The Scrappy / Animated Film


  • Despite being major characters who give directions to the main characters so they could return home, Marcel and Paddy from Alpha and Omega are not really that popular with the fandom. Go ahead and check out any fanbase on Deviantart or Youtube, you'll be surprised that those two have barely to any mention with the rest of the characters, a majority being wolf fans.
  • To many fans, Gurgi of The Black Cauldron is in the same boat as the gargoyles below, being the Plucky Comic Relief in a movie that's mostly held up for its darker aspects. The only problem: The gargoyles were at least kinda funny, while Gurgi kinda isn't. The voice doesn't help, either. About half the movie's fans thinking he's a Scrappy forgive him a little for his actions in the climax; the other half wish Taran had asked for the sword back. That being said, Gurgi is one of the Scrappies who are most subject to YMMV effects: at the movie's release, numerous critics said he was the most endearing character of the picture.
  • Buck, Chicken Little's father is considered to be one of the biggest complaint in the film due to him being an assholish and neglectful father to his own son, only supporting him when it is in his own best interests.
    • The townspeople also count for the same reasons, relentlessly hounding a child for an innocent mistake and going out of their way to reinforce the outcast he has become for it, only laying off when Chicken Little does something to boost their own selfish desires.
  • Though Delgo as a whole is a Scrappy Movie, the comic relief is generally the most hated character, being seen as an even more annoying Jar Jar. Allow YouTube to demonstrate.
  • Not many people still fully and non-ironically like the Minions from Despicable Me. Many have felt that their charm has worn off, and see them now as annoying and over-hyped bit characters. It really doesn't help that many people feel that they steal the spotlight from Gru and all the other main characters and even got their very own movie.
  • Eight Crazy Nights
    • Downplayed with Whitey. He is normally disliked for his annoying voice, but some people are able to get past that since he is such a Nice Guy. Even the people who don't like him find it easy to sympathize with him for what Davey puts him through.
    • Even with Whitey's flaws, he still comes off as likable in his own way due to his personality. However, the only character that audience truly hates is the main character, Davey. He has no redeeming qualities whatsoever and spends the majority of the movie terrorizing innocent citizens, beating down on poor Whitey, and just being a hugely unpleasant person in general. It doesn't help that he comes off as an Ungrateful Bastard since Whitey helped him get out of prison and allowed him to stay at his house after his trailer/home gets burnt down. He's meant to come off as sympathetic due to his backstory (that his parents died in a car crash on the night of his basketball game that he finally wins during the Hanukkah season), but his actions towards everyone makes him more as a completely unsympathetic bully and it makes it impossible to sympathize with him. Granted, he does become nicer towards the end, but he does not suffer any consequences for his horrible behavior and many critics have even pointed out that his actions is no way near representative on how people deal with the problems he went through.
  • While none of the characters in The Emoji Movie were really considered to be very interesting characters in the first place, the local comic relief character Hi-5 the High Five emoji is often singled out by critics as one of the worst characters in the movie, thanks to his character failing to actually be funny most of the time, adding nothing new to the table as far as comic relief characters go, and being completely useless most of the time. It doesn't help that the main characters go out of their way to rescue him when he faces certain doom, but not the more sympathetic character he was trapped with.
  • Sunflower from the centaur segment in Fantasia is hated by many, especially actual black people, due to her being a blatant blackface character, to the point that Disney has removed her from the movie starting in the 70's.
  • One would have a difficult time finding someone who likes Nozemkemph (The "wild breed" cat) from Felidae. Fans were not thrilled that Francis ended up choosing her as his mate and not Felicity, ignoring the fact that one, Felicity is murdered not too long after Francis meets her and, two, cats aren't known for romance. It doesn't help that Nozemkemph is never mentioned by name in the movie, only appears for a brief time to provide some exposistion, has sex with Francis, and then just leaves until showing up at the end of the film.
    • While several characters have their share of fans, including Bluebeard and Pascal AKA Claudandus, Kong's lackeys "Hermann" and "Hermann" (Or Herman 1 and Herman 2) are often overlooked by the fandom due to their lack of plot significance or any real distinctive personality.
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Nobody seems to like the gargoyles (unless you're a Jason Alexander fan or like comical characters), mostly due to their contribution of the Lighter and Softer tone of the film. And causing Mood Whiplash in almost every scene they appear in.
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame II
    • Sarousch in the DTV sequel is considered an obnoxious disgrace to the Disney Villains brand, especially by the (numerous) fans of Claude Frollo, the first film's Knight Templar villain.
  • Ice Age:
    • Downplayed with Sid, who is sometimes regarded as this by fans who aren't as fond of him as they are of Manny and Diego.
    • While Sid has his faults, he at least contributes to the plot and gives a few laughs. Crash and Eddie don't. Those Two Guys are annoying, and if you remove them from the third and fourth film, the story will be completely the same. Even in the second they are not very useful, as all they do is making Ellie, a mammoth, believe she's a possum (whether because they are stupid, or because they want to keep her as a sister, which is no better). They are reduced to background characters in the fourth film, and appear only to give some gags.
