comment
This occurs when the hero realizes that a villain they are fighting is either not so bad, after all, has relatable (if still wrong) reasons for doing what they have done, or at least they just sees a vulnerable side in them which makes them empathise to an extent. This sentiment generally is easier to justify in stories with morally ambiguous characters like Black-and-Gray Morality, Grey-and-Gray Morality or White-and-Grey Morality. Used well, it can make for greater emotional value and added depth to the villain. If neither of those are the case, it can still show the kindness of the hero who feels bad for their foes, because they know that the villain will always be unhappy and unsatisfied in their cruel lives. When used badly, however, it will make the sympathy feel unwarranted and add needless Wangst. Often the story will have a worse villain to contrast with the sympathetic one and act as a Hate Sink for the audience.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Commonly enough, the two characters involved treat each other as Worthy Opponents and they may be the target of Foe Yay. Sometimes, the villain in whom the hero found a glimmer of humanity will die or suffer a Fate Worse than Death to provide angst for the hero or just because the Word of God must "confirm" that they don't support crime and that Redemption Equals Death. If they get killed by another villain, it's almost always a Kick the Dog moment for that villain. If they do survive, they are a prime candidate for a Heel–Face Turn.
When it's the audience who feel sympathy for the villain regardless of whether or not the heroes or even the creator do, it's Cry for the Devil or Draco in Leather Pants. Compare with Antagonist in Mourning, Last-Second Chance, Rival Turned Evil, Can't Kill You, Still Need You. Contrast Sympathy for the Hero where it's the villain having a similar realization about the hero.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The name comes from a 1968 song by The Rolling Stones which, incidentally, is not an example of this trope at all; in the song, Satan is sarcastically confessing that he's responsible for all the evil throughout history, when it's really mankind denying their own sins.
A common trait of an All-Loving Hero. May overlap with Go-Karting with Bowser, Alas, Poor Villain, or Enemy Mine moments. May induce Cradling Your Kill.

Link and Zelda show pity for the alternate timeline version of Ganondorf, in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, after his death; this is somewhat strange, given how this Ganondorf is portrayed. While we know from Wind Waker that both final versions of Ganondorf were originally out to save his people, this version never regains his sanity and remains a Big Bad, despite similar circumstances of imprisonment. Needless to say, he's not intended to be sympathetic.

April 14th 2006, CMLL Super Viernes, Dark Angel became the first luchadora to win a mask in Arena Mexico when she defeated her resentful ex partner La Amapola. However, Stock knew what it felt like to have to permanently unmask and that it must be even worse being the first woman to lose her mask in the storied arena and cried for her. Amapola didn't care to hear this though and stormed off.

In the Buffy comic series Tales of the Vampires, a group of young Watchers-in-training are brought before a captured vampire who tells them all about vampires both as monsters and people. At the end, after foiling an attempt by this vampire's sire to free him, (and killing the sire) the main character acknowledges that she did learn from the vampire and apologizes for his loss as he weeps disconsolately.

A glorious example being shown at the final episode of Ultraman Geed, as featured in the photo of the main article. Confronting his Archnemesis Dad, Riku discovers that for all of Belial's heinous acts, deep down, his grudges, eternal cycle of ressurection, and sorrow over having been banished from the Land of Light had consumed him. He gives a Cooldown Hug to his father and tells him to just let go of his grudges. Unfortunately, Belial just can't accept being comforted by his son and chose to be killed, seemingly once and for all, in a Beam-O-War. The last words Riku speaks to his father are heartbreaking:

In the original Shadow Hearts, as Yuri and the party find out more about Roger Bacon's impostor, Albert Simon, they start to feel this way towards him. The final battle with him is as rivals deciding the course the world should take, rather than a showdown between Good and Evil... and when he loses, he uses the last of his power before dying to send Yuri and his friends to destroy the Meta God, keeping his word that, win or lose, both sides would accept the consequences and there would be no hard feelings.
The sequel takes it even further, with most of the antagonists being at least somewhat sympathetic. The Final Boss, in fact, could probably have finished his plans without interference if he hadn't told Yuri and company when and where to meet him.

Marlon from The Walking Dead Season Four counts as this at least somewhat. After he admits everything he's done and is subsequently shot by AJ, everyone at Ericson unanimously condemns his having given away Sophie and Minnie to The Delta, impulsively killing Brodie, and trying to frame Clementine for it after locking her away with Brodie's walker. But then you actually get to the Delta and see what they're like, you would be forgiven for empathizing with Marlon, a young man tasked making all the major decisions, by himself, for a group of kids abandoned and left alone by their caretakers, being faced with an armed militia of adults demanding that he give two up two of his friends to save all of the other kids. He owns up to what he did, admits that he's been a piece of shit, and tries to give up peacefully before he's killed. When confronted with how evil the Delta is, AJ, who shot Marlon in the head without a second thought, admits that he wasn't a monster.

In The Mental State, Officer Reed is subjected to a great deal of humiliation by the resident sociopath. He is deprived of any chance of promotion and forced into a life of drug addiction while stuck in prison. However, once Zack explains to him that he wants to stop the prison drug trade too, and even devises a plan to do so, he starts to realise that they are not so different after all. Once cured of his drug addiction, he actually starts to bond with the sociopath, who opens up to him about his own problems.

When Aizen is finally defeated in Bleach, Ichigo is only able to feel pity for him after sensing the soul-crushing loneliness that ultimately drove Aizen's delusions of godhood.
Before that, there was Ulquiorra's intense, emotional death scene, during which his (now former) captive Orihime reassures him that she's not afraid of him and tries to hold his hand as he disintegrates. This is reinforced a few chapters later when Ichigo notes that she's been rather upset about the Arrancar's death, especially when compared to his surviving comrade (whose reaction can be summed up as "oh, he's dead?").

