* 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.]]

* Belkar, Redcloack, Miko and Tarquin from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' get this kind of treatment. There are those who insists that Belkar, Tarquin and Redcloak aren't evil despite their canonical [[CharacterAlignment Evil alignment]] and there are those that are willing to defend Miko's actions despite the fact that she [[spoiler: fell for killing [[ChaoticGood Lord Shojo]]]].

to:

* ''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.

* A major chunk of the cast of ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' arguably gets this treatment, given that most of the characters who would otherwise be clear-cut villains have their violent histories or pastimes only vaguely alluded to, and when they are acknowledged, it is usually played for dark humor. Meanwhile, they are also pretty much all physically attractive, [[AffablyEvil affable]] on a one-to-one basis... and held up by some fans as genuinely wonderful people. The only one to draw serious hatred from most of the fandom seems to be Aniz, who stands out by dint of having actually hurt some well-loved major characters on-panel.

* Geisha in ''LastRes0rt'' has been pretty heavily implied as both a rapist and serial killer [[MadArtist in the name of art]], but is athletic, well-spoken, and curiously nonchalant about his position on the show. As a result, some... pretty interesting pairings tend to show up in the fandom...

* Rob Ten Pas' [[Webcomic/{{Bomango}} Gogo Bomango]] is antisocial, unhygienic, aggressive, and legally insane. But since we can't smell her, she's funny, and she's smokin' hot (if you can get past the fact that she's not human to the point that she can reproduce by budding and can survive by eating electrical wiring if necessary), she's a hilarious heroine instead of the rotten bitch she'd be despised as in real life. Rob's hung a lampshade on this in his DeviantArt journal at [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/journal/24651887/ least]] [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/journal/20598253/ twice]].

* In ''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.

* Luke from ''FreakAngels'' is a hobo that has trouble locating a pair of pants and mostly uses his psychic powers to manipulate women into sleeping with him, but has gained a little fan following because he's handsome, intelligent and constantly putting himself as the poor innocent victim of his mean, mean friends.

* No love for [[HannaIsNotABoysName Doc Worth]]? He's rude, grungy, bluntly mean and all-around sleazy, yet still sustains a surprisingly dedicated fanbase.
