She has long despised the Tribunal for defying her, [[TheRashomon possibly]] murdering her champion (the original Nerevar), and stealing her most devout worshipers.

* Yoshimura, the grandfatherly and wise manager of Anteiku Cafe in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. A decade prior to the series, he came to the 20th Ward and took over leadership of the Ghouls living there, making it into the most peaceful ward in Tokyo. The cafe serves as a safe haven for the ward's Ghouls, allowing them to gather together to socialize or exchange information in a neutral location. Under his leadership, territories are fairly divided and weaker Ghouls are provided scavenged meat, with his policy being to never turn his back on a Ghoul in need. Anteiku takes in Kaneki when he finds himself transformed into a HalfHumanHybrid, and helps him adjust to life as a Ghoul. Yoshimura provides wisdom and guidance to the young man, but also serves as a major threat that both [[AntiHumanAlliance Aogiri]] and [[CreatureHuntingOrganization CCG]] both consider vital to remove. The sequel shows that [[spoiler: with Anteiku destroyed and Yoshimura captured by Aogiri]], Aogiri has managed to become an incredibly powerful group forcing neutral Ghouls to work for them, and CCG is struggling to counter their rapid expansion.

** [[spoiler: Turns out he does just fine. He rebuilds the Dark One's prison the way it used to be before the Bore was created. In a twist, the crucial aid he needs comes from the example of all the heroes in the series, making them possible Big Goods to his The Hero.]]

*** Although Korra is a more complicated example. The complex politics of her era (as opposed to the straightforward clashing of monolithic states in Aang's time) combined with her short temper often leave her being manipulated by {{Magnificent Bastard}}s and {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s, which compromises her position.

* TRON and Kevin Flynn in ''Franchise/{{Tron}}'' split the duties. Tron is the legendary warrior and rallying point for Programs in the fight against Master Control in the first film. In WesternAnimation/TronUprising, he's once again the rebellion's rallying point, with Beck [[TakeUpTheMantle taking on the symbol]] to fight Tesler, since Tron's too badly injured to fight himself. And in the AlternateContinuity of [[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]], he's the focus of a KingInTheMountain myth that states he'll return to defend the Programs in their darkest hour. [[note]] Nothing comes of it in the game itself, though the protagonist of 2.0 could, from a certain point of view, be considered Tron's little brother. The ''Killer App'' sequel, however, plays it straight with Tron being brought out of stasis to fight a viral attack [[/note]] Flynn is the Big Good (or Bigger Good) in the ''Film/TronLegacy'' canon, as he's essentially the system's local ''deity,'' overthrown and exiled by his own avatar on the digital side of the screen while his analog-world friends fight to keep the [[InformationWantsToBeFree ideals he stood for]] going at Encom. Of course, both have been subjected to a lot of AlternateCharacterInterpetation
