Most Overrated Cartoon Characters

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

The Top Ten

1 Peter Griffin 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!

Oh he'll no you did not just say that,BITCH! :-/

2 Peridot (Steven Universe) 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.

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

I love Peridot to be honest

Peridot? I think you mean a green angry dorito

3 Randy Marsh Randy Marsh
4 Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls) 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.

Bills actually a great charter

Such a Mary Sue.

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


6 Tina Belcher (Bob's Burgers) 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...

She's the blandest, least funny character on the show. - stevesmith6

7 SpongeBob Squarepants 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...

8 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

In the Happy Tree Friends fandom, apparently you are not allowed to hate/dislike Flippy or else his fangirls will go crazy. Watch any episode video on YouTube and 90% of the time, one of the most recent comments will be a fan crying "where's flippy? " or another complaining that he died.

Speaking of death, most Flippy fans complain when characters like Splendid and Cro-Marmot never die yet they like Flippy who also never dies.

Fangirls any fangirls suck! but I can name overatted characters form my little pony in the fan version octiva and DJ PON 3. I am gonna add them on this list any way flippy suck and I do not know any else characters names but flippy he has a gun an guns are overatted!

9 Louise Belcher (Bob's Burgers) 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

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

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

10 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

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.

The Contenders

11 GIR (Invader Zim) GIR (Invader Zim)

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.

GIR is WORSHIPPED?! I didn't know that. That's just wrong and creepy. - Garythesnail

Paswg obviously stole gir of course he's overrated

12 Fionna the Human

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

13 Flame Princess (Adventure Time) Flame Princess (Adventure Time) Fame Princess Is a Princess made out of fire and lives in her kingdom ruled by here evil father, Flame King. Here first time shown in Adventure Time was in the episode " Hot to the touch " ( season 4, episode 1) She is Finn's Girlfriend. She appears in episodes like, " Burning Low, " " Vault of Bones, more.
14 Eric Cartman 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?

15 Dora the Explorer 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.


The worst cartoon forever

Dora: what was your favorite part
Me: When you were in Hitler's Concentration Camp and you died
Dora:I liked that too
I had to put Hitler in it who is way better than Dora

16 Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty) Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty) Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.
17 Sylveon Sylveon Sylveon is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Fairy type Pokemon, and one of the many evolved forms of Eevee. It was one of the first Fairy Pokemons revealed, although its typing was not shown till later. Classified as the Intertwining Pokemon, Sylveon has ribbon-like more.

Sylveon is actually one of my favorite Pokemon but I respect your opinion though. - PerfectImpulseX

18 Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus pony from the popular 2010 kid's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty is one of most well known characters of the show. She may be a little mean sometimes but she still does what is best for her friends .

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

She should be number 1, most overrated.

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

I could name at least 100 more powerful characters than her. Even her sonic rainboom would have nothing against Madokami!
