Top 10 Most Overrated Disney Characters


The Top Ten

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

People hate her because she is overrated. Don't blame her, it's not anyone's fault when almost everyone likes them. Being overrated doesn't mean it deserves so much hate.

She's more underrated

Anna is an ungrateful brat. She was locked out and while she had no idea what was happening, it didn't give her a right to assume Elsa was cruel. She thinks too soon like when she thought Elsa and Kristoff were bad and Hans was good. In Frozen Fever, she becomes even more ungrateful and spoiled because she doesn't like anything she gets. Anna doesn't deserve the attention she gets. People like Kristoff and Elsa who tried saving Anna's life are so underrated but they are both heroes. Anna is just a selfish brat!

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.

Elsa isn't a "heroine". She's an antagonist hero.

And stop trying to make it look like Elsa's super special.

Her appearance is too much like Rapunzel's as is Anna's.

Elsa isn't worth defending either, she's a fictional character just like Anna. Get over yourselves. - EveLeech

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

I actually like her and think she's a decent character, but people mainly like her only because of her dress, song, and cause she's mature. - Gabriola

She needs to shut up

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

I don't like any of the characters

3 Stitch - Lilo and Stitch

Finally someone who agrees with me! My sister is nuts with stitch. I think he is very cute but sort of overrated.

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

He's ugly and obnoxious, and Disney over promotes him.

Stitch is adorable he's not overrated!

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

He's sweet and cute but is only in the movie to pander to the under 7 demographic. - Gabriola

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

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

Olaf is not as overrated as other

5 Mulan - Mulan Fa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

If it weren't for the modern feminists, she would have been long forgotten.

I KNOW she saved China! That doesn't mean I have to worship her like some kind of goddess.

There are plenty of other strong female characters, get over her please!

She is not "way underrated" and not "strong" or "badass"! Everyone praises her, puts other female characters down to prop her up, and all but tell any who criticize her the least little bit to kill themselves. She was a whiny brat, submissive to society and family "norms", only acted due to circumstance, and triumphed by luck and chance.

6 Lilo - Lilo and Stitch

Not so much everyone thinks everything she does is cute than some of her weird, freaky, and (let's face it) annoying behavior is totally justified by her rough life yet Vanellope gets ridiculed and criticized left and right for her behavior despite HER rough life. And I'm sorry, but Lilo is the more annoying of the two.

Especially the way everyone thinks everything she says or does is cute yet faults Vanellope from "Wreck-It Ralph" for the same things.

Just as annoying and dumb as Stitch

Lilo is an annoying little psycho. No wonder she has no friends besides an obnoxious space creature; frankly I think even her holy sister merely tolerates her.

7 Judy Hopps - Zootopia Officer Judy Hopps is the protagonist in Disney's 2016 animated feature film Zootopia. The first rabbit to be in Zootopia's police force, Judy is determined to make the world a better place while breaking preconceptions about other species. Teaming up with a fox named Nick Wilde, she sets off on her more.

What I don't get is why many of the same people shoving Mulan and Tiana down everyone's throats give this character credit for things we're supposed to praise Mulan and Tiana for (overcoming sexism and overcoming racism respectively). Mulan and Tiana came first!

Don't know if she should be counted as the very first, but a string of ill-developed "woke feminist" characters have followed the unfortunate box office success of her movie. Disney has even retconned several EXISTING females of theirs to fit the "woke feminist" ideal!

What? I loves this character. Nobody's asking you to worship her though, and the movie is not just about being "politically correct"

This rabbit (can't call her a "chick" given her movie's big "be PC or else" message since that's both a not-PC term and not her actual species) is nothing special; Mulan was the first female to defy convention and what society expected of her. And FYI, I do not like Barney, Dora, Adult Party Cartoon, The Fox and the Hound 2 (or any of the Disney Direct-to-Home-Media sequels and prequels), Foodfight, Sausage Party, Sanjay and Craig, post-Elmo Sesame Street, Fanboy and Chum Chum, newer SpongeBob, Calliou or whatever else you all like to accuse people who go against your personal opinions of liking.

8 Jim Hawkins - Treasure Planet

Overrated, paired with every male and female just because he's "sexy" and I think that's kind of annoying. And I thought Jack Frost fangirls were that bad.

I see him everywhere these days.

"UNDERRATED! - EJ0602" In what universe is being in hundreds if not thousands of fan art, fan fiction, manipulated images, and music videos paired with just about any and every other animated character in existence "underrated" let alone with the need for caps lock?

Whoever originally posted this, bless you: He's about as overrated as Peter Pan. He's every girls fantasy bad boy; he's edgy, he's rebellious, he's sentimental, he has family issues that are only there for five seconds (sorry fans of the movie but it is). At least with Peter Pan he's got charm and likable traits, but Jim, I see none.
Be honest ladies, you only defend the movie just because you think Jim is "sooo hot."

