* In ''AVeryPotterMusical'' Draco mocks everyone (lamely), but it turns out that he's madly in love with Hermione, and he ends up teaming up with everyone at the end to kick out the Death Eaters and bring down Voldemort. It's even more extreme in the sequel, in which it's revealed that Draco just wants to be loved by his dad and become Harry Potter's best friend.
** Voldemort himself provides an even better example. A lonely {{Woobie}} who just wants companionship and actually does [[spoiler:get redeemed at the end]]. It helps that fans adore his HoYay filled ([[spoiler:and later canon]]) relationship with Quirrel, and his [[WalkingShirtlessScene many]] [[EvilIsSexy fanservice]] [[ShesGotLegs scenes]].
** Although since every character in the musicals are [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation extremely exaggerated versions of themselves, in some cases hardly like the original characters at all]], it's debatable whether or not this is actually an example.

* The [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] sometimes gets this treatment, much to some people's horror.

** Raven Branwen is often treated as being a tragic figure who left her daughter behind to help her. Mind you, the woman has all but said she doesn't acre about her daughter, is a bandit leader the kills entire villages either directly or by having the [[TheHeartless Grimm]] finish them off, is pretty petty and is despised even by her twin brother. It helps that she's the mother of one of the main characters Yang as well as being equally attractive as Yang herself.

* The Notebook and Tony the Talking Clock in ''Creator/ThisIsIt'' have an unusual case of this. In canon, they're essentially {{Misplaced Kindergarten Teacher}}s who browbeat and bully the main characters into accepting their viewpoints, and their "lessons" had a tendency to conclude in bizarre and brutal gorefests (how much of a hand they had in the gorefests is iffy). Neither one really demonstrates any personality traits beyond being [[ItsAllAboutMe self-obsessed]] and [[JerkAss mean.]] In fanon, watch as they [[SelfFanservice transform]] into the protagonists of a TimBurton film and become kooky, quirky {{Comedic Sociopath}}s, playing up their association with creepy things and massively playing down their general rudeness. They're also usually made into love interests, even though they've never had any kind of interaction.

* ''WerbOriginal/{{RWBY}}'' sometimes does this to Roman Torchwick and particularly, Neo. Roman is a thief who is shown to have no qualms in killing people of various ages, working with terrorists and even [[spoiler: crash airships]]. Neo is his ruthless bodyguard that was already shown to have no issues with [[spoiler: trying to kill a main character]], support him in any attack or brutally beating people down. They are though, to be the only villains who genuinely care for each other, with Roman sometimes being interpreted as Neo's ParentalSubstitute. They get a better treatment than the other villains in the series that did got a tragic backstory.

** Hyper Fangirl gets considered by a lot of people as cute and adorable and her stalking victim Critic should just be nice to her. Even Doug himself complained about this.

*** A sort of in-universe example features Snowflame, from the New Guardians #2 and #1 reviews. In the first video, he's loved for being an extremely hammy and hilarious villain. A villain who kills people and deals in cocaine. When Linkara later reviews New Guardians #1, he has an actor portraying him on set as a lovable and overly-energetic CloudCuckoolander.

** To be fair, there are many readers who accept the corruption of the setting and still enjoy it for sake of the monster girls, and lately the ignoring part has become somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by [[WordOfGod the creator]] of the Monstergirl Encyclopedia who encourages readers to ignore parts they may find unpleasant for the sake of enjoying the setting anyway. But then there’s another group in the setting who gets the leather pants treatment; the Order. In canon, they’re a religious organization of zealots who spread lies and propaganda about the monsters, conduct invasion after invasion against states that have formed peaceful coexistence with the monsters, would attack and kill not only monsters, but any humans who would interact or even sympathize with them. The societies they control are rather poor places to live, where [[NotSoDifferent free-thinking, free-will, and creativity are suppressed and everyone is forced into very high-social standards]] and expectations on being “proper humans” which, while the concept has some admirable traits, is ultimately very flawed and disturbing. And then there’s the whole debacle of them blindly following the [[GodIsEvil Chief God's]] orders to, whether they’re aware of it or not, to reinstate the world system back into its ViciousCycle, an equilibrium that no one benefits from. Some readers who support them, however, outright ignore those parts and simply depict the Order as paragons of absolute goodness.
