Top Ten Reasons Why Elsa Is a Terrible Sister

Most fan on the top ten praise Elsa more than life but here's what I think

The Top Ten

1 Almost killed Anna twice

Dur my name is Elsa but I can't control my powers! ( tosses Anna out of castle where they have to fight marshmallow to the death )
Fans -" we still love you " "I LOVE YOU ELSA! ALMOST KILLING YOU SISTER WAS FUNNY! " "Why I like Elsa : blah blah blah." - Thatgirl

Oh how kind to send a monster to almost kill your sister!

Elsa did not want to kill Anna. She did not mean to.

Yeah, Elsa does not hurt anyone on purpose.

Yeah, you tell them. You know who we mean. Those stubborn Elsa haters.

Umm... Anna derserves to die. Good job, Elsa!

2 Randomly left her sister

Dur I'm Elsa! I almost killed my sister so I'll never see her again! Anna - " are you okay? " Elsa - " GO AWAY! I don't LIKE YOU! " - Thatgirl

Why couldn't Elsa be better off being freely portrayed as an only single, sibling-less, sister-less child freely in canon?

The thing is that Elsa isn t a villain.

She never went I hate this kingdom. I m casting an eternal winter on it just because. Muahahahhaha! . Everything was really an accident that Elsa never planned for it to happen.

When she freezes Arendelle, she s just trying to escape. Elsa has no practice on her powers so she doesn t know what freezing the water in the fjord can do. She just wants to get away from there.

The reason why she pushes her sister away is because she can t stand the idea of hurting her with her powers by accident. Elsa never hated Anna. Elsa never aimed to hit her sister s head nor her heart later in the movie.

Elsa didn t create Marshmallow to be evil. He represents the sad part of Elsa who pushes people away. If you think about it, all he says is Go away . He doesn t turn evil until Anna throws a snowball at him and makes him feel attacked.

Elsa never hates Anna. She just doesn t believe what Anna is asking for is possible. ...more

3 Running away like the coward she is

Good analysis. However, I should point out that Elsa never really gives up her sense of responsibility. When she first unleashes her power and declares herself "free", she has no idea that her power is affecting other people. She assumes that she can be herself without harming anyone. When she realizes that this is not the case, she immediately tries to bring her power under control, something that she finds impossible to do. Elsa is never irresponsible; she is actually constrained by her responsibility. She feels the weight of it all the time, which is one of the reasons that "Let It Go" is so liberating. 
 Elsa is insecure, an introvert, and not exactly a lover. But she is a truly original and different Disney Queen/Princess. Unlike the other Disney pricesses she is a soul trapped in fear. Let it go, the hit Disney song attracted a lot of people. Elsa was free at last, but this would last shortly. When Anna found Elsa alone at her castle Elsa immediately switches back to her fear ...more

Yes, running away may not have been the best way to handle the situation, but can you honestly say that you wouldn't freak out to some degree if you accidentally unleashed paranormal capabilities in front of a large crowd of strangers?

At least she didn't run away from her problems and cried like a baby instead of facing them like Elsa, so I guess it's okay for her to be weak from time to time.

Now Anna is, without a doubt my favourite 'Frozen'-character! She is adorkable and funny and waaayyy more attractive then Elsa (just look at those cute freckles! ). But, of course she like almost all of the Frozen cast, eventually turned out to cheesy of a person for me to like. I was fine with her, being a little cheesy at the beginning because I thought she'd turn out to be a badass character in the end. But none of that happened! As the plot continued, Anna turned more and more into a stereotypical damsell in distress, instead of a strong heroine, like I wished her to. But hey, at least she didn't run away from her problems and cried like a baby instead of facing them like Elsa, so I guess it's okay for her to be weak from time to time.

4 Freezes the kingdom she rules

Elsa is probably the most irresponsible, poor role model to come out of animated movies in a long time. She freezes the entire kingdom trapping hundreds, if not thousands of people and preventing them from doing their work or returning to their own places. On top of this, she almost kills her sister at least 3 times, nearly kills a dozen other people throughout the movie, and the real kicker is, she never even offers an ounce of an apology. She clearly has terrible morals yet expects everything to be handed to her. After all of these outright terrible things that would account for at least a dozen felonies in any country around the world, she comes back to "her" kingdom, throws a little dust in the air, and suddenly everyone loves her. The original plot had her being an antagonist and it's easy to see why. Her character is so unlikable it should alienate anybody who watches this with even a slight sense of moral worth. Think about it, Elsa never once offers an apology or explanation ...more

Dur I'm Elsa! Anna - " can I marry--" Elsa - no I do not want to go to another event because I might kill someone! Anna - what? Elsa - AHH! ( freezes kingdom ) - Thatgirl

That is something Trump would do - TwilightKitsune

Yep, she freezes her kingdom. Pretty irrisponsible to me - panda21

Elsa didn't mean to freeze her kingdom. She was only scared because her parents misunderstood her.

