Destructoid: While many videogame characters are beloved around the world, there are a handful that are reviled by a large majority of the gaming population. And, to be honest, “reviled” may not even be strong enough a word. I know some characters that will result in near riots of anger if even mentioned.
Some of these hated characters I agree with -- I will easily grab my torch and pitchfork in violent protest as well! -- but others I think are given a very bad rap.
