* Both the humans and terrians ''WesternAnimation/BattleForTerra'' have their own reasons. Terrians may have been PerfectPacifistPeople but [[spoiler: their devastating wars in the past]] acted as a catalyst for their society along with strict approval on any innovations [[spoiler: until they had to use past weaponry when the humans launched a full-scale invasion]]. Humans, at least the faction led by [[GeneralRipper General]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Hemmer]], are InvadingRefugees who lived their lives on a crumbling GenerationShip ([[spoiler: including dwindling air supplies]]) and Terra was to be colonized quickly before the aging ship fell apart.

The most realistic portrayal of a conflict's morality. In an all-grey conflict, neither side is [[BlackAndWhiteMorality totally good nor completely evil]]. [[BothSidesHaveAPoint Both sides have a strong, justifiable reason for fighting]], and contain a mixture of people of all kinds, from admirable, upstanding individuals to vicious, slimy scumbags.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Zootopia isn't as unified as it appears on the surface; almost everybody is shown to hold some kind of prejudice and/or stereotype. Everybody is a victim of bias, and everybody is a carrier of it, [[InnocentlyInsensitive even if they don't realize it]] until they get called out. However, there are light and dark ends of the spectrum. Those on the lighter side, like Judy, Nick, or Gideon, who try to move past their biases, acknowledge and apologize for their mistakes are the ones who help Zootopia truly become better. Those, [[spoiler:like Bellwether and the others involved in the anti-predator conspiracy]] who don't care who gets hurt/killed in their campaign, are definitely on the darker end.

->'''Wesley:''' There is a line, Lilah, black and white, good and evil.
->'''Lilah:''' Funny thing about black and white. You mix it together and you get grey. And it doesn't matter how much white you try and put back in, you're never gonna get anything but grey.

A result of the above is that Grey and Gray Morality has one potentially great advantage: It can be easier to maintain suspense regarding the ending. In BlackAndWhiteMorality, BlackAndGrayMorality and even WhiteAndGrayMorality situations, the ending is [[TheBadGuyWins almost]] always a [[TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin foregone conclusion; good wins in the end]], it's just a matter of how. In a Grey-and-Gray situation, either side might conceivably win, or both, or neither. Another great advantage of this kind of moral model is that the experience can end up entirely different between two viewers: one viewer may prefer to side with Faction A over Faction B for any number of different reasons, and another viewer may think the opposite for other reasons. Properly written, this can make for some ''very'' interesting story-telling. {{Video Game}}s in particular are a good medium for this, due to their interactive nature.
