Hated by All

Go To

Robin (Damian Wayne): Who put a hit on me?
Deadshot: Anyone who's ever met you.

There are some characters who are unlikeable; they may be a Jerkass, a Villain or even a full-on Hate Sink. Then there are these characters, ones that are so unlikable, so horrible that every single character that has met them In-Universe hates them.

The reason why the character is so hated can vary, it may be because they are such an obnoxious jerk to everyone around them that nobody likes them. They could be a villain who commits atrocities so horrible and openly that everyone, including other villains, finds them horrible. In some cases, the character may even be a genuinely nice person but for some reason out of their control, they are hated by everyone. However, it is more often than not a Super-Trope to Asshole Victim and 0% Approval Rating.

Compare Hate Sink, where the author purposefully makes a character to be despised by the audience, The Scrappy, where nearly the entire audience unintentionally hates a character, All of the Other Reindeer, The Dreaded, Friendless Background, and Even the Loving Hero Has Hated Ones, when a character is so horrible even the All-Loving Hero hates them.

May overlap with Butt-Monkey if the hatred leaves everyone pushing the character around and making fun of them. The reason could be due to Once Done, Never Forgotten. Could also overlap with The Friend Nobody Likes and Token Evil Teammate if the Hated By All character is part of a group.

If this character dies, this may lead to And There Was Much Rejoicing and/or Who Murdered the Asshole?

If the audience likes them, this character may be a Unpopular Popular Character.

The opposite of Hates Everyone Equally, though the hated character may well be this in response. Alternatively, this may be the main reason why the character is hated in the first place. Compare Cosmic Plaything if the hatred is for no reason.

    Anime & Manga 
  • In the Ace Attorney manga, some of the Asshole Victim characters achieve this status, just like in canon.
    • In Phoenix's manga, Robin Wolfe, the victim of the second case invited his arachnophobic employee Eddie Johnson over to his house and tortured him with spiders, ostensibly because of Eddie's bad attitude at work, although Robin's daughter Lira claims he disapproved of him going out with her. Robin manipulated his brother Robert "Bobby" Wolfe by using him as a courier in order to get him out of the way, and it is later revealed that Robin physically restrains Bobby in a chair to keep him out of sight of guests. Robin, anticipating that he'll be prosecuted for killing Eddie after the latter commits suicide, but Phoenix, realizing that Robin is most likely guilty, decides to refuse his request. Robin is so hated by the rest of his family that when he ends up being murdered, practically everyone has a plausible motive for killing him, not just Bobby or the actual culprit Eddie's brother Brock.
    • Marco Swindell from Edgeworth's manga bilks money from the clinic where he was treated, resulting in the clinic staff despising him, although the doctor, who's too nice for his own good, puts up with him. Clive Fortuna, a patient, kills Swindell out of misguided loyalty to the doctor.
  • The Devilman series is filled with evil, loathsome demons who will bring horrid fates on the innocent. Which should tell you something that Jinmen, the turtle demon, is reviled even by other demons for his sadistic personality and utter relishing of human suffering. No one likes Jinmen.
  • Dragon Ball:
    • For most of the franchise, nobody liked Vegeta, and given his arrogant, selfish personality, it's not hard to understand why. He was ostracized and insulted by Frieza's empire for being a Saiyan, and the Z-Fighters could barely tolerate him and spent most of their time insulting him to his face, with Krillin coming right out and saying he wouldn't care one bit if Vegeta died; even Future Trunks, his own son, spent as much time berating Vegeta as he did seeking his approval. As revealed in Minus, not even his fellow Saiyans really liked him, with Bardock outright describing him as a pain in the neck. This has leveled off come Super after Vegeta got a healthy dose of Character Development, but even then, Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta's family are the only ones who are completely open with liking having him around.
    • Goku Black is despised by everyone, and because Black despises mortals, the feeling is very much mutual for him. It says a lot that the only person that he has any kinship with is his Alternate Self, Future Zamasu.
  • Durarara!!: Izaya is detested by nearly everyone for his awful Manipulative Bastard tendencies and his twisted love for humans that drives him to force people into worse and worse situations for no other reason than to see what will happen. The only reason he's tolerated is that as an information broker, he's an invaluable resource, but that does not mean anyone remotely cares when he's hospitalized after a stabbing or when Izaya is forced to depart from Ikebukuro in the end.
  • Fairy Tail: Acnologia, the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse. Nobody likes him, which is just fine for him because he Hates Everyone Equally to the point that he rampages around destroying homes and buildings, and killing people, for fun. In fact, one of the main reasons why Zeref wants Fairy Heart is to take Acnologia down. If that had been his only goal, there is a very good chance that Fairy Tail would've aided him as they want him gone too. Unfortunately, Zeref also wants to destroy humanity, nixing any hope of an Enemy Mine.
  • Fruits Basket:
    • Akito Sohma is a Yandere Spoiled Brat whose actions and extensive physical and emotional abuse of the Zodiac members have earned her the hatred of nearly the entire Sohma family, to the extent a separate faction formed. Unfortunately, due to the power Akito holds as the head of the Sohma family and the God of the Zodiac, there's generally very little most of them can actually do to fight back against her. Even come Another, where she has undergone a Heel–Face Turn and Taken a Level in Kindness, she's not very popular outside of her immediate family, with several retainers harassing her son Shiki by telling him what a horrible person she used to be; one flat-out refers to Akito as "human garbage."
    • While Akito does at least have the support of the older maids, who believe that the head of the family deserves their devotion, nobody likes her abusive mother Ren. A good portion of the Sohma family hated her when she managed to win the heart of the then-head of the family, despite being a maid, and nowadays, she's despised for being an Evil Matriarch who shaped Akito into the abusive Yandere she is today.
  • High School D×D: Diodora Astaroth is a sadistic Hope Crusher who's favorite pastime is getting nuns branded as heretics and driving them to despair before raping and/or murdering them. Just about everyone hates him (even before knowing about the aforementioned pastime), and Issei eventually realizes, and states outright, that the only reason any of the other Devils even put up with Diodora, let alone haven't just killed him, is because he's related to Ajuka Beelzebub, one of the Four Great Satans, and offing him could cause a civil war. Once he throws in his lot with the Chaos Brigade and participates in a plot that would have killed a lot of high-ranking people, what little protection he had disappears and nobody misses him when his boss Shalba offs him for his failure when the plot is foiled.
  • InuYasha: Nearly every named character in the series completely despises Naraku and wants him dead, including his detachments, which are explicitly stated to be spawned from his own flesh. Yes, that's right; Naraku is such a dick that even his own body parts hate him. It's to the extent that when he creates the Baby, a construct of his own heart, he actually anticipates that it will eventually betray him.
  • The Apollo familia in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? isn't particularly well-liked by the other familias due to their completely irredeemable qualities and get the third parties caught in the crossfire of their attacks on Hestia and Bellnote . Other familias are so disgusted that before the War Game they actively break the pact of neutrality; Ais helps Bell train to become a better fighter while Miach and Takemikazuchi abduct Luan so that Liliruca can serve as his body double behind enemy lines.
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
    • Golden Wind has Cioccolata, a Mad Doctor working for Passione as a chance to torture and murder people for the sake of it. Even the Big Bad despises him and has at least two loyal members working for him. Cioccolata doesn't even have that, since his only ally secretly hates him and only assists him for protection.
    • Stone Ocean has Kenzō, an egotistical former leader of a suicide cult hated by everyone in the entire prison, even pedophiles.
  • Kengan Omega:
    • Yumigahama is a greedy and smug jerk who took the title of Fang to gain prestige before betraying the Kengan Association to work for Purgatory for money. Obviously the people from the Kengan Association despise him for being a turncoat, but his new colleagues aren't warm about him either, since he often goes out of his way to be a dick to everyone else. At the start of the tournament, Carlos punches him for injuring his friend Jose, while Lolong never wastes any opportunity to badmouth Yumigahama.
    • Akoya's obsession with delivering "justice" and his penchant for using excessive violence in his fights causes him to be treated as a liability by his own teammates, none of whom really want him to be there. When he eventually enters the ring, even those who support the Kengan Association are reluctant to cheer for him.
  • Naruto: Almost everyone who has ever met and spoken with Madara Uchiha completely despises him, including his protege Tobi aka Obito Uchiha. Even the Nine-Tailed Fox, a self-proclaimed "living mass of malevolence," finds Madara to be nothing but an insufferable dick. The only people who can actually tolerate him are Senju Hashirama, who was once his best friend, and Izuna, his brother, though Madara did everything he could to hate Hashirama and, in rejecting his assistance, essentially let Izuna die.
  • My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!: Considering that all of her routes involve being exiled or dying, it really shows how unpopular the original Catarina is in Fortune Lover. To wit, even her fiancee Prince Geordo can break off his engagement to her in order to marry the game's protagonist Maria, her adoptive brother Keith cares nothing for her after all the abuse she put him through, and both of them can end up killing her to protect Maria. Naturally, the trope is inverted in the story proper, with Catarina ending up unwittingly gathering a harem instead.
  • The Rising of the Shield Hero: Malty Melromarc slowly becomes this over time as she commits increasingly depraved acts out of petty spite, For the Evulz, or because a seemingly better opportunity presents itself. Anyone who has allied with her would eventually get stabbed in the back by Malty when she decides they're no longer needed, enlightening them to how evil she truly is. When she begs for mercy, not even her former allies are willing to come to her aid as she already betrayed them (and in Motoyasu's case, his insanity caused him to see her as an ugly pig). Any attempt to correct her behavior instead results in her sociopathy growing worse, and her vile actions eventually cause even her own family (including her once doting father) to declare her a lost cause.
  • A Silent Voice: Due to Shoya's past as a bully to Shouko, everyone has turned their backs on him when Shouko leaves his elementary school. Shoya does make more friends as he redeems himself, though. This makes him one of the very few instances where the main protagonist is this trope.
  • Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs: Alzer Nobles as a group, due to the fact that commoners are so helpless against them, due to tree Crest granted powers, and nobles like Pierre can Kick the Dog all they want without repercussions, as long as the victim isn't a noble.

