No Sympathy For This Index

Go To

Not everyone in fiction can be an Ideal Hero or a Breakout Character. Stories generally have someone to dislike, most characters require flaws, and stories usually have moral leanings.

These are tropes creators use to ensure the audience knows who and what not to sympathize with. If used on accident, they might lead a character into Unintentionally Unsympathetic or The Scrappy territory.

This list is not an Index of Hated Characters, which is about characters' reputation in-universe.
