* Marvel Universe villain ComicBook/Ultron is feared and hated by both hero and villain alike for his ruthlessness, sociopathy, and [[KillAllHumans genocidal ambitions]]. In the real world, [[EvilIsCool those traits are what's led to him being considered one of the best Marvel villains]].

** [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Johnny Cage]] qualifies as well. He was the resident ButtMonkey of the original timeline and is something of a NoRespectGuy and TheFriendNobodyLikes even in the new timeline. His popularity with fans however skyrocketed with [=MK9=] due to the many [[Funny/MortalKombat9 CMOFs]] he contributes to the game and for being a DeadpanSnarker [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold with a Heart of Gold]]. Although this appears to be an IntendedAudienceReaction since the new timeline also makes him an AscendedExtra with improved and sympathetic characterization, makes him TheHeart for the good guys ''and'' subverts his FakeUltimateHero status.

** Caboose. One of the most disrespected characters on the show. ''The'' most popular character among the fandom.
** Another example is Agent Washington. The Reds and Blues dislike and mistrust him, not only because he's a Freelancer, but also because of how clear he makes it that he's only interested in what they can do for him, not in their well-being. Even among the Freelancers, where he's more well-liked, he still doesn't get much respect, as he's got one of the lowest combat ratings of the group. Yet he's a very popular character among the fans.

** There's also [[NiceGuy Doc]], the {{Butt Monkey}} among a cast of {{Cosmic Plaything}}s. While he's not exactly ''hated'' In-Universe, the Reds and Blues (along with various other characters) just find him to be completely [[ForgettableCharacter forgettable]]/[[TheMillstone useless]]. He's also been one of the series' biggest {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s since the very beginning.

* Stifler from ''Film/AmericanPie'' is a loudmouth {{Jerkass}} [[TheFriendNobodyLikes barely tolerated by the core characters]], and stated to be outright loathed by everyone else in the DirectToVideo sequels. However, his popularity among the franchise's fans is one of the big reasons the movies were successful.

** Princess Luna. Within the show's universe, she comes to be accepted back after her exile, but many ponies are still suspicious of her, as seen in her spotlight episode "Luna Eclipsed". Outside of the show, she's one of the most popular characters, even beyond the [[IncrediblyLamePun Mane Cast]].

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': One long-running example is Daffy Duck, whose [[EscalatingWar escalating rivalry over the years]] with Bugs Bunny was balanced by the audience knowledge that Daffy ''was'' very funny. Interestingly Daffy has been used more and more by Creator/WarnerBros.
