* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'': Prime Minister Honest. He's the BigBad in a series where the single most popular character by an intensely wide margin (Esdeath) is merely TheDragon to him, which is surprisingly easy to forget about. This wouldn't be bad enough to label him this trope, if only he weren't one of the single most [[{{Narm}} narmy]] villain people could think of. Every single scene with him has him straddling the MoralEventHorizon in some way, yet he comes across as nothing more than an annoying, over-the-top and flat BigBadWannabe. In a fictional example of XPacHeat, instead of viewers wanting to see him get his comeuppance, they view him as a waste of time at the expense of other, mostly more popular antagonists and want him to go away.

* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'': Prime Minister Honest is often cited as one of the most disliked characters in the franchise. He's the BigBad in a series where the single most popular character by an intensely wide margin (Esdeath) is merely TheDragon to him, which is surprisingly easy to forget about. This wouldn't be bad enough to label him this trope, if only he weren't the single [[{{Narm}} narmiest]] villain people could think of. Every single scene with him has him straddling the MoralEventHorizon in some way, yet he comes across as nothing more than an annoying, over-the-top and flat BigBadWannabe. However, instead of being reviled as a villain usually would be, as was the IntendedAudienceReaction here, people simply find Honest to be a colossal waste of time and want him to go away to leave more focus to the considerably more popular antagonists. Basically, it's the fictional equivalent of XPacHeat.

* ''Manga/{{Himegoto}}'': The student council members 18+, Unko, and Bell are disliked by nearly every fan depsite being major characters. They constantly harrass and bully the main character and are almost ''never'' called out on it, and they have very few non-negated PetTheDog moments. All 3 of them also suffer from bland characterization. 18+ gets the most hate for her perversion and the fact that she's pushed as the main love interest for no real reason.

* ''Anime/BakuganBattleBrawlers'': Baron is the show's scrappy. He's an [[FanBoy idolizing twit]] who looks like a strong man but has a voice that is higher pitched than his ''three year old sister''. He's generally incompetent, and mocked as the worst character even on the show. Still, he's done nothing to earn himself any pity.

** Bulma is largely well-liked, but she fell into this during the Namek saga, where she's completely useless to the plot and does nothing but bitch to everyone else. (Granted, by the end of the arc, some viewers sympathised with [[ArcFatigue how much she was sick of Namek.]])

** ClassRepresentative Ume Shiraume. Her chief character traits are slapping Satou and being a PsychoLesbian to (mostly) Oshiroi. She does [[TakeThatScrappy end up being soundly defeated in a bento brawl]] in Volume 10.

** ClassRepresentative Ume Shiraume. Her chief character traits are slapping beating the crap out of Satou and being a PsychoLesbian to (mostly) Oshiroi. She does [[TakeThatScrappy end up being soundly defeated in a bento brawl]] in Volume 10.10 and becomes [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap more tolerable]] after that.

* Gino Weinberg is without a doubt, the blandest character in the series. He seems to serve as either female fanservice or somebody to fill time during the down moments of R2. His role is easily filled by other, more important characters, and his presence in the promotional art of R2 seems to imply he was to have a bigger role, but in the final show his only important moments are crippling and destroying Lelouch's Knightmare Frame and some poorly-done attempt to make him into a romantic interest for Kallen. He's almost completely excluded from the epilogue in the final episode, appearing in a photograph of Ohgi's wedding but outside of that is absent. As of the release of the second compilation film he has once again found himself in an incredibly prominent focus on the poster, implying that *maybe* he will actually do something or become something other than a FlatCharacter.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': [[TheChick Keiko]] is disliked by many fans - [[DieForOurShip curiously enough]] most of them are YaoiFangirls or believe that RealWomenNeverWearDresses, funny that. In the manga, however, Keiko does have more of a personality and it isn't revolved around Yusuke's.
