* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': Tomas De Torquemada, the main antagonist of the series, was deliberately made to be hated by readers as Nemesis himself was basically just an amoral alien fighting a man much worse than he is. Torquemada is the human dictator of Termight who is a religious zealot with an insatiable obsession with killing aliens, even aliens who are peaceful and want nothing to do with humanity. Torquemada is also not above killing members of his own species to further his own selfish plans and is also a huge {{Hypocrite}} who would keep aliens alive either to use them for his schemes or try to stop his wife Candida from divorcing him. Torquemada fully cements himself into a hate sink during book 6 when he crosses the MoralEventHorizon by brutally and mercilessly murdering Nemesis' 10 year old son, Thoth.



* In ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'', Dr. Wily is written like this on purpose, as the author likes having villains that readers root against. Several other villains also qualify, such as Metal Man and the Conduit, but the biggest example aside from Wily is anti-robot racist William Cochran.

* ''FanFic/MykanTributeFallOfStarfleetRiseOfHarmony'': Shared between Grand Ruler Celesto and Rhymey. For the former, you will at first hate him for the lengths he goes to undermine his own allies despite them winning his battles just because they aren't his privileged people and aren't fully under his control... and then be utterly disgusted by how deep his ControlFreak issues goes, and how much he relies on outright brainwashing for everyone, ''including'' his closest soldiers. For the latter... the author was intending to make him sympathetic, as had been done with the rest of Lightning's team, but genuinely couldn't. Pushing him in the other direction worked better, and he's since been revealed as unlikeable, entitled and completely sociopathic who literally has no second thoughts about hurting anyone in order to get what he wants. [[Spoiler:Turns out it's a family trait.]] Ironically, Dark Conquest wants to be this in-story since he feeds on hate and grows stronger from it, but since he has much more style and charisma, and is not nearly as much of a hypocrite, he's more entertaining to watch.

** Although in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' Gladstone had his lucky streak stolen and he briefly experiences a serving of misery and humble pie, especially when he realizes he relied solely on his luck to get through life. Tellingly, in the comics, after suffering the same loss and regain... he appears to learn absolutely nothing and is as smug as ever. His ''DuckTales'' incarnation is noticeably more sympathetic than his comics counterpart by comparison.

* Many of the lower-level {{WWE}} heels aren't really all that vile, but they are annoying and "[[StrawLoser uncool]]". Quite a few of them are also supposed to be hated simply because they are [[ForeignWrestlingHeel Evil Foreigners]], [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece hail from a country the United States is having difficulty getting along with at the moment]], or at least advocate political positions that seem "un-American." Heels who aren't very evil from the beginning will [[KickTheDog quickly do something mean]] so the audience has an excuse to hate them.

* Unlike in canon, where they have at least some redeemable character traits, [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8491420 We Are The Chatroom Gems]] interpretation of Yellow Diamond and her Pearl (Yella Diamond and her daughter Limone) are completely unsympathetic, with Limone being an AlphaBitch [[BigBrotherBully who picks on her foster sister Peridot]], and Yella being not only {{abusive|Parents}}, but also a homophobe and possibly an ableist. There might be others as well, but so far it's merely implied.
** Alexandrite ([[RonTheDeathEater of all people]]) in the [[CrackShip Grasper]] fic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/10800837 No one said life was easy]], is little more than a bully.

Added DiffLines:

* Given the fact that Chris-Chan is one of the most hated individuals on the internet, it's perhaps unsurprising that ''The Legend of LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}}'' portrays him as an arrogant jerk who extorts money from you, tries to kill you, and gets mad that you attacked him in self-defense, and the characters go out of there way to say how much they hate him.

* Unless you are on the Light or a ''really'' nice traditionalist Witch, Sabbat members in ''[[Fanfic/FirebirdsSon the Firebird Son and it's sequels]]'' are not meant to be liked, and spent most of their time on screen being so unpleasant that their attempted murders of their own children are on the lower end of the 'hate me' spectrum. It says a lot where Voldemort manages to pull off an EvilerThanThou on them, even after pulling off a ''lot'' more moments of KickTheDog, and it comes off quite clearly with him being the less evil one.

to:

* Several examples in ''[[Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines]]'' and related oneshots.
** Joshua from the Summer Camp Oneshot, who establishes himself early on as a unrepentant jerkass and goes on from there. By the end of the story it's clear he's also an unrepentant cheater.
** Dario. While his actions in the main story are offscreen, the Big P oneshot makes it quite clear he's just as unrepentant a cheater as in canon who not only puts his fellow racers in serious danger, but when he loses he has the gall to accuse Ash of cheating. Needless to say [[spoiler: his fate is well deserved]].
** Ash's father. It's made quite clear in the narrative that he is not a good guy in the narrative for a variety of reasons. Delia refuses to acknowledge him as Ash's father, Gary, deep in his jerk phase, would give him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech over his actions, and [[spoiler: not only is it hinted he's a criminal whose fellow brothers/criminals have shown themselves to be incredibly violent and unstable, but it's implied that he has ''hundreds'' of illegimate children like Ash who he never cared for everywhere]].

* [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels The Angelic Host]] in ''{{ComicBook/Crimson}}'' aren't necessarily villains, but they are written to be as despicable as possible being obnoxious, obstructive and self-righteous zealots who attempt to execute TheHero because he is a [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire vampire]], yet refuse to anything about the BigBad, directly or not.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Comicbook/ScottPilgrim'': The FinalBoss of the series, Gideon Graves, is definitely a powerful villain and a threat in his own right, but he also happens to be a [[ItsAllAboutMe vain, selfish]], [[EvilIsPetty petty]], [[HeManWomanHater misogynistic]] [[NouveauRiche young-money douchebag]] whom even ''the narratorial voice'' calls a huge dick. Of particular note is that his formal introduction in the series occurs shortly after we learn that Scott himself is hardly the hero he's been presenting himself as and has numerous acts of dickishness of his own to his name - but after Gideon steps into the story in full, Scott himself and the other characters become more willing to forgive his past transgressions, as Scott realizes that Gideon is what he could become and resolves to not let that happen. In TheMovie, Scott's roommate Wallace sums Gideon up as "What a perfect asshole."
