There are certain characters who receive [[TheScrappy a lot of hatred from the fanbase]] for one reason or another. Most often, when their creators pick up on the hate, they have a couple options. They can ignore it, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap tweak the character into a more likable version]], or even [[TakeThatScrappy play it for laughs.]] Sometimes, however, the creator(s) have become so attached to this character for whatever reason, whether because they see something of themselves in the character or the character reminds them of someone they were close to or the character represents something they admire, that they decide to increasingly [[CharacterFocus focus on him]], magnifying the importance of his role, and having the other characters [[CharacterShilling talk about how awesome he is]], in painful ignorance of -- or sometimes in spite of -- the fans' obvious hatred. In some cases the writer(s) probably hopes that if given enough time fans will eventually warm up to the character and forgive a shaky start after solid character development.

Keep in mind that this isn't "TheScrappy [[TheSameButMore with a big role]]", nor is it the CanonSue, although there's a lot of overlap in both cases. The Creator's Pet is a combination of being:

For cases when the character is heavily hyped out-of-universe as well as within it, see WolverinePublicity. If the "character" is a real person, that's BillingDisplacement.
