* [[Franchise/DanganRonpa Monokuma]]. He's a teddy bear who cracks bear puns like no one's business, has an awesomely twisted theme song, and indulges in innuendos and black comedy. He's also more than happy to manipulate high schoolers into murdering each other for no reason other than to make them suffer ultimate despair, crushing their hopes and dreams at every opportunity. And yet, he's proven to be on of the most popular characters in the entire series.

* Almost every BigBad from the ''Literature/DragonsOfRequiem'' series counts. Many of them are fully fleshed out in each trilogy and make sure they go well out of their way to murder and torture as many innocents as possible in excessively brutal, creative ways. Dies Irae, in particular, is so over-the-top in what he does that it's impossible ''not'' to enjoy how much he relishes in his wickedness.

** Cersei Lannister is a secondary character throughout the first three books. She's an interesting combination of [[IceQueen callousness]], [[DragonLady ruthlessness]], and [[MyBelovedSmother protective mother-ness]]. In the fourth and fifth book, she becomes a POV character and we see from her thoughts and actions just how unfit she is to rule seven kingdoms. She enters further into "Love to Hate" territory when many of her schemes backfire in her face, usually to comic effect.

** From ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' is Kuroto Dan, an insane, egomaniacal sadist who makes sure to give people a bad day when he's not planning things out. He's insanely petty, going to the absolute extreme when his ego is the slightestbit bruised, he boasts about his genius with a ridiculous [[EvilIsHammy hamminess]] in both speech and facial expressions whenever he feels like, and if you want him to get punched in the face, that's normal considering how much he feels the need to taunt his opponents at a range where they could easily do so, but rarely end up doing. While it's fun to see him get beaten up, it's more fun to see him do just be a horrible human being that nobody likes.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider''
** ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' has Takeshi Asakura[=/=]Kamen Rider Ouja, an uncaring serial killer who subverts just about anything resembling redeemability. His parents died in a fire...that ''he'' caused out of boredom. He saves a little girl...for monster bait and doesn't care she's going to die. He wanted to reunite with his brother...because he hadn't died in the fire and he wanted to make sure he knew what a horrible person he was. But every single time, he looks cool doing it and it's fun to see him be so horrible.

* Lezard Valeth of ''ValkyrieProfile''. Somewhat problematic because half of his fanbase is in the DracoInLeatherPants camp, but even those that find him abhorrent believe the series wouldn't be half as good without him.

** Jerry, TheFriendNobodyLikes, who is "spared" by conspiring with the other monsters to ''ditch him mid-battle'', and is an unbelievably durable StoneWall just to make sure murdering him on the KillEmAll run is just as annoying. And even then, [[spoiler:the Fallen Child on a "No Mercy" run is willing to spare him at the start of battle, which has been interpreted as either the Child [[GoddamnedBats not wanting to bother]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards taking the time to kill him]], or deciding that having him be an obnoxious presence to other monsters is more cruel than just killing him outright.]] Thanks to all this, hating Jerry is more a fandom in-joke than any actual expression of malice. Even the "hate art" focuses mostly on how much the ''other characters'' hate him.

* Tubbs fromm ''VideoGame/NekoAtsume'' is a FatCat with a tendency to come into the player's yard and [[BigEater wolf down an entire food bowl instead of just a small bite like all of the other cats]], then lounge next to the bowl with a smug, give-no-craps look on their face. Oh, and [[PickyEater Tubbs will only eat food if it was paid for; they won't accept the free Thrifty Bitz]]. They're also one of the most popular cats amongst fans, who adore Tubbs ''because'' of these habits.

* From [[https://theleondude.itch.io/tawota-season-1 this]], we have [[BigBad Imaginee]], a {{Sadist}}ic, [[MindRape mind raping]], [[KnightOfCerebus terrifying]] [[HeroKiller hero]] [[FateWorseThanDeath "killing"]] individual who does everything he does ForTheEvulz. However, since that he is partially based on [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Zim]] and is [[EvilIsHammy extremely hammy]], along with [[PungeonMaster making extremely bad puns]] while committing MindRape, it's hard not to love him. [[WordOfGod Even the creator admits]] he's someone you love to hate.

* Possibly the most popular villain in the ''{{Suikoden}}'' franchise is Prince Luca Blight from [[SuikodenII 2]] for this reason. He is an unrepentantly cruel, deranged [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who commits horrific attrocities throughout the game; from slaughtering bands of ''children'' to outright genocide. Yet, because he is [[EvilIsHammy so over the top]] while still being terrifying, combined with his impressive track record in battle, he is often seen as the most memorable part of the game.
