The Top Ten

1 Undertale - Indie RPGs Undertale - Indie RPGs

My advice for it: Do the Pacifist and Genocide runs, then never bother with it again unless you're feeling a sudden nostalgic need to play it again (as I occasionally do)

To be honest, Pacifist is really the only run type that actually does live up to even a QUARTER of the game's hype - xandermartin98

Thanos should poo and pee and fart on Sans.

2 The Ren & Stimpy Show - Gross-Out Cartoons The Ren & Stimpy Show - Gross-Out Cartoons The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

...What about Itchy and Scratchy cartoons? - RustyNail

(cough, to the point where it even had its GOD-awful Adult Party Cartoon spinoff get a solid B from Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker while golden-age Rocko's Modern Life, as in literally the ENTIRE franchise, got a D from him despite objectively being a monumentally better show to say the LEAST, cough) - xandermartin98

3 Avengers: Infinity War - Supervillain Movies

It's a GOOD-tier Marvel film, yes (ignoring how LUDICROUSLY overhyped it is),

but after watching Spider-Man 2 and Into The Spider-Verse, I can pretty safely say that it is FAR from god-tier (well, apart from Thanos himself being quite possibly THE single greatest villain to ever appear in a superhero movie besides the Dark Knight Joker, that is)
Simply put, this film is the living definition of why "bigger" doesn't always mean "better" - xandermartin98

4 Filthy Frank - Youtubers that are deconstructive satires of 4-Chan and the Alt-Right Filthy Frank - Youtubers that are deconstructive satires of 4-Chan and the Alt-Right

I know it sounds weird to call Pink Season an "overrated" album, but still - xandermartin98

5 The Dark Knight - Superhero Movies

The Dark Knight is the best you mud cricket

Great movie but an extremely inaccurate portrayal of Batman himself, as well as overly reliant on its villains and honestly not even one-tenth as smart and philosophical as it's made out to be
(cough, it also REALLY isn't the darkest superhero movie in retrospect, wheeze)
[hell, in some ways, Infinity War is actually darker] - xandermartin98

6 Radiohead - Experimental/Electronic Alternative Rock Bands Radiohead - Experimental/Electronic Alternative Rock Bands Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Pablo Honey was just okay, The Bends was good but largely forgettable, OK Computer is hands-down one of THE greatest albums of all time, Kid A is hands-down one of THE most atmospheric albums of all time...and then after that, I honestly feel that basically all of their later albums more or less down the path set by The Bends, with all of the weakest aspects of OK Computer also being mixed in (which was also a major problem with Kid A itself, granted, but STILL)

Also, it has not only a circlejerk sub-reddit but also a SQUARE-JERK sub-reddit - xandermartin98

7 Black Panther 2018 - Blaxploitation Movies

Although it has some of the coolness of blaxploitation and obviously a mostly black cast, this is in no way a blaxploitation movie. Blaxploitation was a mostly 70s movement, with a little belated spillover into the 80s. It was a very specific cultural phenomenon and mostly involving white directors and producers, and eventually more African-American filmmakers emerged to tell their own stories. BP is just a Marvel movie. - truckturner

I disagree, this is worshipped as a Marvel movie that happens to have black superheroes, not a blaxploitation movie, your thinking Shaft-that is the movie worship of the blaxploitation films - germshep24

Once again, good but far-from-great Marvel movie that gets its absolutely RIDICULOUS praise mainly for being culturally influential (rather undeservedly, might I add, when considering the fact that the way that it portrayed Africa was actually kind of extremely racist in its own right if you think about it) rather than actually being good (honestly, it was just okay even at its best, as in the scenes where T'Challa got his superpowers taken away from him and was forced to prove his real strength) - xandermartin98

Stop making this about race. It's just a movie with an all black cast. It's not racist. Besides, Stan Lee, a white man created it anyway. - RobertWisdom

Not a Blaxploitation film. Those are from the 70s. LOL! - RobertWisdom

8 Super Metroid - Pre-Hollow-Knight Metroidvania Games

Without certain unbelievably top-notch ROM hacks that it just so happens to have (Z-Factor, Phazon, Eris, Hyper Metroid, Super Zero Mission, Redesign for the most part, et cetera) to back it up, this game honestly hasn't really aged all that impressively in retrospect, even without exploiting some of its more notoriously game-breaking tricks like single-wall-jumping and X-Ray-Visor Plasma-Charge Shot magnifying
Also, the soundtrack for it seems to favor Brinstar and Maridia WAY too heavily; just saying - xandermartin98

9 Eminem - Rappers Eminem - Rappers Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

Not even the only good white rapper; I rest my case (still amazing though) - xandermartin98

10 Dimash Kudaibergen - Singers with a high vocal range

10 already? Christ almighty this website - TheYoshiPyro64

He is so great.

Well, you're one of the people in the fanbase infamously worshipping him as "The God of His Genre", so... - TheYoshiPyro64

The Contenders

11 Michael Myers - Slasher Character

Jason is more popular and Freddy is by far more popular and worshipped than both. - RobertWisdom

I would say Jason, he is by far the most popular slasher - germshep24

I was thinking Freddy, but he isn't popular for slashing people up but for screwing with people, think about his iconic deaths they weren't from slashing a body or slamming a body against a tree their more supernatural, unlike the deaths you get from Michael or Jason - germshep24

12 I Hate Everything - Youtubers I Hate Everything - Youtubers

Honestly, this guy probably lives up to these claims for the most part,

but the entire concept behind his channel is just SO cliched and unimaginative
(not to mention some of the inexcusably stupid and ignorant things that he's said in some of his earlier videos, like the classic "remember when music was good BACK IN MY DAY? " for instance) - xandermartin98

13 Rocko's Modern Life - Cartoon Sitcoms

Honestly though, this show actually comes pretty close to living up to its praise (at least in my personal opinion) - xandermartin98

Ever wondered what the insides of Paula Hutchison’s and Virginia Wolfe’s brains look like? My fanfics for the show will be VERY proud to tell you - xandermartin98

14 Avatar: The Last Airbender - Western Anime
15 PewDiePie - Let's Players
16 Steven Universe - Cartoon Network Shows

The Powerpuff Girls (the 1998 version) and Courage the Cowardly Dog are a billion times better than that overrated piece of junk. - PerfectImpulseX

17 Nostalgia Critic - Movie Reviewers

Meh...at the point that NC's at, Ralph The Movie Maker absolutely wipes the floor with him - xandermartin98

18 Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Magical Girl Anime
