Despite acting as a villain with the ambition to take over the world, Doflamingo is very grateful to his teammates and considers them like family.
This character’s camaraderie can be compared to the cohesion and unity of the Straw Hat Pirates. Even Doflamingo spends more time taking care of the crew members than Luffy.
Doflamingo’s esteem was demonstrated in the Punk Hazard Arc when he comforted Vergo in his final moments. Unlike other villains, he doesn’t denigrate or belittle the crew for failing.

Aside from his teammates, Kid doesn’t trust or show gratitude to anyone else. For example, although Luffy indirectly helped him escape from Udon prison, he did not receive a single thank you from Kid.
Besides, this character is also very proud and thinks to solve all problems by himself. Kid should have been grateful to the Samurai for their great support in the battle at Onigashima.

Tom may have died, but the legacy he left for Water Seven and the world will never be forgotten.
