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...

He is annoying not funny like olaf

Everywhere you look everywhere you are it’s the sans! He’ll keep on coming for ya. Yes he’s become so overrated that I am beginning to hate him. I never even liked him in the first place. I mean, he’s just a skeleton. If a skeleton said, “Hey, wanna go to Grillbyz? ,” most people would scream. I don’t know where I’m going with this. Most people say that they don’t hate on sans ships (he doesn’t deserve a capital letter) but I’m gonna go say here the I HATE fontcest and Frans and worst of all, sanscest. Yes. I mean, how narcissistic are you? Don’t be like Mettaton. If I see another Paperjams daycare, I’ll barf. No. Just no.

I HATE YOU AMY! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND ENERGY!

YOU ARE THE WORST CHARACTER EVER!

HOW DARE YOU BE MEAN TO SONIC AND NEVER LET HIM HAVE HIS PERSONAL SPACE! HOW DARE YOU BE BRATTY AND WANT ALL THE ATTENTION!

NO ONE ASKED FOR YOU! YOU ARE COMPLETELY USELESS IN THE GAMES, COMICS, CARTOONS! ETC

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.
