** The rule seems to be that demons and undead (which are literally MadeOfEvil), are AlwaysChaoticEvil, but that the other stereotypically evil races (goblins, orks, hobgoblins, lizardmen, etc) can be good or evil, just like humans or dwarves or elves.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' mostly ignores this in the earlier seasons, until it is tackled head-on with the Initiative in season 4. They lump every non-human under 'evil', even going as far as experimenting on an untransformed, conscious werewolf. Riley, a member of the Initiative, makes negative comments about Oz being a werewolf, leading to Buffy angrily calling him a bigot. However, when the Initiative began to do the experiments mentioned above, he snaps out of it. In the episode "Phases" Buffy goes up against a werewolf hunter who sees nothing wrong with the fact that a werewolf is human 28 days of the month, but he is more of an amoral, greedy monster hunter than a bigoted, fanatical monster hunter.

** The first season episode when a gang of demons arrive in LA and start killing "abominations". That is, any demon who is even slightly human or half human, like one of the main characters, Doyle, or any vampire at all. According to the previous ''Buffy'' finale, they weren't purebloods themselves, either. The Nazi analogy isn't all that subtle, is it? This is ''the'' Angel theme. Some monsters aren't so bad!

On this end, we have TheHunter, the man who stalks the night, armed to the teeth, ready to mow down vampires, zombies, werewolves, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs vampiric zombie werewolves]]. And on this end, we have the FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires. The guys and girls who keep a nocturnal schedule, [[VegetarianVampire stop over at the blood bank]] for a quick snack, and do their best to help the community.

** The Technocracy in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' were initially played as TheHunter gone KnightTemplar, but CharacterDevelopment in later editions revealed that they're not so reliably bad.

Out of universe, there were plenty of online forum debates about whether Buffy was right to kill vampires when one (Spike) displayed the capacity for redemption; if one can, they all can, and therefore Buffy is wrong to deny them that opportunity, ran the argument.

* Hoss Delgado from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' is a spectral exterminator, hunting down the supernatural. While sometimes his targets are truly evil, sometimes he targets the (mostly) benign Grim Reaper, or other fairly harmless, kind-hearted supernatural being. He targets anything, really; at one point, he mentions he killed a [[AmoralAttorney bunch of lawyers because he thinks they're not human]]. That said, by the end of the series, [[spoiler:Hoss has hooked up with Eris, Goddess of Chaos.]] ItMakesSenseInContext--or rather, it makes ''exactly'' as much sense as one would expect it to.

** It's also a question of sheer scale; there are far more planets in the Imperium than there are Inquisitors, it's often easier and cheaper to depopulate and resettle an area than to face whatever might be getting established there, and the local authorities usually don't have the clearance to know that the things the Inquisition fights are even possible. The Imperium prides itself on counting the lives of planets, not men, and frankly they can't even keep track of that since they're conquered and lost so frequently.
