Meanest Cartoon Characters of All Time

The Top Ten

1 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.

It's SpongeBob and Patrick who ruin his life. He never got to pursue music and now is working at the Krusty Krab. He never gets a day to himself. I would be mean and Grumpy too.

A mean spirited individual who has a bit of superiority complex about him, he's also a bit of a slacker at work, although you have to feel a bit sorry for him, as sponge Bob & his pals always seem to get one over on him, each & every time.

He's miserable because of Spongebob. It was once shown once that Squidward was the happiest guy in Bikini Bottom until Spongebob took over his life. - Spicygarlic

He's not the meanest but he looks like he's mean but he's not, he just has anger issues which is fine to have

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.

Mr. Krabs would freak if he ever went broke.

He is so greedy and fired SpongeBob just to save a nickel.

He is so selfish he opened the krusty krab for 24 hours and overworked his employees just to get money

This dude wants more money than Roblox. - Gabo147

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

Burn in hell

4 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

5 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.

Poor Mordecai and Rigby, always scolded by this angry gumball machine

Actually, in a FEW episodes he was likable, This is my Jam, The Regular Show finale 2 parter, from 1 to 10 in not irritating, I would say 4.


6 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.

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.

7 Caillou - Caillou Caillou - Caillou

Accuracy, it never misses.

Why did I say that? Because caillou is about as close to a completely accurate representation of four year olds everywhere. Whiny, snobby, selfish, and down right bossy. I have a nephew who's the same way, and I can tell you people, he's like a light skinned version of Caillou! I use to love this show as a kid, but when I looked back at all my favourite shows growing up, this had to've been the worst one.

So spoiled, so mean...

He’s so mean. Pinched a Newborn! His parents are so dumb. They didn’t punish him.

8 Nelson Muntz - The Simpsons Nelson Muntz - The Simpsons Nelson Mandela Muntz is a fictional character and the lead school bully from the animated TV series The Simpsons.

He's a mean Bully.

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.

How dare you!

19 Mr. Cat - Kaeloo

He always bullies poor Quack Quack for dumb reasons like relieving his own stress and jealousy that Kaeloo likes him more.

It's a miracle that Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack still see him as a friend. - DoubleDuckAvenger

He's quite mean, but entertaining and fun to watch.

He once compared sharing stuff with other kids to communism.

23 Denzel Crocker - Fairly Odd Parents Denzel Crocker - Fairly Odd Parents Denzel Quincy Crocker is a fictional character from the American animated series The Fairly OddParents created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. He is the mentally unstable school teacher of Timmy and is one of the main antagonists in the series.

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

I think he's changed a lot in the newer episodes, but I still like his humour.

Yeah he is mean to Timmy. - cosmo

Looks like a child molester. - Gehenna

24 Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa Pizza Steve - Uncle Grandpa

Dora I suppose she would annoy anyone over the age of 5. Things that can be perfectly seen well duh everyone who posts on here is obviously not a toddler.

I said no to go on a adventure and she said alright let's go she super bad at Spanish

I think dora should be at number 1

27 Vicky - The Fairly OddParents Vicky - The Fairly OddParents Vicky is one of the two main antagonists of Nickelodeon's The Fairly OddParents. She is one of Timmy's most personal enemies and his remorseless, arrogant, and cruel babysitter.

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!

Misty is at least not evil, and do actually like Ash and Brock, even if she can be fierce at times. But she cannot be compared to Vicky, who's actually evil. - Svampbob164

28 Stewie - Family Guy

He tries to kill Lois, but it is entertaining at least.

29 Raven - Teen Titans

I love this character!

30 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.

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.

31 Edward Bighead - Rocko's Moern Life
32 Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy Kevin - Ed, Edd N Eddy
33 Andross - Star Fox
34 Eva - Total Drama

I actually like her! She was portrayed as the stereotypical "jock," but that just made the moments when she experienced happiness, guilt, and empathy even more rare and genuine! - Flowersocks2137

Just because someone wants her on this list.

35 Slappy Squirrel - Animaniacs Slappy Squirrel - Animaniacs

She ruins people's life.

36 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.
37 Blue Meanies - The Beatles “Yellow Submarine” film

They were supposed to be mean! But thank goodness the Beatles redeemed them at the end!

38 Sissi - Code Lyoko

She's such a big pain in the butt

Where is helga patacki

39 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.

Be mean again and you'll regret it Tom

I loved Tom! - Flowersocks2137

40 Robin - Teen Titans Go Robin - Teen Titans Go

This horrid husk of a character should be number one because he's a insane, evil sociopath who kills and harms for glory and himself and is mean to his friends. He also is a stalker and beats up anyone maniacally with his staff and hires hunters to kill his friends once.

41 Nina Harper - Braceface
42 Haruhi Suzumiya - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya is the title character and female protagonist of the Haruhi Suzumiya series created by Nagaru Tanigawa.
43 Rick Sanchez - Rick and Morty Rick Sanchez - Rick and Morty Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

Rick may be a genius, but he's a very grouchy scientist.

44 Pretty - Kaeloo

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.

Why on Earth is Mr. Cat higher than Pretty?

45 Peppa Pig - Peppa Pig Peppa Pig - Peppa Pig

She's the best character ever - PeppaPig

46 Ron - 6teen
47 Wakko Warner - Animaniacs Wakko Warner - Animaniacs

I hate the show and this character is such a horrible miserable kinky little brat.

48 Gwen Tennyson - Ben 10 Gwen Tennyson - Ben 10 Gwendolyn "Gwen" Tennyson is a deuteragonist of the Ben 10 franchise. She is the human/anodite hybrid Plumber, the paternal first-cousin of Ben Tennyson, and (along with Kevin Levin) a frontline member of his team.

The stereotypical grumpy teenager.

I hate Ben 10 anyway!

49 Invader Zim - Invader Zim Invader Zim - Invader Zim

He's a total freak and sounds like a girl.

I think just about all of the Irkens are mean characters. At least it's fun to watch his insane antics that involve taking over the world.

50 Dot Warner - Animaniacs
