* Basil in ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}'', although he never questions his boss Lord Rataxesís actions, he tend to soften them if he can. He even returns Isabelle (Babarís baby daughter) doll once Rataxes took it in an episode when he could ask for anything he wanted in Celesteville due to some obscure oath.

* [[ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderman The Superior Foes Of Spiderman]] were a whole superteam full of these, although Overdrive takes the cake, with his man-crush on Luke Cage. When Cage and Iron Fist beat up the team and get them arrested, he vehemently defends their actions.

** Jenner's best friend and minion Sullivan from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'' isn't really a bad guy at all, he just didn't choose his friends wisely. When Jenner plots to kill Nicodemus and Mrs. Brisby's children he objects to this, which leads to his HeelFaceTurn. Unfortunately, before he can officially join the heroes, he is stabbed in the back and mortally wounded by Jenner for interfering with his plans... but before he expires he pulls a RedemptionEqualsDeath when he throws a dagger into Jenner's back and kills him... with his last dying breath.
** Tiger from ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' makes his appearence as a member of the Mott Street Maulers, a gang of [[CatsAreMean cats]] that Fievel runs into. However, he quickly proves to be a goofy lug of a cat(A vegetarian, for one) and NotSoDifferent from Fievel himself. After the big musical number that allows Fievel to escape from his cage Tiger is quickly fired but doesn't mind, and when all is said and done helps Fievel's family with the search.

* HarleyQuinn in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is in crime just for fun and for her strange love toward TheJoker, she even has her own episodes struggling for rehabilitation. Other versions in other media does show a darker and more violent personality. Wesker the Ventriloquist is another example, of course his problem is his SplitPersonality that causes him to have an violent evil AlterEgo named Scarface (his Ventriloquist's dummy).

No, he doesn't kick himself by accident when trying to KickTheDog. He's a henchman to a CardCarryingVillain who can't quite wrap his mind around card-carrying villainy. As such, they often get confused and do "good" things like saying please or thank you or [[HelpfulMook being kind to the heroes in some way]] by mistake -- and get yelled at for it by their superior if caught. This character type tends to be predicated on the assumption that RousseauWasRight; theoretically, this so-called "villain" hasn't properly learned how to be bad. It is not just a matter of intelligence, the minion isn't goonish but very nice and gentle. Very much PlayedForLaughs, and most commonly used in children's shows, though if written right they can be just as funny or even more funny in adult aimed media. They often get a MookFaceTurn at the end of the series, or earlier if their boss is particularly mean with a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal. They may also get a TheDogBitesBack moment to go along with it.

** ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''; Le Fou, Gastonís sidekick, is loyal to Gaston (albeit the latterís constant abuse) but is never shown to have any kind of malice.
** ''Disney/TheLionKing''; the Hyenas might be nasty, but not really evil, other than working for Scar. Latter films even show that the hyenas are also victims of the lions as the mistrust among both species is kind of a misunderstanding.



** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}''; Hadesí servants Pain and Panic, a duo of dimwitted cowardly spirits that fear Hades and serve him loyally, but with no real evil motivation in themselves.
