Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })A person who breaks the law, for their own personal profit, but is nice enough and charming enough to allow the audience to root for them, especially if they don't kill or otherwise seriously harm anyone. It helps that none of their victims are anyone we know or that they've made sure the audience knew they were jerks, which makes it "okay" to steal from them. For extra points, he may even give some of his takings to the poor. The most legitimate way to make this trope work is by making the rogue a Justified Criminal who steals only to survive in an uncaring world that leaves him with no other option, ESPECIALLY if the laws are unfair and benefit a select few at the expense of others including the rogue.
Note that while morally a click below your average antihero in the sense that they might not be considered a hero at all, the Lovable Rogue is strongly associated with highly Idealistic series on the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism, as Cynical series tend not to place value on the concept of a Code of Honor, which is usually what makes the Lovable Rogue, well, lovable.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Their loyalties are often played with, particularly if they show up to rescue the hero. If they end up being the star of the show, expect a straight-arrow Supporting Protagonist to be the audience viewpoint character. Complicating matters further is the fact that this person is usually chased by a Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist.
A click above the Lovable Traitor, who is definitely not a nice person, but wins by lowering the audience's expectations so much, that he charms them with a few token Pet the Dog moments (which usually include helping the hero. It's amazing how much fans will overlook if they help the hero). Usually male, but female thieves tend to be considered Lovable Rogues by default; i.e. they are not "rare".
The g comes before the u, ladies and gentlemen. That is, unless you're talking about Rouge the Bat, who just happens to be a good example of this trope, in more ways than one. If the charming person is a villain instead of an Anti-Hero, then they are described as being Affably Evil. The audience will usually not root for a villain, even if he or she is Affably Evil. Usually.

Chosokabe Motochika from Sengoku Basara is a kleptomaniac pirate known as the "Demon of the Western Sea" who crushes people's skulls with a giant anchor. However, once you get past this he's actually a fairly honest, charming, and good-hearted guy who values things like friendship and keeping promises, and overall one of the most honourable characters around.

Silk from Belgariad; popular enough that he was the only non-sorcerer member of the party (aside from the Love Interest Ce'Nedra) to star in both The Belgariad and its sequel, The Mallorean.
David Eddings then put artistic street urchin and pickpocket Talen and Gentleman Thief Stragen into The Elenium and The Tamuli.
The Tamuli also gained Caalador, a swindler and thieving coordinator who drops in and out of a folksy drawl whenever he feels like it. Queen Ehlana finds his routine charming, and at one point speculates on whether she can work the phrase "happier 'n' pigs in mud" into a royal proclamation, and his feigned accent is infectious enough that nearly everyone in the series imitates it at least once.

The Undersiders from Worm are this to a greater (Tattletale and Grue) or lesser (Regent and Bitch) degree when we first meet them. A band of teenage supervillains who rob banks and casinos and whatnot for fun and profit, all of them either have sympathetic motivations (like Grue) or extremely nasty backstories which guarantee that they couldn't have normal lives even if they wanted to for reasons largely beyond their control. As the Villain Protagonists of the story, they tend to fluctuate between putting their lives on the line for the greater good and trying to Take Over the City.

Hex from the Alpha Force series. A snarky serial hacker who's apparently broken into some highly classified websites, who admits he only does it for the challenge (Except when the person really deserves to have their bank accounts emptied) and is otherwise highly moral.

Downplayed with Emmon in Gifts. Caspromant only takes him in because the whole place is undergoing a Heroic BSoD. As a lowlander, Emmon's accent reminds Canoc of his recently-deceased wife, and Emmon has entertaining stories and questions for Orrec and Gry; plus he's a novelty. When he takes some silverware with him on his way out, the family takes it stoically since they knew he was a thief in the first place.

In TerraTech, early-game quest giver Crafty Mike always seems to have dubiously-legal "business" to take care of, so he ropes the player into doing minor tasks around his bases. The loveableness comes into play because he lets the player keep the bases, including powerful crafting equipment that can't be found anywhere else unless the player gets lucky with invaders.

