* [[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).

* ''{{Achewood}}'' fans have found their Scrappy in Showbiz, Roast Beef's scuzzy, trailer-trash twin brother. Before, he was simply a thickheaded, vulgar {{Jerkass}} in way too much debt, but he then degraded into a man who was not above plotting to force his brother into sex with a stripper, only to ''photograph the affair'' and then show the resulting photos to Molly ''at their wedding ceremony''. Thankfully, his plans were derailed when Beef lured him into a trap that would have him serve jail time for the duration of the wedding, and he hasn't been seen since.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has a couple splits in the fandom, mostly along what kind of groups of the GeodesicCast they like. For instance, the Exiles, a group of [[EnsembleDarkhorse fairly popular]] people among older fans, are disliked by the newer fans. The Trolls are the biggest example of this, as they were introduced around a third of the way through the story, but since their introduction the fandom has quadrupled. Another group that occasionally falls into this is The Felt and The Midnight Crew, as some people are annoyed that they are [[EnsembleDarkhorse Ensemble Darkhorses]], despite having pretty much no characterization. [[BrokenBase Pretty much every character has their detractors and their supporters, who are usually equally rabid.]]
