* [[{{Satan}} Lord Maledict]] is revered as a benevolent capitol-G God by many races of the Milky Way Galaxy in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. It's often justified - for example, Episode 69 reveals Maledict gave the Marmolims their home world for faithfully serving him. Even Cosmo and her race once worshiped him [[spoiler: until he betrayed them and masterminded their extermination]]. On the other side, Allysion is explicitly described as the God of Abraham in TheBible, who is worshiped by Christians and Jews and Muslims; too bad she happens to be a merciless AxCrazy control freak who enjoys committing genocide on those who refuse to worship her.

* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' gives us Mayo Mitama, a villain with "bad bad" publicity. In that she looks evil and does evil things, but, since people are afraid of judging by appearances, they always assume she didn't do them. Her name in Japanese, Mitama Mayo, translates to "Exactly what she looks like".

* The baby {{face}} vs baby face, Savio Vega vs Dennis Rivera "feud" in The World Wrestling League, where Rivera was convinced Vega was an example of this trope. To be fair, Dennis was [[CassandraTruth totally right until]], the fans cheering for Vega's efforts to screw Heavyweight Champion Glamour Boy Shane by pitting him against such wrestlers as El Mesias and [[Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio El Patron Alberto]]. But then El Patron joined the newly formed Gentlemen's Club [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness and Vega was fired,]] so Savio [[HeelFaceTurn was no longer an example when he returned.]]

* Veda Scott is an [[AmoralAttorney evil lawyer]] and something of a DirtyCoward\CowardlyLion to boot, but still gets to join Kevin Kelly during the recaps of Wrestling/RingOfHonor's tours and force Amber Gertner away from Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}'s commentary table at will with no repercussions.

* Around the time of ''ComicBook/CivilWar'', the {{Thunderbolts}} were {{ReTool}}ed from villains in disguise BecomingTheMask into a BoxedCrook team led by "ex-" SpiderMan nemesis ComicBook/NormanOsborn, aka the Green Goblin. They quickly gained public support for hunting down rogue heroes that wouldn't register with the government. In ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'' and throughout the ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' period, he got promoted to the head of ''all'' government superheroes. A large part of the reason he got away with this is because he positioned himself in the media as TheAtoner, and he also pointed out that [[LegacyCharacter he wasn't the only Green Goblin]]. He eventually lost his position when he had a major breakdown caught on camera, showing that he hadn't been able to put the Goblin ''that'' far behind him.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'': The Zaibatsu Corporation is a prominent and powerful crime syndicate with a private army of armed thugs and a fleet of [[CoolCar Z-Types]] that patrol the streets in droves and partake in many criminal activities, including using a radio station at one point to broadcast a signal that puts people listening to it in [[BrainwashedAndCrazy a murderous frenzy]]. Despite this, they seem to only be known by the general public as an energy company that also sells (among other things) pharmaceuticals.

If you need to take down a Villain With Good Publicity, send in a CowboyCop, KnightInSourArmor, or [[KnightTemplar anyone else]] who's [[ChaoticGood prepared to play dirty for the greater good]] - or perhaps organize an EngineeredPublicConfession to out them as a StrawHypocrite. The IdealHero and other [[LawfulGood idealistic heroes]], by contrast, have no idea how to deal with these guys. Either way, any hero attempting to take one of these guys on can end up as a HeroWithBadPublicity. A GuileHero might have some luck setting up an InvoluntaryPublicDonation to deprive the villain of assets while being unable to retaliate without compromising his good publicity.
