* In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/17626676 you said no more hurting people]]'', one of Rubber Soul's reasons for trying to kill [[Manga/StardustCrusaders Jotaro]] is so that he can share the money he would get from [=DIO=] with his daughter, Anne.

* Salem in ''Fanfic/WhiteSheep'' is still the EvilOverlord of the Grimm but she loves her husband deeply and positively dotes on her children. Yang remarks on the irony that the BigBad is a better mother than her own.

*Professor Ratigan in [[https://www.deviantart.com/discordantprincess DiscordantPrincess']] ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' fanworks is pretty much the same [[EvilGenius ruthless criminal mastermind]] he is in the movie; but his relationship with his daughter Danielle is a very sweet one, and an even more surefire way of getting yourself killed than [[BerserkButton calling him a rat]] would be [[PapaWolf harming or insulting her in any way.]]

Examples of EvenEvilHasLovedOnes in fanfiction.
----

* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' CrackFic ''FanFic/ACharmedLife'' Light and Ryuk genuinely care about each other.
* Cinder Fall in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12986165/1/A-Monster-s-Marriage A Monster's Marriage]]'' is an unrepentant monster who happily sold her soul for power but is very much in love with her husband, Jaune Arc, whom she keeps her life as a criminal far from.
* ''FanFic/AshesOfThePast'' has Giovanni; what pissed him off about the Iron Marauder's little attempt to usurp him as boss of Team Rocket via Celebi was the fact that ''he might have not met Persian'' if the Marauder succeeded. [[spoiler:Which is why, when it's all said and done, he orders his beloved Persian to give Vicious a stroke in retaliation]].
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10255230/1/Canid Canid]], an MCU fanfic, focuses largely on the relationship between Loki and his son Fenrir. It's fraught at times, but ultimately a loving relationship.
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
** Jeice and Burter show tremendous friendship for each other. On the rest of the Ginyu Force? Over [[ButtMonkey Guldo's]] death they were discussing the last time they masturbated.
** Ginyu as well. He is shaken by Burter's death, calling it a hefty loss, Recoome's is what sends him out for revenge and after Jeice's he voices genuine distress, even pleading with his foes for a brief moment of silence of mourning.
** Despite being a ruthless tyrant who has little to no hesitation in '''[[WouldHurtAChild stabbing an infant]]''', King Vegeta at least cares enough about his son Vegeta to have him taken off-planet just in case negotiations with Frieza went south.
** Though he tries to brush it off to catch Trunks off guard, [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents King Cold]], unlike the original series, is also visibly ''pissed'' when [[KidFromTheFuture Future Trunks]] [[spoiler:kills Freeza]].
** Mr. Popo actually misses Kami after he fuses with Piccolo.
** Dr. Gero modeled Android 16 after his son, who was killed [[spoiler:in Goku's attack on the Red Ribbon Base.]]
** In his own very demented way, Cell considers Androids 16, 17, and 18 his "siblings" and tries to act affably towards them, in-spite of the fact he still plans on '''[[CannibalismSuperpower devouring the latter two to increase his power]]'''. After he does so, he still tries to strike up a relationship with 16, who is understandably reluctant to bond with him:
--->'''16:''' You ate my family.\\
'''Cell: 16, I'm trying!!!'''
* In ''Fanfic/TheFallOfLordFrieza'', Frieza genuinely cares about his family, [[SiblingRivalry even Cooler]], and actually cries when King Cold is killed. He also cares enough about his race to want to wish [[spoiler: Arcos back after its destruction. The same can be said about Cooler, before he's assimilated by the Big Gete Star.]]
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5103188/1/The-Grinning-Snake The Grinning Snake]]'', was written by someone who was upset about [[spoiler:Shizuru]] being a KarmaHoudini in Anime/MaiHime, noting that all the people she killed at the First District had loved ones whom they left behind. In the fic, the daughter of one of her victims makes a contract with [[Anime/HellGirl Ai Enma]] and sends her to Hell.
