* Very common in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', although the good side not controlled by the player is generally more "[[ShootTheDog ends justify the means]]," and willing to employ genuinely evil in their pursuit of noble goals.

* The ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series. Especially the N64-version. Not a single evil character. In ''Brawl'''s story mode, even the villains pull a HeelFaceTurn at the end and then everyone gangs up on the EldritchAbomination EnergyBeing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheShahnameh'': Rostam versus Esfandiar is this. Esfandiar wants to arrest Rostam so that he can become king, because he thinks his time has come and he would do a good job and he's probably right. Rostam has dedicated his life to defending Iran and thinks it's unfair and unreasonable that he should be humiliated and he's definitely right!

* Wrestling/{{TNA}} had Ken Anderson, Wrestling/JeffHardy and Wrestling/KurtAngle go into a three way for the TNA Heavyweight title; all were faces, but Jeff Hardy turned heel at the conclusion with the reveal of the Immortal.

Added DiffLines:

* The episode "Stolen" from Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit boils down to this. The detectives bust a baby snatching-and-selling operation, and during the investigation they come upon a boy whose kidnapping case is of personal interest to [[BigGood Captain Cragen]]. At the insistence of the boy's maternal grandparents, who lost their daughter and have been desperately searching for the boy for years (even filling a bedroom with what they think he would want for his birthday and Christmas every year), they track him down and try to reunite him with his father, who up until then has never known he existed but would be more than happy to take him in. Unfortunately, the boy is HappilyAdopted, and his adoptive parents have devoted their entire lives to raising him well. The subsequent court case is particularly heartbreaking, with the judge declaring that neither side deserves to lose and that her final decision will haunt her for the rest of her days. [[spoiler:She rules in favor of the boy's biological family, but at her insistence, his father allows him to maintain contact with his adoptive parents.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The fight between [[spoiler:Brienne of Tarth and the Hound]] in Season 4. They are both trying to protect the same person, and both two of the only characters with genuinely selfless motives, and because they fight to both of their near deaths they leave [[spoiler: Arya Stark]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero completely unaccompanied.]]

** Catelyn tries to avoid this by proposing that Stannis and Renly join forces against the Lannisters. Unfortunately, both brothers are unyielding in their quest to be king.

* It has been said by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki that no Creator/StudioGhibli film is intended to have a specific "bad" guy as a villain but rather characters who are good or at the very least is capable of change and whose wants run counter to our protagonists in some way, if there is a specific antagonist which can be defined (see ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'', ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' and ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'' where there is no antagonist or what bad there is is nebulous in nature). Some of his earlier works did have very defined evil characters (such as Muska in ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' and the Torumekians in ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'') however though this has lessened over time to be more GoodVersusGood.

* The majority of the Kings featured in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', and the accompanying ''Series/GameOfThrones'' TV adaptation, are a murky shade of good at worst. Robb Stark, and to a lesser extent Stannis are all portrayed as this. Renly tries to [[VillainWithGoodPublicity convey this image]], but is more a deconstruction of TheGoodKing, coming across more as TheEvilPrince with his scheming to take power for no real reason other then he has a large army and a very high opinion of himself.

* Fanfic/FateStayNightUltimateMaster has [[Ben10UltimateAlien Ben Tennyson]] taking part in the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Holy Grail War]]. Since the Holy Grail War follow the ThereCanBeOnlyOne system, he inevitably ends up clashing with ''Fate/Stay Night'' protagonists [[KnightInShiningArmor Shirou]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Rin]], despite their goals being the same (prevent the Holy Grail from falling into the wrong hand). Later chapters, however, suggest this will change.
