** One of the ways it's [[PetTheDog made clear]] that Tommen Baratheon isn't bad is that Tommen is given a trio of kittens, of whom he becomes very fond. This is in contrast to his older brother Joffrey, who was once told that a cat was pregnant with kittens, so he [[KickTheDog cut them out of her with a knife]]. And if you think that ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' could never be cute, just listen to the names Tommen picks: Ser Pounce, Lady Whiskers, and Boots. After four books full of endless betrayal and suffering, this is exactly what the audience needs.

* You really can't blame the MisaimedFandom of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' for thinking Tai Lung is awesome - after all, he's incredibly BadAss and [[EvilIsCool cool]] and [[UnintentionallySympathetic oddly sympathetic]] - but the real clincher comes when we see Shifu's flashbacks to raising him from a kitten.