* The ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8751000/1/Guardian-of-Light Guardian of Light]]'', Pitch is revealed to be [[spoiler:Helen's father]]. While his treatment of her towards the beginning leaves much to be desired, it gradually becomes apparent that he really does love her, despite everything.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7733386/21/Harry-Potter-and-the-Puppet-of-Time Harry Potter and the Puppet of Time]]'' Lucius Malfoy is an unrepentant Death Eater who arranged his own father's death (then used it to advance his political agenda), but is nonetheless deeply upset when Draco kills Barty Crouch Jr. He considers it an undeniably good thing the man is dead but would rather his son didn't have to kill, at least not so young.
* ''Fanfic/TheHeartTrilogy'' has bit of deconstruction; [[VillainProtagonist Smaug]] [[AMatchMadeInStockholm develops a complicated relationship]] with the {{Seer}} Kathryn whom he originally kidnapped as his songbird. He comes to regard her as his greatest treasure, but he's still a murderous and greedy dragon whose actions hurt the much more moral Kathryn, and the prideful dragon-dread doesn't easily comply to her wishes. By the end of the trilogy's second part, Smaug is forced to give up his plans to retake Erebor and his treasure if he wants to live with Kathryn. In the beginning of the third part, this trope is discussed, with Gandalf arguing to Galadriel that Smaug's feelings for Kathryn make him ALighterShadeOfBlack against Sauron. [[spoiler:Smaug's also happy about his and Kathryn's twins [[UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn Kolstros and Vervenia]] after they're born.]]
** The [[DoesNotLikeMen misandristic]] witch Andraya is an AbusiveMom to her [[ShrinkingViolet timid]] and [[MuggleBornOfMages normal daughter]] Freyja, but her schemes (which include goading [[HumanityEnsues Smaug]] in giving Freyja a powerful offspring) are to provide a better life for her and Freyja. [[spoiler:Freyja's [[KillTheCutie death]] by Smaug's teeth saddens and angers [[MamaBear Andraya]] into [[DealWithTheDevil handing Kathryn to Fankil]], both to [[RevengeByProxy get back at Freyja's killer]] and gain from the demon a resurrection spell so that she can get Freyja back.]]
* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' fic ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', Satan Girl is literally an embodiment of dark impulses and desires. World-scale destruction, killing sprees and rape ''turn her on''. Still, she's devastated when she finds out her child has been stolen.
-->Kara said, <Tell me about your child. How is it you know he is gone?>\\
Satan Girl hesitated. For once, Kara saw something other than hatred in her eyes. Even one such as her Hellsister could feel sorrow.
* The [[UnholyMatrimony Condesce and Grand Highblood]] in ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'' genuinely care about each other, albeit in a selfish and violent way. However, they're supposed to be [[MoralityChain moirails]], yet fuck like matesprits and make each other's violent behaviour much worse. The Grand Highblood also seems sometimes to like Gamzee despite his "unacceptable" behaviour, but expresses it by [[RapeAsDrama repeatedly raping and mutilating him]].
* This trope is played with in ''Fanfic/LostInCamelot'', as while Uther's anti-magic vendetta makes him a threat to them both, he isnít evil enough for Bo and Merlin to want to kill him, particularly not when they know that it would hurt Arthur (Bo also reflects that even the jerk Ash in the future could have had loved ones before her mother's attack left him on life support).
* Another ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic called ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8807521/1/Lullabies Lullabies]]'', by the same author as the above, has another example. Jack is surprised by the knowledge that, out of all of the Immortals, Pitch is the only one who has experience in parenting because he has a daughter.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8045114/30/A-Marauder-s-Plan A Marauder's Plan]]'' Barty Crouch Jr. reminisces about his love affair with Rabastan Lestrange and Bellatrix's offer to carry a child for the two of them.
* In ''Fanfic/MarieDSuesseAndTheMysteryNewPirateAge'', it is unclear how much Madelyn, really cared for her lover, [[spoiler:Trafalgar Law]], and she caused [[spoiler:her brother, Monkey D. Luffy]]'s execution for his sake. However, she greatly cares for [[spoiler:her husband Garreth, and her daughter Marie]], to the point at which she [[spoiler:begs Law to exact his revenge on her, rather than him. He replies that he didn't wait 20 years to settle for that, and there is a way for her to right her wrongs- but it involves changing the past so that, among other things, she never meets them]].
