Most Useless Anime Characters

The Top Ten
1 Sakura Haruno (Naruto) Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She always needs help and cannot and I repeat CANNOT fight for herself. She shouldn't be called a medical ninja, no, she's just a medic undeserving of the title "ninja". People say she guarded Sasuke and Naruto at the Chunin exams but EVERYTHING, every TRAP she made wasn't any use. She still needed help from Lee even though she treated him HORRIBLY at first. She never did ANYTHING. Also granny Chiyo did most of the work in defeating Sasori. ( Which was tragic, why couldn't Sakura die instead? For once, let the bad guy win ) And just because she was trained by Sannin doesn't make her useful just a bit stronger. ( Though it wasn't put to good use anyways ) Like example: A VERY strong ninja gives birth to a child but that doesn't make the child as strong as his father now does it?

Sakura's abilities by the end at least were far better that I can agree (since she had ZERO redeeming qualities in the first place so the bar was extremely low in hindsight) but she didn't deserve any of it. She didn't deserve to be trained by Tsunade in the first place. She never ever proved herself at all to be worthy of it. And Always depending on being rescued burdening others with her problems being a pathetic damsel all the damn time.. She didn't deserve to get Tsunade's seal powers or summon. Sakura suddenly getting all that in the end was really really forced. And yes Sakura was still useless even after all that plot fanservice. Shaking and crying infront of Madara and obito just like her first mission of being useless.

She can't heal properly she tried to heal naruto but he still died. She tried to heal Shikamaru but only Tsunade did it later. She didn't want to heal Neji either. She was too busy crying instead of healing people when pain attacked and injured everyone. She punches things then gets distracted and has to be saved for the hundredth time in the war by Naruto, Sasuke and even Kakashi. She can't defeat Omoi has to be saved again. She can't kill Sasuke has to be saved again twice. In older episodes Lee, Ino, Shikamaru and Chouji and Sasuke all had to save her from enemies. She refuses to do anything and sits there and cries helplessly. She thinks she is so smart but Sasuke knows the truth. Why didn't she just die? What a useless ugly damsel in distress

If you want to know what I think, I have already written it somewhere else. Anyway I hate her black soul with all my heart and when I will get better at drawing I will draw plenty of dead Sakura and post them on Internet. That is my dream...
Actually I will talk about myself, my name is Okuda Mia, I have many likes such as books, animals, video games and sailing. My dislikes are cow milk, Sakura, Italian schools, Sakura, Hinata haters, Sakura, ravioli and Sakura.
My hobbies are going on Internet, reading, drawing, playing video games and doing artistic gym, boxing and kendo.
My dream is to be able to remake Naruto with Sakura and another character that would be me that punches and kicks her, my second dream is to become an actress, my third dream is to create an anime and my fourth to become a book author. I'm doen

2 Karin (Naruto)

Much more useless and annoying than Sakura

She's still better than Sakura.

Nothing but she is worse than Sakura

She is way worse than everyone!

3 Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z) Chi-Chi is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Dragonball Z's version of Sakura Haruno.

Useless is her first name.

tba mo wag ka feeling

4 Yamcha (Dragon Ball Z) Yamcha (ヤムチャ, Yamucha) is a Bandit and a main protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga and in the anime Dragon Ball, and later a supporting protagonist in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, with a few appearances in Dragon Ball GT. He has black hair and has a scar across his eye and cheek.

Come on, people, he's not a Saiyan. So ultimately, Krillin, Tien and Chiaotzu are useless, too! Stop hating on Yamcha!

Besides, he's not as useless as Videl!

He doesn't really do anything. When he does fight he gets killed or impaled and eventually just gives up fighting.

He gets cocky and overconfident very fast, but he's always one of the first people to die.

Yamcha would deserve all the 10 spots of the top 10 alone.

5 Misa Amane (Death Note) Misa Amane is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.
6 Yajirobe (Dragon Ball Z) Yajirobe is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

You say "The only useful thing Yajirobe ever did was slice of Vegeta's tail", but that's a really useful thing isn't it? Helping to save the world? So he's clearly not useless. So why he's first here is beyond me

The only useful thing Yajirobe ever did was slice of Vegeta's tail after he transforms after spending most of the fight with the saiyans out of site in hiding other than that he's completely useless through the rest of the series.

