Polka from ''VideoGame/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 Franchise/{{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, the incredibly rare Pokémon 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 later.
* While she does not preach to others, the ever-cheerful Milfie from ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' 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 ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoIIMelodyOfMetafalica''. 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.
* Elphelt [[MeaningfulName Valentine]] from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'' is a special version of this -- a '''Wedding''' Freak. She fights in a FairytaleWeddingDress, [[ImprobableWeaponUser wields bouquets and]] [[GrievousBottleyHarm champagne bottles]] ([[TheGunslinger as well as guns]]), has attack with names like "Bridal Express", and her [[OneHitKill Insta-Kill move]] involves [[Music/BonJovi shooting the opponent through the heart]], making them sprout heart-shaped WingdingEyes before falling over. Her pre-fight quotes include such gems as "If I win, we're having a long talk about ''us''."
** She also [[WishfulProjection projects her own quirks onto everyone she meets]]: in Story Mode, she assumes that every female fighter she encounters wants to team up to find love, and her victory animation has her pull a marriage contract out of [[VictoriasSecretCompartment her considerable cleavage]] and present it to her fallen opponent, claiming that (if male) they promised to marry her if she won the fight or (if female) they promised to hook her up with one of their male friends. She also has elements of CovertPervert, seen in her victory animation when she starts imagining her wedding night and falls over with a {{Nosebleed}}.
* From ''VideoGame/ThemsFightinHerds'': "Her name is Paprika. And she's going to kill us all." That's NotHyperbole: Paprika the Alpaca is a happy-go-lucky, ditzy alpaca whose [[AndCallHimGeorge bone-breaking hugs]] and [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom general shenanigans]] nearly lead her tribe, struggling to survive in a DeathWorld, to extinction. They eventually get rid of her by hog-tying her and sending her to the outside world as their tribe's "[[KickedUpstairs champion]]" against the returning predators.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters''
** Komari, 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.
* Nagito Komaeda from ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' is always talking at length about the power of hope over despair, and idolizing the Super High School Level students trapped on the island. [[spoiler: Hes actually a ''very'' dark example since hes also [[PsychoSupporter very much insane]] 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.)]]
* Furfur and Zepar from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''. It's worth noting that they're named for [[Literature/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.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Grace from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' gives a Love Freaky speech, before [[SubvertedTrope it is revealed she was reading it from a book]].
* 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 conscious that passion can't be archive without love and vise versa, she's getting her nose into other people's love lifes and it's determinated that Hades and Persephone consummate 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.

* Orn "Dutchy" Ayers of ''Roleplay/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 disturbing not just to [[HorrifyingTheHorror Yami]] but to the audience as well, considering [[JerkAss what regular Kaiba is]].
* Casey from [[Roleplay/MSFHighForum MSF]] [[Webcomic/MSFHighIRC High's]] forums and irc games.
* Shrignold and his peers from ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'' come off as this. They sing to Yellow Guy a song about love. [[spoiler:They're really a part of a cult where they worship Malcom, a giant stone head they see as the king of love and who gets mad if they don't feed him gravel. At first they seem to adore love in general - friendship, family, etc - however later it's shown their views on love are [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain very narrow]], referring to only romance between men and women. They try to force Yellow Guy into their cult.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* 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).
* The Franchise/CareBears are the embodiment of this trope, though Love-A-Lot Bear shows this the most.
* Heart Throb from the original ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'' cartoon.
* Optimus Prime started out like this in ''WesternAnimation/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.
* 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.
* Amore in ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub''. She is the Pixie of Love, obsessed over love and tries to push couples closer together. Plus, the name Amore means "Love" in Italian.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The eponymous character is obsessed with love, peace and other things like that, but is incredibly naïve and also a hypocrite who gets angry when someone is not "nice" or doesn't conform to her standards of "good".
* The akumatized villainess Zombizou in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' is this. She just wants everyone to get along, and she does this by blowing kisses at people, turning them into zombies who love kissing others and spread the infection this way. The result? A ZombieApocalypse-level problem for Paris.