Seregil, one of the main characters in Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series also fits this trope to a T. He will steal from even relatively poor people if he must (e.g., stealing horses from a farm while on the run) and he has no problems with killing in self-defense, but mainly he steals stuff like jewelry from the rich and even that only occasionally - his primary occupation and purpose in life is to be a spy working for the Crown and other governmental functionaries of his adopted home country, and these days his wealth is mostly based on legitimate investments he made with the valuables he stole or won in his youth. And he cares very deeply about behaving honorably in those areas of life that the readers will care aboutnote E.g., he angsts a great deal about not letting his 17-year-old apprentice know that he's developed romantic feelings for him, because he knows that this is an unequal situation that might lead the teenager to feel pressured into complying. Nobody else in this quasi-medieval setting where girls get married at 15 sees any problem with this potential relationship, but Seregil seems to have distinctly modern attitudes about meaningful consent, at least for male/male relationships.. The "lovable" aspects of the trope are in full effect in order to make him look like a believable love interest for the other main character Alec, who starts out as an innocent, good-hearted and law-abiding male version of the classic ingenue and thus would not have wanted to join Seregil as an apprentice if the man didn't quickly turn out to have a lot of charm, a good sense of humor, and a heart of gold.note If the first books in this series hadn't been published in the mid 1990s, you couldn't be faulted for suspecting that they started out as Pirates of the Caribbean slashfic, with just the serial numbers filed off and the setting changed to something less nautical adventure and more cloak-and-dagger type fantasy - so similar are the main characters to Captain Jack Sparrow (minus the drunkeness) and the initially straight-laced William.

Shawn Spencer, from Psych, who likes coming up with scams and cons as part of his job. But he also scams people to keep his best friend from looking bad...
Not to mention the fact that he scams the police department, regularly, by pretending to be a psychic. Oh, and the various crimes and misdemeanors he perpetrates in every single episode.
But he only does those things to solve worse crimes (and the first time, to keep from being wrongfully arrested)!... And also sometimes for fun.
And wrongfully arrested for essentially doing the police department's job for them. Constantly. If anyone is justified for irreverent behavior towards law enforcement, it's Shawn.
Basically, the cops would rather arrest him for being involved in a crime than believe he's that good at spotting things.

In Enter the Gungeon, the Pilot, one of the playable characters (Gungeoneers), derives inspiration from this trope, with his smile and energetic pose shown in his thumbnail and boss slides. Furthermore, once he is taken back to his past, he can be seen helping his wingman loot/steal from a wrecked ship in the beginning.

Nathan Drake's interactions with his crew in the Uncharted series makes him an lovable and entertaining rogue. He also tends to operate at least somewhat outside the law (such as being forced to get into an explosive gunfight with pirates in the first game's intro due to operating without a permit), and Uncharted 2 opens with him engaging in a museum break-in.

Also Yogi Bear of the same team. He's obsessed with stealing 'pic-a-nic baskets' from campers and often winding up Ranger Smith in the process, but he's a friendly easy going guy who is repentant when his stunts cause significant problems in the park. In most interpretations he is not portrayed as a thief he becomes an outright protagonist solving mysteries or helping friends.

Fire Emblem:
Heather from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is a thief who steals more for her sick mother than herself. She also steals money by charming men, however, despite flirting with every female she engages in conversation with.
In Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, there's Legault. Whether he's Ambiguously Bi or not (the fandom still doesn't decide), he sure is a charmer.
Gaius, from Awakening, is first seen with a band of assassins with designs on killing the Exalt, having been led to believe they were just there to rob the place. He's... upset when he finds out the truth, and joins the party at the prospect of free candy as well as being in more savory company.

The Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch basically runs on this trope, with the main character Locke Lamora being a textbook example, except for an unusual lack of flirtiness/promiscuity. Still, he's got the quick wits, he's got the snarky sense of humor, and while he will kill or torture people who have harmed those he loves, he's got unusually high-minded ethics in comparison to practically everyone else in the setting - especially after the author slightly retcons the basic tenets of the character's deeply held religious faith in the second book to be more politically-minded (teach the rich and powerful a lesson) than simply amoral (steal from those who have money because you can). He's still no Robin Hood (he doesn't give away the money to the poor), but he doesn't steal to enrich himself but mainly uses his ill-gotten gains to plan and execute more heists designed to embarrass and harm the oppressive and often sociopathic upper class. The rest of the Gentlemen Bastards crew also count, especially the Sansa twins and Sabetha (the former are more humorous clowns, the latter is more the charming con artist).

Mudd is brought back (or forward?) in Star Trek: Discovery, although the younger version is more "rogue" than "lovable". He becomes more like his TOS self in the "Escape Artist" short, trying to bullshit his way out of being turned over to Starfleet for a bounty.

