-->'''Zapp Brannigan:''' I hate these filthy Neutrals, Kiff! With enemies, you know where you stand, but with neutrals? Who knows. It ''sickens'' me. [...] What makes a man turn Neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of ''neutrality?!''

* The Sharlyans in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' are portrayed as being completely neutral when it comes to political affairs of others, even if their own safety is at risk. When TheEmpire was bringing down Dalamud, Louisoix, an elderly Sharlyan, went on a mission to warn Eorzea on what would happen if the Garlean Empire succeeded. He was ousted from his homeland as a pariah simply because he shared his knowledge with Eorzea and the Sharlyan people prefer to keep their knowledge within their own circle. The Sharlyans even tried to negotiate some form of a peace treaty with the empire, but when that fell through, the entire colony went on a mass exodus and left behind everything instead of defending themselves. This is also touched upon in the Astrologian job quests where an important character from Sharlya is hunted down by her own people just because she wanted to spread the knowledge of Astrologians to the realm.

** Sophia of the Warring Triad is depicted as a borderline malevolent take on this trope, dedicated to upholding balance regardless of how many lives are ruined or destroyed. According to her theme song, she incited a girl to "restore the balance" in her life by [[{{Matricide}} killing her]] [[AbusiveParents abusive]] [[{{Matricide}} mother]]...and then "finish the job" by [[DrivenToSuicide killing herself]].

* ''TabletopGame/MummyTheResurrection'': The Amenti are servants of the universal balance, which is explicitly said to mean that if the forces of good ever gains the upper hand, they are required to switch sides. Since they live in TheWorldOfDarkness, though, this is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}} 2: Durandal'', the Jjaro AI Thoth aids Durandal's (and by extension, your) cause with the reasoning that you're at a serious disadvantage against the Pfhor hunting you down. Then when things start going your way he tries to thwart you and aid the slaver race but [[MagnificentBastard Durandal has tipped the scales too far in his favor]] for Thoth to make a difference at that point.

Also, the slavers are pissed and refuse to accept Thoth's aid, not knowing this was it's shtick.

* Defied in a "Treehouse of Horror" vignette on ''TheSimpsons'': Homer dies and St. Peter threatens to send him to Hell unless he goes back to Earth for one day and does a truly good deed. When he's back on Earth and tells Marge about this, she suggests he help her with the household chores - and Homer clarifies that he just wants to ''get into'' Heaven, not get nominated to run the whole place. Homer eventually does do something moral by saving a baby in a runaway baby carriage. But when the day ends St. Peter just sends him to Hell anyway; he hadn't seen Homer save the baby because he hadn't been paying attention.
-->'''Homer:''' I thought you were supposed to be watching the whole time!
-->'''St. Peter:''' I'm sorry, you must be thinking of Santa Claus.

** [[DependingOnTheWriter According to some sources]], the concept of a "constantly flip-flopping character" trying to maintain TrueNeutral is either a case of an [[RulesLawyer overly strict DM]] or an [[ViewersAreMorons unimaginative player]]: a neutral druid would absolutely take up a series of quests to oust various evil/chaotic influences, but only when those evil influences would tip the balance far too far in away from good/lawful. The balance they (are supposed to) seek is the balance of the WORLD, not themselves.