    Comic Books 
  • Bone: Phoney, by way of being The Friend Nobody Likes. It's said that nobody in Boneville aside from his cousinsnote  respected him due to his greed. Smiley even mentions that the mayor declared a school holiday just so the kids could throw rocks at Phoney. Gran'ma Ben and Lucius also don't care much for him. Thorn is tolerant of him, mostly, but the citizens of Barrelhaven abhor him for his scams.
  • Apart from Harley (and even then, only when their on-off relationship is "on"), Gaggy and Punchline, no one likes or supports The Joker. In any way, whatsoever. Damn near every other member of Batman's Rogues Gallery hates his guts, mostly because not only is he completely sociopathic and unpredictable, but also they are all scared shitless by him. The only reason why he's even allowed in teams such as the Legion of Doom is because of that fear: if they exclude him from the lineup, then chances are that dead bodies will be lining the streets in their name. Trickster spells it out in "Underworld Unleashed."
    Trickster: Great going, Neron, bring in the one guy no one wants to be in the same room with. When super-villains want to scare each other, they tell Joker stories.
  • Popeye: Almost everyone in town hates Wimpy's guts for his constant mooching. Geezil hates him the most and wants him dead (and he's even tried to kill Wimpy a few times). Popeye, however, usually gets along with him, though even he's gotten angry with Wimpy, like when he [Popeye] paid a policeman to arrest him. Olive also mostly tolerates him (probably for Popeye's sake).
  • Much like The Joker above, The Red Skull is loathed almost universally in the Marvel Universe — both Doctor Doom and Magneto want him dead, for very justifiable reasons, and nearly no other villains (outside of his own henchmen) will have anything to do with him. And he is the one villain who will unfailingly get a Heel–Face Door-Slam (assuming he'd ever do a Heel–Face Turn) from every hero anywhere. And that's even multiversally. Protip: When The FREAKIN' Joker wants nothing to do with you, you've gone so far past the Moral Event Horizon that there's no coming back. It's a Justified Trope in that he's not just a Nazi, but was hand-picked by Hitler himself to be the personification of Nazism. And he plays the part with relish and absolutely zero remorse.
  • Squee: Squee himself, as a part of his bad luck. His mother is apathetic to his existence and his father is actively abusive towards him. With the exception of Pepito, almost every kid he meets bullies him. Johnny is another very rare person who cares about him.
  • Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, and Secret Six have all demonstrated that Cheshire is loathed by nearly the entire world stemming from her dropping an atomic bomb on Qurac just to prove she could and laughing about it as the country burned. That's really not the type of thing any person would be immediately forgiven for. She only reinforces this mindset because she's an Ax-Crazy wannabee sociopath and repeated backstabber, and even the people still capable of loving her (solely Roy Harper and their daughter Lian) are wary of Cheshire and tend to get very depressed thinking about her and what she's done.
  • The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye: Despite being a pretty adept captain, pretty much the entire crew hates Megatron's guts because he's Megatron. In a twist however Skids and Getaway admit to one another that it's actually hard for them to hate Megatron — because his crimes are on such a large scale, it's almost impersonal (One death is a tragedy, a billion is a statistics) and hard to process an emotional response. On top of that Megatron is competent and rational on a personal level.
  • The Transformers: Robots in Disguise:
    • During and after All Hail Optimus, the only ones who seem to like Galvatron are the really battle-hungry Decepticons like Acid Storm, Blitzwing, and Brawl. The Decepticons on the commune hate him and the colonist soldiers view him as a Memetic Loser. Even Frenzy and Rumble (who love killing) decide to abandon him due to their loyalty to Soundwave.
    • In Optimus Prime #7, the President mentions that Jazz is feared and hated by humanity for killing John Powell.
  • In Transformers: Shattered Glass, nobody likes Star Saber, who is considered whiny and useless. Not even Swoop likes him, and he loves everyone (Even his enemies).

    Fan Works 
  • Abraxas (Hrodvitnon): Everyone In-Universe, from Viv and San to the Titans that Ghidorah fought or controlled to the humans who were in any way involved in fighting it during the events of Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019); they all hate Ghidorah's guts over every despicable thing the sadistic three-headed Omnicidal Maniac has done, and the feeling renews when Ghidorah regenerates From a Single Head.
  • An Impractical Guide To Godhood: Hera's status as the goddess of marriage causes her to behave unpleasantly toward gods and goddesses who conceive demigods, making her very unpopular. Consequently, after Perseus engineers her downfall, he and his companions are showered with gifts by all of Hera's many enemies.
  • Adam Taurus in Hunters of Justice is universally despised by the survivors of Vale. Rather than helping in the fight against Brainiac's invasion of Remnant, he chose to continue his terroristic crusade against humanity. This prompted many of his fellow White Fang members to defect and join the defense forces. Even after Vale was bottled, he continues to terrorize the survivors by stealing supplies and killing anyone he doesn't like. It's enough that both the forces of Beacon and Torchwick's faction want him dead.
  • The Infinite Loops: All MLEs and infamous malicious non-loopers such as Umbridge have this. Gendo Ikari was one such non-looper until, against all rhyme and reason (which, in the Loops, means Billy), he started looping. Since Evangelion is one of the seven oldest looping universes, almost every looper has had the... pleasure of meeting his baseline self, and none of them are happy to see him looping. Thus, Gendo Ikari finds himself at the mercy of an entire multiverse that more or less hates his guts, and the recipient of yet even more abuse, only except this time he remembers it.
  • The Apex in Infinity Train: Blossoming Trail is hated by practically everyone on the Train but with a justified reason. The Apex has spent the last decade or so, entering cars, destroying them, injuring denizens (or even throwing them onto the wheels) under Grace's misguided belief that passengers are supposed to get their numbers up and the train is for their enjoyment, not mental development. By the time the sequel, Infinity Train: Voyage of Wisteria starts, they're easy pickings for disgruntled deniznes to be dragged into the Hazbin Car.
  • Junior Officers:
  • The Karma Circle: Chances On Top of Chances: When Gaz is laid up in the hospital with a stomach bug, her classmates take the opportunity to send her get-well cards expressing how much they hate her for being a vindictive, violent bully.
    Card #1: We just want you to know that, despite everything you did to us, we still feel the same about you as we always did...that you be dragged through the desert, on fire and fed to venomous scorpions.
    Card #2: Saw you puke out half your body at lunchtime. Do the school a favor and puke out the other half, then we'll be rid of you completely.
    Card #3: I can't tell you how sorry I was to hear you were sick. Sorry that you're not dead yet. Screw you for force-feeding me my own inhaler.
  • The Karma of Lies:
    • Hawkmoth naturally holds this status due to terrorizing Paris with his akuma. This becomes a major problem for Adrien once the villain is unmasked as none other than his own father, causing public opinion of the Agrestes to take a severe nosedive.
    • By the climax, this applies to none other than Adrien himself. Thanks to his own actions, Paris has become convinced that he served as an accomplice to his father. His classmates/former friends also despise him for leaving them in the dark about Lila, letting her bilk them out of their belongings and sabotage their dreams.
  • Pokémon: Harmony and Chaos: Anyone who knows Lightning Blitz quickly grows to hate him for his bad attitude and disrespect for everyone. Flash Sentry and his friends all agree his Might Makes Right mentality and disdain for weak Pokémon is toxic to anyone who follows it, and in a setting where Defeat Means Friendship is normally in effect, Lightning noticeably earns no friends at all due to his Unsportsmanlike Gloating. He also noticeably gets the smallest cheers from the crowds whenever he enters a tournament, with the crowd even cheering for Pinkie after he beat her at one point. Pretty much the only person who knows him personally and doesn't outright hate him is his grandfather, Grand Hoof. But even he dislikes the path Lightning has gone down and outright admits Lightning is most likely Beyond Redemption at this point.
  • Scarlet Lady:
    • No one in Ms. Bustier's class likes Chloé thanks to her horrible actions, and the few allies she did have in canon (Adrien and Sabrina) are slowly but surely distancing themselves from her out of disgust. The author flat out states that the only reason she is at class events is that she gets Ms. Bustier to force the class to include her. Even Luka, who hasn't met her, has Hate at First Sight because he's heard about her from Juleka.
    • Chloé as Scarlet Lady is Zig Zagging. She's Paris' beloved heroine... to everyone who hasn't actually met her. When she interacts personally with others as a superhero, she drives them away just as fast as her civilian identity does.
  • Total Drama:
    • Predator and Prey: All of the Peanut Gallery and many of the behind-the-scenes people hate Blaineley, to the point where they throw a huge party in celebration of her being shipped off to the competition.
    • Random Drama Series: Quite literally no one, not even Chris, likes Matthew as the other villains at least have some kind of redeeming quality to them. Matthew has none being an Insufferable Genius who spouts out insults almost as much as he breathes and acts like he's entitled to the million dollars and that all the others are drooling morons who should be kissing his feet. He is also a massive Sore Loser, blaming everyone other than himself for a loss, but also gets annoyed when his team doesn't go to elimination. He gets even worse as he is repeatedly denied the million, leading to him attempting outright murder, first to the final six of Pahkitew Island and then Chris himself in hopes of just stealing the money.
    • Total Drama All-Stars Rewrite:
      • It's apparent that Alejandro has become more hated than even Heather for his actions in World Tour. When Gwen is worried she'll die underground and gives messages to other contestants in the confessional, she tells Heather that she'd be willing to bury the hatchet with her, but tells Alejandro to get bent. And in the four-parter, everybody sans Heather glares at him when he appears.
      • Lightning is revealed to be this as well on the Aftermath show. He infuriates pretty much all the contestants both participating and non-participating with his stupidity and arrogance, while Lindsay outright tells him that he was "kind of annoying". Geoff and Bridgette even show him a compilation of all his fellow competitors getting annoyed by his behavior and personality. Unlike Alejandro however, he is so stupid and full of himself that he doesn't realize that everyone hates him.
  • Code Prime: Absolutely nobody can stand Airachnid. She is the most cruel and sadistic of the Decepticons, enjoys committing massacres just for fun, tormented Arcee, Kallen, Suzaku, and Euphemia among other characters, and will backstab anyone just to make herself look good. Even Megatron and Steeljaw barely tolerate her, though they do see her as useful. Unlike most of the other Decepticons, she has no reedeming qualities, and is hated both in-universe and out of universe.
  • What It Takes: At the end of the story, Quentin. He's kicked off the force, Laurel and Sara have cut him from their lives permanently, their friends hate him too, and the rest of the world holds him in contempt for his complicity in Darhk's plans. The only person who still has any regard for him is Dinah, and that's only because she more interested in the idea of reuniting their family than him as a person. To no one's surprise, he ends up Dying Alone and having a Lonely Funeral to boot.

