Top Ten Reasons to Hate Sakura Haruno

A list of reasons to hate Sakura Haruno - the arguably most hated anime character of all time! ( And one of my personal least favourites as well )

The Top Ten

1 She is annoying

She's insufferably annoying. - Goku02

She's very annoying. I couldn't stand her in the anime and what's worse is that she's the main lead! - RoseRedFlower

Probably the most annoying character in Naruto. or Maybe of the anime - NelMemazo

2 She is selfish

Sakura even said her only goal in life is to marry sasuke while Narutos was to become hokage and Sasuke to get revenge. That's pathetic.
Worst part is she would break friendships for it. Cut off her parents for it. Run away from home for it. She even sabotages the fight with Madara just for Sasuke to notice her and rescue her. Stalks sasuke when he wants to go on his redemption journey alone and force him to get her pregnant and marry.
Sakura is mentally not right. Don't be like her kids

She knocks out her team in order to kill Sasuke but never had the guts to do so. Plus her reason to become a ninja was all about Sasuke. - RoseRedFlower

So many things happening in the ninja world and when she's not up everything she's doing stupid things about Sasuke and her feelings for him. I mean, wake up, not always everything is about you and him. If she had spend the time she cried for Sasuke training, she could have been more useful than a tree the whole anime.

This shown us that she had NO interest in being a kunoichi. Right!

3 She is obsessive

I mean. she was too addicted to sasuke. She said she doesn't care about her parents or family she only wanted sasuke. She would turn friends into enemies for sasuke she would become a criminal and ditch her own parents for sasuke. She doesn't even care about what he wants only sasuke kun! Sasuke kun!. even when everybody was dying she only thinks about getting sasuke senpai to notice her and cried. He left her in the end and she still stalked him to return feelings. She is TOO CREEPY!

Must be sad for sarada that her mom is her dad's fangirl.
she was obsessively stalking him in the forest when he told her not to come with him to give her a baby and then he just left for and cut iff contact with them. And then more than 12 years she sees him and creepily begs for a kiss and he just ditches her. how mad must you be to like that crap.

Get over Sasuke you stupid bitch. What made her daughter more likable than Sakura, was when she called BS on Sakura's 'love' for Sasuke. They made Sarada more likable in a few chapters than all the movies and episodes with Sakura in them. - RoseRedFlower

4 She is ungrateful

Extremely ungrateful to Naruto, her parents and other. - Angelatran

She thinks her parents simple nagging is worse than being an orphan with no parents

She was a terrible friend to Ino.

How's she ungrateful? She's always thanking Naruto!

5 She is a damsel in distress

She was supposed to kill Sasuke in an episode but ended needing to be rescued by Kakashi. Then she has to get saved again (when trying to kill Sasuke) by Naruto. I won't even mention all the times she had to be saved in Part 1. From Zabuza, the Forest of Death, Gaara, etc. - RoseRedFlower

She shouts for help and always cries. Sakura is such a nuisance to everyone

More like a dumbass in distress

Its true. it made her a big burden.

6 She never shuts up

"Sasuke-kun! " " Sasuke-kun! " "SASUKE-KUN! " She makes me sick. - Goku02

She only cares about Sasuke, that is it.

7 She is stupid

Just book smart. She made fun of Naruto's loneliness to Sasuke. What kind of idiots would make fun of an orphan to another orphan? And she even thought that being scolded by parents is better than having no parents in the first place! What a stupid thing to say. - Goku02

She really is stupid. The anime tries to force it by saying she's smart but shes dumb as hell. One of the biggest airheads who only knows to moan sasuke kun notice me I'm so desparate! even when the whole world was getting destroyed

8 She is dependent

She relies on everyone, especially Naruto and Sasuke. She just stands there holding a kunai throughout Naruto, and in Shippuuden she's better but still pretty dependent. - Goku02


9 She is useless

Its not that Sakura is completely useless its that she doesn't MAKE A NOTABLE DIFFERENCE to the story or the others. There is nothing solid that ties her to naruto or sasuke apart from a cringey fangirl crush and MOST of her time is spent spectating and crying and being dependent on others and being a burden in general. Add that to an unpleasant personality she was a recipe for being as unlikable as she is. The bad outweighs the good. Sakura healing here and there was never gonna be enough to make up for all these other factors. As the only girl part of the MAIN ensemble SHE MISERABLY FAILS TO MAKE AN IMPACT while certain side characters have a more interesting arc than her for the readers to invest in. that's the point.

