Top 10 Reasons Why Elsa Is Overrated

If that fangirl comes over here... I hate Frozen but this one character...

The Top Ten

1 She gets too much attention

However, I still think Disney should've tried harder to do a movie about 'The Snow Queen.' My biggest main complaint about Frozen is that Elsa the Snow Princess/Queen didn't/doesn't always get to use her ice magic powers all the time enough at all. The "Let It Go" sequence was the highlight for me. I still always wanted to see Elsa do something, anything and everything much more spectacular than ever all the time in canon, but she never did at all and it's all thanks to all of those cruel, unfair, lazy creators of Frozen who got away with disappointing all of us. My other biggest main complaint about the show, Once Upon A Time is that Ingrid the Snow Princess/Queen didn't/doesn't always get to use her ice magic powers all the time enough at all either. I also still always wanted to see Ingrid do something, anything and everything much more spectacular than ever all the time in canon too, but she also never did at all either and it's also all thanks to all of those unfair writers of ...more

Oh, come on, seriously, creators of Frozen, don't any of you creators of Frozen ever know and realize that anybody and anybody else in the movie Frozen entirely was born with elemental magical powers too besides Elsa so far. You creators of Frozen entirely do realize that it's just not fair that Elsa is the only one in the movie Frozen was born with elemental, magical powers so far. We entirely hope you do realize that Elsa is and was not the only one who entirely was born with elemental, magical powers in the movie Frozen so far.

Are you serious? I bet you just want to have another elemental-powered character just so Elsa could fall in love with AND ALL OF THE STORY will revolve around her. - EveLeech

There are also other likable things about Elsa other than only just her sparkly dress, white-blond hair, super pale skin, and ice powers, even Idina Menzel too, aren't there? Elsa was a character written to be misunderstood. The script writers and producers certainly succeeded. I don't care if someone can manipulate snow and ice, I've seen several people do it in fiction, *scoff* I really don't get why people make such a BIG DEAL about Queen Elsa!

That stupid Grand Pabbie should've been more clear with how eight year old Princess Elsa needed to control her abilities back then before in canon. It would've saved poor Elsa from being isolated for a long time.

2 She gets praise more

Sub-Zero should've been the one to properly raise Elsa (Frozen) to be less isolated much better than ever in canon instead of those undeserved, so called parents.

I understand that Elsa closed herself in and let herself suffer for the happiness of others, INCLUDING her sister. BUT it totally ticks me off when they claim that Elsa was overall the "good guy" of the story when she did almost nothing but cause disaster and not attempt to fix it!

Her fans anger me so much because of the fact they gloss over Elsa's flaws so much by justifying her unheroic actions, such as: coldly rebuffing her sister, willing to ignore how people see her, throwing her sister and her allies with a killer bodyguard, almost slaughtering the Duke's guards when she could just cage them, etc.

IF ANYTHING, the real heroes of the story are Anna(also partially her fault, but is willing to make up for them), Olaf(the symbol of Anna's and Elsa's sisterly bond), Kristoff, and Sven. - EveLeech

I honestly don’t think it would be any different than how it is in the film. However, the interesting thing about Elsa is that, not only was she educated and trained to be a queen, but she had these ice powers that she had to learn to control. It was kind of like a “double whammy” in a way, since Elsa was carrying an extra burden and responsibility on her shoulders. Not to mention it’s probably why her parents gave her a lot more attention as she grew up than they did to Anna.
I just think that Anna and Elsa would the same people they are now, even if Anna was older and Elsa was younger. Elsa would undoubtedly still have her ice powers, but it makes me wonder if it would be harder for their parents to help Elsa control them while also having to train Anna as the future queen. When the girls were growing up, the king and queen spent a lot more time with Elsa to help her control her magic while simultaneously teaching and preparing her for how to be queen.

