* Rand al'Thor of the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'', the hero capable of utilizing [[OrderVersusChaos order or chaos]] to advance the side of right. He is ultimately devoted to "the Light" and spearheads the battle against the forces of the "Dark One." His overarching task through most of the series is to unite the various nations of the world under a single banner -- his. He often acts as (and is seen as) a chaotic force, overthrowing established traditions and rules, being a usurper. However, when he gains control over a nation, be it by force or trickery, he quickly consolidates his power and brings the nation back under a lawful regime. His more lawful side is best demonstrated in ''Lord of Chaos'', when he [[spoiler:stresses to the Aiel not to loot the newly conquered kingdom of Caemlyn, saying he wants to avoid anarchy and keep everything nice and lawful until he can put a ruler of his choice on the throne to govern for him.]]

* Most of the party from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is this alignment with exception to Kanji (goes from ChaoticNeutral to ChaoticGood), Naoto (LawfulNeutral) and Chie (LawfulGood).
** Namatame, though [[spoiler:[[UnwittingPawn he was played]] into being the most foolishly possible version of this trope.]]
* Jak from the ''JakAndDaxter'' games seems to start out like this. Then ''[[DarkerAndEdgier Renegade]]'' [[PhlebotinumRebel happens]], pushing him temporarily to ChaoticNeutral... but thanks to the twin miracles of CharacterDevelopment and ThePowerOfFriendship, he eventually swings back to a more mature version of Neutral Good.

* [[Franchise/RatchetAndClank Ratchet]] is borderline Neutral Good, but he veers more into a ChaoticGood territory - he breaks stuff [[RewardingVandalism for fun and profit]], after all. Clank, on the other hand, is the epitome of Neutral Good.

* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' series:
** Jaheira, at least in the second game. The only reason the game labels her as TrueNeutral is because that's the only alignment 2nd edition Druids were allowed to have.

** Not to mention Imoen, the main character's primary {{sidekick}}. It's hard to fairly describe her personality in a way that doesn't [[LovableRogue make her sound]] ChaoticGood, though.
* ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' has Lucas, Flint, all the citizens of Tazmilly Village before they were corrupted by greed, Salsa and Samba, and all the animals. However, Kumatora is more like a ChaoticGood RebelliousSpirit.
** Paula Polestar in VideoGame/{{Mother 2}}; Ness and Jeff probably qualify as well.

** Melfina is probably also an example of this.

* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Tim Drake]] initially came off as this when he became the third Comicbook/{{Robin}}. Although he had lost his mother to a criminal (who also severely injured his father), revenge and punishment has never been his motivation. He became Robin because Batman ''needed'' a Robin to save him from his own darkness. Jason Todd had been dead for several years now, Dick Grayson was firmly established as ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}, and he was the only one with the skills and motivation to fill the void. Tim is one of the few people who Batman feels will eventually surpass his teachings and actually improve on his crimefighting methods. The other is Dick Grayson himself, who also falls into this alignment.
