* Mirabelle of ''Series/TheKicks''. She's outright called "mean", "scary", and "annoying", but her teammates still consider her a friend (it helps that she's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold).

* Klaus of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is often ignored and openly disliked by the Smith family, but are stuck with him (Proximity and Supervision) due to the CIA turning him into their pet goldfish. Roger has bouts of this due to being a TokenEvilTeammate.
* Reggie fills this role in ''WesternAnimation/ArchiesWeirdMysteries'', being a jerk who mostly looks out for himself. This is even lampshaded in one episode where the gang wonders why they should bother saving him when he's possessed by a ghost. But most episodes show that when the chips are down, Reggie does look out for his friends and family and will save the day when it counts.
* WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}. Lydia Deetz is his best friend. Everyone else in the Neitherworld tolerates to despises him.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'' there's the AlphaBitch Bianca. How she's friends with anyone is a total mystery. To a lesser extent, Pierce.
* Uncle Ruckus in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'', who everybody (especially Robert) inexplicably tolerates despite being a massive BoomerangBigot.

** Bloo is one of these. Mac (his creator) genuinely likes him; at best the others tolerate him due to Proximity and Supervision. Admittedly, he was more likable and the others enjoyed being with him during the early days before {{Flanderization}} occurred.

* Alexandra in ''WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussyCats'', she does nothing to help out the gang and deliberately tries to sabotage anything they do when she gets the chance.

** Bill is also considered (at best) a nuisance by everyone he knows. Between his disgusting habits, pathetic neediness, frequent AcquiredSituationalNarcissism, tendency to butt into people's lives, and StalkerWithACrush tendencies to the whole Hill family (especially Peggy), the whole cast openly hates him. The main reason everyone still associates with him is obligation and admiration for the fact that when he was younger Bill was TheAce, and genuinely liked by everyone. That and pity.

** Varrick himself fits this trope. He was originally a villain and is generally ([[CharacterDevelopment but not entirely]]) amoral; he destroyed Asami's company and got Mako thrown in jail for it, after all. On the other hand, even at his worse he was always AffablyEvil and generally functions as a cross between a BunnyEarsLawyer and ReluctantMadScientist, so he's usually tolerated out of Necessity.

* Post HeelFaceTurn, Discord becomes this in season 4 of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. He and Fluttershy are real friends and she's the only one who can rein him in, but the rest of the Mane cast tolerate him at best (par maybe [[FunPersonified Pinkie Pie]], ''sometimes'') having redeemed him solely for Necessity. He doesn't deserve any better, since he still acts like a {{Troll}} around them. As of the season 4 finale, even though it took him a rather harsh way, he's becoming more accepted by the ponies.
* Harry the Werewolf from ''WesternAnimation/ScaryGodmother''. Obnoxious, annoying, selfish, lazy, rarely stops [[MotorMouth talking]], rarely stops [[BigEater eating]], and is basically a general nuisance to everyone else.

* As of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', Jar-Jar Binks. Even the people who like him are aware he's a clumsy idiot who is probably going to mess things up. And then there's the Clone Captain assigned as Jar-Jar's bodyguard who finds him completely obnoxious but also useful in a fight, [[ObfuscatingStupidity mistakenly believing that Jar-Jar is doing it on purpose]]. This portrayal is actually [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap a step up for him]]--he's an actual character instead of just a punchline.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', Chopper. Despite being oddly lazy for a droid, his skills are very useful. But since he's an ''asshole'' (also very unusual for a droid) who's actually sometimes put their lives in danger with his pranks, nobody actually likes him and [[TeamMom Hera]] has to prevent the rest of the crew from dismantling him.
* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Nabu, the real ComicBook/DoctorFate, who needs a host for him to inhabit. Nobody really likes him because he's no longer willing to release his hosts; even if they're dead, their souls are trapped in the helmet until he gets a new host. [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] flat out argues for Fate's expulsion from the Justice League at one point, since despite his tactical usefulness, Fate is essentially performing a DemonicPossession on one of their old teammates. Interestingly, Nabu admits that he's mostly hanging out with the League for his own Supervision--his host doesn't trust him, and Nabu apparently feels compelled to prove his trustworthiness.

and have absolutely no respect [[TeamMom Hera]] has to prevent the rest of the crew from dismantling him.
* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Nabu, the real ComicBook/DoctorFate, who needs a host
for him.him to inhabit. Nobody really likes him because he's no longer willing to release his hosts; even if they're dead, their souls are trapped in the helmet until he gets a new host. [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] flat out argues for Fate's expulsion from the Justice League at one point, since despite his tactical usefulness, Fate is essentially performing a DemonicPossession on one of their old teammates. Interestingly, Nabu admits that he's mostly hanging out with the League for his own Supervision--his host doesn't trust him, and Nabu apparently feels compelled to prove his trustworthiness.

** While the Pyro is feared by his/her/its team, [[ColonelKilgore the Soldier]] is the teammate who's most despised by his peers. He's just as violent as the Pyro, calls himself the leader whether everyone likes it or not, is jingoistic to the point that the others would lie about their nationalities to get him off their back, and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero if one of the mercenaries is going to cause trouble for the rest of the gang]], odds are that it's going to be the Soldier.

** Tom Dubois to a lesser extent, as his needy and straight-laced tendencies make the Freemans reluctant to deal with him. Even his wife frequently gets annoyed with him.

* A very common occurrence in ''TabletopGames/{{Fiasco}}'' because you are encouraged to play UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist characters, and the way the Relationship mechanic ties characters together in a circle. Even if two characters have a friendly relationship, one will usually have an unfriendly or power-unbalanced relationship with someone else, who will therefore end up getting pulled into the social group [[HilarityEnsues as soon as the chaos kicks off]], and [[FromBadToWorse proceed to ruin everything]]. Of course, [[BlackComedy this is the aim of the game]].

* In ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', Gary is an alcoholic selfish {{Jerkass}} who never outgrew his teenage mentality, and his friends find him irritating and wearisome. It's also played for tragedy, because they all hoped he's eventually grow out of his immaturity, and he never did. [[spoiler: Although in the DistantFinale he seems to be making progress]].

Added DiffLines:

** In the backstory, Vault-Tec had a scientist developing prototypes for them, by a guy named Ted Huntly. Literally no one at Vault-Tec liked him. Probably because his inventions actually did good things for people, like make an automated eye exam, or an extremely tasty and cheap soda. Vault-Tec wanted him to drug people or use subliminal messaging instead.

** George Costanza comes off as this, DependingOnTheWriter. In certain episodes Elaine cant stand him while Jerry considers him an acquaintance at best and most likely hangs with him out of pity.

** George Costanza comes off as this, DependingOnTheWriter. In certain episodes Elaine cant stand him while Jerry considers him an acquaintance at best and most likely hangs with him out of pity. He and Jerry have also been friends since high school, so he's also got seniority going for him. Humorously, he thinks Elaine is the one nobody likes in their group.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'', Durance is curmudgeonly, racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic, but he tags along with the Watcher because he's convinced their destiny and his are intertwined, and generally allowed to do so because he's an entirely competent priest [[ActuallyPrettyFunny with some good lines]]. Nobody has a high opinion of his constant prattle, though. Mostly it's snark, [[WorldOfSnark as is usual for the game]], but even [[TheStoic Grieving Mother]] will quip that "A voice falls silent, at last" if he's knocked unconscious.
