Top 10 Dumb Decisions Made by Disney Characters


The Top Ten

1 Anna Trusting Hans - Frozen

Why do people hate Hans or complain about how his motivations are terrible? Because if Elsa and Anna died, then some other relative would take the throne, well, THAT COULD NEVER HAPPEN because neither Elsa nor Anna had any other relatives left, and Hans is a prince from the Southern Isles, so that means Hans would be the only person that could take the throne, see!

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. - phillysports

I kind of understand because Anna was cut off from the world and Hans was the only guy who didn't alienate her. - TwilightKitsune

Snow White and Rose Red are better sisters than Anna and Elsa, aren't they?

Snow White and Rose Red and the enchanted prince and his brother the other prince are better siblings than Elsa and Anna and even Kristoff and Hans, right?

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

All he had to do was walk away and married one of the other woman but instead he had to get one last blow in by stabbing The Beast which causes Gaston's own downfall as Beast moves his arms back Gaston loses his grip and plummets to his death. - egnomac

Seriously leave Frozen alone - 445956

Literal backstabber. - naFrovivuS

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

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

It really shows that Ariel didn't deserve to be Melody's mother at all, doesn't it? In fact, it really shows that Ariel wasn't worthy to be Melody's mother at all. If I were Ariel, I'd let Melody know about mer-people, Atlantic-a and even her own maternal grandfather, King Triton.

Little Mermaid 2: Return To The Sea would've been better if Melody had known about mer-people, Atlantic-a and even her own maternal extended family, right?

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. - egnomac

Personally, I hate Ariel (sorry for the Ariel fans! ) because she's a selfish girl since the first movie, and in the sequel, she's a bad mother who's making the poor Melody unhappy and Ariel didn't protect her daughter from the mockers the same children who laughed at Melody during the ball. I mean, Ariel's my hated Disney girl (or princess but whatever) as I hate Simba from The Lion King 1 & 2: Simba's Pride!

PS: Ariel's sisters, Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Attina, Adella and Alana and Melody are more beautiful than that stupid Ariel!

4 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. - egnomac


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

Scar really should have taken his own advice and be prepared after Simba returns he tries to comvince him it was the hyenas plan all along of course he doesn't buy it and the hyenas are not too happy about Scar throwing them under the bus after he falls they're waiting at the bottom and they rip him apart. - egnomac

Referencing Scar's own song just makes this more ironic and funny somehow... - CrimsonShark

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

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

Out of anger for Wendy Tinker Bell foolishly shows Hook the location to Peter's hideout on a map in order for him to kidnap Wendy of course after she makes Hook promise not to land a hand or a Hook on him and of course he double crosses her he kidnaps not only Wendy but the Lost Boys as well and delivers a bomb to Peter. - egnomac

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

Man Tinker bell was stupid doing that

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. - egnomac

Most idiotic thing to do. You just can't \_o$e ¥ou® H€@|) in this kind of situation.

8 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. - egnomac

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

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

Moments before this the dwarfs warn her about strangers and to watch out for the Queen of course all that gets thrown out the window and she completely trusts the Queen disguised as an old woman and of course she stupidly believes everything she says which results in her falling into a deep sleep after biting the poison apple. - egnomac

Snow White was 14. Anyways, maybe old women going to your houses giving away fruit was not as weird back them as it would be now. - Lucretia

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

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

10 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. - Disney1994

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

He was SO CLOSE to finishing Simba off but no he just had to tell the truth - Randomator

The Newcomers

? Simba and Nala Go to the Elephant Graveyard - The Lion King

The Contenders

11 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. - egnomac

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.

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

I would have said B*TCH! - Andyman

12 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. - egnomac

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

13 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. - AnimeDrawer

How was this dumb? If anything Chick Hicks was the dumb one - Randomator

More Like Smart Decision Because It Shows That McQueen Now Cares About Others - JPK

What why you put it in bad decisoion It is good decision to help The King from crashed. So now Lighting learn lesson not only caring wining. - David39

14 Anna throwing a snowball at Marshmallow - Frozen

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

They could have died!

It would've been better if Marshmallow was created during Elsa's childbirth infancy in canon, right?

Especially all because Anna had too much time in the movie anyway.

15 Toys Refuse to Trust Woody - Toy Story

Lol, 2-3 of the plots are because they didn't believe woody. - mattstat716

Seriously; most of the plot and conflicts that the toys encounter wouldn’t even happen if everyone would just listen to Woody. - SoulEater8

16 Elsa Singing Let It Go - Frozen

Frozen was supposed to be actually about THE Snow Queen which it wasn't really at all. Worst of all, poor Elsa's more of only just a plot device than an actual character when Elsa should've been properly portrayed to be an actual character instead of only just a plot device (glaring at all the creators, writers, directors and filmmakers of Frozen in pure indignation, fury, rage and anger)

(To Elsa's parents, the king and queen of Aren-delle) If your little girl, Elsa was born with a magic curse that could get worse because of her fear towards the powers, then don't try to help her with the fear at all. Instead of showing her love, how to embrace not only just her ice magic powers but also herself for who she really was or still is too like you should've done back then before in Elsa's past life back when she was eight back then, especially in her early childhood, you just had to lock her away for years making her more scared of the powers anyway, didn't you? No wonder she banished herself from Aren-delle because neither of you did nor said anything to free her from being isolated in Aren-delle at all like you should've done back then before.

Elsa thinks she has no control over her powers, yet is able to build a perfectly structured castle and make a new ice dress on command. That seems pretty in control to me, any of you too or no?

Her parents could've had an ice skating rink since the beginning but no, instead, they just had to make Elsa ashamed, scared and lock her away anyway!

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

That's rather species-ist of them. - PerfectImpulseX

Yeah. Speciesism is terrible.

18 The Nicelanders Not Appreciating Ralph - Wreck It Ralph

All Ralph wanted was to be appreciated for doing his job but the nicelanders are jerks who treat him like a parasite they don't even invite him to the anniversary party even though he is more important to the game than Fix-It Felix, the next day when the arcade opens no Ralph and their game is put out of commission and clearly shows that the characters are nothing without Ralph to wreck the bulling's which means even the hero Fix-It Felix is nothing without him and the same can be said for every hero and bad guy relationship in video games without the bad guy the hero is nothing, without the bad guy wrecking havoc and chaos then theirs no point to the adventure. - egnomac

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! - Phillip873

Is this really a 'decision'? - DapperPickle

19 Meg Sells Her Soul to Hades - Hercules
20 Elsa Ran Away - Frozen

Yes, running away may not have been the best way to handle the situation, but can you honestly say that you wouldn't freak out to some degree if you accidentally unleashed paranormal capabilities in front of a large crowd of strangers?
