** Claptrap (aka [=CL4P=]-TP) has seen his share of online criticism for seemingly attempting to blend the Scrappy with GIR of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fame in order to create the most obnoxious, attention-grabbing, so random marketing hook as possible. [[http://www.figures.com/forums/news/10271-claptrap-talks-about-his-upcoming-action-figure.html Oh look, there's even a toy.]] Not to mention the fact that his voice sounds ''awfully'' similar to TomKenny, even though he wasn't the one who provided the voice of Claptrap.

** In a whole-company scale, the staff at SNK Playmore seems to hate the Eolith-created K9999 very much and replace him with Nameless, since K9999 was made into such a CaptainErsatz of [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]] by Eolith's own admission that this did not sit well on SNK Playmore. Which is okay, because most fans didn't like him either.

** And then, one of the first screens released for Killzone 3 is Rico. And the fandom raged.

** And then, one of the first screens released for Killzone 3 is Rico. And the fandom raged. Thankfully, they dialed down his most annoying traits in the game itself.

** It's uncommon to find an [=SRW=] protagonist for players to dislike, but it's even rarer to have a protagonist become outright ''despised''. Enter [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsK Mist Rex]] of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK''. Where to start? He's an idiot that can't read the mood: when everyone is surprised at the Anime/{{Over|manKingGainer}}devil disappearing, he just goes "Man, that was a tough enemy, huh?" for no reason. He speaks of things like the ''slavery'' back on his home planet nonchalantly, even if it involves friends of his. His recklessness forces him to [[LeeroyJenkins attack stronger villains without thinking twice about it]]...''repeatedly''. Worse, he's in a LoveTriangle with two other heroines that aren't all that interesting either, but manages to [[RomanticPlotTumor overtake a decent chunk of the plot]], including [[DemotedToExtra pushing aside]] the better LoveTriangle from ''Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar''. To cap it off, his HumongousMecha is ugly as hell and when combined with the robot of his chosen girl, it becomes ''even uglier'', if that's possible. In Mist's defense, the previous NintendoDS [=SRW=], ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'', had some of the [[EnsembleDarkhorse most popular and beloved originals]], so he suffers a bit from ToughActToFollow, but even with that aside, Rex is just bland and uninspired, to the point where fans want him to NOT appear in ''Original Generation'', or if he even appears, the first thing to do is ''have his personality fixed'', through rewriting or some heroes calling out his bullshit (and judging by the record of how the OG Saga do variations nearing FixFic, it's highly possible, if Mist is in at all). The hatedom surrounding Mist has since elevated him into MemeticMutation: occasionally when there's a new [=SRW=] announced, {{Troll}}s start picking up his scrappiness and photoshop Mist into said game, just to annoy people.

* Mack and Cooke from ''LostOdyssey'' are seen as annoying little brats who take away game time from much more interesting or better-developed characters. And the cherry on top is that they were almost useless in battle aside from teaching skills to other (better) characters.

* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' has the shop [=NPCs=] in charge of grinding gear and making them stronger. The higher you grind an item, the greater the chance of potential failure and loss of grinds (especially in rare weapons). Each NPC is hated for their own reasons: Dudu, who works on odd-numbered blocks, has a condescending personality and seniority, being hated by players since day one (enough that a room item was released in the form of a punching bag bearing his visage); while Monica, who works on even-numbered blocks, is a {{Moe}} {{Dojikko}} ShrinkingViolet who cries every time she fails a grind. There are some that actually hate Monica more than Dudu, who has become more of a character one loves to hate, as opposed to the seething loathing Monica receives.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'': Adam Malkovitch. He's widely considered a JerkStu for his cold, sometimes careless behavior, and for imposing the now infamous [[ScrappyMechanic authorization mechanic]] on to Samus/The player. The fact that he was built up as a great man when ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' came out makes some of his behavior rather shocking to some people. But probably the biggest reason is Samus's sometimes creepy relationship with him, which has spawned [[http://moonbase.rydia.net/mental/blog/gaming/metroid-other-m-the-elephant/article.html entire articles]] going into how [[UnfortunateImplications messed up]] it is. The short version is that Samus acts like he loves her like a daughter ([[RelationshipWritingFumble this didn't stop people from interpreting that she liked him in a far different way]]), but Adam, on the other hand, is mostly indifferent (the No-Varia run is a good example) to outright cruel. The fact that Samus takes things like disabling all of her weapons or [[spoiler:''getting shot and nearly killed by Adam'']] like it was nothing made things quite worse.

** Yun-Seong, for holding tightly to an IdiotBall for three games and being HotBlooded combined with what is largely seen as an annoying English voice. Seong Mi-Na's role in IV is more or less making sure that he doesn't hurt himself.

[[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap However, fans looked up to him better]] when he's absent at ''V'' and Patroklos (see below) proved to be even worse than Yun-Seong at his worst.