In The Belgariad, the evil god Torak is a warmongering, human-sacrificing, narcissistic menace to the world — and a literal cosmic mistake who knows that he was never meant to exist and that he will be replaced by the god he was supposed to be. In their duel, Garion throws him off guard for the fatal blow by reminding him that nobody in the universe has ever loved him, and feels badly for Torak even years later.

In Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, the Storm King used to be the Sitha prince Ineluki, dedicating his entire life to protecting his people. His flame burned so brightly that he might have led them out of their exile, but instead the humans came and waged an unstoppable war. Rejecting his father's fatalism, he delved deeply into Things Man Was Not Meant to Know, destroying his own sanity in the process. His final attempt to destroy the invaders cast him into the realm beyond death, where his hate burned in darkness for five centuries. This tragic backstory proves key to defeating his plan to return to (and destroy) the mortal world, by showing him Forgiveness at a crucial moment.

Not to mention both pre-timeskip Lord Genome and the Anti-Spiral, who, despite being mortal enemies, are both using the same basic strategy of tyranny to protect what they love (humanity from the Anti-Spiral for Lord Genome, the universe from humanity for the Anti-Spiral).

Naruto:
Naruto despises Obito for his Straw Nihilist views, but as he works to finally separate him from the tailed beasts, all of his emotions and memories come flooding in with them. Naruto experiences visions of the man's past, his dreams of becoming Hokage, his mourning Rin's death, and is genuinely moved to tears over Obito's loss.
Hashirama Senju, the First Hokage, actually sympathizes with his Evil Former Friend Madara Uchiha, believing that everything Madara has done is simply his way of lashing out over his brother's death. As a result, Hashirama is one of the very few people in the entire series who doesn't find Madara too much of a bastard to tolerate.

Fullmetal Alchemist:
After Envy's defeat, Ed expresses pity for it after realizing that Envy is, well, envious of humanity's capacity to form friendships and support one another. Envy is utterly humiliated that Ed pities it before more-or-less admitting that Ed was right, breaking the homunculus before it kills itself by shattering its stone.
Father's final fate in the anime is portrayed as more of an Alas, Poor Villain than it is in the manga, where it comes across as karmic justice. This is further established by the addition of a new scene shown after his death, where Hohenheim expresses some pity for his old nemesis.

Loved and Lost: Despite all the cruelties he puts everyone through, the heroes, especially the three alicorn princesses, are saddened in the epilogue that they were unable to redeem Princess Cadance's all along rotten cousin Prince Jewelius before he received his well-earned end in the teeth of the vengeful Changelings.
When Commander Hildread is defeated, Shining Armor feels sorry for the mare who hates him, for despite being sadistic and delusional, she does believe in keeping Equestria safe through extreme methods.

Played with in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard as Jack Baker expresses sympathy for Eveline, essentially a living bio-weapon with the appearance of a little girl and later an elderly woman, despite Eveline having infected his entire family and used mind-control to force them to torture and kill. He tells Ethan that's all she wants is a family. Ethan, on the other hand, has little sympathy for her and places all blame on her, instead expressing his sympathy for Jack and his ill-fated family.

After Aizen's defeat in A Protector's Pride, Ichigo discuses the villain's motivations with Urahara. He even admits that as two immortal beings incapable of touching anyone but each other, they might have become friends eventually, which he suggests is why Aizen tried not to cross the Moral Event Horizon with him. Ichigo also ponders the depths of Aizen's despair given that his final form had three Hollow holes.note The hole in a Hollow's chest is represents the despair they feel over their situation

Harry Potter:
While learning about Voldemort's Back Story, Harry is so merciful that he expresses a twinge of sympathy when Dumbledore reveals that his mother chose to die in childbirth, rather than save her life with magic and raise him alone. Dumbledore doesn't share the same feeling and shows the belief that Voldemort didn't suffer at all emotionally and it was just his own inhumane nature that made him what he is. Seeing as Harry is himself an orphan who was bullied worse than anything we see happen to Voldemort as a child (nothing much really considering that he was the one shown to bully and intimidate everyone around him and enjoying it), Harry should by that logic have just as easily become as bad rendering by his mere existence, on the other end of the spectrum, the whole point moot.
Harry's hatred for Draco is replaced with pity after the events of Book 6 and seeing how badly he has been caught up in his father's schemes and became a pawn of his father's master. He even saves Draco's life in the last book and Narcissa repays the favor.

Attack on Titan is filled with sympathetic villains, and the heroes are often conflicted over realizing they really aren't that different.
Eren and Armin express sympathy towards Annie Leonhart, wondering what would drive a person to do such terrible things.
Jean and Connie both express sympathy towards Bertolt, and his Tears of Remorse are enough to shake Mikasa out of her murderous Unstoppable Rage. Ymir later expresses her sympathy towards Reiner and Bertolt, stating she's the only person that understand their situation.
Hange ends up feeling sympathy towards Pastor Nick, and later Djel Sanes after realizing both genuinely thought of their actions are Necessarily Evil.
Eren brings up this trope when he talks to Reiner for the first time in four years. Having spent time in enemy territory, Eren has realised that people inside the walls and across the ocean are all the same. He says that he understands what Reiner went through when he and his friends attacked the walls, and has essentially forgiven Reiner as an individual, but still resents his enemies, namely the nation of Marley, who he'd come to destroy.

In season 10 of Red vs. Blue, the Reds and Blues spend the entire season trying to take down the Director and even fight an army of Tex robots to get to him. When Carolina and Church finally reach him, however, Carolina finds him so broken and miserable that she can't bring herself to kill him. This may have more to do with him being a terrible father and her allowing herself to let go of her own demons than actually granting him mercy, but it is certainly an example of this when he asks her to leave him her pistol and she does so with barely a word.

