* MLB Trade Rumors publishes a number of articles based on players' agents despite the fact that the comments for them are the lowest on the site. Simply put the viewers don't care who represents who (with the exception of [[TheAce super agent]] Scott Boras) or recently when Music/JayZ became an agent.
* Porn example: Sara Stone on Naughty America. After being gone a few years, [[HesBack she returned to the biz]] with a "exclusive" deal with the site. As expected, she had a couple new scenes... [[UpToEleven then more and more and more...]] to the extent that if there was a possible sub-site/genre she could be placed in ex. (threesomes, cowgirl [[IThoughtItMeant as in the occupation,]] cheating wife, etc.) you could best believe she was there, sometimes two scenes of her per week. This isn't to say that she was actually ''bad'' in said scenes, but the viewers called the site on it and eventually the frequency died down along with the exclusive deal.

* Encyclopedia Dramatica has the social justice articles. People are tired of the website spending so much time covering them and straying from their original mission of drama. Howveer the administrators don't seem to agree and featurs them so prominently. Whether or not they're JumpingTheShark or [[WereStillRelevantDammit trying to remain relevant in this internet age]] is hotly debated.

* The Alchemy feature on GaiaOnline. Since it's release in 2011, the feature has been completely reviled by the userbase. Alchemy components are nearly impossible to get, and the only ways to obtain them are luck-based. For recipes for items that existed on the site prior to the release of the feature, getting all the components and paying to craft the item costs far more than just buying it on the site's marketplace. Even the richest users on the site have to work together to make some of the items. Nevertheless, much of the Gaia staff insists that the feature is SUPPOSED to be hard and that it's working as they intended.
** Character-wise, Diedrich gets a ''lot'' of hate from users who find his personality quirks obnoxious, and are sick of seeing him shoehorned into one event after the other.

* Lumpy is this for a great part of the ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' fanbase. It doesn't help that there were only two TV episodes Lumpy didn't appear in. In some of these he didn't have much of a role other than just to be there. This is only justified by the fact that the writers seem to work on a "take the dumbest character in the series and throw him into jobs that require brains and see what happens" system.

* In a sense, "[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/archived-scps Archived]]" objects from the ''SCPFoundation'' are this. While most of them aren't considered terrible or as bad as the [[TheScrappy Decommissioned SCP items]], they are generally considered weaker than the main list items (mostly due to suffering from EarlyInstallmentWeirdness) and one the reason they haven't been deleted is the site staff want to keep them around either for personal reasons or due to their involvement in various tales.

* One of the recurring complaints about ''[[MarvelComics Marvel Super Heroes]]: What The--?!'' concerns the fact the ugly and obnoxious {{MODOK}} appears in nearly every episode. Despite this, Marvel still gives him a frequent amount of scenes.

* ''TwoMoreEggs'' (an animated web series created by the guys who created ''HomestarRunner'') parodies this trope mercilessly in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CX-c9vZGFs Trauncles]]''.
