Connor360

The Top Ten

1 Chuckie Finster (Rugrats) Chuckie Finster (Rugrats)

His life isn't THAT hard. But still, imagine being him for one day. - Discord

Really, his life has to be hard? He has to be afraid of everything? He has to be tormented by the evil Angelica? His mother had to leave him when he was a little baby? Come on Klasky Csupo, stop picking on an innocent two year old! - Connor360

2 Charlie Brown (Peanuts) Charlie Brown (Peanuts)

Remember the football prank? - Connor360

3 Arnold Perlstein (The Magic School Bus)

"I knew I should have stayed home today! " LOL! He should be number one, they took not one, but TWO field trips inside him. - Discord

Some people don't want to go on field trips. - Connor360

I hated it when Arnold said that he "Should've stayed home today." I would always get pissed off and say "SHUT UP ARNOLD! ENJOY THE FIELD TRIP YOU WHINY BIATCH.

4 Butters Stotch (South Park) Butters Stotch (South Park) Leopold "Butters" Stotch is a fictional character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by series co-creator Matt Stone and loosely based on co-producer Eric Stough.

Butters' Parents Should Be Fed to The Sharks or Be Forced to Watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians!

Something Bad Should Happen to Them.

It's His Parents That Should Get Grounded

His parents always have to abuse him. - Connor360

5 Squidward Tentacles (Spongebob) Squidward Tentacles (Spongebob) Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Somehow, SpongeBob has to annoy him. - Connor360

I feel bad for him, gets annoyed, no friends, torture.

SpongeBob is the best, besides Squidward is a bad example for abusers and their victims

Absolutely everything happens to him :(

6 Milhouse Van Houten (Simpsons) Milhouse Van Houten (Simpsons)

We're Talking About Milhouse, Not The Lego Movie. And This is How He's Being Abused, Not His Appearance.

He is really nerdy and always gets bullied. - Connor360

7 Carl Wheezer (Jimmy Neutron) Carl Wheezer (Jimmy Neutron)

He is a senseative nerd. - Connor360

8 Edd (Ed Edd n Eddy) Edd (Ed Edd n Eddy) Edd, mostly referred to by his nickname "Double D," is one of the three protagonists in the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy. He is the physically weakest but the most intelligent member of the Eds.

He is a nerd. - Connor360

9 Meg Griffin (Family Guy) Meg Griffin (Family Guy) Megan "Meg" Griffin is a character from the animated television series Family Guy, voiced initially by Lacey Chabert, thereafter by Mila Kunis.

The whole Meg hating gag is getting old. Plus her own parents don't even like her. Peter once shot her with a gun, onpurpos, and they don't even remember her own birthday! - nintendofan126

Meg Sucks, Deal With It, Plus Lois Didn't Even Care When She Was Being Bullied, Thanks Dan Schneider!

10 Rocko (Rocko's Modern Life) Rocko (Rocko's Modern Life) Rocko is the eponymous fictional character of the cartoon Rocko's Modern Life and the comic book series of the same name.

I'm highly convinced that the show's theme song intro sequence was actually him having a nightmare about the sheer amount of abuse he's suffered throughout his life. And that's just the BEGINNING of the show. - xandermartin98

Rocko needs to punch his enemies in the face! Especially *cough cough* Ed Bighead! *cough cough* by the way I feel sorry for Rocko too… :(

The Contenders

11 Eugene (Hey Arnold)

I always feel really bad for him, he has such bad luck. He's a really good person, he always is positive, remember the first or second episode, where Arnold accidently broke Eugene's bike that he's always wanted, I thought he was going to get really angry but he's actually really nice, and throughout the episode he has a ton of bones broken but he still had a great time. He's awesome. - PeeledBanana

This boy is the character I feel the most bad for. His so-called friends (minus Arnold, of course, and that one girl) always say mean things about him, he's always getting hurt, and somehow manages to stay positive on top of it all! I'm surprised he hasn't become depressed or done something over the top...

I feel very bad for Eugene. His so-called friends (minus Arnold) are always saying mean things about him and he's always getting hurt. And somehow he stays positive on top of it all...

