* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' and its sequel, '':Re''. ** Nutcracker was a {{Dominatrix}} that earned her nickname from her signature GroinAttack, and was part of a human trafficking ring. In her final moments, we're shown glimpses of her past -- a filthy little girl looking at the models on display in a store window, and the same little girl repeating a mantra of needing money while surrounded by a group of male figures that leer down at her. Her final words are that she just wanted to be [[IJustWantToBeBeautiful "pretty"]]. ** Hairu Ihei is introduced as a CuteButPsycho Investigator and takes considerable pleasure in killing. She comes across as petty, childish, and utterly vicious without an ounce of morals. Then, in her final moments, she recalls her childhood at a TykeBomb factory and the happiness she got from [[CoolBigBro Arima]] paying attention to her. ** Kanae von Rosewald is a reoccurring villain, slowly being consumed by his jealousy and hatred of Sasaki. But his focal chapters establish him as [[spoiler: an orphaned girl that adopted a male identity to [[HeirClubForMen carry on her family's legacy]] and sacrificed her own happiness in service of Family]]. When [[KissingCousins Tsukiyama]] is thrown from a high-rise building, Kanae leaps after him and makes a DyingDeclarationOfLove before sacrificing himself. -->''"The sorrows of life -- to not be able to [[SweetPollyOliver live like]] yourself. The joys of life -- to be able to die like yourself. Do I deserve to be this happy?"''

* In ''Manhua/RavagesOfTime'' every single dead villain receives at least a chapter as a eulogy, making Yuan Shu and Lu Bu look extremely sympathetic.

* ''Anime/DragonBallKai'': Astoundingly, Creator/RyuseiNakao manages to make ''Frieza's'' suffering, as he laid dismembered and begging for Goku's help, invoke the pity and sorrow that the latter felt from the audience this time around. Living and breathing the character for ''over twenty years'' helped him bring a genuinely pathetic vulnerability and sincere "humanity" to his performance. Kenji Yamamoto's decision to use a cello score during the recut made the scene a borderline TearJerker (when the score was replaced, the recycled music from ''DBZ'' worked well too, but not quite the same way as Yamamoto's).

** You kind of fell sorry for Zarbon in the end, despite being an unrepentant [[TheDragon enforcer for Frieza]]. Unlike his comrades, [[PsychoForHire he's neither cruel]] [[SmugSnake nor egotistical]]-[[PunchClockVillain he's just trying to do his job for Frieza]], [[BadBoss who threatens to kill him if he fails.]] While Vegeta wasn't unjustified in killing him, Zarbon was just doing his job to save his life, and got blasted for it.

** Mohmoo. Poor, poor Mohmoo, the sea cow from the Arlong arc. He's renowned as a vicious monster capable of destroying an entire town, but on-camera, he's basically a punching bag to the Straw Hats…and he's seen almost perpetually crying because of it.

* Youya "Sakurako" Saiki from ''Manga/SakuraGari''. (Under spoiler tags since this involves a MASSIVE ShockingSwerve).

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has all shades of villains; one end has those who could take enough damage to kill someone in the real world ten times over, and still have fans say that they deserve worse. The other end has some more sympathetic villains, such as...

** After a VillainousBreakdown and, consequently, a failed MotiveRant, Light gets one of the most touching sendoffs ever. In the anime, anyway. In the manga, [[VillainsWantMercy he begs for his life]] desperately, grovelling in panic. The manga's epilogue chapter ends with a large procession, holding a candle-lit vigil for their dead "savior". The anime even flashes back briefly to when Light was just an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent to drive the point home.
