* The "ugly Bill" commercial where a woman is on a date with a cute guy , but then he becomes overweight , gets yellow teeth and a mole and then all of a sudden he's considered "ugly" by her , and when the poor man asks if she's talking about him or her overpriced direct TV bill she's like "does it make a difference ?" openly calling him ugly to his face , maybe he got fat from all the stress the whore was putting him under....

** There is another Skittles commercial where three young people eating Skittles are sitting on a rainbow in the sky. One of them starts questioning the situation he's in, upon which a TrapDoor opens right beneath him and he falls, presumably to his death. The other two look down briefly and resume eating their Skittles like as if he never existed. Considering this commercial's slogan is "Believe the Rainbow!," the viewer is expected to be on the side of the the two remaining people (as well as arguing to live one's life in complete blind faith).

It should be noted however, that this accusation can be the result of [[MisaimedFandom audiences drawing the wrong conclussion]]. After all, not all heroes are [[AllLovingHero boy scouts]]. Some are [[AntiHero meant to be jerks]] or [[GrayingMorality develop morally questionable traits over time.]] Some are meant to walk in the [[ShadesOfConflict grey line.]] Or alternately, their morality may be meant to be [[BlueAndOrangeMorality completely foreign to humans.]]



The level of designation falls on a spectrum, in more minor cases it's where an AntiHero is treated as an Ideal Hero while a theoretically extreme case would be a character that a sensible work would treat as a Complete Monster being TheHero.

** Another commercial, similar to the Trix commercial mentioned above, has Barney steal the cereal from Fred's dreams.

* [[VideoGame/HalfLife Gordon Freeman]] is depicted as being like this in ''Machinima/FreemansMind''. Everyone hails him as a great hero, but really he just sort of bumbles around and saves the world by an accident, while at the same time trying to negotiate with enemy soldiers (it doesn't work), looting things around Black Mesa, and trying to find anything he can to get high (such as animal tranquilizers). A good example is episode 19: throughout the last few episodes, he had been randomly wandering around, pressing buttons because they looked shiny and shooting zombies who attacked him. Turns out he accidentally turns on a rocket engine that burns a giant monster to death (that he had avoided being crushed by due to sneaking and sheer dumb luck).

The creator justify that if a scientist shoot his way out of an alien invasion, chances are he had a dark side before hell broke loose.

** Though this falls under AllThereInTheManual, initial comics showed that the rock men vibrate when they eat the crystals, and doing this in large numbers had caused major earthquakes further up. So the miners' objective was not so much to obtain the crystals for their own sake, but to keep them away from the monsters to prevent natural disasters. YMMV if that improves things or not.

* Blog/DasSporking has had to put up with a lot of them. The most well-known examples are Bella and Edward from ''Twilight'', and their expies Anastasia and Christian from ''Fifty Shades of Gray'', but there have been others, like Rose Potter.

** The point of the setting is that there are no good guys, and the Imperium is the perspective of the human factions. Individual ''characters'' may be heroic, however.
