* ''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, Milla is favored by the writers.

Being a party member who, due to the way the gameplay is structured, cannot be removed from the party, doesn't pass the bar. And if the only source of the creators expressing an unusual fondness for her is rumors about her VA then that's nothing
* 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.

doesn't meet any of the citeria
* Apparently, a good number of the development staff behind ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' were Eldar fans. This would go a long way to explaining why they were [[GameBreaker so flagrantly broken]] (she [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Dawn_of_Eldar here]] for further elaboration, but '''NSFW''').

It's been decided that Spiky-Eared Pichu is not a Creators Pet. It fails Character Shilling, it is not the Scrappy, and as stated in the entry it does not actually steal any spotlight for any other Pokemon.
* During the fourth generation of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', the Spiky-Eared Pichu was one. Although Pichu had long been the favorite Pokémon of series director Junichi Masuda, and it had always had a place in marketing and promotions, it wasn't until the creation of this particular character that Pichu was aggressively pushed into the spotlight. The Spiky-Eared Pichu was created as a character for [[Anime/PokemonArceusAndTheJewelOfLife the then-newest anime movie]] and became the focus of all kinds of merchandise, culminating in both an anime ending that featured her and an appearance in ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]'', all for the purposes of promoting the movie. Despite the big deal made about her in the film's trailers, her actions in the movie weren't that major, and her role could have been performed by plenty of other Pokémon. The fans' hatred for her grew even further when it was discovered that she wasn't even useful in the games, due to Pichu's innate low base stats and the Spiky-Eared one's inability to evolve. When ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' were released, it was discovered that she couldn't be transferred forward to these games; while this did make a few people even angrier about the whole thing, it did at least indicate that her days as a Creator's Pet were ending.

** Piplup in the fourth generation, too. Its face was plastered everywhere, it got a big role in the anime, it had by far the most merch, and official sources were jamming it everywhere, stating how cute it was and, with one writer, stating that they'd rather have Dawn' Piplup stay a Piplup, because they found Empoleon to be ugly. Not only did Dawn's Piplup disliked for being a CreatorsPet on its own, but ''Chimchar'' sold more toys than Piplup. To this day, Piplup's only a moderate seller at best.

Fukawa Touko is not a Creators Pet because she fails to have Character Shilling. She is seen as annoying and smelly. Piplup is as starter so it will naturally get a lot of spotlight and it is definitely not the Scrappy
* Fukawa Touko from ''VideoGame/DanganRonpa''. The introverted novelist [[spoiler: who has a SplitPersonality Serial Killer inside of her called Genocider Shou]] has been stated to be the favorite of the developers and is being promoted as the main face of the ''Danganronpa'' games, compared to more important characters like [[TheHero Naegi Makoto]] or even the BigBad [[spoiler: Enoshima Junko]]. In the spin-off game ''Danganronpa Another Episode'', Fukawa was among the first characters to be revealed to appear in the game and rumor has it that she will also appear in the planned ''Danganronpa 3''.

Lightning and Milla have been discussed previously in the cleanup threads for this trope and The Scrappy.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' introduces Lightning who is widely considered a Creator's Pet. The reception of both her and ''XIII'' [[BrokenBase were mixed]], but Square continued to promote her as the face of the ''Final Fantasy'' franchise for several years regardless. Despite not playing a major role in the sequel, ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 XIII-2]]'', much of the dialogue from the characters can be summed up as "Where's Lightning?" Then, when discussing the follow-up game ''[[VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII Lightning Returns]]'', her own creator (somewhat conceitedly) spoke about how "unprecedented" Lightning's "popularity" was in reference to all spin-off and guest appearances for her. In the sequel for ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', ''Dissidia 012'', the focus of the game's plot was shifted to her, making her out to be the main character for what is meant to be an ensemble {{Fanservice}} game[[note]]Although that did not save her from getting KilledOffForReal in the new section...[[/note]]. This blatant shilling by the creators and what many fans have perceived as a total halt to the production of other mainline titles from the franchise (including the very much hyped ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'') for more Lightning titles has caused a huge backlash towards her and her titles. The hatred has grown so much that a meme has spawned where the phrase "who is the Lightning of x" is used to point out Creator's Pet characters in other video game franchises.

* ''Franchise/{{Tales|Series}}'' series: ** [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Milla Maxwell]], while a main character of her own game, gets shilled every ten minutes there for informed attributes, [[CanonSue does things that should be impossible and has the whole game revolve around her]] and has been included in a bunch of side games, storylines that usually only [[EnsembleDarkhorse Ensemble Darkhorses]] get added to (Milla [[BaseBreaker is not]] [[AmericansHateTingle one by any means]]), and is included in a disproportional amount of promotional material for having only been part of the franchise for a few years. ** [[VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria Rose]] a [[GenkiGirl genki assassin]] who attack the party prior joining is instant liked by everyone in the party.