Jean Valjean from Les Misérables, the book's primary protagonist, Atoner, and Messiah. He's a convict who spent years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister's starving family, with more added to his sentence due repeated attempts to escape - making it a total of 19 years. He then spends the rest of the story trying to make the best of his life by being an honest man.

Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter books. While in school they take a positive delight in breaking rules- including a couple of actual wizarding laws -and generally messing with people, but always remain on the 'good' side of things. After dropping out of school, they open an amazingly successful joke shop.
The Marauders would be another, at least when they were young, having actually broken the law by not registering to become animagi, and being a bit jerkier.

Ali al-Saachez from Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is a subversion; his men love him for his fun nature, and he does take care of them, often fighting Gundams by himself because he knows only he can match them in direct combat. However, he's also a Blood Knight who cares only for chaos and slaughter; if it's not him causing a civil war, it's making children kill their parents to prove their devotion to the cause, or just random murder for the sake of it. Though it hasn't really stopped the actual audience from enjoying him anyway.

Sam Starfall, from Freefall, isn't someone you would trust with a loose credit — and if you shake hands with him, count your fingers afterwards — but he does have a Code of Honor, he doesn't do anyone any physical harm, and his exploits are generally comedic enough that, even in-universe, most of the inhabitants of Jean simply regard him as a cross between a public nuisance and street theater.

Shaun the Sheep in his spin off series. His schemes often involve screwing the Farmer or Bitzer in some way, but he has no harmful intent and occasionally tries to do nice things for them to compensate. Usually the rest of the flock get in on this too.

Thomas Raith of The Dresden Files. As a vampire, he has a slightly different morality system from humans, but he does try to minimize the damage he causes. It helps that he becomes a woobie to rival the protagonist as we learn more about him, and that he's not a sociopath like the rest of his vampiric family.

Frank Abagnale of Catch Me If You Can (winningly played by Leonardo DiCaprio). He's a very clever young man who successfully passes for a lawyer, doctor, and airline pilot, whilst committing millions of dollars worth of check fraud. But he only does this because he sees no other prospects for himself; what he longs for most is a stable family. Pursuing FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) comes to realize this, so arranges for Frank to eventually achieve a happy ending. This story has some overlap with Real Life.

Like the Discworld example above, almost deconstructed in Chris Wooding's Ketty Jay series with Darian Frey, the main protagonist. He's a petty crook, and while he's certainly charming, has yet to cross the Moral Event Horizon, and learned loyalty to his crew, he is also deeply selfish and the author never lets us forget his flaws for long. In his first appearance he allows an enemy to shoot his friend and shipmate rather than lose his ship; in the first scene of the second book, he and his crew are found robbing an orphanage. Yet, they remain sympathetic. That takes skill.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has recurring villain Doug Judy. He's an unrepentant criminal and liar, but he's so charismatic and friendly, even to his enemies, that it's impossible not to love him. This is probably why all of Jake's attempts to arrest him fail — he's so likable, the audience wouldn't actually be glad if Jake won. Lampshaded:

InuYasha: Miroku has no qualms about lying, drinking, womanizing, conning and stealing, being determined to enjoy life to its fullest, but he later shows that he's also loyal, wise, and is ready to help and protect others even with his own life. Although there is pressure on him to produce an heir that can avenge his death (and also inherit the same curse), his womanizing is an inherited character flaw. His grandfather's womanizing nature is what allowed his Arch-Enemy to curse the family line in the first place. Miroku's flaws therefore run in the family.

Daffy Duck of Looney Tunes fame, under Robert McKimson's direction was evolved into a compromise of both his former and latter forms, often acting as a con artist or door to door salesman. In tradition with this trope, his luck was often karma based, when trying to swindle protagonists such as Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig he was usually foiled, when trying to make money out of antagonists such as Elmer Fudd and the Tazmanian Devil however, Daffy would often make a profit.

The Order of the Stick
Julio Scoundrél, who briefly becomes Elan's mentor.
And back in the main party, Haley Starshine probably qualifies, even though we almost never see her actually break any laws (at least, in the strip itself). We see her doing a sneaky burglary and theft in the prequel On the Origin of PCs, and likewise in this online comic strip. Suffice to say, in Dungeons & Dragons the Thief or Rogue has been a character class from the beginning, and a life of crime does not mean a thief character is automatically considered evil in alignment, he just cannot be lawful.

