The good guys or protagonists are often clean in their language while at least the bad guys are otherwise.

I remember noticing this when I once watched the film The Crow. About all the characters in the film sweared quite a bit, especially Top Dollar's gang. But Eric Draven throughout the whole movie swears only once or so when he's shot by Top Dollar. I was wondering if this was something found in other works and if this is already a trope.
