One asserted that a certain character was not evil. He was just monumentally greedy and selfish. (King Haggard from The Last Unicorn, btw.)
And the other asserted that certain characters were not evil for something they did. They were just vain.
Now, I can see an argument that vanity is not a major vice. It is not, however, a virtue; insofar as characters are vain, they are just a little evil. As witness that attention to appearance is only called vanity when it's deemed excessive.
The idea however that greed and selfishness are differentiated from evil makes you wonder what it would take to qualify.
