* Suzaku in the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' spinoff ''NightmareOfNunnally'' tries to keep order and support Euphemia in her quest to reform the empire without falling into the LawfulNeutral and LawfulStupid behavior of the original series. He also starts out like this in his own spinoff manga, but shifts to NeutralGood [[spoiler:while breaking Lelouch out of prison in order to save the world from Schneizel]].

** Additionally, playgrounder Zrak wrote a handy guide for Lawful Good, ''[[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?448799-To-March-Into-Hell-for-a-Heavenly-Cause-A-Lawful-Good-Handbook To March Into Hell for a Heavenly Cause: A Lawful Good Handbook]]'', that's designed to help players come up with their own ways of playing LG without falling into LawfulStupid.

* ''Literature/GoodOmens'':
** Aziraphale, at least initially, though he's closer to NeutralGood by the end. While, as the book puts it, he "can't resist the opportunity to do good", he doesn't view himself as having free will and obeys whatever orders Heaven gives him. His having to make the choice ToBeLawfulOrGood when the forces of Heaven try to end the world is a major plot point, and while he does choose to be good in the end, he first has to convince himself that he's actually being both.
** Surprisingly, one could make a case for Crowley. [[DarkIsNotEvil Despite being a demon, he's not really a bad guy]]-it's implied that he sees his [[PunchClockVillain "job"]] as [[BeingEvilSucks a deeply unpleasant]] but NecessaryEvil, and even then he mostly just [[PokeThePoodle pokes poodles]]. [[NotSoDifferent Like Aziraphale, he too views himself as not having free will and obeys Hell's orders unquestioningly]], but when Hell, too, tries to bring about the end times, he's much quicker to [[ToBeLawfulOrGood choose "good"]], and he doesn't deny it.

** [[OneSceneWonder Koki Tanakabara's]] one speech embodies this alignment. He says that the police are right to fight against Kira and uphold Japan's constitutional government, and he finishes by defiantly announcing his name on live TV, knowing that he's just given Kira all that he needs to kill him.

* ''{{Zootopia}}'': Judy Hopps is undoubtedly a good person, and she wants nothing more than to make the world a better place. She also knows the laws of Zootopia like the back of her hand, but in a unusual twist on this trope, she cares little for the letter of the law, actively looking for loopholes and exploits that allow her to further her case and do what she feels is right. For example:
** She sites health codes to the owner of the ice cream parlor and agrees to look the other way if he sells Nick a jumbo pop.
** She tricks Nick into admitting he has [[spoiler: committed felony tax fraud,]] allowing her to [[BoxedCrook conscript him into helping]].
** She tricks Nick into illegally trespassing into the limo parking lot, allowing her to claim she has probable cause to enter.

Alternatively, too much weight on the "Law" side and too little on the "Good" can easily inspire a KnightTemplar, though those tend to be LawfulEvil. This leads to unceasing debates over whether these people are playing the alignment "right", or whether they should belong to one of the other lawful alignments. Seriously, just check out any given ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' forum. We're not kidding about "[[InternetBackdraft unceasing]]".
