[[AC: ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'']]
* ''Fanfic/AhArchfall'' has Hild, who may rule Hell but she appears to have developed a liking to Jago due to his bluff and open nature. Enough to give him her personal phone number.
** Damascus is THE original Nightmare and doesn't like anyone, to the point that she has actually threatened to EAT Noble Scarlet. However, she becomes fiercely loyal to Jago and though him Lamb, Lind and the others; willing to risk her own life to save them. Plus she likes Jammy Dodgers.

[[AC: ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'']]
* ''Roleplay/YukariIsFree'' has Nai'tyrrus/Ghostmaster, political ambassador of the [[AliensAreBastards Veluszhi Imperial Military]], and definitely the most polite of its three leaders, unlike his compatriots [[BigBad Warmaster]] and Nerdmaster. This is best exemplified during [[spoiler:his attack on Hawaii]], where he politely takes tea with and speaks courteously to Sasuke and Rei, even while [[spoiler:his ghost familiars are destroying the city, and he even fully admits that he's only keeping Sasuke and Rei around until they bore him.]]

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Ben 10}}'']]
* ''FanFic/Tech10Rebooted'' has Warlord Kroz, a fairly decent person to be around until you fight him, and even then, he mostly remains calm and collected.

[[AC: ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'']]
* In [[Fanfic/{{Downfall}} Downfall]], most of the villains are motivated by truly noble intents. Of course, any fic that has [[spoiler: Unohana, Ukitake, and Kyoraku]] working to overthrow the Seireitei...it's a given. Bonus points for making [[spoiler: Aizen, Gin, and Tousen]] the ''good'' guys. ''Realistically.'' By the time the reader's done, they want Seireitei burnt to the ground...
* Fanfic/AlabasterOrchestra:
** Bazz-B has no problem flirting with or poking fun at his enemies in the midst of battle.
** [[{{WickedCultured}} The Emperor holds a civilized discourse with Aizen.]]
** Aizen as well, reciprocating the Emperor's respect even as he politely declines the offer to join the Vandenreich in exchange for his freedom. He even politely offers condolences to the Emperor when he senses Driscoll's death.
** Mask quickly befriends Ichigo and offers him support after he joins the Empire.
** The elderly and bespectacled Stern Ritter gives Ichigo a supportive nod during his induction into the Stern Ritter.
* In ''Fanfic/AProtectorsPride'', [[spoiler:Hell]] seems to spend most of his time in combat complimenting his opponents when they impress him, such as with [[spoiler:Hachi's barriers and Yamamoto's bankai]].

[[AC: ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'']]
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2172417/1/False-Smiles False Smiles]],'' the Scoobies manage to stop Mayor Wilkins' ascension by first finding out exactly what he needs to do and when he needs to do it in order to ascend in the first place, and then stopping him from meeting all the requirements. At the end of the story, the Mayor, who is still technically invincible and immortal, actually ''congratulates'' the Scoobies on a job well done, and thanks for being such fine upstanding examples of young people taking an interest in the safety of the community. He also remarks that he'll just wait around until his next chance to turn into a gigantic man-eating snake demon. In the mean time, he tells them, he's going to concentrate on civic improvement and keeping the "bad elements" out of Sunnydale.

