Top 10 Most Hated Movie Characters

The top most despised and hated characters in movie history.

The Top Ten

1 Dolores Umbridge - Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix Dolores Umbridge - Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

She abuses her power and makes a whole lot of crazy and ridicules rules that made life at Hogwarts difficult for everyone and her favorite form of punishment forcing students to write using their own blood. - ZZDOORAL

I totally agree, I wanted her dead! God she's just a horrible movie character and yet I still love the character just for how cruel she is

When I was reading the book I just wanted to punch her in the face, or that someone in the book will do that.

I knew she should be here

2 Jar Jar Binks - Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Jar Jar Binks - Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series more.

PLOT TWIST: I never hated Jar Jar, unlike everyone else. I'm not trying to say he was good or anything, but there are certainly worse. Keira Knightley in the same movie is actually worse from what I've heard from The Unusual Suspect. - CrimsonShark

His presence is insulting to the intelligence of any prequel viewers, he should have been martyred heroically or at least gruesomely

He doesn't really have a purpose. He's just an annoying freak of nature that needs to die! - NerdyPweeps

Heesa not the sith lord meesa the sith lord.

3 Nurse Ratched - One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest

She's the nurse from hell who deserves to die. - ZZDOORAL

ARRRGGH. This woman. Damn it.

4 Olivia Foxworth - Flowers in the Attic

There's a good reason why Corrine never talked about her mother to her children, she always hated her own grandchildren all because their mother married their uncle and she deems them as the product of sin and in order to keep their existence from her husband she locks them away in the attic where they suffer her cruel treatment including smashing Cathy's music Box giving by her late father and later cutting off her hair with scissors, I would have been a lot more satisfied if the kids had killed her off along with their horrible mother. - ZZDOORAL

5 Lotso - Toy Story 3 Lotso - Toy Story 3

He's actually one of my favorite movie villains of all time. He;s pure evil - PeeledBanana

He took over Sunny Side Daycare and runs it like a prison camp, the most infuriating thing about him was even after Woody and Buzz save him at the dump he turns on them after they throw him on the ledge to stop the machine. - ZZDOORAL

"Where's your kid now, Sheriff! " Enough said.


6 Vernon Dursley - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

There is no way that Jar Jar is worse than this!

He's very mean to Harry. - Darkusmaximus

Terrible character - codydoestuff

For the Record, Jar Jar was a good natured gungan who always wanted to help. He was very trusting. This led to him being manipulated by palpatine, but it is a good trait. He doesn't deserve all the death threats and Star Wars parodies involving him dieing in a brutal way.

Vernon is just a douchebag.

7 Prince John - Robin Hood (1973)

I love how Disney made one of the worst monarchs in history famous again. He was so bad that he was forced to sign the Magna Carta which eventually led to Disney making him into a clown. You did this on yourself John.

He's nothing but a coward and a total crybaby who always cries out for his mother. - ZZDOORAL

He is a crybaby and a coward.

8 Beni Gabor - The Mummy
9 Howard Saint - The Punisher

As if killing Frank Castle wasn't enough for him but he orders his men to kill his whole family all because his son was accidentally killed. - egnomac

10 Timothy E. Upham - Saving Private Ryan

Most coward piece of garbage ever. Never wanted to beat someone up so bad

Well upham is not a soldier kids. War is not like Call Of Duty - Marine_Soldier

Made me burn with anger at his cowardice

Cowardly bastard.

He is featured in the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, and their corresponding film adaptations, and the as yet unfinished novel Midnight Sun—a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward's perspective. more.

A creepy, stalking, sexist, racist, murderous bastard who is suppose to be the hero.

I vote Edward because he doesn't deserve to be below Prince John

Twilight Saga and it's Cast suck! End of Story

The number of memes I've seen him on... he's just a joke

12 Percy Wetmore - The Green Mile

How is Percy not higher? Just when you think Percy can't do anything worse, he does something that makes you wish more and more that he would get molested by a bear.

People like him really exist.. That's the problem

He is sissy, hateful, arrogant. He reaped what he sowed in the end.

He is one cruel bastard.

13 Mrs. Carmody - The Mist

She's a religious nutjob. Do I need to say more? - LucasMota

14 Commodus - Gladiator

How the hell is Jar Jar Binks more hated than this douche!?