5 She looks evil

I hate how people like Elsa haters are saying Elsa should've been evil in canon. The writers of Frozen rewrote Elsa as a good character instead because they wanted to try something different! The whole "Evil Queen" thing has been done to death! Part of the rewriting was also because a personal note from John Lasseter whose son was going through some nasty stages. If you want the full sad story, then watch "The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic".

Elsa is not even portrayed to be evil, but she is overrated.

Stupid Jennifer Lee and stupid Chris Buck really should've created and included another snow queen who is really portrayed to be evil like the titular original snow queen if Elsa really deserves to be another heroine of Frozen, not even portrayed to be evil.

Have you seen her make up?! She should really be the villain - Thatgirl

Another villain/villainess should've been another snow queen who is really bad like the titular original snow queen if Elsa really deserves to another heroine of Frozen. Frozen haters are really disappointed in Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, angry and furious at and with Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck for not creating and including another snow queen who is really evil like the titular original snow queen. You guys are so mean to Elsa! Elsa is the eldest so she is more mature for wearing more makeup! Plus she's 21. She's an adult. Anna is still a teenager she's 18. And you guys need to watch your language. Even though it's a MOVIE you don't need to be so rude. Anna and Elsa are both very lovely girls but it's a movie. Every one has their own opinions.

~Hans x Elsa/Anna x Elsa~
Why do I even need to explain my hatred for these couples? Hans uses Anna, and tried to kill Elsa. Why do people ship them together? These pairings annoy me just as much as people saying Elsa should be evil. No.

6 Everyone loves her even though Anna was the one that not only fixed stupid Elsa's problems but still loved her and would risk her life for her even though Elsa tried to kill her so she still used the last ounce of her strength to save her.

Elsa is insecure, an introvert, and not exactly a lover. But she is a truly original and different Disney Queen/Princess. Unlike the other Disney pricesses she is a soul trapped in fear. Let it go, the hit Disney song attracted a lot of people. Elsa was free at last, but this would last shortly. When Anna found Elsa alone at her castle Elsa immediately switches back to her fear mode as she clearly states she is a fool for all she has done. Anna reassures Elsa but it it isn't enough so Elsa accidentally freezes Anna again. Not knowing this, she sends Anna away by making Marshmallow the abdominal snowman. And as for Elsa, she loses control of her powers again starts ruining her castle. Within minutes, some castle guards arrive and take Elsa to prison. Elsa escapes and Anna helps her unfreeze the blasting winter. Over all Anna represents happiness and love and Elsa represents protection and caringness. Elsa and Anna are two lovable sisters but so different from each other. Be yourself!

Just bold. What did Elsa do? Hm let's see.. Problems, death, ice, stupid, evil, stupid, stupid, yeah all she has is ice powers. Big whoop. Heat beats ice to if I fart hard enough on her she'll melt. - Thatgirl

Elsa does not hurt anyone on purpose. Elsa did not want to kill Anna. She did not mean to.

Elsa did not want to kill Anna. She did not mean to. Elsa does not hurt anyone on purpose.

You can't fix someone's fear. And any other emotion. - rockishlittlegirl

7 Doesn't go to parents' funeral

Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, just because Elsa has powers doesn't mean you can't let her go to her own parents' funeral and I tell you two that right now. This is all your fault for making Elsa missing her own parents' funeral. You made Elsa miss her own parents' funeral. You two did that on purpose. You two are going to be so guilty for this and that. You will regret the choice you made. What were you two thinking making Elsa missing her own mother and father's funeral? Are you insane or what? Elsa never ever even deserve to miss her own parents' funeral. We Anna and Elsa fans really feel angry and upset. You two could've let us see Elsa at her parents' funeral alongside her little sister Anna. Making Elsa missing her own parents' was the stupidest choice that the two of you have ever made. Why did you make Elsa miss her own parents' funeral? Why didn't you let Elsa go to her own parents' funeral? How come you didn't let Elsa go to her parents' funeral with her little sister Anna? ...more

Stupid writers and directors of Frozen should never ever even make Elsa miss her own parents' funeral.

