Bored with nothing to do, you get on Crunchyroll and watch a random anime. After watching about a dozen or so episodes, you start to fall in love with the main characters. You remember their names by heart and the relationships they struggle to try to keep. You stick with them all the way with every plot twist and hilarious scenes......and then it happens....a random new character is introduced in the most heinous way. They ruin the established relationship of the main characters, make everything much more complicated and worse........NOT IMPORTANT in the least!! I call these guys the forbidden characters.
It seems like Forbidden characters always has something in common with the main protagonist. They are always either the sister, cousin, best friend or someone else. Many romantic anime have been ruined by this character (I'm looking at you Sword Art ). They are also the most annoying character of all time!
So its time to ask.......anyone else has been plagued by this character? Which anime? Do you agree with me or are you on the Dark side of the force???

Are you talking about characters that know their love interest is in a good relationship but they keep trying to steal them anyway? I hate those types of people and experience great pleasure when they lose. You end up falling in love with someone and they are taken? Don't be a gigantic scumbag, drop it, and move on with your life.

No. I enjoy a lot of taboo themes. Which include human experiments, amongst other things.

Not particularly bothered by the SAO cited issue but others of those type bother me. I can't really accept are those that do not know what "NO" means, specifically in relationships.

Similar to what he said. Any character who ignores, mocks, belittles, shits-upon another hard effort and work. This is especially true when the audience is shown this work.

For a minor spoiler reference, Mushibugyo's 3(or 4th?) episode was a character introduction one, introducing a small kid with a few of bugs.

The entire show focuses around giant bug's destroying Japan, and our heroes saving the city. This kid is deathly afraid of Centipedes and Worms, any of the crawly bugs. He hides this from the rest of the cast. When our Hero finds out, he tries to help out. Thinking "Wow, this kid is trying to conquer his fears! I should support him!"

The other secondary characters find out however, and decide it's the perfect time for a prank. So they wave a few in front of the kid to see his reaction. The kid, obviously scared out of his mind, runs away crying. Que hilarity, and our secondary characters start laughing their asses off.
Hero walks up to them, and gives a speech about how the kid is trying his best to conquer a fear, and they should feel heavily ashamed for mocking his efforts.

And I was crying at this scene, the one moment the series made me cry or care enough for the character. It's simple, yet very very effective. This is essentially the entire opening plot to Naruto. Mocking hard work is something I absolutely hate, and characters who do this should only be villains who die, because it's disgusting.

That said, I really dislike Happosai from Ranma 1/2. Old 90+ Year old Munchikin-Geezer whose so overpowered, he's able to kick anybody ass OUT OF SHEAR PETTINESS! His ultimate technique is being an asshole every second of the day, consistently throwing things at people, breaking shit, calling for pizza and Chinese food deliveries only to not answer the door, writing on the walls, putting gum and lego's on the kitchen floor, digging holes in the back yard....just really really petty stupid shit, ENDLESSLY. Like, the level of Troll man, THE LEVEL OF TROLL, IT'S TOO MUCH.

Aiko-Chan from say "I love you", Yamato-kun's exgirlfriend. She ends up okay because she helps out Mei-chan in some of the episodes, but she was initially in Mei-chan's way, which REALLY pissed me off
