That's an Actual Pacifist, in a nutshell.
They're philosophically opposed to using physical violence to any degree, for any reason. To be on this trope, that includes self-defense, and if played right, can be a very moral and ethical person. On television, they are in contrast to the far-more-common Technical Pacifist, who is fine with punching, stabbing, shooting or maiming people as long as they survive the experience.
If they absolutely have to fight, most likely in the course of protecting another, expect Angst or even Wangst to result. Such a situation is usually a Matter of Life and Death. If this happens too often, they will become a Reluctant Warrior.
Certain religious figures and practitioners of White Magic are personally bound to be an Actual Pacifist, by reason of their dedication: they may support, bless, and succor those who fight, but they will not take up arms themselves. The Medic is also prone to be an Actual Pacifist, despite his common association with armies (although this is for a different reason — a Combat Medic COULD fight, but if they do, they're not under the protection of the Geneva Convention).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Trying to raise a child as an Actual Pacifist because their father was violent or loved being In Harm's Way usually fails, although the child may at least be less violent than their father and willing to try peaceful means.
Some Actual Pacifists are able to circumvent their restriction via mind games, such as Shaming the Mob. Every rule has a loophole, after all.
See also Perfect Pacifist People, for societies where everyone is an Actual Pacifist; and Sheathe Your Sword, where the only way to succeed is to avoid provoking a fight. Reckless Pacifist is someone whose methods of not killing manage to endanger people's lives. Contrast Martial Pacifist, who prefers to work things out peacefully but will handily take you down if there is no other option.
Taken to its logical extreme, this becomes Suicidal Pacifism; elevated to awesome — Badass Pacifist.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })When they appear in more cynical works, Actual Pacifists may be used to bring up the Family-Unfriendly Aesop that "sometimes, you need violence''.

Zeta from The Zeta Project would only use force to save human life, and only when it was the only option available. He refused to use guns to any degree and even though it's implied he was strong enough to kill people, he never did much more than knock them out, if that. A common fan theory is that this approach is why the network didn't like him and the show became the black sheep of the DCAU.

Ikuma Momochi, from the Tokyo Ghoul light novels. A Ghoul Raised By Muggles, he is a pacifist that has spent his life satisfying his Horror Hunger through scavenging from corpses. Even this causes him considerable remorse, and he wishes for the chance to talk down the suicides that make up his primary food source....even knowing that doing so would cause him to starve. When forced into confrontation with Tsukiyama, he would rather flee or use himself as a living shield to protect others. Fortunately for him, others are always there to rescue him from danger.

Yashiro Isana from K. In a series known for it's gorgeously animated fight scenes, you wouldn't expect to see a character who not only doesn't fight (even though he can as a King, since Word of God says that any fight between a King and non-King will be a Curb-Stomp Battle in the King's favor), but also tends to solve the cast's problems with plans that involve getting himself blown to bits. Good thing he's immortal.

Brother Gilbert of Dragonheart displayed this trait early on, but when war with Einon became inevitable he unwilling agreed to use his previously undiscovered (but historically justified) archery skills. Even then, he kept all but one of his shots non-fatal and was reciting biblical lines as he did so. (Shoots an enemy in the ass-cheek) "Turn the other cheek now, brother." Worth noting is that even when he was set up as an archer he couldn't bring himself to actually fire his bow until he realized that NOT shooting it would cause immediate pain and death to good people.

Bleach:
Chad used to be a real thug when he was younger until his grandfather lectured him about never using his fists to hurt others. Chad took his grandfather's lecture to heart and vowed never to lift his fists to fight for himself. When Ichigo saved him from being beaten by other thugs, Ichigo said he would make a vow to always protect Chad if Chad made a vow to always protect him. Chad holds to that vow to this day, raising his fists only to protect others, but never to protect himself. The anime bizarrely changed this backstory to him ignoring his grandfather's advice until his victims beat his grandfather almost to death. At that point he vows never to fight again. When the anime inevitably switches back from this adaptation to the canon, it results in an Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole because Chad's behaviour (born from the manga version of events) doesn't honour the anime's version of the vow.
Orihime is gentle-natured to the core, she can't muster up a full commitment to even wound anybody, no matter what. This causes Tsubaki (the holder of her offensive ability) to keep getting Worfed every time he's used. Multiple characters comment on how unsuited to battle she is because of her gentle nature.

Tenma from Monster. Both played straight and deconstructed, as his belief that one human has no right to harm another is constantly challenged by the antagonist, starting with the fact that his main goal is to kill the antagonist.