However her toxic fans want to twist it the plain and simple fact is with all the things naruto and sasuke and kakashi have accomplished from start to end Sakura cannot match up to even a single strand of that.
Most of her time is spent shaking and being helpless and scared and getting rescued. Giving some punch lines that she will change and revert back to the same helpless damsel in distress and cry baby. People are in war and she was crying that Sasuke ignored her. What the hell?
she heals here and there like that is most basic thing expected but for the amount of screentime that was given to her she was HARDLY Important for the plot AT ALL and did close to nothing. Just 1 major fight with the help of someone who knew the bad guys powers and weakness very well is not impressive.
While Naruto and Sasuke were far ahead inventing their own jutsu fighting actual god like villians she is depending on them and even they say she is useless to them.Trying to become a carbon copu ...more

I wouldn't call her useless but she's very dependent on others helping her. She couldn't even defeat an Akatsuki member by herself and needed Chiyo to help her. She can't hit anything but the ground despite being super strong and despite us being told how strong she is, we never even see that happen. - RoseRedFlower

This is not one of the reasons why I hate Sakura, because I don't hate useless characters provided that they try their best, like Yamcha, but many people hate her for this reason. I give her credit for at least TRYING to be helpful in Shippuuden. Despite that, she's still pretty useless. And I'm not saying that she's weak, in fact she's definitely one of the strongest kunoichis in history. But that also proves how incredibly useless she is, since despite being more powerful than Hinata, she's more useless than her :P - Goku02

10 She's shallow is character that shouldn't exist in naruto

I mean, look at what she said when lee crushed on her. She was so rude to him for no reason just because she didn't like his eyebrows. & of course there's the reason why she isn't friends with ino anymore.

She started to like Sasuke for no reason at all, and entered in an abusive relationship just because of his looks

I have to agree tonall this

The Contenders

11 She is a hypocrite

In road to ninja she told Naruto he was lucky to not have parents and doesn't like it when Naruto bugs her and wastes her time. Then when they are in the other world she doesn't have parents but is also praised as the daughter of a hero and gets sick of it after one day then heads over to Naruto and his parents house because she wanted to be with a friend like Naruto usually does. She thinks she understands how his life was but she never even realize that 1 day without parents was probably better than the entirety of Naruto's childhood since people knew who her parents were. Then right when they return home and has her parents back and Naruto lost his, her first instinct was to leave Naruto alone and be with her parents, so she never learned anything in the movie.

Sakura made fun of rock lee for his eyebrows but expects sympathy for her big forehead what?!?!

Sakura says she does not want to rely on Naruto in bringing Sasuke back but she always does...

12 She beats people up for no reason

Naruto and Sai
.even tries to beat Sarada but she destroys her house instead

She beated naruto for al least 100 episodes, I say, she was really really annoying but at least she madurated. - NelMemazo


13 She is whiny

Crying, crying, and crying. Why doesn't she try to help instead? - Goku02

Sakura: Sasuke! Where did you go? Don't tell me Kakashi-sensei found you! No! He can't capture my Sasuke! I won't let him!
Me: Must stick head in a freezer... - RoseRedFlower

"Don't go! I'll scream! "
Me: please, u whiny useless dumb@$$. Scream your lungs out so anyone will never have to hear your useless whinny @$$ ever again.

14 She is ugly

Even the exotic features are twisted in her rants and tantrums and I mostly see her as ugly in those times and boring in others

15 She thinks she is as powerful as Naruto and Sasuke (GNW)

Weak as hell. Tried to fight alongside them in the Fourth Great Ninja War and Kaguya. Got turned into a grease ball.

