However, WordOfGod claims that it's not totally beyond repair.

* In ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', Fauna says of the antagonist Maleficent: "Maleficent doesn't know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don't think she's really very happy." However, unlike most uses of this trope, it's not used to garner any sympathy; Maleficent is one of Disney's most [[CardCarryingVillain openly and unrepentantly evil villains]] and has no redeeming features whatsoever ([[EvilIsCool undeniable coolness notwithstanding.) The only characterisation purpose this line serves is to showcase Fauna as the most gentle-hearted of the fairies, and in terms of plot it gives Flora her EvilCannotComprehendGood realisation that lets them trick Maleficent.

* The thing that kicks off [[spoiler:Eas/Setsuna's]] HeelFaceTurn in ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' is when she realizes this. Her life was cold, gray, impersonal, and she's been repeatedly asked to put herself in great pain and shorten her lifespan for fights she loses anyways. And all her infiltration of the heroines has accomplished is give her a taste of their happy lives.
