I will list characters I see in almost every top ten I see or get more praise than other characters.

The Top Ten

1 Yoshi (Mario Franchise) Yoshi (Mario Franchise) Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

Overrated as hell, he is at the top of every Mario related character top list! - GumballWatterson

2 Link (The Legend of Zelda Series) Link (The Legend of Zelda Series) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

He is not the best character of Nintendo, Mario is! - GumballWatterson

That is true!
That is also true!

4 Nala (The Lion King) Nala (The Lion King)

I'm embarrassed to vote for this, but people need to stop vandalizing every "worst" and "overrated" list with TLK characters! If you hate TLK, that's fine, but that is no excuse to vandalize every list like this with everything related to TLK! Also I am 99% sure that the person who put this on the list is that disrespectful TLK hater that is known to vandalize every "worst" and "overrated" list with anything related to TLK! The only reason I voted for this entry is so that I could explain this to people!

STOP IT WITH THE LION KING VANDALIZIM ON THIS LIST! - GumballWatterson
