Gino Weinberg of Code Geass. I've seen he has numerous fans in addition to haters, so would he not fit Base-Breaking Character more? Until this can be replied to, I hid his example on the page.

After consideration, I shall remove Gino from the list, as well as Empress Tianzi, for the given reason has no in show basis, as well as seeing no hate for her.

Ah yes, I wrote that years and years ago. Maybe out of frustration with him getting too close to Kallen.

My understanding now is that he's essentially a victim of the numerous changes that happened with R2 while it was in development. Though unlike the rest of the Knights of the Round he was actually present in the promotional art alongside Anya, so they probably felt they had to keep him in but had really nothing for him to do since they tagged him as the Nice Guy. This coupled with his tendency to be really dense and say the obvious or just be a generic ladies man just grate against the rest of the show and with an already rushed and muddled season its frustrating to see precious runtime wasted on him doing his bit. At least Anya had plot relevance in the grand scheme of things.

Though in all honesty I've never once seen any fans of him.

Cut out this example pertaining to Black Butler.

This is completely unture. I've seen plenty of fans for Lizzie in the portion of the fanbase I've stuck to and, in the most recent poll, she got eighth place. Plus, Sebastian/Ciel fangirls have been dying out. That, or I'm really good at avoiding them =3=

How dare you put Team Rocket on the scrappy page when their the best characters in pokemon! and yet Iris isn't here and she should be on the top of the list! Because she's way more irritating then they are. In fact if I owned pokemon I'd have the T Rio do a heel face turn and make them the stars. and kill Iris off in the most brutal way I could think of!

Kill la Kill examples were meant to hated, shall they be removed, or given an explanation for there hatedom (like choosing to die in ways that denied the heroes and audiences the satisfaction)?

Hate Sink examples ought to be removed.

I was the one who suggested Soi Fong, May's Munchlax, Koga, and Ritsuko Akagi. I hated Soi Fong the moment she said that she doesn't care who she kills, Munchlax for the reasons eventually mentioned, Koga for not receiving any blame during both arguments between him, InuYasha, and Kagome, and Akagi for killing Rei, thus turning me off from this anime for good. Also, even though I'm avoiding Madoka Magica like the plague (don't judge me), I think Kyouko should be a possible candidate for a Scrappy because not only do some people think of her as an Ensemble Darkhorse (why?), but she was a bitch and she kinda looks like a demon (I'm aware that she did get better like Rebecca, but still...).

That seems more like an argument for "hateworthy character" rather than "unpopular character", if you get the difference.
