* Many a fan of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' profoundly hates Seiya for only winning his fights due to support from others. His author, Masami Kurumada, seemed to get the message when he made ''Anime/BtX'', which features many {{exp|y}}ies from his previous works, as was his style. Seiya's expy Teppei, while still very brash and headstrong, has a strong resolve to stand on his own two feet and delivers. To make sure he didn't veer off too much in the opposite direction, however, he ''does'' see what happens when he ignores his B't [[spoiler: when he nearly dies against the 5th Point Soldier]], and a balance is struck. More than a few fans agree Teppei is much more likable.
** Also, the fans seem a lot fonder to Seiya ever since his appearance in ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega''.

** As of post-time skip, [[{{Tsundere}} Nami]] has since matured. Character Development was starting to kick in already at Thriller Bark, where her concern for money didn't get in the way of her friendship with others.

** Also happened to Karin when Sasuke sacrificing her to kill Danzo turned her into TheWoobie. Although she survived, she made it clear she didn't care about Sasuke after what he did. Not only did this remove her from the shipping equation, but she also displayed, what some fans believe, more common sense than other characters in the series. Although that fell flat when she reunites with Team Taka after that and [[EasilyForgiven easily forgives Sasuke]] after he just awkwardly mutters a "Sorry, Karin". While some found that hilarious, a lot of readers didn't take that well and quickly called her the most pathetic female character in the manga (which is saying something).

** Sakura went through this at the start of Part II due to CharacterDevelopment, [[TookALevelInBadass becoming stronger]], and becoming a [[TheMedic competent medical ninja]]. However, she quickly became TheScrappy again because she didn't really do anything significant after [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome her awesome fight against Sasori]]. She all but cemented her Scrappy status after her [[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] [[FalseConfession fake love confession]] to Naruto in [[ShipSinking Chapter 469]], her inability to kill the defected-Sasuke, and generally crying and relying on Naruto again like in Part I. However, her CoolBigSis role around both [[TwiceShy Naruto and Hinata]] in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' and [[ShipperOnDeck genuinely trying to bring them together]] did manage to regain some of her former glory that she once had at the start of Part II. Unfortunately, that ''also'' didn't last for too long, and she ultimately cemented herself as a major BaseBreakingCharacter as of ''Manga/{{Naruto Gaiden}}''.

* A rather odd example: ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s Sasuke has been considered a Scrappy for the longest time [[AmericansHateTingle in America]]. But once he'd been pitted against Danzo, American fans have actually started ''[[BlackAndGreyMorality rooting]]'' for him. Though this may be more because it's his SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome than him just being the lesser of two evils. Others root for Danzo instead, as they think he is making pretty good points and agree with his way to lead the village.

Sadly, she quickly became TheScrappy again in the ''Kage Summit'' arc, after her fake love confession to Naruto, her inability to kill the [[spoiler:defected Sasuke]] and generally not doing anything besides crying and relying on Naruto again like in Part 1. However, her CoolBigSis role around both Naruto and Hinata during ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last]]'' and overall supporting them does genuinely managed to regains some of her former glory that she once had at the start of ''Shippuden''. Unfortunately it also didn't last for too long, and she ultimately becomes a major BaseBreakingCharacter as of ''Naruto Gaiden''.
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': Bandou came across as a Scrappy because, despite being a badass, he was also an unlikeable, obnoxious one-note character who merely enjoyed killing and was intent on getting Lucy. Even when he became a HandicappedBadass, his rather stale portrayal left people wanting more. Then Bandou began to interact more with Mayu and proved to be intelligent, as well as being a badass, by daily cleaning garbage from the beach to prevent Lucy's extensive arms to throw them as projectiles and showed a JerkWithAHeartOfGold side to himself. It also helped that Bandou proved to be one of the more realistic, gray-scaled characters in a series that was more inclined to show everyone to be jerks.
