This is going back a bit but the minor character Leslie Arzst from Lost season 1. I wanted to know more about him because the show was doing such a good job exploring its characters at that time.

i think having a neckbeard type design in a cutesy game is really funny, he's such a silly little dude

Why is he hated?

>neckbeard type design
Is the design why this character is hated? I admit I haven't been paying much attention to Animal Crossing stuff.

Basically every single member of the Guilty Remnant cult in HBO's show The Leftovers. But specifically Laurie, she didn't deserve all the hate she got in season one. All of them are good characters that deserved more love. Except Meg. Fuck Meg.

Oh most definitely
A lot of the hate she gets is just straight up misogyny
When I started watching BB I sympathized with Walter because of his situation, so Skyler came off (to me) as annoying for not being more understanding and open-minded. But as it became clear that he was a selfish piece of shit who was only obsessed with protecting his "pride" (masculinity) and cared more about that than his own family and friends, I realized that he had always been in the wrong, ever since he refused to get help at the beginning, and Skyler couldn't be blamed for just wanting to protect those around her.
All the hate she gets should be for that piece of human garbage Walter. I'm sorry Skyler, at the time I had no idea that Breaking Bad had a villain protagonist.

>>22950
I blame Araki's rule of not bringing up characters from previous parts too much.

Anonymous 22956

Skylar is cleverly written as the villain directed at the audience. The audience wants to see Walter make drugs and do bad stuff and she does her best to prevent it. People don’t want that as it would make a boring tv show. Of course only insane people would act like Walter in real life and most people would be more like Skylar (much as they pretend they’re a Walter).

Dumb moids don’t realise all of this and get way too heated about her.

He appeared out of nowhere but all the other characters acted like they knew him and he'd been there all along. Plus he had an abrasive personality. He died pretty quick and in retrospect it was obvious they were just introducing a character to kill off.

I really agree he did the most natural thing he could do. I think he has the right, and the right to be prickly as well.

Anonymous 23010

it was very creepy how obsessed some moids got with hating her. it's like they projected too much into Walter so anything that got in the way of their ego trip.

and something else I noticed: they also are hellbent on saying it's not misogyny despite constantly using misogynistic slurs, hating on her for her "horse face", not being completely subserviently towards Walter, among other things. it's really interesting.

Before Gou, I know she was quite hated. I would see people call her a "spoiled brat" and even say things as vile as that she deserved to die, because of that. Not sure what part of living only with another little girl in a abandoned shelter.. that she helps with cooking and shoppping, still makes her a "spoiled brat". I don't know many other little girls living that independently. People would refuse to acknowledge her character development.

I'm not sure if Gou has made her more or less disliked (I dropped it because I didn't like it), but she has arguably been through more than any of the other main characters and has still stood strong after it.

Gou made her both more popular and more hated. I do like Satoko even after Gou. I can understand why people would dislike Gou Satoko but pre-gou Satoko is just an abused kid struggling with life.

Anonymous 25167

>>25162

Pre-Gou Satoko clearly cared about her other friends too, not just Rika. The way they decided to make her all yandere and like a protagonist out of some cliche revenge-ge visual novel is cringe imo. I think part of it might have just been to yuribait people with SatoRika.

It felt like this "undid" her mental and emotional development. Wouldn't be surprised if Ryukishi07 made her that way in Gou, because he knew how disliked Satoko is, and wanted to troll the few fans that have liked her even more. Or he doesn't even like her, himself.

Anonymous 25172

>>25167
I can understand Satoko having attachment and possession issues to an extent. Her abuse from Teppei, losing her parents and her brother, and then she feels like she's losing Rika… I feel like going through things like that makes you want to keep the people you do have close because you're afraid of being left again.
Perhaps I'm projecting though.
Of course she went too far and is very selfish to poor Rika. I really hate how Gou is just SatoRika fest and none of the other characters get anything too.

I'm pretty sure Ryukishi said somewhere that Satoko is his favorite and he wanted to expand on her character more, but I think he just wanted money. I think that man is both a terrible and amazing writer somehow.

