Top Ten Fan Favourite Characters from Animated Series, Movies, or Video Games that Actually Suck

Title says it all. A list for all the fan favourite characters who don't really deserve their fame because they actually suck.

The Top Ten

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

I like Ariel but at the same time she kind of sucks, she was willing to give up her whole life and family just to be human and be with a guy she literally knows nothing about not even sure he'll love her back she just went in blindly without even once considering the consequences of her actions and just to show just how bright she is in the sequel The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea she doesn't tell Melody about merpeople or about Atlantica or the fact that King Triton is her grandfather and she even got mad at Melody for going over the wall or rather under it and even stated "You deliberately disobeyed me" like she's the one to talk considering she constantly disobeyed her own father time and time again for going to the surface. - egnomac

I think I actually understand why several of these characters are considered great even though most of the issues you say are very valid.

As for Ariel, it is explained very easily. She was the first female Disney lead character who was an authentic reflection of a youth. She is young and easy to impress, her world view is absolutely contrary to her father's, her hormones are racing, she follows dreams that are hard to achieve with an almost desparate passion, she claims independence. She is a teenager and a rebel, and on top, even though modern American feminism says an independent woman doesn't necessarily need a man (on the contrary, modern German feminism often says a woman can have many men), she was also the first Disney princess to actively go out and do something to get the prince, not the other way around, which was seen as very feminist.
So yes, Ariel made some terrible decisions, and yes, she may seem selfish, but she embodied an idea of self fulfillment and ...more - Martin_Canine

I absolutely despise Ariel! I’m okay with people liking her, but they act as if she’s perfect which she’s not! - MegaSoulhero

In general does "The Little Mermaid" have switched stereotypes. Many people complain about how little personality Eric has. And this is absolutely true. He actually does too little to develop a character that justifies the craze Ariel has for him. But from a dramaturgic point of view, this was innovative, as the prince now has the same passive role princesses usually have in most fairytales (you know, the one where the princess is captured in a tower, or asleep for the most part).
Also, let's look at Ursula and Triton. Usually, the villain is supposed to appear cruel, sinister and serious, and the parent nice, kind and maybe a bit funny. Now look at Ursula: she is curvous, sings seductively, has a lot of humorous lines, and actually has a very fun personality. Triton on the other hand is conservative, xenophobic and although loving his daughter, strict.
If you think about it that way, "The Little Mermaid" was so far off the stereotypes people were used to from these kinda of ...more - Martin_Canine

2 Mater - Cars Mater - Cars Tow Mater, or simply Mater, is a character in Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and inspired by a 1951 International Harvester tow truck.

He's nothing more than a stereotype as is basically Larry the Cable Guy voicing himself. - egnomac

3 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 had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

When you get down to it Goku is actually a pretty terrible character he's a horrible father and a horrible husband, despite being the hero of the series he's completely oblivious to just about everything not to mention he's basically an idiot, a lot of times giving the enemy the opportunity to get super strong just to have a fair fight yeah wanting to have a fair is some what understandable but when the fate if the world is at stake you just can't risk that best example back on Namek instead of destroying Frieza immediately he just lets him get stronger not to mention after Frieza accidentally cuts him in half instead of killing him he gives him some of his energy so he won't die and immediately after he does that Frieza try to attack him and in another instant he just gives Cell a sinzu bean which restores him to full health "what the hell is wrong with you Goku" why would you help the very guy who is trying to destroy the world, another note he constantly abandons his friends and ...more - egnomac

Every time he goes Super Sayian he doesn't look cool
he look like a dumb douche - MarsBlast

4 Weiss Schnee - RWBY Weiss Schnee - RWBY Weiss Schnee is a former student of Beacon Academy and one of the main protagonists of RWBY. Her weapon of choice is a Multi Action Dust Rapier (MADR) named Myrtenaster. more.

I've only saw the first 2 episodes of RWBY volume 1 and I already hate her! She was such a jerk to Ruby about the dust when It was partially her own fault that she was waving it around like a narcissistic. And she was also a jerk to Blake for telling the bad things about the Schnee Dust Company. The dust that singed her at the episode she was introduced at should've burned her alive instead - MLPFan

When your BFF makes a list and it gets featured - TwilightKitsune

5 Waluigi - Mario Waluigi - Mario Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's wicked more.

Just what the hell did Waluigi ever do to deserve any kind of fame nothing he merely exists as an extra unlike Wario who broke out and became a actual star and even started a series of spinoff games like the Wario Land franchise and The Wario Ware Inc. franchise and yet Waluigi has never starred in his own game. - egnomac

Don't be messing with my boy Waluigi here. - Garythesnail

How is WALUIGI above anime people?

