** Asuka is arguably another case of this. In spite of her utterly appalling treatment of her fellow pilots, her blatant LackOfEmpathy, her arrogance and her penchant for throwing tantrums when she doesn't get her way, she's clearly one of the most popular characters. And all anyone who wants to defend her has to say, "But she had a tragic childhood..."

*** Some of this is mostly geared towards James. Many Pokemon fans believe that because James has more PetTheDog moments than Jessie and Meowth, that James isn't evil and that he shouldn't be a part of Team Rocket. Fans overlook the fact that when it comes to people (especially Ash and Co and Pokemon), James can be just as cruel as the rest of the members. Fans just basically forget or ignore James' bad qualities.

** Light Yagami; sociopath, ManipulativeBastard, KnightTemplar and VillainProtagonist. He is self-obsessed to the point of narcissism, and competitive to the point of sadism. He cold-bloodedly murders almost anyone who stands in his way, including the police and eventually his own girlfriend, who he ''forces to burn herself to death''. Over the course of the series arc, he kills hundreds of thousands of people, and since he gleefully bypasses the checks and balances of the judicial system to the point of nearly rendering it obsolete, legitimate doubts can be raised about the guilt of his victims. His stated goal from the beginning is to create a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName worldwide police state]] in which [[AGodAmI everyone will worship him as God]]. While he ''does'' have some complexity, he has hordes of fans both in-universe and out who think that he's a misunderstood visionary, or a good guy underneath it all. It just ain't so.
** Misa Amane has also a following of devoted fanboys who seem to think that [[{{Moe}} adorableness]] and sexiness somehow excuses near-indiscriminate mass-murder. Others see him as a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.

** Beyond Birthday, that wonderfully psychotic serial killer from ''Another Note''. Most fans try and forget his very gruesome murders and unstable mentality and turn him into a fuck-toy for L. Too many fics have been written where Beyond is portrayed as very out of character.

* Often happens with Dio Brando of ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', particularly with the increased popularity from the new TV anime adaptation. This is particularly odd, as Dio is not meant to have ANY redeeming features. He's just pretty, and [[EvilIsHammy hammy.]]

This is particularly odd, as Dio is not meant to have ANY redeeming features. He's just pretty, and [[EvilIsHammy hammy.]]]] It likely stems from his [[FreudianExcuse unfortunate backstory]] (but even Speedwagon [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech points out]] that he had an even worse life and turned out fine) and the fact that he's so over-the-top and charismatic that [[http://smooti.tumblr.com/post/148032476395/realistically-i-am-probably-supposed-to-hate-dio plenty of fans find him oddly charming]].

** Funny Valentine of ''Manga/SteelBallRun'' built his whole philosophy on [[MightMakesRight dominating others to set his terms]], killed or ordered the deaths of dozens of people, cheerfully works with murderers and sociopaths, and tried to rape a fourteen-year-old. Plenty of fans will overlook this because he has a touch of VillainousValor, and his primary motivation is to strengthen the United States, rather than himself. Coincidentally, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff many of these fans are American.]]

** And to make it an Uchiha trifecta, there is also Sasuke and Itachi's mother, Mikoto. Most fans like to ignore or deny that Mikoto was most likely an active participant and had full knowledge of the coup, and instead treat her as a God-send who had obviously been forced into a abusive and loveless marriage. Never mind that she was a jounin and could take care of herself, and never once showed a sign that she didn't love her husband. Apparently in the eyes of the fandom, she's too hot to be a traitor.

** Despite being redeemed villains, Androids 17 and 18 get some of this treatment due to their attractive looks, 17's devil-may-care thrill-seeking attitude making him a cool character to imagine hanging out with (not to mention a likable foil to Goku), and 18 being one of the least annoyingly bitchy and hostile of the regular female characters. Many fans tend to forget that these two twins were once villains on a mission to kill Goku as a means of entertainment. They're no saints, even though they did redeem themselves and became good persons (and 18 in particular went on to marry Krillin). That said, going after Goku was more likely due to Dr. Gero's programming[[note]]if not in their own brains, then definitely their comrade Android 16's, since he was the one truly driven to kill Goku while the twins just needed something to do[[/note]], as they were [[SympatheticMurderer technically kidnapped and forcibly turned into cyborgs]] so [[FreudianExcuse it's not entirely their fault]]. But if Bulma gets to be on this list for being more of a jerkass than people like to admit, then so do these guys.

** Sasuke. Some of his fans think he's actually justified in [[spoiler:planning to destroy Konoha and everyone in it (including his former friends) even though the most responsible person from Konoha for ruining his life is already dead.]]. There's all the Sasuke x Sakura shipping fics in which Sasuke returns to the village and mostly seamlessly integrates back in. [[spoiler:Most fans weren't happy when Sasuke declared he'd be Hokage[[note]]Ironically, on the day Naruto was to be inducted as Seventh Hokage, his daughter knocks him senseless while fighting with her brother, meaning Sasuke has to henge and take his place.[[/note]] and ignore what his former classmates said... while his fans put him in the biggest leather pants ever and say he not only deserves it, but is [[WhatAnIdiot best choice]] while blaming other people for his behavior.]] It's kind of funny how as the series keeps going, and Sasuke dives deeper and deeper into his Heel status, the attempts to explain just ''how'' he ends up a good guy again so that sexy times can start now get shorter and more frequently waved away as AU. Here's some InUniverse implementation as of Chapter 619, because WordOfGod wants us to cut down on accountability for the Uchiha Clan: [[spoiler:they are cursed to "love too much", and their brain functions when they lose a loved one ''literally'' amplify the anguish - increasing their mental instability whilst also empowering their Sharingan. So they really ''do'' feel more agony than normal people, and therefore we ''must'' feel sorry for Sasuke/Obito/Madara for being douchebags because their crazy eyes ''make'' them do it, accountability be damned!]] Right [[WordOfGod from the horse's mouth]], that stuff is. [[spoiler:Ultimately defied in the [[SpinOffspring follow-up]] [[Manga/{{Boruto}} series]]; Sasuke considers his actions as a teenager to be ''[[MoralEventHorizon completely unforgivable]]'', and is humble beyond description that Naruto - and through him ultimately the village - forgave him '''anyway.''' He has thus sentenced himself to a lifetime of service to the village, the girl he had scorned, and the friend he had betrayed, and his newfound humility, loyalty and patience would be utterly unrecognizable if so much of his character wasn't being a brooding dork in the first place]].

** Cell also counts, as shown on the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation entry. There are also those who downplay his actions, saying that Cell just wanted to get stronger, test himself, and have a fun tournament, which makes him no different than Goku. This is ignoring that Cell literally ate cities, tortured the Z-Fighters, crushed Android 16's head for no real reason other than to be a dick, and mocked Goku's HeroicSacrifice. Cell also freely admitted to wanting to terrorized the Earth once defeats everyone in the Cell Games, all so he can enjoy the looks of horror in people's faces.
