** In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', some Mandalorians and the codex itself mention that they sided with the Empire at least partially to get opportunities to fight the Jedi. In Revan's absence, they'll settle for the rest of the Order, believing that the Jedi are the most powerful warriors in the galaxy. After all, what better way to gain prestige than to fight and defeat the same people who trained Revan or held onto some of Revan's teachings? [[note]] This means their work for the Empire is a StealthInsult to the Sith, who they ''don't'' consider worthy of a good battle, and Mandalore the Vindicated openly expresses daidain for the Sith and Imperial military, saying that the Empire needs the Mandos to fight their battles for them.

** Consular companion Tharan Cedrax makes a habit of it. He's nominally a pacifist, but his ForScience motivation and belief that knowledge is valuable in and of itself, means that while he doesn't necessarily approve of the damage some WMD, technology-based ArtifactOfDoom, or ''highly'' unethical research project, he will approve of the cleverness it took to come up with it.

* In the beginning of ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', [[BigBad Cackletta]] ambushes Mario, Luigi, and Bowser (who is involved in an EnemyMine with the Bros.). Bowser's mad at her, not because of her evil plan, but because said plan was cool.
-->'''Bowser:''' You're the fiend who stole Peach's voice! How dare you pull off such a cool evil plan?

** Later in the season, Ezra more or less cons information from Hondo, promising him a finder's fee and then bluntly refusing to give it once he has what he wants. Hondo's response is [[SoProudOfYou pride]] in Ezra for learning so quickly.
** [[spoiler:Maul]] is highly amused when he finds out that Ezra once stole a Jedi holocron.

* In ''Shadow's Claim'', an ''Literature/ImmortalsAfterDark'' novel by Creator/KresleyCole, Sabine says to Salem, "You're lucky I like you, you prince-gouging, foul-mouthed sylphic man-slut. Ah, yes, I like these things about you indeed."



* The ''Series/{{Angel}}'' [[Recap/AngelS04E22Home season 4 finale]] deals with the aftermath of the heroes taking down the season's BigBad in the previous episode, in which a representative of [[GreaterScopeVillain Wolfram and Hart]] congratulates them on thwarting world peace.

A subtrope to VillainCred, the general respect a villain gets for their evil deeds from other villains. If it's a VillainTeamUp, the {{Card Carrying Villain}}s will often compliment their allies/rivals for their evilness. Compare ArsonMurderAndLifesaving. Compare InLoveWithYourCarnage when a villain falls in love with a hero due to the hero's violence. Contrast InsultBackfire. If a hero or other non-villain is on the receiving end, this becomes YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame or just BaddieFlattery. Compare and contrast TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou, where the hero admits he admires ''one'' thing about a villain he otherwise despises.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'':
** When captured by Ghorgor in the first book, Pilou plays a trick on him, teleporting his swords back to himself whenever Ghorgor tries to look at them. Ghorgor is so enraged by this that he... takes Pilou and Wismerhill into his warband.
** Wismerhill is very amused when mage Shamballeau kills 20 of his soldiers in an explosion, going from initial rage to happily adopting him as part of his own growing band.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'' someone mentions that Fenwick, the protagonist's father, would just have killed the king and be done with it. Oreg (who is an immortal slave, and had Fenwick as master before he was inherited by Ward) comments that this was one of his rather likeable traits. (The king is a jerk, Fenwick was an abusive husband and father, and probably treated Oreg horrible).
