** Sparky was created literally because Butch Hartman loves animals and loves adding in new characters. In almost any interview that mentions Sparky, Hartman goes on about how Sparky is great because of all of the gags he does involving "dog magic" and other things. Viewers however instead have [[TheScrappy different]] [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic opinions]] of him. This seems to be subverted since Season 10, as [[WordOfGod Sparky's VA]] [[https://www.facebook.com/MattVOTaylor/photos/a.513190835396324.1073741825.513161288732612/940745935974143/?type=3&source=11&comment_id=944781588903911&reply_comment_id=945127628869307&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R0%22%7D confirmed he won't return in this season.]]
** Denzel Crocker and Timmy's dad have become this since Season 7 onward. Butch Hartman has described them as his favorite characters due to the fact that they tend to be used as the main source of humor in the series. Fans just wish that the main source of humor in the series would be, you know, Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda.
** Mrs. Crocker, Denzel Crocker's mother, has become a minor one. Most fans see her just a plain, boring, and obnoxious old lady and even then for some reason since Season 7 onwards the writers think that she is an entertaining and funny character that everyone wants to watch.
** Poof was one as well. Most consider him boring, overexposed, and [[{{Mary Sue}} overpowered]] when he wasn't just acting cute for the sake of acting cute. He gets praised by almost all the cast and crew, even his [[Creator/TaraStrong voice actress]]. That being said, fans tend to agree that his overexposed character became more tolerable by comparison after Sparky and Chloe were introduced, and ironically, he has been very much OutOfFocus since then.
** Chloe. In just one episode, she managed to become the most hated character in the series. She's one of the most ludicrous examples of a {{Mary Sue}} in Nickelodeon history, [[{{character shilling}} wowing Timmy's negligent parents, impressing Timmy's child-hating teacher]], curing a monster from its pain, and somehow defeating Jorgen Von Strangle ([[{{MusclesAreMeaningless}} the strongest and toughest fairy in the universe, mind you]]) despite being a puny, ten-year-old girl. The writers clearly wanted an example of [[{{YouGoGirl}} Girl Power]], since they thought the show needed a good female lead, despite the fact that Wanda already was this before the show rewrote itself to fit its endless supply of new characters. The fact that characters are often made to look mean-spirited, selfish, or misogynistic just to make her look good by comparison doesn't help fan appreciation for her. The worst part about her, as many fans point out, is that she is assigned Timmy's god family alongside Timmy due to a fairy shortage, all of which makes no sense; not only because of the unlikely fact that so many children in the world could be miserable enough to obtain fairy godparents, but because in such a case, Chloe clearly shouldn't be one of them, as the show reveals later that her sole reason for being so miserable is that [[{{JustOneLittleMistake}} sometimes she makes mistakes when she helps people]].

** [[ThoseTwoGuys Blucik and Driba]] from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'': have been stated several times by the writers to be part of their favourite characters; they were given appearances in a large part of the episodes, played a role in ''two'' of the season finale, there has already been one episode focused on them which was stated to be the team's favourite (and another one similar has already been announced), and lead designer Derrick Wyatt admitted he wouldn't mind them having their own spin-off show. In the eyes of many fans, they are just another PluckyComicRelief duo in a show already full of them, with the additional bonuses of being [[TooDumbToLive dumb enough to constantly make idiotic decisions]], [[TheLoad putting everyone in danger in the process]], often ending up as a DiabolusExMachina and showing signs of FantasticRacism.

** While [[LovableRogue Argit]] wasn't ''that'' hated in [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce his earlier]] [[WesternAnimation episodes]], ''Omniverse'' writers loved him and started using him more... while making his roguish actions go [[KickTheDog a bit]] [[MoralEventHorizon too far]] in the eyes of some fans (most infamously when he [[spoiler:willingly betrayed LaResistance to [[AliensAreBastards the Inkurseans]]]]), and yet making him [[KarmaHoudini constantly get away scott-free, if not with a better situation than before]] (in the future episode, it's revealed [[spoiler:he will get elected president of Earth]]). Some fans started to find him less funny and more obnoxious as a result.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Brian Griffin. During the shows run, Seth MacFarlane has admitted that his intentions were for Brian to be the show's most popular character, while Meg would be the least popular, but to his complete surprise, Stewie became the shows breakout star, while Brian became the show's scrappy. The crew seems often desperate to make Brian more popular, at one point even killing him off then bringing him back just three episodes later, which fans would usually be happy to hear until they realise that Family Guy episodes take six months to produce.