Waluigi is mean and kinda useless and his name is so weird. I mean...Waluigi? It should've been, like, Wuigi or something - lovefrombadlands

6 Rainbow Dash - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Rainbow Dash - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus pony from the popular 2010 kid's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty is one of most well known characters of the show. She may be a little mean sometimes but she still does what is best for her friends .

I guess many of you already know why I despise RD so much. She deserves to be placed at #1 (by me) - MLPFan

7 Donkey - Shrek
8 Maria Imari - This Art Club Has a Problem! Maria Imari - This Art Club Has a Problem!

I've saw many guys claiming her as their waifu, but Imari isn't even that good a character. She just LOOKS like an interesting character because of her chuunibyou thing that was just there to make a running gag, by the way. In reality, she's just a mary sue. I even made a post about why she Is a mary sue. So yeah. Imari sucks. - MLPFan

9 Chiaki Nanami - Danganronpa Chiaki Nanami - Danganronpa

You all might be thinking "WUT?! WHY IS CHIAKI #3?!?!? OP, your TASTE IS TERRIBLE! CHIAKI IS BEST GRILL AND I HATE U FOR THIS! 1111! ONE! " Or If you're not an annoying, rabid Chiaki worshipper like how almost the whole DR fanbase (I am one of the very few sane members who aren't worshipping Chiaki), you might be thinking "how can she be higher than Elsa? I understand RD and Weiss, but what's wrong with Chiaki?! ". First of all, she was way too bland and mary sueish. She doesn't have any development nor depth at all despite how she's the female lead in SDR2 and Is the spotlight of DR3 - Despair. The only reason she's so popular is because she's a cute girl who loves games. Kodaka created her to be a waifu, but Kodaka made a bland, one dimensional waifu-bait Instead of a good, three dimensional waifu. - MLPFan

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

They're only obsessed with Elsa because of her looks. They only like Elsa because she's a stupid snow queen who always gets all the attention especially because of her stupid ice magic powers.

12 Asuka Langley Soryu - Neon Genesis Evangelion Asuka Langley Soryu - Neon Genesis Evangelion

Thankfully, at least she's sister-less and brother-less in canon. But at least neither she nor Shinji are siblings in canon at all and I'm glad.

Shinji did nothing to deserve to be abused by the likes of her at all, did he?

Yeah. I didn't remembered him doing something bad to her. She's such a jerk and I can't believe that she's a fan favourite - MLPFan

Thankfully, she's an only single, sibling-less, sister-less, brother-less child in canon!

She deserves worse, doesn't she?

13 Makoto Niijima - Persona 5

Over all the P5 girls, Makoto is the one whose worshipped the most. I hate Makoto because she's so bland, she has the dumbest reason to join the phantom thieves, she's the most pointless character in P5 girl, she only exists to be there (seriously, she was the "strategist" of the team, but If it weren't for Futaba and Akira, they wouldn't make it as much as they have now. Futaba is way smarter than Makoto. Period) and to make Akira's harem (you can date 9 girls or so in the game) larger, and she somehow knows things with very few explanation how, to the point it's so annoying. I hate Makoto. Ann and Futaba are way better than her. - MLPFan

14 Tatsuya Shiba - The Irregular at Magic High School

His fans always use dumb reasons to deny how he's a gary stu, but they always fail at It. - MLPFan

15 Link - The Legend of Zelda Link - The Legend of Zelda Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

When you get down to it Link is a pretty bland and boring character he has no personality and he doesn't talk though after the disaster with the Zelda CDI games and awful cartoon we really can't fault them for that. - egnomac

16 Mavis Dracula - Hotel Transylvania Mavis Dracula - Hotel Transylvania
17 Parappa - Parappa the Rapper Parappa - Parappa the Rapper

What if I told you that Um Jammer Lammy was actually the only BOYS' game of the series? Shocking, right?

(That, and also, the Colonel Noodle stage in PTR2 was literally the only one in the entire trilogy where we actually got to see him having an ACTUAL rap battle with someone) - xandermartin98

18 Yukiteru Amano - Future Diary Yukiteru Amano - Future Diary

He's just a wimp who needs Yuno to protect him because he can't protect himself. If It weren't for Yuno, he'll be the first one to die In 5 seconds. - MLPFan
