* {{Poirot}} is quite proud and often annoying, but is dedicated to solving crime and bringing murderers to justice. The law doesn't really factor in his actions: he can let murderers go free in the case of an AssholeVictim.

* Kurogane of ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle ''. He'd be LawfulGood were it not for his fiercely individualistic streak and [[BloodKnight bucking the curse placed on him to not fight]], but would be ChaoticGood were it not for his devotion to the well-being of his liege Princess Tomoyo and native country.

* Jiro "Roji" Kusano of MuhyoandRoji tends to often object to some of the LawfulGood Muhyo's harsher decisions that stem more from his Lawful side (like sending Nana's father to the Styx), until he realizes the motives behind them, and occasionally acts on his own.
* [[DragonBall Goku]], full stop, at least as an adult, what with being the nicest guy in the universe and all.
** His first son, Gohan, takes after him, becoming the single kindest character in DBZ ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless he gets VERY angry]]).

* [[HajimeNoIppo Ippo]] is so polite, nice, and well-meaning that it almost hurts sometimes, feeling sympathy to almost all of his opponents. That said, his devotion to winning even during the toughest of odds leaves him to do whatever it takes, but he still is extremely polite to his opponents even after they lose.

* Negi Springfield from ''MahouSenseiNegima'', a cute ten-year-old ChickMagnet and descendant of an exceptionally powerful wizard who's devoted to protecting all of his 31 students (who all happen to be cute in their own special way). While he generally tries to act a proper [[strike:English]] Welsh gentleman, he consistently defies orders even if given direct orders to stop one of his students' {{plan}}s, much less uphold the {{Masquerade}} of keeping magic secret, he will instantly and without hesitation break every rule if it so much as gets in the way of his students having fun, nevermind when they are in actual danger. It's especially evident when he chooses to [[spoiler:learn [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique forbidden]] BlackMagic]], if only to protect those around him.

** The same applies to seemingly all of [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar their]] [[Anime/YesPrecure5 successors]]. In fact, it seems to be part of the job description -- [[StudentCouncilPresident K]][[LonelyRichKid a]][[LadyOfWar r]][[TheSmartGuy e]][[TheLancer n]] is the one who could most reasonably be called anything different (being more Lawful-ish than is typical), and she had some difficulty answering the CallToAdventure. Coincidence, or cause and effect?

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' are very much the Passively Good variety. They are generally friendly, rule-abiding kids, but they do (or at least Phineas does) have a rebellious side, as evidenced by Phineas' building a machine that defies the law of gravity because "a universal law without hope of appeal" is "despotism", among other things. Beyond this, they have no inclination for blind obedience to authority, even if the authority in question is someone that they admire and respect - as their relationship with Candace shows. Their second dimensions counterparts had, but this was used as contrast and dropped after their exit from their house.

They nevertheless bother to do things like get building permits and obey zoning laws, albeit often with LoopholeAbuse.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'': Nanoha probably fits best here. She prefers to work within the system when possible, but she will [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight disobey orders that she thinks are morally objectionable]].

* Justin in ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', although meant to be a by-the-book character, is a example of this.

* Major Howard "Bunny" Colvin of ''TheWire''. He generally follows the rules, but as is shown in the "Hamsterdam" arc is willing to break them when he thinks they are counterproductive to the goal of helping the people he serves and making Baltimore a better place.

* Merlin from BBC's ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' could classify as this type of character alignment. He is known to be a genuine, kind, heroic and selfless individual. However, Merlin does become a bit of a darker character later on in the series. He could also be more of the ChaoticGood alignment.

* MacGyver. He works for the government during the first season and for a government contractor for the other six, will work with the authorities and follows the law whenever possible (whether he's on assignment or just helping out people on his own time), would much rather see criminals locked up and tried than take any drastic measures, and unlike the A-Team or some other heroes from the same era, takes no particular pleasure in sticking it to the man. But he's been around long enough to know that the authorities are no more immune to corruption and abuse of power than anyone else, and he'll absolutely break the rules if he doesn't see another way of getting a just result. The most egregious case came in the season 5 finale, when he broke out of jury lockdown to personally investigate a case which had become so politicized, controversial, and mishandled that there was no other way for him to get a clear picture of what was happening.

* Felicity Smoak in Arrow. She breaks government rules, steals FBI software, and hacks into government computer systems to help Oliver Queen in his crusade. She has no problems what so ever with breaking rules or people dying as long as it's for the greater good of Starling City.
