I have no idea what trope that's supposed to describe. Cut it.
Found this on Echoes: Naruko is becoming one. Mainly because she plays every Naruto cliche the author is trying to Deconstruct straight.
"Is becoming" means "isn't yet". Cut.
Baldur's Gate lists Nalia and Jan Jansen. From my experience in the BG fandom, they certainly have their detractors, but I think they have enough proponents as well to merely qualify as Base Breaking Characters. I don't know if they were Scrappies at some point, but I don't feel like they qualify at this stage.

I think I've mentioned them before, or I was just considering it. Anyway, I agree. While not conclusive proof or anything, I know there's an extensive mod for romancing Nalia, and it's reasonably popular. But on the whole, I'm not sure any character has such a distinct hatedom to qualify even as a Base-Breaking Character. The vast majority of players simply ignore characters they're not interested in. Jan is one of those.
I can maybe see a case for Anomen, though, since pretty much everything I've seen about him is negative. And yet, he's still got some redeeming (in the eyes of the community) traits, in particular after his personal quest.
Ellesime's entry is full of weasel words.
Noober is supposed to be annoying, so he doesn't qualify.
Anomen and Jan are also listed as Base-Breaking Character, which probably needs some cleaning as well.
This was added back to TheScrappy.Western Animation:
This fails to explain why he's unintentionally hated. 363 is listed under Hate Sink which note they got decommissioned.
I PM's the troper who added it gave the go ahead to remove.

Bringing up this example from Charmed (2018):
"Shaping up" means not yet. Cut.
Isn't the show also just barely out? We should probably wait for a bit to make sure the reactions aren't kneejerk.

Cut this from ElfQuest for not providing context: Scouter. Apparently few in the fandom would grieve if Dewshine and Tyleet just smothered him to death one night.
This character from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) sounds more like a Base-Breaking Character: Franklin for his morbid personality, incessant bitching, and just being The Load in general. Yes, he's handicapped, but that doesn't excuse him acting like a Jerkass so often.

That's Base-Breaking Character, replace.
YMMV.Fallout New Vegas
None of this explains why they are unintentionally hated. Marjorie and Alexander don't seem unintentional since you can kill them. Cut?

According to Septimus Heap Reality TV does not apply to No Real Life Examples, Please!.

Here's more I've found.
Inaho is listed as a Base-Breaking Character on the YMMV.
I might not get to cutting them myself right away, so that duty is up for grabs if the decision that they should be cut is made.

Sergey I'm not sure about, but the example doesn't explain enough.
What the hell is wrong with that Mahoromatic example? It's one of the worst-written examples I've seen in a long while.
Shikijo's example is at best too weak to stay without a rewrite, but as it is it definitely should go.
Kaizuka Inaho I'm doubtful about. The example might be salvaged, but it seems like it's written from a "least favourite character" perspective, rather than "most hated".
I'm pretty sure Leonardo has plenty of fans.

Found these while searching for woobie entries to purge:
CSI: Kevin, "Hitting for the Cycle". How on earth did he get hired? He bites the dust at the end of the episode.
Not enough context, and what's there's too weak.
Found this on TheScrappy.Final Fantasy:
I only recently got into FF and I'm not involved in the fandom, so maybe this is totally accurate, but I thought it was Lightning that people didn't like? This entry is saying that Serah is the one that people have a problem with, and they want Lightning back.
The entry also doesn't do a good job of explaining why Noel is considered a Scrappy. People don't like him because... he exists, I guess?
I know the FFXIII trilogy is... divisive, to put it lightly, but perhaps both sides of these are just Vocal Minorities, and most people are fine with all three characters? I know I am.

Broken Base might be true, but The Scrappy plainly isn't. There are lots of fans of all characters. Final Fantasy is just so huge, but the people with the most extreme opinions are the ones that are usually heard.
The examples for Final Fantasy XV on that same page also give me pause. It says they're listed mostly for not having enough screentime, and some of them seem more like thinly-veiled complaining. One of them even says that most people forgot the character in question even existed; that doesn't sound like hatred to me.
I know XV is divisive like XIII, but not to the extent that XIII is, and it's mostly just because it's no longer Versus XIII, a game that nobody got to play and everybody's just assuming would've been flawless and amazing.

Yeah, if it says people forgot about the character, I'd say it's actively a disqualifier for The Scrappy. Or Base-Breaking Character.
One for the Baldur's Gate subpage: Abdel Adrian's been listed for some time on the YMMV page, but not on its Scrappy page. It seems like basically a formality, I've never seen a positive appraisal of the guy, but I feel I oughta clear it here anyway.
The current listing on that page, for the record, is as follows:

Yeah, from all I've heard, he's the single most hated character in the entire franchise. Possibly including the native DnD.
Besides being a Wall of Text, I see nothing suggesting the hate is unintentional. Any objections to cutting?
Edited by Ferot_Dreadnaught on Nov 10th 2018 at 7:24:23 AM
Here's the Scrappy tree over at Criminal Case:
Someone forgot to mention to the relevant editors that hating these characters is the Intended Audience Reaction. Therefore I'm deleting it. Just posting here as a formality.
No objections. Cut away.

I had to put this here as it's getting too big and I'd like to discuss which would make the cut or not. This is from Fate/Grand Order
I am wondering which one should stay and which ones should go.
