Something about the description here hits me the wrong way... it seems to be implying that this sort of a character is bad writing. It can be—and it's easier to mess up than most characters—but I've read several examples that really are fully rounded characters. They don't tend to be main characters; they are more likely to be people who've already faced and defeated temptation, or simply people who are truly innocent and just don't *get* evil to begin with (they will often be saints or non-humans; aliens, angels, the faithful dog, etc.).

I wish I could tweak this to reflect that idea—that this trait is not a hallmark of a bad character, but still very easy to mess up—but I can't really figure out how to express that. Perhaps someone else would be willing to give it a shot.

I added this to the YMMV tab. Is this OK? I just felt like people would have different opinions on who is purely good just like they have different opinions on who is purely evil...

We need a TV Tropes folder for this page. One of the tropes is Screw the Money, I Have Rules!.
