**The Tenth Doctor made some inexcusable choices, such as deposing Harriet Jones for showing him up, invalidating Rose for not wanting to be lumbered with a clone, ignoring Donna's pleas to keep her memories, and treated Mickey and Martha awfully. The worse part is that he never seems to notice the error of his ways and always has to be portrayed as being in the right. The fact he looks like David Tennant certainly seems to help his fangirls see him as more of a tortured, romantic hero.

** An InUniverse example: In the episode "The Stinsons", it's revealed that Barney apparently does this for every movie he watches. For example, he thinks [[JerkJock Johnny Lawrence]] was the titular [[TheKarateKid Karate Kid]], thought Hans Gruber was the star of ''Film/DieHard'' [[InsaneTrollLogic (because he was "the only character in the movie in a suit"]] and "he died hard") and thought the Terminator was the protagonist of his [[TheTerminator film]], even going so far as to cry when he was crushed in the hydraulic press ("they didn't even try to help him!"). Barney's views on the villain being the main character has even extended to outright horrifying villains with little to no sympathetic or redeeming qualities such as King [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Joffrey]] [[Series/GameOfThrones Baratheon]] and [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Sheev Palpatine]]. He even considers the former the wisest and most enlightened king Westeros ever had!

* Billy Mitchell was introduced to ''{{Eastenders}}'' as an abusive bastard who beat the living hell out of his nephew Jamie. For some unfathomable reason, fans liked him. He was [[VillainDecay slowly turned into a gentle, nice, and weak man]] who was given all the "touching" plot-lines about a nice man with a hard life, reducing the earlier child-abuse plotlines to being occasionally mentioned by his family and himself as a warning not to let his temper get the better of him, especially after he winds up with custody of a child, again. Still, that last bit means that he gets a little of this InUniverse, even if he's mostly reformed out of it in ours.

* Todd Manning from ''OneLifeToLive''. Gang-rape, terrorizing a blind woman and beating his teenage daughter's friends without any provocation aven't stopped him from becoming favorite among some aggressively protective "He's so hot!" fans. It's very much a case of PerverseSexualLust and the show doesn't help as Todd is almost inarguably this show's main character and they tend to load him up with humor and charm.
* Stringer Bell from the TheWire. Despite being Avon Barksdale's right-hand man in crime, he was portrayed as intelligent, insightful, clever, and determined to learn how the legal business world worked, so that he could expand into honest projects. He's even shown taken community college courses. Because of this, fans saw him as a sympathetic character. They conveniently forget how [[spoiler: he was the one who setup and got D'Angelo Barksdale killed off in prison, while at the same time, having an affair with his woman. They forget how he did this behind, Avon's back.]] They forget all the other backstabbing and under handed things he did. Which is why in the end, [[KarmicDeath it caught up with him]].

* Andy in ''{{Weeds}}'' who [[DirtyOldMan goes onto his nephew's computer and talks dirty to his sixteen year old girlfriend while jerking off]].
* Alec in ''DarkAngel'' somewhat. While he's a good guy by the end, the fangirls are far too forgiving of/willing to overlook his beginning on the side of evil or his time as an egocentric lawbreaker in the middle of the season. Likewise, JensenAckles' other character Ben (Alec's twin brother, the SerialKiller) is a lost and vulnerable puppy.

** Agent Grant Ward, who in the episode "Turn Turn Turn" is revealed to be a double agent working for Hydra. The character has drawn sympathy from abuse survivors under the Stand With Ward hashtag whom want him to be redeemed due to a perception that the media has often neglected or vilified abuse survivors. This is due to his sympathetic backstory. While this is true, fans of Ward tend to ignore that Ward has caused as much emotional abuse as he received and thus muddying the abuse victim argument. In that episode, he outright murders Agent Hand in this episode and spends the next five episodes storming S.H.I.E.L.D. compounds and killing his former allies willy-nilly. It gets even worse in season 2 where he has gone on to kill more people, brutally torture a member of Coulsen's team, laid a trap to kill even more SHIELD agents and either taken [[NeverMyFault no responsibility for his past actions]], or has, but makes no effort to change himself. He has even taken over [[ANaziByAnyOtherName HYDRA to avenge the murder of his girlfriend]] whom he accidentally killed. Yet his fans insist that he is not at fault and that SHIELD is no better than HYDRA for trying to stop him.
