The Top Ten
1 Bendy (Bendy and The Ink Machine) Bendy, occasionally referred to as "the Dancing Demon" is the titular antagonist of TheMeatly Games' indie horror game Bendy and the Ink Machine. He is an inky demon with a wide grin and a thin build, and he wears a bow tie on his chest.

He is known for his incredibly difficult ...read more.

Not trying to be salty here, but I seriously don’t get why people think he’s so powerful when he has ONLY 1 HP and Attack Power is only 1 as well. I mean, he launches a bunch bones at you at once, but each of them do only do very few damage. And sure, he dodges, but still... He isn’t as powerful as many claim him to be. Not to mention, HE GOT KILLED BY A KID, not with a bomb, not with nuke, not with a machine gun, but with just a plain ol’ KNIFE.
Also, I feel like half of the people only like him because of Megalovania. It’s a good soundtrack, don’t get me wrong.
I totally get we all have different opinions, but still...

Stupid game stupid character, he is NOT Ness.

He is annoying not funny like olaf

Everyone loves him. He has a tragic backstory. He gets the girl. He has superpowers. He has only one flaw, and that's this rare rock thing. He is literally perfect. He's a Gary Stu.

She is the most Mary Sueish thing the the Sonic universe and anyone that thinks that any version of Sally is more Mary Sueish than Amy then you are legit crazy.

Amy doesn't deserve any form of defense.

She'd be better off dead to be honest

She is the Sonic character with the worst fanbase. Most of her fans don't respect her haters opinions of even her dislikers opinions and most of them are mean to Sally (who is the character with the worst hatebase)

Amy should've been the one to fall to the ground and get comatized in the Endgame Comic arc instead of Sally.

Amy should've been the one to get roboticized instead of ...more
