* Chiaki Nanami in Anime/DanganRonpa3. In VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2, she was a somewhat important supporting character, but she wasn't given more focus than anyone else in the game and was executed in the fifth chapter. In the anime, you'd think that every single thing that happened in ''Side:Despair'' was because of her. The rest of the class apart from [[BaseBreakingCharacter Nagito]] and [[TheWoobie Mikan]] are DemotedToExtra and spend a ridiculous amount of time CharacterShilling her, Chisa makes her class president, Hajime's motivation to become [[spoiler: Izuru Kamukura]] has been [[RetCon RetConned]] into being just about impressing Chiaki and being "worthy" of her (his final thoughts before the operation are even of her), Junko kidnaps Chiaki after she runs in after Chisa and puts her in a death maze to drive the rest of the class to despair while they are under MindRape and her death is [[{{Narm}} an incredibly melodramatic scene]] that doesn't fit in with the usual IronicDeath style of Dangan Ronpa executions, Chiaki's death is retroactively made the ''first'' execution instead of [[spoiler: Jin Kirgiri's]] as it was in [[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa the first game]] and anything else that was important to the plot of VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 (such as the Twilight Syndrome case, which was ''hugely'' important for Fuyuhiko, Peko and Mahiru) is hurriedly solved in the span of a single episode. ([[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot Especially grating because it would have been a brilliant chance to give Mahiru some more screen time since she died quite early on in the game.]]) It got to the point where even fans of the character started accusing Chiaki of being a CanonSue.

* Due to a BrokenBase over the subject, the fans of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' that dislike Bakugou accuse him of being such. Although he spends from the age of 4 to 15 bullying Midoriya, [[KarmaHoudini he never faces consequences for doing so]]. All students praise him for being such a good fighter and teachers are impressed by his abilities, after being saved, heroes still praise how big of a fighter he was in the first chapter. This really hit the fences when [[spoiler: he wins the School Sports Tournament, hence giving him the title of strongest freshman in U.A.]]. Other fans though point out he had a long list of ButtMonkey and even BadassInDistress moments and had a big piece of HumblePie ever since he entered U.A.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' gives us 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 at a point in the series when the characters have never even ''heard'' the term "Super Saiyan"), and always receives CharacterShilling in them as the greatest threat in existence. Then there's the fact that side media just keeps giving him more and more powerful Super Saiyan forms, to the point where he has his own unique form of Super Saiyan God[[note]]Because the versions Goku and Vegeta use require things Broly could never achieve on his own: a pure heart and a calm mind[[/note]], which is of course more powerful than Goku's version and is so strong it requires an epic-level AssPull to be beaten.

** 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 Whis, Beerus's assistant and mentor, who Beerus himself says is even stronger than him).

* ''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.]]
