* In the infamous ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode, "Arthur's Big Hit", DW gets one when Arthur ''[[WouldHitAGirl punches her]]'' after she breaks his plane and she starts crying. Of course, the episode is done so that you're meant to sympathize with her and be against Arthur. For many, it [[UnintentionallySympathetic doesn't]] work.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}'': [[RichBitch Bel]][[SpoiledBrat son]] isn't well liked by the fandom at all, thanks to being a royal jerk-off to many of the other characters, thus making moments such as him getting punched in the face by the eponymous character in the episode "Lil Buddy" all the more cathartic.

* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddysBigPictureShow Ed, Edd, 'n Eddy]]'' movie, Sarah receives this when the Kankers [[spoiler:give her a wet willie and making her a work mule]]. Kevin gets one too when [[spoiler:Nazz destroys his bike because he cared about it more than he cared about her]].

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had Quagmire rant at Brian [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdbnssEZ_Xk for a good minute and a half]], [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech pointing out pretty much every criticism fans had been making about the character]], including his anti-religious views, his sponging off Peter, his moral superiority, his manipulative ways of attracting dumb women ([[AtLeastIAdmitIt with Quagmire adding that even though he does the same thing, he's at least honest about it]]), and so forth. Especially odd as [[TalkingToHimself both characters are voiced by]] Creator/{{Seth MacFarlane}}, and [[SelfDeprecation even odder]] since Brian is [[MisBlamed the writing staff's]] AuthorFilibuster mouthpiece.

*** The secondary mouthpiece, Stewie, has barely two appearances on the episode mostly to say that Brian shouldn't obsess over being liked by everybody as long as he likes himself, and that he (Stewie) likes him no matter what.

** Fans who hate Lois for being a total bitch can now cheer at sights like getting a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech harsh verbal beatdown]] by her daughter and getting beat up by a mob of children in "You Can't Do That On Television, Peter". And retroactively, Joe punching her in "Breaking Out Is Hard To Do". Plus, in the episode "And I'm Joyce Kinney," Joyce seeks revenge on Lois for a Literature/{{Carrie}}-style prank pulled on her by airing Lois' dirty laundry on national TV about her doing porn.

** Connie gets this ''four'' times. The first time was in "Barely Legal" when Brian gave her an epic TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and made her run away in tears at a dance, the second time was in the episode "Peter's Daughter" when Peter bashes her head on a broken fire hydrant case, the third was in "[=McStroke=]" when Stewie tricked her into making out with him while he was naked and got her arrested, and the fourth was in the episode "Dial Meg For Murder" when the hardened Meg hits hers and the others kids' heads with soda cans, breaking their skulls and then Meg proceeds to humiliate Connie even further by [[HoYay kissing her full on the mouth]].

*** ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E15TwilightTime Twilight Time]]'' had a scene in which Sweetie Belle uses her magic to pick up Diamond Tiara and make her flail through the air. Sadly, this was merely a dream, but fans enjoyed it nonetheless and wait for the day Sweetie Belle does it for real.
** Angel appearing to get crushed in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E3CastleManeia "Castle Mane-ia"]] with Applejack jumping on the pile of rocks doubling as an {{In-Universe}} example. We know the whole time it's not him, but it's hard to imagine a similar gag being done with the likes of Gummy or Winona.

* An {{In-Universe}} example; Irving is treated with contempt by the rest of the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' cast, except for the title characters. But then again, who ''doesn't'' Phineas tolerate? To be fair, though, in real life, he is actually a BaseBreakingCharacter.

** One sketch had the Scooby Doobies team planning retribution for the Really Rottens attack on Laff-A-Munich. The Blue Falcon wanted to partner with a "more subtle talking dog" and had the choice between WesternAnimation/{{Dynomutt|DogWonder}} and Scrappy-Doo (although Scrappy hadn't been created until after ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'') . Guess who he immediately kicks out (literally). The very same sketch also has terrorists blow Booboo Bear's head off with a shotgun, and blows up Scooby-Dum for [[ShootTheShaggyDog literally no reason.]] It's almost a masterpiece made for killing off Creator/HannaBarbera Scrappies.

** In Creator/CartoonNetwork's Big Game between WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, two jokes were made at Scrappy's expense: It it said by the pregame show hosts that Scrappy barely lasted in the playoffs, and during the game itself, Pat Summerall listed adding Scrappy to ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' as one of the worst business decisions ever made.
** In the "The Best Place for Cartoons" promo, Scrappy was ranting on how the Creator/CartoonCartoons characters are more popular than him, despite his being there longer than them. (Ironically, Website/YouTube posts of this clip have comments from people saying they agree with what Scrappy is saying.)

** In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', one episode shows off a statue of Scrappy Doo in a museum. Daphne was about to make a comment about him, but Fred reminds her that [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain they'd never speak of him. Not ever again.]]

** One Creator/CartoonNetwork 20th Birthday promo closes with everybody taking a picture. Before it's taken, [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Jake]] pushes Scrappy-Doo out of the frames.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', the episode "Bart Star" Lisa signs up for the school's football team to be the one girl who wants to join the all-boys football team, only to realize they have four girls in the team already. Seconds later, she completely turns around, protesting the cruel, barbarian actions of playing a game with the skin of an innocent pig. Ned Flanders promptly responds that the balls are synthetic, and Sherri chimes in that for every ball they buy, the company donates to Amnesty International. Lisa leaves in tears.

** Also done in-universe with Poochie. He was so utterly utterly hated he was lazily permanently killed off, instead of you know, trying to correct their mistakes and make him a better character (he only appeared twice counting his death).

** Even in the Lego Star Wars short, Jar Jar only appears on camera for a few seconds to be [[LudicrousGibs shot into many Lego pieces.]]
** In the ''Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales'' mini-series, Jar Jar is shot and blown up at the very beginning of the ''[[Film/ThePhantomMenace Phantom Menace]]'' adaptation despite having a huge role in the original film. Artoo simply chuckles after seeing this. [[UnexplainedRecovery He miraculously survives this]], and then shows up several more times throughout the series [[RunningGag just to somehow get injured immediately after appearing each time]].

** In the final episode of Season Four, Dr. Girlfriend finally tells them off and admits that they're starting to creep even her out. The Monarch's reaction is similar to that of the fanbase's.

** Season 3 is pretty much one big TraumaCongaLine for Mako, who becomes the victim of several misfortunes over the course of the series, such as having a door airbended in his face, his ex-girlfriends play a little prank on him and many other little moments of misfortune that it would take to long to list them all.

* In ''Film/ScoobyDoo'', Scrappy-Doo is [[spoiler:the villain and Scooby actually punches him]]. Earlier on the gang have a fond flashback to how horrible having Scrappy around was, along with how glad they are he isn't around anymore. [[UnintentionallySympathetic This actually went to far for some, though]], since the flashback involved Scooby, who was described as being Scrappy's guardian, agreeing to ''abandon him in the middle of a desert highway''.

** Ironically, by the time this process was over, Mako was more or less ''RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap'' in several fan circles since all of this allowed for his SociallyAwkwardHero to be better displayed. His sort-of OddFriendship with Prince Wu certainly helped.
*** Except that said act also revealed he ''still'' has a lot of [[NeverMyFault his]] [[BadLiar old]] [[NotHelpingYourCase habits]] lingering around that needed to be excised, so said piss-taking was still necessary.
