* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has a few:
** Game designer Jeff Kaplan has stated several times that he's a huge fan of Hanzo (whom is nearly-universally scorned by the community for attracting low-skill players to a high-skill hero), although this is quite possibly a joke in response to the community's outrage towards the character.
** Tracer, being the game's mascot, is often accused of having preferential treatment: she's, so far, gotten two animated shorts starring her (only Wintson and Widowmaker have gotten as much screentime), two comics (the event comics for Winter Wonderland and Uprising both focused on her - the only other characters to have gotten two comics are Ana and Torbjorn, and maybe Soldier: 76), and the most Legendary event skins of any other character in the game (one for the game's special Origins edition, two for the Summer Games, one for Winter Wonderland, one for Lunar New Year, one for Uprising, and one for the Anniversary Event). She's not as univerally spurned as, say, the aforementioned Hanzo, but the fact that she's received so much attention while other characters like Lucio, D.Va, and Zarya are relatively sidelined is seen as unfair to a good number of fans.

* GuestFighter [[Franchise/MortalKombat Scorpion]] in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' by virtue of being the mascot of studio Netherrealm. From the beginning when he became available to play, Scorpion was (initially) [[GameBreaker hideously overpowered]] thanks to his TeleportSpam abilities that makes him more powerful than all of the characters, including DC's mascots Superman and Batman. Players who purchased the season pass were especially angry that they were misled into purchasing 3 DC fighters and a ''Mortal Kombat'' character instead of 4 DC fighters. Even after getting nerfed and getting featured less in the marketing campaign, he's still hated by many fans for his very presence.

* ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'':
** Taimi has become this over the course of the living story. There is nothing she can't deduce with her superior intellect, no problem she can't solve by building a magical machine, and even though she is still just a child, the plot is frequently driven by the player character (and ostensible group leader) running around following the instructions she broadcasts. The only characters who ever seriously whether Taimi should be in that role are portrayed as unequivocally wrong and likely corrupt. Fan reaction to her has become increasingly negative, but the writers still can't seem to get enough of her and she is worked into any possible plotline.

** ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII XIII's]]'' Lightning could certainly qualify. She, like virtually the entire cast, are very flat characters. She isn't even the most central character to the story, being merely along-for-the-ride, and was only made the game's "poster child" because she had an "interesting" visual design. She has also be specifically stated to be nothing but a female [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]]. Which character did they choose to make the central focus of the series at large and promote to the status of Goddess? Why, Lightning of course. Is it any wonder her creator once proclaimed that he held a romantic love towards her?
