* In ''Fanfic/LoxareHinder'', it seems to be a recurrent mentality for any "big" hero: the Batfamily struggles very much with Jason's decision to murder criminals while Superman straight-up assaulted Red Hood because "killing is bad and mean, no matter the circumstances".

* Characterization: [[ShapedLikeItself The good guys are good]], and the [[ObviouslyEvil bad guys are bad]]. If there are any morally ambiguous or grey characters around (such as an AntiHero or WorthyOpponent), they will eventually shift firmly to one side or the other. They'll either [[FaceHeelTurn switch]] to the side that matches their [[HeelFaceTurn actual perceived alignment]], or turn [[BadassDecay fully good]] or [[SlowlySlippingIntoEvil fully evil]]. Minor characters may maintain some degree of neutrality, but the major characters will all be on one side or the other. Occasionally there will be a short scene explaining the [[AccompliceByInaction neutrality is inherently evil]] (or, very rarely, good). To avoid an AuthorTract, some writers prefer to claim that being neutral is similar to [[IFightForTheStrongestSide supporting the stronger side]]. However, as the Neutral Neutral page on this Wiki will show, the reasons for being neutral number in the double digits, not including Lawful Neutral and Chaotic Neutral, or any combination thereof.

*** It should also be noted that in most christian denominations, this kind of dualism isnít equal. God is good and has no equal in evil, Satan doesnít even come close cause God created him and everything else. Since God is absolutely good and has 'existed' before evil came to the world, theologians have theorized that good can actually exist without evil and that evil itself is a corruption of what was originally good, meaning evil canít exist without good.

** Almost. There are three major exceptions: Big Barda (started as a Female Fury soldier of Apokolips, underwent a HighHeelFaceTurn), Orion (Darkseid's son, but raised by Highfather, who rehabilitated him to mostly Good but with a violent temper), and Metron (approaching True Neutral).

* In ''TabletopGame/BlueRose'', your CharacterAlignment is either {{Light|IsGood}}, [[DarkIsEvil Shadow]] or Twilight (neutral). There's a magic artifact used to make sure [[OnlyThePureOfHeart only light-aligned people]] get to become nobles in TheKingdom of Aldis.

* [[EverybodyHatesHades The Hollywood version of many mythologies]] tends to fit this; the real mores of such cases tend to be much more, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality subtle]].

* InspectorJavert of ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' provides an in-universe example since he has an obsessive, legalistic view of the world, with [[WellIntentionedExtremist an extreme sense of right and wrong]], such that his passion drives him [[ToBeLawfulOrGood to be lawful over being reasonable]] (even though he's free of hardly any actual, well, ''villainy'' otherwise).

*** Matthew 7:18: "A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither ''can'' a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." No middle ground is even hinted at.
