Which myths exemplify good character traits?

I taught an elective class many years ago covering different cultures' and their myths. The district I work for canceled the class in 2010, but wants to bring it back. The district is interested in the class emphasizing "character" traits like honesty, integrity, respect, trustworthiness, etc. If you had to pick specific myths to teach a lesson concerning one (or several) of these traits, which ones would you choose? (I would be covering Greek, Celtic, Norse, Egyptian, Hindu, Japanese and Chinese cultures.)

Thanks in advance!
