Top 10 Most Overrated Animals
The Top Ten
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
Dogs are way cuter than cats.V 14 Comments
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

No one has put a comment here so I will. LIZARDS HAVE SHORT LIFE SPANS - Charmedyeti
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.
Birds are beautiful animals, but most don't belong in captivity. Many are unhappy is capivity. They typically ar fairly mean to humans as well. Leave birds in the wild where they belong!
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.
Most overrated animal in all of history.V 8 Comments
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.
Wolves are overrated because they have been over used in games, looks and other things! Like I'm just sick and tired of wolves. People need to use a different animal than wolves. Who ever says I need to go in hell for this is but hurt over me just saying my opinion. Wolves are over used and many people liked them. Like they are seen everywhere Even in a game like Animal Jam. I think it's time these wolves should take a break from being used OVER WAY TOO MUCH. Ugh I'm just sick of it;
Wolfaboos always say "Wulves R underrated", but as far as I can tell, wolves are probably the most popular and overrated animals nowadays. Everyone thinks they're "mystical" and "brave" or whatever, but they're only as amazing as any other animal. I wish people could just respect ALL animals, not just the "pretty" ones.

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)
Rhinos are cool, they charge at things.
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
You do know that Tigers are almost, or are endangered? Saying stuff like, "I hope they burn alive" is just disrespectful. I think Tigers are fantastic creatures, and don't deserve the bad ratings they get.
People think they can easily win against bears, even the grizzly. But bears can actually crush tigers.
Tigers are stupid animals, I hope they all burn alive themselvesV 4 Comments
How are they overrated they are just well known
I barely hear the word sea horse, like once a month I hear the word sea horse. Underrated animal. - AStumpedHuman
They got the shortest lifespan. When I was little we owned a ton fo them (we're Asian) and most of them died within 1 or 2 weeks after we purchased them
I think everyone makes a fuss about polar bears being endangered. This means they shall not become extinct, as everyone cares about them so much. I am not saying that we should not worry, but we should worry about the lesser, more endangered creatures such as several varieties of insects, for example.
p.s The same goes for pandas, but they are more endangered.
p.p.s Climate change is real.
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[!
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 - OfficialpenV 8 Comments
People just like like them for their strips take them off you basically get a donkey.
Specific monkey please
This is the one non overrated animal on this list - Mono
Don't miss with them
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
Cheetahs are really fast but they are really weak. - MonoV 2 Comments
I think that they are underrated, to be honest. - IcetailofWishClan
Underrated. People consider them as pests but they are really beautiful animals. they are so graceful and pretty - Mono
It may had been the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, but it was hardly the toughest.
Very overrated but they don't compare to crocks though
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
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.

I hate how teachers teach little kids about foxes as though they are the most dangerous animals alive. Whenever I see one it just runs off and I never see it again. - Mono
Foxes are more dangerous than wolves because of the diseases a lot of them carry. I'm glad that kids are taught to steer away from them and be cautious. - BlueberryCatfish
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
Stupid anime and furrys!V 3 Comments
They bite and kill each other and were never really domesticated and every kid wants one just for it to sit in there room for 4 years and die.
Actually, not all hamsters "bite and kill". Most of them are friendly and smart. - WildDogGirl
"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
Not to mention people being brainwashed by King Kohg
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
I actually think they are cute.
Too many people watch them at zoos. All they do is sleep.
People are always like "awww, koalas are the cutest things ever! " when they are one of the dumbest animals in the world, as do nothing but sleep. - Emberflight_of_StormClan
If anything, flamingos are underrated
I love bulldogs! How did they get on the list
Are they a type of dog?
Crap you people have terrible opinions pugs and bulldogs are the only dogs I like
Bulldogs aree very underrated
Take koalas off the list, they are cute and nobody really likes them that much. They are better than pandas
People think they so cute but once they're start attacking yea good luck with that cute thing.
Pandas are by far the worst animals in the galaxy. It was so stupid and overrated I'm sure everybody loves it except for me. I hate it so much that I hate it more than bugs because everybody's like, "AW! IT WAS SO CUTE! " And I heard everyone say, "It was the most endangered animal in the world! " Come on. More than A THOUSAND PANDAS. Panda lovers are just plain stupid. There's a kind of fox less than 600. A kind of one-eye-hammerhead shark with one left. Pink Dolphins less than 100, and dinosaurs EXTINCT. Now you know how bad they are. They are NOT CUTE AT ALL. And last time our Chinese teacher said we should create an essay about animals and needs to do a presentation and give others scores. A person did pandas and I gave her 0%. People are childish enough to call it "giant panda." Really? Look at it's fat shape. You called it giant. I heard ridiculous people say: "Hey! A panda gave birth to a giant panda! " Uh, how do you explain about ...more
Naw, any animal you can use as transportation is pretty cool.
Every little girl is completely obsessed with them and I'm sick of it. They're obsolete in my country anyways.
There's nothing special about them. I don't quite understand horse people
I want to Lenny face a horse their heads are so hot
Screw them, they are very known at this some game called "Animal Jam" With filled out a those dumb dogs walking around with their awful accessories and etc and people wasted about "10 Diamonds"
I'd kill newborn Arctic wolf babies. I'd rip out their bloody baby heads off alive.
Dogs are way smarter than you, they're as equally smart has cats!
How is this about effing dogs DOGS ARE OVERRATED PIECES OF CRAOV 2 Comments
I don't see so many have fans to love them and get offended who hates this animal. I don't think it's that overrated than wolves.
You're lame and overrated
To overrated especially Kangaroo Jack lame.
I mean who's so STUPID to think a dolphin is annoying
To be honest they're just annoying, I mean who's that happy ALL THE TIME?!
Dolphins can often be a little too friendly if you know what I mean...
They're not always friendly. They can be very aggresive - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxXV 4 Comments
I'd kill their newborn babies and shoot them in the nose
Watching a show today. Most venomous snake in the world. Guy says it can kill a man in four minutes. They filmed it attacking rat. Rat ran around for at least five minutes. After being bit. Yeah man in 4, little rodent in 5. It was on Nat geo.V 1 Comment
I'd kill baby crocodiles
Much more overrated than alligators
If anything these guys are underrated. One of the top predators in Africa yet always relegated to a lowly scavenger role in books and movies.
I say that evil hyenas are overrated while good hyenas are underrated, if anything.
I'd kill baby hyenas and rip off their bloody baby heads off alive
The lion king should be ashamed of starving poor hyenas
Kill their newborn babies!
Nah, owls are cool.
Stupid owls, I'd kill their babies
Well, they are not liked animal than cats and etc. Why the hell they need put in this overrated list?
You be surprised that they actually kill other sea creatures and that ink is actually quite dangerous
I hate golden eagles, I'd rip off their bloody baby heads off alive, I'd cut their bloody babies necks and organs in half alive in front of their mothers
Underrated compare to other eagles.
Not the sea monster it was made out to be.
I personally find Snakes a bit underrated, at least in the west. - thelegendaries101