True he did cut off Vegeta's tail which was helpful, but were the hell was he when everyone was getting the crap beaten out of them by the saiyans Yamcha, Chiotzu, Tein and Picciolo all died while he spent the whole time hiding not lifting a finger to help.

At least Yamcha knows how to actually fight

7 Orihime Inoue (Bleach) Orihime Inoue is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

LOL over all she's one of the most looked down on characters in anime, and portably the most disliked female character in bleach all together. Its really kinda sad considering she's sweet, but her obsession with Ichigo and over all annoying personality completely eclipses any positive characteristics she may have. Especially compared to her rival/friend Rukia who never fails to live up to fans expectations, has wonderful character development and plays a much more important role in Ichigos life giving him strength, as apposed to just being a damsel in distress who's obsessed with the hero. I don't care who you ship you just can't deny the fact she's disliked for a reason.

I think origins actually is pretty strong I mean I know she has those little like what do I call them helpers? But anyway even though she has those "helpers" she has good mental strength and isn't it technically her spiritual energy being used up by the "helpers"?

She's too girly so how can she not be the most useless? Sakura Lucy and nami all have that strength to them, but orihime is weak willed and 1000% overly girly girl.

She is truly a pathetic girl...I would be absolutely glad if she died in the Arrancar war and Ulquiorra would be alive..damn kubo...it would be cool if Ulquiorra was still alive and join force with Ichigo

8 Blair (Soul Eater)

Now this is a character that does absolutely nothing. At least Lucy can fight.

I'm glad Blair is on this list. I HATE HER! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Even more useless than sakura

After one clip of seeing her I know she's now a useless characterr and only exists for fanservice, lucy heartfilia may had fanservice but at least she has a point in the series - BoyGenius234

9 Serena (Pokemon) Serena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship ...read more.

Serena in a nutshell
Look, I know she is not a battler, but she is trash. Really, she is.
All she wants to do was perform in pink, sparkly showcases, and then Aria won.
In the kiss she said that Ash was her goal. Like, what?
Her destiny is, was, and is forever Ash.
And Ash alone.
So she is as useless as crap and in Sakura's place (Sakura does heal properly, and is very badass, but then haters only look at her faults) there should be SERENA!
End of Serena rant part one, and going!

Yeah, she didn't make much progress in the show, and her personality was nothing but "Ash-senpai~! ". To be fair, her whole character was garbage.

Most useless character

10 Mr. Satan (Dragon Ball Z) Mr. Satan is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Yeah that is true he never did anything well except for you know getting earth to give the ki to the spirit bomb to defeat kid buu I would think that means something

Showoff that always wins because the other z fighters only care about fighting people with real skills not showboats who claim to have beat cell singlehanded

Wait he's actually kinda useful he threw 16's head and if he never did it no ssj2 gohan

The Newcomers

? Dhalis Zachary (Attack on Titan)

11 Pan (Dragon Ball GT) Pan (パン, Pan) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. She is the granddaughter of Earth's savior, Goku and the world champion, Mr. Satan. Pan's heritage is primarily Earthling, being the offspring of the Saiyan-Earthling hybrid Gohan and the Earthling ...read more.

Pan in super is already a major fail, too. So pointless and a waste of screen time.

Insignificant in DBZ, GT, and Super. Just all around useless. And so very ugly.

12 Nami (One Piece) Nami is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. She is based on Ann and Silk, two characters from Oda's previous manga Romance Dawn.

Namitards' description is so ridiculous. They repeat she's navigator (who cares! ) and forecast skills (which we barely see and is part of her job! ) and now "financial advisor" lol advisor of who? she just selfishly takes whatever money she can get, even from her own friends! Oh and keep everyone in check = bossy and annoying

So what she's the Navigator? They all have a role to play she is not special at all!
Robin is the only one who can read the Road poneglyph so she's more unique but that doesn't stop Nami fans from hating on her now does it?