Though he claims otherwise at first, Varden of ''Inverloch is really a decent fellow who comes to really care about the group (especially Lei'ella). He got into thieving mainly because of emotional issues about his Missing Mom and his dad's shipping business going bust due to politics, and stayed in it because he enjoyed it and he was good at it. Lei'ella becomes his partner for a while, but eventually convinces him to follow his dad's footsteps after a dangerous job.

The Last Jedi sets up the hacker DJ as a successor to Han; a Jerk with a Heart of Gold crook who joins up with the heroes for his own benefit, only to end up a genuine part of the team. Then it's brutally subverted. He's quirky and friendly on the surface, but he's still a selfish criminal deep down and he sells out Finn and Rose the second things go sideways. He's not given any sort of redemption arc like Lando either; the First Order pays him and he leaves, though he is left visibly shaken by his actions.

Green, from Pokémon Adventures, fits this description at first. She consistently cheats and lies, and shows absolutely no signs of a conscience or caring for anyone but herself, yet she and Red manage to remain on almost friendly terms. She gets nicer and gives up thievery by the end of the first arc, but still keeps some lovable and roguish qualities.

There's a good chance that any given Thief/Rogue, Bard, or Swashbuckler you meet in a game of Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder is this kind of character. An old maxim of roleplaying states that "A thief or rogue character will never be morally centrist. He will either be a good-natured chap who steals from people who deserve it and is the subject of much affection, or he will be a complete sociopath". There's an even better chance they won't be, but will pretend they are.

In Fushigi Yuugi, the rough and brash thief Tasuki's first appearance consists of kidnapping the heroine Miaka, unleashing ghost wolves against the heroes who try to stop him, and later faking his own death to avoid joining the heroes. However, he later shows up to save the heroes from zombies and becomes completely dedicated to their cause, to the point of nearly making a Heroic Sacrifice on Miaka's behalf.
Plus, the actual thieving of Tasuki's thief gang is easy to ignore, since they border on being The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything anyway (except when they briefly serve as The Cavalry later in the series, which makes their thieving even easier to ignore).

Henchgirl: Mary Posa was introduced as “the villain with a heart of gold” - she's henching for the money (and because she has serious problems adulting in the legitimate world), prefers to steal from the rich and banks, doesn't kill, blows the whistle on the Butterfly Gang's scheme to rip off the orphanage, which she finds abhorrent, doesn't steal from her friends or family (with one exception), and is portrayed as a very likeable, if needy and people-pleasing, young woman. Things change, however, when Monsieur Butterfly has Dr. Maniac inject her with Psycho Serum, turning her more reckless and cruel. Even then, her good qualities prompt her friends and sister to use The Powerof Friendship to try to save her from committing irredeemable acts, at the cost of Tina's arm, Coco's life, and Fred's body.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Quark is one of these most of the time almost to the point of being a Gentleman Thief. This makes him the first exemplar of the virtues of Ferengi. Its telling that Quark is noticeably uncomfortable when he turns to arms dealing to stay afloat and the people who liked him up to that point are disappointed in him. He also typically abhors violence.

All of the members of The A-Team are this since the bad guys are so one-dimensionally horrible, but Face probably fits here the most since he's the slick and charming ladies' man (and Con Man). The team also fits as a group of Anti-Heroes.

Magick Chicks: Ash has occasionally lead breastplate raids on Artemis Academy. Despite this, he's roguishly handsome and charming enough that he's gained a fair number of admirers among its students. It also helps that he looks out for his cohorts and is skilled enough to trade repartee and punches with their student council president, whom he happens to be dating, as even she can't resist his charms.

Subverted with Jack from Fables and its spin-off ''Jack of Fables." He starts out like this but get to know him long enough and like the tpb character introductions state he is the "lovable rogue" without the "lovable" part.
From the same series is Reynard the Fox, who appears as one, who seems to have a self-serving agenda, but then genuinely appears to just want to help. He even points out that being self-serving and helping others are goals that complement each other.

Ozan, one of the Signature Heroes of RuneScape, seems to fit this category well. He happens to be a thief and a liar with an inflated ego... Yet his friendly, fun and charming personality makes him likable despite this. Oh, and he is a hero (if the term Signature Heroes wasn't enough of a clue).

