* ''Film/ShatteredGlass'' depicts how Stephen Glass was found out to have fabricated several of his article in The New Republic, with Glass as the main character. Chuck Lane, the editor of the magazine, is the one who unravells the web of lies bit by bit over the course of the movie and he fits this trope to a T. Not only is he the antagonist to Glass, the other journalists at the magazine don't like Lane much either and they refuse to believe that what he's saying about Glass is true.

* Borderline case with ''TheDreamstone''. Slapstick DisproportionateRetribution aside, there isn't very much antagonistic about the Land Of Dreams, [[SugarBowl at all]]. It is perhaps for that reason however, that the heroes are kept somewhat flat compared to the Urpneys and tend to get the shorter straw in SympatheticPOV in most episodes. [[DependingOnTheWriter The odd episode]] attempts to make them the more sympathable side or plays them as {{Deuteragonist}}s however.

* ''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.