[[AC: CrossOver]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Baron Zemo, who is perfectly calm and polite at all times, taking the time to genuinely compliment a WorthyOpponent on their stratagem/skills, with the worst he ever gets is mildly [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]]. He's also ruthless and beyond deadly in close quarters combat as Greyback, [[spoiler: the aged up kids and later, T'Chaka and T'Challa]] found out. In the second case, he was also remotely piloting a weapon he had never used before and took down [[spoiler: what was effectively a version of Superman that traded in 25% of the strength for PsychicPowers, [[PhysicalGod Wonder Woman]], [[SuperSoldier a female Captain America]], the Flash and one of the Warriors Three]].
** Alexander Pierce fits this perfectly, being perfectly friendly towards Lucius in their meeting, later charming Harry and [[EvilDetectingDog Freki and Geri]], and promising, once Harry mentions that Nick Fury (a close friend of his mother) hasn't dropped by for a visit, or even sent a message, to arrange for one, ordering it if necessary. In other words, he acts like a kindly grandfather. He also puts Lucius on edge, since both are aware that the other will dispose of them [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness as soon as they are no longer necessary]]. [[spoiler: stealthily manipulates Harry into emotional turmoil so he can discreetly get a reading on his powers]] and doesn't even bat an eyelid when Lucius mentions that he plans to kill Harry, merely remarking that it's mildly regrettable, since he rather liked Harry.
** Lucius is a borderline example - he's capable of being perfectly polite to everyone, but this is usually flavoured by condescension and his point of view sections reveal that he only cares about himself and his family. As far as he is concerned, everyone else can go hang.
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Nyarlathotep is polite, congenial and charismatic... even when he is readying to obliterate your soul. When [[spoiler:Asuka and Touji are fighting him and even swearing at him,]] he remains non-offended and even amused.
* ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'' has [[ThoseTwoGuys Mukrezar and his Butler]]. One, a [[CrazyAwesome quirky]] GeniusDitz, with a serious [[ComedicSociopathy bloodthirsty streak]] that fails to actually compremise his charisma. The other, WickedCultured, with a BadassBeard and a [[BadassInANiceSuit classy suit]]. A literal BattleButler. Both? Awesome.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' crossover fanfiction ''Fanfic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', Gadjo, despite being an AxCrazy psychotic BloodKnight, seems to be a pretty nice guy when he's not trying to kill you.
* Continuing [[Tropers/AleineSkyfire Aleine Skyfire's]] trend (see the Sherlock Holmes listing below), Colonel Moran is made even ''more'' complicated in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'', [[AttemptedRape trying to rape]] a 17-year-old girl before he kills her and yet respecting that same girl's unconditional love for Holmes. And speaking genuinely ''normally'' with Holmes while torturing him. Yeah.
** In the same series, Professor Moriarty is FauxAffablyEvil, and yet he has his moments in which you get the feeling he just might be sincere.
** Which is taken up to ''true'' AffablyEvil with his clone in the second season. He has rather less of a vendetta against Sherlock, and is something of a fairly polite and definitely respectful StalkerWithACrush towards Beth Holmes.
* In ''FanFic/EventHorizonStormOfMagic'', The Company™ is a ruthless and amoral futuristic MegaCorp, but most of their staff are pleasant, polite, and genuinely friendly people.
* In ''FanFic/GameOfTouhou'', a lot of villains are very affable: Seiga will casually hand one of her whores to others (until she [[VillainousBreakdown breaks down]]), Yukari is soft-speaking, [[spoiler:Yuyuko]] enjoys chatting with the smallfolk.
* In ''Fanfic/RoyalHeights'', the main antagonist Embry is quite the educated and polite HotWitch with a classy wardrobe and even classier personality. She has a penchant for manors, offers tea to her visitors, and is incredibly gleeful and passionate about her plans to destroy an entire dimension.
* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', there's Magneto, in the appropriately titled Chapter 21: “Breakfast With Magneto”.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11188292/1/Deal-with-a-Devil Deal with a Devil]]'' the slaver who capture Literature/HarryPotter is openly and honestly friendly to Harry. Unlike most examples, this only serves to make him more horrific in Harry's mind; the man sells children into slavery and treats it like it's just another job. His only saving grace is that [[EvenEvilHasStandards he's clearly uncomfortable that some of them are likely to be sex slaves]]; not uncomfortable enough to stop selling children into slavery though.
* Harry and his new "friends" in ''FanFic/AceOfSpades'' can be quite polite.
* Vulpes Inculta of ''FanFic/ADeadWorld'' is soft-spoken and polite for a Legionary; you could almost forget that he would have absolutely no problem with crucifying an entire village just to make a point. Which he did.
* Ulquiorra in ''FanFic/AHollowInEquestria'' is definitely this. Despite his blunt nature he's capable of being polite to others and willing to engage in thought provoking conversations over a cup of tea. Despite being polite he has no qualms with killing whatever gets in his way. He'll even pay you a compliment before ripping your heart out of your chest in front of your friends.

