Top 10 Fictional Characters that Most-Hilariously Are the Most Pathetic Ones in Generally Pathetic Groups of Characters

The Top Ten
1 James (the most pathetic member of the Team Rocket Trio) - Pokemon: The Animated Series

To put it mildly, the fact that this guy somehow manages to be even more of a pathetic joke than the lives that Jessie and Meowth have been forced to endure, having in their backstories, is hilariously impressive. Basically:

Meowth got completely thrown away by his own parents, got beaten and abused quite nearly to death by an incredibly large number of the people that he met, and was so poor that he ended up having to steal basically all of "his" food in order to survive.

While all of those things were happening to him, he got basically no proper education other than the self-teaching that he did in order to teach himself how to walk and talk like humans. Then, he showed his new ability to do so to the immensely ungrateful Meowzie, who is so vain that she downright sadistically insulted and rejected him for the fact that he had caused himself to look less similar to her by causing himself to become more human-like.

Due to the fact that Meowzie's jaw-droppingly abusive treatment of him had caused him to catch the total disease that her greediness was, Meowth then decided to join Team Rocket just to finally become rich enough to be able to impress her. As for Jessie, let's just say that she lost her mother while still being a little kid in the process and then ended up having to eat snow due to the fact that the foster home that she had gotten sent to contained a completely pathetically small amount of food and money.

James, on the other hand, "grew up" in an absurdly luxurious mansion and often is both significantly less intelligent and significantly more prone to screaming, crying, whining, and wearing utterly ridiculous-looking costumes when compared to Jessie and Meowth due to the fact that he did so.

"I don't think that I am tough enough to be a woman!" - James

"Yeah..." - Meowth.

2 Emo Dandy (the most pathetic one of Dandy's versions of himself) - Space Dandy

Emo Dandy: Just imagine how much my life sucks. I'm stuck with sidekicks who are a scary-looking guy that I can't understand the native language of and a sickly old codger who wears a pink unitard and pretends that he is a robot. I WANNA DIE.

QT: If this guy wants to die, then why is he drinking nutritional drinks? That's kind of hypocritical if you ask me.

3 Squidward (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - SpongeBob SquarePants Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

SpongeBob has so much talent that he would probably become the greatest artist on his show if he decided to put actual effort into his life instead of just being a fry cook.

Patrick is... well, Patrick.

Sandy wastes nearly all of her talent on studying incredibly useless subjects and has an ego so big that she has nearly drowned herself just to stroke it.

Mr. Krabs is a fat and grumpy jerk whose sole purpose in life is collecting money.

Plankton has the natural ability to sneak into the brains of other characters and take control of their bodies due to his small size, but he is so incompetent that he makes this ability almost completely useless.

Squidward has a hilariously small amount of actual talent and is generally a "middle-class" person who isn't famous at all, despite constantly acting like an amazingly rich and talented celebrity.

In summary, Squidward is the only one of these characters who completely lies about who he is. He also exhibits suicidal tendencies and is generally seen as a total joke.

4 Dan Hibiki (the most pathetic member of the Bottom Tier of Street Fighter's storyline) - Street Fighter
5 Neo Cortex (the most pathetic one of Crash Bandicoot's main villains) - Crash Bandicoot Dr. Neo Periwinkle Cortex is the main antagonist of the Crash Bandicoot game series who is depicted as a mad scientist who seeks world domination.

He might not be the weakest one of them as a boss, but he definitely is the most cowardly one of them as a character.

6 Chuck (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
7 Sponge (the most pathetic one of Super Mario's fan-made re-colored versions of Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi) - Mario's Mystery Meat

His main superpower is "super crying," and Vine Rizon even tells him that he is lonely, sad, and worthless. Also, the quest that he goes on in MMM is a completely pointless one from which he gets nothing.

8 The Condiment King (the most pathetic one of Batman's weakest and worst villains) - Batman: The Animated Series
9 Twelve (the most pathetic member of the Bottom Tier of Street Fighter's gameplay) - Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

Despite how much of a terrifying monster he is in Third Strike's storyline, its gameplay's version of him is a total punching bag whose fighting style is an even more total mess that almost causes Dan Hibiki's fighting style to look like an amazing one.

10 Toiletnator (the most pathetic out of all the villains of the Kids Next Door) - Codename: Kids Next Door

He's literally the laughing stock among the Kids Next Door villains.

The Contenders
11 The Amoeba Boys (the most pathetic out of all the villains in Townsville) - The Powerpuff Girls
12 CD-i Ganon (the most pathetic one of the game's versions of Link, Zelda and Ganon) - Link: The Faces of Evil
13 Eggman (the most pathetic one of Sonic the Hedgehog's main villains) - Sonic the Hedgehog
14 Abraham Lincoln (the most pathetic one of the show's clones) - Clone High
15 Team Rocket's Meowth (the most pathetic one of the franchise's Meowths) - Pokemon
16 Goomba (the most pathetic one of the franchise's main "enemy" characters) - Super Mario Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.
17 Scudworth (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Clone High
18 Waluigi (the most pathetic one of the franchise's non-fan-made knock-offs of other ones of its characters) - Super Mario
19 Robbie Rotten (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Lazy Town
20 Zim (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Invader Zim
21 Ren (is even more pathetic than Stimpy) - The Ren and Stimpy Show
22 Joey Rooney (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Liv and Maddie
23 Tinky Winky (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Teletubbies
24 Dez (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - Austin & Ally
25 Spencer (the most pathetic member of the show's main character cast) - iCarly
