Top Ten Characters With Bad Fanbases


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Blaze the Cat Blaze the Cat

Also, some fans ship themselves with her. WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY THINKING?!

At first, I thought Blaze was really a cool character who has the potential to rival that of Sonic or Shadow, but even she isn't safe from having an obnoxious fanbase. That is, if her fans are more into classic cartoons rather than video games. Blaze never really appeared in a cartoon series or anything outside of video games and the Sonic comics, so putting her in a crossover relationship with someone like Felix the Cat or *gasp* Mickey Mouse does not seem right especially since both of those characters already have love interests (Kitty and Minnie Mouse respectively). Blaze is also mistaken for a "Mary Sue" when she's not.

82 Krystal (Star Fox)

When Krystal first appeared in Star Fox Adventures, the whole Furry Fandom went nuts over her because of the fact she was designed to be an attractive character. The bad thing is that some of those furries who like Krystal have never played the Star Fox games she's in, aren't even Star Fox fans, don't even know what Star Fox is or who Fox McCloud is, that they prefer to pair themselves or one of their original characters with her or (god forbid) put her a crossover relationship with another series' character instead. She is often blamed for the lack of quality of the recent Star Fox games or how she was portrayed in some scenes or endings in Star Fox Command, which led her fanbase to an all around flame war full of debates, nitpicking and theories. Since the upcoming Star Fox Zero is following the roots of Star Fox 64, Krystal's chances of reappearing is slim, but I would not show any hesitation if she were to appear again, since she still has a small handful of sane fans and her game ...more

Krystal may have a bad fanbase but her haters are even worse.

83 Aleu (Balto II: Wolf Quest)

Let me get this straight... Why does the Balto sequels even have a fanbase since they're not even that good and were only made to cash in the success of the original movie? Aleu was an obnoxious drama queen who wasn't nice to her own father who saved the whole town in the first movie. Why in the world does Aleu have a large fanbase? Yeah, it's because her fans like her because she's an action girl. You know what? Her mother Jenna was also an action girl because she rescued Balto from being attacked from a bear in the first movie. Heck, I always have though that, despite being henchmen at first, Nikki, Kaltag and Star were much nicer to Balto than his own daughter Aleu ever was due to them willing to help him carry the medicine back to Nome. Whereas Aleu didn't even want her father's help. Anything bad that Nikki, Kaltag and Star did to Balto was basically just Steele's fault since they were his 'yes dogs' before they realize the truth behind him, whereas Aleu outright said "I hate ...more

84 Mufasa (The Lion King) Mufasa (The Lion King)

If there is any character or movie I hate more than anything else, it's The Lion King. People worship it and it's characters like there's no tomorrow, and I'm sick of all the praise it gets. It's fanbase is horrid, the fanfiction is poorly written, the fanart is nothing but traced bases, and how the animals are portrayed in the entire TLK franchise is just unbearable. People especially believe in the whole "spotted hyenas are all evil henchmen" cliche which is wrong since hyenas are just apex predators like lions in reality and are as good as lions are (Since lions and hyenas are often rivals to one another, but if the heroes in the movie weren't lions, then the 'whole hyena population as henchmen' cliche would never have happened).

The biggest annoyance I have is when the fanbase cry like a bunch of toddlers over Mufasa's death. He's just a piece of fiction, not a real person/animal, people! The fans also believe that Mufasa is their ideal father figure when he's nothing but ...more

Ah yes, crying over Mufasa's death makes people look like overgrown babies. He's just fictional, not real.

85 Scar - The Lion King

He is easily, by far, the most overrated Disney villain of all time, just like how The Lion King is the most overrated Disney movie of all time. People like him because he's a killer, which is not a good reason to like a character (killing is bad behavior), and because he's effeminate (effeminate villains really bug me because they get more praise than the heroes if that's the case). Also, if lions are really a hyena's enemy, then why in the world did Scar make a whole spotted hyena population his henchmen? That doesn't seem right. I bet a real clan of hyenas would tear Scar to bits instead of joining him as his henchmen. Well, Scar's clan did eat him at the end but it was only because they were hungry, not because they were reformed or anything given that they're set to still be bad guys in the upcoming The Lion Guard. TLK's hyenas are nothing like their real-life equivalents. Also, the lack of lionesses or a lion pride give Scar a questionable sexuality (sorry for mentioning that, I ...more

86 Shenzi - The Lion King

She, as well as Banzai and Ed, don't do their species any justice.

I swear to the gods that Shenzi has one of, if not, the most perverted fanbase of any fictional character. To the point that some fans are obsessed with her genitals and, combined with the fact that the hyena trio share the "evil comic relief trio who are the main villain's cronies" with other animated movie trios such as the dogs from Balto (1995) and the spies from Gulliver's Travels (1939), Shenzi is often mistaken as a male character because of this trope when she is in fact, female. Whereas all the members of the two non-Disney trios I've mentioned are all male.

Also, I once seen a horrible crossover pic of Shenzi French-kissing a Braixen, which really made me so angry. Especially since Braixen is one of my favorite Pokemon. If that happens, hope Braixen burns Shenzi into ashes.

