Should we add a No Real Life Examples, Please! to this page? It seems like the kind of thing where you're just asking for trouble.

Wouldn't Richard Hawk from the video game Metal Wolf Chaos qualify for this? I haven't played the game myself, but from what I know, Richard had more PR with the American people than the President himself!

Removed the following:
- The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera. Despite the fact that he's a murderous, insane stalker, Erik has all the fangirls, and poor Raoul has none.
- Fire Lord Ozai (as well as his father and grandfather) is regarded as a benevolent protector by the people of the Fire Nation. Azula and Zuko also recieve praise and are regarded as heroes after the conquest of Ba Sing Se, with Zuko even having cheering people outisde of his palace gates every day. Of course, this makes sense with them as leaders of their people in war. We also see how the rest of the world hates and fears them which Zuko points out when he is calling out his father on how their propaganda has made it seem like the war is for the benefit of the world.
- Ladybugs. Oh yes, everyone loves ladybugs. Their charming red color and spotted pattern has even propelled it to the status of a good luck charm. But as gardeners will tell you, ladybugs will eat through your plants like nobody's business. In fact, the true unsung hero of the insect world is the spider, who will gladly eat these charming red menaces for you and spare your prize flowers from harm.
- Uh, no? The vast majority of ladybird species (including the familiar red spotted varieties) eat aphids, which do eat through your plants like nobody's business. Ladybirds are voracious predators that wantonly slaughter poor defenceless herbivorous creatures. But farmers and gardeners adore them for their defending of their precious plants.

I think the part about Ferenc Gyurcsány is oversimplified to the point where it makes no sense to anyone who doesn't know what it's about; also, the events being referred to are recent enough for it not to be evident (except to, you know, fundamentalists, of which Hungary has its share) whether he was a "villain" or not. He also didn't have extraordinarily good publicity even when he was at the height of his popularity (which wasn't such a great height either). So, all in all, I don't think he belongs here, but didn't just want to edit him away.
