I cannot add a YKTTW from my tablet for whatever reason, and I need to know if we have this one; "Just needed to hear Sorry." A villain (or Woobie destroyer of worlds or what have you) who is out for revenge is about to kill he trembling hero, when the hero apologizes for what they did; the villain stops immediately, forgives the hero, and leaves.

You can ask on the Trope Finder.

Before I propose a new trope (a YMMV one specifically), is there already something along the lines of "What Do Mean so and so Is Not Emo?" (misinterpreting a character as being emo due to him or her being introspective and/or brooding but lacking any canonical evidence that their personalities are as such)? (e.g. Clare from Claymore, K' from King of Fighters, and Shadow the Hedgehog to name a few random examples of characters misinterpreted as emo despite there being little to no canonical evidence or word of God statements that their personalities are as such).

Female shapeshifter

The "loathly lady" is featured as a trope but not explained well. She is not merely a hag lusting for a good-looking young guy. Her defining feature is that she shape-shifts between loathsome hag and beautiful lady, sometimes voluntarily but sometimes because she's been cursed. I need a good definition and discussion of this trope. It's coming up a lot recently, and I'm surprised it's not here.
