He's NOT The Scrappy?

Take THAT, world famous Scrappy!

We all have those characters whom we hate, dislike, can't stand, find it hard to tolerate, or just plain do not care about whatsoever, even though we're asked to. This character is called The Scrappy. It's a subjective trope on the TV Tropes wiki because it's meant to name characters who are reviled by the majority of the works' fanbase, but not universally. Not every single person can hate a certain Scrappy, nor do they have to. One person's Scrappy can be another's Ensemble Darkhorse, Woobie, or even favorite character. It's a phenomena that makes the realm of fiction that much better when it comes to having opinions. My opinion? First I've got to post the definition as defined by TV Tropes:

Popular characters have fandoms. But sometimes, there is a character who has a hatedom. We'll
call this guy The Scrappy, or more formally the Fan Unfavorite. While much usually depends on the execution, certain kinds of characters have a much higher probability of being hated. In addition,
if the writers begin relying too heavily on an already-present character with some potentially annoying quirks (like The Unintelligible or the Non-Human Sidekick), the viewers may begin to find him/her very annoying indeed. Sometimes even a very popular character is at risk of becoming a Scrappy when he or she wears out his or her welcome by being overexposed.

Occasionally, a character intended as a Butt Monkey will backfire and become a Scrappy, too.
This usually happens when a writer attempts to make his mishaps even funnier by making him an unlikeable person to whom it's very satisfying to see horrible things befall. A great idea, but sometimes it backfires when the Butt Monkey becomes so annoying that whatever happens to him in the story, audiences are haunted by the feeling that it will never be enough. An especial risk when the Butt Monkey gags are prolonged, after which even a character who's not inherently unlikeable can stop being funny and become a Damsel Scrappy. It also comes full-circle in a way; note also that many Scrappies can easily become Butt Monkeys when touched upon in fan discussions and literary parodies. In any given Hate Fic, and even in the occasional straight-upFanfic, the author may very likely go a step further than making The Scrappy into the Butt Monkey, killing him or her off (often brutally), or giving a "hero" Scrappy a Face Heel Turn so he becomes the villain; after which he again will likely be killed off. Strangely, at the other end of the spectrum lies another common scrappy, the Author Avatar. Unlike a Butt Monkey, they lack any sort of shame on principle; instead serving as the voice of reason, or whatever contrived argument the writer thinks is reason. If bad things happen to this character, it will be to prove that everyone else is allegedly stupider. Not all Scrappies are doomed to their status. If the writers notice what's happening, they may change the character in order to make sure they are no longer hated, give them a tragic death scene, simply send them away, or at the very least show that the other characters are as annoyed by them as the fans are. If the character is a Jerkass Straight Man, Butt Monkey, or Chew Toy, though, don't expect anything to change; these characters are meant to be dislikable on purpose, as it's part of the charm.

On the other hand, if the writers take a shine to The Scrappy and add some elements of Mary Sue,     or otherwise put more focus on them over more popular/liked characters, this will add gasoline to the flames - they've just turned The Scrappy into the dreaded Creator's Pet. Expect anti-websites (and, more recently, dozens of Orkut communities); message threads that degenerate into flamefests; and a hard fast descent into loonydom. Of course, writers may also make a Scrappy intentionally in order to spoof the concept. A Temporary Scrappy exists to get on the viewers' nerves and then get thrown out at the end of the episode. Whenever fanfiction (especially Shipping) is involved, The Scrappy will very likely die for the writer's chosen pairing. Even if they aren't technically involved in the Ship. They'll also become the frequent subject of Ron the Death Eater treatment. In rare instances where the Scrappy has a unexpected Dying Moment of Awesome, it's Alas, Poor Scrappy (very subjective).

This trope is named after Scrappy-Doo from the Scooby Doo cartoon. The hatred of Scrappy was so prevalent that the 2002 Scooby Doo movie (which is not considered Canon with respect to any other Scooby Doo series) had Scrappy unceremoniously thrown out of the Mystery Inc. van. Interestingly, as noted below, Scrappy-Doo was actually quite popular at the time of his introduction with his intended Target Audience, and the hatred towards him is a more recent phenomenon.

This is a very Subjective Tropes, more based on the fandom than the character itself. The visceral response to The Scrappy can baffle other fans who don't take the character as seriously, or even sympathize with him or her. Often it's subjected to Double Standards particularly against female characters, somehow negative traits are often seen as less forgivable in a female character than
a male character. Please only post examples of the fandom hating a character; posting Personal Scrappies could get messy, especially if the Scrappy is in at the center of a Fandom Rivalry.

With that said, I'll now go through familiar fiction and name my personal Scrappies among the casts.

A PSA

Sorry for the lack of blog content as of late. I'm still getting that together. But in the meantime, I'd like to put out an important message regarding something in society that has bugged me forever.

You see these gals? Most of these ladies have sparked many a heated argument among guys (and perhaps a few girls too) about how attractive or "hot" they were - or weren't. Some would consider one to be sexy, while others would say "No, she's not hot at all! She's plain and fugly! U WRONG!" Really, that is never something someone should ever say, and there are two reasons for this. One 
is that looks are not everything when it comes to a person and their profession, obviously. And the second is that one cannot state "she's totally hot" or "she's totally not hot" or even "she's plain and fugly" as if it were inarguable, undeniable fact and that the person who thought otherwise was dumb. Because what might not be perceived as attractive to  one person might be perceived as attractive to another. It's all a matter of point of view. This is an age old saying that many forget the value of...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

And no, I'm not going to say who I perceive as attractive or not. I'm just here to put out this PSA, so that the next time you insist that someone is totally not hot and not at all beautiful or attractive, just remember that in another world and reality, THIS is the standard of beauty and sexiness: 


Actually, that's not so bad. Why can't our stars look more like that? 

It's "The TWILIGHT Zone"! Get it?

Jennifer Lawrence approves!
