* In ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', Aqua Regina [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]] the entire Panthalassa race under the ocean for the ambiguous crimes of their EvilOverlord. The first main villain, Gackto ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS or Gakuto, or Gaito...]]), is the prince of the Panthalassa, escaped from the seal and seeking revenge... or that's what we're supposed to think. [[spoiler:Actually, although he was miserable under the sea and glad to be free, his real motivation is revenge for someone else, someone who happens to be from the previously "all good" mermaid race.]] Around the time of this [[TheReveal reveal]], we also learn that there are good Panthalassa, too. Aqua Regina punishes those that went against her for the destruction that they caused, but she finally realizes after thousands of years that there are good and bad members of all races.

* Dark Elves are evil or require specific qualifers, especially because "Elf" tends to have [[OurElvesAreBetter a more specific meaning nowadays]]. Ironically, the "modern" [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarf]] is probably more faithful to the original Norse idea, and don't need specific moral qualifiers; ''drow'', often conflated with dark elves in modern fantasy, were originally a goblin-like fairy of Scottish folklore.
* Most oni (a sort of Japanese ogre) who appear in {{anime}} tend to be rather nasty creatures, even though this isn't part of the original mythos. "Good" oni tend to be just dumb brutish creatures.
* Modern stories set in WizardingSchool handily remove the need for moral qualifiers by making Wizarding academic. (You don't ban physics classes because it makes {{Mad Scientist}}s, after all.)

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'' Magister Magi help people as his job, still most of them seem do it because of good will. By contrast [[NobleDemon Evangeline]] states, that when you ask an evil mage for help, you have to pay a price.

In many of the original myths and legends, spirits and monsters are not explicitly said to be good or evil. Often, they're just mischievous or powerful with a weird sense of humor, and reasonable people give them lip service but otherwise leave them alone. After centuries of [[MemeticMutation modifying]], [[MoralGuardians demonizing]] and [[AdaptationDecay adapting]] the stories, sometimes certain terms became associated with [[CharacterAlignment certain deeds]]. Sometimes this is a simplification to appeal to or educate young audiences, who supposedly [[ViewersAreMorons require clear morality in characters]].
