* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' has Hugo Stiglitz, the only non-Jewish German in a Nazi-killing unit (Aldo Rayne is of course not Jewish, but he isn't German, either). In Stiglitz's case, it's unclear as to why he kills Nazis, aside from a flashback of him being lynched.

* Kira from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' was treated as one - being a coordinator piloting a Gundam on an EAF vessel. At least, for as long as the series focused on the Archangel's journey to Earth (and then Alaska.)

* Illya Kuryakin in ''Series/TheManFromUncle'', who turned out to be a friendly Russian spy. {{Justified|Trope}} because the agency they worked against [[EnemyMine was hated by both the free world and the communist bloc]]. Quickly promoted to joint protagonist after positive fan reaction, so ceased to be 'token'. He later moved to Scotland, went to medical school, became a medical examiner and works for ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' (actor David McCallum really is Scottish).

* Slimer in ''TheRealGhostBusters'', yes the series shows that not every ghost is evil and some ghosts can be very cooperative with the Ghostbusters, but that doesn't change the fact that Slimer is a ghost helping the GHOSTbusters. He was call a traitor for several spirits, like Samhain. Naturally he has a similar role in the successor series ''ExtremeGhostbusters''.
