* In ''WebComic/KillSixBillionDemons'', the powerful angel called Vigilant Gaze Purges the Horizon is introduced as a ponderous observer who makes no judgement and takes no action. Two books later, he's impressed enough with White Chain being the only angel who's actually trying to do ''good'', particularly in contrast with Juggernaught Star who's an OmnicidalManiac KnightTemplar, that he sides with the former.

Two books later, he's impressed enough with White Chain being the only angel who's actually trying to do ''good'', particularly in contrast with Juggernaught Star who's an OmnicidalManiac KnightTemplar, that he sides with the former. His dialogue suggests he was always theoretically good, but taking it into practice is another matter.

** From the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', Talon Karrde, Mara Jade, and the rest of the Smugglers' Alliance in ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy''. Took a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal to convince Karrde and Jade, and they had a hard time convincing the others. When they tried to do so, perhaps having realized his previous mistake with Karrde's organization, Thrawn gave specific orders to leave the other smugglers alone so that they'd continue to have no dog in the fight. A less intelligent informant of Thrawn's managed to ruin this in a play for personal glory, bringing most of the other major groups on board with forming the Smugglers' Alliance.

* As noted in the starting quote, [[Franchise/StarWars Han Solo]] is the most famous example of this trope. While he certainly wasn't the first to pull this move, people of a certain generation will never forget "YAHOOOOO! You're all clear, kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home."

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsKnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': Jolee Bindo is technically of neutral alignment, and doesn't really see the whole Light Side and Dark Side conflicts the same way as the rest of the party, pointing out that this latest conflict isn't much different than any other conflict. Heroes and tyrants rise and fall, historians sort out who goes where and the galaxy keeps running. However, as much of a good show he puts up about being neutral, he often pushes for light-side actions, gets very snarky at a PlayerCharacter picking a petty dark side action, and is the first to speak up against [[spoiler: Bastila and the case she makes for joining her and ruling the Sith]].

He may veer into GoodAllAlong, [[spoiler: because he knew what the PlayerCharacter was the whole time and joined to keep an eye on them]], but he's just not the ''Jedi'' definition of "good."

* Red X from ''TeenTitans''. While on the whole an unrepentant thief and a ChaoticNeutral character who is on his ''own'' side, whenever it really counted, he chose to side with the heroes rather than the villains. Especially notable considering the fact that in both cases he ''did'' have the option to just walk away and choose neither side.

* Guts, from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', was a freelancing career mercenary who only went where the money was and didn't pick sides. When he's first introduced as a teen mercenary, he's fighting for [[TheEmpire the Tudor Empire]] (and they won the battle because of Guts), but then immediately leaves the job after his contract is fulfilled. But after being spotted by Griffith and his mercenary army, of which Guts helped fight against, [[DefeatMeansFriendship Guts was recruited]] to the Band of the Hawk, who were employed by [[TheKingdom the Kingdom of Midland]] to help fight against Tudor. When Guts went from default to the side of Midland, the kingdom got a HUGE advantage during the war.
