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

She's an annoying tsundere - MLPFan

Why didn't she died?
Die Asuka, DIE! - MLPFan

2 Haruhi Suzumiya - Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya - Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya is the title character and female protagonist of the Haruhi Suzumiya series created by Nagaru Tanigawa.
3 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

4 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

5 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

Okay is it just me or are the first three characters the same first three characters in egnomacs remix

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’m going to ignore this list

6 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. 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

Madokami has a way higher power level. so overrated.

7 Bayonetta - Bayonetta Bayonetta - Bayonetta Bayonetta, real name Cereza, is a fictional character and protagonist of the video game Bayonetta and its sequel, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega and Nintendo respectively.
8 Blake Belladonna - RWBY Blake Belladonna - RWBY

Unoriginal, boring character that doesn't actually impact the plot. Seriously, if Blake weren't in the show, the plot doesn't change at all. - Sop

9 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 partner. 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?

Why does everyone love Waluigi and why is he talked about so much? waluigi never really did anything to deserve the fame.

10 Donkey - Shrek

The Contenders

11 Diva - Blood+ Diva - Blood+
12 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.

Why is she here? She’s best girl. - Legatus

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

13 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

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

*what do you mean she is ugly - 445956

What do you kean she is ugly? - 445956

If you're a child, you love Elsa because she's so pretty and powerful and kind
But If you're older, you despise Elsa because she's such a brat and you realize how ugly she actually Is - MLPFan

15 Derpy Hooves - My Little Pony Derpy Hooves - My Little Pony Derpy Hooves is a female Pegasus from the 2010s kids show My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. She is described as dumb and clumsy. Her occupation is a delivery mare.

Many of you can flame me for making Derpy here, but really she doesn't deserve her fame. She just have derpy eyes and Isn't even an important character. Yet she has a ton of fans just for having derpy eyes. She's cute, sure (I'm being honest here. I don't hate Derpy and I found her as super cute, but she's really overrated) but she gets way too much recgonition for a background character. That made me thought of,
What if another background pony like Lyra get derpy eyes, will she be as popular as derpy or not?
Seriously. - MLPFan

16 Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Simpson - The Simpsons Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.
17 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 2010 kid's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty and is one of the 6 main characters on the show. more.

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

18 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

19 Erza Scarlet Erza Scarlet Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail. Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. more.
20 Drew - Pokemon

He's nothing more than a Gary Oak clone. - egnomac

21 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

22 Mulan - Mulan Mulan - Mulan Fa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

Whine, mope, oops Dad got drafted, oops they know I have the wrong genitals, saved a country that probably wasn't worth saving in the long run given trade issues

Oh!.. I don't hate this girl, she is one of my favorite Disney princess - Sugarcubecorner

Let me guess, trolls? Mulan was the perfect princess! - 445956

Not a perfect princess. She spent most of the movie worrying over being found out, and let's face it was just mopey and angsty most of the time. And people give her way too much credit 'cause Grrrl Powah

26 Yukiteru Amano - Future Diary Yukiteru Amano - Future Diary

27 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?

EVERYONE hates her BUT ME! And I was JUST on one of my own lists (Top 10 Unpopular Opinions of TheTopTens User Disney1994) and talking about how much I HATE having unpopular opinions, and Liv is a PERFECT example! Seriously, WHY is it good that I love this stereotypical girly girl?! Yet this stereotypical girly girl is a FAR better person than me! NOTE: I liked her normal voice better. But I KINDA like the higher pitched voice because it's kinda cute.

Can someone PLEASE tell me that it's NOT true that characters like Liv Rooney and Ariel actually suck?! I love BOTH these characters for similar reasons. I know EXACTLY why Ariel was not satisfied with her life. I'M NOT SATISFIED WITH MINE AT ALL!

I'd be satisfied with knowing EVERYONE likes Liv or AT LEAST can stand her AT ALL! But NO! Almost EVERYONE IN THE WORLD hates her!

She's STILL way better than me, because she CAN think of other people, and I CAN'T!

Also, I hate that she never got an official ...more - Disney1994
