** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' has the mysterious computer-hacker (or 'slicer' in ''Star Wars'' lingo), DJ, played by BenicioDelToro. He's this odd, quirky LovableRogue with a weird stutter and speech patterns, a heaping helping of laid-back coolness, a BadassLongcoat and a [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority disdain for authority]] and TheMan and a generally slick and clever guy who's oddly endearing....even if he [[spoiler:Betrayed Finn & Rose to the First Order for a big payoff and to save his own skin, decimating The Resistance in the process]]. Many see him as simply a guy who ''might'' have had some remorse and didn't have much of a choice (Why die for something you have no part in when you could be free, alive and have money?). A number of fans find him rather sexy in his own grungy bad-boy way.

* In the 1970s Swan, the evil record producer from ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise'', gained a surprising amount of [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Canadian fangirls]], so much so that when his actor PaulWilliams played a show in Winnipeg he was chased down the street by a group of teenagers, who he later thanked for "making him feel like a [[Music/TheBeatles Beatle]]."

Added DiffLines:

*** Also; He's the ''Son of Han & Leia''....two of the Galaxy's greatest heroes (next to Luke)!


Added DiffLines:

*** The officer, Lieutenant Dopheld Mitaka (the guy who informs Kylo Ren of Rey's escape and gets force-grabbed by the neck for his trouble) also has a decent-sized fanbase due to looking ''utterly adorable'' and appearing as TheWoobie. He's often depicted as TheIngenue in fan works. All this despite the fact that he's a military man ''bit character'' who graduated at the top of his class and is the Weapons Officer who blasted Poe & Finn out of the sky with the Ventral Cannons.
*** A few have even created fanwork about Petty Officer Thannison, who got only one line and barely TWO SECONDS of screentime (before being blown across the room). He's less a character and more a cameo. However; He's [[Series/GameOfThrones Thomas Brodie Sangster]] and he's cute so that's that.

* Neville Sinclair in ''Film/TheRocketeer''. There are many who thought Jenny Blake should've ended up with him in the end, even though Jenny is obviously turned off by the truth that he's a creep [[spoiler:and a Nazi spy]]. Then again, he's played TimothyDalton.

* Tavington in ''Film/ThePatriot'' has no shortage of swoony fans. Must have something to do with being played by JasonIsaacs.

* Loki from ''Film/{{Thor}}'' is getting quite a lot of leather pants treatment from Fandom. It helps that he was depicted quite sympathetically with a decent FreudianExcuse and was played by the good-looking yet melancholy Creator/TomHiddleston. [[spoiler:And he does wear leather pants.]]

** Odd heroic variation: while most fans love Tony Stark's arrogance and obnoxiousness but are still aware that it's a personality flaw that the ''characters'' are justified in being annoyed at, there is a contingent who will insist that nothing Tony does should ever be regarded as dickish or deserving of disapproval and constantly bash all the other characters for every single perceived slight against Tony. This actually comes across as more insulting to Tony than to any of the other characters, as they seem to assume he's so fragile that being mildly insulted will send him into a spiral of suicidal depression.

** Averted a little in the Avengers film, actually. After it premiered, some fangirls jumped off from the Loki worship because of his... [[MoralEventHorizon actions]]. Namely, the fact that he [[spoiler: kills Agent Coulson, the film-original character who's been present since Iron Man, appeared in all but two of the films previously. and got a bit more fleshing out in this film. And for the fact that he brainwashes multiple SHIELD personnel and Hawkeye, then has them fight their own comrades]]. Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige decided that for the threat against SHIELD to be big enough for them to form the Avengers, it was necessary that Loki TookALevelInBadass. Also, they needed something "to avenge" and had him KickTheDog (and a very well liked one at that). Tom Hiddleston himself still believes Loki can be redeemed, as do many others.

** Loki's leather-pantsing fans have gotten... weird since The Avengers. Many still try to excuse his actions because of his bad childhood, but now, a lot of fans are seriously trying to tell everyone that he was brainwashed and mind-controlled during The Avengers and wasn't responsible for any of his actions. Or that he only did it because he was threatened, as if that excuses murdering thousands of people.

* [[Film/TheDarkKnight The Joker]] and [[Film/BatmanBegins the Scarecrow/Jonathan Crane]] seem to get this a lot in fanfiction for the Nolanverse Batman films. Leave it to crazed fangirls to pick two of the most evil characters in a series that actually has several sympathetic (or in the case of the ordinary mobsters, at least normal) villains to crush on. This is made even more bizarre by their neglect of Ra's al Ghul and Two-Face, the latter of whom is actually a sympathetic villain.

Of course, Two-Face gets half his face burnt off, so it's harder to focus on his good looks.
