* The live action ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' embellishes Cindy Lou Who's encounter with the [[PaperThinDisguise Santa-disguised Grinch]] as he's stealing her home's Christmas trappings. She tells him that the Grinch isn't a bad person, just lonely. The Grinch remarks to himself that she's a "nice kid", but a "baaad judge of character". Given his later [[ItWasHisSled change of heart]], it turns out she was spot on after all.

Added DiffLines:

*** More to the point, Lear failed to understand that carving up his kingdom according to how much his daughters claimed to love him, meant that the ones who came off best would simply be the ones who could most convincingly fake their love for him. He also failed to see that giving away all his land and power to his daughters was incompatible with wanting them to treat him as though he still had it.

Added DiffLines:

* Creon in Creator/{{Sophocles}}'s Theatre/{{Antigone}}. Basically, every single character he meets, he utterly fails to spot that they have good reasons for acting the way they do, and wastes an inordinate amount of time accusing people of being selfish, corrupt or (in the case of Antigone herself) just plain female.

* Ralphie, from ''StormOfTheCentury'', who insists that Andre [[SignificantAnagram Linoge]], who has been responsible for five deaths so far and is heavily implied to be ''TheDevil'', isn't a bad guy because he gave Ralphie a present, and "bad guys don't give kids presents." To be fair, Ralphie is about 5 years old.

* Otacon of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is shown to be attracted to the murderous Sniper Wolf, whom he claims is really a nice person [[YouFailLogicForever since she likes dogs]]. Snake actually lampshades this by claiming that Otacon has Stockholm Syndrome (hostage attraction to one's captors).

** Catelyn. She was the one who introduced Eddard to her "little brother figure."
** Basically, Littlefinger just seems to have this weird ability to nullify everyone's (with one or two exceptions) judge of character in regards to himself, [[MagnificentBastard and he knows it!]]

to:

** Catelyn. She jumps to the conclusion that Tyrion is an untrustworthy moustache-twirler (granted, she's not the only one unable to see his heroic streak). She considers her sister to be bit flighty, but otherwise sound... until it gets rubbed in her face (nope: crazy lady be crazy). And, although she loves him, she considers her brother an airhead (he is, to an extent; but, mainly because he never gets full information). And, she considers Roose Bolton a dependable commander (up to a very sharp point, it's true; yes). She was the one who introduced Eddard to her "little brother figure."
figure", too.
** Basically, Littlefinger just seems to have this weird ability to nullify the negative in ''almost'' everyone's (with one or two exceptions) judge judgement of character in regards to himself, his character, [[MagnificentBastard and he knows it!]]
