** Mayu Amakura is hated for mainly being TheLoad. She cannot do anything during the game, partly because a knee injury hinders her physically and because she cannot resist the spirits' influence mentally. She causes the game to become nothing but an EscortMission whenever she is with Mio, but otherwise prolongs the game by constantly running off and getting in trouble, because she is being possessed by the game's BigBad. [[spoiler:The other reason for hating her stems from the fact that she is a ManipulativeBitch, who purposefully fell and injured her knee to guilt her twin sister enough to never leave her side.]]
** Rui Kagamiya also suffers from TheLoad problem. Players hate her because she is repeatedly used by the spirits at Mt Hikami and similar to get her [[DamselInDistress in trouble and have Ren save her]]. Outside of that, her lack of any deep personality beyond being Ren's [[CannotSpitItOut (Secret)]] SatelliteLoveInterest makes the first part worse.

** Of course, given his [[UnexpectedCharacter rather surprising]] appearance in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game as a fighter, the dog can now be [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential subjected to all sorts of punishment]]. He also takes every opportunity to perform his trademark laugh[[note]]His Intro, one of his taunts, his Final Smash, and one of his victory animations[[/note]], in an apparent attempt to ''preserve'' his status as a Scrappy.

** While the series is full of polarising characters, none attract such utter loathing as Laura from the second game. In every one of her scenes with James she regularly insults him, goes out of her way to be unhelpful, and at one point locks him in a room filled with [[FreudWasRight incredibly suggestive]] monsters. While entirely justified, her final scene where she rages at James at the ''worst'' possible time is the metaphorical final straw for many.

* The Yeti/"Abominable Snow Monster" in the 8-Bit Windows game ''VideoGame/SkiFree'' is also hated due to [[GameOverMan appearing out of nowhere and eating the player who was just minding their own business skiing down the hill]], and tops it off by [[{{Troll}} jumping up and down victoriously over eating the player, mocking their inability to escape him or kick his ass]]. He's getting like that DuckHunt dog, only with less publicity, and everyone who played VideoGame/SkiFree hates this guy.

* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' is well known for having surprisingly complex and/or fun boss fights. That said, there are some bad bosses, though most end up simply forgotten. This is not the case for Pyribbit from ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'', who has gone beyond GoddamnedBoss territory to being downright despised in general. While his annoying boss fight where he spends most of the time invincible during long attacks is one thing, the problem is that ''Triple Deluxe'' tried expanding on the intense boss fights of ''Return to Dream Land'', and while most bosses were indeed better, Pyribbit turned out to be bland and incredibly boring. Many players consider him the worst part of the game, and were not happy to see him again in ''Team Kirby Clash'', a sub-game in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''.

** In a similar vein to Xiba, Natsu from ''V''. Being a blonde European stranded and raised in Japan, she comes across as a ditzy, peppy, glittery barbie-girl ReplacementScrappy for the extremely {{Badass}} fan-favourite IceQueen Taki, who has been inexplicably been PutOnABus. She's also appearing in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2'', once again earning ire for those who wanted Taki in instead. However, things might look good for the future since that game may be her chance to develop herself further (when ''V'' really minimized her room for development into little to none), and seeing that a lot hated Patroklos even more, Natsu would look like a better choice to represent the game's newest cast.

* Angie is the pariah of the ''VideoGame/TraumaCenter'' community because of her self-righteous attitude, constant criticizing of Derek ([[JerkassHasAPoint though he does admittedly deserve it sometimes]]) [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the fact that she almost never calls Derek by his first name]] despite being his partner and supposed love interest.

** 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!]]
*** [[spoiler: 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.]]

** ''Alpha 3's'' Ingrid gets a ''ton'' of hatred for having a ludicrously generic, crapanese girly-girl design that has no place in a fighting game. The fact that she claims Bison "stole" ''her'' psycho powers takes the cake. And being the cause of Pandora in the aforementioned SF x T really made fans' blood pressure reached critical.