* In ''FanFic/NegaverseChronicles'', the [[MirrorUniverse Negaverse]] version of [[MadScientist Gyro]] is portrayed this way. He will be perfectly polite to anyone he talks to, will show his blueprints when asked, offer gifts or a share of the profits to his fellow criminals, but he also intends to steal Scrooge [=McDuck's=] money and doesn't have a problem with the idea that his [[LivingBattery invention might]] [[PoweredByAForsakenChild kill someone]].

* [[AntiVillain Umbra]] in ''Fanfic/AndTheStoryContinues''. He's a shinigami who mostly operates on the usual BlueAndOrangeMorality of his species, and as such is very amoral, [[spoiler:[[AndThenJohnWasAZombie arguably even more so than when he used to be]] [[GoodIsNotNice L]]]]. But he's also rather friendly, cooperative and childlike, bordering on {{Adorkable}} at times. He's the only shinigami that volunteers to help Sidoh retrieve his notebook, is a FriendToAllChildren, and [[spoiler:is in love with Erin, who he's been watching for a few years prior to meeting her (again).]]

* [[spoiler: Chaos]] from the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'' isn't actually ''evil'' but still, for a ten billion year old avatar of destruction and disorder, it's remarkable just how ''normal'' he seems.

* The suave, elegant, collected Master of ''Fanfic/TheRoadToShalka'', who treats the Doctor's companion to a glass of juice and a story about how Three beat him at fencing. He also plots relentlessly and [[ThrownOutTheAirlock spaces people]], although it's not someone we'd like. He flat-out says there's just nothing for him to gain by hurting Jasmine, and that's why he doesn't.

* Several of the villains of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', including Nappa, Zarbon, and (especially) Ginyu. Cooler is a particular example, given that his brother Freeza is FauxAffablyEvil.
** Perhaps the most affably evil villain is Perfect Cell. Despite plotting to murder the entire planet, he seems to actively like Goku and is generally friendly to anyone who hasn't given him a specific reason to want dead.
* [[OriginalCharacter General Harkon]], King Cold's second in command in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886818/5/Inheritance Inheritance]]'' tries to avoid sacrificing his men and when facing the Z Fighters, offers them a position in King Cold's army, citing the good pay and benefits along with the fact they'd rise in rank quickly with their power. Even when they refuse, he doesn't take it personally, admitting that he didn't expect them to accept.

[[AC: ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'']]
* The singer (presumably Golden Freddy) in [=MandoPony=]'s song ''Just Gold''. They speak calmly and politely, referring to you as "the Main Attraction" and saying that "your story must be told", and offering you "eternal scrapyard immunity". Not quite so charming when you remember that these guys are trying to [[spoiler: STUFF YOU INTO AN ANIMATRONIC SUIT.]].
** Also applies to the singer of another song by [=MandoPony=], ''Survive the Night'' (who seems to be speaking for the animatronics). They're friendly, polite, and just want you to be happy- while warning you that they'll kill you horribly if they get the chance.

[[AC: ''Literature/GoodOmens'']]
* Zirah from the Good Omens fanfiction ''Fanfic/TheSacredAndTheProfane'' is kind, [[StepfordSmiler always smiling]], and would kill a baby just because it was crying. [[spoiler: Even if said baby is TheAntichrist.]]

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'']]
* The fic ''Fanfic/HomeIsWhereTheHauntIs'' features the OC antagonist Patrick Mason, who is very polite and formal... until he loses his temper.

