* In ''VideoGame/TalesofBerseria'' the main characters go around destroying everything in their path and half of the party are anti-heroes of varying degrees. Their enemy, the Abbey however, are a group of WellIntentionedExtremists attempting to wipe out free will in order to rid the world of Malevolence, which causes humans to become Daemons [[spoiler: due to the effects of a curse placed on humans by the Seraphs of the Heavenly Realm]] who use *very* objectionable methods to achieve that end.

* King Folstet in ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' is regarded as a arrogant, sister-humping warmonger, but he ends up being one of the least morally-repugnant leaders in the series as well as the most moral monarchs compared to others such as King Helsent of Kaedwin who is [[UsefulNotes/JosefStalin Fantasy Josef Stalin]], as well as King Radovid of Temeria and Emperor Emhyr var Emreis, both of whom are practically [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Adolf Hitler stand-ins]], performing cleansing against undesirables (in this case magic users) and the latter going on in expansionist campaigns against other kingdoms that are generally regarded as inferiors.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Despite the series' overwhelming BlackAndGrayMorality, characters like the Starks, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen are portrayed sympathetically despite their more heinous actions.

*** What's strange about Lelouch and Suzaku's morality throughout the show is that while Lelouch does more dog-kicking, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone he generally feels bad about it.]] Suzaku, on the other hand, [[NeverMyFault always passes the blame onto someone else.]]

* ''IlivaisX'' inverts the usual here: Iriana may have been horribly broken by the Aztec Empire, but her goal isn't REALLY to end the war and create a free society, it's to get revenge. Meanwhile, both empires have been at war with each other for centuries, but they're mostly not bad people, and they've maintained a society that works very nicely for the people in all that time.

* From ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'', Merlin is a Type III AntiHero and Morgana is a WellIntentionedExtremist with ''very'' good reasons to want all of Camelot dead. Merlin has done nearly all the things Morgana has done, but he mostly does them reluctantly and Morgana often looks for an excuse to do them. Again, it's justified by her backstory [[note]] Look at BecameTheirOwnAntithesis for it[[/note]] but Merlin's still more sympathetic.

* In ''FinalFantasyTactics'', one side of the Lion War rallies behind Prince Goltana, the other behind Prince Larg, the church has got its fingers in the conflict, [[spoiler: not to mention the Lucavi,]] and then there's your player group. Out of the two main sides involved in the war, those siding with Prince Larg come out looking more like good guys, in general, by virtue of not having [[MagnificentBastard Delita]] on their side. Out of all groups, though, the player's party comes out looking like the best good guys of all, but whether that's due to the main character's [[UnwittingPawn being played]] or being honestly virtuous is a matter of debate.

* The Five in ''{{ComicBook/Birthright}}'' are a ragtag group of mages from another dimension that are sworn to defend Earth from an extremely powerful entity that has taken control of their home. With that said, their members range from being selfish that are OnlyInItForTheMoney to [[KnightTemplar Knight Templars]] that have no problem murdering innocents, and as a whole, the group is largely indifferent to collateral damage so long its to stop their enemy from invading Earth although, in order for him to do this, he has to kill each of the Five who serve as [[BarrierMaiden living barriers]]. It speaks volumes that the nicest member of the group is treated as a deadbeat parent to their family.

* '''VideoGame/{{Madworld}}''. Jack, by his own words kills people rather than helping them and participates in a snuff competition, Death Watch. [[spoiler: Leo's Dad]] organized Death Watch [[spoiler: as a cover to show off his virus which, in the context of Death Watch all it did was clear out most of the innocent bystanders, cleanly overshadowed by THE FUCKING DEATH WATCH.]] And [[spoiler: Leo]] is even worse, who helped with the plan ForTheEvulz. So naturally Jack kills them all with relish.
