Top 10 Worst Female Disney Role Models

There are quite a lot of female Disney characters out there that can be bad influences. This doesn’t mean all of them are bad characters though.
The Top Ten
1 Elsa Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

She is such a bad influence for kids. I remember loving this movie when it first came in theaters and I actually watched it in the theater. I thought it was a good movie, but I hate Else so much in this movie now that I think about it. I get that she ran away because she was scared, but you should really learn to face your problems head on and not run away from them, and that is not what she was teaching kids by running away. She almost killed her sister and put so many other people in danger because of her actions. I get that she was scared and felt she had to run away, but it really isn't a good lesson to learn from a Disney character. She is a bad role model, but in the end, I still think she learned from her mistakes, which is a good lesson to kids.

2 Joy Joy is the main protagonist of the 2015 Disney/Pixar animated feature film "Inside Out". She is one of the five emotions inside of Riley Andersen's mind and serves as the leader. Hence her name she is very positive and optimistic and wants nothing more but for Riley to be happy.

Amy Poehler is the most annoying thing on the planet. It's Joy's job to make sure that Riley is happy. Which is good, but she doesn't realize that sometimes people need to be sad to get through life. She pretty much tries to keep Sadness away at all times. There was even a moment in the movie when she decided to leave Sadness behind and not let her go back to headquarters. She managed to learn her lesson in the end, unlike Ariel, but still. She nearly tried to kill Sadness. Inside Out is still one of my favorite Pixar movies. Joy is just not a great character or a great role model. Especially since she's voiced by Amy Poehler.

3 Tiana Princess Tiana of Maldonia is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog.

If you're only kind to the people you get along with, then that's not the definition of kindness. That takes zero effort. Try being kind to people who stifle your dreams, hate your guts, and punish you constantly. Tiana is not kind to those whom she doesn't get along with. So, the fact is she isn't kind.

4 Ariel Princess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.

No argument here. She leaves her amazing life and risks getting everything destroyed for the sake of getting together with a human. I would've been more forgiving of this if her under sea life was terrible. But they go out of their way to show us how great she has it. So she's just a spoiled brat. Besides, what would've happened if Eric didn't love her back. He could've been gay for all she knows. Ariel would've been screwed. Ariel is so dumb that she is literally the EXACT opposite of Stephen Hawking! Too soon? Ariel is the worst thing to ever happen to this world! She is such a poorly written character! Even Jar Jar Binks is a better character than she is! She has absolutely no redeeming qualities! I don't know why people look up to her! If you can explain to me in detail how she is a good role model, I will take back everything I said.

5 Megara Meg is a heroine from the Disney movie Hercules. Meg is the love interest for, the protagonist, Hercules. Meg sold her soul to Hades for her boyfriend's freedom. However, the (soon to be ex) boyfriend ended up cheating on her. Meg is scared of getting hurt again. However, once she sees how genuine Hercules's... read more

She is such a (air horn)! She is my least favorite character in Hercules! And that says a lot! She pretty much does nothing but make smart aleck comments. She acts like she doesn't care about anything. Susan Egan is a great actress, but this isn't the kind of character people should imitate. I don't think people would want to be around other people like this. I've actually met people like this and they get on my nerves. It's not cool. It's not funny. It's just terrible.

Megara is also a jerk for betraying Hercules when he is always loving her.

6 Merida Princess Merida is a fictional character from Pixar's first ever Disney Princess film, Brave. She is a talented archer who wishes that she were not destined to become the Elegant Queen of Dun Broch. She is forced into a marriage betrothal by her mother, with whom she has a very negative relationship... read more

Merida is so annoying to me. First of all, she never listened to her mother, she went to a witch, got a potion, poisoned her mother with that potion, and then her mother turned into a bear. She is just a moody teen that wants everything her way, and that is just not a good lesson for kids. You are not always going to have everything your way, and that is just how life works. She runs away from her problems too and she almost got her mother killed. I do like the fact though that she doesn't think that she needs a prince like every other Disney princess out there, and it makes me happy knowing that she can at least show kids that you don't always need a man or a woman to get through life.

7 Vanellope Von Schweetz

She's pretty much the definition of an annoying kid. She straight up steals Ralph's medal that he wanted so desperately to win so he can prove to everyone that bad guys can earn medals and she uses it as a coin to become a racer. If she wanted the medal so bad, she could've just asked. And again, she is just extremely annoying. This is the opposite of how kids should act. I don't hate her. I think she's adorable, but she is pretty irritating at times. I'm glad I got to see Sarah Silverman in person at the D23 Expo along with the other Disney princess voice actors. If they actually make Vanellope an official Disney princess after Wreck-it Ralph 2, that would be hilarious.

8 Tinker Bell Tinker Bell, is a fictional character from J. M. Barrie's 1904 play Peter Pan and its 1911 novelization Peter and Wendy.

