Page Type: trope
Because Order Is Not Good, this means sometimes its Chaotic Good vs. Lawful Evil. In these cases, the protagonists are on the Chaotic side of the spectrum. In order to qualify for this trope, chaos must be a major part of the protagonists, and they must oppose an order (Such as an Evil Empire).
- Explored in Nowhere Boys. For the first two seasons, an antagonistic force is the Restoring Demon, obsessed with maintaining order. Since the boys are inadvertently opposing the order this in effect makes them the chaos despite being the heroes.
- Warhammer 40K: Chaos became the lesser of two evils when the Necrons were first introduced, as Chaos at least needs life to survive (the Chaos gods are the accumulated embodiment of sentient emotion), whereas the Necron endgoal was the annihilation of life down to the last basterium throughout the universe. This has changed in recent editions where the Necrons are no longer entirely murderbots.
- Zamorak, the god of chaos in RuneScape, is usually viewed as a god of evil throughout Gielinor. However, his ultimate intent is to make humanity stronger by using chaos as a catalyst for change and growth in a stagnant, orderly society - although it doesn't make him any less power-hungry.
