Top Ten Most Annoying Disney Character Cliches

Disney used to be good when shows like Hannah Montana, That's So Raven, Lizzy Miquire, KimPossible, Wizards of Waverdly Place, even Good Luck charlie.
Then they wrecked the station with Austin and Ally, Shake it Up, Liv and Maddie, Jessie, Ant Farm, etc.
Now Girl Meets World is the only good one.
They also made the crappy movie, High School Musical, and people only like it because of Zac Effron, and Teen Beach Movie, and people only like it because of Ross Lynch.

The Top Ten

Friends Who Treat Each Other Badly

Shake it off- rocky calls cece stupid all the time and they constantly fight

Dog with a blog- Avery treats Lindsey like a subhuman and lindsey is too naive to realise it

Austin and Ally- Trish and Dez hate each other, Ally and Austin pretty much hook up and break up and ignore the other charecters

Jessie- now that I think about it the charecters hardly interact with non family members but Zuri abuses every living person she comes into contact with - ToptenPizza

"i'm your best friend" they say

"Ill be with you forever" they say

"I wont let you down" they say

This is nearly every character on Disney now. Especially Shake It Up. - Garythesnail

I would rather watch Fairy Tail (which emphasizes friendship) than put up with this cliche.

Dumb Blonde

Not all blondes are dumb there are some blondes who are really smart

Edward Elric beats that cliche! He's blonde AND SMART. He knows equivalent exchange and doesn't even need a transmutation circle for alchemy. Disney should really follow that example.

Liv Rooney was not a dumb blonde, she just comes off really, really basic. But yes, I don't like this stereotype. Particularly because they're typically shown to be more popular than their more intellectual counterparts. - keycha1n

I know a blonde girl and she earned a National Academy Award for hard work. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A DUMB BLONDE TO YOU?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Nerdy Freak

I'm a dork look I don't see anything wrong about being weird. I'm proud for being me and I'm not a fake.

I would consider myself to be a bit of a nerd, so I definitely LOATHE THIS CLICHE. Walt Disney would never do something like this if he still lived today. Nerds make more money, just like my Computer Programming I teacher says! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I am a nerd/geek and this kind of offends me the most.
I am also offended by the diabetics are faking it stereotype.
If they are combined into one character that portrays those stereotypes, I will get a mob to burn down Disney studios. - Skullkid755

Being a little bit of a nerd myself, I especially hate this one. We're not all bad! - Garythesnail

Arrogant Main Characters

Seven words: Every. Single. Teen. Sitcom. Excluding. Animated. ONES. - DynastiSugarPop

The main characters are always pricks - ToptenPizza

Little brats should die - Miauzer

Younger Sibling Is Better Than the Older Sibling

I'm a big brother and I have a younger sister. We're both smart, so no sibling should be portrayed as better than the other. It's mean. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

As an eldest sibling, I hate when the youngest sibling is the nicest while the oldest is the meanest. Not all older siblings are bossy and mean!

It always seems the older sibling is just an idiot: in good luck Charlie, Teddy is better than PJ, in ant farm China is better than cameron, in dog with a blog Avery is better than Tyler, Ravi is smarter than Emma, etc - ToptenPizza

Well I'm the oldest child in my family but I'm the youngest out of my friend group and they say stuff like "we can't tell u this stuff cause your too young" seriously I'm ONLY ONE YEAR YOUNGER

Teenagers Pretending They Have Talent When They Don't

All the singers are idiots who look attractive but have an average voice covered with autotune - ToptenPizza

Disney in a nutshell since 2012

Tens who think thy can sing but just sound like autotuned fart - Lunala

Mean Cheerleaders

Not all cheerleaders are rude petty arrogant snobs. Not all of them are mean girls who humiliate and embarrass others just because it’s fun

One of my dearest friends is a cheerleader. She's a great person, too. These people are exceptionally talented and posses the psychical and energetic ability to train hard and practice to do their best. It's wrong to judge a person based only on this stereotype!

I am a cheerleader. I'm not mean, am I? Also, my sister is a cheerleader but... She's a devil. - AnonymousChick

One of my best friends is a cheerleader, and she's one of the most sweetest people I've ever meant.

Flirty Boy Who Makes a Lot of Sexual Jokes

Luke is a huge example, he keeps making jokes about touching Jessy's boobs, or looking at her in a sexual way, etc - ToptenPizza

Not even Lubbock from Akame ga Kill! is as low as Luke.

