* This seems to be happening more and more in the ''Literature/{{Durarara}}'' fandom now, particularly in regards to [[ConsummateLiar Izaya]] [[ManipulativeBastard Orihara]]. Since Izaya's a lying liar who lies, it's hard to take anything he says seriously in the first place. This is not helped by the fact that we never know what he's thinking and his permanent expression is only TechnicallyASmile, which is generally written as a 'smile to hide his emotions'. The fandom is divided in their opinions about him. Is he a hedonistic, sociopathic ManipulativeBastard who only does things ForTheEvulz and doesn't give a damn about anyone - not even his own family or [[MoralityPet Shinra]]? Or is he a sympathetic loner who [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wants to know what true feelings are]], genuinely cares for his family, and his desire to [[spoiler: create Ragnarok]] should be pitied, because he's only like that since he's '[[LonersAreFreaks lonely]]'? And for that matter, what are his ''real'' thoughts about [[spoiler: Shinra]]? Did Izaya really become an informant because of that incident in middle school, or for his own benefits? Is Izaya really trying to avenge [[spoiler: Shinra]], or is he just using it as an excuse so he can have someone (Nakura) to use?

** The exact level of benevolence [[spoiler: Marianne]] actually has is a topic of some debate, even within canonical sources.

* Most readers of ''Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To: The Geniuses' War of Love and Brains'' are convinced that the ditzy secretary, Chika Fujiwara, is secretly a MagnificentBastard who is manipulating Kaguya and Miyuki for her own amusement. Evidence includes repeat circumstances of her causing the status quo to be maintained whenever one of them seems close to confessing, her coming from a family of skilled politicians, and she's the only one with a consistent positive score in the end-of-chapter win/loss results.

** While many conclude that Miho's [[AbusiveParents mother]] Shiho's plans to disown her are simply proof that she judges Miho only by her ability to live up to her family's standards, others believe that if Miho is disowned, Shiho is essentially doing her a favor by freeing her from the family's standards. Shiho's reasons and motivation for [[spoiler:sighing in resignation and clapping for Miho after she defeats maho in the finals]] are also under interpretation.
