* Colonel Herzog from ''Film/DeadSnow''. Yes, there are people out there who are attracted to a rotting, animated corpse...who's also a Nazi. Just look him up on Website/DeviantArt and you'll see his fair share of fan art.

* Col. Landa from ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' already seems to be developing this sort of following. Obviously intended to be a MagnificentBastard, too many are admiring his politeness and cunning, ignoring the fact that he is a sadistic and sociopathic SS officer shown to even possibly have misogynistic tendencies and is extremely self-serving rather than simply doing what he does out of a manner of duty.

** The idea that Landa is a MagnificentBastard actually has shades of this trope; he is more of a SmugSnake because his "plan" has so many flaws in it, and the most obvious one is the one that actually happens [[spoiler: namely, trusting a group of sociopaths who call themselves [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Basterds]]]]. That, and while his plan to [[spoiler: sell out the German leadership]] ''did'' sort-of work, he failed to identify Shoshanna as the Jewish girl whose family he slaughtered, so even if he did [[spoiler: turn the Basterds in]] they all still would have died, maybe himself included, and mostly due to his incompetence, not his scheming.
*** Given the dramatic pause he gave before ordering milk (she had been hiding on a dairy farm) it's likely that he did recognize Shoshanna but was being cruel again by drawing out their encounter and scaring her with hints that he did recognize her.

** Darth Vader does many evil things in the Original Trilogy, but thanks to the Prequel Trilogy he's gained sympathy as a tragic hero. Unfortunately, many fanfic authors seem to forget that he IS evil, especially if it's AU Vader/Padme pairing. They seem to forget he choked his wife in a misguided rage, and the only sorts of evil written in fanfic is usually just him hunting down Jedi. Canonically, he chokes subordinates for the slightest mistakes, tortured his daughter, (granted, he didn't know who she was at the time) and is not above maiming his own son. He's also been shown to torture and slaughter anyone under the Emperor's order in new canon. He ordered the deaths of one hundred repair crews because Rebels disguised themselves to sneak on to his Star Destroyer. Everyone seems to forget he's ''bad''.



** As should have been expected of [[spoiler: Han and Leia's fallen son]], [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/tumblr_inline_o4ysb4jFny1u391o5_500_zpsqwznnw3r.jpg Kylo]] [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/tumblr_o4hppixcqm1rcvctxo2_1280_zpsrp2wopg4.jpg Ren]] garnered a devoted fanbase within ''days'' of the release of ''Film/TheForceAwakens''. It certainly helps that he's a tall, conflicted, handsome young man who [[TroubledButCute rarely conceals his emotions]] and has serious [[FreudianExcuse daddy issues]]. On the flip-side, he's a DarkKnight affiliated with the First Order who [[spoiler: murders his own father]] in a failed attempt to abolish the pull to the light side of the Force within him. Both the film's novelization and commentary in the featurette The Making of The Force Awakens expand on his sympathetic qualities, revealing that Supreme Leader Snoke was watching him from the time he was a young boy.
** Speaking of The Force Awakens, [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/hux_sw_zpsj2p3ro96.jpg General]] [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/tumblr_o5r6z74zqk1r2q8iio1_1280_zpsbmelvjos.jpg Hux]] is another target of this trope. He's destroyed planets and caused billions of deaths, but he's also gained plenty of fan girls that are willing to ignore that because he's a white guy [[GoodlookingPrivates that looks good in uniform.]]

It helped that he's a white guy with [[TroubledButCute deep emotional problems]] and even a FreudianExcuse, which was apparently enough to overlook the fact that he's canonically a DarkKnight Sith fanboy with serious temper issues who [[KickTheDog ordered the slaughter of an entire village]], and [[spoiler:murdered his own father]]. The film's novelisation further encourages this as it places more empathy on his motivations and sympathetic qualities than the film did.

* Tuco in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', a greedy, selfish, petty, vengeful, opportunistic bandit whose charges have been for things such as armed robbery, murder, rape, kidnapping, extortion and selling stolen goods, gets this treatment from audience members, critics and film scholars. It's because for every one of his bad deeds, he wins his audience over again and again by doing something funny or cute, or reminding us of how lost and somewhat vulnerable he is.

* Tajōmaru in ''Film/{{Rashomon}}''; It's true that he's played by the sexy, charismatic Creator/ToshiroMifune. And the establishing shot in his flashback, where he's show sleeping quietly under the shade of a huge tree, is bound to make a few women swoon. However, he's sweaty, gross, an unrepentant sexual predator, a pathological liar and a SmallNameBigEgo who's really not as fearless as he makes himself out to be. Some already acknowledge this but don't really care, because Mifune was a notorious MrFanservice. It doesn't help either that the husband in some of the flashbacks come across as a bit of a jerk to his wife painting Tajōmaru somewhat nobly.

* Tajōmaru in ''Film/{{Rashomon}}''; though it's true that he's less of a straight-out brute in the movie than in the story, still he gets an added increment of sympathy from being played by a sexy charismatic actor.
