* ''Film/TwentyEightWeeksLater'' has Sergeant Doyle who, unlike the rest of the soldiers who follow the orders to kill ''all'' the survivors to prevent the spread of TheVirus, protects the main characters and goes far enough to [[HeroicSacrifice give his life to save them]]. [[spoiler:However it's a played with example as the other soldiers aren't ''evil'' so much as JustFollowingOrders which turned out to be quite justified when the ending shows Doyle's survivors have allowed the virus to spread to France and, in all likelyhood, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the entire world]], all for the sake of saving two people.]]

* In ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia2008'', the [[DealWithTheDevil Corrupted]] of [[GodOfEvil Ahriman]] has the [[TragicMonster Warrior]]. He was a king who needed power to save his pacifistic people from invaders, and sold his soul to Ahriman for that reason. Compare that to the motivations' of the [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame Hunter]], the [[ForScience Alchemist]] and the [[FemmeFatale Concubine]]. [[spoiler:Even Elika's father sold his soul in exchange for his deceased daughter's resurrection in order to ease ''his own'' anguish.]] When the Warrior fights against Elika and the Prince, he mocks them less than the other Corrupted and [[DontMakeMeDestroyYou tells them to flee while they still can]] more than once. [[TheEmpath Elika]] senses that he loathes what he has become and [[SympathyForTheDevil shows sympathy towards him]] more than any other Corrupted [[spoiler:(except maybe her father)]], urging him to fight against Ahriman's control over him. [[spoiler:When he's finally defeated, he spends his last moments in a more positive light than the rest of the Corrupted: by begging for his people's forgiveness, [[VillainsDyingGrace throwing Elika and the Prince to a safe distance from him]] and seemingly fighting against Ahriman's control before he [[DefeatEqualsExplosion explodes]].]]

* Lucky 13 in Wrestling/{{CZW}}'s Nation Of Intoxication. Devon Moore and Danny Havoc are basically {{Nineties Antihero}}es who are capable of nice things but cause most of their own problems through excessive violence and drunken behavior. Lucky's the nicest baby{{face}} of the three and as such is frequently the RickyMorton.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Jecht]] in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' is good, or at least neutral, despite being a member of the Warriors of Chaos, all composed of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' villains. Every other villain is out to either TakeOverTheWorld, or [[OmnicidalManiac destroy it]] - Jecht is just a rather lousy dad who wants to fetch his kid and go home. The reason he's siding with the villains is that [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Emperor Palamecia]] manipulated him into thinking that their victory would let him rejoin his son, Tidus. It's also revealed in the prequel that he was actually on Cosmos' side in at least the previous cycle. He probably would have remained there for the 13th cycle as well, had it not been for the Emperor's machinations.[[note]]Tidus, on Chaos' side at the time, sacrificed himself to save Yuna frm one of the Emperor's attacks, prompting Jecht to transfer his life energy over to him. The Emperor, noticing Jecht's crystal (which she had provided to all of her warriors), got an idea to use them in the next cycle of conflict. From there, he kidnapped Jecht and had Chaos revive him as one of his own warriors for the following cycle.[[/note]] [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]]]], on the other hand, is a [[ReverseMole good guy posing as a villain]].

If both he and the Token Evil Teammate are in the same party (and you ''know'' authors won't want to miss the chance) there will be at least one huge display of verbal fireworks per episode, lots of almost (and genuine) {{Lets You And Him Fight}}s, and perhaps an eventual VitriolicBestBuds.