For the first two seasons of Chuck, Chuck Bartowski was an Actual Pacifist, and pretty useless in a fight regardless. After downloading Intersect 2.0 at the end of Season 2 he graduates into becoming more of a Reluctant Warrior, but still insists on attempting to diffuse problems nonviolently first and prefers carrying tranquilizer guns in the field. The only time he actually fires a real gun at anyone, much less with intent to kill, is shooting Shaw when he tries to murder Sarah, though it didn't stick.
Devon balks at even handling a firearm, though like Chuck he can and will fight if he has no other choice.

Heavy Object: The anime-only character Klondike is the leader of an antiwar movement opposed to the status quo of neverending brushfire wars (mainly fought as "clean wars" between Objects). He himself follows a Jain-like philosophy of absolute nonviolence and gently chides the protagonists Qwenthur and Havia for not having saved the operators of the seven or so Objects they and and Princess have destroyed.

For the Bard of Wandersong, this is one of his most defining traits (besides his specialization in music, of course). So dedicated he is to this philosophy that he struggles to hold and lift, let alone use, weapons of any kindnote not unlike Spongebob trying to lift a bunny plush-dumbbell on one of his off-days, as well as momentarily defying gravity if he so much as risks accidentally stepping on bugs. There are, however, two moments when the Bard gets startlingly close to breaking their vow, though neither actually end with him going too far. The first being at the end of Act 3 when Audrey Redheart introduces herself by killing an Overseer, and angers the bard enough to make him charge at her (he gets a near-fatal lightning bolt delivered to his chest for his troubles). The second is halfway through Act 6, when the aforementioned bugs open a way out of a cave-in that the Bard and Audrey were trapped in. He considers the possibility of leaving her behind in the cave to die because he believes that it'll be his fault if he lets her out and she kills the last Overseers, which'll end the universe. He relents when he gets her to promise not to kill any more... though she breaks it wide open the first chance she gets.

Lifeline from G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero refused to employ violence. On one occasion, he wouldn't even touch a rifle, even though it was being held out for him to grab and pull him out of a trap. This is based on his counterpart from the comics - see above. Exactly what an Actual Pacifist is doing as part of a front-line Anti-Terrorist Combat Force is never really explained, but it's implied he basically is only part of the Joes to always be there to help out when Cobra attacks.
His father, a priest, is an even stricter pacifist. Thanks to Lifeline's joining G.I.Joe, he considers his son to be a violent thug no better than a Cobra agent.

Dove, the character in Justice League Unlimited (and associated comic books) - the only superhero to take an entirely non-violent standpoint and get through his entire starring episode without throwing a punch. It keeps up in later appearances, and even when he does fight, it's with things like judo throws and holds rather than punches or kicks.

Fire Emblem
The heron clan of Laguz in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance are an entire race of pacifists, to the point that their youngest prince fractured his hand punching someone. Herons who use their innate magic for evil become horribly corrupted. Potentially averted in the case of herons who lose their powers as a result of having a child with a human. Both they and the resulting heron-beorc hybrids are fully capable of picking up a spellbook and account for some of the setting's most powerful mages.
Emmeryn, the Exalt of the Halidom of Ylisse from Fire Emblem Awakening, is such a pacifist that she doesn't even have a proper army. The closest thing to an army she has are the Shepherds, led by her younger brother Chrom, which are a group dedicated to protecting Ylisse from bandits and Plegian barbarians, not invading other lands.
Turns out her suicide failed, and you can actually recruit her in a post-game Spotpass mission. She is now a powerful Sage with the ability to actually kill people.

G.I. Joe:
Doc Greer is also an actual pacifist, who gets killed trying to protect his injured colleagues in the field.
The medic, Lifeline, who although he does have some training in non-combative martial arts like Judo for strict purposes of self-defense, is determined to never intentionally harm another person. Lifeline even gets mad at other people for using him to help them be violent, like when Roadblock told him to talk to a Cobra agent. While he was talking, Roadblock snuck behind the agent and knocked him out.
In an issue of G.I. Joe: Special Missions, Lifeline is among a group of Joes ambushed by river pirates during a skirmish with the Oktober Guard, and is forced into a duel to the death with Horrorshow; winner gets to leave with the black box from a Cobra Firebat that the Joes had captured. Lifeline uses aikido to redirect Horrorshow's attacks and he wins the fight, but refuses to kill Horrorshow, instead asking for the lives of both teams and letting the pirates keep the black box. The pirate leader decides to throw away the box and let them all go, having been impressed that Lifeline had the courage of his convictions.

Trapped on Draconica: Subverted by Yusef. While his every line is about the horror of fighting and how horrible it is to lead people to their deaths, etc, his solution to the war with Evil Overlord Gothon is to betray his people, kill off a great number of them and scare the rest into surrendering.