The Dresden Files: Part of the job description for Knights of the Cross. The knights' main enemy are humans who have partnered with sealed demons, and bargained for power. The knights make every effort they can to convince these humans to give up the power and the coin it's sealed in. The sympathy is far from unjustified, either, as one of the knights used to be one of those enemies.
Also includes Marcone, the crime lord of Chicago, once Harry learns what drove him to create his criminal empire. Harry may not like the man, what he does, or how he does it, but he does appear to respect him and understand 'why' he does it.

In Season 5 of Supernatural, Lucifer tries this multiple times: with Sam at the beginning of the season after appearing as Jess, Sam's dead girlfriend, with Dean when Zachariah sends him into the future, and with Castiel in "Abandon All Hope..." while he has Cas trapped in a ring of holy fire. Subverted in that none of these attempts work. Dean even name-drops the trope when calling Lucifer out on his "sympathy for the Devil crap". He does succeed when he pulls this on Nick to get him to say yes, since he couldn't get Sam—the episode itself was aptly named "Sympathy for the Devil".

24: In Season 7, Jack and Renee corner Tony Almeida just as he is about to kill Alan Wilson one of the major figures responsible for killing David Palmer, Michelle Dessler, and her and Tony's unborn son. They are both forced to shoot him to save Wilson. However, both of them clearly heard Tony crying about his unborn son beforehand. As the FBI agents take Tony away, he yells at Jack in anger and berates him for letting the bad guys get to this point. While Jack's reaction to the whole thing is hard to tell (at least partially because he is severely suffering from the pathogen weapon infection and is close to death at this time), Renee is clearly saddened and utterly horrified. She further demonstrates these feelings when she bitterly tells Wilson that she blames him for Larry Moss' death, even though Tony was the one who actually killed Larry as part of his cover to gain Wilson's trust.

The Powerpuff Girls are sometimes shown to take pity on some of their villains. Semi justified at times since they are naive little girls, and many of said villains are rather pitiful at times. This is especially prominent with the Amoeba Boys, who are so hopeless at being evil they actually try to teach them how to commit crimes.

An ambiguous case appears in Lex Luthor: Man of Steel. After the events of the series, Lex Luthor confronts Superman, who looks as if he's barely restraining himself from attacking Luthor, and delivers "The Reason You Suck" Speech about how everyone in Metropolis wanted to see Toyman be killed for his (suspected) actions, and how the fact that Superman in fact rescued him will be enough to turn people against him. He doesn't say anything, but for just one panel Superman's angry expression disappears and he looks at Luthor with sadness. It's never made clear whether Luthor's speech has hit a nerve or whether Superman, for just a moment, pities Luthor for his nihilistic and ultimately bleak view of humanity.

In Tokyo Mew Mew, the Mew Mews learn that their enemies once lived on earth, but were forced to leave when the environment shifted, taking refuge on a world that was inhospitable. They returned, only to find that the humans are polluting it, and seek to kill all the humans and reclaim Earth. Zakuro says it's understandable that they would be upset over what is happening to what was once their planet, but points out that it doesn't justify their crimes.

It's a staple for Solid Snake to relate to his opponent during his or her post-Boss Battle dying speech.
However, this is averted in the final game, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, where Old Snake is too tired to give a crap. Drebin instead fills him in on the Beauty and the Beast Unit's backstories if he defeats them non-lethally, relating the emotionally-scarring situations that made them the way they were. Snake actually tells Drebin once that he doesn't care about such ridiculous sob stories, but Drebin keeps talking anyway.
Played straight with Rose, however, who finds said backstories absolutely heartbreaking; she even states that Liquid is truly a heartless monster for forcing such broken people to fight, remarking that they'll eventually break down and be completely useless. Snake agrees with her on all points, but also points out that, since they're nuts and thus not fighting at their full effectiveness, he has an advantage.

This comes up occasionally in The Walking Dead, which is understandable, considering that most "villains" are just people trying to survive.
The man who kidnaps Clementine in the fourth episode of the The Walking Dead Season One, only referred to as The Stranger, is revealed to be soft-spoken and calm, and his only reason for taking Clementine away from Lee is because she would tell him over her walkie talkie about the morally questionable things that her group has done, and he, a recent widower and grieving father, thought he could take care of her better. Not to mention that the station wagon your group steals from earlier in the season was his, and when his wife, who already blamed him for the accidental death of their son, found out that all their food was gone, she took their daughter and left, only for The Stranger to find them dead in the road a day later. When he lists off the more unsavory things that Lee has done to others over the course of the season, he may have some valid concerns about the things you're exposing the young Clementine to.
Marlon from The Walking Dead Season Four counts as this at least somewhat. After he admits everything he's done and is subsequently shot by AJ, everyone at Ericson unanimously condemns his having given away Sophie and Minnie to The Delta, impulsively killing Brodie, and trying to frame Clementine for it after locking her away with Brodie's walker. But then you actually get to the Delta and see what they're like, you would be forgiven for empathizing with Marlon, a young man tasked making all the major decisions, by himself, for a group of kids abandoned and left alone by their caretakers, being faced with an armed militia of adults demanding that he give two up two of his friends to save all of the other kids. He owns up to what he did, admits that he's been a piece of shit, and tries to give up peacefully before he's killed. When confronted with how evil the Delta is, AJ, who shot Marlon in the head without a second thought, admits that he wasn't a monster.

However, this is averted in the final game, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, where Old Snake is too tired to give a crap. Drebin instead fills him in on the Beauty and the Beast Unit's backstories if he defeats them non-lethally, relating the emotionally-scarring situations that made them the way they were. Snake actually tells Drebin once that he doesn't care about such ridiculous sob stories, but Drebin keeps talking anyway.
Played straight with Rose, however, who finds said backstories absolutely heartbreaking; she even states that Liquid is truly a heartless monster for forcing such broken people to fight, remarking that they'll eventually break down and be completely useless. Snake agrees with her on all points, but also points out that, since they're nuts and thus not fighting at their full effectiveness, he has an advantage.