9 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.

She is a Murderer

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.

10 Mickey Mouse Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928.

Why is he overrated? He is the most famouse and important animated character ever - Margarida

Boring and Forgettable character.

Oh the star of Disney.

Why isn't he higher? - RedTheGremlin

The Newcomers

? Merida - Brave Princess Merida is a fictional character from Pixar's first ever Disney Princess film, Brave. She is a talented archer who wishes that she were not destined to become the Elegant Queen of Dun Broch. She is forced into a marriage betrothal by her mother, with whom she has a very negative relationship. more.

The Contenders

11 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? "

She just suddenly became the holy bastion of sisterhood when a certain other Disney movies about sisters got popular. Before that, she was just a supporting character in a movie everyone only loved because of the annoying little extraterrestrial star Disney was and still is trying to push as a mascot.

12 Nick Wilde - Zootopia Officer Nicholas Piberius "Nick" Wilde is a male red fox and the deuteragonist of Zootopia. He is the son of Mrs. Wilde. He was voiced by actor, Jason Bateman.

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

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

If anything he's underrated

He's cool

13 Angel - Lilo and Stitch

That Disney merchandises her and Stitch for wedding and anniversary stuff as much as they do with Mickey and Minnie but more than with Donald and Daisy just makes me cringe.

14 Mushu - Mulan
15 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

16 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

17 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.

Oh, you must be talking about Gaston. GASTON is a rude, arrogant jerk, not Belle. - IceFoxPlayz

18 Baymax - Big Hero 6 Baymax is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

No offense but Disney advertises him too much. It's like they expected him to be the most popular character. Just because he's non human! Yes, I know he's the mascot and all but a lot of other Disney movies has had more than one mascot! I feel like Disney is trying to shove him on bh6 fans but if you noticed, a lot of fans tend to like Hiro and Tadashi more, and how much was Tadashi advertised? Disney sometimes advertises Hiro.

I feel like as they were making the movie, they tried to make Hiro everyone's favorite, but in commercials it was nothing but "Baymax this" and "Baymax that". They hardly ever brought up Hiro except if it was something about Baymax despite him being a bit more important to the movie. But they act like Baymax is more important. And they STILL over advertise Baymax.

While Baymax is a great character, I think in advertizement, he's very overrated! - AnnaOfArendelle332

Why is Baymax here?! Baymax is silly, friendly, and helps the people in need.

Baymax is here because he is overrated, meaning he gets too much love. - RedTheGremlin

19 Esmeralda - The Hunchback of Notre Dame Esméralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
20 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

21 Liv Rooney - Liv and Maddie Olivia "Liv" Rooney is one of the two main protagonists of the Disney Channel original series Liv and Maddie, along with her identical twin sister and best friend Maddie. She is 16 years old and is the oldest member of the Rooney children. Liv also has two younger brothers and two parents who work at more.

Ugh. How do people like her? She's way too overrated but I have no clue why. She's ugly, she's cringe-worthy, she makes a big deal about everything, she thinks she can sing but she really can't, and must I mention her ugly face AGAIN?! She looks like a shrimp on a diaper with Freddy Krueger's nose! Oh, and she has a stupid last name. Sorry (not sorry) Liv, but only Freddy Krueger looks good with his nose. - RedTheGremlin

22 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!

Everyone praises her for doing nothing in the movie. - AnnaOfArendelle332

23 Jasmine - Aladdin
24 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.

People love a robber. I don't get it.

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

25 Joy - Inside Out Joy is the main protagonist of the 2015 Disney/Pixar animated feature film "Inside Out". She is one of the five emotions inside of Riley Andersen's mind and serves as the leader. Hence her name she is very positive and optimistic and wants nothing more but for Riley to be happy.

She is kinda annoying and rude to Sadness

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

Yes, I agree. She is also very selfish and annoying and so sickeningly happy. Plus, Sadness was way better but I think Sadness was more overrated than Joy. - RedTheGremlin

Oh yes she is overrated! - VideoGamefan5

26 Dory - Finding Nemo/Finding Dory

34? , Seriously? , At Least The Characters Above Have ACTUAL Development, Dory Doesn't Have Any, I don't Hate Finding Dory, But Seriously? , Dory Is Just To Basic To The Best Pixar character, I'm Being Honest - VideoGamefan5

Cute But Overrated

She Needs To Have A Higher Spot - VideoGamefan5

Dory should at least be #10 - VideoGamefan5

27 Shank - Ralph Breaks the Internet

Blatant Mary Sue and blatant case of stunt casting

Why does she have such a cult surrounding her?