Vash the Stampede of Trigun, thoroughly amazing gunslinger though he may be, is one of the kindest and most selfless people you could ever meet, who despises violence and refuses to kill anyone. He skirts the line of Technical Pacifist, but frankly his sharpshooting skills are so good that he can use lethal weapons without risking serious injury let alone death (and when random chance does result in him injuring somebody, he stops mid-fight to patch them up). He will also occasionally use his reputation as a walking disaster area to attempt to frighten his enemies into giving up, and will always, always, always avoid killing. That is, until Legato Bluesummers actually manages to put Vash in a position where literally his only choices are to kill Legato or stand by as the man kills two of Vash's friends. Vash kills him, and goes into a rather severe Heroic BSoD over this, as one might expect.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00's Marina Ismail is a pacifist to the core. At one point when she and her friends are escaping from the secret police, she refuses to take a gun even to protect the children she's looking after.
Relena Darlian / Peacecraft from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (technically the source character for the aforementioned Marina), born to one family of pacifists and raised by another, struggles continuously with her wish to bring about total pacifism during a time of war. In the Endless Waltz movie/OVA she realizes that peace is something you have to earn yourself and abandons the "passive" part of pacifism, urging the Muggles to stand up for themselves rather than just Holding Out For A Heero.
Unlike her Expy Marina, Relena isn't suicidally pacifist; in one episode, she comes under attack from the Romefeller Foundation and is saved by the defense force her right-hand woman Noin had been organizing in secret. While she's initially upset at Noin, she reluctantly agrees to let the defense force stand, since the said organization obviously isn't going to respect their pacifist stance.
The original Heero Yuy (not to be confused with the pilot named after him) actually created the "Total Pacifism" philosophy; people like Relena's father King Marticius Peacecraft, and Quatre's father Zayeed Winner adopted it themselves. Tellingly, all three were assassinated and their deaths led to more death as others sought to avenge them.

In the New Jedi Order, Jacen Solo at one point becomes one of these. While all the other Jedi and the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant are fighting the Yuuzhan Vong. ...It was rather annoying. When he comes out of pacifism, he goes quickly into Messiah Mode, and later becomes evil.

Doc from Red vs. Blue abhors violence in every way, even having joined the army as a conscientious objector. For this reason, he is a medic... and his extreme pacifism has earned him the undying hatred of both teams. For maximum hilarity, the Omnicidal Hyper-Aggressive AI O'Malley hijacks his body and attempts to use him in his ultimate goal of taking over the universe, and "crushing every living soul into dust!" This pacifism is so extreme that when the Blues and Reds are in the middle of another fight, Church resorts to shooting Caboose in the foot to get him to cross to the other side, as even pretending to help the Blues against the Reds seemed too "aggressive" to Doc.

In the Made-for-TV Movie, the Eighth Doctor is definitely like this. However, he's a Kleptomaniac Hero, and steals whatever the hell he thinks he needs (and stealing Gorgeous Period Dress from someone's locker probably counts as just stealing whatever he wants). As he needs to get someplace in a hurry, he steals a motorcycle from a cop. It's possibly the most endearing armed robbery ever.

Folder, of the Whateley Universe. He accidentally destroyed the arm of his best friend when his powers first manifested, and he was so traumatized that he still refuses to fight. Even to defend himself from bullies. Even to defend himself from a superpowered bully who keeps putting him in the hospital. Even when he is transformed into a girl and nearly raped by a delusional mage... and when finally pushed ''too'' far, we see why he refused to uses his powers in self-defense.

In The Transformers, Beachcomber took it to the level of allowing Decepticons to take a powerful MacGuffin in a pretty area of forest rather than mention it to the Autobots and allow a fight to take place. In a later episode, First Aid allowed Swindle to get away with a component necessary for Metroplex to transform rather than shoot back.
In the episode "The Rebirth", Cerebros, has grown weary of fighting (after a few millennia of war who could blame him?). He eventually promises to fight just one last time, becoming a part of one of the most powerful Transformers ever created, on the condition that afterwards he is switched off... permanently. Optimus Prime and Spike later convince him to retire to Nebulos instead, to help the Nebulans rebuild their society and serve as their guardian, giving him something new to live for.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay has the priests (usually priestesses, actually)) of Shallya, whose precepts bar them from wearing armour and using any weapons apart from quarter staffs. They are also banned from killing, even in self defense, and will lose their place in the priesthood if they violated this rule. The only exceptions to this rule are Daemons, The Undead, and followers of Nurgle, and even then the two former only in self-defence. In the 2nd edition, Shallyans even had a unique spell designed purely to kill Nurgle-followers and daemons.

