* This is the party line of Caesar's Legion in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', which officially forbids alcohol, chems, and general "profligacy." Subverted in the case of the high-ranking Aurelius of Phoenix, whose office contains items like beer, lingerie, and "[[ImAHumanitarian strange meat]]", though they they might be confiscated goods.

** Dexter. Although the main reason he engages in clean living is due to the Code of Harry: It's his way of avoiding drawing attention to himself, his way of hiding in plain sight.

* Gus on ''Series/BreakingBad'' is always well-mannered and professional, has a cordial relationship with local law enforcement, and owns a chain of chicken restaurants and the largest methamphetamine operation in the Southwest. He has no vices and seems to spend all the money earned from his criminal empire on nothing except growth of the business. He also expresses a particular disgust for junkies.

A sister trope or sub-trope of PureIsNotGood, this is when a villain lives a temperate and orderly lifestyle, [[StraightEdge free of drugs, tobacco, alcohol, illicit sex and other such vices]]. Such a villain will probably be LawfulEvil and keep to a schedule, complete with moderate exercise. ''Maybe'' you can trip them up by [[ClockKing exploiting their dependence on a schedule,]] but that's a maybe. You're dealing with someone who truly understands moderation, and happens to be evil.

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse Of Chalion]]'', libertine Dondo dy Jironal sets out to become influential with Teidez, the heir to the throne, via alcohol, carousing, and so on. When Dondo dies, his brother Martou, the BigBad, has some trouble dealing with Teidez, due in part to Martou's StraightEdge tendencies.

* According to their founding document, ''The Way Of The Light'', the Children of the Light in ''TheWheelOfTime'' are supposed to be StraightEdge. Since they've long since become a military order, this is enforced on duty but many Whitecloaks are less devoted on their own time. They've also long since become dangerous [[KnightTemplar Knights Templar]] who nominally serve the Light but usually are pretty despicable people one way or another.

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' villain Ammonia Pyne is a NeatFreak almost to a fault, going so far as to use cleaning themed weapons (which she is still compelled to clean with); she's still pretty evil.

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': In the movies, President Coriolanus Snow is the only character from the Capitol without any bizarre mannerisms or fashion accessories (until Plutarch in Catching Fire). He's said to be "above that."

* DependingOnTheWriter: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. Though not law abiding by any means, he generally just doesn't care about things like drugs or drinking, and occasionally considers sex (or romance in general) a distraction.

* The page quote about CM Punk's crusade forms to the {{power stable}} he formed in dedication to his {{cult}} of straight edge, which included Luke Gallows(a violent brute formerly pacified by medication), Serena Deeb (a former {{hard drinking party girl}}) and Joey Mercury (a former celebrity hanger-on), three wrestlers CM Punk saved from the vices of the modern world. * Triple H is a lesser known example. He's not as overt, and he is not ''SmugStraightEdge'', he's just a self admitted evil man who happens to not do drugs (or at least, not anymore, Trips [[FanNickname used to be known as HGH]]). * Pepper Parks and Cherry Bomb of Wrestling/{{CZW}} are an example by way of technicality, since they actually go much further than straight edge. Had CM Punk stuck around they likely would be trying to remove Pepsi from his life or calling him a fornicator for losing his virginity before marriage. Since Punk did not stick around they settled for Mountain Dew loving KavorkaMan Greg Excellent.

* ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} and Eva Kant have only one vice, and it's debatable it's actually a vice: they have a lot of (offscreen) sex without being married (not that they could marry even if they cared). This gets more notable when you realize that [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]], the HeroAntagonist, has ''two'': his own having sex outside of wedlock with Altea (again, YMMV), and he smokes.

* The soft-spoken Zaheer from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' reveres the culture of the Air Nomads; a people that try to separate themselves from earthly concerns. In fact, the full realization of his powers come from letting go of ''all'' his worldy attachments [[spoiler: the last one of which was his girlfriend, when she is killed nearby.]]
