* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', there is an episode in which a teenage villainess, Charmcaster, is introduced working with her uncle [[EvilSorceror Hex]], who is [[AbusiveParents rather abusive toward her]] throughout the episode, with a running line of Charmcaster's being "Yes, uncle" in a submissive tone. In the end of the episode, however, Charmcaster reveals she's only been using Hex for her own evil scheme and promptly knocks him out with her magic. While both Hex and Charmcaster are villains, it's very hard not to support Charmcaster on this matter.

** Similarly, in the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the list of people who [[spoiler: have their bending taken away by Amon include the leader of a gang, three douchebags who cheat at Pro Bending, and possibly the Republic City's councilman, [[SmugSnake Tarrlok]]]]. And while the lattermost of these [[spoiler:turns out to have a DarkAndTroubledPast and atones for his actions thereafter]], he still had it coming at the time. [[TheChessmaster This is a major part of Amon's plan,]] both building peoples' confidence in him by taking out the less sympathetic, and using them to generalize all benders as being corrupt and power-hungry. This is also why he doesn't de-bend Korra when he has a golden opportunity to, [[DontCreateAMartyr he would only be creating a martyr.]] As his number of followers grow, he becomes much less picky.

* When ''former'' Colonel Simmons from ''Series/StargateSG1'' was eventually killed by being blown out of an airlock by the heroes, just after becoming the host to a particularly nasty Goa'uld who had been giving the team much grief. The reason no one mourned Simmons? He'd been an even '''BIGGER''' asshole to the team for much longer.
** Many [=SG-1=] villains (mostly Goa'ulds) go out this way.

This would otherwise be brutal, but considering her targets were a bunch of despicable megalomaniac tyrants (Repli-Carter doesn't care either way), they had it coming.

** Played less sympathetically with [[JerkAss Sheldon]]. The guy receives a HumiliationConga complete with all his friends turning on him, his car being badly battered and smashed up, and a particularly nasty [[GroinAttack kick in the balls]] but only because he ''forced'' Ash into a race with him, put down said friends as "just muscle" behind their backs (while gloating about how they could never be convinced that he looks down on them because they trust him), and later, when he loses his race, tries to frame ''Ash'' for bad behaviour by ''smashing up aforementioned car with a rock'', and then ''claiming that Ash tried to come onto him the night of their meeting''. Needless to say, [[TheStoner Rumisiel's]] revealing the truth with [[EngineeredPublicConfession a recording of Sheldon's very words]], as well as [[BaseBreaker Missy's]] aforementioned GroinAttack, were largely viewed as both characters' most shining moments to date.

One of the robbers spots a certain pimp he knows who was notoriously cruel to his prostitutes and recently managed to beat the rap for murdering one of them; [[EvenEvilHasStandards figuring this is as good a time as any for revenge]], he takes aim and shoots him.
