* Reginald the Koala. He's obnoxious and he's written like a bad fan-character. It's hard to find anyone who is actually a fan of the character, yet the writers haven't taken the hint. He also got a ''completely pointless'' StoryArc (in a show that usually goes out of its way to avoid these) where he tried to hook up with an incredibly out-of-character Hayley, which fans thought was a total waste of time. Reginald was okay for his few appearance in that he was just another of the show's random non-sequitur minor characters that pop up each episode. Plus he was a voiced by Donald Fullilove (Goldie Wilson from ''Back to the Future'') who had a cooler, baritone voice that unfortunately was [[TheOtherDarrin replaced by show writer Erik Durbin who had a more high and nasal sounding one]] starting with "Return of the Bling" from Season 6. It seemed as though the creators themselves caught on to this as Reggie's appearances after the 6th season were severely reduced before eventually being written out altogether in the Season 14 premiere "Father's Daze" where we learn via flashback that he was taxidermied and last seen being sold at a CIA yard sale (although the ending narration of the episode "Bahama-Mama" teases a possible return).

* Lydia Fox has been accused of this due to the fact that A) She was originally a fan's OriginalCharacter who was inserted into the show, and B) She mostly appears in episodes where her being in a wheelchair is a relevant plot point [[note]]being in a wheelchair itself isn't the reason but the fact that its brought up a lot means that other character traits [[{{Flanderization}} could be sidelined in favor of her being in a wheelchair]][[/note]].

* The fifth season features a unicorn pony named Starlight Glimmer. She starts a cult of ponies giving up their cutie marks (aka their own identities) and has been doong so for the past few years. When Twilight Sparkle and her friends out her as a hypocrite for still having her own cutie mark, she escapes, only to return in the Season Finale. There, she plunges Equestria in multiple doomed timelines, is responsible for the deaths of several innocent ponies (including CHILDREN) and doesn't show a hint of remorse for it, and when she is finally called out on it, rather than admit she was wrong she deflects the blame to her friend Sunburst. Her motivations for doing this? It turned out that when she was a child, her friend Sunburst moved away after getting his cutie mark.

* Jane and David Read, despite generally being two of the best examples of GoodParents in kids shows, are hated for showing ParentalFavoritism towards D.W. where she really doesn't deserve it, prominent examples include episodes such as "Play it Again, D.W.", "Cast Away", "D.W's Very Bad Mood" and "Arthur's Big Hit". Their favoritism is made even more obvious considering that they barely punish D.W. if at all while catering into her demands, while grounding Arthur left and right for pitiful reasons and for unfairly long amounts of time.



* Cousin Cora from the episode, "D.W. Thinks Big", for being mean to D.W., getting D.W. in trouble for something [[NeverMyFault she]] did, taking D.W.'s room for her own, and being generally conceited. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who actually likes her. [[HateSink She may have been intentionally written this way to make D.W. look good]].

* The 1985 syndicated revival of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' introduced spring-legged alien Orbitty in the first episode. The episodes where he plays an important role in the plot can be counted on one hand, and he is largely a background annoyance for the rest of the season. Even the animators thought Orbitty was a pointless addition; John Kricfalusi, who worked as a layout supervisor on several episodes, has gone on record as having tried to work in scenes where Orbitty was on the receiving end of slapstick abuse (such as being smacked around by an automatic golf putter) to vent his frustration. Hanna-Barbera tacitly acknowledged their mistake by unceremoniously dropping the character for the 1987 episodes and the later ''Jetsons'' movies.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', Brainy Smurf was someone who nobody liked in-universe or out. On the surface, he's a KnowNothingKnowItAll who's more of a narcissist than Vanity Smurf (a guy who's ''name'' denotes narcissism) and more annoying than, well, anyone else on the show, mostly because of his whiny, nasally voice as he lectures anyone unlucky enough to listen. He never plays a vital part of the story (unless he's the ''antagonist'' of the story, which happened ''a lot''). Worst of all, this guy tends tdo terrible things all the time, like bake living gingerbread Smurfs that almost destroy the village, blame Clumsy for losing Baby Smurf (after ''he'' was responsible) and put him through a KangarooCourt, and even seize control of the village, crown himself king, rule like a tyrant, and start a Smurf civil war. [[AdaptationalVillainy (Although in fairness, it wasn't him in the original version.)]]
