* Zenith from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzags]] this to hell and back...especially the ''sympathetic'' part, considering what happens. Her ridiculously petty motivations/desires and long-winded ranting speeches certainly come across as this, as does her failure. Later, though, we do see she is capable of some [[BodyHorror pretty horrifying stuff]]; yet she's also capable of being adorably helpful when in "good" mode. That just makes her subsequent reversion, painful shutdowns, and nearly AndIMustScream status later on just painful to watch.

** Likewise Caliborn comes off as too much of a StupidEvil brat to be a true threat. And than we see how he ended changing his name to [[spoiler: [[BigBad Lord English]]...]]

*** It's later revealed that he really doesn't care about killing people, he's just doing it to stay close to his crush. However, his [[LargeHam grandiose mannerisms]] and [[RoyalBrat general demeanor]] certainly qualify him as this, given the fact that he wants to be taken seriously, but everyone around him [[TheFriendNobodyLikes just finds him annoying]].
