* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Misty's Psyduck is a great source of annoyance for his trainer, but also a great source of amusement for the readers. Also the Pokédexes with their quirky personalities; Ash's annoys him and his friends to no end, and Paul can't stand his, but the fans can't get enough of them.

* [[DeadpanSnarker Ishigami]] from ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokuraseti'' is considered to be creepy by most of his classmates due to an incident that happened back in middle school (pretty much the only person who would admit to liking him would be [[StudentCouncilPresident Shirogane]]), but is the single most popular character among the fanbase.

** Bakugou Katsuki is the biggest example. Among Class 1-A, the only ones to show signs of liking him are Kirishima and Midoriya, outside of that, he is either the ButtMonkey or TheFriendNobodyLikes, but he ranked 1st place on the latest popularity poll.

* Steve Urkel in ''Series/FamilyMatters'' is this. It's implied that not even ''his parents'' like him that much. Although, in later seasons, Urkel became so annoying and overdone, that not even the fans really liked him very much anymore.

Steve Urkel in ''Series/FamilyMatters'' is this. It's implied that not even ''his parents'' like him that much. Although, in later seasons, Urkel became so annoying and overdone, that not even has ended up being a [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zagged]] case. He played it straight at first, when the fans really liked loved him very much anymore.and most of the other characters on the show ([[ParentalNeglect which included his own parents]]) did ''not'' like him. But as the years went by and Steve went through a plenty of {{Flanderization}}, more and more viewers started to look at him in a less sympathetic light.
** Waldo. Like Steve, although to a lesser extent, he's likely to annoy nearly everyone on the show, even Steve, but he still is loved by fans.
** Myra. Lots of people like her more than Laura, despite the fact that the writers of the show did their best to portray her as the AbhorrentAdmirer.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': Jon Arbuckle. Up until he got into a relationship with Liz, his dog and his parents were the only ones who ever really liked him. He's constantly belittled by his cat, people tend to hate him within a few seconds of meeting him, and he drives women away in droves, and that's when he's just trying to get a date, not to mention ones he's actually dated, who frequently go to ridiculous extremes to avoid him, but he's pretty popular with fans.

Both sides probably have to do with him alternating between incredibly boring and utterly (if harmlessly) insane.

* Manga/{{Berserk}}: Guts has had [[DarkAndTroubledPast this hard]] from the moment of his birth and throughout his life, considered a curse by his awful adoptive father Gambino and despised by nearly everybody he cane across. This only changec when he met [[TrueCompanions the Band of Hawk]] who [[{{Tsundere}} apart]] from Casca and Corkus accepted him with open arms. This also servered as metaphorical and phiyscal gut punch as they [[DarkestHour savagely taken away from him]] in the bloodiest and cruelest way possible. Which sent Guts off alone again as the infamous ''[[DarkIsNotEvil Black Swordsmen]]''.
** Naturally Guts's enteral pain and struggle, make the heart and soul of the series in eyes of fans. Who detest the injustice of Guts being accused and hunted during his quest for [[BestServedCold righteousness vengeance]] and especially against the alleged hero of the kingdom Griffith who is [[VillainWithGoodPublicity worshipped]] despite the colossal amount of shit he's pulled.

* 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.
