* A Light-Sided BountyHunter or Smuggler in VideoGame/StarWarstheOldRepublic. Yes, the Hunter captures and/or kills people for a living, the Smuggler sells black market weapons, and both of them are doing "off the books" and highly illegal privateering missions for their respective factions, but a light side run means they have higher ethical standards than most of their employers.

* The Mandalorians in the ''Literature/{{Republic Commando|Series}}'' novels and short stories. Except of course for the [[NoHonorAmongThieves evil ones]]. Likewise, {{BountyHunter}}s have an informal code of conduct and honor among themselves. It helps that many of the bounty hunting traditions in the 'verse originated from the ''Mando'ade'', and that Mandos (including the Fetts) are heavily represented among the best of the profession.

* The pirates from the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' frequently [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] this, among other variations, with the have laws, policies, a code of ethics, a bureaucracy, and even a Pirate Council.Council that presides over all of this. They're ways are just a clear case of BlueAndOrangeMorality, since they see killing and pillaging as not just okay, but a way of life. Of course, said "laws" are really more ''guidelines'' than actual rules as far as some pirates are concerned.

** Similarly, Rupert Thorne is one ''hell'' of a nasty piece of work who is more than willing to kill anyone who crosses him, but he won't go after anyone's family members.

* This trope combined with PragmaticVillany is why just about ''everyone'' respects [[WhatleyUniverse Whatley Academy]]'s status as a TruceZone. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Even supervillains have families]], and ''nobody'' wants to see their kids dragged into their professional conflicts.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/TheAsphaltJungle'', the actual thieves are always honorable with each other even after the "caper" falls apart. Gus is already known as the man who won't squeal, and Dix is as ready to advance money to Doc as Gus was ready to advance it to Dix. The backstabbing comes from their backers.

* Uncle Jack from BreakingBad, who, while being a ruthless hardened criminal and leading a gang of {{Professional Killer}}s, treats his patners-in-crime as a family and absolutely abhors snitches and liars.

* Surprisingly the Penguin believes in a form of this in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Second Chance". Oswald has standards when dealing with fellow crooks, even when he owes them payback, as he tells Batman when the hero suspects him of ordering Two-Face kidnapped.
-->'''Penguin:''' "True, he cheated me out of jewel encrusted statue of a two headed roc... It was worth millions. But my dear Batman, I would never snatch a fellow rogue from his sickbed. It simply isn't done."
-->'''Batman:''' "[[DiscussedTrope Honor among thieves]]?"
-->'''Penguin:''' "''Precisely''. If I wanted to attack Harvey, I'd do it face to face... To ''face'', as it were."
