* Choices: All major choices that the heroes are faced with are either unambiguously right or wrong. There are no grey areas at all, and when a SadisticChoice ''is'' presented, there's always a [[TakeAThirdOption third option]]. Furthermore, the heroes will ''always'' make the right choice, unless they're about to learn AnAesop or pull a FaceHeelTurn.

* ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'': The heroes are good and noble, and always right , while the villains all KickTheDog like they're in an international dog-kicking competition.

* Invoked in ''TheDarkEye'' by a kind of the FairFolk, who decided to split into a "good" and an "evil" kingdom faring war against each other to learn more about human behaviour and values.

* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' no matter the reason(s) behind a crime; Shinichi/Conan will state that it is ''still'' wrong and the criminal must face the consequences for their actions.



* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': In every conflict, there's generally two sides: The Z Fighters (clearly good) and whoever they're fighting, who's clearly bad. Even though many characters may start out somewhat ambiguous, being an AntiHero or even an outright villain, they firmly cement themselves on the side of good before too long. Even Vegeta who spends the series in a HeelFaceRevolvingDoor settles into the side of good eventually. At no point is there ever a question as to whether the ArcVillain du jour is justified or anything but a villain. Averted with the TV special ''Bardock- The Father of Goku'', which goes straight into BlackAndGreyMorality territory with Bardock and the Saiyans on the grey end and Frieza on the black end.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SoldierOfOrange'': The Dutch resistance and their British allies are clearly heroic, the German occupiers and their fascist collaborators are clearly evil. Notably, this contrasts with Verhoeven's later film ''Film/{{Zwartboek}}'', which applies BlackAndGrayMorality to the same conflict.

* Most comic books set in the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] (World War II or thereabouts) and the [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] have this sort of moral code.

** As pictured above, [[Franchise/FireEmblem Queen Elincia]] and the Herons are good, but Mad King Ashnard is evil. [[spoiler: However, his steed isn't evil, just {{Brainwashed}}.]] But then there's Naesala, who's more morally ambiguous, as well as several Daein commanders who fight for Ashnard [[LawfulNeutral more out of a sense of duty for their nation then being outright evil.]]

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' is one of the few Marvel movies to follow this morality exactly (in fact, aversions include this movie's own sequel). This is justified in-story through the SuperSerum that created both Captain America and his enemy the Red Skull, as it enhances people's true qualities--good becomes great, bad becomes worse. Steve Rogers is an idealistic, friendly guy who just wants to do his duty for his country by fighting bad guys, and becomes a capable war hero. Red Skull is a bullying Nazi extremist too evil even for Hitler, is so narcissistic as to have a god complex, and becomes an OmnicidalManiac.
** ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'': Thor and his allies (with the exception of [[EnemyMine Loki]] are heroic paragons, and their Dark Elf enemies just want to destroy the universe for no real reason.
