[[folder:''Bleach'']]
* First and foremost, it should be noted that due TiteKubo's storytelling style - namely his constant usage of {{Ass Pull}}s (referred to as Plotkai within ''Bleach'''s context) and habit of creating new characters at random to move the plot along ([[ChandlersLaw Raymond Chandler]] would be proud) - virtually every character in ''Bleach'' can, and likely ''has'' (at least once), drift into this trope in as little time as one chapter, and then be [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescued from it]] in the same span. The following are just a few noteworthy examples.
* Orihime Inoue became disliked by some people after the series entered the Arrancar Arc. This has to do with several factors.
## Her character turning from GenkiGirl into a depressed mope [[spoiler:though for a good reason]].
## Her being the necessitation of another RescueArc, a long, ''[[ArcFatigue long]]'' rescue arc.
## Her confessing her feelings for Ichigo, invoking ire from hardcore Ichigo x Rukia shippers and Rukia fans who accuse Orihime of [[SpotlightStealingSquad stealing her spotlight as the series' main heroine]].
## Not having any offensive powers after Tsubaki ate it when Orihime tried protecting her friends. He gets repaired, but so far has not been used in battle since then. Not helped at all by the fact that Tsubaki's power is directly proportional to Orihime's killing intent, which is non-existent thanks to her ActualPacifism.
## The hate intensifies with every utterance of [[SayMyName "Kurosaki-kun"]] after a chapter had her repeat it a dozen or so times.
* Before Orihime, there was Momo Hinamori, Aizen's [[NiceGirl sweet and cheerful]] but naive and obsessive [[TheWoobie Woobie]] of a lieutenant. She was [[MoreThanMindControl brainwashed]] into unquestioned obedience by Aizen for decades, leading her to attack her best friend/adoptive brother Toshiro Hitsugaya[[note]]She scored a lot of hate there too, Hitsugaya is so popular that he got his own movie.[[/note]] because of some very shaky information in a letter Aizen wrote her before his apparent death. It became even worse when [[spoiler:after she came back after being stabbed to almost certain death as part of Aizen's plan, Momo was in such heavy denial and so damaged that she still thought he was partially innocent (and that Gin Ichimaru was the one actually responsible), begging for Aizen to be saved]]. This earned her even more hatred from fans.
* Some people hate Soi Fon, a.k.a. "Captain Bitchninja" because of her extremely harsh attitude toward everyone except Yoruichi.
* [[DiscOneFinalBoss Sosuke Aizen]] drifted into this trope after a while. While initially very popular for his series-changing role in the conspiracy and his suave villainy, he wore thin for a lot of fans as the Arrancar arc went on. He started getting flak in Hueco Mundo (and most of Fake Karakura) for [[OrcusOnHisThrone sitting on his ass while his army did his dirty work]]. Once he started fighting, and began explicitly doing things said to be impossible (like surviving overcoming Hirako's ability to reverse senses), the fans immediately began lamenting him to be ''[[InvincibleVillain too powerful]]'' for the rest of the cast to handle without help from an AssPull. He receives virtually no backstory, his powers are vastly {{Story Break|erPower}}ing, and many of his tactical decisions and plans turned out to be very stupid. Aside from the good looks and god complex, he just wasn't much of a character.
* Kaname Tousen during his time as a Gotei 13 captain and Aizen's right-hand man, he's easily disliked by nearly everyone of the fanbase due to being blind, and joining the bad guys for a stupid and hypocritical reason ([[spoiler:although it turns out that he isn't as noble as he claims, and only wants revenge]]). Not to mention when he gained his sight back, he calls Komamura (remember, Tousen was the first person not to treat Komamura as an outcast) [[KickTheDog ugly]].[[note]]This is in contrast to Rangiku and Hisagi, who briefly comment on how they like him better without the mask, since he is no longer hiding anything.[[/note]]
* Kon: gets this for being a flat character and his complaining.
* Anime-only characters especially get flak from fans:
** The Modsouls were reviled during their debut, but it softened a bit afterward. By the end of the Bount arc, once they were reduced to comic relief, they quickly got hated again.
** Hardly ''anyone'' likes the Bounts, the filler shinigami, and the filler arrancars.
** Lurichiyo Kasumioji is notorious amongst the fandom for her SpoiledBrat demeanor as a princess.
** Shu Kannogi's got a particularly grating voice in ''both'' English and Japanese, and he's such a wimp that it's hard to take him seriously.
* Nozomi Kujo, being a CreatorsPet and a FlatCharacter who is an example of multiple different Sue tropes.
* Kenpachi Zaraki became cemented as one following an [[ExpandedUniverse ambiguously-canon novel by someone other than Kubo]] portraying him as a GodModeSue, to the point where, when he got beaten to a pulp by the new BigBad[[spoiler:'s [[ActuallyADoombot Doombot]]]] in the actual manga, the fans were ''happy'' (not because they disliked him ''per se'', but because that proves Kubo himself does not believe Zaraki is as powerful as he was portrayed in the novel).
** His [[spoiler:killing of Unohana due to Kyoraku's orders for her to [[TrainingFromHell train him]] in a DuelToTheDeath]] hasn't done the man any wonders either. It struck many as not only terrible character shilling on Kenpachi's part, but [[spoiler:a waste of Unohana's merits after ''finally'' averting the "informed" part of her InformedAbility]] and [[WhatAnIdiot/{{Bleach}} a monumentally idiotic moment]] in light of [[spoiler:Wandenreich recently turning the Soul Society into a slaughterhouse.]]
* The Xcution as a whole are {{smug|Snake}} {{replacement|Scrappy}}s to the Arrancar. Unlike the arrancar which had their own fleshed out backstories and interesting powers, the former on the other hand seems to be introduced solely to provide a means to restore Ichigo's powers and an enemy group, despite being very low on the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil to fight to fill in the time before the Wandenreich arc.
** They are called out to be {{recycled|Script}} {{replacement|Scrappy}}s for the Vizards, lacking the sympathetic motives and being complete jerks to everyone after TheReveal.
* Komamura's great-grandfather is already gaining dislike for [[spoiler:apparently saying he's proud of Komamura for falling to his clan's roots of revenge and becoming a mindless beast driven by it. He's even gloating about the fact that Sajin's life is in ruins and his days as a Shinigami are most likely over.]]
* Even the Wandenreich, namely the [[SuperpowerLottery utterly random Sternritters]], are not immune to this trope. Primarily, it's Gremmy Thoumeaux, who has a highly overblown [[ThePowerOfCreation Power of Creation]] ([[HeartIsAnAwesomePower though he seemed to use it to kill Rose and Kensei by simply imagining both of them dead]]), [[SmugSnake a cocky attitude despite not being that threatening]], [[AntiClimaxBoss an incredibly underwhelming fight against Zaraki that had the latter countering everything the former did]], [[BadassDecay losing all competence upon fighting Zaraki]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim and a very sudden death]] [[SelfDisposingVillain that was caused by his own hand]] and served to continue overhyping Zaraki, who has become this trope for reasons mentioned above.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Code Geass'']]
* Suzaku first and foremost, on both sides of the Pacific no less. Being TheQuisling was bad enough, but his blatant {{Hypocri|te}}sy on virtually every subject combined with a smug HolierThanThou attitude (namely toward Lelouch) and being perceived by his detractors as something of a CreatorsPet have made him less endearing.
* Nina. Her racism ([[AllThereInTheManual caused by bad experiences in a Japanese ghetto]]), her [[PsychoLesbian affection for Euphemia]], and [[MadScientist her role in creating the Geass-world equivalent of a nuclear bomb]] [[spoiler:resulting in the death of millions]] earned her the hatred of the fanbase. The [[FanDisservice Table-kun]] [[ADateWithRosiePalms incident]] didn't help. Though unlike other cases, she actually [[CharacterDevelopment learned her lesson and wised up]]... but tell that to the fanbase, which REFUSES to see her change.
* Rolo and Shirley have also been hated on and considered as Scrappies, though it seems to be mostly by fans of one that hate the other. Rolo's hated for [[spoiler:killing Shirley]] and considered a DepravedHomosexual (with all the homophobia it brings), Shirley is hated and blamed for various problems in the series (whether she ''did'' cause them or not is something else) and her detractors feel she deserved that fate.
* Typically, by the end of the series, all the fan hatred has, in an interesting meta-contrast to the ending, been shifted towards Kaname Ohgi. Initially he was able to compensate his status as TheGenericGuy in an otherwise vividly colorful cast by virtue of being the Black Knights' VoiceOfReason to the point of becoming a minor EnsembleDarkhorse. His increasingly rash decisions and degeneration into hypocrisy towards the end of R2 (including backstabbing Lelouch based on VillainsNeverLie and functionally surrendering the ''entire world'' to Britannia in an under-the-table deal to free Japan) quickly plummeted him to Scrappy status. Not only he does ''not'' suffer in any way, shape, or form for his mistakes and ends up both a {{Karma|Houdini}} AND an IdiotHoudini, but at the end of the series, he gets one of the happiest endings out of all of the cast by being HappilyMarried and he even became ''Prime Minister of Japan'' while two of the main characters get the less ideal endings, which made him even more hated by several fans of the show. This was amplified by the knowledge that [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom Ohgi's betrayal basically led to the final arc and the characters' bad ends]], which have been a matter of controversy among various fans, [[DespairEventHorizon but]] [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans for]] [[InferredHolocaust different]] [[SenselessSacrifice reasons]].
* Ougi's newlywed wife, Villetta, also shares in the hate for [[LoveMakesYouDumb arguably leading him astray in the first place]] and screwing Lelouch over in the most inopportune moments, culminating in her being trusted over Lelouch leading to the betrayal when she has no right to be, as an agent against him on behalf of Britannia (re:the geass and him being AWOL following the Black Rebellion, even though she was the one watching over Lelouch for geass, meaning she may have very well misled them, and keeping him under surveillance during that year, making her partly responsible for the latter, and also that she was the one who incapacitated Ohgi in the first place partly due to the latter's carelessness, and Ohgi [[NeverMyFault still completely blames Lelouch for being treated as an expendable and abandoning him during that moment]]). And yet, she too shares in Ohgi's happy ending for her convenient [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor team switch]], even though she undergoes no redemptive character development nor actually does anything for the peace. Meanwhile, each of the main leads had already [[spoiler:lost a love interest they both cared about, one of which started falling deeper into despair after being used by Villetta]]. It's not too strange to find fans who wished they didn't survive the waterfall incident.
* Tianzi of the Chinese Federation because of her complaining.
* Gino Weinberg, and arguably the entire Knights of the Round, as they really don't get much screentime (except for Anya), and when they do get screentime, they don't really contribute anything (though Luciano is a peculiar one in that the little screentime he has manages to be the biggest asshole in the entire series.) Gino's entire character is essentially "Hit on Girls and act buddy-buddy with Suzaku", and he doesn't do much else than that the entire series, all 20 or so times he shows up and wastes precious time just being there. Worse, any attempts on the show's part to further define him begin and end with him [[ShelteredAristocrat failing to understand the desires and struggles of everyone else]], from Kallen's Japanese pride to his effective complicitness with Britannian policy (he doesn't see anything wrong with a purge during the second SAZ, for instance). The other Knights of the Round, (barring Anya & Luciano) may be considered examples of TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter given their potential as a QuirkyMinibossSquad of EliteMooks and what little characterisation some of them got. You'd expect them to become compelling players. Alas, the series may as well have not had most of them at all for the little good they did (especially the two, Monica and Dorothea, who were reduced to MauveShirt status). This may be a partial result of the ExecutiveMeddling which afflicted Season 2, but it doesn't change what we got on-screen.

[[folder:''Gundam'']]
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'':
** Katz Kobayashi is hated for being gullible and stubborn as well as obsessed with enemy pilot Sarah Zaviaroff. It is no surprise that the fandom squealed with joy when he [[spoiler:died by his own stupidity when he crashed into an asteroid, then get blasted by Yazan]].
** Reccoa Londe, for betraying the AEUG for "using her" despite the fact that they never thought of her as anything less then a great friend and ally, and that she defected over to Scirocco, a womanizer of the highest order. And also, she indirectly caused the death of fan-favorite Emma. Many fans snidely remark that if Char had just slept with her once, all this could have been avoided.
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack CharsCounterattack]]''
** Both Quess Paraya and Hathaway Noa could also be considered Scrappies. Hathaway was partially RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap because of how things go wrong in the sequel novel ''Hathaway's Flash''.
** Chan Agi from the same film also takes some heat, mostly due to the fact that fans felt her role should have been filled by the conspicuously absent Sayla Mass.
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'':
** [[RebelliousPrincess Relena]], who is often seen as a TooDumbToLive StalkerWithACrush [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses Pink Menace]] regardless of her significant CharacterDevelopment and BadassPacifist moments--and this is before you get into the [[YaoiFangirl Yaoi Fangirls]] screaming "DieForOurShip!" in some cases, quite literally. [[AmericansHateTingle At least in America]]. In Japan, Relena often appears in ''Gundam Ace'''s "Top 30 Females" list, and, as of 2010, is the only female ''Gundam Wing'' character to appear on said list.
** Wufei, an ArrogantKungFuGuy who is {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed in fanfiction as a [[HeManWomanHater misogynist bastard]] who only knows four words: "Justice", "Evil", "Nataku", and "[[HeyYou ONNA!]]". The fact that he is a blatant {{Hypocrite}} by [[NeverLiveItDown spouting off about honour and then killing soldiers in their sleep]] hardly helps his case, either.
** In an interview with the creators, Quatre was referred to as the "Space Heart Jerk" by the Japanese fans of the show, though [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff he is popular overseas]].
** ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'': Try to find a fan of Olba, the younger of the Frost brothers. "Whiny, flamboyant male {{Yandere}} with a brother complex" doesn't even cover it, although he only has [[NeverLiveItDown one instance]] of freaking out over his brother getting hit. [[spoiler:His brother is also the only other Category F Newtype, which are useless in the eyes of basically everyone]]. Still, even his own [[Creator/NozomuSasaki voice actor]] hated him. Even gave him a word aversion to "Nii-san".
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' and its sequel ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'':
** Flay Allster because [[spoiler:she used sex to lure Kira Yamato to his death, as punishment for failing to save her father from an horrible death in space...]], Yuna Roma Seiran for being the RomanticFalseLead, Shinn Asuka for being the ReplacementScrappy, Meyrin Hawke for [[DieForOurShip standing in between Athrun and Cagalli]], and, to a lesser degree, Lunamaria Hawke for being a FauxActionGirl, Lacus Clyne for being PuritySue (but like Momo from ''Bleach'', [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japan loves her]] [[AmericansHateTingle for that exact reason]]), and Kira Yamato for being the ultimate one-man SpotlightStealingSquad in ''Destiny'' (but see Lacus's note). Basically, these two series are a perfect example of how completely different characters can be the Scrappy in the eyes of different segments of the fandom.