3 People say that Anna didn't do anything when she actually did

WHY DID YOU PUT THE BEAUTIFUL QUEEN ELSA IN THIS LIST?!?!?! SHE'S THE BEST CHARACTER EVER AND IF SHE'S REAL AND IF SHE SEES THIS, THEN SHE WILL CRY! YOU MEANIES SHOULD GET SOUP POURED TO YOU FOR HATING QUEEN ELSA! There are also still a lot of any other likable things about Elsa too besides other than only just her ice magic powers, her looks and even her queen status, aren't there? Elsa was a character written to be misunderstood. The script writers and producers certainly succeeded. I don't care if someone can manipulate snow and ice, I've seen several people do it in fiction, *scoff* I really don't get why people make such a BIG DEAL about Queen Elsa!

Elsa is really the only one who did nothing. She was just a coward who had plenty of chances at the coronation to tell Anna her secret but she didn't. And she goes off, builds an ice palace, whines about her life and blames everything on Anna, who had no idea.
And best of all! Her sister comes to try and help her and when she tells her she messed up she refuses to fix her mistakes and sends a monster after her sister. - AnnaOfArendelle332

4 People like Elsa more than Anna

Well, too bad Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck never gave Anna any elemental magic superpowers the way they gave Elsa ice powers. No wonder people like Elsa more than Anna. What's Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck's problem with anybody else born with elemental powers besides Elsa? What's the big deal?

What if Anna had fire powers?

If they ever made a sequel to Frozen (which they absolutely should),
Anna has to have fire powers.  
It's just not fair that Elsa is the only one who can be badass.

5 Everybody knows a lot about her more than Anna

Elsa has basically been locked up in her room for her whole life before coronation. She had to face her fear and helplessness all by herself since she was a child. What her father told her was to stay in her room and don't show her feelings. She was being brought up that way; to hide her feeling and fear. As you people say Anna is optimistic, that is because she hasn't been through what Elsa is been through. Anna is still a strong character, and it's not like people should turn her down for that. But from the Elsa that is shown to us she wouldn't any less optimistic than Anna is she hadn't had the power. Elsa is portrayed in a way so we feel sympathetic over, in my see though Elsa is the queen, deep in her heart she needed more care and support than anyone else.

Anna kind of went through worse. After the parent's died it was all Elsa's choice, but Anna had no say, she didn't even have any idea what's going on. So stop praising Elsa and using she had a harder past as an excuse! At least Elsa knew Anna loved her! - AnnaOfArendelle332

6 Let It Go is praised more than The First Time In Forever

First of all the Let it Go song sucks. I hate Elsa and Frozen. - cosmo

Let It Go and The For The First Time In Forever are equally awesome songs.

7 Elsa almost killed Anna...TWICE

Actually, elsa almost killed anna 3 times, which is worse - panda21

Elsa does not hurt anyone on purpose. Watch the movie again.

You are so mean! Elsa is scared and afraid and insecure! She is so misunderstood. I could mistake you for Hans!

FR all elsa did was cry and whine to

8 There's an annoying fanbase of Elsa fans

Half of the Elsa fans that I met aren't annoying, but that ONE fangirl who cares about Elsa more than her OWN mother is an example of one of them and keeps typing in capitals. - JaysTop10List

9 People always blame Jennifer Lee when you say something bad about it

Well, she should've known the real villain/villainess of Frozen ought to be another snow queen who's entirely just as bad as the wicked titular original snow queen herself if Elsa entirely deserves to be another heroine of Frozen and the bad snow queen who is entirely unrelated to Elsa, she also should've known Anna deserves to be born more than just an ordinary, normal muggle, she especially should've known anybody and anybody else in the movie Frozen was also born with any different, unique kinds/types/varieties of elemental magical powers too so far besides Elsa and she entirely should've known it's entirely not fair that Elsa is the only one in the movie Frozen so far was born with elemental magical powers.

You are still insulting the character and the movie even by blaming Jennifer Lee. It's basically saying she's a good character but the person will created and developed her did a bad job making the character. - AnnaOfArendelle332

True that is so annoying.
