* Caractacus P Doom of ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins'' is a villain who definitely SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove. He's a cooler TransatlanticEquivalent of Dr Robotnik, he can wonderfully go from LaughablyEvil to MagnificentBastard at the drop of a hat, has one of the best comedians of WhoseLineIsItAnyway as his voice and of course, is one of the most enjoyable [[LargeHam hams]] in all of animation.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'':
** Scrooge [=McDuck=]. A terrific combination of quick wits, adventurous spirit, and HiddenDepths. In his sunset years by the time of the show, [[CoolOldGuy he nonetheless shows no sign of slowing down]]. Despite his short temper and tendency towards GoldFever, he's an affectionate uncle to his three nephews ([[HonoraryUncle and to Webby]]) and even clearly has a soft spot for his staff/friends that acts as a check on his worse aspects.
** Launchpad [=McQuack=]. While most famous for his CaptainCrash tendencies, the show portrayed him as not only a pilot who seldom lands straight, but also with deeper traits like a surprising insecurity complex surrounding his family and his position as BigBrotherMentor to Doofus and faithful friend to Scrooge and the boys -- not to mention the moments when he brings his A-game and makes it abundantly clear that despite his CloudCuckoolander side, he is legitimately heroic. Half goofy comic relief, half gallant ActionHero, and all good nature, loyalty and heart.

** WHUT. Primal is here, but Prime isn't? Does not compute! My personal favorite version is [[TransformersAnimated Animated's]]. Anyone can fight a Megatron when they're supreme Autobot leader. It takes REAL [[UnusualEuphemism ball bearings]] to fight - and BEAT - Animated's very effective Megs when you're half his size - and a REPAIR BOT. (Granted, he WAS in the Academy, but he'd been told more than once at that point that he was no hero.) And of course, Prowl is a damn cool ninja with the saddest [[spoiler:pre-HeroicSacrifice expression]] in possibly all of {{Transformers}}. Jazz is adorable, especially his temporary terror of Sari, who also happens to be the best token human TeamPet in {{Transformers}} and gets one or two great [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMOAs]] after Transwarped. Bulkhead is a sweetheart GentleGiant and something of a [[spoiler:GeniusBruiser when it comes to space bridges]] who I just want to hug. Blitzwing makes everyone laugh in the space of a ten-second introduction and then doesn't show up again until the third-to-last episode of the season and is STILL loved, and is also one of ThoseTwoBadGuys with Lugnut, who has the epic [[RocketPunch Punch of]] [[FanNickname Kill Everything]]. Adorable MotorMouth Blurr ''runs across the galaxy'' when he has something serious to tell Cybertron and kicks off the journey using Thundercracker's ''face''. [[spoiler:Omega Supreme]] is pure epic, and [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Wreck-Gar]] is full of references and is huggable to boot. "I am a hero" indeed.

** Seconded. Hilarious, kind-hearted, charming, ''[[MrFanservice GORGEOUS]]'', seriously cool (literally!), a certified badass and an amazing big brother figure to boot, there's a reason why he's this tropette's favourite character. He also happens to be everything I look for in a guy. The fact that he's voiced by ChrisPine doesn't hurt, either.

* [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 'toon]] Donatello will always have a special place in my heart. He's easily one of the [[NiceGuy nicest]] [[NeutralGood characters]] on the show, but, as his trip to the BadFuture clearly showed, [[BewareTheNiceOnes he's also willing to]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes kill]]'' for his family, despite his [[TechnicalPacifist distaste for fighting.]] Though he doesn't get as much attention as his brothers [[note]]Or other characters, for that matter-- to the point where, on the pages for TeenGenius and BadassBookworm, he's an ''afterthought''.[[/note]] it manages to be satisfying, in a way-- he fills his duty as TheReliableOne and then lets one of the others take the spotlight from there on out, content to work in the background. He's a character that even the most shy and attention-avoidant of us can relate to... plus, he's [[BadassPacifist awesome]] ''and'' [[{{Adorkable}} adorable]]!

Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded, especially on Flurry Heart. I thought I was going to hate the episode "A Flurry of Emotions" due to the whole babysitter aspect, but unlike most examples of the BadlyBatteredBabySitter trope where the baby makes life an utter hell for the baby sitter, Flurry's just a curious child who loves her auntie Twilight throughout the episode, and Twilight doesn't take very much abuse if any at all; all Flurry does is get into some tiny mischief ''like an actual baby''. Not only that, but she turned out to be one of the most expressive ponies on the show, ''and'' her adorableness feels genuine! Hopefully her haters will start to calm down after that.

*** Wouldn't that mean all of the pets except for [[PutOnABus Peewee]]?

* StrawberryShortcake's lady villain, Sour Grapes, was an EnsembleDarkHorse character since her debut in 1982. Brazen, intelligent, feminine without being too cutesy and yet still maintaining a place in a cutesy show by way of being a DarkChick DeadpanSnarker GenkiGirl HarmlessVillain (who has her successes outside of screen time), and it ''worked''. She was brought back for the franchise's 2003 remake by the year 2006, this time as all of the aforementioned as well as a savvy AntiVillain. She was recreated as more [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds insecure and timid]] than before, while the main cast was more tomboyish and go-get-'em than they had been in the '80s. Again, Sour Grapes was a darkhorse character, [[DracoInLeatherPants wearing leather pants]] (justifiably) more than ever. She was THE RoundedCharacter of the show, needing a place in the world for herself while also [[BigBrotherInstinct needing]] her GenreBlind VisionaryVillain brother's happiness, and her HeelFaceRevolvingDoor adventures made her even more sympathetic as opposed to less. CharacterDevelopment lead her to become an odd type of ParentalSubstitute (in a world where none of the main characters have parents), CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming-- but the heel face revolving door was still not set to end any time soon. Complicated woman. In both incarnations, Grapes was a fantastically rare blend of [[OnlySaneMan common sense]] and the lack thereof, something unusual for any character and all the more unusual for a female. And yes, she resides in a show created for little girls.

* Scott Tracy is [[Tropers/{{Ptitlevos5dvs8}} my]] favorite Tracy brother in the ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' series. It's probably [[WhatBeautifulEyes the eyes]], or that voice, or those dimples, or the fact [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed that he looks like a young]] SeanConnery... [--So handsome...--]
