My mission is noble, my heart is pure, I have nothing to fear.
~ Samurai Jack: in Episode 6 "Jack and the Warrior Woman".
What is the Symbol of Peace? That's tough. I'm not certain how to explain it to you. I thought this country needed a hero who can inspire them. So, I ran towards that goal at full speed. I wanted to be a light as a beacon of hope. As well as a warning. I swore that's what I'd become and I never looked back.

Pure Good, also known as Pure of Heart, is the best of all heroes, a hero who is completely pure and incorruptible. It is the direct opposite of Pure Evil (a villain who is the evilest and depraved, without being redeemed).

Pure Good means that these heroes want to make the world better, or at least keep it from getting any worse. Opposed to what you would think, being pure good doesn't mean being a perfect, flawless hero. Not for themselves, but for everyone that lives in it. For this type of hero, doing good for them is as natural as living and breathing. They can be identified through these traits:

  • Pleasant: The character is basically nice and reasonable with any other character, and tries to get along with anyone who interacts with him or her, even if they are hostile to him or her.
  • Selfless: They think about others before themselves, and wouldn't hesitate to risk their lives to save others, sometimes even people they don't know.
  • Incorruptible: No matter how many times they are tempted, or how much pains they go through, a pure heart doesn't surrender to his or her inner demons, like anger.
  • Forgiving: They give their enemies chances and allows them to redeem themselves. Sometimes, they even save their enemies, after being their victims.
  • Reluctant to Kill: Some never kill any foe, no matter how cruel they are. Yet some do, though only in self-defense (or in an equitable fight), in last resort, and with remorse. Heroes who have fun killing cannot be labeled pure goods if they kill more than one person at least in a limited number.
  • Acts: True heroes shows their courage through actions, such as saving lives, or at least making life much easier for people in need. And most importantly, they expect no reward, and that goes for certain greedy heroes who can show their nice side.
  • Naïve: Sometimes, the hero just can't grasp unto most concepts, such as technology, money, or intercourse. Mostly, this is why they aren't interested in power or greed. Heroes that have this trait often are children or grow up in a primitive society.

Older pure good characters started off as pure good, while in newer times, characters become pure good during character development.

For future reference, the following categories are by the alphabetical order and largely NOT qualified with Pure Good, and should be remembered before listing a character like this:

Even if someone is considered "pure of heart" in their own respective universes (such as Batman, Son Goku, Jesus Christ, SpongeBob SquarePants, N, and Monkey D. Luffy), if they meet any of the criteria above, they cannot be considered pure in real life.
