8 Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear - Toy Story 3 Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear - Toy Story 3

9 Harry Potter - Harry Potter 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.
10 Scar - The Lion King Scar - The Lion King Scar is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 32nd animated feature film The Lion King.

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.
