* Rouge the Bat from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games; morally ambiguous but trustworthy enough to work for the LawfulNeutral G.U.N, seems to care about her allies, and is willing to work in a team, but her goals of gathering jewels are her top priority in the end.
** Big also qualifies, generally wanting to be alone. When he does fight, it's because of Froggy, curiosity, or for survival.
%%** Wave and Storm.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' Rosalina technically qualifies. She fights only to keep her own race of friends from being attacked by Bowser. Even though lately she's making more appearances, in the franchise her role doesn't really seem heroic but instead fending for herself if anything.



* [=Zer0=] and Axton from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''. Axton is a surprisingly ruthless GloryHound who's mostly interested in money, women, [[BiTheWay and occasionally dudes]], while [=Zer0=] just wants a challenge worthy of his skills - while an assassin, he's more concerned with "the true combat" than wealth, which to him is just a tool for buying combat supplies, guns, and ammunition. At the same time, neither is down with LawfulEvil Hyperion's actions...partially because it screws them specifically, but still.

* Conker from ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' is mostly driven by self-interest, but he never really goes out of his way to get rewarded, instead, people just take advantage of his materialism, with Conker not really complaining about doing the hard work they need for them. He's also neither particularly nice nor mean, reacting like any grumpy OnlySaneMan would to all the {{Jerkass}}es and {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s he ends up meeting. The ending also points out that [[spoiler:being king and filthy rich doesn't satisfy Conker as much as his (dead) beloved one would]].

* Joel from ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' fits the bill quite nicely. He is ruthlessly pragmatic, but not overtly cruel enough to qualify for an Evil alignment. At the end of the day, his only priorities are the safety of his loved ones and himself, and he won't hesitate to [[spoiler:sabotage the only hope for a cure for zombieism]] in order to accomplish this.

** Some fanworks portrays Austria post-WW2 as a reluctant example of this trope (given how Austria was essentially forced into it as a UsefulNotes/ColdWar buffer in real life). In the series itself, he seems to be more LawfulNeutral: he objects to UsefulNotes/MariaTheresa's orders and isn't thrilled when Germany comes for him under instructions, but follows them anyway.

* Benny of ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'' personifies the coward type. He sticks like glue to O'Connell in the opening until he can't guarantee his safety anymore (he then shuts him out of his hiding place in order to save his own life). When he returns to Haminaptra, he does so only for profit, caring nothing about the people who have brought him there. When his life depends on being spared by Imhotep, his loyalties shift again and he helps him hunt down the very people who he was just working for - all for the promise of gold. In the end, he tries to cling to O'Connell again when Imhotep is gone and unable to save his life as Haminaprtra crumbles.

* ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'': Blondie is the "Good" in the title, [[BlackAndGrayMorality but only because everyone else is worse]]. He's still a brutal, greedy, treacherous scoundrel, but he gets enough PetTheDog moments to keep from being outright evil, in contrast to Angel Eyes, [[NeutralEvil "The Bad"]], and Tuco, [[ChaoticEvil "The Ugly"]].

* The entity that empowers Mercy Graves in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2565609/165/Odd-Ideas Have Mercy]]'' only has a single goal: protecting Harry Potter. Instructing Mercy to commit murder, theft, or any other crimes are done with the purpose of helping protect Harry; WordOfGod claims that while the entity didn't cause the gang-rape it saved her from, it took advantage of the scenario anyway by giving her the power to save herself in exchange for being Harry's protector.

** Harry and Mercy tend to stop great evils but each case is done to either earn them money, remove a threat to themselves, or distract others from something else they're doing (usually to earn money).