* In ''Fanfic/{{The Masks We Wear|AvatarTheLastAirbender}}'', both Zuko and Azula are horrified by the thought of their father dying as a result of his insisting on using lightning redirection immediately after learning it. [[spoiler:He succeeds.]]
* O'Malley from the ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' AU ''Murderer's Row'' shows a twisted, [[RapeAsDrama rapey]], interest in [[spoiler:Doc]]. On a more platonic note, he and Gary are, in flashback chapters, shown to be quite friendly with each other, and O'Malley was extremely upset when [[spoiler:Delta killed Gary for a perceived betrayal]].
* In ''Fanfic/MyHuntsmanAcademia'', [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Admiral]] is an officer in the White Fang and a Faunus supremacist who would like nothing more than to trample on and enslave humanity for their systematic oppression of the Faunus. At the same time, he loves his nephew Huey and his girlfriend Daisy and his last thoughts before being knocked out cold are [[WasItReallyWorthIt the realization that he missed Huey's college graduation and wedding]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** ''Fanfic/TheAlternateAdventuresOfThePowerPonies'': A recurring characteristic. Ahuizotl loves his cats, Mane-iac still recalls a distorted affection for Rarity, Sombra and Discord both genuinely care for their respective love interests, and Longhorn [[spoiler: has his daughter Madcow]].
** ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'':
*** In spite of everything, Queen Celestia still loved her sister. It didn't stop her from [[spoiler: [[TakenForGranite turning Luna to stone]] after she tried to side with the humans.]]
*** [[spoiler: Discord]] expresses genuine sadness at the disappearance of the [[spoiler: alicorn Faust]], whom he calls his "[[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas mother]]".
** ''Fanfic/EquestriaGirlsFriendshipSouls'':
*** Hurricane still loves his late wife Pansy; hiding it behind a though facade because he presumably doesn't want to show weakness.
*** Human Torch (an Espada) clearly loves his daughter Ember dearly.
*** Human Starlight's entire motivation is due to this, she wants to get back at Soul Society because she believes they [[spoiler: sent her friend Sunburst to Hell.]]
*** The Fourth Espada might be [[AxCrazy a few eggs short of a dozen]], but he cares for his adopted children dearly, to the point where he'll kill anyone who tries to hurt them.
** ''Fanfic/{{Equestrylvania}}'': [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Nevermore the Perverse]] created a devastating poison that [[WouldHurtAChild only affects foals.]] He was sure to create a cure as well, in case anyone else decided to use it on his own kids.
** Chrysalis in ''Fanfic/FriendshipIsMagicalGirls'' is as evil as she is in cannon, but she does love her children.
** ''Fanfic/HarmonyTheory'': Charisma, a pegasus that was literally ''born'' to be a BloodKnight and TheDragon to one of the big bads still cares about her ex-boyfriend, the unquestionably good and pacifistic Trail Blazer, even long after they had broken up.
*** She is also implied to have remorse over [[spoiler:accidentally murdering her own brother,]] when her "killer mark" first appeared and lead to her being disowned by her family.
** ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': In his own [[TheSociopath sick, twisted way]], [[TheDragon Esteem]] actually seems to care about his daughter Rarity. Likewise, [[EvilMatriarch Terra]] seems to genuinely love [[BigBad Titan]].
*** [[spoiler:Terra (and Titan too, before he [[AxCrazy snapped]]) also loved Harmony (Terra's mother and Titan's first wife) and the original Empyrean (Terra's brother/first husband and Titan's son).]]
** Despite being TheCaligula, the ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries'' version of Celestia seems to at least tolerate her sister Luna's antics.
** ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'':
*** This describes the relationship between the [[BadFuture Dark World]] versions of [[PsychopathicManchild Fluttercruel]] and [[EvilOverlord Discord]]. They both genuinely care about each other; Fluttercruel is DaddysLittleVillain all the way, and [[GodOfGood Fauna Luster]] help you if you hurt Cruel in Discord's presence. [[spoiler:When Discord is mortally wounded, Fluttercruel has a full-blown VillainousBreakdown and becomes an OmnicidalManiac to protect him.]]
