* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Though it's not really a single character, "AsHimself" is something of a taboo phrase in ''Simpsons'' fandom. Most of the time, especially post-season 10, any guest star to play themselves mostly shows up with little reason, acts cool and popular, and isn't really given anything funny to say. Hence, the star comes off as less there to service the plot, and more as a means of mooching off their popularity. Infamous examples include the stage magicians in "The Great Simpsina" and Music/LadyGaga in "Lisa Goes Gaga." The latter in particular received no small amount of hatred from the fanbase for being an effective CanonSue, whose spotlight episode was massively-promoted and played very heavily on her public image without saying anything particularly new or interesting about it. Many contrasted her performance to that of Music/MichaelJackson, who guest-starred as a fat white bricklayer living in a mental ward and received a good amount of acclaim for his part.

** Mrs. Crocker, Denzel Crocker's mother, is starting to become one. She is a plain, boring, obnoxious old lady and for some reason since Season 7 onwards the writers think that she is an entertaining and funny character that everyone wants to watch.

* The concept of the Creator's Pet was parodied brilliantly in ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''. It was done in a sketch featuring the producers of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' discussing how to make the fans love Wesley Crusher, after the fandom has paid for a billboard threatening to ass rape Creator/WilWheaton to death. So they decide to include a character so annoying, Wesley would look better by comparison. When one writer suggests they try to make Wesley a better character, he gets thrown out of the room. The resulting episode has an annoying GreatGazoo rip-off called "Snirkles", who proceeds to bother Wesley by playing a "space banjo song" and then disappearing. The fans then change the billboard to say "Kill Wesley. Keep Snirkles." Wil Wheaton, after seeing the sketch, tweeted that he would've loved to voice Wesley if they asked him to.

** Denzel Crocker and Timmy's dad have become this since Season 7 onward. Butch Hartman have been 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.

\n* In-universe example from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': while working on the "Wacky Delly" cartoon for Ralph Bighead, Filbert becomes very protective of The Cheese, the character he created/[[DescendedCreator voiced]]. -->'''Cheese:''' I am The Cheese! I am the best character on the show! I am better than both The Salami and The Bologna combined!

** [[ThoseTwoGuys Blucik and Driba]] from ''Western Animation/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 betray 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.
