* Played with in ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'', it turns out [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demons]] only play nice with one another because they are afraid if the balance between them skews too much it could bring about Armageddon. Also, its not good and evil having to keep in balance in this setting, but Light and Darkness. Also, the angels decide to renege on this agreement when they attempt to make a power play to destroy the known reality (taking out {{Hell}} and the human world) and remake it as one giant FluffyCloudHeaven.

* ''TheStainlessSteelRat's Revenge''. After being criticized for going on a crime spree, "Slippery Jim" [=diGriz=] explains that the government will reimburse the institutions he robbed, and that the crimes provided excitement for the populace, increased the sale of newspapers, provided exercise for the police and the opportunity for field exercises by the military. He suggests that he should be paid for this instead of punished.

* This is a pervasive theme in ''WreckItRalph''. Felix may be the celebrated hero of his game (and Ralph is the villain who's even looked down on behind the scene), but without Ralph to do his part, he's just a guy with a hammer and nothing to use it on. Worse, without Ralph, his game gets flagged as broken and scheduled to be disconnected.

* ''TwistedMetalIII'': Officers Jamie and Buzz Roberts, the drivers of Outlaw, wants a world clean and free of crime. If their wish is granted, they'll promptly find themselves unemployed because nobody needs police anymore.

* ''VampireInBrooklyn'': When Maximillian impersonates Preacher Pauley, he tells the congregation that "evil is good" because you can't appreciate the good things in life without bad things to give contrast.

* A different spin on this is pretty standard Christian theology, though: simply put, you can't truly do good if you don't have a choice to do evil. Hence all the bad things in the world-if God got rid of them, he would be taking away our free will so we would just be robots.

* A variation in ''RedDeadRedemption''; Dutch Van der Linde says that after the law enforcement agents beat him, they'll need another monster to justify their paycheck, so they'll create one if they have to. Admittedly, [[GrayAndGrayMorality neither side can be considered wholly good or evil]], but the principle is the same.

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' this is [[InvertedTrope inverted]] [[spoiler:by Amara the Darkness]]. She scoffs at the notion that she wants a world full of evil and asks Crowley if he seriously believes the world would be better off if ''everyone'' was evil. Crowley admits that corruptors like him would be bored and out of a job if there was no good left to corrupt. Evil needs Good.