    • Shira from the fourth movie, much like Lola Bunny, is a boring "tough girl" clone of one of the main characters who only exists to serve as a love interest. Not only that, her pretty white fur and flawless face sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the more ugly pirates (which also makes it painfully obvious, even to the target audience, which one will pull a Heel–Face Turn), with the only part of her that's even remotely asymmetric being that she only has earrings on one ear.
    • Teenaged Peaches in the 4th movie also gets this for her plot of that movie being pretty much a cut and paste of a million teen sitcom cliches.
  • In the movie adaptation of The Lorax, Aloysius O'Hare is not well-liked, especially by fans of the book. This is mainly because he has no reason to exist other than to give us someone to root against and to make The Once-ler look better by comparison. He may have been better received if he had any charisma, but he doesn't. At all.
  • Mushu in Mulan II; all the traits that made him likable in the first film are gone in favor of this selfish, spiteful, and downright unpleasant character. He tries to break up Mulan and Shang because if they wed, it would rid him of his guardianship, and pretty much succeeds until his guilt gets the better of him, knowingly and happily committing said atrocities. Even though he does the right thing by the end, it's still not enough to salvage him as he still gets to keep his job due to a loophole, thus not only making that aesop he learned pointless, but also proved that there was no conflict to begin with and that all of Mushu's actions could have been easily avoided.
  • Norm of the North has the Lemmings, partly for being ripoffs of the Minions, partly for the unfunny Toilet Humour centered around them.
  • Eliot, the one-antlered mule deer from Open Season, is basically an Expy of Sid above. Not only is he extremely annoying and unintelligent, he was also responsible for coaxing Boog into a drunken eating binge throughout the town and sabotaging one of his nature shows by panicking the audience when they thought Boog was gorily dismembering the deer through a curtain covered Shadow Discretion Shot, leading his owner to tearfully relocate him in the middle of the forest hundreds of miles away. Even though he's been living in the forest his entire life, Eliot's attempts to get him back home results in complete disaster for Boog and those around him. Even the leader of Eliot's former herd, Ian, seemed to have the right idea to banish him despite being a Jerk Jock. Fortunately, unlike Sid, he undergoes a personality change in the second movie when trying to marry his sweetheart, Gizelle, becoming somewhat less annoying and more reliable, which may have rescued him for some.
  • Pocahontas:
  • In Don Bluth's Rock-A-Doodle, there's Edmund. Most people dislike him, probably due to his voice and lisp. Made even worse by the fact he's a friend of the lead character, Chanticleer.
  • Gary from the 2017 Netflix film Sahara is very hated for his lack of concern for his kidnapped sister, annoying Totally Radical talk, and deliberately being The Load to main protagonist Ajar. Ajar and his scorpion friend Pit even tell him how annoying he is right to his face, and to some, his Character Development at the end of the movie seemed to be too little, too late.
  • Snow White gets picked on by some people due to tasting like diabetes and being Too Dumb to Live. She's also frequently cited by anti-rotoscoping attitudes as a prominent example of the Uncanny Valley, compared to her costars who were much more cartoony and stole the movie for many people. Disney probably toned down the realism of future animated characters for that very reason.
  • All of the new characters created for Tom and Jerry: The Movie are scrappies, Pugsy, Frankie, Aunt Figg, Lickboot, Captain Kiddie, Squawk, Dr. Applecheeks... And especially Robyn Starling, the girl that Tom and Jerry help to find her lost father, and the one responsible for making Tom and Jerry stay Out of Focus and making the movie being about Tom & Jerry In-Name-Only. The few that aren't universally reviled (Lickboot, Applecheeks to name a few) are only liked because of YouTube Poop remixes and memes.
    • Pugsy deserves a special mention, as he is the one who got Tom and Jerry to talk and sing about how they are best friends, despite Tom and Jerry being, you know, mortal enemies... Sometimes. Really, Tom and Jerry's actual relationship is very difficult to define, with them being enemies one minute and allies the next, and their reason for battling likewise being very difficult to define. Still, Tom and Jerry aren't supposed to talk all that often.
  • Juniper from Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is an odd Gender Scrappy for being a Flat Character and evidence of the sexism in the movie.
    • Alex the Alexornis is a bizarre inversion of the trope. He is probably the only speaking character who is not universally seen as completely annoying, and it helps that he's voiced by John Leguizamo.
  • The Nicelanders (with the exception of Felix) of Wreck-It Ralph are hated by fans as well. Their only purpose in the game is to stand at their windows and scream for Felix to help them, occasionally providing pies as power-ups. Then they toss Ralph off a building. They also shun Ralph after the game is shut off at night, making him sleep in a brick pile in a dump, even though they are perfectly aware that it's his job to wreck their building. Innocent Bystanders they are not. Adding more to their flak is not inviting the guy to their 30th Anniversary. Seriously, guys. He may be a villain, but he's still technically your co-worker. That's just cold. Of them all, Gene is probably the most hated due to his obnoxious, condescending personality and attitude towards Ralph, which causes him to run off in the first place and then has the sheer audacity to put all the blame on Ralph when the big guy pulls off what they essentially bullied him into doing because of the trouble it's caused, and never gets any manner of comeuppance. The one good thing that can be said is that they turn their attitudes around in the end (but largely offscreen). Though, Gene was mostly likely meant to be a Hate Sink character.
