* [[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.

* While most of the original characters from ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn'' 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]].

** 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.

[[folder:Stand-Up Comedy]]
* Dane Cook once discussed how he believes this trope to be TruthInTelevision, noting that every group of friends seems to have [[TheFriendNobodyLikes one person that no one likes yet they hang out with anyways.]] He specifically mentions an old friend of his named Brian who hanged out with Cook and his friends even though everyone in the group despised him with a passion. He also notes that anyone named Karen is instantly the Scrappy of any particular group.
-->"And if you're looking at me like "[[StopHavingFunGuy No Dane that's not true]]", ''you're the person''! You're the person nobody likes!

** The Tinker Gnomes, with their racial hat of BunglingInventor, fixation on RubeGoldbergMachine type inventions, annoyingly literal minded nature, rapid-fire speech and super-long, complicated names are yet another PluckyComicRelief race that instead many people strongly detest.

** The Tinker Gnomes, with their racial hat of BunglingInventor, fixation on RubeGoldbergMachine type inventions, annoyingly literal minded nature, rapid-fire speech and super-long, complicated names are yet another PluckyComicRelief race that instead many people strongly detest. The facts that they end up prizing failure over success (to the point a device that works on the first try is a horrifying thought) and that their mere existence ''enforces'' MedievalStasis because it's convinced everyone through bad examples that technology is inherently terrible don't help in the least.

* In the original ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', most of the Digidestined have a likeable personality and overall tolerable, however in ''Fanfic/Digimon02TheStoryWeNeverTold'', all of the Digidestined have reimagined personalities that can either be for better or for worse. However on the scrappy end of this side are Matt, Mimi, and Cody. Matt is hated for stubbornly denouncing the new generation Digidestined at every opportunity no matter how much they prove themselves. Mimi AlphaBitch tendencies got completely fladerized, as well as suffering from AesopAmnesia after the original adventure regarding her dislike of fighting. Cody is hated during Ken's redemption arc for completely refusing to believe that Ken has redeemed himself no matter how much he tried to do, even attempted to kill him.

* In the ''{{Exalted}}'' fandom, there are large sections who view the Solar Exalted in general as this, for anything from their significant power (they're supposed to be the mightiest of the Exalted), their perceived lack of interesting features (their powers are more human-based than the other Exalted, and part of the jump-off point is based around them being uninvolved in the world's history for more than a thousand years), their setting centrality, or ideas of them being entitled (the Solars having been tyrannical rulers in the distant past and some portrayed as expecting such authority to be handed to them by right).

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_Sans Comic Sans MS]] The font with the considerable HateDom, up to the point that many "Death to Comic Sans MS" websites, Facebook pages etc. exist. It was originally designed for "casual and informal" use according to Microsoft themselves, but it became used widespread for about everything, up to formal documents and grave stones. Which is probably why it got the backlash.

Added DiffLines:

** Jace Beleran has a sizable hatedom, in part because in the flavor text of cards he comes off as condescending and arrogant, in part because he is printed on many different cards (many of which are powerful, and a couple of which have been GameBreakers) over and above other blue planeswalkers who are arguably more interesting (he is the only mono-blue planeswalker to regularly get depicted in cards), and because of a perceived story bias.
