* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''
** Vegeta falls into this during the Android arc due to most of the cast fearing him, with the exception of Bulma (who had his baby) and Goku (who's [[EasilyForgiven more of the forgiving sort]] and actually likes having a rival like Vegeta around). Even his son, Trunks, spends about as much time berating him as he did seeking his approval. It's so bad that whenever Vegeta gets hurt, no one is in any hurry to heal him, even when he's demanding it. And when he first went Super Saiyan, the entire main cast all but groaned. After getting beaten unconscious by Cell, Krillin says point-blank that he didn't really care if he dies and is only doing this because Trunks believes in him. He lightens up slightly as time goes on, though he never quite grows out of it; the other fighters are more comfortable having him around but his arrogant personality still puts him off most of the cast.
** Even in ''Dragon Ball Minus'' Vegeta's fellow Saiyans didn't seem to like him too much. Bardock calls him a pain in the neck partner when he learns Raditz is paired up with him.

* One of the many {{Recurring Element}}s in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' is a party member that everyone else treats like a massive annoyance. The more snarky characters frequently get in shots at their expense, often to the point of making the Friend Nobody Likes into a ButtMonkey.
** ''TalesOfLegendia'' has Norma fill this role. A GenkiGirl who loves [[TheNicknamer coming up with nicknames for people]], the rest of the party treat her as an annoyance for a good majority of the game. It's only towards the very end of the game's second arc that this lightens up.
** Magilou from ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' is a {{Troll}} who tags along with the party because, according to her, she has nothing better to do (though it's revealed to be [[HiddenDepths more complicated]] [[SadClown than that]]). Early on, the party even considers Magilou to be TheLoad, mostly because she stays out of combat, until she finds Bienfu and starts fighting. Towards the end of the game, the party has at least learned to put up with Magilou, even if they won't outright admit they like her.

* The eponymous character from ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' is the star of the show in his own little town-in-a-box. The people who play his friends and family go out of their way to avoid him [[ItsAllAboutMe and mostly only care about their paycheck]]. In this case it might be less a sign of Truman's personality and more that the "cast" of the show are associated with him because they're actors and not his friends.

** Also in that part, Shigekiyo "Fatty" Yangu. Though Josuke and Okuyasu tolerate him, they still find him despicable and don't trust him, owing to him stealing their lottery money. Despite this, [[spoiler: Fatty's death is the catalyst that gets Josuke's team to start fighting back against [[BigBad Kira]]]]

** ComicBook/JohnConstantine is pretty hated among the heroes who know of him. He's a manipulative man who will rope other people into his efforts and has been known to come out unscathed when those who've worked with him get the short end of the stick. Underneath it all, he's a good man who feels responsible for those he's been powerless to protect.

** It should be noted that the crew, Mal in particular, is ''well'' aware of Jayne's less-savory personality traits, and the one time he does screw them over Mal straightens him out but good in an epic CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'':
** In the [[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa first game]], we have Byakuya Togami who is an InsufferableGenius and a complete {{Jerkass}}, who quickly distances himself from the other characters and makes it clear that he's willing to kill if he has to, but still figures out important elements of any murder before anyone else, and even ends up taking Naegi under his wing as a protege of sorts. About the only person who enjoys his company is Fukawa [[spoiler:and her SplitPersonality, Genocider Syo]], who has a massive crush on him, though the feeling is definitely [[MadLove not mutual]].
** In a way, Yasuhiro Hagakure. He's nearly always so [[CloudCuckooLander off-the-cloud in the ways of thinking]] that nobody takes him seriously, and even Naegi ends up being abhorred at him if he maxes out his Free Time, where he tries to get Naegi to sell his organs so he doesn't have to spend his personal savings. At that point, while he would have considered Hagakure a 'friend', Naegi still keeps his distance of him. It even outright gets meta. A lot of official group art tends to pair the students up based on their relationships. Yasuhiro, however, is usually just standing there by himself to the side. And by Anime/DanganRonpa3, Monokuma states he was stuck outside the building where all of the action is taking place thus being excluded from the main plot, "Because nobody likes him."
** [[spoiler: Toko Fukawa's SerialKiller [[SplitPersonality alter-ego]] Genocide Jill]]. Not only is she an [[AxCrazy enthusiastically unabashed serial killer]], she's also prone to frequent maniacal laughter and [[MotorMouth rapid, rambling speech.]] She usually shows up at inconvenient times when the students need to concentrate (such as during investigations and class trials). She's also obsessively [[spoiler: [[MadLove in love]] with Togami and follows him around everywhere]]. None of the other students are very happy when she shows up, least of all [[spoiler: Togami]].
** [[spoiler:Nagito Komaeda]] from [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 the sequel of the first game]]. He quickly makes it known that he's completely insane and would be perfectly willing to kill anyone, or even ''be'' killed by anyone. As such, even though he's possibly the most intelligent character in the game, often figures out key elements in a murder long before everyone else, and straight up idolizes the other characters, the others absolutely ''hate'' him and don't like being around him, and even when someone tries to figure him out, his view of the world is so [[BlueAndOrangeMorality bizarre]] that they just can't.
** On the same token as Togami below, Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu also fits; he is extremely abrasive, refuses to integrate himself into the group dynamic, and claims that he eventually intends to commit the perfect murder and escape. [[spoiler:However, after his childhood friend commits murder in order to get him off the island under the belief that Monokuma would accept her view of herself as his tool, he mellows out and subverts the trope.]]
** Hiyoko can be this as well due to her bullying most of the other students with her only friend being Mahiru. And after [[spoiler: Mahiru died and evidence pointed to Hiyoko being the culprit, everybody except for Hajime and Ibuki believed that she did it]]. Even in the [[spoiler: chapter when she died, they talked more about Ibuki's death then her own death though Ibuki's death has more evidence pointing to the killer.]]
** In a relative GaidenGame called ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'', we have Jatarou, which none of the Warriors of Hope end up liking - to the point where he is actually booed by the audience during his battle with Komaru and Toko. However, according to his profile, he actually prefers being hated: he hates being loved. On the other hand, [[spoiler: it is heavily implied that [[IJustWantToBeLoved he just wants to be loved]]; he's so warped that he can't comprehend others being kind to him, outright screaming that he doesn't want anyone to look at him without his mask (though he dislikes wearing it)]].
** Kokichi Oma from [[VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3 the third game]] in the main series. In the same vein as [[spoiler: Nagito]], Kokichi is the most intelligent character in the game and can see through the motives and murders. Unlike [[spoiler:Nagito]], he is on the side of his classmates and wants to stop the mastermind's game. However, he is a master liar and manipulator who invokes a GenghisGambit on himself to make the other students focus during the investigations and trials, and has way too much fun trolling them with his jokes and threats, some of which go to KickTheDog levels. Everyone quickly grows tired of his antics, [[spoiler:and by Chapter 5 suspect him to be the mastermind due to how much fun he's having in the killing game. And then the trope is deconstructed, because with no one liking or trusting him, Kokichi decides ThenLetMeBeEvil.]] He even lampshades this trope in Chapter Four by stating that he is the least well-liked student.
** Also from the third game, there's Miu Iruma. She spends most of the game insulting the others on their appearances while arrogantly touting her talent, intelligence, and beauty as reasons why she's better than them. She is also stated that the "uglier and stupider ones should die first". In fact, during [[spoiler: her class trial]], many students stated that they probably wouldn't have been friends with her, even if they hadn't met in a killing game. This trope was once again lampshaded by Kokichi Ouma by stating that other than himself, she is the least well-liked student.
