* The Kingdom of Hoshido in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Being a beautiful {{Wutai}} land of plenty, filled with wise peace loving martial pacifists, and covered in a magical barrier stopping invaders. No one from there is ever portrayed badly, and always have the moral high ground, even when they're the enemy in the Conquest route. Hoshido also received a lot of StorybranchFavoritism. Getting a far better written and optimistic story, despite Nohr being advertised as the more complex story.

*** [[MostWritersAreHuman Humans]], especially [[SpotlightStealingSquad Stormwind]], have become this increasingly. Apart from the aforementioned shilling of Varian, most of the Alliance's efforts centre around Stormwind or its forces in some way. Humans also have the most different factions out of all the races, including the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Worgen]], making two playable human races in the game[[labelnote:*]]Actually three if you include the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Forsaken]], as all Forsaken players were canonically humans in life, and the Forsaken [=NPCs=] that are not either former humans or [[FrankensteinsMonster Abominations]] could probably be counted on two hands.[[/labelnote]] (though there are two playable elf races, the Night Elves and Blood Elves, these are on opposite sides of the war and there are still far more human factions). [[WordOfGod The dev team at Blizzard have even admitted]] that the Warlords or Draenor expansion was inspired partly by their desire to return to the 'humans vs orcs' roots of Warcraft.

**** And, because it's Orcs and Humans, Orcs have also more or less dominated the gameplay and lore, with most of ''Warlords of Draenor'' centering around them, and the general over-abundance of Orcs, especially compared to the one or two token tauren generally in any area.

** And then there's Lead Systems Designer, Greg "Ghostcrawler" Stret, and [[TierInducedScrappy Frost Mages]], which, throughout his entire reign, were either God-tier and flat-out the best DPS, end of discussion, or high tier. Tellingly, the first expansion where he's laid off and replaced with the more even-handed Brian Holinka, Frost mages imediately fell out of favor.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'': Milla Maxwell, though her exact amount of [[TheScrappy scrappiness]] is [[BaseBreaker debateable among fans]], she has definitely become a favorite of the developers very fast. In-game, she is shilled a lot for being strong, beautiful and admired for her determination in fulfilling her mission and made much of in the [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2 sequel]] as well. Despite being from one of the more recent Tales games, she has already appeared as ''the'' Cameo Boss in ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' and is the Xillia representative in ''Tales of the World: Reve Unitia''. And the latter is known for featuring some of the most [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular]] characters in the series, making Milla obviously favored by the writers.

*** Zack himself arguably qualifies as well. Not only was he made much more important than originally presented ''and'' his death changed to an over-the-top {{Badass}} fight against an entire army rather than the ''subversion'' of such a death his demise was in the original game (similar to the way [[ItWasHisSled Aerith's death]] was), but ''Advent Children Complete'' {{Retcon}}ned Cloud's victory over Sephiroth so that it's ''Zack's ghost'' pulling Cloud out of despair and inspiring him to defeat Sephiroth rather than Cloud's own HeroicResolve, with Cloud even summing himself up by saying "I am your living legacy" to Zack.

** Within ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', we have Genesis. Essentially a Sephiroth knockoff, he acts like a loathsome spoiled child, commits numerous acts of murder and violence for no good reason (not even having the Sephiroth excuse of being AxCrazy) and is generally uninteresting. Yet, the major events of the game revolve around him and the events of ''Final Fantasy VII'' have been retconned to all revolve around having been kicked off by Genesis. Worst of all, [[spoiler:''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'' shows us he somehow survives with no ill effects, making him the ''FFVII'' series' KarmaHoudini]]. This might have to do with the fact that Genesis was based on inexplicably popular J-Pop singer Music/{{Gackt}}. He only appears to be in ''Crisis Core'' to have a FinalBoss to fight, since Sephiroth's survival is a ForegoneConclusion.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Tales|Series}}'' series, [[VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria Rose]], a [[GenkiGirl genki assassin]] who [[spoiler:attacks the party as an expert assassin]] prior joining, is instantly liked by everyone in the party, and has a lot of screen time despite little to no plot-driving. The creators are not even trying to hide their fondness of her by giving her a power which is exclusive to TheChosenOne (by justifying a certain seraph had been possessing her body many times in the past that conveniently gave her said power) and throwing BigDamnHeroes every opportunity she can have. Did we mention that she is also forced to be in the party all the time in each battle? There is also a rumor of the series director having a fondness of her VA floating around as well.
This list shows the last 10 events of 423. Show all.