In the main setting of Labyrinths of Echo, the World of Rod, people with "the calling" of a healer are driven to help others. At least some also feel when people suffer. Not only do they study medicine, if at all possible: they can't sleep if someone in need of help can't get to them, so traditionally healers' homes had no locks. For them, harming someone is unthinkable and if it accidentally happens, breakdown ensues. However, they can — and if necessary will — fight opponents not triggering these reactions, such as walking dead or materialized hallucinations. And they tend to be talented mages with constant practice, so there's a good chance the healer wins.

Cream The Rabbit does not physically engage in combat in Sonic Battle; all of her moves are done via her partner/pet Cheese. This pacifism comes to a particular head in her story mode: Neither Cream nor Cheese will fight their captors, leaving all of the combat duties to Emerl, at least for the first few rounds, before she realises she's just endangering her friends and reluctantly steps up to defend her friends.

In Vampire Academy, the Moroi are trained in a pacifistic philosophy, learning to not use their magic in either offensive or defensive ways. Which is why they depend on dhampir guardians to protect them from the Strigoi threat.

The Duchess Satine of Madalore in Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a complete pacifist. In the episode "Voyage of Temptation" she even hesitates to shoot someone threatening to blow up her ship. This leads to plenty of Snark-to-Snark Combat with Martial Pacifist Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This is later deconstructed in Season 5, as not only does she have disposition of being a pacifist in a galaxy at war and leading a people who are historically a proud warrior race, the Death Watch (who've been trying to overthrow her regime and bring Mandalore back to its warrior race roots) teams up with Darth Maul, stages an invasion of the planet by an army of criminals to reinforce how pacifism has made Mandalore vulnerable to those willing to prey on those who refuse to fight back and then Death Watch comes along to "quell" the criminals. In the end, the people of Mandalore see the Death Watch as heroes, Satine is removed from power, Mandalore goes into another civil war not long after Maul takes the throne and she is coldly murdered by Maul for the sake of emotionally tormenting Obi-Wan.

The four in With Strings Attached, probably making this the only heroic fantasy with Actual Pacifists as protagonists. They never initiate fights—in fact, they avoid conflict when possible—and while three of them do deal some minor damage to people in revenge for having been badly abused (the polar opposite of Disproportionate Retribution), none of them would dream of seriously hurting any living thing. (When Paul comes close to doing so, he suffers a Heroic BSoD.)
Though they do make exceptions to protect one another. And John has more of a temper than the others and does open a can of nonlethal whoop-ass on a few people, always while protecting one or more of the others.

At least in the Warcraft RPG Shadows & Light manual, it's stated that Elune, the goddess of the night elves, is a pacifist. In fact, according to her stats, she has no attack bonus, only a grapple bonus. She has abilities like a song that will make everyone that hears it drop its weapons and cease to fight.
Which is odd considering Elune' priestesses in Warcraft 3 are elite archers, with her high priestess leading the entire Night Elf military.
Then again it was written by White Wolf, whose Warcraft RPG books were full of errors like this.

You become this in Undertale if you choose to. Instead of fighting enemies, you can talk them out of it. This is how you complete the True Pacifist run, though in order to get to that ending you have to at least fall into Technical Pacifist territory by fighting (but not killing) Asgore and Flowey in the pacifist neutral route. Only when that has been done can you achieve the true pacifist run, in which you never so much as touch the 'fight' button. Or, you could go out of your way to not do this, by doing a Genocide route.

In the Star Trek Novel Verse, the Halkans insist there is no violence of any kind in their hearts. As a result of this, anyone capable of violence cannot be truly Halkan. In Star Trek: The Lost Era, Halkan character Lojur is even exiled from the planet for using violence in defense of his village. It was under attack by murderous raiders, but even then the majority of his people found fighting inconceivable.
The Caeliar from Star Trek: Destiny. They would rather die in the millions than harm another being, or even allow harm to come to another if they can prevent it. When the human characters they're holding captive rebel, they're convinced to co-operate when a human shoots his own colleague.

In Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Gohan has evolved into this. However, this is heavily deconstructed by episode 60. By that point, Gohan refuses to even touch Cell and tries to scare him off with his hidden power. Instead, this just pushes the monster into trying to awaken it. Out of desperation, he ends up revealing himself as a Holier Than Thou Dirty Coward when he tells Cell he didn't want to fight him and that this was Goku's fight from the beginning. Cell promptly calls him out on said cowardice with Android 16 following suit.

Wax and Wayne: Pathians tend to be extremely non-violent. It's not actually a part of their religion, but falls into the general heading of "do more good than harm." The main character, Waxillium Ladrian, is a Pathian gunman, but he's very much the exception. In Shadows of Self, this is how the constables immediately realize that a Pathian priest was an impostor sent to stir up trouble.

