* The Doomguy/Doom Slayer from Franchise/{{Doom}} is mostly famous for being a demon-gutting badass, but he murdered his own commanding officer for ordering him to fire upon civilians and shows deep contempt for [[VideoGame/Doom2016 Samuel Hayden]] because his attempts to mine Hell for energy cost the lives of many good men.

* [[HotBlooded Eren Yeager]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is definitely this alignment. His greatest desire is to finally rid his world from Titan scum, he is ambitious and highly determined to end the suffering that has swept his people for generations. Impulsive is an understatement, yet nothing stands in his way for long when he goes [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge absolutely ape-shit]] in his Titan form.

* The Straw Hats from ''Manga/OnePiece''. They're pirates, and certainly don't have any respect for the law -- but are more than happy to help out or stand up for complete strangers.

* Most of the ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' are of this alignment, except Drax, who is True Neutral (since vengeance is all that drives him) and Rocket, who is textbook Chaotic Neutral.

* Most Chaotic Good characters don't constantly break the law, but they cannot see much value in laws, or do not see the value in laws that do not function solely to punish evil). They believe that their own consciences are their best guides, and that tying themselves to any given code of conduct would be limiting their own ability to do good. They do not get along with anyone who tries to instill any kind of order over the Chaotic Good character or others, believing these people to be restricting their freedom and the freedom of others; however, most Chaotic Good characters will respect the right of others to impose strong codes of conduct on themselves. Chaotic Good characters often focus very strongly on individual rights and freedoms, and will strongly resist any form of oppression of themselves or anyone else.

** THE Chaotic Good from Gundam, [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Neo Japanese Fighter Domon Kasshu]]. He started as ChaoticNeutral, caring about fighting and his mission, but eventually develops into this.
** Duo Maxwell from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' fits this. Starting off as TrueNeutral, Heero Yuy also becomes this after a great amount of CharacterDevelopment.
*** [[HeroAntagonist Zechs Marquise]] might fit this as well, though the rival to Heero Yuy. While having done several questionable acts such as working for Treize Kushrenada (both wish to show the world the horror of war, though) and joining the White Fang Revolution to destroy Earth, his main motive was to fight for he and his sister Relena's ruined homeland and to fight for the oppressed colonists. In Endless Waltz, he rejoins the fight to assist his former rival Heero in suppressing Dekim Barton's rebellion against his sister.
** We also have Garrod Ran from ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]''
** Cagalli Yula Athha from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' is a RebelliousPrincess example. She even joined a LaResistance group at one point in the story. This actually causes her difficulties when she becomes leader of her country and cannot rule through sheer force of personality.
** [[BigGood Balance Seeker]] Lacus Clyne ended up leading LaResistance in both ''SEED'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny SEED Destiny]]''. Nobody ever sees her coming.

* Nagi Springfield of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', the main character's super powerful DisappearedDad. He would take out enemy hideouts even when he's not supposed to, blast suspicious politicians with no regard to consequences, and would charge into the fray to save princesses from their sad fates with nary a thought. During a GreyAndGrayMorality StoryArc, a former ally of his said that Nagi would have theoretically helped the HeroAntagonist who planned to reveal the {{Masquerade}} since it would eventually led to mages moving freely and saving more lives. The chaotic effects a BrokenMasquerade would have had on society would have been a detail he wouldn't have dwelled too much on.

* [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] is an interesting case; he considers himself LawfulGood, in that he wants to create a world where he can [[KnightTemplar universally punish ANYONE who does wrong]]. However, to do this, he has to break every conceivable law in order to dole out justice until he can convince everyone it's the proper way. Along the way (or possibly from the very start), he [[AGodAmI forgets he's still human]] and thinks he's AboveGoodAndEvil, not realizing or caring that most people who begin to zealously follow "Kira's" beliefs do so out of ''fear'' rather than proper admiration (but there are a few exceptions), while the rest of the world considers him LawfulEvil at ''best''.
** An ''actual'' Chaotic Good character from Death Note (and possibly the only true one in the entire series) is Touta Matsuda, who doubles as a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass. Even as a policeman, he's constantly questioning whether going after Kira is a good thing, is the first in the task force to volunteer to get Shinigami eyes, and breaks into a corporate office building and shortly thereafter ''fakes his own death'' to gather evidence. To top it all off, [[spoiler: he's the one who shoots Light to stop him from killing Near, even though Near's motives still remain unclear to the task force.]]