I really detest the TLK trio (Shenzi, Banzai and Ed) with a passion because they don't do their species' reputation any justice but I had to list one here if not all three. They're not funny, and they're not even likable at the slightest. Their fanbase is rotten to the core, they think that they're the truth on hyena facts when they're just fictional characters, among various other misconceptions on these characters and their species. Heck, these three look nothing like real spotted hyenas, enough that Disney got into trouble years ago by a hyena biologist because of this after they promised that they would portray them positively.

Shenzi is constantly mistaken for a male character when she is in fact, female. She's not even the most masculine of all female characters, people. It's only because she is the 'leader' of a villainous trio and leaders of most of those trios are male *cough* Nikki, Kaltag and Star from Balto *cough*. Although Shenzi would be just a female leader of a ...more

87 Banzai - The Lion King

There is nothing funny about getting mauled to death by a fierce lion or being called a "cactus butt", people. I also find it ironic that Banzai, as well as that big hyena from The Lion Guard (unsure what his name is) are the big muscle of the hyenas when in real-life it's the female hyenas that are stronger and dominate over the males.

I like Banzai though

The Lion King would have been great if it wasn't overhyped, full of clichés and actually had better characters.
However, the hyena stereotypes and incorrect portrayal of them in TLK are atrocious, along with the fact people actually think it was funny for Banzai to be mauled to death, when in reality it's not. - Swellow

88 Ed - The Lion King

Ed probably has the biggest fanbase of the TLK hyenas next to Shenzi. He is often mistaken as a funny and even smart character who 'knows the score' when he is none of those. Just like how Knuckles from the Sonic franchise, most recently Sonic Boom, is mistaken as stupid when he's smart.

Truth to be told, Knuckles is supposed to be smart, and is therefore smart. Ed is supposed to be stupid, and is therefore stupid. It is really that simple.

89 Timon - The Lion King Timon - The Lion King

Timon reminds me so much of Pico the Woodworm from The Magic Voyage (hate that movie and character, too). It makes me sick.

He is the typical "small and annoying" sidekick to the hero. 'enough said.

90 Pumbaa - The Lion King

Is best known for introducing fart jokes to the (perhaps formerly family friendly) Disney animated canon, and is a huge turn-off for many. It's like, well... None of the comic relief in other Disney movies, and most Non-Disney movies experienced flatulence problems before. Thank goodness that Muk and Luk didn't fart in any of the Balto movies or else people will think they're just like Timon and Pumbaa.

91 Zoroark - Pokemon Zoroark - Pokemon

Often mistaken as a werewolf when the fact that it is a fox, and based on the kitsune. It's known as the "Illusion Fox", there is no wolf in there at all. (Although werefoxes technically exist in fiction)

Same case with Lucario. I still give it a 9/10 but Gen 5 have a lot of overshadowed Pokémon because of it. (Zebstrika is one) - Swellow

92 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

A poor excuse of a protagonist with the most cliched looks and personality traits ever.

93 Axel - Kingdom Hearts

A terrible character, yet is adored by a bunch of psychotic yaoi fangirls. I really wish your dog wound finally extinguish Axel and his fire powers with his/her urine.

I think Balto should pee on Axel. Honestly.

Axel haters are worse than Axel

His fans are worse than his haters.

94 TJ - Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
95 Shulk - Xenoblade Chronicles Shulk - Xenoblade Chronicles Shulk is a fictional character and the protagonist from Monolith Soft's 2010 role-playing video game Xenoblade Chronicles, part of their overarching Xeno series of video games.

The memes yeah. - ParkerFang

96 Mettaton - Undertale Mettaton - Undertale Mettaton is a character in the popular 2015 RPG game, Undertale. He is a robot with a soul built by Dr. Alphys, and is the sole television star of the underground. Mettaton is a popular character in the fanbase. His notable features include his legs, and his catchphrase "OH YESSSS!"

Mettaton's fanbase seem to ignore the fact the character is rarely in EX form, but the worst part is like Sans; People want to sexualize it. - Swellow

97 Curly Brace - Cave Story
98 Sephiroth - Final Fantasy VII

Also, I don't have a husband/wife and never will.

I never understood the hype of this character... Seriously, there are way better Final Fantasy villains and other video game villains out there.

Also, his fanbase RUINED Karel from Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade with their dumb crossovers and comparisons big time. Karel is not villainous like Sephy is, (Karel's an anti-hero and ally to the protagonists of his series) so stop demonizing the "Sword Demon" and accept him the way he is. (No pun intended)

Not all of them diss your husband Karel you know. They drool over him and spam one winged angel and shove it to people's throats. On the other hand, Kefka's worse - yunafreya648

You don't seem to understand. Karel is not my husband. As I said, I don't have any husbands nor wives and never will.

Another thing, you cannot deny the fact that so many fans treat Karel very badly by making him into an antagonist in their FE or crossover fanfics when the fact is that Karel is an anti-hero, not a villain, like I said here before, thus he's different from Sephy. This is why I can't look at fanfics or art of Karel anymore unless it is good and stays true to his character, and has nothing to do with god-awful crossovers.

Well his fangirls are just like Sans I think - ParkerFang

99 Papyrus - Undertale Papyrus - Undertale Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox . He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin . Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become more.
100 Reyn - Xenoblade Chronicles
