One way to handle this is to present another character to [[FriendlessBackground befriend them.]] Ideally, this should be someone who could pose no threat or even be demanding, and depending on how the plot goes, the recovering villain becomes fond of this other character and may [[LivingEmotionalCrutch draw stability from their presence]]. The Morality Pet may even be somewhat pathetic (and will be told so), but has often gone through some anguish to which the recovering villain can relate secretly, or reminds the villain of someone he lost long ago. They're usually upbeat, though they might go a little [[TastesLikeDiabetes overboard sometimes.]] If handled poorly, they might become a SatelliteCharacter for the former villain.

If the Morality Pet dies or disappears and this causes the villain/anti-hero to revert back to his or her old ways, the Morality Pet was acting more like a MoralityChain. Compare PredatorTurnedProtector, where their "pet" is the thing they're supposed to prey upon, and they act as full-blown protector rather than simply caring for/petting them.

If the Morality Pet dies or disappears and this causes the villain/anti-hero to revert back to his or her old ways, the Morality Pet was acting more like a MoralityChain. MoralityChain, a similar trope often confused with this one. The difference between the two is subtle: A Morality Pet is a character who redeems a villain. The villain's affection for the pet starts them down the path of good, and even should the pet get hurt the villain will most likely behave as a hero (or anti-hero) in seeking their revenge or protecting the pet. By contrast, the Morality Chain keeps an otherwise anti-heroic character (such as a SociopathicHero) from going full villain. The loss of the chain would spell doom for any involved party, and likely anyone nearby as well. In a nutshell: A Morality Pet turns a bad guy good; a MoralityChain ''stops'' a good guy from turning bad. That said, the two tropes can certainly overlap: if the character redeems a villain and then also helps keep them from [[RedemptionFailure slipping back to evil]], he is both a Morality Pet and a Morality Chain.

Or to put it another way: The Morality Pet is a catalyst for a HeelFaceTurn; the MoralityChain is an inhibitor of a FaceHeelTurn. In this sense, the two are actually OppositeTropes despite their close similarities.

Compare PredatorTurnedProtector, where their "pet" is the thing they're supposed to prey upon, and they act as full-blown protector rather than simply caring for/petting them.

Arya plays this role for several different characters, including and Tywin in Season 2 2. He does seem genuinely fond of her but it doesn't stop him from leaving her to Gregor Clegane, and the Hound in probable death, once he leaves town.
** In
Seasons 3 3-4 it is played straighter with Arya and 4.Sandor "The Hound" Clegane, who spares a farmer after she pleads for him to do so and gradually treats her with increasing respect. Noticeably, the point where Sandor clearly gets on board with killing Polliver, is when he suggests trading Sandor a chicken in exchange for being able to rape Arya.