How is he even an "emperor"!? He's like a big baby that everyone hates EVEN IN THE MOVIE-

15 Capt. Byron Hadley - The Shawshamk Redemption

Within the first couple of minutes he brutally beats a prisoner to death. - egnomac

Nortons quote to Andy later; "It broke Captain Hadley's heart to shoot Tommy"? I know it's a lie, but bull! Everyone should know at that point that Hadley loves hurting people! Hell, he's willing to throw Andy off the roof in front of two dozen people just because Andy stepped out of line?
Some characters don't actually deserve to be on this list, but I'm glad Hadley is as high as he is. - SeekerSpock

16 Anakin Skywalker - Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Anakin Skywalker - Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Anakin Skywalker is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. He appears in the original trilogy as a main and pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel trilogy.

Get him off the list! He wasn't that bad.

He wasn't terrible.

He was awful and never really a bad ass he killed cute little Jedis

17 Hans - Frozen

He dupes poor Anna into falling in love with him and then reveals that he never was in love with her and was only going to marry her to take over the kingdom and just leaves her to die. - egnomac

Loved the movie but really hated Hans he was going to kill Elsa until Anna came in and saved her. - Darkusmaximus

Hans got punch in the face and he's now punish at the end

How is this douchebag so low?! - 906389

18 The Queen of Hearts - Alice in Wonderland
19 Buzz McCallister - Home Alone Series

He's a butt hole

Buzz is a jerk who is rotten to the core. He should get mauled by a grizzly bear, tiger, and a pack of wolves for being a pure bully to Kevin. There is a devilish look on Buzz's face and I hate it.

Buzz is cruel and downright selfish to Kevin. I deserves to be torn to shreds by a grizzly bear, a Bengal tiger, a pack of wolves, and then get stung by a bunch of scorpions after.

I wish a Velociraptor or a Gremlin could kill him. Steele from Balto got his just desert, so why can't Buzz?

20 Warden Samuel Norton - The Shawshank Redemption
21 Corrine Dollanganger - Flowers in the Attic

Ignoring the fact that she married her uncle, she was a terrible mother for bring her children to her parents house for them to be locked up and tormented by their grandmother, the thing that infuriated me about her was later on she leaves them up their to die while she plans to marry again not only that but she tries to poison her own children one of her son dies all to keep herself from being disinherited and losing of her money. - ZZDOORAL

22 Hopper - A Bug's Life

He forces the ants into gathering food for him and the grasshoppers, and when he realizes after Flick stands up to him all the other ants might rise up against them he goes back with the intention to kill the queen to remind them who's boss. - ZZDOORAL

I disagree he is awesome and meant to be hateable.


23 Timon - Lion King Timon - Lion King

He and Pumbaa ruined the movie that is why I hate them both

He's Hitler's favorite character

He's gay

24 Linda Jefferson - Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series

She is too joyful. must've taken drugs

25 Ian Breckel - The Condemned

He gathers all these criminals make them fight to the death films it and puts it on the internet all the while he rigs the whole game by supplying weapons to certain individuals and all the while he does not once feel guilty for what he's doing. - ZZDOORAL

26 Steele - Balto

Steele is an egotistical jerk who prides himself on being the best and only cares about himself, after he and the other dog sled team get stranded while delivering medicine for the children Balto comes to his aid but Steele being the selfish jerk he is refuses to let him help a fight breaks out and Steele falls of the edge but survives and to insure Balto and the team don't make it back he gets them lost by marking all the trees so Balto can't find his way back, the fact that he's willing to let innocent children die just to keep Balto form being the hero is just plain despicable. - ZZDOORAL

I agree. Steele is unlikable at times, but give his voice actor Jim Cummings some credit.

27 Lex Murphy - Jurassic Park
28 Rachel Dawes - Dark Knight Trilogy

She gave up on Bruce and choice Harvey Dent

She died in vain when Harvey became a villain and Catwoman became Bruce's new love interest.

Rachel died alone

33 The Hunter Who Shot Bambi's Mom - Bambi
34 Pumbaa - Lion King
35 Skyler White - Breaking Bad

She's so annoying that it counts even despite she is not a movie character.

36 Darren Cross - Ant Man
37 Vic Hoskins - Jurassic World

He was trying to use the dinosaurs as weapons and he was still going to use them after it failed miserably

He's a retard and he endangered many lives

Say what you want about Vic, I think he's entertaining unlike those piece of crap accuses of villains known as Ken Wheatly and Eli Mills because they are bland, dumb, and just plain cartoony for movie series that's more serious and dark.

38 Kate McCallister - Home Alone Series