Talon Karrde has been said by his creator to be based off of what Han Solo might have become in the years since the films, if he hadn't fallen for Leia. Karrde developed from there — it's hard to imagine Solo running a large and well-organized smuggling/information brokering group — but the basic idea is the same. He's Not in This for Your Revolution, he has no love for the Empire but doesn't see the profit or point in open resistance, and he does have a sense of honor. The audiobook version of Heir to the Empire even felt the need to give him a Spanish accent.

Darien Fawkes in The Invisible Man. He's a notorious thief who only got caught last time because he tried to revive an old man he thought was having a heart attack (instead, he got convicted for attempted rape). His brother, an accomplished scientist, gets him out of prison to be the guinea pig for a top-secret project. After Darien gets the quicksilver gland, he can now become invisible at will. A dream come true for a thief. However, he needs regular injections of a counteragent that prevents him from going insane from quicksilver overdose, a deliberate flaw in the gland. Despite now working for a secret government agency, Darien still has plenty of roguish qualities, who loves to use his new ability to sneak into places he shouldn't (like spy on a guard and a nurse getting it on). However, in the series finale, the flaw in the gland is finally fixed, allowing him to be free from the Agency. The first thing he does is rob a place, only to leave the money on the sidewalk when he realizes he's not the same guy anymore.

''Red Dead Redemption: John Marston.
In Red Dead Redemption II, Arthur Morgan counts. While he's an outlaw who has killed many people in the past over money, with several negative flaws such as being prone to anger quickly, starting fights, maybe even shooting or knocking out someone at the drop of a hat, he's still rather very likable and can be a genuine Nice Guy when he wants to be, coming off as a Jerk with a Heart of Gold at best who's loyal to the people in his camp and friends, showing kindness and being compassionate to innocent townsfolk while often lending a hand to those he comes across, even willing to suck some venom out of a man's leg! Many women find him charming and men think he's a gentleman, although he'll often deny this and tell him he's really a bad man. He highly respects women, talks to them in a respectful manner and agrees with their rights to be able to vote (speaking the game takes place in a time period where women were treated in disregard and seen as the property of their husbands) and thinks nothing bad of women who can hold her own and often encourages and supports them. He even shows one of them how to shoot a gun properly and being patient with her. He'll even bust doors down and throw up all Hell if he finds out about a woman is being raped or threatened somewhere. He doesn't support racism and is courteous to people of all races. One of his best friends is a black man. Not to mention that he's really affectionate with his horses and dotes on them, and also the stray dogs he meets, and has a low tolerance of animal abuse. He also enjoys literature and can often be seen writing in his journal to reflect on his thoughts and feelings throughout the game, with aesthetically-pleasing handwriting and reveals a very eloquent and even sensitive side you'd never guess he'd have, even self-doubting himself at times. He tries his darnest towards redeeming himself towards the end of the game, doing everything he can to help others before his sickness takes over.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword introduced the Mogmas, a race of tunnel dwellers who are mostly seen plotting to steal ancient treasure from the local temples. Despite being thieves they always repay debts, and their kindness and inclination to help Link save Zelda make them very lovable.

Stephen Bloom in The Brothers Bloom. He's a con man who has no problems stealing money, blowing things up, and even occasionally being violent. He drinks, smokes, and swears. However, unless you try to hurt someone he cares about, he doesn't wish real harm on anyone. Stephen spends most of his life with one goal: taking care of the little brother he loves. In fact, the entire movie is a plot of Stephen's to find a way to make his brother happy.

On the other hand the original series did it very well with the immortal and immoral Harry Mudd, as well as the somewhat more benevolent Cyrano Jones.
Mudd is brought back (or forward?) in Star Trek: Discovery, although the younger version is more "rogue" than "lovable". He becomes more like his TOS self in the "Escape Artist" short, trying to bullshit his way out of being turned over to Starfleet for a bounty.

The Smuggler in Star Wars: The Old Republic runs on this Trope. S/he is Refuge in Audacity personified, starts out as a small-time gun-runner on a corrupt Republic backwater and pretty much ends up leading half the criminal underworld by the endgame. But it's hard not to laugh when the Smuggler trolls the guy who stole his/her ship by inflating the guy's criminal record and marking him as a carrier of "Bothan Nether Rot."

Tomi Undergallows from Neverwinter Nights is probably the most entertaining henchman for his sense of humor and his questionably accurate tales of working for evil monstrous humanoids and stealing the hearts of women twice his size. Deekin from the expansion packs also counts because, well, he's a kobold bard. A nonevil kobold bard who speaks in the third person and sings about doom. How can you not love that? "AAAAHH!

