If Skyler White of Breaking Bad is even an antagonist at all (which is debatable, especially given that Walt claims to be doing everything he does for his family), she's surely a Hero Antagonist. When she tries to dig into Walt's criminal double life, it's only because he's leading a criminal double life.

So if she's not presented as a "villain", and she's not a villain, the fact that a lot of fans hate her doesn't seem like enough to land her on a trope about villains.

This is very similar to (and has a lot of overlap with) Protagonist-Centered Morality.

Protagonist-Centered Morality is when the work strongly emphasizes the morality of the protagonists, even if their actions don't line up.

This is when the villain is a jerk, but doesn't do that much wrong.

Neither has any relation to the other.

Removed that bit about Candace from Phineas and Ferb. As mentioned there, she is a sympathetic character herself.

Alright, that's better.
