Pet The Dog: Web Original
  • In Survival of the Fittest, Dorian, one of the terrorists behind the Act, has been shown to send most of the money he earns from working in the organisation behind SOTF to his mother. It helps that he's well... pathetic too.
  • "You hear that, world? I love my pink, freakish, orb-shaped son!"
  • Even though he's more Jerkass Woobie than bad guy, The Nostalgia Critic paused in his rampaging through an anime convention dressed as a Ghostbuster and trying to destroy Casper the Friendly Ghost (It Makes Sense in Context ...somehow.) to tell a little girl that she was adorable. The fact that it was ad-libbed makes it even sweeter.
    • Even when playing The Caligula in Kickassia, the Critic is upset enough at having accidentally shot Santa Christ that he rallies everyone involved with That Guy with the Glasses (even those who weren't otherwise involved with the filming) to attempt to revive him with the power of faith. It doesn't work and he ends up tossing Santa Christ in a dumpster.
    • In Suburban Knights, after spending the entire event tricking and manipulating the reviewers of his site, all while he himself refuses to play along and act in character and generally is a selfish bastard, the Critic is genuinely worried about Team 2 after he figures out that the map he got in a chain letter was sent by Malachite, and that Team 2 had no way of knowing that there was an Evil Luddite tracking them down. Immediately after, he and the rest of Team 1 band together to take down the next obstacle, so that they can quickly find Team 2 and warn them. (Given how the reviewers in general had their turns as jerks, this would count for them all in general)
      • Likewise despite everyone despising Mati and constantly sending him off on Snipe Hunt s to keep him out of their way, once he suddenly shows up while Malachite (a dark wizard who was beating all up them up rather badly) is there and starts yelling at him because he's frustrated with everyone else they all show serious concern for his well being and try to warn him to leave, instead of simply allowing Malachite to kill him without protest (which would get him out of their hair forever)
  • In There Will Be Brawl, Wario, the series' resident sneaky and manipulative bastard, is revealed to also be taking care of his mentally-handicapped brother, Waluigi.
    • Then blows all the acquired sympathy by using him to deliver a bomb to Red.
    • There's also a subversion when he apologizes to Red's girlfriend for causing Red's death, offering her money to make amends. As he walks towards her, the audience can see him holding a Home Run bat behind his back. Fortunately, Leaf is not fooled and kills him with Jigglypuff.
  • The Slender Man may be a Humanoid Abomination with terrifying powers and inscrutable motives, but he still supports the Haiti relief effort.
  • Despite all her abuse, The Nostalgia Chick's shown affection towards Nella on occasion. The end of her Ever After and My Little Pony reviews give the impression that she knows how ridiculously adorable Nella can be and loves it like the rest of us.
  • From the Global Guardians PBEM Universe, Diabolical Mastermind Lord Doom was one of the primary researchers behind the AIDS cure. He provided the cure to the world not for any underhanded ulterior motive, but because the AIDS epidemic was killing innocent people and he wouldn't stand for that. He also gives tens of millions of dollars to charities every year.
  • SCP-682: Terrifying Nigh Invulnerable reptilian monster that tries to kill everything it comes into contact with because they're "disgusting"... except for SCP-053. Not only did it not kill her, it let her draw on its carapace with crayons and gave her a pony ride.
  • In Shadowhunter Peril, Oblivion the single most powerful being in the entire story, and who can turn into something that resembles a near-Eldritch Abomination-type creature, enjoys murdering helpless civilians for fun, then stabs the entire resistance in the back by a attempting to kill Puriel and joins the enemy because he was bored of not being able to fight anybody. Word of God states that he has an unwaveringly fierce love for kittens.
  • In Katawa Shoujo
    • Kenji, a paranoid misogynist conspiracy theorist, makes unsavory remarks about the girls, steals books from the library and borrows money without paying it back. However, on Lilly's route, when he accidentally runs into her, he offers to help her up, and when Hisao finds out that Lilly is leaving for Scotland, he offers to talk with him if he needs it. In Shizune's route, after Hisao gets a "Dear John" Letter from Iwanako, he fondly talks about his old girlfriend.
    • Shizune, as Student Council President, has a reputation around Yamaku as incredibly bossy, and as a result, everyone besides her best friend and interpreter, Misha, left the council. However, in Hanako's route, she helps Hisao take Hanako to the nurse's office when she suffers a panic attack, and it's implied that she likes and is concerned about Hanako, but can't get close to her because Hanako's best friend is Lilly, who is in a feud with Shizune. In Lilly's route, Shizune manages to reconcile with Lilly. In Shizune's own route, she reveals that all of her actions, starting with her attempts to recruit Hisao to the student council, were done so that he would snap out of his depression. She also states that making people happy and engaged is her goal, and she hopes to become a philanthropist.
  • YouTuber RepoNut, a repo man who posts videos of his repossessions, brings his dog on some repos and literally pets her at times.
  • Ultra Fast Pony. In "The Penny and Clyde Show", Discord confronts Fluttershy, alone in the maze. Flutters is terrified, and asks to just be left alone... and Discord immediately obliges.
