I just listed the characters who are considered "The Scrappy" in the GTA world according to TV Tropes.

I think quite a few of these characters are more "Hate-Sink" types. For instance Vlad, while one of the funniest characters in IV, was clearly written from the get-go to be truly detestable. You're meant to hate him as much as Niko does.

 

That being said, Trevor's arrival in V honestly feels like Poochie stopping us on the way to the fireworks factory to me. Not because I hate Trevor though, I don't, but it heralds the plot shifting away from all the good stuff had been set up before and onto the tiresome FIB arc that takes up way too much of the game.

Well according to TV Tropes, Sweet gets a lot of hate for his attitude after CJ busted him out of prison, choosing the hood over a better life, and as for Lance, well he's moreso hated in VCS.

I don't know if you can considered Trevor as a scrappy or not (I personally like him) but he seems has a love-hate relationship with fans...and from what I have seen, seems a lot of people hate him.

Michael's Family

They're annoying and do jack sh*t to contribute to the bigger plot. Just like Scrappy Doo in Scooby Doo cartoons, he's useless.

Packie, Johnny and Niko (technically) are in GTA V, you sure about that?

 

 

The one character I dislike so f*cking bad is Mori f*cking Kibbutz. I'm sure I'm not the only guy that hates this orange skinned prick.

Tanisha. She wants Franklin to get out of the hood but Franklin's situation is a bit complicated what with Lamar's shenanigans. She on the other hand got out of the hood by piggybacking off of a rich doctor. She also ignores that Franklin tried going straight with Simeon.

 

She also contradicts herself in her one storyline appearance (great job writers) by complaining that Franklin should ditch his friends because they're a bad influence and then demands he should save Lamar because "you gotta stick by your homies".

^Actually the real exgirl of low black gangster would do sth like this.

For me it's Trevor. He would be one of greatest antagonists but he bacema a pathetic looser in the end. I am glad that Franklin burned sh*t out of him.

Devin Weston, a billionare with a private army at his disposal, he should feel like a dangerous foe but instead is just mildly irritating, a bit like a fly who won't leave you alone, annoying but no threat.

I think Amanda, Tracey and Jimmy De Santa would make it to the top of the list. IMO, some of the characters you mentioned in the OP too way too insignificant to be hated.

I think Kate McReary could go there as well... don't get me wrong, I really like her, but most of the GTA fan community can't stand her for some reason...

I wouldn't be so fast to call a character a "Scrappy" just because they were a backstabber or scumbag - this is the GTA universe we're talking about, remember? If they played an important or unique part in the story, I feel they're off the hook.

 

Certain characters like Brian or Maria really are that bad, though.

CJ is really more of a Base-Breaker. He does get hate, sure. But he still has plenty of fans who like him, hell there are some who even worship the living sh*t out of him, such a SA4life and hozupindahows00s.
