* JerkSue is when the writer does this, with a character who is revered by other character in the story despite acting like a total prick to them.

* JerkSue is when the writer does this, with a character who is revered by other character in perfect and can do no wrong from the story despite acting like ''story's'' perspective, but is actually a total prick to them.horrible person when viewed more objectively.

In fanfiction, they are frequently the love object of the local MarySue, who [[LoveRedeems uses the power of love to redeem the character]]. [[LoveMartyr "I can fix him"]] is a commonly expressed sentiment among fans of Dracos in Leather Pants. In extreme cases, the affection these characters receive from fans can lead them to forget that ''[[MisaimedFandom they're actually still supposed to be villains]]''. Or, on the flip side, even the worst crossings of the MoralEventHorizon can be rationalized, while any insult from the hero towards the villain is cast as deplorably mean. The writer's attempt to make the villain more "sympathetic" will likely cause them to [[BadassDecay remove everything that made the character so cool/well liked in the first place.]]

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.

* An UpopularPopularCharacter is a character who everybody among the main cast thinks is a complete jerk, complete loser, or both, but fans can't get enough of; applies to ''any'' type of character, not necessarily a villain. (Unlike a Draco in Leather Pants, this is often the writer's intent.)
