* Raine Silverlock, from ''Webcomic/TwoKinds''. Undoubtabley the most selfless and overall nicest member of the main cast, she is eternally insecure over her [[spoiler: Keidran-Human shapeshifting]], constantly tries to be good to her friends (and Keidran) alike, and even [[spoiler: ponders the motives of assassin Zen, who had just been captured after trying to kill them]], which does pay off. She is also the daughter of the former Grand Templar (the head of the order of mages in the comic's setting) and an extremely powerful [[spoiler: shapeshifting Keidran Mage (who is responsible for her own shapeshifting ability)]]. And if one tries to outright kill or hurt her friends, she will SNAP. Case in point: The aforementioned [[spoiler: Zen]] was prevented from making a killing blow after she intercepted him (Although it nearly got her killed [[spoiler: by Red, who didn't recognise her]], and in the most recent arc, she is responsible for [[spoiler: pushing a teleporting Carver ALL THE WAY TO THE BASITIN ISLANDS, hundreds of kilometres away.]] So whatever you do, DON'T try to hurt her friends.

* Played strait in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfGyro'', the Disney comic parody. In the story Gyro Gearloose - the nicest person in Duckburg snaps for no reason, start kidnapping children, destroys characters property, burns down Scrooge's Money Bin, kills Magica De Spell by burning her alive and tires to butcher few more characters. Since Gyro is usually the most pleasant character nobody even suspects him of making such terrible things...

* Piro from ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' is an example, as a group of perverted otaku voyeurs in a restaurant found out. This is more obvious in Piro's online alter-ego ''Piroko'', and associated wallpapers/[[http://www.megagear.com/product_p/1010.htm tshirt]] with a cute girl carrying a big gun, and the phrase "Ph34r t3h cute ones".

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has Grace, super cute pacifist who just [[InnocentFanserviceGirl wishes people were less uptight about nudity.]] You can tie her up, torture her, even tell her you are going to use her for a ''breeding'' program. Make her believe you have hurt one of her friends though and there is [[SuperSoldier no power on Earth or beyond that can save you]].
** In the author's own words:
--->'''Dan Shive''': There is nothing more dangerous in any universe being written by me than a nice character who's been [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=530/ pushed over the edge.]] And Grace is really, REALLY nice.
** To not quite as potent an extent, Elliot. He's extremely nice and by default helpful. Of course, mocking Tedd or any of his friends changes things.
** And now, we learn, Noah. Not only do his [[ViewerGenderConfusion girly looks]] hide inhuman strength and speed, but his [[SpockSpeak particular speech patterns]] are a deliberate focusing mechanism to keep control of an otherwise short temper.



* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** Gilgamesh Wulfenbach is a genius who never even bothered to build a death ray, and who will put up with massive annoyance to avoid killing people he neither likes nor respects, but when an enemy army really gets in his way, he smashes it in about five seconds.
*** What happens when he gets angry at someone? He [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060306 kicks serious ass.]]
*** He even stands up against an ex-[[SuperSoldier Jägermonster]] in [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080303 this]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080305 scene]].
*** He [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071126 deals with]] an invasion force against Mechanicsburg while his father is in the hospital in that city. Alone, with a lightning gun.
*** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090323 "If I let everyone I thought was an idiot die, there wouldn't be many people left."]]
** Agatha starts out as a clueless student, then she starts [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]] as she realizes her sparkiness and gets fighting lessons from Zeetha. She is still generally a nice one, but you don't want to make her angry. [[spoiler: Killing her boyfriend]] is especially [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070117 not a good idea]].
** Higgs might seem like a [[TheStoic stoic]] who though MadeOfIron and perfectly capable of fighting does so calmly, is not exempt from this either after [[spoiler: [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20101020 Zeetha gets stabbed through the chest by Zola]]]].
** Tarvek isn't exactly a "[[TheChessmaster nice one]]", given his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, but the one and only time we ever saw him be violent, it was a staged fight that both parties got a little too into. [[spoiler: So ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110117 this]]'' got quite the "Holy shit!" reaction from the fandom.]]

* Tony of ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' is one of the nicest and definitely the most laid back of those living in the cabin and its subterranean chambers, opposed to killing humans and sentient monsters without the mental instability Zeno projects. This does not mean it's a good idea to nail him down with ColdIron, steal his [[HatOfPower tarnkappe]] and go after his friends even if the attack should leave Tony powerless. As a matter of fact Tony implies that just being pinned with ColdIron was enough to put him in a murderous state of mind.


* ''WebComic/{{Niels}}'': Agent 300 is a suave, gentlemanly, laid-back AgentPeacock who, while not a paragon of morality, is still one of the nicer characters in the comic, especially compared to the title character. He will rain swift and terrible retribution on anyone who dares to [[spoiler: try and murder [[ClosetKey Agent 250]]]].

* Max of ''Code Name: Hunter'' fills this trope pretty well. Sure that he is responsible and mild-manered (and [[SociallyAwkwardHero a little shy]]), but just don't you forget that Max has years of trainning in swordfigtht and experience in beat up warlocks and magical creatures. So, if you leave him no choice [[LetsGetDangerous but fight]] (or [[BerserkButton pushing him too far]]), Max will [[CurbStompBattle Kick your ass]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown very painfully]].
