Tropes and Audience Reactions about characters or other parts of a work that the audience absolutely hates.

It's not enough for the audience to Love to Hate them, they have to Hate to Hate them. Unlike Hate Sinks, Scrappies aren't hated for performing heinous deeds, but because they make the work worse whenever they appear. The hatred is so baked into the definition of these tropes that it's impossible for a single viewer to both like a character and believe it's a Scrappy of any kind.
