“Hated” characters that you like Anonymous 22908

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.

Anonymous 22916


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

Anonymous 22917

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.

everytime i see people hate her it hurts personally

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.

I wish Araki would have gone deeper into the 'Dio's son' angle tbh. Would have been fun to see him being more of a cunning little shit like his dad.

Though I do wish she got at least a little less childlike-insane as she got older.

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.

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.

Anonymous 23003


Sasuke did nothing wrong.

Anonymous 23007

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.

Anonymous 23008

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.

Anonymous 25110


Haters will deny it, but she was the real main character.

Anonymous 25111

Speaking of which, recently I happened to find a list of "top 10 worst waifus in anime" (retarded scrotey) and one of them was Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball, the author of the list compared her and the hate she gets to Skyler.

Anonymous 25122


you are so fucking right. its not her fault that an old japanese man couldn't write women characters. love her.

also fucking correct. i dont like itachi, and i think sasuke should have gotten reparations for the genocide on top of getting to execute the government officials that ordered the attack

This is not even based. Worst character arc ever. He deserved closure / healing. Idk why saying that is extreme

Anonymous 25134

who are you referring to, itachi or sasuke?

Anonymous 25147


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.

Anonymous 25148

Wow he really takes that well

Tsumugi from the same series. A lot of people dislike her for being plain or boring, but I like that about her because her free time events telling how she's so plain she constantly gets ignored feel relatable to me in a way.

Anonymous 25157


Anonymous 25162

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


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

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?

Gabi from Attack on Titan. Places like r/titanfolk viscerally hate her for some reason.

Worldbuilding for toddlers.

Anonymous 25546

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

Anonymous 25557

Really ? i had the opposite impression from that subreddit. Back when I used to lurk she had a lot of fans.

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.

I love this idiot, but I couldn't keep reading after she proposed to her boyfriend instead of breaking up with him.

On the other hand, I hate Mr. Gye from "Let Me Stay Over Tonight" and mentally refer to him as a future wifebeater. Yet everyone loves him.

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.

Anonymous 27186


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 :)

Haven't read muv luv yet but she seems hot I would let her shoot me

I’ve never seen any hate towards her honestly but imo she kind of gets outshined by other characters since she takes a very passive role most of the time. She’s still a really endearing characters and her role is vital to the show

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.

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"

I remember feeling so excited to talk about her and her route after finishing the visual novel. That's when I found out just how hated she was. I never really knew anything about her before I played it, you only really used to see Saber or Rin back in the day. I'm glad she got more love after the movies at least.

Anonymous 30010

I know nothing about Fate but I've only seen this character in particular get a lot of love. Only seen her get hate from moids because iirc she gets raped right? Seen her get the typical used good hate for that but those opinions aren't worth listening to anyway

Anonymous 30023


She's one of the kindest members of the P3 cast and I'm tired of pretending she's not. Yeah she isn't everyone's cup of tea and has made some wrong decisions because she's 16yo and has every mental illness ever, but she is a genuinely good person and I will defend Yukari with my life. Sucks that people only bring her up to either call her a bitch or to throw her into ship wars.

Anonymous 30025

Yeah this is me going back maybe 8 years ago or something. These days she does get more love because of the movies. But, back when it was just the visual novel and original anime, it was impossible to talk about her without someone starting shit. You're right in that it is mostly moids though, and for that reason.

I'm not sure about the rape part being the main issue since Kohaku from Tsukihime is also a rape victim dark heroine who did lots of heinous stuff and she's always been a fan favorite since forever.
Kohaku was often seen topping charts whereas Sakura got the short end of the stick being the only heroine not to make it to the top 3 of the first popularity poll and instead being 6th place, which is an absolute embarrassment for a VN with 3 heroines total.
I personally REALLY dislike her because I find her super boring and her implementation in the story feels really manipulative.
"Listen, I know she was absent for 2/3s of the game, but LOOK, her entire backstory is pure misery porn to a cartoonishly laughable degree. SEE? DON'T YOU FEEL BAD FOR HER? DON'T YOU FEEL GUILTY FOR IGNORING HER ALL THIS TIME? YOU SHOULD THROW AWAY EVERYTHING YOU BELIEVE IN TO PROTECT HER."
"Not sold yet? How about a weird, out of character scene where Taiga acts creepy talks about how frigging huge Sakura's tits are? Don't you like that?"
"Fuck, fine, if that doesn't do it, how about giving her the most amount of sex scenes in the game? Come on, YOU GOT TO LIKE HER after this one."
It also doesn't help her character that she spends like half the route being possessed by the literal antichrist, stripping agency away from her. Honestly, one the biggest issues is probably that she's a charisma vacuum, making her interactions with Shirou near unbearable since he's also really uncharismatic.

Sorry for ranting or for coming across as mean, but I had this in my head for a while and I think it may give you an idea on why a lot of people can't stand her at all.

Anonymous 30057


I've only read Tsukihime and love Kohaku so I'm biased, I'd only be really able to compare if I read Sakura's route. One day I will, and I'll think of you anons here lol. What do you think the main reason is that Kohaku gets way less hate?
Tsukihime popularity poll after the remake just for fun.

>What do you think the main reason is that Kohaku gets way less hate?
I can think of several:
One of the reasons has to do with her personality, Kohaku has a really upbeat and fun front while hiding a more sly, witty and creepy side under the hood. Sakura is either a "pure cinnamon roll too pure for this world yara yara" or a dumb turbo yandere murderer.
Everything Kohaku does is out of her own volition, unlike Sakura who, again, is LITERALLY being possessed by the actual source of all evil who is draining all her life force, and spends half the route either bedridden or being almost completely insane.
Kohaku's traumatic backstory is way less extreme than Sakura's, which is so absurdly miserable that it genuinely makes you wonder how this girl even manages to live a normal life with friends, club activities and such. Near the end of the route Sakura blurts out that her family even put poison in her food sometimes just to make her suffer more on top of all the other shit they did to her, which got a actual laughter out of me simply because such cartoonish levels of torture porn cross into the realm of parody, it became impossible for me to take it seriously.
There's also the fact that, unlike Shirou, Shiki doesn't have to throw away all his personal beliefs and ideals to get together with Kohaku.
Another big reason is probably that Kohaku is just oddly charismatic whereas Sakura seems to bore most people.
I apologise again to the Sakuraposter if I come across as a bit too harsh.

Anonymous 30079

Sakura poster here. Honestly your reasons for not liking her are totally valid, so I'm not offended or anything. It's when people's reasons for not liking her are based on her lack of virginity that bores the fuck out of me.
I guess I've always had a thing for anti-heroes or characters with a dark side, which is what drew me to her. I completely agree that some of it was OTT, but I was much younger when I first read the VN so it was "new" to me at the time.
It's like when I try to read/watch similar stuff now, I find myself getting bored because it's no longer something I've not already experienced if that makes sense?

yeah i think the hate the fandom has for him is over the top. he wasn't evil, he was just struggling with awful circumstances.

Anonymous 30134

I think main reason why people hate him is the way he acted in EoE, where his reluctant nature and cowardice was at its peak, which indirectly led to the death of at least two prominent characters.
