* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': The apparent main villain, [[spoiler:Salem]], hates humanity for unspecified reasons and wants to see them all suffer. However, she does not hesitate to acknowledge mankind's strengths, and admits that, when unified, humanity is powerful. She even displays an acute understanding of how a small amount of hope can turn the despondent into determined warriors, calling it "undeniably mankind's greatest attribute", which is rather unusual for a villain like her.

** Cinder, one of Salem's subordinates, respects and praises Pyrrha as she learns how she uses her powers over polarity, commenting that she makes everyone else think she's fated to win, but in fact uses her powers to subtly influence her battles to make her own destiny. For someone who enjoys using subterfuge and manipulation like Cinder, it makes Pyrrha deeply interesting.
** When Watts, who was previously derisive toward Cinder because she had been maimed in her encounter with the young and inexperienced Ruby, discovers that Ruby cut off the tail of Tyrian, his group's resident assassin, he's momentarily taken aback, and then becomes genuinely impressed, commenting that "the students aren't pushovers."

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} has this attitude toward Charles Xavier, despite their widely-differing views on human-mutant relations (it helps that he realizes they both want what's best for mutantkind, even if their methods can't mesh).

** In ''Franchise/TheFlash'', The Flash's RoguesGallery tends to have this as their defining trait toward their nemesis (prominently toward Barry Allen when he was wearing the mask during the Silver Age, but also toward Wally West as well), to the point that their code of conduct forbids them to ever kill ''any'' Flash. It helps that most of them [[EvenEvilHasStandards have standards to begin with]]. (However, this doesn't carry over to their ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' incarnations, where they're more than willing to kill Wally West at the first opportunity.) It does carry over to their incarnations in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', albeit limited to Barry Allen (they are dismissive of Jay Garrick and Wally West).
