** ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', as a film exploring prejudice, shows varying degrees of prejudice among characters: Judy tries to be anti-prejudice [[spoiler: but has some implicit prejudices of her own she needs to overcome]]. Nick lives up to the sly fox stereotype and is cynical about animals' abilities to overcome them [[spoiler: because he tried and failed to in his backstory, but eventually does, thanks to Judy]]. Bogo is unwilling to budge on his preconceived notions [[spoiler: until he sees results, at which point he does so unapologetically]]. Clawhauser is not malicious in any way but still stereotypes Judy out of innocent ignorance and then immediately apologizes for it. Judy's parents are kind, well-meaning people, who are openly prejudiced against predators, especially foxes [[spoiler: but get better thanks to Judy]]. Gideon Gray is shown as a kid attempting to reinforce predator superiority [[spoiler: but has grown out of it as a young adult]]. Lionheart leads a type of affirmative action program to get animals into non-traditional jobs but treats his own small animal assistant mayor like dirt [[spoiler: and was willing to kidnap several animals to protect himself from being a victim of prejudice]]. Bellwether is sweet and friendly, attempting to raise Judy up [[spoiler: while trying behind the scenes to systematically tear all predators down, and willing to turn against Judy when she refuses to do the same]]. And Gazelle has reached a level of enlightenment few can.

* ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' has their characters all over the map. On one side, there's Sanguinus, the MessianicArchetype of the piece, with Vulkan and Loken not too far behind, as both have blind spots in their consciences. Closer to gray, there's most of the "good"-aligned characters and some villains, like NobleDemon Magnus, who all have good intentions but a healthy dose of pragmatism. Some loyalists, such as shockingly brutal, but undyingly loyal Azaellon are in the deeper grays along with most of the traitors, including Horus himself, while series' resident HateSink Erebus occupies the deepest black. And then there's the Emperor, with whose morality your guess is as good as ours, and Chaos Gods, who run on {{blue and orange|Morality}}.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. At the furthest extreme of the Hero end we have Michael Carpenter, [[RedBaron the Fist of God]], who only fights monsters, has a grand total of one recorded instance of swearing in the series proper (which was in a side story), and is all around about as wholesome as a person can be. Slightly away from the good extreme would be the majority of the series other heroes e.g. [[TheHero Harry Dresden]], he's a generally upstanding guy with a MASSIVE case of ChronicHeroSyndrome, but isn't above a bit of pragmatism if it's necessary. More towards the middle of the scale is [[MagicalSociety The White Council]] which is made up of plenty of KnightTemplar {{Jerkass}}es but has methods which are shown to oftentimes be necessary. The main representative of dark gray is John Marcone, who is a ruthless crime boss, but ends up [[EnemyMine joining forces]] with Dresden more often than opposing him and [[BerserkButton WILL NOT]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards tolerate any violence against children]]. As for the monsters of the setting we have any one the supernatural villains, e.g. the skinwalker whose [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm true form]]'s mere sight is enough to send harry into a HeroicBSOD. To Top it of we even have BlueAndOrangeMorality in the form of [[TheFairFolk the fae]].

* Despite being the protagonists of the show (as well as priestesses), the Sybillae of ''{{Simoun}}'' have moralities that are all over the range. On one end, you have the innocent Limone and the truly and actively ''good'' Rodoreamon, Yun, and Morinas. Then there are the more ambiguous Paraietta, Mamiina, and Dominura, and the self-absorbed and venal Floe. The romantic leads Aaeru and Neviril and the nations of Argentum and Plumbum are a little hard to place, while the Defense Minister of Simulacrum is decidedly at the bottom of the proverbial drain.
