* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' backstory, ''most'' of the Traitor Primarchs got on poorly with their brethren. Magnus's cocky use of warp power meant he wasn't trusted; Lorgar's desperation for something to believe in meant he didn't have many friends among the militantly atheistic Imperials even ''before'' he embraced Chaos; Angron was a brutal berserker whose Legion slaughtered everything in its path; Konrad Curze was a sadistic maniac who led a similarly vicious Legion; Mortarion got along badly with any of his brothers who endorsed the use of psychic powers; Perturabo was always cold and distant from the rest of the family; and nobody ''ever'' really got to know the militantly secretive Alpharius. Among the loyalists, Jaghatai Khan's insularity and remoteness, Russ's studied brutality, and Lion El'Jonson's politicking meant that they were not well-liked; in the early stages of the Heresy, the Khan and the Lion were the ones everyone considered to have a high risk of siding with Horus.

* Among the Pentacle in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', the Guardians of the Veil and the Free Council are the most disliked. The Guardians of the Veil are the SecretPolice of mages, working to contain knowledge that's too dangerous and willing to go to great lengths to do so, while the Free Council are radicals who reject the Diamond Orders' fixation on Atlantis, belief in hierarchy and subtle disdain for Sleepers. Naturally, their vastly different belief systems lead to the two least popular orders not really getting along with each other, either.

* [[MonsterClown Cicero]] to the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. Nobody really likes him because of his [[AxCrazy madness and instability]], as well as his strict adherence to the Night Mother which runs contrary to the way that Astrid runs things. He is only left around because he is a Keeper and, ironically enough, the only one who tolerates him better than anyone is [[GrumpyOldMan Festus Krex]], who is the most irritable and grouchy member of the group.

* Ignus from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' is an AxCrazy {{Pyromaniac}} mage. The rest of the party is terrified of him and if you recruit him they only accept his presence because he's latched onto [[PlayerCharacter The Nameless One]]. Annah and Morte recommend you should all run in the general direction of 'away' from him and never look back, and even Fall-From-Grace recommends you tread ''really carefully'' in any conversation with him and admits she has no idea why Ignus is so attached to you in the first place.

* Ignus from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' has a party that's a DysfunctionJunction and no-one really gets along in the first place. Still, there are two potential party members who are not tolerated by anyone else:

He has absolutely no banters with any of the other party members because they refuse to approach him, and Ignus refuses to acknowledge that anyone who's not himself or The Nameless One even exist as something other than firewood.
** Vhailor's extremely dour personality and KnightTemplar outlook means the party members find him both unnerving and boring to talk with. Unlike Ignus he has a few banters, but only Grace and Nordom are willing to talk to him.

This is TruthInTelevision. Chances are you have a "friend" like this, or you may even be that "friend" yourself.

** Trina Vega tends to be [[ButtMonkey the butt of all the jokes]]. Jade--in two different episodes--even tells her, "No one likes you!"

** To some extent Robbie, since his friends constantly act like jerks to him. Pity is likely why he's kept around.

** Goro Akechi of ''VideoGame/Persona5'' [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this]], since he's a GreatDetective who doesn't care for the Phantom Thieves of Hearts' [[HeelFaceBrainwashing methods]], and blackmailed his way onto the team.

* Johnny Cage of ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is one of the good guys, but his snarky, sarcastic, pompous attitude riles on his allies. This is especially clear in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', where just about every one of Earthrealm's veteran kombatants finds him annoying and makes it clear in pre-match dialogues. The list includes his ex-wife Sonya, the retired 'consultant' Jax Briggs, and the serious-minded Scorpion and Sub-Zero. This also includes Raiden himself, who ostensibly chose Johnny as Earthrealm's Champion after the events of ''9''. Even fellow DeadpanSnarker Kenshi can't stand Johnny's acting. Contrarily, he gets along quite well with the younger generation of Earthrealm heroes, who prefer his firm but compassionate leadership to Sonya's greater strictness and demands for discipline.

** Virion counts by virtue of his status as a vain, flamboyant womanizer and something of a GuileHero. Most of his supports revolve around the other person initially distrusting him or finding something about him detestable.

** Morrigan from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' plays with this this. Hardly anyone in the party actually admits to liking her (and vice versa) except the dog, but he likes everyone. The male Warden can choose have a romance with her, while a female Warden can befriend her to such an extent that Morrigan admits to thinking of her as a sister, though both cases take a lot of work and Morrigan is initially not receptive. Oghren, Sten and Shale seem mostly okay with her as well, but no one else particularly likes ''them'', either (and Oghren obviously just thinks she's hot). Thinking she's hot--and dangerous--is also one of Zevran's motivations for being more friendly too, especially considering they both count as a TokenEvilTeammate. She is only actively disliked by Alistair and Wynne. Leliana starts out with antagonistic feelings toward Morrigan, but [[BiTheWay will eventually start flirting]] (not that it goes anywhere).
*** [[spoiler:Loghain]], if he joins the party, is also this trope - however, this example is understandable given his prior actions.

* Slugs from ''Series/ThisCountry''. He specialises in turning up uninvited, outstaying his welcome and being "utterly annoying". He was at school with Kerry and Kurtan and it's possible that they hang out with him because all of their other friends have moved on and left the village and they're bored. Also because it's such a tiny village and he's hard to avoid.