** The trio of DOM Trooper pilots, who do nothing other than act as attack dogs while berating people who dare disagree with Lacus-sama; even those on Kira's side of the fan-war find them irritating and one-dimensional.
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]''
** [[spoiler:Lyle Dylandy]], apart from bordering on an InUniverse example of ReplacementScrappy, can't catch a break from fans. He's either not enough like his brother or too much like his brother, then he gets together with Anew Returner during a four-month timeskip (which was not the ''best'' writing decision). Then [[spoiler:when she turned out to be a ManchurianAgent and Setsuna had to kill her, Lyle was very upset [[SarcasmMode for some reason]] and beat him up]].
** Andrei Smirnov wasn't popular due to hating his [[ColonelBadass father]], [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sergei]], for some reasons that were rather tenuous and could have been solved if they'd sat down and talked things out, as well as [[DieForOurShip having feelings for Louise]]. [[spoiler:When he ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVFgWqFWLBU kills]]'' Sergei, calling him a traitor when Sergei was actually acting as a negotiator for A-LAWS and trying to ''save lives'' after a not-ColonyDrop, nobody could forgive him. He even had the gall to say that it was a "difficult choice" when he was basically taking a very flimsy pretext to commit paricide]].
*** The CutePsycho Nena Trinity gained instant Scrappy status right around episode 18 after she [[spoiler:opened fire at the wedding ceremony of Louise's parents and killed lots of innocent people ''[[{{Tykebomb}} because she could]]'']]. Fan hatred softened a bit when [[spoiler:she watched her beloved brothers [[TheStoic Johan]] and [[AxCrazy Michael]] die at the hands of [[PsychoForHire Ali Al-Saachez]], since it's partially because of them doting on her endlessly that she gets to do what she wants]]. She [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap does get somewhat better]] in S2.
** Wang Liu Mei for being too secretive, a SmugSnake in training, and her plan to "destroy the world she hates, through change" without ever saying ''why'' she hates the way it is now so vehemently. Her mistreatment of her [[UndyingLoyalty insanely loyal]] brother and [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered attitude]] cements it.
** Saji Crossroad heads on his way back to scrappydom in season 2 for being selfish and practically ignorant of Celestial Being's efforts to pay for their sins, even after Tieria already told him that the world conflict cannot be resolved with simple pacifism, and to see the world through his own eyes. For the kid, though, [[CharacterDevelopment he's gotten better]].
** But the same cannot be said for Louise who went from being pitiful into despicable for some people when [[spoiler:she joins A-LAWS to get revenge on Celestial Being and deeming the latter an UltimateEvil despite A-LAWS' atrocities. Even though she was heavily damaged mentally and physically, some couldn't excuse her attitude or trying to kill Saji]] [[spoiler:And even when Louise kills fellow Scrappy, Nena, it didn't help. For some, it even made it worse, considering that it didn't solve anything and that, while not forgiving her of her actions, they felt that the handling of Nena was completely botched.]]
** There were already complaints about [[spoiler:Billy Katagiri]]'s [[DemotedToExtra reduced role]], but after he [[spoiler:apparently tried to shoot his ex-girlfriend Sumeragi Lee Noriega]] in episode 23, the fandom was ''screaming'' for his blood. The revelation that joining [[spoiler:Ribbons was solely due to the fact that [[CannotSpitItOut he can't say I love you]] didn't help]].
** RebelliousPrincess Marina is hated due to the fact that she seems to have no use other than hanging out with the orphaned Azhadistan children. It was an attempt to show how the war effects people who have nothing to do with it, but way too much time was spent on it, and Marina comes off as basically an {{Expy}} of Relena, without Relena's CharacterDevelopment or BadassPacifist tendencies. Her season one portrayal doesn't help this image, in which she spent the entire season effectively doing nothing but going on a pointless trip to the UN (in which she ended up a pawn of season one BigBad Alejandro Corner) and being [[GeneralFailure completely indecisive]] when Azadistan ended up collapsing into civil war[[note]]Many saw the latter as a repeat of Cagalli's CharacterDerailment in ''Destiny''[[/note]].
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Gundam AGE]]''
** Flit Asuno during the second season on was hated by a fair amount of fans over his near single-minded obsession toward wiping out the Vagan. Some had even compared him to [[OmnicidalManiac Gihren Zabi, Patrick Zala and the Blue Cosmos people]], despite the fact Flit had otherwise [[FreudianExcuse legitimate reasons]] to want Vagan destroyed[[note]]albeit not to the extent of killing its civilians as well[[/note]]. Fortunately this is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in-series, [[spoiler:and Flit eventually develops past his hatred]].
** Kio Asuno wasn't exactly well liked at the beginning of his arc (some saw him as a [[ReplacementScrappy poor replacement]] for Flit and Asemu), but he definitely made no friends when he switched to TechnicalPacifism. Viewers who had hated SEED quickly drew parallels between him and Kira Yamato, but even those who like Kira or have no opinion on him were annoyed by Kio's actions. Bad enough that the reasons behind Kio's shift were extremely dubious[[note]]He basically made friends with the BigBad (even though the latter was an insane OmnicidalManiac), his wife and two random street kids, and then went through a PetTheDog side-plot that turned him overly sympathetic toward the Vagans[[/note]], but his portrayal as a TechnicalPacifist was even less endearing: badmouthing his grandfather (who had already lost much to the Vagans' wanton genocide) and anyone else who didn't see the Vagans as warm wholesome people, insisting on pleading with enemy pilots to "understand" no matter how many times it didn't work (i.e. it ''never'' worked), and overall seemed far more concerned with Vagan deaths than his own wingmates.
** Zeheart Galette. Being a Char Clone is often a BaseBreaker enough[[note]]Unless you're the original Char, then chances are you're going to be hated by some segment of the ''Gundam'' fanbase for being a clone, no matter how distinguished or well developed a character you are[[/note]], but Zeheart only compounded that status by being the most ineffectual Char Clone to date; despite his continually getting promoted up the ranks, Zeheart was at best an indecisive commander who repeatedly botched the Vagans' chances of victory. Even worse is the fact none of the characters ever saw Zeheart as a GeneralFailure; throughout the series he's reputed as one of Vagans' top generals, ([[spoiler:one who eventually became Ezelcant's successor as Vagan supreme commander]]), while the only character that ever saw Zeheart in any type of negative light, [[FatBastard Zanald Beihart]], was dismissed as a self-serving glory seeker (which he was) who demeaned Zeheart for personal gain (which he did) and otherwise had no basis to his claims (which was quite the contrary). Combine that with the the Third Generation's inconsistent writing, which caused Zeheart to alternate between a FatherToHisMen and WorthyOpponent to a pure GeneralRipper with a WeHaveReserves attitude in the span of a single episode, and you have one of the most poorly received ''Gundam'' villains since [[MobileSuitZetaGundam Jerid Messa]].
** The faction of Vagan as a whole, due to inconsistent writing. They were given a sympathetic and plausible reason for going to war, but most of the named characters who served as Vagan's face were JerkAss {{Blood Knight}}s with few redeeming qualities. The writers threw in a pair of {{Anvilicious}} episodes to remind people that Vagan still had a good reason to fight (and [[AuthorsSavingThrow explained]] the {{jerkass}}ery as being a consequence of bad living conditions)... then they gave the BigBad a [[VoodooShark nonsensical]] secret plan that tore down the sympathy that had been built up and returned the job of representing Vagan to the Jerkass {{Blood Knight}}s as soon as they left Second Moon. Not surprising that many fans were ''rooting'' for Flit to carry out his genocidal dreams.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:''Pokémon'']]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. Being a LongRunner with a broad fandom, features many characters who receive hatred from some groups. {{Replacement Scrapp|y}}ies are frequent. Principal scrappies include:
** Out of the main cast, Max gets the most hate. Certainly being an [[BrattyHalfPint insufferable know-it-all]] and his apparent pointlessness qualify him as prime Scrappy material. However, strangely enough, he didn't make it to the point of being the CreatorsPet even though he had all the potential to become one of these. Plus he did have some decently-done heartwarming moments. One of Max's problems is that he's a borderline BrattyHalfPint and TagalongKid to levels near being TheLoad. Whenever an episode stars him, it gives you the indication that he's going to start catching Pokémon for himself, but he never does (due to being underage). He promises one Ralts that he would come back and train it one day. He never actually does anything truly important to the story aside from [[SatelliteCharacter being a character that May can interact with.]]
** The classic Scrappy from the series is Ritchie, a clone of Ash [[MartyStu who has no negative qualities]] and was introduced just to [[DiabolusExMachina knock Ash out of his first tournament]] in the following episode. The writers proceeded to bring him back for a Johto mini-arc and then have two episodes in ''Chronicles'' focus on him.
** Butch and Cassidy get a lot of crap for their transformation into the [[TerribleTrio Terrible Duo]] of the spin-off series, since their usual popularity comes from being a more serious foil of Jessie and James.
** Togepi is blamed for Misty losing her personality in Johto. It didn't help that it just sat in her arms and did nothing of any interest for four years (except the odd episode or moment). When her character was restored on leaving the regular cast, Togepi was swiftly [[PutOnABus put on a more permanent bus]] -- ''finally'' evolving into Togetic and staying behind to guard the Mirage Kingdom Togepi. Togepi's the ''only'' Egg-hatched Mon to get this, too - most likely because all the others receive CharacterDevelopment and something to do (in fact, Larvitar, who only appeared in about seven episodes, is an EnsembleDarkhorse). This also leads to Misty being criticised for limiting Togepi's potential, which isn't easy to defend against. Ash's [[TheBusCameBack Phanpy]], another egg-hatched Pokémon, actually got to hang out with him in the Battle Frontier when Ash usually pulls BagOfSpilling by [[PutOnABus leaving his Pokémon]] with Oak for a fresh start (which is just a paper-thin excuse for the series producers to introduce new Pokémon from the current new generation that Ash raises with him) And what a surprise- it TookALevelInBadass and evolved into Donphan!
** Piplup has become one to much of the fanbase for [[CreatorsPet the opposite reason]]. Its "forced mascot" status isn't helping matters, and EverythingsBetterWithPenguins be damned. A lot of that stems from the fact Piplup pussed out on evolving when the fans were hellbent on seeing a badass Empoleon sooner or later. But no, it had to stay cutesy and hold onto an Everstone so it ''doesn't'' evolve. Hey, Pikachu, looks like you have someone else who won't evolve.
** And lest any of May's Pokémon be left out of the pile, her Squirtle made a bad first impression with the entire cheapness surrounding its first contest victory and the hate hasn't stopped since. The show already had a beloved Squirtle, making May's a ReplacementScrappy that was possibly particularly disliked by people who [[FirstInstallmentWins prefer Ash's original team]].
*** May's Munchlax is not popular, as it was largely TheLoad before the Battle Frontier arc, doing little but eating everything in sight. While it got better in the Battle Frontier, in which it finally got trained and became one of May's battlers, it didn't help that he [[spoiler:lost a contest to Harley]]. To make matters worse, Ash already had a Snorlax, making Munchlax little more than an EarlyBirdCameo with additional screen time.
** [[CreatorsPet Ash's Oshawott]] can be a real BaseBreaker for the same reasons as [[CreatorsPet Piplup]]. While there are people who love the thing to death, a ton of others hate [[SpotlightStealingSquad how much screentime he gets and how he is shoehorned into seemingly every episode]]. Even people who [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter love Oshawott as a species]] find themselves loathing this specific one.
** Ash's Pignite also gets a lot of flak for being a [[ReplacementScrappy recycled]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Charizard]] and [[BaseBreaker Infernape]]. The fact that Pignite as a species is already a Scrappy does not help his case. Evolving would have [[RescuedFromtheScrappyHeap changed this]], but no; it went the entire Unova series without evolving again.
** The samurai from the early episode is universally hated for interrupting Ash when he's in the middle of catching a Weedle in order to challenge him, causing said Pokemon to call a swarm of angry Beedrill, which proceed to steal Ash's Metapod and force them into hiding. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom The samurai]] [[{{Hypocrite}} angrily blames]] and berates Ash for not taking responsibility, even though Ash tried his hardest and that [[NeverMyFault all of this was the samurai's fault]] in the first place!
** Tracey, though a large reason for hatred of this character is due to his unsatisfying replacement of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Brock]] in the Orange Islands arc, he contributed so little to the group dynamic that he's seen as pointless. Example: ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}''. The only thing he did the entire movie was pull Misty and Ash back to dry land. Making matters worse, his role in the 2nd movie? It was ''decreased'' from the Japanese-USA transition, due to a deletion of several scenes, meaning even the guys in ''charge'' have it out for him (at least in the US).
** An example that's a bit more recent is the [[ReplacementScrappy Spiky-Eared Pichu]] from the 12th movie, who due to appearing in [=HGSS=] in place of [[OlympusMons Celebi]] is looking down two smoking-hot hate barrels at once. Game-wise, its stats are pathetic, it ''cannot evolve'' into a more-useful form, its moveset is brutally limited, and it replaced '''Celebi'''. In the movie, all it does is act cute and grab a key in a dire situation - something that just about any other 'Mon could have accomplished in the same situation.
** Tobias, who, even among the trainers who eliminate Ash from official tournaments, really stands out in how hated they are. Firstly, he has extremely little buildup before his battle with Ash, only appearing in a few cameos. Then there's ''how'' he defeats Ash. [[spoiler:He wins 6-2 over Ash, and the only two Pokémon he reveals from his party are '''''Latios and Darkrai''''', two legendary Pokémon. It is never revealed how he obtained them,]] and he seems to serve no purpose other than to eliminate Ash. Many fans even took this entire thing as a huge slap in the face.
** The anime version of Bianca from '' VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' was this in the four-part Club Battle arc. Aside from one battle, all she did throughout the tournament was mindlessly chase after a Pokémon that she wanted (Zorua) even though it isn't even hers, even to the point of offering to trade away her own starter Pokémon so that she could have it. However, the [[ADayInTheLimelight character development episode]] centered around her and her father was positively received, to the point where some consider her RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. After she TookALevelInBadass in the Clubsplosion, some people don't consider her a scrappy anymore.
