Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })"Aw, look, he likes you!"
A subtler version of Pet the Dog, where an innocent creature like an animal or child shows affection towards someone commonly thought to be mean or a hardass, or who at least has a Face of a Thug. Said hardass doesn't always appreciate the attention.
Effective at deflating a character's pompous attitude. An ironic but overused trope is the character hating a certain kind of animal, then finding one who can't take the hint.
Sometimes this is introduced later in the plot as a Morality Pet. Compare Evil-Detecting Dog and Friend to All Living Things. Contrast Animals Hate Him. See Photo Op with the Dog, where someone tries to invoke this trope via a picture.

T'Pol on Star Trek: Enterprise. Porthos climbs up to be petted, sorta taking the wind out of her Vulcan superiority moment.
Proving it's not because Spock is half human that the tribbles liked him. "Its trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system! Fortunately, I am...immune to its effect...." Cue everybody looking up as he trails off, stroking it. Once he realizes what he's doing, he puts it down and walks off with what's left of his emotionless Vulcan pride.

The title character of House has a tendency to get licked by the dog:
When House gets temporary custody of Wilson's dog Hector, Hector seems to like him quite a bit — by the end, Hector's walking with a limp, apparently because House trained him to. Apparently is the key word here: he slammed a door on his leg by accident (initially he wanted the dog to run away and get hit by a car). After an incident where Hector ate a bottle of his Vicodin, House decided he liked him. By the end of the episode, both are shown to have bonded over their mutual addiction.
House is hugged by the Littlest Cancer Patient at the end of "Autopsy." Notably, House subverts this slightly by refusing to hug her back and looking extremely uncomfortable.
In "Lines in the Sand" the autistic kid gives him his PSP. Given how....defensive some low-functioning autistic get with things, that is as Licked by the Dog as it gets.
In "Fetal Position" he was doing an operation on a pregnant woman's tummy when the baby got his hand out and grabbed House's finger. Following that, he stopped referring to it as a fetus, and started calling it a baby. The baby's mother even names her son after House. Damn, he sure is prone to this trope!

Phobia in a recent GastroPhobia storyline gets a literal Licked by the Dog moment-the dog in question is Gastro's birthday present and Phobia's surly attitude is because instead of the big hunting breed she'd intended to get, the only puppy left was a tiny Pomeranian-looking thing.

The Simpsons:
In the episode entitled "Dog of Death," Homer comes across as uncharacteristically heartless when he refuses to pay for a life-saving operation for the family dog (not wanting to give up his beer money). But after the dog adorably licks his hand, Homer groans and grudgingly agrees to the operation.
The end of "Simpsons Roasting On an Open Fire," where Homer loses at the dog track after betting on Santa's Little Helper. The dog is chased off by his angry owner and jumps into Homer's arms.
In "Moe Baby Blues," Moe accidentally saves Maggie from falling into the river while attempting suicide. He's baffled at first, even when the town starts cheering for him, but when Maggie gives him a kiss, his face breaks into the sweetest smile.

On Eureka, Taggart has a long running self-declared rivalry with Lowjack, a dog with a stated IQ over 100. There is an episode where he gets injured, and Taggart, being the best veterinarian in Eureka, is asked to treat him. As soon as he is alone with Lowjack, he starts going on about how he has the dog right where he wants him. Lowjack raises his head and licks Taggart's face. Taggart's response, "Alright, truce."

The Long Long Holiday: when Otto rushes to the Marteau farm to warn them about the other German soldiers, their dog, Fourteen, looks up briefly but then lies back down. More of a symbolic example, since Otto has been living there for years at this point, but the way it's shot seems deliberate. In contrast, Fourteen barks like usual when Hans shows up, and gets shot for it.

Though Commodore Sir Aivars Terekhov, like most of the Honorverse, is hardly evil, he is notoriously ruthless in the service of his star nation. Which makes it absolutely hilarious when Dicey the Maine Coon cat jumps on his lap and orders the human to pet him — an order to which the human in question instantly capitulates. Michelle Henke finds the sight quite amusing.

