** The episode ''The Boys Of Bummer'' is a rare version of this Trope PlayedForDrama (even within this show), to not mention it deconstructs Strpingfield's love for DisproportionateRetribution: Bart accidentally losing a fly ball (which made his baseball team lose) gives the rest of town enough reason to hate on him non-stop, all day long, for ''weeks''-bad enough that it drives Bart [[DrivenToSuicide into suicidal depression]], which ''they actually encourage him to'', and when jumping from the town's water tower doesn't kills him, they ''arrive to the hospital where he's lying in a coma to keep on raging on him''. It takes [[MamaBear Marge]] [[WhatTheHellTownspeople giving them a well-deserved talk]] for them to finally stop.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}'', Rataxes is lucky to have a "popularity ranking" greater than a rattlesnake bight or a volcanic eruption.

* Played for laughs in ''PrincessJellyfish'' -- while Kuranosuke's {{Cloudcuckoolander}} uncle Saburouta is competent as a politician, his approval rating is quite low (9% in episode 4, which drops to 5% by the finale).

* ''Fanfic/SuddenContact'': The UED sums it up pretty nicely about the [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Dominion]]: -->"When the most likely reaction of your neighbors upon hearing of the UED assault is either applause or indifference, you know you have failed at diplomacy."

** In the two-part cliffhanger "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" ending Season 6 and starting Season 7, EVERYONE in town has good reason to shoot the evil Mr. Burns, including his only known friend, Waylon Smithers. Eventually, [[spoiler:DNA tests suggest that Homer Simpson may have been the shooter, though it eventually turns out to be the baby Maggie who did it. By accident.]]

* In the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode, "Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire Part 2", Craig the Devil uses a lifeline to ask the audience to help him answer a question. All four answers result in 0%, and the Brooklyn Guy asks the audience if their keypads are broken. He soon finds out that the audience deliberately chose not to help Craig.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Just about ''every'' kid in town hates Eric Cartman, though not without good reason. It's to the extent that in one episode, they all flat-out tell Cartman to his face that they don't like him, never thought he was cool, and couldn't possibly have a lower opinion of him than they already do.

Though most of the time, Cartman either misses the point completely or doesn't care.

* Marvel's DoctorDoom has been on both sides of this trope. Sometimes, the Latverians hate him, but other times, [[VillainWithGoodPublicity they're okay with him]] -- especially since alternative rulers like [[EvilPrince Prince Zorba]] are usually even worse. It doesn't hurt that he turned a backwater {{Ruritania}} into an industrial and military force to be reckoned with, strong enough to (before the SlidingTimeScale [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp messed it up]]) stand neutral ''directly between'' Western Europe and the Soviet bloc. If he didn't have a [[BerserkButton terrifying and capricious temper]], he'd stay out of this trope entirely.
