* ''Literature/LittleBrother:'' The Severe Haircut Woman, or [[spoiler: Carrie Johnstone]], the BigBad of the book. The reader is supposed to hate her because she's the villain. However, due to the Anvilliciousness of the story, readers ended up hating her because she's a [[GenericDoomsdayVillain one-dimensional]] StrawmanPolitical. Rather than caring about the safety of the country, she joined the Department of Homeland Security and enforced its strict security methods just ForTheEvulz, and then [[spoiler: waterboards the protagonist, Marcus]], just to unnecessarily drive the point on how evil she is.

* ''Literature/TheFourGospels'': Judas. Portraying him as anything other than an outright villain will get you some accusations of heresy. Heck ''Literature/DivineComedy'' depicts him chewed by {{Satan}}. [[MisaimedFandom That's a lot of hate towards a character who gave Jesus the opportunity to die for humanity's sins.]] Eventually though, [[AlasPoorScrappy Judas]] manages to subvert this. He realizes [[MoralEventHorizon how awful]] betraying Jesus was, and ends up hanging himself. Some theologians even speculate that, as Peter (who betrayed Jesus three times) was forgiven, Judas could've been, but [[TearJerker alas]]... Many texts have tried to subvert this. The Gospel of Judas is a great example, picturing Judas as a close disciple who doesn't betray Jesus, [[ThanatosGambit but acts on his secret orders.]] Some don't go quite that far, but portray him as more a WellIntentionedExtremist who got tired of waiting for Jesus to do something other than go around telling people to be nice to each other and tried to force the issue. Neither of them really [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescue him from the Scrappy heap]], because the parts about him embezzling money from the Disciples' communal fund are still there.
** ''Literature/TheLastTemptationOfChrist'' features a similar portrayal of Judas as a devoted follower (that is, once JC starts preaching instead of making crosses for the Romans to crucify Jews upon). In fact, during the titular final temptation, it is Judas who appears and reminds JC of his responsibility and the costs if he were to choose another path. It doesn't really help his case that he took money for it; specifically 30 pieces of silver, the standard price of a slave at that time.

** Daario Naharis is hated by many readers for a number of reasons, the main being his [[InformedAbility constant claims of being an amazing swordsman]], his [[SmallNameBigEgo arrogance]], his disrespectful attitude towards in-story legends like Barristan Selmy, and his cartoonishly flamboyant descriptions. Despite this, he is adored by Daenerys and therefore makes up a lot of her monologue during the disliked [[ArcFatigue Meereen storyline]].

** Lysa Arryn isn't particularly popular, either, due to her GenreBlindness, wanting to see [[EnsembleDarkhorse Tyrion Lannister]] executed and [[spoiler: indirectly causing the entire plot to kick off.]] Not to mention she still breastfeeds her six year old son...

** Many of the characters in Daenerys very disliked Meereenese storyline in "A Dance with Dragons". Dany's Meereenese supporting cast in A Dance With Dragons is very unpopular for a variety of reasons - difficult names, perceived blandness and the idea that the conflict in Meereen is ultimately irrelevant. Daario Naharis draws particular ire for his negative effect on Dany's character.
*** Dany herself to a lot of readers as a matter a fact. In a series where stupidity tends to be swiftly rewarded with predictable results, she gets away with plenty of blunders yet keeps on surviving because she happens to have a very strong army, very competent subordinates and of course, dragons. Far more competent characters can only dream of ever having such resources at their disposal. Her very unpleasant comments on Ned Stark don't help matters, showing how out of touch she is with reality.

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' has Cassie. A large part of the fandom thinks she's hypocritical and self-righteous and just can't stand her in general. Plus, in the final book, she's [[spoiler:the only character to get a happy ending with the rest of the cast strongly implied to have died in the BolivianArmyEnding]].

It doesn't help that many of her books are {{Filler}}, and the ones that do give her plot-relevance tend to do it by either giving an AssPull for how she's special (''Megamorphs 4'' making her a "temporal anomaly") or forcibly benching the rest of the team (''The Sickness'', where the other Animorphs were all [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sick]]) Plus, in the final book, she's [[spoiler:the only character to get a happy ending with the rest of the cast strongly implied to have died in the BolivianArmyEnding]].

** Ron Weasley and Ginny Weasley mostly because they are crucial parts of the future of Canon Pairings. RonTheDeathEater is called that for a reason, as oppose to Insertsomeone else The Death Eater.

** Daisy actually ended up being RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap once she revealed her HiddenDepths and got some CharacterDevelopment. Millie, however, is only despised even more by the fandom, once she turned out to be an [[AbusiveParents abusive mother]].
