* Xanthe Atros, owner of the titular ''{{Teahouse}}''. Being a yaoi comic, he's characterized as a massive BastardBoyfriend who treats everyone around him like dirt. For example, the Teahouse is essentially a high-end brothel where the courtesans are essentially slaves, including his childhood friend Linneus. He knows that both Lilith and Linneus crush on him and he freely sleeps with/makes out with them but never actually treats their feelings with respect. On top of that, he's actually ''married'' with a child on the way, yet neglects his wife and doesn't give her a second thought when cheating on her repeatedly. But since he's sexy, had an abusive dad, and has a few tiny PetTheDog moments, many fans will constantly defend his actions.

* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'' has a truly bizarre example in Ross [=MacIntyre=], Becky's dad. He's a fundamentalist whose defining character trait is a desire to "fix" his gay daughter "through any means necessary", and yet he continually has people trying to portray him as a "concerned parent" and spin Becky as an unreliable narrator. These comments generally get screened out and held up on the baffled author's blog.
** [[MoralEventHorizon This sentiment continued when Ross]] ''[[MoralEventHorizon kidnapped his daughter with a gun]]'' '''''[[MoralEventHorizon on school grounds]]'''''.

* In ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan: Oracle For Hire'', minor character Lord Siegfried, a.k.a. "Siggy", is noted for his uncontrollable temper, his willingness to substitute convenient scapegoats for his wrath, and his [[FantasticRacism extreme racism against orcs]]. Despite this, he is very dedicated to his duty as a knight, and as long as he can keep calm, he's polite, well-spoken, and sensible. He is also, conspicuously, one of the most "manly" characters in the series. Probably for those reasons, Siggy's fangirls are easily as devout as those of more traditional BadAss types such as Celesto and Jacob, even going so far as to set up websites devoted to Siggy fandom, and posting lengthy defenses of his quality of character against those who malign him for the traits the author clearly uses him (and less frequently his father, Lord Damaske) to represent.

* A number of fans of Mike, from ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' and ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', complained when he made a joke about rape, in private, to another man purely to make him uncomfortable, that this was out of character for someone who'd once ''kicked a little girl in the head'' to prove a point. About the only redeeming things he's ever seen doing is turning his cruelty on people who deserve it, [[spoiler: being kind when drunk, and and starting a family with Amber.]]

* The fanart of Webcomic/AvasDemon has a tendency to show the main cast as a gang of happy friends. In the comic, the characters tolerate each other at best and have murderous contempt for each other at worst.

* The fanart of Webcomic/AvasDemon has a tendency to show the main cast as a gang of happy friends. In the comic, the characters tolerate each other at best and have murderous contempt for each other at worst. \n Most prominently, Maggie gets this treatment, as people completely gloss over the fact that she was perfectly okay with causing a crash that would kill Odin and Ava([[spoiler: who indeed died, but was brought back]]), is willing to use magic to force Gil to be in love with her and is implied to have used this method before, the person she treats the best is Tuls, and even then, it's ambiguous if they even like each other, or even if she intends to [[spoiler: fulfill her part of the pact]].

** Eridan Ampora. He's a tool that makes bad decisions and ends up [[spoiler:murdering or attempting to murder his friends]], but searches for his name on sites like Website/DeviantArt will turn up [[SelfFanservice pictures of him that make him look like Casanova]]. This is justified as, before the previous spoilered scene, he was a [[JerkassWoobie mostly sympathetic character]] [[AudienceSurrogate that a lot of people could relate to]] due to his only major scenes being him trying to cope with being [[FriendZone told]] "LetsJustBeFriends". Of course, it still applies, since after the previous spoilers, the amount of people that perceived him as a badass suddenly increased even though his actions were unpopular. Another reason for this trope is that Eridan apologised for his actions and was (seemingly?) forgiven. [[SarcasmMode Because saying sorry automatically makes it okay.]]
