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.

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.

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

Not sure who has the worst hatedom; Krystal (Star Fox), Bowser Jr. (Mario), Pikachu (Pokemon) or Karel (Fire Emblem)? Either way, I cannot stand the haters of any of those characters.

2 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 should be number 1

3 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

Bowser junior is cool

Not a Koopaling? So? In my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

People hate Bowser Jr. simply because he's not the Koopalings, yet that doesn't stop the Koopalings from making an appearance in the later games since New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Then there's the fact that the Koopalings aren't Bowser's children anymore, but rather his cronies instead, with Jr. being his only son. But that's no excuse to hate on Bowser Jr.

4 Toon Link

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

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

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.

How is Pikachu the overrated rat more overhated than Charizard the hate collector?

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 is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been more.

Absolutely! She doesn't deserve any hate! She's hated for two reasons.

1. She's ugly and annoying.

2. She was a brat in the T.V. show.

DID YOU PLAY PAPER JAM AND RIO 2016? She's awesome in both of those! - DCfnaf

9 King Dedede King Dedede King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.
10 Princess Zelda Princess Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

The Contenders

11 Samus Aran Samus Aran Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

That's only because the DeviantART fangirls ran out of porn ideas. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

12 Toad Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. 2 for the USA. Since then he has been a reoccurring character in the more.

I voted for this because somehow I don't think people understand what this list is really about...

He's annoying, but I wouldn't understand if he wasn't in the games


13 Ridley Ridley
14 Mario Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

Hogs all the spotlight. - Catacorn

Those drated Luigi Fans are like"BUTT STOOPID MEHRIO Is MUNTAL! ".Look, its JUST A THEORY, A GAME THEORY! There is a big difference in fact and theory! People, Wake up!

P. S. Sorry for my screaming.


15 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . 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 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

After Mario Kart Wii came out which was Rosalina's first playable appearance Mercedes Rose who portrayed Rosalina was replaced by a new actor in the Wii U games Mario Party 10, Mario Kart 8, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash and even the game that came out on the Nintendo 3DS last year Mario Party Star Rush. And that's how she got the old lady voice. Don't believe me? Go buy the four games and play them. They'll prove it to you.

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.

"Old Lady voice"? Can you explain to me how she has an "Old Lady voice"? - ParkerFang

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

The most overhated character in the mario franchise... - PlayStationSolar

18 Princess Daisy (Mario) Princess Daisy (Mario) Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

You have a point

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.

19 Luma Luma

Who hates Luma? - DaisyandRosalina

20 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.

He's just another NPC in the Zelda series. Not sure where the hate come from.
