* Elizabeth Wakefield of the ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh'' series and it's numerous [[SpinOff spinoffs]] is described at the beginning of ''every single book'' as studious, level-headed, etc. In other words, the "good" twin. And whatever plot plays out, she is always in the right or the heroine. Never mind that she's actually self-righteous, judgemental, and meddlesome.

** Stackpole has Corran Horn. The author repeatedly shoved Horn into the background of other authors stories, and in the case of the ''Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy'', completely subverted its tone in the ''I, Jedi'' book. He repeatedly has major lore characters (Wedge, Han, and Luke for starters) singing Horn's praises.

* Karen Traviss rears her head for the second time on this page [[Literature/HaloGlasslands with her]] [[Literature/HaloTheThursdayWar inclusions]] [[Literature/HaloMortalDictata to the]] ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' novels, this time with Admiral Parangonsky and Serin Osman. Usually, anything they say is right and is a mirror to Traviss' own beliefs, at the cost of shattering canon relationships, butchering how psychology works, and ignoring the military chain of command.

* Elizabeth Wakefield from the [[SweetValleyHigh Sweet Valley]] series is purported to be the good twin who is nice to everyone - but, more often than not, she comes off as a sanctimonious hypocrite. As such, many find her to be even worse than the allegedly bad twin, Jessica.

* Literature/VorkosiganSaga has Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan. Likeable in her two POV books she becomes much less so over the succeeding novels in which she is ''invariably'' loved and respected by all and has ''all'' the answers to any problem. And is never, ever called on her mindless hostility to Barrayaran customs and assumption Beta got it right.

* [[CreepyChild Renesmee]] from ''BreakingDawn''. Everyone who meets her loves her, despite the fact that she hasn't done anything other than be [[spoiler: Edward and Bella's half human/half vampire daughter with psychic powers]]. Many fans loathe her for [[SpotlightStealingSquad hijacking the story away from]] the OfficialCouple. Others hate her for her very existence [[ArtisticLicenseBiology defies biology]] ''and'' is a [[SeriesContinuityError direct contradiction]] to previous WordOfGod. And of course, [[spoiler: Team Jacob fans hate her for [[RelationshipSue other]] [[DieForOurShip reasons...]]]] It certainly doesn't help that it's obvious this is a motherhood fantasy with how thanks to her vampire nature, Renesmee's super-smart and beautiful and loved by everyone who meets her, but Bella doesn't have to deal with any of the gross/boring/hard parts of being a parent. Not only that, it looks very much like she and children who were turned into vampires have a supernatural ability to make people love them, but it's entirely accidental. The reader is supposed to take it as a given that vampire and half-vampire children, [[CanonSue Renesmee especially]], are just that lovable.
