* This characterizes ComicBook/RasAlGhul's attitude toward Franchise/{{Batman}}, as he consistently addresses the Dark Knight as "Detective" as a show of respect to the hero's intelligence and determination. The few times he faces Franchise/{{Superman}} he calls him "Icon." The only other person Ra's extends this honor to is Tim Drake (Robin III/Red Robin), who is regarded by Batman as the one person who will surpass his skills as an investigator.

* Many villains and regular Mooks express varying levels of respect for the Heroes of the DC universe.
** Superman is obviously one of the best examples as he treats everyone well regardless of their legal status and only shows disdain for the most despicable of bad guys [[EvenEvilHasStandards that even the other bad guys find repulsive.]]
*** In one comic, several low level criminals tells stories about their run-ins with various other DC heroes. At the end it's shown that Superman is taking them to the police station by flying their car over the city. afterwards he simply escorts the men out while at the same time respectfully giving them a YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre speech about getting out of crime. The last scene is of one criminal exclaiming to the other why they operate in Metropolis.
--->'''Criminal:''' Does that answer your question? At least when Metropolis' super guy catches you, he's not a jerk about it.
*** During the DeathOfSuperman story arc, many prisoners in jail are shown as being happy that Superman is gone. At the same time another majority of the prisoners admonish them for their attitudes showing that even though Superman would put them in jail, they still respect the fact that he's a hero.
--->'''One Prisoner:''' Hey man! Show some respect!
--->'''Another Prisoner:''' Yeah man! Superman [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas saved my mom's life!]]
*** During the CriticalCondition story arc, Superman is poisoned with kryptonite radiation and is slowly dying. He's trying to find Lois, who has disappeared and enlists Batman's help in finding her as he is too weak to do it alone. When Batman tries to question bikers at a biker bar where another woman disappeared under similar circumstances to Lois, they surround Batman and getting ready to fight. Shortly after Superman who is at this point barely able to walk comes in pleading for their help. The next exchange between Batman and Superman in the Batmobile after they get the info they need is just a massive CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
--->'''Batman:''' Their never afraid of you are they? Glowing green. Seeping radiation. You could crack this planet in two. And yet when they see standing there, struggling to keep yourself up in a doorway, they trip over each other to help you.

* In the Warlords of Draenor expansion of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the leader of the titular Warlords, [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Grom Hellscream]], is known as the Warlord with the iron will. He is fearless in battle, and even when his raiding party is exterminated, he's crucified on a tree in a desert, and starved until he's little more than skin and bones, he is strong enough to kill his captor with his teeth and escape. So it means that much more when, after the players defeat his army and he's captured by the traitor Gul'dan, his defiant speech is no longer about himself, but about how the players are an even more unstoppable force that Gul'dan has no hope against, using the same sort of descriptors used to define himself in legends.
