Top 10 Most Overrated Nicktoon Characters That Aren't From The Loud House
This entire list feels like something that would have been made in 2014 when Mr.Enter was at the height of his popularity.
In other words, criticism that takes cartoons way too seriously. There's things to be genuinely appreciated about the craft, but to treat these shows this seriously in this way is silly, and the hyperbole on display is stunning.
Almost an even bigger source of memes than Spongebob himself - xandermartin98
Amazingly the LEAST overrated of SBSP's top three characters in my opinion, but nevertheless, he's still ridiculously annoying and steals the spotlight from quite a few other Nickelodeon stars with FAR more developed personalities (Zim, Rocko, Ren Hoek, Jenny Wakeman, Danny Phantom, Plankton and Sandy from the EXACT same show that he comes from, etc) - xandermartin98
If you want to make a character, you need a reason for it to be memorable. Patrick is stupid, squidward is that cranky neighbor we all know about, sandy is that sciency redneck, and mr krabs is that cheapskate who would literally kill someone for money. Spongebob has nothing to be memorable about. He's just that main character who's annoying.
Believe me, I've seen his fangirls; I KNOW
(also, he plays an alarmingly similar role in the Invader Zim series to that of the Minions in the Despicable Me series; as in HE'S AN INCREDIBLY CHEAP AND STUPID MARKETING GIMMICK ON THE CREATORS' PART) - xandermartin98
Did this list really need to be made? -UltraSandStorm
Extremely boring, ugly and one-dimensional? CHECK
Spoiled brat that thinks he has it rough? SUPER CHECK
High-pitched and obnoxious voice? SUPER DUPER CHECK
Overshadows far more interesting characters from the same show?
CROCKER FOR EXAMPLE - xandermartin98
A much more realistic Mr. Bighead, but also a FAR less entertaining one - xandermartin98
Even though I personally find him to be really the only thing GOOD about the show besides Powdered Toast Man and maybe a few of the other side characters (most likely Wilbur Cobb), Ren is still a HILARIOUSLY overpraised character through and through nevertheless.
Granted, he IS a hilariously psychotic character with an even more hilariously top-notch set of voice actors to boot, as well as being deeply relatable to mentally deranged cynics like myself and single-handedly providing the show with pretty much ALL of its definitive highlight moments...
but like I've already said before, grotesquely expressive and "ugly in appearance yet sexy in personality" as he may be, "able to carry an entire 52-episode show on his shoulders alone with the episodes lasting nearly an entire half-hour each" he simply isn't (obviously, Rocko isn't either, but he at least gets a free pass for not being literally the ONLY character of his show's entire cast with even the slightest modicum of ...more - xandermartin98
Once again, this character is EXTREMELY stupid and annoying (in addition to coming from EASILY one of THE most cloyingly pretentious and "wannabe-edgy" cartoons ever made), but at the very least, he DOES have an actual personality and is funny for reasons that are admittedly pretty sophisticated by Nickelodeon standards (basically, he's a stereotypical Omnicidal Maniac/Large Ham villain who is so hilariously awful at his job that he ends up accidentally SAVING the world in the process of attempting to destroy it; also more-or-less an alien version of Ren from Ren & Stimpy) - xandermartin98
Good character, yes, but you have to admit that if you've watched enough of anime, you've basically seen him in least a THOUSAND other shows (read: his "naive young boy from the farmlands who grows up to become the greatest hero the world has ever known" personality is RIDICULOUSLY generic and cliched)
Also sorely lacks the foot-fetish appeal that Toph has, just for the record - xandermartin98
Bland character. - iliekpiez
Doug despite being a good character he's pretty bland compared to other teenage cartoon characters like Danny Fenton, Ginger Fowltey and Luna Loud. - egnomac
Basically embodies all of the reasons why I utterly despise this show so much despite having immense respect for its massive historical relevance amongst Nickelodeon shows; in fact, the show even literally has an entire full-length episode (Stimpy's Fan Club, to be exact) dedicated SOLELY to making fun of how absurdly overrated and unfunny this character is. Let's see:
- He never says anything smart, funny or interesting
- He exists purely as generic comic relief and really nothing else
- He has only one of THE most appallingly hideous character designs I've ever seen in my life (if nothing else, at least Ren's is somewhat species-accurate)
- He's gross entirely for the sake of being gross
- Again, he overshadows many of the actually GOOD characters from Nickelodeon (also including Ren himself, just for the record) - xandermartin98
As ridiculously excellent as this show may admittedly be overall, I personally consider Heffer to be EASILY the weakest link of its main cast personality-wise (yes, he's still incredibly hilarious for what he's worth and has an astonishingly dark backstory behind the insufferably rude, immature and selfish way that he acts, but at the end of the day, he's still really just your average "fat idiot" stereotype that has appeared in about a MILLION other sitcoms from both the animated and live-action mediums alike; overall, Filburt, the Bigheads, and even Rocko himself are all MUCH funnier and have way more going on with them as characters when taking Heffer's aforementioned "raised by wolves" origins out of the equation, with Filburt's late-series marriage to Dr. Hutchison and Mr. Bighead's never-ending struggle with his OWN marriage being perfect examples) - xandermartin98
