1 Shrek Shrek Shrek is a character debuting in the 2001 animated movie of the same name. The popular franchise has 4 films and the character himself has become recognizable to people of all ages. He has since spawned into what is most likely the most widely recognized internet meme to ever come into the world.

"Sherck" in my opinion is better than Shrek - Unnamed Google User Remade

I'm definitely skipping the remake because of this reason. Also, it was very unnecessary to make the Shrek remake, like Disney did with Toy Story 4.

Oh oh oh
Shrek is great - Luckys

Shrek is love. Shrek is life. - Misfire

7 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

The character and the entire franchise is seen as a joke nowadays. Doesn't help that two of the most despised video games ever made (according to Wikipedia) come from this franchise. Also, the trailer for his upcoming movie pretty much confirms my point.

Ever since 2006, He hasn’t been taken seriously. - JPK

Crossover shippers ruined Sonic more than anything else.