* The definitive Chaotic Good hero of Franchise/TheDCU is Oliver "Ollie" Queen, aka Comicbook/GreenArrow. He is JustLikeRobinHood -- a former MillionairePlayboy who gave up his fortune (or lost it to corrupt business partners, depending on which version of the background you go by) to devote himself to protecting the less fortunate from crooked politicians, {{Dirty Cop}}s, {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, and any LawfulEvil person who says ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney.
** Green Arrow's sidekicks, the past and present Speedies, also fit this trope.
** The second Comicbook/GreenArrow, Connor Hawke, started out LawfulGood. He may have slipped down to NeutralGood, though. Connor is still more or less the voice of reason at Chez Arrow, though.
** However, this does lead to conflicts with those of differing beliefs, such as against Barry Allen, due to Barry being with the police. While both are friends with Hal Jordon, they don't get along very well in the comics (HilariousInHindsight considering they're good friends in the Arrow/Flash tvshows.)
* Comicbook/AmbushBug, from DC Comics, most certainly counts. He is completely batshit insane, and most of the time doesn't even seem to be aware of what is going on, doing wild chaotic things that hardly make sense to anyone but himself, but is firmly on the side of good.
* DependingOnTheWriter, if he isn't LawfulGood, Franchise/{{Batman}} is usually Chaotic Good. Rejects authority, not a team player, deals out his own justice, etc.
* The Comicbook/{{New 52}} Franchise/{{Superman}} (and UsefulNotes/{{the Golden Age|OfComicBooks}} version) definitely fits this alignment: physically intimidating corrupt businessmen and politicians, wanted by the police, and focused on helping everyone (especially the poor) regardless of what the laws are.
* The Comicbook/IncredibleHulk practically embodies this trope; he is a force for good at almost all times, but is almost completely unpredictable and wants to be left alone. (DependingOnTheWriter, though, he sometimes enters ChaoticNeutral territory.)
* The Comicbook/NewGods of New Genesis, who represent the freedom and joy of doing the right thing uncompelled, [[OrderVersusChaos in contrast to]] the LawfulEvil {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} who seeks to eliminate free will.

* DependingOnTheWriter, if he isn't LawfulGood, Franchise/{{Batman}} ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' is usually Chaotic Good. Rejects authority, not a team player, deals out his own justice, etc.
* The Comicbook/{{New 52}} ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'' Franchise/{{Superman}} (and UsefulNotes/{{the Golden Age|OfComicBooks}} version) definitely fits this alignment: physically intimidating corrupt businessmen and politicians, wanted by the police, and focused on helping everyone (especially the poor) regardless of what the laws are.

They will drive you batty. But they're definitely '''good'''. Hoka {{Pirate}}s were deeply offended at being ''told'' they had to give back their loot after they sacked a city; did you take them for ''thieves''?
* Kestrel from ''The Wind Singer'' is a Chaotic Good character. Naturally, she lives in a LawfulEvil dictatorship. Her twin brother, Bowman, verges on Chaotic Good, but he's mostly following his sister.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', the eponymous wizard Harry Dresden falls into this trope. As of now, he is currently on the bad side of the supposedly LawfulNeutral council of wizards (who've tried to have him killed and/or framed a few times), is under a hit from most of the ChaoticEvil court of vampires and a group of fallen angels, probably would be arrested on sight if he were ever to walk into a police station -- simply for having the gall to walk into a police station, and is trying to discover a super evil secret society of bad wizards that have infiltrated the aforementioned council. All after he's saved the world at least twice. Just because he finds the idea of flouting city regulations to be "aesthetically pleasing."

Agnes may not be chaotic, but her SplitPersonality Perdita clearly is. Magrat is probably NeutralGood, but her "channeling" of Queen Ynci ([[spoiler:there's no such person, it was her all along]]) suggests a slight chaotic bent as well. Witches are fine with rules, but make it absolutely clear that they ''do not'' apply to them.
*** As it happens, Witches do have rules they're supposed to follow. But, as Nanny herself once said, if you're gonna break a rule, break it good and hard.

** Usually assumed stereotypical alignment for Red/White by non-savvy fans, because White is the colour most stereotypically associated with good and Red is always associated with chaos, not in the least because the most visible Red/White faction, the Boros, are ''presented'' as such. However, in actually very few Red/White characters have been Chaotic Good: the Boros themselves in canon are firmly associated with the law, and under [[KnightTemplar Aurelia]] have degenerated into borderline LawfulEvil, while the Lorwyn Nobilis of War and associated races are ChaoticEvil.

* The members of the VideoGame/StarFox team are valuable heroes to the Lylat system who have repeatedly foiled the schemes of MadScientist Andross, and the HiveMind alien creatures called Aparoids. Their leader, Fox [=McCloud=], has also repeatedly turned down offers to become a part of the Cornerian army, saying that they prefer doing things their own way as mercenaries and bounty hunters.
* Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog and VideoGame/{{NiGHTS|IntoDreams}} are good examples of Chaotic Good: the former a free spirit who's more than happy to help anyone in need, the latter a DefectorFromDecadence who "doesn't follow orders and hates bullies like Wizeman."
** During ''Sonic and the Black Knight'', Sonic tells the main villain that "He doesn't mind playing the bad guy" once in a while. [[spoiler:In fairness, he was doing the right thing, but doing so would mean the world of KingArthur would die like it's supposed to.]]