Only good thing I can say about her is that she has a nice butt. Also, she's voiced by Katara. So that's another thing worth noting. Tink has a lot of anger issues. She gets so jealous of Peter and Wendy that she actually tries to kill Wendy. Aren't fairies supposed to be the nicest creatures alive? There have been numerous times when I have had a crush on a girl and I would often find out that the girl I have a crush on already has a boyfriend. But I don't go out of my way to get rid of the boyfriend. I just try to get over it and move on. In some ways, Tink and I are kind of the same. She has anger issues and I have anger issues. At least I've been keeping my anger under control for the most part. As long as I don't have to watch that awful Taylor Swift music video with her awful dance moves again, then I'm fine.

9 Queen Iduna
10 Shank (Ralph Breaks the Internet)

Fixed that earlier comment: I don't care if she's a lesbian! You don't convince little kids to join your violent edgelord gang! Especially not behind their friend's back.

Driving like a maniac and using assault weapons is cool. And anyone who thinks otherwise is just a stupid insecure manbaby. That's the message she sends.

The Contenders
11 Rey (Star Wars) Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's... read more

Disney, please stop with forced feminism. I mean, if Rey can become a Jedi without being trained, are you saying that it can happen to all female characters and male characters need training? I'm sure it's a no. Rey is such a corrupted character so she deserves to turn into the Dark Side in episode 9.

12 Captain Marvel Ms. Marvel is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics.

A perfect example of forced feminism. I can't believe Disney/Marvel called her "the strongest avenger" even though we have stronger characters like Thor, Hulk, and Dr Strange. Her powers are lame and all she does is just blast things. She belongs with the ghostbusters reboot.

Brie Larson, who plays her, definitely is.

13 Anna Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

Someone keeps going to my worst things about Olaf's Frozen Adventure list each day just to keep voting for Anna. As I'm being shown in the notifications section in my messages. I literally have no idea why. And I'm pretty sure it's just one person who's constantly doing it. So I mainly added Anna to this list to experiment. She is still not a very good role model though. She meets a handsome guy and then is immediately willing to marry him. Even though most people don't get engaged until after a few months or more. And these two only met on that day, started dating that day, and got engaged that day. This doesn't make Anna a bad character though considering she hasn't left the castle in 10 years. So she got a little two excited. Plus, she learned her lesson at the end. Still, when someone asks you for your hand in marriage after only going out for such a short time, you shouldn't immediately say yes. Just one day isn't enough time to get to know each other. Also, ANNA AND HANS ARE NOT A COUPLE!

14 Snow White Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

Snow White is a very underrated Disney princess. I honestly consider her to be one of my favorites. Not just because she's the very first Disney princess to ever be created, but also because she has a kind heart and she is very cute. However, I feel like she is too kind. The Evil Queen disguises herself as Miley Cyrus and tricks Snow into eating a poisonous apple. I have no idea why she would trust her. First of all, she should know better than to talk to strangers. Second of all, the Evil Queen in disguise didn't seem very trustworthy. If I were Snow, I would've run away. Let this be a lesson for you. Don't accept apples from strangers.

15 Nebula Nebula is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she is portrayed by Karen Gillan.
16 Evil Queen

Why is she the lowest on the list?

17 Mei Lee (Turning Red)

She was drawing sexy inappropriate stuff and attacked Tyler over a matter that had nothing to do with him.

18 Ming Lee (Turning Red)
19 Aurora Aurora is a fictional character from the popular Disney Film, Sleeping Beauty and the 2015 Live Action Release, Maleficent. She is commonly known as Sleeping Beauty and is one of the group Disney Princesses. She is a unique Disney Princess as in her film, Sleeping Beauty, she has a total of 18 minutes... read more
20 Sofia (Sofia the First) Sofia is the protagonist of the animated television series "Sofia the First." She becomes a princess after her mother marries King Roland II. Sofia embodies kindness, courage, and adaptability as she navigates the challenges of royal life and learns valuable lessons about friendship, leadership, and... read more
21 Alma Madrigal
22 Princess Atta (A Bug’s Life)
23 Ella

Disney remakes suck. This movie for example ruins a perfectly good character. If you like this character, you probably haven't seen the original movie. Ella is way too nice. She always sees the good in people no matter how mean they are. This is a nice trait, but sometimes you have to accept that not everyone is a good person. Just look at our current president. The original Cinderella was kind but still had a spine. Ella pretty much tells us that if you don't do anything, something good will happen to you as shown when she gets locked in her room. Not only that, but she makes it seem like only looks matter. As if all women should care about is being pretty. The entire movie is sexist. I hate Ella. Terrible character.

24 Pocahontas Pocahontas is a title character in Disney's 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
25 Holley Shiftwell (Cars 2)
