Most Overrated Cartoon Characters

Some Cartoon Characters are good, others suck yet they're really popular.

The Top Ten

1 Peridot (Steven Universe) Peridot is from the show Steven Universe created by Rebecca Sugar. The show airs on Cartoon Network and has grown in popularity over the years. The character Peridot is an alien gem from a planet called Homeworld, Peridot is introduced in the episode "Marble Madness," when Steven and the Crystal Gems more.

The whole show is ruined because of her she is super annoying and is considered one of the best characters

Although I love her but she's pretty much just a rip-off of Zim!

I love Peridot to be honest

She is my favourite character from SU, but she is overrated. - Lunala

2 Peter Griffin Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Homer Simpson clone but is not funny and is a terrible Father!

Peter's more overhated than overrated. He's my favorite character, but needs better complex storylines to rebuild his character development. - ShadowHawk18

I never found him to be funny, but I respect others opinions - Spongehouse

Worse than Homer, and I mean the Homer of recent seasons

3 Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls) Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He more.

The only reason I hate him is because Gravity Falls fans think he's the strongest character ever. - Flamer310

I've lost track of how many times I heard this name pop up right in my face! IT'S LITERALLY THE ILLUMINATI EXPOSED! I don't even watch Gravity Falls.

Lame villain

Bills actually a great charter

4 Tina Belcher (Bob's Burgers)

While not the worst character on the show, she's definitely overrated. I mean, people are calling her a feminist icon. Really? All she does is whine about boys. I hate how she always has to be the hero lately, she acts like a whiny brat when she doesn't get what she wants from her parents, and a lot of episodes have to reach for puns to be named after her. - courtney1

She's SO grating lately. She was never the best character on the show, but then the show started overusing her, which made her more annoying.It was a good idea from a marketing perspective, since she has incredible fan reception for some reason, but I just don't like it.

About 2/3 or more of the episodes are about her now. Hmm, five Belchers, one little brat getting two-thirds of the attention...

What a selfish, spoiled brat! She deserves a swift backhand across the mouth!

5 Steven Universe

Yes. This whole show is overrated. - take

He should be AT LEAST in the top ten - Spongehouse

6 Louise Belcher (Bob's Burgers)

She should totally be on here. She is the most overrated character on the show. Everyone loves her, even though she is annoying. She gets away with everything, Bob bends over backwards for her, and her antics are never funny. This is an unpopular opinion, I know, but she just drives me crazy. - courtney1

She should be #1. Can't imagine a more overrated character.

What a brat. She is NOT funny or cute, people! She's an obnoxious little twerp. - adds432

7 Randy Marsh

Is he really that overrated? - Spongehouse

Not really overrated if you ask me.

8 SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

SpongeBob is a whiny brat who cries about the littlest things like ripping his favorite pants, breaking his spatula. GROW UP SPONGEBOB

I loved him in seasons 1-3, but with all these crap episodes now, he is WAY to overrated!

Why does he have to always be #1 on characters who beat up Santa, etc.

Dear God, Rocko was so much better...

9 Flippy

What is up with the Flippy love? He's just a cartoon character for crying out loud!

Psychotic girls saying that they are a psycho beards wives

Most overrated character in all of Happy Tree Friends with Flaky coming in close second.

True - RedPanda5

10 Homer Simpson Homer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

Homer Simpson Should By Number 1

Should be #1. He's never funny and he's ugly and disgusting.

Homer Simpson(And Other Cartoon Character in General) is Not My Favorite

Homer Simpson Should Be Number 1

The Newcomers

? Courtney (Total Drama Action)

One of the most obnoxious characters on total drama,She is so mean to Beth and Lindsay,some of my favs.

The Contenders

11 Beemo (Adventure Time)

Sucks just like the show...

Hot Topic is the one to blame for this one. Just like their Gir and Jack Skellington merchandise, the only way people will recognize AT is by BMO, and not the main characters Finn and Jake.

But in the fandom, BMO is underrated. *cough*FLAMEPRINCESS*cough*FIONNAANDCAKE*cough* - PhoebeThunderman

12 Kuki Sanban (Codename: Kids Next Door)

She is very obnoxious and flat-out useless. All she ever does is cry and mess things up. Her cutesy act and voice are grating. People only love her because Numbuh 4 has a crush on her and it develops him as a character. She does not shine on her own at all. - knd234

God, I could've really loved this show without her in it.

