Top 10 Most Overrated Disney Characters


The Top Ten

1 Elsa - Frozen Elsa - Frozen Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

WHY DID YOU PUT THE BEAUTIFUL QUEEN ELSA IN THIS LIST?!?!?! SHE'S THE BEST CHARACTER EVER AND IF SHE'S REAL AND IF SHE SEES THIS, THEN SHE WILL CRY! YOU MEANIES SHOULD GET SOUP POURED TO YOU FOR HATING QUEEN ELSA! There are also still a lot of any other likable things about Elsa too besides other than only just her ice magic powers, her looks and even her queen status, aren't there? Elsa was a character written to be misunderstood. The script writers and producers certainly succeeded. I don't care if someone can manipulate snow and ice, I've seen several people do it in fiction, *scoff* I really don't get why people make such a BIG DEAL about Queen Elsa! However, I still think Disney should've tried harder to do a movie about 'The Snow Queen.' My biggest main complaint about Frozen is that Elsa the Snow Princess/Queen didn't/doesn't always get to use her ice magic powers all the time enough at all. The "Let It Go" sequence was the highlight for me. I still always wanted to see Elsa do ...more

Seriously, people won't shut up about her, and ignore her sister. Example: they just came out with Elsa and Anna's new holiday dress. Anna had such a cute dress, while Elsa had ice Dress 3.0. But no Anna "looked like crap" while nobody will shut up about hers. I swear, they recolored it and added fluffy stuff on the top of it. But what did I expect? Elsa could wear rags, and Anna could wear a beautiful dress, and people will STILL think Elsa's is better

Sorry Elsa but I have to press the vote button. Sorry but have you noticed she runs away from her mistakes rather than at least TRY to fix it and she pushes away everyone who tries to help. And before anyone tries to say that she was trying to save the kingdom. Watch the movie again. She was only tryng to save herself. I could go on and on about how Elsa is overrated but I will say this-an ice dress and powers don't convince me. Elsa is NOT a role model.

Top 5 should all be from frozen - ikerevievs

2 Olaf - Frozen Olaf - Frozen Olaf the Snowman is a character from the 2013 animated film Frozen, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Extremely annoying, cliche-but Disney doesn't care, he makes fun plush toys for the little ones! This bastard... Is everywhere.

Olaf is not as overrated as other

He made a rather okay Disney movie into something good! I like him! - MichaelAftonUTTP

He's stupid because of his song.

3 Anna - Frozen Anna - Frozen Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

I don't hate Anna but I wouldn't call her a character worth any merit since her personality is literally ripped from Rapunzel; cute, socially awkward, dorky.

Put Rapunzel and Elsa's faces together and there are differences. Elsa's iris is even distinct that Rapunzel's. But Elsa was more developed and more progressive in her origins. She's also legal, she's not a princess, she's a queen. Rapunzel and Anna are supposed to look cute like they're barely 18, but Elsa is 21, she's mature, she doesn't follow the standard princess roles because she's actually unique. So basically I don't think it's worth your time to be defending Anna because Elsa is clearly the better looking and well developed heroine.

I agree with you. I would never ever even call her a character worth any merit since her personality is literally ripped from Rapunzel; cute, socially awkward, dorky. That Anna is just a Rapunzel clone. Frozen would've been perfect without this obnoxious, insufferable broad because Elsa really should've been the REAL star! Elsa was a character written to be misunderstood. The script writers and producers certainly succeeded. I don't care if someone can manipulate snow and ice, I've seen several people do it in fiction, *scoff* I really don't get why people make such a BIG DEAL about Queen Elsa!

So I saw the Frozen christmas special (on T.V.) and of course, all the scenes with Elsa were great, and all her singing parts were as beautiful as she looked in her sparkling new dress. Seriously, an animated character should not be this gorgeous. But the rest of it was bad, and mostly because of this inferior Rapunzel (Tangled) clone. I HATE her so much! She was incredibly annoying and irritating. Even worse, that Anna was all over the first canon Frozen movie! There was more of Anna than poor Elsa! Elsa's canon characterization should've been properly given enough to do back then before. Elsa The Snow Queen actually should've been the canon title instead of Frozen and Elsa the snow queen deserves better than this inferior carbon copy of Rapunzel (Tangled).