Why does everyone go out of their way to praise her, even if they criticize anything and everything else about the movie including things *she* instigated (and really only existed *to* instigate)?

28 Tiana - The Princess and the Frog Princess Tiana of Maldonia is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog.

My issue is that she's an annoying workaholic- race has nothing to do with it.

I don't care what color her skin is. Didn't stop me from just wanting to slap her many times throughout the early part of the movie, and no the ending didn't make me suddenly love her either.

No one should aspire to be a workaholic. So much for her being anything resembling a role model!

Not everyone likes the "sassy black woman" character trope. In fact, I think the character trope is racist in and of itself.

29 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.


His only purpose in the film is that of a plot device. No personality whatsoever. I honestly forgot he existed, and I remember virtually everything I watch.

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

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!

30 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.

Ah yes, the Illuminati Dorito we all know and love as Bill Cipher. - IceFoxPlayz

Bill. The most overrated character in any fandom. - santibros2002


Maybe they thought they would get a more mysterious vibe from him - RedTheGremlin

31 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.

She and her phycotic brother/boyfriend are the most overrated Disney team I can think of.

Rogue one is overrated - VideoGamefan5

I ❤ her - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

32 Dipper Pines - Gravity Falls Dipper Pines is one of the main characters from the Disney cartoon Gravity Falls which aired from 2012 to 2016. He is the twin brother of Mabel Pines
33 Phineas Flynn - Phineas & Ferb Phineas Flynn is one of the protagonists of the animated television series Phineas and Ferb. Voiced by Vincent Martella and created and designed by Dan Povenmire, Phineas first appeared along with the rest of the series' main characters in the pilot episode "Rollercoaster." Phineas, along with his stepbrother more.

This ugly-voiced, flag-faced idiot gets too much love. People need to chill out about this butt-ugly crap character. - RedTheGremlin

34 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.
35 Megara - Hercules Meg is a heroine from the Disney movie Hercules. Meg is the love interest for, the protagonist, Hercules. Meg sold her soul to Hades for her boyfriend's freedom. However, the (soon to be ex) boyfriend ended up cheating on her. Meg is scared of getting hurt again. However, once she sees how genuine Hercules's more.

More like UNDErrated I can't believe people hate her!

I HATE HER She is the most OVERRATED Disney character!

36 Moana - Moana Moana is the protagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film of the same name. Born on the island village of Motunui, Moana is the daughter of Chief Tui and Sina, with an inherited love for the seas and voyaging. When her island becomes endangered, Moana is chosen by the ocean to journey across the more.
37 Dopey - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
38 Darth Vader - Star Wars Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.
39 Mater - Cars Tow Mater, or simply Mater, is a character in Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and inspired by a 1951 International Harvester tow truck.

Why did this obnoxious sterotype get a spinoff series?

He's Funny In The First Cars(2006)

But He's Not Funny At All In Cars 2(2011)

40 Woody - Toy Story Sheriff Woody Pride is a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. He is voiced by Tom Hanks in all of the feature-length and short films and by Jim Hanks in video games and shorts. He is a stuffed cowboy character that leads the other toys in adventures in the movies. His facial features are more.

Yes, Woody is overrated, but for a good reason. He is a hero and a very likeable character who can be relatable at times. He is very well developed and has a great personality, so I do think he deserves to be noticed. - RedTheGremlin

41 Dr. Doppler - Treasure Planet
42 Pocahontas - Pocahontas Pocahontas is a title character in Disney's 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
43 Cinderella Princess Cinderella is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 12th animated feature film Cinderella and its sequels Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.

Such a stereotypical blond girl who solved all her problems by getting married.

Actually very stupid, weak gold-digger... she has solved all her problems by married? very stupid, shallow story, and the same character - jbs

44 King Candy/Turbo - Wreck-It Ralph

The worship of this guy within the "Wreck-It Ralph" fandom scared many people away.

45 Grumpy - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
46 Judge Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Yes, he was evil and creepy, but that doesn't make him the be-all end-all of Disney villains and certain not the be-all end-all of movie villains in general.

47 Luke Skywalker - Star Wars Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.
48 Ferb Fletcher - Phineas & Ferb Ferbs "Ferb" Fletcher is a British character on the animated television series Phineas and Ferb.

More like underrated - VideoGamefan5

50 Snow White - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

How is she overrated?!?! Tell me, seriously cause honestly I am so confused. She is really underrated.



She's not overrated, I think she's underrated, she's the very first official disney princess, "she a damsel in distress, and needs a prince to save her, and blah blah blah blah", yea I know but that was made at a time where the girls are damsels in distress and need to be saved. Besides, she taught us to never take food from strangers, so we learned from her!
