** Canary Mary. '''Canary. ''FUCKING.'' Mary.''' She and [[ThatOneSidequest her races]] are utterly reviled by gamers to this day for the rage she induced. L.O.G., another scrappy, even ''taunts you about her'' during the loading screens.

* A newcomer of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 7'', Lucky Chloe, has turned out to be this based off fan reactions. Many people despises her for her high pitched voice, GratuitousEnglish, her character design, being a Japanese idol with CatGirl motif, meaning that she totally and deliberately caters to the {{Moe}} crowd, and even her moveset. She even invoked TaintedByThePreview for some.



* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'':
** The NPC known as "Guide" who appears in every world upon creation, runs around and will move into any house you build. He's supposed to give tips to new players, but [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper there's no way to get rid of him]]; even if he dies, he respawns within a minute. But the worst of all is that he often [[TooDumbToLive opens your house's front doors during night when there's zombies outside]], so it makes them able to enter your house and kill you. Even the creators themselves find him incredibly annoying: they walled him in and trapped him in their LetsPlay (which doesn't help anyway because he can teleport). Redigit even added an item called the [[TakeThatScrappy Guide Voodoo Doll]], [[spoiler:[[VideogameCrueltyPunishment which summons The Wall of Flesh if thrown into the lava pits of the Underworld.]]]]
*** Since 1.0.5, he has become much more useful as he can show you everything you can craft with an item if you show it to him. Crafting is no longer a guessing game, and it certainly makes the world a whole lot kinder to new players who try to experience the game without immediately resorting to a wiki.
*** Lampshaded in the Steam card for him. "He thought it would be funny to open your door and let zombies in, you thought it would be fun to feed his soul to the lord of eternal nightmares."
** As of 1.2.4, The Guide's Scrappy-ness is quickly being eclipsed by The Angler, who is the only child character in the game...which is a title he tarnishes by being an utterly infuriating SpoiledBrat. He's bossy and demanding, he treats your character like dirt, and is constantly pulling "pranks" on the other residents, such as putting undead fish into their furniture and piranha teeth into chairs. And you can only do [[ScrappyMechanic one of his fishing quests per day]], which is especially aggravating when you're trying to get the rarer rewards which have an already infuriatingly low drop rate. Even worse for those who want to give him the same treatment as The Guide, InfantImmortality is in full effect, even lampshaded somewhat. If his HP is ever reduced to 0, [[NoSell he simply poofs away in a puff of smoke, with the chat log "<Name> Has left."]] This being in a game that contains voodoo magic, bloodthirsty organs, and hell itself.



* ''VideoGame/ValdisStoryAbyssalCity'': Sezzi, the leader of Ishk, sends you into one of the game's most notorious {{That One Level}}s in the name of retrieving his ''hammer''. Once you've done this and (apparently) gained his trust, he tells you that he had all the divine keys destroyed when the enemy showed up. He then asks you to storm two separate enemy bases and kill the generals inside, which is about as hard as it sounds, so that he can get the materials to forge a new key. Upon doing this, he pulls a divine key out of his pocket, meaning that the past couple hours of gameplay were entirely pointless. If you're playing as Wyatt, add the fact that he knows Wyatt's father and still gave him the runaround, and if you're playing as Reina or Gilda, add blatant misogyny coupled with a JustJokingJustification. All three of these characters echo the player's frustration by giving him a death threat, which you sadly never get to follow up on.

* The ''[[SpyroTheDragon Spyro]]'' series has Moneybags, the bear who locks you out of special abilities, levels, and in the case of the third game, one-off playable characters, until you pay him a certain number of gems. He acts like a smug jerk about it the whole time, too. Some players found the part in ''Spyro 3'' where [[spoiler:you chase him down and headbutt/flame him until he gives back all of the gems he took from you]] [[CatharsisFactor more satisfying]] than ''beating the final boss''.

