* Given the reveal, [[spoiler: Pink Diamond herself]] is also receiving this treatment. Many fans view her sympathetically as she felt that she was unloved by her elder "sisters," and her [[spoiler: donning her Rose Quartz]] disguise as her attempt of trying to change herself. However, this also leads to several issues: because of her reckless decisions, [[spoiler:Pink Diamond]] is partially responsible for the rebellion which lead to the deaths of countless Gems, [[spoiler:swears Pearl into silence which was still in effect for thousands of years]], and the corruption of the Gems on either side.

** The Daughters of Aku. They gained a lot of sympathy from the fans who saw them as {{Tragic Villain}}s who've had no choice over their own fate, in spite of their ruthlessness and LackOfEmpathy. Then, during a climactic fight, [[spoiler:Ashi more-or-less states that they never had a choice of what they would do with their lives from the day they were born when confronting her mother]], indicating that the sympathy for these characters was an IntendedAudienceReaction. It also helps that it's rare that fans even justify their actions towards Jack anyway.

** Charmcaster in ''Ultimate Alien'' is pretty much [[{{Teen Titans}} Terra]] when it comes to fan reaction: she's ''meant'' to be a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds AntiVillain, but certain fans focus too much on the "Woobie" and "Anti" while ignoring the "Destroyer of Worlds" and "Villain", while on the flipside there are those who [[RonTheDeathEater only insist on seeing the "Destroyer of Worlds" and "Villain" but not the "Woobie" and "Anti".]] ''Omniverse'' almost seems to parody these two extremes with Hobble and Ben's attitudes toward her respectively, leaving Rook as the only one taking the intended middle-road response.

** Azula is a callous cruel manipulator who kills without hesitation and gleefully advances the aims of the genocidal Fire Nation, but thanks to being the best example of EvilIsSexy and {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry in the show she has a large chunk of fans who insist she's a tragic woobie or just misunderstood. The GrandFinale gives her one hell of a FreudianExcuse and ''[[Comicbook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch The Search]]'' hints that she [[spoiler:might be redeemable after all]], but the bulk of the DILP treatment started long before this, and it doesn't excuse her actions.

** While Lemongrab was intended to be a HateSink, he still has fans. Yup, he has a loud fanbase that often forgot just why everyone hates him so much. [[spoiler: Even after being revealed he uses his mental illness as an excuse to be a jerkass to everyone (when Lemonjon got Empathy), eating and mutilating his own brother, and finally becoming a [[FatBastard corpulent]] [[TheCaligula dictator]], his fanbase ''still'' tries to get everyone to sympathize with him despite revelations showing he doesn't deserve it.]]

** Jasper is [[ArrogantKungFuGuy cocky]] and downright [[JerkAss cruel]], nearly ordering the death of all the Crystal Gems before she realizes Steven has Rose's gem, and later forces Lapis to fuse with her in a style very similar to sexual assault. The fandom is more than eager to excuse her actions or outright ignore them to make her a fluffier character and put her into romantic ships with the characters she kept as prisoners.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Stewie tends to get sympathetic treatment in later episodes, largely due to putting up with Brian's selfish egotism and his ComedicSociopath parents, disregarding the fact that even following his Flanderization, Stewie is often portrayed as a sadist who tries to kill his mother and puts Brian through all sorts of painful stunts for [[DisproportionateRetribution petty slights]] or even [[ItAmusedMe just to see if he can]]. (eg, giving him two gangster style beatings for overdue gambling fees or travelling in time to sabotage every meaningful point in his life over a gay joke).

** Blue Diamond is seen by many as a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, which she is, but she also owns a kidnapped group of humans, tried to murder Steven when she thought he was Rose Quartz, and has been an active participant in planetary genocide for thousands of years. Good luck telling that to all her fans, who seem convinced all she did was sing a song about being upset over the death of her potential lover.
