Top 10 Most Overrated Animals

The Top Ten

1 Dog Dog Domesticated house hold pets that have evolved from wolves . They are sometimes bred with other species of wolves or dogs to create desirable purebreds or a new species of dogs.

Dogs are not smarter than cats and I have biological proof to back me up. Cats can learn many tricks, but they need to gain your loyalty first, while a dog will just go along with whatever you say. That's a little too trusting, isn't it? Most dogs have been bred so much that they have been dumbed down. Now don't even get me started about people saying they are cute. Yes, I love some dogs, but flat-faced Pugs are ugly and monstrosities to nature. Every single dog has been genetically bred, making them against nature by existing. If you like dogs, fine, but I lose it when people say they are more intelligent than cats. The fact that they trust the first person they meet does not make them smart.

Yes. My class is stupid sexist, but they love dogs. They treat them like god. When we did an animal report, almost everyone did a dog! Even after a dog attacked my school, the bad rating of that is up with the stroke, the squirrel, and the lockdown, and kids still love them! They treat cats like fat stupidness! I am SICK of dogs. And the dog attack happened on a kid's birthday. I can see why she doesn't really like dogs, THANK GOD

Yes, they protect people, they're fun, they're loyal, but I've never seen any movies/series/cartoons/etc about animals that doesn't have a dog in it. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs, but some people ignore the fact that they can be very dangerous - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Dogs are loud, they poop everywhere and they lick smell, bark at and attack strangers. They are also REALLY UGLY. Not cute. At least cats are cute sometimes but dogs are just terrible. People also treat dogs like god.

2 Cats Cats The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

Actually, I find them overhated. Sure, there are cat memes and all, but in real life, so many people hate cats. I think the most common reason to strongly hate all these creatures is because they say things like "cats don't love you", or "cats hate you and want to murder your family" and "dogs save people where as cats just poop in a box and hate you and kill babies". First of all, science has proven that cats DO bond with their loving owners, and actually grow very attached. Second, what idiotic superstition made you think they want to kill you? Unless you abuse them (in that case, you should look behind you now and then, and sniff your drink for poison if you have abused cats, because they love revenge), they have no reason to really hate you. Third, I'm happy to say that there have been cases where cats saved their owners' life, and a cat even jumped into a burning building to save her kittens. She got some nasty burns, but she and her kittens ended up safe. Fourth, um, no, cats ...more - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Cats are so cute, but overrated only by people. First came the cringe-worthy warrior cats. Then we got a isn't abuse cat videos (FORCING CATS TO DO SOMETHING THAT COULD KILL THEM?! ) now we have stank Nekos. I miss the old days when cats weren't overrated and all animals were equal

Yes. They are overrated but also underrated. I think I know why but I will not say because people will hate me for it. I like tabbies because I have one but I think the warriors series is one reason why they're overrated - Puppytart

Cats are dumb if you vote for #1 U SUCK AND ARE A LOSR

3 Lions

Don't get me wrong, lions are good animals but I have a serious disliking to The Lion King and all of it's characters. The movie also gave spotted hyenas a bad rap and unacceptable role. And "king of the beasts"? Why not share the title with other animals once in a while? Tigers are physically larger than lions (I think), while foxes do a better job with adaptability. But that doesn't mean that lions are bad. All animals should have equal respect, in my opinion.

Yep so right. In the Lion King, Mufasa was racist against hyenas and didn't care if they starved, or died. He would just kill them. Like in The Lion King, hyenas get more hate than spiders in real life! If we saw a spider we would probably run away from it, but Mufasa or Simba would KILL a hyena that's a millimeter in the Pridelands. This is why I hate lions.

Kind of lame compared to other big cats in my opinion. The male lion just sits around while the females do all the work. I also prefer the markings on other big cats.

Cannot describe how overrated. Honey bagders aren't as pretty but I would want one as my spirit animal

4 Birds

Really!? Some birds are impressive and don't deserve to be on the list. Owls, Eagles, Flamingos, etc are worth seeing at the zoo. The less impressive birds should stay on the list though

This shouldn't be on here, there are thousands of different types of birds out there.

There's a ton of birds that are not talked about much.

5 Tigers

I really don't get all the dislikes. Tigers would never fight bears in the wild because they live in different habitats, and they probably wouldn't willingly fight. I'm just saying that if they fight for survival, the bear would typically win

People think they can easily win against bears, even the grizzly. But bears can actually crush tigers.

They can win against lions but that's just because of their size.

Tigers are stupid animals, I hope they all burn alive themselves

6 Eagle Eagle Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are also one of America's national symbols.

The bald eagle is actually one of the smallest. The turkey WOULD have been better.

Golden eagles are jerks, I'd burn them alive and rip open their babies alive in front of their mothers slowly and painfully if it wasn't illegal

Everyone makes a huge fuss over how this 'amazing' eagle is so 'awesome' because they ate a poor little fox. Bald Eagles are ok, but Golden Eagles are aggressive and eat foxes and even BABY SHEE[!

7 Monkey Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.

Specific monkey please

Don't miss with them

8 Humans Humans Humans are not exactly wild animals, but not domesticated, either. Proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white. Builders of the global civilization.