13 Pearl (Steven Universe) Pearl is a fictional character from the 2013 animated series Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar. She is a "Gem", a fictional alien being that exists as a magical gemstone projecting a holographic body. more.


14 Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty) Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

I love when people try to act nihilistic and claim that they are highly intelligent when worshipping this cool old dude like a god. - ONEPUUUUNCH

I love Rick, but he's way too overrated on martyr levels of worship. - ShadowHawk18

15 GIR (Invader Zim)

Yeah, turns out there is a whole religion. I'm not being sarcastic, I found people in the street worshipping a poster of GIR.

This little robot has been given all the credit for the entire show, and maybe the Pokémon franchise is next. Honestly, GIR is extremely annoying, but everyone, I mean everyone, say GIR is 'the best thing to happen to this world', which is very irrelevant. GIR doesn't have ANY haters execpt for me, and people say he is the main character. What on Earth, people? The show is called Invader ZIM, so you should know who the main character is. People actually WORSHIP GIR and have forgotten who died for our sins in the first place. I have actually seen steam locomotives that are more powerful and superior, such as the Tom Thumb. Overall, GIR recives TOO MUCH LOVE AND IT NEEDS TO STOP.

I think GIR is important. I love GIR. He's awesome. But I think the merchandise REALLY needed to cut back on GIR. Sure, he's a cute little robot, of course he's gonna have fans, but they were honestly forgetting the point of the show. ZIM got almost no merchandise at all and neither did Dib. GIR took the spotlight, GIR took the fame. And while he is a good character and somewhat of an icon, I think we'd also like to see the other characters, not just GIR.

Seriously... I love Gir but I prefer the characters with legitimate development thank you (COUGH Dib COUGH)

16 Eric Cartman Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

Like how he blames people, especially Kyle, for things without giving ANY proof whatsoever, and the fanboys go believing him anyway!

In the SP fandom, evil & mischief get the attention, but justice & sense are underrated. Why?

Lol ilike cartman sometimes but he's EXTREMELY overrated. his fanboys literally worship him like he's god

17 Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

There is one reason she is overrated:Dora is the source for ALL OF THE HATE. It is a kid's show that entertains the minds of young children, not something to critisize for attention.


Isn't overrated, a bunch of people hate her - RedPanda5

The worst cartoon forever

18 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.

Pikachu is overrated. He's been mascot for almost 2 decades. It's annoying

Do I even need to say why?

Yes. Explain why the annoying tiny little mouse is really overrated.

Pika-pika-pika SO ANNOYING, yes, he's overrated.

I like him but I don't think he is really cute anymore,he acts silly in purpose so everyone can think he is cute

19 Invader Zim

Stay in your seat, folks; the unexpected entires are coming. Now, we all know Zim is an adorable little midget who attempts to kill us all with an iron fist. But the problem is that people in real life actually BOW DOWN to him literally, like he is an evil dictator overlord. When Zim says," BOW DOWN TO ZIIM! " don't listen because he is a cartoon character! I think is he an awesome character, and much better than GIR in a way, but, just don't worship him like total nuts.

I've never seen anyone "worship" ZIM except as a joke. I don't think anyone would actually want to bow down to him. He's not even popular! Dib and GIR are way more popular than he is.

I actually like Zim more than GIR. Zim never did anything to deserve a spot on this list!

Why is Tina so high on the list? I love Tina. Smart, Strong, Sensual.

20 Marge Simpson Marjorie Jacqueline "Marge" Simpson is a fictional character in the American animated sitcom The Simpsons and part of the eponymous family.
21 Luna Loud Luna Loud is the 3rd oldest sister, Luna's life forever changed following her first concert which started her passion and dream of being a rock star, Luna's personality can best be described as wild, caring and the loudest of the Louds like Leni she's very caring and enjoys being around the company more.

Worst character on this list, the only reason people worship this character is because she's bisexual and because they like to jerk off to her

Her and Leni are very overrated in the Loud House Fandom, despise I like Leni - RedPanda5

22 Fluttershy Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010-2019 animated TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is a kind pegasus and is very timid and shy. She takes care of the animals. She represents the element of kindness

She is Mary Sue on this show. My personal opinion about Mary Sue characters is that they are too perfect. I think characters must be a little more evil. Nobody is not perfect on this world

Shes way more over rated than pinkie pie...