Game of Thrones:
Via a combination of being hilarious and badass, Bronn is definitely this.
Tyrion fills a similar niche in the cast to Han Solo or Captain Jack Sparrow, as the resident charismatic anti-heroic Deadpan Snarker. He constantly defies his noble superiors and authorities (including his own father), leading to many memorable moments such as slapping and talking down to Joffrey and an epic "The Reason You Suck" Speech in "The Mountain and the Viper".
Daario is a mercenary with wit, charm and a very badass demeanour.

Note artistic liberty here; the historical Private Hook was no malingerer, not in any way a disciplinary problem, and fought even more bravely in the battle than the film portrays him as doing.

Jansen Friedh from Lost Odyssey plays this one almost perfectly, with a healthy dose of Plucky Comic Relief. Obfuscating Stupidity too. And a little bit of Butt-Monkey. He's one of the best characters in the game.

Rodney Skinner, in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. A cheerfully self-acknowledged Gentleman Thief, who stole the invisibility serum so that he could be the greatest thief in the world, he arguably emerges as the most lovable character in the whole movie. Bonus points for being the Reverse Mole and also for winning over fans of the graphic novel who were disgusted by his predecessor, original invisible man Hawley Griffin.

In Critical Role's first campaign, Scanlan was a textbook example of this trope, as can be expected of a gnomish bard played by a trained comedian and musical/voice actor who is old enough to fully embrace his attention-seeking personality 'flaw' and turn it into a virtue for the entertainment of his friends. Vax and Vex might also count, since they each have levels in the Rogue character class and Vex can be very charming and has stolen a few things. Vax, despite being the main Rogue of the Vox Machina party, never actually steals anything (at least during the broadcast parts of their adventures) and he's probably the kindest and most empathetic male character in the groupnote And he's played by the player who seems most interested in playing out sweet/awkward romance scenes, as well as being really invested in playing out his close and supportive relationship with his fictional sister Vex., though he also enjoys playing pranks on those of his male friends with whom he has a Vitriolic Best Buds type relationship. (See also: the entry for Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder above, since those are the RPG systems this campaign was based on.)

Captain Jack Sparrow, from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, is a mix of this and Magnificent Bastard. He has his own peculiar code of honor and is generally a protagonist, but is highly pragmatic and values his own skin over everyone else's.

Rikku from Final Fantasy X. Sure, she's a thief who comes from a group of people who are considered heathens, and even kidnaps Yuna at one point, but she's also a sweet, lovable Genki Girl who's always ready to brighten up the mood. It doesn't hurt that the game reveals the reason why she tried to kidnap Yuna, is because she's Yuna's cousin and trying to prevent her and other summoners from committing a Senseless Sacrifice.

The pirates from Dubious Company. Sure they steal ships, rum, and polyphase conductors, but overall they're terrible pirates. Of course their main adversaries, the Imperial Guard, are terrible officers. A major arc involved the pirates trying to stop the Imperial Guard from giving the Emperor superpowers, by murdering an otherwise innocent priestess.

Rattrap from Beast Wars. At one point Optimus Primal is presumed dead during the course of one night. During that time Rattrap takes it upon himself to take over his (much nicer) quarters and replace everything with his own stuff. When he is called out on it, his response is basically "Hey, come on.

If Robin Hood is a Lovable Rogue, then definitely we have to include Yoshimitsu of SoulCalibur and Tekken. In both games, he steals from rich people and gives to the poor, much like Robin Hood. Most people love him, even if he's not really important to either storyline, but everyone loves him only because he's just so damn awesome. It helps that he can use his sword as a pogo stick. And as a helicopter.

However, balance all that out with how unbelievably laughable his scams can be, along with his Pet the Dog moments with his friends and his chance to excel over his main targets (Kevin or Sarah) in certain episodes, he actually becomes quite likable.

According to the presenters of Top Gear and The Grand Tour, anyone who drives a Jaguar can do mildly despicable things but get away with it. The Grand Tour even has an episode to demonstrate that you can "borrow" towels and bathrobes from a hotel, drink most of a bottle of wine before declaring it "corked," and get out of a speeding ticket by exploiting your British passport, but it's okay. Because you drive a Jaaaaaaag...

