THE DESIGN IS UGLy
Sadly, this is very common in the Sonic fandom. Cosmo from Sonic X and even Zooey from Sonic Boom are hated because people want Tails to be paired up with Cream when the truth is that Tails and Cream never shown any romantic interest in each other in any of the games or shows.
This is also common in the god-awful mess known as the Kingdom Hearts fandom. The female characters are all hated by the fans because they think that they get in the way of their precious yaoi couples. (i.e. Xion and Namine are bashed because they want Roxas and Axel to be a couple)
This is true about the hyenas in The Lion King. Disney got sued by a biologist because of portraying the whole species as henchmen to the movie's main villain (Scar), and suggested to hyena conservationists that they should boycott the movie. I just think that the role of evil, comic relief lackeys is not right for the hyena. In reality, hyenas are very intelligent and helpful to the environment, and are nothing like the bad guys in the movie.
This is why so many characters such as Slippy (Star Fox) and Tingle (Zelda) get so much unnecessary hate compared to most other fictional characters. What did they do to deserve this? It's better to just form your own personal opinions and not be influenced by all the tropes and memes you see all the time.
