* Invoked and justified by King Dheginsea of Goldoa in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn''. Many centuries ago, he formed a covenant with the goddess Ashera to prevent the continent of Tellius from descending into war, lest she pass judgement on humanity. To this end, he maintains a policy of absolute isolationism, refusing to get involved in other countries affairs even when megalomaniacal lunatics attempt to conquer the world. That way, he can claim that Tellius is not at war because Goldoa is neutral.

* This sometimes pops up in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' with non-players who refuse to attack ''anyone'' under any circumstances (at least one person has died because they refused to defend themselves).
* Arguably the staff at [[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] are bordering on this. While their desire to provide a safe haven for the superpowered children of both heroes and villains is understandable, their execution of their policy leaves much to be desired-- turning a blind eye to some of the criminal and even outright vicious behavior of many "ethically alternative" students, hiring staff of criminal and even murderous backgrounds, welcoming an EldritchAbomination prophesied to destroy all humanity as a student.....

* In ''StarWarsLegacy'' the Fel Empire would count if you don't consider them really evil. Though the new Empire has good intentions, they though it was a good idea to side with the ObviouslyEvil Sith who have a long history of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, and were responsible for the death of billions and don't mind killing billions more to achieve their goals, one of them is backstabbing the Empire.

* 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.