A mary sue is a character that has no flaws.

I find MLP:FiM as a whole overrated, but Fluttershy takes the cake. - NoodleRidley

23 Star Butterfly

Star is good

24 Derpy Hooves Derpy Hooves is a female Pegasus from the 2010s kids show My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. She is described as dumb and clumsy. Her occupation is a delivery mare.

Definitely the most overrated thing about mlp.

*derp* - Neonco31

25 Batman

He's the most overrated cartoon character, because dummies think he's a believable character.

So annoying. Too many fanboys

Oh come on... HE'S BATMAN - Garoto_Oceano

26 Fionna the Human

I hate this ripoff she's no where near as good as Finn the Human.


27 Billy (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)
28 Ash (Pokemon) Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

He is overrated beyond belief. As of the current state of the show, he has become idiotic, abusive, and terrorising towards his mons and the people he travel with. He needs to catch a deadly disease and then get locked into an asylum. By far the worst and most unlikable main character in anything ever, period. - PageEmperor

29 Kyle Broflovski Kyle Broflovski is a main character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by and loosely based on co-creator Matt Stone.
30 Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus pony from the 2010 kid's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty and is one of the 6 main characters on the show. more.

Ugh, extremely Overrated, she is so mean and this 's pranks are funny when they are offensive.

So overrated, she is not even cool, I can name 100 characters stronger and cooler than Rainbow Dash.

She should be number 1, most overrated.

Overrated, just because she's a tomboy people like her

31 Bugs Bunny (The Looney Tunes Show) Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, created by the staff of Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros.) He is one of the most famous cartoon characters, and he is in the show Looney Tunes. His famous quote is "What's up doc?". He is a gray colored bunny with big teeth and big feet. His more.

He is iconic not overrated - Spongehouse

32 Zeke (Bob's Burgers)

Lots of people like this character even though he's incredibly obnoxious. - take

33 Pinkie Pie Pinkie Pie is a major character in the 2010 show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, based on Surprise from My Little Pony G1, She represents the element of Laughter.

Average Rated for me - Neonco31

34 Lois Griffin Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.
35 Flame Princess (Adventure Time) Flame Princess Is a Princess made out of fire and lives in her kingdom ruled by here evil father, The Flame King. Her first appearance in the show was “Incendium” (Season 3, Episode 26) She was Finn's girlfriend at one point in the series.

I used to like flame princess she's kind of like the original Raven but kinder but the ruined her character when the made her date Cinnamon Bun and made her flame king. she was like this torn girl trying to find where she stands between good and evil

36 Donald Duck Donald Duck is a cartoon character created in 1934 at Walt Disney Productions. Donald is an anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. He typically wears a sailor shirt and cap with a bow tie.

Weird, his voice, well most of the time I don't know a single thing he is saying, ugly, and really rude

Am I the only one turned off by his obnoxious voice?

37 Ren Höek
38 Belson (Clarence)
39 Marshall Lee Marshall Lee is the gender-swapped version of Marceline, created by the original series designer, Natasha Allegri, who is featured in "Fionna and Cake".

His fangirls are CRAZY annoying - Lunala

Marry me marshy!


Worst man

40 Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.
41 Lincoln Loud (The Loud House)

He is the worst protagonist ever, and worst fictional character ever. He is a character that shouldn't exist, and his cult of followers should dissolve and stop using him as their playtoy.

42 Bender Bender Bending Rodríguez is a fictional character who is one of the main characters in the animated television series Futurama. He was created by series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen and is voiced by John DiMaggio.
43 Bianca DuPree (Beverly Hills Teens)
44 Chris Griffin Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.
45 Mr. Krabs Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He WAS a likable character in the older episodes but now he's a greedy monster who drives people to SUICIDE for FUN. - Garythesnail

He was cool in the beginning but now he's just a greedy jerk. Still can't believe he tried to make Plankton kill himself.

(gets out shotgun)

Over hated, he's hated by everyone. - DCfnaf

46 Brain Griffin

What an annoying, overrated ass. So glad he died. One of the biggest reasons I won't watch the show.

He's dead finally
What they are bringing him back

47 Squidward Tentacles Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Squidward is not a likable character anymore, yet most people says he is. I don't understand. - Svampbob164

So one episode ruins a character? No, Squidward sucked in that episode only. - DCfnaf