[[AC: ''Literature/HarryPotter'']]
* In the musical ''Literature/HarryPotter'' parody, ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'':
** Quirrell and Voldemort sing, dance, pick up girls, and watch ''Film/ShesAllThat'' in between plotting to murder Harry. Oh, and one of Voldemort's Horcruxes is [[spoiler: a Creator/ZacEfron poster]].
** The Dementor shown returning Quirrel's civilian clothes was also [[PunchClockVillain quite nice]].
** The sequel has Lucius Malfoy and Dolores Umbridge. The former avoids ''walking'' at nearly every opportunity, preferring instead to show off with [[AwesomeButImpractical increasingly complicated ballet moves]]; Umbridge comes off as an odd mixture of Southern Baptist preacher, {{yandere}}, and drill sergeant. And she's played by [[MrFanservice gorgeous]] [[AttractiveBentGender Joe Walker]] [[note]]who played Voldemort in AVPM[[/note]].
* In ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndThePortraitOfWhatLookedLikeALargePileOfAsh'', the Death Eaters, for all the narration says that they "looked bad", behave nicest out of anyone in the story and are actually kind of adorable when interacting with one another.
-->'''Death Eater 1:''' "I think it's okay if you like me."
-->'''Death Eater 2:''' "Thank you very much."
--> ''The first Death Eater confidently leaned forward to plant a kiss on his cheek.''
-->'''Death Eater 2:''' "Oh! Well done!"

[[AC: ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'']]
* The Grand Highblood of ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'' is always very civil when LeaningOnTheFourthWall, [[{{Squick}} even while subtly threatening to rape the readers to death]].

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'']]
* In ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', Jade's personality is more or less the same even after her FaceHeelTurn, other than having fewer morals (and wanting revenge on Tohru for becoming Uncle's apprentice instead of her). For example, when she has Ozeki attack Section 13, she gives him specific orders to ''NOT'' kill anyone, and she broke the Dog Talisman to make Scruffy immortal again, for no apparent reason other than [[PetTheDog pampering her pet]]. Also, she pays the Enforcers regularly (and apparently it's a ''lot'' of money), and doesn't torture them like Shendu and Daolon Wong did, and even AFTER she gave Chow the code-name "Bonkers" for suggesting they rename one of her plans, they STILL feel that she's a better boss than Shendu (probably better than any boss they had in ''canon'' come to think about it), so much so they agree instantly on it.
** [[EvilSorcerer Monsieur Verde]] is also pretty affable. Though considering he's loosely based on [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Dr. Facilier]], that's to be expected.
** Kuro's such a nice and polite guy, you almost forget he's a demon General.

[[AC: ''Disney/TheLionKing'']]
* There are couple of examples in ''[[Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures The Lion King Adventures]]'':
** King Hapana seems very friendly on the outside. [[spoiler: Until you find out that he likes cutting animals open to find out how their biology works.]]
** Amri is very friendly towards new arrivals. But if a Pride Lander shows up, then watch out. [[spoiler: She only harbors a grudge towards the Pride Lands residents in her first story, though.]]

[[AC: ''Anime/MaiHime'']]
* In ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', [[spoiler:Meiko Moriya]] might be pretending to be Mai's friend but remains relatively courteous and polite to her after [[spoiler:Mai blows her and Bachiko's cover by realizing that they weren't friends]]. She even apologizes for being relatively familiar with someone she's just met, and goes from calling her "[[FirstNameBasis Mai]]" to calling her the more polite and formal "[[LastNameBasis Tokiha]]-[[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics san]]".

[[AC: ''Franchise/MassEffect'']]
* In {{Fanfic/Uplifted}} most of the high ranking Nazis act like this.