** Trip, Ash's Rival from Black and White, isn't well received by a lot of fans either. People either dislike him for being [[ReplacementScrappy a weak replacement for Paul]], or just find him and his interactions with Ash irritating, especially his insistence on dismissing Ash's home region. And for basically replacing Cheren, who many fell would've been a better choice of a rival... Thankfully, unlike Paul, Trip's abrasiveness is toned down later, and he isn't as much of a CreatorsPet.
** Paul himself was a Scrappy to many people for his extreme JerkAss attitude towards Pokémon training and to anyone who questioned his methods, for being a CreatorsPet with a MisaimedFandom, and for being EasilyForgiven by Ash after the latter finally defeated him.
** Cameron. Introduced at the end of the Junior Cup arc, he displayed far greater traits of an IdiotHero than Ash ever did. Not only did he miss the tournament, but he ''[[EpicFail thought the Unova League took place in Ecruteak City in Johto]]''. He also got Ash lost in the woods, and even his own Riolu is disappointed with him; affectionately giving a FacePalm at his actions. It doesn't help that one, [[spoiler:he defeated fan favorite Bianca in what many perceived to be a cheap win,]] and two, the kid has scary-ass evolved Pokémon that prove to be a huge threat, like a damned '''[[OurDragonsAreDifferent Hyd]][[InfinityMinusOneSword rei]][[OmnicidalManiac gon]]''' and his little Riolu which seems to have gotten through TrainingFromHell like one would expect from Ash's Pikachu. To add further insult to the injury, he brings only 5 Pokemon to an ''official Unova League match of 6-on-6 against Ash''. Worse yet, Cameron's Riolu has received a lot of hate due to how he mimics his trainer's hyperactive attitude. The worst of all is Riolu evolving to Lucario as a last ditch attempt to defeat Ash's Snivy and Pikachu in the league. [[spoiler:And then it happened: Lucario defeated Pikachu, and Cameron won the battle against Ash, meaning Ash has yet again lost a major league, this time to such an air-headed trainer, and adding insult to injury in that Cameron was handicapped by having one less Pokemon than Ash.]] But as a bit of small consolation, Cameron [[spoiler:lost to [[CreatorsPet Virgil]], who then went on to win the league.]]
** Virgil also has notable hate for apparently having all of Eevee's evolutions and an Eevee itself, for the sake of making him "unique" as a trainer, but he was rather bland and not incredibly developed. To make matters worse, he spontaneously got to be in the tournament (by coincidentally getting all the badges), had almost no interaction with the main cast (at least Cameron shared tons of scenes with Ash), zero build-up (his introductory episode was the episode right before the tournament started), and [[spoiler:wins the tournament when his Eevee knocked out a Druddigon with a rather overpowered move. This lands him firmly in CreatorsPet territory.]] He's basically a grown-up Ritchie.
*** Notable that the hate for Virgil comes mostly from [[AmericansHateTingle American fans]], whereas in Japan he's actually an EnsembleDarkhorse.
** Serena, who, ironically, was originally rather well-liked in comparison to past female companions ([[FirstInstallmentWins Misty aside]]). She's perceived by most fans as having no character of her own [[SatelliteLoveInterest aside from her crush on Ash]], and just overall not doing anything that contributes to the group (30+ episodes in, and she still hasn't caught a single Pokémon or participated in a battle). She draws a lot of criticism and many go as far as to declare that she and her ShipTease with Ash are nothing more than a prop to draw in viewers.
*** Even Serena's Fennekin is this. Despite being Serena's only Pokémon, it has gotten barely any action and has even grabbed the JerkassBall on more than one occasion. This is in high contrast with Ash's Froakie and Clemont's Chespin, both of which are [[EnsembleDarkhorse Ensemble Darkhorses]] loved for their quirky personalities and dexterity in battle. Not helping is her shrill annoying voice which can get just as aggravating as Piplup's according to some.
** The Mewtwo from ''Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened''. She is quite unpopular with the fandom for filling a role that many believe could have been filled by the [[EnsembleDarkhorse well-loved]] established Mewtwo character from ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' and [[Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns its sequel]], for having a voice and personality that contrast sharply with said original Mewtwo, for having no explanation as to how a second Mewtwo ''is even possible'', and for generally being the FleetingDemographicRule personified. Even Miriam Pultro, her English voice actress and OneOfUs, [[https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=676840695674582&id=109462092412448 knew that the role would be controversial]].
** Now even [[TerribleTrio Team Rocket]] is starting to get this during the Kalos saga and the end of Unova. In the Unova saga, they take several levels in [[TookALevelInBadass badass and competence]], stop chasing after Ash and Co on a regular basis and did their own thing. As soon as the Team Plasma saga ended, they [[TookALevelInDumbass lost all that]] and went back to only thinking about catching Pikachu and occasionally whatever Pokemon is featured in the episode. Because of the change of pace during Unova, the Trio's usual stchik of constantly chasing Ash and Co. became incredibly annoying, with the worst example of this being the episode where they steal Mega Evolution data, only to promptly constantly try to Mega Evolve Pikachu.
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'':
** There was Emerald, the least popular Pokédex Holder ever. His [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstory]] and the ending of his arc helped ease the hate of him a bit, but even excluding Black and White, who are fairly new, he still barely has fans. The hate towards Emerald stems from the fact a lot of fans felt like [[EnsembleDarkhorse Wally]] would've been much better for the role of Dex Holder. ''That'' and his freakishly stupid design.
*** Even today with the recent announcement of the XY chapter, Emerald is still glaringly unpopular compared to new characters like Lack-Two, X, or Y.
** Gigi, White's star Tepig actress from the B/W arc, is quickly gaining universal hatred as she [[spoiler:ditched White for N, allowing White to fall off of the Ferris Wheel and resulting in her becoming a barely conscious, sobbing wreck below.]]
** You'd be surprised at the amount of hate being poured onto [[NiceGirl Yellow]], who happens to be the nicest person in the entire manga. A lot of fans seem to hate her because she supposedly comes off as a MarySue, [[FanDumb though she's anything but that]], though she is more of a BaseBreaker than an overall [[TheScrappy Scrappy]], as she does have her fair share of fans.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other anime]]
* ''Manga/AkamegaKiru'': The entire Wild Hunt group; which consists of a sadistic rapist/serial killer, a misogynistic pirate/rapist/murderer, a murder-addicted samurai, an insane singer/sexual predator, an amoral alchemist who experiments on people, and a paedophiliac/mass-murdering clown. They are universally loathed but didn't earn TheScrappy status until Chapter 46 [[spoiler:when the male members of the group brutally {{rape|IsASpecialKindOfEvil}}d and murdered the widowed wife and pre-adolescent daughter of the deceased Jaeger Bols, [[{{Squick}} on his grave]]]]. After that there isn't a single fan who isn't waiting for their extremely gruesome and painful deaths.
* ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'': Mayu Miyuki is widely regarded as the biggest Scrappy of the series, due largely in part to her clinginess to Kaoru and general {{cat|Fight}}tiness with {{Cat Smile}}r Tina Foster. Behind her, [[{{Meido}} Taeko Minazuki]]'s young cousin Chika is a ''real'' hyper character with slight MarySue hints added for good measure. The fact her deeply tanned skin gives slight images of {{Ethnic Scrappy}}dom doesn't help (undeserved, since there ''are'' dark-skinned Japanese).
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'':
** Japan, [[AmericansHateTingle at least in the West]]. In early Western fandom, it wasn't an uncommon sight to see someone attacking him as "the CreatorsPet who [[SpotlightStealingSquad hogs the spotlight]] and is ruining the anime" or claiming that Himaruya was exhibiting criminal MisplacedNationalism by not detailing ImperialJapan's atrocities in a series based on the light-hearted side of history that takes great care not to mention DudeNotFunny events like the Holocaust.
** At times, it ''really'' seemed like these haters were leaping on any and every excuse to bash him, even using the way some Japanese fans [[PossessionSue Sueified]] him in fanworks (which is pretty much [[NotSoDifferent what happens to America and Canada too in Western fandom]]) to deride his ''canon character'' as a Sue or claiming that he was a "harem lead" who had half of the entire cast in love with him (even though there's a grand total of one character who's made romantic/sexual overtures to him [''maybe'' two, depending on your interpretation], and this is brought up in only a couple of strips). Fortunately, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap this doesn't seem to be as prominent now]] as it's become clear that Japan is just one character of an ensemble series and there are a ''lot'' of episodes/strips focused on England, America, Germany, etc. instead.
** Korea and Sealand are two other early fandom scrappies and eventually got RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap over time too. For Korea, it was simply a case of fans' memories of the ugly incident with Korean MoralGuardians getting the Hetalia anime pulled from TV fading with the passage of time; for Sealand, it was the HetaliaBloodbath2010 that endeared him to many fans who had previously seen him as only a BrattyHalfPint.
** Chibitalia and Holy Roman Empire, being an epitome of TastesLikeDiabetes and having gotten quite the screentime in the anime, have garnered their fair share of haters throughout the run of Hetalia. Some of it is plain boredom and annoyance at two "stupid babies" being a SpotlightStealingSquad, but some of their detractors can get quite nasty. Especially with the idea that [[spoiler:Holy Roman Empire just might be a younger version of Germany, which somehow makes Germany less of a "real man" (or just goes against their idea of history)]]. The other younger versions of the characters have gotten hate and ridicule in spots, but nothing as extreme as some of the vitriol that a baby Italy and the one crushing on him can generate.
** The Principalities of Wy and Seborga instantly generated fan backlash due to not being based off bonafide countries, coupled with them being portrayed as young children/adolescents and buddies of the BrattyHalfPint Sealand. Wy's mouthy personality also hasn't helped her status.
* ''LightNovel/BakaToTestToShoukanjuu'':
** Mizuki Himeji. Receives the most attention from the main character, but is generic and mildly notorious at her best and [[{{Yandere}} terrifyingly psychotic]] at her worst. There's something wrong when her most prominent role is to routinely put people on the edge of death with her [[LethalChef attempts at cooking]].
** Minami Shimada. When your only defining [[{{Tsundere}} character trait]] [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale is]] [[KickTheDog to physically assault]] the main protagonist for the [[DisproportionateRetribution stupidest reasons]], you're not exactly going to be a fan favorite. She even [[ForTheEvulz openly admits beating up Yoshii is her hobby]]. By the time her CharacterDevelopment happens late in the series, it's too late for her to be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. The damage has been done, especially when she gets [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] [[TookALevelInJerkass in Season 2]].
** She has nothing on [[PsychoLesbian Miharu]], not only being absolutely insane when it comes to Minami, and almost always showing up to reaffirm her One-Sided Affection. [[spoiler:She is also the pseudo-antagonist of the Second Season Arc where she sets Yoshii and Yuugi up by scapegoating them for peeping into the Girl's Baths and making Minami and Himeji rather unlikable by pretty much turning them into BitchInSheepsClothing Material]]
* ''BakuganBattleBrawlers'': Baron is the show's scrappy. He's an [[FanBoy idolizing twit]] who looks like a strong man but has a voice that is higher pitched than his ''three year old sister''. He's generally incompetent, and mocked as the worst character even on the show. Still, he's done nothing to earn himself any pity.
** Well, at least Haos players will get a reprieve when Fabia is introduced. However, Subterra players are already dreading the approach of Jake.
* ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'':
** Takuro Nakai. Initially well-received by the fanbase because of his continuing determination to get serialized despite consistent failure in the past, Nakai lost any love from the majority of the readers when a little success went to his head and he began behaving like a complete JerkAss towards his former friend Aoki Ko, trying to pressure her into being his girlfriend when she needed his help. After leaving for a while, he's come back in an even harder to like position, as an assistant to the SmugSnake Nanamine who is extremely rude to the other assistants unless they're cute girls and doesn't seem to care about much except for the free space and pizza Nanamine is providing him with. There are still little glimmers of the nicer guy he used to be underneath the self-pitying JerkAss, especially when he gets back on the road to working toward his dream as [[spoiler:Hiramaru's assistant]]. Until the mandatory redemption, this was probably an IntendedAudienceReaction, but said redemption did in the end not waver many.
** Another series scrappy is Miura, Takagi and Mashiro's second editor; unlike the wise and talented Hattori, an EnsembleDarkhorse, Miura is new, inexperienced, and not very good at what he does while Takagi and Mashiro are working with him. While he's worked to improve himself, his first impression as an incompetent ReplacementScrappy to such a popular character earned him a lot of hate, presumably influencing [[spoiler:Hattori returning to being Ashirogi Muto's editor for PCP]].
** [[{{Bishonen}} Shun]] [[FanNickname "Dog boy"]] [[{{Bishonen}} Shiratori]], a rather spoiled would-have-been [[TheWoobie woobie]] who was the cause of a second breaking up of the lead team [[spoiler:or so it would seem]]. The creators may have caught on with this one, because past his arc, the character is never seen or heard from again, unless one counts the hand wave cancellation of his series.
* ''BattleOfThePlanets'': 7-Zark-7 is hated violently by even die-hard fans. Actually a Western addition, rendered necessary by Moral Guardians when its parent anime was translated.
* ''Anime/BenTo'': ClassRepresentative Shiraume. Her chief character traits are slapping Satou and being a PsychoLesbian to (mostly) Oshiroi.
** Orthros because how incredibly overpowered they are. It's not that the Worf Effect was in well, full effect, but that they curb stomped the much-loved Yarizui, and as a result, she does nothing in the series' climax.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Nina, the young prostitute of the Conviction arc. Many hate her for being a DirtyCoward, [[KickTheMoralityPet for the way she treated Joachim]] and for being completely useless to people who are protective of her, while she is too selfish and scared to help them back. Although she is very aware of her faults and does try to help, and has good reasons to be afraid.
** Korkus, for being a massive {{Jerkass}} to Guts.
** Puck wasn't very liked at his introduction. He got better, but not so much.
** Isidro isn't well-liked either. Like Puck, some fans don't find his PluckyComicRelief funny, and his WrongGenreSavvy traits don't help either.
* ''[[Manga/BlackButler Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler]]'':
** Elizabeth, mainly because many fans dislike her for [[DieForOurShip getting in between the Sebastian/Ciel pairing]] and find her irritating and [[TastesLikeDiabetes sickeningly sweet]]. Not even [[spoiler:her CharacterDevelopment and the reveal that [[TookALevelInBadass she's actually a]] LittleMissBadass]] has really helped: once that was revealed, the "MarySue!" cries were heard miles away.
