* The original ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s multiplayer consists of Spartans (who are on the same side in the game's story). The sequel adds the enemy Elite aliens, but only after they had done a HeelRaceTurn.
** ''Videogame/Halo5Guardians'' is a straighter example in terms of its campaign, with Agent Locke hunting an AWOL Master Chief, and both are on the side of angels.[[note]]There is a BiggerBad both of them deal with.[[/note]]

* ''Film/{{Warrior}}''. Both brothers have equally compelling reasons for wanting to win the MMA championship, [[spoiler: one to keep his family home from foreclosing and the other to honor his fallen war buddy by taking care of his friend's family]].

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' pictured above, focuses on a battle between superheroes, with Captain America's Anti-Registration Team clashing with Iron Man's Pro-Registration Team. The climax
of his friend's family]].the film whittles down to just Captain America Vs. Iron Man.



* ''Film/OtherPeoplesMoney''. Jorgy and Larry have fundamentally, radically opposed notions of what a business is for and how one ought to be run, and this leads to an irreconcilable conflict between them, but they are both good men. One of the appealing things about the film is that it avoids the all too easy fallacy of portraying Larry as the bad guy.

* Early in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', while the overall conflict was grey and gray, the conflict between former friends Kira Yamato and Athrun Zala was very much this. Kira has no interest in the war, and just wants to protect the ship his friends are on. Athrun's a dedicated soldier, who has orders to sink the ship, but would like Kira to come over to his side of the war. It culminates in the two of them engaging in an apparent DuelToTheDeath, only to later find themselves on the same side, when [[BlackAndBlackMorality both their respective leaders]] turn out to be [[AxeCrazy insane]].

* ''ArTonelico2''. While people do truly horrifying things to each other, not a single faction is doing it out of selfish interest. Each one believes that they are doing the right thing for the world and the people who live in it, and each of them have their points. Even the MadScientist BigBad [[spoiler:Infel]] only wish to stop the suffering of the people [[spoiler: by BrainUploading every single soul into {{Instrumentality}}]], and she does this ''out of a sense of responsibility'' for failing to provide a paradise on earth long, long time ago. One can say that the point of Metafalica is that people are good, and they need to work together. [[spoiler: Metafalica is created when two maidens join their hearts]].

* ''DeadliestWarrior'': While a lot of the modern military battles could be seen this way, it doesn't get more "good" than the police vs. police face-off that was Los Angeles {{SWAT|Team}} vs [[UsefulNotes/WeAreNotTheWehrmacht German GSG 9]]. For instance, in our traditional "why the two armies would be at war" WildMassGuess discussion, our most popular scenario was that the SWAT and GSG 9 were using non-lethal paint rounds in a simulation battle (in contrast to our "the United States and Israel, once long-time allies, are now in a cold war" scenario).

This is not when the characters on both sides are [[GreyAndGreyMorality somewhat]] [[WhiteAndGreyMorality sympathetic]], merely [[WellIntentionedExtremist believe in their own actions]] without being fully sympathetic, or are in a [[LetsYouAndHimFight temporary conflict by mistake]]. No, this is when both sides are unambiguously Good AND locked in a real conflict with each other.

Expect to find one or more AlwaysLawfulGood races in such stories. This can tie into the philosophical struggle of what it means to be 'good'.
