**More minor character Charlie Dog also qualifies as one. Sure, he forces himself to be Porky Pig's pet and he's very manipulative but he's also clearly homeless and faces constant rejection from several of his "masters". There's also the fact that he can pull off a really adorable CryCute.

** Starlight Glimmer. As a filly, her best friend Sunburst rescued her from being crushed by books, only to gain his Cutie Mark in the process, running off and leaving her behind. Traumatized by this action, Starlight vowed never to let something like differences and Cutie Marks ruin anymore of her friendships, becoming a powerful unicorn in her own right, creating the village of Our Town and stripping everyone of their Cutie Marks. When the Mane Six put a stop to this, she vowed revenge - a petty one at that as she obtained a time travel spell and modified it to allow her to alter the past, using it to stop the Sonic Rainboom. When Twilight learns of why she's doing this, the princess has to talk her down and convince her to put aside her mad vendetta, asking her to give friendship another try. [[note]]But this also make her UnintentionallyUnsympathetic, as she could have got over it, considering that it was a long time ago.[[/note]]

* ''WesternAnimation/KryptoTheSuperdog'':
** Snooky Wookums is a bratty, manipulative little backstabber of a kitten but its clear that Mechanikat barely treats him with any respect whatsoever. Even Supercat's fan club admitted they felt sorry for him in the episode "Join The Club".
** Ignatius. He's greedy and a massive narcissist but as a villain, he's so utterly pathetic that its hard not to feel even a little bad for him.
** Hot Dog. Sure, he's easily the rudest and most temperamental of the Dog Star Patrol but he just can't catch a break and he certainly didn't deserve to be drained of his power in "Bathound Meets The Dog Stars".

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** Many of the villains fit into this category, with Harley Quinn being one of them. First off, despite working with The Joker, it's a rare day that in ''this'' [[TheVerse 'verse]] that she comes [[AntiVillain anywhere near true villainy herself]] ([[TheDragon not that she's not dangerous per-se]]). Second, her boyfriend's ''the Joker''. [[FridgeHorror Think about it]]. The closest she gets to a VillainSong is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp6wLXj4-5A this lovely number]], which is her playing her own MasochismTango relationship ''[[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]]''. Which makes perfect sense given... [[VillainousHarlequin well,]] [[DontExplainTheJoke you know...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DCSuperHeroGirls'' does this to Blackfire. Sure, she's snarky, insensitive, and gets way too blinded by ambition, but also consider that she's been pushed by head master Sinestro to essentially be an uncaring person, and the fact she looks fondly on a childhood picture of her and Starfire, clearly wanting to patch things up with her.
** There's also Lena Luthor. Sure, she may resort to underhanded means to acquire, but also consider how she went bald from trying to do so from experimentation, and how she's controlled by Brainiac. In the Lego projects for the series, she's much more ineffectual compared to Dark Opal, and while she still goes for underhanded means to get power, she won't resort to ''destroying the earth'' to get what she wants.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Whatamess}}'': Trash from the DiC adaptation of the series is a "mean pitbull" stereotype with a reputation as a sarcastic bully but he's been tricked into eating fertilizer to cure a cold, nearly run over by a train, had his birthday forgotten and his owner apparently lives in squalor. Also, in one episode, he and Whatamess are captured by a dog catcher and sent to a pound. When Trash finds out that all his usual escape exits are sealed, he breaks down into a fit of tears, thinking he'll be left to die in the pound. Also, his UglyCute [[http://joenipote.com/images/whatamess_snap3.jpg?crc=319969384 character design]] only serves to amplify his "woobie" factor.