16 She proposed to Naruto even though she knows about Hinata's feelings

The above comment is a big lie sakura did know about Hinata's feelings for Naruto. She actually says "Hinata loves naruto" when she is healing her. But she didn't give a damn about it because everything is about her. She fake confesses to lift the "burden" off herself even though she was the one who begs naruto to bring sasuke back and drugs all her friends who wanted to help her thinking she can do everything alone and acts like a martyr. DISGUSTING.

That is a lie. She "confessed", so she could keep Naruto away from Sasuke (for some reason), and finish him off herself. She lost faith in the possibility of returning Sasuke. As for Hinata's feelings, no, she didn't know at that time.

17 She is so overrated

I get that she's powerful and all, but she, if you look at her overall power level, isn't very strong. All she does is heal, not fight. People over estimate her by a a ton, not only as a character, but in importance and strength. She can't even beat Ino! Even though she is stronger than Hinata, she isn't important hardly at all. The only thing she cares about is her 'Sasuke-kun' and all that crap. I was really mad when she ended up with Sasuke, he deserved so much better than her.

18 She is determined

Yeah... determined to be the biggest bitch of the show.. She is the most privileged girl who got everything handed to her yet she has the audacity to go around whining about me! me! me and crying after sasuke.
Sakura did NOT deserve to be in main role. She did NOT deserve to be handed her asspull Tsunade powerups for plot.

19 She is an abusive mother

She threatens sarada and lies to her then acts like she doesn't do all that in front of sasuke.

Sarada deserves better

She destroyed their house all because she asked if she is her daughter
If that punch went into Sarada, she would have been dead since she is young and not yet as used to being punched unlike Naruto

20 She doesn't even know how to fight

She couldn't even fight against Omoi and he was just a side character with no special skills. And he wasnt even tryint to fight her directly and she still gets thrown to the side easily by him
All she knows how to do is punch a rock really hard that doesn't mean you are good at actually slows down your attack. She knows no strategies no nothing
She cannot punch an enemy unless they are not paying attention and that's so bad...

No she can't fight. 5 people had to resuce her in the chunin exams. She throws a bunch of really slow barbaric punches of effect that's it. Look at her in actual fights. She gets caught by Ino's trap no brains, Omoi throws her to the side in mere seconds, Kakashi has to rescue her from the ten tails spikes as she is too slow to dodge them, she cannot punch the ten tails clone properly they just get back up when she does. Sakura cannot fight at all. And she's a sannin student worst of all. She can't make any strategies and she has no guts to even fight sometimes, always being a crybaby. She ends up burdening her team all the time.

All she does is HEAL. She isn't a ninja, despite having that strength, SHE CAN'T EVEN DEFEAT INO!

She fought Ino in the original series, before she got the what's-it-called Seal

21 She is a negative generator in Naruto

She literally caused the While Mugen Tsukyomi that thousands of people died trying to prevent it. AND Everything else like manipulating and lying causing EVEN MORE PROBLEMS. She drugs everyone trying to help her so she can kill her sasuke senpai and then SHE doesn't DO IT! What an actual Idiot. She is an overall rude person and horrible backstabbing friend too. I hate her horrible character


22 She is replaceable

She pretty much is an exact copy of tsunade! I get that she was taught by her but she ressembles tsunade in too many ways at once!

Her Jutsus are copied exactly from Tsunade, can't do anything special herself.
She cannot emotionally bond with Naruto or Sasuke as she is a nobody to them and doesn't understand anything about their suffering because she is just a normal annoying girl


23 She is not a team player
24 She insulted the Naruto Family

Yes, only see the episode 3. - NelMemazo

25 She's too weak

She even struggles to fight Ino. Only one fight in shippuden the himself guy wanted to die. Also she is mentally too weak. Only knows the talk, but always cries and whines when it matters. Its irritating how she just claimed she is as strong as sasuke and naruto. Biggest joke of the century. Girl you got kicked in the face by Omoi!

