Top Ten Most Over-Hated Nintendo Characters of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Krystal

As much as the furry fandom is bad, Krystal also suffers from a horrible hatedom as well. Some blame her for ruining the Star Fox series when really, she didn't appear in Star Fox 64 and it's remake, as well as the SNES original, and she is not the worst fictional character in the world (she has flaws but still can be improved if given the right characterization or such). Krystal has been portrayed worse in the furry fandom than in the Star Fox games, as there is still hope left, if anything.

You know... I never really considered adding her to this list because I don't know much about Star Fox. however, after reading these comments and Browsing through the Internet myself, I'm glad that she's first. She definitely deserves either first or second behind bowser junior. - HeavyDonkeyKong

If you look up Krystal Smashified on YouTube (either the commentary or instrumental version, they both have it), there's a comment by D4rk Luminox that calls out the Krystal haters on their B.S. excuses. It's way too big to copy and paste here, but it's worth your time.

To say the hatebase for Krystal is ridiculous is an understatement. During the development of Super Smash Bros 4, if you said you supported her as a playable character, the hatebase would swarm and bully you about it. And the reasons they're against her are the definition of straw grasping...

-Fox clone (Sakurai himself said that, if she was playable, she'd have an original moveset.)
-Palutena clone (Apparently, we can have a plethora of sword users, but god forbid we have two staff wielders. Aside from the fact that their weapons are different, it makes no sense for Krystal to attack with angelic wings and pillars of light.)
-She never used her staff (Rosalina didn’t attack with Luma’s. Zelda never used the goddesses’ magic. Ness never used PK Fire, Thunder, or Magnet. The Villager never wore punching gloves. Ice Climbers never shot ice out of their hands, etc.)
-Only furries want her (very hypocritical, considering the haters supported Wolf, King K. Rool, Dixie ...more

2 Bowser Junior

I've seen two Top Ten Hated Video Game Characters list with Bowser Jr in them. Both of them describe Bowser Jr as an annoying brat. I can see why people don't like him as a character in general, but as a VILLAIN I don't know why. Bowser Jr doesn't have some vengeance or hatred for Mario, he tries to defeat him to please his father. That's why I really like him as a character/villain. Also, I've never found him annoying. - DCfnaf

He didn't replace the Koopalings. They still appear in gmaes. The Koopalings are no longer Bowser's Children? Not Junior's Fault! In my opinion of course! In my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in more.

I don't really have an opinion on peach but I liked how Nintendo made super princess peach the only Mario game to have an enemy diary which is cool and also super princess peach was a really good game other than it being super hard to find and it being super overhated

Good at least other people are how terrible she is. A complete moron that let's a mongoloid turtle steal her away. If only she did what any royal would do and upgrade her bodyguards. It's like she likes being kidnapped.

I love Peach, why do people hate her for being kidnapped all the time? You should hate Bowser because it's his fault for kidnapping her, she can't help it. - PrincessKiana

She deserves all the hate she gets

4 Toon Link

Why is Toon Link number 3 on this list!?!? Are you kidding me!?

Why are so many good Nintendo characters hated? I have no problem with Toon Link. I actually think its pretty interesting to play as a diffrent kind of Link. - nintendofan126

Thelegend Of Zelda: The Win Waker has an art style that gets a lot of hate! It thought that it was unique! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

I think that Pikachu haters are obnoxious. It is still a good Pokemon despite that you see it everywhere. (especially when you evolve it into Raichu)

Overhated? More like overrated! - RiverClanRocks

They hate him because he's the most well known Pokemon, even though he isn't the strongest and think he's overrated.

Quoting river clan rocks overhated more like overrated yes that is very true most people do not know any other than Pokemon than pikachu and I don't mind pikachu I like raichu and I absoluteley hate pichu

6 Lana (Hyrule Warriors)

Let's hate a character because of their hair color and being an original character! Oh wait... - DCfnaf

7 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Charizard is like Call of Duty. It was once overrated, yet it has so many haters now that it can't be called that anymore. - Garythesnail

I like Charizard but I prefer Blastoise. I don't think it's overrated, though. It is loved by many, yes, but still not overrated.

Again, not overhated, overrated. - RiverClanRocks

I like him and he is super overrated and I've never heard anyone say they hate him well actually I've never heard anyone say he is not their faviroue Pokemon other than pikachu

She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 .

True in fact the major of hatred is based on her old lady voice. Believe me I happen to be one of those people. Most times I feel like I'm going to vomit just by listening to that old lady voice alone.

Rosalina used to be super popular now she's geting a lot of hate: Peach and Daisy fans and even Waluigi fans! - DaisyandRosalina

18 Tingle

Yes, he is hated in the west, but that doesn't mean he is the absolutely most offensive and unacceptable fictional character in the entire planet (that goes to Shenzi, Banzai and Ed from The Lion King). People hate Tingle for various reasons, such as because of his looks or for being a rupee hog (if you read a game walkthrough you'll be fine). It's better to accept Tingle as just another addition in the Zelda games like you do with all the other characters rather than complain. If you don't like then don't look. Heck, he's not even that reoccurring as much as he used to be as the developers are aware of the west's dislike for him, and that a newer character such as Midna or Ghirahim may take over the position of being a reoccurring character despite the former being an ally and the latter being an enemy, so there is no need to worry about. Seriously, Tingle isn't something to be freaked out over.

20 Princess Daisy (Mario)

Everyone is free to choose, you can like or hate a character, it's your opinion but Daisy haters are getting this too serious: they attack every Daisy fan and some of those want to KILL Daisy fans but why they hate Daisy? Mainly because "Hi I'm Daisy"... are you kidding? The Hi I'm Daisy is dead, just forget it, everyone can. Another reason? "Daisy is a Peach clonee! " No, Daisy and Peach aren't the same person and this isn't an opinion this is a FACT, this isn't Smash where different characters with the same moveset are clones, here different characters are different characters. And finally "Daisy vs Rosalina"... this wasn't true, stop it. That's why Daisy is over-hated.
Runner ups: Peach, Mario, Rosalina, Zelda, Krystal, Ice climbers.