Towards the end of Yggdra Union, Kylier tells the main characters that she can't hate Nessiah and only feels sorry for him for what he's been through—she's been in his head, and has seen how he was thrown out of Asgard for refusing to fight in Ragnarok, after which he was put through so much trauma that the only support for his sanity was the chance for revenge. (This is after he resurrects her and forces her mind-controlled body to try to kill her love interest solely to power up his sword, by the way, and Kylier isn't what you could call easygoing.) Nessiah's death scene and the side materials, which fleshed out his backstory considerably, evoke this reaction in many a player, too.
The same goes for the Imperial Army starting in chapter seven, where the game's Gray-and-Grey Morality becomes blatant. Especially after Gulcasa's breakdown at hearing his little sister is dead.

AJCO:
At the end of the Silo mini-arc, Egg had plenty of chances to kill A_J - who had given her plenty of reasons to want to kill her. When A_J first gave her the bullet for the pistol, making the implications very clear, Egg could have shot her and saved herself from having to be expelled into the irradiated terrain above, but she didn't. And then when A_J ran out after her following a My God, What Have I Done? moment she still didn't shoot her, instead guarding her while she slept.
It should be noted that Egg feels sympathy for pretty much everyone, and has acknowledged in her diary that this will probably wind up getting her killed one day.

Scorpius of Farscape fits this trope very well. He pursues Crichton throughout the second season for his knowledge of how to use wormholes. By the end of the third season however, Crichton genuinely considers giving it to him when he comes to understand Scorpius' motivations, though in the end he chooses not to.

In Kung Fu Panda, Master Shifu faces Tai Lung when the latter makes his way to the Jade Palace. During their battle, Tai Lung angrily calls out Shifu for pushing him to train so hard his bones cracked, filling his head with dreams of becoming the Dragon Warrior, and turning his back on him when Oogway denied him the Dragon Scroll. Exhausted and beaten physically and emotionally, Shifu acknowledges the part he played in Tai Lung's descent and apologizes for failing him. Unfortunately, Tai Lung just wants the Scroll.

Appears as a conversation option in Mass Effect. Shepard, after discovering that Saren has become a victim of Sovereign's Indoctrination, can remark to Liara that s/he feels sorry for Saren.
For similar reasons, The Illusive Man can prove to be a deeply tragic character in Mass Effect 3, further bolstered by the temporary alliance Shepard and he had in Mass Effect 2, trying to do what he believes to be the best things for what happen to be all of the worst reasons.

Steven Universe. In the episode "Earthlings", long-time villain Jasper becomes corrupted and slowly loses her sanity. During this, she reveals how lonely and insecure she actually is, as she states that "Nobody I fuse with ever wants to stay" (referring to Lapis and the Corrupted Gem she fused with earlier). Steven tries to heal her, but she furiously refuses his help, eventually fully corrupting and being poofed by Peridot. The part where this trope applies is where Amethyst walks forward with a sorrowful look and falls to her knees next to Jasper's gem, before delivering one of the most tear-jerky lines in the show so far.

The Incarnations of Immortality novel For Love of Evil tells the events of the previous six books, all from Satan's point of view. It definitely plays this trope well, showing both how Parry became Satan through evil he performed, how effectively he evokes evil (it is his job) yet how, secretly, is actually a very good man.

Johan Faust VIII from Shaman King is first presented as a ruthless, cruel, and slightly insane antagonist. He gets a fair bit of sympathy when it's revealed that his fairy tale romance with his wife Eliza was cut short like an ironic Greek tragedy, leaving him a broken man. Anna actually recruits him as the team medic in exchange for Anna summoning Eliza's spirit. Having his beloved wife back mellows him out to the point that he's a valued teammate, if still crazy.

In Thundercats 2011, the Lizards are actually given an understandable motive for siding with Mumm-Ra. Under the reign of the Cats' kingdom Thundera, most of the arable and prosperous lands are controlled by the Cats while the other species are left to starve and are often captured and enslaved if they try to steal food for their people. This is explicitly stated by a Lizard who was captured and tormented by the Cats to Lion-O, which caused him to later defend the Lizards from an angry lynch mob.

Comes at the climax of Anya's Ghost. Unpopular high-school girl Anya has discovered that the teen ghost girl Emily she met in the bottom of a well, who claims that she was chased into the well by her family's murderer and fell to her death, actually was chased into the forest by an angry mob after locking the man who rejected her and his lover in their cabin and setting it ablaze, and fell to her death in the well. Emily claims that the two of them are the same in that they both are selfish when it comes to getting what they want, whether it be love or good grades or popularity, but Anya pulls her back down into the well by dropping one of Emily's bones into the hole. When Emily takes over her own skeleton and drags herself out, Anya pauses, stops running away, and admits to Emily that they actually are similar, but only because they assume the people they're envious of have perfect lives, despite not being able to know what's actually going on inside someone else's mind. She tenderly tells Emily that what she wants, the chance to live again vicariously through Anya, doesn't even exist. Emily sheds silent tears and dissipates herself into the night sky.

One good example in Gundam SEED is when Mu La Flaga, resident Ace Pilot and Big Brother Mentor actually expresses some sympathy for Omnicidal Maniac Rau Le Creuset. It's worth noting that La Flaga is the only person in the whole series who seems to understand Le Creuset's motivations, let alone sympathise with him, while still of course, agreeing that he needs to be stopped. Sharing the same Abusive Dad may have helped.

Several characters for Gollum. In The Hobbit, Bilbo takes pity on him and doesn't kill him when he has a chance, despite Gollum trying to kill and eat Bilbo. Frodo and Sam, who initially feel no pity, both develop compassion for Gollum after they've experienced the burden of bearing the Ring and are able to imagine what five hundred years of that would do to a person. Especially poignant with Sam, who's spent most of the book (understandably) regarding Gollum as a vile, treacherous little creature who deserves no sympathy.

