** 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. Unsurprisingly he has become quite the BaseBreaker.

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.

** 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.]]

** 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]].
