* Opera has quite a few of these; ''BBC Music'' recently did an article about it, in fact. They tend to be one-dimensional stock villains, especially ones who are [[EthnicScrappy ethnic stereotypes]] (such as Monostatos from ''Theatre/TheMagicFlute'' or [[SpaceJews Mime]] from ''Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen'') or [[PuritySue Purity Sues/Stus]] (for example, Don Ottavio from ''DonGiovanni'').

* Izzy of the 1996 UsefulNotes/OlympicGames is considered one of the least popular Olympics mascots ever. His design is obnoxious and baffling; most people simply passed him off as a "giant blue sperm with legs." His video game wasn't even any good and played like a bad [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] clone. Not enough? The character was unpopular enough that ''Izzy's Quest for Olympic Gold'', a 30-minute-long animated special that stars the main character and aired on TNT, was never rerun after its initial airing and is [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes literally impossible to find online]] as a result. That's right, nobody liked him enough to bother preserving the special!

** In terms of canon characters [[{{Flanderization}} (which in and of themselves are heavily neutered)]], Celestia gets the worst of it for essentially being reduced to a female Celesto. And then there's [[spoiler:the aftermath of Twilight Sparkle's death, wherein Celestia (along with the rest of [[DesignatedHero Starfleet]]) [[UsefulNotes/VictimBlaming blames her for her own death]] [[UngratefulBitch even though she was trying to save her]]]]. Even EnsembleDarkhorse Brass Bolt is disappointed in the new Celestia.

* While most of the original characters from ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'' are detested, Rhymey is the least liked out of all of them, mostly because of his constant rhyming uses [[PainfulRhyme really bad rhymes]]. It doesn't help that he ends up being paired with [[TheCutie Fluttershy]].

Added DiffLines:

** From the first season, Inquirius was this due to her "[[FigureItOutYourself asking in questions]]" gimmick being her one character trait. She doesn't get it as badly as others, because [[PutOnABus she's barely used and said to have retired]].
** [[BigGood Grand Ruler Celesto]] gets this as well due to [[TheGodsMustBeLazy barely pitching in unless the plot calls for it]], not to mention his MoralEventHorizon in season 2 which involved making Twilight Sparkle think she was responsible for a family getting seriously hurt, all just to teach her a lesson.

Even EnsembleDarkhorse Brass Bolt is disappointed in the new Celestia.
** [[LivingStatue Goldwin]] is one because of [[TrappedByMountainLions his general uselessness to the main, overarching plot]] and for being little more than an excuse to plagiarize ''Series/TodaysSpecial''. Some have even argued that he's [[UpToEleven worse than Rhymey]].
** Both versions of [[AuthorAvatar Mykan Stevens]] get this treatment. Human Mykan gets it for basically being a MartyStu with enough intelligence to work for NASA as a teenager, and Pony Mykan is one because of his UngratefulBastard StopHelpingMe tendencies, pretty much mimicking the author himself.

* [[HandsomeLech Keenan Caine]] of ''BlissStage'' is a JerkAss. His KickTheDog moment in the continuing examples in the rules and being a [[TheCasanova Carefree Hedonist]] in game terms probably doesn't help much.

*** This is exactly the reason why formats exist ([[MoneyDearBoy apart from keeping up the income from the franchise]]). An old card becoming powerful way beyond intention due to new, stronger cards being printed, is not supposed to ruin the game. As it is these old cards ([[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Wrath of ]], Counterspell etc.) can only be used outside of vintage when the recent edition contained a reprint of said card. Most of these cards were made back when a powerful card cost 7 mana, was a 7/7 monster and had no effect at all.

** Blackwings, hoo boy... The Crimson Crisis-era Blackwings were a TierInducedScrappy for their ridiculous offensive power. And then Konami realized that they were selling and shoehorned their wielder, Crow, into the greater plot of ''5Ds,'' so that they could use him to shill even more Blackwings. What Konami failed to realize, however, is that the anime fanbase and the card game fanbase are largely separate, and the cardplayers use whatever's best at the time, not what's on the show ([[CCGImportanceDissonance which is usually crap anyway]]). Upon being promoted to the main cast, Crow's Blackwings went from a small set of powerful cards to a massive archetype comprised mostly of whatever he'd pulled from his ass to beat the MonsterOfTheWeek, and fans of the card game dropped the deck in droves. What was more, fans of the anime generally disliked Crow, and blamed the Blackwings for [[ExecutiveMeddling pointlessly shoving him into the series]] and [[InvincibleHero for being too powerful]] in a cast of mostly underdogs, making them loathed by ''both'' sectors of the fanbase. All this combined led to Duelist Pack Crow, a special all-Blackwing pack, being a complete sales failure. Konami seemingly finally took the hint, reducing Crow's role a good deal in the last arc of the series.