Yuya of Yu Gi Oh ARCV is pretty empathetic of other people, given his role as an entertainer. Many of the villains are Child Soldiers, or victims that live their lives by the whims of the villains, so Yuya tries to bring them joy and entertainment. This is most notable during the Battle Beast arc, where he encourages the titular Beast to turn against his oppressors and live a peaceful life, without suffering.
And invoked by Yuri: he tells Asuka about his Friendless Background, and how he became the way he is through the Professor's guidance. Asuka, realizing how much pain he is in, spends a portion of their duel offering an olive branch to him. It's subverted when Yuri reveals that he's genuinely an unrepentant monster, and laughs at Asuka for falling for his trick. He specifically tried to make her feel sympathy for him, just so he can break her down and show how bad he is.

In Gundam SEED Destiny Antivillainous Big Bad Chairmain Gilbert Durandal also expresses some sympathy for Le Creuset, and seems to be quite upset over the fact that he couldn't save him. Similarly, his henchmen, Shinn Asuka and Rey Za Burrel are two of the only characters in-show to feel sorry for the Extended, a trio of Sociopathic Soldiers who work for rival Big Bad Lord Djibril.

Raoul Silva in Skyfall. During his confrontation with M where he reveals his Tragic Villain backstory, when he says "You betrayed me," Bond looks away from Silva and gazes intently at M. After Silva has a mini-meltdown where he reveals his cyanide-induced deformity (for which he also blames M), M leaves and Bond turns to follow, but slowly and hesitantly, suggesting he doesn't entirely want to leave Silva alone. After he rejoins M, he stares silently at her until she explains why she "betrayed" Silva. According to Daniel Craig on the DVD special features, under better circumstances Bond would have rather let Silva live and get therapy.
M, for her part, is visibly shaken after Silva's big reveal and her explanation is tinged with melancholy. Later in the film, as they are lying in wait for Silva's final attack, she says, "I fucked this up, didn't I?" While Bond assures her she was just doing her job, he doesn't go so far as to tell her she did the right thing.

Batman: The Animated Series: Batman is certainly capable of empathizing with adversaries with more tragic backstories, though he doesn't let it stop him from preventing their schemes if they are endangering the lives of others. This is most notable when he sees a recording of what happened to Victor Fries and his wife.
It's telling that, especially compared to his more campy or Darker and Edgier incarnations, this Batman actually does seem to want to reform his Rogues Gallery rather than simply beat them down over and over, displaying a heavy amount of this trope. That's why Joker tweaks him so bad; rather than having a tragic backstory (Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy) or being legitimately, untreatably insane (Firefly, Riddler and his obsessiveness), the Joker seems to be in complete control of his faculties and just sees the world as a big playground and every other person is simply a cheap toy to be played with and discarded. For him, the only one who is really a devil who didn't deserve any sympathy, and yet he still gives it whenever possible.
In Trial, it was outright stated that Batman and most of his Rogues Gallery were most likely Not So Different: Deeply troubled individuals who reacted to great hardship by putting on a mask and lashing out. The big difference being that Batman put on his mask and lashed out against crime, while the villains put on a mask and lashed out at society.

Priestess Meden and General Gong Hawkeye of Patapon. Gong's your enemy, yes, but - all things considered - he's also a likeable fellow who certainly strikes a chord with Meden. He tries reasoning with you before he goes to battle, he mourns his fallen comrades, he tries to prevent Queen Karma from selling her soul to the demons and in the end he faces your army alone in a heroic last stand. It's very cruel that you have to kill him to progress in the game.
In Patapon 2, Gong becomes your ally.

Both in-story and out-of-story with Mayella Ewell, "the loneliest person in the world," in To Kill a Mockingbird. This is particularly true if you happen to catch one easy-to-miss remark, spoilered here because it has the most impact in context: "She said she never kissed a man before, and she might as well kiss a nigger. She said what her pa do to her don't count." Also, she pretty much has to raise her family by herself, and she has no idea what a friend is. She raises a few plants which are pretty much the only thing she can truly call hers. It's really pretty sad.

In The Wolf Chronicles, there's a moment where Kaala notices how DavRian looks sad and lonely when seeing TaLi and BreLan happy together, and she sympathizes with him since she knows what it's like to be totally alone. With the look that crosses his face next, however, she reminds herself that he's alone because he's a hateful person, not the other way around.

Mostly subverted by the main heroes in The Dreamstone, there is very little to sympathise about Zordrak, and his minions the Urpneys, though far more sympathetic, are dealt with indiscriminately. Spildit however, naively converses and even attempts to help Sgt Blob's team at times. At one point they even sympathise with each other after Urpgor once again chews the squad out and steals Spildit's leaf.

In Wakfu, Yugo cannot bring himself to finish off Nox after he sees Nox shedding tears after his plan to Set Right What Once Went Wrong ends in utter failure and allows the defeated villain to leave peacefully. Averted in season two; Yugo feels no sympathy for Qilby the Traitor after hearing his twisted reasons for destroying worlds to fuel his own selfish desires and imprisons him in an empty void. Played straight again in the manga, when Yugo admits that he feels guilty that he left Qilby to that horrible (though justified) fate but is told because of him feeling Sympathy for the Devil is what makes him a good king.

After going through a Trauma Conga Line with his son dying, his body being frozen, and a couple rounds with the monster Destoroyah, he finally reaches the breaking point and melts down. Despite all of the destruction Godzilla has caused over the years, the human protagonists can't help but feel remorse for his passing.

