* ''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.

* Despite having a dark entity known as Sulphur, ''PhantomBrave'' certainly fit into this. Most characters, at worst, act like {{Jerkass}}es who [[UngratefulBastard cheat off]] [[NiceGirl Marona]] [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer and treat her as trash]]. Some of who have selfish motivations does have a particular reason of being so. For example, Walnut, a KillSteal bounty hunter, have a mindset of caring about money [[spoiler: because he is trying to fund medicine for his [[IllGirl sick little sister]]]]. And some who fell into the path of darkness is mostly due to [[TragicHero tragic circumstances]], such as [[DarkIsNotEvil Sprout]], who lost his family to Sulphur. Regardless, everyone is EasilyForgiven by Marona and those who were treating her like trash [[spoiler: came to realize she's the only hope of defeating Sulphur and realize her [[AllLovingHero kindhearted nature]], [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming started treating her an actual human being, and rally to aid her]]]]. In the end, Marona's "treat everyone with kindness" favors her.

* ''VideoGame/ChroniclesOfTsufanubra'' features some genuinely morally depraved characters, but only in the backstory. Everyone in the present-day conflict is either doing what they think is best in light of what those earlier characters did, or is being manipulated.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', with some exceptions, ultimately comes down on the side that most baddies are {{Anti Villain}}s, and the ''BigBad'' performs a HeelFaceTurn when he realizes he was wrong in his position that HumansAreBastards.
** VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia has three [[BigBad Big Bads]]. Only the third one counts as an AntiVillain, and even then he's [[spoiler: trying to kill off humanity]].

* In [[DungeonSiege Dungeon Siege III]], just about every major villain [[spoiler: up to and including the BigBad]] is a [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremist]] or has a FreudianExcuse.

*** 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 controller resulted in the cataclysmic Elf Wars, and the punishment he got for that drove him more and more unhinged.