[[AC: ''Film/TheMatrix'']]
* ''Fanfic/BringingMeToLife'': The albino twins who in their appearances are rather polite, as well as the twin who waves at Max after trying to shoot him and Trinity.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'']]
* Fanfic/LePapillonRising has Adrien as Papillon... but also as Adrien. He's not easy to hate.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'']]
* ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' has, naturally, canon FriendToAllLivingThings Fluttershy, who still keeps most of what makes her adorable in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the actual series]], even trying to talk Rarity out of donating her sister's college fund to the local ReligionOfEvil, finally giving in at Rarity's insistence. [[spoiler:And accepting the money; who do you think is cult leader?]]
* Distraught from [[Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic My Brave Pony: The Movie]] has no problem holding parties and serving ice cream to the very same ponies that he plans on destroying.
* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' has second BigBad [[WellIntentionedExtremist Princess Gaia]][[spoiler:/[[SuperpoweredEvilSide Nightmare Whisper]]]], who is unwaveringly polite to the Mane Cast (including [[SixthRanger Trixie]]), even when they're [[ApologeticAttacker fighting]]. [[spoiler: Which is to be expected -- she ''is'' still Fluttershy, after all.]]
** In [[BadFuture Dark World]], Rancor, Discord's little sister, is a FriendlyEnemy towards the mane cast despite the fact she's one of Discord's CoDragons and a BloodKnight who is looking forward to her turn to fight them. She does things such as asking Rarity for her autograph (she's a fan of [[spoiler:Rarity's past life, Melody]]), commending them on their fights, and even [[spoiler:giving Apple Pie the last pages of a comic the Valeyard used in a BreakTheCutie on her, revealing it was a BittersweetEnding and not a DownerEnding]] for seemingly no other reason than to PetTheDog. And while she ''is'' vicious when she actually fights them, she spends the majority of the fight talking to them politely. [[VillainousCrush And hitting on Spike]]. Justified as she's a PunchClockVillain who has no actual grudge towards them and is only doing this because her Father told her to.
* In the ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'' series, we have [[spoiler: (yet again) Fluttershy! It seems that every time Fluttershy is portrayed as a villain she's depicted as this, although that's hardly surprising when you consider how she is in canon]]. To drive the point home, [[spoiler: she never even swears (whereas the others are shown to all [[SirSwearsALot curse like drunken sailors]]) not even after she snaps and becomes a chainsaw wielding psycho]]!
* In ''Fanfic/CrisisEquestria'', Lord Silvertongue is extremely polite and formal with all of his employees... so long as they're on his good side. He doesn't tolerate [[YouHaveFailedMe failure]] very much, though, and has a habit of [[BadBoss brutally punishing those who fail]]. The lesson of the day: do a good job!
* [[TheDon The Dogfather]] from ''FanFic/DiariesOfAMadman'' prefers to be polite and well-mannered with those he encounters, despite his status as a crime lord.
* ''Fanfic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'' has both Lord Silverblood and Sombra, though the former [[FauxAffablyEvil loses it when Nova pushes his buttons]].
* [[TheDragon Princess Dinky]] from ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'' is well liked by her followers for always being pleasant and even chatting with them from time to time, despite "[[HiddenDepths the nasty rumors surrounding her]]".
* Fluttershy, ''again'', plays this role in ''[[FanFic/FaithAndDoubt The Abundance]]''. As one of the "Five Queens Of Harmony", she will spread true harmony all over Equestria...by brainwashing ponies into being obedient and kind, and she tries to be the most reasonable one of them all. Trixie, however, deconstructs this; Fluttershy is completely delusional and the only reason she is kind is because she doesn't want to engage in the horrible acts of the other Queens, she just sits back and watches. To Trixie, that makes her the worst one.
* Played for laughs, in the short FanFic series ''FanFic/EvilBelle''. Sweetie tries to sell her soul to a demon for a new demonic form, only for said demon to turn out to be a really mellow guy. Who is not even interested in her offer, and tries to explain that neither of them, really have much to gain from this. Only for Sweetie to keep pestering him, until he reluctantly agrees.
* The human Chrysalis in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/309780/integration Integration]]'', the sequel to ''AftermathOfTheGames''. When the fourth guy who [[spoiler: attempted to kidnap Human Twilight]] runs and leaves his fellow Changelings behind to be captured by the police, Chrysalis doesn't punish him for aborting the mission. After [[spoiler: Adiago escapes]], she gives the two guards who were overpowered the next two days off while warning them about not failing her again. While she does blame the door guard for [[spoiler: not properly checking the I.D.]], she gives him the opportunity to make up for his mistake by [[spoiler: recapturing the siren]], but she threatens that he'll kill him and his family if he tries to run.
* From her appearances in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/347000/hecates-orphanage Hecate's Orphanage]]'' of the ''FanFic/BloomingMoonChronicles'', Melinda the Sky Witch could be seen as this. She even offers advice to characters like Moonflower and Thorn Blackfeather. However, she does still remain an antagonist, and many of her actions do hinder Cadence and her team.

