%%* Duke Michael in ''ThePrisonerOfZenda''. Unquestionably a better person and ruler than the legitimate king, and almost as good as the main character.

** A few of the Marine Officers the main characters have to face are genuinely good guys who actually want to protect the public and don't view [[MoralEventHorizon civilians]] and their own soldiers as being [[WeHaveReserves completely expendable]]. Notable examples are Smoker and Tashigi (who have practically achieved FriendlyEnemy status with the Straw Hats), T-Bone (AFatherToHisMen), Coby (Luffy's old friend), Garp (Luffy's grandfather), Kuzan (a.k.a. Aokiji) and Issho (a.k.a. Fujitora).

* Most of the characters in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''[='s=] Universe Survival Saga, since they're fighting in order to prevent their universes and everyone in them from being erased from existence. In particular, Universe 11's Pride Troopers are a group of straight-up superheroes who fight ForGreatJustice, Universe 2's team is a trio of {{Magical Girl}}s and their allies who fight for love, and Universe 6 has already been established as being full of good people ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Frost]]) who befriended the protagonists over the course of ''Super''. Some of them antagonize Goku because they blame him for what's happening[[note]]Goku suggested the tournament, but Zen-O decided to use it as an excuse to get rid of some of the universes. Several observers remark that since the tournament at least spares one universe (whereas before Zen-O was going to erase the bottom eight no questions asked), people should be ''thanking'' Goku for giving them a fighting chance.[[/note]]; [[BloodKnight he's perfectly willing to be labeled the villain if it means people will fight him with everything they've got]]. In fact, he willingly admits that the Pride Troopers have one up on him because they're superheroes and he's just a martial artist looking for a good fight.

Thus, everyone is literally fighting for survival, not just for themselves but for countless lives. Some universes fit this better than others, though: Universe 11's Pride Troopers 9 is portrayed as a massive WretchedHive and its fighters are a group of straight-up almost universally {{Jerk Ass}}es, while Universe 10 and 2's teams are outright superheroes who fight ForGreatJustice, Universe 2's team is (the former a riff on Franchise/SuperSentai and the latter consisting of a trio of {{Magical Girl}}s and their allies who fight for love, supporters) and most of Universe 6 has already been established as being full of good people ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg 6's team made friends with Goku and Frost]]) who befriended the protagonists over the course of ''Super''. company in previous arcs.

* The {{Villain Protagonist}}s of ''Film/TragedyGirls'' are two teenage {{Serial Killer}}s who terrorize their small town. Naturally, they have a couple of these to contend with. Specifically, Sheriff Welch, who is a concerned father and an honest lawman, and Big Al, who, while hotheaded and foolhardy, is a fire marshal who's determined to protect his community at all costs.

His quest is to capture the hero, who is a fugitive from justice, whether or not he's innocent of the charge. The character was popular enough to warrent a spin-off sequel, ''Film/USMarshals'', which goes through a similar premise, but is actually starring Gerard.