In Dungeons & Dragons:
The goddess Eldath from the Forgotten Realms setting forbids her clerics from violence. This was most visible in the AD&D days, when her specialty priests ("Peacemen" and "Peacewomen") could not use armor of any kind, nor fighting except in self-defense or to defend others having a limited set of allowed weapons, and were able to parry enemy attacks, and one priest kit ("Stillwater") for standard Eldathyn clerics went even further forbidding them from using any kind of weapon or armor.
The "Vow of Non-Violence" And "Vow of Peace" are intended to lead towards this, as exemplified by the Apostle of Peace Prestige Class: they forsake violence and material possessions in exchange for healing abilities and defensive powers. However, those lofty holy vows don't prohibit nonlethal damage, so beating people into unconsciousness is fair game. However, since the vows come with an affect that inflicts penalties on anyone, including your teammates, who tries using violence against a living opponent, actually taking the feats can easily turn a character into The Scrappy as far as their teammates are concerned.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories has as its hero Harry Mason, whose most violent action a player can do in the game is a shove or elbow to a monster's head that is grabbing him.

In Angel and the Badman (1947) Quirt Evans (John Wayne) falls in love with Quaker Prudence Worth (Gail Russel) and foreswears his violent ways and quest to avenge the murder of his adoptive father. He almost backslides, but in the final confrontation with the man responsible, Laredo Stevens, Prudence convinces Quirt to lay down his gun. Stevens then attempts to shoot Evans, who would have been killed if not for the timely intervention of the sheriff (Harry Carey, Sr.). The pacifist theme this Western is a bit unexpected given John Wayne's popular image, but he not only played the lead, but also produced it.

In the Halo series, the Huragok - better known to humanity as the Engineers - are a Covenant member species who view the killing of even pests as wrong. Ironically enough, one of them, called "Lighter Than Some", was the first Covenant member to kill a human; said human was trying to kill its best friend Dadab after the Covenant had assaulted his ship in search of Forerunner artifacts. It was of course horrified of what it had done. In fact, Huragok are only part of the Covenant by convenience; they were designed by their original Forerunner creators to enjoy inspecting, repairing, and improving technology (especially Forerunner ones), but are indifferent to nearly everything else and in fact will happily help just about anyone they see who needs their technology repaired, including humans on numerous occasions. One even improves the Master Chief's MJOLNIR armor's shield system.

The goddess Eldath from the Forgotten Realms setting forbids her clerics from violence. This was most visible in the AD&D days, when her specialty priests ("Peacemen" and "Peacewomen") could not use armor of any kind, nor fighting except in self-defense or to defend others having a limited set of allowed weapons, and were able to parry enemy attacks, and one priest kit ("Stillwater") for standard Eldathyn clerics went even further forbidding them from using any kind of weapon or armor.

The Liir from Sword of the Stars are nearly an entire race of actual pacifists. They consider being willing to harm another creature a form of dangerous — if sadly sometimes necessary — insanity. The few Liir willing to take the step to hurt and kill to protect other Liir, meanwhile, take things to the opposite end. They've already broken the greatest taboo by harming another, so at that point any question of 'scale' and 'methodology' becomes a purely symbolic distinction.

It is possible to play an actual pacifist in the first two games of Fallout by maxing out all of your social traits. You can even talk the final boss to death.
And you can also be a technical pacifist. It's their fault for building their base on top of a nuke, right?

Doctor Leslie Thompkins in Batman is a notorious example of this. She runs a clinic for the poor and desperate in Gotham and refuses to have anything to do with violence. She is a reluctant ally of Batman, but openly chides and scorns him for his willingness to actually hurt people like the Joker or various mooks in order to stop them from committing crimes.

100% Orange Juice! has DLC characters Kyoko and Sweet Breaker, it's even reflected in gameplay:
Kyoko has 5 HP and +3 Defense, but is unable to use the Evade command, and her Hyper Card, called "Crystal Barrier", allows her to skip any battle, drop panel or trap card, at the cost of 1 HP. So, your best chance is to focus efforts on star norma and keep her away from battle.
Sweet Breaker has 6 HP (The average is 5) and neutral stats, which obviously allows her to survive for a little longer if things get rough; Her Hyper Card, called "Melting Memories", flips over all enemy cards, forcing them to play blind and actually preventing them from getting too excited to go into a fight; even the achievement for playing ten times with her is called "Champion Of Peace". Although in her campaign, that doesn't stop her from fighting anyone she thinks is spreading conflict.