Not at all much to look at anyway!

4 Rapunzel - Tangled Rapunzel - Tangled Rapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After. She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

Nope. I love Rapunzel. In fact, I prefer Rapunzel over and Frozen character

Sorry but I found her annoyingly overrated.

She's an annoying Mary Sue with eyes like a fish. She didn't have actual chemistry with Eugene, they looked like just friends and then kissed.

Rapunzel is better than Elsa and Anna. Suck it on.

5 Kristoff - Frozen Kristoff - Frozen Kristoff Bjorgman is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated feature Frozen.

According to Disney culture, in this movie, there had to be someone to replace Hans for Anna. And in this case, this little douche was the guy. - NerdyPweeps

Um... let me just say he's NOT overrated. THE SISTERS ARE OVERRATED!

@NerdyPeeps Your awesome XDD - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

6 Belle - Beauty and the Beast Belle - Beauty and the Beast Belle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991) and in the live action remake Beauty and the Beast (2017). Belle is the intelligent and selfless young daughter of an inventor who does not conform to the normal ways of her small more.

Just another princess. Sweet and adventurous get not very worthy of her praise

She fell in love with a talking buffalo on two legs with major anger issues.Enough has been said.

I hate belle. she is a rude, arrogant jerk.

7 Maximus - Frozen

Wow, someone was so obviously blinded by their hatred of "Frozen" that they failed to remember which movie Maximus actually came from.

Um, who's Maximus? That sounds like a really awesome name, though. - RockFashionista

He's in Tangled not frozen!

Maximus is from Tangled! - EJ0602

8 Honey Lemon - Big Hero 6 Honey Lemon - Big Hero 6

"Everyone praises her for doing nothing in the movie"

And this would be why there are no dolls or other merchandise of her. At least Elsa and Anna did a lot of things in their movie.

Modern feminism- that's why she and GoGo keep getting praise despite their non-essential role in "A Boy and His Robotic Balloon Thing".

Before I watched the movie everyone was obsessing over her like she was actually important. So I watched the movie and HATED her. I find her to be unrealistic and I also find her fans extremely annoying. They always obsess over every little thing she does. Agh!

Lol true

9 Ariel - The Little Mermaid

The Nostalgia Chick already said it best.

Why so many people likes Arie? Ariel is one of the worst disney character ever - Sandez

10 Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert - Tangled Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert - Tangled Flynn Rider is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short film Tangled Ever After.

As a huge Tangled fan, I agree, Flynn Rider is overrated because of one thing, his looks. There is more to what he plays in Tangled just than being the handsome guy. He's the real protagonist of Tangled, because Rapunzel stays the same the whole time. If people would just stop arguing "Oh stop calling him Flynn or ugh I hate the name Eugene Fitzherbert" I liked Flynn/ Eugene because of his character change over his looks.

WHO MADE THIS LIST? There is a huge difference between a lot of people liking the character and the character being overrated. Flynn is not overrated...he is hilarious and he's not annoying, which is a trait of an overrated character.

Yeees he's cute. Fine we get the gist. For an animated character that 89% call "sexy" for his appearance and masculinity plus his toothpick legs and his ugly smolder

Flynn Rider has looks that is all he has to offer. Flynn is more overrated that Rapunzel, because Rapunzel is that one that has to constantly save Flynn frorm danger. She stopped the pub thugs (underrated) from beating him senseless, saved him from the guards, healed him from his injury, saved him from Maximus and offered to stay with Mother Gothel forever ino order to heal him and lastly she healed him with her tears bringing him back to life. All Flyyn/Eugeune has done is steal Rapunzel's crown, abandon the Stabbington brothers and cut Rapunzels hair to save her, that is brave and he even shows her the world which is so kind. But Flynn has done far less than Rapunzel and gets more recognition.

14 Tadashi Hamada - Big Hero 6 Tadashi Hamada - Big Hero 6 Tadashi Hamada is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 54th animated feature, Big Hero 6. The film is inspired by a Marvel comic book of the same name.

Will people shut up about his death? Disney has had sadder deaths! - AnnaOfArendelle332

The fans are an absolute train wreck. They want Disney to magically resurrect a piece of wood in an unconfirmed sequel at the cost of Hiro's feelings. Yeah they don't take Hiro into consideration, nope it's all about Tadashi. F'd up logic and it rustles my jimmies.