** Aloise Trancy. Aside from basically being a blonde {{Expy}} of Ciel with his ''own'' demon butler on his side, his whole role seems to consist of dirty backstory, strange, sexual talks with his butler (which is totally ''fine'' if it's between Ciel and Sebastian, but not between Alois and Claude) and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking crossdressing]]. Even when his backstory is revealed to make him sympathetic, he ''still'' is annoying [[spoiler: and seeing his head explode is quite enjoyable]].
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'': The hatred among the fandom of Chaka is so great that he was voted the worst character '''in the series''' on a poll. Not that he [[SmugSnake didn't do anything]] to deserve it.
* ''{{Blassreiter}}'': Malek started as a whiny, cowardly child who was pissed at God for not handling his problems for him. Granted, he did suffer some serious discrimination and bullying due to being and Outsider, but that's going a tad overboard.
* ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan'' has the title character, Dokuro. For the people who hate the series for being a cruel SadistShow, she's the general root of it, [[DisproportionateRetribution brutally murdering Sakura for the dumbest of reasons]].
* ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'': The main character Tsubasa for being a InvincibleHero who always wins and a FlatCharacter compared to the other characters.
** If there's a non-playing character likely to be hated in the fandom, it's either Kumi or Kanda.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'': During the first season of the show, Nagisa was absolutely ''hated'' by a number of hardcore Kyou/Ryou/Kotomi/Tomoyo fans who could not accept the idea of her and Tomoya as the OfficialCouple.
* ''{{Claymore}}'': Raki had the misfortune of being the perpetual DistressedDude and NonActionGuy in a cast full of [[AmazonBrigade badass warrior women.]] The fact that he [[MenDontCry cries a lot]] and is very closely bonded to the main character, whom the fanbase loves to [[YuriFan pair up with her female comrades,]] also doesn't help. His screen time decreases a lot as the series goes on, and he did TakeALevelInBadass, which helps, though now the fans complain that he's ''too'' strong and fear he'll take pagetime away from the female characters.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'':
** Although her case is the same as AmericansHateTingle, Misa Amane is a scrappy for the fact that she sticks out like a sore thumb, either endlessly talks about [[PoisonousFriend how she loves Light or whines about circumstances keeping them apart]], and otherwise just calls a ton of attention to herself without contributing much. (And her main contribution to the story only serves to cast her as an UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom.) Per WordOfGod, Misa's entire point ''was'' to stick out like a sore thumb and feel out of place, in order to make the series even more chaotic and the situation more interesting.
** Near has earned a Scrappy status from many fans who viewed him as a [[ReplacementScrappy poor knock-off of L]]. ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near_(Death_Note)#Conception_and_development_of_Near Even the creator bashed him.]]''
** Mello receives the same treatment from some fans, though to a much lesser degree (presumably due to his being a more original character).
** Demegawa. Fans considered him to be a {{Jerkass}} {{Expy}} of [[SpiderMan J. Jonah Jameson]] who's merely concerned with increasing his own profits. [[spoiler:''He even caused one of Light's plans to fail because of his MoneyFetish!'']]. [[spoiler:Good thing Mikami kills him]].
** Takada. Whenever fans talk about her, it's either that she was a [[InformedAbility informed intelligent]] fool who easily fell for Light's charms or a stuck up jerk, particularly on how she treated Misa. She even gets plenty of flak from fangirls who swore to exact their revenge on her for [[spoiler:killing [[DracoInLeatherPants Mello]] - though it's hard to imagine a worse fate for her than the one that actually transpired]].
* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'':
** The Detective Boys. Ayumi, Mitsuhiko and Genta are normal children who unknowingly befriend an undercover TeenGenius in a series filled with complex murder mysteries. Thus, they tend to ignore all his instructions of caution which puts their lives in danger or comes close to blowing his cover multiple times. They even view Conan as the lowest member of the group while trying to stop him taking all the credit for helping solve cases. They ''do'' get better in the manga, as they come to appreciate Conan's talent, start to develop their own abilities, and befriend another Teen Genius (Ai Haibara) who keeps them more in line, but this is generally not reflected in the anime {{filler}}s where they will remain in Scrappy status in the eyes of many fans.
** While not as universally reviled as the Detective Boys, Kogoro Mouri seems to have his share of haters. This stems from the fact that he's a JerkAss SmallNameBigEgo who's prone to many KickTheDog moments with Conan. Two stood out: One was when Conan, with logical reasoning, tried convincing Kogoro not to automatically assume a woman he's attracted to is innocent (She was indeed the killer), only for him to punch Conan. In one of the rare occasions he's actually confronted for hitting Conan, he respondes with "He started it by being annoying!" Another was the episode where he broke his leg. In the hospital, he didn't want to miss a Yoko Okino TV event. While Conan was out solving the case, the Detective Boys were wheeling him to the nearest TV, but were slowing down due to lack of manpower. When Conan shows up, Kogoro threatens to put him on the streets if he missed the show.
** Sonoko Suzuki also has her fair share of haters, who accused her of being a RichBitch who is selfish, perverted, and arrogant to the point where she makes Shinichi look humble.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':
** Mr Shu counts. An annoying, cowardly, and incredibly irritating SadistTeacher who enjoyed whipping Gohan ForTheEvulz.
** Babidi has a hatedom as well. Although you're supposed to hate him because he's evil, a lot of fans disliked him because of his frequent outbursts and a "bad" villain because he got other villains to do his work for him.
* ''Anime/DragonBallGT:'' Pan and Giru. Most fans do not like either of them and consider them whiny and irritating. Especially during the Shadow Dragon Saga, Pan always gets in trouble by the other Shadow Dragons, specifically Nuova, Haze, Naturon and Rage Shenron.
** Giru has it worse- he's actually PutOnABus all the way through Baby's story arc because he's been totaled after trying to protect Trunks. Wonder why nobody tried to fix him in all that time...?
* ''ElfenLied'': [[KidsAreCruel The bullies]] at Kaede's orphanage are probably the most hated children in anime--of particular note is an infamous scene where they force Kaede to watch while they beat a puppy she was caring for to death--especially the little girl who is widely believed by half of the fanbase to have been a ManipulativeBitch and shows up at the last second. (Said little girl is however ''occasionally'' subjected to AlternateCharacterInterpretation -- we only have [[UnreliableNarrator Lucy's biased account]] for her actually acting out of malice). As a side note, many fans were unhappy that the bullies' deaths were quick, wanting their deaths to be slow and painful.
** Yuka, due to the fact that she is in love with her cousin and physically beats him up for no reason. Plus the fact that she goes into {{Wangst}} over things which are [[AngstDissonance comparatively minor]], in contrast to almost everyone else on the show - even when you have positive traits, being selfish in contrast to the other members of the cast is ''not'' the way to go with a character... Though odds are that her more unreasonable haters can probably find ''some'' way [[InsaneTrollLogic to blame her]] for Lucy's MoralEventHorizon crossing (which ''wasn't her fault at all'').
* Most fans of ''Eiken'' dislike Komoe for her {{squick}}y character concept (an elementary school student with ''very'' large GagBoobs).
* ''EurekaSeven'': Eureka's adopted "children": Link, Mayter, and Maurice, or as most fans will say "[[BrattyHalfPint the brats]]". In their first centered episode (Ep. 6), they seemed to have learned their lesson and started to become changed characters. Only to go back to their usual selves by the next episode. Not only are their voices extremely grating whenever they open their mouths, but they serve ''no real purpose'' other than to provide [[DudeNotFunny "comedy"]] in the form of torturing [[TheWoobie Renton]], and to get Holland, Eureka, and the others in trouble (see episode 40). Even worse, during The Great Wall Arc (from about episode 40 up until the end of the series) they become '''important''' semi-major characters.
** Talho's behavior in episode four didn't earn her any fans. She slave-drove Renton like a housemaid and then punished him when the Gekkostate didn't get the profits they were hoping for, even though he had little to do with that outcome.
** Holland is even worse than Talho. Whenever things don't go his way, of he suspects Renton in the slightest of insubordination, he outright assaults him. Despite his CharacterDevelopment, some people never let go of the fact that he took joy out of beating up a kid half his age.
** The fact that he [[spoiler:used to date Renton's sister and even recognized Renton as her younger sibling]] only adds insult to literal injury.
** In the sequel ''EurekaSevenAo'': Truth is this for being an OutsideContextVillain with ComboPlatterPowers in a series where there is no superpowers. at all. Not to mention his randomly killing people and other things.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Romeo. To be exact, while he was barely tolerable (just like the rest of the extras of the guild, most fans acknowledge that they're there but don't care), but in filler, this rocketed him into this status in both fandoms. One reason is his MUCH extended screentime, most of which is pointless; and another is because of the ShipTease he gets with Wendy. The Japanese fandom, upon seeing him interact with Wendy, promptly flew into a rage.
** Most God Slayers recieve this treatment too, because their magic is basically one big Informed Ability and they all are merely Smug Snakes. Chelia, however, is the only exception.
* [[HeManWomanHater Louis]] [[AristocratsAreEvil El]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Bridget]] from ''{{Freezing}}'' is, without a doubt, the most hated character in the manhwa, and [[JustifiedTrope for more than good reasons]]: he regularly abused and molested his half-sister Satella, causing her to develop [[HatesBeingTouched a crippling phobia of being touched]] and kick-starting a great majority of her issues. It was bad enough that, since he couldn't have his way with Satella anymore, he molested and raped his own Pandora [[JerkassWoobie Holly]] [[LoveMartyr Rose]] because she looked like his half-sister. And the hatred for him only solidified during the Bali arc, in which he tried to make Satella come back to him, and gave [[NiceGuy Kazuya]] a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown when he stood up to Satella, not to mention treated poor Holly Rose like garbage. [[spoiler:The fact that he got a KarmaHoudini, was EasilyForgiven by Satella in a prime example of ProtagonistCenteredMorality, and had a very out-of-character HeelFaceTurn after pulling a NoOneCouldSurviveThat only served to make his many haters rage.]]
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist:''
** We are given one of the most horrific characters: [[spoiler:[[MadScientist Shou Tucker]]]], for [[spoiler:[[MoralEventHorizon transmuting his daughter into a chimera, as well as having done the same to his wife prior to those events.]]]]
** The gold-toothed doctor is also not well liked, often being referred to as a "bastard." This is because he [[spoiler:almost kills Riza by having his goons slit her throat to get Roy to open the Gate.]] It's to be pointed out that both [[spoiler: Tucker]] and the unnamed doctor lack the EvilIsCool and EvilIsSexy aura that many of the other villains have, which only serves to make them more unlikeable.
** The Wrath from the 2003 anime probably doesn't have a very big fanbase either. Well, he ''could have'', if those crystals he gobbled down from the Homunculi didn't make him AxCrazy.
** Noah from TheMovie of the first anime, ''Conqueror of Shamballa'', is pretty disliked. It's fairly telling that she was heavily teased as a possible love interest for Ed, and yet everyone ships him with [[HoYay Alfons Heiderich]] instead.
* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': Leonard Tessarossa. Sure, he was made out to be a (relatively) "honorable," NobleDemon whose intentions, [[KnightTemplar extreme as they may be]], could be considered grander and more for the greater good than anything {{So|ciopathicHero}}usuke [[TheStoic would care for]]. However, his cockiness and InsufferableGenius, along with his superiority complex have earned him great ire among fandom. He ''especially'' gets flak after manhandling Kaname and {{brainwash|ed}}ing her, causing her to become an angsting DamselInDistress. And interestingly enough, being a PrettyBoy seemed to actually work ''against'' him, as numerous people have taken to despising him for being a SissyVillain, calling him "[[FanNickname Leotard]]". The funniest part is that he's ''supposed'' to be the most sympathetic villain that the series has (seeing how Gauron and Gates are [[AxCrazy psychotic]], insane pedophiles), yet he appears to be the most hated.
** Kaname gets this due to her tendency to assault Sosuke for pretty much doing his job.
* ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' gives us Pollun, the [[SixthRanger new addition]] to the magical girl duo's {{Non Human Sidekick}}s whose immature and whiny personality had a number of fans out for his blood. However, he does stop being as bratty towards the end of the series, and his more mature and considerate depiction in the following season, ''[=MaX Heart=]'' was [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap much better received]]. Unfortunately, that same season brought Lulun, who is just as whiny and bratty as first season Pollun, if not moreso, and just as unpopular.
** ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'': Milk is one of the most hated mascots ever, for being an annoying brat and deliberately causing trouble for the Pretty Cure, especially around the time of her debut. There are also people who absolutely '''HATE''' Coco's fairy form because his voice is so annoying that it not only makes your ear drums bleed out, it makes you wish you could rip out his vocal cords!
** It's been shown that if you ''dare'' ruin how things should run in a ''Pretty Cure'' series, you will get hit with this. [[ShrinkingViolet Ayumi Sakagami]] of ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars New Stage'' was hit with this because her screen time took up what fans felt should have been devoted to every other established character (even though it wouldn't save or improve the movie in any way). As well [[DeusExMachina Aguri Madoka/Cure Ace]] of ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' became this because she was just the cherry on top of a series of ShockingSwerve actions. Her later BrattyHalfPint actions just made it worse, especially since fans were recovering from [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Ako]].
** Speaking of ''Doki Doki'', [[AllLovingHero Mana Aida]] (aka Cure Heart) has also gotten a lot of flack for essentially being an overly bland and perfect MarySue and confirmed by WordOfGod CreatorsPet, taking up way more screen time than all of the other characters. She also doesn't have any realistic character flaws, giving the haters justification for calling her a CanonSue. She is considered the main reason for the lowest broadcast ratings of a Precure season yet.
** [[AloofAlly Iona Hikawa]]/[[{{Jerkass}} Cure Fortune]] of ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' has been in this category for awhile due to the fact that she's been an unrelenting asshole towards Hime Shirayuki/Cure Princess. However, this turns into JerkassHasAPoint when it's revealed that [[spoiler:Hime [[NiceJobBreakingItHero was the one who opened]] [[SealedEvilInACan the Axia Box]], letting out the Phantom Empire]], this action causing the entire basis of the story. [[AllLovingHero Megumi]] also has some haters due to her inhuman [[TastesLikeDiabetes obsession with love and happiness which many people find nauseating]].
* ''Manga/GirlsBravo'': Kirie. In the first season her regular (and rather brutal) beatings of AccidentalPervert Yukinari (sometimes for no reason at all), who's supposed to be her ''best friend'', tendency to assume the worst of him if she should find him around a half naked girl, and unwillingness to listen to him explain his actions, did ''not'' earn her any points in the fandom. Neither did her tendency to verbally berate him if she suspected he was being perverted (which he wasn't) by calling ''him'' a jerk. Not to mention Kirie knows Yukinari has a fear of women (as a result of being bullied by them all his life) and developed an allergy to them because of it. One would question why she ''still'' keeps beating the crap out of him in spite of that. In fact, some fans say it's because of {{Tsundere}}s like Kirie that they grew to hate {{Tsundere}}s in general. She becomes nicer in the second season and her number of moments beating Yukinari decrease heavily. For some fans, it worked, for many, it was too little too late.