* Mission Vao and Jolee Bindo in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' (though Jolee would probably claim to be TrueNeutral). Mira in the sequel, and a light-side Exile can turn Atton into one as well.
** Jolee can talk all he wants to about his neutrality, but his actions speak louder than his words. If the PlayerCharacter decides to join TheDarkSide, Jolee will suddenly drop all of his pretentions and fight to stop you. Jolee also saves his best snark for calling WhatTheHellHero on malicious player actions.

* Mission's SpiritualSuccessor Vette is also of this alignment in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. The Smuggler and his / her crew tend to lean to this direction by default.

** Starting with Firion from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', the series has done the classic Chaotic Good rebel, with the LawfulEvil Empire several times. It is also fairly common for Thieves to be this.

He's got a weak spot for pretty girls to the point where they're the only thing that can keep his temper from doing something downright suicidal (like challenging Rubicante a second time after the Fiend just effortlessly trounced him.) He's also brash, loud, hotheaded and arrogant, but his heart's in the right place and he becomes a loyal friend to the team.

Setzer also qualifies; he openly admits that the most important thing in life is being free from any obligations. He's also more than willing to bet his life on the flip of a coin. He IS a gambler, after all.
** AVALANCHE from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. This refers to Cloud's group, which is the latest incarnation of AVALANCHE. Barret's AVALANCHE had shades of being ChaoticNeutral, while the first incarnation of AVALANCHE were most definitely '''NOT''' this trope.

** Paragon Shepard slowly veers from LawfulGood into this alignment from the end of the first game onwards, where they go rogue, steal the ''Normandy'', and defy the Council's orders not to head to Ilos.

By the second game, when the Council refuses to take the Reapers and Collector threat seriously, Shepard is forced to work with Cerberus in order to end the threat. By the third game, Shepard barely seems to consult the Council ''at all'' before making decisions of Galactic importance and part of the plot even involves going to the heads of state for each race ''directly'', cutting their Council representatives completely.
** Even if you don't get the Salarian leader's thumbs up you can still wind up with half the Salarian military pledged to your cause by their respective commanding officers having more sense about the big picture of the war.

** As a more definite example, this is how the followers of Atlas and Lamb viewed themselves, fighting against the Rapture hierarchy. Diane [=McClintock=] (an idealist rebel under Atlas's command and Ryan's former mistress), Grace Holloway (an anti-Ryan jazz singer and key supporter of Doctor Lamb), the assassins in Hephaestus (like Kyburz and Anya Andersdotter) (who all attempted to bring an end to Ryan's by-now LawfulEvil government by taking the law and the greater good of the city into their own hands) and, following her HeelFaceTurn, Tenenbaum (kidnapping Little Sisters from official control and leaving them in the sewers beneath Olympus Heights) are some character examples.
*** And Ryan's original founding of Rapture was motivated by a desire to escape what he believed to be an evil hierarchy on the surface world, and ultimately to indirectly destroy it by removing the greatest minds from the reach of the parasites. Ryan's [[{{Hypocrite}} loyalty to his]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}} convictions]] did not last, and he slowly shifted to LawfulEvil as he jettisoned his principles in favor of power.
*** It's more complex than that. Enforcing an Objectivist utopia is actually a contradiction in terms. When Ryan realizes this, he refuses to admit his error and drifts toward his despotic persona.
*** It is interesting that in the case of Fountaine, the roles are reversed -- he considers himself an [[ChaoticNeutral opportunist smuggler]], while in fact, he caters to the actual needs of the Rapture citizens.
** Augustus Sinclair has shades of this, particularly of the NobleDemon variety. Although he claims to be out for himself primarily, he encourages Delta to not kill unnecessarily and does whatever he can to help him, even taking personal risks ([[spoiler:also, unlike Fontaine, he doesn't end up betraying Delta...

Having matured that much but much the same as before otherwise, she could be considered Chaotic Good after this.

However, she goes absolutely ballistic against unambiguously evil people (like [[spoiler:Gideon]] and [[spoiler:Bill Cipher]]).

to:

* %%* T.J. Detweiler from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' (this goes for the other five in his gang as well, but he's TheLeader in their adventures).
* [[RebelLeader Caleb]] %%* RebelLeader Caleb from ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}''
* %%* Wheeljack, from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. This occasionally puts him at odds with more conservative Autobots such as Ratchet and [[spoiler:Ultra Magnus]].
* Coop from ''Westernanimation/MegasXLR'', sure ''Westernanimation/MegasXLR''. Sure he saves the day, but he causes way more destruction to the city than any of the enemies he fights.
* Connie from ''Westernanimation/StevenUniverse'' sits in a strange place, as her parents are very firmly LawfulNeutral and expect her to be too. When placed outside their immediate vision however vision, however, she’s impulsive, aggressive, cheerful and brave, and states that she loves hanging out with Steven because of all the monsters and explosions that surround him. She notes that her favourite part of the book series she likes is the subtle anti-authoritarian message (that may be entirely in her head).
* Mabel Pines from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' qualifies. Her [[CloudCuckooLander extreme unpredictability]] is a defining trait of her character. As seen in "The Deep End", she won't let any rules stand in her the way to do of doing what she believes is right.