This gives the male gender a bad name. Luke is just Lubbock from Akame ga Kill! combined with Justin Beiber. Ugh.

"It appears it's just as Miss Sonia said...I'm just a PEST...no, I'm not just a pest, I'm a total filthy PIG...ISN'T THAT RIGHT, MISS SONIA?!? IF I'M A FORNICATING PIG, YOU CAN SAY SO! "

- Kazuichi Souda, Danganronpa 2 Goodbye Despair - xandermartin98

Twist Villain

Twist villains have to stop.

King Candy: Woah! What a trick he pulled off!
Hans: Okay, what a surprise.
Yokai: Okay, this is getting old.
Bellwether: STOP!
Te Ka being Te Fiti: NO MORE!

Alright, who wants to bet that Yesss is going to be the villain of "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2"? Come on people, place your bets!

Sibling Yin Yang

The Contenders

Idiot Parents

Parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, etc. Are very intelligent and deserve respect!

Why is every single parent an idiot who lets their kid do whatever they want?

Plus in Disney shows the parents are NEVER around and the kids run riot around the house and/or school because the teachers are crap at discipline

The only smart parents on now (2016) are Corey and Topanga.

Unfit Siblings (Brothers and Sisters)
Obnoxious Fat Girl

By far the worst message Disney enjoys sending out. I admit even Gravity Falls does this to an extent. Even though I find Grenda lovable. - keycha1n

Disney has had a thing lately about making the fat one obnoxious and rude, such as Willow (live and maddie), Tris (Austin and Ally) - ToptenPizza

Classic Fairytale Characterization Ruined

Very true. This is especially the case in Kaa. In the original Jungle Book novel, he was one of Mowgli's friends and mentors, but in the Disney film adaption, he is a comic-relief villain. Wait, WHAT?!

If Disney dares to adapt any Nintendo game into a film, worse case scenario being Fire Emblem, they will just ruin characterization much more. (One of the things that makes FE a great game series besides the anime-inspired art is the characterization, and it would suck if Disney gets their grubby Mickey Mouse gloves on the series.)

Some of the original stuff is too dark/inappropriate for little kids!

For example: Hercules. In the movie, Zeus only had 1 kid (Hercules) and Hera is his mom. In actual Greek mythology, Zeus raped a bunch of women and had a bunch of kids with them and Hera really hated Hercules since he's the son of a mortal woman.

RAPE AND CHEATING ON YOUR OWN WIFE in a kid's movie? That's just sick and so wrong on so many levels!

Parents are Dead

Hercules is the only character who's parents are still alive. They actually CAN'T DIE cause they're immortal!

The Princess

I would try to have the princess do something other then sit around and wait to be rescued

Mary Sues and Gary Stus

Biggest examples of these are Isabella, Phineas and Ferb, Avery, and Chyna. They're worse than Tatsuya Shiba (but he is a badass anime character, to be honest) from The Irregular At Magic High School. At least he doesn't try to SHOW OFF! UNLIKE THESE MARY SUES AND GARY STUS! Finally, Kirito is a better Gary Stu than all of the ones from Disney Channel. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Love-Hate Relationships
Annoying Brother

I have a brother and he is my absolute best friend I probably would go nuts if my brother wasn't around, I love him dearly

I'm a brother, and although I sometimes get on my sister's nerve, she doesn't say I'm that annoying. Sheesh, brothers such as Sasuke and Itachi are not even annoying to the audience as much as Disney Channel annoying brothers.

Matt McGuire is another example. - DynastiSugarPop

Older Sibling is Better Than the Younger Sibling
Overprotective Dad

Mufasa is an example of this.

So is King Triton

So is Marlin

Evil Stepmothers

In actual Greek mythology, Hera's Hercule's evil stepmother. In the Disney movie, she's his nice biological mom.

SJW feminist propaganda

Female characters in Disney movies are like "women are better objects than men" JUST STOP!

Heaven forbid they have the boy character be better than the girl character at something, that’s SEXIST!
So stupid, feminism has gone way over the top.

Four words: Ralph Breaks the Internet

Woman Protagonist

I like women protagonists. They prove that women can be strong

What how is this a cliche? there are only two genders...

Making Autistic Characters as Comic Relief

True. As someone who is autistic myself, I hate this.

There are autistic Disney characters?

I’m autistic and would HATE to be represented as comic relief.