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'']]
* In ''Fanfic/AGrowingAffection'' Doraku explains to a captured Naruto, Hinata, Sakura and Lee that A) He is a demon. B)He enslaves people and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent steals people's abilities by drinking their blood]] C) He isn't a vampire D) Would they mind telling him about the world's current situation over dinner?
** It should be noted he told them to try to escape over dinner too.
* In ''Fanfic/GenderConfusion'', it's difficult to distinguish who the bad guys really are until one of them actually goes out and commits a canon atrocity... and then you still need to remind yourself that, yes, they were the ones in the wrong.

[[AC: ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'']]
* Elias Dreschner from ''Fanfic/{{Kintsukuroi}}'' is always polite with his secretary, appreciates fine tea and likes to listen to classical music while performing horrifying experiments on captured mutants. Before doing this, however, he makes a point of introducing himself to them and [[WellIntentionedExtremist explaining why their sacrifice is necessary]] to further [[CureForCancer medical research]].

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'']]
* In ''Fanfic/{{Ancienverse}}'', Dalton tends to treat Ash and Seamus quite kindly when he's not trying to kill them.
* ''FanFic/BraveNewWorld'':
** Admittedly, while Tarantulas may seem like a total psycho, he does have the occasional gentlemanly side with the patients he's horribly mutilated. It's mostly based on his mood.
** [[BigBad Oblivion's Shadow]] also has shades of this. He's fairly notable as being the most polite, well-mannered and reserved person in the entire series. He's fairly comparable to Deoxys from Latias' Journey, except [[spoiler: that he has shades of being a WellIntentionedExtremist.]]
** Barbedo is unusually for this trope not an antagonist; he was the most vicious and monstrous pirate to ever live, and he got worse after he and his crew were [[CursedWithAwesome cursed with immortality]]. To everybody's surprise, Barbedo's friendly enough to Team Aurabolt when they meet him, [[spoiler: handing over the Star Badge animating him without any fuss, agrees to a fight for his ship and takes his defeat to Tiny in a drinking contest with good humor.]] He's unapologetically brutal and loves being the worst sort of pirate, but his friendly demeanor and fondness for his [[TrueCompanions crewmates]] make him likable in spite of that.
** [[spoiler: If you can get past the fact that Ford is a sinister creature who has taken fighters and been draining their powers over the course of years]], he's really nice and charming.

[[AC: ''Franchise/PowerRangers'']]
* Drake, leader of the Ouroboros Society from ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX'' [=SIU=]. Very polite and praises the Rangers, calling them a WorthyOpponent, but is still up to something...

[[AC: ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'']]
* Proctor of ''FanFic/BoyScoutsOneHalf'' is genuinely kind and friendly, but because he is Justy's loyal servant, he always ends up on the opposing side of the main characters.

[[AC: ''Manga/SailorMoon'']]
* Queen Beryl is this in ''Fanfic/BeautifulDestroyerSailorMoon''. The first time we see her, she's messing with a tablet PC dressed like it's Casual Friday at the office, talking about running the Dark Kingdom like it's a business conglomerate. She's not even very disagreeable about how Jadeite's operation in Japan has been royally screwed over so much. Immediately after her meeting with Jadeite she remembers she hasn't had sex in forever, then decides to go out for the night and get laid after prodding her Youma court for a bit of encouragement.

[[AC: ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'']]
* [[TheDragon Sebastian Moran]] is portrayed this way in [[http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/14213.html?thread=80649605 this]] ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' fanfic. When he isn't acting as Moriarty's hired gun, Moran's a friendly guy who's nice to little old ladies and likes dogs.

