** Granted this is to be expected, as no one in the game is "evil" per se.

* Papyrus from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. He's trying desperately to capture a human in order to join the royal guard. However, his puzzles are almost all painfully easy (he even goes as far to solve an early one ''for'' you), and if you ask him for advice for the one puzzle with anything resembling real difficulty, he'll just tell you where the switch is. [[spoiler: If you flirt with him during his fight, he spends the whole battle thinking about his date. After the fight, you can go on the date with him immediately by backtracking a single screen, presumably less than five minutes after he was just fighting you.]]

* Lieutenant Reinke in ''Film/ThePassage'' is this. He's frequently horrified by NaziNobleman Captain von Berkow's cruel and torturous methods, leading an amused von Berkow to comment that he "has no stomach for the fight."

* RedVsBlue: Played with in an odd way. Caboose has to pretend to be evil in order to be useful in a fight. He does this by imagining kittens with spikes on them, and declaring a hatred for babies. Nonetheless, he utterly destroys the mooks he was fighting.

* In ''{{Ratman}}'', the minions of Jackal, who wear spooky skeleton outfits, in the first chapter forget they were supposed to kidnap Shuto. So they instead played with and fed stray kittens.

* 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. * Killer from ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' doesn't seem to enjoy working under Carface, and doesn't really seem to have anything against Charlie or Itchy. Also shown when he gleefully greets Charlie near the end and seems to show reluctance to Carface's plan to kill Charlie in the beginning such as when he faints after recalling it. * Kronk from ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' doesn't quite get the villainy thing. Not so useful, since he's Yzma's only henchman. * Bartok in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''. For being the minion of such a dark and evil master, he himself is not particularly evil. Or competent, for that matter; he almost kills Rasputin when he tries to break his phylactery on a whim. He ultimately [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere bails]] on Rasputin just before the final battle, finally realizing the depths of the man's insanity.

* Pretty much ''all'' of Lord Hater's Watchdogs in ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' are this, given their [[SurroundedByIdiots incompetence]] and how easily swayed they are by Wander's friendliness. The only exception is Hater's right-hand man Commander Peepers.