In Vinland Saga, Thorfinn attempts to become a pacifist to atone for his past, and forswears the use of violence. This oath lasts until he's put in the position between sticking to his oath or saving the life of another through violence, at which point he moderates to become a Martial Pacifist who lives by Thou Shalt Not Kill. He still makes it clear he'd prefer to be this trope if people weren't being threatened around him.

Animorphs: The Pemalites were examples of this trope until they met the Howlers, Crayak's shock troopers. Their android creations, the Chee, have pacifism hardwired into them - given how powerful they are, this grates on the main characters from time to time. The one time Erek (the main Chee character) was able to override his pacifism, he effortlessly wiped out a Yeerk force that would have slaughtered the team, but couldn't cope with the idea of doing that all the time and willingly returned to normal. Not even Marco could really blame him.
The Hork-Bajir originally had no concept of violence. When the Yeerks - parasitic slugs that infest the brain and thereafter control the body - started conquering them, it didn't occur to most of them to fight back. Dak Hamee, the Hork-Bajir equivalent of Einstein, wasted several minutes in his first-ever fight trying to figure out how it had been possible for the other Hork-Bajir to cut him.
In an earlier novel, Ax claimed that the Hork-Bajir are biologically compelled to go to war every 63 years, but there's no evidence of this in the later series - so it's either an attempt at propaganda or just Early Installment Weirdness.

The Tinkers in The Wheel of Time series are something of a deconstruction. the series shows exactly how well being an actual pacifist as well as a member of a persecuted culture works... namely, not at all. The Tinkers do a lot of running when they're lucky, and a lot of dying when they aren't, but apparently it's worth it to them. Broken Tinkers tend to be... rabid.

They're all The Empath and thus can't bring themselves to harm others, though they do understand why others sometimes need to use violence. Kimono develops their own Powered Armor type, the Bard Armor, to be a completely nonviolent Support Party Member to the other sets, enabling her and any other Empathy Worlder who uses it to be a Badass Pacifist.

William Thorndop in Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura is a hermit who took a vow of non-violence after abandoning his old life as a bandit; he's so committed to his ideals that he cut off his own trigger fingers to make sure he could never hold a gun again. Unfortunately he's also the only character in the game who can provide Master-level Firearms training, which will cause him a severe moral quandary if your character is looking to learn more about guns from him, since he sees aiding another in committing violence as a violation of his vows.

In The Boondocks episode "Return of the King", in an Alternate History universe Martin Luther King wasn't killed by an assassin, but put into a coma for 32 years, waking up significantly aged in a hospital bed on October 27, 2000. After the 9/11 attacks, King appears on TV, stating that his Christian faith teaches him to "turn the other cheek", even with respect to enemies such as Al-Qaeda. His commentary receives severe scorn from the White House Press Secretary, CNN and Time magazine, and causes his popularity to plummet.

In One Piece, the royal Riku family in the Dressrosa arc had not brought on a war upon its country for eight hundred years. Even a threat of invasion did not get them to take up arms. They had to be forcibly removed from the throne in order to get them to. Ricky/King Riku strikes with the flat of his blade when forced to fight and his granddaughter Rebecca has a reputation of being undefeated despite never hitting an opponent directly.
Played for Laughs with Bobby Funk: He was gifted with enormous levels of strength and toughness, but he is a total pacifist not by personal preference, but because the mere thought of fighting greatly scares him. When he has to step into the battlefield by himself, all he'll do is huddle in a corner shivering as his enemies' swords and axes snap against his back. He is frequently used as a Big Dumb Body for his strength by his brother Kelly, however, as Kelly has the ability to possess people and is skilled at close quarters combat.

Iji's eponymous heroine starts out somewhere between this and Reluctant Warrior, to the point of apologizing to the enemies she kills. Depending on the player, she may develop into a Technical Pacifist (even on higher difficulty levels, it's possible, though difficult, to complete the game with ZERO kills — although the boss fights are unavoidable, most end with another character dealing the final blow, and the other is against a machine), Blood Knight, or anything in between.

Ciel in Mega Man Zero is also an Actual Pacifist, forming a Resistance to house the Reploids scrapped by Neo Arcadia but being intensely unwilling to fight anyone and slaving herself away day in and day out to find an alternative energy source that eliminates the energy shortage, which is what created the conflict in the first place. She's not blind to the need to defend themselves, however, and many times authorizes missions to launch guerrilla strikes or flat-out offensives (if only for self-defense). It's ZigZagged on how well this would have played out in the long run as Copy X was fully willing to keep launching strikes against them which would have wiped them out if not for Zero, but Ciel does in fact finish making the new energy source and there's implication that were it not for the arrival of Dr. Weil and the revived Copy X when she did so, Neo Arcadia would have ended the war peacefully given the disposition of acting ruler Harpuia.

