Top 10 Dumbest Decisions Made by Disney Characters

The Top Ten
1 Anna Trusting Hans - Frozen

Which is why another simple inner commoner/non royalty/peasant fits her (Anna) better than Arendelle's other royal crown princess.

Anna has only known Hans for less than a day and already she wants to marry him despite knowing very little about him, Elsa and Kristoff call her out on it and as it turns out they were right and to rub salt on the wounds Hans rubs it in her face.

At least unlike Ariel, she learns her lesson in the end. The whole point of Hans becoming the villain was to show that you can't be too trusting of someone. So Anna was basically taught a lesson.

There's a legitimate reason why Anna would be trusting of the first guy to notice her. Unlike a lot of other Disney princess, she learns from her mistake and knocks Hans' block off.

2 Pooh Leaving Rabbit's Home Using the Hole Instead of The Door - The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh

Pooh enters Rabbits house using the door and after eating all of Rabbits honey instead of going out the door he climbs through Rabbits tunnel and gets stuck, if he just used the door the same way he came in he wouldn't have gotten stuck in the hole in the first place.

3 Tinker Bell Showing Hook the Path to Peter's Hideout - Peter Pan

Hook didn't technically double cross her. He DID honor of the deal, just in a literal way (he planted a bomb in the hideout). At least hook playing his cards right. Tinker Bell technically played herself, since she didn't she only said hook HIMSELF couldn't touch peter. She left out the exploit hook used in the movie, the bomb. But that's just ONE thing hook could have done. Tinker Bell also left out hook's crew. Just feel lucky hook honored the deal at all. Someone like Maleficent sure wouldn't have.

Yeah why did tinker bell hook The path to Peter pans hideout a could of had an adventure

4 Ariel Not Telling Melody the Truth - The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

When has lying ever worked well for a character in a Disney movie the answer is almost never, In a foolish attempt to protect Melody she covers up the truth about Atlantica, merpeople, King Triton, and even a about Morgana of course everything horribly backfires for her as Melody runs off to find the truth and ends up meeting with Morgana who dupes her into stealing King Triton's Trident.

Yeah but nobody watched that movie so its all good.

She just wants to protect her daughter.

5 Gaston Stabbing the Beast in the Back Leading to His Death - Beauty and the Beast

No one stabs like Gaston,
No one dabs like Gaston,
No one betrays a beast, and dies like Gaston!

6 Scar Turning His Back on the Hyenas - The Lion King

Scar apparently wanted all of the glory and credit instead of getting the hyenas to team up against Simba, which was his fatal mistake

7 Ichabod Stopping While Being Pursued by the Headless Horseman - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Ichabod is frantically trying to escape from the Headless Horseman and for no reason stops long enough for the Horseman to throw a flaming pumpkin at his direction and he mysteriously vanishes.

8 Snow White Biting the Apple from the Queen - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Hey! A stranger offered me an apple! Nothing's suspicious about that, I should take it! I'll eat it too! It's not like it could be poison. You can trust strangers!

Snow White: A creepy old woman who clearly looks evil with a wishing apple, I'm sure there's nothing suspicious about this.

A "wishing apple." Seriously? No one Snow White's age is that naive.

And this is why you don't trust strangers kids.

9 Clayton Cutting the Vines Resulting in His Hanging - Tarzan

How could he not feel the vines tightening around his neck as he was cutting them, at least Tarzan was kind enough to try and warn him.

But that was an intentional dumb decision, so it ain't all that bad.

10 Ariel Giving Up Her Voice for Legs - The Little Mermaid

It also sends a bad message to little girls that you should be willing to give up everything for a guy you know nothing about not even sure if he will love you back, what would have happened if Eric didn't love her back she pretty much be screwed.

Needs to be higher. This was a dumb decision Ariel made; She ditched her whole family for the sake of wanting to be with some strange man she barely even knows. Not a good moral to teach little girls, honestly.

Aren't there mermen or something in that ocean? Seriously, dumb move Ariel.

Who would give up their talent for some legs to see a guy?

The Contenders
11 Mr. Incredible Shunning Buddy/Syndrome - The Incredibles

All Buddy wanted was to be Mr. Incredible's sidekick but instead he tells him to get lost and that he works alone which result in a string of events, if Mr. Incredible had been nicer to him and just accepted him as his sidekick then Buddy would never have become a villain, he never would have endangered. his family and most of the supers would still be alive.

Yeah...but if this never happened. The wonderful story developed in this movie never would have happened!