While we humans have done great things, we're not the greatest things that ever happened. We're not even the most important things that ever happened. If it weren't for plants, micro-organisms, or water, we would be nothing. Plus, it is kinda funny that several people don't think that we're animals, but we are. We just have big brains and opposable thumbs, and while we done great things in the world, we done a lot of bad things too. Let's hope our only 2 real benefits don't kill us.

I forgot about humans! Why do we think we are superior when we just ruin the planet. Humans think they aren't animals but they really are no more worth here than a squirrel.

The only one species able to destroy, exterminate any other species, including himself. No other species is such blockhead. The earth doesn't need this stupid animal. 1) Humans, 2) Mosquito.

This should be number one. not cats - Officialpen

9 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

I find it odd it's all the way at #10. If you have a decent amount of friends, you must have one that is a wannabe wolf or a wannabe loner. Well guess what, lone wolves usually die so I don't understand what the hype is about. And alpha wolves usually help the pack, not kill intruders. Wolves aren't the strongest animals in the world, I could name 3 carnivores off the top of my head that could kill a wolf with ease. Elephants, tigers, lions. I don't see anyone giving them as much attention, but wolves are actually not as cool or OP as you think. If you're the alpha, you're basically the father of the entire pack, you're not some cool wolf with a scar on his left eye that somehow doesn't blind him. And how they represent the other wolves as citizens, if you're not fit; you will be either kicked out the pack or killed trying to stay. There aren't any 'elder' wolves, because those are usually sacrificed to eat if there isn't enough food. Don't start all the "the pack treat each ...more

Wolves take this by a long shot. They are terribly overrated animals. First off wolves are very average in terms of carnivore intelligence. Second, gray wolf packs are not happy little families like wolfaboos would lead you to believe, in a wolf pack you are either respected or treated like dirt. Take the omega for example. The omega wolf is the punching bag of the wolf pack and they often die of malnutrition and sometimes the other wolves gang up and kill the omegas for giggles. Third, wolves are not gods of the animal kingdom. One wolf cannot kill one bear or puma ( Have you seen the video of the cougar who killed a lone wolf? ) One wolf would get ripped to shreds by a bear, crocodile, tiger, or lion.

With out wolves there would be none of the domesticated dogs we have today and wolves have more stamina then any big cat there powerful and can run over 30 miles per hour and are extremely intelligent there's a good reason why there so popular - donovanthorn

They ALL need to die, burn in hell, get skinned alive, gutted, and have their fur sold. The worst of the worst need to happen to them!

10 Lizard Lizard Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 6,000 species, ranging across all continents except Antarctica, as well as most oceanic island chains.

The Contenders

11 Alligator Alligator

Very overrated but they don't compare to crocks though

12 Sharks Sharks Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

Don't you know people kill more sharks than sharks killing people

A shark isn't an animal retard, it's a fish. Nice try though. - Jacob12d

They are mindless eating machines. Enough said

Orcas Eat Thoose
(They are able to exploit the sharks hidden weakness tonic immobility)

13 Cheetahs Cheetahs The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

People think that just because they are fast, they can beat a wolf but cheetahs will actually lose to most other fighters

Did you know that they run in short bursts of speed and need to rest for 15 to twenty minutes after each run.

I'd kill baby cheetahs slowly and painfully in front of their crying mothers, I'd rip open their guts and rip off their heads alive, I'd cut their bloody ripped apart bloody baby little ribs out alive in front of their crying mothers who have their eyelids ripped off

How about you go to jail for animal cruelty thanks.

14 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

People love watching them in zoos but all they do is wade underwater.

The Lion Guard is to blame. Hippos are one of, if not, the most dangerous land animal. Yet, uneducated people think they're "nice" animals because of Beshte.

I love hippos

15 Tyrannosaurus Tyrannosaurus Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur.

Tyrannosaurus is not as strong of a dinosaur as people think. They get too much credit in the first place

It was still tougher than Spinosaurus, who's jaws weren't suited for attacking other large dinosaurs.

There are much better and more unique dinosaurs out there, plus it was actually a scavenger.

Every thing with dinosaurs has this.

16 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species ...read more.

People are using Foxes way to much, it's just annoying!

Come on every furry uses them they are hella ovrated and should be number 1

Foxes aren't overrated everyone in my school hates all species of cats wolves and foxes but they effing love dogs

Foxes are annoying jerks, I'd rip out their bloody organs alive in front of their mothers who have their eyelids peeled off, motherfudgers. I'd rip apart their babies heads off alive an cut their mothers in half. Female dogs

17 Rabbits

Overused in popular culture and often seen as cute and cuddly when they can be quite vicious.

I had actually gotten two rabbits, and they used to bite me everywhere like rabid beasts, and I usually walked out of their pen with bloody fingers and ankles, anywhere they could reach. - Hurp_Durp_Slurp

18 Deer Deer Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.

I think that they are underrated, to be honest. - IcetailofWishClan

19 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.

It may had been the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, but it was hardly the toughest.

20 Gorillas Gorillas Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Africa.

"They can only lift 2000 pounds" remind again when you lift anywhere near 1,000 pounds. Please and thanks - MLGPoossySlayer6969

People think they lift up to 6000 pounds but that's not true they can only lift 2000 pounds

Remember hurambe!

Not to mention people being brainwashed by King Kohg
