Added DiffLines:

* Stan Smith. He is shown to be the ultimate stereotypical patriot and willing to defend America at all costs yet he acts like an overly strict authoritarian figure towards his family and has sometimes outright abused them. He is also very abusive towards Roger and Klaus and also goes to extreme and unorthodox lengths to get what he wants as in one episode, he offers out 50,000 dollars to anyone who could stop Hayley from marrying Jeff. Stan does a lot of hypocrisy and can be as big of a Jerkass as Roger.

** Angelica is this to many people. She's a highly unique example of this trope, as when the show was still airing on T.V, [[EnsembleDarkhorse Angelica was actually considered one of the]] ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse best]]'' [[EnsembleDarkhorse characters in the series by most fans & critics]]. Not only was she was one of the reasons the show was so popular, she was the show's only character to make it into TV Guide's ''50 Greatest Cartoon Characters'' countdown. However, by the late 2000s, public opinion turned against her for being too mean to the babies and a tad bit of a sociopath. Another interesting fact is that until the first movie came out, Arlene Klasky didn't like her either, as she found Angelica to be too cruel and [[KarmaHoudini not punished for her actions enough]]. Angelica was also not in her and Gabor Csupo's original plans for the series, but was Paul Germain's idea, as he'd based the character off of a girl who'd bullied him in his childhood. A ''Magazine/TheNewYorker'' article was even written about this, focusing on how Angelica tore apart the K-C staff, until ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'' came out, where Klasky recanted her opinions on the character and said she "loved" Angelica.

* Reginald the Koala. He's obnoxious and he's written like a bad MartyStu-eqsue 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 5. It seemed as though the creators themselves caught on to this as Reggie's appearances after the 5th season were severely reduced before eventually being written out altogether in the Season 13 premiere "Father's Daze" where we learn via flashback that he was taxidermied and last seen being sold at a CIA yard sale.

* Brian turned into this for a large portion of the fanbase in later seasons (although he still has his fans), mainly because he would talk about his beliefs... [[AuthorAvatar a lot.]] In the most [[SmallNameBigEgo pretentious way possible.]] It finally reached its zenith in episodes like "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven" where his end-of-episode speeches could now [[PuritySue automatically convert]] [[MarySue anyone who listened to him.]] Season 8 even had a TakeThatScrappy to Brian in the form of a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech speech from Quagmire]] touching on all of the criticisms fans were making about Brian in the later seasons. Apparently even SethMacFarlane realized that people were sick of his AuthorAvatar and wanted him knocked down a few pegs. It still doesn't wipe away the fact that he can be a jerk.

* Lila is widely disliked for two reasons: a reasonable one (she's an "ever-so" irritating [[ParodySue parody]] PuritySue), and a... not-so-reasonable one (DieForOurShip in regards to Arnold/Helga, even though she repeatedly states she doesn't "LIKE like" Arnold and isn't a real threat to the ship, regardless of what [[{{Tsundere}} Helga]] might think). It doesn't help that she has a tendency to lead Arnold into thinking he may have a chance, only to crush his hopes when he asks if there's anything between them, but that was really a problem with the RomanticPlotTumor of later seasons as a whole and not just Lila.

** Carter from the same season, for being a blatant PositiveDiscrimination CanonSue and outshining the turtles. Carter has a ''few'' fans, but most of them agree that he doesn't really belong on a show like TMNT.

** While the ''Fast Forward'' season was maligned for many reasons, a substantial amount of the blame is still heaped upon Cody Jones, the descendent of Casey Jones and April O-Neil. While insofar as that he doesn't sound too bad on paper, in practice he was basically TheLoad added to the existing team dynamic of the turtles and Splinter that had been successful as it was for two decades of stories, with most of the ''Fast Forward'' episodes based around him being a turtles fanboy and his uncle conspiring against him just because of a corporate grudge. Though later in the season he did finally become competent and did win some fans, but other people started having the opposite complaints- Cody became the one who ended up saving the day more often then not (especially in "Day Of Awakening") which got him labelled as a MarySue to some extent.

** It can be argued that Webby is a BaseBreakingCharacter at least, being essentially the female edition of the duck triplets. Probably classes as AnnoyingYoungerSibling, but she did have quite a few SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments to neutralize some of her TastesLikeDiabetes moments. It could have to do with the fact that she's a PuritySue mixed with a DamselScrappy. She often got in trouble or captured, forcing everyone else to drop everything so they could come to her aid. When that wasn't the case, whenever she was directly involved in an episode's story she'd almost ''always'' be the one to save the day, often making the other characters look completely incompetent by comparison (for example, one episode has her pulling a BigDamnHeroes and saving Launchpad from drowning since he doesn't know how to swim... ''EVEN THOUGH SEVERAL EPISODES BEFORE THIS HAVE HAD THE GANG GO UNDERWATER AND HAVE SHOWED HIM SWIMMING JUST FINE'').

** [[MarySue Chloe]] has been gaining detractors ever since her introduction in the season 10 premiere, not helped by many fans officially marking her appearance as the moment where the show became a FranchiseZombie, nor the fact that she has many of the same problems as Sparky, listed above.

* Weasel from ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' had many "talents". These included: this trope, InvincibleHero, and MarySue. When first introduced, he was the "man" who could do no wrong and everyone in the show worshiped him, while his "rival" [[TheWoobie I.R. Baboon]] had no friends of his own and often got the crap-end of the stick by the episode's end. Weasel wasn't well liked by the fans who, in the end, only seemed to watch it for the real star, Baboon. The creators realized this after some number of episodes, and took a different approach instead. Now Weasel and Baboon were partners and, though Weasel was still the multi-talented fellow of the two, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap he now could, and would, receive just as much punishment as his less intelligent counterpart]].

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest''. Even genuine fans of the show tend to hate the main character for being a bratty, unpleasant DesignatedHero with some elements of MartyStu. Who honestly thought making the AnnoyingYoungerSibling the hero was a good idea?

** Megan herself is quite disliked by fans, mostly from post-G1 fans. They consider her unnecessary, that the series should be about ponies and not have humans in it. It doesn't help that the series changed her into a borderline MarySue.
*** Her [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials Rescue from Midnight Castle]] version is quite popular. It was before she got hit with a GirlinessUpgrade.

** While they have a fanbase, Sally and Antoine get occasional flak for their SpotlightStealingSquad status and their roles tracking away from the main character (Sally was a CanonSue that [[PositiveDiscrimination always had moral superiority over Sonic]] and ensured a karmic downfall for him whenever he ignored her, while Antoine was TheLoad with similar obnoxious slapstick as Dulcy).

** Jade Chan often acts before she thinks, is selectively deaf to the word 'no' and variants thereof, directly ''causes'' the problems in more than a few episodes that revolve around her, and she tends to steal the spotlight from the rest of the cast (in other words, she's ten). From the second season onward, ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' pretty much became ''The Jade Show'' making her a BreakoutCharacter to some and a CreatorsPet to others.
*** But she's rarely TheLoad however, since she manages to either fix the problems she causes herself or turn them into advantages. If anything, she's the only GuileHero of the cast. Often she'll solve a problem with intelligence lacking in the other characters, save them when they do equally stupid things like running at the enemy without a plan and is also the only character who seems to bother using the Talismans. More than one episode will usually involve Jackie and the others attacking [[WhatAnIdiot a demon with nothing but their fists]] only for [[BigDamnHeroes Jade to show up with the Talismans in tow]].