Justified in The Dresden Files: Harry Dresden has a chequered past and a few anti-heroic deeds to his name that make the White Council of Wizards extremely leery of him, including sheltering a dangerous fugitive in Turn Coat, so the Senior Councilor Ancient Mai is absolutely gobsmacked to see that he has the loyalty and guardianship of a celestial Temple Dog.

Granny Weatherwax, probably one of the oldest and most powerful witches in the Discworld, feared and respected by many ancient and warlike species, who has seen off a succession of Big Bads and should she turn evil would probably be bigger and badder than all of them put together, was given a cute little kitten in Wintersmith. She appeared to be rather offended by this and pretended to ignore the creature, but even the woman who once performed chiropractry on Death himself couldn't resist a friendly fluffy snuggly purry thing which liked her so much. (She wouldn't be able to harm a kitten or child anyway. She's nasty, but never evil.)
Arguably something of a subversion, since there's some pretty strong hints (like You utterly traumatizing Greebo, the death that walks like a cat... and yes, the kitten's name is 'You'. As in, 'Hey You') that Granny and the kitten are kindred spirits; there is, after all, very little chance that Granny Weatherwax could tolerate a stupid animal. You, like her mistress, happens to other people.

In Jak II: Renegade the crocadog doesn't like anyone except the kid (its owner) and our newly badass hero. Jak doesn't seem to mind. This makes perfect sense, since they're actually the same person at different ages.

In the Hurog duology, Ward's younger sister can't talk due to psychological issues. While she isn't quite as good as the evil-detecting baby (sometimes she doesn't get along with people who are more or less harmless), there are lots of moments where she serves as the metaphorical dog. People who are nice to her are usually trustworthy. Ward is impressed when he meets a woman who can understand his sister's body langauge and facial expressions, and "talk" to her in a way. He ends up getting together with that woman.

Dog in Dragon Age: Origins really likes Morrigan. While his gift to her, a dead rabbit he left in her pack of unmentionables, wasn't exactly appreciated, Morrigan's "dialogue" with Dog shows that his affection does eventually wear down her defenses. In the "Witch Hunt" DLC, Dog is overjoyed when he is reunited with Morrigan.

Subverted in Azumanga Daioh. Sakaki is the school's Huge Schoolgirl, considered universally to be cool, intimidating, and very serious (even though she's far from it). She'd be the perfect candidate for this treatment. Instead, every time she gets near a cat... Further, she desperately wishes she'd be licked, because she just loves those fluffy animals so. When Chiyo's dog, Tadakichi-san, actually allows her to pet him, she does so for hours. Sakaki finally receives this treatment from a wildcat, who stows away, finds her and becomes her pet.

Pretty Cure
Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash★Star: Saki's little sister Minori comes to adore Kaoru due to the latter talking to her bluntly, which made her feel like a grown-up. At the time, Kaoru is The Stoic and secretly a member of the evil Dark Fall. The more she interacts with Minori, the more she comes around.
Fresh Pretty Cure!: Setsuna encounters a little boy and his dog two episodes after her Heel–Face Turn. Way back when she was evil, she had turned the dog into a monster and K-O'ed the kid. The kid doesn't recognize her, but the dog does and Setsuna fears it's reaction. To her surprise, it ends up licking her hand and then being more than willing to play with her, showing no hard feelings for what she did in the past.
Doki Doki Pretty Cure: The innocent baby fairy Ai-chan adores Regina, the spoiled and unapologetic daughter of the Big Bad. Despite that, Regina likes her back. It later turns out they are two parts of the same person, the Big Good.

Similarly, in Pokémon Gold and Silver and their remakes, rival character Silver, a trainer who views pokemon only as tools for battle, starts using a Zubat early on, which quickly evolves into Golbat. It does not evolve into Crobat, however, until he starts to learn the error of his ways and view pokemon as friends.

