** Mr. Poopybutthole is so nice, no one has a single negative memory of him--at least not one where he's the cause of the unpleasantness. After he's shot, he even ''apologizes'' for this.
** {{Subverted|Trope}}. Dr. Xenon Bloom tries to be friendly and cheerful, but given his [[WombLevel surroundings]] and [[NightmareFetishist expertise]] he just comes off as unsettling. He's also not a very good employer. He gives out iTunes gift cards as a ''Holiday bonus'' -- the smug, conceited bastard.
** Tony is very polite and cooperative with Rick, and by all accounts seems to have been a pleasant man and a loving husband to his late wife. The receptionist at his former job cried over his death, even weeks after quitting.

** Asami Sato is a prime example from the very start. She uses her [[SpoiledSweet vast personal wealth and resources]] to help her friends out whenever possible, is very hospitable, and refuses to hold a grudge, even in the aftermath of a messy love triangle.
** Bolin is arguably the nicest character in the main cast. He's a hugger, empathetic, thoughtful, compassionate, and seeks to devote his entire life to helping people by the end of the series.

Added DiffLines:

** Hugh Jass, a OneSceneWonder who, despite having the worst name in the world (possibly tied with Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo), is kind enough to not begrudge Bart in the slightest and even wish him better luck next time when he ends up on the end of a RealJokeName.


* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'': All five of the main characters - Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Scooby and Velma - are generally nice and likable folks. Now, there are a couple projects where one or more of them get the AdaptationalJerkass treatment (Scooby and Velma in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', Fred in ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'', the whole gang in [[Film/ScoobyDoo the live action movie]]), but the majority of the time they're nice kids and a dog.

Added DiffLines:

* Peri from ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'' is a cheerful, sweet, optimistic, and kindhearted soul who sees everyone in a positive light. Between him as his {{Jerkass}} friend Entree, Peri is always the first to feel remorse whenever their antics go too far or hurt someone. Unfortunately, he sometimes falls into being an ExtremeDoormat, as his optimism and good nature make him easy for Entree or other less moral characters to manipulate for cruel and selfish reasons.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wishfart}}'':
** While prone to jealousy, Dez is a friendly and optimistic teenager who really just wants to use his leprechaun wishing powers to make people happy [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor (even if they rarely go as he hoped)]].
** His love interest Tsuni is such a friendly and easygoing mermaid that she almost never gets mad at Dez for screwing things up and is always quick to forgive him or help him in some way (even giving him a kiss when he asked for one as part of some ridiculous challenge).

Added DiffLines:

* Spear, the caveman protagonist of ''WesternAnimation/Primal2019'', doesn't get to show this tendency often (as EverythingIsTryingToKillYou and [[GoodIsNotSoft being a brutal fighter and survivor is a requirement for survival]]) but in the first season alone he allowed Fang the tyrannosaur to follow him out of mutual grief, showed remorse for killing an elderly mammoth for her meat and hide and later returned her tusk to her herd as a gesture of respect, and risked his life to save a cave-dwelling ape with a broken leg. Flashback sequences also show he was a good father to his children, teaching them how to hunt and entertaining them with shadow puppets in front of the cave bonfire.


* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'':
** Theodore. He's so nice, in fact, that he borders on ExtremeDoormat territory.
** Jeanette. She is mostly kind and sweet to everyone around her.
** Eleanor is more assertive than Jeanette, but still caring and maternal.