[[AC: ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'']]
* Speaking of [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Colonel Sebastian Moran]]...
** Presented as FauxAffablyEvil in ''Fanfic/TheGhostMap'' and ''Fanfic/AStudyInRegret'', in both cases as he's speaking with/gloating over [[DistressedDude Holmes]].
** Given more screentime and made a bit more complicated in ''[[Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries Mortality]]''. He's a VillainWithGoodPublicity [[EvenEvilHasStandards as well as Standards]] ([[RefugeInAudacity and can even]] [[GentlemanSnarker snark at]] [[BigBad his boss, Professor Moriarty]].

[[AC: ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'']]
* A few are present in ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones''
** Samuel Harrington is by far the most honourable of the Solvers. Though he is a no-nonsense sellsword who WouldHurtAChild without hesitating, he only reacts in such a way when provoked and later reveals himself to have plenty of sympathetic traits, from his tragic backstory, to his surprisingly firm sense of honour. [[spoiler:His eventual HeelFaceTurn is a logical consequence to this.]]
** The Burned Man is affable to such a degree that it is debatable if he even qualifies as evil at all. Of course, he still is an unrepentant criminal, although his methods are noted to be fairly reasonable and his ultimate goal is considered noble by many characters.

[[AC: ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'']]
* [[spoiler: Dimentio]] in ''FanFic/ClashOfTheElements''

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'']]
* ''FanFic/JewelOfDarkness'': [[PsychoForHire Guerra]] is a pretty friendly person when he's not hired to fight you, and he tends to be rather polite, complimenting people he views as putting up a good fight.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'']]
* For all their virtues, the protagonists of ''FanFic/CentreOfAttention'' are a criminal gang. Played straightest with Gwen, who quits committing crimes once she has the money to attend art college.

[[AC: ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'''s lower-ranking Volturi are all like this. The worst is Jane, who is best defined as amoral--if she hits you with her power, then she looks at you funny if you scream.
* In [[FanFic/{{TheNotSoShortSecondLifeOfBreeTanner}} The (Not So) Short Second Life of Bree Tanner]] and its companion piece, ''Ashes through an Hourglass'', Alec from the Volturi comes across as charming, insightful, and sympathetic, without betraying his more villainous tendencies like manipulating Bree, showing a general indifference to human life, and casually ploting and rationalizing murder.
** The larger portion of reader reviews consider Alec not just amusing and appealing but actually ''persuasive'' in his outlook on being a vampire, which is almost always in stark contrast to the noble ideals and humane lifestyle of the Cullen family.

[[AC: ''Literature/{{Worm}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/ATaleOfTransmigration'': Rune, despite being a Nazi, is a frequent poster on PHO who enjoys taking selfies and posting them for people to see.

[[AC: Other]]
* Kyrio Streika, from New Dawn. He is always polite, always serene, never once raises his voice or even curses. He is always friendly and even helpful to Matthew and company, which makes sense, given Matthew is his son. He is a devoted family man, despite having [[FakingTheDead difficulties]] that he came across during his [[ProfessionalKiller occupation of choice.]] He also happens to be rather like Sousuke Aizen in several ways, including being very disturbingly violent in contrast to his eloquent words and actions, and having plans within plans, effortlessly manipulating most everyone he comes across and killing the rest, [[KnightTemplarParent all for the good of his dear son]].
* ''FanFic/GravityFallsRule63'': Bonnie Gleeful. She's a very sweet lady, even when she's killing you with her own two hands.
* [[spoiler:Nicole]] from ''Webcomic/GhostsOfTheFuture'' is an utterly ruthless and callous [[AIIsACrapshoot AI]] who destroyed most of Earth’s heroes long ago and performs warped experiments for amusement. She’s also quite friendly and cheerful, acting unfailingly polite to people regardless of whether they’re friend or foe. Even a brutal BreakingSpeech she gives Sonic is said in a casual, happy manner, as if she genuinely doesn’t understand how it could be considered hurtful.