In the Stargate SG-1 episode "Singularity," the only member of the SG-1 team that the little girl Cassandra will approach is Scary Black Man Teal'c. Although, to be fair, the other team-members look kind of intimidating in their Haz-Mat suits. Still, this is one of Teal'c's first really gentle moment on the show. He is shown eventually to be a Friend to All Children.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: Prince Zuko gets licked by Appa the giant sky bison when he shows up to convince the Gaang that he's actually a decent guy. Justified because he was the one who freed Appa from captivity by the Dai Li, giving Appa a good reason to like him; subverted when they don't believe him anyway.
The Earth King's bear Bosco likes Aang, but he's established as not being an especially reliable judge of character.

Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead is probably the biggest badass in the whole crew. Largely remorseless, crossbow wielding, Walker killing machine. And he's the first person who can calm Lori's baby, who he affectionately dubs "Little Asskicker".
In a similar vein, Michonne is introduced as a cold, anti-social loner who makes no attempt to mingle with the rest of the group. Carl is the first person to take a shine to her, and one of the few people she's ever opened up to about her past. By season 6, the two are officially surrogate mother and son.

Likewise, when the O'Briens were away, their second child only stopped crying when he was held by Worf on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
In Star Trek: The Next Generation he is the only person on the ship who doesn't have to go to Crusher after holding Data's cat (besides Data, of course).

Noob:
Stupid Good Manchild Sparadrap is a frequent source of this, due to his tendency to give an equally friendly treatment to friend, foe and complete stranger. The two only people he doesn't like have respectively killed his much cared-about virtual pets and ended up breaking his guildmaster's heart in the long run. An element revealed in the comic and strongly hinted at in the movie is that one of the hostile enemy players he likes is a police inspector in real life.
Golgotha has a Big Sister Instinct towards her childhood friend Gaea, despite Gaea being a Manipulative Bastard and a Dirty Coward during most of the story.

Rather entertainingly subverted in There's Something About Mary. When one of Mary's suitors discovers she at least partially judges her suitors by her roomate's dog's reaction to them, he drugs the dog so it will be complacent...nearly killing it, and setting it on fire in a misguided attempt to revive it. The dog gets better. Later, when Mary's real love shows up, the dog has been drugged again and goes batshit and tries to eat her love.(Fortunately- sort of- the aforementioned roomate has also ingested the amphetamines planted for the dog and is in no state to notice.)

Same thing with Batman. Children are less afraid of him than the adults and he doesn't mind too much.
Both Dick Grayson and Alfred believe that Damian Wayne can outgrow his violent tendencies and live up to his father's legacy. And so far, they seem to be right, as Damian likes being Robin and finds that doing good is the best thing he has ever done with his life, even breaking away from his mother completely.
Jason Todd to some extent, some kids like him, most are scared of him, but mostly because he hates when children are hurt.
One of the few times this was subverted was in The New Frontier when a little boy who had been kidnapped by cultists was utterly terrified and driven to tears by Batman's original Golden Age costume with the demonic horn-like ears, which leads to him switching to the more streamlined and colorful Silver Age costume.
In at least one story, he muses that the children are innocent and the innocent have nothing to fear from him.

The main character in The Chronicles of Riddick is a pretty bad mofo when it comes to other humanoids, but when he encounters a big, vicious, dangerous predator that could see in the dark and spent a lot of time in a cage they become instant friends, providing an example of this as well as "two of a kind" and a sense of kinship.

Somewhat inverted in Final Fantasy VI, as it's the dog that's supposed to be as unsociable as its owner, Shadow. But when Relm treats Interceptor like an adorable little puppy, he reciprocates. Somehow, this shifts the implications of the trope onto Shadow by proxy. It probably helps that Relm may be Shadow's daughter.
To explain, she IS his daughter and Interceptor used to be the family pet of Shadow's wife (who died shortly after Relm was born) who went with him after he ran off. Interceptor remembers Relm from when she was a baby.

In A Song of Ice and Fire, one of the first hints that the whoremongering Depraved Dwarf Tyrion was actually one of the only decent members of the Lannister family was an early breakfast scene where he was playing with, and adored by, his youngest niece and nephew.
And it's a sign of his brother Jaime's incipient Heel–Face Turn when Brienne of Tarth stops calling him 'Kingslayer' and starts calling him by the respectful 'Ser Jaime'.
An almost literal example occurs when Bran first meets Sam, under worrying circumstances (coming up out of the well in a castle infamous for gruesome ghost stories) - when Bran's wolf Summer licks Sam's hand, Bran decides he can trust him.

