Nice Guy / Visual Novels

  • Masayuki in A Profile is so nice that it unnerves some of his friends and classmates.
  • Tsukihime's Tohno Shiki is a decent, compassionate guy. Don't fuck with him or he'll make you Deader Than Dead. Or for that matter, fuck him. Dude's a living aversion of Good People Have Good Sex. His niceness was most likely a result of a traumatic incident where he almost died so now he ended up appreciating life more.
    • Shiki is more of an average guy then a real nice guy. Sure he'll risk his neck to rid of a killer if he feels its within his power (or if he's force to) and he'll put on a smile for you but in truth, he don't really care all that much for some strangers. For example: When he first heard of the murders his thought process was: Must suck for the victims; oh well, nothing I can do, on with life. He also admits when helping Arcueid that he's not really doing it to help the city, he's helping her because he wants to help her. Guess he's one of those "fake nice guys" the guy above was talking about; definitely a nice guy but not a saint.
      • On the other hand, regarding strangers, when he was facing Nrvnqsr Chaos, witnessing the latter interrupting their confrontation to murder and devour a bypasser who had nothing to do with anything, for no reason whatsoever, was what got him out of being afraid of the monster, and replaced the fear with hatred and anger.
    • On the female end Hisui is the only Heroine who doesn't actively do anything that endangers Shiki's health mental or otherwise jokes about her bad cooking aside.
  • Fate/stay night's Emiya Shirou is considerate, slightly overprotective, thoughtful and an amazing Supreme Chef.
  • In Lux-Pain, out of all of Atsuki's new friends, Ryo fits the definition and is well known for being the nicest guy at Kisaragi High School because he's so helpful. Of course, he's a character that you don't want to anger but his annoyance is always justified. And of course, his nice guy attitude is what attracts the ladies and his best friend Hibiki. He's also the Team Dad of the group.
    • Yayoi is the nice girl of the group always worrying about everyone's safety and like Ryo, she's the Team Mom of the group.
  • Hideyoshi of Umineko: When They Cry is... pretty normal compared to the rest of the cast. And nice too, seeing how he's always trying to calm down fights, though he ended up having no real development during the series to the chagrin of many fans.
    • According to Episode 1, all he wanted was a family that would accept him because his died during World War II.
    • To further shove this in your face, he has one of the lowest survival rates in the series, while his wife Eva (who adores him) has the highest and is one of the few who escapes from Rokkenjima. And after he kicks it, she horribly snaps. EVERY time.. Owwwwch.
    • Played with for George as he used to be one in the most unflattering sense possible, which Shannon teases him about even now. He's now closer to the genuine article, though probably not as much as he thinks; some of the things he says and does, like his inner thoughts about how he enjoys "playing with Shannon's feelings" as much as he likes and his proposal to her in EP 1 ("Accept this ring, that's an order"), still tend to come across as condescending.
  • Danganronpa series have two examples:
    • Makoto Naegi (the SHSL Hope) from the first Danganronpa visual novel falls into this. He's the most kindhearted character and he can get along with everyone, including Celes and Togami (who are very difficult to socialize with). Even some of the most inapproachable classmates can be befriended by him in free time events.
    • Sonia Nevermind (the SHSL Princess) from the sequel Super Dangan Ronpa 2. She's polite and charming and gets along well with everyone, and she doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Which is probably why she's one of the few students who survives the entire game; she provokes no one into killing her and she never has any desire to kill anyone so she isn't executed. Though it raises the question of how she, along with the rest of her classmates, fell into Enoshima's despair.
  • Akane in Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors is a sweet Ill Girl who is very concerned for everyone's safety. Nope. That's all a front, and she's the one who set up the game, kidnapped all the players, and orchestrated the murders of three people. Being kidnapped and almost burned to death nine years previously by Hongou turned her into quite the Magnificent Bastard.
  • Luna in Virtue's Last Reward is a sweet, pacifistic girl. It's not a trick, even though the game wants you to think so. In the AB game, she never chooses betray. Pretty interesting too, considering that she's a GAULEM, and yet is so much more "human" than the rest of the participants.
  • Riki of Little Busters!, in complete contrast to every other Key/Visual Arts protagonist, all various levels of Jerk with a Heart of Gold. While Riki can be quite snarky mentally and often plays Straight Man to characters he's sure can take it, he's extremely kind and unjudgmental and will always do his best to help anyone who needs it.