In Devil May Cry 3, Arkham manages to use his status as Lady's father to manipulate her into moving into the place he needs her. He tries it again before the final battle when he's kicked out of the demon world by not being able to handle Sparda's power. He's near death at this point, so he loses and lets it slip that he saw absolutely nothing wrong with killing his wife to become part demon. Lady finally has enough. At the same time, Dante obviously feels similar about Vergil since the two are brothers. He doesn't feel good about having to fight him but has to due to Vergil's ambitions being dangerous towards humanity. He even cries for a moment when he meets back up with Lady.

At the end of Mother 3, where Dr. Andonuts traps Porky inside the Absolutely Safe Chamber, he notes that for all the horrible things he's done Porky was deep down an insecure and lonely little boy driven by the fact that everybody hated him.
That last one wasn't helped by him being a Jerkass since early childhood. While it explains the reason behind his actions, it hardly justifies them to any extent.

The DCU: First shown in Neil Gaiman's The Sandman and then later confirmed in his own title, Lucifer, the Prince of Hell, is actually not that bad a guy once you get to know him. Sure, he's bitter about how God's treated him over the last several billion years, he's arrogant, he's a bit of an asshole, but he's not the soul-stealer Christianity and Islam would have you believe he was.

Ganondorf in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, definitely, in keeping with the "wind" theme of the game:
Link and Zelda show pity for the alternate timeline version of Ganondorf, in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, after his death; this is somewhat strange, given how this Ganondorf is portrayed. While we know from Wind Waker that both final versions of Ganondorf were originally out to save his people, this version never regains his sanity and remains a Big Bad, despite similar circumstances of imprisonment. Needless to say, he's not intended to be sympathetic.
After Link apparently kills Ganondorf in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Zelda says he was a pitiful man who could not control the power of the gods and met an ignoble end as a result.

The man who kidnaps Clementine in the fourth episode of the The Walking Dead Season One, only referred to as The Stranger, is revealed to be soft-spoken and calm, and his only reason for taking Clementine away from Lee is because she would tell him over her walkie talkie about the morally questionable things that her group has done, and he, a recent widower and grieving father, thought he could take care of her better. Not to mention that the station wagon your group steals from earlier in the season was his, and when his wife, who already blamed him for the accidental death of their son, found out that all their food was gone, she took their daughter and left, only for The Stranger to find them dead in the road a day later. When he lists off the more unsavory things that Lee has done to others over the course of the season, he may have some valid concerns about the things you're exposing the young Clementine to.

In The Fairly OddParents, the episode "Dream Goat!" double subverts this. Initially, Timmy thinks it's cool that Vicky got the blame for something he did; any second thoughts get drowned out by all the perks and popularity he gets for his "heroism." However, his subconscious is wracked with guilt over the whole thing, which leads to the dream wishing, so on some level, he does feel bad for her. Played straight with Wanda, who is the only one to point out how unfair the situation is to Vicky.

However, her father can't bear to be the cause of so many deaths and thus dies to bring all those Charmcaster sacrificed back to life. Charmcaster is so heartbroken over this that Ben and co. agree not to arrest her for her actions out of pity, felt particularly by Charmcaster's chief nemesis Gwen, who keeps this attitude up in the following series, Omniverse, hoping to help her redeem herself through The Power of Friendship someday.

Josh from Until Dawn is tormenting everyone who came to the cabin because their cruel prank caused his sisters to run out of the cabin in shame, leading to their deaths. You sympathize with him because of how unlikable some of the characters are for that... but also because Josh has gone mad, both because of his sisters' deaths and also because he's been struggling long-term as it is with severe mental illness, implied to be depression and/or possibly schizophrenia, only exacerbated by the grief and stress of their disappearances, to the point that by the time the game begins, he's sort of "given up" on trying to take care of and not isolate himself. Also, no one was actually in danger from his scheme, but he didn't even know of the Wendigoes...

In Ikemen Sengoku, several routes have the characters feel this way about Tragic Villain Kennyo. Shingen feels this because he used to be best friends with Kennyo; Masamune and Mitsunari because they (along with the main character) recognize that there's still some humanity left in Kennyo; and Kenshin because his own traumatic past and internal struggle between his nobler and darker sides make him Not So Different from Kennyo.

Blaze Of Glory: Caleb Hammer spent a long time chasing after Kid Colt because he murdered a sheriff. During the series, Colt also murders some of Hammer's comrades in anger, and they are not on good terms come Issue #4. But even so, that doesn't mean Caleb wanted him to go the way he did. This borders on inversion, since Caleb is an Inspector Javert Hero Antagonist, while Colt is just a man who lets his anger get him in trouble with the law and actually might be the least rough-around-the-edges out of the seven protagonists aside from Two-Gun.

Fairy Tail: The conversation in Chapter 340 between Mavis Vermillion and Zeref implies that at one point, the two were close enough to know rather uncommon knowledge about one another; for example, Mavis knowing that Zeref is a Death Seeker, and Zeref referring to humans as if Mavis isn't one of them. She also apparently willingly let him stay on Sirius Island with her, indicating that despite Zeref's very well earned reputation, she seemed to genuinely feel bad for the guy... up until his rather unnerving threat about wiping out humanity, anyway.
Fairy Tail Zero and chapters 449-450 elaborate a bit more on their relationship. Mavis was the only one to ever show Zeref kindness and recognize him for what he was: a kind but troubled man under a truly horrific curse. When Mavis became similarly cursed, she realized she was the only one who could ever truly relate to him, and as a result they fell in love. But the curse would never allow Zeref to be happy, and killed her in spite of her immortality, causing Zeref's true Start of Darkness. Mavis did not just sympathize with the devil — she loved the man who became the devil, and at the same time recognizes it was her death that made him the devil in the first place.

