Fictional Characters Ruined by Memes

The Top Ten
1 Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

Knuckles is badass and it's a damn shame Ugandan Knuckles exist. Don't know the point either ( Sanic is a different story)
- Stakamakataka And Knuckles

2 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.

Someone should add Cory Baxter from Cory in the House because he is ruined by his show's memes about being called "the greatest anime of all time".

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.

I remember seeing the 4th film in theatres... Now it's ruined by the Cory fanbase, which was bad enough.

It's also pretty sad to know that he's literally more famous than Mike Myers these days.

3 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

SpongeBob Square Pantis is not the best cartoon ever because it's just a meme tool on entire internet facebook, instagram, twitter, and anything.

I get sick to death of hearing this show get mentioned and referenced all the time.

The memes didn't ruined him, they just overloaded him.

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

Of course, Mr krab's a selfish greedy person.

His greedy personality ruined him.

Are you feeling it now, Mr Krabs?

Oh yeah, Mr krabs!

5 Robbie Rotten Robbie Rotten (played by Stefán Karl Stefánsson) is a lazy man who continuously formulates feckless schemes in which he masquerades in a disguise to lure the residents away from their newly-active lifestyles. He passionately abhors the influence of Stephanie and Sportacus on the townspeople. A number ...read more.

Actually, the memes got him much better off. The memes were made to make people aware of his cancer and to encourage people to help him get enough money to pay for treatment. The memes are also good.

The meme do opposite of ruined Robbie Rotten. They actually made him better

6 Patrick Star Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, and he is one of the 10 main characters in the show. He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show. Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist ...read more.

I look up patrick star memes and half of them are blocked bc some of the memes are really bad

7 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.

Crossover shippers ruined Sonic more than anything else.

Ever since 2006, He hasn't been taken seriously.

8 Willy Wonka
9 Pepe the Frog

He already sucks.

10 Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

14 Crash (Crash Bandicoot) Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

The Crash meme wasn't even funny, at least now it's dead.

He got killed twice in Endgame.

18 Squidward Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.
19 Thomas the Tank Engine

I hated this show when I was little, but I think the meme is ok.

20 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows ...read more.

Good character. Bad fanbase.

You guys seriously need to read my new fanfic where she goes inside Dr. Paula Hutchison's brain and tears it apart FROM the inside with her bare hands

24 Sans Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult ...read more.

I'm not even into Undertale but his fanbase is so annoying! What weirdo finds a skeleton attractive?
