Playing With / Incorruptible Pure Pureness

Go To

Basic Trope: A character who is purely good, can't be corrupted and won't do anything bad.

  • Straight: Jason never gives into any temptation to do something bad, even if he thinks of doing bad sometimes.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Jason never even thinks of doing anything bad. He is that unambiguously pure.
    • Jason is the definition of purity; if he does something, it is pure, regardless of any moral or ethical issues.
  • Downplayed: On occasion, Jason almost does something bad, but stops himself every time.
  • Justified:
    • Jason doesn't want to ever become evil, and therefore works every day on being moral.
    • Jason simply has no interest in the things that tempt others.
    • Jason is an All-Loving Hero.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted:
  • Double Subverted:
    • He feels so horrible about it that he never does anything bad again.
    • ...At least, that what everyone thought at first glance, but it turns out those "bad things" were accidentally stepping on bugs.
    • Advertisement:
    • Jason is in an extreme case of Super Dickery.
  • Parodied: The only good thing Jason has done in his entire life is donating to charity, but everybody (including himself) treat him afterwards as if he's purely good and incorruptible.
  • Zig Zagged: Sometimes Jason is Incorruptible Pure Pureness, sometimes he's a terrible villain, and sometimes he's somewhere in between. It's Depending on the Writer.
  • Averted: Jason is just a standard hero.
  • Enforced: The creators wanted a character that could never be evil no matter how you looked at him.
  • Lampshaded:
    • "Jason never does anything wrong. How does he do it?"
    • "This guy's going to have a special place in Heaven."
    • "Dude's gonna achieve the Isles of the Blest with just this single lifetime."
  • Invoked: Jason seems to avoid places and situations that may or may not make him feel uncomfortable, but he says it's because of other plans.
  • Exploited:
    • Emperor Evulz tricks the innocent Jason into bringing him the Artifact of Doom that only someone with no inner evil could ever reach.
    • Because everyone treats him as purely good and incorruptible, he successfully and gleefully crosses the Moral Event Horizon, and nobody suspects a thing.
  • Defied: Jason deliberately removess any notion of his personal pureness from the minds of others, because he doesn't want to be put on a pedestal.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed:
    • Those who are critical of Jason, seeing his perfect purity as blandness personified, thus the "impure" characters appeal more to those cynics.
    • His pureness makes Jason very naive, and easily exploitable by others.
  • Reconstructed:
    • The critics are made to completely shut up, after being shown that the "impure" characters can sometimes be downright unlikable and rethink their opinion on Jason.
    • Good Is Not Dumb - Jason is incorruptible because he is wise.