By the end of Heaven's Feel, Shirou realizes that he no longer hates Kotomine. He actually kind of likes him. In fact, he's more similar to Kotomine than to his own hero figure, Kiritsugu. In the end, there's only a fight to the death because Kotomine is following his 'ideal' way of living to the end, and Shirou just wants to save his girlfriend Sakura. Saving the world is a perk. Kind of sucks that he was born so broken.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
In the episode "Twilight's Kingdom – Part 2", the Mane Five are clearly horrified when Tirek betrays Discord and violently sucks his magic dry. Note that this is after Discord betrayed them; there's not even an ounce of biting sarcasm in Applejack's voice when she returns an Ironic Echo over his backstab.
A similar (though not quite as drastic) situation occurs in "Crusaders of the Lost Mark". After Diamond Tiara loses the election for class president, she seems genuinely upset, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders decide to make sure she's OK even though Diamond's never given them anything but nastiness and trouble. The feeling becomes even stronger when they discover that Diamond Tiara's mother Spoiled Rich is a cruel, nasty social climber who only cares about her position in Ponyville's elite circles. The CMC are shocked and admit that they feel bad for Diamond Tiara.
Even after all the evil (and unforgivable if you ask some of the fanbase) stunts she pulled, Twilight Sparkle still pitied Starlight Glimmer after learning her entire motivation was being left a Broken Bird after her close childhood friend moved away. Twilight's forgiveness and offer to help her rediscover the meaning and value of friendship is what triggers Starlight's Heel–Face Turn.

By the end of Monster, Nina finally brings herself to forgive her twin brother and the titular "monster" of the series, Johan Liebert, for all of the things he had done to her and others, while Dr. Kenzo Tenma is persuaded by Nina and Inspector Lunge to save Johan's life for a second time (after attempting to correct the "mistake" of saving Johan's life for much of the series by trying to kill him), and later visits him while he is (supposedly) unconscious in the hospital, reassuring him that his long-lost mother loves him very much.

In the end, he kills Maul only for the pain he could cause if allowed near Luke, not the pain he has already caused, and even performs Cradling Your Kill.

In the second series of Horatio Hornblower, Horatio has to contend with the paranoid and insane Captain Sawyer, who fosters indiscipline, has a midshipman repeatedly beaten unconscious, and puts Horatio into a position where he's certain to fall asleep on watch (a hanging offense). Although Horatio helps remove him from command, he also expresses sympathy because Sawyer's long years of genuine courage through grueling warfare have caught up with him in a terrible way.

In Gundam SEED Destiny Antivillainous Big Bad Chairmain Gilbert Durandal also expresses some sympathy for Le Creuset, and seems to be quite upset over the fact that he couldn't save him. Similarly, his henchmen, Shinn Asuka and Rey Za Burrel are two of the only characters in-show to feel sorry for the Extended, a trio of Sociopathic Soldiers who work for rival Big Bad Lord Djibril.

Completely subverted in Hunter × Hunter when Gon and Killua are captured by members of the Phantom Troupe. When he realizes that one of them is grieving for the recent death of his friend, he become enraged at them, because by his own bizarre morality, their horrific actions throughout the arc would've at least been understandable if they were your standard self-centered villains with a complete Lack of Empathy, but the fact that they would grieve for the loss of one of their own right after coldly killing dozens of people made them less sympathetic in his eyes.

Elvis in God Hand. He's implied to eat people, yet what we see is an overall nice guy who punishes his men for disrespecting the dead and has a lot of similarities to Gene.

A one-shot story by Jim Starlin has Daredevil and Black Widow go up against a serial killer named Rose who has murdered at least 40 telepaths. When Rose captures Natasha, it is revealed that Rose is a telepath herself and that as a child she was sexually abused by her father while her mother refused to believe her. Eventually, Rose's mother was killed by her father which caused Rose to snap and use her powers to make him commit suicide. When she discovered other telepaths existed she began a killing spree because she "wanted to be special". Despite the depravity of Rose's crimes, the fact that one of her victims was an old friend of Natasha's and that Natasha herself kills Rose, the Russian spy cannot help but shed tears over how a little girl was twisted and broken into becoming such a monster. That Rose was sharing her memories with Natasha telepathically might have contributed to Natasha's reaction.

In Icewind Dale 2, the spirit of Mother Egenia and Iselore are the only characters who express sympathy for the Big Bads Isair and Madae. Egenia was the one who raised the twin cambions after their birth mother was Driven to Suicide. Her spirit mourns her children's turn to darkness but recognizes that they have to be stopped. Iselore was the one who named the twins when they were born. He recalls with shame his warning to Egenia that "they are forged in evil and nothing but evil can come from them!" and wonders if this was a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy.

In the Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog comic series, Sonic is shown to feel visible guilt when a series of defeats reduces Dr. Eggman to an insane babbling wreck. Granted this comes to an end when he regains his stability, and all his ruthlessness and more, shortly afterwards.
Likewise, when Fiona starts crying and denying that she trusts and depends on Scourge, Sonic just walks away with a pitying look on his face, muttering, "Keep telling yourself that."

The Order of the Stick:
Despite all that Nale has put his twin through over the course of the series, Elan is still sad when Tarquin kills Nale, wondering whether the circumstances of their childhoods led to such different outcomes for the two brothers.
Haley also feels sorry for Crystal by the end of their battle in Tinkertown, given how Bozzok has controlled her. That doesn't stop her from dropping Crystal into a volcano.
After Redcloak reveals that he's killed Tsukiko, the Monster In The Darkness remarks that what Tsukiko wanted, to be loved, wasn't so bad, but what's really sad for him is that the rest of Team Evil doesn't seem to care.

Yet he acknowledges in the sequel, The Moat around Murcheson's Eye (US Title: The Gripping Hand), that he pities them nonetheless as they are cruelly trapped by their own biology: "They die in agony if they can't become pregnant".