She yells, steals, is annoying, I could go on forever about why she's the worst.

Useless skank. Greedy and selfish. No Wonder so many people hate her.

13 Yuki Cross (Vampire Knight)

All she can is cry like a baby unless Lucy is better than her

14 Chris Thorndyke (Sonic X) Chris Thorndyke is a fictional character and the main human protagonist of the Anime series based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series created by Sega, Sonic X.

Auggh! Compare him to Princess Peach. Princess PEach is even worse than the crappy Chris Thorndyke. laugh out loud. I wish Katy Perry were the actual voice of Pinky from Pac-Man as well as she would have dissed Chris Thorndyke.

I don't see why he's on this list he consistently helps sonic maybe not that well but he's not useless

Why is he even in the show? To make us want to watch the show to see how bad he is?

Dumb, selfish kid who needed to die already.

15 Rin Nohara (Naruto)

I used to like her but when Obito died for her sake ther can only be resentment . It was so easy for her to dismissed him and confess right away to Kakashi who wanted to left her behind over the mission. And when he turned her down and told her outright that he wasn't clearly interested, that's when she realized she was clearly stupid. Stupid not because she was just being true to herself but in the way that she thinks she was prioritized and highly prized, that she needs saving only to be rejected and faced the bitter truth though Kakashi never elaborated the other side of the story. And that what she did to Obito had it's consequences.

Kishi let her be a motivational character to the guy who simp her hard and almost destroy the shinobi world because she was his only light? What?! Rin is an ineffectual lump of goo who not only detsroyed his comrades psyche in the process but made her pure and selfless to sacrifice herself to the village is pure lunacy. Did she do something to make her team a better shinobi? She did not. She simps hard for someone who never truly wanted and would willingly left her without batting an eye and the reason why Obito killed himself in the process. I really don't understand the guy, like if he knew what she did, he won't even gave a secs thought to abandon her just like what Kakashi did. Rin is a bad influence for the both of them. Really. I pity Obito for his affection on her. She didn't deserved his attention. Kakashi won't do the same. It looks as though she wanted them to fight over her or their attention for that matter. That gave her a fangirl impression and bad image of a female ...more

Rin sucks. The way Kakashi never wanted her and she died at the hands of her crush is poetic. She could've just made hasty decision out of sheer panic. And why did Kakashi never used the kunai gift to alert their sensei? Sometimes being a genius isn't a good thing, especially he thought he could've done something to save her life. He wasn't even capable of comprehending that the same situation had caused them Obito's life. He wasn't an effective tram leader. Even Rin was really annoying, I guess males liked them for a dumb reason lol.

Not only was she useless. She caused a massive changed in the shinobi world by involving herself too much to Obito who fell on her charms. So stupid of her to think her plan wasn't that all fatal. Such a tease character I wonder if she did it on purpose or just being ridiculous.

16 Cream the Rabbit (Sonic X)

Shes an annoying bitch

17 Hinata Hyuga (Naruto) Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She's sweet and has bloodline but she's kinda useless too

Hinata is USELESS more than any character in naruto

18 Minoru Mineta (My Hero Academia)
19 Nomad (Galaxy Angel)

He's a stuff animal what use could he possibly be to the angel brigade.

20 Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha) Kagome Higurashi is the main female protagonist of the anime/manga series Inuyasha, equaled only in importance by Inuyasha himself.

What kind of sane person would actually STANDS there instead of running if they see the enemies walking towards them ( and they don't fight either )?

Kagome is the least sympathetic anime character in history.

21 Botamo (Dragon Ball Super)
22 Gabi Braun (Attack on Titan)
23 Chiaotzu (Dragon Ball Z)
24 Mitsurugi Hanagata (Saber Marionette J/J to X)

The only thing this guy is good for is being everyone's punching bag. - egnomac

25 Shizuka Marikawa (Highschool of the Dead)

She doesn't contribute at all.
The only things she does, is driving and showing the fanservice.
Done.
