Added DiffLines:

* The "core" factions in both of the ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' lines fall roughly into this, although with four categories instead of three - call them Good (...ish), [[KnightTemplar Fanatical]], Bad and Evil for simplicity (whether a given Fanatical faction is better or worse than a Bad faction varies). Typically, the two factions in a given category don't get along either, to ensure grounds for any matchup - Cygnar and the Trollkin (Good) have a lot of bad blood, Khador and the Skorne (Bad) are both expansionistic and imperialistic and so are unlikely to find common ground, the Protectorate of Menoth and the Circle Orboros (Fanatical) worship mutually opposed JerkassGods (and the other major Fanatical faction, the Retribution of Scyrah, want to kill all non-Iosan mages and as such view everyone concerned as a potential targets), and Cryx and the Legion of Everblight (Evil) are mutually opposed because the dragons who lead them [[OurDragonsAreDifferent genuinely cannot coexist]].

* In the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, an EnemyCivilWar ends up dividing the Covenant between the honor-bound Elites and the viscous Brutes. Many Elites, having already respected humanity as a WorthyOpponent, join forces with the humans against both the Covenant and the Flood, and eventually make peace with humanity when the war ends, with several Elites fully becoming the Good in their own right.

** ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction Central Fiction]]'' once again shuffles the alignments up. Most of the cast is established as the Good, so it's better to note the exceptions. [[spoiler: [[Yandere Nu]], [[WildCard Hazama]] and [[BloodKnight Azrael]] are definitely Bad. [[OmnicidalManiac Izanami]] and [[SatanicArchetype Terumi/Susanoo]] are definitely Evil. [[MadScientist Relius]] is Bad, if only because he decided ScrewThisImOutOfHere. [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain Carl]], due to Relius's influence, has the potential to become either Bad or Evil. [[WellIntentionedExtremist Nine]] is Bad for most of the plot, but ultimately performs a HeroicSacrifice in order to aid the Good. [[MaskOfSanity Hibiki]] straddles the line between Good and Bad. And finally, Arakune is ultimately ambiguous.]]

* ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'', sort of. The [=GekiJyuKen=] school is the Good, represented by the heroes and their MartialPacifist teachers. [=RinJyuKen=] school is the Bad--represented by our heroes' main rivals and some [[TheSocialDarwinist faux-Darwinist teachers]]. [=GenJyuKen=] is the Evil--not so much a school as a front for an immortal monster who wants to destroy civilization out of boredom.

** ''Series/KaitouSentaiLupinrangerVSKeisatsuSentaiPatranger'' is set up like this, with the twist that the "Bad" faction, the Lupinrangers, are not actually villains. They're presented as heroes alongside the "Good" team, the Patrangers; but they're AntiHero [[PhantomThief Phantom Thieves]] that clash with the Patrangers on the police force who want to arrest them. Both are against the Evil, the Gangler crime syndicate, for their own reasons -- the Patrangers want to serve justice for their crimes, while the Lupinrangers are after dangerous artifacts that the Gangler hold which could rescue friends they've lost.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'''s {{Civil War}} storyline, the [[TheKingdom Empire]] and the [[LaResistance Stormcloaks]] are the Good and the Bad, which one is which depending on whose side you choose to support. However, the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]]-led [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri]] [[TheEmpire Dominion]] is definitely the Evil, one of the few things both sides agree on. Whichever side wins will inevitably [[GreaterScopeVillain have to deal with the Dominion down the line]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'''s second season broke down into this, with Aang and friends being the good, Zuko being the bad, and Azula the evil. At the end of the second season Zuko would subvert the opportunity for a HeelFaceTurn, but eventually do it in the third.
** This is actually true for most of the show. In the first season, Aang and co. are the good, Zuko is the bad, and Zhao is the evil; in the first part of the third, the good and bad roles are the same, but with [[BigBad Ozai]] joining Azula in the evil. After Zuko's HeelFaceTurn the system breaks down, though at the very end you have the [[FanNickname Gaang]] as the good, Azula as the crazy yet pitiable evil, and Ozai as the stone-cold irredeemable sadistic evil.

* ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' does this with an EnemyMine between Thor and AntiVillain Loki. Loki is in prison [[Film/TheAvengers2012 for trying to subjugate Earth]], but Thor [[RecruitingTheCriminal needs his help]] to stop the Dark Elves, [[EvilVersusOblivion who plan to destroy the universe]]. The fact that Loki wants revenge for [[spoiler:his mother's death]] helps, too.

* During ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[CorruptBureaucrat Yoki]], [[KnightTemplar Scar]], [[SerialKiller Barry the Chopper]], [[AntiVillain Greed]], and Kimblee's chimera are all introduced as antagonists to the Elric brothers [[note]]although only Barry, Yoki, and the chimera worked for the villains, and only technically in Yoki's case[[/note]]. However, all end up joining the heroes at various points to fight against the main villains, Father and the other homunculi.
