Draco in Leather Pants: Kinda-sorta. The villains are still kept their personalities, but circumstances are helping them lighten up. The only true cases here are Meta-Ridley, Azazel, and the Decepticons. Then again, as shown by the tropes highlighting them, even they have their reasons for being nicer and even THEN they have their negative quirks.
