The Contenders

11 Harry Potter - Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.
12 Pennywise - It It (sometimes capitalized as IT), more commonly known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of the novel, its 2017 film adaptation and the 1990 TV adaptation. It was portrayed to be a shapeshifting and malevolent entity millions (possibly billions) of years old, and with no more.

Not so much interesting as. Woah!

13 Vito Corleone - The Godfather Vito Andolini Corleone is a fictional character in Mario Puzo's novel The Godfather and in Francis Ford Coppola's film series based on the novel, where he was portrayed by Marlon Brando in The Godfather and, as a young man, by Robert De Niro in The Godfather Part II.
14 Rey - Star Wars Rey is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by British actress Daisy Ridley. First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's more.
15 Scar - The Lion King Scar is the main antagonist of Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He was the second son of Ahadi and Uru — who were, at one time, King and Queen of the Pride Lands — the younger brother of Mufasa, and the uncle of Simba.

Many people don't know about his backstory because it wasn't revealed in a movie, it was revealed in a book published after the movie, not many people have heard of the book, it is called "A Tale of Two Brothers". One hint I'll give you, his name is Taka and then it was changed to Scar after he got the scar, the rest of the story, find it on the internet, it's very interesting and worthy of this list. (Just search up "a tale of two brothers lion king" and you'll find it, you don't have to buy the book, you can just read the story on wiki.) - PeeledBanana

He sucks, though. So do the rest of the TLK cast.