Karn, the Silver Golem, from the Weatherlight Saga in Magic: The Gathering. Karn adopted his pacifism when he tried to help his crewmates and accidentally killed an innocent bystander. He essentially poses as a statue when an altercation occurs. This is later used against him by Volrath who tortures Karn by placing him in a constantly shifting room with many disposable mooks. The room causes Karn to constantly fall on the mooks crushing and killing them. Later he recanted his vow of pacifism during a war, when he realized that his inaction led to innocent people dying.
There are also spells that can force creatures to become this, the most obvious being Pacifism. Although the right creature, such as the Prodigal Pyromancer can still hurt people, they just don't do so through combat. A more complete method would be Faith's Fetters, as it stops creatures from attacking, blocking, or using abilities that do anything except add mana to your mana pool. Even then, there's always a way.

In the second edition of Chronicles of Darkness book Hurt Locker which introduces supernatural minor templates there are the Plain which represent a sort of supernatural Amish group that act as a non-violent activist group generally organized around blogs with supernatural abilities (not that they necessarily know that) to deal damage done to them, and to force others to not harm anyone they're protecting, and more. Actual Pacifism is the goal, but not a requirement to maintain the merits.

The main character of Ikemen Sengoku hates war and absolutely refuses to kill anyone, which causes Culture Clash when she gets sent back in time to the Sengoku period where wars are commonplace and people are used to killing to survive. Several of the warlords she lives with initially consider her pacifist convictions to be foolish or naive, but ultimately accept them as a core part of who she is, just as she comes to accept that killing others doesn't make them bad people. She also becomes a medic to save others on the battlefield.

The Dark Crystal: The urRu/Mystics are kind, gentle creatures, but they do nothing to stop the Skeksis from destroying the land, enslaving the Podlings and committing genocide against the Gelflings. Justified in that the urRu could not act against their evil counterparts without destroying themselves in the process. Word of God says even if they wanted to commit suicide to stop the Skeksis, the urRu have no will to act, because all the strength and drive of the urSkeks is embodied in the Skeksis themselves. Even the narrator states that the urRu live in a hazy, half-dream state.

Gennosuke from Basilisk is an interesting example of this. He never starts a fight in the whole show and even orders his own people not to kill the Iga ninjas. On the other hand he eventually decides he has no choice but let the Kouga annihilate the Iga. The few times he does fight (quite brutally in fact) his power means that he never has to engage in any actual violence.

Doctor Who:
The Argolins from "The Leisure Hive" and the Dulcians from "The Dominators" wore this hat. The Thals from the first Dalek story, "The Daleks", as well, though they later dropped this stance rather than having the Daleks exterminate them all. All three races had previously survived a nuclear war, making them all three, in effect, a species-level example of The Atoner.
Also, the Ood, who (prior to being neutered and enslaved by the Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire) are born with secondary brains that they hold in their hands. Therefore, they have no choice but to be peaceful and docile and hope other species return the favor, despite looking like Lovecraftian squid-monsters.
In the Made-for-TV Movie, the Eighth Doctor is definitely like this. However, he's a Kleptomaniac Hero, and steals whatever the hell he thinks he needs (and stealing Gorgeous Period Dress from someone's locker probably counts as just stealing whatever he wants). As he needs to get someplace in a hurry, he steals a motorcycle from a cop. It's possibly the most endearing armed robbery ever.
Generally speaking, the Doctor tries to be an Actual Pacifist, but his Chronic Hero Syndrome means that when bad guys attack, he won't just stand by, and often becomes a Technical Pacifist as a result. However, he remains this trope because his favorite tactic (Daleks and a few other monsters aside) is still to convince them to stand down or Break Them by Talking.

His Split Personality, on the other hand has little problem with killing people (one early manga story has him blowing up a school bully with nitroglycerin and in another he sets a gang of toughs on fire), though this becomes less prominent as the series goes on.

Frank Black of Millennium seems to have at least some elements of True Pacifism. Black shows a clear distaste for firearms, and never carries or uses them, with a few noticeable exceptions. He even takes this distaste to the extreme of potentially endangering himself, as in the Season 3 episode "TEOTWAWKI", when he leaves his weapon at home before going to investigate a dangerous end-of-the-world cult. It is remarked once by his wife that he could no longer harm a prisoner under his care than he could harm his own daughter. In only two cases is he pushed to outright violence and rage: At the end of Season 1, when he kills the man who kidnapped his wife (an act so shocking to his wife that it leads to their separation), and in the series finale, when he discovers that the Millennium group sent a man into his house to videotape his daughter sleeping, sending him to violently break into Watts' house with the intent of killing him.

