I wish I could take it all back. I honestly do. I honestly do wish I could take it all back. And not just cause I'm stranded in space. (I know who you are, mate! Yep. We're both in space.) Anyway, if I was ever to see her again, you know what I'd say? I'd say... I'm sorry! Sincerely. I am sorry that I was bossy... and monstrous... and... I am genuinelly sorry. The end.

Villains who feel sorry for their past actions but are not fully redeemed. Many of these villains would either redeem themselves or move on to another evil plan.

It is important to note that, with many Remorseful Villains, their remorse can eventually lead to their redemption (though this is not always the case).

A Pure Evil must not be added in this category, as they never feel bad for their wrongdoings and therefore have no empathy.