*** [[spoiler:Discord also begs the Dark World!Mane Six not to hurt Screwball and Mad Tiara/Diamond Tiara, who are his nieces. He even sends the two of them away with ''specific'' orders to never try to fight the mane six for his death because they'd not stand a chance and likely die.]]
*** [[spoiler:Despite all the evil, horrible things they've done, Nightmare Paradox and her [[ThePsychoRangers Psycho Rangers]] seem to genuinely [[VillainousFriendship love each other as friends]], to the point they can still use the Elements of Harmony. Paradox has even been looking for a Nightmare Rarity because of what it'd mean to Banneret. Nightmare Banneret and Mirror also still care for Rarity and Apple Pie as well, but not enough to spare them (though its implied Mirror may have spared ''her'' Apple Pie in some way).]]
*** By the Finale Arc, [[spoiler:Diamond Tiara]] has become a Nightmare and minion of Discord. She seems to be numb to all emotion, and only serves Discord because she believes that is her only purpose. However, [[spoiler:she still cares about Silver Spoon, Tootsie, and Alula. She even became terrified for and then rescued Tootsie when Venus tried to kill her]].
*** [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Nyarlathotrot]] seems to genuinely care about his son, King Sombra. While he sees everybody else, even Discord, as an expendable pawn, he wishes Sombra all the happiness in the world when he is temporarily freed, and arranges for his needs to be met.]]
** In the ''Fanfic/PoniesOfOlympus'' series, Chrysalis seems to honestly love her daughter Aurelia.
** In ''Fanfic/PrincessTrixieSparkle'' Astelle the main antagonist of the story, has a soft spot for Princess Luna [[spoiler:[[LongLostRelative the little sister she never got to meet.]]]]
*** Also Astelle's minion/creation [[TheDragon The Shadow Alicorn]], sees her as its mother and largely participates in her schemes [[WellDoneSonGuy to make her happy]]... even if she may not see things the same way. [[spoiler:He is also revealed to be an OldFriend to Luna.]]
** Despite going through some ''serious'' AdaptationalVillainy the ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' version of [[TheIrishMob Applejack]] still seems to care about her siblings.
* ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', being a Anime/MaiHime fic, has even the [[ParodySue SUEs]], despite their lack of regard for others, possess Most Important people who will die if they lose. They range from those motivated to [[LoveMakesYouEvil do morally questionable deeds for the sake of their beloved person]], to those who have them despite not seeming like the type to care for others. The only exception is [[TheSociopath Hitomi]]. Later on, one of the First District underlings is revealed to have a wife who works at Fuuka Academy and a son who goes to school there.
* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'': [[DarkActionGirl Belladonna]] and her crew are ruthless and vengeful vigilantes, but they deeply care for each other romantically. [[spoiler:Belladonna, when she discovers Ash may be her half brother, refrains from killing him, tries to strike up a friendly conversation with him, and offers him genuine comfort when he cries over the potential death of Primeape.]]
* In ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'', [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Horus]] has a wife named Baste, and mourns her passing after the Prayer Warriors kill her, and before they cause him to suffer the same fate.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' fanfic series ''Fanfic/PrisonerOfDestiny'' and ''Fanfic/TheBigCaptureOf19992006'' by Creator/{{Shebakoby}}, [[spoiler:Megatron]], of all people. He goes full PapaWolf in part 7 of ''Fanfic/ShadowOfTheGuardian'' co-written by Conveyus-Prime.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' fic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'', Jade honestly cares about her dog Scruffy, breaks the Dog Talisman to make him immortal again, and pampers him a lot for a while. After Scruffy decides to leave her because of how evil has consumed her, she has a VillainousBSOD.
