Most Overrated Fictional Characters of All Time

Some characters in fiction get way more attention than they deserve while more interesting characters are ignored. Who do you think is the most overrated fictional character of all time? (Note: This is not a list for characters you hate. A character could be an interesting an engaging character and still be overrated by the public or the franchise's fandom. )
The Top Ten
1 Bendy (Bendy and The Ink Machine) Bendy, occasionally referred to as "the Dancing Demon" is the titular antagonist of TheMeatly Games' indie horror game Bendy and the Ink Machine. He is an inky demon with a wide grin and a thin build, and he wears a bow tie on his chest.
2 Sans (Undertale) Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult boss fight, bad puns, and the phrases "geeetttt dunked on!!!" and "you're gonna have a bad time."... read more

Not trying to be salty here, but I seriously don't get why people think he's so powerful when he has ONLY 1 HP and his attack power is only 1 as well. I mean, he launches a bunch of bones at you at once, but each of them only does very little damage. And sure, he dodges, but still... He isn't as powerful as many claim him to be. Not to mention, he got killed by a kid, not with a bomb, not with a nuke, not with a machine gun, but with just a plain ol' knife.

Also, I feel like half of the people only like him because of Megalovania. It's a good soundtrack, don't get me wrong. I totally get we all have different opinions, but still...

Everywhere you look, everywhere you are, it's Sans! He'll keep on coming for ya. Yes, he's become so overrated that I am beginning to hate him. I never even liked him in the first place. I mean, he's just a skeleton. If a skeleton said, "Hey, wanna go to Grillby's?", most people would scream. I don't know where I'm going with this.

Most people say that they don't hate on Sans ships (he doesn't deserve a capital letter) but I'm going to say here that I hate Fontcest and Frans, and worst of all, Sanscest. Yes. I mean, how narcissistic are you? Don't be like Mettaton. If I see another Paperjam's Daycare, I'll barf. No. Just no.

Everyone loves him. He has a tragic backstory. He gets the girl. He has superpowers. He has only one flaw, and that's this rare rock thing. He is literally perfect. He's a Gary Stu.

5 Elsa (Frozen) Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

Easily one of the worst characters ever made, all of the crap called Frozen is overrated.
