4 Mr. Krabs (Spongebob Squarepants) Mr. Krabs (Spongebob Squarepants) Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Yeah. Should be in the top 10. - Garythesnail

He should be in the top ten. - PizzaGuy

A greedy little liar with no remorse for his actions. He would be a perfect Ebenizer Scrooge. He would see SpongeBob homeless and starving because of his measly pay, but he still would give him 5ยข everyday. Pearl is a child abuse victim and should have been confiscated by CPS years ago. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

5 Porky Minch (EarthBound)

What? He doesn't really say anything...

8 Glenn Quagmire (Family Guy) Glenn Quagmire (Family Guy) Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy.

He molests women for crying out loud. - Connor360

Ok in gq's defense, the majority of family guy characters would be the best candidates for this list:
1. Peter griffin: awful dad, inconsiderate husband, does stupid innopropreate c**p, says stupid innopropreate c**p, and barley does anything good.

2. Glenn quagmire: yeah... Peeps on woman, sleeps around, & has tried to get with his best friend's wife.

3. Stewie griffin (earier in the series): he tries to kill his mom on multiple occasions, thinks about him partying and being around a lot of girls, puts down everyone but himself, & picks on brain on a regular basis

4. Pervy old pedophile: well... We have the problem already spelled out.

5. Mayor west: ok he is kind of like Peter, but his nice enough to not find a victim to spend the rest of his life with & do the same to his children

6. Peter's dad: not is he a judgemental @$$hole, but he makes religious people look bad. Maybe he should be higher.

7. Louis's dad: very rude, self-centered, ...more

9 Gord (Freddy Got Fingered)
10 Bart Simpson (The Simpsons) Bart Simpson (The Simpsons) Bart is the oldest child in The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Greoning. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson.

The Contenders

11 Lucas (EarthBound) V 1 Comment
12 Veku (Dragon Ball Z)

All he does is fart. - SelfDestruct

13 Gotenks (Dragon Ball Z) Gotenks (Dragon Ball Z)

Disobeyed Piccolo when he was told to take time to turn into Super Saiyan. - SelfDestruct

Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto .

What's so bad about Mario? - nintendofan126

He made my brother act retarded

He is a bad influence on children. - SelfDestruct

"Actually there is evidence. He teaches you to win by cheating. "
But everyone can do anything he isn't the only one 'cheating' so technically he's not since he's not braking any set rules to the games that they play.

17 Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto) Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto) Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Maybe in the beginning of the original Naruto... But he teaches kids confidence, to never give up, don't back down, go for what u believe in, etc... Definitely doesn't belong anywhere near the top 10.

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.

Because he's too sexy for his tunic?

19 Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros) Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros) Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in more.

She tells girls that you must always wait when your in the dungeon about to get killed by Bowser and wait for a prince. WAIT?!?! I mean, your about to get KILLLED.
Sincerely, a 9 year old.

People should really stop listening to matpat & other people who don't know what they are talking about

No she's actually a good roal model. She may get kidnapped, but she also sneeks around bowser AND all his minions to get Mario items & information.

Not only that, but she's in all sports, kart, smash, & party games. Showing she can play with the big boys (and is usually one of the more harder npcs to defeat).

Besides those games, in rpg, some pm games, & 3dw she helped Mario and co. defeat the bad guy. In 3dl she tried to escape (as well as other pm games). That right there is a good roal model

20 Rigby (Regular Show) Rigby (Regular Show) Rigby is a character from the cartoon Regular Show created by JG Quintel. He's best friends with Mordecai (A talking Blue Jay). Together they slack around and have fun in the park. A place where they work and have the risk of being fired from.

He is whiny, lazy, and dumb. Funny though.
