Create New And the father prefers his dog, Only Son. When there is a first banana, there is a second banana. But all in all, this is basically the kid who is always getting the short-end of the stick. If the favoritism was particularly vicious, however, up to and including abuse, The Unfavorite becomes a more tragic character — most probably The Woobie.
Sometimes, however, the Unfavorite is almost suspiciously well-adjusted. Unfavorites without a sibling are often unwanted or unexpected children and can even, in perhaps an extreme case, be passed over for the family pet.

Somewhat in the Emma manga. Top this all off with his love affair with the titular Emma, a maid, and you have a recipe for the official Unfavorite of Mr. Averted later on by her adoptive mother Lindy, who loves her just as much as she loves her biological son.
At first, it appears that Sasuke — while being fairly intelligent and very talented — is constantly being neglected in favor of his genius Aloof Big Brother Itachi, whom his father always praises with, "As expected of my child," while Sasuke is only told by their father to "become more like Itachi.
Fugaku soon turns his interest to Sasuke, telling him not to be like Itachi and complains to the rest of the family about his older son. But ultimately, their parents loved them both very much.
When Itachi comes to kill them, both Fugaku and Mikoto are shown to be aware of his massive turmoil, and they tell him that they understand his reasons and decisions, offering no resistance as he tearfully executes them.
