* The Brazilian fantasy drama ''Series/DeusSalveORei'' revolves around two kingdoms, Montemor and Artena, being at odds with each other after decades of cooperation. Both are ruled by benevolent and good monarchs at the start of the story, and they want what is best for their own kingdoms and neighbors, but a series of events beyond circumstances puts them in conflict to each other.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is stated to be this by the creators, with the heroes generally being [[DysfunctionJunction flawed]] but very moral overall, and the villains generally being either AntiVillains with clear reasoning for their actions, [[WellIntentionedExtremist extremists]] who are opposed because of their methods, or [[TragicMonster unable to control their actions]]. Well, except Kevin and Marty; they are [[Jerkass jerks]].

* Most ComicBook/{{X-Men}} stories where the antagonists are humans or government forces. Barring genocidal maniacs like [[SinisterMinister Reverend Styker]], in most cases their motive is simply the belief that mutants should be accounted for in some way.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. The characters split fairly cleanly into Idealists (Madoka, Sayaka, Mami) and Pragmatists (Kyubey, Kyouko, Homura). The latter group are the antagonists, but are often ''right'' (and in fact, Homura turned out to be [[DecoyProtagonist the real protagonist of the story]]).

** The spinoffs carry this theme, since the new villains are often {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s and the occasional person out for {{Revenge}}.

* Every character in BrandonSanderson's works is revealed to have "good" (or at least sympathetic) motivations for their actions, though he does include a handful of geniune villains for contrast. Perhaps the most spectacular example is the [[EvilOverlord Lord Ruler]] of ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'', who in life is portrayed as pure evil [[spoiler: but is gradually revealed after death to be a very human figure who basically had unlimited power dropped in his lap and did the best he could with it while it slowly [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity drove him mad]].]] One of the major themes running throughout all of Sanderson's novels is that "evil" is usually a ''lot'' more complicated than people realize.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': On the "white" side, Phineas and Ferb are short on flaws, as are many of their friends. On the "gray" side, While Candace is often the antagonist, she's neither evil nor truly spiteful - only impulsive and a bit high-strung. Buford is a card-carrying bully, but is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who is clearly friends with his "victims". Even the BigBad Doofenshmirtz is quite AffablyEvil, [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes loves his daughter dearly]], and is an absurdly FriendlyEnemy to Perry. His attempts to take over the ENTIRE! TRI-STATE! AREA! come across as more pretending to be evil to get attention than the evil acts of a power-mad lunatic. Suzy Johnson appeared to be a straight {{Jerkass}} in her first appearance, but later episodes revealed that she's a sweet girl whenever Jeremy's not around. The only really unpleasant recurring characters are Doofenshmitz's parents in his tales of his HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood.
