* ''Film/TheRock'' starts like this. On one side we have marines and FBI chemist who try to save the hostages and prevent a terrorist form killing thousands. Opposing them is NobleDemon WellIntentionedExtremist who wants his men to be honored as they deserve and their families supported and tries to avoid casualties as much as possible. [[spoiler: Later turns into TheGoodTheBadAndTheEvil situation when Hummel's group gets divided and some of them want to launch the missles for real, when Hummel was just bluffing.]]

** Dedede is more of a hero than anything. King Dedede is shown repeatedly to be an antagonist, but he is more of an anti-villian. However, in most of the games he is fought against, Dedede is controlled by a much more evil force (Example: Yin-Yarn, Taranza and three times by Nightmare) or it is a misunderstanding (like in Kirby Squeak Squad or Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland)

* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'' notably had next to no outright evil characters, with even malicious characters like Lightning Dust and The Princess having reasonable and even benevolent (if a bit extreme) intents behind their actions, and tons of {{Mook}}s being shown to be entirely decent folk who are JustFollowingOrders. [[spoiler:The only two debatably evil characters are Merrilay, a psychotic nihilist, and Twilight Sparkle, the BigBad herself, and even ''they'' are examples of a TragicVillain and a FallenHero respectively.]]

* ''Franchise/LupinIII'': While the titular character and his gang are criminals, they wouldn't do anything really heinous, so even at their worst, the crew are {{Anti Villain}}s. Their antagonist, Inspector Zenigata, is a HeroAntagonist, and their relationship can be described as an almost friendly rivalry, rather than confrontation between criminals and law-enforcement. Whenever a serious bad guy comes up, Lupin and Zenigata usually ally against him - though they always resume their antics when the alliance is no longer needed.
** Note that this was absolutely ''NOT'' the case in the original manga. In the first ten volumes of the manga and at points in ''World's Most Wanted,'' Lupin was an unapologetic and reprehensible rapist, murderer, kidnapper, and arsonist. The very first volume includes scenes of Lupin raping a woman and murdering a police officer. The anime was of significantly lighter tone.

** ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'': Ashitaka was very much an AllLovingHero, but both Lady Eboshi and San had valid reasons for their actions. The enemy samurais seemed to be bad, but then, you feel if they had been explained then they too would have fair motivations.

** Which basically proves that this trope is ''not'' synonymous with the idealistic end of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. True, if the story were told from [[spoiler: the Anti-SOS Brigade]]'s point of view, [[SympatheticPOV they would probably seem a lot more sympathetic]], and the SOS Brigade would appear to be deluded fanatics who deliberately put the universe in danger for sentimental reasons. Thus, an unbiased observer is forced to conclude that ''[[GrayAndGrayMorality neither]]'' [[GrayAndGrayMorality side is wholly right or wholly wrong]], though the SOS Brigade is ''definitely'' ALighterShadeofGray.

** An exception must be noted for Literature/RainbowSix since the villains are VillainProtagonists for about a third of the book, utterly egocentric, and don't hesitate to kill billions at the Olympics. Even the least cynical Rainbows find them bafflingly evil.



** Also, there are plenty of characters who, despite a fall to DarkSide, eventually come to realize the error of their ways.
** Averted with the Vagaari, who, as an entire slaver species, are one of the nastier cultures in the Star Wars EU, surpassed only by the Vong and a few others.



* In ''Series/TheWestWing'', most of the antagonistic politicians wanted what was best--they just had different opinions of what was "best" for America. At worst, they tended toward [[StrawmanPolitical stupid corruption, greed, and tendency to stretch the truth]]. There were actual evil people like the WesternTerrorists, but they mostly stayed off-screen and seldom lasted long.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': Most of the five series heavily favored this trope. The show tended not to have very many truly evil people and the ones that seemed to be would get fleshed out or retconned later to be more sympathetic. Typically most people could be reasoned with and almost everybody was just looking out for their own if they weren't motivated by nobler intentions. ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' skews furthest from this trope with the Federation becoming a bit greyer and the Dominion being darker than is typical of the other series.
** The one exception would be the ''Next Generation''-era Ferengi, who were universally motivated by greed, embodying the worst of crony-capitalism on a show that tended to favor capitalist utopias. Ironically, while ''Deep Space Nine'' was overall darker, they pulled the Ferengi into the gray range, even introducing a number of social reforms during their run and having the Alpha Quadrant be saved by a Ferengi.

* In one of the many endings for ''VideoGame/BioShock2'', the child you have been taking care of grows up to realize that there is no "evil", only "pain." This is the [[EarnYourHappyEnding nicest possible ending]], discussing how your PlayerCharacter strove to protect innocent children caught up in the carnage of [[CrapsaccharineWorld Rapture]], but always forgave and spared those who wronged you in the past or got in your way in the present. Following your example, she saves the last of the children and in the end, forgives her mother for all the terrible things she did to her, telling you that not only can she and the little girls you save live happily now, but they opened the door for her mother to do so as well.
** In some ways, this is true of the [[WasOnceAMan Splicers]] as well. They're desperately addicted to ADAM, which is basically [[FantasticDrug Fantastic Steroids]], and are usually desperately seeking it. They also have largely joined the so-called [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill Rapture Family]] just to find a way to better their livelihoods -- at this stage, they've pretty much hit rock-bottom anyway so they've nothing else to lose. [[HeroOfAnotherStory Mark Meltzer]] admits flat out that if their leader hadn't had his daughter kidnapped, [[TragicVillain he'd feel sorry for them]].

