* Emmet in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''. The antagonist wants law and order, the other heroes are freedom fighters, but Emmet is just some everyman. He enjoys living in an orderly world, but is ready to trade it in when he realises the sinister machinations behind his neat and tidy existence. His alignment is also helpful in the scene where the Master Builders are trying to build a submarine, but because they come from different sets, are unable to work together. Emmet's by-the-book attitude is what ultimately saves them.

* Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} alternates between this and ChaoticGood. What sets him most into this area is his motivation: he's a good guy because his Uncle Ben would have wanted him to be a good guy. He's not battling injustice or upholding the law; he's doing the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing. He's willing to work with the authorities when they're willing to work with him, but his perpetual status as a HeroWithBadPublicity means that he's on the wrong side of the law as often as the other.

Like ChaoticGood, characters/people of Neutral Good is an alignment which is driven by an internal, rather than external, code of morality, known as their conscience. The difference between Chaotic and Neutral here is that Neutral Good is more pragmatic and usually (although not always) more moderate. Neutral Good'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 Neutral Good 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.

However, before you all run up to this alignment expecting it to hand out unconditional love and [[TheCakeIsALie free cake]], a small word of [[BewareTheNiceOnes caution]]: if this alignment is combined with [[GoodIsNotSoft Good Is Not]] ''[[GoodIsNotSoft Soft]]'', things can get [[VigilanteMan interesting]] and you could end up with a [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Granny Weatherwax]] Type neutral good character. That is to say, someone who will always, always do what ''they believe'' is right, and won’t let either [[LawfulGood laws]] or [[ChaoticGood personal freedoms]] get in their way. If played properly alongside [[GoodIsNotNice Good Is Not]] ''[[GoodIsNotNice Nice]]'', this alignment can be downright scary.

NeutralGood is primarily dangerous because the alignment is primarily concerned with Good ''results'', whereas the means employed to achieve those ends are [[IDidWhatIHadToDo usually considered irrelevant]]. A fanatical NeutralGood can therefore be just as dangerous as ChaoticGood, if their internal heuristics get screwed up.