In the Futurama episode "The Bird Bot of Ice-Catraz", after some time thinking he's a penguin, Bender reboots back to human mode. A couple of penguins still waddle over and cuddle up to him.
In "The Cyber House Rules," Bender finds out he'll get a government stipend for adopting an orphan and quickly adopts the Orphanarium's entire brood of 12. It works about as well as you'd expect and he ultimately gives them back, but they all retain their adoration for "Daddy Bender" and even give him a picture they drew of themselves with him, which he criticizes and crumples up in front of them before quietly smoothing it out and sticking it to the inside of his chest door with a magnet as soon as he thinks they're not looking. The kids catch him in the act and delightedly swarm him.

For some reason, kids like Wolverine. He doesn't get it, though he doesn't mind it either. He even has a sort of Big Brother Mentor role for both Jubilee and Shadowcat, young women who joined the X-Men before they even turned eighteen. In most cases this would be okay. But for this particular person, it's not only highly unusual; it's often either the result of or leads directly to some sort of screwed-up situation or another.
It does get stretched a bit when he has an entire mini-series of him co-starring with the Power Pack.
Also, Rogue in Ultimateverse.
That role is currently filled by Armor from Astonishing X-Men.
X-23 also fills this role, Wolverine even adopted her.

Game of Thrones:
The first sign that Jojen Reed is a good guy is that the very aggressive and protective Summer refuses to attack him.
One of the early signs that the audience received that Tyrion is more than a drunken whoremonger and a rare decent Lannister is how much the metaphorical dogs Tommen and Myrcella adore him, and he is shown to adore them in return. There's also Podrick's adorable Undying Loyalty towards him.
When Stannis' daughter Shireen sees him for the first time in a while, she squeals and hugs him.

Gakuen Babysitters: This happens fairly often with the babies interacting with other people. Because of the nature of the show, none of the characters are actually evil, but their initial personalities wouldn't normally lend themselves to getting along with toddlers. Regardless, Inomata starts to defrost after the babies apologize to her for making her cry. Inui is initially strong-armed into secretly watching over Kotarō on his first errand, but Kotarō's genuine gratitude to him for saving the lunchbox from falling down the stairs inspires him to see it through more actively. In the manga this results in the two becoming friends, after Inui's first appearance had him dismissively refer to Kotarō as a "space cadet".

"Tiger" from Major Payne, despite being thoroughly intimidated (and rightfully so) by the titular Major, still warms up to him nonetheless, clearly likes and trusts him, and even runs to him for comfort or protection. Not only does this serve as your first major clue that Payne is a Jerk with a Heart of Gold, but the man ultimately ends up adopting the kid.

In Loving Vincent, the Gachets' housekeeper thinks Vincent is "evil." The citizens of Arles think he's mad. To a young girl at Adeline's inn, however, he's just a nice man who draws her pictures.

In The Crow, during the transformation of the recently-resurrected Eric Draven into an unstoppable killing machine vigilante who makes Batman look like an actual pacifist, he pauses to scratch the cat that was left to fend for itself after he and his fiancee were murdered. The cat, in turn, licks his hand, apparently recognizing him even after he's been dead and buried for a year. (Cats have eyes, and cats have long-term memory, but Draven likely doesn't smell like he used to, besides having put on Harlequin-mask face paint.)

In El Goonish Shive, the black-haired antisocial ultra-feminist, hard-ass girl Susan finds herself to be the unwilling target of the cat-hedgehog hybrid Jeremy's affection - and, according to a certain background image, the affection of cute and fuzzy animals in general. After Character Development set in and she learned to be more open with others, she became more of a normal-feminist Deadpan Snarker. The hedgecat was right!

