Meanest Cartoon Characters of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

How is he not in the top 3! At least characters like Squidward (SpongeBob Squarepants), Benson (Regular Show), and Tom (Tom and Jerry) have the excuse of living an awful life or having characters who annoy them on purpose. Plus, they can occasionally be nice. When has Cartman even been nice unless he benefits from it? And don't even get me started on the horrendous things he's done. He's pretty much the cartoon version of Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones: bratty, sadistic, and pure evil. The only other character that I could possibly see at number 1 is Ren from Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon," and speaking of which, why isn't Ren (the Adult Party Version in particular) on this list? And why isn't he number 1?

Cartman's one of the meanest cartoon characters, he's a narcissist, and a psychopath, he's also racist and mouth fouled, but he doesn't deserve to be that high because that's what makes him one of the funniest characters on South Park

He killed hundreds of hippies, he made fun of cancer, he is racist, he is sexist, and he worships Hitler! (But he's still awesome) - Popsicles

How is he below Squidward? Squidward just has anger issues, but Cartman is pure evil! He should be on the number one spot

2 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.

If you watched One Coarse Meal, My opinion on him went from good to BAD! Needs and deserves to be in rank 1 Cares roo much about money. Everyone does though right? "Married to Money" is a REAL LIVE EPISODE of Spongebob Squarepants. Plankton is also my favorite so to know Krabs is way too mean to Plankton is just..Wrong. Krabs is horrible and needs to go to school. Sport Krabs! You need to just cry a river,build a bridge,and get OVER IT! They should make "Mr.Krabs version of One Coarse Meal." Then ill have a favorite episode. Krabs is my least favorite and note no villains,killers in the Bikin bottom world,and other evil fish are not included on my Least Favorite Spongebob Characters. So I might need to stop taking up space. Adios.

All he seems to care about is money

Even meaner than Squidward. - KalloFox34

How is he not first? - Userguy44

3 Squidward - Spongebob Squarepants Squidward - Spongebob Squarepants Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He was very mean in Fools in April and Naughty Nautical Neighbours. - IceBearRules

Here's a fact about me: When I was little, Squidward used to be my all-time least favorite Spongebob character because of what he did to Spongebob in Fools in April (despite apologizing) and how mean-spirited he is overall. (My new all-time least favorite is Puffy Fluffy, by the way.) - Jasmine21064

I can blame him if I want I hate him

I hate him

4 Eustace Bagge - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

True. Somebody call PETA.

He is so grumpy he can't even pet a dog without being nice

Well, this guy often been grumpy and mad all the time ever since the squid made his first debut. The farmer who often scared and tormented an innocent cowardly pink canine and neglected his own wife by watching T.V. and reading newspapers without even care about. He also cared about being rich since he was holding some weird artifacts (such as a slab of King Ramses or an atomic carrot grew into a giant size). He often screwed up during or at the end of the episode which he deserved to get his horrifying fate which he does'nt have any memory of the incident.

But by the way, Eustace Bagge was a legend.

5 Caillou - Caillou Caillou - Caillou

If I were his parents He would get smacked so many times for crying over little things

He throws tantrums like a baby and he is worse than Barney. - andrewteel



6 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

The STUPID Fatman deserves to get beaten up!

He gave Stewie drugs, farts in Meg's face, tried to marry his son Chris to get money, he attempted to bond with Stweie by abusing and attempting to kills Lois, destroyed Brian's teeth, shot his own friend in the arm for no reason, shows no remorse for killing people or animals, and destroys other people's property without feeling guilt. I think he should be higher than Benson and Squidward. Neither of them are that bad. They're just mean because they're stuck in bad jobs with idiot co-workers/employees, and they still have a good side to their personalities. Peter has no reason to treat everyone as mean as he does. I know Family Guy has a lot of mean characters, but what has Cleaveland, Joe, or Mort Goldman done to deserve the way they are treated by Peter?

7 Chris McLean - Total Drama Chris McLean - Total Drama Chris McLean is a fictional character from the Total Drama Island series as the official host who makes the campers perform a series of challenges for immunity ranging from often humiliating to dangerous.

He is a maniac!

Three quarters of the challenges he makes the contestants do aren't even legal.

Watch Season 4 and try not to rage. I should know. I failed.

He has problems.

8 Benson - Regular Show Benson - Regular Show Benson Dunwoody is a main character on Cartoon Network's Regular Show. He is a gumball machine, also known as The Park's manager. As the manager, he is the boss of every park worker (with the possible exception of Pops). He has a short temper and has a tendency of yelling at Mordecai and Rigby every more.

I've always hated him. He threatens to fire Mordecai and Rigby for oh so unforgivable offenses as singing or wanting to bail out of judging pies.

And he has no real excuse either. There are even episodes where he takes a sadistic glee in tormenting them (*cough*Best Burger in the World*cough*) - KalloFox34

He's much meaner than Mr. Krabs. - DaWyteNight


Benson is the best character in the show - money_face

9 Vicky - The Fairly OddParents Vicky - The Fairly OddParents

Top 10 material. - Userguy44

How is she not higher?! She literally tries to kill Timmy every time she babysits him. She is the cartoon version of Misty from Pokemon! Why? They are also really annoying gingers!

How is she anything like Misty? Misty's a nice person, as long as she's not angry. Vicky, on the other hand, is sadistic and sociopathic towards everyone, especially Timmy, for no real reason. - KalloFox34

10 Swiper - Dora the Explorer Swiper - Dora the Explorer Swiper is the main antagonist in Dora the Explorer, appearing in nearly every single episode. He is a sneaky orange fox. As his name implies, Swiper steals or attempts to steal key items that help Dora on her adventures. Clever as he is, Swiper never manages to take Dora completely by surprise; an ominous more.

I think Dora deserves it

Swiper is number one in this list, he is super mean.

For trying to steal Dora's stuff, even though everyone wants Dora to die.

Him vs real him

He is the mentally unstable school teacher of Timmy and is one of the main antagonists in the series.

Looks like a child molester. - Gehenna

He's not mean. His past just really sucks and just wants to unleash his pain on everybody. Just because he wants to uncover the secret of...FAIRY GODPARENTS! Seriously, get him off the list. Replace him with Vicky, who I think deserves #1. - OnyxDash

43 Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy


44 Pretty - Kaeloo

The very second episode in which she appeared had this: Kaeloo had a horse and then Pretty forcefully took it away. Kaeloo somehow found a magic unicorn. Pretty kept whining until she got a unicorn too. Then she shot the normal horse. Then she realized that Kaeloo's unicorn was faster than hers. So she threatened to euthanize her own unicorn.

Almost forced her sister's boyfriend to marry her so she could wear a dress and buy an expensive ring? Check. Shoot a horse and kill it for no apparent reason? Check. Looks down on people for not having as much money as she does? Check. Nearly disowned her own sister for daring to smile when she herself was in a bad mood? Check. Worst mean girl ever.

She's like the stereotypical high school mean girl, but worse because she does things like, for example, forcefully taking away a horse which belonged to Kaeloo.

She's WAY worse than Mr. Cat. At least Mr. Cat has a few redeeming qualities.

45 Kelly - Stoked
46 Raven - Teen Titans

I love this character!

47 Tom - Tom and Jerry Tom - Tom and Jerry Thomas "Tom" Cat is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films.
