* [[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.

* The Recorder is an instrumental example; while most instruments are [[BaseBreaker base breakers]] already, none of them are as loathed as the recorder thanks to the [[BrownNote not-so]][[HellIsThatNoise -pretty]] [[MostAnnoyingSound tune]] it makes. It doesn't help that it's required to learn this instrument in most elementary schools, regardless of musical talent or interest.

* Samuel Haight from ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness''. His original concept (kinfolk who wanted to kill werewolves to become one himself) wasn't too bad, but then more adventures were written with him and he ended up getting powers from ''all'' the major gamelines (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Changeling) with Paradox immunity and the ability to VillainExitStageLeft. GMs were ''encouraged'' to always let him escape at the end. He was hated for being a blatant VillainSue. Eventually, the writers caught on and he was [[TakeThatScrappy killed by a Paradox blast, and his soul was forged into an ashtray in]] [[Wraith/TheOblivion the underworld]].
** Eventually the writers realized this and created an entire adventure devoted to killing him, and then had his soul forged into an ashtray.

** Kender. Maybe it's the way they're almost always played as ChaoticStupid -- which is based on the fact that's basically [[FearlessFool exactly]] [[CuriousAsAMonkey how]] they are described in-setting. Maybe it's because they seem rather out of place in a [[CrapsackWorld world as crapsacky as Dragonlance]]. Whatever the case, they are usually the element most named as loathsome about the setting, despite the fact they are the official PluckyComicRelief of the setting.

Maybe intended to be Dragonlance's PluckyComicRelief, but instead have turned into one of ''the'' most hated races out there.

Whatever the case, they are usually the element most named as loathsome their racial personality traits ([[CuriousAsAMonkey childlike innocence and curiosity]], [[FearlessFool fearlessness]], [[KleptomaniacHero chronic kleptomania]], [[NeverMyFault denying having stole anything when confronted about it]]) are just begging to be played as ChaoticStupid, to the setting, despite the fact they are the official PluckyComicRelief of the setting.point where it would take a very creative player to play a Kender character who ''wasn't'' ChaoticStupid.

* ''Fanfic/TheLastSon'' has a number of issues - overpowered Superman, underpowered Marvel Universe characters, everyone worshipping Superman and anyone who doesn't automatically[=/=]qualifies as varying shades of 'evil' or 'moron', the LoveInterest is by far the worst. Alison Blaire is Superman's bonded mate and the two are spectacularly StrangledByTheRedString. This wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't unilaterally irritating. That said, Book 3 starts the process of rescuing her from the scrappy heap with a decent story arc.

** The vast majority of the fanbase seems to loathe Bumblebee for his SpotlightStealingSquad tendencies in the toyline. It's more likely these days for a line to have at least two Bumblebees than to have any kind of Megatron, and they're often shipped as the majority of a case assortment. At first this was acceptable because he was [[KidAppealCharacter popular enough among the kids]] that 'Bee toys vanished from shelves quickly, but sometime around 2010, Bumblebees became so saturated that every kid who wanted one owned one, leaving countless Bumblebees sitting on shelves and leaving no space for later waves that might carry more interesting figures. Of the bunch, the movieverse Bumblebee gets the most hate. He's the mascot of the base-breaking films, he's a pretty FlatCharacter, he receives nearly as many toys as the venerable G1 Optimus, and most of those toys just 'Bee with a slightly different pattern of yellow and black paint. Worst of all, due to their InkStainAdaptation status, he also pretty much forever locked in Bumblebee's design as "yellow and black muscle car" and ensured that Bumblebee toys from ''other lines'' now have to look the same as the dozens of Movie 'Bee toys already out there. Even the Masterpiece release of G1 Bumblebee got some scoffs.

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'': Parakewl, who is one dirty, cowardly . He betrays his team with a idiotic strategy and when one of his team members follows through with it, he turns his back at him because he doesn't trust him or his strategy at a crucial moment. He calls everybody trash and means it, sucks up to those more powerful when he immediately needs them, acts like he is in charge and has no sense of dignity whatsoever.

The author clearly intended his antics to just be normal kid-brother grade asshattery, but they're usually incredibly mean-spirited and deliberately designed to provoke Curtis, so that Barry can then sob to his mother that big mean ol' Curtis is trying to hit him for no reason at all, whereupon she will give Curtis chores to do for trying to hit his sweet, innocent brother, and Barry ice cream for being a manipulative sack of . Diane lacks the pattern recognition to notice that Curtis always has a very detailed description of the transgressions she doesn't believe Barry committed.

** ''IrregularWebcomic'' once had Mercutio confused that the absence of Clippy was supposed to be a software ''fault'', rather than, say, a reward from [[MachineWorship the Omnissiah]].
