* Borderline in ''Film/GoodFellas". For the most part it's not, but they do appear to bond at times. Like when Tommy asks Henry advice on a bigoted girl she's dating who doesn't like Italians.

* Played straight in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. When White accuses Mr Blonde of trying to rob the diamonds, Nice Guy reprimands him for it, reminding White of the loyalty that Blonde had shown them.

Which makes sense because in the end, it's revealed that Mr Orange was indeed the one who was an undercover cop.

** Nice Guy Eddie: "He could've fuckin' walked. All he had to do was say my dad's name, but he didn't; he kept his fucking mouth shut. And did his fuckin' time, and he did it like a man. He did four years for us."

* The Rogues Guild from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' is a group of vigilantes who work to dispense justice that Limsa Lominsa's Yellowjackets can't. They uphold an old code from the days when Limsa was a pirates' hotspot that calls for them to stand up to organized criminal groups that would exploit the innocent.

* Michael, Fi and Sam of ''Series/BurnNotice''.

to:

* *''Series/BurnNotice''
** Michael Weston used to be a spy, or as some call it a thief on the government's salary, and still regularly pushes or even breaks the law to help his friends and the helpless people who come to him. He acts this way from a combination of loyalty to his higher ideals and his own abusive childhood which makes him staying back and letting the little person be hurt very hard to do. He spends much of the series trying to get his job back in the US Government because one, he is innocent of the crimes they burned him for, and two he wants to protect his country and family.
** Fiona Glenanne is a former [=IRA=] bombing expert. Much like
Michael, Fi she has lines she wouldn't cross even in her worst days after a tragedy drove her to terrorism. This includes not harming kids. While she wasn't on a friendly relationship with both Michael (her ex-boyfriend) and Sam Axe (he ruined one of ''Series/BurnNotice''.her business dealings when he was with the government) over the series, she grows to be a very loyal and fierce friends to both. To save Michael from his own desires to do anything to save her from a tragic mistake she makes thanks to a manipulative villain, [[spoiler:she willingly turns herself into the FBI for blowing up part of a British Consulate]].
** Sam Ax is a former Navy Seal. He is a fierce and loyal man. Threaten his friends and he will get angry very quickly. He will go to many lengths to help his friends or the family of friends, including some not-so-legal phone work to help locate a missing cop buddy, to when he saves [[BadassInDistress a kidnapped Fionna]], who was close to escaping anyway, and slams one kidnapper's head into a wall making a head-shape-whole in the drywall. Fionna is very impressed by this.
** In season 4 episode, "Made Man" the villain of the week is a Miami mobster boss Tony Caro. As part of the operation to take him down, the team first makes him think his bosses in New York had gotten to his crew and tried to kill him. When they then try to get him personally involved in a $5 million heist in merchandise, he isn't trusting until Sam is forced into telling him real and very personal story when [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind he stays with a friend in hostile lands when the guy was injured]]. Tony is moved and agrees to work with the crew. When they set him up and get him driving off with the merchandise and Sam is "captured" by a security guard, he turns the truck around to come back to rescue Sam because he is now fiercely loyal to Sam after hearing that story.

** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', all the main joinable factions have an associated book which outlines their basic ideals and makes the case for why you should join them. The ThievesGuild's book is actually called ''Honor Among Thieves'', and indeed part of the author's argumentation is that the Thieves' Guild is this trope made official (the major ''other'' part is that they aren't the murderous, drug-dealing xenophobic slaver scum the [[GenericEthnicCrimeGang Camonna Tong]] are).
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': The Thieves' Guild in Skyrim is on hard times, but a few still hold out. When the player gets inducted into the Guild, they have the option of saying "Why do we need rules? We're thieves. We do what we want", which earns them a reprimand from the guildmaster Mercer Frey. [[spoiler:It turns out to be an act: Mercer abandoned anything resembling principles years ago, murdering the previous guildmaster, framing another thief, and stealing an artifact belonging to the thieves' patron Daedra, Nocturnal -- which is believed to be the source of their bad luck. During the final confrontation, Mercer openly mocks this concept, stating that as thieves all that matters is money. You're given the option to agree or disagree with him.]]

* 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.