He isn't overrated! Shut up about his death not being sad! Imagine if your brother/sister/sibling died! Everyone who complains about his death not being sad are idiots!

Okay, so the fans are getting super annoying! Wait, no they are super annoying! I get his death was sad, yes, but I'm so sick of people DEMANDING he come back to life in the sequel. What about people who related to Hiro? There are a lot of them and it would be a huge stab in the back to them. How about Hiro? He literally almost KILLED someone because of the death. Yet, people expect Hiro to be completely okay with it. Yeah, of course he would be happy to see his brother alive, but wouldn't that be a stab in the heart as well? I also hate how a lot of fans claim it wouldn't ryin the first movie at all. I just sit here, like "Did you even see the movie at all? Or did you just watch until Tadashi died? "

I'm sorry, as sad as it was when he died, he doesn't need to come back. Before you say "But it happens in Marvel all the time. Sunfire came back" Oh, but it isn't technically Marvel. It's a Disney animated movie very loosely based on a Marvel comic. I mean VERY loosely. Also, ...more

15 Nick Wilde - Zootopia Nick Wilde - Zootopia

A typical "bad guy who just needed some love" type, his story is so cliche.

His concept was to be Judy's partner, The executions seriously feels like he hates the bunny.

This list is fox crap! (no offense Nick! )

I like Nick. I really do. I just think that he is extremely overrated.
I can see why fans like him. He was a character who changed for the good and ended up being really likable in the end. I like that about him. It made him really interesting. He was overall a pretty good character.

But was he really THAT good?

Don't think I'm against Zootopia, because I'm not. I love the movie to death. I just think that Nick gets WAY too much attention. I mean, come on, guys, other characters exist!
This leads me to my first point on why he's overrated.

#1. He literally overshadows everyone!
The fans just go absolutely bananas over him! He even overshadows Judy! Everyone spends too much time thinking about his backstory to even think about the other characters! I mean, look at Mr. Big for example! It would be so cool to find out about how he gained such a high position as a feared crime boss! But no one can imagine that because they are to caught up in thinking about a ...more

16 Joy - Inside Out Joy - Inside Out

I don't hate Joy, but honestly she pushes every emotion towards the side. Plus, she decides that no other emotion should have a core memory with their colour apart from herself. Joy shows that she loves Riley more than any thing and will do any thing to keep her safe and happy. But what makes her really unlikeable is how she is neglectful towards Sadness but she takes it too far when she abandons Sadness in long term memory. Even though she becomes kind-hearted towards Sadness in the end and has Sadness save Riley, Sadness always has to say 'Sorry' to Joy, whilst Joy has never said 'Sorry' to Sadness once for all the neglectful behaviour Joy gave her. To be honest Joy was a total jerk in the movie and was like Elsa. - EJ0602

Oh yes she is overrated! - VideoGamefan5

17 Jyn Erso - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jyn Erso - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jyn Erso is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by English actress Felicity Jones in the 2016 film Rogue One.

Rogue one is overrated - VideoGamefan5

18 Nani - Lilo and Stitch

Nobody really cared about her or played up what a "perfect sister" she was until Frozen got popular.

Loving sister my... Yeah, she cried over Lilo being taken away, but those "sweet" moments everyone insists occured only occured in their imagination.

Buried comment, in response to cries of her not being overrated or her being underrated: "People who otherwise didn't give her a second thought because they were too busy worshiping the blue devil back in the day starting rubbing everyone's noses in her solely because they hate Frozen. I don't care for Frozen myself but if Nani was really that great why wasn't anybody singing her praises before Frozen? "

Who cared about her "doing anything to keep her and Lilo together", or about her at all, before late 2013?

19 Stitch - Lilo and Stitch Stitch - Lilo and Stitch

Disney's alleged "REAL movie about sisters" was actually all about this guy.

Needs to be #1. Disney has a lot of nerve to think that this obnoxious annoying freak is anywhere near Mickey, Donald, and Goofy's league.

Stitch is overrated as hell I hate stitch because one girl on Instagram who she is stitches number one fan its annoying she buys stitch items everyday

Tired of him. Have been for several years, even before there was such a thing as "Frozen".
