Negan seems to enjoy his fair share of aggression, but let’s be honest, so does Rick. Negan’s methods as leader of the Saviors may have been extreme at times, but he did what he felt he had to in order to lead his people into the future. To be fair, Rick did attack the Savior outposts before Negan took a baseball bat to Glenn’s head.
As Rick’s antagonist, Negan is formidable, funny, and smart; he is the twisted jester of the zombie apocalypse. As a potential ally, Negan is engaging, funny, and smart. Negan is a perfect example of TWD portraying moral ambiguity at its best.

Everyone knows the biblical story of Lucifer, the archangel who was cast out for disliking his father’s creation/worldview. In early seasons, Supernatural saw the Winchester brothers battling antagonists from both Heaven and Hell, making biblical labels irrelevant in regard to good and evil.
During this time, Lucifer preached his position as a misunderstood outcast and victim of an indifferent father on more than one occasion. Mark Pellegrino’s emotional yet irreverent take on the character made him particularly entertaining up until his demise. However, recent Supernatural storylines could easily make the argument that Lucifer was not only right all along, but that he is the most relatable antagonist in the Supernatural universe.

As much as we love Michael Scott’s constant belittlement of Dunder Mifflin's human resources representative, the reality is that poor Toby’s life sucks. He may stifle Michael’s inappropriate fun, but he still always treats Michael like an adult and seems like a genuinely nice person, for the most part. Toby is the kid who is picked last for teams, never gets invited to parties, and has no luck on dating apps. His life is every Office fan's worst nightmare: working at Dunder Mifflin and never contributing anything meaningful to the story. But it is his pathetic nature that makes him relatable.
For anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of bullying, or had a bad day, or a bad year, Toby is there to make you feel better about your life as you marvel at the unhappiness in his.

When introduced to Boyd Crowder in Justified's pilot, “Fire in the Hole,” he is portrayed as a white supremacist who likes money and destruction. Thus, at first glance, he is not the most relatable character. But thanks to his chemistry with series protagonist/anti-hero US Marshal Raylan Givens and the complex history of Harlan County, KY, Crowder is depicted as a product of his environment.
After being shot, Crowder turns to religion to redeem himself; however, given the unforgiving nature of his world, he is driven back to his life of crime. Walton Goggins’ masterful performance paints Crowder as a character who uses his charisma and intellect to survive the only way he knows how: as an outlaw who isn't so different from his best friend, just on different sides of the law.
