*** Then again, due to the GreyAndGrayMorality thing in work, the Wingers have been treated rather horribly by both Kobolds and Humans, thus [[JerkassWoobie Chaco didn't have high opinions on them at the first place.]] He becomes less obnoxious afterwards.

It says something that recruiting [[CreepyAwesome Sid]] becomes one of the most hailed events in the game because he scares the creep out of Chaco in doing so, which haters think that it's 'putting Chaco in the most proper place: being abused'.

** In a more game-specific example, Irish from ''VideoGame/Battlefield4'' got quite a bit of hate, as all he does is panic, complain about anything ''anyone'' does and is insubordinate at multiple points. [[spoiler: At the end of the game, you have to pick between ordering either Irish or another character to kill themselves to stop an enemy combat vessel. Not only does this become a TakeThatScrappy to those who did not like him, but doing so rewards you with one of the best light machineguns for multiplayer.]]

** Guest characters tend to be [[BaseBreaker Base Breakers]] [[TierInducedScrappy among the fans]]. Offenders include [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi]] and [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] and ComicBook/{{Spawn}} in ''Soul Calibur II'' ([=PS2=], [=GameCube=], and Xbox respectively) - Heihachi due his lack of weapon making him impossible to see in an Invisible match, as well as being the only fighter in in a weapons based fighting game to not actually use a weapon. Link due to super-spammable attacks that make him a pain to fight against as a cpu while being at the bottom of the tier list making it unlikely for tournament players to want to play as him. Spawn for feeling [[AnachronismStew out of place]] in the setting and due to his axes having nothing to do with his character from the comics. [[StarWars Yoda and Starkiller]] in Soul Calibur IV due to the former's immunity to grabs/high attacks and the latter's brokenness in Arcade Mode yet relative uselessness as a player character. Darth Vader for being [[AnachronismStew Darth]] [[SpaceOpera Vader]] in a medieval setting. Yet all of these characters also have their fans.

** Patricia Tannis for her holier than thou attitude and general lack of empathy towards anyone in the game.

** Amata has gained quite a bit of hatred from fans for kicking you out of he vault after you let the overseer live TWICE, (unless, of course, you kill him) made her the overseer, and saved the vault from a war that would have destroyed them. Her father is also kind of a {{Jerkass}}

** Canary Mary. '''Canary ''effing'' Mary'''. She and [[ThatOneLevel her levels]] 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, GratutiousEnglish, 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/ValkyriaChronicles'':
** Cezary, a [[FantasticRacism Darcsen-hating]] {{Jerkass}} of a sniper who always seems to look out for himself only, and got quite a few KickTheDog moments in the manga. It doesn't help that he's considered a low-tier sniper, especially compared to people like [[BigBrotherInstinct Oscar]], [[CoolBigSis Catherine]] or [[EnsembleDarkhorse Marina]].
** In terms of people who are actually important to the story, General Gregor of the Imperials and General Damon of the Gallians are also the target of much well-deserved hatred. Most people would probably profess a larger hatred for Damon, though, despite the fact that he's ostensibly on your side - he's incredibly disrespectful of the militia, believing them to be worthless because they're "peasants", and keeps sending them on suicide missions that translate into ridiculously difficult gameplay levels. The fact that, in Selvaria's DLC, [[spoiler:he breaks weapon treaties and uses poison gas on the Imperials]] only serves to solidify how much of a {{jerkass}} he is. [[spoiler:His death at the hands of Selvaria's TakingYouWithMe explosion is supremely satisfying, despite the fact that it horribly sets back Gallia's war effort!]]
** [[{{Ojou}} Edy]] [[{{Tsundere}} Nelson]] is easily the most [[BaseBreaker polarizing]] character in the franchise. Those who like her tend to adore her. Those who don't tend to hate her guts. Both sides are big and very vocal. She's also a massively popular EnsembleDarkHorse in Japan, getting her own DLC episode and ensuring that she'll probably always have at least a cameo, much to dismay of her hatebase.
** The fandom generally doesn't really take kindly to any character with the "Darcsen Hater" Potential, [[{{Jerkass}} and for perfectly]] [[FantasticRacism understandable reason]].

* ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'': The Aki sisters from the tenth game, Mountain of Faith, earned their spot for being uninteresting characters, very weak, and having even less to do with the actual game than with their stage 1 counterparts.

** Kiddy Kong in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 3'' - they could have just used Donkey Kong if they wanted a stronger Kong to counterbalance Dixie Kong. Not to mention that awful crying sound he makes when he loses a life.
