Being in a romantic relationship can help humanize the characters, as either one will act heroically when the other is in danger - or, variantly, we get to see how evil they really are when one dies or is seriously wounded and the other doesn't. This might prompt the villain equivalent of a FreakOut in the ignored "lover" (at least for a while...) or, if the writers are really trying to showcase how soulless the baddies really are, even the injured party never expected any true intimacy. At that point, there's really no hope for redemption of ''any'' black hats you'll be seeing for a while. In the more humanized case, a truly evil BigBad might torment one just to piss off the other. If one gets killed off, the other will usually devolve into an obsessive nut, but sometimes will reform in memory of the other's death.

* Not quite minions, as Destro is TheDragon and the Baroness is part of the CouncilOfEvil, but the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/GIJoe'' villains are known for being romantically involved -- a surprisingly human show of emotion, given that everything else about them was pure evil.

** Meowth has been involved in several romances through the series. His OriginStory states he learned to walk and talk to impress another Meowth. He's also fallen for several Skitties, a Glameow, and a Purrloin (though the last was thwarted because it turned out to be a boy).
** Wobbuffet has fallen in love a couple times, too. In "Fear Factor Phony", he even thwarted a Team Rocket plot because they captured a Kirlia he was smitten on. He also fell for a female Wobbuffet, but walked away to stay with Team Rocket.

* In the original ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', MichaelIronside's bad guy character and Sharon Stone's bad girl character are a couple, even though she sleeps with Arnold's character for at least six weeks to build a cover (8 years' worth of memories including a wedding ceremony). Ironside goes insanely homicidal when Stone is knocked off by Arnold's LoveInterest.

* In ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', many of the fans have taken to pairing up Putata and Mekeke of the Shurara Crops. Other pairings involve Gyororo Nuii, or Kagege Gyororo, or Shurara and any other other members.

* Matt and Mello from ''Manga/DeathNote'' are either an example of this trope, or a platonic version of it, depending on how you interpret their (rather ambiguous) relationship. Matt is very devoted to Mello and will do anything he says, and even though he doesn't always show it overtly, Mello likewise cares for Matt. [[spoiler: They both end up making the ultimate sacrifice.]]

May sometimes intersect with SubordinateExcuse. Most likely does not have anything to do with ''those'' {{Minions}}.
