* ''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/DestroyAllHumans!]] 2'' features Shama Llama, a hippie guru Crypto recruits to be the manager of the Arkvoodle Cult when it is reaching it's perk in Bay City. Shama starts off normal in the game, but his true colors eventually show as [[TheFace he ends up turning the cult's imagine into him]] (if the fact that the Arkvoodle Cult is essentially a Christianity parody, and Shama Llama LooksLikeJesus isn't obvious enough), [[{{Jerkass}} treating Crypto as if he was a mere slave]]. By the time Crypto has gotten enough converts in Takoshima, he gives up on Shama and leaves him to run the cult... [[spoiler:until he decides to bite Shama back and assassinate him on the order of the Black Ninjas, efficiently ending the cult.]]

* ''HarvestMoon'': Sabrina, Mary and Luna from the series are Scrappies due to rabid DieForOurShip Vaughn/Chelsea, Gray/Claire and Gill/Angela fans. Also, any rival of a popular bishie in that series will become an instant scrappy due to fangirls.
** Sandra from ''A New Beginning'' is not popular with fans. Her store hours are crazy, and she demands a ridiculous amount of specific, high-quality items that aren't that special. Actually going out of your way to get the items yourself is usually easier than waiting for her store hours and paying him.

** 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.

** 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.
