  • Magic Knight Rayearth falls into this when you take a look at it. The first season and especially the second season are mainly filled with protagonists and antagonist who are trying to save and protect the one thing that they care about and simply come into conflict because the others goals stand in the way. They range from the 3 heroes fighting to save a dying world to a villain willing to let said world die because to save the world a woman he loves will have to die to 3 different nations going to war for their own worlds' sake.
Are we sure this qualifies? I've seen this looong time ago, but as far as i rememeber there isn't anyone darker than morally grey. Magic Knights are good guys, the antagonists have all good reasons to be fighting( I remember one group fighting For the Lulz, but as far as i remember problem was solved by diplomacy, so even they don't really qualify as really evil). Without anyone close to evil end of the scale, this seems more like a case of White and Grey Morality.

Kinda stupid question, but when a work qualifies to have this trope, all the other morality tropes (Black and White, Grey and Black etc.) should be erased from the work's trope page? or should be condensed into bullets from this one?

I just wanted to say how disappointed I am that this trope already exists, because I wanted to call it 'Fifty Shades Of Grey Morality'.

Not because I think that book is an example, just because puns make me giggle.

But someone went and called it this.

That would be beautifull alternative name.;)

Trope namer?

It's based on the "everything but the kitchen sink" expression (just like Fantasy Kitchen Sink) used to describe an expansive combination (as opposed to limiting itself to just white, black, and/or one or two shades of gray).
