* D.W. Read is easily the most hated character in the show as she clearly exists just to make life hard for her brother. Aside from mostly being characterized as a spoiled brat and an annoying idiot, [[KarmaHoudini she gets little to no punishment for her actions]], similar in the vein of Lisa Simpson in the later seasons, though for different reasons. On top of behaving like a bratty child even considering her age, she usually acts as though she is superior to others.
* Jane and David are hated for showing ParentalFavoritism towards D.W. where she really doesn't deserve it, prominent examples including episodes such as "Play it Again, D.W." 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.

* Muffy and her father Ed Crosswire tend to receive a lot of hate as well.

to:

* In the "Pal and Kate Speak" episodes, Francine's pet cat, Nemo, is hated for reasons similar to Pal and Kate's listed above, as well as playing the CatsAreMean stereotype a little too straight.
* Muffy and her father Ed Crosswire tend to receive a lot of hate as well.well, mostly for their rich and snobbish attitudes.

Their ParentalFavoritism 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.
* Kate and Pal also qualify, mostly due to them starring in episodes that feature them ''talking'' to one another a la ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''. Note that they do '''not''' do this in other episodes of the series and pratically never interact (IE: speak) to any of the older characters in the series. Many fans find these episodes a far-too-jarring shift from the usual formula of the series and wish that Kate and Pal never spoke in the first place.
* Muffy and her father Ed Crosswire tend to receive a lot of hate as well.
* Ladonna Compson and her little brother, Bud, are seen as two annoying and unneeded characters by many fans of the series. The fact that they were introduced in the series' [[SeasonalRot sixteenth season]], when the animation changed from the traditional hand-drawn style to a slower and choppier flash style certainly does not help their case.
* The Tibble Twins are not very well liked, due to the fact that they are both very bratty and dimwitted, and very rarely get punished for their actions. While they may have a FreudianExcuse (their parents aren't around, so they are taken care of by their grandmother, who seems to spoil them), that doesn't excuse the fact that they misbehave so much, they make D.W. look like a saint in comparison. Also, they've become [[CreatorsPet incredibly overexposed]] over the years.




* This happens ''a lot'' in ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', from younger siblings to older ones:
** D.W. Read is disliked by the fandom because [[KarmaHoudini she gets little to no punishment for her actions]], similar in the vein of Lisa Simpson in the later seasons, though for different reasons. She also behaves like a bratty child even considering her age, and she usually acts as though she is superior to others.

** Jane and David are hated every time they show ParentalFavoritism towards D.W. in episodes where she really doesn't deserve it, prominent examples including "Play it Again, D.W." and "Arthur's Big Hit".

* Another Scrappy who's even ''related'' to Brian is his cousin, Jasper. Calling him CampGay is too liberal; instead suffice it to say that he's a rude conglomeration of almost every offensive gay stereotype ever conceived. He became even worse when the writers decided to make him a key player in an episode advocating gay rights, [[BrokenAesop in one of the most counter-effective attempts at activism ever on the show]]. This same problem occurred with Quagmire's transexual father way later on. Despite many people considering Jasper to be the homosexual equivalent of the EthnicScrappy (especially other gays), SethMacFarlane stated in an interview that Jasper was supposed to ''appeal to the gay audience''. To say that backfired is a understatement.
** Convincing Brian to hurt Stewie's feelings and sabotage his play certainly hasn't made him any more endearing.

** Dulcy was ExecutiveMeddling attempting to push another female lead into the show, resulting in a [[TheKlutz klutzy]], [[MotorMouth loud mouthed]] [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere dragon]] [[RememberTheNewGuy appearing out of no where]] in the second season.