** Fukuyama, an obnoxious pervert. Unlike Kirie, he get's no character development. Even WebVideo/TheCartoonHero picked him over her to be in his Top 10 Most Hated Animated Characters list.
* Shu Ouma from ''Anime/GuiltyCrown''. Many people calls him a weak, spineless young man, surrounded by stronger and more interesting characters. He gets RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap later due to being the CosmicPlaything and TakenALevelInBadass.
** Souta turns into this after his stupidity [[spoiler:gets Hare killed]].
** Arisa and some students after [[spoiler:they stabbed Shu in the back]]. After he succeeds in breaking them out of the enclosing wall that would have doomed the city.
* ''HajimeNoIppo'':
** [[TheRival Ichiro Miyata]], mostly due to the accusation that he became a one-man SpotlightStealingSquad during his endlessly long fight with Randy Boy Jr.
** Surprisingly, Ippo's love interest Kumi Mashiba has ''escaped'' DieForOurShip and/or RealWomenNeverWearDresses based bashing, even from [[YaoiFangirl the yaoi corner]]...
** Not everybody hates him, but Takamura is a completely unsympathetic [[JerkAss Jerkass]] who does unreasonably atrocious things to his friends, while also being a raging [[MartyStu Marty Stu]].
** Manabu Itakagi gets a lot of hate for being incredibly [[{{Pride}} cocky]].
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' has Hayate's AbusiveParents. Even though their abuse is played for laughs, they make [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Mr. and Mrs. Turner]] look like Parents of the Year.
* ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'':
** Out of the main characters, Rei seems to be the least liked. Many fans consider her to be too needy and the whiniest out of the main cast. It also doesn't help that she [[DieForOurShip rivals fan-favorite Saeko as a possible love interest]] to Takashi.
* ''Manga/IchigoOneHundredPercent'': The author stated that many of the fanletters she got said "I hate Chinami!". Considering Chinami was an incredibly superficial AttentionWhore during most of the series' run, the hatred is somewhat justified.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'':
** Fans hate Shippo for being a [[MouthyKid smart-mouthed]], whiney, [[TheLoad useless]] BrattyHalfPint.
** Koga also falls into this trope for being a smug KarmaHoudini.
** Kikyo, especially for Inuyasha/Kagome [[DieForOurShip shippers]]. Her tendency to show up right when Inuyasha's and Kagome's relationship is about to go to the next level doesn't help.
*** Same for Kagome, even though it's definitely not as prevalent.
* ''Anime/KaleidoStar'': May Wong from the second season, owed heavily to her initial snobbish attitude (until Leon decides to engage in a bit of painful "[[BreakTheHaughty attitude adjustment]]"). Even after [[CharacterDevelopment she]] ''[[CharacterDevelopment does]]'' [[CharacterDevelopment learn the lesson]] (and learns it ''quicker'' than Leon himself), fans simply [[NeverLiveItDown will NOT stop raging against her.]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'':
** Natsuru has scrappy status among fans for being [[ObliviousToLove incredibly dense]].
** The love interests come off as [[SatelliteLoveInterest incredibly shallow]]; try to think of something positive they have done that wasn't some ploy to get Natsuru to like them. And remember that prior to meeting Natsuru, each killed other Kampfer for fun.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': While it's unclear where he stands in the Japanese fandom, Naito Longchamp was near-universally despised by a large percentage of overseas fans due largely to his goofy appearance and rambunctious personality. This only applies to the manga, however; the anime wound up writing him out of the plot entirely. However, this may be undergoing a reverse process -- fans have claimed that Longchamp appearing may be the only thing that can ''save'' the show.
* ''KeroroGunsou'':
** The anime is known for {{Flanderization}} and {{Canon Sue}}s, adding several new recurring characters or expanding their roles. One of the most despised anime-exclusive characters is Joriri, an unshaven bum who first appeared in the Chibi-Kero {{Flashback}} episodes. Basically a {{Perma Stubble}}d {{Expy}} for Adult!Keroro, he serves as a bad role model for the young tadpoles and engages in lots of [[SpotlightStealingSquad scene-stealing antics]]. His first appearance bore a striking resemblance to one manga chapter focused on Giroro's relationship with his brother, leading fans to label Joriri a ReplacementScrappy. ([[MisBlamed The chapter was later adapted faithfully, but by then it was too late]], [[SpotlightStealingSquad and they'd found other reasons to hate him]].) His frequent reappearances have him verging on CreatorsPet, particularly after he abruptly showed up on Earth and shacked up with the Platoon.
** Kululu is deliberately written as a JerkAss, and it's obvious everyone else is ''supposed'' to hate him, but it doesn't help that he does little of interest. More specifically, he's less of a character and more of a plot device used to add machines or science-goes-awry scenarios to the plot.
** The anime's version of Dororo gets a lot of flak for seeming like a whiny, degenerate hermit compared to his more "speak softly but carry a big stick" portrayal in the manga. He's commonly demoted to being the SixthRanger (even though it's a FiveManBand), not present in many plots involving the rest of the Keronians, and while he tries to be the OnlySaneMan against their more wicked ideas, he's nowhere near as assertive as his manga counterpart and ends up the ButtMonkey a lot. What makes this all even worse is that his partner, Koyuki, is still shown as outgoing in the anime, and constantly interracting with her friends, which only draws attention to the fact that meanwhile, Dororo seems to be sulking in a corner somewhere.
** Natsumi for her condescending attitude, her blatant racism towards the Keronians, beating them even in times when they don't deserve it, and for her CommonMarySueTraits. [[TookALevelInJerkAss The Girls Day]] [[{{Flanderization}} episode]] [[{{Wangst}} didn't help much either]].
* ''Anime/KiddyGirlAnd'': Ascoeur draws a lot of flak for her high-pitched screaming and childish behavior throughout the series. She barely gets her act together as the show progresses, which many viewers regard as way too late.
* [[CreatorsPet Tiff/Fumu]] from ''KirbyOfTheStars'' is this to a ton of people. Not only is she a know-it-all joykill, but she tends to [[SpotlightStealingSquad get more screentime than Kirby himself]] and likes to bitch about everything and boss everyone around. It doesn't help that a lot of people consider her to be a MarySue and what basically is an anime version of [[TheSimpsons Lisa Simpson]].
** Tokkori is debatably worse. Give Tiff/Fumu some credit, she's kind and supportive of Kirby. Tokkori, on the other hand, is a mean-spirited JerkAss who contributes nothing outside of being difficult and a jerk to Kirby.
* ''Manga/KotouraSan'':
** Hiyori and both of Haruka's parents are all nearly universally hated by fans due to their (mis)treatment of Haruka; though you're ''[[IntendedAudienceReaction supposed]]'' to hate her parents, since they [[HateSink have no redeeming qualities]]. Hiyori, on the other hand, is Manabe's HopelessSuitor, but he and Haruka are the OfficialCouple.
** The unnamed old woman who [[spoiler:takes the stray cat Haruka had been feeding to a shelter]] gets a special mention; she has collected many death threats from fans [[WhamLine just by saying a few words to Haruka]].
* Yoshiko Tanaka from TheLegendOfBlackHeaven is an example of this category, compared to everything that goes on in the series. She is also the reason for her husband, Oji Tanaka's initial mid-life depression.
* ''LoveHina'':
** To say that [[{{Tsundere}} Naru Narusegawa]] is hated by most of the fandom would be an understatement. Her unfair abuse of [[ButtMonkey Keitaro Urashima]] had ended up rubbing most fans the wrong way and the fact that she's never called out on it had instantly pissed off a lot of fans, who have come to believe that Naru is nothing more than a JerkSue KarmaHoudini. [[spoiler:The fact that she ends up marrying Keitaro in the end didn't help matters either]].
** The hate also goes for [[BrotherSisterIncest Kanako Urashima]]: it generally stems from the feeling that she doesn't belong in the series, as she was introduced late and has a darker personality and back story that seems to contrast with the rest of the series. She also gets a lot more hate from fans of the anime, where she was portrayed as extremely flat, and didn't have time to develop like she did in the manga.
* ''Anime/LuckyStar'': [[OccidentalOtaku Patricia Martin]], for several reasons:
### [[PhenotypeStereotype Some felt that the character is insulting to Americans in general]], particularly fans of Japanese culture.
### Patricia Ja Lee, who voices her in the English dub, sounds like a badly-pitched MinnieMouse;
### She doesn't seem to "fit in" with a group of Japanese schoolgirls in [[SchoolgirlSeries a series about Japanese schoolgirls]]. She was intended to be an AffectionateParody of American Otakus, not in any way mean spirited, but that fell flat for many.
* {{Maburaho}}: The members of Kazuki and Yuna's class (and the two class representatives in particular) may be collectively the most petty and selfish class in anime, putting Kazuki on trial and trying to mete out punishments simply because he is friendly with Yuna. They even go so far as to sabotage a collaboration with another class just to spite [[NiceGuy Kazuki]].
* ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'':
** The manga adds up the newcomer Cypha of Huckebein as one of the Scrappies for [[spoiler:[[CurbStompBattle trashing fan favorite Signum through cheating]] and leaving her nearly dead. As she is the answer for ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'''s [[BigBadWannabe Wilhelm von Juergen]], who committed similar crime to the character Signum is {{Expy}}-ing, Lamia Loveless, and he gets the same heat with her, it's like Cypha has resigned herself to this position from get-go.]]
** Curren seems to get a fair amount of hate for [[spoiler:[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice stabbing]] Hayate to [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome interrupt a spell that would have been]] a Moment of Awesome for her, then defeating Vita and Erio, both of whom had the AEC weapons that Signum lacked, almost instantly]].
** The Huckebein in general are [[VillainSue grossly overpowered unrepentant mass-murderers]] who treat the heroes of the series as [[SmugSnake no more than a nuisance]]. The writer actually expected people to find them likeable and sympathetic.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Anya is markedly less popular than most of the other characters. The two main reasons for this are her BrattyHalfPint / {{Tsundere}} behavior (made worse by the fact that she appears extremely immature and petty compared to [[WiseBeyondTheirYears the rest of the cast]]), and because she has very little actual plot importance, making her presence seem kind of pointless. It doesn't help that you'd think Negi's childhood friend would play a big part in things or at the very least shake things up a good deal by appearing, [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot but she ultimately didn't amount to much and was soon lost in the tidal wave of characters.]]
* ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'':
** A sizable contingent of fandom has it in for male lead character Yuuichi Tate, as the NonActionGuy Love Interest of the {{Red Headed Hero}}ine. His case isn't helped much by some of the [[WhatAnIdiot questionable actions]] he took to [[CanNotSpitItOut finally getting around to showing his affections]], most coming at the expense of his ChildhoodFriend Shiho Munakata.
** Shiho gets quite a bit of this, as well, because of her [[ClingyJealousGirl clinginess and jealous attitude]] to Yuuichi and [[spoiler:several attempts on Mai's life, as well as [[KickTheDog killing Mai's]] [[RevengeByProxy brother Takumi]].]].
* ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'':
** Tomoe gets a lot of fan hatred, as her crush on Shizuru[[note]]who, in contrast to her teenage Mai-HiME counterpart, is a young adult and quite a bit older than Tomoe[[/note]] being the sole motivation for her villainy is taken to excessively cruel and uncomfortable lengths (especially when there were quite a few legitimate grievances she could have had with Arika).
** Sergey also gets a lot of hate in some circles, because his interactions with Arika and Nina make him come off as a {{Lolicon}} at times, even though it's ''Nina'' who takes the initiative, and also because he reminds some fans ([[{{Expy}} visually]]) of Yuuichi (see above).
* ''MegaManNTWarrior'':
** Yai Ayano, the RichBitch trope taken to its most abhorrent extreme. Her role consists mainly of boasting, whining, deriding, screeching, and not developing many positive traits along the way. About the only thing useful about her is her money, which gives the other heroes some occasional firepower when they need it, but she didn't even earn it herself; her father did, so it's questionable whether Yai does anything good.
** The worst was episode 34, "Lost Money Panic". In the course of one episode, Yai derides people who believe in donating money to charity, screeches her head off at losing all of her money, poo-poos her friends' attempts to help her, and doesn't even learn a valuable lesson about the error of her ways at the end. It's enough to make you yearn for an {{Anvilicious}} AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segment.
** Duo and Slur have a very firm claim to Scrappydom among many viewers, as the arguable mascots of SeasonalRot in the "Stream" arc. Thanks to nearly-Godlike aliens coming and using the world as a big laboratory to pit good against evil, they forced the plot into a more formulaic status than it had ever been: Almost ceaselessly, the two overhear a person with a casual human flaw complaining about something and wishing absentmindedly it could be different, they give him a Navi to grant his wish but also threaten the world, Lan and Mega Man have to stop it; lather rinse repeat.
*** Slur took it UpToEleven due to being an ObviouslyEvil SmugSnake villian, and specist to boot. [[spoiler: Thus the fandom rejoiced when Bass killed her in the most humiliating way possible]].
* ''MegaManStarForce'': Luna Shirogane ([[DubNameChange Or Luna Platz]]). It didn't help that she was in a love triangle with the main character Subaru Hoshikawa/Geo Stelar and Misora Hibiki/Sonia Strumm, and some fans ship the other two only because Misora looks like Meiru/Mayl and Subaru looks like Netto/Lan from VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork ignoring their personalities, which in some cases (like Subaru and Netto) are completly opposites. Things were also bad for her because of her {{Flanderization}} in the anime, which focused too much on her {{tsun|dere}}tsun side and eliminating nearly any dere-dere]]. It's still a case of AmericansHateTingle, since she is more popular in the japanese fandom than her love rival Misora.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'':
** Touko ([[FanNickname Drill-chan]]) is disliked by a fairly large part of the fandom because of her [[{{Jerkass}} bitchy attitude]], despite all the efforts of the creator to present her in a more positive light. The fact that Yumi keeps relentlessly pursuing her as her petite soeur only adds to this, since a lot of fans think that there are more suitable candidates-- [[HugeSchoolGirl Kanako]], for instance.
** Compounding this is the fact that Kanako is called out for her initial bad behavior while Touko is never told to stop either by Sachiko or Yumi herself.
* ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade'': Masamune Kadoya. The reason being for him is he's your standard annoying shonen IdiotHero with IdiotHair and makes himself off as a BrattyHalfPint most of the time. Simply put- the fanbase thinks he's a whiny pussy.
* ''Manga/MiraiNikki'': [[{{UselessProtagonist}} Yukiteru Amano]]. To put it in simple terms, he's the main character of a manga in which [[ThereCanOnlyBeOne 12 people are selected to kill each other for the honor of becoming God,]] yet is easily scared of everything. The way that he always [[EasilyForgiven lets Yuno hang around him despite all she's done might make some people think that he's got some nice morals]] but he's always [[DirtyCoward doing it for his own protection.]] Once he finally does stand up for himself and act cool-headed, he only does it while becoming a borderline VillainProtagonist himself, disregarding all innocent lives that stand in his way of becoming God simply because [[DeathIsCheap as God, he thinks he'll be able to revive all the people he's slaughtered.]] [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope He's told that even God can't revive the dead.]]]] Once he finds this out though, he [[MoralEventHorizon kills all of his friends because Yuno, his yandere girlfriend, lied and said that they were betraying him.]]
** Yukiteru's father, Kurou is probably the most hated character in the series. He only re-enters his son's life so he can destroy his cell phone to clear his relatively small debt (in all fairness, he seems to have no idea that this will kill him). He's a huge DirtyCoward who steals his son's parachute to escape from a collapsing tower, leaving him and his girlfriend to die, then [[spoiler: stabs his ex-wife, accidentally killing her, when she tries to turn him in to the police for it.]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** Sakura Haruno. First, some fans disliked her because she [[FauxActionGirl wasn't powerful enough]] and often let her {{fangirl}}ing over [[TheStoic Sasuke]] take away from her potential. When ''Shippuden'' starts, she trained with Tsunade in [[TheMedic medical arts]] and has [[TookALevelInBadass became a competent ninja in her own right]] and it looked like she was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, but she quickly became a disliked character again after her [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome fight against Sasori]]. People were disappointed that she didn't really do anything significant after that fight, and her fake love confession to Naruto, her inability to kill the [[spoiler:defected Sasuke]] and her general crying and relying on Naruto again like in Part 1 didn't do anything to help in that regard.
** Obito Uchiha. Originally he was an EnsembleDarkhorse, beloved for being the only good Uchiha; when he is revealed to be Tobi, who wanted to ''kill a baby'', killed his sensei and his sensei's wife, treated the Tailed Beasts like nothing, caused the worst part of the Blood Mist era in Kirigakure, AND is behind the Uchiha Massacre, its easy to hate him. But his ''entire'' motivation (despite him denying it) is that Rin died at Kakashi's hands (completely disregarding the fact that said death was a HeroicSacrifice; Kakashi had intended every bit to keep his promise to his dying friend). He wants to mind wipe the entire world for his own personal fantasy. He is also despised for being perceived as a sympathetic character all because Rin is killed by the Mist village as well as being EasilyForgiven by his former comrades (Including Rin, Kakashi and even Naruto) and his own mentor despite all the heinous acts he has personally done against them. His [[KarmaHoudini unpunished villainy]] as well as a poorly done [[RedemptionEqualsDeath selfish sacrifice]] made fans hate him even more.
** The real Madara Uchiha is also viewed this way by some, even by those who once [[EvilIsCool considered him cool]], due to how [[GodModeSue ridiculously overpowered he's become over the series]] (WordOfGod even acknowledges that he made the character too powerful) and the escalation of his power through one DiabolusExMachina after another. Other reasons for his scrappydom include his [[EvilIsPetty rather petty motives]], such as being AlwaysSecondBest to Hashirama Senju.
** Karin is also hated for due to being characterized as only being obsessed with Sasuke, essentially being a rip-off of part 1 Sakura. While initially RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap after being stabbed by Sasuke just to kill Danzo [[UngratefulBastard despite healing him just now]], after she reverts back to being obsessed and [[EasilyForgiven quickly forgived]] Sasuke, she becomes TheScrappy again to the point that [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic fans hardly reacted when she was in tears over the fact that Sasuke is stabbed by Madara]].
** In a strange twist (both in and out of the story), [[spoiler:Kaguya Ootsutsuki, the EvilMatriarch of the ''Naruto'' universe]] has joined the series' ever growing scrappydom right after her [[spoiler:reincarnation]]. Though her character isn't in any way fleshed out for people to love or hate her based on it, she's already despised for [[spoiler:being even more overpowered than Madara (such that Naruto and Sasuke claim her chakra is far greater than that of the Ten Tails), shifting the storyline unnecessarily to a new villain arc and making the already horrendously convoluted plot even more so. Add to the list, her resealing about only 30 chapters after her first mention, meaning she never gets any characterization beyond her lust for power and contributes essentially nothing to the story aside from extending its length and killing off Obito, meaning some will hate her due to her sheer pointlessness.]]
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': While the main characters are all [[BaseBreaker very divisive]], some characters are flat-out Scrappies:
** Pen-Pen as some consider such a purely implausible and "cartoon" character out of place in the middle of a dramatic and dark series.
** Ritsuko Akagi gets flak for obsessing over Gendo Ikari and [[spoiler:destroying anything involving Rei (the cloning aquarium, the Dummy Plug) out of a combination of insanity and envy, while the current Rei dies defeating one of the Angels, no less.]]
** For people who sympathize with Shinji, Gendo makes this list for being the cause of Shinji's emotional problems.
* From ''Nyatto!'', [[SchoolgirlLesbian Anzu]]. The general agreement among the readers is that the [[JumpTheShark shark was jumped]] with her introduction, which draws many complaints the manga taking a turn from [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot an unique story of a guy growing a relationship with his long-time pet kitty turned into a prissy catgirl that wants to turn him into her butler,]] to your standard harem series where the main character is always a ButtMonkey, as well Anzu often beating up, berating and punishing Shigeru for his perverted antics...[[{{Hypocrite}} when she is as much of a pervert as he is]] and yet [[DoubleStandard Anzu always gets away with her own antics.]]
* ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'':
** Since Pop wasn't given much of a role in the first place and was mostly a BrattyHalfPint AnnoyingYoungerSibling for almost two seasons, she tends to be disliked by the fanbase. Most of her detractors claim that her presence in the story was unnecessary, and her personality pre-CharacterDevelopment didn't help either.
** Hana is also considered one of the least favorites of the fan community due to her qualities of being the CanonSue (read: unrealistically perfect), a {{Dojikko}} (read: causes trouble), and somewhat of a BrattyHalfPint when she gets upset (read: causes more trouble).
** Out of all the classmates, Tamaki is probably liked the least. She brags about how her father never punishes her as opposed to the other girls in her class and thinks that punishing your child is "barbaric". She makes fun of Momoko and Hana during their respective first days of school, Momoko for technically being a foreigner and Hana for acting like a toddler.
** Other than Tamaki, some of the male classmates were scrappies for one at least one episode. Notably the SOS Trio for teasing Naomi, and for the idiotic strategy they used to "beat" Mutsumi in a wrestling match.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Usopp tends to be less well-liked than the other Straw Hats, possibly because he's not as attractive and tends to be quite cowardly. In the Water 7 arc, when he, [[spoiler:after learning the Going Merry was beyond repair and Luffy decided to get a new ship, [[RageQuit left the crew]] and challenged Luffy to a duel over the ship]], most fans agreed that he was in the wrong, and a fair portion believed that the incident was the final proof that he was more trouble than he was worth. However, said arc also resulted in him disguising as [[TookALevelInBadass S]][[CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown o]][[ImprobableAimingSkills g]][[BigDamnHeroes e]][[LetsGetDangerous k]][[PaperThinDisguise i]][[{{Determinator}} n]][[BadassCape g]] and admitting that he was wrong in the end, which may have [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap made up for it]] with some fans.
** There's also Spandam, but that's [[SmugSnake an]] [[DirtyCoward intentional]] [[JerkAss case]]. Surprisingly, he's [[AmericansHateTingle somewhat more popular in Japan,]] once making it on a top 30 characters poll.
** Princess Shirahoshi can be disliked by many fans, due to her constant crying and whiny personality.
** The most hated character in the manga, however, is most likely - [[WordOfGod as admitted by Oda himself]] - Absalom, TheDragon in the Thriller Bark arc. This is probably due in the most part to his perverted nature, as unlike other perverted characters like the [[ChivalrousPervert heroic]] Sanji and Brook, Absalom's behavior is actually ''not'' PlayedForLaughs, giving off a [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty dangerous and disturbing]] impression.
* ''VisualNovel/OokamiKakushi'':
** Isuzu too to an extent--she didn't get as ''much'' hatred as Hiroshi (and some of it lightened up when she was temporarily PutOnABus), but not everyone found her [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy, stalker-ish habits]] amusing.
* OtogiJuushiAkazukin: Viewers almost unanimously hate [[TheChick Ringo]]. Her [[ClingyJealousGirl negative traits]] are even pointed out in the show, when her friends in her own world note how [[TsunDere harsh she is toward her friends]]. When everyone else begins to trust [[TheWoobie Gretel]], Ringo is, not surprisingly the only one against it, angrily at that. One episode even goes out of it's way to make her see that she's [[TheLoad dead weight]]. Her aggressive personality isn't too surprising, considering she's voiced by RieKugimiya.
* OtogiZoshi: Kintarou looks like an example of the BrattyHalfPint variety. Most of the characters are fairly serious, and then you throw in an obnoxious, super-strong kid.
* ''Manga/PandoraHearts'': Jack Vessalius. When he first appeared, he was a mysterious, kind benefactor who wished to protect the amnesiac girl. Now, when it is quite likely that he has been [[spoiler:the cause of the tragedy of Sablier and the true evil villain all along who manipulated everyone else all along.]] More than likely, many people will not love him anymore.
** Vincent Nightray, for being a selfish, abusive sociopath who uses the hero's little sister's feelings for him to his advantage, and manipulates everyone. [[spoiler:He also cut out a cat's eyes with scissors and mocked Alice simply out of jealousy.]]
* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'':
** Main character Ryoma Echizen himself, for being a borderline MartyStu and behaving like a jerk (especially toward rival and [[EnsembleDarkhorse unexpected fan favorite]] Keigo Atobe who, according to his fangirls, can absolutely do NO wrong, ala JerkSue).
** Tomoka Osakada, for being a loud [[{{Tsundere}} self-appointed Echizen fangirl]] who can sometimes be [[BrattyHalfPint pushy, airheaded and bitchy]].
** [[ShrinkingViolet Sakuno Ryuzaki]], for being a [[{{Dojikko}} klutz]] and a bit of an ExtremeDoormat in the anime, though her less klutzy manga self is [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap better regarded]].
** Satoshi Horio, for being a loudmouthed NonActionGuy who brags and talks yet accomplishes nothing and is the local ChewToy,
** Seiichi Yukimura, for being a girly-looking mixture of IllGirl and ManipulativeBastard who will do [[BrokenAesop almost]] ''[[KnightTemplar anything]]'' [[JerkJock to let his team win]] and [[DieForOurShip gets in betwen Atobe and Sanada]], and;
** [[ButNotTooForeign Jackal Kuwahara]], for being the only Rikkai guy [[BadassNormal who plays]] ''[[BadassNormal normal]]'' [[BadassNormal tennis]] and stealing what rabid fangirls perceived as Hiroshi Yagyuu's designated place in the finals.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Hitomi, an otherwise minor character, is in the scrappy heap for [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom one little move that set a chain reaction in motion]]. To be more specific, she [[spoiler:tells Sayaka that she has 24 hours to confess to Kyosuke, the boy they both like, before she does it]]. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Sayaka has recently learned about the true nature of magical girls and thus no longer considers herself human. She thus cannot bring herself to do it and falls into despair knowing that Hitomi will move in to claim Kyosuke, leading her closer to becoming a witch]]. The fact that [[LockedOutOfTheLoop Hitomi is not aware of what is going on]], asking Madoka once but not getting an answer, and later [[spoiler:feels responsible for Sayaka's death]] is not mentioned.
** Kyosuke, Sayaka's love interest, also gets this treatment for the same reasons as Hitomi - only worse. Hitomi received a goodly amount of characterization before the event, but Kyousuke's character [[FlatCharacter began and ended]] at 'violinist who got hurt and is now sad about it,' which makes it easier to justify his behavior as [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation genuine apathy or malice]] rather than mere absentmindedness. He's also TheOneGuy in a series that runs on LesYay, which gets him [[DieForOurShip flak]] from the shippers as well; the politer FanFics either ignore him or [[ShipMates quarantine him with Hitomi]] as soon as possible so they can get to the [[SchoolgirlLesbians Kyouko/Sayaka]] bits. [[spoiler:[[KickTheDog More justification for his Scrappy status]] came in the tie-in video game, in which he, in quick succession, refers to Sayaka as a "disgusting monster" and reaffirms his love for Hitomi.]] Even GenUrobuchi got in on it, claiming that if they ever did get together, Kyousuke would most likely stand Sayaka up at dates to practice his violin. People will quote [[MemeticMutation Hitomi's lines]] or defend [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Kyubey's philosophy]], but the most positive thing most fans will say for Kyousuke is, "Well, he's not THAT bad."
** Kyubey himself is almost universally reviled for his [[spoiler:LackOfEmpathy and {{manipulative|Bastard}}ness, for being responsible for pretty much everything bad that happens in the anime, and for being a KarmaHoudini.]] The fact that he is [[spoiler:a WellIntentionedExtremist whose goal is to save the universe from heat death]] does not redeem him in the eyes of the fandom. In a poll of "Most Unforgivable Anime Characters", Kyubey took first place!
*** [[spoiler:As of ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'' things are not looking good for him either, as his race attempted to control Madoka and reintroduce the [[FateWorseThanDeath Witch System]] for being more efficient than the one currently in place thanks to Madoka's efforts. This takes away the [[IDidWhatIHadToDo sole justification]] he had in the eyes of some fans. On the bright side, Kyubey haters were pleasantly surprised to find out he is no longer a KarmaHoudini.]]
