** Before we carry on with ''Central Fiction'' and future development, let's step back a little. See, Terumi and Relius were shaped up to be pretty good villains that could have served as [[TrueFinalBoss the primary villains of the whole series]]. Then in ''Chronophantasma'', they were demoted in favor of their boss, the being they got to possess Saya in the first place: [[GodOfEvil Hades Izanami]], who proceeds to just show an exercise of extreme VillainSue-ness that makes the two jealous. The fans could have forgiven that if she was a bit interesting... unfortunately she's shown to be nothing but a GenericDoomsdayVillain whose goal is "[[OmnicidalManiac death to all]], for I am death incarnate", the demotion of Terumi and Relius were also executed very suddenly at the end of the game, thus she had little time to prove herself as her BigBad status on her own outside of 'posing as the Imperator Librarius' (and in a way, suddenly taking credits of Terumi and Relius' achievements in the past), and with Saya as the vessel, she also loses point in originality (even a [[NightmareFuel pants-wettingly scary true form]] would be an improvement, if she had one). And to make matters worse, while the next game really sets up to be the final confrontation about her, Act I focuses on her {{Dragon}}, Nine the Phantom, [[DragonWithAnAgenda doing her own thing to strike back at her]]. Overlapping with ReplacementScrappy[[note]]Where a character might be perfectly okay on their own if they weren't replacing another well-established character[[/note]], this is one villain that just fails to attain the LoveToHate status, and that's saying something when you realize that the previous 'villains' or 'final bosses' in the series (Nu, Terumi, Mu, Relius) at least have that going for them. How the remaining acts deal with her is yet to be witnessed, but the current prospects are grim. Things actually ''do'' look up to her, since she's going to be playable in the second act, but then there's the dangers of being an SNKBoss to the most irritating degree, something Arc System Works is pretty good at.

* Manpuku from {{Okamiden}} is the only partner in the game who receives any degree of hate, and they hate him ''hard''. Being the final partner in the game, you'd think he'd have something that would actually be comparable to [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kurow]]'s flight, but all he does is serve as a source of fire, whereas there could've simply been conveniently-placed torches instead. People are also annoyed by how unchanged his character is by the end of his arc; the reason why he got dragged into the story is simply because he ate too much, and you'd ''think'' that by the end of the story he'd stop, but ''no'', you're greeted by a scene of him gorging himself during the ending. Just look at any fanart of Chibiterasu and his partners, they leave Manpuku out of them most of the time, they hate him ''that'' much.

* [[BigBad Jasper Batt Jr.]] from ''NoMoreHeroes 2'' 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.

* Angie is pretty much the pariah of ''VideoGame/TraumaCenter'' community because of her self-righteous attitude, constant criticizing of Derek ([[JerkassHasAPoint though he does admittedly deserve it sometimes]]) [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalkig and never calls by his first name]] when most other people did. Many fans found it extremely hard to forgive Angie for [[spoiler: telling Linda Reid, ''[[EmoTeen a depressed, suicidal, teenage patient]]'', that [[DesignatedHero "she should just die"]]]]. But the worst thing she's ever done by far is [[spoiler: blaming Derek for Emilio's death, saying that he became arrogant and negligent by relying on his Healing Touch. This consequently causes Derek to go into a depressive spiral and ''lose his Healing Touch for a whole chapter!'' This is made even more infuriating when you realize that Derek had ''three patients'' to go through before he could even get to Emilio! Not only that, but those three patients were infected with GUILT. Angie seems to be under the impression that somehow, despite Derek frantically trying to rationalize how to handle three patients ''and'' deal with a brand new Kiryaki strand rapid fire, that he could've at all been laid back enough to waste time before getting to Emilio. Bonus points if you used the Healing Touch during one of the three which means Angie's argument of you being dependent on it goes out the window since you'd no longer have had it.]] Adding insult to the injury, [[KarmaHoudini she is always seen to be right and is never questioned by anyone]] despite her bitchiness.

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', Cedric was massively hated for his useless advice (screaming "watch out" or some variant thereof ''when it's already too late to prevent the danger from killing you''), [[CowardlySidekick cowardice]] and annoying voice in the CD version. So much so that in SpaceQuest 4, hitting him in an arcade game earns you points, and the narrator spoofs him in Space Quest VI.

** Rebecca Chambers, TheMedic, is hated similarly to how Ashley is. Also, the fact that she got more spotlight than fan favorite Barry Burton (i.e [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil0 getting her own game]]) irked many for a long time.

** Rebecca Chambers, TheMedic, is hated similarly to how Ashley is. Also, the fact that she got more spotlight than fan favorite Barry Burton (i.e [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil0 getting her own game]]) irked many for a long time. To rub more salt into the wound, the series' creator has gone public and admitted Rebecca was his least favorite character.

** ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction Central Fiction]]'' [[TaintedByThePreview isn't even out yet]] and Naoto Kurogane is already getting the cold shoulder. If the [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} near-blatant name lift]] wasn't reason enough to hate him, he's the main protagonist of ''another'' [[NoExportForYou Japan-exclusive]] manga spinoff, ''Bloodedge Experience'', and his "generic protagonist" personality vibes do little to endear him to fans, nor does his many striking similarities to Ragna the Bloodedge (the core story's main protagonist). Further, he has near zero foreshadowing in the games (which is saying something, as even the aforementioned Celica A. Mercury was posthumously developed before ''Chronophantasma'') and his first line in the trailer revolves around destroying a Murakumo, though it's not clear which (each of the three has their own fanbase, and two of them are protagonistic). Already the Western fanbase dreads the level of focus he's going to get in the inevitable console release, which could push him dangerously close to CreatorsPet territory. But what arguably makes him a special little snowflake, however, is that apocryphal stories suggest that ''Bloodedge Experience'' is selling poorly compared to the other manga and that Mori tried to push copies out during EVO; the truth to these stories may be questionable, but if they're even half-true, then it could be a clear warning that ''[[UpToEleven even the Japanese think this is getting old]]''. Strangely enough, this is played with in-universe, with [[spoilers:some of the cast becoming unduly antagonistic towards Naoto's existence because it threatens Ragna's]]. ** Before we carry on with ''Central Fiction'' and future development, let's step back a little.
