When Blake demands to know how Ilia can possibly think that attacking innocent people is the right thing to do, Ilia responds retorts that there's no such thing as follows:innocents or "the right thing to do." She dismisses humans as either being those who hate Faunus or those who [[BystanderSyndrome let the hate happen]], and all that matters is what's best for the Faunus.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has series [[OverarchingVillain recurring villain]] Mannimarco, the "King of Worms" [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]][=/=]{{Necromancer}}. He has long defended Necromancy (as well as the other [[TheDarkArts Dark Arts]] he practices) as [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood an act which isn't inherently evil]]. He also argues that good and evil are "manifestations of the same thing". Given that he is a [[{{Pride}} prideful]] SmugSnake who has committed untold atrocities throughout Tamriel over the course of many centuries, his arguments usually ring hollow.

*** It's then DoubleSubverted when it's revealed that living in their natural state is basically an AndIMustScream situation for the Yeerks. (You try being an intelligent sentient creature trapped in the body of a blind, limbless slug that can do nothing but survive for all it's life.)

*Briefly referenced by the skahs in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. Since they are people of BlueAndOrangeMorality who explicitly do not have the words “good” and “evil” in their vocabulary, they are singularly unimpressed when people tell them they're being good or evil:
-->Q: How do you feel knowing there are good and evil in the world now?
-->A: Those are meaningless outworlder words. Sometimes the outworlders tell us we're being good or evil when we do certain things. Who cares? We don't listen when they say those stupid things.
