* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Series creator Satoshi Tajiji's favorite Pokémon are Poliwag and Poliwhirl.
** Game director Junichi Masuda has stated that his six favorite Pokémon are Pichu, Victini, Alolan Exeggutor, Sylveon, Torchic, and especially Psyduck, to the point where it appears in every regional Pokédex and was going to have Eevee's spot in ''VideoGame/PokemonLetsGoPikachuAndLetsGoEevee''.


** He has a ''particular'' fondness for [[ComicBook/XMen Storm]] (it's not a coincidence that bad guys under his pen often [[VillainRespect take]] [[BaddieFlattery a]] [[WeCanRuleTogether shine]] to her). He also particularly likes Shadowcat. In both those instances, these are sterling examples of TropesAreNotBad, since both characters are beloved by fans as well. On a lesser side, he was particularly fond of Sage during the early-to-mid-noughts, having her go from very minor recurring character to major member of a tertiary X-Men title to ''Uncanny X-Men'' to ''New Excalibur'' to a major supporting role in his run on ''Exiles''.

* Creator/KaneHodder, the suit actor for Jason Voorhees in several ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' films, considers one scene in particular to be his favorite: when Jason slams a hapless victim trapped in a sleeping bag into a tree in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood''.

* In Wrestling/{{AAA}}, Sexy Star was a favorite of promoter Dorian Roldan. She was generally billed as the top woman in AAA's women's division. This isn't to say she was bad enough in the ring or disliked enough by fans to be a full on Creator's Pet, but backstage, she was known as the "female Hulk Hogan of Mexico" for her politicing. Things hit the fan though when Star left wrestling to become a boxer - and then came back a few months later. AAA stripped then-champion Taya Valkyrie of the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship on a technicality, and within short order Star was champion again. This lead to a major increase in the intensity of her unpopularity backstage. Then - and take the following with a grain of salt as it's never been proven - Star got into a real fight backstage with a friend of Taya's, Lady Shani, and despite having been a professional boxer briefly, lost thefight handily. It is then believed that wounded dignity from the lost fight is why Star infamously applied a shoot armbar to and injured Rosemary. And Dorian Roldan initially refused to take any action at all against Star, making comments implying that he thought it was nobody's business how he managed backstage discipline. However, when AAA's sponsors threatened to pull out if nothing was done, Roldan caved and fired Star.

* ''Literature/TheSchoolForGoodAndEvil'''s author Soman Chainani [[https://schoolforgoodandevil.com/the-series/q-a/ has said]] that Sophie is his favorite character.


** Eric Saward's favourite monster was the Cybermen, an affection that some fans (and Creator/TerranceDicks) found crossed into VillainSue or HijackedByGanon at times. Dicks's famous WriterRevolt was when he had a very cheap monster, a robot played by a ballet dancer in a morphsuit, slaughter a whole platoon of Cybermen in a gratuitous CurbStompBattle in "[[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors The Five Doctors]]", just to make Saward cross.

* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'''s creator Chris Hazelton has stated that his favorite character in the strip is Emily and he loves writing drawing her the most, and that she is the character he most identifies with in story. Which possibly explains her borderline "Sue-ish" moments.

* The greatest lie the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world that Wrestling/TripleH was over.


* Savio Vega, in the mid 90s. A big name in the Puerto Rico wrestling scene, he was moderately talented and hired by WWE, where he was moderately over. He was teamed up with [[Wrestling/ScottHall Razor Ramon]. He was pushed hard as an underdog contender in the excreable King of the Ring 95. And he was a constant television presence during the early days of Monday Night Raw. Savio never connected with fans the way the bookers hoped he would, but not for their lack of trying.

* It's often the case that pro wrestlers have juice with some of the promotional big-wigs. Other times, the producer just takes an odd liking to them, and gives them the stage at every opportunity. Some examples from {{Wrestling/WWE}}: Wrestling/HonkyTonkMan (Elvis impersonator, known for getting hit with his own guitars), [[Wrestling/MikeRotunda Irwin R. Schyster]] (tax collector, known for "auditing" his opponents), Wrestling/BrayWyatt (Max Cady imitator, known for his fortune cookie babble), and Hugo Savinovich (um...[[http://www.wrestlecrap.com/halloween95-saviodance.gif dances?]]).
-->'''''{{Website/Wrestlecrap}}:''''' Here’s the thing about Savio: he was on like every ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' from 1994-1996. Like every single one. Why? Who knows. Maybe [[Wrestling/VinceMcmahon Vince]] thought he was the second coming of Wrestling/PedroMorales or something. Anyway, he was on a million of these shows, yet somehow I had successfully blocked his dance routine from my memory. And now it comes rushing back. Yeesh.
* Examples from {{Wrestling/WCW}}: Wrestling/ScottSteiner, The Dog aka Al Green (literally a guy who barked and ran around on all fours; he feuded with Ernest "The Cat Miller"), [[Wrestling/{{Virgil}} Vincent]], and Marc Mero a.k.a. {{Wrestling/Sable}}'s ex-husband.
-->'''[[http://uproxx.com/prowrestling/2014/11/the-best-and-worst-of-wcw-monday-nitro-12495/3/ Brandon Stroud]]''': If you’re not familiar with Johnny B. Badd, here’s what you need to know: WCW gave a former boxer with almost no wrestling training a Music/LittleRichard gimmick and put him over everybody for five years. A Little Richard gimmick. His finish was a punch. A Little Richard who could beat you by punching you once. Also, he had a confetti gun. DO YOU LOVE JOHNNY B. BADD YET.
* Wrestling/{{Sable}} came into WWF at a time when women's wrestling was dead and the only role for women was to valet. Furthermore, she hadn't the microphone skills of either of the other women on the roster, Sunny and Marlena both having been in the wrestling business for years. Yet, for some reason, both Vince [=McMahon=] and Vince Russo were enamored of her. And thanks to good writing and pushing her as an ActionGirl (something that had never been done by a promotion with a national audience at the time), for a couple years, everyone else was too. WWF even brought back the Women's Championship just to give Sable something to do, and even the purists couldn't say too much bad about her matches because there was nothing to compare them to and they were mostly booked around her inability to actually wrestle. Sable was less than pleasant to deal with behind the scenes and this caught up with her, causing her to leave WWF in mid-1999. When she returned in 2003 she was no longer so unique and wasn't pushed as hard as a result - she could be seen in the background of a lot of upper midcard angles, but wasn't the focus of them.

* A peak modern example would be Baron Corbin. He hasn't been pushed hard enough to quite be a creator's pet, but he's always on television, always has a major role in some kind of storyline or other. He's not very good in the ring and isn't over. He gets tons of focus. When he couldn't get over as a monster heel, he was made into the Smackdown General Manager. He was [[Wrestling/KurtAngle Kurt Angle's]] opponent in his final match - and he won. He still isn't really over, and has never had a good match.
* By his own admission, Wrestling/PerrySaturn was a favorite of WCW booker Eric Bischoff. It wasn't enough to get him through the glass ceiling, but Saturn always had something to do, had a reign as Television Champion and a reign as Tag Champion (with Raven). More importantly, he rarely had to lose at a time when undercard
