* ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'': Before [[KlingonPromotion murdering]] [[spoiler:his father]] and using his supposed last words as a reason to change his stance on the subject Touka Bergatt presented himself as the more calm rational member of the family who did not take any umbrage with the Royal family taking most of the family's lands from them due to their abuse of their subjects. He managed to keep his old allies with his clever emotional manipulation due to the "tragic" death while gaining his old opponents in a plot he'd been working on from a young age as he is furious his rightful "possessions" (both the land and the people) were taken from him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'': As in the original film, Gaston is a narcissistic, sexist prick and makes no effort to hide it, but everyone in Villenevue loves and worships him regardless. It's somewhat more justified here, since this version of Gaston is a war hero.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has Willy Tybur, a charismatic noble who seems to be popular amongst politicians and diplomats from all over. He's [[spoiler:is the true leader of the Kingdom of Marley and plans on wiping out every Eldian on the planet by making the rest of the world unite together and declare war on Paradis Island, the Eldia Empire's last stronghold]]. Of course, given that the series falls under GreyAndGreyMorality and YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters, his status as a villain is subjective.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': [[RabidCop Kureo Mado]] was absolutely AxCrazy when fighting [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier Ghouls]] and delighted in [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing them to death]], but despite all this, his colleagues greatly admired him and his work (even if they watched how he fought).

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': As revealed in Volume 4, while the rest of Remnant is well aware that the [[WesternTerrorists White Fang]] is evil, Blake's hometown of Menagerie [[LockedOutOfTheLoop does not]] and believe them to still be a mostly peaceful organization; most of them don't even know that the White Fang chapter led by Adam Taurus played an instrumental part in [[spoiler:the invasion of Vale and the destruction of Beacon Academy during the final episodes of Volume 3]]. Two representatives of another White Fang leader, Sienna Khan, are able to avoid suspicion once Blake's parents find out about Adam's actions from her by claiming that the White Fang group led by Adam is actually a rogue splinter faction and they're trying to track him down and apprehend him; in reality, they work with Adam and can contact him at any time.

** In Volume 5, it's revealed that Adam himself Sienna is seen as a popular symbol amongst the White Fang. Despite the fact that Adam is shown to be cavelier over the loss of Faunus lives in pursuit of Salem's plans, the Vale faction of the White Fang follow him loyally. Adam confirms to Sienna Khan that his Vale followers, and several in Mistral as well, see him as the ''true'' High Leader of the White Fang, not Sienna. [[spoiler:Indeed, Sienna's own personal bodyguards turn on her and do nothing when Adam kills her.]]

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'':
** As per canon, Giovanni is this. To the outside world, he's just the benevolent, if somewhat demanding, leader of the Viridian Gym. A sidestory reveals that the Pokémon G-Men are aware he's the leader of Team Rocket, but have been unable to find decisive evidence to expose him.

Laurel actually realizes he's a villain fairly early on, but can't [[CassandraTruth get anyone to believe her]], in part due to her descent into addiction. [[spoiler:Blood then discredits her so thoroughly even she thinks she was wrong.]]