A version of this occurs in Raymond E. Feist's The Riftwar Cycle. The dark elves of the setting, also known as moredhel or the Brotherhood of the Dark Path, are generally portrayed as evil and sadistic, with no morals and a love of torturing their victims before killing them. A huge invasion by the moredhel and their allies is the main plot of one book, A Darkness At Sethanon. In spite of that, the Big Bad of that book, the charismatic moredhel leader Murmandamus, is revealed to be a Pantathian (snake-person) priest in disguise who doesn't care about the moredhel and only wants the Lifestone below the city of Sethanon, an artifact that supposedly has the power to revive the Pantathians' Valheru mistress and revered goddess. On top of it all, the power to use said Lifestone comes from the life forces of all the people who died near the priest, the bulk of which is moredhel soldiers who died in a careless siege against a very well-defended fortress, thus making the moredhel the ones who were most cruelly used and manipulated, resulting in literal Sympathy For The Devil, or for the Dark Elf at least.
On top of that, two other books - Krondor: The Betrayal, which deals with events ten years after the invasion, and Honored Enemy, which is set before the invasion - feature moredhel protagonists and switches to moredhel perspective for a change, also making them a bit more complex and multi-faceted rather than the standard 'evil and sadistic' image. Additionally, in Feist's universe dark elves are really the same as light elves, just with a different culture, as opposed to being a different race, as in many other settings.

In Nier, Popola and Devola reveal themselves to be soulless artificial humans and the closest thing the game has to a Big Bad and fight you. Things take a tragic turn when Devola is slain. Popola is distraught because she can't bear to be alone. Nier pauses and begs her to stop fighting. Popola snaps, claiming there's no way she can stop after her own sister was cut down in front of her. The boss fight then continues, the action packed boss theme of the first round of the fight replaced with a tragic reprise.

Elfen Lied: Even though Lucy killed his father and little sister in a jealous rage, Kouta, despite openly admitting that he can't forgive her actions, can't actually bring himself to hate Lucy herself no matter what and would rather get her to stop killing than seek revenge.

In It, this is one of the reasons why Mike can't quite bring himself to kill Henry Bowers even in self-defense. Mike pities him for having grown up under someone like Butch Bowers, who naturally heavily influenced Henry's way of thinking and was partially responsible for his son's racism and jerkassery.

In Dissidia Final Fantasy, upon defeating Kefka for the final time, Terra feels that his urge to destroy was because he was incapable of finding anything to live for save for destruction and that he was trying to find something to fill his "broken heart".
Many of the chosen of Cosmos appear to feel this way towards their designated foes. The Warrior of Light openly admitted feeling pity towards Garland. Zidane never stopped reaching out to Kuja. And despite his claims of hating his fathers guts, Tidus once gave Jecht a potion so they could fight on equal terms. In fact, it might be easier to list off the number of heroes who don't feel some form of sympathy for the villains.

Dragon Ball Z:
During the Frieza Saga, Goku ends up feeling this way towards Vegeta after the latter dies tearfully begging him to defeat Frieza and avenge the Saiyan race; he even takes the time to give Vegeta a proper burial.
After Majin Buu goes on a rampage after killing Babidi, Goku states sadly that this may be the only thing Buu knows how to do. Piccolo quickly rebukes it, stating that Buu's background does not excuse his actions. Piccolo is then proven wrong when Mr. Satan is able to reach out to Majin Buu and successfully befriend him and talk him into a Heel–Face Turn.
Goku also expresses this towards Kid Buu. He considers Buu a Worthy Opponent who's only so destructive because he doesn't understand loss, and says that while he has to kill Buu now for the universe's sake, he'd like for Buu to eventually come back as a good guy so they can have a proper fight.

In Assassin's Creed III, the Templars are given several sympathetic motivations for their plans and have justification unlike the previous games were they simple said they had the moral high ground, but simply used the order to gain more power. In almost all of their death scenes they come across more as Anti Villains than anything else. Considering the ending and what we know happen in the history books it may give you the feeling that it would've been better for them to succeed. It's even sadder when you find out that the Templars, just like the Assassins, were more or less Unwitting Pawns of Juno, the true villain of the series, manipulated into fighting a meaningless war.

Dead Rising has Cliff Hudson, a Shell-Shocked Veteran of the Vietnam War who snapped after watching his granddaughter get murdered by zombies and was lashing out at survivors under the delusion they were Vietcong guerrillas. Unlike every other psychopath in the game, Frank takes pity on Cliff after being given his family photo and hearing his Tear Jerker Last Words:

Nearly does in Robin Mask when he faces Kinnikuman Mariposa in Kinnikuman's Scramble for the Throne arc. Mariposa tells Robin about his past, in which he was forced into thievery due to poverty and Robin, who had never faced a foe with a Tragic Past before, couldn't bring himself to pile more defeat onto Mariposa. It took a reminder that Kinnikuman himself was a bigger Butt-Monkey than Mariposa ever was and overcame it without falling to evil before Robin could get back into the fight guilt-free.

Starting around season 3 of Babylon 5, Alfred Bester begins to head this way, bordering on Anti-Villain, due to us learning about more of his motivation and goals and discovering that his lover was taken by The Shadows and turned into a control unit for their ships. The only thing keeping him from going straight into Anti-Villain territory is the fact that he very obviously enjoys torquing with the good guys, Lyta Alexander in particular, along with his casual disregard for the Mundanes.

Comes up in the The Witcher games all the time, par for the course of the setting's Grey-and-Gray Morality. Sentient monsters usually aren't depicted as Always Chaotic Evil but more as non-malicious and occasionally conflicted individuals driven by the same needs and instincts as people. Some human characters also fit this: a very well-done example is the Bloody Baron from the third game, an alcoholic brute who oppresses the peasants under him (and used to beat his pregnant wife, which caused her to miscarry), but is also a human wreck too terrified to face the world sober and consciously tries to Pet the Dog with little acts of kindness whenever he can... because deep down, he knows he's a bad man and wants to be better, and would be if he wasn't also a very weak man as well.
