* UsedToBeASweetKid: All things truly wicked start with an innocence, after all, and fans of a leather pantsed character can end up clinging to a character's (canon or otherwise) sweet kid phase because of the inherent tragedy of it all.

* EvilVirtues

to:

* EvilVirtuesEvilVirtues: Being a bad guy doesn't always mean that a character has no redeeming qualities, after all.



* OffstageVillainy

to:

* OffstageVillainyOffstageVillainy: The ShowDontTell rule of storytelling counts for a lot and spending more time talking about a villain's wicked deeds than showing them can mess with a reader's perceptions.



* PunchClockVillain

to:

* PunchClockVillainPunchClockVillain: The character is in many respects a normal person that just happens to be on the side of the villains. Can make a character come across as either more sympathetic or less so depending on the viewer's point of view (if it's the former, then you have this trope).



* SissyVillain

to:

* SissyVillainSissyVillain: Villains of this stripe can be attractive to some people.

* WhiteHairBlackHeart

to:

* WhiteHairBlackHeart WhiteHairBlackHeart: Not all white haired characters are evil, of course, but many evil characters that are targets of this trope have white hair

Common reasons for this include the character being wicked in a [[WickedCultured classy]] or [[EvilIsCool cool]] way. A [[EvilIsSexy physically attractive villain]] is much more likely to be subject to this trope than a physically ugly one; BeautyEqualsGoodness, after all, and shallow as it may be, it seems that, for some fans, this is the case even when the character's beauty only extends to their appearance. AllGirlsWantBadBoys may be a factor with male villains getting a female fandom that views them through this lens. A {{badass}} villain will naturally be preferred by many of these over [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass meeker heroic characters]] at times, as well.