He has to be in many accidents. - Connor360

12 Shinn Asuka (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny) Shinn Asuka (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny) Shinn Asuka is a fictional character in the Japanese science fiction anime television series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny by Sunrise, part of the Gundam franchise.

Even though most people tend to hate on him too much, I actually feel bad for Shinn. He acts the way he does in SEED Destiny is because his parents and little sister Mayu were killed during the Battle of Onogoro. He needs more empathy because of that. - PerfectImpulseX

Anime is just the Japanese word for "cartoon". That's why he's on the list. - PerfectImpulseX

13 Plankton (Spongebob) Plankton (Spongebob) Sheldon James Plankton, or simply Plankton, is a character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Dude, forget blasting out of the restaurant, Plankton is an emotionally abused, pathetic, occasionally suicidal bum who can barely keep his business afloat. He is constantly mocked and hurt by someone who used to be his friend, and now lives with a fake wife that constantly points out what a failure at life he is.

Let's just forget all of the evil things he has done, Mr Krabs has to blast him out of his restaraunt. - Connor360

14 Arlene (The Garfield Show) Arlene (The Garfield Show) Arlene is Garfield's girlfriend. She is a pink, slim, beautiful stray cat with big red lips. Arlene and Garfield doesn't always get along, but she knows that he cares about her. And she cares about him as well. ...read more.

She has short raven hair and green eyes with a green dress. She is known as the "toughest fighter" for her tomboyish attitude, being aggressive, and her love for fighting crime. ...read more.

Seriously, she got her blanket taken away and her sisters teased her because they thought she was weird for having a blanket. Almost no one feels sympathy for her, and Bubbles robs all the attention from her. And she is treated worse by the Professor than Blossom and Bubbles. I can understand why she is angry mosy of the time. Buttercup is The Powerpuff Girls, without her, The Powerpuff Girls would not even be alive. - AnimeDrawer

That's true, I always felt bad for Buttercup while watching the show. - PeeledBanana

Yes, she deserves to be on this list. I saw a review on how badly she is mistreated and I really agree with it. - AnimeDrawer

17 Jerry (Tom and Jerry) Jerry (Tom and Jerry) Jerry Mouse is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films. He is a mouse that gets chased by Tom, but tries to trick him so he won't catch him .

Tom is overrated whilst Jerry is an adorable little guy who almost dies from the clutches of that evil cat. In Cat Nebula, he gets overweight and ends up getting squeezed by an alien version of Tom (near the end). I absolutely hated Tom for that! Go watch the episode and then you'll know what I'm talking about. Tom deserves to die!

18 Garfield (The Garfield Show) Garfield (The Garfield Show) Garfield is a comic strip cat, created by Jim Davis in 1978.

21 Gary (SpongeBob)

Go watch A Pal For Gary, The Cent Of Money, and Pet Sitter Pat. - Garythesnail

22 Mr. Cat (Kaeloo)

He was from an abusive family, suffered lots of other traumas, has psychological issues as a result and is treated horribly by Kaeloo half the time. In addition to all this, he has really bad luck.

Especially in the episodes like "Let's Play Cops and Robbers", "Let's Play Courtroom Drama" and "Let's Play Justice Masters" (That last one was particularly cruel to him).

He may be a jerk most of the time, but there are moments when you want to reach into your screen and give him a hug.

Just go watch "Let's Play Justice Masters".

23 Helga (Hey Arnold!)

I feel bad for Helga too. Stupid Olga!

Her parents and that annoying sister of hers is why she's so mean. - Rue

24 Peter Puppy (Earthworm Jim)
25 Kyle Broflovski (South Park)

He always gets ripped on because he's a Jew, he was voted the ugliest boy in his class just because the girls wanted shoes, He was sexually harassed by Bebe, and his mom's a big, fat bitch. - Popsicles

26 Maggie Pesky (The Buzz On Maggie)

Don't hate me on this. I just feel sorry for Maggie… Watch Training Day, Best Best Friends, Rotting Muck Ranch, Le Termite, Sister Act, Hooligans, Scare Wars, Metamorpho Sis, and Honey Stiper and you'll see what I mean.

27 Freddie Benson (iCarly) Freddie Benson (iCarly)
