** ''Babylon 5'' also has two racial examples as minor members of the [[HufflepuffHouse League of Non-Aligned Worlds]]. The Brakiri are nocturnal, have a mildly creepy humanoid appearance, and have a scary necromantic religion, but they are basically good people. The pak'ma'ra are {{Cthulumanoid}} carrion-eaters who are unpopular because of their lack of inhibitions about eating any corpse that falls into their hands even if it was sentient and its people wanted to give it a more formal funeral, but similarly they are among the good guys.

** [[InsistentTerminology Superstar]] Mark Callaway is best known for being "Wrestling/TheUndertaker", a [[ProfessionalWrestling wrestling]] gravedigger/zombie/death incarnate/cult leader/biker. Although he started off (and [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor every so often returns to being]]) a {{Heel}}, currently he's often treated as a Face, being one of the longest-tenured and popular currently active wrestlers.

** Brynden "Blackfish" also dresses mainly in black armour and is a bit of a bully, but he is far from evil.

** The alien enemies are, however, called "Shadows", and they do seem to be quite evil. Of course, both they and their counterparts [[spoiler:the Vorlons, who style themselves as shining angelic shapes when out of their encounter suits,]] are really AncientAliens with BlueAndOrangeMorality.

* Played fatally for laughs in this ''[[SaturdayNightLive SNL]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGWoRJO5d0M skit]]. Heaven's commitment to helping prayers is indeed doubtful when the messenger is ChristopherWalken adorned in black.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' comprise of a variety of HorrorTropes, and appear highly sinister, but they hardly ever do anything that could be considered evil. They are, in fact, for the most part perfectly friendly and decent people (probably the healthiest family on TV when it first aired), if more than a bit weird and possessing unquestionably morbid and bizarre tastes.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' comprise of a variety of HorrorTropes, and appear highly sinister, but they hardly ever do anything that could be considered evil. They are, in fact, for the most part perfectly friendly and decent people (probably the healthiest family on TV when it first aired), aired, and perhaps the most HappilyMarried too), if more than a bit weird and possessing unquestionably morbid and bizarre tastes.



** ''Film/TheAddamsFamily'' movies did see the odd bit of evil, or at least questionable, actions from the family, mostly from the children. It tended to take the form of IRL trolling or [[DisproportionateRetribution excessively severe punishments meted out on the family's enemies]].
*** Some of the darker gags in the movie (like the family dumping boiling oil on Christmas carolers) are based on the original Creator/CharlesAddams strips rather than the tv show, so any charge of {{Flanderization}} is probably inaccurate. As well, much like the characters in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', they do equally "nasty" things to each other (Wednesday electrocutes her brother for fun, and he seems to enjoy it) and don't seem to suffer any ill effects. Plus, the counselors at the camp really deserved it.
** Not only are the Addams family decent people, but they show an extraordinary amount of hospitality and generosity. Gomez, being the philanthropist that he is, regularly gives away surprisingly large sums of money to benefit the community. They've also been known to donate large sums to charities, something they also did in the first movie. Who could ask for better neighbors?
** Morticia and Gomez were clearly HappilyMarried (although the way they expressed affection towards each other could be... odd at times) and got away with public displays of affection at a time when television couples were universally portrayed as ''[[MoralGuardians sleeping in separate twin beds.]]'' (''Married'' television couples, [[WellIntentionedExtremist that is]].) It tells you something about TheSixties that their most healthy pop culture relationship was the one between a pair of ghouls...
*** Speaking of ghouls TheMunsters were allowed to sleep in the same bed together.

** First, there is House Stark itself - a family of unshaven, dark-haired frontiersmen from the [[GrimUpNorth bleak, murderous North]] who dress in black pelts and have a snarling BigBadassWolf on black cloth for a sigil... yet they're, unambiguously, the primary protagonists ''and'' heroes of the story, being one of the last families in Westeros that still puts HonourBeforeReason.
** Contrast that with House Lannister. A smaller house from the sunny south of Blondes that dons the much more heroic colour scheme of red and gold and have a lion in their crest would have easily passed as the good guys in any Anglophone HighFantasy story... instead of the dysfunctional, incestuous, backstabbing schemers that they actually are.