    Film — Animated 
  • Animal Crackers (2017): The villain, Horatio P. Huntington, and his circus performers are disliked by everyone in general. None of the citizens are interested in watching Horatio's circus perform. Horatio's circus also has a bad reputation with the performers at Bob's circus, as they react with fear and uncertainty whenever Horatio and his goons (but especially Horatio) arrive at the circus.
  • The Christmas Light: Burton is hated by the other workers in Santa's shop, including Santa himself, for being an Insufferable Genius. When he falls into his own invention and becomes an evil snowman monster, his plan is to ruin Christmas and get revenge on all of them.
  • Eight Crazy Nights: Davey Stone's drunken antics and criminal record have earned him the hatred and disgust of virtually everyone in Dukesberry. When he's about to be arrested during the awards ceremony, everyone in the room is delighted to see him get carted off to prison.
  • Frozen (2013): After he exposes himself as the villain, Prince Hans is viewed with disdain anytime he's mentioned in the franchise, partly because he faked his romance with Anna and tried to kill Elsa so he can seize control of Arendelle. When he's punched off the boat by Anna, the dignitaries clap at the sight when they realized the two-timing man he turned out to be.
    • In Frozen Fever, his trademark white suit is dirty, having been condemned to do physical labor back home. Suddenly, he gets pummeled into a wagon full of literal Road Apples by a giant snowball accidentally launched by a sick Elsa. The nearby horses even laugh at his misfortune. The Frozen Ever After attraction at the Epcot theme park revealed that people in the Southern Isles found it funny when he was knocked into the wagon.
    • In Frozen II, he's the butt of jokes during a game of charades the heroes play, and Elsa even destroys an ice statue of him.
    • In spin-offs, the heroes voice their contempt for him. In Frozen II: A Forest of Shadows, Anna thinks of him as "villainous" and "evil", and in The Secret Admirer, he is the only person Olaf does not like.
    • He isn't even safe in other Disney films, as shown in Big Hero 6 when a statue of him is promptly destroyed by Baymax.
    • In Kingdom Hearts III, despite not knowing who he is, Sora immediately became suspicious of Hans due to being able to detect a great amount of darkness within him. Said evil is what led him to become a Savage Wolf Heartless that attempted to drown the world in darkness.
  • Hercules: The moment he makes his "hunk of moussaka stuck in [his] throat" joke, Hades kills the party atmosphere in his Establishing Character Moment by getting silent stares of contempt from his fellow Olympians, who are unhappy to see him. This is done to show how out-of-touch he is with his fellow gods. It's implied he's despised for the cruel way he treats mortal souls for his sick amusement as Lord of the Underworld. When Zeus makes a similar pun about his workaholicism, the entire pantheon bursts open in laughter, causing Hades to storm off. Pain and Panic also have no love for him, given that he's a Bad Boss.
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Judge Claude Frollo is reviled by just about everyone in Paris for his Holier Than Thou Knight Templar attitude, but everyone is too afraid to stand up or speak out against him. Of course, after he goes on a rampage through the city, burning most of it down in search of Esmeralda, they all get sick of it; they all protest his attempt to burn Esmeralda at the stake, and when he attacks Notre Dame itself in pursuit of Quasimodo, Phoebus is able to rally the citizens against him.
  • The LEGO Ninjago Movie: With the exception of the Secret Ninja Force (Kai, Nya, Jay, Zane, and Cole) and his mother, Lloyd is widely hated just for being Garmadon's son. When he enters the school bus, everyone immediately moves to the other side of the bus, which makes the bus tip over on one side. The cheerleaders' song "Boo Lloyd" also becomes very popular in town.
  • The Lion King (1994): After he took over the Pride Lands, Scar is such an unpopular ruler that even the land itself seems to hate him, becoming Mordor due to his slackness. Even the hyena lackeys who helped him come to power came to realize that his brother Mufasa was a way better ruler. That Scar gets irritated whenever he's criticized about his rule speaks volumes. Yet no one tried overthrowing the guy until Simba returns from exile to take him down. Nobody felt sorry for Scar when the hyenas maul him to death after they overheard his plot to betray them. Once Simba took over, Pride Rock becomes the Ghibli Hills it once was.
  • My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks: Even though Sunset Shimmer has become a better person, almost no one in school has forgiven her, with the exception of the Rainbooms. Even then, they still have their share of friction with her.
  • Robin Hood (1973): The Sheriff of Nottingham, thanks to his gleeful enjoyment of his work as a tax collector, is loathed by all of the townsfolk in Nottingham; so much so that every one of his shots on the archery tournament is met with boos and jeers.
  • Toy Story 3: Everyone in-universe either fears or hates Lotso. His followers abandon him after his treatment of Big Baby gets revealed, and the protagonists deem him Beyond Redemption after he leaves them for dead in the incinerator despite them risking their own lives to save him about a minute beforehand. Even before his subordinates pulled a Heel–Face Turn, Bonnie's toys and the Chatter Telephone were visibly wary of Sunnyside, and the Bookworm knew Andy's toys were escaping the daycare center but just didn't care.
  • Wreck-It Ralph:
    • Ralph suffers from this because he's an '80s video game villain. What makes this worse is that his working buddy (and the title star of the game) Fix-It Felix, Jr. is loved by everyone and the Nicelanders use it to shun and ridicule Ralph. In fact, this is what forces Ralph to start the main plot: he's tired of being ostracized.
    • All the Sugar Rush racers look down on Vanellope for being a glitch due to King Candy altering their memories. They accept her once their memories are restored.
    • Played for Laughs with the Surge Protector when he implies that he isn't well-liked by most people:
      Surge Protector: Anything to declare?
      Ralph: I hate you.
      Surge Protector: I get that a lot. Proceed.

    Film — Live-Action 
  • In the Blade Trilogy, Deacon Frost is not well-liked by the vampire community, with the House of Erebus hating him. In fact, in the second film, when Damaskinos first meets Blade, he actually thanks Blade for killing Frost, saying he "did [him] a favor."
  • Halloween: Michael Myers is such a notorious serial killer, everyone in Haddonfield would often team up to try to stop his reign of terror regardless of whether they'd stand a chance against him.
  • In The Phantom of the Opera (1962), it's made incredibly clear that no one involved in the production of Lord Ambrose D'Arcy's opera likes him. They all can see him for the Jerkass he is but are afraid to stand up to him because of his power and influence.
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe:
    • Absolutely no one in the MCU seems to like Thaddeus Ross. From heroes like Captain America, to villains like the Abomination, and even his own daughter have voiced their hatred of him. That being said, his actions against Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk (2008), and the Avengers in both Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War make this trope one hundred percent justified. Special mention goes to how in Civil War, Rhodey, as a fellow military man, was respectful of Ross for his military achievements and supportive of the Sokovia Accords. By Infinity War, two years of working with the man have deeply soured Rhodey's outlook of both Ross personally and the Accords in general.
    • Downplayed with Thanos, he is hated and feared by most of the galaxy due to his reputation as a genocidal warmonger; going from planet to planet and halving the population of every world you visit in the name of a bizarre self-appointed mission to balance the universe is not a good way to make friends. That being said, he does have quite a number of underlings who are loyal to him — but even then, Thanos' status as a harsh taskmaster means even working for him is no guarantee. Loki only continues to serve him in The Avengers out of fear for what Thanos will do to him if he doesn't conquer Earth, while Ronan initially works for him in Guardians of the Galaxy, only to later turn on him because of Thanos' unfiltered contempt for him.
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street: No one, and we do mean No one like Freddy Krueger, and quite justifiably so. He's a vile, sadistic child-killer and a Smug Super who relishes torturing his victims with grotesque nightmares before killing them. Freddy's own mother outright states his birth was a curse on all mankind. Even Jason Voorhees, a brutal Serial Killer himself, is rational enough to view Krueger as human garbage. In fact, Freddy is so awful he remains one of the only big name Slasher villains to never gain like-minded accomplices, nor inspire any loyalty, affection, or friendship, even temporarily.note 
  • It's a Wonderful Life: For trying to squeeze them dry, no one in Bedford Falls likes Tyrannical Town Tycoon Henry Potter, who is a Morally Bankrupt Banker — he even flat-out says this at one point and admits that he Hates Everyone Equally. In fact, he was outvoted by the Building and Loan's board when he attempted to dissolve the bank. Only George Bailey keeps him at bay. When George wishes he was never born, he is transported to a reality where Potter took over Bedford Falls and renamed it Pottersville, a Wretched Hive full of sin and debauchery. Potter stands out as one of film history's most infamous misers, especially when he stole $8,000 from the B&L and tried framing George over it. Seriously, does this jackass who views others "worth more dead than alive" care about anybody?
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (2020): Robotnik is despised by almost everyone except for Agent Stone. And given he's a rude, obnoxious Mad Scientist with no scruples, it's not hard to see why. The government only hires him because he's just that good in spite of how much of a jerk he is, and only brings him in to capture Sonic once they realize they have no other choice. When Robotnik is banished to the Mushroom Planet, they're happy he's gone and immediately remove any trace of his existence.
  • The Wizard of Oz: The Wicked Witch of the West. The second she died, her minions started cheering Dorothy for killing her because she was controlling them with magic.
    • One might also consider The Wicked Witch of the East. When the munchkins realized she was dead, they broke into song for a good long while (Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead).
  • World's Greatest Dad: Absolutely nobody likes Kyle. He is openly sexist, ableist, homophobic and disrespectful. He looks down on music, sports, and just about anything that doesn't involve sex. He has nothing remotely nice to say about his own father, the only person in town who cares for him despite being aware how awful he is. The only time people have anything nice to say about him is when Lance forges a suicide note to make him seem more troubled than he really was.

