* Lee Jin Pyo in ''TheCityHunter'': His entire black ops team was murdered by their own ''{{government|Conspiracy}},'' [[spoiler:who first denied their existence and then branded them as traitors. As he's a "[[FakingTheDead dead man]]," he can't work/live in his native Korea. He just wants to expose their corruption and [[GreyAndGrayMorality get revenge on the ones]] who ordered his team's execution]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the Vigil of Stendarr is a ChurchMilitant order edicated to hunting down and destroying supernatural threats to mortal life, including Daedra, Daedra worshipers, vampires, lycanthropes, and others. While [[GoodIsNotNice generally benevolent and good]], including [[TheMedic healing travelers for free]], they display some KnightTemplar tendencies, such as not bothering to discriminate between actual malevolent threats and those who mean no harm (like the worshipers of the more benevolent [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] and {{Friendly Neighborhood Vampire}}s). This can lead to trouble with the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] if say, the Dragonborn is carrying a Daedric artifact. The Vigilants will be ''very'' insistent that you hand it over, and will start reaching for their [[CarryABigStick maces]] if you refuse. This can extend to the artifacts of the more benevolent Daedra, like Meridia or Azura.

* ''Creator/DanielKeysMoran'''s Tales of the Continuing Time has Mohammed Vance, a cyborg who works for (and eventually leads) the PeaceForcers, a military and police force by the uber-powerful successor to the United Nations. He totally opposes the main character Trent, is totally ruthless, was responsible for the decision the nuke several hundred people including Trent's family, as well as repeatedly trying to capture and/or kill Trent himself. But he is honorable and truly believes that what he does is making the world a better place. There is a great scene in "The Last Dancer" where he is addressing his military forces prior to a major invasion and telling them why what they are doing is right and why they must defeat their opponents, and it is interspersed with the leader of their opponents addressing her forces and telling them why what they are doing is right and why they must defeat the PeaceForcers. *AND THEY ARE BOTH CORRECT* in their arguments! Well done, Mr. Moran...

* Abbot Cellach from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells'' is only concerned with protecting his abbey and his nephew Brendan from the Vikings, but his stern and overprotective attitude puts him into an antagonistic FantasyForbiddingFather role.

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, the Reverend Darren England, protector of the planet from demonic threats for decades. He's willing to deal with The Syndicate if it means the death of [[EldritchAbomination The Kellith]], the descendant of a Great Old One, before The Kellith can destroy all life on earth. The only problem is that The Kellith is Carmilla, who is an AntiHero protagonist and is trying to go straight.
%%* Farseer in ''Literature/LandGames''.
* Given that the main character [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood accidentally becomes a villain]], it's unsurprising that ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' contains a lot of these. How [[GoodIsNotNice her]][[VillainWithGoodPublicity oic]] they are varies greatly.

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' features the police force opposing our AntiHeroTeam of thieves. [[spoiler:This is actually subverted on all accounts.

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' features the police force Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, along with celebrity teenage detective Goro Akechi and prosecutor Sae Niijima, opposing our AntiHeroTeam of thieves. Phantom Thieves. While Akechi can act irritatingly smug and Sae is shown to sometimes be rather aggressive, their motives are still sympathetic, and, even if it's for the greater good, the Phantom Thieves ''are'' still committing crimes -- it's the police force's job to stop them. [[spoiler:This is actually ends up subverted on all with the first two accounts. The government and police are corrupt to the extreme, the detective and Akechi is a sociopathic killer, and fraud murderer in the prosecutor pocket of said corrupt government. Sae, meanwhile, does a HeelFaceTurn after the main characters defeat character appeals to her in the manifestation of her inferiority complex]].interrogation that serves as the story's framing device]].
