** ''VideoGame/BaldursGateIIShadowsOfAmn'' has the FeaturelessProtagonist as the Good ([[WordOfGod canonically]]), the [[ThievesGuild Shadow Thieves]] as the Bad, and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Bodhi's vampires]] as the Evil. To emphasize how Evil the latter are, some [[NonPlayerCompanion party members]] will flat out leave your party [[LostForever forever]] if you deal with them.

* Generation Next's original Wrestling/RingOfHonor unit ended up [[HeelFaceTurn turning face]] in the face of the eviler Embassy of Prince Nana and then the invading forces of Wrestling/{{CZW}}. When those were done however, the remaining members split to form three groups, three face one heel. The heel "No Remorse Corps" of Wrestling/RoderickStrong face trio of Wrestling/AustinAries, Erik Stevens and Matt Cross...which went nowhere thanks Aries and Strong being scouted by Wrestling/{{TNA}} to start another version Generation Next there, and Jack Evans starting the Vulture Squad to even the odds against established heel threats [=Hangm3m=] and The Age Of The Fall. Age Of The Fall were themselves undone when their heir apparent Wrestling/TylerBlack proved popular enough to turn face.

** Erza is one of the few people who knows the true story behind [[spoiler: Jellal's]] crimes. Kagura is in the dark, only knowing that [[spoiler: Jellal killed her brother, Simon]]. So when Kagura sees Erza talking to [[spoiler: Jellal]], Minerva uses Kagura's rage (and [[spoiler: holds Millana hostage]]) to goad her into fighting Erza so she doesn't have to face them both herself.
** The three God Slayers. [[BlowYouAway Sherria]] (Good) is a cute, clumsy LittleMissBadass who quickly befriends her Dragon Slayer counterpart. [[ShockAndAwe Orga]] (Bad) is an arrogant {{Jerkass}}, but is a member of a legal guild. [[PlayingWithFire Zancrow]] (Evil) is an AxCrazy sociaopath who [[UnfriendlyFire kills his own men]] and is a member of one of the Darkest Guilds in the series.
** Another example from the Taiyou Village arc: Fairy Tail's is the good, trying to save the frozen village and revive the Eternal Flame; the treasure hunters are the bad, not caring about the village and trying to steal the flame for themselves; and Succubus Eye is the evil, trying to kill Fairy Tail, the treasure hunters, and destroy what's left of the frozen village.
** From the Tartarus arc, Fairy Tail [[spoiler: and Sabertooth]] are the good [[spoiler: Oracion Seis and Crime de Sorcerie are the bad]], and Tartarus themselves are the evil.

** From In the Tartarus Tenrou Island arc, Fairy Tail [[spoiler: is the Good, and Sabertooth]] while [[ArcVillain Grimoire Heart]] or [[GreaterScopeVillain Zeref]] could possibly be considered the Evil, there is [[EvilerThanThou a far greater Evil than them]] in play, that being [[TheDreaded Acnologia]].

are the good [[spoiler: Oracion Seis Good; the invading [[TheEmpire Alvarez Empire]] and Crime de Sorcerie its [[BadassCrew Spriggan 12]] are the bad]], Bad; and Tartarus themselves are [[TheDreaded Acnologia]] is the evil.Evil.

* The later books of the ''Main/HarryPotter'' series sets up this dynamic with the heroic [[LaResistance Order of the Pheonix]], the irredeemably evil [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Death Eaters]], and [[spoiler: the steadily more and more corrupt [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Ministry of Magic]]]].

** Darkseid's role as the Evil of this trope was cemented early on the the series (even as far back as ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''), in that he's the only one to whom Superman will show no mercy in battle, even to the point that he's fully prepared to sacrifice himself if it means that Darkseid goes down with him.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'', Tau and their allies are the Bad; Humans, Orks, and Craftworld Eldar are the Evil; and Chaos, Dark Eldar, Tyranids, and Necrons are the Really Really Evil.
** The recent codex made Necrons more OK. On the other hand Tyranids are a threat for everyone so huge that all the other faction would unite and fight them in a united front if needed. Of course, the alliance won't last long, but still.
** Despite being classified as Evil, Chaos is really interested in humanity continuous survival. After all, nobody fed them so well yet...

* In ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' the Future Foundation can be divided in the Good, which are Makoto, the survivors of class 78th and the ones helping them(Tengan, Great Gozu, Gekkogahara and Mitarai); The Bad, composed by the Radical Faction, Munakata, Sakakura, Kimura, Andou, Izayoi and Yukizome and The Evil, who is the one behind the Final Killing Game.
** As of episode 5, it's ambiguous wether Munakata and Sakakura are still Bad, [[spoiler: Munakata goes into SanitySlippage and begins to try to kill everybody for varying reasons, and Sakakura who was already [[ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption far more violent than needed]] would follow him anyway]], they could be considered Evil as well.
