** The Disfavoured general, Graven Ashe, also qualifies. When not close to The Voices of Nerat (who intentionally and repeatedly pushes his BerserkButton to goad him) Ashe is generally polite, honourable and honest (if very brusque and extremely prideful) and willing to TakeTheBullet for you if you get the Voices of Nerat on your bad side in chapter 1. He genuinely comes to appreciate a Disfavoured-allied Fatebinder and openly asks for your perspective on his campaigns ([[ButThouMust even if you're never going to change his mind]]) -- campaigns that usually involve genocide and slavery of the local Tiersmen and Beastmen, who Ashe views as subhuman at best.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' has Ardyn Izunia, a grandiloquent, bohemian Chancellor who manages to be an ObviouslyEvil CardCarryingVillain and ''nothing but friendly''. His most villainous actions come across as him [[VillainsActHeroesReact trying to kick the plot to get it moving]] according to [[YouCantFightFate what already was preordained to happen]], and whether he has any agency or is simply a pinball of fate is [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation debatable]]. Even his murders are of people who would have died soon anyway due to their own actions. His casual villainy takes a form closer to convoluted magic pranks, and seems to be an attempt to annoy Noct rather than inconvenience him. He spends the rest of the time making genuinely funny jokes, rescuing the heroes repeatedly, and at one point escorting them to their destination with bodyguards. ''Episode Prompto'' takes it into even a TricksterMentor territory, implying that his reason for splitting the group up was in part to engineer a personal growth experience for Prompto.

*** Sanguine, the Daedric Prince of of [[FunPersonified Debauchery]] and [[TheHedonist Hedonism]]. Though he is associated with the darker natures of man and tries to tempt mortals with various vices, he tends to be quite pleasant during his dealings with mortals.

*** Peryite, the Daedric Prince of [[{{Plaguemaster}} Pestilence]] and Tasks. Despite being referred to as one of the most "loathsome" Princes, as well as his association with [[MysticalPlague pestilence and plagues]], he has been consistently polite to the player character in all of his appearances. His quest in ''Oblivion'' is easily one of the least morally suspect Daedric quests, as it involves ''saving'' the lives of his followers.

*** Hircine, the Daedric Prince of [[EgomaniacHunter the Hunt]], is known to take mortals involuntarily to his Hunting Grounds, where they are hunted by all manner of dangerous beasts. However, he's always very polite to those who summon him, as well as to his opponents when he judges them [[WorthyOpponent worthy]], and he watches over [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent his followers]] much more than the average Prince. He rewards those who survive his hunts well, and even enjoys it when the [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted tables are turned on the hunter]], because what better expression of his sphere is there than that?

** While not [[BlueAndOrangeMorality inherently "evil"]], a number of the series' [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]] are downright affable and polite despite their episodes of malevolence. To note:
*** Hermaeus Mora, the Daedric Prince of [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Knowledge]], takes an extreme EldritchAbomination appearance and has committed unspeakable acts in his pursuit of knowledge. Despite this, Mora's preferred method of seducing mortal servants is to bribe them with gifts of power and knowledge. He also tends to give them absolute freedom, trusting that the lure of the gifts he offers will keep them in his service. A great example is his behavior toward the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] in ''Skyrim'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC. He offers gifts including the powerful enhancements of his Black Books and he even offers some of the most potent Words of Power there are, such as the final word of Bend Will. He's also unfailingly polite and even offers free unlimited {{Skill Point Reset}}s after completing his quest.
*** Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]], is another. His sphere also includes creativity and music, and he almost always has a smile on his face. He's quite polite to those who serve him well, acting somewhere in between a GreatGazoo and a MadHatter when he's being more benevolent. However, he can snap in an instant to become [[ColonyDrop planet-hurlingly]] AxeCrazy, at which point ''no one is safe'' around him.



*** As well, some of the Daedric Princes (like Sheogorath) can be quite pleasant.

* Hades from ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' definitely qualifies. Sometimes, Pit will be fighting against him and his forces; other times, he'll be sharing humorous banter with Pit, Palutena, and the other gods and goddesses. Even when Pit is fighting against him, he still remains nonchalant. That said, he is still very much evil, and crosses the MoralEventHorizon near the end of the story when it's revealed that [[spoiler:he's deliberately causing humans to war against each other so he can harvest their souls to power up himself and the Underworld Army]].
** More of a subversion, he qualifies in the early chapters, but even before he causes the MoralEventHorizon quickly turns into a character that annoys everyone else at best, and shocks them at how much of a monster he is, even to the point that when making up a story about himself and his motives he can't paint himself in a good light.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', there's a few notable examples, given [[VillainWorld the amount of evil to go around]]:
** The PlayerCharacter, the Fatebinder, is a VillainProtagonist working for an EvilOverlord, but they don't have to be ''rude'' about it.
** Most of the player's TrueCompanions (save a TokenGoodTeammate, [[CharacterDevelopment possibly two]]) are fun, charming likeable sorts, as CRPG party members tend to be, but make no mistake, they're the willing, ruthless agents of the EvilOverlord Kyros.
** Bleden Mark, Kyros' executioner and assassin, loves his job. He loves killing people, and he loves killing people ''slowly'' even more. But if he hasn't been sent to kill you, and you're able to keep up with him in SnarkToSnarkCombat, he's a charming, jovial guy who may agree to lend you a powerful artifact for literally no other reason than that you were bold enough to just ask him politely.
** The Disfavored are described by the villagers of Lethian's Crossing as this if left in charge of it; they may impose harsh taxes and absolute curfews on the ones they conquer, but they are always remarkably polite and civil long as their clearly-stated rules are followed properly.