    Literature 
  • A Christmas Carol: It's established from the very beginning of the story that Ebenezer Scrooge is universally despised by everyone in London to the extent that in his Bad Future, not one person mourns his death or has anything nice to say about him. Indeed, one businessman remarks "Old Scratch has got his own at last". "Old Scratch" is a euphemism for the Devil — he is unashamedly saying that he's sure Scrooge has gone down to Hell.
  • Mr. Men:
    • In Mr. Rude's spotlight book, it is said that nobody likes him because he's constantly insulting everyone.
    • No one likes Mr. Snooty for his pompousness and snobbery, and they often call him "Miserable Old Snooty".
  • Harry Potter
    • Dolores Umbridge is an aversion. She manages to appeal to the magic Nazi/sadomasochist niche that the school just happens to have in the form of Slytherin House. Plus, many at the ministry seem to find her pleasant enough, though that may be because many of them don't know of her true nature.
    • Played straight with Tom Marvolo Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort. While there are devoted followers such as Bellatrix Lestrange and Barty Crouch Jr., the rest of the Wizarding World fears and/or despises him. None of his "followers" looked for him after his supposed "death" after the first Wizarding War. Most stay with him out of fear or their cause and not loyalty. At the end of the final battle, most of them abandon him. When he dies, everyone rejoices and they throw his body in an unmarked vault in the school.
    • Marietta Edgecombe is shunned by everyone except Cho, including the kids in Ravenclaw because she sold out Dumbledore to Umbridge and to the Ministry of Magic. This leads to Umbridge taking over Hogwarts and turning the Slytherins into her Inquisitorial Squad. The one thing that most of the houses can agree on is that Umbridge is horrible and a tyrant. Thus, anyone that works with her is evil by association.
  • Origami Yoda: Harvey isn't very popular at McQuarrie Middle School due to his smart-alecky sense of humor and general rudeness. In "The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee", when he denies that he acts like a jerk, everyone else immediately responds with, "Yes, you do."
  • House Frey of A Song of Ice and Fire are, and quite impressively considering they're competing with the ruthless Lannisters and flay happy Boltons, the most reviled house in Westeros. After the infamous Red Wedding, no one in the realm will ever trust them again. And even their nominal remaining ally, House Lannister, doesn't do much to help when their wedding massacre spurs people to start offing them left, right and center.
  • Bazil Broketail:
    • Porteous Glaves is a pompous jerkass hated by all of his subordinates immediately as he makes them wear outdated leather collars that are very uncomfortable. He only makes himself more unpopular, and turns out to be a cowardly traitor as well.
    • Nobody among his subordinates likes Digal Turrent — neither humans, nor dragons, as he's a tyrant who enjoys punishing subordinates. Their feelings are apparently reciprocated. Fortunately, they all get better eventually.
    • Humans and dragons under Delwild Wiliger's command dislike him even more than Turrent (who, at the very least, knew what he was doing) at first, as he's a Mood-Swinger jerkass.
  • Jaine Austen Mysteries:
    • In the eiplogue to Pampered to Death, Jaine explains that Mallory Francis was so despised that various Hollywood crew members who have worked with Mallory raised a defense fund for her killer that reached nearly a million dollars.
    • It's clear that practically all the suspects hated Dean Oliver in Murder Has Nine Lives. given he was a sleazy Con Man and was constantly cheating on his wife, it's hard to blame him.

    Live-Action TV 
  • All My Children has quite a few examples:
    • Michael Cambias earned this when he raped Bianca. At his funeral, literally everyone in Pine Valley attended said funeral simply to give eulogies on how much they hate him for what he did, with Bianca's then-lover Lena literally spitting on his grave. Hell, he was so hated that some of Bianca's friends broke into the funeral home and stole his body just so they could throw it in the dump. His casket was empty.
    • When Will Cortlandt was beaten to death with a crowbar, his approval rating was so abysmal that there were no less than fifteen suspects, including his own sister.
    • After David Hayward's apparent death, only Greenlee, Marissa, and Krystal attended his funeral; he had become such a pariah by that time that everyone else in town celebrated his demise at ConFusion.
    • Greenlee Smythe earned this for a while after she exposed Kendall's pregnancy with Michael's child as a fake in the middle of her trial for Michael's murder, and cemented it even further when it is believed that she caused Kendall's son Spike to go deaf.
  • Arrowverse:
    • After his Harrison Wells cover is blown, it becomes clear that nobody likes Eobard Thawne, hero or villain.
      • During his time on Legends of Tomorrow as a member of the Legion of Doom, he tries to cozy up to Darhk and Merlyn, however his unlikable qualities eventually make the two of them fed up with him. By the time of "Doomworld" all of his Legion comrades have turned on him and hate him just as much as the Legends do.
      • In Crisis on Earth-X, he's one of the New Reich's enforcers, but it's clear they only tolerate him because they need him and not because they like him. He's constantly at odds with Earth-X Oliver and Kara who seem like they'd be happy to kill him should he step out-of-line or outlive his usefulness. The feeling is mutual, with Thawne bailing the scene as soon as it becomes obvious the Nazis have no chance of winning.
    • Similar to Thawne, the more she appears, the more it becomes clear that no one likes Amanda Waller. There's a laundry list of reasons for that: being a Stupid Evil leader of a shady government organization whose first and only solution to a problem is murder; dangling the lives of loved ones over her agents' heads to strong-arm them into compliance; regularly covering up atrocities, either to protect ARGUS' reputation or her own; and for her condescending manipulative argument. Literally everyone who has worked with her hates her guts. When karma finally catches up to her and her disregard for human life gets her killed in season 4, Lyla tries to hold a vigil for her, which consists of Team Arrow awkwardly standing in silence with glasses of champagne before Felicity brings up how she tried to blow Star City to smithereens during Deathstroke's siege on the city.
  • Big Brother Brasil had in its 21st edition singer Karol Conká, who entered the house with others having known and liked her work. And then her sarcastic and non-empathic behavior towards her housemates garnered a very negative reception from the participants and viewers alike. The latter in particular - in a case that was the closest to real-life 0% Approval Rating, when she could possibly be voted out of the house 99.17% of the audience chose her to leave. The show's broadcaster even did her best for her to Win Back the Crowd, making a documentary series on Karol's post-Big Brother life indicatively named "Life After the Fall".
  • The Black Mirror episode "Hated in the Nation" involves a hacker who has hijacked Britain's supply of robotic bees in order to turn them into a killing swarm against people who have become sufficiently reviled on social media.
  • The Cry of Mann: During the "Tanking Mann" segments, which is a fictionalized after-show, actor Sam Weiner plays...Sam Weiner, as a narcissistic Jerkass that nobody in the actual Wham City cast can stand. Even the hosts of the show, Becca and Rebecca, get utterly sick of him showing up and making their show about him. This carries on into the Cry of Mann proper, where Sam gives his character an impromptu monologue and gets glared at by the others. Even in the sequel Call of Warr, where Tanking Mann was ditched, there's a brief moment where the cast break character and make Sam stop hogging the spotlight.
  • The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air had Judge Robertson. Although the family told him not to go to the funeral after all the mudslinging Robertson did to win an election, Phil drags the rest of the family since he considered Robertson an old friend. At the wake, Philip forgot his eulogy and asked anyone with a happy memory of Robertson to share it. When no one said anything Philip asked if anyone remembered him. The first speaker stated that the judge sent him to jail for a crime he didn't commit. The second speaker, the former gardener, recalled when Robertson not only refused to pay him for his services but tried to have him deported. Even the judge's mistress had nothing good to say about him. When Will tried to guilt the audience by partially quoting Shylock’s monologue, the first speaker called out Will on who he was to tell them that. When Will responded that he "killed" Judge Robertson, the attendees clapped and cheered him.
  • House of Anubis: Everyone in Season 3 winds up hating Miss Denby, with the only exception being Joy, Jerome, Mara, and Willow, all of whom were caught up in their own drama and unaware of what was happening. Sibuna hated her for being evil and using her role as a teacher to manipulate or bully them. Victor and the Sinners hated her for bossing them around. Frobisher-Smythe thought she was obnoxious, and even her own sister hated her for years of abuse and identity theft.
  • Letterkenny:
    • When Hard Right Jay comes to town, he gets on everyone's nerves immediately with his racist/sexist views and stupid alt-right conspiracy theories. It ends with his group of alt-righters getting thoroughly stomped by the Hicks and the Natives.
    • No one in Letterkenny likes Angie. The Hicks hate her for cheating on Wayne prior to the series' start, and everyone else hates her for her homewrecking tendencies. When she returns from a Long Bus Trip to England in season 9, the entirety of Mod3an's tells her to pull her finger out of her ass.
  • Malcolm in the Middle:
    • The entire family is hated by their neighborhood, to the point that said neighborhood throws a huge block party to coincide with their annual vacation.
      • In the episode where Lois is bedridden with Mono, it's revealed that the neighborhood actually likes Hal and it's really Lois that they hate. He starts getting invited to neighborhood parties that were previously kept secret from him since they no longer have to deal with his wife. A couple of them even conspire to split them up by introducing Hal to a recent divorcee.
  • Married... with Children: In one episode, when Al is believed dead, the entire neighborhood apparently broke out into song ("Ding dong, the shoe man's dead"), and declared it a "cruel, cruel hoax" when they found out he was still alive. Al even admits in another episode that the entire city "curses the day [he] was born."
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe:
    • Zig-Zagged with Kingpin's downfall. He works hard to maintain an image of a well-meaning philanthropist falsely accused of horrible crimes, yet he invariably alienates those who actually work for or with him through his behavior (with the notable exception of Wesley, who dies early on anyway) to the point that some of his closest underlings are only there because he's bullied, blackmailed or manipulated them. This is especially notable in season 3 where he gets his entire FBI detail in his pocket by digging up dirt on them and/or threatening their families, leading to them testifying against him once he is actually arrested anyway, and especially with Dex who turns on him the moment he learns that Fisk had Julie killed just to undermine his sanity further. The public at large alternates between loving him and loathing him depending on what they think about him is true, and at the end of the day, he's just plain unable and unwilling to invest in genuine loyalty rather than mere obedience, basically giving members of his own organization every reason to want him to somehow fail.
    • By the end of Season 1 of Luke Cage (2016), nobody can tolerate Diamondback. Stopping him becomes Luke's number one priority. Even all of the villains turn against him, with Shades and Mariah rooting for Luke to take him down and even try to form a truce with him.
  • Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide: "The Killer Bees" are hated by the rest of the school, even other bullies like Loomer and the Huge Crew, due to being obnoxious jerks who dominate the spelling bee and torment everyone else. In their introduction, everyone rallies behind Cookie so that someone can finally beat the Bees, and in their second episode, they actually befriend Cookie...until it turns out they're just using him to get their grades changed in the computer, and he ditches them for Ned immediately.
  • Oz: Absolutely no one likes Scott Ross, due to him being a perverted dickhead who's constantly harassing everyone else for no good reason. Even his closest friend Schillinger doesn't seem to care for him that much, and no one's really that upset when he dies.
  • Pretty Little Liars: Alison DiLaurentis' behavior and antics have earned her the disdain of nearly everyone in Rosewood, and she has multiple enemies on the A-team that want her dead. By the time of season 5, the Liars themselves have gotten sick of her and wonder why they ever put up with her in the first place. Hell, even her own mother seems to hate her, to the extent that when she saw someone hit Alison over the head with a rock, she buried Alison alive to cover for her attacker.
  • Scrubs: Everyone at Sacred Heart hates Dr. Kelso in early seasons, to the extent that when Dr. Cox tricks everyone into thinking Kelso is dead in the episode "My Kingdom," their reactions range from indifference to joy. Deconstructed in his A Day in the Limelight episode, where it's revealed he sets himself up as a Hate Sink so the rest of the staff keeps busy hating him instead of getting into fights with each other. Subverted in the last season after his retirement, where everyone at the hospital greets him like a beloved grandpa when he comes around the hospital Coffee Bucks every day.
  • In the pilot episode of Sherlock the police are tipped off that there are drugs in Sherlock's flat. Every police officer that has had dealings with Sherlock volunteers to search the place and process any evidence.
  • Two and a Half Men:
    • No one likes Judith. Charlie, Alan, Berta and Herb don't like her, and even Jake doesn't seem to care for her much as he gets older. Even her own parents don't seem all that wild about her.
    • Alan himself is a spineless, passive-aggressive leech. No one likes him or has any respect for him, not even his own family (They do love him deep down, but they don't like him as a person.)
    • Evelyn is a narcissist of the highest order who has nothing nice to say about anyone. No one wants anything to do with her, to the point where they often hide when she drops by or refuse to answer the phone when she calls.
  • Victorious: Trina is despised by everyone on the show, a fact Jade has stated quite plainly a couple of times throughout the show. She was referred to as "talentless and irritating" in "Helen Back Again", while "Locked Up" demonstrates that her parents would be perfectly happy if Tori took her to Yerba and never brought her back (then again this was after Trina hit her father in the face with a golf club). In "Freak The Freak Out", her parents went to Santa Barbara for the sole purpose of avoiding her.

