* 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.

** 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 handsome fellow [[GoodlookingPrivates that looks good in uniform.]]

It helped that he's a [[PrettyBoy very attractive]] fellow 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 and upped his FoeRomanceSubtext with Rey, with whom he has a VillainousCrush.

Added DiffLines:

** TheEmpire in general gets a fair amount of this. It goes beyond RootingForTheEmpire (which is where people root for the bad guys ''while still acknowledging they're the bad guys''), since some political analysts [[http://www.weeklystandard.com/article/2540 have actually interpreted the Empire as the real heroes of the franchise]].

** Creator/TimCurry in general inspires this in fans -- even when he played Darkness (read: Satan) in ''Film/{{Legend 1985}}'', in spite of Hollywood makeup and latex's every attempt to make him look bestial and demonic. The fact is that despite being a CompleteMonster, he ''is'' genuinely in love with Lily, though twisted, and it doesn't help that Creator/TomCruise is blander than bland as Jack.
