** It comes up again in the Cell Saga, with the Z fighters as the good, androids 16, 17, and 18 as the bad, and Cell himself as the evil.

* The '90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series had one of the most memorable and sympathetic portrayals of Magneto ever to exist, out to defend mutantkind from its human oppressors, who were generally portrayed as pretty heavily bigoted. Of course the show couldn't have him be ''too'' evil with such a sympathetic cause, so he got thrust into EnemyMine situations in all but his ''very first'' appearance against villains who were [[EvilerThanThou more evil than]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards him at his worst]].

* ''Series/TheWire'': Starting roughly in Season 3, the cops of the Major Crimes Unit (no angels, but on their side--most of the time) are the Good, the Barksdale Organization and Proposition Joe's Organization (well-established Baltimore drug dealers, willing to use violence but preferring peaceful settlements as better for business) are the Bad, and the Stanfield Organization (run by the ruthless and cold-blooded sociopath Marlo Stanfield) is the Evil.

EvilVersusOblivion. Often leads to two sides deciding that the third side is the "X" in XMustNotWin.

A subtype of EnemyCivilWar in that the splinter factions tend to distinctly divide between "Actual Bad Guys" and "People the Good Guys Can Work With". One faction may claim that they're EvilerThanThou, the other faction may respond that EvenEvilHasStandards and anyway they are ALighterShadeOfGrey. In extreme cases, villains who [[PragmaticVillainy just want to steal stuff or gain power]] are pitted against worse villains who want to [[EvilVersusOblivion destroy everything]] and [[OmnicidalManic kill everybody]].

** Warlordism and the attrition that comes of a new leader rising to the fore, striking the New Republic, and getting beat down eventually whittled the Empire down small enough that Captain Pellaeon, who'd patiently served under each leader and picked up the pieces after, was forced to join a warlord. Eventually, during the JediAcademyTrilogy, Daala talked the various warlords into meeting together to try and get them to join forces; she and Pellaeon sat out their arguing, then put on gas masks and watched the warlords die. Then Daala [[GeneralFailure lost a good portion]] of this newly-replenished Empire and [[YouAreInCommandNow left it to Pellaeon]]. A few years later, and Supreme Commander Pellaeon [[HandOfThrawn worked to make peace with the New Republic]], while other elements of the [[VestigialEmpire Imperial Remnant]] fought furiously to prevent this. Decades after that, Grand Admiral Pellaeon was one of the heroes' most reliable allies [[spoiler:until he was assassinated by the Sith]].