** Colonel Spigot can count for this too DependingOnTheWriter, which essentially makes him a BaseBreaker at best. It doesn't help he is the most prominant antagonist after Don Karnage.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'': As a result of taking [[TookALevelInJerkass tremendous levels of jerkishness]], All 5 of the Titans in this cartoon became widely hated by the fans outside of their demographic to the point that they would rather root for the villains than them and have a place in the [[http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Teen_Titans_(Teen_Titans_Go!) ''Villains Wiki'']] because of it.
** [[http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Robin_(Teen_Titans_Go!) Robin]] going from being an actual strong leader with a sense of morality who genuinely cares about his comrades into a whiny, arrogant, [[ItsAllAboutMe egotist]] who never stops obsessing how he's the "Lone Wolf Leader", and actually values getting glory over doing heroic deeds.
** [[http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Cyborg_(Teen_Titans_Go!) Cyborg]] was the resident smart guy of the group and was its physically strongest member. Like Robin, the show tones down his competent traits considerably to make him as dumb as Beast Boy. And whenever the two of them get together, they act like immature party guys with no regard for anyone but themselves.
** [[http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Beast_Boy_(Teen_Titans_Go!) Beast Boy]] in the original series was already pretty silly, but he could get serious when it was needed, cared about his friends, was quite clever, and was a pretty cool guy to be around. In the show in contrast, he's a lazy, selfish, and obnoxious jerk who cares for no one and is a complete dumbass. "Ghost Boy" and "Staring At The Future" are the episodes where he is at his worst the former taking advantage of the Titans and casually killing them off while the latter has him and Cyborg ruin the lives of the other three Titans.
** This version of Aqualad isn't very popular, due to his ChickMagnet persona being escalated to TheCasanova and he acts like he owns every girl. Not to mention him hitting on Raven clashing with the show's colossal [=BBRae=] fandom.

* Ezekiel was a BaseBreaker when he was a human, but after his [[FromNobodyToNightmare feral transformation]] in ''World Tour'' he is now almost universally hated.

to:

* Ezekiel was a BaseBreaker when he was a human, but after his [[FromNobodyToNightmare feral transformation]] in ''World Tour'' he is now almost universally hated.hated, due to having no character beyond "acts wild".



* Sugar from ''Pahkitew Island''. In addition to being an obvious teenaged {{Expy}} of [[Series/HereComesHoneyBooBoo Honey Boo Boo & Mama June]], she's also a DistaffCounterpart to Owen, who [[BaseBreaker already wasn't the most popular character to the]] PeripheryDemographic, except without his redeeming NiceGuy qualities and as a full-blown {{Jerkass}}. She's also responsible for a lot of the infamous moments in that season, including her petty hatred of Ella which ultimately culminated into [[spoiler: selling her out to Chris for singing]], making it all the way to [[spoiler: 3rd place]] through a very poorly-written [[AssPull contrivance]] that resulted in her [[spoiler: getting Jasmine eliminated]], and finally being so much of a KarmaHoudini that she gives Duncan a run for his money as she is eliminated due to her own stupidity and lack of talent while also suffering no punishment for any of her actions. It's pretty bad when many fans are hoping that a [[spoiler: semi-finalist]] is retired after only one season.
* [[AlphaBitch Amy]], mainly for her needlessly cruel treatment towards [[EnsembleDarkHorse Samey]]. She's even considered meaner than [[BigBad Heather]]. And Heather at least played the game well, while Amy never does anything to contribute to the plot besides bully Samey, [[SatelliteCharacter which seems to be her only purpose]]. It also doesn't help that she manages to convince most of her team that she's better than Samey by taking credit for everything she ever did.

** And lastly, there's Ronaldo. Unlike Lars and Onion, who sometimes show redeeming qualities (for example, Onion gave Steven a "Ranger Gal" figure as an apology token) it seems like there's nothing positive to say about Ronaldo.

While most of his antics are played for laughs, most people find irritating rather than funny. The Phantom Strider calls Ronaldo in his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb37Zx7onDw&feature=youtu.be To 10 Worst Episodes of Otherwise Good Cartoons]] a "train-wreck of a character" and "an ugly wart in the face of otherwise immaculate, gorgeous cartoon".