* ''Fanfic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'': Jovian and Jacqueline Kikion, Hokuto's CoDragons during the events of Acts III and IV. The author goes out of his way to establish that Jovian and Jacqueline are nothing more than {{Psychopathic Manchild}}ren who absolutely ''thrive'' on causing as much pain, destruction, and death as possible, going so far as to torture and rape those Hokuto holds hostage ForTheEvulz. That being said, they have UndyingLoyalty to Hokuto, and love each other, even if said love is [[VillainousIncest somewhat]] {{twi|ncest}}sted; in fact, in Act IV chapter 28, the minute Apoch and Astreal successfully kill Jacqueline, Jovian completely drops her FauxAffablyEvil act and starts [[BeamSpam spamming]] {{Wave Motion Gun}}s at the two in a blind rage.
* Cinder in ''Fanfic/RWBYDestinyOfRemnant'', surprisingly despite everything she has done, still cares for [[spoiler: her younger brother Ashe. She's quite uncomfortable about killing Ashe, but eventually went through with it because she couldn't disobey her master Salem, and because she has already chosen her fate.]]
* The ''Film/StarTrek2009'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9694363/1/Safe-and-Sound Safe and Sound]]'' solidifies what the [[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness second film]] established; that Khan cares about his crew. He even adopts the newly augmented Lucille Harewood and accepts her into his family.
* ''She Lives in a Daydream'' has Cell. Love doesn't redeem him at all, and he still did everything his canon counterpart did, but his love for Pippa was genuine all the same.
* In the ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Hunger Games]]'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/SomeSemblanceOfMeaning'', District One tribute Obsidian reveals in his interview that he volunteered not only because he wanted to compete in the Hunger Games but because his thirteen-year-old cousin was the male tribute who had been selected. (Then again, Obsidian isn't really ''evil'', even if he is part of the Career pack.)
* ''FanFic/TheSomewhatCrackedMindOfUchihaItachi'': Rasa is a bastard who stuck the Shukaku into his youngest child and eventually drove him insane, and even went as far as to try and hold a hospital hostage during the Invasion, but when it comes down to it, he loves all his children and is genuinely hurt when he realizes that they all (justifiably) hate him in return.
* ''[[FanFic/SonicBoomBeyondTheBlackHorizon Sonic Boom: Beyond the Black Horizon]]'': Unlike his canon counterpart (who had no bridges left to burn by the time he was sealed off), Lyric had some very close friends in the World-Wreckers. After he's accidentally freed a millennium later and gets Sonic and co. off his back, his primary concern is finding them...
* ''FanFic/SonicManiaTheNovelization'': For all his evil and craziness, Eggman ''does'' care about his niece Eggatha. When the Flying Battery crash-lands in the Press Garden Zone, Eggman's immediate concern is whether or not Eggatha managed to escape before the crash.
* Tsali from ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' deeply cared about the mercenaries he hired to aid him with exterminating the Seedrians - to the point when [[spoiler:they betrayed him to try to end the Metarex War]], he was so devastated that he suffered a slight VillainousBreakdown. Especially Talia, as [[spoiler:she was madly in love with Tsali and only reluctantly turned against him]] which is probably why [[spoiler:he gave her a MercyKill]].
* ''FanFic/ToHellAndBackArrowverse'' has several examples:
** Astra still loves [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]], and spends most of Arc II plotting to sway her niece to her side. She also genuinely loved Non, and is devastated when Kara kills him.
** Malcolm genuinely loves Tommy. And [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Oliver]], after learning that Oliver is his biological son.
* In the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfic ''Fanfic/ThoseGildedChainsWeWear'' Bellatrix genuinely cares about her family (even her sister Andromeda, who, as a Death Eater, she should hate unconditionally due to her marriage to a Muggle-born).
* In ''Fanfic/TheVow'', the plot of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' has been expanded with Lady Lianne, Lord Shen's former fiancée. Shen loved her before his banishment from Gongmen City and he still does, even if that love has been buried with hatred for the perceived betrayal in rejecting him for his crime of mass murder. While he wants to conquer China and [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe make her his queen as a form of punishment]], he does want precisely ''her'', the woman he loves. Lianne in turn wants desperately to stop Shen's plans and make him repent as she also still loves him. Eventually [[spoiler:Shen sets Lianne free, realizing that [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he'd rather have her happy than by his side on his dark road]], though Lianne finalizes their marriage out of her own will before she leaves]]. Shen is left [[VillainousBSOD in a state of deep depression due to his broken heart]], but [[spoiler:he [[SparedByTheAdaptation survives his canon ending]] because he wants to see Lianne one more time. The epilogue shows Shen and Lianne living together with their child]].
