** Surprisingly, one could say the same of 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.

Added DiffLines:
* ''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 say the same of Crowley.

* ''SpongeBob'' has Sandy, Krabs (Pre-movie), Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, and Neptune. * Tom Dubois from ''TheBoondocks'' always follows the law, and has a strong sense of justice that led to him becoming an attorney. Admittedly feels this way partially out of a strong fear of prison rape, but he's nonetheless idealistic and a good (but somewhat clueless) person. His wife Sarah and daughter Jazmine as well.

Disagree here. Norrington's alignment shifts over time, but is clearly Lawful Good in the first film.
* Will Turner in ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' ''tries'' to be this through most of the series, but since piracy is InTheBlood, he pretty much realizes by the end that trying a lawful approach isn't going to do him any good in the long run, since pirates have a natural drive towards chaos.

Particularly in the first film; the second film had him in the middle of a HeroicBSOD, and he never quite recovered [[spoiler: [[RedemptionEqualsDeath until his]] HeroicSacrifice.]].

** Siegfried in ''SoulCalibur 4'' becomes completely Lawful Good, but leans much more towards Lawful than Good. [[spoiler: Soul Calibur itself is either LawfulNeutral or LawfulEvil]].

* In ''LANoire'', Cole Phelps seems to be one of the few detectives who cares about doing the right thing and clearing his cases. This naturally puts him at odds with almost every other DirtyCop in the LAPD.

* Thorndyke from ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. [[spoiler:Except in the Demon Path, where he becomes an AxCrazy ChaoticEvil FallenHero]]. * While most good ''SoulSeries'' characters seem to fall into NeutralGood territory, Sophitia is a definite Lawful. She's on a heaven-mandated mission to destroy Soul Edge. She only breaks this under pressure of a direct threat to her daughter, after she's been deceived into thinking that her life and that of Soul Edge are linked. She still arguably maintains this Lawful stance, only now, her loyalty is to her family, rather than the gods.

* Turk from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' is a bit of a slacker with a frat boy personality in his personal life, but as a surgeon he is an absolute stickler for the rules and puts procedure ahead of compassion, making him a solid example in contrast to the NeutralGood JD and Elliot, and the ChaoticGood Doctor Cox. For instance, he once denied a liver transplant to a man who had been on the transplant list for almost ten years since he drank alcohol at his daughter's wedding. When Dr Cox confronts him for penalizing such a minor infraction, Turk maintains that with transplant organs in short supply, he can't justify giving one to somebody who has demonstrated that they won't follow the rules needed to be approved for one.

* Detective Claudette Wyms from ''TheShield''. Illustrated perfectly when she discovers that a recently-deceased public defender had been abusing prescription drugs for the last several years, and therefore some of her clients may not have received adequate legal counsel. Despite abuse from her coworkers and pressure from her superiors, she went on a self-appointed crusade to investigate the matter. Despite the fact that countless convictions would be overturned as a result of her investigation, she pressed on due to the possibility that innocent people had been sent to prison. In retaliation, the Chief of Police passed her up for a promotion that she had previously been all but guaranteed. * ''TheWestWing'' has a number of examples, with C.J., Sam, Charlie and the President all examples in different ways. * Cedric Daniels from ''TheWire'', who balances between doing "good police work" and what Baltimore PD management demands. An example of Lawful Good in a system which is not Good. Kima Greggs, with her rigid sense of ethics and insistence on [[ByTheBookCop proper policework]], is also Lawful Good. Carcetti probably started out this way, and Carver grows into it as the series progresses. Prezbo is a mild example.

* SheHulk fits into this trope in contrast with [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk her cousin]]'s ChaoticGood or ChaoticNeutral tendencies. {{Justified|Trope}}, though, she ''is'' a lawyer after all.
