* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, the defining characteristic of Vault-Tec was their disturbing social experiments on the people in their Vaults, shelters to hold people if the Apocalypse ever happened (which it did), in order to gauge their reactions. These range from vaults of one men and all women, to elaborate nightmares like filling the vault full of white noise, or telling the dwellers they must sacrifice one person a year or all perish. Then, there was Ted Huntly. Vault 88, which was designed to prototype materials, had experiments developed by him that actually made life better for people, such as automated eye exams, and extremely tasty soda. Naturally, everyone at Vault-Tec hated him.

** ...And then
there was [[OnlySaneMan Dr. Ted Huntly. Reilly]], introduced posthumously in [[VideoGame/Fallout4 Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop]]. Vault 88, which was designed to prototype materials, materials for other Vaults, had experiments developed by him he and other researchers, most of which would essentially [[NotTheIntendedUse weaponize ordinary civilian items]]. For example, one experiment in the Vault involves a soda fountain and slipping into it either mind control chemicals [[GettingSmilesPaintedOnYourSoul to bliss people out of their skulls]] or diet suppressants that actually [[GoneHorriblyRight can cause people to starve to death]]. However, Ted missed the memo that he was working for [[EvilInc Vault-Tec]], apparently, as all of his developments just made life better for people, such as Vault Dwellers, creating stuff like automated eye exams, exams and extremely tasty soda. soda that was better tasting than Nuka-Cola ([[CutLexLuthorACheck both of which could've made Vault-Tec billions]]). Naturally, everyone else at Vault-Tec hated him.''hated'' him, with several of his colleagues literally wanting to have him [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned To Antarctica]].

** Speaking of Umbrella's forces, the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service is comprised of convicted war criminals and mercenaries and home to some ''purely'' evil and psychotic people like Nikolai, but seems to contain a few of these. Carlos Oliviera is the ''one'' known member of the unit who, despite having a DarkAndTroubledPast, is a genuinely heroic man who actually wants to rescue the surviving citizens of Raccoon City and is visibly distraught by the revelation that Umbrella actually ''caused'' the viral outbreak. Other characters like Mikhael and Murphy might count as well, but aren't given enough development to know for sure.

* Angel in ''WebAnimation/NoEvil'' seems to be allied with [[BigBad Charles]] and [[TheDragon Amaroq]], but attempts to "adopt" Kitty as Charles's mother to stop him doing bad things (admittedly by kidnapping her and taking her to Mictlan Woods, but her intentions were good, at least).

** The Smalljon is definitely not good or heroic, but he is the only Northern lord with totally understandable concerns for turning against the Starks aside from greed or vengeance.

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'': Exaggerated completely on this show, where Jimmy is WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes himself, as his two best friends are Heloise, a sadistic MadScientist (or a serial killer in the Token Good for the whole city.pilot) who enjoys torturing people and destroying things, and Beezy, a lazy hedonist who is primarily motivated by his own selfish desired.

* Ainz Ooal Gown, the Satoru Suzuki/Lord Momonga's old guild in ''LightNovel/Overlord2012'' is shown to be made almost entirely of evil monsters with the exception of "Touch Me" who decided to be a KnightInShinningArmor who believed in honor and justice.[[note]] Technically, they were all just friends role playing in an MMO, until our protagonist got sucked into a real magical world.[[/note]]
** Among Momonga's subordinates, we have his BattleButtler and leader of his personnel team of {{ninja maid}}s Sebas Tian, who unlike the other more evil guardian's at Nazarick, has been shown willing to give a helping hand to those weaker than himself and is one of the few in Nazarick that is accepting of humans.

** Also of note; Cocytus is by far the least evil of Nazarick's floor guardians and often praises the courage and skill of his opponents, even if they're significantly weaker than he is.