12 Scar Admitting to Simba He Killed Mufasa - The Lion King

He COULD have finished Simba off, but then he HAD to admit the truth, and then Simba realizes it's true and forces him to admit to everyone.

This should be at least 3, cause if he didn't say it, he'd have won.

Ha ha, stupidest decision ever!

13 Anna Throwing a Snowball at Marshmallow - Frozen

"She wanted to pick a fight with the most powerful character in all of fiction"
Marshmallow is no where near the most powerful character in all of fiction. Frankly I'd be surprised if he cracked top 100. Even if he was real he wouldn't be the most powerful character in real life - Unnamed Google User Remade

They could have died!

She wanted to pick a fight with the most powerful character in all of fiction

14 Lightning McQueen Helping The King - Cars

No, this was a good decision, he helped King when he was hurt rather than just abandon him and care about winning.

How is this a dumb descision? This was amazing as it helped convey the film's message.

15 Toys Refusing to Trust Woody - Toy Story

Seriously; most of the plot and conflicts that the toys encounter wouldn't even happen if everyone would just listen to Woody.

16 The Nicelanders Not Appreciating Ralph - Wreck It Ralph

First off, I think that Ralph might have been a bit mean when their game got first plugged in (y'know, the whole Calhoun backstory thingy) so I think that might have left a bit of a bad taste in the Nicelander's mouths, even after he gained his own personality and all that. Also, the Nicelanders were programmed to fear Ralph, which is also a major point, because Felix is most likely programmed to be brave and not fear him, which is why he's friendly with him. Though, that doesn't excuse them from being mean, even when they know that it's programming. Also, I'm tired of all the hate about "oh noes Felix is a jerk to Ralph he's worse then gene kill him with fire" like, did Felix ever do anything bad? Just watch the movie again and just watch him at the party scene, like when he quickly convinces the Nicelanders that he's okay after Ralph accidentally kills him, or when even after Ralph smashes the cake, Felix merely looks sympathetic for him. Just don't lay all the blame on him. Please.

This literally set the plot in motion. The Nicelanders were so unaccepting of Ralph that he decided to go out and be a hero and earn their respect, ultimately leading to their game almost being shut down because they made their villain run off!

Aren't Felix and Ralph just as important as each other?

17 Pinocchio Going to Pleasure Island - Pinocchio

Really? I mean, I get why some people hate Wreck-it-Ralph 2, but there is no way that Vanellope's decision is worse than THIS.

18 Simba and Mufasa Banishing the Whole Hyena Species from the Pride Lands - The Lion King

That's rather species-ist of them.

Yeah. Speciesism is terrible.

19 Aurora Touching the Spinning Wheel - Sleeping Beauty
20 Merida Turning Her Mother Into a Bear - Brave

Merida: Mom, I just made this cake ( or whatever is is ) for you.
Merida's mom: Oh really.
MERIDA: Yeah.
Merida's mom : Ok. I'm gonna take a bite out of it.
( She took on bite, passes out, and turns her mom into a bear.)
Merida: MOM! Are you ok? Why did I trust that evil witch? WHY? NOW THAT'S A DUMB DESISION.

21 Meg Selling Her Soul to Hades - Hercules
22 Elsa Running Away - Frozen
23 Vanellope Going Turbo to Join The Slaughter Race Game - Ralph Breaks The Internet

Seriously, a game that's uninspired and overly violent with a name to match is a child's DREAM HOME?

24 Mabel Trusting the Possessed Blendin Blandin - Gravity Falls

Your time travelling friend shows up out of the blue, saying he can make it summer forever, but says for it to work, he needs the one thing you're trying to protect to keep the main antagonist from taking over the world. How did that not raise a red flag in Mabel's mind? Then you have the moment when in Mabel Land where we're introduced to Dippy Fresh, she's basically saying she'd rather forget who Dipper really and truly was and stay with that thing that wasn't really him. She's basically she'd rather ignore the friends she's made, forget her real family, and just pretend they don't exist. All while ignoring the huge flaws in it being summer forever. I mean, hello Mabel! Summer is what killed the dinosaurs in the first place. They had no food, the cool air had become too hot, all water had run out. If it was summer everyday, airconditioning would go down, plants would burn up, water would be too hot, all ice cream in the world would melt. Here's the thing about reality. It doesn't ...more

So true.I love how both Bill Cipher and Scar manipulated to reach their goals and successed.Simba and Mabel don't know a red flag when they see one.

25 Elsa Striking Anna - Frozen

How could sh hurt her own sister?!
