Most Overrated Cartoon Characters

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

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read 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

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

2 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! :-/

3 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...

Really? tina not overrated

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 ...read 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

Such a Mary Sue.

5 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

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

6 Randy Marsh Randy Marsh
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.

He is overrated - Lunala

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

9 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.

SHUT THE HELL UP, DORA THE EXPLORER! WE GET IT, DAMMIT!

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

10 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?

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

The Contenders

11 Invader Zim 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.

12 Steven Universe Steven Universe

Yes. This whole show is overrated. - take

13 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

15 Beemo (Adventure Time)

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

16 Fluttershy Fluttershy Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010 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.

Shes way more over rated than pinkie pie...

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

More like flutterbitch! She is manipulative, bossy and whinny! Go watch the dragons flutterbitch, since you forced rainbow dash to watch the boring butterflies!

I hate Fluttershy! She is annoying and a TOTAL MARY SUE!

First of all, her personality: Caring, Pretty, Friendly, all these good things, and her only major flaw is shyness which is portrayed as being a good thing! She also acts OOC and is actually very rude, but NO! She’s OH SO PERFECT! She CAN’T have flaws or be rude even when she is manipulative and bossy!

Everyone who hates or disagrees with her in the show is portrayed as evil, because OH NO! She’s too PERFECT! Anyone who disagrees with her is oh-so EVIL!

If I met her in real life I would make her cry and then beat her up and burn her in a fire.

Because I HATE Mary-Sue characters! - Lunala

22 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 and is one of 6 mane characters on the show. ...read more.

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!

THANK YOU, classic sally will always be better than sally form now, whats so special about new sally, all she is a weak edgy bratty chipmunk furry princess thing. WHY does she have to look like a furry, she just makes others feel bad, this is not the sonamy problem, I get it I do NOT ship sonic x amy.
Just in the archies she slapped sonic, she acts like shes gothic to make boys love her, she is not even pretty, furry fandoms are gonna run in and love her form that cringe look that human hair and the thick body, that jacket of hers is making her look cool so the boys can get jelous! I do not even like her, what ever happen to classic sally with a non-furry like style, she cared for her friends, she was nice to everyone, and did not even slap sonic!
why are so many people loving the new sally, maybe that is just edgy teenaged girl that is dressing in a sally fursuit and locked the classic sally up...and the worst thing I want to say... I KIND OF LOOK LIKE HER, and I do not want to ...more