** Shen has also not been able to completely forget his love toward his parents and his former nanny Ah-Ma.
** [[TheDragon Zhan the Wolf Boss]] regards his pack [[AFatherToHisMen as his family]], making him concerned when Lianne points out that there will be casualties if they try to conquer the entire China. He also forms a warm relationship with [[NinjaMaid Jade]], the dhole spy impersonating as a maid against Shen. After she's exposed, he's [[WasItAllALie genuinely hurt]]. As she confesses that [[ItMeantSomethingToMe she did come to like him]] and tries to reason with him, he sends her out of the city instead of killing her, warning her to never return. [[spoiler:They're reunited peacefully after Shen's apparent death.]]
** The male leopard member of Haun's gang expresses his desire to free/avenge [[SiblingsInCrime his sister]] who's been captured by Shen's wolves.
* Salem in ''Fanfic/WhiteSheep'' is still the EvilOverlord of the Grimm but she loves her husband deeply and positively dotes on her children. Yang remarks on the irony that the BigBad is a better mother than her own.
* ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'': [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures Shendu]] develops a VillainousCrush on [[CuteBookworm Valerie Payne]] who happens to be the Chans' friend and his [[YinYangBomb Other]]. Though as vile and cruel as in canon, he makes sure that nothing bad happens to her, and he does at times go out of his way to make her happy, like helping in rescuing her friend Jade.
** In the sequel called ''The Stronger Evil'', Drago, the [[KidFromTheFuture future son]] of Shendu [[spoiler:and Valerie]], has [[WellDoneSonGuy a strained relationship]] with his father's present version as much as with his future version. However, [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas he doesn't seem to bear ill memories of his mother]], even restraining from hurting her present version.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' fanfic ''Fanfic/{{ResurrectedMemories}}'': Even prior to becoming half human, Ember, despite having a difficult human life, did have a strong bond with her younger sister Amy and she is the only one the ghostly girl genuinely misses from her old life.
* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'': Despite his cold and ruthless actions King Garon is shown to truly care about his children (in stark contrast to the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates original,]] where he spent most of his screen time undermining his children at every turn). He tries (awkwardly) to greet his daughter Azura the first time he's seen her since she was kidnapped, and tells Corrin that he truly sees her as his daughter before she leaves with her army for Hoshido.
* Downplayed in ''Fanfic/InfinityCrisis''. Sin admires her grandfather, but neither of them express actual affection for each other.
* Subverted in ''Fanfic/KaraOfRokyn''. ComicBook/LexLuthor loved his family in the past, but after several decades obsessed with killing Superman he has become unable to feel anything other than hatred.
* Segrif Zepar from ''Fanfic/AFakeHero'' is by all means an unlikeable, arrogant piece of shit that has no qualms when it comes to experimenting on his servants or abduct Sona and her peerage, and yet he is show to harbour genuine affection towards his sister, choosing to get power by his own means rather than kill her and secure his future when he easily could have done the latter.
* ''Fanfic/TheTouchOfGreenFire'': Shego may be an aloof super-villain, but there are people she genuinely cares for. She loves being a criminal, but she doesn't want her younger twin brothers following that path. She was also genuinely in love with her FirstLove Teryl and [[spoiler:was hurt by her betrayal]]. As the series goes on, Shego finds herself attracted to Kim in a less-than-platonic manner as well.
* ''Fanfic/BackToZero'': Giovanni is a cruel and arrogant [[TheMafia mafia boss-esque]] character who [[{{Matricide}} murdered his own mother]]. He sends his agents to murder people and has no issue raping his underlings. Despite all this, he does genuinely care for his daughter Jessie, he has a messed-up but romantically tinged relationship with Jessie's mother Miyamoto, and he keeps an eye out for his son Ash.
