Would Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich's Goof-Off count as this? They ARE both party-loving ponies with no bad intentions whatsoever who have competed to do their very best at Rainbow Dash's birthday party.

Moved this here:

  • The conflict between Woody and Buzz in the first Toy Story.

I'm not sure if this example fits. After all, Woody is motivated by pure envy against Buzz in the film.

Most of these examples are pretty dubious. And I'm not certain how this is different from White and Grey Morality.

It's Grey and Gray Morality from an optimist's point of view.

The examples for Good versus Good get a little shady, I have to admit. The main difference between Good versus Good and Rousseau Was Right basically is, that the two groups/people have to fight each other, even though they fight for a likewise good reason.

I still think Good Versus Good is a valid trope in itself. However, I didn't launch it myself because there was many valid complaints about it. Dubious examples indeed, the trope needed further refining on YKTTW before launch.

I'll just add a clarification about the difference between this and Grey and Grey Morality. If someone else bothers to go to Trope Repair Shop, I'll join the debate there. Maybe I'll give it an overhaul myself at some point in the future.

I'll do some research on more/better examples, better quotes and an improved introduction. Give me some days time.

The Legend Of The Galactic Heroes quote is perfect.

I just reworked the trope a but. Rewrote the introduction, removed the other quote, added one example, and removed the mario kart example since it's as far as I understand about a competition rather then a real conflict.

I think the trope is in working condition now, knock on wood. Looking forward to your improvements, and I'll try to add some more of my own over time.

Nice job you did there. Thanks a lot.

Isn't this Let's You and Him Fight?

Also, I don't get the BioShock listing at all.

It differs from Let's You and Him Fight in the way, that the two groups might bey aware of the 'goodness' of each other, but still fight each other. Mostly because they want different things or want to achieve things in another way. Let's say Team A and Team B want to save the world. Team B (thinks it?) has to kill a member of Team A to do so - you probably see what I am driving at.