Female characters from Naruto had so much potential but yeah the author just doesnt know how to write any of them like many men in the industry.
I mean generally female characters have a lot of potential but just get wasted. Its like trying to make them annoying became a contest. Who will write the female character who gets the most hate?

just bc something is popular doesnt mean its good. euphoria is very popular and it sucks, it only has good aesthetics.

naruto has a good recipe for a popular manga. i really enjoyed the first season myself. but yes many characters are badly written especially females. its also a part of childhood for many adults and young adults so its not just that people like it, its also because the manga and anime bring good childhood memories to people.

the action and the trope are great tho. its mostly characters that are badly written and or annoying. but many have great character designs, also theres a lot of diversity, i think pretty much anyone can find a character they really like or even relate to in naruto. it makes them iconic in some way

Honestly I don't know what even counts as a hated character anymore.
Since we're on the topic of AOT, I really like Mikasa, but most people I've talked to absolutely hate her.
That being said, she always ranks high on popularity polls and shit like that so I don't know what she is.

Chizuru Sakaki from Muv-Luv.

She might start off as a pretty big bitch, but her route in MLE shows that's a way to hide how emotionally vulnerable she is due to her messed up past. Her mother was a ho and almost causes her to become one too. But she's very hard-working and determined, so she still avoids that path.

Doesn't get enough respect as a character imo.

i wouldnt say she is hated but she definitely gets the most shit out of most people who watched the series, they call her weak, useless and boring.
i think she is a very sweet and positive girl with a lot of inner strength and courage to challenge the way things are bending the laws of the universe itself for her wish. she might not leave a strong immediate impression like the other characters but she is far from plain too, and her character design is super cute. i love her so much :)

Makima haters who hate on her just for being a villain are weird. Are these people only able to enjoy morally white characters who only do good or what?
Yeah she does horrible things and she's a horrible person, so what, people can still like her as a character.
I also know Makima would be 10x more popular if she was a man.
I've seen people hate on Makima because she's a horrible person but then love Sephiroth and Johan hmmm I wonder why
The world is not ready for female antagonists but I will always love them

In your standard anime villains would be just ambiguously evil: yes, they would cause suffering, but either of noname people out there, or reversible
So I think she is hated because there are beloved characters from the main cast are tortured and killed forever

Oh my God, same. I could understand if she had some sort of agency or malice, but they go to lengths to show she doesn't. She was picked up and groomed by people who zeroed in on a suicidal loner who later threw her into the trash the second they finished using her.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest came out like 30 years before the modern internet, so people in general were less retarded. Also, I feel like it makes a difference that Skylar is meant to seem annoying more than evil, which generates a more viscerally angry response from people.

Anonymous 27236

She is one of the strongest characters and has had great action sequences so I guess that's why she's pretty popular. There's no actual reason to hate her, she's only a victim of bad writing cause her personality is being the edgetard mc bodyguard. I got my hopes up when the Ackermans purpose of existing was brought up because I thought she would find a way to overcome that and be her own person, but in the end Isym was like "she just loves Eren that bad lol"

Nah, Ratchet was very condescending and unreasonable, and she leaves a much worse impression than Skyler does as a result. Moids just project as Walter.

Anonymous 27290

>>27282
Ratchet's a character I don't necessary like but I still believe the visceral hatred of her is because she was a woman ruining a man's fun. I mean, I get the point of the story and it's not as literal as I'm interpreting it. But he is a statutory rapist who put mentally ill people in danger, constantly disrupted their treatment and antagonized the staff and for what- baseball games and hookers? I'm supposed to fucking root for him? I hated him immediately. Obviously the movie doesn't take the patient's issues seriously and mental illness is not genuinely relevant to the plot but I just can't hate Rachet the same way everyone else does when even the tiniest bit of real life logic applied to the story makes the protagonist even less sympathetic or likeable.

I think you misinterpreted the book. You're meant to root for his actions because the other characters in the story aren't mentally ill, they are just different. Some are voluntarily committed because they are afraid of society. For example, Harding is gay and Billy has a stutter and is probably a bit autistic. They aren't even allowed to go outside, there are bars on the windows. They give them medicine that inhibits their brains so they sit in the fog all day. They can't even have t.v, and their group therapy sessions consist of them being pinned against each other to dissuade them from connecting with each other and going against Ratchet. There's even an anonymous forum for them to fill out each others' faults and bad actions/words. Also yes, she practices lobotomy.
