Top 10 Things That Have Gone from Underrated to Overrated


The Top Ten

1 Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy 4 and 5 were great, and extremely underrated. 6 and 7 are some of the greatest games of all time. 8, 9, and 10 are pretty good. Everything after is extremely overrated garbage. - hiphopgod

2 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

3 Harry Potter

I don't remember this ever being "underrated" to be honest, but the fanbase is SCARY! Worse than the Frozen fanbase (not joking)!

The first three books and movies were great, but then it went downhill and unfortunately also developed a very rabid fanbase (almost as bad as Frozen) in the process.

No, it doesn't deserve to be overrated. It ripped off a lot from Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia.

Agreed! I read the first book to see what all the hype was about, and I hated it.

4 EarthBound

Not overrated. If you think it is then you're looking at it from the wrong angle.

5 Chrono Trigger

It was never underrated.

6 Super Smash Bros.

I can kinda say yes. Nobody really cared about Smash 64, but when Nintendo started being all mysterious with Project M and hyping it up then everybody LOVED it. So no one really cared about SSB until Melee. This can kinda go in this list, but then the "Smash Bros infatuation" started like 15 years ago so it doesn't really belong here. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

No. To start it off, it isn't THAT overrated.

7 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

I agree - MeOfCourse

8 Splatoon

It's definitely overrated but still good

GET THIS TO #1 - CommanderLudwig

9 Mulan

Both the movie and the title character

It’s actually not completely fiction. The story of mulan is based off of a Japanese woman named Hua Mulan.

Get past the fact that this stars an Asian woman and you'll see that it's really not that great a movie as Buzzfeed, Upworthy, PopSugar, and all those other sites of that ilk make it out to be. And certainly not "criminally underrated".

10 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Became even more overrated after the real Notre Dame burned down

"Barely anyone even knows this movie" How, when raving about it seems to be a requirement for having Internet access at all?

Everyone on social media cries about how "underrated" it is

The comment for "Treasure Planet" (i.e. "three-quarters of Tumblr cries about how underrated something is") fits here, too.

The Newcomers

? Courage The Cowardly Dog Courage The Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

Luckily, critics are mostly just exaggerating the show's scariness and meaningfulness - xandermartin98

? SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom

The Contenders

11 Bayonetta

And people STILL say she's "underrated". What a joke.

12 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. more.

WAH... has my life become?

My god. Can we please stop all the waluigi stuff now. I agree. Kinda totally overrated... wah

13 Treasure Planet

When three-quarters of Tumblr cries about how underrated something is, it's no longer underrated let alone "so sadly underrated".

Anyone who still wants to insist on how underrated this is, call me when there's no more Jim/Ariel fanart, manips, or videos to be found.

14 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

This Show Was Never Underrated.

This Show Was Always Overrated So I Have No Idea What You're Talking About.

15 Frozen

It was always overrated. - Userguy44

Try "gone from overrated to overhated"

It actually went from neither underrated nor overrated to overrated to over-hated.

16 Bee Movie

Best anime - Not_A_Weeaboo

Yes, back in 2015, I called it "the most underrated DreamWorks film of all time" now, with all the YA LIKE JAZZ earrapes and YTPs and Speedups, I can say it is overrated. - Maddox121

17 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II.

Ahh, old story new exclamation, she can be called under rated in the early-mid 90s, but after she died in 1997, she became overrated and I would consider her overrated in the "NOOT" (National Organization of Overrated Things) in 2000. She did not just get around 5 movies, but 2 T.V. specials, more news articles than Fidget Spinners last august and still is in thumbnails on articles talking about British Women. - Maddox121

18 Apple Electronics
19 Zootopia

How quickly it made the transition to overrated is quite scary, too.

The time this was "underrated" was barely a week, if that.

20 Team Fortress 2

I love this game but I do agree it is overrated. - Pony

21 Minecraft

I kinda agree. - Userguy44

22 Channing Tatum Channing Tatum Channing Matthew Tatum is an American actor and dancer. Tatum made his film debut in the drama film Coach Carter.
23 Cave Story
24 Twilight

Twilight is the book for trolls to slag off because Edward and his family aren't killing everyone like in the usual vampire books.

25 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

Ironically, this show has actually become even MORE overrated than Ren & Stimpy

(edit: disregarding the obvious advantage it has of actually being a legitimately great show) - xandermartin98

Agree, don't like seeing cow butts - Maddox121

Why is this here?


26 Suicide Squad

It got poor reviews but everyone loves it, including me. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Phoenix Wright: OVERRULED!

41 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Actually, it is in the right rating. It is not underrated because lots of people LOVE IT, but it's not overrated because it's the shadow of Regular Show and Adventure Time and it gets plenty of hate. Nobody used to notice it, now it one of the best current CN shows.

42 Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is an anime and manga franchise originally written by Hirohiko Araki. It centers around the perilous journey of the members of the legendary Joestar bloodline.

46 The Angry Video Game Nerd
47 Undertale

To XanderMartin98:please understand that an awful lot of people hate this game by now and I personally think that this game is bland and overrated by now. I think that it might should be somewhat higher because of this.
