Removed Robin in Teen Titans, who isn't an antagonist.

Gerard from The Fugitive is not an example because he's pursuing an innocent -the trope requires actual guilt from the chased "He also does not chase Wrongly Accused criminals"- and he doesn't care about it at first. He's an expy of the actual Inspector Javert from The Miserables, just a very sympathethic one with major Character Development.

Removed for the second time (I made the same mistake some time ago, the name is a bit misleading, this kind of Inspector chases a real criminal, the description from Inspector Javert complements both)

For reference: Renamed from Inspector Zenigata. See this thread. The trope was previously named The Zenigata (see archived discussion).

The single-prop crowner closed at 15:4 to rename Inspector Zenigata on December 20th, 2011. The alt-titles crowner chose Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist on the 26th with a vote of 11:3. The TRS thread also contained discussions of renaming Inspector Javert, Inspector Lestrade, and Commissioner Gordon, but no action was taken in that thread.

I prefer Tropes being named after archetypical character rather then these lame generic descriptions.

Ganimard would be better then Zenigata though.
