What's the difference between this and Well-Intentioned Extremist? The former's page emphasizes the villian's good intentions, which is the defining trait of the latter.

Just a thought... Maybe We could adjust the page image to give a little more context? the current shot comes from this episode of Batman: The Animated Series. A series of images showing Fries in his cell, Fries with the snowglobe, and Fries crying might work out better than just Fries staring at the snowglobe. It all starts around the 21:30 mark.

An Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain can be, and in fact, usually is an antivillain.

What's the difference between this an Tragic Villain?

A tragic villain is merely a villain that is sympathetic while an Antivillain is not actually a villain nor a hero, but really something gray

A Tragic Villain is a subset of the Anti-Villain. An Anti-Villain is a villain who, while fulfilling a villainous role, posesses non-villainous traits that allow the audience to sympathize with them. A Tragic Villain has this specifically because they did not choose to be evil.

Is there any chance we can get rid of that ridiculous block of spoilers for Mass Effect? Between Anderson's backstory and the fact of Sovereign's ultimate nature, Saren just doesn't qualify for this trope. Either he's a bastard or a puppet, but either way, he's not really an anti-villain.
