The colimit is defined in terms of a functor from an indexing category to another category(a diagram).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the examples I've seen of the colimit, the functor is always faithful, so my question is, are there any nonfaithful functors from index categories that come up in real life?