As shown in various works, most Ithorians tend towards this, holding to a Law of Life that even applies to plants - if a plant is killed for food, two seeds of its species must be planted. Momaw Nadon, when he accidentally gets an evil Imperial officer killed, creates two clones of him and raises them as his sons. In Galaxy of Fear it's found that an Ithorian created Spore. It took a hundred years and some Jedi Knights intervening to contain it, but they put it into a Tailor-Made Prison instead of killing it.

Star Wars Legends:
In the New Jedi Order, Jacen Solo at one point becomes one of these. While all the other Jedi and the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant are fighting the Yuuzhan Vong. ...It was rather annoying. When he comes out of pacifism, he goes quickly into Messiah Mode, and later becomes evil.
In The Black Fleet Crisis, there's one sect of Force-Sensitives called the Fallanassi that is so incredibly anti-violence that they won't defend themselves or anyone else, consider anyone who does fight at all to be dangerous and deluded at the least, and act like wariness is a moral outrage on par with assault. The books dealt with a Fallanassi member telling Luke Skywalker that his mother was another member of the sect and repeatedly chewing him out and telling him that he's as bad as Vader or the Emperor. And Luke standing around, taking it, because he half-believed her and wanted to hear about his mother. However considering this was after his turn to the Dark Side and during the period Luke was still very much "Must use Force for everything, no matter how trivial or invasive!" (like wiping memories from innocents...)? Well, let's face it. She was on to something, as Mara pointed out to him years later. Of course, they apparently have no problem with lying to Luke about his mother.

In Firefly, Simon Tam tries to be this, and most of the time is successful, but occasionally is pressed into Technical Pacifist ("Did he just go crazy and fall asleep?" "I told him to sit down...") and rarely into Reluctant Warrior, although usually to save another member of the crew. He typically never fights to protect himself. Given how bad at fighting he is, this is a good thing.

Emmeryn, the Exalt of the Halidom of Ylisse from Fire Emblem Awakening, is such a pacifist that she doesn't even have a proper army. The closest thing to an army she has are the Shepherds, led by her younger brother Chrom, which are a group dedicated to protecting Ylisse from bandits and Plegian barbarians, not invading other lands.
Turns out her suicide failed, and you can actually recruit her in a post-game Spotpass mission. She is now a powerful Sage with the ability to actually kill people.

In The Immortal Game Twilight Sparkle becomes one after being freed from the Sliver of Darkness (or to be more accurate, her dominant personality, Sparkle, does), to the point that she can't even fight Puppets, even thought they're not even sentient or really alive. This lasts until her personalities fuse back together, and she starts kicking ass.

Professor Layton fits the description since, although the games show him to be an excellent fencer and in overall remarkably good shape for an academic, he firmly espouses the mindset that "a gentleman does not seek violence." He's only willing to get into a fight if he doesn't have much of a choice, either to defend his own well-being or that of someone else, and on those occasions when he does fight he does so as non-lethally as possible. In the swordfight from the second game, he only crosses blades to defend himself, and stops as soon as his opponent shows signs of failing strength. In the third game, his response to being shot at is to rig together a machine gun made out of a slot machine, and use it to shoot his antagonists with coins!

The Caeliar from Star Trek: Destiny. They would rather die in the millions than harm another being, or even allow harm to come to another if they can prevent it. When the human characters they're holding captive rebel, they're convinced to co-operate when a human shoots his own colleague.

In High Noon (1952), the Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper) has just retired and married a pacifist Quaker Amy (Grace Kelly) — which is sort of a problem 'cause a gang of indignant baddies has just come back to town and they want revenge. This makes for extra drama when Amy, after protesting his heroics and leaving him because of his choice to stay and fight, comes back just in time and kills a man to save her man. She does so by shooting the man in the back from inside a building.

Arthur of the Britons has Rolf the Preacher who tries to spread the message of peace to the Celts. When he explains the doctrine of 'turn the other cheek' to Mark of Cornwall, Mark slaps him hard across the face. Rolf's reaction is to literally turn the other cheek, and present it to Mark to be slapped as well.

Terrence Mann in Field of Dreams. When he's reminded so by Ray, he stops short of "beat[ing Ray] with a crowbar until you go away" and drops the crowbar.

John Paul in Pope John Paul II. He is is horrified by the violence he witnessed throughout his life, in Poland under first Nazi and then Soviet rule, and then as international figure of Pope. He saw the new millennium as an opportunity for humanity to strive for peace between nations. There’s a scene in the first part of the movie where his friend Marek sneaks up on and kills two Nazis, and Fr. Wojtyla is clearly incredibly angered by this act.