Hellblazer: John Constantine sometimes qualifies — if you're watching from a distance. If you're personally acquainted with him, you'd be more inclined to say that he is a prick, since sometimes his only goal is taking care of his own interests, and he can exploit others ruthlessly. But most of the time he's saving the world, which makes him an anti-hero.

Frank Skeffington in The Last Hurrah is a crooked big-city machine politician who is nonetheless beloved by his constituents (and not because he is fooling them- they know how he works, and they don't care). He may hand out offices and money as a way of buying political power, but he is ferociously loyal and would never desert a friend. Still, his portrayal is a little more overtly sympathetic in the Film than in the novel, which is slightly more ambivalent about him and his legacy.

In Red Dead Redemption II, Arthur Morgan counts. While he's an outlaw who has killed many people in the past over money, with several negative flaws such as being prone to anger quickly, starting fights, maybe even shooting or knocking out someone at the drop of a hat, he's still rather very likable and can be a genuine Nice Guy when he wants to be, coming off as a Jerk with a Heart of Gold at best who's loyal to the people in his camp and friends, showing kindness and being compassionate to innocent townsfolk while often lending a hand to those he comes across, even willing to suck some venom out of a man's leg! Many women find him charming and men think he's a gentleman, although he'll often deny this and tell him he's really a bad man. He highly respects women, talks to them in a respectful manner and agrees with their rights to be able to vote (speaking the game takes place in a time period where women were treated in disregard and seen as the property of their husbands) and thinks nothing bad of women who can hold her own and often encourages and supports them. He even shows one of them how to shoot a gun properly and being patient with her. He'll even bust doors down and throw up all Hell if he finds out about a woman is being raped or threatened somewhere. He doesn't support racism and is courteous to people of all races. One of his best friends is a black man. Not to mention that he's really affectionate with his horses and dotes on them, and also the stray dogs he meets, and has a low tolerance of animal abuse. He also enjoys literature and can often be seen writing in his journal to reflect on his thoughts and feelings throughout the game, with aesthetically-pleasing handwriting and reveals a very eloquent and even sensitive side you'd never guess he'd have, even self-doubting himself at times. He tries his darnest towards redeeming himself towards the end of the game, doing everything he can to help others before his sickness takes over.

Jonathan Small, opponent of Sherlock Holmes in "Sign of the Four" has committed various acts of murder and robbery, which he tells of in detail - and still has much of the reader's sympathy. He has a strong loyalty to his three co-conspirators; also, much of his story takes place in a quite brutal penal colony - and of course, in this situation the reader tends to side with the prisoner against the guards.

Former French President Jacques Chirac is portrayed this way in the satirical fake news show with puppets Les Guignols de l'info, being shown to be a shameless liar (he even had another identity as Super Menteur, i.e. "Super Liar") while still remaining highly likable.

Nick from Left 4 Dead 2 has a somewhat shady (and probably violent) criminal past, and he starts out with a lone wolf-style attitude, but because of the circumstances he's in, as the game progresses, he's slowly forced to shed that attitude, and learns to trust and respect his teammates (well, respect MOST of them) and almost grows close to them, through whatever they go through.
It also helps that he's the character providing most of the game's Deadpan Snarker. He bounces some of the best lines off of Ellis because of this.

Jack, in Dark Parables: Jack and the Sky Kingdom, grew up impoverished and decided to be Just Like Robin Hood in order to spread around that wealth to which he helps himself. His cottage is partly decorated with notes and drawings sent to him by children whose families he has helped. Nevertheless, he's still quite the fortune hunter and has a massive treasure trove in his basement. He's also extremely roguish in personality, but even so, he's one of the most lovable characters the Fairy Tale Detective has yet met.

Star Trek: The Next Generation tried to pull one of these off in a second season episode, "The Outrageous Okona". While it didn't work too well, he was at least a little funny. It comes off as almost a parody of the concept; when it comes down to it he's just an eccentric delivery driver who does nothing illegal.
On the other hand the original series did it very well with the immortal and immoral Harry Mudd, as well as the somewhat more benevolent Cyrano Jones.
Mudd is brought back (or forward?) in Star Trek: Discovery, although the younger version is more "rogue" than "lovable". He becomes more like his TOS self in the "Escape Artist" short, trying to bullshit his way out of being turned over to Starfleet for a bounty.
ST:TNG also had a supporting character named Vash, a female version of this trope who romanced Picard for a short time. For bonus irony points, Q casts her as Maid Marion in a Robin Hood fantasy.
