** Let's just say that Flandre Scarlet will never live some of her [[AndCallHimGeorge unpleasant traits]] and very light CuteAndPsycho moments down and let the MemeticPsychopath page provide the rest.



** For [[WebVideo/GameTheoryWebShow Game Theory]] fans, the folks at WebVideo/DorklyOriginals and ''very'' few other people, Mario will be forever thought as a psychopath and the real villain of the franchise due to the "Mario is Mental" theory and its very big RonTheDeathEater supply.



** Princess Peach has [[TookALevelInBadass taken many levels in badass]] over the years, but is ''still'' treated like a DamselScrappy who never does anything but get captured and bake cakes. Granted, the gamemakers ''do'' rely too much on her classic role as TheArtifact, but that doesn't erase the existence of her contributions in the [=RPGs=] and utter badassery in [[VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach her own game]] and in SuperMario3dWorld. There's also [[spoiler:her [[EpilepticTrees hesitating]] before denying she's Bowser Jr.'s mother in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine''.]]

** In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', widely considered the worst 3D Sonic game, there ''are'' hints of romantic feelings between [[InterspeciesRomance the very human Princess Elise and the very non-human (if still anthropamorphic) Sonic]]...but [[{{Starboarding}} it's entirely on Elise's side]]. Not that this minimizes the {{squick}} ''much''...but if you have to blame someone for the romance, blame the writers for [[DamselScrappy the way the character is.]]

** No matter how good Sonic's post-2006 games are (i.e. [[VideoGame/SonicColors Colors]]), [[VideoGame/SonicGenerations Generations]], reviewers[[note]]and, thanks to the new owner of their Twitter page, ''SEGA themselves''[[/note]] will never let us forget that [[DorkAge the quality of Sonic games went through a rough patch in the mid 2000s.]]

* Ember, a minor dragon character from ''VideoGame/{{Spyro:AHero'sTail}}'' flirts with Spyro for most of her very few lines and is the only character in the original games that explicitly expressed romantic interest in him. Fans cranked up her crush to the point that she was completely obsessed with marrying Spyro and would do anything to get him. Things only got worse for her when Cynder was introduced.
* In the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{TheLegendOfSpyro}}'': The Eternal Night, Cynder leaves the Dragon Temple out of guilt for her actions while she was corrupted. Fans then acted like she does nothing but angst about her past afterward, even though she only does so whenever someone brings her past up.

* ''Karnaaj Rally'' for the Game Boy Advance is critically considered to be a rather decent racing game. Unfortunately, most people who have heard of it only know it for having one of the most [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/2b/Karnaaj_Rally.jpg/252px-Karnaaj_Rally.jpg hilariously stupid box covers ever made,]] to the point that {{Seanbaby}} infamously reviewed the game solely by the box art.

** Hoenn, the region in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes, is bashed solely for having [[MemeticMutation "too much water"]] in the last portion of the games, as if only 10% percent of the region was land.

* Creator/{{WayForward Technologies}} is better known for their oft-maligned launch period NintendoDS messenger app release Ping Pals and [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames mediocre cartoon tie-ins]] than their more applauded work, notably the rare and [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove underappreciated]] UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor game ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'', and as such, has infuriatingly been referenced instead in features and reviews on their work in ''VideoGame/{{Contra 4}}'' for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS.

* Combined with ShroudedInMyth in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' with Fen'Harel, remembered by the Dalish as an amoral TricksterGod. Turns out he was a noble leader of a slave revolt, he just never lived down a NiceJobBreakingItHero moment and his reputation had snowballed from there over the centuries.

Turns out he was a noble leader of a slave revolt, he just never lived down a NiceJobBreakingItHero moment and his reputation had snowballed from there over the centuries. Though there are some strong hints that his version of events [[UnreliableNarrator paints him in an overly altruistic light]] and that his actual motives were decidedly more selfish.

Added DiffLines:

* Velvet Crowe of ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' will never live down the one moment where she acted like a dove in order to fool a security guard. Then again, Magilou [[{{Troll}} keeps bringing it up to annoy Velvet]], so she'll never live it down both in-universe and in a meta sense.

** On a related case to Sonic, Dimps. This development studio made some nice [[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy 2D]] [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries platformers]] for the series, and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV some other well-received games.]] But the only things they'll ever be remembered for is "ruining [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4 Sonic 4]]", an obsession with speed boosts and stupidly hard Special Stages. There's at least one ROM hack of Sonic 2 dedicated to "mocking" their use of the boost pads, by sticking them ''everywhere''.

*** And then the "Blue Arms" from Sonic Boom.
** Silver the Hedgehog is remember for screaming "ITS NO YOOSE" in his [[ThatOneBoss infamously hard battle]].

** There's also [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Big the Cat.]] The way people talk about him, you'd think Sonic Adventure was purely about fishing. And get this, his [[Creator/JonStJohn voice actor]] is actually the same guy who voiced ''freakin''' ''[[Franchise/DukeNukem Duke Nukem]]'', even though you wouldn't really know it from his higher tone compared to the BadassBaritone that the Duke employed. To an extent, this applies to other playable characters, as well as the very concept of additional playable characters. This sort of switched a bit when the games cast was reduced to just Sonic and Tails; and people could see first-hand what poor characters they were. So while the characters haven't returned per-se, they're slowly being used more frequently. Even Big has sort of made a comeback, for better or worse.