Jessie's Lickitung in Pokémon. Justified, though-Team Rocket's Arbok and Weezing both state in an earlier episode (while they were still Ekans and Koffing, respectively) that it isn't the Pokemon that are evil, it's the trainers. While Jessie eventually adopts it, she wasn't pleased about the licking; it messed up her hair.

In an episode of Beetlejuice, the title character was once punished by being lowered into a pit of cloying sweetness, including unusually friendly kittens. He's not exactly a villain in the series, but he has little tolerance for anything like them.

A literal example with Shaw on Person of Interest, who is a self-admitted Sociopathic Hero, and is still liked by Team Machine's dog. She also really likes him. Its even become a Running Gag where she will either state she is only on the team for the dog, or other characters commenting that "only the dog likes you".
The dog also completely avoids Root at first, until the episode where she officially becomes a Token Evil Teammate. He's then found in her cell, calmly watching her read and allowing her to pet him.

Fresh Pretty Cure!: Setsuna encounters a little boy and his dog two episodes after her Heel–Face Turn. Way back when she was evil, she had turned the dog into a monster and K-O'ed the kid. The kid doesn't recognize her, but the dog does and Setsuna fears it's reaction. To her surprise, it ends up licking her hand and then being more than willing to play with her, showing no hard feelings for what she did in the past.

Crookshanks the cat in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban seems awfully fond of Sirius, to the point of having a Go Through Me moment to protect him. It's kind of an early sign that Sirius is actually a good guy, but Harry's initial conclusion is that it must mean Crookshanks is bad.

In Touhou 11: Subterranean Animism, the heroine is warned to fear the master of the Palace of Earth Spirits, a youkai who can read minds and use your very thoughts against you. The youkai in question, Satori Komeiji, is Not Good with People because of this (and her tendency to read thoughts out loud)... but animals (and formerly-animal youkai) adore her because she understands them better than anyone else.

In Wolf's Rain Tsume objects when Toboe starts licking his wounds. This is something of a subversion, since they're both talking canines, but it looks funny (peculiar and ha-ha) because they're both in human disguise at the time, also adding a level of Ho Yay to the whole thing.

Similarly to Wolverine, Midnighter attracts small children like a magnet, gaining their trust and attention even when he's covered in (someone else's) blood and holding a weapon.

In the original pilot to Firefly, the young cute Kaylee, in what she thinks might be her last words, assures Mal that he and Simon are "good people" in spite of their own questionable actions up to that point.
Mal is quite a hardass initially but Kaylee loves him so the audience can't help loving him, too.

Dragon Ball Z:
Piccolo was considered pure evil by the main cast after nearly killing them all, but little Gohan doesn't understand why, and thinks he's a pretty cool dude. He even sings a song called "I Love Mr. Piccolo" for heaven's sake - and it is sickeningly cute.
Majin Buu also gets licked by the dog, literally. He finds an injured puppy and heals it so that it'll be scared and run away from him, but it thinks of Buu as its new best friend. At one point, Mr. Satan convinces Buu that there are other things to do than kill and destroy, but then the dog gets shot...
A bit before that, Buu encounters a blind kid, who isn't scared of Buu because he can't see him, so Buu heals his eyes. The kid is very grateful, and doesn't find Buu's appearance scary, or even not normal, because Buu is the first thing he ever saw and he doesn't know what a normal person looks like.
And in Cross Epoch, the One Piece/Dragon Ball crossover, Chopper offers Vegeta cake. Awwww...

A good amount of characters from Anpanman see Baikinman as a good guy, despite being told otherwise by more heroic characters... or by Baikinman himself. A lot of times, these come from seeing him do one good deed by mistake, and assume he's a good guy thanks to that. He has a tendency to become exasperated in their presence during episodes that star that character.

In Monstress, Kippa voluntarily followed Maika when she broke out of the Cumaea slave prison, because she's "good at killing people" and would therefore make a good protector. Even after Maika, in a fit of Horror Hunger, eats a child right in front of her, Kippa seems to instinctively know that Maika cares for her, and sticks by her even in dangerous situations. (Although it doesn't stop her from temporarily running away when she knows her life is in danger from the Monstra.) Maika is surprised by this, but it ultimately wins her over.
