->''"Let's go Cena!"''

-->-- Popular chant in the Wrestling/{{WWE}}

A character in a series who is loved by one section of the fanbase, and [[TheScrappy hated by the rest]]. The causes are varied: perhaps the character appeals to a certain demographic but is a turn-off to another. Maybe they're a PluckyComicRelief who appeals to the sense of humour of some people but falls flat with others. Sometimes they just highlight [[BrokenBase existing divisions within the fanbase]], or have differing appeal across [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff different]] [[AmericansHateTingle cultures]], due to [[ValuesDissonance different cultural viewpoints]] or other quirks. Either way, some fans like em, some fans don't, little in the way of a middle ground, [[InternetBackdraft flamewars ensue]].

This can happen as a result of {{Shipping}}-related [[DieForOurShip savagery]], the divisions often between those who [[ShipToShipCombat support a rival pairing]] or just couldn't care less.

See also ContestedSequel which is sometimes a result of Base Breaker characters. Not to be confused with BrokenBase.

'''No examples, please. Every character in any work of media is one to some extent. This page simply defines the term.'''