    Music 
  • The titular Earl of The Chicks song "Goodbye, Earl". An abusive, white trash scumbag that no one spares a thought to after he goes "missing" following his abused wife and her best friend poisoning him and dumping his body in the woods.
    Well, the weeks went by and spring turned to summer and summer faded into the fall
    And it turns out he was a missing person who nobody missed at all

    Professional Wrestling 
  • Disco Inferno/Disqo had eventually become this during the latter days of WCW. When not only the entire roster (Including his Filthy Animals stablemates), but even WCW employees are looking for a way to hopefully get you fired, you know you are this.

    Video Games 
  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown: Nobody has a good opinion of Colonel McKinsey. He’s a cowardly, and abusive Glory Hound, who constantly badmouths the Spare Squadron, and hoards their accomplishments for himself in the hopes that he’ll be transferred to a desk job. AWACS Bandog doesn’t like him either and will react with a deadpan response to his plane getting shot down by either the Eruseans or Trigger. Even Osea High Command doesn’t like McKinsey, for instead of giving him a desk job, they send him to the frontlines thanks to the accomplishments that he hoarded from Spare Squadron.
  • Annabelle (RPG Maker): With the sole exception of his wife, Melissa, and his brainwashed minions in Exorcism, everyone who knows Jason Sunray hates his guts. His daughter Annabelle despises him for molesting her, Melody Moonlight hates him for trying to separate her from her best friend, Tiffany Moonlight hates him for stealing her job, the orphans of The Church hate him for how he abuses them and tells them it's their fault, Father Martin despises being forced to do his dirty work, and other people who've heard of what he did to his daughter openly call him a monster.
  • Batman: Arkham Series:
  • Borderlands 2: Claptrap, for the most part, is disliked by everybody due to how annoying they find him to the point where nobody wants to even attend his birthday party.
  • BlazBlue: Yuuki Terumi is absolutely despised by virtually every character in-universe, many of whom want him dead. As it turns out, Terumi goes out of his way to cultivate this approval rating, partially because his very existence is tied to The Power of Hate, and partially just because he likes being a dick.
  • Bug Fables: The Wasp King is loathed and feared by all, and more than a few wasps hate him for being a tyrannical madman. Even his fanatically loyal troops are brainwashed into serving him, and once he dies and they go back to their old selves, none of them are sad to see him go.
  • Elden Ring:
    • The Dung Eater. Even the narrator in the game's opening despises him, as the player's very first introduction to him is seeing him being hung & stoned in the game's opening with the narrator essentially spitting out the phrase "loathsome Dung Eater". You eventually learn why; he's a Serial Killer infamous for routinely Desecrating the Dead in a manner so vile the souls of his victims can't reincarnate or move on. Which is exactly his goal. In fact, the player's very first encounter with him is him threatening to do the same to them leaving very few inclined to actually do his questline and not just kill him on sight at the earliest opportunity.
    • Shabriri is described as "the most reviled man in history". Consider everything about the Dung Eater, and then realize that this guy is considered even worse. Shabriri is the champion of the Three Fingers and the Frenzied Flame, whose goal is to "let chaos take the world" by overthrowing the Golden Order. There is even a talisman you can obtain called "Shabriri's Woe", the only effect of which is to make all enemies even more aggressive towards you. Literally everyone and everything you can encounter, from people to animals to plants, hates him so much that carrying around his trinket makes them want to kill you even more than they already did.
    • Preceptor Selvis is a more minor example, as he's far less infamous than the above two; however, everyone who knows the man hates his guts- which is understandable, as his magic specialty is centered around turning humans into his puppets (a fate so horrible, the narrative even gives Dung Eater a modicum of sympathy if you inflict it on him), and he's heavily implied to make sexual use of them. Ranni only keeps him around because his puppetry magic was absolutely necessary for her plans, and the minute she doesn't (and when she learns of his plans to make her a puppet), she kills him off.
  • Five Nights at Freddy's:
    • William Afton is despised by nearly every character in the series: the Cassette Man (or Henry) for killing his daughter and his horrific experiments; the Puppet who brought the animatronics to life as vengeance for her death; even his own son Michael Afton went after him when he tricked him into getting scooped and bodyjacked. The only one who seemed to care for him was his daughter Elizabeth, but the events of Pizzeria Simulator imply that he was grooming her into becoming a killer.
    • In Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach, children are terrified of the Daycare Attendant. Sun is much too eager to play and doesn't seem to understand that grabbing and forcefully dragging children around is a bad thing; Moon meanwhile is an overly antagonistic jerk who traumatizes children who stay up past their bedtime.
  • God of War: Kratos gets this, in part due to the various atrocities he committed under Ares; in the first game, one character is actually more terrified of Kratos than of the monsters attacking him and openly states he would rather die than let Kratos save him. After becoming the new God of War, it's stated that all of the other Olympians despised Kratos and refused to accept him. Fear of being rejected for his atrocities is what initially led to Kratos hiding his past from his son Atreus.
  • Hitman (2016):
    • Claus Hugo Strandberg, the primary target of "A Gilded Cage", is not just hated by the entirety of Morocco for stealing billions of dollars from them, but he's one of the most hated men in the world at present. The Swedish consulate workers are disgusted by him refuging there, the masseur doesn't want to go near him, and his own daughter (who he conned out of her inheritance) is part of the protest mob outside the consulate. Even his employer, Providence, intends to have Strandberg killed during his evacuation and have already taken the money he stole for himself back.
    • Wen T'sai, the Food Critic. If you amplified every detestable aspect of Strandberg, then you'd be about half-way there to his personality. At least Strandberg tries to be charming to people, but this guy? He complains about a waiters aftershave ruining the restaurant atmosphere, the chef in the kitchen despises him and wishes he'd choke on his tie, and Wen constantly critiques the food without eating it! He's an extremely petty shell of a man who can get enraged really easily over slights people may not even be able to control. At least Gabriel Santos, another Elusive Target that ran before him that was also horrible to his own staff, is Laughably Evil by being a Large Ham parody of Gordon Ramsay (and even Santos wants nothing to do with this guy, saying the mere sight of him in his restaurant could make him, in his own words; "F***ING S**T MYSELF"). Here, Wen has no redeeming qualities to speak of, and sounds like an insufferable bastard if you listen to his attacks on the staff for even a minute, making it all the more satisfying for the player to eliminate him.
  • Hypnospace Outlaw: Zane is disliked by every member of Teentopia for being a massive bully. He does have an admirer in the form of his girlfriend, but taking a quick look at her headband ID reveals that she is a sockpuppet account created by Zane to make it seem like he's cooler than he actually is.
  • Injustice:
    • The Joker.
      • He's the first villain Superman kills, and for years, only Harley Quinn is sad he's gone. Tellingly, everyone else who objects to his murder is more concerned about Superman killing someone than the man he killed. Even in-universe, Damian Wayne and most of Gotham are glad he's dead. Hell, even Harley began to hate and move on from him to create her own destiny.
      • Years after his death, he's still in this territory. Clearly nobody, not even villains like Gorilla Grodd and Brainiac, hold a good opinion of him. The fact that he's indirectly responsible for the mess in the Injustice-verse doesn't help either. Heck, even his ex-moll Harley has come to despise him. Darkseid, the ultimate Big Bad of the whole DC universe, sees him as what he is as well.
    • Everyone who had ties to the Regime has shades of this, but it's especially notable for a character like Wonder Woman. Her Lady Macbeth relationship with Superman and her actions in the Regime have left her exiled and disgraced from Themyscira, forced into hiding and hunted by her former allies in the Justice League, and worst of all, having her failures rubbed in her face by Cheetah and Harley. In turn, Diana is so world-weary and bitter that she's simply stopped caring about what other people think of her besides Superman. It seems she's very sensitive about him seeing her in a bad light.
    • Even Wonder Woman is nothing compared to Damian Wayne, who is easily the most obnoxious and loathsome character in the game's roster. Every character either despises him or only slightly tolerates him but still finds him awful, which includes his father and all of his Regime allies.
  • Jak 3: It's made clear that Count Veger is very much despised by the main cast for turning the public against Jak for his alliance with Krew (which is true) and destroying the Haven Palace (which is false), leading to his exile at the game's beginning. Karma bites him hard when Jak returns and reveals to Ashelin and the Freedom League that Veger attacked the palace, causing everyone to side with Jak and denounce Veger as a traitor, with Ashelin disvolving his council and banish him from the government in disgrace.
  • Meat Boy: Dr. Fetus is introduced with the caption "Nobody loves Dr. Fetus." He reciprocates.
  • Mortal Kombat:
    • Shang Tsung has the dubious honor of being the single most disliked and distrusted character in the entire 11 roster, and perhaps the entire series. Even when compared to Frost and Kano, the former being given certain pity and the latter having his clan, Shang Tsung has absolutely no friends and is viewed with scorn and wariness by just about every character.
    • Quan Chi's Outworld allies, including Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung, distrust and despise him, while his allies in the Netherrealm aren't fond of him either. Scorpion, Drahmin, and Moloch want to kill him for his treachery, Noob Saibot feigns loyalty and secretly wants to overthrow him, and Shinnok hardly acknowledges his sacrifice in Mortal Kombat X. Only the Netherrealm Revenants are loyal to him and that's only because they're under his influence.
    • By the time of the eleventh game, it's expressed through character banter that no one, not even the worst villains, trust or like Kano.
