I disagree with using Butters as an example. He wasn't a villain as they were playing a game, and the game was only used as a way for a plot about the snowballing abuse of Butters.

I don't quite agree with the current image for this page. It doesn't explain or illustrate the trope at all. I would start an image picking discussion for it but I don't have anything to propose.

I know it says in the main page that you would do well not to draw out the sequence too long, lest the villain become too sympathetic and the audience starts feeling sorry for him, but what if inciting audience sympathy was the Intended Audience Reaction? What if you wanted the viewers to end up seeing the villain as The Woobie (albeit a Jerkass Woobie) to set up for a Heel–Face Turn?

Agreed, how would one start a image picking discussion for it?

How about this one of Max Schreck? http://mybestfriendskull.tumblr.com/post/3252170911/christopher-walken-as-max-schreck-batman-returns We could have a snarky caption like "Having a tough week, Max?"