* Used tragically in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero''. In the midst of this rebellion, barring the psychopaths (Copy X, Elipzo, Omega, and Weil), no one on either side is truly evil. The Zero series has some of the most sympathetic antagonists (Harpuia being #1) in the whole franchise.

*** Even Weil himself had justifiable intention at the start; given that reploids (especially Mavericks, be they virus-infected or politically-charged) were responsible to many tragedies in history, he was not pleased when the solution to that was to give the reploids anti-virus program (Cyber-Elves) and call it even. His methods to enforce the notion that reploids are by default dangerous if not controlled resulted in the cataclysmic Elf Wars, and the punishment he got for that drove him more and more unhinged.

** In MegaManX4, X and Zero are unquestionably good guys who want to maintain the peace between humans and reploids, but who are both [[ReluctantWarrior willing to fight if necessary]], while General and Colonel are just misguided [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremists]] who want to gain their independence from the human world. Of course, they tend to resort to fighting before trying to reason.



* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series is full of {{Designated Villain}}s who are unilaterally revealed to be GoodAllAlong by the time the game ends - in most cases, your character [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu has a tea party]] with the FinalBoss following their defeat. BadPowersBadPeople is averted. The only things in the series that could be considered evil at all are the Saigyou Ayakashi, more popularly known as the Cherry Tree of Doom, from Perfect Cherry Blossom (it hypnotizes people into languishing to death under its leaves, and then eats their souls), and the final boss of ''Subterranean Animism'', who flat-out threatens to [[ILoveNuclearPower nuke]] all of [[FantasyKitchenSink Gensokyo]] and even then the latter turns out to be under the influence of a temporary but bad case of [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity power induced crazy]] on top of being much, ''much'' more [[TheDitz stupid]] than evil.
** Then again, Reimu the [[GoodIsNotNice Good but Not Nice]], Marisa the {{Kleptomaniac|Hero}} AntiHero, Sakuya the [[MyMasterRightOrWrong loyal servant of whoever defeats her]], Youmu the [[HonorBeforeReason Honorable Before Reasonable]], and ''especially'' Sanae the [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Fighter of Monsters]] [[GreyAndGrayMorality aren't much better]].
** Despite that, the heroes are definitely ALighterShadeOfGray since the world would be destroyed without them in the games where a world crisis is going on such as Embodiment of Scarlet Devil and Perfect Cherry Blossom. However, in some games where the incidents aren't so bad such as Phantasmagoria of Flower View or Undefined Fantastic Object with Shikieiki and Byakuren, every one of them are called out on their actions, including Reimu, so I guess it sort of counts, but... they're definitely the more heroic side still.

** It can be argued that the only actually possible evil character in the game, [[spoiler: is the player themselves. Toying with lives and having the ability to do what they want with the denizens in the game may eventually cause any player to do things that, to them, is only [[BlueAndOrangeMorality dubiously bad]], but is almost maddeningly cruel to the characters in the game.

*** Sort of a combination of the whole buffet line. Definitely a coward, but he did it of his own free will, because he's too petty and selfish to think of anything except how she's getting her comeuppance. Then, rather than face his wrongdoing, he goes into denial; it haunts him for the rest of his life and on his deathbed he claims he was forced to come up with the plan by the same men who asked him if there wasn't an alternative at the time.

Contrast BlackAndGrayMorality, where {{Anti Hero}}es are the best you can expect from the good guys; because TrueArtIsAngsty, though, this trope is a lot less common than that one, at least among works intended for older audiences. If the antagonists only became so due to a negative influence from outside, this may overlap with RousseauWasRight. In that case, the occasional villain may pop up, but they will inevitably be shown to be [[FreudianExcuse a victim of horrible circumstances that shaped them into what they became]] (rather than simply expressing a monstrous nature they always possessed).

* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': The conflict between Dr Cox and Dr Kelso was initially depicted as straight good versus evil, but as Kelso became a more sympathetic character it evolved into a battle between Dr Cox's compassion for the individual patients, and Kelso's dispassionate but pragmatic concern for the [[TheNeedsOfTheMany greater good]], e.g. giving a spot on an experimental treatment to rich man rather than a poor one in order to get funding for prenatal care for low income women.

** Downplayed in ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingom'' in which the villains are way more in the darker side. You have the Lunarians attempting to kill humans so as to make a place for them to live while Junko, the game's FinalBoss is attempting to launch a full scale genocide against the Lunarians in her revenge. While the Lunarians are justifiably running away from death, Junko readily gives up her plan upon meeting the player, though this is due to [[PragmaticVillain realizing she would lose if they were to fight]] and in the Extra Stage, she readily puts an end to her own plans... until she can figure out how to destroy Lunarians without interference from the heroes. She is among the really evil characters in the franchise, though she at least has a sympathetic reason, namely, her son was killed by a Lunarian Goddess.