* ''Videogame/{{inFAMOUS}}''
** Trish. She treats Cole like absolute dog shit for the majority of her screen time. Yes, [[spoiler: a radioactive sphere he was holding exploded, giving Cole superpowers at the cost of thousands of lives, one of which was Trish's sister Amy]] but Cole didn't deserve it because it was an accident. Few players liked her and some were glad to [[spoiler: see her die.]]
** Moya, for being a heartless bitch who uses Cole to accomplish her goals with no regard for his well being [[spoiler: as well as lying about being John White's wife to appear sympathetic]] which is to steal the Ray Sphere and give it to her to use for her own needs. She's pretty much devoid of any redeeming qualities and to anyone who hasn't read the inFAMOUS comics, a KarmaHoudini.
** Zeke for being an annoying, fat hick who praises Cole's new powers while secretly wanting them for himself. The straw that broke the camel's back was probably when he [[spoiler: activated the Ray Sphere, killing several thousand more people in an attempt to get powers of his own, only for it to fail because Zeke doesn't have the Conduit gene. Then he betrays you and sides with Kessler because of a second chance to get powers.]] Needless to say, many hated him for it. He was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in ''Videogame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}'' due to the fact that he was deeply regretful of his past actions, became more mature and TookALevelInBadass.
** Nix. Although she is intended to being a JerkassWoobie, few players feel any sympathy for her. She grew up eating shit by the bayou, [[spoiler: Bertrand killed her family with a Ray Sphere]] and now she's forced to live as a freak with pyrokinetic powers. Depressing, right? Wrong. Nix is downright sadistic, showing little empathy for anyone who isn't Cole (and she was probably only using him) or her "pets" (Corrupted Swamp Monsters that she had tamed) with most of her Evil Karma suggestions being dumb and dangerous. The only reason she decided to kill The Beast was because her pets died in one of his Ray Field Blasts and because she didn't want him creating more Conduits since, if everyone was a Conduit, she'd go back to being an outcast. Sucker Punch have made it very difficult to like her.
** Hank for being everything that the public believes a "Bio-terrorist" to be: an unrepentant criminal who uses his powers for evil. He also [[spoiler: sells out Delsin to Augustine, which results in her killing Reggie.]] Even some of the most devoted Good Karma players were tempted to [[spoiler: kill him.]] His only redeeming quality is the love he has for his daughter.



* Moneybags in ''VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon''. He will usually try to get Spyro to give him some of his hard-earned gems so he can proceed on his quest. If you refuse to give him your gems, he will mock you for it.

** Meilin also annoys quite a few players, and she gets ''even more'' screentime.

* Among the characters in ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' [[spoiler:that don't die soon after introduction]], Hammer the Supplier seems like a very divisive character. From the moment he's introduced, a player [[LoveItOrHateIt either hates him or adores him]]. [[spoiler:Hammer has his lowest point with the audience when he shoots and kills Medena, Elly's mother, and runs off with Krelian and Miang. Later, he is encountered cybernetically integrated into a gear, and Fei's group are forced to eliminate him. But after this, Hammer's character becomes deeply humanized and [[TheWoobie woobified]] by Elly and Rico, an example of RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. Neither could hate Hammer for the things he did, and Rico in particular was adamantly convinced that none of it was Hammer's fault, strongly implying a belief that Hammer was not to blame for his actions. For the rest of the story, Rico occasionally comments on memories with Hammer with transparent fondness.]]

* If there's one character who manages to be the scrappy in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', or even any of the ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'' in general, it's Elise Schwarzer, adopted younger sister of the protagonist. It's mostly thanks to her BrotherSisterIncest storyline that was poorly executed compared to the better and more popular [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky Estelle and Joshua adopted sibling romance]], her terrible stats and skills, and at least 75% of [[TheHero Rean's]] angst issues comes from him wanting to protect her. That and she barely gets any screen time as to why she's even crushing on him in the first place.

* [[BigBad Jasper Batt Jr.]] from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' is immensely hated by fans due to his annoying voice, ridiculous fashion sense, the fact that he lets his henchmen doing all of the killing for him, and for being a FinalBoss that goes from easy, to ThatOneBoss.
