* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' gives General Leo the description of "the guy with principles." Sabin even notes "he could be my friend, if he weren't my enemy." Leo is the most anti of [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]] in the whole ''Final Fantasy'' franchise, as AFatherToHisMen who minimizes casualties on both sides, and always acts polite, even to his enemies. When Kefka starts killing people at random, Leo [[ThisIsUnforgivable has enough of Kefka's dishonorable tactics]] [[DuelBoss and fights him]]. Too bad for Leo that Kefka fights dirty, [[KilledOffForReal killing Leo with a literal backstab]]. Leo proved so popular that, to this day, [[UrbanLegendOfZelda there's still speculation that he can be returned to the party]].

* Jowy Atreides, from ''SuikodenII''. A long time friend of the main hero, Riou, he is destined to come into conflict due to picking up opposing runes (Jowy picks up the Black Sword Rune and Riou the Bright Shield Rune). Jowy ends up betraying and murdering (although not willingly) the mayor of Muse, Anabelle. He ends up becoming king of Highland. He ends up as a Hero Antagonist because he helps bring down Luca Blight, as well as using his strength to keep the Beast Rune at bay. He ends up having the same goals as Riou, to end the war and to unify the land. The problem is that he and his friend, Riou, lead opposing forces. His love of the orphan Pilika truly drives Jowy in his goals for peace.

* With the exception of [[AxCrazy Leon]], the Imperial Army of ''YggdraUnion'' are actually honest and sometimes ''heroic'' characters who are simply fighting for their own beliefs.

* Unlike the original film ''{{Tron}}'', security programs in ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' are not servants of the evil MCP. Here, they're simply doing their job of protecting the system from TheVirus. Unfortunately, Kernel, the chief security program, thinks ''you'' are the cause of the infection and tries to hunt you down, forcing you to fight security programs.

** Matsudai is a classic IdiotHero -- impulsive, well-meaning, slightly self-centered everyman who's ultimately devoted to his TrueCompanions. He spends the whole series opposing a serial killer, since he is a cop. He just so happens to be working against VillainProtagonist Light.
** Soichiro [[spoiler:until towards the end]], and he is described by the author as the only one-hundred-percent good character. However neither he nor Matsudai are Light's direct antagonist as such, while L [[spoiler:and Near]] are.

** One filler arc included the presence of a rational, normal [[FatherToHisMen Marine captain]], who had no strange abilities or quirks, but was led by some crazy, immensely fat admiral and his equally stupid lieutenant, who where on par with all the early, lighter One Piece villians.

* In ''Film/{{Troy}}'', Hector is pulled into the war by default as his city is attacked by the Greeks. While his little brother, Paris, is far from innocent, Hector himself is the mirror image of our protagonist, Achilles, who is also motivated to duel to defend his younger brother's honor.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Unlike most authority figures in previous X-Men movies, the cops who attempt to bring Magneto in show little malice towards mutants as a whole, and seem solely interested in arresting a terrorist. [[spoiler:The death of Erik's daughter is accidental; the result of a cop getting distracted and losing his grip on his bow,]] and all the cops react with appropriate horror.

Compare the KnightTemplar, whose devotion to 'good' ideals has become unreasoning fanaticism and he refuses to see how evil he is. Often (though not always, depending on how [[MoralityTropes the morality is played]] in the work) will oppose their inverse, the VillainProtagonist. Compare HeroOfAnotherStory.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has [[spoiler:Taro Namatame, who started kidnapping people after the death of Saki Konishi due to being tricked into believing that [[EldritchLocation TV World]] was a shelter from the true killer, not knowing that everyone he threw into the TV was saved due to the efforts of the main character and his friends. The player, at the behest of the party who are convinced he's the real killer, can either punish him by tossing him into the TV and letting him get slaughtered by Shadows (leading to the worst ending), or hear him out, where they will learn his side of the story and he, in turn, will understand what he's done and willingly accepting the consequences.]]
