The character isn't an Anti-Hero, Vigilante Man or even portrayed as Good Is Not Nice. They are a genuinely friendly, sociable, caring person, always looking out for their friends and family and trying to do the right thing. Such a character would have to be compassionate to their enemies, right?
Actually, no. Unlike the Good Is Not Nice character someone who falls under this trope really is nice. It's just a case that niceness does not extend to the Complete Monster, and s/he will not wait for s/he Button to be pressed or show why it pays to watc, they will go out and either beat down or kill the bad guys, before sleeping like a baby.
He really is genuinely nice, caring, loving, and willing to Pistol Whip someone who's crossed the Line or beat down some Jerk, or help brutally destroy a Complete Monster in cold blood. And don't EVER hurt his/her crew and friends. It will probably be the last mistake you ever make considering you won't be even alive after it.
Maybe The Hero knows that the criminal will break out of the Prison. Maybe the villain has placed the Ideal Hero in a kdire situation and said hero does this for the greater good, taking on the moral consequences of their action. if he offers a Last-Second Chance, you'd better take it, for he will not hesitate when it comes to the crunch.

First of all I love the title-often times society feel if someone is too nice they are soft. Kudos for explaining this characteristic.
Second like how there agressive actions only take place after all othersolutions have not worked, and even then they are hopefull that they do not have to go through with tough actions.
Good job on this article alos like they ending that it was not TOO serious or graphic