    • D'Vorah's only real allies outside the Kytinn seem to be Kronika-aligned warriors, and even they look down on her (Cetrion), or have reason to be absolutely furious with her (Shao Kahn). The heroic characters don't view her any more favorably themselves, with Kotal Kahn even mentioning Mileena pisses him off less than her.
    • Mortal Kombat 11: The Joker is a DLC for the game, and his character intros show that pretty much everyone in the MK universe (even the likes of Shao Kahn) despises him greatly.
    • Of all the characters in the MK roster, though, nobody, (and by that, we mean ABSOLUTELY NOBODY) likes Frost, who unlike The Joker, (who despite being absolutely loathsome, he manages to balance some of that out with his Evil Is Cool and Laughably Evil qualities), lacks all aspects to make her even a Love to Hate character at best. To elaborate, she's a petulant, psychopathic womanchild who wants to destroy the universe completely out of spite, demands everyone to worship her and/or give her attention, has turned countless innocent people into cyborgs and even wants to usurp the Big Bad herself, Kronika. It says something when even the vilest characters (including the completely, utterly, iredeemably evil ones) in the game (including Shang Tsung, Kano, Shao Kahn and even Kronika) hate her guts alongside all heroic kharacters, referring to her as a bratty whiner and treating her like an absolute joke, which makes performing all Fatalities on her absolutely satisfying and deviously rewarding.
  • Postal 2 has a difficulty setting called They Hate Me. If the game is played on this difficulty, every single NPC in the game will have Hard-Coded Hostility towards The Postal Dude and will try to kill him on sight.
  • Persona 5: After being framed by Shido for assault, Joker starts the game with pretty much everyone wanting nothing to do with him due to his "record": fellow students, teachers, police officers, his legal guardian in Tokyo, even his parents. In fact, he only makes his first friend after they're both nearly killed in the collective unconscious.
    • The Phantom Thieves, as a group, have a dynamic, in-universe approval rating on their fansite that updates each day. By the time you catch up to the present, it gets dangerously close to literally being at 0%.
  • Psychonauts: Vernon Tripe is disliked by the other kids because he's the most annoying kid at camp, to the point where none of the kids have commented anything on his Character Blog. Even Nils, who is disliked by virtue of being a perverted Casanova Wannabe, is somewhat liked by his on-and-off girlfriend Elka. Vernon doesn't really seem to notice the fact that he is disliked, however.
  • In Red Dead Redemption 2, practically everyone hates Micah Bell since he's a psychopath who needlessly antagonizes others and revels in unnecessary violence. The only reason he sticks around aside from Plot Armor is the fact that he manages to worm his way into gang leader Dutch's favor simply by being a Yes-Man towards an egomaniac.
  • Skyrim: Absolutely nobody likes the Thalmor, the High Elf fascists that weakened the Empire, made the worship of Talos illegal, and arrest and execute Nords on a whim in addition to pursuing The End of the World as We Know It. If you kill a Thalmor in an Imperial city, you'll only receive a small bounty for assault. If you kill a Thalmor in a Stormcloak city, the guards will place bets on how painfully you kill them.
  • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time: Penelope sells out the Cooper Gang to Le Paradox, and has full intentions of doing the same to him when given the chance, all out of ambition and jealousy. Her exposure leaves Penelope the most hated villain in Cooper history, with the main trio of Sly, Bentley, and Murray wanting to kill her for exploiting them. Le Paradox abandons her in the past for treachery.
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic: The Sith Emperor becomes this to both the Republic and the Sith Empire. When its revealed his ultimate goal is the devour all life in the galaxy, both sides will temporarily put aside their fighting to stop him.
  • Them's Fightin' Herds: Paprika is met with fear, confusion, or anger by nearly all of the other characters, including her own clan. With good reason. Though Paprika herself is completely oblivious to it.
  • Transformers: Devastation: All of the Decepticons have a universally negative opinion on Starscream, and even the Autobots poke fun at him, including Optimus himself.
    Optimus Prime: Megatron was right. You really ARE useless, Starscream.
  • Transformers: Fall of Cybertron: By the end of the game, Starscream is not only seen as an enemy by the Autobots, but the only Decepticons that might have had any faith in him as a leader were either killed by Megatron or abandoned him when they saw how much of a coward he was. Even Teletraan I doesn't like him, as one of its "Goodbye" phrases to the Combaticons is "You are unlikely to survive Starscream's leadership."
  • Trials of Mana: While Kevin is amused by Domperi's antics and Riesz tolerates him, even they have limits to what they can endure from his trolling. The other party members hate his guts, especially Charlotte.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles: Absolutely every single character who knows of the existence of Zanza regards him as completely and utterly evil and without a single redeeming quality. Not even his subjects try to defend him: they sidestep the issue altogether or are planning to stab him in the back the moment he looks the other way.

  • Dream SMP: Absolutely no one likes Schlatt, thanks to him being a petty, tyrannical President Evil and Control Freak on top of being a massive asshole; even his own allies despise him, with his Vice-President and ex-fiance Quackity shooting him after having enough of his abuse, and literally everyone else in his cabinet (excluding George, who's absent from the story) is a spy working against him.
  • GoAnimate: Any "baby show" characters (i.e. Caillou and Dora the Explorer) are widely disliked by everyone (including their parents) and deemed losers. Not entirely without reason, as those baby show characters are the main causes of conflict within their "Grounded" series.
  • The Most Popular Girls in School:
    • Nobody in Overland Park High School respects Rachel Tice (she even mentions that a teacher threw a rock at her once) as a result of her eating a roly-poly in the third grade. The only exception to this is Judith, who is just as unpopular.
    • Judith is considered the most unpopular girl in school (tying with her best friend Rachel Tice). There is a reason one of her spotlight episodes with Rachel is titled "The Least Popular Girls in School".
    • Jonathan "Than" Getslinhaumer isn't regarded with much affection, especially among the football team, because he's a gross pervert who likes to hit on the football players (to their dismay).
      Than: [sobbing] It's reasons like this you don't have any friends, Jonathan. [weeps] Reasons like this...
    • As of episode 70, Shay Van Buren's popularity has sunk after her video of her bad-mouthing people while drunk was released.
  • Object Overload: Boxing Glove isn't liked by the contestants, mainly because he is mistaken for a murderer.
  • Phelous: In his Bootleg Zones series, he portrays the Galaxy Warriors character Baltard (along with Baltard's many bootleg variants) as "the biggest loser on planet Ferror". The Baltard "race" is shown to be hated by everyone else in the "Galaxy Hole" universe, and in one sketch, the Amicable Herculean characters realized how pathetic they were when they realized even Baltard was getting into a club they couldn't enter.
  • Pokémon Rusty: By the end of the series, absolutely no one in the Kanto region likes Rusty and blames him for all of their problems (which is actually true).
  • Felix in Red vs. Blue is loathed by everyone; the Reds and Blues and the residents of Chorus despise him for manipulating them and trying to kill them all, his colleagues Sharkface and the Counselor and his men hate him for being an asshole, and his employer Hargrove just barely tolerated him. The closest thing he has to a friend is his partner Locus, and both men will readily admit to loathing each other, but Felix is able to keep Locus at his side through his charm, manipulation, and by exploiting his PTSD; when Locus learns that last bit, he readily leaves Felix in the lurch.
  • RWBY:
    • Adam Taurus was originally regarded as a hero and rising star within the White Fang. However, as the series progressed, his descent into extremist ideology and selfish obsession led to him burning his bridges with everyone. His abusive behavior drove away his love; he became a terrorist wanted for the attacks on both Beacon and Haven Academy; he alienated himself from Salem's faction by putting his own desires ahead of hers; his obsession with revenge turned all of Menagerie against him for trying to assassinate their chief just to spite his daughter, Blake; and the White Fang turned against him for abandoning his men to the Mistral authorities to save his own skin. In the end, all he has left is his life — and he wastes that by going after Blake in one final attempt at revenge.
    • As a Corrupt Corporate Executive who ruined the Schnee Dust Company's good name, on top of being an abusive Gold Digger, Jacques Schnee has earned himself the ire of virtually everyone in Atlas and beyond, to the extent he only wins the Atlas council election because he conspired with Dr. Watts to rig it in his favor. Even his own family doesn't care for him that much, with Weiss and Winter becoming a Huntress and joining the military respectively to get away from him.
  • SCP Foundation:
    • Everyone who interacts with SCP-056 ends up hating it because it shapeshifts into a better version of whatever looks at it and demands praise.
    • The unkillable Omnicidal Maniac SCP-682 hates everything alive and everything alive also seems to hate him back. Even the Foundation wants to kill him even though their normal policy is to keep anomalies only locked up and trying to kill him usually ends in disaster. According to one possible backstory, he was never well liked by his own kind and even own mate turned on him when he sabotaged humanity and as a result he was cursed with being unable to die while also having humanity desire his death. The only things that he does not have a mutual hatred with are non-living things such as artificial intelligences, and SCP-053, an immortal child who drives humans around her violently insane but for unknown reasons causes SCP-682 to calm down instead.
    • Herman Fuller, the Repulsive Ringmaster of Herman Fuller's Circus of the Disquieting ended up hated by everyone at his circus as he became more and more abusive and tyrannical. The final straw came when he tried to mind control the circus into eating a beloved member of the circus alive. For that the circus inflicted a Fate Worse than Death on him, twice. Having to constantly move around due to all the enemies he made in his life is also a major reason why he decided to start a travelling circus in the first place.
  • Vester And Friends has Link, Vester, Waluigi, King Dedede, and Woody have the title of the most hated people in Vesterland. Link due to his grating voice, Vester due to his laziness, Waluigi because they think his dancing stinks, and King Dedede and Woody are both hated by the other characters due to their Cloud Cuckoo Lander tendencies.

