Top Ten Cartoon and Video Game Characters That Don't Deserve the Hate They Get

If you really look into their back stories, they aren't bad at all. In fact, some people can even relate to these guys.

The Top Ten

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

With all of the Squidward Torture Porn episodes of this show, like House Fancy, how can you not feel sorry for him? Sure, he can still be a crab apple (do people still say that? ), but he's been through a lot of undeserved pain recently. - Scorpio

Wait, what? Really? Look at the fan base. Everyone loves squidward! Also, Plankton, too. They're getting sick of SpongeBob and Patrick in recent episodes. No one hates him, he drives the show. - Donut

The torture on him needs to stop.

2 Chris Thorndyke (Sonic X) Chris Thorndyke (Sonic X)

Before anybody rages, take into consideration where he comes from. He has very few friends he doesn't see much, and his parents weren't around much when he was younger. Hence why he's clingy to Sonic and why he hates being lonely. He doesn't want to go back to being lonely and forgotten. - Scorpio

He's so annoying! He literally thinks he's so swag but he's just a 5 year old kid who cries all the time.

He's kinda annoying but meh.

3 Max (Pokémon)

Another commen target towards Pokémon rage, this kid is often targeted for his smarts, and stereotypes of his age. Sure, claims to him being nerdy nay be true, but always being whiny can be ludicrous. Probably the most infamous example of him acting out is the episode where Ash battled Norman (has father) and beat him. Max got upset and stole Ash's badge and ran off, very upset. However, there's something to justify this; he looks to his father as his hero. Imagine 7 year old you watching your hero lose to somebody you hardly know. You'd cry, right? - Scorpio

I agree on this one. Poor kid. At first, I didn't like him, but you openedy eyes bro! I've changed my views, alongside aged. by the way, he's now my fourth favourite character. Thanks for showing me the truth!

4 Sparky (Fairly Odd Parents) Sparky (Fairly Odd Parents)

Many FOP fans (such as myself) don't like how he's just a plot device. However, does he deserve to be all out hated? I don't think so. He's actually kinda funny with his dog humour. - Scorpio

He doesn't deserve hate he's awesome.

5 Garbodor (Pokémon) Garbodor (Pokémon)

I used one it was good

The common target of genwunner hatred, garbodor is the garbage Pokémon introduced in generation 5. Genwunners like to point out that garbodor ‘ripped off’ muk. Well, it's interesting to note that garbodor grew bigger and better from its previous form, trubbish. Meanwhile, Muk just looked like a grimer, only bigger, literally! - Scorpio

6 Kyle (Fanboy and Chum Chum)

I'll admit it, this show sucks! The only likeable character in this show, Kyle, generally gets hated for being in the show, and for his negative attitude. But, when you have a class with two bone heads who dress as super heroes, can you really blame him? - Scorpio

I agree, the only likeable character in this abomination of a cartoon.

7 Pacifica Northwest (Gravity Falls) Pacifica Northwest (Gravity Falls) Pacifica Northwest is a character in the cartoon Gravity Falls made by Alex Hirsch. She's known for being rich and hating Mabel.

Pacifica got started as an unlikeable rich girl, but turned into a more friendly kind of person in the episode Northwest Mansion Noir (the most horrifying in the series). - Scorpio

I like her.

8 The Dog (Duck Hunt)

His infamous laughing at you aside, he does hold up the ducks you shot in a form of congratulatory showing. - Scorpio

I never found him that annoying, to be honest. His holding of the ducks is his way of congratulating you as seen as the comment before. I think that SSB4 made the character better, though.

I'd be one of those annoying "laugh out loud this list is a joke take this off NOW! " commenters who plague every list on this site for this, but the Dog ended up in SSB4 and was made so cute I even hate when I have to fight against him.

*Laughs so hard my sides ache*

9 Meg Griffen (Family Guy)

You've got to feel sorry for her. She's the most abused of the Griffen bunch. - Scorpio

I don't hate her - SweetBasil

10 Alphys (Undertale) Alphys (Undertale) Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the more.

11 Jimmy (Ed, Edd n Eddy)
12 Waluigi
13 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 .

As for the haters of this guy, they should fall into a hole and die.

I love him. He is a cute mouse who is part of an awesome cartoon. And Svampbob164, you say he's the best, and you're right! He is the best!

14 Lisa Simpson Lisa Simpson Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.
15 Raditz (Dragon Ball Z) Raditz (Dragon Ball Z)

He is actually a pretty cool character. And he only is the way he is because it's in his blood. He's a Saiyan, which is a naturally hostile race of aliens. Plus, I think he could have changed if given a chance. Vegeta was pretty evil at first, but he changed. He's my favorite DBZ/anime character. I love him!

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

Pre-movie: Likeable villain who lost every time, but we chuckled.

Post movie: harassed by Mr. Krabs in a whale suit to the point of a suicide attempt!

How can you hate plankton now, especially after the events of One Coarse Meal? Krabs deserves the hatred by a lot more reasons! - Scorpio

17 Amy Rose Amy Rose
18 Bulma (Dragon Ball Z) Bulma (Dragon Ball Z) Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.
19 Naruto (Naruto) Naruto (Naruto) Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
20 Haruka Seameyer (Dimension W) Haruka Seameyer (Dimension W)

I think he's actually a very interesting character. Despite being evil and psychotic, he wasn't always that way. He was originally a student of Shidou Yurizaki in his youth. A genius, he created the Genesis coil, but when Genesis was deemed dangerous and his research was shut down, he snapped and went mad. I love in episode 12, when Haruka is in shock after seeing Genesis was destroyed, then sees Shidou Yurizaki, who pats his head, giving him some kind of peace of mind before disappearing. Some may not, but I actually like this character.
