A Neutral Good character is not too caught up in OrderVersusChaos; they are concerned with moral goodness, but often not willing to enforce it in others. Something of a 'classic' hero or adventurer alignment as seen in many [=RPG=]s and [=JRPG=]s, as well as many anime series, particularly {{Shonen}} (although most of them are ChaoticGood nowadays) or more idealistic Seinen works.

* Gabriel Belmont from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'', though a nuanced ByronicHero motivated by a [[NotInThisForYourRevolution self-centered]] desire, is still an incredibly pious and kindhearted man, prepared to combat the darkness no matter the odds. Nonetheless, while carrying out the duty as a warrior of the [[ChurchMilitant Brotherhood of Light]], he does not waver when it comes to stepping outside the standard of the Brotherhood, such as upgrading his chain whip with spikes in order to continue on his journey. And in spite of [[HannibalLecture the villains constantly denouncing him as]] NotSoDifferent from themselves, and sometimes even [[EvenEvilHasStandards proposing that he's worse than them]], the only creatures he opposes are inherently evil by nature.

* [[TheMedic Codex]] and [[GenkiGirl Clara]] from ''TheGuild'' both seem to fit into this, or at least balance out Vork's LawfulGood, Zaboo's ChaoticGood, and the NeutralEvil of Tink and Tordek

Added DiffLines:

* Demetrio and the [[LaResistance Ignauts]] are very much Neutral Good, despite being a revolutionary army. It's lampshaded that, although they are clearly an unlawful force, they are not the [[JustLikeRobinHood Robin Hood-esque]] heroic bandits the protagonist assumes, but rather steadily building a militia that they hope to never seriously use (but will, if they have to). Their goal is to use their numbers to peacefully negotiate with the king to step down in order to protect society from being disrupted by violent conflict, since they all have personal experience with being the "little guy."

* The Minutemen faction from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'' definitely fits this trope as they are pretty much the only faction who actively helps the common people in the Commonwealth: namely wastelanders of all walks of life and are not affiliated with a particular faction. They ascribe to rebuilding the Commonwealth in the ways of pre-Great War America instead of the dreary aftermath that befell it. By the time the player character first meets the Minutemen, they are essentially on the brink of extinction due to being pinned down by raiders in a largely destroyed town. If the player character helps the Minutemen get back to prominence, he/she will eventually become the BigGood of the faction.

Like ChaoticGood, NeutralGood is an alignment which is driven by an internal, rather than external code of morality. The difference between Chaotic and Neutral here is that NeutralGood is more pragmatic and usually (although not always) more moderate. NeutralGood's internal definition of Goodness is what directs them, irrespective of the presence or absence of an externally enforced legal code. If abiding by the law is the most expedient means of accomplishing a goal which is internally defined as Good, then that is what NeutralGood will do. If, on the other hand, they live in an environment with laws that they consider unjust, or which impede them in doing what they internally define as Good, then they will quite happily (although usually a bit more hesitantly and carefully than Chaotic) break said laws.

* VideoGame/{{Touhou}} has 2 characters that exemplifies Neutral Goodness: Keine Kamishirasawa and Byakuren Hijiri. The former isn't afraid to fight Reimu to protect her people, and Reimu is the de-facto pillar of order in Gensokyo. The latter is the MessianicArchetype for the {{Youkai}} in Gensokyo, despite being a human. Both of them ([[SealedGoodInACan especially Byakuren]]) pays dearly for their ideals.

** Frodo Baggins also counts. Because what makes him neutral is that he wants to destroy the ring and go back too Hobbiton to live a peaceful life. But what also makes him good is that he wants no one to carry his burden, and doesn't them to be corrupted by the ring.