Elsa's so called parents decided to lock their own little girl up and neither of them allowed her to have any contact with anybody else at all, not even let her out of her room at all either. I don't know why the hell neither of them came up with another BETTER idea at all like they should've back then before, I understand Elsa very well. I only make them understand, that neither of them WERE GOOD PARENTS AT ALL, AND THAT NEITHER OF THEM HAD TO FORBID POOR ELSA FROM ALWAYS USING HER SPECIAL ICE MAGIC POWERS ALL THE TIME NOR MAKE HER MISS THEIR FUNERAL CEREMONY. Neither of them really deserved to be Elsa's parents at all anyway, did they?  (To Elsa's parents the rulers/king and queen of Aren-delle) If your little girl, Elsa was born with a magic curse that could get worse because of her fear towards the powers, then don't try to help her with the fear at all. Instead of showing her how to accept, love her and be herself in order to embrace not only just her ice magic powers but also ...more

I think that represented how low and fearful and guilty Elsa felt. She didn't go out because she was afraid she'd let her powers out. And that she'd see Anna. She wasn't prepared for that. And,the only moment she got out of her room was when she was saying goodbye to her parents when they were about to travel. Maybe it was too much for her at the time. - rockishlittlegirl

I'd put Anna and Elsa back together after their parents died in a shipwreck and let Elsa go to her parents' funeral alongside her little sister Anna if I were those stupid writers of Frozen.

8 Didn't give a crap about Anna until she died

She was responsible for her death - TwilightKitsune

IKR? Elsa didn't seem to show any love to Anna until she died.

Techanly she did die so ya... - Thatgirl

9 Elsa wouldn't let Hans and Anna marry each other

This isn't bad because love at first sight can be dangerous because you don't even know the person that much - watchandgame101

Elsa shut all the German fairytales down QUICK!

10 She's ugly

Her eyebrows make me want to puke - EleenFirePrincess

Well she's not ugly. She ranks number 6 on my prettiest DP list right after Anna. Although I dislike Elsa, I still think she's pretty like every other Disney Princess.

Queen Elsa Of Arendelle: (gasping in shock being insulted and hurt by Eleen's insults, started sobbing, burying her face in her hands, fleeing in tears) Did you just call me ugly and say my eyebrows make you want to puke? Oh, how could you say such awful things about me like that? Huh? How dare you badmouth me like that? I rather pretend I never ever even hear you badmouthing me like that.

Princess Anna Of Arendelle: Eleen, how dare badmouth my sister Elsa like that? Huh? How dare you call my sister Elsa ugly and say her eyebrows make you want to puke? Huh? You take that back. You made my sister cry. Nobody ever even insults my sister like that, makes her cry and gets away with it. How would you like it if I insult your sister Iris? Huh? Well?

The Contenders

11 She is dumb

She is stupid. She don't understand Anna loved her until her sister almost died.

Elsa is not dumb. Elsa is smart and intelligent like Hermione Granger.

Yeah because running away from everything, despite the consequence is SO smart and intelligent. - AnnaOfArendelle332

12 Elsa is such a baby

A huge butt - Gamecubesarecool193

I agree

13 Elsa is pessimistic

Elsa :(yells) GO AWAY ANNA! (shoots anna's heart with ice). Yeah Elsa real mature! What a cowardly, rude, coldhearted queen. If she was in Massachusetts in 1692 in the Salem Witch Trials, she'd be dead already, because they'd put her as a sorceress.

20 Elsa is more like a little sister than Anna

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! 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 ...more

See if Elsa was the younger one I may like her more, but it seems like even though Elsa was the first born, Anna was more of the older sister.

At least Anna acutually checks on Elsa to see if she safe - watchandgame101

It's ironic that younger siblings are more of older siblings, isn't it? It's also ironic that older siblings are of younger siblings too, isn't it? How come that brat, Elsa's portrayed to be the older sister when Anna should've been portrayed to be the older sister and Elsa should've been portrayed to be the younger sister instead? Huh? 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, ...more
