* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: **Timothy O'Neill tends to enter into this territory more than a few times. He's generally a nice guy and his motives are never portrayed as anything less than well-meaning. And he's clearly not an antagonist to Daria like Ms. Li is. However, he does cross the line a lot with Daria whenever he singles her out to try to make her take part in activities she clearly doesn't want to be in and at one point, even submits one of her essays to a contest ''without asking for her consent''. As a side effect, this tends to make Mr. O'Neill come off as more of an inconsiderate asshole with no regard for Daria's feelings or consent on any matter than the writers probably intended him to be. As such, it also makes it harder for one to sympathize with Mr. O'Neill once he gets humiliated and bad things start happening to him.

** Daria's aunt Amy could also qualify. While clearly being set up as a sort of adult version of Daria she is shockingly self-centered and inconsiderate when dealing with others. For instance showing up to a wedding after saying you weren't coming would cause some rather difficult logistical issues. She also shows almost no knowledge of her sisters' lives such as the name of Rita's boyfriend or that a previous one had actually died and not knowing her nieces' age. She is also willing to passively aggressively insult both Jake and Helen in front of their children. So while Daria clearly considers her to be cool there is little to set her apart from the shallow and egocentric adults on the show besides having a similar sense of humor to Daria.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Generally, there are a lot of characters who deserve Daria's snark. However, during "Life in the Past Lane," Daria really goes overboard on harping on Jane's new date, Nathan, a retro guy who's really into the 1940s. Even though Nathan is only showing an interest in the culture, music, and style of the 40s, Daria decided to rain on his parade repeatedly by telling him just how racist and conformist the 40s were. And even after Nathan acknowledges Daria's criticisms and admits that his favorite era had its flaws and social inequalities, what does Daria do? ''She continues to snark at him and annoy him'' to the point where Nathan, quite justifiably, decides that he would really rather have as little to do with Daria as possible. Granted Nathan was eventually revealed to be a bit of an obsessive jerk towards the end of the episode but Daria's JerkAss behavior towards him before then was still completely uncalled for.

** Ms. Angela Li probably crossed this when forced Daria to sell chocolate to a woman who had blood sugar issues, implying that she was more interested in making money than someone's physical well-being.