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Happosai. A large number of fans have a serious dislike for him, some even going so far as to avoid watching episodes/reading chapters in which he plays a prominent role. The reason generally stems from the fact he is the MiniatureSeniorCitizens equivalent of a DirtyOldMan and a PantyThief, while also being an {{evil|Mentor}} FairWeatherMentor OldMaster, notable as being childish, selfish and immature, even compared to [[ComedicSociopathy everyone else]] in the {{s|adistShow}}eries. Generally, if Happosai shows up, he's going to either be groping and harrassing every female (born or [[GenderBender made]]) in sight, causing trouble because he's a {{Jerkass}}, trying to get revenge on Ranma for interfering with him being a nuisance, or some combination of the aforementioned. It certainly doesn't help matters that most episodes with Happosai end up as a KarmaHoudini for him. Most of the terrible things he does either goes unpunished because Genma and Soun are too cowardly to stand up to him without Ranma, or ''Ranma'' gets the blame when it's more obviously Happosai's fault. Not to mention that Happosai is one of, if not the definite cause of the series having a BittersweetEnding. [[spoiler:Mistaking the Jusenkyo water sent to the Saotome household for sake, and drinking it all up before any of the other characters can use it to cure their respective curses]].
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'':
** Nanami Kiryuu is an AlphaBitch, a ClingyJealousGirl and a prominent face in the series' filler episodes, which causes many viewers to [[FanDumb write her off]] as either an obnoxious nuisance or pointless comic relief. While it's been alleged that members of staff disliked her (supposedly the reason she only got a very limited role in TheMovie, and as a cow at that) director KunihikoIkuhara is quite fond of her; apparently, she was modeled after a girl he liked when he was younger, but who never gave him the time of day. She wasn't integral to the movie plot, and Chiho Saitou was in charge of the manga (where she only appears in a single photograph) hence the discrepancy in her appearances between each adaptation. However, Nanami does become RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap for many fans once episodes 31 and 32 roll around, in which she becomes [[JerkassWoobie just too pitiful to hate.]]
* ''{{Robotech}}'' and ''SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' includes:
** Lin Minmei is widely despised, especially among haters of [[IdolSinger princess-like pop divas]] and [[DieForOurShip rabid Misa/Hikaru fans]]. A lot of this actually comes from the ''Robotech'' side of the fandom, where not only was Minmei's portrayal less moe and more annoying to Western sensibilities, but her voice actress... was perhaps not the best vocalist that could have been chosen for the role. When ''Macross'' saw an English-dubbed rerelease (as ''Macross'', not as ''Robotech''), the producers attempted to curb the hatred by hiring Mari Iijima, Minmei's original actress, for the role. This fixed the issues with her singing, but it also meant she was the only character who spoke with a heavy Japanese accent out of the cast.
** One name: Lynn Kaifun. Whereas Minmay's actions can be seen as those of a confused, emotionally needy NaiveEverygirl attempting to survive in a ruthless world of adults, Kaifun comes off as less sympathetic and much more of a straight-up, abusive JerkAss. Not to mention that he kept railing on the military for being warlike murderers. [[TooDumbToLive While giant aliens are actively trying to kill the lot of them]]. He gets even worse in the final arc of ''Macross'', when the Earth is trying to rebuild after being decimated, turning into a spiteful drunk who emotionally (and sometimes physically) abuses Minmei because she isn't in too big of a demand (and can only pay in paultry gifts for her singing), and just leaves without any real retribution for ''any'' of his crap. Also for a self-proclaimed pacifist, he sure does know how to do spinkicks, something lampshaded in the Robotech novel adaptations. Also, he was trying to get together with Minmei... his cousin. For many, this was quite squick-worthy.
* ''RoninWarriors'': Depending on which segment of the fandom you ask, this role could be taken on by any combination of [[TeamMom Natsuti/Mia]], [[BrattyHalfPint Jun/Yulie]], Lady Kayura or Suzunagi from the OAV.
* ''RozenMaiden'': Hinaichigo and Kanaria are easily the two least popular of the dolls, especially because they're seen as "less mature" than the others. Still, [[AlasPoorScrappy it's kinda sad]] [[spoiler:watching Hina slowly wind down to her inevitable death]]. The biggest reason for the hate toward Kanaria is the fact that [[spoiler: EnsembleDarkhorse Suiseiseki performs a HeroicSacrifice to let her escape, which she responds to by foolishly going back and getting killed like an idiot anyway, rendering her death pointless.]]
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'':
** Chibi-Usa, especially [[AmericansHateTingle her English dub counterpart, Rini]]. While she was designed to have ''some'' [[BrattyHalfPint intentionally annoying qualities]], she was also shown to be a genuinely scared little girl away from home ''and'' caught in a convoluted plot of people trying to control or even kill her. The real trouble, however, started as she began to get much more screen time in the fourth season. Since [[SeasonalRot that season]] was also associated with strange [[MoodWhiplash mood shifts]] and an extensive {{retool}}ing of the original plot and a subsequent dip in the ratings, fans usually associate her with or even blame her for it. Part of the problem were the changes made in the Creator/DiC dub in the second season. Chibi-Usa was frequently punished in the Japanese version for being bratty. But since they couldn't show the heroine of the series spanking the bratty kid on American TV, Rini turned out to be far more of a KarmaHoudini. She became much more tolerable in seasons 3 and 4, but it would be years before Americans even got the last third of season 2. The damage was done.
** One of her English voice actresses, StephanieBeard, made a song (parodying {{Eminem}}'s ''The Real Slim Shady'') that has an interesting parallel to Chibi-Usa. Although it was meant to describe her radio show persona, the lyrics contain similarities to Chibi-Usa's character, such as the mentioning of "copycats" (Usagi), and having an arrogant and semi-bratty personality.
* ''SaintSeiya'':
** Seiya. HotBlooded, {{Determinator}} and IdiotHero can only be tolerated to a certain point, and Seiya unfortunately goes well past ''that point''. Depends on the locality the show is airing in, but a large part of the western fanbase hate him.
** Some parts of the fandom just can't stand Shun. Let's see, he's consideried the weakest of the team (let's ignore the whole "new body of Hades" thing), most of his attacks are defensive, and he ''always'' needs his big brother Ikki to save him. And while his little moment with Hyouga in the House of Libra created a legion of [[YaoiFangirl YaoiFangirls]], it definitely didn't sit well with the straight male demographic. It's worth noting that, nevertheless, he's [[AmericansHateTingle pretty popular in Japan]].
** The Steel Saints. MerchandiseDriven [[KidAppealCharacter Kid Appeal Characters]] who [[BigDamnHeroes saved the main characters several times]] in the anime [[CanonForeigner despite it never happening in the manga]]. Need we say more?
* ''Manga/{{Saki}}''
** Teru Miyanaga, the eponymous main character's [[AloofBigSister older sister]], attracted a fairly sizable hatedom after it's revealed that she has, when asked, refused to admit that she has a sister, when Saki had seemingly done nothing to deserve this. Quite a bit of the fandom wants Teru to get her comeuppance, rather than reconcile with Saki, even though the narrative remains sympathetic to Saki's goal.
* ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'': Kyoko is almost always shown in a negative light in the series' narrative, verbally abusing or manipulating Rei, resulting in the audience generally regarding her with dislike, despite her sympathetic backstory.
* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'':
** Makoto Itou, who was very likely intended to be a target of hate by his creators, due to being [[{{Jerkass}} utterly reprehensible]] in addition to [[WhatAnIdiot being a gigantic idiot]].
** This was [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap reversed]] in the manga version: Makoto is ''still'' a big moron, but at least there he does care for the girls. Sekai, who is now a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bitch]], replaces Makoto in the Scrappy Heap.
* ''SekaiIchiHatsukoi'':
** Chiaki is probably the most hated character given his [[WhatAnIdiot stupidity]] that can only go so far in a yaoi series, to his [[InnocentlyInsensitive insensitive]] nature (tell your best friend whose [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend obliviously in love with you]] to go hook up with someone else after you already pissed him off with lying to him (which by the way is implied to be Yanase's BerserkButton as well as breaking your promise to hang out with him) and finally being a huge brat about everything despite being at least 29. Sure he has his {{Woobie}} moments especially in the novel [[spoiler:where he was [[RapeasDrama brutally raped]] by his other best friend Hatori]] but that goes out the window when 1. He forgives said friend in an unrealistic fashion and 2. TookALevelInJerkass as a result of going out with him despite what Hatori done to him. So with each episode, you want to strangle Chiaki and it reaches its climax in the last episode concerning him where [[spoiler:he rejects Yanase one last time and this time, he {{break|TheCutie}}s [[HeroicBSOD down]] {{cry|Cute}}ing because Chiaki refuses to take him seriously.]] And what does he tell Yanase despite this? [[spoiler:I'll call you back later. You're my ''friend'' after all.]] WHAT THE HELL CHIAKI?! Alas, it will be really hard to find someone who likes Chiaki after that episode.
** Chiaki's boyfriend [[{{Yandere}} Hatori]] isn't any better. Despite having fans (who look past his faults and puts it straight into the DracoInLeatherPants territory), his actions in the series has turned a lot of people off and made people call him despicable human being. What did he do? Mentioned above he crossed the MoralEventHorizon for a lot of people when he [[spoiler:[[RapeAsDrama brutally raped]] Chiaki all because he thought Yanase was going to win in the battle of love.]] The worse part is he's a KarmaHoudini and gets to hook up with Chiaki. But it doesn't end there though. Hatori is possessive to the point that he tries to get Chiaki to cut ties with Yanase and their constant fighting HAS caused a rift between Chiaki and Yanase as shown in later episodes. There whole relationship is a MasochismTango. The part that made people seal the deal was the same episode that made people hate Chiaki [[WhamEpisode episode 16]] where he apparently cheats on Chiaki with his ex-girlfriend (he didn't but that doesn't change the fact that he let her touch his hair in an affectionate manner) and because he met with her though, he cancelled the date that Chiaki was looking forward to because it was the last time the movie he wanted to watch was airing in theaters. However, the minute he finds out that Chiaki went over to Yanase's place, it is implied that he threatened over the phone and then [[spoiler:broke into Yanase's house just to punch him in the face. Mind you, Yanase didn't fight back because he {{br|eakTheCutie}}oke from Chiaki's confession and Hatori made it worse.]] Again, Hatori is a KarmaHoudini despite his KickThemWhileTheyAreDown moment and is the only one who is really happy at the end of the episode.
* ''ShakuganNoShana'': Kazumi Yoshida. Aside of the DieForOurShip and RealWomenNeverWearDresses factors, there's the fact that people think she's shallow, boring, clichéd schoolgirl-in-love-for-a-classmate, steals too much screentime for her little romantic-anime antiques, has a formidable amount of CommonMarySueTraits and, for the final blow, her impact to the overall plot is almost null. A quick Google search turns up comments on her such as "The single greatest flaw with this series is that she isn't dead yet."
* ''Manga/ShamanKing'':
** [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Pirika]], [[ShrinkingViolet Tamao]] and [[UnfortunateImplications Chocolove]]. They do all have a good number of fans too though (Pirika and Tamao usually for shipping reasons, and Chocolove because he can be pretty cool despite the racial stereotypes.)
** Lyserg and the rest of the X-laws (mostly Marco though out of them, but they all are still generally not liked AT ALL) are not very popular with the Shaman King fans, because they come off as [[HolierThanThou self-righteous]] and {{Hypocrite}}s... then there is the fact that they [[MoralEventHorizon kill people]] [[DisproportionateRetribution they deem evil]]-[[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath rather viciously]]. Marco and Lyserg are the most hated out of all of them. Lyserg for whining all the time about how he's gonna get revenge for Hao killing his parents, then leaving Yoh and Co. for the X-laws, and continuing from there after acting like a preachy brainwashed, hypocritical idiot. Marco for being a bigoted, hypocritical ass who looked down on everyone not in the X-laws. Though this is mostly how it was in the anime, and where the hatred comes from. The X-laws and Lyserg show their character development much sooner in the manga than in the anime, therefore they grew better on the fandom, in the anime however, this character development only came near the last few episodes.
* ''{{Slayers}}'':
** Amelia was definitely this for a while in the western fandom. In her first few episodes in the anime, she was a bratty little kid whose naivete, klutziness, and obsession with justice were {{flanderiz|ation}}ed to the point where it pushed her into TooDumbToLive territory. Her first English voice actress made her seem even more annoying. Then the dub went on a year-and-a-half long hiatus, allowing that impression of Amelia to sink in with the fans. When the came back, Amelia was given a better voice actress (Veronica Taylor), and with time, she became more mature and better able to pull her weight in the group. However, the change was gradual and subtle enough that it couldn't overcome everyone's first impression of her, so some fans still hated her. The passage of time (several years), the shrinking of the fanbase (it's smaller, but also a good deal saner than it once was), and the translation of some of the original novels into English (Amelia's ''much'' more mature, has a good deal more awesome moments, and her idealism much less [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerated]]) has [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap softened]] fan opinion towards her considerably.
** Sylphiel the shrine maiden was also this [[AmericansHateTingle for the western fandom]], and still is to an extent, because of her status as a [[TheIngenue demure and gentle]], shrine maiden with poor combat skills (being restricted to TheMedic for the most part) in a show filled with [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses outspoken, strong females]]. She is also in love with [[IdiotHero Gourry]], who in turn starts falling for Lina.
** By contrast, while the anime-exclusive Filia is [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff loved by Western fans]], she only has a modest following in Japan. Meanwhile, the light novel writer, who was involved with the anime production ''Slayers TRY'' (which, mind, deviated completely from the original light novel series), hates ''all'' of the characters from that season, particularly Filia. The light novel illustrator, to this point, has only made ''one'' art of any anime exclusive characters (it's of Filia embracing Valgaav, and they're in the back of a group shot... cue DieForOurShip for Fillia/Xellos fans).
** From the fourth/fifth anime seasons is Pokota, the BrattyHalfPint prince who is almost as powerful as Lina yet remains rather bullheaded until the final few episodes. Even compared to the earlier secondary protagonists, even Sylphiel, he's either ignored or disliked.
* Most who watched ''Anime/SonicX'' did not like Chris Thorndyke. His detractors argue that he's got lots of money and friends, but constantly relies on acting like the LonelyRichKid because he'd rather hang out with Sonic and his anthro brigade. Many fans complained that he (Chris) stole the sidekick role from Tails--which he pretty much did. Fans were especially furious when he stole Amy's important role in the ''Sonic Adventure 2'' arc. [[SpotlightStealingSquad He had more overall screen time than all of the other characters—more than even Sonic himself]].
* ''SugarSugarRune'': Waffle. The title of episode 30, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "The Annoying Witch Waffle Makes her Appearance"]], is already a bad sign, and things just go downhill from there. She's a BrattyHalfPint with a one-note personality (her obsession with Houx), and is [[TheMillstone always either getting into trouble herself or causing trouble for the main characters.]] Worse yet, she's an anime-original character. So fans know that any episode that features her prominently is guaranteed to be {{Filler}} that will not advance the main storyline.
* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Sugou, the BigBad of the ALO arc, is considered one of the most hated villains of recent anime history. Although he was [[spoiler: responsible for the imprisonment of 300 players after the SAO incident, one of which included the female protagonist of the story, it was ultimately his molestation/attempted rape on said female lead in front of [[TheHero Kirito]] that pushed him into scrappydom.]] [[ReplacementScrappy He also lacks much of]] [[EvilIsCool Kayaba's charms.]]
* ''Anime/TamakoMarket'' has Dera, the animal mascot comic relief. He's contributed to many a viewer dropping the show with his antics.
* ''TenchiMuyo''.
** Mihoshi is so ditzy that it comes off as annoying, you can tolerate in her first appearances as she is a GeniusDitz who is still capable of being somewhat BadAss; however after CharacterizationMarchesOn, she becomes a whiny, hypocritically optimistic, and constantly accident prone WomanChild who drives her [[OnlySaneMan partner]] Kiyone over the brink of sanity with her incompetence for very understandable reasons, being that she's responsible for half of the stuff in the Universe series. [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot And she ruined the possibility in one episode of a clone of Washu being either more evil or one trying to replace the original with having it have her personality]]. As of the third OVA, however, her sudden [[TookALevelInDumbass drop in intelligence]] [[CerebusRetcon was revealed to be the result]] of a [[NoodleIncident romance that ended horribly for her]] in the interim period. Nonetheless, the damage had already been done to her reputation amongst fans.
** Possibly the most widely hated character is Noike, who is seen as a ReplacementScrappy for Kiyone from Universe.
** Sakuya from ''Anime/TenchiInTokyo'' gets a lot of flack for being a ReplacementLoveInterest MarySue[[spoiler:, despite being part of Yugi's EvilPlan]], due to a number of things, mostly the fact that many people preferred the established "pairings".
* ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'':
** Rossiu. It really says something about his vastly disliked nature that a rioting crowdgoer, [[OneSceneWonder only known for throwing a rock at Rossiu's head]], actually has a minor fandom because of this very act. A guy who only has about five to ten seconds of screentime has ''fans'' for simply throwing a rock at the most disliked character in the anime. Also, [[spoiler:almost getting Simon executed?]] Not cool. Sure there were serious circumstances behind the decision but at least ''try'' to save [[spoiler:the guy who all but saved the human race]]. Plus, his actions betrayed everything the Gurren-dan stands for. He suffers to an extent from being in the wrong show. His actions would be more understandable in a more serious anime, but [[WrongGenreSavvy he fails to realise he's in a reconstruction of the mecha genre.]]
** Out of the villains, the [[spoiler:[[BigBad Anti-Spiral]]]] has come under fire. For one thing, [[EvilIsCool they lack the coolness factor]] of previous villains like [[BadAss Lordgenome]] and [[NobleDemon Viral]]. For another, they're an example of Knight Templar that's [[MoralEventHorizon too far gone]]. Oh, and they also made a living hell of [[spoiler:[[TheWoobie Nia's]] last few days by [[GrandTheftMe using her as their messenger]], then [[DamselInDistress taking her to their home planet]] when she snapped out of the mind control, and ended up being the ones responsible for [[KillTheCutie her death]]]] by [[MindRape Mind Raping]]/[[ColdBloodedTorture torturing]] and (in [[TheMovie LagannHen]], [[spoiler:[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything straddling her naked body]] while holding her down with tentacles]]. Some fans find them completely repugnant, and their supposed [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremism]] completely and totally unjustifiable.
* ''TokyoMajin'': Aoi Misato. It's bad enough she is totally useless, and doesn't really help the other main characters. However, she [[DistressBall constantly runs into danger trying to fight despite having no offensive powers and her friends telling to stay away]]. It gets worse when the characters begin to claim Aoi as courageous, despite her not really showing this trait. Also, Aoi wants to [[StupidGood save everyone, including the enemies who have committed mass murder]]. Even worse, [[spoiler:Aoi wanted to save the main villain (a person who committed a lot of murders), claiming "he didn't hurt anyone."]]
* ''TokyoMewMew'':
** Masaya, Ichigo's love interest, is a [[DieForOurShip victim of crazy shippers]], but a generally NiceGuy all around.
** Berry, on the other hand, is a MarySue who [[CreatorsPet completely stole]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad the spotlight]] from ''all'' of the main characters in the ''A La Mode'' manga. (Unsurprisingly, a lot of fans [[Discontinuity/{{Anime}} want to forget that ever happened]], which is easy because Reiko Yoshida, the author, was not involved with ''A La Mode'' anyway.)
* The official manga of the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series, ''Silent Sinner in Blue'', introduced two Scrappy characters Watatsuki no Yorihime and Watatsuki no Toyohime. The fandom had been writing based on characterization that [[HiddenElfVillage Lunarians]], despite their antediluvian history and {{Magitek}} prowess, were generally some of the worst monsters in a series that makes other man-eating monsters affable; fans still didn't expect to find them so [[CantArgueWithElves insufferably]] [[VillainSue offensive]]. They didn't even win sympathy points when [[spoiler:it was revealed [[GambitPileup they were the fools buried at the bottom of everyone else's schemes.]]]]
* ''Anime/TransformersArmada'': The three children due to being a trio of [[CreatorsPet creator's pets]]. Alexis is somewhat less hated due to her role in Starscream's character arc but the others are largely despised.
** Never mind the three main kids, there's the two bullies Billy and Fred -- the latter especially for his constant whining, obsession with eating, and tendency to ruin otherwise well set-up scenes. In fact, the writers themselves wanted to get rid of them... they just never found the right time to do so.
** Hot Shot is one of the biggest Scrappies of the franchise, although only partly thanks to his character -- most people hate him for his design and his toys as well.
* ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'':
** Kicker. He's an annoying JerkSue who hates Transformers for stupid reasons, constantly complains, abuses the shit out of poor Ironhide, is often TheLoad for the Autobots, and is treated like [[CreatorsPet God's gift to]] [[CharacterShilling the universe]]. It doesn't help that he's [[KarmaHoudini never called out on his actions]].
** Creator/BradSwaile, who provided the English dub voice for Kicker, has gone on record saying that [[OldShame he felt bad about playing him]] after he gained mainstream success with ''Manga/DeathNote.''
** Most fans were on the fence about Cyclonus, an incompetent, lazy Decepticon with an annoying voice, but upon his reformatting into Snow Cat, he amassed an entire hatedom due to his constant, unneeded, nerve-grating yodeling.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Ciel garners a lot of hatred, much to the frustration of her fanbase. Commonly listed reasons include her combative nature and simply not being as pretty or interesting as the other heroines. Some of this may be due to her being in direct competition with fan favorite Arcueid Brunestud throughout her route (some options require you to directly abandon Arcueid in favor of Ciel; Ciel also picks fights with her), though some Ciel haters make a point to mention that they just avoided her route entirely. Her lack of popularity has become a running joke in pseudo-sequels and doujinshi. [[MemeticMutation It's shit, right?]]
* ''UtaNoPrinceSama'': Haruka for being a PuritySue and not being as interesting as her male co-stars.
** Cecil is hated by both the anime and game fandoms for his MartyStu-ness and how out-of-place he feels.
* ''WaGaNaWaUmishi'': Rintarou. Hated from day one, even within the manga, he has scarcely gotten any better.
* ''Manga/WanderingSon'':
** Fumiya gets a lot of hate from fans. He likes Chiba, which is already a bad part since Chiba is popular with shippers. He has a manipulative streak, and he's a liar. Then he [[spoiler:started ''dating'' Chiba, which hasn't sat well with a majority of the fandom since it seems like an AssPull]]
** Momoko is fairly disliked by a majority of the fandom. She [[FlatCharacter only exists]] to be clingy toward Chizuru, and to get on characters bad sides. Unlike most other characters in the series, she has no HiddenDepths, despite having been in the manga for several years.
* Yoriko from ''Manga/YoureUnderArrest''. She comes off as a whiny, scaredy-cat [[TheLoad load]] who does more trouble then good. What's bugs the fanbase more is that she gets one or two episodes a season all about her, compared to other characters like Aoi.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'':
** Anzu/Téa for either her excessive, condescending friendship speeches/lectures that bring the episode to a grinding halt every time, or for [[DieForOurShip getting in the way of Yugi/Yami]]. It should be noted that the friendship obsession was a dub-addition -- in the original Japanese show, Anzu was still a preppy cheerleader, but was much less preachy than the dub made her and didn't go into friendship speeches/lectures every episode; male characters like Yugi and Joey actually went on about friendship more. Still Scrappy material, but to a lesser degree.
** There is also Mokuba, who is just a plot device to keep Kaiba involved in the plot, and [[DamselScrappy constantly getting into trouble.]]
** Rebecca in the first season. She acts rude when she demanded that Yugi's grandfather should give her the Blue-Eyes White Dragon card that Kaiba tore up in the first episode, whines whenever Yugi got the upper-hand in their duel, and [[spoiler:accuses Grandpa of tearing up the card after Yugi chose to throw in the towel.]] [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap She becomes more likeable, though,]] after having grown up in the interim between later seasons and [[TheBusCameBack returning to the show.]]
* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'':
** Crow for initially being a huge [[SpotlightStealingSquad screentime-sink]] despite having been introduced much later than all of the central characters. Solidified when [[spoiler:he became a Signer at the end of the second season, despite not owning a dragon, one of the central qualifications for Signer-dom.]]. On the later episodes, [[spoiler:he does get a dragon, but it looks nothing like the Fifth Dragon seen in flashbacks during the first season, which begs the question "WTF?"]]
*** Fans initially didn't like Crow for his ability to defeat Bommer, despite not being a Signer, something that was believed impossible; completely ignoring the fact that this claim was made by Rex Godwin, the BigBad of the series. ([[VillainsNeverLie Maybe it made sense for the characters to trust his word]], but honestly, [[FanDumb the fans?]]
** Aki too. Since the two characters are largely competing for the same "position", there's [[BaseBreaker two major groups of opinions on the matter]]: group 1, consisting of people who love Aki and hate Crow and group 2, consisting people who love Crow and hate Aki. Group 1 loves the {{Backstory}} of Aki and her CharacterDevelopment. Group 1, obviously, hates Crow for the reasons listed above, but also because he pushed Aki out of [[SpotlightStealingSquad spotlight]]. Group 2 hates Aki's {{Backstory}}, her {{Wangst}}, and didn't like the direction that her CharacterDevelopment took her. Group 2 doesn't mind Crow [[SpotlightStealingSquad stealing Aki's screentime]] because they hated her in the first place, and largely agree that the story was improved by having him instead of Aki. People in group 2 generally see Crow as a lovable LargeHam. Obviously this is a case of BrokenBase.
** The 5D's fans are pretty divided over who they hate more; Yusei comes under fire for being an InvincibleHero while almost everyone else is DemotedToExtra, Aki through {{Chickification}} and Rua's seen as an annoying kid who has no point in being around the main group. Hinted through preferences when it comes to {{s|eriousBusiness}}hipping, it looks like Mikage, Carly, [[AmericansHateTingle Divine]] and Sherry also fall into this by the first two [[ShipToShipCombat threatening who fans believe Jack should be with]], or with the latter pair, threatening the [[FanPreferredCouple sacred Yusei/Aki pairing]]. The only one fans CAN agree on hating as a whole is PluckyComicRelief OneShotCharacter, Leo (who ''did'' try to flirt with Aki).
* ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'': There's the manga-exclusive oneshot villain Captain Corn, mostly due to TheReveal of his true nature. He's an amusement park employee, so one would expect him to simply be a man in a giant ear of corn suit, right? [[spoiler:Nope. Turns out he's ''literally a giant ear of corn'', resulting from an experiment to bring him back from the dead that got contaminated with corn a la ''TheFly'']].
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': [[TheChick Keiko]] is disliked by many fans - [[DieForOurShip curiously enough]] most of them are YaoiFangirls or believe that RealWomenNeverWearDresses, funny that. In the manga, however, Keiko does have more of a personality and it isn't revolved around Yusuke's.
* ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'':
** The main female lead, Louise. Arguably one of the most short tempered {{tsundere}}s in existence, her constant abuse of Saito goes to truly ridiculous levels, even if he does have perverted moments at times that end up {{flanderized}} in the anime. The LightNovels, while having similar comedic undertones at first, paint Louise in a much more negative light as opposed to the anime. This may actually be the point, since the series is noted to be a deconstruction of what a relationship with a tsundere is actually like. She does get called out on this by Saito later in the light novels, but many fans can't forgive her regardless.
** Saito gets a lot of hate from Louise fans as well due to his tendency to jump up and down on her {{Berserk Button}}s and apparently being too stupid to learn that doing so will get him blown up. While most of Louise's DomesticAbuse can't be justified, most of the worst examples of such are triggered by extreme perversion on Saito's behalf, such as the time in book two of the {{Light Novel}}s when [[WhatTheHellHero he tried to undress her in her sleep]].
* ''Anime/ZoidsChaoticCentury'': Thomas Shubaltz. He was kind of a jerk when he was first introduced, acting condecendingly towards Van and openly flirting with Fiona. Thomas later got a lot of character development that revealed him to be TheUnfavourite living in his [[TheAce older brother]]'s shadow, turning him into something of a woobie, and he reconciled with Van while getting over his crush on Fiona. Unfortunately his earlier behavior became a case of NeverLiveItDown, and he's often [[RonTheDeathEater villified]] by Van/Fiona shippers.
* ''Anime/ZoidsNewCentury''
** Harry Champ. Often thought of as an expy for Thomas, he suffered a similar backlash. Though the character is a well-meaning albeit egotistical goofball in canon, many fans find him annoying, and he's often despised by Bit/Leena shippers, who tend to subject him to RonTheDeathEater status in fanfic, taking him from "comically obsessed" to "evil stalker/rapist".
** Leena, who some consider even worse than Harry. She attacks Bit for the slightest infraction, [[DisproportionateRetribution from breaking his back for setting her up on a date with Harry]] to [[MoralEventHorizon attacking Bit with her Zoid for accidentally walking in on her in the shower]], and attacking her own teammates so that she is the sole winner of the fight.
* OsamuTezuka's ReusedCharacterDesign: Ham Egg. Whether [[Manga/AstroBoy he's a nasty circus manager]], [[KimbaTheWhiteLion a poacher who killed off the hero's parents]], [[{{Phoenix}} or an organ smuggler]], he's found to be a total SmugSnake by fans.