26 She is a bad friend

She was a horrible friend to Ino

Ino is the bad friend! Only see the remembers of sakura when she was younger. - NelMemazo

27 She is a wimp

Sakura is always crying and too scared to do anything during crucial moments - like removing Obito's rinnegan to avoid Madara from getting it

28 She undermines Naruto and Sasuke's friendship

She thinks Naruto is bringing back Sasuke for her and not because he actually shares a special bond with Sasuke, because according to Sakura the whole world revolves around her and he is her pet who would do anything for her.
Also why would she think Naruto had feelings for her just because Sai said "according to me he likes you". Sai doesn't even know what smiling means and reads books about it and she just believed him? Even after she witnessed his blood vow to Hinata? And his reaction when pein hurt her? Shows that she hardly knows anything about her own teammates.

She treated naruto like a pity case and tried to manipulate him by saying she loved him. didn't care about naruto wanting to bring back sasuke for his reasons because everything is about her.
I would've been a lot more ruder than naruto was she is the biggest bitch

29 She is a cry baby

She cries for everything.
When others cry that they lost their family she cries because sasuke doesn't notice her or she is so scared of the villian that others have no problem fighting

30 She is a burden to everyone

Sakura is simply a burden to the team. She always has to be saved by many people when it's HER FAULT why she gets into trouble. It must be so frustrating for Kakashi and Yamato and Naruto and Sasuke to constantly rescue her because she is SO INCOMPETENT and they have to fight the bad guys at the same time because she can't do anything

31 She is an abuser

Physically and mentally abuses people constantly.
I fear for her patients she would only worsen their condition because she has anger issues.

32 She has a big ego

Sakura thinks she is as strong as naruto and sasuke even when she does nothing to contribute and always has to be saved by them. Also in her mind she thinks just because she is the student of the 5th hokage so she is so great and even insults Tsunade. Tsunade would have trained anyone, she is not so special

33 She makes terrible decisions

Getting with sasuke, breaking up a good friendship for a guy you know nothing about, trying to minipulate Naruto to not feel guilty about what he promised then placing that burden back onto him when attempting to kill sasuke twice... like holy c**p I think I found something more dumb than ‘modern’ Patrick Star!

34 She is Manipulative

Sakura tries to manipulate naruto by lying to him but he told her he hates big liars like sakura which she deserved.
Also manipulates Sasuke by telling him if Sasuke leaves she will get hurt or be lonely without any concern about how he is feeling.

35 She jeopardizes her team just to prove herself

Remember when Kakashi told his team to use team work and sakura refuses to listen and just charges ahead without making a plan just to prove she is strong and at their level? Yeah she isn't fooling anyone. What a weakling

36 She caused the Infinite Tskuyomi

It was all sakura's fault...because she was too scared to stab something. How is she even a ninja?

37 She beats Naruto and loves Sasuke

She beats Naruto a lot even though he saved her ass so many times, and she loves someone who neglected and tried to kill her. Seriously, how is she even a ninja? what

38 She Insulted Tsunade

Despite clinging to Tsunade to give her magical strength and using her name to boost herself up sakura insulted tsunade by saying she uses chakra to look younger as if doesn't care about looks. Just look at how she insults lee and chases after sasuke. DISRESPECTFUL UNGRATEFUL HYPOCRITE. TSUNADE DESERVED A BETTER STUDENT.

39 Only Loves Herself and Sasuke

She is a self obsessed b**** who doesn’t give a crap about anyone else even if they openly admit the you’re in love with her she still insults them and bullies them like how does anyone even love or care about her she is stupid and a no good person all she cares about is herself and Sasuke. She's a useless character and nobody loves her

40 She Married Someone Who Tried To Kill Her 3 Times.

I don't hate Sakura (I simply dislike her), but this sure is a reason to dislike her. Honestly...such low standards and respect for herself, marrying herself to someone who only treated her with cruelty and clear intent on that he found her annoying.

41 She is Not Important

At the end of the day people love and fondly remember only Naruto and Sasuke's relationship. Sasuke had to be with a random girl so sakura was created. Apart from that...didn't look like there was any thought put to her character or any purpose. She got some asspull forced powerups by the end but even that didn't help.
Masashi kishimoto openly admitted to simply drawing her pretty so she would gain popularity which shows the extent of how much he didn't care about her. Neither do any fans

42 She is bad female representation
