* Bra from ''Webcomic/DragonBallMultiverse'': the daughter of Vegeth (which means the fusion of Goku and Vegeta) and Bulma. Powerful, but with both anger and pride issues. Some fans see her as a Mary Sue. Right now, because of a bet, she is getting her ass kicked for good by King Cold and most of the fandom is cheering. Since she is supposed to be a "hero" in her universe, while King Cold is the usual mass murderer and genocidal tyrant in his universe, this reaction of the fandom tells a lot.

* U16 Son Bra from ''Webcomic/DragonBallMultiverse'': the daughter ''Webcomic/DragonBallMultiverse''. She possesses an incredible amount of Vegeth (which means the fusion power, an immense number of Goku and Vegeta) and Bulma. Powerful, but with both anger and pride issues. Some fans see her techniques, is as a Mary Sue. Right now, because of a bet, she is getting her ass kicked for good by King Cold and most of the fandom is cheering. Since she is supposed to be a "hero" powerful as Perfect Cell in her universe, while base form, and has an [[ArrogantKungFuGuy incredibly smug attitude with it]]. Despite technically being heroic, her hypocrisy and arrogance have caused the readers to root for King Cold Kold instead of her. For reference, King Kold is the usual mass murderer and genocidal tyrant in his universe, this reaction of the fandom tells a lot.referred to by fans as [[FanNickname Space Hitler]].

*** Not really so good, since it implied that Haley had to share half of her wealth with the guild. And eventually the spared Bozzak returned to try to take his revenge on Haley (failing, of course).

** The rogue Fembot, nicknamed "Maverick" as [[{{TakeThat}} an insult to both her and the Sisterhood's lack of respect for ThreeLawsCompliant]]. Mainly due to her violent approach being depicted as right despite the lack of adequete threshold for Zeroth Law behaviour.

* [[FishPeople Des]] from ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' is apparently one of these, [[http://sgrblog.blogspot.com/2009/09/yore-questiens-answerd.html according to John Allison.]] Because of this, his backstory was never properly revealed, and it looks doubtful that it ever will be. John has now stated that [[http://sgrblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/state-of-onion-2010.html Des "is retired from webcomics."]] AndThereWasMuchRejoicing. [[BlatantLies Until he reappeared briefly in October 2015.]]

* Gregory from ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' after he [[spoiler: lost his white magic]] and took a major LevelInJerkAss while setting up his new career as the leader of a metal band. Readers were left with a ManChild, SmugSnake who was never allowed to be wrong and had many KickTheDog moments just to exacerbate things further.

* ''FanFic/CinemaSnobReviewsFrozen'' (a fan comic where ''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob'' reviews ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'') parodies this InUniverse with Snob being really disappointed that Olaf was not this. "We were going to have so much fun hating you!"

* There's no real Scrappy in ''AnsemRetort'' from the reader's viewpoint, but the ''in-universe'' example would be the replacement cast Ansem used when the main cast went missing. Only Red XIII got RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, and that was because Darth Maul turned him to the Dark Side.

* [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Yoshi]] of ''GeneralProtectionFault'', according to the author, annoyed quite a few readers in his inception. It also helps that his somewhat arrogant and obnoxious personality results in him not getting along with much of the rest of the cast.
* ''KeychainOfCreation'' fans once did a survey as to which character they liked the least. [[http://www.patternspider.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=6575 Almost 50% of the votes went to...]] [[ScheduleSlip the placeholder]]. Some of the comments:

* ''PennyArcade'''s Tycho Brahe is starting to become this, thanks to his role in ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory''. However, he's pretty well-liked amongst the female readers.
* ''{{PVP}}'' has two available for your choosing, both of which having been noted by Scott Kurtz as having a strong hatedom: Scratch Fury, destroyer of worlds, and Shecky, Skull's annoying cousin. There are some who would argue that the comic's cast is made up entirely of Scrappies of different kinds forced to work in an office together.
* In ''RedString,'' Kazuo rather quickly morphed into this when he broke up with Miharu rather than stand up for both her and himself - right after finally consummating their relationship and promising to never let her go. Then he blamed ''her'' for his problems literally the next day, breaking his red string in front of her . . . and did we mention she'd just bought him a present? His continued nasty behavior, then absolute rejection of her in favor his JerkAss father (leaving even ''Miharu'' calling him a wussy) hasn't redeemed him either. Since then, every story involving Kazuo has only reinforced his character as a spineless loser, to the point where other characters call him this to his face. A number of people are even raring to call it StrangledByTheRedString if he and Miharu were ever to get back together again. If this guy can ''ever'' be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, it would take an act of God. Though recent events may have transferred him over to Main/{{Woobie}} status when it has be become apparent just how ''much'' of a [[AbusiveParents Jerk Ass Father]] he actually has. [[spoiler: Kazuo's recent suicide attempt has brought out a mixture of reactions in the fandom, though mostly concern and the hope that he will survive.]]

** Seymour gained a considerable hatedom after the September 14th, 2010 block of strips, especially after a DespairEventHorizon. The hatedom seems to have dimminished after he TookALevelInKindness

* ''SomethingPositive'' parodies this character type with a bizarre blue creature named Fluffmodeus. It was first introduced in a set of self-contained strips centered around the author, his girlfriend, and "Rippy the Razor", where it annoyed Rippy to the point of running away in terror (and the author already considered Rippy the most annoying thing ever). The caption of the comic threatened to introduce the character into the strip "if demands are not met". It eventually did get introduced into the main comic, but as the manifestation of Kharisma's mental breakdown (maybe... [[ShrugOfGod even the author isn't sure]]) that was self-aware of how utterly obnoxious it was.
* Zillion from ''StarslipCrisis''. The main point of the character was to serve as a parody''/''TakeThat to ''{{Firefly}}'', in particular the show's use of FutureSlang, the strip's author's main peeve with the show. He accomplished this by having Zillion speak almost entirely in "Deep Slang", a dialect that, amongst other things, replaces words with bizarre synonyms and dropping the ending off sentences. Unfortunately, said slang became increasingly heavy, making Zillion borderline [[TheUnintelligible Unintelligible]]...''even to the other characters in the strip.'' The fact that he had virtually zero personality also contributed to people tiring of him very quickly. Eventually, he suffered an apparent [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] along with another minor character in [[http://www.starslip.com/archive/20070316.shtml this strip]] (in a storyline called "The Fate Of Zillion" no less) only to eventually return and suffer ''yet another'' [[http://www.starslip.com/2008/09/05/tcourse/ apparent (and hilarious) demise]], hinting at future plans of making him TheChewToy (though the strip's revamp seems to have shifted this role to Officer Quine).
