* Hexxus, the Spirit of Destruction and pollution embodied in ''WesternAnimation/FerngullyTheLastRainforest'' gets this even though he's trying to level a rainforest full of plant and animal life as well as sentient fairies that depend on its existence to survive. It doesn't help that the movie is {{Anvilicious}}, the protagonists (save maybe for [[CrazyAwesome Batty]] [[CloudCuckoolander Koda]]) are bland and rather uninteresting, and Hexxus himself is voiced by Creator/TimCurry, with all the implications this entails. And he gets one of the best {{Villain Song}}s of all times.

** Bill Cipher, who is implied to be the BigBad of the entire series, he is a living embodiment of the Illuminati symbol and he has psychotic behavior but fans love him. He is often drawn as a sexy man with [[BlindingBangs one eye covered]] and [[ManOfWealthAndTaste dapper clothes]] who is sometimes shipped with Dipper or Mabel. When the episode "Sock Opera" where he possesses Dipper's body debuted, fans started fawning over "Bipper" and outright calling him sexy even though he tried to kill Mabel.

** Strangely, these views seems to be endorsed by [[AllLovingHero Steven himself]], who consistently takes a generous view on their actions. He dismisses insults to Lapis as "She was just trying to find her way home," and has to be actively reminded several times ([[spoiler: prior to her HeelFaceTurn]]) that Peridot is their enemy. The closest he ever comes to acknowledging a Homeworld Gem doing a bad thing is when he calls Jasper "mean." It's perhaps worth noting that Steven's trusting attitude seems to bear a great deal of fruit, with both Lapis and Peridot regarding him as their friend, and most of their more positive actions being done for him.

"mean," and the closest he comes to acknowledging a human doing a bad thing is his opinion on Kevin.

** Trixie from "Boast Busters" had fans protesting she was just a traveling entertainer (true) whose audience was being unnecessarily mocking and hostile, that she was justified in humiliating Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash in front of their friends and neighbors, and that she was unjustly punished at the end of the episode, largely ignoring that she's a boastful, lying egomaniac both on- ''and'' off-stage. She did seem guilty about one of her lies indirectly leading to [[BearsAreBadNews an Ursa Minor attacking Ponyville]] and admirably ''tried'' to fight it off, but after the threat is dealt with by Twilight Sprakle, she's right back to being all bluff and bravado. At the end of "Magic Duel" Trixie does have a supposed HeelFaceTurn and renames herself as "The Great and ''Apologetic'' Trixie". Funnily enough, the reason she initially stated for her revenge (having her reputation and livelihood destroyed) were the exact same things her fans complained about. This came back in full force in "No Second Prances" as some fans cried foul at what they thought was a KnightTemplar Twilight Sparkle destroying Trixie's emerging friendship with Starlight Glimmer when it was actually Trixie [[OpenMouthInsertFoot opening her mouth and seeing how many hooves she can fit into it]] that ruined their friendship temporarily.

Added DiffLines:

** Happens InUniverse in the episode ''[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheEmberIslandPlayers The Ember Island Players]]''. The Gaang watch ''The Boy in the Iceberg'', a play about their adventures performed by the titular Ember Island Players. The play is [[PropagandaPiece Fire Nation propaganda]], and so it puts the Fire Nation in a ''much'' better light than the series does.
*** Play!Azula lacks most of the real Azula's psychopathy and mental instability. She doesn't shoot Iroh in the play's version of ''[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheChase The Chase]]'', and she keeps her sanity throughout the finale, unlike the real Azula, who had a [[VillainousBreakdown spectacular breakdown]].

** Even ''Tirek'' the SatanicArchetype that he is, gets the leather pants by fans thinking like Discord and Diamond Tiara, he just wanted friends and felt [[ThenLetMeBeEvil betrayed]] when his brother joined the ponies and ignored him. These same fans are quick to ignore the fact that he destroyed Twilight's beloved tree home, drained the life force out of everypony, and in a bad future in the S5 Finale, blasts the ''shit'' out of the entire world while growing to increasingly terrifying heights and not giving a damn that ponies are being hurt by his actions. Fans will give him an excuse that his parents were at the very least neglectful or raised him TheSpartanWay, his brother was the cause of his evil.

** In fact, in a reality where he did get what he wanted, marrying Maddie, he still became a bitter, controlling man, to the point [[spoiler: where Maddie threw him into the ghost zone]].

* In the old ''{{Voltron}}'' cartoon, many girls adored the [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed evil]] Prince Lotor, despite his attempts not only to kidnap Princess Allura, kill the Voltron Force and raze her planet to a pile of ash, but also (and repeatedly) to force her into marriage, brainwash her, or commit various other despicable acts; he has never shown an ounce of remorse for any of this. Many fans will attempt to argue that he was forced to do this by his father, even though he hatched and enjoyed half these plans, and though he continued making them after he usurped his father. Others will say it's all out of love for Allura, even though he was willing to throw her away for another princess that looked just like her.
