Hated game characters you like

I've created this topic because of this man:

He's widely hated, it even seems Nintendo want to wash their hands of him, quietly rolling him out for the "group" games and ignoring him the rest of the time...he doesn't even appear in any Wario series, and presumably he's meant to be some sort of sidekick! But I think he's hilarious, he's easily my favorite character in the Mario universe. He's weird, creepy and utterly pointless. And that's why he's totally brilliant.

So...what characters do you like that everyone else seems to hate?

Zool. Okay, he had no charisma or charm compared to Mario or Sonic but if you were an Amiga owner in 1992 he was yours. Your little bit of ammunition to fight off your console-owning friends with, even if you knew deep down that their platform games were better.

The Amiga has long-since been consigned to the parent's loft, but I did buy Zool for the SNES just so I could give it a nostalgia-filled run out now and again.

Zool's great :D
I've got one of the paperback books they brought out for him, such a weird design... Always thought he was some sort of masked gremlin (what with being made by Gremlin and all that). I even made up my own character back in the day, based on equal parts Zool and Sonic.

Talking about "hated" characters, I'll defend Bubsy to the death. There's NOTHING wrong with the first game.

But Mr. Nutz can just go and hang himself by his fat bushy tail.

I also like bubsy. The first game was good fun minus the weird momentum issues.

Navi from Ocarina of Time.

I honestly didn't find the "HEY LISTEN" particularly annoying and at least she ensures you always know what to do next.

Tearaway Thomas! He was a blatent ripoff of Sonic on the Amiga... but once you get past that it is still a good game that stands on its own. :D
