* Fagin from ''Theatre/Oliver!'' technically qualifies, though he works for NeutralEvil Bill Sykes his role as a leader of thieves is mostly to steal for survival. Actor Ron Moody arguably portrays Fagin's conniving ways most famously.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'',
** This applies to both Han Solo and Lando Calrissian]] in their initial appearances. They later moved toward ChaoticGood and NeutralGood in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
** The Hutts, a race of space gangsters. In the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse EU]] they switch sides to anyone that benefits their ends, or to the one who's winning.
*** Boba Fett is certainly this alignment, though he becomes more involved in the fate of the galaxy and the greater good in the EU.

* Captain Jack Sparrow ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean ''; a free-spirited {{Pirate}} who [[ObfuscatingStupidity may or may not]] be out of his gourd. May be AffablyEvil, may be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold - probably close enough to call him Neutral, and ''definitely'' Chaotic. He becomes a little more benevolent in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest second]] and [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd third movie]], when he returns to the Black Pearl to save his crew after running away from the kraken, and [[spoiler: sacrificing a chance for immortality in stabbing Davy Jones' heart to save Will's life]], leaning towards ChaoticGood, but still Chaotic Neutral.

* JD from ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' is this in spades. He's a serial killer, which would normally file him under "Evil." But, rather than being a purely sociopathic killer, he kills only the ''bullies'' at his high school with the intention of making the school a bit more livable for the other kids. He lies and manipulates people to fulfill this goal and has zero regard for rules or morals. In other words, he's a total free spirit.

* ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'' could be the poster child for this trope. He's a thief, a reaver, a slayer... and everything else you can think of where there's an opportunity for violence, wenches and loot. Including piracy, assassination, mercenary work and becoming warrior-king of the richest country on the continent, the only thing that separates him of being ChaoticEvil is that he never kills anyone who does not deserve it or not trying to kill him, and never resorts to force or coercion when bedding a woman. Later in his life and after becoming king, he prides himself in having lowered the taxes and reining in on the Aquilonian nobles' excesses, making his kingdom probably the best place the best place to live in the Hyborian Age, and stalwartly refuses to abdicate even under threat of death (and with the promise of gold if he does) because he doesn't want to legitimize the claim of his evildoing adversaries, therefore making him more a case of being ChaoticGood.

* Wrestling/{{Kane}} is another good example. He's been a face for a good portion of his career, but he's clearly not a case of DarkIsNotEvil. What makes him so popular with the crowds is simply because he's such an effective BadAss - that, and also the fact that he has often been bullied and tormented by even more evil wrestlers (not to speak of his near-death by burning at the hands of his "brother," Wrestling/TheUndertaker), resulting in him becoming a most unusual version of TheWoobie. (Most notably, it was hard not to sympathize with Kane during his feud with Evolution in 2003, during which Wrestling/TripleH dressed up as him and....well, if you've been to the wrestling section of the horrible thread, you know the rest). While Kane is undeniably a sadist and a monster, he only attacks people who actually deserve to have their ass kicked. He finally turned heel again in the summer of 2008 when he tortured Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr and stole his mask, although he seems to get cheered by the fans even now.
