When she was two years old, that little girl sat on my lap. That is when I swore to God I would rip the f*cking skin off of anyone who f*cking wronged her.

Villains who are the opposite of what many expect from an antagonistic "boss"; they genuinely care for another being. Whether it be paternal/maternal, romantic, or simply a "matter of principle", these villains will not only treat their minions well, but often go into a rage when their minions are threatened or harmed.

Sometimes, this can be because the minions are relations to the villain, the villain's lovers, friends, or (as mentioned above) the villain genuinely values those who aid them.

This is basically the polar opposite of both the Failure-Intolerant and the infamous "Bad Boss" archetype. However, some (in fact many) villains qualify for both, as they may be protective towards some and failure-intolerant towards others.
