** Tina Bokand/Dinah Drake was destined to become this, after going against fan opinion [[spoiler: and ditching four iterations of the Black Canary, as well as ignoring the possibility of Laurel's actual Earth-2 Doppelganger, Black Siren being reformed into such, therefore giving Kate Cassidy the shaft once again,]] Tina has been seen as an inferior Black Canary in comparison to Laurel and Sara. Doesn't help that all the CharacterShilling she's received in her first two episodes alone could rival [[CreatorsPet Felicity's]].

* While it was hardly her fault, there was little chance of ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast1987'' continuing on with Jo Anderon as the new Beauty after Katherine Chancellor's death, and the ending of the all important romance between her and Vincent, and Linda Hamilton's highly publicized exit, due to her contractual obligation towards ''Film/Terminator2''. That said, it's very difficult to find anyone who thoroughly enjoyed the character of Diane Bennett.

* Dr. Billy Peele as a replacement for Dr. Matt Crower in ''Series/AmericanGothic''. The showrunners have since gone on record that this was down to ExecutiveMeddling by people at the network who believed that Matt wasn't a "strong, heroic" (i.e. macho asshole) antagonist for Lucas, failing to realize that the main conflict was over Caleb's moral development rather than any specific situation and that the kindly, gentle Matt was meant to be a demonstration that you can't fight moral corruption with aggression. This led to a spectacularly malicious plot towards the end of the show where [[spoiler: Billy was led to believe that he was bringing [[FemmeFatale Selena]] to a HighHeelFaceTurn only to discover that she was setting him up as a patsy for Lucas's murder]]. When even the writers make it clear that they think you're a Scrappy...

* Arthur Petrelli from ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has a rather nasty backstory behind him. Originally a PosthumousCharacter, he was very suddenly brought in during Volume Three, revealed to have by far the most [[GameBreaker broken power]] in the series yet and personal designs on world domination. Further, the very first episodes introducing him were explicitly devoted to his killing off basically every non-Sylar villain the series had cultivated up to that point. Maury Parkamn, the "Nightmare Man" sold in Season 2 as being [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil worse than Sylar]], met his end by Arthur, as did the immensely popular Adam Monroe, widely regarded as ''the'' MagnificentBastard to beat. The thing was, though, Maury and Adam were products of Season 2, which was plagued by a writer's strike. While the writers were on strike, replacements were brought in who built up Maury and Adam. The original writers, upon returning, immediately set out to dismantle the work of their replacements, who they [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=19125 had a major grudge with]]. Thus, Arthur Petrelli was retooled as a Voldemort-esque GreaterScopeVillain. This didn't quite work the way the Volume 3 writers planned, due to Arthur being a [[InvincibleVillain Boring Invincible Villain]] who regularly slipped into VillainSue territory.

** When ''Ebert & Roeper'' was retooled into ''At the Movies'' in 2008, now hosted by Ben Mankiewicz and Ben Lyons, the response from longtime viewers quickly escalated into {{Hatedom}}. Lyons became the subject of mockery at [[http://www.efilmcritic.com/feature.php?cat=benlyons&latest=1 Efilmcritic.com's "Ben Lyons Quote of the Week"]], and even Roger Ebert himself [[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2008/10/eberts_little_rule_book.html called him out for his poor work]], not naming him but quoting his reviews from the show -- arguably Lyons qualified as an actual Scrappy. A year later, they were dropped and replaced by Michael Phillips and A.O. Scott (from ''Chicago Tribune'' and ''New York Times'', respectively).

** In season 8, one of the biggest complaints of what is considered the most polarizing season of the show was the introduction of [[GenericGuy Henry]] and [[SatelliteLoveInterest Coop]], Paige and Phoebe's love interest and eventual husbands, after literally putting Leo in Stasis to introduce them.
***The fact that Coop was introduced within 7 episodes to the end of the series, and their romance didn't start until at least his second episode after introduction, people found it rather hard to believe him as Phoebe's TrueLove after the wildly popular rollercoaster relationship she shared with Cole Turner.

** Season 5 sees all of the Team Arrow members apart from Oliver and Felicity being replaced with brand new people (Except for Curtis, who was introduced last season), which brought in many complaints that they are not as likeable as the original Team Arrow.

** Season 5 sees all of the Team Arrow members apart from Oliver and Felicity being replaced with brand new people (Except for Curtis, who was introduced last season), which brought in many complaints that they are not as likeable as the original Team Arrow. It doesn't help that the writers basically threw away the [[TrueCompanions family dynamic]] that many fans like in favour of something you could compare to a pair of teachers and a misbehaving class.
