The Top Ten

1 Patrick Star - SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star - SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

I still love him

I'm of course referring to modern Spongebob Patrick where they for what ever reason decided to make Patrick incredibly dumb to the point where he just comes off as dangerous an example is when Patrick has to take care of Gary for Spongebob and he nearly kills him - egnomac

People need to realize that "new", as in the actual dictionary definition of "new", SpongeBob is actually pretty good. The show sucked in Season's 6-8. Seasons 9 and 10 are actually good. They're not as good as Seasons 1-3, but I would not hesitate to say that SpongeBob is a good show again. - phillysports

Just look at the picture and you’ll know why- IceBearRules

2 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Family Guy is not really funny to me, because it has a lot of killing and death in the show. - CatLeena14

He has killed many people because of his stupid actions, Patrick is just straight up dumb

Peter has gotten to the point where that he's so stupid that he's a danger to everyone around him he does what ever reckless thing he wants with no regards to anyone else just to name a few dangerously stupid things he's done: he shot Quagmire, tried forklefting a whale only to horribly rip the poor thing apart, tried diving into room full of coins like Scooge McDuck only to break his arms and legs, and accidentally cooked his own kids. - egnomac

He from dumb but likable to an absolute terrorist. - thunderstar1124

4 Butthead - Beavis & Butthead Butthead - Beavis & Butthead Butt-Head is a fictional character from the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-Head. He is voiced by the show's creator, Mike Judge.

Both Beavis and Butthead are incredibly dumb and reckless and always causes for the people around them. - egnomac

They allegedly influenced a 3 year-old to burn down his trailer, killing his sister. Whether that's true or not, even in the show they have been known to burn down buildings and breaking laws. - GreninjaGuy

5 Captain Hero - Drawn Together Captain Hero - Drawn Together

Incredibly stupid and reckless he manages to cause more damage than actually prevent it. - egnomac

Her parents actually trust her to go out alone - blackflower

Dora: what was your favorite part of the day

Me: um I guess when-

Dora: I liked that part too. MY favorite part was when we saved the day blah blah blah

Me: *raging* EXCUSE ME I WASN'T FINISHED YET

I think we can all agree when I say Dora is greedy.

Puberty hit her like a rock

7 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Goku - Dragon Ball Z Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. ...read more.

He's actually a bigger threat to earth than the bad guys - TwilightKitsune

He's dangerously dumb in a sense that instead of killing off the villain he decides to give them the oportunity to get stronger and it almost always - egnomac

Saiyans are usually barbaric so that maybe made Goku this way when it is genetics involved. The villains are bigger threats because this person likes the Earth and villains do not as much. Unless you saw had Goku in black clothes that is a clone of Goku, known as Goku Black. That is actually Zamasu who merged with Goku to look like Goku.

His cockiness is his biggest weakness

8 Cosmo - Fairly Odd Parents Cosmo - Fairly Odd Parents Cosmo is Timmy fairy godfather. He's Wanda's husband and Poof's dad. Cosmo is very immature and stupid, but also very charming and a loving father, godfather and husband.

He's my favorite character! - Jay12

9 Buhdeuce - Breadwinners Buhdeuce - Breadwinners

Who the f is this - Lightnin9

10 Beast Boy - Teen Titans Go! Beast Boy - Teen Titans Go! Beast Boy is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually as a member of the teams Teen Titans and Doom Patrol. Created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Bob Brown, he first appeared in The Doom Patrol #99.

First of all, before I say anything, I just want to say that it should technically be Teen Titans, not Teen Titans Go, as TT was the original form of TTG. Secondly, I disagree. He's lazy, yes, but he's also pretty stupid.

The Contenders

11 Gordon Brody - Freddy Got Fingered Gordon Brody - Freddy Got Fingered

One dangerously stupid thing he did in this movie is laterally trying to pull a fetus baby from its mother's womb and if that wasn't enough he then cuts the cord with his bare teeth an that's not all he then starts swing the baby around trying to get it to cry he's almost worst than Peter Griffin. - egnomac

Whether it be out of stupidity or mental illness, Gord is a character you never want to give orders to. He will misinterpret what's said and do something heinous, even by comedy movie protagonist standards. When he's told to get insight to an animal for his cartoon, he skins a dead deer and gets inside. And that's not getting into his treatment of fetuses, which would've outright killed it. And he's stupid enough to form a father-son relationship with his abusive dad, as well. Whether Gord is stupid is up for debate, he is certainly childish in all the wrong ways. And it crossed the line of being charming upon hearing the first line of the plot synopsis, as Gord has been living with his parents for 28 years. Thankfully we live in a society where someone as dangerously stupid/childish as Gord would get thrown in jail rather quickly. - nerffan8000

12 Sanjay Patel - Sanjay and Craig Sanjay Patel - Sanjay and Craig

His name sounds Indian. - XxembermasterxX

Just look at that picture and TELL ME that he's not dumb. - Disney1994

Ugghhh that is all I can say about him - Lightnin9

13 Ed - The Lion King Ed - The Lion King

Who? - Ilovestephanie

He's still stupid even if he can't talk.

When did Ed talk? He never talked. All he does is laugh and chew on his own hind leg. He's stupid and not smart at all.

Wow, I can actually agree with the TLK hater for once. And other guys, he can talk. - 445956

16 Jeffy - SuperMarioLogan Jeffy - SuperMarioLogan

He may have a huge heart, but even if he knows what love is, he does not know that heat is his kryptonite.

I hope my Mom doesn't see this list.

42 Slippy Toad - Star Fox Slippy Toad - Star Fox

How is he dumb? He helps analyze enemy shields for Fox and is the mechanic for the Star Fox team.

He always gets himself caught up with enemies and you have to save him. - railfan99

43 Knuckles - Sonic Boom Knuckles - Sonic Boom Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

I like Sonic Boom, don't get me wrong. But Knuckles' characterization on the other hand?... NOO!

It's like it took away what made Knuckles a memorable character and turned him into what he's not. Muscles are fine, but it is still possible to make a muscular character who is still smart. So where the heck did the "muscular and dumb stereotype" come from?

Knuckles is supposed to be a smart character, not a dumb one. And yes, Knuckles is supposed to be smarter than Ed from The Lion King, not dumber. Despite what some uneducated people say otherwise. There I said it.

44 Deadpool - Marvel Deadpool - Marvel Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics.