    Western Animation 
  • The Amazing World of Gumball:
    • As revealed in "The Finale," the Wattersons' various antics have made them rather infamous, or at least thought of poorly, throughout Elmore. By the end of the episode, the entire town is breaking into their house to get back at them.
    • Miss Simian is hated for being cruel and apathetic. Even Rocky the Mellow Fellow has admitted to hating her. The only person who loves her (and vice versa) is Principal Brown.
  • American Dad!: Roger's Ricky Spanish persona of the episode of the same name is universally despised by everyone in Langley Falls, and for good reason: he's committed such horrible crimes as defecating in the chest of a man undergoing open-heart surgery and stabbing Avery Bullock's wife to death on a whim. Hell, even Roger is terrified of him.
  • Beavis and Butt-Head: The title duo's constant antics and trouble-making have earned them the ire of just about everyone in Highland. Best shown in "It's a Miserable Life," where the supporting cast gets together to pray to God to make them go away, with Principal McVicker outright praying for their deaths, and in "Beavis and Butt-Head Are Dead," where they call in "dead" to get out of school; the reactions range from indifference to joy.
  • Big City Greens: Played with. As the series progresses, Chip Whistler manages to become loathed by the people of Big City. This began in "Feud Fight"; after realizing how pointless fighting is, Cricket decides to disarm himself and make a truce with him and even offering his friendship. Chip instead pelts Cricket with produce while chanting how he won, which disgusts all of the peasants and causes most of his employees to quit and many people give backlash to Wholesome Foods, as well as people recording this with their cellphones and uploading the video worldwide, giving more negative image to Wholesome Foods. He still suffers the consequences from this in "Reckoning Ball", with people still boycotting Wholesome Foods, but all of that hate is mostly aimed at Chip, and even his remaining employees don't respect him. It's heavily implied that his actions in "Friend Con" and "Chipocalypse Now" caused him to be more loathed by the people of Big City, enough to get banned from Big City. Despite this, it seems that some people are still okay with him, like his father (who tires to see the good in him), Wholesome Greg and Wholesome Rose (and yet, they have no respect for him), Officer Keys, his own dentist (only because he pays him lots to fix his teeth), the old lady he helps in "Friend Con", his bouncing squad or the peasants in "Chipwrecked", but this probably changed after "Chipocalypse Now".
  • There's quite a few who fit this trope on Bob's Burgers:
    • Owing to his awful personality, Jimmy Pesto's not very well-liked by the people who associate with him. Despite paying his rent on time, he's been known to annoy Mr. Fischoeder. A meat vendor he relied on in "They Serve Horses, Don't They?" admitted to Bob that he didn't like him and Pesto invites himself to his birthday party. Hugo Habercore and Chuck Charles associate with him due to their mutual hate for Bob, but they don't have much respect for him outside of that; Hugo admits to Bob he doesn't think highly of Jimmy's intelligence while Chuck is annoyed by Jimmy trying to take his mike to advertise his restaurant. And while his primary rivalry is with Bob, the rest of the Belchers are shown to dislike him as well (on the few occasions Jimmy interacts with any of them besides Bob). The only person who genuinely enjoys him is Trev, but even he has his limits and is a nicer person when his boss isn't around.
    • Almost nobody likes Guidance Counselor Philip Frond or respects him, including his fellow faculty members and teachers, and the students (especially Louise) dislike him along with many of the parents (Bob in particular hates him just as much as Louise). However, most of this dislike stems from the fact that he comes off as annoying, hypocritical and generally unpleasant. The only person who showed any interest in him at all was Gayle, and he screwed things up with her by cheating on her in "Lice Things Are Nice." His own mother doesn't even like his uptight behavior, and in her debut she outright asked him if he was 'joyless'.
    • Tammy's "friends" only tolerate her at best, even Jocelyn has her limits with her, the actual popular kids don't seem to even know her, Tina has been growing more and more hostile to her, and the rest of the Belchers despise her (Bob thinks she's an obnoxious drama queen, the usually-friendly Linda and Gene are impatient with her, and Louise loathes her with every fiber of her being). Being an obnoxious bitch to everyone you meet tends to get those kinds of results.
    • Hugo is despised by a lot of characters on the show as well. Linda dumped him for a reason, Bob reciprocates his animosity, the Belcher kids hate him as much as their parents do, and pretty much the only reason anyone even tolerates him is because he's in a position of (relative) power, being a health inspector.
    • Logan Bush is revealed to be hated by so many people at school that entire legions of women's sport teams - he bullied them all - don't mind dropping everything they're doing (on short notice) if it means they can hit Logan with snowballs. Not to mention that Louise isn't the only Belcher to dislike him, while Gene and Tina got along with him in Season 5 but this vanishes by his next two appearances, Linda hates him from the beginning, and Bob tolerates him to get a spot in the community garden but immediately gets rid of him when he sees how it's negatively affecting his relationship with Louise.
  • Bojack Horseman: In the final season, Bojack's celebrity status falls from "C-list TV has-been" to "so despised that he's being paid to let people digitally erase him from his own show" in the wake of revelations about his role in Sarah-Lynn's death.
  • Casper's Scare School:
  • Codename: Kids Next Door:
  • Eustace Bagge from Courage the Cowardly Dog is not liked by anyone at all due to his selfish, contemptuous behavior towards others (especially Courage), and as a result, most of the villains would often inflict some horrible fate on him whenever he would either refuse their commands or attempt to challenge them, knowing full well just how much more powerful they really are. The only character who truly likes him at all is Muriel, and even she would punish him for mistreating Courage regularly.
  • Craig of the Creek: By "Capture the Flag" it becomes clear Xavier has no real friends and no one on either side of the creek actually likes him. The kids of the Other Side only associate with him because he has candy or because he bullies them. In Maya's case, while she might have liked Xavier at some point, spending three years as his glorified lackey alienated every other friend she could've had. Maya doesn't associate with Xavier because she still likes him, she does it because losing him means she has no one. Kenneth and Craig put it best in that kids only want to be friends with the king, not Xavier.
  • Danny Phantom: Dark Danny is feared and hated by almost everyone in his timeline, both ghosts and humans, with only Fright Knight seeming to serve him willingly and even that is implied to be opportunistic in Knight's case rather than true loyalty.
  • Donkey Kong Country: Bluster Kong is hated by virtually everyone on Kongo Bongo Island for his Jerkass personality. In "Vote of Kong-Fidence," when running against DK for the position of future ruler of Kongo Bongo, the only vote he receives is his own; even his own mother voted against him.
  • Ed, Edd n Eddy:
    • While all of the Eds get the All of the Other Reindeer treatment from the other characters, it's often hinted that Eddy is the only one the cul-de-sac kids truly hate, and Ed and Edd/Double D would be liked more if they simply stopped hanging out with him. No better is this shown than in "For the Ed, by The Ed," where he runs against Plank in an election for King of the Cul-de-Sac... and only receives one vote, which was his own. Not even his own friends voted for him, with Double D voting against him (Ed had submitted the free cookie that he got from voting instead of an actual ballot).
    • The Kanker Sisters are hated by both the Eds and the other neighborhood kids alike. The former hates them for their atrocious Stalker with a Crush tendencies and the latter hates them for being horrible bullies to them, whenever they're not stalking the Eds.
  • Family Guy: Given Meg's Butt-Monkey status, not many people like her. Not even her own family (save for Brian, Depending on the Writer). Most of the characters insult her (especially Connie the Alpha Bitch) for things like her (supposed) ugliness. This depends on the episode, though; in a few episodes, she's shown to have a clique of equally nerdy and unpopular friends.
  • The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy: Mandy is disliked by nearly everybody who's had a rather unfortunate encounter with her due to her cruel, mean, and bossy attitude towards them, even her friends Grim and Billy don't really like her either. Best shown in "Keeper of the Reaper" where Billy calls up numerous side characters in the show to voice their negative thoughts about her, and it turns out that even Mandy's own parents don't particularly care for her. This is a given since she herself Hates Everyone Equally.
  • Harley Quinn (2019): While the public reviles Psycho for dropping Country Matters twice on live television, people who personally know him dislike him for being an asshole AND for being a misogynist. He's accurately described by the Cowled Critic as universally hated. By the end of Season 2, the rest of crew want nothing to do with him either, and pass him over when they come to break Harley out of Arkham.
  • Invader Zim:
    • Zim could give Red Skull a run for his money when it comes to this trope. Outside of GIR (and even then, GIR only likes Zim because of his stupidity), nobody likes the alien. This is mostly because of his utter insanity and incompetence, but also because he's a massive Doom Magnet and causes nothing but pain for everyone. Even GIR is shown to hate Zim in "Duty Mode" and the computer is quite snarky towards him. In addition, Zim is hated by his entire race, who often mock him behind his back, and the Tallest only made him an invader so that he would get out of their hair. Zim's also not well-liked on Earth (though he's a little bit better than Dib). Not that Zim is aware of this, of course.
    • Dib also gets no respect from anyone, especially his sister Gaz, and is widely hated by pretty much everyone. No one believes his claims that there is an alien on Earth because he is unanimously written off as a joke. It’s actually what makes him the perfect Arch-Enemy for Zim. Both of them vastly overestimate the importance of themselves and each other, while everyone else just avoids and ignores them.
  • Kaeloo: Nobody in Smileyland likes Pretty for her stuck-up attitude, not even Kaeloo.
