** [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Baron Zemo]] is prone to this, when someone actually merits it.

** [[spoiler: Maddie Pryor]], at this point an AntiVillain, is impressed by Harry's unconventional but effective use of his powers, which allow him to keep ahead of more nominally powerful and skilled opponents. She's also later impressed by the fact that, while he's less powerful than she is, he's strong enough to fight on even footing with her.
** During the ''Bloody Hell'' arc, [[spoiler: Dracula]] compliments Harry on the villains he has defeated and the reputation he has built amongst the supernatural community.community, specifically the fear he has inspired in its darker denizens. However, it comes with this coda...

* In Series/DowntonAbbey Thomas is a condescending ass to everyone, and loathes the aristocracy, but he does respect conviction. When his time in the military places him under the command of Matthew, Thomas would later relate, in private, that Matthew was a good, honorable man, and when he's injured Thomas wishes him well in his recovery. He was stationed with Lady Sybil at the local hospital, and together they cared for dozens of injured soldiers from the war. [[spoiler:Her death crushes Thomas]] who remarks that she was one of the few genuinely kind people he's ever known in his life.

** Out of all the foes Cell fought, he has the most respect for Goku. He has so much fun fighting Goku that he wanted Goku to eat a Senzu so they can keep fighting. When Goku bows out of the Cell Games and tells Cell that there was someone stronger than him, Cell didn't believe him, saying how Goku was stronger than Vegeta and Trunks combined.

** When Raoh first fully appears in the series, he holds Toki, one of Kenshiro's staunchest fighting allies, in considerably high regard--in fact, for him, Toki is the only fighter around who could conceivably match him in a fair duel, the only drawback being that Toki is suffering from a terminal illness caused by nuclear fallout. It helps that Toki was previously seen as a MessianicArchetype and, prior to the nuclear war, was considered (including by Kenshiro himself) to be the most suitable candidate for Hokuto Shinken successor and would probably have gotten it were it not for his illness. (It also says something when even Jagi is acknowledged by Ken to have admired Toki greatly.)
