** TheFlash ends up in a Christmas truce with the Ultra-Humanite, a supervillain, in donating toys to orphans. When the Humanite offers to repair and 'improve' a gift he accidentally broke, the Flash suspiciously asks if this means it's going to blow up when activated. The Humanite's only response is "Flash... It is ''Christmas''".

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' While not really evil per se, both [[ControlFreak Stan]] and [[SoapBoxSadie Hayley]] [[NotSoDifferent are fanatical in their political views]]. They are either [[WellIntentionedExtremist self-righteous fanatics at best]] and [[StrawHypocrite hypocrites at their worst]], but they have their moments:
* In one episode, Stan is appalled when it's revealed that Francine's biological parents left her at the airport because their flight didn't allow children (even Klaus -- who lived in Germany during its Nazi regime -- is disgusted that a couple would just abandon their baby and not feel any remorse) and Hayley herself was shocked when the group of environmentalists she joined were planning to blow up a mall (with Hayley backing out because she doesn't want to kill innocent people just to further her cause).

** It goes even further at the end of the episode, when it is revealed that [[spoiler: Arkady Duvall is Ra's' own son and that Ra's went out of his way to rescue an aged-beyond-his-years Arkady from a third-rate rest-home because "What father can ever forget his son?"]]

* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'':
** Surprisingly enough, The Red Guy (you know, [[Literature/TheBible Satan]]) shows this. In the episode "Cow Fly", he generally feels sorry for Cow after she lost her friend (a fly to be exact) and offers a wiener to her as a replacement.
** [[TheDevilIsALoser The Red Guy]] is more Chaotic Neutral than Evil, since he has a completely different motivation in every episode.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'': Many of the ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' villains have their moments:



** Stewie Griffin gets subjected to this in the later episodes. In a particular episode ("Chick Cancer"), he is shown to be disgusted by Brian's offhand racist remark when Stewie asks, "What kind of man would I be if I ran away from my problems?" and Brian replies, "Well, you'd be a black man." This being [[DiabolicalMastermind Stewie]] who tried to kill his mother, and take over the world.
** Stewie also finds Penelope, a girl who is violent as he is, to be a bad influence on him with her constant mass murder sprees and crossing the line when she requested that Stewie kill his best friend, Brian.
** Stewie also has his limits when making his statements known if he finds something distasteful himself. In "Brian the Bachelor", when knocking a spoon out of Lois’s hand, Stewie states ''Well, I guess the pilot was JFK, Junior'' but he also found it in poor taste.

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'':
** Parodied in the TV movie, ''Good Wilt Hunting''. When Wilt is in prison there are groups of stereotypical prisoners who rattle off their misdeeds. When the last one says that after he got in an argument with his wife, he took away the dog he gave her, one of the others remarks "That's just evil."
*** In a moment of FridgeHorror, the inmate's story can be interpreted as him ''killing'' the dog.

** Of course, he turned Equestria into a hell on earth solely for his own amusement, and has a habit of MindRape and BreakTheCutie, again solely for his own amusement, [[MoralMyopia so it's hard to sympathize with him.]] Not to mention he only seemed mad about that because it [[ItsAllAboutMe happened to him]], and given that he's even more powerful than Celestia, there was literally no other way to stop him.

** Stan's lifelong dream has been to be the best man at someone's wedding, and came close to doing so when he hooked up Principal Lewis with the school superintendent. However, despite how badly Stan wanted this, he was absolutely disgusted when he learned Lewis' life [[BeenThereShapedHistory was the basis]] for ''Series/DifferentStrokes'' and his friend Dudley really was molested by the bicycle shop man.
--->'''Stan''': ''You just left Dudley there!''
--->'''Principal Lewis''': I did. He's real messed up now.

** Even though The Penguin hates Two-Face ''and'' would kill for a chance to kill the guy once and for all, when asked if he was the one who kidnapped Two-Face from the hospital he denies it, stating that "plucking a rogue from their hospital bed just isn't right".

** In the time travel episode, the message from the Vandal Savage of the present to the Vandal Savage of WorldWarII includes a note that he ''has'' to get rid of "that raving lunatic" UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. Though arguably this is not so much a matter of principles as a matter of recognizing that Hitler is not, as commonly misbelieved, a master tactician and general, and so his leadership only impairs the Nazi war effort.

* Gargamel might be pretty nasty in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' but even he saves the life of a stray cat that his godfather Balthazar wanted to kill just because the cat was Azrael's friend.

**In "Cartoon Wars Part 1 & 2'", Kyle calls him out for making fun of other religions, particularly his (Judaism). But when ''Family Guy'' shows an image of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, Cartman justifies this by saying he's just a little boy and this is a cartoon. [[MemeticMutation ("It's WRAA-AUNG!")]]. Interestingly enough, South Park has shown the Islamic prophet both uncensored ("Super Best Friends]] and censored (episodes after that).