  • King of the Hill: Cotton Hill. Just about everyone in Arlen hates and/or fears him, even his own son. Dale and Bill seem to have a modicum of respect for Cotton (the former probably due to his firearm frenzy, the latter for his service in WWII), but even they are scared silly of the man. Bobby is the only character that Cotton has a halfway decent relationship with, but even then, he is a horrible role model for Bobby.
  • Looney Tunes: A Running Gag in several cartoons is that Daffy Duck, no matter what he does or how talented he is, is always looked down upon by everyone whereas his rival Bugs Bunny has a 100% Adoration Rating and gets big rounds of applause for the smallest things he does. This ends up deconstructed in Looney Tunes: Back in Action, where the higher-ups use this as an excuse to fire Daffy when they get sick of his prima donna antics, only to find the cartoons bombing without him, since Daffy being such an unpopular Butt-Monkey is a large part of what makes them funny in the first place.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: By the final season, Queen Chrysalis, Lord Tirek, and Cozy Glow have become this; Queen Chrysalis has attempted to conquer Equestria several times (and was the only one of her kind to not reform), Tirek attempted to steal all the magic from Equestria, and Cozy Glow manipulated everyone around her in order to gain the "power" of friendship all for herself. Even they can't stand each other - They only team up to accomplish their mutual goals of conquest, and fully intend to part ways and rule their own territories after those goals are achieved. In the end, practically all of Equestria and its allies stand up against them, and cheer when the trio are handed their final punishment.
  • The Proud Family: Oscar Proud is a pathetic wimp whose arrogance and smart mouth have made him many enemies in the show, who often punish him with physical violence, ego-destroying insults or total humiliation. Even characters who are generally nice to everyone else tend to dislike Oscar (such as Suga Mama and Dr. Payne). Felix Boulevardez is more or less his Only Friend and while his family do love him, they don't always like him.
  • The Simpsons:
    • Lisa is a downplayed example compared to Meg Griffin, but this trope is still a plot point in several episodes. A recurring theme with episodes based on Lisa running for leadership always ends with Lisa losing the vote because of her low popularity. In "The Kid Is All Right", Milhouse tells her some of the kids do agree with her ideas, they just don't like her. Lampshaded in "Lisa Goes Gaga", where she's voted Springfield Elementary's least popular student:
      Homer: What's wrong with her?
      Bart: She just found out no one likes her. I thought she knew.
    • In "The Boys of Bummer", Bart becomes a pariah throughout Springfield as a result of losing a big baseball game. This culminates in an angry mob crowding around the Simpsons household, shouting, "BART SUCKS!" He gets in everyone's good graces again once he wins the game after he's allowed to play in it one more time.
    • Aside from Waylon Smithers, just about everyone in Springfield hates Mr. Burns. In fact, in one episode where he's thought to be dead, various people showed up at his funeral just to spit on his grave, to the extent that said grave had to be drained afterwards. In the two-part episode "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", it turns out that Everyone Is a Suspect, even Smithers.
  • The Smurfs:
    • Brainy Smurf is strongly disliked by everyone except Clumsy. Even the endlessly patient Papa Smurf is often annoyed by Brainy. In one episode, Brainy gets a We Want Our Jerk Back! reaction when he loses his usual personality, but after his personality is restored, he gets thrown out of the village once again.
    • Gargamel has a bad relationship with nearly everyone he interacts with, not just the Smurfs. Not even his cat Azrael and his apprentice Scruple respect him that much.
  • South Park:
    • Due to his revolting habits, rude personality, and being the biggest example of a Jerkass in all of Western Animation, just about everyone in South Park hates Eric Cartman's guts, including his own friends. In "Breast Cancer Show Ever," while he's afraid that nobody will think he's cool anymore after Wendy beat him up, the entire fourth grade class tells him point-blank that they never thought he was cool and couldn't possibly think any lower of him than they already do. Only Butters has any tolerance for him, and even he's admitted at times that he doesn't care for Cartman either.
    • By "The Problem with a Poo", everyone in South Park has come to loathe Mr. Hankey for his racism and refusal to take responsibility for his actions.
    • Pip was not popular among the kids at school (or even Chef). They would insult him, intentionally call him French even though he was British, and say, "Go away, Pip! Nobody likes you!" The only people who treated him well were Dougie, Butters, and occasionally Stan.
    • Everyone turns on Stan by the end of "Butterballs" for his failed anti-bullying campaign that ended up causing Dr. Oz to sue South Park Elementary and make everyone involved look like hypocrites.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants:
    • For constantly trying to run the Krusty Krab out of business, as well as his Jerkass personality even when he's not being openly villainous, Plankton is despised by virtually everyone else in the show. In "F.U.N." and "The Algae's Always Greener", he's outright referred to as the "most hated thing/creature in Bikini Bottom." Only SpongeBob and Karen, his computer wife, really like him, and even that varies Depending on the Writer.
    • Squidward has a mutual hatred towards almost everyone in Bikini Bottom due to his Grumpy Bear Jerkass personality. Mr. Krabs constantly argues with him, Gary is implied to maul him on a regular basis in "The Thing", and everyone else considers him a talentless loser. "Squid Plus One" also shows that he has no friends (he makes two friends in the episode, Norton and Larry the Lobster; he angrily ditches the former for badmouthing clarinets and ends up pissing off the latter for badmouthing protein shakes). Only SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy are consistently shown to like him, and even they've shown some degree of annoyance towards him at times (e.g. Squidward taking advantage of SpongeBob's generosity in "Can You Spare a Dime?").
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The clone troopers that Krell commands hate him for being a terrible commander and a colossal asshole, and that hatred is so strong that they refuse to comply with his orders to execute Jesse and Fives for insubordination. Literally only one clone is genuinely loyal to him, and Krell loses Dogma, that one genuine follower, when he laughs at him for being an easily-manipulated boob.
  • Tangled: The Series: Zhan Tiri. Considering she seeks to bring upon destruction and genocide, this is probably to be expected. In "Plus Est en Vous", all of Corona, especially Eugene and Varian, rise up against her, and she more than returns the favor by attempting to murder them all.
  • Tom and Jerry: The former half of the titular duo is hated on by just about everyone in the show, including his owners, and the characters who actually are his friends vary from being his friends to his bitter rivals to even flat-out bullies towards him. You'd be hard-pressed to find a single episode of the entire series where a character actually teams up with Tom during his rivalry with Jerry instead of against him.
  • Total Drama:
    • The cast of every season hates Chris McLean, but none more so than the first generation cast, many of whom are just sick of him and want absolutely nothing to do with him and the show in general anymore. The only reason they don't just quit is because of a contractual obligation.
    • Due to Heather's heinous actions throughout Island—as pointed out by Izzy in Action, none of the other contestants (except for Harold, the only one initially willing to actually give Heather a chance) actually like or trust her. And as shown in the video message she gets from home, not even her own family seems to like her that much, as her parents are shown celebrating her absence (even going so far as to have all the stuff in her room moved out while she's gone). Lampshaded in the fourth World Tour Aftermath episode when the hosts are discussing the final three contestants:
      Bridgette: ♪There's Heather, she's an ice queen / But she's been playing hard!♪
      Geoff: ♪Too bad everybody hates her, she'd have to pay a bodyguard!♪
    • Courtney is considered to be one of the most hated contestants, considering how she treated the others and the number of times she betrayed those who are willing to put up with her. This is best shown at the end of "Sundae Muddy Sundae" where after her deception is revealed to the others, she gets No Sympathy from almost anyone when she's flushed down.
    • None of the characters seem to care for Scott due to his wicked actions during Revenge of the Island. He is also one of the few contestants to not have any friends or allies (though he does start a relationship with Courtney in All-Stars). Lampshaded in "Brains vs Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown" when Chris explains that they had to put Scott inside the trauma chair so he can survive after being mauled by Fang; he states that who cares because it's Scott, and everyone starts laughing.
  • The Transformers: None of the Decepticons are willing to tolerate Starscream and are not keen on seeing him in place of leadership over Megatron. This is because, for all of the latter's faults, Megatron himself is fairly effective and powerful leader, unlike the cowardly and ineffectual Starscream. In the movie, when Starscream actually won a leadership fight and was crowned the leader of the Decepticons, only to get killed during the coronation, the Decepticons immediately accepted his killer, Galvatron (who is actually Megatron himself), as their leader, and none were sad to see him go.
  • Wakfu: The Traitor Qilby officially has this when Shinonome says he's gone too far. He's universally despised by their extended siblings and the surviving Eliatrope children for engineering the massacre of the Eliatrope people and for orphaning the children in the process, and Yugo is unconvinced his Driven to Madness motivations mean he should feel any sympathy for him.
  • Xiaolin Showdown: Jack Spicer is the show's Butt-Monkey and Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain who is hated by nearly everyone. The villains consider him to be pathetic and while he does have the chance to make several alliances throughout the show (his two alliances with Wuya when she was a ghost being the ones that lasted the longest), he's never exactly respected and almost all the alliances end with him being betrayed. The heroes don't like him any better, being on opposite sides and all, but while Omi is eager to give him a chance at redemption, even he engages in bullying Jack when the other monks do the same. And then there's Good Jack, who they consider even more annoying than the regular one.
