** Archer himself, if you consider him evil-pretty much any time he's actually in a fight, he's {{Badass}} incarnate. Like in "Swiss Miss", where he kills all of the terrorists chasing him on snowmobiles without much effort, only acquiring a gun halfway through the chase, or his maneuver at the beginning of "Job Offer", or almost everything he does in "Skorpio".

** And then Season 7 happens; [[Archer spends the entire season chasing after Veronica Deane, eventually driving Lana to declare them "on a break" by the end of the season. Time will tell how Archer's apparent death at the end of the season affects their relationship.]]

* UnintentionallySympathetic: In the Season 6 premiere, Archer is supposed to be seen as the bad guy for [[spoiler: heading to Thailand to escape being a parent.]] While it is wholly irresponsible of him, [[spoiler:Lana did steal Archer's sperm to make a baby, and didn't even tell him until after the baby was born]].

** Because the show in general devotes a lot of time to Archer's traumatic childhood, his odd PetTheDog moments, and drops heavy hints that he suffers from some un-diagnosed mental problems (which could range from depression to autism), Archer in general comes off as way more sympathetic than he probably should be in a lot of scenarios. No matter how much of an asshole he is, it's pretty hard to outright hate him since you understand ''why'' he acts the way he does, and the show displays that he's ultimately a good guy once you get deep down enough. In-universe, people who hear about Sterling's issues will remark "that explains a lot."



*** And adding to that, there was never really any good FreudianExcuse for Lana's behaviour, which straight up dives into BitchInSheepsClothing JerkAss territory.

Compare this to Archer whose FreudianExcuse is covered throroughly and tends to come off as UnintentionallySympathetic due to understanding just ''why'' he acts like a jackass.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Malory's entire character. She's openly abusive to her son [[spoiler: and granddaughter]], she had an affair with the head of the KGB, drinks like a fish, had a ''very'' [[BestialityIsDepraved inappropriate relationship with her dog,]] and uses ISIS as her own personal servants. Oh, [[HypocriticalHumor and she chews Sterling out for doing the exact same things that she does.]]
