* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has the cameo characters - characters intended to be alternate versions of characters from prior series, who began to appear over the course of the dimension-traveling later arcs. Of the five introduced, only Asuka is uncontroversially well-liked, and that's largely because [[FauxActionGirl she was the only one]] to ''not'' be a CreatorsPet. Crow was disliked for having been at best a BaseBreakingCharacter and SpotlightStealingSquad in his home series, Kaito and Edo were disliked for being [[InNameOnly completely out-of-character]] and having bad duels and incredibly rushed and poorly-done CharacterDevelopment, and even Jack, who was largely identical to his popular original counterpart, got hate for taking up far too much plot to the point of being more the rival than the supposed actual rival. Despite this, all four of them were given a massive amount of screentime and focus in a series with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a notoriously overstuffed cast]], to the point of pulling attention away from the show's own characters who had been there from the beginning. They even took up most of the screentime in the defeat of the final boss! Crow and Jack in particular are constantly shilled, have some of the strongest decks, star in the longest arc, and get to beat very important characters, with Jack going so far as to have the second-last Duel in the series. The fact that director Katsumi Ono also directed [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds their series]] [[SarcasmMode is likely unrelated.]]

** The first and newest (as of 2017) is Beerus, the "God of Destruction". Modeled after Creator/AkiraToriyama's second pet cat, Beerus is a ''massive'' OutsideContextProblem who completely breaks the mold of the original DBZ's cosmic hierachy by appearing as both a God ''and'' a power surpassing the heroes (while lesser gods such as the Kais and Kaioshins featured heavily, they were always supporting characters, as was Korin, the character based on Toriyama's first pet cat). He is a beneficiary of both TheWorfEffect (completely outclasses Super Saiyan 3 Goku in his movie, is shown having humiliated ''King Vegeta'' in backstory by using him as a footstool, and is shown being able to effortlessly defeat Great Ape Broly in ''VideoGame/DragonBallFusions''). He is also an enormous beneficiary of CharacterShilling, both in and ''out'' of story. In-story, Beerus's status as a God far eclipsing everything and everyone else before him is constantly emphasized, and to add in a bit of that Worf Effect flavor DBZ loves so much, past villains such as Frieza, King Cold and King Vegeta are all {{Retcon}}ned as being both aware ''and'' completely terrified of him. Out of story, creator Akira Toriyama is almost pugnacious [[http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/akira-toriyama-masako-nozawa-special-talk/ in interviews]], stating quite emphatically that Beerus is "the strongest in the universe" and that there can be "nothing higher" than him (despite this statement being explicitly contradicted by the existence of Beerus's teacher Whis, as well as StatOVision in the [[VideoGame/DragonballXenoverse Xenoverse]] [[VideoGame/DragonballXenoverse2 games]] showing Broly, the [[Anime/DragonBallGT GT villains]] and [[Anime/DragonBallZRevivalofF Golden Frieza]] all having power levels surpassing Beerus.
** Then we have Broly. Not so much for his anime appearances, where he's more of a BaseBreakingCharacter. However, post-DBZ he qualifies as of a [[http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/takao-koyama-battle-of-gods-blog-post/ 2013 interview]] of his creator Takao Koyama,, who criticized ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]]'' for the fact that the character of Beerus (the second BaseBreakingCharacter detailed above, who is beloved by Broly's haters in particular and hated by his fans in particular) wasn't as "scary" as Broly, and that the movie "reduced Broly to a pushover". Broly is particularly notorious for his roles in the videogames, where, despite being a CanonForeigner, he is almost always present, even in games like ''VideoGame/DragonBallZAttackOfTheSaiyans'' (which takes place several arcs before his first appearance), and always receives CharacterShilling in them as the greatest threat in existence. In a few, like ''Raging Blast 2'', he even gets new transformations or abilities just to keep him ahead.

Of course, some DBZ fans argue the Creator's Pet label better applies to Beerus himself for the way he is suddenly introduced as an OutsideContextProblem who massively eclipses the rest of the cast in power (along with his companion Whis, who is stronger than even him) but the same can be said for Broly himself, as well as a good chunk of the villains from the actual series (the only BigBad not introduced with a massive power lead over the heroes was Cell, for the record). More can be said of Broly and Beerus, but that invites FlameBait best left for elsewhere.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kon's canon modsoul background was rewritten to justify Nozomi's existence, give her Ukitake's unique EnergyAbsorption ability (but [[SetBonus stronger]]) and make her Kon's LoveInterest ([[SpotlightStealingSquad reducing]] Ichigo's role from MainCharacter to sidekick). Faster than even Ichigo's unique development, she took only about 36 hours to go from powerless to saving [[StoryBreakerPower Yamamoto's]] life from enemies too powerful for even him to defeat. For the [[{{Filler}} Invading Army arc]], the writers created Nozomi. Writers also broke their own rules for modsoul death (instantaneous reversion to pill-state) to give her a protracted HeroicSacrifice everyone could weep over.

** The first season initially led some fans to resent Suzaku for his MoralMyopia and nonsensical idealism that constantly got in Lelouch's way, with several believing the creators were somehow trying to favor him. However, this too was subverted in time: Suzaku was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap after a lot of suffering and he eventually came to abandon the more annoying parts of his idealism, which made him tolerable or even likable in the eyes of many detractors.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Some fans tend to view [[TheProtagonist Ash Ketchum]] as this. It usually has to do with the fact in 900+ episodes rather than just introduce a new protagonist in each region, they always have Ash show up, [[DemotedToExtra severely reduce the role of said region protagonists especially then their male]] in favor for Ash and hit the ResetButton his {{Badass}} and [[TookALevelInDumbass intelligence]] credentials, causing many ire from many fans, especially the older ones. It also doesn't help that it one point he would always battle scary Pokemon or villains using them and win and for the former always convince them to his side while hammering the notion that all Pokemon are NotEvilJustMisunderstood, but losing to the Pokemon leagues every time [[spoiler: the Unova and Kalos leagues being such infamous example.]] Needless to say its cause Ash to be a huge BaseBreakingCharacter within the fanbase.
